My Life and the AMAs

First, I would like to start off talking about the AMAs. Adam Lambert kissed his keyboard player for about three seconds and now some people are calling it gay porn! In my opinion, that's absolutely ridiculous. I saw the video. Yes, I'm pretty sure there was some tongue action involved. But the thing is, everyone remained fully clothed. I'm no expert here since I don't watch much porn, but my husband does. Anyway, from what I've seen, porn involves naked people performing sexual acts on each other that are much more explicit than a three-second kiss! I even showed the video to my husband. Before I showed him the video, I said "Honey, watch this and tell me if you would consider this to be gay porn." He watched it and said "What part is supposed to be porn?" so I said "The part where Adam Lambert kissed his keyboard player." My husband said "If that's porn, it's the worst porn ever!"

Okay, now that I got that out of my system, I'm moving on to another subject; me. I have to have two blood tests today. Actually, I already had one. The first one was at 8:00am. I have to have the second one between 4:00 and 4:30pm. They are testing some of my enzymes and want to see how they change over the course of the day. Anyway, I hate blood tests because my veins aren't all that good and they never get my blood on the first try. This morning was no exception. I was poked three times and the phlebotomist wiggled the needle around in the vein each time before they got anything.

But the thing was, while I was in the waiting room at the blood lab, there was a poster from the Red Cross. So I got to thinking that I should donate blood. I've donated blood a couple of times in the past, but haven't done so for a couple of years. The reason that I stopped donating was that I got pissed off at the Red Cross because they refuse to accept blood from gay people. I don't buy the whole thing about the increased possibility of HIV positive blood being the reason since they test all the blood for HIV and other assorted diseases routinely before administering to anyone. I think the Red Cross is just homophobic. But the thing is that because of Swine Flu, the nation's supply of blood is really low. So now I'm thinking I should donate. But if I donate, that would mean that I'm ending my personal boycott of anything related to the Red Cross. So now my real conundrum is should I stand up for gay rights by boycotting the Red Cross or should I support medical need by donating my blood?

Why isn't it Monday yet??? This post is pretty much about The Big Bang Theory

Okay, in case you haven't figured it out by now, I watch quite a bit of TV. My current favorite shows are How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Ugly Betty, and Project Runway. My favorite night of the week for TV viewing is Monday night because both How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory are on.

Now, something you should know about me is that I have a very obsessive personality. Right now, two of my major obsessions are How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory. Part of the How I Met Your Mother obsession was the whole Barney/Robin thing, but now that Barney and Robin have broken up... well, I still watch and DVR the show every single week like the obsessive fangirl that I am, but some of the obsession has gone away.

Onto The Big Bang Theory. I had, and I'll get to why I'm using the past tense in a minute, a couple of theories about Sheldon and sex. My first theory, and the theory that has been expressed multiple times on the show itself, is that Sheldon is asexual. My backup theory, however, is that Sheldon is gay and was just really, really, really deep in the closet, well, because he's a Mama's boy and his mother is a fundamentalist christian. However, my feeling has always been that if it's eventually revealed that Sheldon does, in fact, have anything resembling a sex drive and it turns out he's straight, he should hook up with Penny, the neighbor. This is mostly because, well, he's Sheldon. Just watch the show if you want to know what I mean.

Anyway, CBS posted a clip from the upcoming episode of The Big Bang Theory on both their website and YouTube. Here it is on YouTube. My new theory about Sheldon is that he's just a really, really late bloomer. I'm a little disappointed that they decided to make him straight rather than gay, but hey, if he has to be straight, well, at least he's fooling around with Penny lol.

I am annoyed at two people; my husband and my mother-in-law. I'll start with why I'm annoyed with my husband. Now, we've been together for quite awhile. Anyway, over all the years we've been together, I've been telling him about the gag reflex and that is why it is not a good idea for him to grab my head during a blow job. Today I found out he never believed me. I found this out by walking in on him watching some random chick on YouTube giving out sex tips and when I walked in she was talking about the gag reflex. So I said "Honey, why are you watching this? You already know about the gag reflex, I've told you about a zillion times."

So my husband said "Yeah, but I thought you were just being a b****, now I know you were telling the truth."

Well that lead to an argument with me asking why I'd lie about that. Apparently he saw several porn stars take the whole penis in their mouths. Now I don't care if he watches pornos, but why does he expect me to act like a porn star?

