Hoarders

I have obviously been spending less time blogging and more time doing more of my non productive things like watching TV. As of late its been way too much TV actually. As soon as I get home from the gym everyday, I turn on the TV. Even though minutes later, Ill be in the shower and/or cooking dinner and cant see the TV, it comforts me to know that it is on. Ive been watching quite a bit of The Office reruns which reminds me of how much my job actually sucks. However, there has been a new show that has come into my life that has actually made it change for the better. This show is called Hoarders. And it is full of amazingness. Watch the preview below.



Crazy, right?! So what is the main reason I watch this? It is because it makes me clean my own place so that I never ever even come close to living in such squalor. However, it has also shown me that I do have some mini-hoarding habits. I do keep things that mean nothing to me and attach sentimental value to them, therefore it goes in a box to basically never be looked at again. I also keep things also known as junk that I tell myself maybe one day i will use it, but knowing full well I probably never will. But I keep it and store it anyways.

Now granted, I am sure everyone does this, however I can see some areas of my bedroom where I could probably just throw must of the stuff away and be just fine. I have instructed all of my friends that if they start to see it get bad in anyway shape or form that they must instruct me to throw it all away. Including all of the clothing I have that I havent worn for years which i cant seem to part with.

Thank you Hoarders for making me that much more self conscious of one more thing in my life.

24 Hours of Crap


From 4PM yesterday to 9AM this morning has pretty much been not so fun for me and I am in a bad mood because of it. Lets start from the beginning shall we?

So if some of you readers recall, last January I was being treated for Thyroid Cancer. Due to the radiation, I had to take some time off of work. However, no one told me that since I was out for as long as I was, that i had used up all my sick time.

Since this time, I have taken off 3 days due to being sick. I followed protocol, informing my boss the morning of, that I would not be coming into work that day due to being sick. Fine. Whatever. So I found out yesterday, that those 3 days that I called off sick would be deducted from my vacation days. And that the days I had scheduled off for my Christmas break, would either be deducted from my paycheck or I would have to come in and work.

I was pissed because no one told me this is what would happen. And I am now told that a week before my vacation that it will go unpaid. Well tis the season to be pissy I guess.

So that was strike 1 against me. Strike 2 occurred at the gym. This was minor, however just added to my frustration. I planned on going to the gym yesterday for my chest and tricep workout. However, the gym had different plans for me. Once I get there, literally every bench was taken as well as every other piece of equipment I wouldve used. Ok. Fine. I told myself no big deal, Ill just do a back and bicep day. I look around the room, and see that also, all the free weights I wouldve used are gone as well as all the machines are once again being used. I stand there, look around the room full of the hot muscular men, and decide, fine, I can deal with this, I will just do cardio and watch them all work out. Luckily there is one elliptical left. Finely, something is working out for me. So I get all settled in and look up at the TV, and of all things that they couldve had on the TV, the worst thing ever was one. Glenn Beck's talk show on Fox News. Kill me.

Ok its not like my life was being endangered at all or these things are all that bad, but more of annoyances. I went to bed that night saying tomorrow will be a better day. Then I woke up and get ready for my wonderful day at work. As I am about to walk out the door, I do my 1-2-3 check. Cellphone, check. Keys, check. Wallet, check. Oh shit, wait. Wallet, uncheck. Not there in my coat pocket where it should be. I frantically look around my place trying to find it. I convince myself it must have fallen out of my coat and is laying in my car. Yep, not there either. Maybe I somehow left it at work. Nope, not there either. Shit, not good. Now, my winter coat doesnt have the deepest pockets and my wallet does have a tendency to fall out of those pockets when i get out of my car. So the only other place it can be is in the parking garage of my gym in downtown Pittsburgh, which means most likely, it is no longer there. I called my gym, no trace of it. I tried to call the parking garage, but the phone just rang and rang. So I will have to check once I get there. Nothing sucks more than losing your wallet 2 weeks before Christmas when only 2 gifts have been purchased so far.

And that my friends is my 24 hours of crap.

I'm Alive!


Wow! What a nice long break I took from speaking to all you. However, after I started receiving emails from you guys asking if anything was wrong, or if I was alive, or dying, I decided I should probably stop and check in. And as life has it, I am alive and actually doing pretty well.

I have no excuse for not blogging for almost a month now. The only thing I can say is I have been lazy and havent felt the will to write anything. I dont have much new news to report on in my life even though i wish I did. I didnt get the job for the interview i had last posted about. I was slightly under qualified for the position and the interview reinforced that previous knowledge. But the search continues to find a better paying and challenging job. I have been trying to take on more roles and work at my job, however, all of those go unappreciated and unpaid.

Stay tuned folks. I have some more posts up my sleeve. I promised to post more regularly as there are some things that i would like to talk about.

Thanks for still tuning in!

Job Interview!

Due to the overall interest and passion in my current job declining, I recently started to apply for some new jobs in the Pittsburgh area. I just wanted to dip my toe in the water so to speak and see how the job market is here in the Burgh. Well after only applying for 3 jobs, I already have an interview lined up for this Thursday! I am uber excited for this opportunity because the job sounds like it will keep me challenged and it also pays almost double what I make now.

The job is in downtown Pittsburgh which is also nice instead of 10 miles outside of it where I currently work. It will be nice again to be part of the "city" crowd.

I have been lining up my recommendation letters from previous and current coworkers and have been going over the interview material which i have used in previous interviews.

Ill let ya'll know how it goes! Wish me luck!

Office Full of Bears

So as I become better friends with the guys in the office and they ask questions about my dirty lifestyle, they have picked up on some gay terminology and have been using it on an everyday basis.

For example, somehow the word "Woof" was used and i tried my best to explain what that meant to the gay community. So now as you walk around the office you hear little woofs being said by surrounding cubicles. Its very quite fun and entertaining.

Today we went over the categories of bears, otters, wolves, etc. And we assigned everyone an animal. They seem to be quite satisfied with what we chose for each of them. I think I am what they call a muscle cub. Still not certain on that one though.

