What a motherfucking year it's been

I seriously doubt anyone even reads this thing anymore. I am so ashamed that it's been so long since my last post. Closing in on 10 months.

Chalk it up to losing my identity in a relationship that wound up teaching me a lot but ultimately breaking my heart twice. I am trying really hard now to mend the wounds and find it in my heart to not be angry and bitter. But it's hard. I'll get there, but.... it's hard.

I hope if any of the old skool peeps are still checking here for updates that everyone is great. I will try to reach out to you - and I think I'm ready to start sharing more of my world again. It's somewhat therapeutic for me.

Peace, love and hairgrease.

New Year - New Hopes

I don't even know how many people even read this thing anymore. I've been so bad about updating, I'd imagine not very many. But at any rate, I figured while I had a spare 30 minutes at work (which is highly atypical), I'd post a little update.

Work is quiet for once, which is nice and I've actually been off quite a bit over the holidays. My family was all in town for a visit which was quite nice. We got to just hang out a lot. Drank a bit, ate a lot. It was nice. I even got to spend some very good 1:1 time with my older brother and I was touched by the deeper connection we shared this visit. We have always gotten along, but as we get older, our relationship continues to deepen which is very nice. My mom was a little more relaxed than her visit last year, she had shed a few pounds, looked great, was in good spirits and seemed to just really enjoy herself moreso which was a joy to see as well.

My bro and sis-in-law bagged 12/20, my mom 12/23 and my bro and his partner 12/24, leaving me all alone to tend to my pup and their two as well. Their successful co-mingling is recent and makes it possible for us to watch the dogs for each other and also if I'm going to just hang out a bit at theirs, then I can bring Chucklet along and she gets to see some peeps and pups too. It's a win-win as far as I'm concerned.

As you might well imagine, it was a bike-y christmas for me - I got some really cool stuff all the way around, from butt butter, to really cool safety lights (Frogs), a Camelbak (<-- link), sport/cycling sunglasses (with interchangeable lenses!!), a new jersey, rad socks, etc. And I got some cabbage too, which for me is never a wrong answer.

Things with the guy are still really great as well. He's been off work this whole week and we turned a Monday cook-dinner-and-spend-the-night date into a sort of 2-day mini no-travel escape. We hung out at my brother/his partner's beautiful home, cooked, watched movies, had Christmas morning breakfast treats at my sis-in-laws' house, shopped sales a little bit and just shared the largest amount of time together continuously that we ever have to date. He brought me gifts (not necessary but so generous!!) that were sweet and thoughtful. It really felt like we were on a mini vacay together - a bit like paradise only without the beaches and sunsets. :) I enjoy him and our time together SOOOO much. And for once in my life, I'm taking it at the right speed. It still feels weird to be going "slowly" and I sometimes get squirrely about it, but I know it's right for right now. And he feels the same.

I am going down to SoCal for NYE to see my buddies Philip and Craig. That should be fun. We will chill out and also go to a party on 12/31 that a friend of theirs is having in Beaumont, CA. It'll be nice to get away just for a few days!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwaanza or whatever you celebrate. And I wish everyone a safe, healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.

Loving you bitches,
G Boogie

that goddamned diamond commercial

The whole town is talking about it. Well, I'm talking about it and the whole town's listening!

But seriously - I'm a sucker for marketing and I am in love with this song. It's so sweet and his voice is great. Check it out - newly available as a single on iTunes or check out his page in music on myspace. (<-- link)

Title : Falling In Love At a Coffee Shop
I think that possibly, maybe I'm falling for you
Yes there's a chance that I've fallen quite hard over you.
I've seen the paths that your eyes wander down
I want to come too

I think that possibly, maybe I'm falling for you

No one understands me quite like you do
Through all of the shadowy corners of me

I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop
I love so much
All of the while I never knew
I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop
I love so much
All of the while I never knew

I think that possibly, maybe I'm falling for you
Yes theres a chance that I've fallen quite hard over you.
I've seen the waters that make your eyes shine
Now I'm shining too

Because oh because
I've fallen quite hard over over you

If I didn't know you, I'd rather not know
If I couldn't have you, I'd rather be alone

I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop
I love so much
All of the while I never knew
I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop
I love so much
All of the while, I never knew

All of the while , all of the while
It was you

I'm fully mad...

at half and half. Yes, the milk product. I'm over it and its big bag of bullshit.