This is very similar to a discussion we had last night about people not being able to disassociate fiction from reality. For example, take Jim Parsons and his character, Sheldon, on The Big Bang Theory. I was reading some internet post asking if Jim Parsons ever got laid. So I voiced the opinion to my husband that people are idiots and that just because a guy plays an asexual on TV does not mean he's asexual in real life. Just like because someone plays a serial killer on, say, NYPD Blue does not mean that they are actually a serial killer.

Anyway, on to why I'm annoyed with my mother-in-law. Ironically enough, this also involves YouTube. See, I had just finished watching this video of Donna Sachet making history by being the first drag queen to ever sing The Star Spangled Banner at a MLB baseball game. Anyway, so my mother-in-law called and asked me what I was doing. Now, you should note that my mother-in-law is a very religious catholic who doesn't even believe in evolution, but I wasn't thinking when I told her that I was watching a video of a drag queen sing the national anthem at a major league baseball game. My mother-in-law said that was disgusting. I asked her why, since as far as I know, Donna Sachet is an American drag queen. I mean, if Donna Sachet is not an American, I can see the problem with her singing the American national anthem, but like I said, I assume she's American. That question was a big mistake. All I got for it was a ten-minute lecture on how homosexuality is wrong and how drag queens are the worst kinds of homosexuality.

I did not bother to point out to her that for starters, there are some heterosexual drag queens, and though they mostly do drag in their own homes. Nor did I point out that we are all God's children and who is she to judge? I also did not voice my opinion that if she doesn't like homosexuals, she probably shouldn't be living in the bluest state in the nation. Although I was thinking all that and much more. Instead I held my tongue and then put my husband on so that he could deal with her. After all, you have to pick your battles, and I chose not to argue with this woman since I learned my lesson when I tried to teach her about evolution.

I Made a Background

Okay, this really proves that I have too much time on my hands, lol. I found the sexiest photos I could find of my two favorite actors, Neil Patrick Harris and Jim Parsons. Ironically enough, both photos are in black and white. The picture of Neil Patrick Harris is from Rolling Stone and the picture of Jim Parsons is from Maxim. Anyway, I took both pictures, and, after playing with them in The Gimp for awhile, I managed to make a background of them side-by-side. Anyway, I thought that I would share the background. Image size is 1280 x 800 pixels. Now I just have to figure out how to post it.

Okay, I think I have it! I'm going to post a link to it in my photo sharing site. Here it is!

Neil Patrick Harris on Conan O'Brien

I wasn't feeling particularly sleepy last night, so I stayed up to watch Conan O'Brien. This is very unusual behavior for me since I'm pretty much the definition of "morning person." Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised when Conan announced that one of his guests would be Neil Patrick Harris. I was excited and also a little nervous, because I caught a video clip of last time Neil Patrick Harris was on the Conan. He told some story about a vacation in Hawaii with his boyfriend. I don't remember it verbatim, but I think it went something like this. They went to a restaurant about 30 minutes from their hotel. On the way back, Neil realized that the food didn't totally agree with his digestive system, so he went looking for a rest stop. Finally he found a port-a-potty. Well, he went into the port-a-potty, had some major diarrhea, and then realized that the lid of the port-a-potty was down. Seriously, that was way more information about Neil Patrick Harris's bowel movements than I ever wanted to know. All I could think after that particular interview was "TMI."

Anyway, based on that story, I was nervous about this one. I was pleasantly surprised. For one thing, there was not one reference to bowel movements. For another thing, when he was chatting with Conan about how last year he and his boyfriend, by the way, I totally loved it when he referred to his boyfriend as "My better half," visited the playboy mansion. I swear, Conan's were all bugged out, it was the funniest thing. Now I'm no mind reader, but I swear I could read Conan's mind when that happened. He was thinking "You got invited to the playboy mansion? You're not even straight! You couldn't appreciate it! Why couldn't that have been me?" Well, that's what I think Conan was thinking anyway.

Oh, Neil also talked about this thing he's producing in L.A. Some kind of game, I think. I already forget it's name. He talked about some haunted house he did for Halloween this year at some friends' of his house. Oh, wait, there was a bowel movement reference. He said he didn't scare the real little ones too bad. He didn't want the kids dressed as Pooh to poo. Oh, and he also talked about trying to flirt while in a fat suit and how it didn't work out that well.
