5 Things I Love This Week

1. Chaz Bono- I actually loved how last week put trans culture in the spotlight, though I was ridiculously frustrated by how the announcement about Bono was received. Super depressing when people are so ugly about something they clearly do not understand! This is one thing I have been thinking about lately; what makes people receive difference so consistently as a threat? Why is someone being different than you invalidating your own life? Are people really that insecure? So, though I have only ever watched light chunks of that show, I felt riled up enough last week that I would become a committed voter, though of course we will have to see how long that lasts.
2.Actually being more than halfway on my list. That makes me so happy.
3. Having visitors- I really like hosting people in our house, but I think The Boy is happy once we have the space back to ourselves.
4.That I am going to see Petey in 9 days! I miss my nephew. I wish my niece was coming too!!!
5. Isabella Blow- Ok, I know I am late to this party, but good lord, she is amazing. Check her in this hat! She was the muse of Philip Tracy and tragically committed suicide only a few years ago. She reminds me of a Bauhaus or Deco muse, timeless and heart-wrenching. I am looking forward to having time to poke around and learn even more about her.
