PERMANENT LIPSTICK: East West Cafe

Wednesday, Feb. 23 MS. DANI YELL and I tried out the newest installment of EAST WEST CAFE in Proctor District.  The wine was good if a little spendy, but the flavor of the food made up for it.  The décor is well thought out too. Across the street, I spotted ALFREDO,

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Love of Food

  I have a love of food.  I am not ashamed to say it.  I dream of food and wake ravenous each day.  In the winter, I can tell if I am getting a cold by how hungry I am upon rising. As I go my merry way planning my days around

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Smoking Ban

When THE SMOKING BAN was passed last year, I was secretly glad.  No obnoxious drunk friends accidentally burning me or my clothes.  No smoke in the eyes. No longer would the first person finished at dinner light up and ruin the rest of our appetites. No more clothes smelling like

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Time Travel

It's about time travel this week.  Not the kind that movies are about, the real kind. For example, FISHBONE played HELL'S KITCHEN a few weeks back. I was digging the whole scene, laughing, slamming back shots, talking to JEB, and the next thing I know I am home, waking up

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Did ya miss me?

Did ya miss me? Did you grab the paper last Thursday, feverishly flip through the pages looking for your Ginger Fix, and then when you couldn't find me was the pain so great you had to go on a three-day bender?  Apparently most of the South Sound felt this way,

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Fish Face Meanie

After taking a cab to run errands and paying out $15, I alternated between being pissed at the cons and recognizing and appreciating the pros.  I would have spent $5 on gas, stressed about my expired tags, kept a sharp eye on the side mirror for cops, raged at slow

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: The Best

I think they call it ADD. I'm not sure. I wasn't paying attention.  In the past, it was spacey, stoned, airheaded, easily entertained or random. Of all the labels for that skipping brain sensation, I like RANDOM. Random thoughts burning trails across your brain at whiplash speeds. Yeah, I like it like that.

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Reality Show

So I have been holding my own REALITY SHOW in my bedroom. Before anyone gets worked up, it ain't that kind of show!  I bought a fish tank more than a year ago as a housewarming present for myself in September 2003. October 2004 I dusted it off and finally

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: The Guilty Highway

THE GUILT HIGHWAY. We have all traveled it at one point in our lives. This time of year, it's especially easy to accidentally be taken for a ride. If you're lucky, you'll recognize the signs.  In my opinion, the hardest one to spot is MANIPULATION AVENUE. It looks like something

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Thank God For Cabs

  In New York, it's an easy reality that a good percentage of the population will never own a car.  Taxi cabs, the subway, private company cars and busses are available and used regularly by people of all ages and races, class ranges and

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Lady Luck

I'm standing in line with my groceries. I decide I can't wait to eat my Starbursts and open the bag. Inside are mini packs. I rip one open: two candies, each individually wrapped. I now have a handful of trash, and the lady behind me (who's a close stander) keeps

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Jaunt to Seattle

Anytime I get out of town, I feel like the verse from Primus' song "Jerry was a Race Car Driver."  A verse in it says, "it was a rare occasion that he did."  Change the he to a me, I mean she, and that is how often I escape the

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: College Guy

After busting my booty all week on those fine projects called work, I felt I deserved a little me time. The hot tub at the gym I belong to is a great place to unwind. I take my earplugs and eye mask to block out the site and sound of

PERMANENT LIPSTICK: Halloween The Big Fat Blur

Halloween: The Big Fat Blur Being the mildly SUPERSTITIOUS GIRL that I am, Halloween freaks me out, especially this year.  First of all, for anyone who's counting (it might just be me) this is the 13th Permanent Lipstick in this rag.  Is it coincidence that it's the same issue in which

Wednesday, Oct. 20 Sitting at THE BONEYARD bar, Jamaine and I kept dissolving into giggles.  Maybe it was 'cause we were DOING THE ROBOT on our barstools or maybe it was TONY D (Divine Cypher & Lurid) "THE DOUBLE FISTIN' MISTER" who was in fact drinking two beers simultaneously in mourning
