What’s cracking me up today

Pillow Talk (Slate, 12/15/2016)




Right here is where you pay… in sweat

I went to the Dreamscape dance performance at the Lincoln Theatre last night put on by CityDance, a D.C. organization that offers several programs to bring dance “to transform lives and communities through dance.” Debbie Allen hosted the event and they opened with the performers dancing to the chorus of Fame.

The performance was great, with all sorts of dance forms represented including ballet, modern, tap, ballroom, and African. Of course we weren’t allowed to take photos during the performance, but I was surprised when an usher told me I couldn’t take a pic of the stage before the show began. Personally, I think that’s ridiculous and puts the ushers in a bad situation since everyone’s doing it. Including me. 🙂

I did not take photos during the performance, but many other people did. Honestly, venues need to come up with a better solution than telling people not to do it. I recommend they create an online repository of images that people should be free to share on social media, which would hopefully reduce people taking their own shots while encouraging publicity.


To Infinity Mirrors… and beyond!

I’m not a connoisseur of modern art, but a friend of mine had extra tickets to the Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirror Rooms exhibit at the Hirschorn Museum in D.C. today and since I like trying new things, I jumped at the chancce. I Googled about the show before I went and I was blown away at how popular it was. I had no. idea. Apparently it was almost impossible to get tickets, so I’m very grateful I had the chance to see it myself.

The show was interesting and some of the mirror rooms were amazing. It’s just too bad that because of the demand and the small size of the rooms, you only got 20 seconds in each one to really take them in.

Here are some of my shots from the exhibit, inside and outside the infinity mirror rooms.

After all the lineups, we were pretty peckish afterwards, so we stopped at Oyamel where I enjoyed some chips and salsa, Caesar salad, and a light margarita. All in all, a great way to celebrate both a Saturday afternoon and Cinco de Mayo!


A powerful message

“No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life.”

Beautifully said, Jimmy. And congratulations on the birth of your new son!

Ellen DeGeneres is awesome

I remember watching her coming out episode and the fallout from it. It’s awful that 20 years later there’s still so much discrimination, fear, and sometimes even hatred of the LGBTQ community, but today is a day to celebrate Ellen and her amazing act of courage—an act that helped those who came after her and that played such an important part in the many advances that have been made for gay, lesbian, and trans rights over the last two decades.

Happy 20th anniversary, Ellen!

Wait… I’m supposed to be scared of these?

When I was in Grade 5 or 6, I was walking home from school when I saw a bunch of boys in front of one of their houses looking inside a big box in the yard. These boys were definitely on the bully spectrum and when I saw one of them looked up at me, I knew something bad was about to happen.

I ran as hard as I could to my house and when I reached the safety of my own yard, I turned around to see what horror the boy was intent on inflicting on me. He stood there grinning, waving a snake in my face.

“Oh, is that all it is?” I asked. “A snake???” I moved closer to get a better look.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more disappointed look in my life.

I saw this beauty sunning himself when I was walking around Lake Elkhorn in Columbia, Maryland.
