PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Voice of Christmas Wallet

Repeat after me, "It is not necessary to buy a gift for every person I know." Think of people you'd want on a deserted island with you. That's who you buy gifts for, if that. Others get cards with personalized notes, if that. This is not Scrooge talking. It is the

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Holidays

How did everyone fair for Thanksgiving? Hopefully the holiday was divided between comfortable family time spent overeating and relaxed good times with friends overdrinking. I went to Oregon with The Italian to meet his family (nervous stomach and gnashing of the teeth start here). My qualms were quickly put to

So I'm living vicariously through my friend Sebastian. He had the superb pleasure of attending the Depeche Mode concert last Wednesday night.  I was busy working like a good girl.  Sebastian had 11th-row seats (the bastard). He kindly recounted the whole concert for me, vividly conveying everything I missed. They

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: 100th Birthday

Spent Thursday at my dad's in Olympia for his 100th birthday. Just kidding. His wife, Susan, and I loaded his poor cake with so many candles that by the time we got them all lit, the frosty underneath had become a liquefied pool of chocolate and wax. That got a

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Halloween

 Robcat escorted me to Sanford & Son's Haunted House last Thursday. We signed waivers, which I did not read and should have. I admit I'm the biggest chicken about creepy bump in the night stuff. My imagination runs rampant. The scary rooms were fertile ground for inventing more spook than

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Hell's Kitchen

Hell's Kitchen will have karaoke again beginning sometime in November. Splendid Vengance front man Vinny Vegas will host on Tuesday nights. Vegas equals super-fun. Oooohhhh, maybe he'll let me stroke his chest hair. Monday, Oct. 17 Nick Vigarino plays Delta blues slide guitar like nobody's business. The Swiss had a modest crowd

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Christmas in September

Took Taylor to lunch at Wild Orchid for her birthday this week and did a little Halloween shopping. I am always amazed at how early stores get the jump on holidays. Christmas stuff sold in September. Easter decorations sold in February. Fourth of July in March. It kinda makes it

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Opa!

Hello, boys and girls, lusty lads and horny hotties, diddlers and donut doers. Depeche Mode has let me down, just not as badly as NIN or Duran Duran let me down. Call it artistic growth, necessary change or refer to musical evolution. I don't care. I am convinced that some of

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Hanging out with the Frenchman

Two things  First, where is the good looking Carson Daly from 1997? Why has he been replaced with the too tan, too thin buzz-cut hair having, suit-wearing Carson?  That's bad. Quit it. I want the T-shirt wearing Carson back. Second, why is everybody freaking out that Kate Moss does nose candy? Yes, I

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: 21 Commerce

Friday, Sept. 23 Arriving fashionably late with Miss Rose, I met Armani suit-wearing Kansas at 21 Commerce's  front doors and proceeded to have a fabulous night. 21 Commerce should have chiggity-checked itself before it wriggity-wrecked itself by having a self-confessed beer-tender manning its martini bar in the Skyy Lounge for its two-year

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Goodbye Summer

Say goodbye to summer. I know, I know, but admit it - it's over.   Wednesday, Sept. 14 Caught Black Rebel Motorcycle Club at Nuemo's for Ebony and The Italian's birthdays. BRMC's new music is so much mellower than their last two albums.  Anyone who went thinking she was going to rock out

Forget the small talk.  Let's jump right in to last week's Weekly Volcano 200th issue party: Saturday, Sept. 10 Holy crap! The Weekly Volcano Party was the bomb. Tommy Carson is such a badass dresser. I loved his zoot suit. Pappi Swarner and Lady S made quite the darling pair. DJ Jomama

Ramble, Ramble, Ramble. I forgot to refill my ADD meds. Just joking - or am I? There are 150 different beers to try, all singles for under $3, at MSM Deli on Sixth Avenue. Get a killer sammy and drink your beer on the patio in broad daylight. Whoa. Thanks, hot-tippers Joe and

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Clown Face

Has anyone else noticed the clown face kids? The first one I saw I was like, whoa, lay off the Ritalin. After seeing a couple more of these kids in different areas of town, I was like, ohhhh this is bad. One thin pre-teen looking boy was giving attitude to

Summer breeze makes me feel disincline I've been kinda sick lately. I haven't been doing much. Summertime sickness is the worst. There's something especially vile about a runny nose and hacking cough in 80-degree weather. Healthy people give you extra space in grocery lines, pulling their children close to their legs like

Thursday, July 14 GG met me at the Boneyard in time to catch Sea Jayne Trip do a killer version of beloved Afghan Whigs' song "My Curse," originally sung by Scrawl's Marcy Mays in '93, but Tiffany handled the vocals well. I hope there'll be more of that. GG and I

Friday, July 18 T-town Represent piled in the car and roared off for Olympia at 7:30 p.m. only to be stalled by inching traffic on I-5 South. Why is it easier to sit in traffic if you know that some cars got crushed or that sweaty, rough looking men are working

Sunday night dinners with my urban family are sensational.  It's so chill. Rose made the most incredible spaghetti sauce and Unkie Troy supplied the meat (doesn't he always). Seven of us crowded into the living room to watch "VH1's Least Metal Moments" and howled with laughter. Images of Celine Dion
