Humper Dink

Hi folks!

The lame attempt at humor is at the expense of poor Englebert Humperdinck, who more than likely received ten lifetimes of chastising with that name. Sorry, Bert! Nonetheless, Happy Gay Pride, everyone! Getcher gay groove on!

Here are some sites worth mentioning around the net and elsewhere lately:

1) My piece, “Two Smiles” is up at A-Minor paired with images by the artist Sina Evans. Thanks editor, Nicolette Wong. Two Smiles « A-Minor Also, great news: Eryk Wezniak is now Art Editor at A-Minor! Kudos, Eryk! What a great addition.

2) xTx has posted the first supermodel  summer read with TIM JONES-YELVINGTON WAS A SUPERMODEL!!! Too fab for words! NOTHING TO SAY: SUPERMODEL SUMMER!

    This article written by Meg Tuite about the mother-daughter relationship is so lovely. Thanks for bringing this, and all the weekly others, to my attention, Robert. You are making me a better writer (and person) for this.

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A number of my blog visitors have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Anyhow, love your posts! Keep up the great work!
