Right Back Where We Started From...

So I was just about to shut down when I came across a link to www.dynadouche.com - After noticing the little "music" widget in the lower left of the (amazingly well-designed) page, I paused last.fm and lo and behold, Simply the Best, by our early AM scion Tina Turner...

Seriously, what were they thinking with this video? And what were they thinking using that song for an asshose?

One More Thing...

Boom Boom Build the Room Tear It Up, Eat Me Out

Building a condo from scratch is a motherfucker, and that's all I'm going to say about it for now. I don't know how people do this for a living. My hands are gross and cut and nasty, and I totally lost a glass plug somewhere along the way...

However, my first week of temporary Poconos-based Hell is going to end quite well - My Labor Day Weekend plans:

Friday afternoon: Back to the 191xx for some drinks out.
Saturday morning: Leave for NYC with XXX, then that evening, off to Alegria Casino. I haven't picked out an outfit for a Labor Day circuit party in forever. I should probably get on that. (I'm totally loving the Universo Alegria track by Tony Moran on their main page - give it a listen)
Sunday morning: Leave NYC, quick refresher in NJ; head to Rehoboth for some lesbian mansion party - I'd post the totally bank sat images, but I think it would be an invasion of privacy. Rachael Sage will be performing.
Monday - Recovery.

Planet Distance

I'm in the middle of setting up my home office and doing construction and trying to find where I put everything in my mad dash out of my condo...

This is how I'm starting off my day - how bout you?

1. i got into the graduate program at Jefferson. Now I have about a week to figure out the financials and get set to go to skewl again. crazy. but zomg i'm not a total loser! yayz!
2. the acceptance letter/kit/thing had some weird 'unable to determine forward' sticker on it - this is the second piece of mail i've received like that - i'm getting nervous because i'm expecting an important cheque and it should have been here by now - i hope it's not lost in postal service ether. i would have a mega sad. i left a note for my mailman, so let's hope that does something.
zomg speaking of mailmen i was at the new residence the other day and saw maildude - holy 'special delivery' fantasy, late 20's, chinstrap/goatee/bic'd head/tan/muscles... telecommuting might be awesome after all.
3. this is really cute (click for bigger)

En défense de la barbe

I was in a corporate Hell meeting last week, and our CEO 'broke the ice' by telling a story about how he was at a customer site - some factory in Nowhere, PA - and was explaining healthcare economics or something to the workers at the factory. He was trying to motivate us ("the Company") by demonstrating that if you "get your hands dirty, you can achieve great things." Even after all of that corporate motivational treacle, I was still listening, and I heard something totally offensive - "So there I was, surrounded by all of these rough guys with beards who were looking at me like I was this educated..."

I'm sorry, WHAT?

The assumption here is that because these men had beards, they were "rough" and (we can infer from what followed) uneducated. I've been hearing for the past 10 years to "shave," "you look like a convict," "why would you want that on your face?"

Because I think it's hot. Not because I'm a "bear," or a "wolf" or some other subculture label. I just like the facial hair. A whole lot. In fact, it's incredibly rare for me to be attracted to guys without facial hair. I don't think I've ever dated one.

I just wanted to bitch about that for a second.

I don't mind ignorant pricks like him thinking I'm rough. I'll even prove your point by kicking your ass.

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." - Pablo Picasso

You can't trust anyone, especially if they're clarifying butter

From CNN:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Famed chef Julia Child shared a secret with Supreme Court Justice Arthur Goldberg and Chicago White Sox catcher Moe Berg at a time when the Nazis threatened the world.

While Julia Child was cooking pheasants, she was also part of an international spy ring during World War II.

While Julia Child was cooking pheasants, she was also part of an international spy ring during World War II.

They served in an international spy ring managed by the Office of Strategic Services, an early version of the CIA created in World War II by President Franklin Roosevelt.

