Truths

1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

22. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

23. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

24. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

Something new

I am adventurous. I love to try new things, especially foods. A new restaurant opened near me called BEE: Best Enchiladas Ever! Of course I had to go.

Friday night a friend and I tried it out. It was interesting! The building was originally a Long John Silvers, then a bar. People didn't like the bar because it still smelled of fish and chips. Everything now is painted bright yellow keeping with the Bee theme.

You walk in and wait in line to order your food at the counter. You grab a card to mark what you want, because everything is a la carte. I kinda liked this because most Mexican restaurants serve rice and refried bean with everything, and I don't like beans. At all!

I ordered a pork enchilada, a chicken enchilada, a chicken taco, chips and queso. My margarita was handed to me in a styrofoam cup... that was weird! Then I was told to wait in line. You watched the cooks make your food behind a glass wall, interesting but kinda weird. You can get takeout or eat in, I was handed a tray with my food and I found an empty table.

The enchiladas were great! You got your choice of corn tortillas, blue corn, something else (I don't remember) or flour. I like that I have the choice. You also chose your sauce on top and type of cheese. I liked feeling empowered like this so I thought my meal was perfect!

I judge a restaurant by the food so I will go back. Honestly though, I'm not crazy about the atmosphere or ambiance of the place. Overall though, I give it a thumbs up.

It's starting

The city is gearing up for the big day when most of the country will be watching some big game in Dallas. At least that's all we hear about on the news.

On Friday coworkers were beginning to speculate if things will change much within the next 2 weeks. I work downtown and all the hotels are gearing up for people to start pouring into the city. "Will traffic be worse than it is now?" we all wondered. God I hope not!

While at lunch some of the women were talking about the best place to go for a happy hour to maybe run into a celebrity in town for the big game. They named about a dozen five star hotels that should be filling up with all kinds of people. The plans are starting, the hotels and the "hot and happening" bars are being mapped out and everyone is all a twitter!

Eh... I don't really care.

I'll keep y'all posted if I run into anyone famous.

Current reality

I'm really enjoying a book called Pagan Visions for a Sustainable Future. But this one part made me laugh a little. I'll quote the chapter and then give my answers:

Check your current reality: Questions to ask yourself.

1. Who do you live with, and what is your relationship to these people?

Well, I live alone. I guess I could say that I live with some stuffed animals and maybe some dust bunnies under the bed.
My relationship to them? Well, I own the animals, I am their Lord and Master! HA!
The dust bunnies hide from me.

2. Is your relationship to those with whom you live different to the relationship you have with your friends? If so, how and why?
My friend are real, they talk back to me when I talk to them, unlike the animals who are faithful listeners.
The dust bunnies are just annoying, well... just like some of my friends I guess.

3. Do you hold a job? If so, who are you around your workmates and bosses?
Yes I hold a job. I am the "go to" person for any systems stuff they need help with. I'm also the old gay guy with the weird sense of humor.
The bosses should know I want to work less and get paid more!

4. If you are studying, what is your relationship to (a) the tutors and (b) the subject matter of your study? Is the subject matter of your study aligned with a vocation?
I guess I study people all the time, especially nice looking menz.
(a)What does my relationship with a TV show of Henry VIII have to do with this? I like the time period and in his younger days I guess Henry could have been a hottie.
(b) I wish I had more relationships with the hot menz!

But none of the hot men I know are in in the priesthood.



heehee

Well... all of this is my current reality.

Sad, I know.

Flakes


There are a few people in my life that this applies to! Why can't people just be themselves? Why do some people think that they have to put up this fake front? I won't group everyone together by the actions of just a few, but there are fake people out there.

I know I've written about the online persona that people have, but what I'm talking about is how people are in person. I understand people have walls up to protect them from hurt, but some people are just fake.

Maybe I'm judging, but I really do try to take into account the whole essence of a person. They may be just having a bad day or an off day. But these fakes are people I've known for a while and their fakeness is consistent.

Oh well... I guess I just need to tollerate them, let them be who they want to be. As long as I don't have to spend too much time with them.

Random Question Wednesday

What childhood illness do you remember? How did you feel about it?

I remember when I was about 8 or 9 years old I got pneumonia. It seemed like every winter I was always sick with tonsillitis, but it felt different that time, I could tell I was really sick. But I was a middle child and not one to be pushy to get attention, there were 3 older children and a toddler for mom to keep track of. So I think it just took my mom a while to notice just how sick I really was! They rushed me to the doctor and I was immediately admitted to the hospital.

