'Tales of the Sissy' is a play on words related to Armistead Maupin's novel 'Tales of the City' which chronicles the daily lives of several seemingly unrelated people. Since my blog chronicles my daily life and I am gay (hence the stereotype 'sissy'), I decided to call my blog 'Tales of the Sissy'.

Welcome to Friday fragments, my weekly recap of topics too big to forget, yet too small to be their own post.
My friend Marty sent me this and I got a chuckle out of it.
I was off work today. I have leave I needed to use or loose so I took today off. I ran a few errands (post office, bank, etc.) and signed/addressed Christmas cards. I got about 1/2 of my list done and in the mail.
I saw these photos over on Bob's blog and just had to repost them!
You KNOW none of her friends can complete with her holiday spirit.
I must have gotten this photo and its accompanying story from 25 different people this week!
What do you get for that person on your holiday gift list who has everything? THIS!! Or, maybe THIS!!
My friend Jared sent me this, and I've since seen it on a few other blogs, too. Love it!
By now you've heard that NY voted down the marriage equality bill, but did you hear the speech given by Senator Diane Savino? Its concise, its logical, its truthful, and its wonderful. I'm in love with this woman! And although gay New Yorkers are likely still smarting over the loss, at least they can feel good that they have such an ally in Senator Savino.
Jared sent me this and I love it, too!
My friend Lisa sent me this article about a couple who live in the smallest apartment in Manhattan - just 175 square feet! I love this! I realize that may sound insane coming from a man who lives in a house about 23 times the size of their apt, but its true. Small spaces force you to only keep what you can't live without. No collections, no clutter. Its liberating. And to own an apt in Manhattan in just 2 years, giving them money to travel, eat out, etc is a fabulous concept. I think I could do it!! Not with Spouse; but I could do it.
