"Terry. You think too much."

Last night on Nightline, Michele Martin, the queen of ABC News, was the night’s anchor. She brought us the story of Father Raymond, a priest who decided to come out as gay to his congregation during Sunday mass in a small Indiana community. Taking one look at Father Raymond, I couldn’t imagine him having to tell anyone he was homosexual but I guess in Indiana, they needed to be smacked across the face with it.

Crying uncle

Okay. I give. Last night I watched two episodes of Queer Eye For The Straight Guy. Conceptually I still find it dreary but I couldn't turn away. When the messy blond fashion expert randomly said, "Show me where the bad man touched you," I busted up. I liked the Fred Flinstoney guy before they got to him and made his poor wife eat foie gras, but they did a great job on the long-haired carpenter/artist.

During the part where they watch their mark getting ready and utilizing their lessons on hidden cameras, I got a little uncomfortable but only because of their running commentary. The truth is, if I were alone peeping in on him getting ready for the Big Date, I'd have my pants around my ankles.
