"You have been a wonderful mother.  Which is why Zoe is so afraid you'll want to disown her."
"Disown her?  Don't be ridiculous.  She said she was a lesbian, not a Republican."

Status of the Lesbians

Yesterday two of my friends posted Facebook status updates that reflected how times have changed for us lesbians.  Even better, they made me laugh.

Bernie in New York reported that it was "date night with Cindy after filing married joint return.  She's the 'taxpayer' and I'm the 'spouse'!  Guess who's buying dinner?"

And Kate in Michigan wrote of an experience somewhat less likely to happen now. Years ago she was sitting in a church when the preacher sermonized, "God tells us to love everyone, including prostitutes, money lenders and homosexuals."  Kate's partner whispered, "Can you feel the love?"

"On the way home," Kate added, "I asked her if she'd like a loan."

This Week's Quote

My mother took me to a psychiatrist when I was fifteen because she thought I was a latent homosexual. There was nothing latent about it.

When Opportunity Clucks

It seems Chick-fil-A, the Atlanta-based fast-food chain, is expanding into my neck of the woods.  In a column about how we in liberal Seattle have a predilection for boycotting, today's Seattle Times noted that around here Chick-fil-A is best known for its donations to anti-gay groups, not a way to make friends with Seattleites.

One Times reader, though, found the silver lining in Chick-fil-A's move into our area:  "This is awesome news.  I've spent years not eating there from a distance and now I can not eat there locally."

This Week's Quote

LSD?  Nothing much happened, but I did get the distinct impression that some birds were trying to communicate with me.

This Week's Quote

I'm not involved in tennis but committed.  Do you know the difference between involvement and commitment?  Think of ham and eggs.  The chicken is involved.  The pig is committed.

Dancing All Together in the Altogether

I'm posting this for Valentine's Day.  I'm a day late.  Can't decide if these people are a dollar short.
