ADDED ON 3/29: Looks like Oprah agrees. It's quite a departure for her, but she selected it for her book club on 3/28.
Or possibly I just wanna fuck a dandy or a fop. Yeah, that's it.
Also, I'm still deciding whether Alpha Moms annoy me for their own sake, or because I secretly want to be them. But then I would have kids with names like Ryland and Marston. I'll get back to you.
ADDED: You can have your longer days, your robins returning, your daffodils blooming, because I finally experienced my favorite rite of spring today-- hot bitches on motorcycles. Tight t-shirt, buzzcut, mirror shades...unnnggghhh.

PS If you keep all those extra buttons and thread that come with stuff from Banana Republic, will you be my bf/gf? Because I know I should but I don't even pretend to any more and I need someone to do it for me.

It took me effin' forever, but at this late date, even if I could, I wouldn't change a thing. It may be sad to some of you that it took me so long, but it's the happiest and best thing that ever happened to me, no matter when. They'll never be a "cure", I know that like I know few things, and I also know what an immeasurable loss the world would suffer were it possible to have no more queer.
ADDED: CB says the YouTube link is dead, but you can still watch it at Comedy Central. Here is the video link. Scroll down to Diagnosis Mystery: Parts 1 & 2.

"In World War II, a British mathematician named Alan Turing led the effort to crack the Nazis' communication code. He mastered the complex German enciphering machine, helping to save the world, and his work laid the basis for modern computer science. Does it matter that Turing was gay? This week, Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, said that homosexuality is "immoral" and that the ban on open service should therefore not be changed. Would Pace call Turing "immoral"?Meanwhile, thanks to this misguided policy, our military has discharged thousands of highly trained personnel, including desperately needed Arabic translators.
Since 1993, I have had the rich satisfaction of knowing and working with many openly gay and lesbian Americans, and I have come to realize that "gay" is an artificial category when it comes to measuring a man or woman's on-the-job performance or commitment to shared goals. It says little about the person. Our differences and prejudices pale next to our historic challenge."
ADDED: By way of explanation, Regis had bypass surgery. Oh. I guess that doesn't really explain things. OK, Regis had bypass surgery, so I TiVoed the show because Anderson Cooper was guest hosting, and I'll be dipped, but Anderson wasn't even the hottest thing on. It was Gelman, then Anderson. No, actually it was Mark Wahlberg, Gelman, then Anderson. Shoot. Let me try one more time? Cool. It was Mark Wahlberg, the smell that Mark Consuelos leaves on Kelly, Gelman, then Anderson. That sounds like I'm knocking Anderson, when I'm totally not. Did you notice how he giggles like a schoolgirl at everything Kelly says? A-dorable.
P.S. Get better, Reege! But, you know, don't rush it. Co-hosting is a craft, and Cooper and Consuelos need some time to hone their instruments.

|The Part of You That No One Sees|
You are compassionate, caring, and soothing.
You like other people to depend on you...
In fact, you don't feel right unless you are helping someone out.
Underneath it all, you feel the burden of everyone's problems.
Without your guidance, you fear that many people's worlds would fall apart.
You like to feel in charge, even if it brings you a lot of stress.
Fast forward to the after-party, where games commenced. I'm just not a big party game guy, but I am a joiner (ask anyone!), so a rousing game of Catch Phrase ensued. I think the following vignette succinctly capsulizes the evening. It was the other team's turn and my sister-in-law was giving clues. "It's a city in England", she exclaimed, which was met with a guess of "Paris!" by one of my co-workers, and blank non-responsive stares from the other two. Not to be deterred, sister-in-law came back with "the Queen lives there!" which prompted a guess of "the Eiffel Tower!" You know it's true because it doesn't make a lick of sense, so why would I make that up? Finally, desperately, she offered "I see blank, I see France, I see someone's underpants". They got that one, she passed the device to me, and the buzzer went off.
These people really are lovely, but?

2. Grandpa's ashes
3. Your semen sample
Things you shouldn't let me carry! I tell ya, I've been Mrs. Butterfingers the last few days. I have the Eureka, the Dirt Devil, a Swiffer and a Tide Stain Stick all setting out in the corner because there's no use putting them away. In fact, as I type this my pants are in the spin cycle.
If you are suitably enabled, you might take advantage of the service right now, as for a short time they're offering $15 in free downloads to sweeten the pot.

PS Yes, I'm a (barely) 40something man who has never lived outside the Midwest and I read the New York Times. I know. Stereotypically gay much?

|You Belong in London|
A little old fashioned, and a little modern.
A little traditional, and a little bit punk rock.
A unique woman like you needs a city that offers everything.
No wonder you and London will get along so well.
Tell me something I don't already know, darling.
