This is going to be a very boring post, I’m afraid. I want to be amusing but I’m simply too frazzled.

Because I’m going to be on a reality show.

Technically speaking, it’s not a reality show; it’s what’s known in Hollywood, I understand, as a docu-reality show, because it’s not fake enough to be a reality show.

For some months early this year, a Sundance Channel camera crew followed me and my friend H., collecting footage for a show called Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys about the friendships between straight women and gay men. We were one of four couples whose stories the show would tell, over the course of eight half-hour episodes.

Well, the first two of these are a week from tonight at 10:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.

They haven’t shown us the episodes, though the first one is apparently available On Demand for people with Time-Warner Cable.

If you want to read more about the show or see clips of me and H. or of the other three couples, you can do so here.

I’m just praying really hard that there are no shots of me picking my nose.

    I will be looking forward to this as it has introduced me to Mr. Derfner, and at the very least his wonderful blog…Just wondering, is it ok to be a straight male who happens to like boys who like boys?

    Faustus, it’s on my calendar already. However, now I’m worried that my plan to some day go to New York, get your autograph, badger you into having coffee with me to discuss literature and screenwriting, and proudly state that I have been following your blog for 7 years to all passersby will be run asunder by the thousands of others who will. . . now be doing the same thing. I can carry a sign saying “Well, I knew him when” but I think you would be appalled. Take care and don’t let fame go to your head :-). –Roxzana

    Hey–your photo is in the Arts Section of NY Times today (Dec. 7th) above review of your TV show. (Of course, you have already seen it, but this is for benefit of those who may have missed it.)

    My quest for good TV does indeed continue. However, you should know that you and your dear girlfriend Sarah were the only highlight for me…especially when you sang your delightfully hilarious song and she spoke of fornicating pigeons. Thanks for taking the time to comment on my little site.