The full secret comes out Thursday, all of the names and previously classified files identifying nearly 24,000 spies who formed the first centralized intelligence effort by the United States. The National Archives, which this week released a list of the names found in the records, will make available for the first time all 750,000 pages identifying the vast spy network of military and civilian operatives.

You knew she wasn't all about artichokes and flounced blouses, right? Right?


Hey, Queerbait...

If you are a legacy Philadelphia homo and not a recent NYC transplant, I hope you cancelled your 12th Street Gym membership when you found out their co-owner made large campaign donations to Douchebag Santorum.

If you don't read Towleroad (which you should. bad homo. bad.) then wrap your mouth around this before you log on again:

McCain Takes $2300 Contribution from Owner of Gay Sex Site Manhunt

It appears John McCain has accepted the maximum individual campaign donation from the owner of America's largest gay sex hook-up website.

Swallow that, Right Now!

technicaly malhunktion

the beach photos aren't uploading properly from the bb. fuck it. i don't have time right now to move things between SD cards and what not. Rehoboth was awesome and typically wallet-breaking Friday night with a serious boat jaunt the next morning - I worked some magic and XXX brought Brian down and we all went out.... this morning there was some Myanmar-esque bullshit going on - HAIL! It was crazeex10e10. Tank is now a welcome guest at the Iguana lounge.

I've got more in me, but after 3 hours of driving back to Philadelphia in serious traffic, now I'm off to the parental units' place in the Poconos, to await delivery of the furniture for my office there. Ugh. I can't believe this is happening At least Kaeti got a place in the city that I can go to on weekends, the lesbians have offered me their downstairs couch, Jawnny and Bri are backup couch, and ... I don't know... But I know more than three consecutive days there at any point will actually kill me. Or I'll kill me. One of the two.


Just like daddy.

Shuffle Gives Us Great Gifts

I haven't heard this song in forever, and forgot it existed, until my iPod just shuffled it up:

"Wash It - The Coochie Song"

Oh my god
Do us all a favour
Wash your coochie honey

Oh my god
I smell something stinkyyyy
Oh my god
Oh I'm so tired of tuna if you know what I mean
I would be so happy if you had a ding-a-ling
I need something meatier than what you have Miss Thing

Do us all a favour
Try keeping yourself clean
Summer's Eve
FDS honey, hide that stinky smell

Wash your coochie Ivory
I'm so free when you wash the coochie honey
I beg for you to wash the coochie honey

Girl you got to wash it

Oh no, what is this?
Something down here smells like fish
When's the last time you used the sink?
Ewww, your booty stink!
I hate to tell you, but I don't wanna smell you...

Oh Miss Thing you smell so funny,
Won't you wash the coochie honey?
I'm so free when you wash the coochie honey
Wash the coochie honey


Still Packing...

Stupid shit keeps happening with my father's health - surgeries keep getting bumped around. it's kinda aggravating.

Is there a brightkite widget i can put on here? that might be fun.

Worked from home yesterday after I didn't have to go to the hospital, Jawnny came over for some time on the ultra-queer Lido deck to sun ourselves, read while I finished office stuff, then BriBri joined us... Then my neighbour joined us. Then Rudy came over and we made him serve us beer while wearing my red Colt Jockstrap. Geoff later joined us, but I think I was well into my cups at that point.

All in all, we blew through quite a bit of champers, imported beer, and gin. Especially for a Tuesday.

This is making me wet this morning:



I realised I am a member of at least the following communities, if not more:


and about 10,000 others i don't remember until they're in my face... oy.

Apparently they blocked EBOS at work. Kind of amusing - no one reads this, but my job thinks it's not work suitable. Lame.

I'm packing my apartment today. The move isn't for several weeks, but I'm UPSing most of the boxes to my parents' with my corporate account. I mean, it's a 'work-related' move, right?

i've been drunk on gin and tonics since 1:30, after returning from jersey. i spent 15 minutes online doing work this morning, and did yet another charity event coordination.

what the fuck did you do today?
