Lesbians Reunite!

Unlikely Lesbians

Good news, Maia and Jay are back together on Shortland Street. Seems that now Jay has discovered her one night stand with Norman did NOT result in a child (score one for realism), she regrets it all immensely.

Jay agrees not to rush off and do stupid things “if you agree to tell me what’s going on in that beautiful head of yours”.

Triple yay:

a) they are back together

b) despite gloomy predictions neither is now straight or celibate

c) no boring lesbian baby storyline – yawn – can’t lesbians do ANYTHING ELSE EXCEPT REPRODUCE!!

Shortland St Update

// June 1st, 2005 // 8 Comments » // Lesbian, Moviesandtv, Obsessions

Last night Maia dumped Jay’s sorry ass, rightfully, after catching her in bed with Norman… and Li Mei asked the question “what’s wrong with a jar and a turkey baster?”

But of course no one answered her.

Then she went crazy and called Jay “a lesbian ho bag”!

Oh well, it was all quite entertaining anyway.

Now we’ll wait eagerly to see if Jay is pregnant from her virginity-losing, one night stand with no thought as to her fertility cycle. My bet… of course she is!!

Best quote:

Uh-oh, there’s trouble in lezzie-land!

Shortland Street Loses The Plot

// May 31st, 2005 // 14 Comments » // Lesbian, Moviesandtv, Obsessions

Far be it from me to speak evil of Shortland Street, but what are the writers thinking with the latest plot for our fave lesbian couple, Maia and Jay?

Why on earth would any lesbian worthy of the name think it was necessary to sleep with a bloke in order to get pregnant? Jay even mentioned the jar and the syringe, but then next minute it was all, “let’s go to bed”! Why on earth did they never discuss what their partners would think of this idea? Let alone the fact that the poor girl has obviously put no thought into where she is in her cycle or whether she is ovulating or not!

Sorry, Shorty, I just can’t go along with this one.

A friend of mine suggested the other day that Shorty has got very “Grange Hill” at the moment. While watching Jake hang his giant “Jake + Claire 4 Eva” banner from a warehouse and then almost falling to his death, I was forced to concur!

Fingersmith

Discovered today that the BBC’s adaptation of Sarah Waters’ novel Fingersmith is screening in Britain as we speak! If you have not heard of Ms Waters, she also penned the amazing Tipping The Velvet which was made into a fantastic BBC miniseries also. Fingersmith is my favourite of her novels so I am very excited by this development. I will have to get the DVD as soon as it’s available!

The novels are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED as well, the twists and turns in Fingersmith will make your head spin!

L Word Drama!

// July 19th, 2004 // 1 Comment » // Lesbian

Recently we received a lovely care package from Australia from my buddy ACP. It contained (among other things) the last five eps of the L Word. Watched two last night and I just have to say, it’s turned into a fantastic show – the drama, the humour, the tragedy! The horrible Christian family organisation woman! That bitch! By the way, she was played by Helen Shaver who was one of the leads in Desert Hearts, the first ever lesbian movie with a happy ending.

It seems that Shane is turning into the Phil Hunter of the L Word (Bill reference, sorry)

It really has got better and better considering the first eps were pretty trashy and predictable.

Anyway, I am imbued with gratitude to acp for sending them over, and to the cast and crew of the show for making such great television!

Of course, it could all turn to crap in the last three eps…

PS Nice to see Snoop Dogg in it as well – he pops up in the strangest places – heh heh…

The Birth Of Birthing

// September 1st, 2001 // No Comments » // Life

Had an eventful weekend – went to our first birthing class on Saturday (we are doing 2 Saturdays in a row from 9:30am to 3:30pm). It was fascinating. Saw a couple of birth videos and all the strange implements that they use up in the labour ward like the epidural tube, the forcerps, the vacuum and so on. Hopefully we won’t be requiring any of those as Jan is going to the birthing centre, but they do tend to send you upstairs if there are complications so you never know.

We were the only gay couple there (surprise surprise) but everyone was very nice and there was only one woman who looked at us strangely (and ignored me in the corridor!) After all, it is in Newtown! Next week we learn all about care of the newborn child. We were happy to get our list of things we needed to get before the baby arrives, now we can just tick things off!

Fans of our pets will be happy to note that Bootsy’s photo has finally been added to the right hand column. Have put up some snaps of our new house as well.
