Callie Torres is my Spirit Animal

Sara Ramirez is taking a break from Grey's Anatomy, which means no more Callie Torres, so I'm not a happy camper!

Sara Ramirez leaving Grey's Anatomy
Yep, pretty much...

Basically, Callie Torres is my Spirit Animal and Sara Ramirez is just an overall amazing human being, so I'm really not happy that she's taking a break from Grey's Anatomy. Not only because this means no hope for a Calzona reunion anytime soon, but because I'll miss Callie.

Sara Ramirez goodbye
The official message from Sara Ramirez' own social media accounts
Officially, it's being called "taking time off", so she's not completely leaving the show for good. And I'm very happy that this is clearly her own choice. But who knows how things will play out with both the show and her own wishes for the future. With no real goodbye or any kind of chance to prepare for this, I've just been sad about it.

My wife actually saw the news first - amazingly enough since I always tend to be with one, who gets the spoilers - and even noted to me later that it clearly took me a few hours to process this information. Now, I feel like I've gone through all the five stages of grief...

 The 1st stage: Denial

The 2nd stage: Anger

The 3rd stage: Bargaining

The 4th stage: Depression

The 5th stage: Acceptance

Ahh, who am I kidding... Truth is, I'm still in complete denial and haven't watched the last episode of Grey's Anatomy because it also marks the last episode with Callie Torres and Sara Ramirez...

Yep, that's my way of keeping control: You say I only have one episode left? Well, then I won't watch it till I'm ready. So yeah, I get to decide when it's the last episode for me.

Much love - especially to Sara Ramirez for all she's given us both on screen and off - but not too many smiles right now,

P.S. This is the latest message from Sara via social media, so maybe we'll have the chance to see her in something else soon. I'm certainly ready to go to New York and watch her on Broadway! Just sayin'...

Spring time is Statement time

I love Spring because - even more so than New Years Eve - it feels like everything is starting over and coming to life again

Also, people are coming out (pun intended) a lot more, and seem more open to both life and other people. Yes, even those of us that are actually pretty introverted!

Let's Get One Thing Straight - Tank Top
An all-time favorite!

Also, I love seeing all the FABULOUS statement T-shirts out there, and yes, I do own quite a few of the ones I'm about to share with you.

Like the headline says: Spring time is Statement time... and my statements tend to revolve around LGBT puns and jokes.

There's the plain and simple:

Ahh yes, Galpals... ;-)
Just Gals Being Pals T-shirt

A little something for a gal's best friend:

And do remember to stay hydrated - maybe while matching your dog's bandana?

How about a little something for being out - or just being an ally - at work?

Ahh yes, Spring time is indeed here... and I'm all about being out and proud. 

And honestly, I love the recognition in the eyes of other queer people (or just the acceptance from anyone really).

Have a great day,

Happy Friday the 13th

Yeah, I couldn't really do a post today and NOT let it be about this special horror day.

But I'll keep it short and sweet, since I'm just recommending you check out this Top 5 of the best horror short films.

Yep, that's free (and legal) entertainment for you.

You're welcome,

'Person of Interest' is finally back

And I'm in love with the show all over again

It really couldn't be any other way; It's Friday and I've already stated that I love 'Person of Interest' so all I want to say is this: Watch it! ALL of it. And enjoy!

Here's a trailer for you to get started:

Not only does the show have Root and Shaw, who are played by Amy Acker and Sarah Shahi respectively, the show is also so intelligent and relevant that it should appeal to anyone on multiple levels.

Also, we already know Root and Shaw (or "Shoot") will have some steamy and loving moments this final season...

... so if you're not already on board, you need to get up to speed asap.

Have a great weekend,
