The Face of Bilerico

I am the face of Bilerico while Bil's traveling, and while Alex is not traveling due to the giant French transport strike today.

Do you recognize that picture to the right?

Anywho, the French are mad at pension and job cuts after center-right President Sarkozy's promises to make ordinary people richer by boosting corporate profits failed to materialize and his party lost the recent regional elections to the left.

Those French know how to do a sit-in! We're thrilled that ten people here finally got the gumption to stage a sit-in at Speaker Pelosi's office to demand ENDA job protections. But the French don't do it like that.

They don't sit, they make you sit.

Oh, and by the way, Rep. Frank says ENDA's going as soon as Congress gets back from recess.

Enjoy the site while Bil's away! If you need anything, feel free to email me, and I'll feel free to wring my hands and blame Google.

Pay no attention to that woman behind the curtain! Go - before I lose my temper! The Great and Powerful Oz has spoken!

Mostly transport was just reduced, not really eliminated. The metro near my apartment was down to half the trains it normally uses, but that made it unridable since it's already normally over-capacity. I waited there but they wouldn't let me on since everyone was already stuffed in like sardines.

The buses were at 3/4, so I took the bus and showed up 20 minutes late. My second school was canceled, though, since it turned out to be a general strike instead of just transport (and, of course, no one informs me before I get to the school).

That's a French strike for you. They happen more often, but not everyone participates so everything is still almost normal (unless you live on the 13). At least the CPE strikes 5 years ago, when I first got here, lasted until the law was changed.

Anyway, thanks for agreeing to post boy pics, Jill. That is what you agreed to do... right?

Alright Jill. You finally tipped your hand.

You and Alex have been holding out on us. Time to fess up. How exactly did you two, from behind the Bilerico curtain, manage to get Bil and Jerame to leave on vacation after eight years? And get the French transport workers to strike simultaneously? What are you two planning?

And WWWHHHHYYYYY have you not shared your techniques and strategies with the LGBT community at large here in the US?

And Alex, is it exciting to be under deep cover? And when does the tell-all expose come out? Will there be pictures? And what are you really doing while "not traveling?"

And which of you wears off grey button up suit jackets, a monocle and has a white Persian behind that curtain? Who is Number One and who is Number Two? Or is there no Number Two to avoid Double Entendre?

Answers please. Or I'll email Dan Choi and have him get it out of you both, ze hard vey.

Okay, I know my sense of humor gravitates towards the bizarre but I don't think it was quite bad enough to kill the thread. Sheesh.

Does that make Alex the man behind the curtain?

Jillian, I am sure you can keep the site going without too many problems ( or phone calls to Bil or Jerame ). My question is are you also in charge of vacuuming the carpets, watering plants and feeding fish?
