Ellen & Portia marry

Woohoo, this is definitely the wedding of the year - as far as I'm concerned, anyway!

Congratulations Ellen & Portia... You are amazing together and set the most beautiful example for all the world to see.

A good day to be...

Honeymoon miracle

I completely forgot about the time we didn't actually plan to stay anywhere near a Chevy's, but still we ended by one by pure luck from the Goddess above.

We were driving from San Francisco to Los Angeles, and had made quite a few stops on the way there, so we decided to spend the night at a motel somewhere in between and just went through our coupon book, and found one to our satisfaction (we like it cheap, but GOOD, so we're by no means a "budget" kind of travelling couple, LOL).
Anyway, we pull up to this motel, and right next to it - and I mean RIGHT next to it - was a Chevy's! It was perfect and obviously, since we we're staying right next to it, we could go a bit Margarita crazy (or actually, we were all about Strawberry Daiquiries back then)... Ooooh, it was great!

Oh, AND this was our honeymoon (driving around in California 'cause we LOVE roadtrips), so it really was like a wedding present from above.

Happy thoughts,

I LOVE Chevy's!

The fresh, delicious Mexican food that I simply cannot get enough of - their Sizzling Fajitas are especially good at getting my juices flowing. If I could only go to one restaurant for the rest of my life, Chevy's would definitely be in my top five. Why not number one, you say?! Well, my conscience comes into play here, and in order to give myself even more delicious and healthy options (if we're talking one restaurant for the rest of my life), I'd have to go with Fresh Choice, which is one of my all time top favorites too.

But still... Chevy's is and always will be the place I HAVE to go to, if I was travelling to a city, where they have a franchise. Oh, and for the record, they DON'T have one where we live - both my Wifey and I adore Chevy's and actually, she's the one who introduced me to it (Thanks Hon!). The truth is, when we plan our vacations and decide on i.e. a road trip, then we'll actually plan our route based on where we can drop by a Chevy's.

I think we've gone to about 4 or 5 different Chevy's so far, and my favorite is probably the one in New York (right by Times Square and next to two movie theaters) and not only because the food has been perfect and the staff absolutely wonderful (and often gay, LOL), but also because when we're in New York, neither of us will have to drive home, cause we'll just walk home.
And you know what that means:

GayGirl & Wifey: "We'll both have a Margarita"
Cute waiter: "You want the regular or large one?"
GayGirl & Wifey (quick look at each other and then the waiter gets our answer in unision): "LARGE, please!"

And of course, we also have the Chevy's Cookbook, so now we go a little crazy sometimes and cook up all the delicious dishes (along with Margaritas, of course)... Still, there is nothing like the real deal.

Oh Chevy's... I miss you - and my mouth is watering just from thinking about you! ;o)

Is my dog gay?

Our little household consists of my wonderful Wifey, our cat and our dog (both female) and myself so there's a lot of oestrogen flowing around in this house. Especially these days... our dog is in heat!

However, she's not really all that interested in the male dogs. I mean, she likes all dogs and all people, but still, it would seem quite natural for her to be CRAZY for some male dog attention these days. So, I'm wondering if maybe my dog is gay? I mean, all the religious fanatics already love to think that we (the homosexuals) are contagious, which is why kids and other vulnerable individuals should be kept far away from us, right?

Then again, this might all change once she hits the peak of her heat. By that time she'll probably be a regular little trollop! ;o)

How about LindSam?

Okay, let's get to it... I can hardly keep avoiding it, and why should I? As a GayGirl I have been keeping an eye on the Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson stories, and something has been puzzling me lately; We have LiLo and SamRon, but they still haven't really gotten a combined name like Brangelina or TomKat, sooo...
How about LindSam?

I like it... I'm using it!

Also, regarding the question of "Are they even together?" Well, if they were two people of the opposite sex, then people wouldn't need the confirmation of anyone having to come out or describe the nature of their relationship. And really, isn't it a positive thing, that Lindsay treats this like any other realtionship? I mean, she wouldn't give a press conference or send out a public statement confirming that she was dating some guy or got a new friend (of any sex) either.

And in ANY case, whether they're together or not (which, for the record, I absolutely think they are), they do seem very happy and everything has just gotten better for both Lindsay Lohan's career and her overall behaviour, so I can't see that the relationship is bad in any way. I have high hopes for the future of LindSam and hope they stay on track in every way. :o)

Feelin' the love,
- GayGirl

P.S. If they are a couple that doesn't even mean Lindsay views herself as a lesbian, and therefore asking her to "come out" is a bit much. Maybe they just fell in love and are happy together, and they certainly aren't hiding how happy they are. Can't we just appreciate that? I can. And I do.

Take me to the Titty Bar!

"It gets a little crowded at the bar." was Brad Pitt's choice of words for pointing out Angelina Jolie's difficulty in trying to breastfeed the couple's newborn twins simultaneously (as quoted in PEOPLE magazine's article, which featured the first pictures of the twins and the entire Jolie-Pitt family).

