Back to basics

Today someone from my past returned. He reminded me why I do what I do. And I think it was also a nudge toward the next step.

Only in Wyoming

Only in Wyoming can a man go duck hunting at 4am and then attend a reception for GLBTQ faculty and staff in the evening. At times, I am the stereotype. At others, I enjoy breaking them down. Guns in the morning, appetizers in the evening. Isn't this a great state?

Another fun gay link

Yet another website fell into my lap today. I decided I must share it as well.

Make your speakers are on and that you hover over most everything on the page for fun audio blips. I just have to say "Moo."

"I laughed so hard a little pee came out"

So the Rev has done an outstanding job creating and fostering an open discussion about religion and/or spirituality. I think everyone has been respectful of others, and it has been quite an enlightening dialogue. So what happens when it's NOT a nice discussion with willing participants? Check out the link below to find out. And if you ever see me publicly belting out a number from "My Fair Lady" or "The Sound of Music," you'll know why.

PS...5 Thursday night bonus points to anyone who can tell me where the title for today's post came from.

Calling all cheerleaders!

SO who wants to come watch mediocre volleyball? We're practicing Saturday at 3pm at the sand pit in Washington Park. We also have a game Monday night at 8:20pm in the Spring Creek Elementary School gym. We might have a double header with another game at 9:30pm. Come be a cheerleader for us! Or laugh at our occasional ineptitude. Either way, it should be fun!

Activity abounds!

Zeus managed to convince me that I should join a bowling league with him. Most of the team is queer. Yup, a queer bowling team. Who'd have thunk it? So Friday nights I'll be hitting the lanes. Then today I got an email from friends at work asking me to play volleyball tonight. And now I've been roped into being on a rec league volleyball team, with games on Monday and Wednesday nights. This greatly increases my "after school" activities, and gives me flash backs to high school. It's also a good thing, though, and I think I'm looking forward to it a great deal. But it's off to our first game. Now if I can just remember not to Bump - Set - Spike when I should be going for a strike.

It was a good day

Woke up at nine. Was moving slow, but moving nonetheless. Caught up on some of my recorded shows while cooking breakfast and playing with the pups. Took a shower while listening to Broadway on satellite, because I am that gay. Then picked up Nate and we drove up to the Happy Jack area. Did some trap shooting on a very beautiful day. Fall colors are starting to turn. Drove around back roads with windows down and sunroof open. Spent time with a great guy, though I still don't know if he's interested in being more than friends. Either way, it was nice to spend more time getting to know one another. Time to make steak for dinner. See....I told you it was a good day.

Things that are pissing me off

I have about 5 minutes to post before I have to train a new employee. This seemed like a good topic.
  • HaloScan taking FOREVER to pull up comments. Seriously, I am limited on my blog time right now, and waiting on Halo is making me crazy.
  • My laptop being MIA. I'm in serious withdrawal here, people!
  • People (often employees) who cannot (or rather, choose not to) read. Here are clear instructions. Do not ignore them. Do NOT ask me a question if the answer is contained in these clear instructions.
  • Overbearing parents. "My child can't get into his account. He's taking a lot of credits, and is too busy to come see you. Please call him and give him his password and username." Bite me. If Junior is so busy he can't find 20 minutes in a whole week to get into his account, he doesn't need it. He's too busy to read email. And if he can't handle this kind of shit on his own, he will starve at college, because you're not there to remind him to eat. It's called growing up. Let him/make him.

How's that for a 5 minute rant? I miss posting more regularly, and will do so when a) things quiet down in the office or b) I get my damned laptop back in working order.

Technical Difficulties

Hi folks. Sorry for the long term silence. The laptop cratered (again) 2 days ago. The maintenance techs have it and are trying to resurrect it as we speak, but it means I have no access from home. And with the start of school, I've been mad busy (and sometimes busily mad!). So please bear with the (hopefully) brief interruption in your regularly scheduled gayness. I'll be responding to the Rev's spirituality questionaire soon, so look for me there soon. Miss you all!
