How did I get this wound you may ask? Well, it was Twin Sister's birthday last weekend so obviously we had to celebrate. We had a Mardi Gras themed party with masks and bead and all. After the party we decided to head to JR's for a nightcap. Well on the way on of those pesky curbs jumped up out of nowhere and tripped me. And now I have a wound on my hand.

PS. If any of you have some tips for Munich, please let me know.
02) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.
03) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.
04) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.
05) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britany Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.
06) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.
07) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.
08) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.
09) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.
10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

did [Name Omitted] take it up the ass? yes
was it good? yes
any other questions from the peanut gallery?"
This is an email I received in the morning while I sat down at my desk, drinking a nice cup of coffee and getting ready to work. At this point in time, I hadn't ready any of the other emails associated with this convo. After getting caught up to speed, it made a lot more sense.
This conversation took place on monday and tuesday, after a particularly booze fueled weekend, including a Sunday night at JR's:
Friend #1: [Name omitted], did you take that gentleman home?
[Name Omitted]: no i did not. i am a lady in every sense of the word.
we are going on a date tonight though.
Friend #1: was your chicken fresh last night?
[Name Omitted]: well it was a lovely affair. however, a last-minute scheduiling [sic] change caused a conflict with our original dinner plans, so we were unable to attend. however, all parties were satisfied by the end of the evening.
Friend #1: And will a lady be going for a second plate to the buffet?
[Name Omitted]: he said he wants to see me this weekend. what the hell, he's young and I don't know what to make of him, but whatever. i have no one (er, nothing) better to do.
Friend #1: and what r u going to do with him? and der, is he really a top? obvi, the message boards are filling up with speculations!
[Name Omitted]: is he a top? yes
did [Name Omitted] take it up the ass? yes
was it good? yes
any other questions from the peanut gallery?.
Friend #1: WOW...after a night like that I would think a lady would not have had so much pent up aggression!
Me: [Name Omitted], please do not send that kind of smut onto my work email address :-)
Friend #2: I am blushing. I have no words.
[Name Omitted], you are such a f*cking lady
[Name Omitted]: i just figured i'd kill four birds with one stone since i knew inquiring minds wanted to know *wink*
" Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM.
Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair."
Hmmm, that sounds ominous. Well let's just turn it off and turn it back on and see what happens. Usually that does the trick. [Off] [Wait 5 secs] [On]. After a couple of secs, I get the same error. Hmmm, now it's a bit more ominous. Seeing as this is my office and not my home, and that we are much more organized here in the office than at home, I go searching for this magical 'original setup cd' that can cure my computer. Find it, stick it in, and....still the error.
GRRRR. So I fiddle with the boot order, chosing CD-ROM first instead of hard drive. Still nothing.
Eliminate hard drive as an option.
Right, maybe of got the wrong CD. Try eight others and still nothing.
At this point, puzzlement has turned into despair. Now, I bet some of you are a little puzzled yourself. "Umm, dude it's your work computer. Score! Now you won't have to work." Theoretically you'd be right. But you see, I've had this work computer for over three years. I work for a small company who, unlike many companies, doesn't restrict what you can put on your computer. As I spend far more time on my work computer than I do on my home computer (not to mention the fact the up until recently I didn't have a home computer) I've put all of my music, legititmately downloaded and paid for over the past three years, on my work computer. Easily this is north of $1000 dollars (look, for me that is a lot and that is also separate from all of my physical CD's I uploaded). I think I have a plan to fix it, gonna take out the hard drive and see if I can recover it. Hopefully it'll work. If not, I'll cry.
PS. I have an iPod Nano, and almost all of the music was in 320kbps (16-20 meg) files so 99% percent is not saved on my iPod. So. Sad.

And on the blog note; Hats of to Dale who has decided, like all good things, that his blog must come to an end. Sad :-(
1) I'm in Los Angeles at the moment. Have been here all weekend but will be returning to DC tonight on the red-eye. Side note: I HATE red-eyes but they are just too damn convenient. Especially for those of us that are a little bit poor on vacation days. The weather here has been phenominal! Yesterday my friend and I went up to Malibu to hang out at the beach for a bit. After that we came back and went to the refurbished Griffith Observatory. It was neat, but there were WAY too many kids around.
2) Halloween (the actual day) wasn't very eventful. Grace Jones nd I played Civilization (shut up, bitches!) and then went to JR's. We only stayed for about 10 mins as it was a SHIT SHOW in there. Haven't seen it that crowded in ages. Line of the evening:
Grace: I see a lot of zombies in here...
Oh wait...those are trolls.
3) The Saturday before Halloween, Taylor Jean, Twin Sister and I headed up into the stix for a party hosted by this guy. Despite the great distances involved, we had a great time. At least from what I can remember. Towards the end things get a bit hazy. Why were things "hazy" you might ask? Well obviously we drank at the party. But not enough to be as wasted as I was. You see, sometime around 3 pm Twin Sister phoned me and the following conversation ensued:
Twin Sister: Hey girl, I'm bored. What are you doing?
Me: Not much, just doing a bunch of laundry. Why, what did you have in mind?
TS: Meh, I don't know. I have a half-handle of vodka here. I could bring it over and we can have afternoon tea?
So Twin Sister comes over, and of course we finish off the half-handle of vodka. And then some. Taylor Jean also stopped by and after we finished off the booze, headed to El Tamarindo for dinner (more drinks there), and then the party. El Tamarindo, BTW, isn't half bad.
4) As I mentioned before, I was in New York a few weeks ago to hang out with the BBC, among others, and to see Tom Stephan. Tom Stephan was obviously out. of. control. Crobar is an awesome space, with a great sound system. Top that off with fierce beats and you hae the recipe for a great time. Since this post seems to be all about posting conversations, let me offer you another one. This one takes place on Tom Stephan's message board:
[Miscellaneous message about the fun times deleted, not important to this post]
Thanks for the good times!
PS. Two quick questions: Can you tell me what the second song is on your AgeHa podcast? And pretty please can you tell me what remix of Diddy-Come To Me you played Sat night?
the second track on radio chumbo 2 is a mashup of the classic strictly rhythm track "raise your house" and "sexy f*ck". and that was the ATFC remix of Diddy handed to me by Diddy himself- did you see him up by the booth?
Hope to see you at Cielo in December!
Say what? Umm, nope. Didn't see him. Def missed that one. Was standing right there too. But as Grace so elequently commented: "Ya, Diddy could've walked right up and shook my hand and still I wouldn't have known..."
5) I'm trying to think if there is anything else. Got some new stuff for the house. The bf and I hit a bump but now we are ok and still going strong. No other big trips planned until Christmas when I go home to SF. Then of course there is Australia and New Zealand in March. Can't wait!