What are you?

If You Could Have One Wish

Fifty People, One Question: New Orleans from Benjamin Reece on Vimeo.



If I could have one wish, I think it would be for all of society to view homosexuality as normal at heterosexuality. The idea that those sexual identities would no longer create bias or inequality in my mind inspires a better world. That would be my wish. What would be yours?

It Started with a Rainow & Ended in a Proposal

My oh my what a great weekend I had in DC! The March was absolutely wonderful and I am extremely happy I decided to attend. The weather turned out perfect for the March being in the 70s and sunny. I was there with some of my best friends and my boyfriend. I couldn't have picked better people to go with. It was so important for me to go because equality for the gay community is something I feel very passionate about. Not only do I want to be able to get married and enjoy the same rights as heterosexual married couples, but beyond that, I dont feel as though I should be discriminated against in any way because of the the person who I choose to love.

I do have some gay friends who aren't into the marching, rallying, or have even chosen not to sign a petition to ban work discrimination because they were already protected so it didnt matter to them. This lack of regard for the rest of the GLBT community sort of infuriates me. I want people to understand its not about the individual but about the community as a whole. Just because it may not affect you doesnt mean it wont affect others. Just because one gay man doesnt want to get married doesnt mean you shouldnt support those who do. This type of ideology seems so selfish and dehumanizing.

Alright, onto the details of the march. As soon as we arrived at the March we noticed everyone looking up towards the sky and as we followed suit, we all saw the bright rainbow spanning across the sky. It was bizarre because it did not rain that day and there were very few clouds in the sky. Weird phenomenon I guess.

Due to the weekend being very hectic, I had to make my sign for the march in the subway station while waiting for our train to arrive. Take a look...Semi creative, right?

I tried as much as possible to take in everything I was seeing from the gay couples, the children, the straight supporters, and even the few anti-gay protesters. There was so much hope in the estimated crowd of over 250,000 people. I would notice signs that would make my eyes get a little watery, however, there was one in particular that almost made me break down. Yep. A biracial couple who never exactly what it meant to be discriminated against. But I managed not to cry like the sensitive Mary I really am. This sign just hit me so hard because these people understand. They understand that it was them fighting for the same damn rights which people had restricted them access to using the same religious scriptures and reasons. And although its not their fight anymore, its their human compassion to show their support. I honestly think its people like this who are going to make the biggest difference in the fight for equal rights.

After marching for 2 hours and having my Steelers sign being photographed by other Steeler fans a few dozen times, we arrived at the Capital Building where we listened to heartfelt speeches given by Lady Gaga, Cynthia Nixon from Sex and the City, Dan Choi the fired military man by DADT, as well as many others. All the speeches were pretty amazing even though some were almost inaudible or seemed to drag on a little too long.

After leaving the rally to go back home to rest up a bit, i witnessed something i will never forget. I saw a young gay couple standing next to each other when i noticed one of them get down on one knee pull out a ring box from their pocket, and propose. I saw the nod of approval and they both quickly embraced each other and started crying. this was the first gay proposal I have seen in real life and sadly I wasnt quick enough to pull out my camera to get those few once in a lifetime shots. It was the perfect way to end this day. I couldnt have asked for a better experience with this march and so extremely grateful I had the chance to be apart of it.

Here is the link to the rest of my pictures from the march and rally. **My boyfriend also makes an appearance or two in these for the first time ever. See if you can spot him!

National Equality March

I'm am minutes away from leaving my place to make the 4 hour drive to DC for this weekends National Equality March. Feel free to follow my Twitter updates for pictures and what not throughout the weekend. Ill be ending my time in DC by going to see DJ Tiesto Sunday night at Club F.U.R. and no its not a leather/bear bar. Sadly. I wanted to write a more detailed blog on what this march means to me and exactly why I am doing it in the first place but frankly I just havent got the time. So perhaps next week I can find time to do that. Until then, I'll just be mysterious about it.

K. Ill be a marchin. Toodles.

Love, Peace, Donuts, and Hypocrisy

Go here for the story coming out of Pittsburgh to which I am talking about then continue reading my post. K Thanks.

So, here is my feelings on this. How can you call your business "Peace, Love, and Little Donuts" but yet not promote those very things. As in many cases though, its another Christian who spouts love, understanding, and tolerance, but cant deliver on those same principles that they preach. I will be spreading the word about around the Burgh for people not to spend their dollars there and opt for the gay owned Dozen Bakery instead. We can just take our gay money to another business. No big deal.

Protestors

Let the games and chaos begin...

There are reports that protesters have chained themselves together on the subway tracks downtown halting all trains from operating. Also, a group called Greenpeace have rappelled off of one of our many bridges with a 90 ft banner. See pics below.



G-20 Summit

The G-20 Summit has almost arrived here in Pittsburgh. The event that has had the residents of Pittsburgh attention for the past several months is one day away. The protesters have already arrived and have been setting up camps around the city waiting for their important moment when they can express their opinions and have their voices heard.

The G-20 should really be a great thing. To have leaders from around the world come together to discuss issues that effect our world SHOULD be something that people praise. And many do. However, it is when the unruly and in many cases uneducated protesters come here and create chaos and havoc amongst the host city and that is their main purpose. You do not get your voice heard when throwing bricks through a skyscrapers windows or rioting against the police. This is not the way to create change. When this happens, it merely demeans everything you are attempting to do in the first place. You take the attention off the cause and direct it to the violence.

Personally, up until this week, I havent done much research on previous G-20s. I assumed everyone was going a little overboard with the 5000 or so cops that will be descending into our city to protect it from unruly protesters. However after viewing pictures here from the previous G-20, I am now quite worried.

These pictures are a worst case scenario. They are also scary. One can hope things dont get out of control and everyone can say what they need to say peacefully and go home. Chances are though, that this probably will not happen. Pittsburgh is already seeing its unruly protesters. I can only imagine them getting worse.

