Big Gay Hudson Valley's Wedding Showcase - Sunday, Sept. 25th

Same-sex couples can now get married in the state of New York, which is great!

...if you want to get married.

I know, I should be a big proponent of gay marriage, considering I help organize a gay pride parade, but really, I'm like, 'whatever'.

It's sort of like the 'gays in the military' issue.

Yes, we should have equality in the military, but you're not going to find me enlisting.

In theory, people get married for love. That's very romantic.

But then, once you sign the papers, it's really this big exchange of property and money, health and tax benefits....

Call it what it is, folks.


The part that I do like, in this new gay marriage state that we live in, is the PARTY potential!

If you focus on the great parties that can happen!!! Now, you have my attention!

Trixie's Horahouse!

I'm helping my good friends over at BigGayHudsonValley.com.

They are doing a wedding showcase.

CLICK HERE for all details.

Sunday September 25th :: Noon until 5p

Terrapin Catering at Dinsmore
371 Albany Post Road (Route 9)
Staatsburg, NY 12580

It's just south of Rhinebeck, so it's kinda close to us.

Hudsonians, you should register as a vendor, this way, you can help promote your space or service.

It's a good idea. Here's the form to fill out to be a vendor.

If people want to get married, great! Do it.

See you at the showcase!


Tell 'em Trixie sent you! (That will get you absolutely nowhere, but you can say it).

Facebook Etiquette - Where is Emily Post when you need her?

I tried to find information on-line about proper facebook etiquette. It's a big issue. People don't know what to do sometimes.

I found a lot of nonsense - but, then I went straight to the source, Ms. Emily Post!

"Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others.
If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use."
—Emily Post

That sums it up. Most of my facebook etiquette issues with "facebook friends" are when someone posts, links, un-friends, etc. and you think...

"Why would someone say/do something like that?"

The answer is probably because they are not considering the feelings of others.

Thanks, Emily!