When I say "rushed" I mean we drove 25 miles to the next closest town where the doctor and hospital was. Of course mom felt really bad that she let me get so sick and she made sure I was OK, but she eventually had to go back home to take care of the rest of the family. This was the first time ever I was left all alone. I felt so abandoned, at least when my parents left me before I had a baby sitter or my older sister around. But this time I felt so alone! The hospital bed had a button to call the nurse and I'm sure I wore her out calling her so often to ask when my mom was coming back.

After what seemed like an eternity mom finally came back to the hospital and stayed the night with me. I've thought a lot about how alone I felt. As an adult I realized that just the driving time was an hour. Then at home mom had to make dinner or go get a neighbor to help get the rest of my siblings fed and into bed. Then to get an overnight bag and somethings for me; books, coloring books and my favorite stuffed animal, my Jimmy Bear.

Maybe that was one of my first steps into adulthood. I think of mom a lot more now. March will be 4 years since she passed away. I liked how my life would immediately feel better when I knew mom was coming back and would be there for me when I was a kid.


So, please share your stories too. If you want to take the topic and write about this on your blog, let me know. I like hearing other people's stories.

Gym thoughts

I mentioned to a friend this evening that it feels like the newbies have already thinned out. There are less and less people there. His theory is that the economy is bad so those that aren't working, aren't spending money on a gym membership, and those that are working are over-working and working longer hours. Whatever it is, I'm glad that there aren't so many people in my way anymore.

Don't get me wrong... I would like for more people to start exercising and be in better shape. I encourage them to go, but that brings something else to mind. Some people seem like they don't know what they're doing. If they're not working out with a trainer or reading fitness magazines, I suppose one can feel lost in a gym. What is a good workout routine?

I motivated myself to workout. I had a boyfriend in Baltimore that taught me a lot. I also read a lot of fitness books and magazines for tips. I also had no problem approaching someone to ask what would be a good way to workout a particular muscle group. Of course I asked the big good-looking ones, they were the one's with the big muscles anyway. And they were always willing to give me pointers.

A few of the machines have a small picture on them that gives instructions and show the muscle that is being worked. But the free-weights; what do you do? How often? What's the correct form? What is a good weight to lift? How many sets and how long do you rest between? It can be intimidating!

I've had a few friends want to workout with me and I have enjoyed showing them what to do and how to focus on the correct form. But I have told them right up front, especially if they haven't been working out very much before, that they cannot try to keep up with me (I've been doing this for 10 years now). If they do their muscles will be very sore and they won't feel like coming back.

So when I see a newbie and see them doing something wrong or they try to lift too heavy... I consider mentioning something to them, give them a pointer or two. But I don't think anyone wants uninvited help. I think it would come across... weird or something. I was talking about this with some women at the office and apparently women don't have a problem taking tips from a stranger. But we agree that men probably would. Men have this ego thing. Well, some men do anyway....

So let me ask all my readers this; if you were a newbie to a gym and didn't have a personal trainer, would you mind a random stranger giving you a tip or suggestion?

Mud. Ugh.

The temperature in Dallas finally got over 50 degrees today! Woohoo! So I packed up the bike and drove over to my favorite trail. As I drove into the parking area there were two young shirtless guys. Woohoo! But their bikes were caked with mud. I didn't even get a half mile into the ride when I realized that it wasn't fun. Oh well, I headed back, packed the bike back into the RAV4 and headed over to Whiterock Lake to ride the paved trails.

I prefer to be on less crowded, more challenging trails... but this was better than dealing with mud during the ride and then cleaning mud out of my vehicle once I got home.

It was a good ride, I felt like I got in a good cardio workout. I also enjoyed the ride around the lake. There were a lot of geese, ducks and even some pelicans. The geese thought I was going to throw bread to them or something because they came up really close.

I saw lots of menz out cycling and jogging! Lots of cute ones! At least I think they were cute, I only got a glimpse as I rode past.

Mud or menz? I made the right decision today.

Y'all have a great weekend!

Stylish Blogger Award

Sean from Idle Eyes and A Dormey tagged me with this award.

The rules for the Stylish Blogger Award are:

* Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.
* Share 7 honest (and perhaps unrevealed until now) things about yourself
* Award other bloggers, as many or as few as you wish, and explain why you chose them.


Sean: Thank you!
I appreciate what you said about me and my little blog. I know fo' sho' we would get along fabulously in person! I absolutely love Undie Monday! And by the way... it was only a month or so ago that I finally understood your blog name! LOL! LOVE IT!!



