"You ever get cum in your eye Gabriel?... It burrrrrrrns!"

So our plans to go to Barrie were postponed for some time in the future. It didn't take us long to come up with other things to fill our weekend though.
Friday we went on a dinner and a movie date. Saw V FOR VENDETTA, which was quite good. Well worth seeing.
Saturday we did a bit of running around during the day. The evening was spent with the hot lesbians. We met up at Tango for drinks. Twenty different drinks between the four of us, good times. Almost had one of everything. Not gonna do that again. I'll pick one or two and stick to them. My tummy was a bit off by the end of the night. I'm pretty sure I tried EVERY drink that came to the table.
Sunday turned out to be a big surprise. Did our usual brunch at The Goat. The only ones there were Howie and Neil as no one else showed up for some reason. It was quite nice though to have some time with just them. We somehow decided that we needed to see each other's homes so we did just that. Showed off our humble abode then headed over to their place. Well five hours or so later it was time to eat so off we went to The Silver Wok. I really had no idea it was that late. Anyway, a very pleasant afternoon. Very easy conversation. They are definitely good guys.
Gordo don't worry, you can never be replaced. I still love you best of all my friends. Besides, where else can I get such good drama? GAYS OF OUR LIVES is all about you.
By the way, had sex twice this weekend... Very hot!

"Strong like bull"

So I don't tend to write people off but I think I have this week. Funny thing that triggered it too. So the back-story is that since my ex, the asshole, left I got back in touch with my ex-wife. The asshole had pretty much cut me off from her, which due to weakness of character on my part I let him do. Reconnecting with her was pretty awesome I thought. I mean you can't really deny the history and really if she was a man she would have been perfect for me and we would still be together. Anyway, I digress. So after that reunion and promises that we are going to stay in touch this time she got herself a boyfriend and that was it. She has no interest in our friendship. Well I had a very hard time with that for a while. I thought she was stronger of character than that. So the trigger you ask... The new boyfriend smokes so she took up the habit again. Odd trigger but I guess it drove home that she might not be as strong of character as I thought. Or maybe I am stronger than I thought I was... Anyway, she has her life and I have mine and I am moving on. So Lynn, I love you, even miss you, will always be here if you need me, but I'm done trying. Have a good life; I do think you deserve it.
That's about all I have for tonight. I am just so fucking tired right now.

Chicken soup for the queer soul

So I am going to start my blog off tonight with a story I heard that I thought was so sweet and which exemplifies the changes that have happened in the last 10 or 20 years. Yesterday Claire went in to meet Meghan at work. Meghan introduced her around to her coworkers as her partner. Today one of Meghan's coworkers, someone 10 or so years older than me, came out to her. You almost have to be my age or older to understand how difficult that is for some people. This person will likely remain in the closet because of the stigma that people even 10 years younger than me likely would not understand. I'm not even going to bother explaining it. Suffices to say it really is so much easier to be "out" now than it was when I was 20.
So COLA was interesting. All about fetishes. Made for a good lively discussion. The common belief I think is that a fetish is a dirty thing but more people have them that realize they do.
So the weekend. May not be going to Barrie. Already have back up plans to go with the girls to Tango for a drink or two. Last time I had martinis my pants came down in public so who knows what might happen. :-)

Today is yesterday's tomorrow's blog

Today was just another typical day at work. I lived through it as I always seem to but really it is becoming a struggle. Three more days to go.
Tomorrow is COLA night so at least I have dinner with Meghan, Claire and Dan, the meeting, and tea afterwards to look forward to. It may be sad but it really helps me get through my day.
Tonight we had Kim over for dinner and it was a very pleasant evening. Dan is such a good cook I think I will keep him forever. I think we are going to try and have Kim over like this every couple weeks.
Last night, or rather this morning, Mr Wolfe stumbled in. As is usually the way, I laid down with him for a de-briefing of his evening's events. It wasn't a long one this time as he quickly drifted off to well needed sleep.
I think That's all I've got.

How much vodka does it take to get me on stage...

