Hottie McHotHot Spotlight: Enver Gjokaj

In a recent post I announced that I will be starting a lists called the
Hottie McHotHot List

I have done some swoon-inducing posts about hotties before with

But as an intro to the official Hottie McHotHot lists
I'm doing a special edition...

a Hottie McHotHot Spotlight on
Enver Gjokaj
***


To do this we are going to look at his levels of Swoon.
The Photoshoot Swoon
when they are professionally attractive
The "In Character" Swoon
when they are attractively someone else
&
The Just Plain HOT Swoon
when they are out&about/red carpet attractive


But first...
you may be asking
WHO THE HECK IS ENVER GJOKAJ?!

The Photoshoot Swoon


He plays Dollhouse hottie called "Victor".
If you don't watch Dollhouse you are missing out not only on the brilliance of Joss Whedon but Enver who, for me, causes major swoon!
He totally deserves to be a mainstream hottie!!!

The "In Character" Swoon



*pout* His IMDB Profile is sparse:
Date of Birth: 25 January 1982
Height: 5' 9"
Trivia:
His name is pronounced En-vair (rhymes with "where") Jo-kai.
Has a twin brother. [Could there really be TWO of him!?]
Went to high school in a small, rural county in Northern California.


The Just Plain HOT Swoon
I actually found an awesome papz video on YouTube.

I love that from :50 to 1:10
he actually
comes back to take a picture with a fan.

To stalk learn morn about him, I had to go all fan-girl...
I went to the Googlewebs and only found true fan-site:
http://www.enver-gjokaj.com/
It has plenty of photos
but not a bio! =(


So you get BONUS Swoons!
Screen Cap Swoon:

Fan Art Swoon:
With Co-Star Swoon:

Silly Photo Swoon:


*swoon*

Yes.
You Are Welcome!

I Married Mormon Bachelor Pad

So
last night
I dreamed about marrying one of the Mormon Bachelor Pad boys.
Yeah!  You read that correctly.
& of course that is not all..

fyi,
basically NONE of this is based in reality!
***

So in my dream J&C flew out to Colorado to meet me and a friend. Within the weekend we feel in love, proposed, then I deflowered him the night before our secret marriage ceremony.
Of course it was great, both the sex and the wedding,
bahaha, yeah I might be going to hell. oops.
Then in true box-block fashion, his roommate offered up that we all watch a movie before they had to be taken to the airport. Very sexually frustrated I cuddled up on the couch with my new husband and the next cut was the airport.

At the airport, he and I hung back and with tears in my eyes, I said I'll miss him. We exchanged numbers (because who gets married after they are able to talk on the phone, pppshh!) and I told him that as great as the sex was I felt guilty about swiping his V-card before the wedding and asked him if how he felt. He reassured me that it was ok and that he just sorry we didn't have a chance to do it again before he had to leave. After a parting make-out, he whispered "Just think about how it will be when you come see me."

Cut to: Back at home, I look at the MBP blog to make sure my new hubby isn't regretting the weekend and then looking at my schedule to see when I could fly out to Utah... But every weekend for a month I had a KBB concert to manage (they are my RL friends who are a band that I help out) and started to text my new hubs in a panic.

Cut to: My 3 sisters (irl I only have 1 brother, Alex knows this! tehehe) telling me that our families have found out about our elopement. I freak out at them and tell them to spread that it is just an engagement (My dreams are ridic!)

Cut to:The next time I see my husband, I am in the airport and for whatever reason that totally made sense in the dream at the time we are banding together to go fight evil who kidnapped his sister?
Basically I have been reading too much Black Dagger Brotherhood/Lover Awakened...

Anywho, the rest is too Buffy-meets-StarWars-meets-BDB-with-Blogger-friends to even attempt to type out...
So, the end.

Okay... This whole time I didn't tell you which MBP boy it was...
Well being that they are anonymous and only have this & this...
The MBP was tall with dark hair and blue eyes...
But I am not black and also curvy so...
Jake, if I married you last night,
I'm sorry.

