I booked my flight to Portland today. One way. January 5th, 2001.

I'm just about set with an apartment and my car is all set to be shipped. I need to call UPS about getting my stuff to Portland and Gateway to get boxes for my computer. I bought a featherbed and four-star goose down comforter at JC Penny's yesterday.

Countdown to the big move: 35 days

I want these!

Before you freak out about the thought of buying shoes from Ebay, know that they are brand new. I may be skanky, but I'm not that skanky! :)

Tiffany is back!

When I was a kid in the '80's, I was a die hard Debbie Gibson fan. My sister was viewed as a traitor by my cousin and I because she liked Tiffany. Don't even get me started on the girl who lived down the block who liked Whitney Houston!

Vegas pulls semi-nude Prince poster. McCarran International Airport doesn't want such a picture displayed in their "family-oriented" facility.

Family oriented? And Las Vegas is simply the holy land of the United States! They don't call it Sin City for nothing.

Can the Florida legislature bypass the courts and appoint the state's 25 members of the Electoral College?

Sen. Joe Lieberman says nay!

β€œI do think this action by the Florida Legislature really threatens the credibility and legitimacy of the ultimate choice of electors in Florida,” the Connecticut senator said. β€œIt threatens to put us into a constitutional crisis.”

I think it's a little late for that, Joe.

this is an incredible article from the village voice called 'black blood is cheap.' if only this would happen: "some black militants argue that if reno had the guts some of her defenders insist she has, she would have the fbi arrest Giuliani for inciting the police shootings, beatings, and criminalizing of his african american constituents."