Well what can I say, the weekend was a BLAST. We went to Toronto to spend the weekend with Emma. Museums, shopping, drinking. The true city experience. Did the GEHRY Exhibit at the AGO, MILNE as well. Walked past the renovations at The ROM. It's not looking too good. I mean it looks awesome as far as structures go but I have to agree with Emma that they are ruining the original building instead of embellishing it.
Shopping was also a blast. Bloor Street is awesome and has the best ever WINNERS. It might have ruined any other WINNERS for me. Good finds at H&M as well thanks to Em.
Saturday evening was sushi dinner then off to Church Street for drinking. Started at LUB for Candy Apple Martinis that are even better than mine. Just add vodka, don't mind if I do. Then off to Crews. There was a line up so forget that, off to Woodys. Lots of drinks to be had. There was a "Best Legs" contest going on so of course Emma and I had to take a closer look. Somehow I ended up on stage with my pants around my ankles and a drag queen commenting on my underwear. I swear Emma made me do it. That's the story I am sticking to anyway. Anyways, that was followed by more vodka, then THE WEDDING CRASHERS back at Emma's place. Yeah, I fell asleep about 10 minutes into the movie.
Sunday was a sleep in, casual breakfast, BATA Shoe Museum day. All fun, all day. Then we hit the road and came home.
All-in-all, a great weekend. Next weekend; Barrie. I'll try to keep my pants on.

And the old black rum's got a hold on me

Well last night was Mr Wolfe's Positively Negative Lushfest 2006. All I have to say is I am NEVER drinking rum again. One rum and coke and I am feeling it today. Okay, it was mixed by the Captain so it was mighty powerful, and it was followed by another drink at Tir Nan Og later but it did hit me harder than it should have. Now it didn't make me all that drunk, just made me feel like crap today. I will so stick to my vodka.
Mr Wolfe had a good time. As much as I am over-protective I did leave him in Tracy's care and she did get him home in one piece. Physically in one piece anyway. Thank goodness for Tracy because I had actually left him in the Captain's care but he followed Dan, Jenn and I halfway home, with a drink in his hand no less. Still not sure where he ended up, last we saw him was on Queen St.
So this morning was like Grand Central Station around here. Drove Dan to work. Came back home and called in sick. Went back to bed. Phone rang several times. Doorbell rang. There was this beautiful policeman at my door. Wished he was a stripper but unfortunately not. My housemate's work asked him to stop by to see if he could come in to work today (that was a couple of those phone calls this morning). As it turns out we were not the only ones out partying last night, Brett was not in shape to go into work.
We are off to Toronto this evening to spend the weekend with Emma. Not really sure what is in store for me over the next couple days but I am sure it will be memorable.
No more blog till Sunday night at the earliest.

Hot Lesbian Triumphs and The Mating Rituals of The Wolfe

I am going to start off tonight's blob by congratulating Claire on the success of her pan sodium channel antibody test which she has been trying to get to work for a while now. Claire, your excitement about it was truly infectious. Gay Dan and I are both proud and excited.
So today was the day that wouldn't end at work. Or so it seemed. It actually did end though. Then it was a quick stop at home then down to The Copper Penny to meet Dan, Meghan and Natasha for dinner. Then off to COLA to discuss ex-partners. More swapping stories than discussing. Did I call it right when I said Natasha was going to have the most stories... I did.
After COLA was the traditional tea at The Goat. A little more discussion. Then home to see Gordo off on his date. Go get 'im Gordo...
That's it for now...

A target on my back with Gord's name written all over it...

Okay, I am going to admit something here today that is likely going to cause me some grief. Here goes... Wait for it... Here it is...
This week I have been feeling old. Not old in the tired or achy sense. Old in the sense that I am feeling time running out. Now that sounds dramatic and that is not how I mean it. I have just been thinking about where I am at in life. I am starting to look into a mortgage to buy my house. A mortgage runs 25 years. So I will own the house about when I am ready to retire. It just seems a bit odd to me. There is so much I want to do with the place and I figure I will never be able to afford to do it until after I own it and really I feel I might be too old to enjoy it then.
Okay I admit that intellectually I know this does not really make all that much sense. I mean really 65 is not all that old anymore. And at least I know that when I am 65 I will only look 40 anyway. Still, it has kinda been on my mind.
So take your best shot Mr Wolfe. I know you want to. And I'll still love you anyway after you do.

Sex, Drugs and Booze... Well two outta three ain't bad...

