If they didn't go to a dozen international circuit parties annually they wouldn't have to beg on line.

btw, the UK passed gay marriage legislation in July and it's supposed to be brought into force by mid-2014. Couldn't they delay their plans by a mere six months?

... ah, the life of an international A-List queer. And wouldn't you know that Eric's last boyfriend looks just like the current one.

Ugh. Insufferable people are unsufferable.

I give the marriage three rounds of roids.

Modified to add: Or three White Parties. Whichever.

So, he has responded on his Facebook page.  He says he is not having 4 weddings.  He says they are having one wedding and 3 house parties.  Hmmm.  If they were having very modest house receptions--talking very modest-- then if they needed funds to get mom to the one wedding, then maybe not so awful??  Have I been sucked in?  I mean, they didn't make up a lie that one was dying with cancer or mom was dying with cancer and this was her last wish.  If people choose to donate, then they aren't being taken by a lie.  People can choose to donate or not. 

Am I being sucked in?

Is it too late to solicit donations for my wedding from last year??  I really need to put the money back into my savings account, because I really shouldn't have had to use MY SAVINGS to pay for MY WEDDING.  There is a whole world of people who should pay for it.  Now, granted, Sid and I don't have the same physiques, but our wedding was a fraction of what theirs will cost.

While I'm at it -- maybe I can get my Marriott Points refunded and have others pay for our Aruban honeymoon.  Again -- why save for something when I can get others to pay for it.

Damn!! Why am I always late to these parties.......

After years of homelessness and a day-to-day existence, Fortner, now 28, was faced with the tantalizing prospect of a place to sleep, regular meals, and more thorough New York City services provided to people who reach a certain stage of the disease. First he would have to meet their diagnosis requirements; then he would receive help.

ďI didnít know about the services,Ē he says. ďI didnít know that once you have AIDS youíre entitled to all this other stuff.Ē

That silver lining was a surprise to Fortner. And while it might seem counterintuitive, contracting the virus has made life easier for other young homeless men in New York City, who in return for developing full-blown AIDS gain a roof over their heads and basic services.

Hmmm??  True, the extra money she gets from her deceased EX-husband's SS could be a good start!

BTW - she actually sent me a friend request from Facebook a cople months back!  Honest to goddess!!

Um, no.

Luckily, anything they raise over the amount needed to fly parents over will be donated to a really good videographer to take footage of the glorious event.

Here in Atlanta there are many, many people just like these two. They call themselves Libertarians but usually vote Republican. They tend not to age well.

Which is a comfort.

Well damn -- there goes our wedding at the Saigon Maxim and a dim sum buffet.

I was hoping to raise money on line to get my parents up here via Greyhound.
