Recycling the past...

So since nothing really interesting happened today let me dredge something up from the summer of no blogs.

The 3AM border crossing on the way to Pittsburgh...

Looking back I guess I should have known that 4 guys crossing the border on their way to a furry convention are going to get pullled over for sure. At least we had the big fursuit dog head in the trunk to back us up. Well after a half an hour answering random questions we were back on our way to the land of Anthrocon. Anthrocon was more fun that I ever expected. It kind of reminded me of the Star Trek conventions I attended in my younger days except the Anthrocon attendees were much less serious. Let me tell you that you have not lived till you have seen 30 furries do The Time Warp. Ego Boost: Mikey was hit on by a "straight" boy (and a 6 foot skunk from South Carolina). Good times.

I have to say that Pittsburgh surprised me. It was so very much like Chicago but with less art. It was reasonably clean, at least the areas we were in were clean. There was lots of good architecture and some good museums, most notably The Andy Warhol Museum. There was also no tax on clothes and shoes. Gay heaven to be sure. Mikey came home with a new pair of Pumas.

I am definitely looking forward to going again next year. At least next year it doesn't happen on the same weekend as Toronto Pride.

PS: To whoever found that lost SD Card outside of The Warhol Museum. I was not defiling that teddy bear, we're just close that way.

The event of the season...

Tracy and Dan's wedding is coming up. Saturday is the big day and I am really looking forward to it. Thanks to Emma's help on Bloor St. I am going to look GOOD. I know it's suposed to be all about the bride and all that shit but seriously, I look good in a suit and the new shirt and tie are going to cap it off nicely. Add to that the fresh haircut. I can picture it now. I'd fuck me. Bring on the cougars, there are going to be some broken hearts.

Had a good weekend. Hung out with Meghan and Tim for most of it. Ate out the whole weekend. Drank a bit. Brunch this morning then work. Even work went okay. No complaints. 4 more days till the weekend. YAY!

Some people would walk through shit for a cause...

So here's some funny-ness that happened today.

There was a parade of Mounted Police going down Princess Street tonight. Lots of horses, lots of horse shit. Fast forward to about 45 minutes later when a whole whack of people marching for Take Back The Night do the same route. On foot. Thats funny. Poor planning and funny.

More book-talk

New book on the go. Finished "Running With Scissors" and am now reading "Dry" also by Augusten Burroughs. It is the third of his auto-biographical books I have read along with his novel which is also very funny shit. Only Augusten (yes we are on a first name basis now) can make rehab funny. Seriously grab one of his books and give it a read. If I like you I might even lend you one of my copies. Once I finish this one I have a couple other books I plan on picking up. Different authors, I guess it's good to branch out a bit. I'll probably blog about those later if they are worthy.

So I'll be back in Trenton on the 27th for Tracy and Dan's wedding. That should be interesting. The wedding will be a blast. Trenton will be pretty much the same as when I left I figure. Most I have done since I left has been the odd hit and run, stopping at the Hospital to see some of the old coworkers. We are staying at The Holiday Inn, the ultimate in classy.

Oh and just something to ponder: STRAP ON is NO PARTS spelled backwards. That's a little something for my lesbian readers out there.

LOL for real

So, I laughed out loud in Starbucks again. This time I was reading Augusten Burrough's "Running With Scissors" and this time people noticed. The girl accross from me looked up and a guy who was just coming in looked. He then checked out the book I was reading and gave me a knowing smile and nod. Apparently I am not the only fan.

Some good news: It looks like I am actually going to be getting a Christmas Vacation this year. At least 5 days off in a row starting with Christmas Eve. I hardly know what I am going to do with it all, other than enjoy it of course.

Cat lovers... Are you INSANE?

So 3am in the morning all I can hear is some horny cat screaming outside. What the fuck. I get horny too and you don't hear me screaming in the middle of the street.

I have never had a doubt that as cute as those little kittens can be they are most definitely spawn of the devil himself. They have no purpose on the planet other than to exude arrogance and consume. Consume anything, food, water, human life force, whatever they can get their greedy little paws on.

I love my dogs. As annoying as they can be at least they are not evil. Though I think Penny has it in her. She's no cat though.

First post in a long time. Welcome back to the stuff thats inside my head.

So I find myself at Starbucks daily now. I head down before work for an hour or so to read and social study. "Social Study" is just another term for watching guys but I also do just observe people in general. I think it keeps me sane. Its like my pack-a-day habit.

By the way if you have not read anything by Augusten Burroughs pick up one of his books. Funny as it gets while still being terrifyingly real. He's shown me the power of humour as well as confirming that everyone's mom is insane. Some clinically so, some not.
