L.A. is just the place to be this weekend.



Are any of you attending the L Word convention in L.A. this weekend? I'm not sure if I'm going to make it, but I might see you out and about. Kate, Leisha and Erin are all scheduled to appear. Be sure to tell me your stories when you get back from it!


Also don't forget that Leisha Hailey's band UH HUH HER will be playing at the Knitting Factory Friday night.


The Donnas are playing at the Roxy on Saturday night.

My bday & Killola's last L.A. show of the year are happening at Safari Sam's on Sunday night.


And Tegan & Sara will be downtown Monday night.

This city's not so bad sometimes. :-)

Wow, I'm going to have to start blogging if the salary is good enough to afford those L Word parties! Are they serious with those prices?!?!

anonymous #1, what do you mean "blogging salaries?" haha...you must not know many bloggers. cause thats sort of an oxymoron.

if i were to go to this convention this weekend, id have to get in for free...cause i certainly cant afford the $120-400 price tag. but i know that lots of people who have saved up for the big weekend can...because its important to them. and to those people, who are going to what im now calling Lesbian DisneyWorld...have fun! :-)

arlan honey, I LOVE YOU, but trying to get other people's money is kinda tacky :S I understand you need the money to get a laptop to keep this awesome site going, but you should maybe think about getting a job like the rest of us. I know this is your job, but clearly you need more income. I think it's okay to ask us for help fund raising stuff, but this isn't the first time you've asked, you've done it with other stuff too.

ok i respect your opinion and i dont think you're trying to offend me. i dont want to offend you either, but let me tell you that you dont know anything about what i do for a living, so you cant say what i should or shouldnt be doing to earn money. you have no idea what i do aside from blogging. you have no idea what my finances are like, nor my history...

if you think its tacky for me to ask my readers for help, then thats fine, and i get it. you're probably not the only person who is thinking that. but telling me to "get a job like the rest of us" when you dont know me, is tacky as well.

another thing i should point out is that on a daily basis i get dozens of messages from people asking me how they can help with the site...how to keep it going, etc. again, the site being something separate from other things i do. ive not put a dildo to anyone's head (well maybe some peoples, but only if theyve requested)...if you want to help, you help. if you think its a tacky request, you dont help. and i still love you. to each her own. ya know? :-)

lets end this here.

I wish I lived in LA. I don't know about the convention, but I'd go to other shows you talk about all the time! Two more years... *counts down on the wall of my jail cell ... erm.. bedroom wall.

I don't think it's tacky that she's asking for help. I think it's courageous. People love her blog, and she helps a lot of people with it. As she said, we don't know anything about her aside from what she posts, therefore nobody has the right to judge her.

Arlan, baby, if I had the money I'd buy you a new laptop. PS: You're hot. ;)

hey anonymous, guess what? i'm anonymous too! small world. i just wanted to say fuck you. no, really. fuck you. hard. very hard. i bet it felt good to say all that, since you're on the internet and you're anonymous and you can say whatever you want. paves the way for a lot of cowardice - i mean courage - doesn't it? sure does. arlan may be classy and fair but i'm not so much. so just to be clear - fuck you, fuck you, and fuck. you. have a great day! go fuck yourself.

arlan said...

oh wow anonymous right above me...haha sorry that made me lol. and i thank you for your defending me.

but ladies (i hope), lets all keep a cool head here.

so i can hold a dildo up to it...

only if you request.

:-)
