First and foremost, let me apologize ahead of time. This blog has been completely done on my iPhone 😁. It appears my computer won’t start anymore 😢. But shall we see how this goes? If any staff see any blaring errors, feel free to jump in and edit 😏. Or everyone can point them out and laugh at me
On Monday Cia was here to bring us the January Classic Author:
If that wasn’t enough to entice you, how about checking out the January Classic Author Excerpt:
Then on Thursday, Renee
Fantastic days walking. The weather was great sunny and bright but not too hot to walk comfortably. Eight of us in the end took the train to our starting point and walked around 12 miles into the countryside along the Vanguard Way. This is my favourite time of year for walking, after the summer heatwave but before the serious rains start. It was nice enuf to day to walk in shorts and a t-shirt but good little scouts that we are we all had fleeces and zippable cargoes in case we needed them.
Weve had a nice little chat and i got a hug. He seems to be feeling better just now. Ive told him about the site, so he said he mght have a little look while he's here
Oh I saw the year book photo of the guy's he likes.. Cute. Least now I have a face to hunt down and threaten!!!
If you msn me and dont get a reply in the next couple days it'll be because he's on the laptop. (little bitty shy )
I'm looking forward to this. The weather looks good sunny but not too hot to walk at all. Chris came over last night and we bombed through his translation homework. The way we did it was this. Chris sat at the PC and translated a line or two straight into Word while I sat on the bed with the Loeb bi-lingual checking his translation and making suggestions if he got it wrong or it looked like it could be better. It took a couple of hours but it got done. Chris stayed - he snored all night li
If you guys read my earlier posts you would know that I made a new friend named Chaz and I made an ass of myself. Well I went to a local bar and we hung out. He is a really cool and genuine person and seems to be interested in alot of the stuff I do. Unfortunately I had to explain to him why I hate his brother but he just shrugged his shoulders and said that he too hates his brother sometimes.
So we're having a good time sharing some laughs when a couple of extremly beautiful boys walk up to
Well for the past few days i have been feeling a sort of dull pain in my left leg, at first i thought it was knee that was acting up again (accident during PE caused it to weaken) it wasnt that because the pain was not from the front. It was more in the back near the heel. Well after a few idea, i came up with that i might have damaged my Achilles
Yay! Its friday!
I had classes this morning and now I actually get the afternoon off for once. I'm not really sure how that happened but its the last time it will happen for a very, very long time. I wish I could say I'm making the most of my day but I came home after class, ate something and then tried to do some reading only to find I was falling asleep at like 4:30 in the afternoon. How sad is that?
On the way home I noticed J driving in the car in front of me. It surprised me
Wow, so where to start?
Well, I got an email from my little brother who went off to college today. It made me smile, alot! Here is an excerpt:
Hey there brother. Hello there sister. Just thought I'd drop in and say hello. Plus, I thought I'd give you an update on my schooling. I don't have very many set grades yet but I just got my first math test back (we took it yesterday) and it had 7 questions worth 10 points each (with different values for the different parts of the question). I g
Well for anyone interested Chapters 1-5 of Ian's Song are available in the Shared Member's section of GA (http://members.gayauthors.org/). At the moment there's no inter-chapter navigation b/c I'm an idiot and sent Myr the word files rather than the html files. Sooo that's going to be corrected soon, along with a typo or five.
EDIT: I'm mirrored the story here (http://www.geocities.com/kendercleric/ians_song/intro.html) until Myr can get the "corrected" html files
2 weeks of my father bugging me, guilting me, and all around annoying the everlasting hell out of me - I finally gave in and "gave him" a couple hundred bucks.
Notice the use of the quotes around gave him? Yes...that's because he and I had something of a lenguistic battle. I said "Loan you" and said "gave me". We did this for about an hour on the phone, but by the time I hung up I was so sick of it all I just agreed that I gave him the money.
Somehow that didn't figure into
OK. Here's the thing. Yesterday I decided that I wasn't going to stress about my friend Chris being able to spend the weekend with me, Noah and the half dozen other friends we'd got organised. I'd just let go and plan without worrying about him being there. So today when I got to school and saw him I left alone the question of what's going on this weekend or whether he'd done any homework. It shocked me a bit that when I first spoke to him I could see the anxiety in his eyes. I felt pretty
So last night my Mum came over. She had Chris's bro Jon with her since he was bored at home and wanted to see us.
he came in the flat and said no more than 4 words in the hour they were here. At the time I put this down to the stress of dealing with his Mum and dad's break up, and maybe a bit down to the fact he knows his Mum's a total bi*ch.
So last night I texted him the following...
11:30 PM Me: Jon, you ok bro you seemed down tonite.
I waited for like 2 hours with no reply
My Friend sent this to me and I thought it was great.
Ten reasons why people oppose gay marriage:
1) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural
like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.
2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that
hanging around tall people will make you tall.
3) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never
to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars,
5 Chapters of Ian's Song are complete. I'll have them up and readable somewhere soon.
The story has pretty much sucked the energy out of my for now. I'm going to rest a day then finish it up.