Oh my! I have not posted a blog since Thursday. There is definitely something wrong with that.
Friday night was interesting. Went to a birthday party just up the street. Well I hang out with a pretty young crowd. This crowd was pretty young but was definitely not MY crowd. I don't really care about drug use but I hate when people are so wasted that they become annoying. To be fair the more annoying people tend to be wasted on alcohol as opposed to drugs. Anyway, point is I was not particularly comfortable there since I really didn't know anyone there besides Dan, Gord and Doug. And Curtis and Greg too I guess, if only by reputation. Point is I really never have liked "house parties" unless I know more than 75% the people there. It's just a comfort level thing. Anyway, we came home by 2AM unlike other's who wandered in at about 7:30AM.
Saturday was spent doing some running around getting ready for the small dinner we were hosting. Dan and I have wanted to do dinner parties for some time now and finally did one. Okay so it was only one couple I still say it was a party. Besides, we decided we need a new dining room table that will seat more than 4 people before we do a proper party. I find I enjoy myself much more when I am in a more intimate setting. I don't enjoy small talk but I love conversation. And I tell ya, JENGA rocks. I am so going out to buy TRUTH OR DARE JENGA.
So some would say I was a bit excessive on the candles last night but I really like the effect. I don't much care for the two candles that dripped wax all over the place though. Oh well, small price to pay I guess. Still need to clean up one of those messes.
Today we did brunch at The Goat. Crowded as hell but we managed to scavenge a table for 11. That was tricky let me tell you. I find I am really enjoying these brunches. I guess after so long of having no social life I am really enjoying having one. It feels good to me to be with a group of people and still feel comfortable. I think I tend to be intimidated by people and feel like I am going to say something stupid or something. The more I am with people the more I realize it's okay. Just be myself. Anyway, moving on.
Today we did a bit more shopping. Looking for a file cabinet and of course a dining room table. No luck but I came so close to buying a 37" LCD TV. If the salesman had been a bit hotter it just might have happened.
Okay, that's it for now. Might be more later.

John Mayer is in my head...

Something's missing
And I don't know how to fix it
Something's missing
And I don't know what it is
At all

One more day till the weekend. So looking forward to that.
For some reason lately I kinda feel like life is slipping by and I am not getting much accomplished. Beyond the obvious goal that anyone who reads my blog knows about I am not even sure what it is that I want to accomplish.
Really I am just feeling a bit frustrated these days.

A freaky assed rainbow of colours

COLA night tonight. Started with dinner with Meghan and Claire and of course ended with tea at The Goat. Tonights topic was PORN. We had fun with it. Not much more to say about it than that. If you want to know more you should come to the meeting.
I am really quite ready for the weekend. It has already been a long week and I still have 2 days left. They are painting at work and I am not sure if it is the fumes or everybody bitching about the fumes that gave me the headache. Maybe it was the random and grotesque choice of colours used. What is it with corporate decorating; just a bunch of random colours on random walls. Why not just pick a colour and go with it. From my cubicle I can see a vile green, off white, red and purple. I hear there is a mustard yellow still to come on one wall that hasn't been done yet. That's 5 colours just from my desk. That really is a bit freaky.
Well now I must go pick up Mr Wolfe from work and ferry the fairy to the ferry. TTFN

Mr Wolfe, Defender of Honour!

Well in case I gave the wrong idea in last night's blog I just want to let you all know I am not angry. Just sharing some feelings. Thanks for caring though Mr Wolfe. I know you're there for me but it was just a little rant.
As for who it was that thought my blog was boring, I was one of them. I just found that all I had lately was a rundown of my day. Not generally all that fascinating. So again Mr Wolfe, I love ya but my honour needs no defending on this issue either.
Not going to bother recapping today since all it was was work and Starbucks this evening. Tomorrow is COLA, preceded by dinner with Meghan and Claire. Followed by coffee at The Goat. Tomorrow is Dan's first time facilitating the group. The subject is PORN. Sounds fun to me.
Guess that's it for now.