I also share a lot about myself in this forum, but there is a whole lot of things people don't know about me. I'll list a few things here:

1. When I mention to someone that I write a blog they always ask me; "What do you write about?" I always answer; "just... stuff" and then explain why I chose the name for my blog. I just write about the stuff that goes on in my life. Honestly I think my life is boring, but that's OK, at least it's not high drama.

2. Sometimes I get a little freaked out that there is all this personal stuff about me out there on the world wide web. I have had strangers meet me in person and mention my blog. I get random emails from people sometimes too. I just remember that they may think they know me... but they only know what I want people to know. In some ways I too hide behind an online persona in writing this blog.

3. I have 2 brother's and 2 sisters, but I have one sibling that I have nothing to do with at all! Last time I spoke to this sibling was Jimmas 2009. I don't want this sibling as part of my life. Sometimes I think I should be more forgiving but usually I'm OK with it.

4. The more I read about reincarnation the more I believe in it! But I think it's kind of dumb for someone to think that they were some king, queen or famous person in a former life. What happens to us after death is one huge mystery! But I really have opened my mind to new and different belief systems than the way I was raised.

5. I really don't have any deep dark secrets! I'm pretty honest and usually have no problem telling someone something if they really want to know. Now, that is different than being confrontational or just volunteering information that might hurt someone. I do know the meaning of the word "discretion".

6. I believe that everyone who blogs believes they have some sort of creative writing gene. I daydream that I will write a best selling novel some day. There is also the possibility that my blog will be made into a movie (just like Julie and Julia). But... I write for me, not to try to get a high number of pageviews or lots of followers and even though I love reading people's comments (I really do!!) I don't write just to see how many comments I can get. I really do like writing!

7. This was harder than I thought it would be; thinking up interesting things about me. Still, I do think it best to meet me in person! You can really get to know me by speaking with me, watching my body language and facial expressions.



Now on to awarding other bloggers:

I have to mention my bestest friend: Jay With An A He's new to the game; go give him some encouragement to keep writing!

Homer. I loves me some Homer! I love reading his stories about his life, his work, his ancestors and his cats.

Spo. He's is someone I really want to meet in person. I have a secret crush on him... but don't tell Someone! I can hardly wait for my turn with the Spo-shirt (whomever has it... um, I want a turn!)

Dave at Ultra Dave. Love hearing about his life. I need to be on Facebook more so we can chat, Dave!

Well... just go to my blog list. They're all there because I like reading their blogs.

January 18, 2011

Sometimes... 4.0

... I go back to read my blog to see what I was doing last year.

... I forget that I wrote stuff on my blog.

... I cringe at some of the pictures I posted here.

... I wonder who in the world is reading this stuff!

... I read old posts and laugh. A lot!

... I see something I did back in 2009 posted as something new on someone's Facebook page.

... I steal other people's ideas.

... I just gotta dance!

... I think it's fun to go back and remember some fun stuff!

I have a dream too

Dr. Martin Luther King gave his "I Have a Dream" speech on my second birthday; August 28, 1963.

It's interesting to read or listen to the speech. Click here.

Here is part of his speech:
"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

I dream that gays and lesbians will not be second class citizens in this country. I read Alan's blog about gay marriage being legal now in Canada for ten years now. I really do hope that the United States will catch up and start respecting us.

I'm a Leo?

Astronomers say that due to changes in the Earth's alignment the dates of many zodiac signs have changed. In addition, there may be a 13th Zodiac sign: Ophiuchus.

“The Earth spins and, like a toy top, the spin axis moves around, pointing in different directions. Today, Earth's spin axis points toward the pole star, Polaris. Around 3000 BCE* Earth's spin axis pointed toward Thuban. Astronomers call this motion of the spin axis precession.

“This means that if the sun was "in" a certain constellation on a particular date, it is in a different constellation on that date today. For example, the sun was in Pisces on March 1, 2000 BCE but it is in Aquarius on March 1, 2011 CE*.”

See if your Zodiac sign has changed below. And find out if your friends' signs have changed under the dates below.

The New Dates:

Capricorn: Jan. 20 - Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16 - March 11
Pisces: March 11- April 18
Aries: April 18 - May 13
Taurus: May 13 - June 21
Gemini: June 21 - July 20
Cancer: July 20 - Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10 - Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16 - Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30 - Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23 - Nov. 29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29 - Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17 - Jan. 20

Mine did change! So, I guess my last tattoo makes sense now:
RAWWWRRR!

*Also, if you didn't know BC formerly know as Before Christ is now called BCE-Before Common Era. And who even knew what AD stood for anyway? (It was Anno Domini) So the new term is now CE-Common Era.

Wow! All kinds of new things to learn today!

A new cycle of life

Life moves in cycles.