Q: Is there any empirical evidence that authorizing marriage rights for same-sex couples wld damage the institution? Cott: No.

The following are [highights from] @TheAdvocateMag's live tweets from Day 1 of the trail. All timestamps are in mountain standard time. All tweets are linked to their individual url:

#prop8
Judge on the bench, court in session.

Boutrous asks court to record opening statements today pending SCOTUS decision. Cooper disagrees. Walker sides with Boutrous
Olson opening statements: "This case is about marriage and equality. Plantiffs being denied both right to marry and the right to ... ... equality under the law."
Walker: If Calif were to get out of marriage biz and classify all as domestic partner, wouldn't that solve the problem?
Olson: That might solve the problem; that will never happen.
Olson: Prop. 8 "perpetuates irreparable, immeasurable, discriminatory harm for no good reason."
Walker: If Prop. 8 is unconstitutional, how can [DOMA] be constitutional?

Olson: Even convicted murderers and child abusers have right to marry.... DPs seen as "equal" to marriage is "a cruel fiction."
Olson: Gay, lesbian parents "every bit as capable of being loving and effective parents as heterosexuals."
Olson: "Parenting not measured by gender, but by the content of the heart."
Walker: "Why shouldn't the courts stand back and let this play out in the political process?"
Olson: (After long pause): "Because that is why we have courts. That is why we have the Constitution."
SF deputy city atty Therese Stewart explaining societal/governmental costs of prop. 8: hate crimes prosecutions, health care inequity
Attys for Schwarzenegger decline to give statements.
Cooper: Californians did not vote for Prop. 8 out of animosity, "but out of special regard for this venerable institution."
Cooper: Marriage centers on procreation. Should not be "transformed into a pvt relationship designed simply to provide... ...adult couples w/ personal fulfillment."
Cooper "The reality is that you'll hear nothing but predictions in this trial on the longterm effects of adopting same-sex marriage."
Cooper: "That, if no other reason, is reason enough for people of California" to approve Prop. 8
Cooper: The people of Calif. are entitled to make their decision, "and they have." opening statements concluded.
Plaintiff Jeffrey Zarillo takes the stand. David Boies examines the witness.
Zarillo is candid, emotional on the stand: "Coming out is a personal and internal process."
Zarrillo says of partner, Paul: "I love him more probably more than I love myself. ... I want nothing more than to marry him."
Defense does not cross-examine Zarrillo.
Paul Katami: "Husband is definitive. It's something everyone understands. And it comes from a modicum of respect." Katami is Zarrillo's partner.
Plaintiffs' first exhibit: a protect marriage ad from the Prop. 8 campaign
Attorneys squabble over admissibility of campaign videos. Walker allows them to be played for the witness.
[Video played: Stand Up for Prop 8 ad]
Walker does not permit plaintiffs to play the highly parodied "gathering storm" TV ad, given in part that it was post Prop. 8
["Gathering Storm" ad]
LUNCH BREAK
Court back in session.