Most of Pittsburgh will be completely shut down for the next 3 days. Most workers who work downtown have these days off of work or will be working from home. I will be one of those people who will be parked out on my couch with my laptop doing work watching Ellen on TV. However, because I live only a few blocks from downtown Pittsburgh, I will be walking down there on my lunch break to take pictures of the action. If I get any good shots I will be sure to post them here.

If anyone is interested in keeping updated with the happenings sorrounding the G-20 in Pittsburgh this will be a good place to stay up to date.

Takin a Breather

Wow, work has been kickin my ass so I apologize for not posting anything significant for a while. So lets get right into it.

NYC was amazing!

I may have been a little selfish during this mini vacation by basically making the plans for the group for our days there, however this was my first vacation where I actually got to do what I wanted to do without someone else making the plans for me. There was some grumbling throughout the trip with our wonderful and handsome hostess about going to certain places like the club Pacha, or going to tourist ridden areas such as Times Square, or Central Park, but overall I think he even managed to have a good time when he decided to divert his eyes and fingers from his Blackberry. Well hopefully he at least semi enjoyed himself.

We had only one problem during the trip. It had to do with the show Wicked. You see, I am a Buyer at my job, and one of my suppliers had offered to buy me and my friends tickets to go see the show. He called me a few days before my trip to confirm they were purchased and that everything will be at theater and under my name. However, after arriving and standing in line to pick them up, what I feared most happened. No tickets were there. Not under my name, my suppliers name, neither of our companies names. So basically we were screwed. We were lookin all pretty with no where to go. A queen’s biggest nightmare. But luckily the bar Therapy was right around the corner, so we dipped in for a drink and headed out shortly there afterwards.

The NYC Eagle was exactly what I had expected it to be. Dark, a little dirty, filled with bears. And I loved it. The music was good although there was no dancing, the porn on the TVs were hot, and the beers were somewhat cheap. I hung out the entire time with my two older bear friends whom celebrated their 11 year anniversary a few days prior. John and Miff reside on the tip of Staten Island and make their weekly trip to the Eagle on Sundays. They gave us the grand tour of the building, even circling me around the 2nd floor pool table where everyone was either jacking off, getting blowjobs, or getting fucked. It was quite the site to see. We kept mostly to ourselves though on the roof in the corner where we could actually hold a conversation without having to scream over all the woofiness. I cant wait to go back.

Also I have to add that before we went to the Eagle, the bf and I made a pit stop at the Gym Bar where we ran into 2 bears who I had seen on Logo’s Documentary called Bear Run. Since I had just seen it a few days before that I had their faces still engraved in my memory so when I saw them in the bar, we approached them and struck up conversation with Michael and Louie from the movie. They were very gracious and we ended up talking to them for almost an hour. So that sort of made my night. We then had an amazing dinner at a restaurant in Chelsea called The Cafeteria which may have been made famous by Sex and the City.

I wont dive into everything I did as most would be quite boring to relay, but all in all, I left very satisfied and very tired. I danced for a total probably 13 to 14 hours over the course of my trip and I could’ve kept on going if it wasn’t for my friends who just couldn’t seem to keep up. We also walked more than I ever want to remember. I am not a huge walking fan.

I still haven’t even looked at any of the photos that I took during my trip but once I get around to it, I will post them on my Flickr page.

Back Home

Ive been crazy busy at work since I have got back from NYC so cant say much now. But I had an amazing time there. Pictures and some videos to come. For now I will leave you with my favorite DJ set at the Electric Zoo Festival. Benny Benassi killed it! Here is a sample below. Also a fun song by Deadmau5.

NYC Here I Come!

Im packing my bags, cuttin my hairs, and doing laundry tonight, because I leave for NYC tomorrow! I catch my plane at 6 and land in JFK at 8. We still dont know what are plans are going to be exactly during the trip other than we want to go out every night and do the touristy type things. Here is our itinerary so far:

Thursday Night: Possibly go to Cielo, Pacha, or random gay bar.
*Where is a good place to go on a Thursday night?

Friday: Touristy stuff during the day. Then going to see Wicked, then off to another bar.
*Anyone know a good place for a Friday night?

Saturday: Electric Zoo Festival all day

Sunday: Touristy stuff, trying on leather gear, NYC Eagle at night.

Monday: More touristy stuff.

Sounds sort of fun, right?!

Song of the Second

David Guetta: One Love

I recently got a copy of the new David Guetta album, and honestly, its amazing. It completely crosses over pop with electronic and techno music. I really hope top 40 radio picks up on most of these songs as they will definitely be chart toppers. In Pittsburgh, there is not much if any House or electronic music played on the radio, so it will be exciting if some of these get played. I tried to find a playlist somewhere on the net where you can listen to the songs, but cannot find one. Youtube em if you wish to listen.

Songs you must listen to off the album:

1. When Love Takes Over feat. Kelly Rowland
2. Sexy Bitch feat. Akon
3. On The Dancefloor feat. Will.I.Am & APL
4. Sound of Letting Go feat. Chris Willis
5. I Wanna Be Crazy feat. Will.I.Am
6. Toy Friend feat. Wynter
7. If We Ever

Random Thoughts of the Day

Someone forwarded this to me this morning at work. Thought it was extremely witty. Everyone must be able to relate to at least 20 of these.


1. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

2. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

3. Lol has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say".

4. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

5. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up to prevent a d*ck from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!

6. There is a great need for sarcasm font.

7. I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks when they've invented the lighter?

8. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is..

9. I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle, then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.

10. It should probably be called Unplanned Parenthood.

11. Bad decisions make good stories.

12. More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

13. That's enough, Nickelback.

14. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

15. Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the f*ck was going on when I first saw it.

16. I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting 90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone's laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the only one who really, really gets it.

17. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

18. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

19. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

20. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.

21. A recent study has shown that playing beer pong contributes to the spread of mono and the flu. Yeah, if you suck at it.