The CBC of Blogs, Boring but Uniquely Canadian

Well apparently my blog is getting boring. Really it has turned into just a recap of my day's events. Well let me tell you... That's about all I have. I am a pretty boring guy. Just kinda living my life. No drama. Maybe that is the issue, I have no drama. I leave the drama to Mr Wolfe as he is so much better at it than I.
When I started blogging I had a rant or two to get off my chest which I figure may have been mildly entertaining to some. For the most part though I really don't have much to complain about regarding my little run through life. I am easy going to the point where not much pisses me off. Well there is not much you could do to me that would piss me off. Or maybe it's just that no one bothers to do anything to piss me off. Why would they? I can't tell you how many times I have heard what a sweetie I am, what a nice guy I am, blah, blah, blah... I guess it's not a bad reputation to have. One thing I'll tell you though, if you want to piss me off all you have to do is mess with one of my friends. Of course the most that will get out of me is a few strong words in my blog. Oh and I will shun that person. Yes that is pulling out the big guns for me. Don't piss me off or you shall be shunned. If ever there was a threat...
Oddly enough the one person who I could say I dislike at this point did seem bothered by my dissing him. I am sure he is over it now as well he should be. I am over hating him and frankly now just view him as some random stranger with the exception that I would trust a random stranger with personal information more than I would trust this person. Some people love information, love to spread it, embelish it to make it sound better, or worse generally to those involved. Anyway, enough about that.
Moral of the story: I don't like cowbois fucking with my friend's minds.
By the way I am a firm believer in Karma. Those who spread shit and do shit get shit on. In a perfect world I am there to see it, or at least hear about it. If not I still know it will happen, even if I am long gone when it does.
So in closing, to my few but loyal readers (I mean you Jenn, among others) take a moment to comment on my blog. Ask a question. Tell me what you want to know about. Or you can always piss me off so I will go on a rant. Let's not and say we did.
Night kids...

Scenes from a Mall

Well Mike and Gord day was a blast. Headed up to Toronto with stops in Belleville, a quick detour through Trenton (no stops) then Whitby then Toronto. First stop in Toronto: Ikea. Then off to the Yorkdale Mall. As Gord was navigating we did miss our exit. Good thing no new jobs were on the line. The Yorkdale Mall is huge and pretentious. Neither of us spent any money there. Well other than A&W for lunch.
Headed down to Church Street after the mall. Got there without incident. Started at Starbucks. Bit of shopping. Pizza then home.
Yes we left all the bars on Church Street to come home and go to The Foo. What the fuck is that about? Good times though. Tracy came too which always makes it more fun. Dan didn't come so the rumours about our break up should be flying. Have to give the queens something to talk about.
Heading down for Sunday Brunch at The Goat. That should be the extent of the excitement on this, my last day of holidays. Back to work tomorrow. What fun.

So tired...

Just a bit to cover tonight.
Spent the day with Gord doing some running around and shopping.
Went to Kingston Brew Pub for dinner with Tracy then to Starbucks for coffee after. Came home and watched some FAMILY GUY. Now I am off to bed. Didn't get much sleep last night and it caught up with me tonight.
Heading off to Toronto for more shopping with Gord tomorrow. Possibly the bar tomorrow night.

Zondra's Drama Class

Hey ho happy readers. Quick recap of yesterday.
Spent the morning working on my MySpace profile page and watching HOUSE OF WAX. If ever there was a stupid movie that was it. There was something with the metal pipe through Paris Hilton's head that gave it a glimmer... No still a crappy movie.
My Real Estate guy Paul came over in the afternoon to take a look at the house I am renting to tell me if it is worth the asking price on it. He seems to think it is but will be getting back to me after doing a bit more research. If anyone needs an agent let me know and I will get you in touch with Paul. He's a great guy and, well, a bit of a crush for me... Okay, enough about that.
Spent the evening with HGTV, CSI and DAN.
The witching hour brought Mr Wolfe to my door. Then about an hour of debriefing the previous 6 days, or at least the stuff we hadn't covered on the phone over that time. Went for a 2AM breakfast at Denny's. Then back home, a bit more drama class then bed.
Today is a running around day. Pay some bills, spend some money. Gonna call Tracy for coffee tonight. That's it.

As promised

So I spent the day in Trenton yesterday. I didn't see Lynn but spoke with her on the phone for an hour. Went to the hospital to see the gang there. Nothing changes at all. Went to see Donna at her work. Nice to know I can still make a woman scream. From across the room no less.
Did tea and dinner with Dan and Meghan, then off to COLA. The topic was monogamy and polygamy, Gord is right, sounds like twins from a Shakespear play. The topic was actually kind of mundane. Maybe not the topic but the discussion sure turned out to be. So off to The Goat we went where the conversation was actually better. Oh and guess who the new co-facilitator for COLA is? Wait for it Gord. More ammo. DAN is going to be co-facilitating as Jeff is no longer able to do so. Meghan and I have agreed that he will simply be a puppet for us so we can steer the topics in the direction we want.
Well that is about it for now. Today is Real Estate Thursday. I'll let you know how that works out.
