Beach Babe.. a poem by my 15yr old niece about moi!

Sunshine Queen at seventeen,
She's kept that title living,
Bronze statue, with breasts supreme,
Goddess of sugar-free dieting.

Amazonian independence, she needs no man.
She wears bright smiles, and bright shoes,
To bring out that year round tan,
She is the sunshine's muse.

February/March highlights and blahs

Goddamn.. I'm so glad to be back in Ottawa.. I am so looking forward to spring when I can plant some rosebushes... buy some backyard furniture and read books in my backyard while I get a tan instead of heading to the tanning booth. Last year I had absolutely no use of my balcony in my Toronto apt because they were noisily jackhammering, sandblasting and then re-cementing them. It took the whole freaking summer and I only got the use of my balcony back in time for my new year's party. All my friends that were over for that pretty well are smokers so it was either have a balcony or host the party somewhere else since smoking is forbidden in my abode. Anyway.. winter is long enough without having access to sunshine in the summer as well!
My living room window lets in tons of sunlight in the new house.. plus upstairs I have a skylight!
I do miss my friends in Toronto and was supposed to head back there this past weekend for a party at Leanne Fluxx (fellow jerkygirls etc performer) and several other friends I miss dearly. I got that stupid flu bug but because of my fibro I don't really get the flue properly and get it over with.. I just get a bit achy, coughy, no fever and just generally blah. I was very disappointed that I wasn't well enough to drive never mind hit the party.. but I've learned to respect when my body is telling me to rest. I console myself with the fact that this summer there will be plenty of other parties to attend and I now have made enough new industry friends in Toronto and other friends who are supportive of what I do that I can visit and have various offers of places to crash all over the city.
Again.. I've said it before.. but this past couple years of being 'out' has been very rewarding. Living a double life as an escort sucks. Always worrying about who will find out. This way.. let them. I have been so rewarded with friendships of people supportive of what I do that it's more than made up for the ones who didn't.
So! The sun is shining on this sunday morning and I am not hungover.. but I'm sure I missed a good party and am looking forward to seeing the pics posted on facebook in the next couple days.. as I'm sure there will be!
Oh. I am delighted that I found an organic beer in the liquor store near me in Westboro that is mild and yummy! I hope they start carrying it at bars so I can enjoy it there.. It's called Mill St. brewery and it's made in Toronto. Anyone never having been to the Toronto Brewery district.. make it a priority in the summer. Great beers to sample, live music and art :)
