For those of you that care, I'm flying non-stop from Dulles which a) rocks and b) makes the trip so much easier. I really hate the jet-lagged rush through the Frankfurt airport, or worse, London Heathrow in a vein attempt to make my 90 min connection. My flight'll be even better thanks to Kiat and the mutitude of drink coupons he gave me for the flights. Yes, even United has started charging for booze across the pond. Sad :-(
PS. Not sure I'll have internet access so I may not post until I get back next Tuesday.

Fortunately, the phone also like to turn itself back on randomly, as it did this morning, and I again have phone service. As soon as I get back from Brussels I'm def getting a new one. This leaves me in a bit of a dilemma. Do I just go for the free phone (my contract has been up for ages, remember the last phone was a boot-leg so didn't have to renew) or do I go for the new Slivr.

1) Do not buy a Siemens cell phone. They suck more than Showgirls.
2) Do not buy your cellphone bootleg-style. Yes kiddies, I wanted this phone so badly (though it was only sold in Europe) that I went to a ghetto store up on Conn. Ave and bought a Latvian variety. O-b-v-i lesson learned.

I remember getting to JR's at 5:30
I vaguely remember the end of all-you-can-drink
I vaguely remember falling off my barstool. Oooops.
I don't really remember the BF yelling at me on the corner of 17th and R.
I vaguely remember not caring
I'm not really sure if the BF yelled at me or not. But I'm just going to make that assumption since it would be par for the course.

Except that one time that me and Mimi decided we were done with DIK bar but not our drinks so we decided to hide them under our coats and take them to McDonalds. That was hot.

I knew, of course, that our views on a lot of things would be vastly different. What caught me off guard, however, was the number of things on which I found myself agreeing with him. For example the virtues of incrementalism, or the pathetic state of the Democratic leadership. Now look, I'm a liberal just as much as the next guy, but don't you all (those of you that follow politics anyway) cringe just a little when Nancy or Harry open their mouths?
On to incrementalism. I'd like to compare the fight for gay marriage to trying to cook a frog. I've never actually cooked a frog but I've heard this is how it works. Anyway, you've got a frog. You want to cook it. You boil some water and drop the frog in. Lo and behold, the frog jumps out as obvi the water is to hot. Now, if you drop the frog in cold water and slowly bring it to a boil, it won't notice and eventually you'll have cooked frog. In my mind, this is similar to the fight for gay marriage. If you try and throw the public head first into full blown gay marriage (ie. boiling water) they'll recoil in fear and suddenly we have states passing amendments left and right outlawing that sort of thing. On the other hand, if you start out with little things like hospital visitation or ingeritance rights, and slowly work your way up, the public might just not notice. Sadly, however, its probably too late for that. The bright spot we (the gays) have is that the younger generations just don't seem to care as much about this issue.
Anyway, Just my 2 cents...

On the plus side, I got my tickets for Boston at the end of April. Tom Stephan, here we come!
PS. The Mean Girls are thinking of going to Toronto for pride this year. For the past few years we've done San Francisco but we were thinking of doing something different. Has any body been to Toronto, or even better, been there for pride. Is it worth the trip?

Two guys are in an open relationship. The only stipultation is no an@l sex. Well, unfortunately, my friend kinda broke that stipulation. Now his bf says he cheated, but had he just blown a guy it would've been fine. So my question is:
A) Does the "no an@l sex" part seem like a legitimate stipulation, and my friend cheated? Or...
B) Is an open relationship an open relationship, doesn't matter which hole?
I expect comments (especially from lots of you people that I know read but never post a comment, thanks).
PS. I'll let you know what I think tomorrow.
UPDATE: Thanks for the responses guys, and I'm so glad that Grace, Twin Sister and Chaka Kahn (aka Chocolatte) responded.
Ok so I lied, I meant to say I'll let you know what I think on Friday. Oooops. Anyway here's my take. First of all, my friend was very honest about the situation and came clean the next day. So he should get credit for that. Secondly, I realize that they had an agreement, and that my friend broke it. But really, I think the only thing my friend is guilty of is breaking an agreement, not cheating. Seriously, to say "you can go blow someone but can't f*ck them?" No. Either you can hook up with someone else, or you can't. Why should the difference between not cheating and cheating hinge on which hole you use?
Double Update: For more thoughts and musings on the subject. Click here, or here.
No ma'am! I guess they need a sign, "no eating, no drinking, and no jacking off." Whatevs, I decide I can ignore it by reading the paper and turning the music up a bit louder. Not 10 seconds later he sits up, unbuttons his pants and whips it out. Right there. ON. THE. METRO. I mean he seriously gets the whole thing, balls and all, out of his pants. Obvi I'm not trying to get some random stain on my clothes this early in the morning so at the next stop me and about 3 other people get up and move to the next car. This was at Rhode Island Ave. I think they finally got him at Gallery Place as we waited there for a minute and there were lots of cops on the platform.
This is why I need to stop riding metro.
PS. This man did not look homeless, or crazy. Just unconcerned that there was a rush-hours load of people surrounding him.

