Potluck, Pot Roast, Poker & Picket Party
In case you haven’t read my post, “We’re Not Just Lesbians”, this issue is about my big mouth and sarcasm that went wrong. A lot of these ‘lesbian’ groups like to hold events that will make everyone happy. They have potluck dinners, poker parties, luaus, bowling night and firehouse parties. I wrote an e-mail in jest, ranting off some ideas of what events I think they should accommodate. Bad move. I made some comments (joking around) and some of the ladies took offense. I did apologize, however, I can’t resist poking fun at our community. I’m a bastard. I know.
Anyway, to make a short story long, I get this e-mail from one of the members who I was battling with---which we became cordial afterwards. She writes this to me:
“OK...I thought you and I came to a good place.....we laughed and put it away.......who the hell is this......????At least you had a sense of humor.....geez!I'm not touching this one......Do you know this person? Not asking for a name...just curious if you knewwhat her deal was.......”
Apparently, Alyssa had thrown them an e-mail that was much more crass than mine. She is a very comical, cynical-type of person who is a lot of fun to be around. Her sarcasm can scare anyone, easily, if they are weak in character; however, if you get to know her, she's hysterical. She is a very talented musician, has a set of pipes on her you wouldn't believe (get your minds out of the gutter gals) and she plays a mean guitar. Get to know her- she is a wonderful person in spite of her dangerous e-mails. Yes, a force to be reckoned with!

I had gut feeling I knew who e-mailed this. I chuckled for a bit, and then thought, “Eeeek! What if these ladies think it’s me?” However, that thought passed, and humor took its place. I guess it is extremely hard to find events to hold and cater to people who do have addictions with alcohol (hence going to a bar or restaurant) and being sensitive to all of that.
Question: If you hold a poker party, is that considered gambling? It’s an addiction, right? They even have gamblers anonymous. Now I can be a real jackass and go back into their website and rant & rave like a lesbian lunatic screaming, “I have a gambling addiction! How can you be so insensitive?” But, maturity is rising in my blood. I will remain quiet and let them have their poker parties. I do plan to attend one of these 'meetings' and 'social gatherings'...beware ladies! Remember, take everything with a grain of salt, right?
Okay, let’s have some firehouse fun, shall we? It’s free to hold parties there, it’s a big room, and we can put a pole in between our legs, if so desired. I hope one of these girls is a stripper. Now that’s what I call a fired up party! They even indicated that it will be “BYOB”. They answered my prayers. Being that I am an alcoholic, (not recovering or former alcoholic) but an enjoyable one at that, I appreciated their efforts in enabling my addiction.
Aside from all the tit for tat bickering that our luau lesbians have set forth, I am hoping to meet all of them, in a neutral meeting venue, which will provide sensitivity for all. Sense of humor is a must, and no weak links---or you’re out! Let’s all have fun, joke around, and take light of this situation that is set before us. Our gay & lesbian community not only needs a drink, but a good laugh to go along with it!
I’ll say cheers to that!!!
