Gay quotes

"The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision."
- Lynn Lavner

"Why can't they have gay people in the army? Personally, I think they are just afraid of a thousand guys with M16s going, "Who'd you call a faggot?""
- Jon Stewart

"Homosexuality is god's way of insuring that the truly gifted aren't burdened with children."
- Sam Austin

"If you removed all of the homosexuals and homosexual influence from what is generally regarded as American culture, you would pretty much be left with "Let's Make a Deal"
- Fran Lebowitz

"Homosexuality in Russia is a crime and the punishment is seven years in prison, locked up with the other men. There is a three year waiting list."
- Yakov Smirnoff

"It's better to be black than gay because when you're black you don't have to tell your mother."
- Charles Pierce

A favour please...

It's gotten to the point where I have to buy more clothes. I'm not at my final weight yet, but there is no way the clothes I have now are going to be able to be worn as I loose more weight.

I'm right for casual stuff though. I've been going through boxes of clothes that I had stored and a lot of them are stuff that fits me now, so they have been going into the wardrobe. Some of the stuff is now too big for me, so that lot has been going into the pile I'm donating to Lifeline.

The problem is the dressier clothes. I've never been much for dressing up, mainly because I've never been comfortable enough with the way I look to make the effort, but now I'm getting to the stage where I am comfortable with my appearance. So, a little bit of an investment in some good clothes (not too much at the moment, I'll do the big shop when I reach my target) sounds like a good idea.

Then it hit me. Why should I buy new clothes here? I'm about to spend two weeks in Melbourne, and Melbourne is the place for clothes in Australia.

So, I'd like to ask a favour of the Melbourne readers (and other people who are going to be down there while I'm there). Can you take me clothes shopping? I don't know where to go, and I don't know what's good and what isn't, so help from natives and/or people who know clothes would be good.


Plus I value your opinions, so that would help me get used to the fact I'm not as ugly as I seem to think.
