love is a pebble laughing in the sun
LBDL, Happy New Year to you. You put the sen in sensual!
Still searching for the right brainy quote.
YAY, a fellow tomboi. My boy is not good at air hockey but loves skimming stones, collecting stones and climbing trees.
To you too, Annemarlen!
Thank you for your awesome words throughout the past year.
You have a way of making me laugh, and cry.....
Happy New Year to you & and those you love...
Kitty..... Thank you for your friendship, it means a lot to me.
I know that 2009 will be a sensual delight for you !!
Enjoy your blessings in the coming year...
Happy New Year! Minnie, good luck for your inner tomboy in 2009!
You are so right Cris...children are the future. Every step that we take, every positive move forward that we make, is one more obstacle that they will not need to overcome to live fulfilling lives.
Building a gentler world now, insures a safer world... with possibilities for understanding, that we have only begun to realize is so important to our survival.
Happy New Year and .......
Blessings to you and your family Cris.
he he, look, we love ya...
Yes, ah, thanks, would you do that for me?! Just to bad, I forgot my 12 now here in Germany.
I know that 2009 will be an awesome year for you Tex....
Happy New Year my friend !!
LOL... I have my 12 grapes right here with me! Should I add 12 more for you?
Smooch, sweetheart! All the best back at ya.....
OH! this thread just made me love all of you guys! Hooray for 2009
“¡Salud!” y Feliz año nuevo, Cris.
P.S. Don't forget the grapes..
Where is our Rover? much love and blessings to you!! Wish you all the best for 2009!
Okay, there seems to be a consensus here - I'll have to copy that down some place to remember how to describe myself.....
Hi ya, dornac,
that's def. an adorable dancer gif!
love me some step dance ala FrAstaire.
Equality first then the rest will fall into place.... beautiful comment and heart....
Smooch, LB! Happy New Year!
Prost! Or as we say in Spanish... "¡Salud!"
Ein glückliches neues Jahr, Annermarlen!
Tex, I thought you were describing yourself instead of the football!
Haha, that's just very cute.
Too cute - and yes, we must plan a meet in '09
LBDL, as I said in my last reply to you at the "Christ, I'm angry" blog... THANKS! Thanks for the magic you bring to this site! It's more than just a pleasure reading your posts, lady.
I share your dreams and resolutions for 2009... I just hope inequality is not only erradicated from our community, but also from the face of Earth. I wish we may put at least the first stone to build a world where each and every man and woman (and especially, kids) may have a real chance to make all their dreams come true.
Happy New Year to you and your loved ones!
Germany, 3 hours till 2009.
A toast to all you VP'is, let's have a virtuell glass champagne together. I’ll drink to your health, love and joy. May you all have a great and save new year.
Shall we dance?
Oops! It came out in the wrong place. Taking it down to Dornac, special delivery!

Not so "inner" tomboi looking for a friend.
Does yours like air hockey? How about skimming stones and climbing trees? The kind with gently sloping branches for those less agile than they once were.
Pretty pretties! This is not the ball you play mud sac with.
Still more interested in Minnie's glove.
I wanna play! I wanna play! I don't run very fast, but then, when you hit it far enough you don't really need to.
"Communicate, don't assimilate." This is really what it is all about. Instead of giving in to those who tell us to be nice by blending in, let's be nice and be ourselves. After all, we're pretty awesome folks.
I do think it is important to see and be seen.
We need to understand how those who damage us think, but not accept their reasoning as more important than our own. By making our own thoughts and ideas known in a rational way, and no, that does not mean demure, we assert ourselves as equal beings who must be acknowledged.
We need to recognize what needs to be done to make advances within our own families, schools, places of worship, neighborhoods, towns, states, and country. True progress begins in the minute to minute interactions, and culminates on a federal level.
We need to support each other. Our road can be quaint and peaceful, but also arduous and full of pot holes. Those outside our community build enough roadblocks for us. Its time to stop adding to them ourselves.
lol...yeah at almost the exact same time. I love synchronicities like that.
"Fight Prime Time. Read a Book"
Hahaha. Too funny. We said the same thing.
Tex, I thought you were describing yourself instead of the football! Hehe.
Here's a 2009 resolution: Tex, Peacekitty & Minnie must meet up to play a game of catch.
"Soft yet firm, conservatively flashy, and fun……"
I thought that was you.
Soft yet firm, conservatively flashy, and fun......
The Laser Grip,
and there's not a thing wrong with sucking....at softball and being a great catch....
Oh I love to play catch with the ball and glove. I suck at softball but I'm great at catch.
Tex, What's a laser grip football?
Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!
Professor, Grace and Diana, you're adorable. I'm going to be gay every day and explain to everyone why I'm different. xoxo - PK
Happy New Year to 3 fabulous lesbians!! To Grace, Diana and the Professor... I would like to wish all of you the best that 2009 has to offer, and more !!
First, let me thank each of you for your strength of purpose. I truly believe that Velvet Park, and it's growth, will/is touch(ing) a multitude of women..... And, through it's growth, allow for the 'unity' of thought and action between women who would have never had the opportunity to share their experiences without this connection.
I am amazed at the 'global' effect that our 'web' connections, within the LGBTQ community, can encourage. Speaking with women from France, Spain, Germany, Australia etc. and sharing our common experiences and hopes within the lesbian, and gay community, is a blessing.....for this, I thank you.
Making resolutions is not something that I normally do for myself..... However, hoping for a strong, visible and respected gay community is a necessity in 2009. It isn't a dream to desire freedom and equal rights. These ideals have been fought for over generations of struggle......We, as a community, can not back down on our demand for equality on '09. The right to equal protection under the laws, of this great nation, are meant for all people......
So, in summary...... I am resolute to see that 2009 is a year of inclusion. Not simply the hope to dream of inclusion. I challenge the new administration, in Washington D.C., to stand up to the right - wing - bigots that have had a stronghold on 'humanity' for the last 8 years, and break the cycle of hatred, ignorance and intolerance.... This challenge goes to all elected, and appointed, officials who have professed to care about, and represent all people. Inclusion, not exclusion........ it must happen in 2009.
My hope is that, universal love and understanding, is truly represented in the faces of all, men and women, that hold the key to real change. That the inequality that has become so prevalent and acceptable, is eradicated throughout the global LGBTQ community.......
My hopes for 2009 are not solely for myself, but for all of my sisters and brothers who's lives are marginalized because of who they love........
Equality? Is that too much to ask for in '09?
Live in Peace...
Love in Abundance...
(apart) Dornac, i think joking don't need a "c"
and i love your dancer.
Ohhh, I'm jealous about your football! I was just dusting off my baseball glove.
Gracias, Chris, for the Feliz Año Neuvo! Wishing you the best.
Health and happiness; perserverance and patience
Professor - nice argyle and rims; Diana - nice Gay Rights tee; Grace - pearl buttons (femme here, sorry, you guys are cute)
Happy New Year to all - be safe!
Minns, I got a black and silver Laser Grip football for Christmas. Let me know when you want to play catch.....
see, cuz choice is something for ALL THE HUMANS!
I still want to know who the sadist torturing Theon in the dungeon...
