My Marvelous Monday

I like alliteration; can you tell? :boy:

So today totally rocked!

 

First off I was doing the evening/night shift at work so I got to sleep really late (2:00pmish). Secondly, I'm well!!! WOO HOO, I was sick for a little more than a week and it totally sucked! Plus I hadn't been sick in awhile so I guess that made it seem extra less than fun.

 

So anyway I went into work, and I was running late because it was rainy and traffic was bad. Which seems like that wouldn't be a good thing, but it totally was because I just called and told them I'd be about 10 minutes late because of the rain - which they were fine with - and I was actually really enjoying the drive and the radio station I was listening too! :D

 

So then I got to work and yeah it was so much fun tonight! I had a nice chat with the scheduling manager when I got there - he's such a nice guy - and I told him how I wouldn't be able to work Thursdays and Fridays anymore 'cause I wanna do that sub. teaching thing. Then I didn't get any tables right away so I was having this lovely chat with one of my co-workers, Mia. She's so hot! There's like 5 or 6 really hot guys that work there (more on one of them later), and her. Anyway, I was SO stunned because we were talking and she mentioned her girlfriend! She totally didn't seem like the lesbian type! And I've usually got really good "lesbiandar". So were were talking about clubs and stuff, which gave me the perfect opportunity to make sure she knew I was gay too because I brought up a couple of gay clubs. It was really funny because it was totally one of those situations where we were each very subtly coming out to the other person, but each trying to act like we already knew when were really excited to find out...if that makes any sense. LOL, anyway it would have made a very fascinating social study **Puts on his sociologist hat**. So yeah you'd think that since I was actually kinda attracted to the girl I'd be disappointed if anything about her turning out to be a lesbian...but no, I was actually really happy and excited about it. I guess because I knew nothing was ever going to happen anyway. Besides I love lesbians! They're so awesome! Anyway she said she'd call me next time she and her girlfriend went to this cool lesbian club she was talking about. She said some guys do go too, which yeah hopefully, but whatever, if anything I'll have a really good time because I love hanging out with lesbians :P . I've often thought that I'm like the opposite of a "fag hag"...I guess I'm a "dyke dude" :boy: (obviously I saw that with the utmost amount of respect and affection).

 

So yeah speaking of cool lesbians I also had fun chatting with my friend Melissa, BUT on the downside she told me that Megan was sick :(:thumbdown: . So yeah I sent her a text message after work and I'll call her tomorrow. Megan is the friend from the GLBT group that got me the job in the first place. She's so super-nifty :wub: . OHH guess what?! Well I'll just tell you so I don't get a bunch of comments that just say "what?" :P:boy: She and Jesse are getting married (or commitment ceremonied) this summer! :D YAY! I'm so happy for them! And guess what else?! (well again I'll just tell ya :boy: ) they won this free honeymoon package from the bridal shop!

 

Okay so anyway work itself was pretty nice too! It was slow tonight, but I still did pretty well for tips and I really liked all my people tonight. I had the nicest chat with this one lady! :)

 

OHHH and best of all, I flirted a bunch with the guy I like...okay like I said there's like 5 really adorable guys at work. But two of them are straight...well one of them is definitely straight, the other one I just have no reason to assume he's gay, one of them I just can't figure out :huh: (Eric from my last blog, the one that no one seems to know about lol), one of them already has a boyfriend, and that leaves this guy, Brandon. He's really cute and he's ALWAYS smiling, which I just think is super-adorable. So yeah we've been flirting back and forth the last several times we've worked together. It's really fun :D I think I might ask him out soon(ish). We just need to have at least one more really good, fairly long, conversation first. Which is tough because in the past we haven't been working in the same area, so really just the fact that we've talked AT ALL is a good sign, but hopefully soon he'll be my partner. HAHA okay, so that sounds way different than I mean it. See they call the person that works in the same section as you your "partner", and of course you get more time to talk to your actual partner. LOL so hopefully he'll be my partner :boy: . Anyway I feel really good about this.

