A Little Boy to Start the Week

This is inspired by Lemmy who reminded me that I have not indulged in one of my dirty little pleasures in a while.
I love Boy George! Seriously.. I can't get enough of the Boy.

My True Nature

My best gay recently accused me of being a little too fixated on Shaun White.

The following is a transcript of an actual converstation.

Chris: You know he's a midget

Me: really - how tall?

Chris: I would say leprechaun sized, but I'll look it up....He's 5'8", but the baggy clothes don't help his cause.
And you are also betraying your Fruit Fly Ness, you should be making out at the bar with and attending Thanksgiving at Johnny Weir's house!

Me: can't this be just like college? I will do all of that and then go home to the skinny, pot smoking straight guy

Chris: Exactly. Are we allowed to laugh about places that people shouldn't smoke pot yet?

Me: how can we not?

In order to redem myself - I present the following video for your enjoyment. Of Course, I adore Johnny!!!!

Family Dinners....

I had dinner with the in laws last night and as always it was entertaining to say the least.
The major topic of discussion was that my 15-year-old nephew was caught in the possession of condoms. GASP!!!
My sister-in-law, or SIL, was okay with the condoms themselves, but not the fact that he left them in the basement rec. room where his four-year-old sister could (and did) find them. Her concern was that he might be sneaking girls in the basement door after everyone else was asleep. Something that she, the hubby, and their younger brother all did at one point or another in their youth.
I totally supported her on this one.
The mother-in-law, or the MIL, or the Holy Mother,on the other hand was aghast that he would have them at all. I am not sure if it was the sex or the Catholic stance on birth control that had her rosary beads in a knot. Since I am one that really lays things out there, I simply stated that there in NOTHING that she can do to stop him from having sex if that is what he wants to do and she should be happy that he is obviously taking precautions.
I did chicken out of telling her that the hubby and I have offered to supply such items. Don't ask, don't tell. We may have in fact subsidized the recent nookie.
In other news, my 9-year-old niece suggested her mom find a boyfriend on ebay and Patrick's "band", who have no name and have yet to have a practice, are thinking about "touring North America" this summer. With regards to the first story, I think he is only in it for the groupies.

whatever happens will be

I love this song... it instantly takes me back to a much simpler time in my life. When I am having a bad day - today is one of those days - I listen to this song and am transported back to Mikal's dorm room on the 12th floor. Curling up with "the kids" as we called ourselves and talking about nothing.
We were the original "Friends"
Mikal, Darcey, Angel, Jenn, Trudi, and Jill - no matter the time or distance, I love you all as much today as I did back in that dream called the early 90s.
