I just signed the following petition addressed to: Arizona Sentate, Arizona State Legislature, Debbie Lesko.

Stop the Arizona birth control Bill

If this bill passes the senate then women of Arizona would be forced to provide documentation that birth control is for medical purposes only. The "company" would not be required to cover birth control if it was for prevention of conception. Additionally this bill would give companies the right to fire women if they discovered that she was using a contraceptive to prevent pregnancy


If you have to ask why I think this is important...well, just don't. div>

If you are wanting to attend my showcase on the 30th, you really, really want to get tickets through me - the $12 is reasonable, and the $22 at the door is way over priced.

I will be able to purchase tickets - but the last day that I will be able to do so is THIS FRIDAY! I need to know by call or text by 3:30 on Friday. Before noon on Friday I can be reached by email or internet.

01:16 pm: Dance Showcase!
I'll be in the Fifth Avenue Dance Studio's Spring showcase. I'll be doing a Tango to the Assassin's Tango from the movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Here's the details:

Friday March 30th 9PM (Come a bit early to get a good seat, usually the sides are best)
Tickets are $12 through me, and $22 at the door.

The studio is located on 3rd and Wall on the North side of Wall in Seattle. Their exact address and directions are here.

Hope to see some of you at the show. I will say this for those that have not been - it's not a pro-show, but it's where I am dancing.

She's started a blog over on blogger called "A Yankee Girl Down Under". I've successfully managed to syndicate it over to LJ.

If you want to follow here you can find her here: mellissainoz

Since she doesn't follow on LJ, if you want to comment, head over to the actual blog.

(And sometime I'll try getting back here to write, really.)

02:36 pm: A friend needs help with her kitty....
She can tell you better than I can, but a friend of mine is unemployed and money is super tight and their cat Julius is in desperate need of dental surgery.

There's two ways you can help, straight up donation, or buy stuff from her Etsy store. She has some fantastic jewelry at good prices, and it would really help her out.

Her donation (and more detailed plea) can be found here: http://rhienelleth.livejournal.com/643407.html

And her store can be found here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/byzantiumlotus?ref=si_shop

Thanks everyone for listening.

Also, someday I'll try to get back to updating here. :)

01:56 pm: Showcase July 29th Last Call for Tickets!
Once again I'm participating in the studio's Showcase.

I'll be doing a medley to "Devil in Disguise" by Elvis. It's from the Lilo and Stitch soundtrack, and as such we will be costumed as Lilo and Stitch. It's a fun little routine, and I'm pretty pleased with it.

Tickets through me are $12 now or it's $25 at the door. Show starts at 7pm and should end by 10.

The studio web site is here for directions and address: Fifth Avenue Dance Studio

Let me know if you want tickets.

03:33 pm: I'm feeling particularly crappy today
With the last couple of trips out with friends and family out in the sunshine of summer, and yet another doctor's visit coming up mixed with the usual crazy of my family I've been feeling very down.

And while I'm going to try and distract myself so I don't spend the day in the dumps, here's a poem I wrote recently about it all.

Memories in Contrast

I remember when I could play in sunlight
Without fear and pain
I remember when Summer meant swimming and boating
Instead of rashes and heatstroke
I remember when I could work all day and dance all night
Without loosing two days to exhaustion
I remember when I could dance, and fly
When someone could lift me
I remember when I could clean my house
Without being unable to do anything else
I remember when my hair was a mane
Instead of a thin rat tail

I remember when I wasn't sick

I remember when people didn't assume I was lying about
What I eat
What exercise I get
I remember when doctors tried to find an answer
Not just assume this is normal
I remember when people believed me when I said I was sick,
Not telling me to just love myself as I am.
