This up and coming queen can be seen in and around Hamburg, Germany. And Nicki is making quite the waves and strides in Germany, with performances out in all the chic nightclubs and festivals. She is also currently trying out for a drag race German version of the show. Ms.Dynamite has already put out her own music, which sounds pretty good to me! I do believe we could use another "international on our on drag race, and I'm thinking Nicki may be just the entertaining ticket!!!!
It's always so hard to find a new salon and a hair stylist that one can click with, sometimes a downright frustrating, and stressful time. About two years ago I did a post on that when my longtime stylist was leaving to go to another salon to far for me to travel. Talk about a upsetting time!!!! In time and after three salons, I did indeed find another salon that fits me and what I look for. I have been happy ever since, and the stylist who cuts my hair is so cool. I love carrying on and cutting up! I always like to have someone who is also like a good bartender, someone who can tell you about the latest "hot" items or styles, and someone you can have fun with, and tell you the truth about your ideas. The place where I go is always busy, bustling, but Saturday I was over bright and early, the second person in as a matter of fact, which was so nice, as I'm not much of a morning person. Now I KNOW what time to go from now on. With fall encroaching, and after three years of roughly the same short cropped, shaved sides, look I have, it's time for a change. I have two styles, almost similar to each other, so from here out, it's time to grow the hair out!!!!
Love the messy look on top, but the shorter sides on this one.
but I'm loving the longer look and the way higher rumbustious look of this one. I may even
let the stubble grow to match the look.
My stylist has said he believes both will suit my facial frame. So not much was cut this time in anticipation. Since my hair cut was much less, I even treated myself to a manicure, which a usually reserve for the spa day I take once a season, but what the hell. And the team that makes all this happen.....
Is everyone else getting as excited as I too watch the next installment of American Horror Story!?!!? I am chumping at the bit for the season to start. Set in 1952, it will center on a "troupe of curiosities" that arrives in Juniper Florida at the same time a dark entity arrives, threatening the lives of town folk and freaks alike. I remember seeing years ago a thriller titled Freaks, that scared the living hell out of me, I've been afraid of midgets ever since, so if it's like that, this just may be the scariest season yet. But I'm already loving some of the fashion.....
Kathy Bates as the bearded lady and Jessica Lange as Elsa Mars. I hear Jessica Lange will be a Marlene Dietrich like person with a German accent, and owner of the freak show.
I also can not wait to see how they use the great talents of Francis Conroy. I may need to hold onto my not so haunted teddy bear while watching this side show....or better still, a nice big strong man!!!
A while back this summer on one of my vacations, I came across this story that melted me like butter.
Bonedigger is a five-year-old, 500-pound male lion. Milo is a seven-year-old, 11-pound Dachshund.
After dinner, Milo licks the food from Bonedigger's teeth. His friends Bullet and Angel help, too. Bullet and Angel are also teeny-tiny Dachshunds. Bonedigger is still a 500-pound lion!!!!!
Some relationships between animals of different species are "unlikely" but happens. But a lion making lifelong friends with three wiggly Dachshunds? According to their care taker, Milo and Bonedigger have been "inseparable for the past five years at the the Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma. Joe Schreibvogel, an animal expert who regularly posts videos from the park at YouTube's JoeExoticTV, first introduced his four Dachshund puppies to Bonedigger when he was just a 4-week-old cub. Bonedigger is mildly disabled, thanks to a metabolic bone disease. Schreibvogel figures this explains the bond the group has developed. “The dogs thought it was just a big puppy and have loved each other since”.
The dogs and Bonedigger also share big, hearty meals of raw meat. They spend their days with Bonedigger in his yard, and because he's a 500-pound lion, what Bonedigger wants, Bonedigger gets.
“You do not ever try to take his dogs out of the yard,” Schreibvogel said. “It makes him very mad. They sleep on top of him.” Milo, for one, may think there's more to him than 11 pounds of wiener dog. The article goes on to say that Milo does his best to copy Bonedigger when the lion tries puffing to communicate with other lions in the park. What's puffing? That's the growl lions use to speak to other prides, which can be heard more than a mile away. This just blows my mind. Imagine: In Oklahoma, a Dachshund named Milo is talking to lions in a zoo in their own language. I have had two dachshunds, and my current pup Buster is half dachshund. They are the sweetest dogs, want to please, and they will also do things just to make you laugh. Course, I also think animals know the meaning of peace, harmony and getting along more than us humans.
I wouldn't be surprised if the lights are burning late at Disney after reading this.
