and the new ways to reference dinah shore keep a-comin’.
alright, here’s the story, i can’t seem to think of a damn thing to write about dinah shore. it was an amazing experience on the whole, though terrifying and overwhelming, but the fact is i spent a lot of time bonding with my friends and not nearly enough observing the curious species that is the “mainstream lesbian” in her natural habitat, which was my original goal. i did get some pretty great pictures of randoms, got to hear betty, the band that is responsible for the awful L-Word theme song, perform live at the pool party, and met dani campbell from “a shot at love with tila tequila” (okay, by “met” i mean “stalked with my camera”), but perhaps the mini-highlight of the trip was at the very end when we were all waiting for vanessa at our cars. suddenly, a few cars away, we heard “apple bottom jeans, boots with the furrrrr” blasting and were invited to a parking lot SUV party by some very friendly middle aged lesbians from god-knows-where. we all started having a crazy dance party and they were serving us cocktails of vodka and vitamin water (shaken. seriously, in a shaker)!!! it was amazing. it basically sums up the spirit of dinah perfectly.
moof’s bedtime was drawing near and we hadn’t even left for the white party!
this is but one photo in the milk and banana dance-off saga. please see my photo story for the juicy… milky… details.
bobbi with yuki of tokyowrestling.com, a japanese queer culture website. very awesome!
as you all can see, i had a FUCKING BLAST! the weather was gorgeous, our hotels were lovely, i didn’t get too drunk, didn’t have too much life ruining drama, got a pretty amazing tan, and even met some amazing new people. i was supposed to leave on sunday but i ended up staying an extra day because we were invited to this gorgeous mansion where we swam in a heated pool and hot tub, ate delicious thai food, and watched anna’s documentary. if you can get your hands on “A Lez in Wonderland” you must, as it is LOL funny whether you’ve been to dinah or not.
i guess that’s all. i missed joe like crazy, but i don’t have to tell you guys that. it definitely reminded me why i appreciate my little queer corner of the world in los angeles, all of my awesome friends, and my beautiful boyfriend, who isn’t a lesbian, but doesn’t mind if i am sometimes.
for some more dinah related laughs, check out my friend vanessa’s blog about it on myspace. she definitely got to witness parts of it that i missed, i.e. the hard work, the being recognized as a famous lezzie (VANESSA FROM CURL GIRLS!!!!), lesbian fights and tears, way more boobies, and chicken wings (don’t ask, just read). i also want to thank her so much for her hard work and for giving us (her friends) a purpose for being places like dinah beyond debauchery. a special thanks to her, sujey, and bobbi, for making the weekend fun for everyone, including the less-fortunate. so much love, so much FUN! i’m already thinking about next year… kill me now!
