A Few Interesting Things...

--Best e-card site ever: Some Ecards. Found at Kat O+'s blog. Great possibilities.

--How do you feel about Nut Cream as the title of a gay werewolf romance? Fabulous? Delightfully Trashy? In poor taste?

--Speaking of the gay, if I hear or read the phrase "It's Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve," one more time, I may start throwing stuff. Yo, I know Adam and Steve. They've been together for 15 years, they have a well-appointed home in Chelsea, and they want to know why everyone keeps singling them out.[Okay, that's not true, but I wish it was, because that would be awesome.]

Seriously though, homophobic arguments might have a skosh more gravitas, if they didn't always trot out that old saw. Really, was it Adam and Eve? Was it? That one was tired by the time I was old enough to realize why Uncle Jimmy's "friend" got invited to go everywhere.

Okay, so that little rant was totally OT but I'm getting a cold, it's that time of the month, I have to bring the monsters to Chuck E. Cheese for a birthday party, and go to work tonight. I got no patience for fools today.

I don't remember what else I was going to mention. I really need a vacation.

Nut Cream? I'd probably point and laugh if I saw it in the store, but I don't think I'd buy it. Sort of squicky if you ask me. lol

Meh, I'm not touching the homo thing. Can't we all just get along.

I totally feel you about being stressed, tired and PMSy, though. Soooo totally feel you. Poor MM. :)

LOL@ Nut cream. I saw that at Samhain and started to laugh.

I hate the Adam & Eve not Adam & Steve thing, too.

I think people who disagree with gay/lesbian are as bad as people who disgree with 'mixing' races.

Nut Cream made me cringe and laugh at the same time. Sort of like The Billionaire's Secret Bukkake Baby. *g*

Seriously, though, it's a tad too crass for me, but... it did make me check out the blurb. *g* As marketing it will appeal to a very specific (limited) segment. They'll know (or assume) exactly what they're getting. The rest (of us) will stay away in drove. The author might have been better served by a different title.

Agreed on the old-- yawn-- chestnut of Adam & Steve etc.

I thought you were kidding about that title and now my eyebrows are stuck in my hairline.

I have never heard the Adam and Steve thing but I tend not to listen to people I think don't have a clue ;) And I like your story about who Adam and Steve are ;)

PMS - check!

Hi all!

Whenever I think of that title, I can't help giggling. But I agree, Jaye, it ain't exactly compelling me to read the book. A little bit tacky.

Chantal--(And I promise not to get political, just one more thing) It's funny that you mention "race mixing". One of the many things that disturbs me about the whole gay marriage debate going on in the US is that it seems like such a slippery slope. One may not like the gays, but if you're supporting a constitutional amendment denying an entire group of people a particular right, you better think about who it could be next. Interracial marriages? Interfaith marriages? We don't mix church and state for a reason. Opening that door seems dangerous to me.

CindyS--No one's ever told you about Adam and Steve? Well, in case you didn't know, it was Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, not Adam and Steve. Adam and Steve would have decorated the place much more nicely:)

Yup, still in the grip of PMS. Or MS. Or just plain grumpiness.

My mom is a Bible thumper, so we heard the Adam and Eve thing all too often.
We were also warned not to marry outside of our race because "the children will suffer."

My brother (who is named Steve btw) is gay. I'm bi but I have not been with a girl since early on in my marriage. I also married out of my race.

Sorry mom. lmao.

I HATE homophobes, or just about anyone that is racist or that discriminates. I say people should mind their own business!!
