Wasn't Expecting This


Mr Nasty John McCain just picked Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate!!! Who the hell was expecting this? Not me. What a smart and strategic move though on his part. This was possibly the best decision he has made during his entire campaign. Not only is she a female but also popped out a few kids. Definitely a smart move to get some bitter Hillary fans. But will it be enough. I am thinking not. But I guess only time will tell. Side note though...She is most definitely a hot cougar. She has a pretty hot son too. Maybe he will turn out to be a Mo and cause craziness during the campaign. *Fingers crossed*

Outage

For the past 3 days I have been getting trained here at my new job so that I can start making money for my company. When someone is new to a company, it is quite fair to think that while I will be the new guy for quite some time, people will want to know about me and my life. I knew people would ask if i am married or dating someone. When you are a Mo like myself, you have to ask yourself if you want to be honest with these people if you have a girlfriend or admit to them you like cock. For some people, its harder for them to make this decision, as their jobs might not have protection for GLBT people, or if they simply are too embarrassed or uncomfortable telling the truth that they like man ass. I decided that for me, its too hard to come up with lies all the time about dating someone, or discussing the bars I went to over the weekend, or wearing a fabulously cute square cut swimsuit that hugged my hips and buns like no other. :) Yes, I decided that I am too old for these types of games, and I want to feel comfortable and honest around other coworkers. During my time at my new job, it has already come up in conversation. Here is how.

Coworker "So do you have a girlfriend?"
Me "Nope"
Coworker "How about a boyfriend?
Me "Yep...you caught me."
Coworker "Seriously? Or was that a joke?"
Me "Seriously"
Coworker "Oh, I didn't expect that one. Its about time we got a gay here though, this place needs some serious redecorating."
Both of us giggle

Luckily I am protected with my company as a gay man. I feel for those who do not have that backing them. I hated growing up and hiding that I was dating someone I loved. I couldn't imagine going back to doing that same thing again. I want to put pictures of my significant other in my office and tell coworkers if I am going on a vacation with them or whatever. I do feel privileged to have the opportunity to do this in my place of employment.

Labor Day Weekend Getaway

Once I leave work tomorrow the bf and I will be driving our way up North to start our mini vacation in Erie, PA for 4 days. We are gonna make a pit stop at my parents house though to get some quality 1 hour family time in before trekking over Pymatuning Lake to eat at the best pizza place where I used to work called Covered Bridge Pizza. And if you are wondering, it is in an actual covered bridge. Holla! I resided in that restaurant serving people that had more fingers than teeth for more than 5 years. If you are ever near Pymatuning Lake, you must make that a pit stop.

After the family visit we will be staying at my friend Dan's house in Erie until Monday. We will get 3 prime days to lay on the beach and relax before our summer is dreadfully finally over. What a good time that shall be.

Also, I might be coming to NYC with a friend for a weekend on September 19-22nd!!! How exciting would that be. I have never been 21 and in NYC so I can finally hit up the bars and clubs. Cant wait!!

Quote Of The Day

"Sex isn’t about masculinity, it’s about being man enough to make someone else’s pleasure your own."

The Speech Heard Around The World

You know the one I am talking about. Hillary's speech given at the DNC last night. Wow, was that a powerful speech. She even gave a quick little shout out to us gays and how we deserve equality. Thanks Hillary! Before she actual went on stage, reporters were discussing things that she should say, things she shouldn't say, and what she should do to unite our party. Well, after she spoke and exited the stage, most Dems would say she did what she needed to do to get those swing voters and make die hard Hillary fans to realize from this point what needs to happen so that McCain does not get in office.

I dont really understand the people that say they wont vote for Obama now that Hillary isnt the Democratic nominee. Okay, lets break it down. I loved Hillary too. I was just as sad and upset when she lost to Obama. But lets face it, despite him not having experience, can he honestly do any WORSE than McCain would do. I dont think so. He might not have the most experience, but he does have a plan. And that is something to start with.

I feel as though people who are going to write in Hillary's name on their ballot come September, are simply wasting their vote. Obviously at this point there is no way she can win. She said it herself that we all need to do the right thing and support Obama so that Dems can once again sit in the White House and make better decisions. People need to stop being bitter and start being realistic. Would Hillary have made a better President? Abso.fucking.lutely! But she is not going to be. Now Dems need to unite and support Obama because why should we make it any easier for McCain to sit in the oval office.

K. I'm done.

Short Film- The Closet

I found this on another blog, and I couldn't help but have tears in my eyes during the 4 minute movie. I think this is simply one thing...Beautiful

I Am At My New Job And...

...I'm freakin bored out of my mind. The person who was supposed to train me today isnt in, and so they sat me in my cube and left me to do nothing. So I have been sitting in this cube all day and I dont know what to do with myself. Although, I did find that they dont block Facebook or Myspace so thats a plus. Overall though, I think I am really going to like what Ill be doing. The people here at work seem really great, and we get free breakfast every Wednesday morning. :)

Hopefully my trainer comes into work tomorrow though. Doing nothing gets old really quick.

