Uh-oh.  I thought it was just a one-time thing, but it’s starting to become a bad habit.  Could this mean that I am now a fan of Zac Efron aka “Zef” aka “Zac what-the-EF-is-wRONg-with you”?!  More like, what-the-F-is-wrong-with-ME!  I have now dedicated two blog posts this gay-looking teen heartthrob.  I have seen High School Musical 3.  In the theater.  These seem like things a thirteen year-old straight girl (or Alex, or perhaps Shannon if she had a blog) would do.  Is this what I’ve become?

Yeesh.  This is unacceptable!  But I just can’t help it.  I tuned in to SNL on Saturday night, and who just happened to be hosting?  It was Zachary, of course.  (I didn’t know about it beforehand, I swear!)  When the show was over, I felt strangely compelled to write a blog post about it.  And so, with a farewell nod to my credibility–as a lesbian, and as a 24 year-old person–here it is:

I’ve lost all hope for myself.



How the Dyke Stole Hxmas, Part III: Yes, Val-ginia, there is a Santa Claus

(You thought that said “vagina”, didn’t you!  Clearly you’ve been reading this blog too much.)  OK FINE people, I’ll admit it: thanks to your outpouring of xmas-y guest posts, comments, and gchats, it has recently come to my attention that I like more things about xmas than I originally thought I did.

It’s like that time Charlie Brown finally learned what xmas is all about. (Except I’m probably more of a Peppermint Patty.)  Anyway, let’s see what you guys came up with!

GRINCH’D!

If my festive xmas post left you feeling grumpier than a Walmart employee on December 26, you should enjoy this rebuttal from Shannon (See Fig. 1).

(Fig. 1) I wouldn't mind bumping into her under the mistletoe...

Hold on to your (Santa) hats.



How the Dyke Stole Hxmas!

It has recently come to my attention (read: the office xmas tree just got assembled) that it is now officially that time of year known as “xmastime” (see Fig. 1 and Fig. 2).

Get the picture?

A loooot more grinchiness.

Um… I saw High School Musical 3: Senior Year.  On opening night.  

Yeeeah.  Believe me, I did not want to blog about this, because then I would have to admit that I saw High School Musical 3 on opening night.  But lucky for you people, my sense of shame about what happened is nowhere near as strong as my urge to blog (or talk, text, gchat, etc.) about gayface!

Zef & GayChace.

Zef & GayChace.

The most un-lesbian post I’ve ever written.



What’s with today, today?

Brendan: you need to blog today damnit
p.s. drunken posts you regret later are acceptable and COMPLETELY appropriate

Heather: i’m riding my bike in the homecoming parade today

Shannon: cant you just get drunk at midnight
me: that’s what i did last night, and now i’m filled with regret.
Shannon: yeah you need to balance that out with a wholesome night of disney magic

Kayla: i’m assuming thingy isn’t a real word
me: it’s a real word!
Kayla: thingy is?
so thingie is spelled wrong?

Colin: can I have the link to your blog?
I don’t want to have google searches on my computer for “Regret lesbian blog”

Alexandra: are you interested in girls?