So I filled out my taxes and was expecting a decent refund. Not large, but not in the $20 range either. Not that it really matters. You see, last year I filed my DC taxes and found out that I owed them just over $100. Not really sure how that worked out, or why. I mean, isn't it their job to collect enough money from my paycheck? Anyway, the problem is: I may not have ever paid DC the money. Ooooops. Well it seems like they may have taken matters into their own hands. I went to check the status of my refund and it said "Your tax refund was direct deposited on March 10, 2006." No ma'am, it most certainly has not. But then I looked a little closer and it also said this:
Please read the following information related to your tax situation:
* The amount of my federal payment (e.g., income tax refund) has been reduced ("offset"). Why?
* Tax Topic 203, Failure to Pay Child Support, Federal Non-Tax and State Income Tax Obligations
Well now they are some crafty bitches. Oh well, I guess I can't really complain. At least I get to wash my hands of the whole situation.

Me: Oh? What movie?
Kate: I really want to see The Hills Have Eyes.
Me: Eww! That movie looks disgusting! I'm sure you guys will have a ball.
Kate: Well that's the thing. Mike really wants to see Failure to Launch. So I think we are gonna see that instead.
Me: Wait what? You want to see the gory slasher flick and Mike wants a romantic comedy?

"MANALAPAN, Fla. -- The musician Yanni was arrested at his home after an alleged domestic dispute with his girlfriend, authorities said.
Yanni, whose legal name is John Yanni Christopher, was arrested early Friday and faces a domestic battery charge, according to a police report."The article claimes that Yanni asked his girlfriend to leave and as she started to pack her things Yanni threw her to the ground and started beating her with his healing crystals, while screaming "heal with these b!tch!"
Ok, so I made up the part about the crystals, but still. What is the world coming to? First Richard Simmons, now Yanni...
PS. This is the money quote from the Simmons police report:
“Farney said that he had no intention of hitting Simmons back or doing anything except contacting the police. Farney was not injured in anyway and said that Simmons did not slap him that hard. Farney told me that he does some cage fighting and that he knew that he was much more powerful than Simmons.”

BTW: I can't believe that "It's hard out here for a pimp" won best original song. I totally agree that it was the best of the three but I'm just surprised that the Acadamy voted for it.

I want to preface this post by saying that I'm not catholic, or religious, but that usually I try and give up something for lent because I want to do something good for my body, and this is a good opportunity.
Anyway, so I was trying to figure out what I should give up.
Smoking? A good contender. But I'm not quite ready yet. Yes b*tches I know I said I'd quite after Japan. But you see, the duty free carton was SOOOO cheap, and I can't let those cigarettes go to waste.
Drinking? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. When hell freezes over and satan gives free sleigh rides. I once had a friend give up booze for lent. It was not pretty. She probably should have just stayed home for 40 days. Although I did think about giving up my fifth drink and making it a water. "Oh no girl, I can't have another one. I gave up my fifth drink for lent. But look. You let me know when you're on number six. Ok?"
This left me with one final thing to give up. That's right. McDonalds. Now as some of you may have gathered from previous blog posts, or have seen me at McDonalds, you'll know that Chris+booze+Large Double Quarter Pounder Meal (w/ Diet coke, obvi) = White+Rice. So in the interests of personal health, I will no longer be going to McDonalds after JR's. Or at any time for that matter. And don't worry, I really don't like other fast food places so there is no chance of me switching to BK or Wendy's.
OBVI this will all go out the window if budgetary constraints come into play. Let me tell you, many meals can be had off the dollar menu.
PS. Sorry Dale for ripping off your Getty Images, I just couldn't find a good one anywhere else.
PPS. Hateful comments will be removed. Thanks, -Management
PPPS. Twin Sister, you keep you mouth shut.
