Well tonight was a fun evening. COLA came to an end last week. This week we had dinner with Meghan and Claire as we normally do. Tonight we ate at The Merchant as they were part of the Taste For Life fundraiser for HARS and 25% the proceeds for meals there tonight were donated to that organization. Lots of fun, jokes in very bad taste, all in all, a good time.
After dinner we went to The Screening Room to see IMAGINE ME AND YOU, a fun little UK Lesbian comedy. Very enjoyable little film.
So that's it for now. Just want to add that I love my hot lesbians. HA! I did not wait 3 weeks.
Oh and by the way, I picked up the first volume of Season 2 of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. Yes Meghan I am a geek.

SOZZLE: A small pan used for carmelizing meat...

...Or A salty Dutch candy. You decide.

Games night with Tracy and Gord and Dan was fun of course. I can only imagine how it would go if we were drinking too... We might have to try that some time. In fact we may have to have a super games night here with everybody.
Tonight is our first AfterCOLA night. Dan and Meghan have their normal hetero tea date. Following that we are all having dinner at The Merchant. Hopefully will be seeing Neil and Howie there as well though Neil did mention something about no restaurants for a while. The last restaurant didn't agree with him the next day. After dinner... I have no idea what's going on. We'll have to figure that out over dinner I guess.
That's all I have for now. Off to work in a few.

Ah Starbucks... "I wish I knew how to quit you"

Well the workday flew by today. Mondays tend to do that which is a good thing to be sure. This evening we went for a walk downtown for coffee at The Goat.
Tomorrow evening is a games night with Tracy and Gord, which should be fun no doubt. Balderdash all the way.
So if any of you haven't heard, the mortgage thing didn't work out so well. Just a little too much other debt at the moment. So in light of that I have decided I really need to try and cut back a bit. I want to do my best to do this and still have a life though. I am going to start with the little things. The Goat is a cheaper evening that Starbucks. So yes I am cutting back on my Starbucks. Not quitting it altogether though. Just making it more of a treat. I want to try and cut back a bit more as well so I can do some of the things I want to do this summer with little or no guilt. In other words I want to give up some quantity for some quality. Overall though I want to reduce my debt. Can I do it? We'll see I guess. I still just want to try and do this on my own.
That's all I gotta say...

It's not that they don't like you, they just like me better...

What a weekend!
Saturday was spent fairly quiet. Watched some TV and did a bit of running around. Went to Silver Wok with Neil & Howie and Meghan & Claire. Turned out to be unfortunate for Neil, hopefully he will be feeling better soon. After dinner we headed over to Neil & Howie's place for drinks, dessert and more drinks. It was an evening well spent. After that the lesbians ditched us cuz they had to be up early or something, yeah I hear the crack of 10:30AM comes fast. So the four fags headed to The Foo for drinks and dancing, or in Howie's case a whole lot of tolerating. Anyway, a little drinking and a little dancing later the night was over. By the way, thanks John for that bit of grinding, really any time... Oh and for once it was my turn to send a drunken text message to Gord. Fun.
Sunday we headed down for Brunch. Looking forward to seeing everyone. Funny how only Meghan and Meagan showed up. Seems like the party lasted into the morning for Bryan and Ryan so they slept in. As for Neil and Howie... Seems the Chinese food took a turn for the worst for Neil and he was sick in bed all day. Hope you're feeling better soon.
The rest of Sunday was spent with Meghan doing some shopping here and there. There being Home Depot cuz really, you can't NOT go there.
So now I just want to take a moment to say to Meghan and Claire that whenever I spend time with you both I really FEEL happy. You two are the wind beneath my wings. I just FEEL so lucky to have you in my life. Remember, call me or message any time, Dan won't get jealous. :-)
So I actually feel good going into the week. Not something that usually happens. It is more normal for me to dread heading into Monday. Well, we'll see if it makes any difference to my week.
That's all for now...

