Life update #2

My last post was filled with a bunch of things that had been going on in my life over the past few months. I decided to break it up into 2 posts because I knew i'd never get it finished if i didn't so here we go with part 2.

Passover has come and gone, and I was generally a good boy, no leavened bread for me. Of course that doesn't mean I was offline, so i got a bunch of number of guys that wanted to hang out, but of course I couldn't do it. No I cannot go out and have a drink, but some people just don't understand. Some thought I was just fobbing them off. Oh well, not much I can do.

A crazy thing did happen though. Of course you would remember the crazy chick. You know, the random chick that rocked up to my going away party in a gay bar in New York thanks to my stalker who made a facebook event at the same time and place as my party. I will call her Crazy Bitch because I couldn't be stuffed coming up with a name for her. So Crazy Bitch, as in first name crazy, last name bitch. So I was at a friends place, and another friend of his was there too. Part of the conversation began like this: "How about we set up Crazy with X? X invited me over for a meal, maybe i'll bring her with." Of course I butt in "Which Crazy?" "Crazy Bitch" "As in THE Crazy Bitch that rocked up to my going away party in New York?" "That's the one." Well my friend knew the story, but his friend didn't. So i gave him a brief rundown about my stalker and Crazy Bitch. Of course i left off the bit that it was a gay bar.

So Crazy Bitch is in town, but that's not the end of it. That night I went to the supermarket, not the one i usually go to, a different one this time. And of course who is there? Crazy Bitch. Crap. I avoided eye contact, did my shopping and left. Would she recognise me from New York? Who knows. Of course, thats not the end of it either. Later that night I got a message from Crazy Bitch on facebook. To my real account. She introduced herself and asked if I wanted to hang out because she was visiting. Do i reply? And if yes, what do i reply with? I let it go for a few days. I wanted to reply with something bitchy. Maybe something along the lines "I know who you are, i've met you before. I didn't want to hang out with you then and I still don't. Instead I just left it pretty tame. Primarily because I'm not really such an asshole.

But onto better things. I was at the gym last week, cute guy in the changing room, lol. He got on my train on the way home. I transferred and just made it onto the train i needed to get home before the doors closed. I sat down, forgetting about cute guy and began to read the newspaper. One stop before mine who do I see but cute guy from the gym. Sitting on the other side of the train, a few rows from me. He'd been there the whole time and I'd been to busy to notice he was there. And now he was getting off. Could've been another Mr Subway perhaps? ;)

Of course back to the serious stuff, I'm quite happy the way things are going in my life right now. Work is fine, home life is fine, i'm not interested in shaking anything up because I like the status quo. Too bad not everyone feels that way. My mother came to me sometime during passover. She wanted to know if I had given any thought to seeing someone and seeing if I could change. Didn't I want to have a regular family? Didn't I want kids? I told her there were other ways to have kids. Her response was a classic. "You are not going to have a child with 2 fathers, it's wrong." Oh well, I thought she'd gotten past all that.

As I mentioned I started going back to the gym, and got a few personal training sessions to start off with. The first one absolutely killed me. They say that you can really feel it a couple days after and I bloody hell could. I was in pain, my legs weren't as bad as my arms. They absolutely killed! I had to keep them at almost a 90 degree angle because it was too much pain to straighten them. I had plans for that Thursday night, and the Saturday night and the Sunday too but I cancelled them all. I just couldn't do anything that didn't involve my arms.

I met up with a friend after work this week for a few drinks. We found this random looking place, it looked like a garage or warehouse of some sort, but the front of it was some kind of restaurant or bar so we popped in. We found the bar, and it had a few fridges full of Asahi. Thats it. So we got 2 and I asked how much. "Oh it's free". Well this was going to be fun. It turned out to be some kind of Japanese modern art installation and was sponsored by Asahi. Free drinks and nibbles all night. I guess that makes me cultured :) It was a fun night!

And lastly i'm going interstate for work for a week. So as you do I changed my location on my manhunt and gaydar profile because it'd be nice to find someone to hang out with when i'm there. Well i got inundated with messages and chat requests and everything. Crazy stuff! One funny coincidence was that I got chatting to a guy from Sydney last week, seems like a really fun guy to chill with. Of course the only problem being that he's in Sydney, though he did mention he'd be in Brisbane for a few days for work this coming week. A couple days later i found out so will I! It looks like it'll be a fun week :) Which reminds me, i still have a post from my last trip there saved in drafts. I'd love to compare the two trips when i get back!

Contrary to popular belief...

