It's not unusual to be loved by anyone

OK, I just finished watching Wedding Wars on A&E. I've dried my eyes and now I'd like to discuss it. First and foremost, in what universe are Eric Dane and John Stamos brothers?No, really, cuz don't think I won't pack my shit up and move there right now. Although it deals with a hot-button issue of the day in the US, gay marriage, this movie is mostly a light-hearted confection, full of humor and riddled with cliche'. It's a meringue with a message, people. Gay wedding planners, florists and public defenders? Dykes on bikes? I know. Awesome. I tuned in for the eye candy (can anyone really get too much Stamos?),and stayed for a sweet movie with a few very touching moments, and surprisingly, no pat resolution. P.S.? The public defender boyfriend is played by Firefly's lovely Dr. Simon Tam, Sean Maher. It repeats on A&E on Saturday night. Check your local listings. Thank me after.

ADDED: Blogging dry spell? Prepare to be irrigated. Or...quenched? Anyway, tomorrow: my new favorite underpants! Also, if time permits, my back rash. Stay tuned!

Bacne?

I met The Stamos once. I ran 3 stores in the Sydney International Airport and he came through as a customer. Unlike some other 'stars' *cough*Elle McPherson*cough* he was as nice as pie. Stopped and had his photo taken with the staff, signed autographs. Cute. Oh, and hot.

PS, loves me some Simon Tam. Tightly wound is hot.

Yes, that sound you heard was me squealing from the Northern Hemisphere. Met him? ::swoons::

No, no, not the dreaded bacne. Not to brag, but my back is usually pristine, that's why this is so disturbing. It's hives of unknown origin. These come on the heels of a corneal ulcer two weeks ago. I think my body is sending me a message. Something about inauthenticity, I'm now guessing, but I haven't been getting it, so now my body has resorted to spelling it out on my back in raised, erythematous letters.

The Other Andrew said...

Yeah. Squeal, baby. Squeal.

Erythematous? Show. Off. :P

Michael said...

Thinking about the hives too much and now my asshole is itchy.

Or is that from thinking about Stamos?

Did I ever tell you that I marched with the Dykes on Bikes in the San Francisco Pride parade one year? It was fun. Lots of topless women in leather pants + motorcycles + beer - judgmental asshats = good times had by all.

Sorry to hear you've been under the weather. When are you supposed to traipse north for skiing?

The Other Andrew said...

You and Michael Guy share an ailment perhaps? (see here) Twins, joined at the asshole?

Michael Guy said...

MICHAEL: You realize you had me at 'favorite underpants' and 'back rash?'

ANDREW: "Twins, joined at the asshole?" You have just been selected as Best Man at any future nuptial...legal or not. That is the best original line I've read today!

Thanks MG! :)

"I can plan your wedding but I can't have one of my own???" Fabulous line. Reminded me of the line in 'Dogma' where Rufus (the black apostle played by Chris Rock) says "A black man can steal your stereo but he can't be your savior." Trump cards, both.

I would love to see this movie. John Stamos is a biscuit! Hopefully they're still re-running it by the time I get back to the States for the festivities.

Damn, I forgot to tape that. I'll have to look for the re-run. I love Stamos. I think my love for him really started when I saw him on Broadway in Cabaret, from the 3rd row. Mmm.

The Other Andrew said...

WAAAAH! I want to see this movie now.
