5 Things About Thursday 24th January, 2008.

  • Mandarin & sandalwood shampoo. Jojoba and lavender conditioner. Sandalwood body wash. Seriously, I smell pretty good right now and kind of like someone's front yard.
  • I am so bone tired I can't even begin to tell you. I woke up a heap of times last night and lay there not feeling sleepy at all. I nearly took a pill, but then in the back of my mind I thought of Heath, and logical or not that stayed my hand.
  • Because I have kind and generous friends, I scored a freebie dvd player last night! They upgraded and didn't have a use for their old one, so passed it on after reading my blog post about going to buy a dvd player. Isn't that cool?
  • I'm going to go and get a sweet, hot boyfriend. Hey, anyone got one they're not using?
  • This time next week I will have seen Rufus Wainwright (aka my boo) in concert and will be basking in the afterglow. Oh yes I will.

Rufus! You'll have a TIME.

Tell me how that sweet, hot boyfriend thing works out. At this point, I think I'd be happy to recycle for someone who has upgraded.

Mikey (TLE) said...

Not wishing to "one-up" (hyphenated or not?) but by this time next week I will have seen The Roofster twice in two nights. the first night from second row, centre. Woohoo!

I was very distressed about Heath actually. Did you read the story (SMH) about some wacky US baptist group who want to picket his funeral because he played a... gasp... homoxual in Brokeback? Now where did I put my gun?

The Other Andrew said...

Michael, this'll be the second time I have seen him and the first time was in a more intimate cabaret sort of setting. My expectations are high, based on experience.

Mikey, stop showing off. :)

Yes, the Heath thing is very distressing. That crowd are probably the same one that has been known to attend gay funerals, of AIDS patients or gay bashing victims for example, with the whole "God Hates Fags" "Fags Burn In Hell" etc placards. Such good Christians.

I was totally shaken by Heath Ledger's death too. I surprised myself because it wasn't like I knew him or anything--although he did go to the high school next to mine!

As for the picketers..

I believe they are equal opportunity in their hatred. They also picket funerals of soldiers who died in Iraq because they see their death as God's punishment for Americans tolerating homosexuals. Very Christian. The father of one of the soldiers just sued successfully for millions.

On a happier note: sandalwood is one of my most favorite scents!

Mindy said...

Yep, same bunch of idiots. Sometimes I wish there was a God, just so they could get an awful shock when they went to enter the pearly gates and got kicked out on their arses down to the hot end.

if you accidently fall on a straight one while you're hoovering in the nude, send him my way huh? ;-)

Michael said...

Amen, Mindy. It is indeed Fred Phelps crew that will picket. Forgive me for saying it, but they've practically taken hate to a high comedic art. If you've never seen Fred's wife, the lovely Shirley Phelps, you owe it to yourself to YouTube her.

Andrew, I knew you'd seen him before, and in a very intimate setting. If his tour there is anything like what I saw last summer, it'll still have a light and intimate feeling, even though it's in a larger venue. SO jealous!

better yet, a sweet hot boyfriend with an energy drink!

bernard said...

Ok, I have a hot sweet boyf named Rufus currently free to a good home; unfortunately he is allergic to sadndalwood, jojba and lavender. Those smells turn him straight unfortunately...

Thinking of Heath may have kept you awake, but probably the thought was more about "I only have 'x' of these beautiful angel-inducing babies left"...

As for the Phelps...
Mindy - suggest just a few changed letters to make it more appropriate

"kicked out on" to

"xxcked up the"

Just remember- every time u see a rainbow, god is having gay sex.
