Dreams of lollipops and candycanes.  
It's a squeeful time of year. Aside from mourning television due to the strike that's happening and other worldly current events, it's the holiday season. I have been enjoying many things this month so far. For starters, I finally got the tree put up (it's artificial, the first artificial pre-lit tree I've ever had in my life, sans the fresh evergreen smell of pine it's very pretty and shiny). Have been wrapping presents, decorating and whatnot. Christmas specials galore, last night's Supernatural was very touching and I can't wait for Gossip Girl. It's going to be sad once all new episodes of my fandoms are done, because I'll be boycotting television until the strike ends. But hey, we can pray for a Christmas miracle can't we? *is still optimistic*

Jodie Foster came out most recently, and rumormill has it that Queen Latifah is to marry to her longtime girlfriend. The latter is just gossip at the moment, but still I'm happy for her nonetheless.

And Hayden Panettiere is my hero. Seriously.

Randomly, does anyone else like to gaze at Christmas-lit houses on their blocks? It's like a tradition to walk or drive around and look at all the different Christmas decorations and lights on other people's houses, to see how who just did the generic decorating or who went all-out this holiday season. I mean, it wouldn't be Christmas without that sightseeing. There's this one street in our neighborhood, almost every house is heavily decorated with lights -- I seriously think the people who live down there are trying to outdo each other each year. It's insane, but massively pretty.

God, I LOVE the holiday season!

I adore Hayden. I love when celebrities actually stand up for what is right and not just something that will get them publicity. And I'm so glad Jodie Foster finally came out. It has to be hard hiding a relationship for that long...

Me too. Hayden's activism is just amazing, and I love that she's doing this instead of getting reported for something else that seems to have plagued the celebrity world (i.e. drugs, partying, fighting, etc.)

I can't imagine hiding a relationship with someone for that long either, but I'm glad she came out all in the same. Although our society isn't perfect with the acceptance part of coming out for the most part, it's better now than never especially at how far the gay community has come along over the years. I'm impressed at how people in the business are coming out now because of it. I think it's amazingly awesome.

lol! I'm glad you are feeling better and enjoying all the fun aspects of Christmas ^.^

I... had no idea about either of their orientations! @.@

I'm glad that Hayden is off saving the world SAVING THE WORLD while the strikes on... its nice that she's using her celebrity for a cause ^.^

Have fun with all of it, okay? ^.^

Hee, well it is nearly Christmas so why not enjoy it? So many things to love about this time of the year. :D

Hayden brings in the awesome. Even though she's still wanted in Japan after the dolphin incident, it's better news coverage than other celebrities when they do something stupid like drunk partying or drugs and whatnot. At least Hayden's doing something for a better cause in the world, which is why I'm loving her more and more. Her answers in that article are very articulate and real.

You have fun too, with how you're celebrating your holiday season. *hugs*

Exactly! Oh, and on your tree... we just got a new artificial one, lol! I think we had a real one once... and the verdict was "too many pine needles" lol!

Thank you! *hugs back lots*

Yeah, I didn't want to hassle for finding the right fitting tree anymore. And I'm the girl that's all "no fake trees! I want a real tree, with the real smell, the works!" But thinking it over, it's probably better to NOT have a real tree in our house because the tree never stays fresh and thus needles are EVERYWHERE. It's a bitch cleaning them up afterwards.

Wow. I didn't realize Jodie Foster had just come out lately. I thought she'd been out for a while. Color me totally oblivious to actual reality... or perhaps I'm just psychic?
Renéerogueslayer452 on December 16th, 2007 06:39 am (UTC)
I'd say psychic. ;)

I think people were suspicious, you know rumors and all, but she publically announced it in her own way so yeah. Either way, I'm happy for her.

I had nooo idea Queen Latifah was gay. Not that is matters.

Where I live the city has a WHOLE STREET! of Christmas lights on Display and it is right near my house. I love looking at lights!

I knew there were speculations abound, and there was some mild news coverage over the years but it never made the big headlines, so this is the first time I've heard it becoming a public thing. Or perhaps it's been known all along and I just haven't been paying attention. But like you said, it doesn't matter either way. As long as she's happy.

Lights are shiny! It's so beautiful, and I love seeing at how creative people can get with their decorative lights. :D