-There is a natural change of seasons.
-We all grow older and eventually everything thing seems dominated by a younger generation.
-Our moods also go in cycles. I don't think anyone can always be up and active all the time, we need some down time.
-There are times we are extremely happy and times when we are extremely sad.
-The attitudes of society and our social groups are always changing. Groups are all angry and show hate and then a tragedy hits and those same people realize that hate and our words do affect people and attitudes change. Compassion then becomes a little more important than being right.
-Each of us also go through cycles. I know I do. There are times when I find I'm bored with the things I've been doing and just want a change. Then somehow, years later we go back to what it was we loved doing before.

I know I'm going through a change, a new cycle of life. I'm getting bored being in front of a screen a lot of time. I'm finding that reading a book is more enjoyable to me now than spending countless hours on-line.

I found the snuggie and have been keeping warm on these cold winter nights.

January 13, 2011

Bbbbrrrrr

I'm so glad I don't live in a northeastern state! I know y'all are having a bad winter, but I'm so glad I don't have to deal with the cold and snow! People are very surprised to learn that this guy from Utah (me) has never been snow skiing! I grew up in the desert, not the cold snowy mountains.

There's a reason I like living in Texas. I know y'all will think I'm whiny when I say that I've been freezing this week, but that's OK. I like the heat! I really would rather have it be 90 or 100 degrees than in the 30s like it's been all week. I don't feel like I'm really warm; either my nose or my fingers or my toes are always cold! Even if I have several layers of clothing on, I still don't like any part of me to be cold!

Bbbbbrrrr.... bring on the heat!!

Random thoughts

I'm weird in that I like days with numbers like today; 1.11.11


I had sushi tonight! Yum! The last time I had sushi was in Chicago in the beginning of December.

Dallas has some great sushi restaurants. It's weird that I love sushi because I hated fish when I was a kid!


I'm thinking about taking a yoga class again. I felt very uncoordinated when I first tried it years ago, but think I would do better now. Any recommendations of what I should do to get ready?



And finally... there was a croc sighting in the Rio Grande!

LOL!

January 9, 2011

That's Texas for you...

Yesterday was a beautiful day!

Weather was in the upper 50s and I finally got out on the bike. I drove about 25 miles up to a favorite trail. It's on the shores of a lake and every once in a while you get a great view of the lake. It also has some challenging hills to navigate.

I played leap-frog with some young hotties; they would pass me on the straight away parts of the path and I would ride past them when it came to the hills. I did get a good pic of one of them as I stopped to take pictures in the bamboo grove.

I would let them pass often (I'm admit I'm an ass man and I love riding behind a nice butt on a bike) *evil grin*

Here is a view of the lake:


Well, overnight a cold front blew in. It's now sleeting where I live and snowing in other parts of Dallas. But this is typical for Texas; they have a saying, "If you don't like the weather just wait a few hours, it will change".

With the rain, snow and the the arctic air coming in today it means the roads will be icing over. Driving to work tomorrow morning will be interesting.
*sad face*

It's a good day to be watching movies and catching up on friend's blogs.

Hope y'all have a great rest of the weekend!

January 8, 2011

Oh my!

He grasped me firmly, but gently, just above my elbow and guided me into a room, his room. Then he quietly shut the door and we were alone. He approached me soundlessly, from behind, and spoke in a low, reassuring voice, close to my ear. "Just relax"

Without warning, he reached down and I felt his strong, calloused hands start at my ankles, gently probing and moving upward along my calves, slowly, but steadily. My breath caught in my throat. I knew I should be afraid, but somehow I didn't care. His touch was so experienced, so sure.

When his hands moved up onto my thighs, I gave a slight shudder, and I partly closed my eyes. My pulse was pounding. I felt his knowing fingers caress my abdomen, my ribcage. And then, as he cupped my pects in his hands, I inhaled sharply as his hand grazed each nipple.

Probing, searching, knowing what he wanted, he brought his hands to my shoulders, slid them down my tingling spine and into my boxers. Although I knew nothing about this man, I felt oddly trusting and expectant. This is a man, I thought, a man used to taking charge. A man not used to taking no for an answer. A man who would tell me what he wanted. A man who would look into my soul and say . . . . .

"Okay sir, all done."

My eyes snapped open and he was standing in front of me, holding my ticket, smiling. "You can board your flight now."

LOL! I wish....

The Unfortunate Fringe Incident

There are lots of newbies at the gym.

It's that time of year when the "resolutioners" fill up the machines, get in your way and hog the bench you want to use. And they usually have no gym-etiquette. *rolls eyes*

But we know that the crowds will thin by the end of the month and gym life will be almost be back to normal by mid-February.