Contrary to popular belief, I have not forgotten about you. I've just been really busy with work and life. I'm going away next week again for work, but I promise i'll finish the post i'm working on over this weekend so you all have something to read while i'm gone.

It's been soooooooo long!

Yeah i know I have so much to tell the world, and not so much time to tell it all! The next few posts are going to be a bit over the place, I have things i need to write about from ages ago, some recent, and even found a blog post that I wrote and never posted. But i think i may post it soon enough.

It's been a crazy couple of months. Meeting lots of people, some for a drink, some for more than a drink. It's been a real roller coaster of sorts. Busy with work and my social life, it's been a real blast.

I've been making these little notes to remind myself what I want to write about and I hope i can bring this blog back to what it once was. I went out with a friend on Pride sunday. I'd been stood up the night before so I really needed to get out and enjoy myself. We hung out on Fitzroy st in St Kilda. Yes it was after the march, but it was still fun. We had a few drinks at a few places, ended up at the Prince which was packed. Managed to get outside eventually - as many people left their outside area would be the amount of people they let in. Met some interesting people out there, like someone who wanted to smell my shoe. His friend was cute so I let him, lol.

We popped into a place for some food before moving on to the Railway Hotel in Windsor - which of course I found out about from Rob the Drag Queens. We at least I think his name is Rob. The point is he's a friend of Mr Sydney's (yeah i'll get onto him in a later blog post, don't even ask). It had this cool outdoor area which is good on a warm evening. Lot's of eye candy too.

My mate has an iphone, so i introduced him to Grindr. I don't think he's forgiven me yet, lol. The one negative is that the bartender had no clue how to make a vodka sour. But besides that it's my new favourite place.

From there it was time for Love Machine. We had a blast, the only problem was we both had work the next day. But we partied and danced and drank and had a great time, including perving on one hot guy who were were trying to figure out if he was gay or not, lol. Maybe he was a footballer :) We left relatively 'early' after a great day out.

Fast forward to a few weeks later, it was a Sunday again and the next day was a public holiday. Of course we began at the Railway again, and then it was the perfect time to go to love machine we decided. Unfortunately so did a million others. The line was so long it was time for plan B. Only there was no plan B. My detective skills then came in to play. I knew a guy who it seems might have been a photographer there, maybe he could get me in. Only i didn't have his number. I knew his cousin, only didn't have his number either. Aha, facebook! We he didn't have his number on facebook either. I messaged him (the iphone came in handy :) ) and texted some people but no-one knew it. Either that or it was past midnight and they didn't respond. So we went walking up Commercial Road to see what else was happening.

We chose not to go the Market, and the Exchange was dead as usual. We tried some random place called Priscillas. The place was tiny, The dancefloor had about 7 people on it. Quite possibly because that's all it could fit. The only good thing about it was it has an upstairs area that besides all the boys using the bathroom, was quiet enough to make out undisturbed, lol.

Of course we didn't stay there too long. We were both up for a late night, but where to go. We decided to try the other side of town. Beginning with Sircuit. Yeah i'd been there before, we had a few drinks, but i'd never been upstairs before. I'd been offered to go upstairs before, but never actually gone. So we checked it out. How should I put this... it was dark, and had small rooms that could fit maybe a couple guys. Of course there were gloryholes cut out in the walls. So we'd be making out and feeling each other up and then someone would stick his tongue through, or his cock. Yeah we know what they expected us to do, but we weren't interested. Just wanted some privacy ;)

So we left Sircuit, and headed for the Peel which was around the corner. Music, beer, some crazy lesbian trying to drag me onto the dancefloor and destroy my jumper I got in American in the process. Bitch. Anyway, how else to describe it but fun times :)

Um what else have i been doing, met up with another guy for a drink, from gaydar. I did ask him what his facebook is so I could fb stalk him. And he got all freaked out. I was kidding!!!!!! Jeez. Thats probably DOA. But met a few other people too which has been fun. Always good to increase my circle of friends.

Moving onto a different topic. I can't remember what I referred to him as, but I think i mentioned that some guy I was chatting o figured out who I was and I got all freaked out, well i figured out who he was. And of course we were destined to meet, in synagogue of course. I'd seen him a few times previously, but that was before I figured out his identity. The point is he's just a normal guy, was very apologetic about what he did, but i'm seriously ok with it.

It's been Passover this past week so that has certainly kept me busy. Hope you're all enjoying the pizza and bagels! And with that I bring this post to an end. There'll be more to come, I promise!
