Regina, GaGa, P!nk, AJ, Glee = <3

It’s late at night, I’m sat in bed, and I’m extremely bored, which brings me to this. Okay, I’m not promising this’ll be an interesting story, consider it more of an update.
First off, I’m going to see Regina Spektor which is a huge, huge thing for me. In fact, it hasn’t actually sunk in yet. It still feels like the dream I’ve been having for years. I can guarantee you a blog after though saying how amazing it was. I’m going with my friend Georgie, and we’ve decided that we’re going to take 2 disposable cameras each, both of our iPods, loaded with Regina songs, and the same with our phones. I’m going to get a t-shirt made that says ‘I have ‘Regina Spektor’ tattooed on the back of my neck’ because, well, I do! It’s going to be the best day of my life, bar maybe my little sister, Ella, being born.
Secondly, I’m also going to see Lady GaGa (with David and Keya) and P!nk (with just Keya so far). Now, these are also two major gigs because you just know that they’re going to be amazing performances, and I love GaGa and P!nk.
One of the reasons I know that GaGa is going to be amazing, is not just because it’s GaGa but because AJ told me. Now, ‘who is AJ’ I hear you ask… Well, I’ll tell you. So, in my previous post, I mentioned the Beaver Bunch, 4 lesbians and a trans guy on a YouTube account, blah, blah, blah. Well, AJ is one of them! I tweeted (@TashSaunders) that I was going to see GaGa, and AJ (@AskAJAnything) tweeted that she was amazing live. We got talking, and Keya (@Keya1992) joined in. AJ then asked me to mention her in my blog, thus, I am. But apparently, I’m not good enough for her to mention me in her video…! Double standards! Its okay, ‘cause she said she’s gonna wear her glasses for me on Wednesday. (Did that even make sense…?)
Oh, and Glee is totally coming back soon (11th November!), and I'm so excited for it! It was stopped for a while, cause of American Football, or something. And it's coming back now! I'm such a 'Gleek', and proud! And I've started watching South of Nowhere, because I'm a massive homo, and it's pretty good.
So, that’s pretty much everything. Life is sweet at the moment. College is good. Work is good. Ella’s good. Just, one thing… I just scratched my wrist and I think I trapped a nerve ‘cause now my elbow really hurts. Other than that, yes, life is sweet.

Hi, I'm Tash, and I'm gay...

I’m sat in my bed, on my laptop, listening to Tegan & Sara, and then it hits me. I am a giant, raging homo! Just looking around my room you can tell that I am a huge dyke. It looks a little something like this:
All my walls are covered in posters, pictures, photos, drawings, everything! I’m not even sure what colour the walls were. There’s a giant Xena: Warrior Princess poster by my bed, the front covers of DIVA stuck up, pictures of Ellen and Portia, ‘Naomily’ from Skins, several pictures involving The L Word, and when you lie down in my bed, there’s Tanya Chalkin’s Kiss right above you!
Now, this is just my walls. I also have a Buffy the Vampire Slayer calendar, next to my huge gay pride flag that has an ‘I love women’ badge on it, and near my leather jacket. Opposite me right now is season 1-4 of The L Word, a Sugar Rush DVD, all the Tegan & Sara CDs (bar Sainthood) and all the P!nk CDs. On my desk I can see my Lynx Africa, my ‘surfer’ necklace and my moisturiser, for men. Then I looked to my floor, and I can see my boxers, man socks, weights and Mark Hill man straighteners. I literally don’t own any woman’s clothes, bar my bras. I wear boxers, like proper guys ones, men’s socks, men’s tops, jeans, shorts, everything!
All of this is enhanced by the fact that I am in bed with just a wife beater and boxers, I have short hair and I have my tongue and middle labret pierced, and stretched ears.
On YouTube, I'm subscribed to the Beaver Bunch, and on Twitter (@TashSaunders), I’m following at least 3 LGBT type tweeters and various lesbian or gay celebrities, and for some reason there are 7 consecutive people following me, all with the word ‘lesbian’ in…
I use ‘gay slang’ on a regular basis, and when I see another gay person, I give them the ‘nod’ as if to say ‘don’t worry. I’m gay too.’ I even have a cat!! (FYI, stereotypically lesbians love cats.)
After realising all of this, I am shocked with the extravagance of my gayness, but you know what? I like it. I like it a lot. I feel comfortable with how I am, and I’m not gonna change for anyone.
