15 random things (about me)

1. I absolutely adore the smell (and taste) and nectarines

2. When eating a nectarine while Wifey is around, I love to look at her, smirk and quote the line "I could eat a peach for hours" (from 'Face/Off')

3. You know when you wake up from a wonderful dream and you try going back to sleep, because you're trying to get back to that dream? That's how I feel about Wifey. Whenever we're apart - even if we're just at work - it feels like I'm always trying to get back to her (I know *gag* super corny, but true)

4. I rarely sleep naked... It just makes me feel umm naked, in every way (and cold even during a heat wave)

5. Wifey always sleeps naked (she's always very warm). And I love it!

6. I was once a vegetarian for a year and a half. The main reason I'm not a vegetarian now is that all the people I love are extremely carnivorous, and it feels like I would burden them, so I'm a part time pescetarian now (try to get away with just eating fish, but I also still eat meat).

7. I have one tattoo now, but will have two by the end of today (Friday the 13th... I know, what was I thinking?! And I'm pretty superstitious). Both placed from the hip and up [out of plain sight].

8. My favorite perfumes are Tommy Girl (Tommy Hilfiger) for myself and Happy (Clinique) for Wifey.

9. I used to have OCD pretty badly, but now I just have very few quirky "habits" left.

10. I like lemons... A LOT. I can eat and enjoy sour foods more than anyone else I know.

11. I also love spicy, sweet and savoury things. Basically I love food and I don't mind strong/bold flavors!

12. I have no doubt that I could kill a person, if they physically (seriously) harmed someone I love - or if the victim was a child, an animal or anyone else who couldn't fight back.

13. I couldn't hurt an animal unless another life depended on it.

14. More than anything, I despise injustice, unfairness, intolerance and lies. I believe these things are the root of all evil - from broken hearts and dreams to world wars.

15. I believe in love and equality - we are all created equal and have the same right to life, love, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

What's in a name?

"GayGirll2000" How did I come up with that name?

Well, I never really use the word "lesbian". I mean, I do use it every now and then, but I define myself as "gay" and not "lesbian". I have no problem with the L word, but many years back - more than a decade, which is just scary to think about, LOL - when I came out, I really wasn't very happy with the word and it seemed like only certain homosexual women (angry, older, more butch and man hating) called themselves "Lesbians", but I was happy, young - still am, darn it - not butch, but not really super femine either, and I know many men that I think are just wonderful (gay and straight), so I went with the word that happy Ellen DeGeneres chose, when she proudly proclaimed "Yep, I'm gay!".

Me too!
Anyway, when you need to choose your name online, it seems other people have always had the same thought as you, so of course you need to find a new name, and so I thought to myself... What's gay? What's cool? Funny? Sounds good? What works that I can remember and identify with? And then it hit me...

Oh yeah, baby... it's like a new and improved version - or a cool robot, and I'm a bit geeky like that. GayGirl2000... Thank you, Jack!

P.S. I've lost a good 5 pounds so far, and things are going really good - except I've just been wined and dined for three days in a row. ;o) My parents love to take out me and my Wifey... We really are just foodies, and it is our summer vacation these days.
Besides, Wifey's got the greatest metabolism and can eat like a construction worker, while maintaining the look of a swimsuit model (I know, the world is unfair, but at least she's mine, so I'm  not complaining... much), so my parents really enjoy taking us out for dinner. People always love guests with a good appetite. Anyway, I'm staying on board with the Jillian Michaels workouts and am back on track on the food/calorie intake now as well.
