Q: What made you start blogging?
A: I've talked before about why I started blogging, but I'll read this as "why on 11/16/08 did I clicked on my first 'publish' button". I had been reading a few blogs for a long time and really enjoyed them. I thought; "I can do this!" and so I started writing a few entries on MySpace's blog area. It took me a few hours, but I finally figured out how blogspot worked. I wrote my first entry and then sent the URL to friends. I now had a profile so I could leave comments on other blogs. With that mouse click I entered the blogosphere.
Q: Who was your first boyfriend?
A: Ken. We met when I lived in Henderson, NV when I was 22 yrs old.
Q: Where was your first kiss?
A: On the lips! :) (hehehe)
When I was living in Pleasant Grove, Utah. I was telling a coworker about how I had just dented my new truck. When I left work there was a note on my windshield. A guy had overheard me talking to my coworker, found a new truck in the parking lot with a dent in it and left me a note with his phone number. I called and he invited me over. About 5 minutes after I got there I got my first kiss. I had kissed a lot of girls in high school and college, but this was the first one from a man and one where fireworks went off.
Q: When did you realize you were gay?
A: I always knew I was different growing up but couldn't pin-point exactly in what way, until I was 8 years old. Mormon kids are baptised when they are 8 years, as they believe at that age a kid can chose for themselves between right and wrong. My dad baptized me (by full immersion) and then we had to go change out of our wet clothes. My friend was also baptized that night by his dad and I wanted to stay in there to watch my friend's dad change. My dad pulled me out of the changing room just seconds before my friend's dad dropped trou. Damn! I almost saw it. I knew then I was gay.
Q: Why don't you come to philly for a visit?
A: I love Philly! I have been there many times. I would love to visit again. Maybe for another Mummers Parade. I will let you know if I plan a trip!
Q: How many blogger buddies have you met in person?
A: I have met 4 people who are on my blogroll. And 3 others who no longer write. (aw *sad face*)