22. Was learning cursive really necessary?

23. Whenever I'm Facebook stalking someone and I find out that their profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got the Red Ryder BB gun that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don't mind if I do!

24. Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be a problem....

25. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you've made up your mind that you just aren't doing anything productive for the rest of the day.

26. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't want to have to restart my collection.

27. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

28. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this ever.

29. I hate being the one with the remote in a room full of people watching TV. There's so much pressure. 'I love this show, but will they judge me if I keep it on? I bet everyone is wishing we weren't watching this. It's only a matter of time before they all get up and leave the room. Will we still be friends after this?'

30. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Dammit!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?

31. When I meet a new guy, I'm terrified of mentioning something he hasn't already told me but that I have learned from some light internet stalking.

32. Why is a school zone 20 mph? That seems like the optimal cruising speed for pedophiles...

33. MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

34. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

35. I would like to officially coin the phrase 'catching the swine flu' to be used as a way to make fun of a friend for hooking up with an overweight woman. Example: "Dave caught the swine flu last night."

36. I think that if, years down the road when I'm trying to have a kid, I find out that I'm sterile, most of my disappointment will stem from the fact that I was not aware of my condition in college.

37. Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn't know what do to with it.

38. It really pisses me off when I want to read a story on CNN.com and the link takes me to a video instead of text.

39. I wonder if cops ever get pi$$ed off at the fact that everyone they drive behind obeys the speed limit.

40. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

41. The other night I ordered takeout, and when I looked in the bag, saw they had included four sets of plastic silverware. In other words, someone at the restaurant packed my order, took a second to think about it, and then estimated that there must be at least four people eating to require such a large amount of food. Too bad I was eating by myself. There's nothing like being made to feel like a fat bastard before dinner.

New Imogen Heap!!!

Capitalism

The newest film from Michael Moore...

Im excited!

Gross

Last night I decided to do some deep cleaning in and around the apartment. It really needed done and i had nothing better to do so I thought, why not. However, during my cleaning, I came across something no one ever wants to fine. And no I am not talking about a boyfriends skidmarked underwear. You know what I found...

Mice poop.

Yeah. And lots if it. I found lots of it in my cabinets under my kitchen sink. They appear to be living underneath the cabinets actually. I also found it in the corners of my living room and on the window sills. This totally freaks me out. The thought of these gross little creatures running around in my apt is not something I enjoy thinking about. Luckily I dont think they have been able to get into my bedroom because of the way my steps are built to get into my lofted bedroom.

So as they are detained to the downstairs that relieves some anxiety. We alerted our landlord of the situation and hope they can exterminate the little bastards quickly. I just dont want to see any dead mice in any sort of trap. I think poison mice pellets are going to be used, but I just dont want the mice to die and then decay under my cabinets.

I think maybe a cat maybe in order. :)

NYC Checklist

Ok, so its a little over two weeks before I come to NYC for 5 days. We have some ideas of what we want to do and where we want to go out. However, I want some insight into what things I should definitely check out and some bars/clubs that I should go to. Any good restaurants anyone would recommend or where to get the best NYC pizza? Come on people, plan my mini stay in the Big Apple.

As of right now, all I know we are doing is going to the Electric Zoo Festival all day Saturday and going to the NYC Eagle on Sunday. The rest of our days are pretty much open.

Your help is very much appreciated.

Texts From Last Night

if you havent had the privilege of visiting www.textsfromlastnight.com I recommend you go there now and provide yoruself hours worth of humor. As a sample of the fun that could be had, check out some of the "texts" that I found extremely worthy of mentioning.

(715): He lasted like 30 seconds. With a condom. I just expected more from the president of a frat.

(212): I'm in a subway station watching a tranny do her makeup. This is like watching a unicorn giving birth. *My personal favorite text

(904): When I asked if she spit or swallow she replied "I never learned how to spit"

(407): my sister just canceled her nose job because she thought it would hurt too much
(1-407): It'll hurt less than being alone

(925): we'll penetrate his innocence with our dicks

(508): he was uncircumcised...I HAVE NOT YET REACHED THAT SKILL LEVEL OF DICK

(410): In the airport and just saw a little boy put his head in his mother's crotch... I guess he took a whiff because he backed up and said loudly, "mommy your pee-pee is stinky!"

(503): At some point I made a semi-conscious decision that i was okay with sleeping in my own vomit.

(810): Is licking assholes a new fad or something?

(253): i told him he had the best dick i've ever seen. then supposedly i kept repeating "peter piper picked the perfect penis"

World's Best Restaurant

Are you curious to see what what the 30 course meal at the worlds #1 rated restaurant looks like? Yeah so was I. The price of this so called meal is said to be around $250-$300 a person. I actually didnt think was too bad considering. The meal takes roughly 3 hours to get through and it can take years to get a reservation. The restaurant is called El Bulli in Spain. Take a look at the page below to see the most crazy meal.

Maybe the Casino Isnt for Me

Last night I traveled to the newest attraction in Pittsburgh. The brand new Rivers Casino. It is basically right around the corner from my place and overlooks the city of Pittsburgh and the 3 rivers. It had its grand opening this past Sunday so we wanted to check it out.

I didnt want to go. It was already 10:30 when we arrived and I wasnt feeling very well and was extremely tired. But I had no choice as I wasnt the driver. We walked around the casino and did the typical ooos and ahhhhs looking at all the shiny new slots and bars. Out of 5 of us, only the bf and I wanted to spend a little money and test out our luck. So I found a fun looking slot machine and parked my ass in it. I generally only like to play the nickel slots as I dont have much money to spend on this type of stuff. Well this machine was all fucked up and i couldnt figure out how to really work it so after I lost half of my money on it within the first 2 minutes I decided to pack up and park my ass at another slot machine. Mind you, while this was happening, my bf decided to spend $20 at the casino, and had almost already doubled his money.

