It's been awhile since I blogged. Sorry about that! I'll try not to let it happen again.
Woke up this morning, buzzed my teeth and walked over to the City Cafe for a cup of "wake-up juice" and I saw them shoot the new Infiniti car commercial in front of the George Washinton Monument in Mount Vernon. I saw the cameras and ran over to this woman and asked "What are you filming?!?!" all excitedly 'cause I thought maybe it was a new John Waters movie or something. No such luck. Still, it's neat that they chose Charm City to film their commercial. B'more is the place to be!
Gay Pride Day!!!!
Actually it's "Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Day" which is an awfully long title, if you ask me--but nobody asked me, did they?)
What can I say about Pride? Tons of all kinds of people, drag queens, the smell of sausages and soft pretzels, people selling anything with a rainbow, lambda, or pink triangle on it.
It was OK, I guess. I had fun. It was more exciting when I first came out, I think. I've been to every Baltimore Pride since 1988---kind of over it a little, but it's still nice to see all my "gay brothers and sisters" out and about having fun.
G. went to the Block Party after all and his friend from New York and his friend's new boyfriend came down, which was very nice. They are so much in love and it's very obvious. It's very refreshing to see that. It reminds me of when G. and I first got together.
Saw alot of people I know (I'm not gonna list 'em all here--you know who you are!). Didn't see a trace of G.'s "boyfriend"---which was a very good thing!
Sunday was the day of the "festival" and G. and I had to work because it was Father's Day, so we didn't go to that.
G. put together an impromptu (sp?) dinner party the other day, and kind of sprung it on me suddenly. It was unexpected, but
a very pleasant surprise.
Nothing else exciting is going on right now.
That may change at any moment, of course.
