Gotta blame it on something

GAYSTED: (adj) when heterosexual people get so wasted, they slip into seemingly gay acts.
The loose definition: "It is when you are soooo drunk (wasted) and dudes start dancing with you and you just sort of go along with it and then they start putting their arms around you and you just kind of keep rolling with it because you're drunk and you sort of think the dude is being your dancefloor bro, but then when you sober up you realize that the situash is sort of weird. When this happens, you tell your friends, 'dude, i got so gaysted last night.'" (via)
That made me smile. Speaking of smiling, Sarah Silverman was just on The View and she cracked my ass up. She is funny as hell and her new show, The Sarah Silverman Program, starts tonight on Comedy Central. You knew that her boyfriend is Jimmy Kimmel, right? At first that didn't make sense to me, but then I was like, 'Oh yeah, couples are always the funny one and the other one.'


Lastly, big ups to Freakgirl for giving me a proper introduction to Mika. I can't remember the last time I've been so instantly and completely in love! We're talking DARK GAY LOVE. No lie, because of him I just popped my MySpace cherry, guys, but it was totally worth it. Don't make me go back there though, OK?

Interesting term gaysted. To get gaysted on a regular basis would have to imply some kinda sexual repression i would suppose.

Michael said...

That's why I used "gotta blame it on something", Q. I've known that guy. Come to think of it, I've been that guy.

quiet 60s girl said...

Yeah, as Bodhi says it only takes a six-pack (of beer)... hehe

But anyhoo Michael sweetie i have just decided gaysted can also mean me "gay" and "wasted" ie. exhausted at 7:00am trying to get these kids to go to school and make lunches and sign forms and search for a lost scientific calculator while yelling out the back door for my funny little maltese terrier to get his ass out of the rain and get in the house for goodness sake and i am still in my pyjamas but would rather be in bed listening to Dancing Queen ;)

P.S. -15 degrees i forgot to ask you if your toothpaste is frozen? you gave me flash backs to living in London and New York

quiet 60s girl said...

BTW i don't mean to sound as though i am making light of becoming gaysted - i understand it and i am way glad yourself (and me included) are who are.

Back to my drama, picking up a plate of half eaten peanut butter on toast (that my breatharian of a youngest son won't eat) and taking it to the bin only to have it slip off the plate and fall to the floor face down!!! its gonna be one of those days.

I haven't heard of Mika before, but I'm a Late Adopter. He kind of has that look like he's the cutest boy on the kibbutz, you know?

I'm digging curly hair these days (mmmm, the early days of Patrick on SeanCody.com specifically). There is a guy that lives in my neighbourhood who has curly black hair and a close cropped beard, and I'm considering doing a bit of low energy stalking of him.

quiet 60s girl said...

TOA what is "low energy stalking"? I was under the impression you just stalked or you didn't lol. Is it something like semi introducing yourself while holding a cute puppy and pretending its yours to make conversation ;) i will lend you my Sunny.

Michael said...

Q, no worries, I think GAYSTED is designed to make light of. I think it's more fun to think of the str8 guy waking up the next morning thinking 'oops', but I know a guy (besides me) who used it as an excuse. And toothpaste? Is that what the kids are calling it these days? No, it hasn't frozen. ;-)

Andrew, I agree with Q, "low energy stalking" is hilarious. And a great idea! Just put a few feelers out to see if he justifies all the energy expenditure of a full-on stalk. Genius.

As for MIKA, he is indeed the hot young thang that has all the water cooler gays chattering. Oh, and freakgirl, but that goes without saying, I suppose. His CD is just one unapologetic and delicious piece of bubblegum pop after another. Sunny as fuck. I'll just say it. I'm twitterpated.

The Other Andrew said...

Low Energy Stalking is where you can't actually be bothered to do all the leg work, (the following around, the researching their favourite colour/food/pain threshold etc) but every time you see them you kind of stare and obssess. It's like stalking with an element of spontaneity thrown in, they come to you.

Michael said...

It's like if Frankenstein used parts of Jake Shears, Elton John, George Michael and Freddie Mercury, then MIKA would be the monster. And it's only a matter of time before he's pursued through the streets by all the village flamers.

Michael said...

So something more than an elevator crush, but less than a full metal stalk then?

Michael said...

Save twitterpated, I'd use:

I never dreamed a mere physical experience could be so stimulating! ::mops brow::

quiet 60s girl said...

TOA they "come" to you sounds like it involves much magical power. Hmmm.

Michael!! Tell me people don't nickname their privates as toothpaste for heavens sake. But i am glad your toothpaste is fine naturally. So if it does freeze ya better come downunder for that visit :P

The Other Andrew said...

So something more than an elevator crush, but less than a full metal stalk then?

Ja. More like a morning commute crush; you see them more frequently and for longer.

Michael said...

I'm sure the Cubans would appreciate the tropical clime. Especially Esteban, seeing as he hangs a little further out into the chill breezes up here. Course, as cold as it's been, both he and Manuel (you can call him Manny) have set up permanent camp as far North as physically possible.

The Other Andrew said...

I did a involuntary retract the moment I heard -15C, so I empathise with Manny & Esteban.

The Other Andrew said...

Oh dude, Duane is also spreading the Mika love right now.

savante said...

gaysted! I love that word!

Michael said...

Andrew, yeah, I know (see his comments)! MIKA is positively VIRAL today.

Savante, cute, no?

maddie said...

The Sarah Silverman Show! Damn, I KNEW I forgot to tape something tonight. Damn. It will probably repeat before next week, right? She just fascinates me, how innocent looking, yet the things that come out of her mouth...hilarious.

Yes, good song via Freakgirl. Mika's adorable as well. That is a great work-out playlist addition.

Michael, I have a myspace page. Does that ruin your image of me? :)

Michael said...

Dude, it's Comedy Central. It's probably repeating, like, right now. Actually, I'm watching it right now, off TiVo. A third of the way through it and I've LOL at least 5 times. She's a scream. And I love that you have a myspace page! ::shuffles off with his walker::

Stacy said...

I read your blog via Freakgirl. I saw this and thought of you! Wanna take a trip to Atlanta for Mika!!

Cheers!

Michael said...

Stacy,
Oh. My. Gah!

Seriously, I was just looking at his website to see if he had a tour set up, but he's out shilling for condos? Are you near Atlanta?

Stacy said...

Yes, I live in Atlanta...i thought it was weird about the condos too...