 

So after I was done with my shift I decided I'd actually eat an employee meal (my first time). We get 50% off which is a really nice deal, but I've been trying to eat healthy. I figured I might as well splurge though so I got my favourite (from when I used to come in as a customer at the ones in Lafayette and Baton Rouge), the stuffed chicken Marsala with the Tuscana soup and a slice of black tie mousse cake for desert! YUM! It was awesome! Now normally a bunch of servers are all eating around the same time because general several people decide to eat after their shifts, but unfortunately tonight everyone that got off just went straight home. However, on the bright side my favourite manager, not the one I mentioned earlier a diferent one (yeah it's really kinda confusing), decided to keep my company while I ate, so we had a nice chat. I must say I got quite a surprise though! I always thought he was gay (it seriously seems like there's about a 50-50 gay/straight split there), but we were chatting and I was talking about how I wanted to go to the university of Houston next fall for grad. school and he said "oh yeah, my girlfriend is getting her master's there". Of course I was totally stunned and my first thought was "Whoa! You mean you're straight?! :blink: ", but fortunately I didn't say that and instead came up with the fairly generic "how does she like it there?". Also, I never realized how useful it was to be eating when someone gives you surprising news! If your mouth drops open all you have to do is stick some food in it and they're none the wiser! Anyway I guess I'd better stop flirting with him! :P

 

Okay so then I left work, and went to Blockbuster to return a couple of movies. I'd rented the latest Star Wars movie, Revenge of the Sith, which was, IMO, by far the best of the new movies. I'd seen it in theaters and been wanting to see it again. It made me sad though, and I usually like it when movies make me sad, but this was more of a bad, unfulfilled kinda sad, but anyway I still enjoyed the movie. I also rented "Another Gay Movie", which oh my gosh you guys totally need to see! It was SOOOO funny. It's basically a gay parody of "American Pie", with some parodying of "Trick" and "Broken Hearts Club", it was just so outrageous, and fun. It was also really raunchy, and the guys in it are really hot so yeah that was fun too :P

 

Anyway, while I was there I thought "hey, I think I'll get one of those monthly membership thingies where you can rent an unlimited amount of movies". So I did. I was really upfront with the guy too; I told him I basically just wanted to watch as many movies as I could in a month and then not continue the membership :P:boy: . Anyway he suggested I do the online membership because they were having a free month's trial :D , I also got the in store membership too though, because you have to wait for the other movies to come in the mail and I felt bad not paying for ANYTHING, plus I'd only have been able to get one movie tonight with JUST the online membership (because they want you to get them by mail), but by getting the in store membership too I was able to get 3 (one from the online thing and 2 from the in store thing). Anyway it's really nifty because there's no time limit on any of the stuff, but you can't get more movies till you return the old ones. So anyway I WANTED to get "Love Actually", because a bunch of people have been telling me how good it is, but it was already checked out (it was last time too :thumbdown: , but blah if anything I'll order from online :P:boy: ). So anyway I ended up getting "Imagine Me & You" which is a movie about a woman who falls in love with this other woman on her wedding day (I told you I love lesbians so I'm sure I"ll enjoy this), I also got "John Tucker Must Die" because I remember seeing the previews and thinking it'd be funny, and lastly I checked out the first three episodes of "Queer As Folk". I've never seen a single episode, in fact the extent of my experience with the show is the time someone from here (and darnit I can't remember who :( , sorry) put that link to the Lifehouse song "Everything" that was played to a video of clips from the show. Anyway everyone says it's really good, and I figure it's a semi-important part of modern gay culture so I guess I should see what it's all about. OHH GRRRRR, I just realized that it turns out instead of getting the first three episodes OF SEASON ONE, I accidently got the first three episodes of season four :thumbdown: . And I HATE watching stuff out of order.....GRRR, now I'm tempted to just not watch it and take it back and get the right season tomorrow, after all I have the other two movies and this didn't really cost me anything anyway since I have that membership thingy. I guess I'll watch the other two first and see if I still feel like staying up and watching QAF. One really cool thing is that since this Blockbuster is located right in the middle of Houston's gay center it's got a large selection of gay and lesbian movies. I'm enjoying getting up to speed on our culture's film and TV past/present.