A week happily over

WOW... I just read CryWolfe's Blog for Saturday, April 22, 2006. What a week. I need to do the same thing but mine is not going to be near as exciting or upbeat.
It has been since Sunday, April 16, 2006 since I have done a blog with any real content, and that one was pretty light.
So Monday nothing major happened except for one thing that upset me and threw me off for pretty much the rest of the week. It is pretty much resolved now though I have to admit it still bothers me a bit.
Tuesday was me in a grumpy mood at work for the whole day. In the evening Tracy and Gord came over for some games. TRUTH OR DARE JENGA - Not so good. The questions end up being pretty lame. I'll stick to the original, which after a couple drinks is an awesome time. CRANIUM - That game has way too much going on. Definite pass on that one. BALDERDASH - Yeah that's a winner. Need to pick that one up for the next games night with Meghan and Claire. I think it will go over big.
Wednesday... What can I say? 3 appointments and I don't think one of them was successful.
Number one. Mortgage Broker. He sounded positive but really I am not thinking that is going to go far. He suggested getting a co-signer would definitely give me a better chance but I am not too sure I want that.
Number two. Credit Union. That one went nowhere. I think Credit Unions are way too socialist for me. As odd as it sounds I feel more comfortable with a totally capitalistic bank. I know they are trying to screw me they don't hide it.
Number three. The Dentist. Yeah I went for 3 issues that I could tell I had. Missing fillings, chipped tooth, etc. Sat there for almost an hour while he worked then once I had feeling back in my tongue I realized all 3 issues were still there. Apparently he found something I didn't even know about. I am sure he was probably quite clear in what he told me he was doing but really it's not like he can point it out to me. I have no clue what's going on in there. Anyway I do have another appointment to get more done so hopefully the rest will be taken care of next time.
Wednesday also had me invading Dan and Meghan's hetero tea date. Then dinner for which Claire joined us. Then off to COLA. Then 7 of us went to Lonestar for drinks.
Thursday we can pass on for now. Other than to say there was some communication that was long overdue. Still lots more to come I think but one has to start somewhere.
Friday Dan's lovely and sweet friend Dea was in town before heading back to UK so we met her and some friends for drinks at the Queen's Pub. Dea is such a riot. She is in some ways the female version of Gord. Awesome sense of humour, very quick, very sweet, and very charming. Okay so not all that much like Gord. So anyway, that was a good time. Left there around 11PM, thought briefly about heading to The Merchant where a gang from work were hanging out but really just wanted to come home at that point. Over all it has been a very long week and I have been feeling a bit drained.
Tonight we are tentatively booked for Chinese food with Howie, Neil, Meghan and Claire. Followed by drinks at Tango perhaps. Then maybe off to The Foo as we were invited there by Bryan. Apparently everyone associated with Queens and who is a queen is going... Or something like that anyway. So we'll see what happens.
That's it for now. I'll keep y'all posted...

Miss me?

Just a quick post to let everyone know I am still alive.
Been fairly depressed lately. Over several things. Some of which will make it to my blog, some of which will not. Nothing will make it to my blog tonight however since I am going to bed now.
I will post an update soon.

Gotta love em when they are Texas-sized...

Just a quick one tonight.
Did a bit of running around today, got a haircut. Dan had Bryan install the new hard drive to go with the new Super CD ROM/DVD ROM Reader/Burner Drive. I am SO getting one too.
Went to Lonestar for drinks with Gordo and his new boyfriend. Very nice time that was. Good company, margaritas and deep fryed squid... Does it get any better. And Mr V, or just plain V as he is now referred to actually spoke. Well he did when Gord and I let him manage to get a word in.
So that's it for now other than I just want to say... Boyfriend, boyfriend, boyfriend, boyfriend, boyfriend, boyfriend, boyfriend, boyfriend...
Gordo, before you comment, you know I love ya right.

Please, not near the children...

Tonight was a good night. Tracy, Gord, Dan and I went to Denny's for dinner. It was so like old times. It was a lot of fun even if it did remind me of how much I miss them both. Tracy has her Dan and they keep pretty busy on the weekends so we don't get to see them much. Gord has the new boyfriend and a bunch of people to keep him busy. He is Mr Popular and he is, rightly so, basking in the warmth. I realized recently that work sucks for me mostly because I don't have many friends there. One left and damn you Jenn for taking holidays. Frankly I have to say that since Gord and Tracy left that building it just makes the place so much less tolerable.
Good weekend coming up I think. Bryan and Ryan coming over for dinner tomorrow night. Spending some time with Gordo and Mr V on Saturday evening. Sunday brings the possibility of a visit from Craig on his way home from visiting his folks. So another busy one but staying close to home.
So here's to my friends. I love you guys.

You say potato...

Tonight was COLA night. Talked about tension points in relationships. Every relationship has at least one. Mine has a couple to be sure but these tension points do not define the relationship. I wish our sex drives jived a bit more, he wishes I was not so dependant on my best friend. Maybe co-dependant is a better description.
I guess its how you handle these tension points that makes all the difference. Sometimes we can correct the issues that bother our partners. Sometimes the issues are beyond our control. Sometimes we choose not to correct the issue and ask our partner to accept us as we are. There is no right or wrong. Idealy we come to a compromise. Ideally one partner does not have to give up (or put up with) more than the other.
I have been sitting here thinking about what to say next. Should I go on to elaborate on some of our issues? I think I'll pass. We know what they are. We deal with them in our own way, even if in some cases that means not dealing with them. Maybe we'll learn to live with them or maybe we will deal with them later. Maybe one of us will blow up about one of them. We'll see. It's not like life would be all that fun if it was totally predictable.
That's it for now. Sorry Gordo, no drama unless you can supply me with some...

Loving the sun, can we get a little heat to go with that?

Today I really have nothing. Went to work, came home, walked to Starbucks for coffee, came home. Chatted a bit, watched TV a bit, chatted some more.
Nice day out. Very sunny but still a bit cool. Summer is coming and it better get here soon.
I will try and have a more eventful tomorrow for y'all...