Cooper wants to see evidence of all public comments on broadcast of trial.
Walker: They're certainly available. I can't say I've read every one of them (there are about 138,000 comments submitted)
Def attys cross-examining plaintiff Paul Katami...questions center on teaching children about marriage in schools.
As with Prop 8 campaign, defense questioning focuses less on rights of gay couples and more on rights of parents to "protect"... ...children from school discussions on marriage.
Plaintiff Kristin Perry takes the stand
Perry: I never let myself want [marriage]. Growing up you never let yourself want it, because you're told you can't have it
Perry and Stier originally married in August 2004 in SF after Mayor Newsom ordered the city to allow same-sex ceremonies.
Perry on 2008 Ca Supreme Court decision allowing marriage: "I didn't feel like it was a permanent solution... ...and we had already experience an impermanent solution" in 2004.
"It's not the same thing," Perry says of partnerships. "It isn't the same thing as a celebration." from web
Perry: "Marriage symbolizes the most important decision you make as an adult."
Defense declines to cross-examine Perry. Olson calls her partner, Sandra Stier to the stand.
Olson: What is so special about the word marriage? Stier: I want someone who is my wife. We're not girlfriends, we're not partners... Stier: We're married
Stier: I feel [Prop 8 campaign] was used to convince people that there was a growing evil to be feared. That evil is us, I guess... ...I felt sickened."
Defense (again) declines to cross-examine a plaintiff (3 of 4). Nancy Kott, Harvard history prof,
takes the stand. Boustrous questions from Twitlonger
Harvard historian Cott: To think of marriage as universal around the globe is not accurate.
Cott on defendant's notion of traditional, "biblical" marriage: To be honest I found that amusing.
The bible is a situation where people are practicing polygamy. from Twitlonger
Cott: Only those who can't marry their partner of choice are aware that the ability to marry is an expression of one's freedom.
"There really is no comparison," Cott says of DP vs. marriage. "There really is nothing like marriage except marriage."
Court adjourns for the day, resumes tomorrow at 8:30 (PST). Thanks to everyone for following us today.

You Gotta Give Them Hope

-A blog
on Harvey Milk & MLK-

Of a Personal Nature:
Ryan Kendall is the witness "who testified about the “conversation therapy” he underwent in his youth and how he has been affected by discrimination." (source)
More importantly: Kendall on stand. Grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, born in 1983. Went to Evangelical Christian Academy (ECA). Remember parents talking about homosexuals being evil, seeking special rights. (source)
I don't know if ya'll know this about me but I was born in Colorado Springs, CO in 1986. He grew up in the same area I did and is only 3 years older than myself. As I read his testimony on the stand there were tears in my eyes, just as I type this now. I am so proud of my home but acts like this are so shameful.
"Conversion therapy" is BULLSHIT fueled by religious crazies and certain denomination... It is more for the closed-minded famil
y members, so they can "face" the other members of their congregation. But there is nothing to 'convert' or fix in the first place. UGH!
He discusses briefly the involvement of Focus on the Family (a Christian based org in Colorado Springs) and again I hate to feel shame about my hometown, but FotF is certainly a shame... So corrupt within it's own walls.
And people wonder why I have trouble trusting any Church org.

Some Twitter Conversations are BOMB.com

Sometimes on Twitter, amazing conversations with multiple people happen.
This is one such case- between some blogger friends and myself.
I just HAD to document it!
Please enjoy!


[for the sake of link-sanity I had to un-link Twitter and re-tink names as their blogs, but mine remains Twitter]


kate_mi @alexandriacadyh I loved your state!! I've now been to San Diego, San Fransisco and L.A.! I think San Fran is my favorite.

KatOfDiamonds I ♥ her state too! I think Cali-rado would be perfect! RT @kate_mi @alexandriacadyh I loved your state!! I've now been to SD, SF and L.A.!



kate_mi @KatOfDiamonds That's amazing, let's move to Cali-rado!


KatOfDiamonds #lovesit @alexandriacadyh RT @kate_mi @KatOfDiamonds That's amazing, let's move to Cali-rado!

alexandriacadyh
@kate_mi Come to San Fran I am only a few hours away!!

kate_mi @alexandriacadyh I will come ASAP. I would love to be back there!


alexandriacadyh @KatOfDiamonds @kate_mi Ooh I could never leave California...ya know unless I marry @Nanti_SARRMM and move to Utah ;)! lol


KatOfDiamonds um... Dear @alexandriacadyh... Cali-rado is a fictional place. Kinda like marrying Edward Cullen #gasp! ;o) @kate_mi

alexandriacadyh @KatOfDiamonds bahaha! I know that...but even then I could never even fictionally agree to move there. I have to represent!

alexandriacadyh  @KatOfDiamonds Also, I will marry Edward Cullen. Not fiction. #truth

KatOfDiamonds
@alexandriacadyh Ahhh! Does.Not.Compute!!!! Have you ever BEEN to Colorado?! lol


alexandriacadyh
 
@KatOfDiamonds No I haven't!

