Book Review: A Very Pink Wedding - A Gay Guide to Planning your Perfect Day, by Nicola Hill
I read this several months ago, but it seemed wise to hold off reviewing until after the event. This is a simple and very practical book, informative but not patronising. Whether it's really vastly different from a straight wedding planning book is a moot point - the emphasis is probably a little different. There's a definite punt on being unconventional, as there are no conventions. The cynical thoughts of Matthew Parris are among various entertaining soundbites. The only irritation is the repetitive references to the author's own web site, an understandable cross-selling effort but repeated more often than the synopses on an imported Channel 5 documentary.

There could perhaps be more of an explanation of what you need to do afterwards - one of the registrars we spoke to seemed to believe that everyone would need to see our partnership certificate, but in fact none of the financial institutions I've been in touch with are the slightest bit interested, so long as my name hasn't changed.

Of course, when Thora gets around to changing to Mr TQ you will have to go through all the name change palava, plus presumably get your shiny certificates updated. Have you thought of giving one of the copies to his mum? She'll probably have it framed and hung next to his GCSEs in the living room.

I believe that's Captain Jack (John Barrowman) and the Doctor (Christopher Ecclestone). qatsi & kharin's hair is a little shorter :-)

Ah! I clearly need to watch more of some certain BBC science fiction shows. :-)

Obviously that scene caused as little of a fuss in Canada as it did in the UK. (I presume it's aired in Canada; it's from the last episode in the 2005 season).