That quote even made it to the Top 10 Best Celeb quotes of the week - and with good reason. When I read that quote all I could think was "Take me to the Titty Bar"... but at my age that's for completely different reasons.
Hmm, maybe I should just get the T-shirt! ;o)

There can be only one - Part II

P.S. Just to spare you the possibility of any further embarrassment, here's a few other people that need no last name for us (the initiated) to know who we're refering to: Barbra (Streisand), Judy (Garland), Liza (Minelli), Bette (Midler)... I know, I know, sometimes I do seem more like a gay MAN than GayGirl, but I'm just a good allround gay, I guess. ;o)
Hmm, and I feel like I'm forgetting quite a few... I'll get back to you on that.

There can be only one

No, I'm not talking about The Highlander (though I admit, I do like the movie and ADORE the song "Who wants to live forever" by Queen). I'm talking about Ellen, sooo...

If I say Ellen, you say "Which one?"... Then you truly are among the uninitiated! But not to fear, I will teach you. There is only one Ellen... Ellen DeGeneres!

She was willing to throw herself out there. She may not have been a HUGE star back then, but she did have her own hit show, came out in a MAJOR way and she paved the way for many. She also took the heat and backlash (perfectly illustrated in her show "The Beginning", which is a MUST-SEE and should be in your collection).

I remember being a wee GayGirl. Probably not really knowing I was gay, but definitely knowing I was different - and that I felt more for the women in the movies than the men. Or rather, I wanted to be the leading man. No, not actually really BE him, but in order to get the leading lady. ;o)
Anyway, I watched "Ellen" (the original sitcom), before she came out, and immediately felt a connection to this hysterically funny woman, who nearly made me pee in my pants from laughing... several times. I pretty much knew I was "a Gay", when Ellen did come out, but it still made a huge impact on me. This was also because it was around the time I had started searching for gay movies and books, and here she was just being gay EVERYWHERE, and suddenly I didn't have to look for it anymore. Also, it was around the time I had my first girlfriend, and so in every way, being gay had just become much more "real" somehow.

In any case, I ADORE Ellen... and like Elvis, Madonna og Cher, there is NO need for the last name (okay, only the first one actually uses a last name, but still). If I mean another Ellen, then I'll be sure to include that Ellen's last name, m'kay?!
Now... Go watch Ellen's talkshow - you may even catch a glimpse of the wonderful Portia de Rossi. ;o)

I never thought I'd say this...

Paris Hilton ROCKS!!!
If you haven't seen the new video, where Paris announces she's accepting "McCain's nomination of her", then you are surely missing out. This video is just SO tongue-in-cheek and simply perfect at making truly excellent points. Lordy, I suddenly have a new respect for Paris Hilton - and I've always accepted that she's a master of promoting herself, which is to be admired, but this takes her to a new level.

Wanna see what all the fuss is about, then just follow this link directly to the video:

You GO, girl!

Much respect,

We are family... The Jolie-Pitt twins

Finally, the first pictures of the Jolie-Pitt twins were released on Sunday, and they really do look adorable:

Welcome to the world (and the worldwide web), little Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon. :o)

He's the man!

I LOVE my newsletter, because unlike the regular news, there's often something good and uplifting among these news - of course, it's not like reading a fairytale, since there's plenty of hate crime, homophobia and right wing fanatics that love to speak their mind, but still.

Today my "That's what I've been saying all along"-moment came, when reading this teaser in the Advocate news update:

"An openly gay man equally successful at playing a prime-time pussy hound and securing major endorsement deals, Neil Patrick Harris is doing just what closeted actors and their minders have called impossible."

It is so strange how this has gone under the rader for so long, which is why I am loving this article featured on

Happy gay greeting,

Life is good

Today is a good day. The weather is amazing and I'm working from home, so I took our dog out for a walk and just enjoyed the weather. It's always so quiet outside in the middle of the day compared to the usual morning og afternoon traffic, when I go to the office. Actually, I don't work from home much, but we do have the option and on a day like this, it's just perfect. You can sit outside while working, take a break and walk the dog or enjoy a refreshing beverage (no, not alcohol... I'm working remember) outside. Oh, I should probably explain that I work with marketing and in particular online activities, which can be done from anywhere with a laptop and access to the Internet really, so you gotta love that. ;o)

Oops, got a bit sidetracked there. My point (and I do have one) was simply that I love the summer and the sunshine to the point where I can always take more. I don't need it to end or complain that it's too hot - just drink water and stay in the shade and you'll be fine. That's how I see it anyway.

Anyway, just wanted to share that... I am a summerchild for sure. Maybe it's because I was born in August and just thrive on sunshine and warmth - oh yeah, I'm a Leo and damn proud of it, but we'll get to that.

Sunny smiles,