KatOfDiamonds
I was just telling @sarahFIERCE earlier, I feel my heart is split three ways: Colorado, the beach & London *le sigh*


KatOfDiamonds
I've thought Cali-rado would have made a great state since age 2. I am happy to have @kate_mi who understands the dilemma!



kate_mi @KatOfDiamonds I do think Cali-rado would be perfection! Couldn't you hypothetically move there with us @alexandriacadyh (since it's fake)?

alexandriacadyh
@KatOfDiamonds Okay I am an idiot. I get it. lol

alexandriacadyh  @KatOfDiamonds @kate_mi Got it! Yes let's move!


KatOfDiamonds @alexandriacadyh was it the confusing California + Colorado = Cali-rado formula ;o) #iheartyoumuchos


alexandriacadyh @KatOfDiamonds I think it was because I was texting and tweeting at the same time. I get confused...lol




So basically I feel that is one of the best Twitter conversations amongst bloggers that has probably ever existed. I dare you to disagree... but please dont! ;o)


Also in honor of this conversation I made this graphic:

Today Prop 8 Heads to trial...

WARNING:
This post is on a serious and personal topic.
No meanie poop-heads allowed!


If you know me IRL or follow me on Twitter,
you know I am very pro-gay
and one of the biggest fag-hags in my state.

Today is the 1st day of the Prop 8 trial.
It was going to be broadcast publicly on YouTube
but here is an article explaining why it is not.

Mostly I am writing this blog because
if you do not live in California or
if you are not actively pro- or anti- marriage equality,
you may not know what this trail is about.

Here is the Wikipedia page to give you a brief overview of Prop 8.
Yes- I know the arguments against Wikipedia
but it is a good introductory site.

& in my opinion the best description of the trail:

"Plaintiffs hope to take their case against California's Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriage all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and to overturn bans throughout the nation." (source)

This trail is sure to envoke a LOT of emotions in me.
I will be voicing my opinions here.
& as much as I love having 23 followers to my blog,
please ignore these posts if you are not going to be nice about them.

Also in my last blog,
I posted my current Twitter & Facebook profile pic.


& that content means I support the #NOH8Campaign.

& lastly...

I feel it is important to educate myself,
as well as all of you,
who is who in the trial:


Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker
Ted Boutrous: (Theodore Boutrous) a lawyer for the plaintiffs
David Boies: a lawyer representing the plaintiffs
Ted Olson: (Theodore Olson) a lawyer representing the plaintiffs
Charles Cooper: lead attorney for the defendants
Chad Griffin:
a Los Angeles political consultant, against Prop 8
Therese Stewart: San Francisco deputy city attorney
Jeffrey Zarillo: plaintiff, partner of Paul Katami
Paul Katami: plaintiff, partner of Jeffrey Zarillo
Kristin Perry: plaintiff, married to Stier in August 2004 in San Francisco after Mayor Newsom ordered the city to allow same-sex ceremonies


I will continue to update this list
and blog about this trial as it proceeds.

I am following @TheAdvocateMag's live tweets
for my coverage of the trial.
& so far they are very fair and unbiased.


so until next time...

Challenging Myself in 2010


I randomly found the previous pic while surfing the interwebs.
I find it to be a #truth.
Another #truth is that the isn't only one one-way path.

Maybe this is a morbid way of thinking.
But hey, it is a #truth.

During the same interweb surfing I found this pic:

It reminded me of my blog bee eff eff & her 2010

but also it made me think of my 2010.

I need to change up my life this year.
I need to challenge myself.

So,
I am:



ALSO

It is no secret that I love Chipotle.

I was wicked pissed that they were closed on the New Year.

BUT


I quickly rectified that situation.

SO

I have decided that
on my blog
for this entire year
I will be counting
how many Chipotle burritos
I eat.


YUM!