We both found new slot machines and started playing again. Once again with 2 minutes all my money was gone. And yes, once again, by this time, the bf somehow already made almost $50. Clearly, I wasnt as enthused as he. But somehow he has luck on his side at these places whereas I dont ever seem to have the lucky roll of the dice.

I doubt I will be back there soon.

Song of the Second

Detroit...The City of Urban Blight

I made it back alive. I am still in awe of this. For the pictures I took of the Central Train Depot click here and here

There is much to say about this city and my experience there so I am not sure where to start. So let me just break it down with an overall assessment. The city and the neighborhoods that surround it are in such disarray that at times I thought I was in a third world country. We could drive for miles and see more abandoned buildings than ones that were occupied. And the ones that were occupied were in such poor condition that they should be considered condemned. I am shocked that a city has let its surrounding neighborhoods fall so easily.

When most people travel to Detroit, I am assuming it is to watch their hockey team, the Red Wings, or to visit the MGM Grand Casino and Hotel, or to attend the Detroit International Auto Show. These people may not ever drive by the areas that have been overtaken by gangs and homeless people. However, these were in fact the areas that we were basically seeking out. We didn’t know that at the time though. We knew the buildings we wanted to visit, but not the neighborhoods that had once possibly flourished around them. So on the second day of our trip when we visited 10+ buildings, we were a bit scared that this trip may be our last. Shockingly enough, when driving on these streets, we saw not one police officer patrolling the streets. Not one. It seems as though the city itself has probably thrown its hands in the air and given up on the people in these neighborhoods and have let them fend for themselves. I am still trying to wrap my head around the thought of this trying to fully understand it.

Ok, I have touched on that aspect of Detroit. Lets try another.

The Gay Scene.

I cant say too much about this as we only did go to one gay club called Backstreet. It was actually a really nice club on the inside. The d├ęcor was somewhat chic, drinks were moderately cheap, the music was good, and the sound system was above average. So all in all a nice place. But as always, not everything is perfect. First of all, it was in an actual strip mall. On one side of the club was a Sally Beauty Supply. Which is quite fitting I guess for the queens looking for that perfect hair color. On the other, a Men’s Big N Tall clothing store. This could be fitting however the club itself was filled to the rim with twinks and skinny old guys. So certainly the store wasn’t going after its neighboring clientele. I would suggest perhaps and A&F or an all you can eat buffet. These bitches needed to eat something. To touch more briefly on these gays, they cant dress for shit. I saw so many popped collars I lost count. I also noticed that sandals apparently are the footwear of the moment there. Or maybe everyone just got back from the beach. I couldn’t tell. Perhaps on the way in to the bar they made a quick stop at the Sallys next door, because everyone’s hair was either blow dried out and teased or bleached. It was just…weird…and uncalled for. But as I kept saying all weekend, only in Detroit. I don’t want to sound pretentious but it may have been possibly one of the most unattractive crowds I have seen in a while. I saw next to no muscle guys, no cute bearish men, nothing. Twinks and skinny old guys, that’s it. Apparently the other white meat which I prefer must hang out somewhere else.

Moving on, lets talk about the real reason I was in Detroit…to photograph buildings. All in all I accomplished my goal. I actually only went inside one building out the ones we visited, but luckily, the one I went in was the grand daddy of them all, the Central Michigan Depot Train Station. The other buildings were either completely boarded up with no access points, or were in areas where we wouldn’t dare step out of the car because we actually wanted to survive this trip. So I will let some of my pictures below speak for themselves. Here are just a few of the hundreds I took. I still need to load them onto my computer and edit them accordingly. Once that is done I will post the link so you can view the rest.

Put Your Hands Up for Detroit

After work today, two friends of mine and I will make our way to Detroit. I have never been there, and generally I wouldnt ever really want to go there as it doesnt have the best reputation for being a safe or fun city. However, for artistic reasons, we will be there photographing buildings for fun. Click here for what we will be photographing.

It will be nice to get out of Pittsburgh again for a few days. Cant wait to show ya'll my pictures!

FYI. Did you know techno music originated in Detroit? Is that that a fun little fact.

Something to Think About

I came across this quote from another blog and found it very much worth mentioning on my blog here thingy.

"I’ve just had a bit of time to think and reflect, and I came to realize that up to this point, I’ve actually lived the life that I wanted. and that’s what makes it perfect. That makes me happy."

Have you been living the life that you want?

Mass Shooting In Pittsburgh

Fucking crazy....
http://www.thepittsburghchannel.com/news/20283352/detail.html


---------------------------------------
A shooting at an LA Fitness gym outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, killed five people and wounded as many as 15 on tonight.


Authorities at the scene of a shooting at an LA Fitness gym.

The shooter is among the fatalities, said Gary Vituccio, manager of Collier Township.

Allegheny General Hospital reported receiving two wounded patients at its trauma center, Mercy Hospital had six and St. Clair had one. No other details were immediately available.

Perry Calabro of nearby Bridgeville said he was between racquetball games at the gym when he suddenly heard screaming and multiple gunshots. He said he ran out and didn't see the gunman or others.

Witnesses told CNN affiliate WTAE that a man unrecognized by the gym's staff shot people in a Latin dance class.

A witness identified as Nicole told WTAE that about 30 women were in the class when "a middle-aged white male walked into the class. He had a big gym bag."

"He looked out of place in a class full of women," according to the witness, who told WTAE the man put down the bag, turned off the lights and opened fire.
-------------------------------------------------------------

Where Did It Go?

For those of you who follow this blog, since the beginning of this year, I have been trying to pack on some extra muscle and was going to the gym 4-5 days a week. Well those times are now gone and I am sad that throughout the entire month of July, I went to the gym a whopping 2 times. So clearly, my body has already started to see some major changes.

Basically, most things on my body shrunk. My arm, neck, shoulders, back, chest, and legs are a much smaller version of their former self. However, two things have gotten bigger. One being my ass, which isnt always a bad thing. The other being my stomach. I am starting to form that sexy malnourished look which can be easily confused with pregnancy. I swear if I didnt have a beard, people would ask me how far along I was. Sad really.

