1. Redroseblackribbon

Welcome to GALS....

My favorite place to be....

Touching people's lives...

For years numbered three.

It's not just GALS birthday that we

celebrate you see....

Because every day, I'm shown by GALS,

How to celebrate me.

The moment that Gerry entered my life,

gracing the television screen....

With one swoosh of his cape and a masked backward glance.....

My life was changed forever....

My heart never stood a chance.

His characters stole my heart....

But the real Gerry captured my soul....

Which lead me to this place....

Where I've been blessed ten fold.

Gerry knows we stand by him with

hope, love, and devotion....

The same things we share with each other....

Every feeling, every emotion.

We come here for friendship, support, and strength...

We stand beside one another to fight the good fight

to any length....

Our love for Gerry gathers us here every day...

Envisionment, encouragement, empowerment....

That's why we come back, that's why we stay.

Welcome to GALS...

My favorite place to be....

Touching people's lives....

For years now numbered three.

2. 57th Brigade

A GALS Daughter

- written to commemorate the 3rd birthday of the site

Congratulations GALS, your website is three,

But let me just tell you what it's done to me!

I'll let you in on a fact only known to some

That I am a girl living with a GAL as a Mom!

She used to like John Hannah, but that didn't last long

And then Gerry Butler came along...

Her favorite is Phantom, Andre Marek too,

And Drac, Jack, and Leo, to name a few.

Thanks to her obsession I know them by heart

And can tell the movie where he plays each part!

Wait now, I'll remember what things I can

And I'll let you know this all began...

It all started when Grandma took Mom to see

A presentation of show-tunes, if you will, a medley.

One of the songs from "Phantom" came on

She let the music absorb her and then she was gone!

Home she came and to Netflix she went

And soon enough the POTO DVD was sent.

As soon as she watched and saw Gerry act

There was nothing I could do to bring her back!

She watched over and over, how gorgeous he looked,

Absorbed by his hotness, what can I say? She was hooked!

"Gerard Butler" she read as the credits rolled

And the next move she made, for her, was quite bold.

To the computer she went and typed in the name

Hoping to find other who felt the same.

Soon she came across a new fansite called GALS

And after some time she even made some new pals!

It was a bit weird at first, I have to admit

But eventually I learned to just live with it.

Just before Gerry came along you see

The only family member with an obsession was me!

But it's normal for me, a simple teen

To get crushes on characters from movies I've seen!

From John to Gerry, guess it's just a thing for Scots

At least that's what I got when I connected the dots...

But never mind that, it's all cool in life

It's not her obsession causes a strife.

On the site she posted and anxiously awaited replies

while looking at pictures and marveling at Gerry's....ummmm..."size."

The first event she went to she let me tag along

We drove to LA singing each POTO song.

A midnight show awaited next night

And my mother marveled at the spectacular sight.

Seeing Gerry that big, she rejoiced *Fangirl scream!*

'Twas like being inside a truly wonderful dream!

Her next trip to SF she took alone

I wasn't so lucky and was left at home.

Yes, it was I she didn't take

So she could watch 'Wulf slay monsters at the bottom of a lake.

More adventures came as she made more friends

"Smoke Tiki" birthdays and fun without end.

Next came Wonder*Con where I longed to go

But I had a speech tournie then...so no.

Zack Snyder and Gerry in person she saw

As they promoted a film where the action was raw!

Speaking of which, on opening night

I was able to join her and watch sexy men fight.

And after all that she couldn't possibly wait,

So for Vegas '07 she set the date!

Upon her arrival she met GALS galore

Overjoyed to meet others who obsess and adore.

Friends, slots, and shows, topped off with Greek Ball

Was surely enjoyed by GALS one and all!

Soon later I got to again join the fun

When Mom and I planned a party for Spartans who lost...but won.

She went LA again, this time I missed out

When she went without me, yes, I did pout!

But I was a senior, school had to be completed

And unfortunately my Grad Party with this years Vegas competed.

I wanted her to go! Really! No Lie!

Instead she gave me a look and heaved a sigh

And then decided to stay behind

For my Luau-themed party we both designed.

After it was over she said it was fine,

"But I wanted you to go!" I continued to whine

So she took me upstairs and I was filled with cheer

When she showed me her new fund for Vegas next year!

She faces opposition from Grandma and Aunt

Who cross their arms and begin to rant

That she is committing a sin, it's called "lust"

I roll my eyes, whatever, they're just being a bust.

I support the obsession, really, I'm glad

Once you get used to it, it isn't so bad.

My best friend even calls after an earthquake to say

to my Mom "Is the Gerard Butler Collection Okay?"

See, our guest-room is plastered with pictures of Gerry

In his gold Leo garb and really...not hairy.

Over time I've learned phrases like "Thighs of Glory"

and GB movies annoy my sisters, but they won't bore me!

So now by this time you've been reading a while

And I was going to end this with panache and style

But instead I'm going with an ending quite sappy

Just telling you all how you've made my Mom happy!

She really loves all you GALS and I thank you for that

...although she does mention Gerry at the drop of a hat.

So to conclude, Happy Birthday, There'll be more to come

As long as Gerry lives...and then some!

My Mom is a fangirl, great to see her this way

So thanks for reading, I think I've covered all I'm going to say!

-Oh, Wait! One more thing, let you know

That over the years I will continue to grow

I hope to join Mom on adventures abound

So GALS let me tell you...I'll see you around!!!

3. Lorie McKinney (inspired by King Leonidas)

Temptation

In the oceans of your eyes I drown.

In need of the breath that is you.

Falling into your depths, surrounded by the waves of your caress.

The sands of time whisper your name softly across my skin.

I stand naked before you,

Yearning for what can never be.

You are my temptation from which I cannot escape.
