Five femmes and me in this Palm Springs rental house. I never knew you sorority sisters were such slobs! All weekend I’ve been picking up your empty beer bottles, Kit Kat wrappers and fast food containers. Which begs me to ask, how do you ladies stay so thin with a diet like that?
While Lipstick and her girls had their “Sorority Girls Gone Wild” weekend, this butch was much more subdued, playing the part of serious lesbian journalist. The highlight of the weekend, of course, being The L Word Press Conference with Rachael Shelley (Helena), Alexandra Hedison (Dylan), Elizabeth Keener (Dawn Denbo) and L Word creator Ilene Chaiken. (Note in picture where Keener’s hand is… I think she felt really at home at Dinah Shore!).
While Lipstick and her girls sucked down beers at the bar. (Again, how do they stay so skinny?!) I went to what was probably the funnest event of the weekend, the “Be Scene” event where women acted out scenes from The L Word. One of the girls in the house portrayed Helena in the scene where she loses a bet and has to sleep with that rich skank. Melissa did a great job, down to the accent. Celebrity judges Kate Moennig, Leisha Hailey and Rachael Shelley were very impressed and the team took third place in the competition. Unfortunately, somehow those photos got accidentally erased from my camera. Very strange.
This butch must have partied too hard all weekend, because on Sunday I woke up with a roaring head cold. After a few hours at the pool, I headed home for a long nap. I did wake in time to catch the first two games of the Women’s Final Four. Franco, our Curve publisher and “Daddy” and I cheered our Stanford girls to victory. Dionne and Franco tried to drag me to the closing night party at Hunters, but with my voice giving out and my nose stuffing up, I returned back to the sorority house and crashed almost immediately, tired, but with a smile on my face.
