"I think I knew I wasn't straight 
long before I knew I was gay."

EXACTLY! I'm not sure I have ever heard anyone put it quite that way but it is, for me, the perfect answer and perspective on what it's like to not be heterosexual.

I read Brian's complete quote on Joe.My.God.:
"The truth is I was gay my whole life. I had dated girls in high school. I think I knew I wasn't straight long before I knew I was gay. I knew by the time I got to college that I was gay. My team actually came to me to ask me whether I was gay. They wanted to talk about it. They asked me about the struggle and when I was going to tell people. I didn't go through the same struggles as people today. Today, you have 14-15-16 year olds so confident and secure in their sexuality. I was not. I wasn't a gay 17-year-old ready to come out to the world. When I got to college, I realized I was gay. I just didn't know how to go about it. My college didn't have a LGBT group to give me the language to come out. It was my quarterback who asked me first."

Ellen has such a deliciously effective way of making her point using humor and heart.
She weighed today in on the debate going on within the Boy Scouts of America organization regarding a proposal to lift its ban on openly gay members and leaders.
During her monologue, Ellen has this gem of a statement: ‘I realize this is a big decision for the Boy Scouts because, if the Boy Scouts start treating gays equally they’re going to become the first group to do it – after the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, the Marines, the Coast Guard, all of the United Kingdom and Cher.’
She also had this observation: ‘They won’t let their members be gay, well, openly gay anyway, but they’re letting them wear neckerchiefs and green short shorts.’
And this one: ‘When you’re camping in the woods, do you realy need to be worried about someone’s sexual orientation? You should be worried about bears and poison ivy and poison oak and black widows and tics and Lyme Disease.’
Ellen also said it is ‘heartbreaking’ that gays are excluded.
‘Obviously I think that the Boy Scouts should allow gay members,’ she told her audience. ‘The fact that they don’t is insane. … I hope when (they) finally decide to take action, they make the right decision.’


Wednesday night we were getting 1-3 inches, as of 6pm Thursday night we're in the 6-12 inch zone with winds expected to reach over 50 mph! It'll either be all rain or we'll wind up with 3 feet! I did the  storm inducted panic shopping this afternoon and got bread, eggs and milk along with the usual weekly shopping items. 

Good luck to my friends to the west and up north! 

UPDATE I: I'm now it the 12-18 inch zone. It's been snowing since before 6am and cars have lined up to get gas! I was up and out to drive my Aunt to JFK Airport - her son, my cousin is getting married tomorrow in NC where it will be 60 degrees and Sunny while we'll have just started to dig out.

1. What do you think of Valentine's Day?
I love it when I'm in a relationship and loath it when I'm not. 
2. Are you romantic?
Yes. When I first started dating, I was limited in my creativity but as the years went by and I got to witness other couples, I got better but still have a lot to learn and to find the man who will appreciate it rather than run from it.
3. Candy or Flowers?
Both! They're simple, cheesy yet traditional thus ultimately the most romantic. 

4. What is Valentine's Day like when you're single?
It's really a lot like New Year's Eve. It's a day that is built up into something special and extraordinary for some but for others,  it's like most any other day, it's either a good day or it sucks (most tend to end in the suck column) and I don't go out of my way to insure that it's a special day - if it happens it happens.

5. What do you plan on doing this Valentine's Day? 
I think this one is destined for the suck column as they all have since 2006.

6. Your relationship is ending, do you break up before or after?
Before. There is never a good time to breakup and occasionally there are truly wrong times to but I have tended to breakup before special occasions because inside I feel it is the more honest thing to do. Going through the motions to protect a lover's feelings has always seemed like it would only add to the pain. 

7. What was your WORST Valentine's Day?
The one after I broke up with my fiancé.
8. What was your BEST Valentine's Day?
The one where, in the middle of a restaurant (straight) overlooking the Potomac River, I got down on one knee, took a little red box out of my pocket, opened it and asked Peter to be my husband. With tears in his eyes, he said yes and to some applause(it was only 2002), I slipped the silver band on his finger and we kissed. 
"Peter. On our second date, dancing under the big disco ball in Colbolt, you told me that although I didn't know it then, that someday I'd marry you. I did know then and now I want everyone to know too. I love you and want to spend the rest of my life loving you. Marry me.

Do you expect to have sex because it's Valentine's Day?
Only when in a relationship or if it's the first date.
