Finally, 100 Things About Me

I know I'm kind of late to this party, but what the heck:

  1. Every time I see a bottle of calamine lotion, the song "Poison Ivy" gets stuck in my mind.
  2. Every time I fly, during takeoff the song "Keep Their Heads Ringin'" gets stuck in my mind. (In the video, they steal a plane.)
  3. I love the show Everybody Loves Raymond.
  4. I am the biggest misocapnist you know. I guarantee it.
  5. Sometimes, when my feet feel really good and I feel good all over (my feet have to feel good in order for this to happen), I think that if other people could experience how good it feels to be me, they'd never want to be themselves again.
  6. I drive a 1998 Honda Civic with the following stickers: Keep Abortion Legal, a Lucinda Williams World Without Tears sticker, and a Kasey Chambers The Captain sticker.
  7. I lived with my parents until I was 24 years old.
  8. The biggest regret of my life is caving in to family pressure and going to college in my hometown rather than going away.

Why, UPN? Why.

AbFab Trivia Challenge

Take the quiz! I got a perfect score.

Gay Characters on TV

Now I'm on a roll, Elle!! For context: Elle linked to a list of gay characters on TV, saying it is far from complete. Ain't that the truth! I mentioned more in one comment to her blog, and now I'm thinking of more still: Mariel Hemingway's character and Roseanne's boss Leon on Roseanne, Waylon Smithers on The Simpsons, Blanche's brother Clayton who came out to Blanche and Dorothy's friend who had a crush on Rose on The Golden Girls, Stanford Blatch on Sex and the City, hmmm, let me go to Jump the Shark for more jogging of the memory...okay:

Billy, the gay teenager, in One Life to Live

WILLOW AND TARA (and Kennedy) in Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Ricky Vasquez in My So-Called Life

Okay, that's all I can think of for now. On an unrelated note, I saw Freddy vs. Jason last night. How campy and nostalgic. Makes me want to rent all the Nightmare on Elm St. movies again.

Lesson for the day: Don't ever do a Google search for "golden girls" + lesbian if you're looking for information on THE TV SHOW. Yikes!!!!

Blogging at the University of Minnesota

I received a link to this white paper today. I'm so happy that blogging is being taken seriously at the University of Minnesota. Shane Nackerud is trying to get an initiative going that would have weblog hosting on the University of Minnesota's server, looking to Harvard's model. I hope it works out.

And, on a totally unrelated note, Adrianne, the tomboy, won America's Next Top Model. Yes, you may throw rotten eggs at me now for watching trash TV. I do it to unwind! :-P
