Re: NYC Expatriates Topic

Yikes! I didn't mean to imply that I PREFERRED Miami to New York, simply that I enjoyed its club scene, and it WAS a lot of fun. There is an element of sleaze and hedonism in the city's nightlife that reminded me of how things used to be here. Even Iggy Pop agrees on that. Of course, I was there during the Winter Music Conference when all the best and brightest DJs and clubgoers from around the world converge on the city, so undoubtedly I experienced the creme de la creme.

I am really shocked that the two of you NEVER REALLY had Edwin. True he is a notorious chubby chaser, but he also has a fierce fetish for old men. I was his youngest lover ever. All either of you would have had to do is flash a little liver spot and that huge dominican snake could have been yours. See botox, male girdles, and sheep placenta are good for the over fifty crowd in one respect, but not everyone goes for that super moisterized, clinique bronzed, dye job "mature" man effect.

Re: Miss Understood's Hi from Thailand

They got here okay. We went to the Bangkok Weekend Market. It's probably the best shopping place in the world! So many interesting and colorful things. I got some green silk to have pants made. Between the silk and the tailor it'll cost about $24. How could I ever go back to buying off the rack??? I'm still a little heartbroken over the end of my 5 day relationship in Chiang Mai. At home I go very long periods of time without getting that close to anyone.

We've been 120% impressed and inspired by Jojo and his art since the day we laid eyes on him close to 10 years ago. Which incidentally was the very first night we ever went out clubbing in Chicago. From his dolls, to his drawings, sculptures, installations costumes, character exploration, hair and makeup skills, Whatever Jojo touches becomes beautiful and mystical.

No, Bridgette they didn't close the whole club. People who were already inside were allowed to stay, and the music and dancing and everything else continued as normal. Customers were not disturbed. But the FDNY-NYPD inspectors made us shut down the front door so no one else could come in. Top management was walking around all nervous, etc. At the end of it they found a few minor violations, but everything was pretty much okay.

As a granddaughter of Truman he really seems to be in touch with the early 21st century. The one Truman & Andy Warhol saw coming. Just what we need... another enigma.