There are some advantages; sometimes one of the newbies is a hottie.

One of these said creatures (the hottie newbie) we nicknamed "Scruff". Young twenty-something with the scruffy beard and baseball cap working out with this buddy.

I missed the gym yesterday but had dinner later with a friend who did workout. I missed something. Something terrible!

Scruff was there again... (that's him in the picture below)
Do you notice anything weird about it?


Get a closer look at the bottom of the shirt!

WTF??

What is wrong with him? NO ONE does that to their shirt anymore (well, not since the 80's). Nor does someone even buy one, let alone wear it to the gym!

We all did a collective "awwww..." *sad face*

Sadly Scruff doesn't seem that hot anymore.


LOL!

Random Question Wednesday

I haven't done one of my random questions in a long time so here goes:

What would you do if you were told you were going to die soon?

This might be a very heavy topic for people. Not me, maybe it's because I'm growing older, but it doesn't bother me to talk about death. The Death card in the Tarot is not an ominous card; it represents change. The end to a natural cycle of life. It's just change; and what this change will be exactly is what mankind has been trying to figure out. There are as many different theories about what happens to us at death as there are religions.

Death is a part of life. There is no escaping this event. I think we all worry about how we will go not "if". I certainly don't want to suffer or have something traumatic happen.

So if I was told I would die soon, I would assume that I have some amount of time left. I would start taking risks, spending money, taking trips and then start saying my goodbyes. I would make sure that the people I love know that I love them. I would want to experience as much of life as I could, I would not sit around being sad, crying or being depressed.

**EPIPHANY**
Why not start all this now?

Death in inevitable.

I need to start living every day like it was my last!



Of course I would love to read what you would do if you were told you were going to die soon. Please share your thoughts.

January 3, 2011

Who are you?

The world is at our fingertips. No, literally; at our fingertips! We have access to the Internet; public data, porn, games, maps, books, stores, shopping, dating site... everything right in our hands. For many of us it's the iPhone or something very similar. It's immediate access to information. Then when we get home we probably end up sitting in front of another, even larger screen; either a computer monitor or a television screen.

And what are we doing when we're in front of these screens? Just sitting there. Maybe typing.

So, why do we think we're in this big social network? Have you ever been out to a bar or restaurant and have seen a group of people all sitting together, not talking, just looking at their phones? OK, maybe occasionally they'll show someone sitting next to them their screen, but not for very long.

I'm not judging... I do this too.

So if we're online constantly; either on Facebook, Grindr, Scruff, My Space, Match.com, blogging, tweeting or whatever it is, we are still just sitting there in front of a screen. You can make yourself into anything you want. You create an online persona. But is that really you?

What can you really tell about a person from a one inch square picture? You're only reading what they want you to know. It really is hiding behind a mask in some ways.

I really like meeting a person in person! You learn so much more about a person by eye contact, body language, gestures, their sense of humor, their vibe and so much more.

If your New Year's Resolution is to be online less; I'd say, with that extra time spend it with someone. In real conversation and in real interactions.



OK, I'm talking to me mostly!

January Tarot card

The High Priestess

Well, it looks like January will be an interesting month shrouded in mystery!

The High Priestess represents the mysteries of the unconscious and the Inner Voice, and her appearance is often a sign that your intuition is trying to send you a message. The unconscious often speaks to us in symbols, so I need to be alert for anything that seems out of the ordinary.

I also need to follow my intuition and trust my instincts.

Happy New Year! 1.1.11

Happy New Year everyone! Hope y'all brought in the new year in style! I had the pleasure of meeting Erik and his husbear! It was nice to start a new year with new friends!


It's a new year; a new attitude and a new look for the blog too.

I don't make many New Year's Resolutions. I'm not a list maker, I don't want a bunch of things to try to remember. I like asking friends and coworkers in about June or July if they remember what their New Year's Resolution was.

I usually just pick a theme; a mantra, to live by for the year. Last year's was: Live Simple; meaning I should take the time to stop and enjoy the simple, small things in life.

This year my resolution/mantra is: Take the High Road

Let me explain: For as long as I can remember my mother, a teacher or a boss has always advised me to be the bigger person, the one to take the high road and be the one to just do the right thing. Even when it's obvious when someone had wronged me and I had every right be be upset or angry. I have always felt like saying "Why me? Why should I be the one that has to be the better person? I mean, shouldn't everyone always be their best?" I've always resented it!

But now, I have decided that this will be my choice. I will act and not just react when in difficult situations. I will make a point to always be my best and not give into the base feeling to get back at someone or get even.
