It was good for me...was it good for you?

I don't have many words for what's to follow this text...but wow...WOW. It made me all teary eyed. It was fucking amazing.

When the cat's away...

Well, I have definitely been lacksadasical (sp?) about posting to my blog lately and for good reason!

I've just been having waaay too much fun living it up and enjoying my life. It's like I got my second wind and I'm taking full advantage of it!

The other weekend I attended the West Coast Altarholics Appreciation Day (which I helped coordinate)! It was tons of fun hanging out with fellow fans of the off-Broadway hit Altar Boyz. We first hit up Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure; then in the evening caught the musical All Shook Up, which starred former Altar Boyz alum James Royce Edwards (OMG he's a HOTTIE!!!) and Dennis Moench (he's adorable!!!). We also got to see some of the other Boyz from the regional production I mentioned a few posts before, Danny Calvert and Dan Pacheco (he plays Aladdin in the Aladdin Experience at Disney's California Adventures, although he's on hiatus at the moment, which I'll explain). Danny and Dan are going to be starring in a production called Zanna Don't which starts in July. Should be good!

Then that following Monday, I also caught Dan (and Danny as well, they're roommates...ahem) in Fractured Broadway 2, a fundraiser for the Valley Musical Theatre at the El Portal in North Hollywood (or NoHo for the locals). Definitely hilarious show! With some big names in attendance like Bruce Vilanch and Kristoffer Cusik who plays Fyero in the LA production of Wicked (he looks sooo hot in his horse riding pants he wears in the show...nice bubble butt! :D).

I continued the fun this weekend with attending BFoL's graduation. It was great to see him walk (although he reminds me that yes he may have graduated but he still has summer school...whatever! haha)! After that hung out with the Fag Hag at South Coast Plaza. There was an unusually high concentration of 'mos out and definitely lots of eye candy (there was one in particular while we were at the CPK Express...hello nurse!)! It was great hanging out with the hag as usual! Thanks ho! ;)

After hanging out with her, I headed out to dinner with my lil bro from my fraternity during college. I rekindled our relationship as we weren't really on the best of terms but we talked; I had decided earlier on this year that I would fix things from my past if I knew I could and this is one of those things. So I met him at and his place and he looked cuter than I last remembered seeing him. The handsome devil lost weight! (On a side: note I joked with TOBF that I would seduce my little...I found out he's my delight! :D) Homeboy is sexy and he doesn't even know it! *sigh* Anyways, we headed out to Downtown Disney and had dinner at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen! Definitely good eats! I'd show you his picture, but in all fairness, none of you have seen my least not those of you who I don't have in my inner circle; and you know who you are! :D Unfortunately, he deflected me for catching a movie to go work ona project for his work portfolio).

I then proceeded to hang out with the new couple (I mentioned their wedding previously as well). Actually, they napped while I prepped their wedding gift (which worked to my advantage). Their dog was a pain in the ass, luckily the little bastard listens to me when I tell him to sit and go down and such. He's cute but he's too rambunctious! :p Anyways chilled at their place, went with them so they could grab dinner and played some Wii before I headed out to hang out with BFoR and mutual friend at BFoR's parent's place. They were busy playing World of Warcraft (ugh I hate that game) and I just hung out until we all got kinda hungry and got some tacos. Unfortunately, as we got back, mutual friend decided to spill the tacos in the back of my car! Oy! We cleaned that the time we got back it was nearly 4AM...I end up crashing at BFoR's for a few hours and headed home at 9AM.

Got back to my parent's place and tried to get my ass to the gym at a timely manner. After getting back to the gym tried to clean up Mutual Friend's mess that he made in my car and napped a bit. Headed out with parents to do a joing birthday dinner for my mom and Father's Day. I don't know what my parents were smoking but they wanted to eat at Red Lobster. No offense to anyone, but if you know Red Lobster, it's ghetto. G-H-E-T-T-O! Luckily the hour and fifteen minute wait dissuaded them and we headed out elsewhere. We ended up at CPK at the Cerritos Mall. Luckily only a 15 minute wait. And that's where our luck stopped. Worst service EVER! And I mean the WORST!!! Guy forgets my drink, didn't put in my pizza order and gave me the wrong size salad. I just had to let the inner diva come out and complain to the manager. Got one of my parent's dishes comped and the manager ended up giving me a comp entree and drink coupon. Yah the waiter might have been cute, but that's where the pronouns ended.