On a non-writing note my life has become boring. With the EX officially on the "do not acknowledge" list the drama is gone. YAY! So now I've been able to get back to work and actually accomplish some things. 2 years of a relationship down the drain is starting to seem like a small price to pay to
I spent two hours yesterday evening in the dojo (aikido traning hall) getting knocked about. I just didn't train properly over the summer and now I have my reward. I ache. Fortunately for me I hadn't been away from the dojo for three months or I would have been back to a white belt until given leave to resume at my grading. But then maybe that would have been a good thing! I warmed up before the class started so I was at least mobile. The instruction was on blocking front free style blows.
I had coffee again with J and as before I have all these things running around in my head...
People have a definition of success and they tend to judge everyone by that standard. In America, or at least where I live, most people see success as a house with a two car garage and a new car every two years. I am at war with this image. One part of me sees it as stability, as routine, as never having to worry or even think about decisions or tasks too far beyond the margin. Another part of
OK, a very mixed quality lunch menu...
carrot salad/melon/radishes with butter/goat's cheese
leg of lamb/turkey goulash
parsely potatoes/green beans/lentils 'auvergnates'
fromage frais with jam/apple/pear/banana
No vegetarian entree. There's a meal there from the bits and pieces but I'm off out. It's a long lunch for us because we have a free class next so we're going to a falafel joint called Maoz. You haven't eaten falafel until you've had theirs. And they have a website!
Had a long talk with Noah and my dad last night about the messages he's been receiving. Our dad was more upset than we were I think, upset enough to ask us not to show mum any of the messages. We both agreed that it had to be reported and that if Noah didn't want to do then we'd have to do it. Noah understood and he's registered a complaint and sent copies of the PMs to the website owners.
Thanks very much to James and WVSailor for excellent advice and support.
Dad had a really good
It was a wonderful day outside today. When I mean wonderful I mean windy and a bit cold, but that's just me. I also love it when it rains that's another story altogether. So I sat outside in between classes a friend joined me a few minutes later. We spoke for a bit just catching up because we hadn't seen each other in a while. When someone just randomly sits with us.
Now I'm a very paranoid person and I get nervous so I was already itching to leave when I looked at this boys face and neck an
I started my day with a much needed hair cut. I find it funny that I have had more hair cuts since I cut off 15 inches back in January then I had in the last five years. I love the feeling of a new hair cut. My hair grows so fast so it isn't long before I need another one.
I spent the rest of the afternoon taking a nap before I had dinner with my friends and one of my friend's roommates. It was a nice dinner. We ate a lot of pasta like usual and my friend I split a bottle of merlot. I don't
I posted in my last blog a list of stories I am currently working on. However, as of right now all of them are on hold as I write a new story. This is one that is beating the inside of my brain to get out, so I'm going to work on it exclusively until it's complete. Here is a small portion of the already long story. Enjoy.
It was his eyes that spoke for us both. The emotions of the moment hung like a miasma in the air robbing either of us of the ability to speak. It was his eyes that spoke
Today was not a good day for vegetarians in the school dining room. It's unusual for there not to be a decent meal for us but today's menu was just ... ordinaire. Anyway, that provided me with the perfect excuse to gather the gang and go out.
School is very close to one of my favourite museums which has a few good places to eat. There's a sit down restaurant but much more fun are the self-serve cafes. We bundled into one and just hoovered up all the food. Amazingly the standard is reall
Some of you have heard me gushing about my brother Noah. I couldn't want a better younger brother. He's smart; he's brave; he's decent. He's just 14 and I know I'm a bit more protective than I should be but I can't help myself. I love him to bits.
Anyway, Noah's out. He had some troubled times before he joined our family but he's getting on great now. His school friends are cool people on the whole and he belongs to the same gay youth group I used to go to. He's encountered homophobia
With having had AML and due to it some other stuff, I live in constant panic to catch COVID. I can't wait to get the vaccine so I can have my life back.
Seeing people protesting against the lockdown without wearing a mask it's difficult not to wish all kinds of bad upon them.
I wish you all the best, K.C.
Thanks guys! It's been like watching a car crash in slow motion.
Our daughter and her boyfriend both got it too, but recovered really quick with no lasting effects. We were blessed that my hubby never got it even with all 4 of us in the same house!
I went through a similar kidney stone incident 20 years ago. Except, for me, they took me from CT Scan straight into emergency surgery. Though I was out of the hospital after two nights. I found out that I'm allergic to Demerol, which is kind of funny.
I was in the ER in pain with said kidney stone. They gave be Demerol and it was near instant I projectile vomited on the doctor. (I didn't get the nurse that gave the injection as she was off to the side.) So, apparently, projectile vomit
My nephew had it along with his wife who was pregnant at the time with their first child. They are fine now even though my nephew has problems breathing still. He also has had asthma all his life so wit the covid he contracted and the asthma too then you can imagine what he is going through even though they test negative now.
I am so sorry you had to go through with that and I don't want it either. I never even thought covid was like the flu. Like my stepson and his wife thinks. I wear a ma
