I discovered last week one of my blog links is dead. However, I’ve left it up in the hope that the author is just in some sort of switch over and will be back up and running soon. If you are like me and blog bounce, yes I know the link isn’t working.
I had a surprise date w/TH last night. His family weekend went over ok but apparently there was some friction which was very disappointing for him. I felt awful because I knew how much he wanted this weekend to go perfect. He sounded so distraught on the first message he left me on Saturday that I actually teared up a bit. Family problems are a sensitive spot for me I guess. Mine was so horrible I get overly emotional when I hear people going thru such unnecessary stupidity over being gay. I don’t think he’d appreciate me going into the specifics so thatís enough about that.
I did my best to distract him from it. We had a movie night and watched Auntie Mame. I just knew that would cheer him up. Plus, I told him he couldn’t carry his gay card anymore until he’d seen it. I mean NO gay man should grow up w/o watching The Grand Mamie! He loved it of course. We laughed our butts off. I felt like mission accomplished.
Before the date, I spent a chunk of the evening hanging out in the Castro w/buddy Tim and Norm Norm is one of the photographers for The Powerhouse and he also does a lot of the shots for the BCC as well. We ran into each other and started talking shop about laptops, pics, etc and then Tim came along and joined us. Tim proceeded to regale us w/tales of being cornered by a troll at the bar and wanted to know if the way he handled it was respectful/appropriate. Letís just say he was WAY nicer than I would have been. I use the term “troll” to refer to people, regardless of their age, who force themselves on you and use your own good manners against you to further insinuate themselves into your personal space. There are other more derogatory uses but I don’t think I need to elaborate. I wonder if Webster has the updated definition of the word. *mental note - email Webster crew w/details and proper usage*
Not much else to ramble about I’m afraid. Give it time, I’m sure something will inspire me.
