Siouxsie and The Banshees were in really heavy rotation on my stereo during my adolescence. I loved them, and their affiliates as well.
Friend: “Omigod, did you know Robert Smith was in Siouxsie and the Banshees before the Cure?”
Me: “Really? He is sooo awesome, I love his lipstick. I want to marry him. I am, like, totally depressed that he doesn’t know who I am!”

Kiss Them For Me was one of the SATB songs that I loved in the 90’s. Siouxsie looked so beautiful in this video, so different from her heavily made up gothy days. The title is borrowed from a Jayne Mansfield movie, for the song is a tribute to Mansfield herself. Mansfield lived in a pink mansion with a pink heart shaped pool and a pink champagne fountain. Sadly, she would die early one morning in a tragic car accident on the way to New Orleans for a TV appearance.

I'm a 37 year old living in the East Bay near San Pablo Bay. I have worked as a Gallery Assistant at a small community college and am a medical assistant who has trained as a phlebotomist. I need to find time in my busy schedule as the mother of a very active toddler to study and get my phlebotomist's license. Interests include cheese, exotic beverages (not the alcoholic kind), ethnic food, improving my culinary skills, bacon, reading, music of all genres and combining all of the above together with friends! Last but not least, I love being the mother of a beautiful, sweet darling little girl. How lucky am I?
