Me, Pennsic, Dad, stress n' stuff

Boy, am I blond! But the roots will grow in by the time I get to Pennsic, and that'll look cool. :D

Speaking of, I bought my plane ticket today. $237 - not too bad, but I was hoping for an even $200. Still, as I told Q last night, no more dinners out this month. Thank goodness I'm paid up on rent and I won't be making any large payments on my laptop next month - I'll be able to actually enjoy Pennsic, and, with any luck, still might have enough left over to go to Worldcon in Toronto over Labor Day (but I'm not holding my breath). I hate being poor. :(

And to top it all off I'm busy as a bee. Of course it's Comic-con this weekend, and I'm trying to get a banner made for us. Unfortunately, Adam's mother is ill again, so he had to head back north, but he hopes to be able to help me out remotely. Then next weekend is Pride, and I'm trying to help coordinate the LYC booth, the Gaylaxicon booth, and the Gaylaxicon parade group. I'm SO GLAD I have Bill helping me with the G'con booth and Yudi and Peter helping with the LYC booth - I couldn't do it without them. (I guess I am getting to be a pretty good manager - I have people to do these things for me, and they actually do them!)

We definitely need more bodies to fill the costumes for the parade, so to that end I posted a bunch of blurbs on various e-mail lists and Yahoo Groups I'm a part of to recruit new folks, including one for Calafia. The only response I got was from some asshat who not only wants the SCA to "distance itself" from those sci-fi freaks so people will consider us a more "reputable historical reenactment organization," but also that I should keep my hobbies and my "politics" separate. I guess that means, by extension, that he doesn't approve of Clan Blue Feather (and he did say something about "disagreeing with me," which I took to mean "disagreeing with homosexuality"), nor does he appreciate that Gaylaxicon has invited the SCA to participate not only because of fan crossover, but because we cover "fantasy" lit, which many SCAdians are interested in. Criminy. {insert a rolling eyes smilie here}

Gay Wedding Etiquette & Invitation

OK, a friend that sends me lame jokes all the time just sent me this, and I think it's a hoot. It's by Bob Smith of Funny Gay Males, which I believe he wrote for Out magazine. Enjoy!


Now that Canadian Gay Marriages have been legalized, here are the new rules:

1) On the day of a gay wedding, it's bad luck for the two grooms to see each other at the gym.
2) Superstition suggests that, for good luck, the couple should have: Something bold, something flirty, something trashy, something dirty.
3) It's customary, at gay and lesbian nuptials, for the parents to have an open bar during the entire ceremony.
4) Gay wedding tradition dictates that both grooms refrain from eating any of the wedding cake because it's all carbs and sugar.
5) It's considered bad luck for either of the grooms to have dated the priest.
6) During the first dance, it's considered unlucky to use glow sticks, flags, whistles or hand held lasers.
7) For good luck at the union of a drag queen, the bouquet is always throw in the face of a hated rival.
8) The reception hall must have a disco ball and at least one go-go dancer.
9) The wedding singer is not allowed to play/sing Let's Hear It For the Boy, It's Raining Men or I Will Survive.
10) The father of the Bottom has to pay for everything!


Of course, I have to follow that up with Bob Smith's gay wedding invitation (paraphrased, as I'm recalling from memory his stand-up routine):


Dr. & Mrs. Ronald Goldstein
reluctantly invite you to the wedding of their son,
Joshua Albert,
to Robert Woods,
son of the stunned Mr. & Mrs. Woods
The ceremony will take place
on Thursday, October 5
at three o'clock in the afternoon
followed by an awkward reception at Donatello's.
At the parents' request, there will be an open bar during the ceremony.