Oh, I'm going to NY this weekend. Should be a ball! Gonna get to hang out with The BBC, meet up with JC and of course...
TOM STEPHAN AT CROBAR!!! I don't know if you've been to Crobar, but the sound system there is off. the. hook! Victor Calderone is going to be coming on at 4 so we may even stay for some of his set.
What else....right. I don't think I need to tell you all how dissappointed I am that Jeffrey one Project Runway. WTF! His designs were good, I'll give him that, but I definitely think Uli should have won. And I definitely like Laura's collection better than Jeffrey's. Can't really argue with Michael coming in fourth though, his collection was terrible! I felt so bad for him because he seemed to have such good potential. Oh well. Can't wait for next season.
PS. This is totally random but if any of you have the following song, could you please give it to me? I used to have it but can't find it, and now I really want it. Thanks!
Funky Green Dogs - Rise Up (Rosabel Unreleased Mix)
I have can get all of the other mixes, just not this one. And this is the one I really want.

2. So remember how I left my cell phone on the airplane in Tokyo, and was seriously angry that I had to buy a new one? You see, turns out I left it burried deep in my luggage, which I happend to discover over the weekend (three weeks after I purchased the phone). Range of emotions: Pissed (that I didn't actually lose my phone, but bought a new one). Then, bewilderment (honestly, how could I not have seen it in my bag, grumble). Then, elation (wait a minute, Cingular has a 30 day return policy, H.O.T). Sure enough I returned the phone and got my money back. And the process was entirely painless.
3. I'm going to vist a friend next month in L.A. I am excited because I haven't been to L.A. in ages and I could use some nice L.A. weather. Side note: I can only handle the city for a few days (max three) and then I begin to hate it. Los Angeles is like New York for me, love to visit, but could never live there. And before you bitches say "well I guess he just doesn't like big cities then." Not true I say. I just don't like New York or L.A.
4. I am so excited for the first half of the Project Runway season finale tonight. I REALLY hope Jeffrey gets kicked off for cheating. That would make me happy. Oh, along with every one else, I'm seriously disappointed in Michael's collection.
5. Why oh why can't the election be held tomorrow. Four weeks is way too much time for the Republicans to do something devious to boost their poll numbers.

Snack - This is Not Rock & Roll (Robbie Rivera Afterhours Mix)
Thursday, October 05, 2006
ABC News declined to release what follows next, instead summarizing it as follows: "The exchange continues in which Foley and the teen both appear to describe having sexual orgasms" (bolding mine).
We now resume our previously scheduled programming:For some reason, I just can't get all outraged at what the congressman did. Disgusted, sure. But outraged, nah.
However, I'm perfectly happy to let the voting public, particularly republicans, get riled up and decide to abadon their party in favor of the democrats. Who knows, maybe they'll even topple the Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert. That would be icing on the cake! I do find it kind of ironic that the major improprieties of a closeted gay republican may contribute, perhaps significantly, to the downfall of the Republican Party (a party that generally hates gays) in the mid-term elections.

Colliding With Death at 37,000 Feet, and Living
SÃO JOSE DOS CAMPOS, Brazil, Oct. 1 — It had been an uneventful, comfortable flight.
With the window shade drawn, I was relaxing in my leather seat aboard a $25 million corporate jet that was flying 37,000 feet above the vast Amazon rainforest. The 7 of us on board the 13-passenger jet were keeping to ourselves.
Without warning, I felt a terrific jolt and heard a loud bang, followed by an eerie silence, save for the hum of the engines....

Tokyo was a blast! On Sunday Suman and I wandered around Herajuku and Omotesando and did some shopping. Unfortunately neither of us found anything that we liked. Oh well... Sunday night we met up with Suman's friends Dan and PJ (who were both uber fun people) and headed over to Ageha for a big gay dance party. I was a blown away by how big the place was. I guess I really shouldn't be surprised given how big Tokyo is. We stayed at the club till about 4am. Considering I had about 6 red bull and vodka's I probably could've stayed for another 2 hours. I don't normally drink those but I have to say it is one mean combo. On monday Suman and I had lunch and off I went to the airport for my flight back. I actually slept almost the whole way on my first flight which was really nice. The second one I wasn't so lucky but at least it was only four hours. Grace Jones and the BF picked me up from the airport and we stopped at the Olive Garden on our way back into the city. Mayhaps I ordered the tour of italy. Mayhaps I've got a big pile of leftovers in my fridge at home...
