Update Already!!

It's been a while. Sorry. I haven't had much to write about. I've just been working. Not very interesting.

To update, Mom finally sold the house!!! Yep. It's a done deal. No more Long Island!! WOOT WOOT!!

I went to Disney with my friends, the Barney Lupus fish and Clarity. I had a great time. It was great to be together again with my chicks.
Ladies, we MUST do that again, soon!!

I still haven't figured out what I'm going to wear to Dead Kittie's wedding. We have to dress up in costume for the wedding.
Anyone have any suggestions??

My bestest friend, Deadkittie, is getting MARRIED!!! Yep, that crazy bitch is settling down. Her man is a good guy. I'm happy for her.

But the best part is that it's going to take place in Vegas!!!


I'm soooooo looking forward to it. All my friends from High school. Drunkeness, gambling, getting hitched... good times!!!!

Sweet 16

OK, Clarity, I'm updating. Even though I have nothing to say.
Let's see...
I MIGHT go to NY at the end of the month for my friend's daughter's sweet 16 party. I'll see how much the flights are and if I can get off from work.

SWEET 16... Wow. That takes me back.

I didn't have what you would call a "traditional" sweet 16 party. You know... Rented hall, gowns, d.j.- a big ol' to-do.

I had about 100 people in my back yard with a band in my garage. It was November, mind you, so it wasn't exactly nice out.
It was chaos. Kids everywhere. It was loud and out of control. I had fun, though. Good friends of mine came down from Upstate NY and Conneticut. I have good memories. The cops didn't show up, so that was a good thing.

And for my readers (both of you), tell me about your Sweet 16.

Queer As Folk prom dance

My favorie scene from Queer as folk. Brian and Justing are a couple. Brian is the tall dark haired older man and Justin is his young blonde "boyfriend". Brian SWOOOR he would never go to the prom.. But...he caves in to see his man happy. The first act of real kindness towards poor justin, only for the night to end in tragedy.
I LOVE this show. I reccomend it to anyone. It shows an honest portrayal of gay men and women. I have many straight friends who have watched it and got addicted.

My Trip to NY

My trip to Long Island sucked. Why, you ask? Well, I'll tell you.

Day 1- I fly in, get in my car, it starts overheating. Fine. I pop the hood, it's low on coolant. Ok. I go to Kmart to get some coolant, try to pop the hood... it doesn't happen. The hood latch broke. I had to go BACK to Kmart for a ratchet set to take the dashboard apart to get the damn hood open. All of this in 90 degree heat. The car BARELY makes it home.

Day 2- Drop the car off at the mechanic and dump about $200 into it. Nice.

Mind you now, there is no A/C at my mom's house. All we did was pack all day and night for a bunch of days in the humid miserable heat.

I did, however, have a good night with my old Pals from work. We went to Houlihans for dinner and drinking. It was nice to catch up and laugh for hours. I needed that.

Day 3,4,5- packing. Hot. Car still running like shit.

Day 4 was Bob's birthday. We went to the VFW to dump his ashes in the memorial. It was nice. Very respectful. I'm sure he would have appreciated it.
But then I got WAAAAAY to drunk. Not good.

Day 5- The Def Leppard concert. The real reason I came up to NY... The thing I was looking most forward to.
It rained ALL day.
The person I was supposed to go with ditched me.
I was angry.
But... Luckily my good pal Clarity and her hubby Eric took pity on me and went with me. After a long rainy ride and Eric not having a ticket, it all worked out.

You see, I only had 2 tickets. But Eric, being the wonderful man that he is, took us anyway- and made fun of Def Leppard the whole way to Jones Beach while we were listening to the CD. Clarity and I headed into the concert and left poor Eric outside the venue.
Eric tried to scalp a ticket with no luck. Finally a security guard took pity on him and gave him a ticket for free. We snuck him into our section and all was well.
I had a great time. And Eric seemed to as well. I think the best part of the show was watching Eric rock out like he was Def Leppard's biggest fan. The rain held out an all was well.
Thanks again, Clarity and Eric, for making it a great night!!

Day 6- the final day...
I packed all day until my flight. Only to get dropped off at the airport to find out I have a 2 hour delay. I sat at the airport bar and drank a few $7 beers until my flight decided to show up. I didn't get home until like 3am but it was good to be back!! Hopefully I won't have to go back again any time soon.

New York, Here I come!!

So it's less than a week until I leave sunny Florida for Shitty New York. I bumped my flight from Thursday to Tuesday so I could (hopefully) get more accomplished while I'm up there.
I have to say, I'm not looking forward to it...
It's going to be a lot of work. My Mother sold her house so I need to help her clean it out. Most of my stuff has already been cleaned out of there so I don't even have a place to sleep. It should be very interesting.
BUT... I AM looking forward to seeing my friends and my nephew. I haven't seen that little bastard since January. His mother, my sister, is a big bitch. She uses him to piss me off by not letting me see him. It's a shame. I'll figure something out. Some way, somehow, I'll track him down or maybe I'll kidnap him or something. We'll see...

I know I keep saying I'm going to write stories about my youth, and I will... Eventually... I'm just lazy.

It's been a while

Sorry I haven't checked in for a while. I've been working a lot and honestly haven't had much to write about.
Work is ok. Well, no, it's not. It's starting to piss me off. The residents are ok for the most part but some of the staff need a kick in the face. They just have NO work ethic and that's really frustrating. But other than that, it's fine.

I booked my flight for NY!!!
I'm going from June 22nd to June 25th. Just a long weekend (that's all I could get off of work). I'm going to my Def Leppard (shut up) concert and I'm going to clean out my crap out of my Mom's house- she's in the process of selling it. Hopefully I'll be able to see a few of my friends while I'm up there as well.

I know I promised more stories. I'll try to gather up some photos and post later tonight.