NIN

On Friday the bf and I went to see Nine Inch Nails at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland Ohio. Well the concert was was absolutely amazing. They played for roughly two and a half hours and it was the most visually stunning concert I have ever been too. I have to be honest though. The highlight of my night may have been the after party that we went to at a bar called Peabodys. The bar was a dump, it was full of gothic people, but I was amazed and sickened by what I saw by the end of the night. Its hard to describe everything I had seen that night, luckily I have pictures for viewing below. When we first arrived at the bar, there was a a fetish group putting on a show called Elise's Playground. Woman were standing in their underwear with taped X's over their nipples getting whipped and flogged, and guys wearing leather gas masks and mesh shirts were getting the same treatment. This was weird but nothing prepared me for the next act. It was these two guys who had been piercing themselves with these long hooks which they attached a metal chain and using their bodies, they were basically playing tug of war with the skin and this chain. By the end of it, they were both covered in their own blood, but yet they seemed oddly satisfied. Weird.

Here are the pics from the NIN show and the after party.

Ummm...Wow

Okay, I have to say that I hate when I am reading peoples blogs and they have posts with just videos...lots of videos. BUT I just found this guy singer named Jay Brannan and I love him. He has a voice that is absolutely flawless and one of his songs actually gave me chills because not only of his voice, but the lyrics as well. So here are some of his videos.

Socially Accepted

Things have obviously been going pretty well for me as of late. And even God knows that it was about time for that to happen. Well something that I havent talked about yet is my social life as it is nowadays. Lets say 3 months ago, I hung out strictly with the bfs friends other than one friend whom I hung out with consistently. Well now, my social life couldnt be going better. I have a nice small group of friends who I hang out with now every weekend and maybe one or two days during the week. I actually see them more than I see the bf.

I am so frickin happy that I am forming a group of friends that are actually all around great guys. They are drama free and know how to have a good time. These type of people are rare. i just lost one member of the clan though. My one friend who is definitely the most outgoing of the group, left yesterday to start his new job as a Vice President of something important for a company in Hartford, CT. His presence will be deeply missed.

Long Journey

Since last November, I have been searching for a job. All of you who still read this know this fact. You have sat here through all of my complaining and bitching. However, this will hopefully all come to an end.

I found out today that I got the job I have been wanting all along. Starting on August 25th I will be the newest Buyer for a large company here in Pittsburgh. My god I thought this day would never come as I have been waiting too long for it to happen. Its the job I want, the salary I want, and most importantly, its the 8-5 job that I miss so much.

It finely seems as though, everything is finally coming together the way it should. They always say, when it rains it pours. And that couldnt be any true than with my life. I was going through the roughest patch that I have ever experienced, but I have reached that light at the end of the tunnel that I thought would never come. My relationship seems to be back to the way it should be, I got the job I have been wanting, and now everything else will fall into place in time. I need my health to get better, which it will once I am back on my medication. I want to move out of my cat pee aroma filled apartment and get a nice new pad to live in.

What a long journey this has been. I cant say i grew a ton from it, other than I know how not to react now in certain situations, but I am glad this journey is coming to an end. My new posts will hopefully be back to the same witty and funny ways that they used to be. For the few of you who still read, thanks for sticking it out through the depressing posts, and I promise to make it up to ya. ;)

Finally

My goodness I finally have restored internet back in my room. That means no more jackin off to videos on my iPhone and also means I can regularly update my blog. I have finally been having some things take a change for the better. Things with the bf are actually going very well. He got back on Friday morning, and ever since we have been having a great time with one another. Things seem like they are getting back to the way they used to be. Which makes both of us probably relieved.

Everything else in my life also seems to be getting better. A job interview, some financial help with my heaping pile of medical bills, and an overall better social life have allowed me to start to get out of my depression. I am waiting to hear back from the company I interviewed with, and if I get this job, it is going to solve a ton of problems for me. So I am obviously, keeping my fingers crossed for that.

On a completely different note, I introduced my bf to one of my many pornstar crushes, and I was surprised to find that he was just as attracted to him as I was. We seem to have different taste in men, hence why I was a little bewildered. Have you ever heard of Francois Sagat? Well this hunk-a-saurus has an interested tattoo that covers the entire top of his head and his body makes me sick with envy. What do you think?

One Week

I am still without internet so posts will continue to be sparse for a few more days. I get connection with the world wide web starting Friday! As for what has actually been going on in my life, the craziness never subsides. Everyday new problems and issues still arise. The latest inner emotional battle has to do with whom other then the bf. Things have continued to not progress, and the trip to Rehoboth has definitely taken its toll on our relationship. Everyday we try to decide whether or not we should break or continue. He has been gone since last Thursday while on vacation with his family, and will return on this Friday morning. We were both supposed to take this week and try to figure out what it is that we both want. I haven't talked to him since he left, as I told him it is up to him to call me if he feels the desire. I have been telling a few close friends that I am basically going to let him decide where this relationship goes. If he wants to still work things out I am all for it, and if he wants to call it quits, then that is what we will do. I still want to be with him, and no matter how much fun I am having without him, I always have him in the back of my head, wanting him to be there with me. Friday will be most likely an important day for the both of us, as it decides if I will be newly single or not. I do feel as though I already know where he wants this to go. I am quite certain that on Friday he will want to end things. And because of this, I have been mentally preparing myself for this to happen so that it is not as quite a big a blow when the words actually come out of his mouth.