 

So tomorrow's my day off! :D YAY! I'm kinda thinking I may go get my hair done. I'm tempted to get it cut fairly short (for me), and dyed red. I wanted to wait and do that for Valentine's day like I did last year, but I don't think I'm going to be able to hold out that long.

 

Anyway, I know I was probably overly bubbly and irritating in this blog post, so 5,000 bonus points to anyone who got all the way through it :D

 

Have an awesome day all!

Kevin

Woot! 5000 points for me! Haha :great:

 

Another great blog Kevin! Twas confusing with the managers and stuff. I spose you're in an area that you're gay until proven otherwise, so your assumption makes sense.

 

I agree with you on Revenge of the Sith. Definitely the better of the new ones - simply for the lesser amount of wooden acting by Hayden Christiansen. He's cute, but damn he's a sucky actor.

 

I've seen the first 10 mins of Another Gay Movie and actually surprised myself by laughing a couple of time. It's completely over-the-top and camp as a row of tents (as my father would say) but kinda enjoyable. I should get round to watching the rest of it, but who knows when I'll have the time with my new job (don't get my started...)

 

I think you should definitely hold off on those QAF. What's the point of starting 3/5 of the way through a story? I'm one of those people who absolutely can't watch a TV show that I have not seen every single episode up until that point. At least with a serial nature. I'm guilty of watching the odd CSI or ER and I definitely haven't seen every ep and doubt I ever will. Oh, and if your friendly neighbourhood Blockbuster has it, I think you should also check out the British version of QAF. Some say it's better. Personally, I think there's good and bad points about either.

Yep, I ended up returning it without watching it and I got the first disc instead :) . You're right watching serials out of order sucks!!

Hmm, I may do that! I'll probably watch all of the American version first though :)

Anyway take care and have an awesome day!! :D Kevin

When I worked for the hospital I use to have 5 managers, 6 if I was lucky . What they do throughout the day I don't know. Try working in that (It was a lot of fun :thumbdown: ).

 

 

I used to watch QAF but stopped watching it after the third season. To tell you the truth I don't know why I stopped. I remember watching it for the first time, I was scared ..... :blink: ???(don't ask) I say watch it from the beginning. At least you can follow the storyline.

 

As for the Revenge of the Sith I watched that movie over a dozen times (I had to buy it) I think Hayden Christiansen is cute :wub: . You know I never even heard of Another Gay Movie :o I am gonna have to rent it.

 

 

P.S. Chicken Marsala is my fav..... and did you ended up dyeing your hair ??

Awww :( I'm sorry. I actually really do like my setup. They don't really bug us and it's easy to do the "kid thing" when you can go to the one who's most likely to let you do ___. :boy:

What can I redeem my 5000 points for? ^_^

 

I'm not sure why I read this of all the blog entries here, why I'm reading it almost 6 months after it was posted, nor why I found it so interesting, but I enjoyed it anyway. I'm starting to think I have the worst gaydar ever. The guys I'm certain are gay continue to deny it. I'm starting to wonder if they really are straight. :huh:

 

And I hope you've watched Love Actually by now. Another must see is The Holiday with Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, and Jude Law. :)

Hey Raz!! :D

An imaginary all expenses paid vacation of your destination!

LOL, they may be straight, or maybe they're just really closeted (even to themselves?)

 

And I hope you've watched Love Actually by now.

I have :)

Ohhh, I'd like to check that out, I like those three people! What's it about?

 

Take care and have an awesome day!! :D

It's a lot like Love, Actually in how it's set up. Two different story lines come together at the end. It's definitely a romantic comedy, but with amazing lines that separate it from the rest in its field. It will have you laughing incredibly hard and at the same time melt your heart with how sweet it is.

 

Let me know if you end up seeing it, and how you enjoyed it!