Let's look at a timeline, shall we?

Sat, 12/8 - purchase a pint of half and half (Lucerne brand for those of you in the know) at the SafeGay, around 2pm PST. The sell-by date is 12/20/07 (NEXT Thursday).
Fri, 12/14 - open said pint to cream up my first morning cup of coffee. This is the initial opening/use.

I ask you, I say to you, "hey..." - should I be receiving tiny bits of curdled cream floating atop my coffee from an unopened, seemingly unexpired milk product? I don't think so... BUT I DID.

This happens routinely with half and half in my life. Why? I never did anything to the milk industry. I'm a faithful small-time consumer of things creamy and delicious. Why the curdling conspiracy.

I go for fat-free or low-fat food items when I can (and where there is no huge trade off on extra sugar to replace the missing fat). But half and half in my coffee is one place where I do not. Perhaps full-fat half and half just has a really poor shelf life and I need to accept that those dates are bunk on the carton. Can't be trusted. Because fat-free half and half seems to have a half-life akin to Uranium or something. That shit never seems to turn. But I look at regular and it chunks up before my eyes.

Or is there a dirty secret about Lucerne of which I am sadly unaware?

Another generic, lame-assed post

Ugh - I can barely find the time to update my training blog 3 times per week, get to work, have a social live and still sleep. But to be honest, besides my training (there's a whole blog about it) and the holidays and the guy (yes, I guess you could say we're dating, but definitely settling into a bit of a groove and still a ton of fun!), there's not time for much else.

My bro and sis-in-law are coming into the country for the holidays at the end of next week so that will be great to see them, along with my mom who will be here as well.

How are all of you - what is everyone doing for the holidays?

And for those of you who are Jewish - Happy Hanukkah (begins tonight at sundown...)

How, I ask, can you not love this?

Gobble, Gobble

Hey Party-Peoples -

I couldn't let the tryptophan-induced holiday (<-- link) go by without a quick hello. I'm up AWFULLY early as I'm going to bang out a easy little 21-miler this a.m. with my buddy JT. You can read all about it on my training blog LET'S RIDE, CLYDE (<-- link).

But I'm staying in town, hanging out with my extended family of homos... the brother, his partner, the partner's lezzy sis, her lezzy lover (who also happens to be the same JT mentioned above and my cycling buddy/guru/mentor of sorts), and my other newest cycle buddy, Jerry Seinfeld (sorry - inside joke).

The new job has calmed down a bit - thankfully. Of course, I don't know that it could have gotten much busier.... good grief.

Things with the guy continue to progress nicely. He's an awesome fella and we have amazing chemistry. I'm having some primo moments with him and they feel right. Let's leave it at that.

Oh yeah - and if you come across the Packers @ Detroit on Thursday (on Fox, 11:30am Central), give a shout for Brett and the boys. :)

And just one more thing - I guarantee if you think about it - you are FAR more fortunate than most. I know I am. Sure, I could stand to lose 20 pounds. Sure, things might be a little more fun for me if my rent weren't so steep. Sure, a lot of little things have some wiggle room for improvement. But I have a beautiful family, world-class friends, a good job, a roof over my head, an awesome dog and cat to care for, my health, a promising new guy and hey - we've all got each other.

So how's a bout stopping a minute, and giving your sincere gratitude into the universe, or to God, or to whomever you want. But give it.

hey now...

So I've been a little quiet on this front. Truth be told, all things are really going well. But my new job, which I like quite a lot, just happens to be on a much higher pace. I did ALL of my posting before from my old job at the Big 4 accounting firm. Boy was life easy then!

At any rate, I thought I would check in and give an update.

I've been having some really good fortune lately. Or I guess if you look at it another way, I am coming into my own and am getting some of the good stuff I deserve. =)

Work is going well, my training for ALC7 is going well and I've met someone that I am getting to know a little better to see what potential lies ahead for us.

No worries, just not a lot of time to post and most of you who are my friends I manage to keep up with you day in and day out on IM.

I'll try to be better about posting - but be well!!
