Single Minded IDOL…

I’m very lucky in the fact that I get to blog right after the IDOL performances (Tuesday and Wednesday nights, thus far). The girls have been given Wednesdays as their performance nights, and some of them been inspiring me to seek the individuality we each have within us, and let it all hang out.

I’ll be in second heaven if she chooses White Rabbit as a future song. I know she’ll do it justice.

That, and anything by Heart, of course.

There is a sweetness and a vulnerability about her. I can tell she’s been wounded somehow.

Am I being to presumptive? Is she just shy, or an actress convincing in her role of a victim? Whatever. Bottom line: She has touched a chord, and that says a lot for a contestant in a television show that is too overproduced for most of its singers to stand out—and succeed.

Speaking of success:

– In this week’s Sex and the SMW, a woman who has just turned forty is anxious that she’s losing her edge. She’s also afraid she’s letting her boyfriend take advantage of her…

– Martin’s His Lips Unzipped compares men to their sexual equals: bonobos. (Seriously: don’t ask, just read.)

– This week’s article discusses office affairs. Having one isn’t the issue. However, discretion is everything

– And finally, this month’s BIG relationship issue concerns the BIG O…and why YOU may not be feeling it lately. Sex is a very important part of our lives. You deserve to get yours…