Now that the beach has come and gone, my determination to go to the gym so frequently has diminished. I just no longer feel like going. I would much rather go home, take a nice nap and eat some cookie dough ice cream. I tell myself that is more beneficial for my health than going to the dirty old gym.

Hopefully I can drag myself to gym at least a few times this week. Starting tomorrow of course. I only have a little wee bit of ice cream left, so I have to eat it before it goes bad. Well, thats my excuse for today anyways.

Greetings From My Workplace

Just wanted to say hello ;)

Songs of the Second

Why I Love the Gaga

The Divorce Video

Not What is Used to Be


This past Saturday 3 friends and I made the 15 minute trip to one of Pittsburgh's claims to fame...Kennywood!

Those who are amusement park connoisseurs should definitely know what Kennywood is. It is one of Americas oldest amusement parks. And is almost always placed in the top 10 parks in the country. The park isnt huge but for some Pittsburghers like myself, I would rather go here than to lets say Cedar Point. Which is known for having the most roller coasters than any other park in the world.

I have mentioned Kennywood a few times on my blog before and have noted that the nostalgia of the park due to going multiple times every summer growing up is what keeps me going back. I cant say much has changed at the park since I began going so many years ago, and I think thats why i like it. I love going there seeing the same rides upon entering the park, hearing the familiar music flowing out of the large Candy Shop near the entrance/exit, and smelling the cotton candy vendors that can be seen every few hundred feet.

I may not get the little butterflies in my stomach I once did when I was child as my family would try to find the best parking spot, and in fact instead the only thing I feel in my stomach now when I go there is usually motion sickness as my body is letting me know that i wont be able to ride roller coasters for much longer. My body has grown to be pretty lame. I mean I cant even ride the god damn Merry-Go-Round without getting sick.

But I am just as happy walking with whomever i am there with reliving old memories and watching the kids who do in fact get those butterflies knowing that they are the happiest little kids on the planet just as I once was.

As they say here in the Burgh, Kennywood's Open!!!

Missed It

Even though I was trying to keep track of a certain two things so that i could mention it on this here blog thingy, like most things, they both slipped my mind.

First, roughly 6 posts ago, I reached my 400th post! Thats pretty damn good and that is alot of writing people!

I also forgot to mention that on July 18th, 2009, it was my 2 year blog anniversary. Thats 730 days where I at least though about writing in my blog. Even though only 406 posts have been written, I want to thank those of you who have been reading from the very beginning, listening to me bitch, vent, brag, and checking out my music choices. I also want to thank those who came in somewhere along the ride and decided to stick around to see what else I had to say. Its always nice to know someone is out there listening.

You all rock. Keep on readin and keep livin the dream peeps! I do it for you guys. Well and me too. I will leave you with my current Song of the Second. Check it out.

Peace

NYC Trip!

Looks like I will be NYC bound for a few days over Labor Day weekend! The bf and I will be coming to attend the Electric Zoo Festival. This is an electronic music festival in Randall Island Park. More importantly, it will only be my second time coming to NYC ever! The first time was a long time ago when I was only 18 so I was never able to REALLY experience the city.

I am thrilled to check out NYC nightlife. As Pittsburgh's gay scene has started to vanish into thin air, it will be great to go to a real city.

The Evolution of Woof

A long time ago, a burly hairy fella decided that because of his masculine and manliness characteristics, that he would associate himself with the term "Bear". Somewhere amongst his lifetime or perhaps by another Bear that had followed in his footsteps, started using a word that I still cannot figure out if it is being used as a noun, verb, or adjective. This word is "Woof". Some of you homosexuals possibly may have heard this being thrown around at your local grocery store, in pornographic videos featuring said bears, or even at the near by florist where I hear many of these bears can be found.

I am not certain how the word Woof ever came about in the bear community, as woof is mostly associated with dogs. Perhaps during a hot S&M session where a dominant daddy was calling his sub a dirty dog or something and the sub responded by woofing like a dog. And then it just caught on during orgies and sex clubs. Who knows. We can all speculate and create our own fun scenarios.

I haven't necessarily partaken much in using the word woof, unless surrounded by bears where the word is thrown around much more loosely than in an everyday setting. I have come fond of the term though, since sprouting my affection for a nice muscle bear. However, during my recent vacation to Rehoboth Beach, I met someone who i had seen around Pittsburgh before, but had since moved away to NYC. This person, is by my terms a young bear coming into his own or at least would fit into the cub category. He is pictured in some of my photos from the beach looking snazzy with his sexy beard wearing a blue tank top. And yes boys, he is single.

Anyways, he possibly created the next step or evolution with the word woof. We see everyday words being shortened due to mouth laziness. We cut off unnecessary syllables and letters that we feel just dont need to be there. Well, young Steven has done just that, and has transformed Woof into Ooof. Well you know because the 'wah-oof' was just too much to handle. So now simply and elegantly stated 'ooof' is the next step in the woof evolution.

When the term is being used, I was advised it must be said in a very low almost grizzly and sexy way. Perhaps a small amount of flem in the back of the throat can help achieve an even better sounding Ooof. Go ahead try it.

And repeat.

One more.

See! Sounds better than Woof. As soon as I heard Steven say the word I knew I witnessed something magical. That i was in the presence of something bigger than life. I explained to young Steven that this may start a movement but I will give him credit for being this movements leader. I will just take credit for putting it out there in the world and being the spokesperson for it.

So say it with me bears and bear affectionados, Ooooof!

Back from the Beach!


Rehoboth Beach was amazing! The weather was perfect, the men were hot, there was relatively no drama, and I didnt get horribly burned. What more could a guy ask for?!

I dont have any amazing stories to tell sadly. Everything basically went as planned. I went to the beach everyday! I went to the bars every night! And ate unhealthy every damn day too. I even managed to go to the gym...once. But once is better than nothin.

