arma virumque cano (et alia)
This weekend, at the Erotic Arts Festival, after the burlesque troupe had finished it's big hour-long show and was exhaustedly digging into the dinner provided by the venue, they toasted Bea Arthur's memory with plates of cheesecake. It was without a doubt the gayest thing I've ever seen... And this was at an event where men were tying men up and spanking them. ;) Requiescat in pace, Bea. It's been a bad year for sexy old ladies.
Who are the other "sexy old ladies?" I imagine I'll do one of those slapping the forehead things when you tell me.
I'm cheating a bit with the "this year" thing, but Eartha Kitt and Majel Barrett died in late December. There was one more in the same week or so that really hit my circle of friends hard, but I can't remember her name off the top of my head.
