Two orders of business today.

First, if you live in New York and you’re looking for something to do tonight, tomorrow night, or Saturday, let me highly recommend this show, produced by a friend of mine:

I saw it last night and it was the most enjoyable evening I’d spent in the theater in a long while.

And can that girl dance!

Second, I am so making myself these Rainbow Hotpants and teaching step class in them:

Except my abs are totally better than his.

[Edit: I emailed the author of the pattern asking about resizing, and it turns out that yes, that is a woman’s body, though the pattern described the hotpants as “totally gay” so I hope I can be forgiven for assuming that it was just a particularly bottomish guy. It’s not really fair to say that my abs are better than hers, as men’s and women’s bodies are very different when it comes to body fat percentages. Perhaps I’ll just post a picture of my bare midriff in those shorts when they’re done, and you can all weigh in.]

    Are we sure that’s a boy? If so, I sure hope his boyfriend is a top.

    If you pay close attention you’ll notice that’s a womans body. Soooo… If in fact your statement has any validity it should read – Your abs are better than HERS.

    It could be a young Asian boy.

    Well, I wouldn’t mind seeing a picture of Faustus’s abs, myself.

    We can all only pray that your package is bigger than her’s.

    You realize you’re going to have to alter the pattern to make room for your genitals. I suppose you could skip it, and that might be kind of hot, but I would so not go in public.

    The bulge is something to aim for, I’d imagine.

    It sort of reminded me of the rainbow Speedo that a girl at my job once made for me.

    This is what I knitted last night:

    I did mine in burgundy, because that’s what I had on hand, and I want to get this out to my aunt, who just underwent a hysterectomy.
    The knitting went rather quickly, once I got past the 2 stitches each on double-pointed needles, which caused a lot of swearing.

    Ways to please your readers:
    1) don’t alter the pattern.
    2) upload pic of nice abs.
    3) upload pic of teaching step class in unaltered shorts.

    These would flash across the web and your following would grow immensely. Then you can shamlessly market your new books to us all and become richer than your wildest homo dreams. Everyone wins. 🙂

    For a second there I thought that they zipped up at the side. Then I noticed the little drawstring and realised that a zip on a pair of otherwise extremely practical, stretchy, knitted hotpants would be just silly.

    And yet at the same time kind of appealing…

    Cute uterus, Monica – what a clever thing to send your aunt! I’ve seen other versions occasionally at Wiscon, the feminist science fiction convention (all my cleverest stuff comes from there).

    Faustus, the shorts are hot!

    I’m sure that young woman is a lovely person and all. However, she is clearly not a Step Aerobics Instructor. Just sayin’.

    I’d love to see a picture of you in these hotpants. Just make sure we can see as much of your torso as possible.