I will go into some more details during the next few days. But here are some pictures to get started. Enjoy!

Finally!!!

I am off of work today, which is quite nice. Although, my day will be spent packing for my week vacation at Rehoboth Beach and cleaning my loft so I dont come back to a mess. I am so frickin excited though that i will be at the beach tomorrow. I am however, not looking forward to the drive there. It is roughly a 6 hour drive, however, with traffic, and it being the 4th, I know it is going to turn into an 8 or 9 hour drive. Not fun!

So because of my vacation, my blogging will be at a minimum after this until next weekend. I am sure i will have plenty of pictures to share and stories.

Til then, Happy 4th of July America, and have a great weekend and week to everyone else!

Life Lessons

"Go more places. Throw bigger parties. Love each other harder."
-Joe.My.God

Sporty Spice


This past weekend I was invited to meet up with Pittsburgh's Gay volleyball league and play with them by a friend of mine. I was quite excited about this because back when I was in high school I played on an intramural team and was pretty damn good. However, that was in fact the last time I played. So I was a little nervous about how well I was going to do. I basically forgot all the rules, the bump-set-spike routine, where I should be standing at certain times, or which way I should be facing, etc. However I did remember how to get it over the net, and so I was impressed that I was still able to do that. A few games in, I started to get my groove back. And I was complimented on how well I actually did and was asked to join their league in the fall which i think I am going to do.

I also saw a flyer about a gay men's flag football league this past weekend. This also sparked my interest. Back when I was in school, I was way to skinny to ever play real football, and since i was working almost 30 hour weeks to help support my parents, sports were never really an option for me. However, I was always pretty good when playing for fun or during gym class. I have since bulked up a bit, and can finally hold my own. So I am thinking about going to a game to see how much i actually like it. There is also some potential to look at some hot muscle bears. So thats always a plus.

I never considered myself a jock, well mostly because like I said, I didnt play any real sports. No one in my family played or even watched sports so it was never something I really felt strongly about. However, now that I am a little older, the idea of playing sounds exciting. Maybe I will become a jock afterall. I always did want to hear, "Shower Up boys!"

Hiatus

Geez Loeeeez, I finally found a damn minute to write on this here blog. I have been super duper busy as of late doing who knows what, so I havent had much time to form a thought long enough to write a post. So whats been occupying my time?

Well I took my new(er) car for a quick checkup and was told that somehow it has a crack in its radiator and that I shouldnt drive it. Luckily its under warranty so I dont have to pay that sucker. And you know what they gave me as a loaner? Take a look. So lets just say I wasnt complaining. I am "stuck" with this car for a few more days until everything is all fixed. I definitely let the dealership know to take their time on fixing my car.

I have also been spending my weekends still at Sandcastle, where i did attempt to take a few snapshots of some shirtless hotties, but ended up only taking pictures of people with 3 teeth and sagging asses. Hot.

So that mixed in with a death of a family member and working my ass off at work, has left me with not much time to blog. I cant promise that I will be blogging a ton this month, as work is going to continue to get busier for me, as well as my extremely needed vacation in 2 weeks to Rehoboth Beach. But I wont forget about ya'll. Just dont expect daily posts and rants.

Peace!

Happy 2nd!

First things first, I had an amazing Birthday/Pride weekend here in Pittsburgh. I couldn't have asked for a better time while being surrounded by the people I care about most. I have some pictures, not many though, that I took on my iPhone. I have yet to upload them to my computer so all of you can view them. Give me another day or two.

Today however, marks another milestone in my life. Yes, today is the 2 year anniversary for the bf and I. Its crazy to think its only been 2 years as I feel as though I have been with him for several more. All of you loyal readers know that this past year has definitely been a rough one for the hubster and I, but each relationship will be tested.

This road was by no means easy, but by all means worth it. I get to go home everyday and see the guy puts a smile on my face.*Most of the time* I am extremely lucky to have found someone who is willing to put up with me and sometimes even laugh at my stupid jokes and weirdness. I am so grateful to have him in my life and to have met him when I did.

Since we are going on vacation in in less than 3 weeks and because I am broke we are opting to not buy gifts to mark the occasion. We are however going to our favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh, Soba. Hopefully followed by some hot sweaty man love.

And I will leave you with that loyal reader. :)

Gay Pride/Birthday Weekend

As some of you know, tomorrow is Pittsburgh's Gay Pride in the Streets event as well as my birthday. Which the two things couldnt go better hand in hand.

For tomorrow, I am very excited as the weather is supposed to be beautiful at 75 degrees. My friends and I will be spending the first half of our day at Sandcastle gawking at the hot bodied straight men who we all assume are questioning their sexuality or at least that day's swimsuit selection. For example:

Closeted Straight Male to his "Girlfriend/Beard": Does this pair of swim shorts make me look fat?

Girlfriend/Beard: Umm, no. I dont think so.

Closeted Straight Male: Fabulous. Er, I mean, good.

So as I said, we will spend our early afternoon making fun of these guys. And then 16 of my closest friends will gather at Houlihanns in Pittsburgh's famous Station Square for some good grub and tall Long Islands and Beers. I hope to leave the restaurant nice and tipsy before arriving back to my loft where we will partake in some heavy drinking until we are ready to dance our butts off for the next several hours downtown at the Pride Event.

I simply cannot wait! And to reuse the photograph that I found from last years pride, I edited it to the best of my ability. i didnt dare find another one, because this one is just too hot.

Happy pride Homos!!

Birthday Celebration Day 1

Here are the remains from my amazing yellow cake, vanilla icing, with fresh strawberry filling, birthday cake that I received from my coworkers today. It was quite possibly the most delisssh cake eva!I will continue my celebrating tonight by cleaning my apt for the big day on Saturday.

Pittsburgh is #1...Again!

