What happens when friends know you have a love of the Golden Girls? That’s right. They send you links to Golden Girl t-shirts.

What happens when you are the one that loves the Golden Girls? That’s right …

… you buy the shirt.

But this does come with good message: “Stay golden.”

I will surely try.

I still have a pair of yellow short shorts and a yellow tank.

Tonight as I was leaving work I held the door for a man carrying an armful of dry cleaning. As I did he said, “Thank you … you’ve got your hands full yourself.”

I smiled, lightly chuckled … and thought, “what are you talking about??”

Then I looked down and realized I was carrying three tote bags.

So question … how many tote bags is the right amount for any one man to be carrying?

And If your answer is any number less than three, I don’t want to hear it.

10 cents for 10 years.

In April I celebrated the 10th anniversary of my coming out.

Unfortunately, one wonderful person in my life wasn’t able to be at the party that was thrown in honor of all those that had been a beautiful part of those ten years. Well, when we finally did get the chance to have a full afternoon to catch up where I could give her one of the button bracelets I handed out that night, I was thrilled to open up an incredible gift that she had made for me herself — a dime bracelet.

As she explained, the dime represents 10 years, and the year on the dime marks the year I came out.

How truly thoughtful and perfect.

Wearing red for #MarriageEquality

Today, I wear red in support of #MarriageEquality.

And the sea of red on my various social media newsfeeds is overwhelmingly encouraging. I’m proud of my friends.

Buying shoes online? Pay attention.

Well, it’s happened.

I bought a pair of shoes online. Went through all the appropriate steps: Selected my size. Put them in my cart. Made the purchase. Had them shipped standard.

And days later what do I have?

Aaaaaaaa pair of man-lady shoes.

Zappos Shoebox

That’s right. The shoes I ordered are listed with both male and female sizing for the same shoe. Apparently I’d missed this when ordering, but it was plenty clear on the order slip when they arrived – because on that piece of paper, only the lady size was listed.

Of course.

I ended up shipping the shoes back. Not because they were multipurpose manwoman footwear (we all know my habitual Ellen-esk dressing and the occasional wearing of the exact same outfit as women at work shows I’m not afraid to show off my style). No, that wasn’t it.

It was the fact that the front of the shoe looked like it could have comfortably fit someone with eight toes on one foot. Seeing that I have only five (no judgment towards those with more or less), the extra room was unnecessary. And rather unflattering.

Moral of this story. When buying shoes online, make sure you know if you’re purchasing from the men’s, women’s or menwomen’s section.

Oh. And know the width of your toes.

Where Am I?
