Mah birthday

03.30.2005 · Posted in Autobiographical

My birthday was very nice. Friends put a lot of effort into it and it turned out to be a gay ‘ol time. I got some gag gifts – “Gliding Jesus” action figure, an entire bottle of “Rimming Syrup” and a kitty-launching gun. The food was fantastic, and the cake was quite endearing: I also ...

Past the quarter century mark

03.29.2005 · Posted in Autobiographical

Good lord, yes, I’ve turned 26 today. Thanks, Jim, for announcing that to the world. I am at work today. Saw my shrink this morning. AA meeting this evening and then gathering with friends afterwards. I don’t feel that much older, but the thought of turning 30 at this point is a little disheartening 😉 ...

I’m coming out

… as a former bed-wetter. Yep, you read that right. I wet the bed every night until I was 8 years old. For as far back as I can remember there was a plastic sheet that wrapped around my twin mattress. Laying down on my bed or turning from side to side would create a ...

Life is F.I.N.E.

I’m fine lately. Fucked up Insecure Neurotic Emotional Hah! No seriously, things are okay. Nothing really new going on. Just the usual work, the program, and still working on getting the website back up to par after the incident. Actually, I take that back. There is something new. I started my ninth step. I was ...

It’s for a good cause…

Please tell ten friends to tell ten today! The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on “donating ...

Rural Minnesota school shooting

03.22.2005 · Posted in In the news

Wow. It’s a sad day. Some kid, 17 years old, shot and killed his grandparents, then went to school in his grandfather’s police squad car, opened fire, killed 7 others (teacher, security guard and students), then killed himself after injuring more than 10 others. Per capita, his rampage was more damaging than the Columbine incident ...

Pat O’Brien enters rehab

03.21.2005 · Posted in In the news

You’re probably asking yourself, “Who is Pat O’Brien?” He’s one of the stars of Entertainment Tonight and an anchor on The Insider. I wish him well. I’m glad that he came out publicly about it and issued a statement instead of trying to hide it. But who knows – he may have had his hand ...

Back online

03.20.2005 · Posted in Autobiographical

The blog is back online again, as is Jim’s. Here’s a brief synopsis of the stages I’ve gone through since discovering my site was offline: 1. Panic 2. Double-panic – it wasn’t just my blog that was down – other sites were down, too. 3. Triple-panic – the entire contents of my server had been ...

Rosie’s got a blog

03.20.2005 · Posted in In the news

Rosie has a blog. I thought it was a hoax, too, but apparenlty it’s true – she claims it’s her’s as stated in this NYT article. The blog is made up entirely of lyric-like poems about her life. Very odd – almost seems a bit disturbing. Her latest entry is below, dated March 17th. At ...
