Checking In

Have enjoyed a grand weekend in the Big Smoke with one of my esteemed cobloggers, the loverly and talented Isabel. Went to a ‘grindhouse’-themed burlesque show Friday night; The Art House Cabaret @ Buddies in Bad Times Theatre Saturday. Have experienced more deliciously debased cultural events in one weekend than I have in years.

Will attempt to write a proper recap sometime on Monday (but don’t quote me on that – am notorious for not following through in the past on similar promises).

Am totally out of the loop with regards to what’s going on in the world, so my apologies for not posting anything of real substance. The Thin Black Duke has a good round up of less meringue-like offerings to keep y’all satiated until I get back into the proper swing of things. Also check out Todd’s post @ Shakesville on totally gay pulp fiction (which perfectly ties into Saturday night’s activities, of which I shall hopefully–hopefully–expand upon tomorrow) and Kyle once again poking the miniature elephant at the mother ship (hey, my hands are hardly clean in this regard).

Update: Ok, this is substantial: Marti Abernathey has the latest on ENDA and HRC (which as of late has become more and more comfortable accepting its apparent role as the rainbow branch of the Democratic National Committee’s communication department).
