Preaching to the straight folk...

So the husband and I went to this thing today called Third Thursdays, a discussion group for Asian Americans involving various topics. Today's happened to be about relationships. Never mind that we're the only queer ones there (though there were some hot boys there who kept tripping up my gaydar...), and who were the supposed long-term couple!

For the most part, it was pretty cool, though it was weird talking to straight folks about our relationships, and how there seems to be commonality behind relationships, regardless of that person's sex/gender/gender presentation. There was very little Queer 101 questions, though it seems that people were really wanting to ask! I guess that was the weird part, realizing that our relationship is fairly normal, going through the same problems and issues that straight couples do, with a little added queer twist now and then...

Guess that's another networking group to be involved in--at least it's only once and month, and I can put in some queer flava into it!

Hi Efren,

Just remembered I had bookmarked your site.

About this entry, isn't it wonderful when you can be yourself in mixed spaces and find connection with people.

Dance Dance Revolution Loss Weight?

Dance Dance Revolution games offer a specific "Workout Mode" in which players can choose a song, and play accordingly using either the normal step routine, or a modified step routine designed to provided a workout. The workout mode also allows players to track their progress, not in the standard step scores, but by calories burned, minutes played, and distance traveled. The game also calculates the equivalent of DDR dancing to common exercise activities, and can keep track of a player's weight as well.

The built-in workout features have inspired many DDR fans to make playing DDR their primary source of exercise, and some have built entire weight-loss regimens around the game. However, as with all new diet or exercise plans, it is recommended that one discusses the changes with their doctor.

There are many different types of DDR pad you can purchase. You will need a gaming system such as a Play station or an Xbox and of course the DDR pads and DDR games!
