Update 5/30/07

1. I bought myself a portable navigation unit last month and have been loving it every since!! Forget having to print out directions before I leave home. Everyone should have one of these things.

2. CC and I are doing quite fine. I'm still in that "i'm still not sure" stage, but then again, shit takes time and I have explained that to him. He mentioned "relationship" the other day and it prompted the "slow down" talk that I always seem to have to have with brothas. Why do brothas want to rush?

3. I finally moved out of the apartment complex from Hell. I found an 1800 sq. ft. 3br 3ba with a garage for $1150 *try to find that in NYC, Chicago or any other large city*. I have 2 roommates, but then again, I travel for work, so it's not a big deal for me. And I love the area where I live because everything I need is within a mile away!!!!!!

4. It's high time that I get my ass back in the gym. I stepped on the scale earlier today and that bastard read back 201lbs. Two hundred pounds is number that makes me open my eyes and see what my gut really looks like. The downside to losing weight is that my but is going to shrink again. I like it the way it is. But i'd rather have a flat ass and a flat stomach than to have a gut hanging over my belt. Since the gym is only .70 miles away, i'll be doing squats each day i'm at home.

5. I broke my phone *I don't even know how* 3 days after purchasing it. All I know is that I had it in my pocket and when I took it out, the screen was cracked on the inside. But I was able to order another one and everything is all good. Now I have to wear that damn holster on my hip. I hate that shit, but I love my phone.

6. I spent $300 on gas last month. Mind you that I don't have a commute like most people. Enough said!!!!!!

7. The company that I was working for went bankrupt and terminated all employees except the accounting department on April 25th. Luckily the contract company (Hilton Hotels) was able to find another company that hired us April 25th. Now I am in the process of suing the old company for violating the WARN Act of 1988. Those bastards laid us off without the required 60 day notice and now they owe us 60 days pay plus benefits. But at least I got to keep my laptop for free.

8. I went to a party with CC last weekend and 3 dudes tried to holla at me. All 3 of them were sexy as hell, but I am not trying to complicate my life by dating multiple dudes. But my question is this: where the hell were these muthafuckas when I was single? It seems like brothas are only attracted to you when you start seeing someone. But it did boost my ego, especially since I hadn't had a haircut and wasn't looking my best.

9. I've had my car for 2 years now and I still love it!!! I'm getting my windows tinted next month *gotta put it in the budget*. I think that's all i'm going to do with it, even though I still want some 19" rims on it. I think i'll keep it 2 more years and then get the next generation Maxima!!

10. I fixed my dryer today by changing out the cord. I was about to call a repairman, but I figured "I can do this on my own". The cord was $15 and it only took 15 minutes. It felt good to brush up on my "Man Skills". I think that a lot of gay men feel that they don't need to know how to do certain things such as changing a flat tire or making simple repairs. They need to get with the program.

The Wristband

I was watching some show on television last week when a character compared love to those wristbands that you get at some clubs after paying cover. She said something to the effect that the band is what let's you get back in if you have to step outside for something. She said that love was like that wristband. Once you get it from someone, you can always go back into their lives as long as you want to. Just like that wristband lets you back in the club.

Many a night *or morning* I have come home from a club with that wristband around my wrist and tried to snatch it off. I have sometimes just gone to bed with it still on because it was too hard to get off and I was too lazy to go get my scissors.

I'm wearing someone's band and he is wearing mine. The one i'm wearing is too hard to rip off and I can't find my scissors. And I think that he is in the same situation. The problem is that the club closed back in September. We are both standing in line to get into a new club, but we can't get in because we are still wearing the old wristbands.

Life Updates

1. I got a new phone on yesterday when the UPS driver delivered my T-Mobile Dash!!! I have finally joined the ranks of smartphone users. When I saw Fuzzy's at the blogger weekend, I fell in love with it. It's only been one day, but so far I am thoroughly impressed with it's functionality.

2. I got an offer for a new job on yesterday. It's for a tech support representative with a company here in Atlanta. It would involve no travel, which is great. Although it was uplifting to know that I can still impress people in an interview, after seeing the offer letter, I will have to decline this one. They can't even match what I am making now and the vacation time was 3 weeks less than what I have now. BUMP DAT!!!!

3. CC and I are at kind of a standstill because of one issue. He's all top, but i'm not all bottom. This kind of relegates him to "potential boyfriend" status as "potential partner" is now out of the question. Within the next few weeks, I expect this situation to come to and end. I don't want him to become something that he's not, and I will not become something that I am not. Why is this such a problem with gay men????????

4. My work trip to Venezuela was just that, WORK. I didn't get a chance to do anything while I was there. One of those reasons is that everything was soooo damn expensive. An example would be food. We went to Hard Rock Cafe and for 9 people, the bill was $780. And that's just food and soft drinks. An adult beverage was $13 by itself!!!!

5. I'm going to be an uncle again *I think that this makes number 31* and I am a little excited. This is my this particular brother's first child and there is a high possibility that I will be the child's god-father!!

That's all for now as not much is going on in my life!! Feel free to comment.

The Log-in

A woman was helping her husband set up his new
computer, and at the appropriate time in the process,
told him he would now need to enter apassword.
Something he would use to log-on. Her husband was in
a rather devilish mood and figured he would try for
the shock effect to bring this to his wife's
attention. So, when the computer asked him to
enter his password, he made it plainly obvious to his
wife that he was keying in: p...e...n...i...s...

His wife fell out of her chair laughing when the
computer replied***PASSWORD INVALID...........NOT

I've Given Him A Name

So the guy that I have been seeing has been given a name to be referred to on my blog. And that name is "CC" and he got it because I he's always calm and cool . He's always calm and cool about things.

Like I said when I first mentioned him, we are keeping things simple and so far things have been good. There was a time period of a few days that I considered letting things go, but I changed my perception of things and decided to stick it out.

We haven't gone on that many dates because of his weird work schedule, but that schedule ended on yesterday so the date frequency should increase. Although, I am reaching the time of year where my travel time increases.

Right now, I don't know if I see or feel the notion of "partner" about him, but he does have potential. That potential comes in the fact that he seems to be able to handle my personality and me his. That's always a good thing when it comes to dating. Potential also comes in that he wants some of the same things that I want such as a life raising children.

So all in all, CC has kept a smile on my face since March 16th and I hope that I can keep this smile.

You Don't Know Shit!!!

A stranger was seated next to a little girl on an airplane. When the plane took off and settled into its climb, the stranger turned to the little girl and said:: 'I've always found that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.'

The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to the stranger, 'OK. What would you like to talk about?'
Oh, I don't know,' said the stranger. 'How about nuclear power?' 'Yes,' she said. 'That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first: A horse, a cow and a deer all eat grass -- the same stuff. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?'

The stranger thought for a few moments,, then said: 'You know, I've never thought about that. I have no idea.'

The little girl began to open her book again, saying: 'Do you really feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know shit?'

Headed to Venezuela

Hey people,
I'm headed to Venezuela *don't trip, it's for work* for 10 days and I don't think that the hotel has very good internet service. In the event that it does, i'll post about some things when I get there.
