To the Moon!

Overheard recently in the Castro Safeway, upon seeing the People magazine cover featuring N*Sync member Lance Bass’ coming out:

Female: “Wow, did you see, that N*Sync dude is gay?!”

Male: “Well, I guess they’re not going to send him into space now!”

A Castro shop boasts a marquee that says something to the respect of: “N*Sync member comes out! There’s only ONE?”

Why such the fascination with the personal lives of celebrities anyway? I suppose it makes good water cooler talk…

    Yeah, that marquee was at the Magnet health center on 18th & Collingwood. I so kept meaning to take a photo of it to post. Hilarious. (Just, why couldn’t it have been Justin? [sigh] )

    …and I probably should’ve snarkily added:

    Actually, I’m sure there are plenty of groups out there that would love to send all ‘us gays’ into space. With no return.

    (Thank you. I’ll be here all week. ;-)