IKEA and HOME DEPOT... I should be an honorary lesbian

Well today was a good day. Headed up to IKEA with Meghan and Claire. Drove home with a wardrobe in my lap. That car has a tighter little hole than a virgin boy. And by hole in the car I mean the passage from the trunk to the back seat when the seat is folded down. And by hole in a boy I mean nice sweet virgin ass. But anyway, I digress. We did manage to get all our purchases in the car and then proceeded to head downtown.
Late lunch downtown followed by a bit of shopping. Bought a little gift for Jenn and one for the young lad (who has a boyfriend). Headed home after that but the lesbians could not manage to drive past the HOME DEPOT in Ajax without stopping. Then back on the road heading home.
That was pretty much it, good day, lots of good conversation. Oh and we will be winning 6-49 tonight and opening up THE best gay club ever.
See you there...

Bestest is so a word...

There is this guy who is my best friend. He can be such a dick but I still love him. He is my bestest friend.
So I kind of reasoned out yesterday that one of the things that has had me a bit depressed lately is that I have been missing my best friend. Oh I talk to him every day but don't seem to see him more than once or twice a week lately. He came into town for a drinking binge last night but his drinking buddy was not able to make it so he just hung out here till we decided to take a walk downtown for a couple drinks ourselves.
It was good fun as always. We talked a lot. Seems he had come to the conclusion as well that part of my pissy mood was that he was not around as much. He thought it was because of the new boyfriend but it really goes back further than that. He has made a bunch of new friends and found some new interests, which is not a bad thing. He is one of the popular kids now, which is something I think he really needed. He is just acting his age now, something he has every right to do. I just can't act that age anymore, no matter that I still look 24, I am NOT 24 anymore.
So anyway, being aware of what is bothering me is a big thing. I tend to not be able to pin down the things that are bothering me as they tend so pile up together to get me into a depression. So I will deal with this one. My issue, not anyone else's.
Happy Friday...

Common Ground Latte and Natural Lube...

Last night we went to the 2006 Outwrite Launch Party hosted by Ryan and Bryan. Had a good time. Ran into many friends. The entertainment was, shall we say... Interesting. The readings were good. The Tantric Massage sounded... Disturbing. We were in line for drinks at the time so we missed seeing it, just heard it. The belly danceing was odd. Some of those girls take the "belly" part pretty seriously. I do have pictures of Miss Tyffanie up there learning the moves.
We won a bottle of Natural lube. Tried it out last night. BEST FUCKING LUBE I HAVE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF USING. Did not smell like lube. Did not taste like lube. Stays nice and slippery untill the end. Ah the wonders of hemp.
Common Ground Latte. 10:00PM. Not a good combination if one wants to sleep at all that night. Going to be an interesting day considering I am not going to be home till after 10:00PM tonight.

YO HO HO and a bottle of RUM! Can I just have a Cosmo Instead?

Well lets start by recapping the last few days since I have not been blogging near as much lately as I should be.
Going back to last Wednesday we'll start with COLA. Not a big turnout so not a long meeting. Topic was stereotypes. Not much more to say about it than that. Tea at The Goat after was fun. Was nice to see Ryan and get a chance to chat a bit with him.
Not too much noteworthy happened Thursday or Friday other than watching PIRATES OF THE CARIBEAN Friday night. A pirate's life for me for sure other than we know about me and rum. Never going to happen again.
Saturday Dan's dad was in town and we went barbeque shopping since that is what Dan decided he wanted for his Birthday from his dad. We just finished putting it together tonight.
Saturday night was a do nothing night really. Gordo stopped in for a bit before heading off on his adventures. There had been talk of grabbing some drinks at Tango before they headed out to the bar but in the end I really wasn't up to it since we had to be up early on Sunday morning.
Early to pick up Kim and head to the National Gallery of Canada for a show there. Native artist Norval Morrisseau was featured. It really was an awesome show, really wish Gordo could have come. I think he would have liked it.
Sunday evening was reserved for the highly organized surprise Birthday party for Meghan. Good times. Good crowd. Only one person asked me about my work which to me is always a good party. Poor Meghan was still under the weather, but such a trooper put up with us all for the evening.
So look out for my blog on the evening of the 19th. I have 2 appointments to look into getting a mortgage. Like I have said before, nothing like making an appointment to get rejected. I could just go to the bar for that... LOL. I am trying to be positive, or at least objective. We'll see I guess.
So that's it for now kiddies...

No Subject

Just wanted to let my loyal readers, all 3 of you, know that I am still alive and kicking. Not sure why I have not been blogging lately. Just have not had much to say I guess. Been feeling a bit depressed of late. Nothing serious, same old things. I'll get over it. Hopefully there will be more to write in the near future. If so y'all wll be the first to know.
Later kids...
