Single straight girl in the house.

Susan is being kept too busy to blog? She must be bursting at the seams with thoughts of last nights spectacle...For Sarah's birthday we could have taken her anywhere. But alas, P-Town is just up the road and we have been waiting for a reason to go, even if it doesn't make any sense. So, Lorna got tickets to the "Drag Show". Done. To Edwige for dinner and the best dirty martini I have had, then "Showgirls" for a little entertainment. Surrounded by gay men we flourished in the back row at the Crown & Anchor ("Clown & Anger" as the tiny Korean comedian called it). What can I say? A song about sharting, pube shaving performance act, Rollerskating Drag Queen; just brilliance all around. But the best birthday surprise was when Risa was introduced from the New York band "Jesus H. Christ and the Four Hornsmen of the Apocalypse". Over here on the farm we LOVE this band. Sarah was sure to mention that her husband knows ALL the words to the songs on their last album. She kindly gave us the NEW album that HASN'T EVEN COME OUT YET so Steve and I are studying hard today so we can all laugh and laugh together later.

There is not enough ibuprofin in this ibuprofin

Violent stomach flu. Nausea. 2 hour car ride with no a/c. Uneventful rehearsal dinner. Svenson the crazy cat attacking my toes while I slept. Loud 'ethnic' music on my sisters street all night. No interest in food. Shortest wedding ceremony, ever. Nice reception. 1/2 of my Filet Mignon. As much pinot grigio as I could put back. Difficulty dancing in the floor length gown. Avoiding bouquet that landed at my feet. Pretending I did not have a broken heart and digestive system. Driving home to get to Wellfleet in time. Sleeping in the parking lot at the beachcomber with wet dog. No phone calls. Major cramps just in time for work today.

I really am a positive person. Just highlighting the negatives of the last week.

Ted and Karen' s baby finally came out. So we got a cute baby boy this week, and that's always good.