Now I'm here wittling away at your eyeballs. I'm not even sure if anyone read's my blog still, but for those of you that do, thank you. Hope you all have a great week, cause I know I WILL!!! :D

All the Rage!!!

Last Friday, I finally popped my gay clubbing cherry! Thanks to Bootylicious and Ass Fister (protecting the names of the not so innocent) for the invite and open arms! I had sooo much fun!

We hit up WeHo and we all met at the Pacific Design Center for parking where I met two of Ass Fister's friends and Bootylicous' old apartment mate. Two of us we're about to have our cherries popped! Not to mention Bootylicious mentioned that I looked "pretty" rather than handsome; her saying that as it was appropriate for the area...Haha! :D

We went to Rage first to get our bracelets for $7 a head (if we got there before 9:30PM it would have been free! Darn it!), then we went to the (in)famous Abbey. And unbeknownst to me previously, I've already been to the area once before for someone's birthday dinner at an adjacent restaurant as well as having gone to the Troubador about a month or two ago with BFoL and BFoL's ex-bf for Bic Runga. Anyways, The Abbey was surreal! Like I said to Ass Fister, it was like a toned down version of an episode of QAF. It was totally WeHo'ed out! I mean it was insanely upscale, classy and definitely snooty! Not my cup of tea in that sense, but the talent was far and wide! Bootylicious' old roomie had a preferred bartender, Chad. He is DEFINITELY a hottie, albeit straight! Nice to look at though! Maybe he'd be gay for pay! LOL Anyways, we hung around at The Abbey had mojitos (had a mango mojito myself and tasted the lemonade vodka, pineapple mojito and I forget what else).

We then proceeded back down the street to drop by a porn shop that had toys strewn all over the place, particularly dildos right when you walk in, a wall of porn (they had Straight College Men DVDs on the wall), and what ended up being an attraction for two of the girls who we were with was the butt plugs. Ass Fister explained the nuances of the devices as Bootylicious and roomie tired of the store.

Next stop was the Cantina, where we accidentally crashed a private party on the upstairs floor, and then settled in a corner next to the ATM where two guys let us kinda take over their table (whoops!). Billy our server was kinda cute, but the question of the moment was if he was gay or straight. Consensus came to be that he was definitely gay as Booty's roomie stated, "He's wearing eye liner!!!" Not to mention Billy was a bit flamboyant! Hah! We ordered cheddar fries and nachos, along with 4 margaritas (2 each of Key Lime and Peach); go 2 for 1 on the drinks! We chowed down and as we were leaving I decided to give Billy a nice tap and brush on his back as we left! I was definitely buzzing at this point! Will definitely need to revisit the Cantina!

And back to Rage we went and by this time it was packed! Full of asian guys as it was Asian night (aka GAMeBoi). We got in there and proceeded to dance out on the floor! They had a great selection of music which was great, thankfully it wasn't overdone techno like in QAF. Most of the night was dancing and I had my share of drinks. I had a refresher of an Amaretto Sour, when I spotted a fraternity brother and then lost him. As Ass Fister and I headed back upstairs, I found my fraternity brother and he was surprised to see me! We exchanged hugs and he proceeded back into the hip hop room looking for a guy he met at work. More dancing and we stayed til closing. Ass Fister met a guy (and later I found out the guy he met is in an open relationship and is from SF), and they got pretty "friendly," if you get what I mean.

I then also ran into someone else from an organization I was in during college. I thought I saw him while inside, then as he was crossing the street to leave I confirmed and we exchanged hugs as well. It was great seeing familiar faces in what I thought would have been a scary "coming out" moment.

All in all, the evening was the most fun I had in a while and where I also felt completely normal for once. It was awesome! Thanks to Booty and Ass Fister! And another thanks to Booty for my "coming out" drink! Can't wait to go out with all of them! Next time Fag Hag better go! :p And next time hopefully I find some action as well! :X

I also attended a wedding this past weekend, but I'll save that for the next post...
