Just another manic Monday

Over the weekend I found out that I had been on the receiving end of some good old fashioned homophobia. In a couple of weeks the manwife and I shall be attending his brothers wedding and have booked ourselves, along with his mum, into a hotel near the registry office. It turns out that we hadn't given all the necessary details for the booking so the hotelier contacted the manwife's brother who gave over our details only to be told that they didn't accept bookings for gay couples. Needless to say we were unimpressed. To make matters worse, when he enquired why they didn't want us they gave the following explanation: Apparently a couple of years ago a male lawyer had booked a room for "use" with his young male companion and they'd wrecked the room and this had caused "a bit of a mess" both to the room and the hotel's reputation. Surely the policy should be no more lawyers?! The manwife's brother was furious on our behalf and gave them a piece of his mind (this man would be a black-belt-jedi-ninja in the gay-straight alliance I think) and has transferred all our business, mother inc., to another less loony hotel.

Aside from the remote homophobia the weekend was lovely. I spent in with the manwife, catching up with old friends and lounging about his flat in various states of undress. Bliss.

And because I have to go grocery shopping this evening:

Hope you all had a super lovely weekend and that this week is suitably fabulous!

    Here in small town USA the excuse for being Homophobic is because God Hates Gays. I think it very presumptive of them to profess to speak for God. Jesus taught love not hate or condemnation. When a woman caught in the very act of Adultry was brought before him he said and I paraphrase: "Let those among you who are perfect cast the first stone." ed