Yep, this great city has been ranked the most livable city in the USA. *Brushes off shoulder

---------------------------------------------------------
Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato was calling -- no, crowing -- from his cell phone, in full, gleeful, salesman-for-the-region mode, ticking off the number of recent surveys declaring Pittsburgh the nation's most livable city (four or five); the number of front-page New York Times stories about Pittsburgh in the past three months (two) and the value of such publicity to the Pittsburgh area (priceless).

Given that abundance of good publicity, the news that Pittsburgh once again is the most livable city in the United States -- and 29th worldwide -- in a 2009 survey by British magazine The Economist was "great news, but not a surprise," Mr. Onorato said.

"This is now the fourth or fifth independent survey from outside the region talking up the Pittsburgh metro region. You have the stories in The New York Times, the president picks us to host the G-20 summit, now you have this magazine, plus others over the years. It's amazing."

The Economist's ranking is just one of many kudos Pittsburgh has earned recently: In 2007 it was rated as "America's Most Livable City" by Places Rated Almanac, and in January Forbes Magazine cited it as the sixth best city in "Ten Cities For Job Growth In 2009."

Apple

Well today Apple will be deputing its new products and software at the Worldwide Developers Conference! I am quite excited to see what the new iPhone software will be capable of doing to my current iPhone. I hear rumors of cut/paste and video features which i find to be very thrilling. The conference is going on right now and so far they have only discussed the Mac Book and Safari 4. If you want to keep updated yourself, check out www.gizmodo.com for the up to date action.

Your First Look...

OK, so until today, I have only ever talked about my goals in regards to getting more fit and lean. Several people have asked for some progress pics and I have hesitated for several reasons. However, during a recent trip to my buddy's house for a grill out, I decided to try on some of his "leather goods" for shits and giggles.

Now some of you may have figured out that I do sort of have thing for nice hairy chested muscle men in some leather. I find that whole leather scene very intriguing even though I havent exactly participated in it at all myself. So nonetheless, here is my one picture that was taken that I approved of for all of you to see.

Now, dont be mean in the comments. I am too fragile. :)

Sunny Weekend

Well the weekend is sadly over and I am back in my cubicle looking at my endless stream of purchase orders, emails, and phone calls. Yes, it is exhilarating as it sounds. I guess it harbors just the right amount of excitement to keep me barely awake on this lovely Monday morning.

I have nothing new to report as my weekend was pretty low key. I spent both of my days lounging in the sun at Pittsburgh's water park Sandcastle. My friends and I buy a season pass and we spend our weekends here, soaking up the sun and the nice eye candy. I went both Saturday and Sunday as it was the parks opening and was greeted with amazing sunny weather and perfect temperatures.

I was also introduced to the amazing invention of sun tan lotion spray. I dont think I could ever use the regular lotion that you apply with your hands. Despite using SPF 30 on both days, I still managed to burn a smidge. I think the top of my head got the worst of it though. And yes, I did apply sun tan protection there too. Cause if there is one thing I've learned, its that you always use protection. ;)

The water was a bit cold as the weather last week wasn't exactly exceptional so the sun didnt get to warm the water all that much, but we dipped our little toes in the water a few times just to cool down for a minute or two. Hopefully, the water will warm up more just in time for our next visit on Saturday.

I did realize one thing though. My body, is uh, well definitely not in the shape i want it to be in. Being at the water park watching the near flawless bodies walk all around me, definitely gave me the small kick in the ass to work 10x harder in the gym. I've actually reached my goal weight last week of 165. However, the weight is not in the areas that i want it. Too much of it went to my stomach in the form of fat, instead of going to my arms, pecs, and legs, in the form of muscle. I have roughly one month to redistribute that though, and I think I can do it.

One Month Away

I am exactly 1 month away from tanning my buns on the sands of Rehoboth Beach. I am in such a need of a vacation I can hardly take it. I have my square cut swim suits all ready to go, my beach towels and sun screen packed up, so i am basically ready to be there now.

Although circumstances have changed a little in regards to the the people in the house, I still think it should be a great time. And by circumstances I mean that i dont really get along with 2-3 people that are going and staying in our house. But I will put on my smiley face and play it cool. I dont need a repeat of last year by any means. Ill keep my fists to myself and will wear a sign around my neck that says, "Plays Well With Others".

I do have some of my best friends coming though, which will make this trip amazing. Our house is one block away from the beach, and two blocks away from the gay beach, which is puuurrfect. We will be there from July 4th-11th, so if anyone plans to be there also during those times, hit me up!

Ill also be sure to take lots of photos this year!

Worst TV Show Ever

I am a huge sucker for horrible reality television. So I decided to watch an episode of the critically acclaimed, *cough, "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!" and it was just as bad as I was expecting it to be. Besides the cute host of the show, Damien, everything about this program was a joke. I couldnt believe I actually watched it for an entire hour without cutting myself. It wasnt the least bit entertaining and actually at times, unbearable to watch. And for some reason, NBC has this on 3 times a frickin week! Apparently they are having some trouble filling time slots.

This brings me to another point, I cant say I'm addicted to TV, but I do have my shows that I would watch on an every week basis. I am an avid fan of Lost, Grey's Anatomy, Nip/Tuck, and a few others. However, I found now that they are all over until next season, I am quite bored out of my mind. Now, I know I could do something productive with my time, but by the time I get home from being to the gym everyday, I am pretty worn out and just want to relax in front of my TV. But as good shows are becoming scarce and in return have been forced to watch the same movies that play on HBO over and over again. For example, I have now watched "Erin Brockovich" possibly 10 times in the past month. Even though I do love this movie, I think once I hit the 15 mark, I may have to call Erin herself and tell her I am no longer able to watch her movie.

I guess I am stuck with news shows for the time being. I do watch Bill Mahr, Keith Olbermann, and Rachel Maddow, but I can only take some much news in one day considering every hour while I am here at work I am checking CNN, Fox News, JoeMyGod, and Towleroad just so I can stay up to date with the days happenings.
