Maybe I spoke too soon…
At least the people of Missouri apparently had the good sense to realize that a dead Democrat was better than a live Republican as a candidate for the US Senate. It’s a pity that slightly more than half of the country couldn’t show the same good judgment by electing a different dead Democrat to the presidency.
I’m going to bed. I may move to Canada tomorrow.
David’s first rule of casual copulation: in the rare event that one’s house is completely clean one evening, no potential sex partner will see it, no matter how promising things may look early in the evening. Period.
The laundry is done, the dishes are washed, and the floors are vacuumed, and I’m sitting here watching “Badfinger: Behind the Music“, all by my lonesome. That’s OK; I did have nice cheap sex earlier with a boy in very convincing bike messenger drag, among others. But I rather wanted to bring someone home. And I thought I was going to at one point. Oh well…
Things I love tonight:
- My stunningly clean house and “Downy fresh” laundry.
- Half-price Hallowe’en candy at Long’s.
- $1.69 Stouffers at Ralphs.
- Alternaboys with surprisingly large penises.
Things I hate tonight:
- Cute boys (named Steve) who are sober enough to cruise me very agressively (to the point of snuggling, even) but are too drunk to have the attention span required to get past that point.
- Forgetting to set the VCR and thus missing The Simpsons while engaging in the aforementioned snuggling.
- The asshole who stole the brand new jack from my trunk just hours after I bought it last night.
One of the biggest things I’d miss about living in a large urban area would be the ability to get around without a car. Even though I actually have one, I almost never drive it in the city. It’s just too much of a pain in the ass, given parking, traffic, and the alarming recent increase in the number of idiots on the streets. It’s usually easier just to walk most places I go, or sometimes to take a bus. My car is pretty much for trips to the supermarket and, more importantly, for trips OUT of the city.
Tonight, we took BART to Oakland for dinner, followed by a long walk. When I lived in Charlotte, we never took a train to Gastonia for dinner. In Greensboro, a fairly large city, I don’t think any of the bus routes even operate after about 6:00 at night. Tonight’s trip took maybe ten minutes longer than driving would have and the frustration level was almost non-existant.
I love having a car, but I also love not HAVING to have a car.
A disclaimer: I only eat at McDonald’s when there’s pretty much no other viable fast food option. The food’s just too bad to cope with on a regular basis, even with my significant tolerance for crap.
That said, what’s up with their much-publicized new “made fresh for you” system? Seems the only difference is that the same miserable-tasting food now takes twice as long to be served. Especially if you’re in line behind some soccer mom agonizing over which Beanie Baby to choose. McDonald’s only advantage (ubiquity aside) used to be speed. Now they don’t even have that…
Note to anyone waiting for an email response: it’s coming soon. I cheated tonight and sat through Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, and Son of Frankenstein all in a row. I’m taping Young Frankenstein at midnight. That’s my half-assed concession to Hallowe’en.
Speaking of half-assed, how about this stream of one-paragraph updates…
So I got this note from the Department of Parking and Traffic saying I had an old parking ticket to pay, dated 16 September 1996. The ticket was apparently placed on my former car about 12 hours before this happened. No wonder I never saw it and never paid it…
No weekend sex quest. I decided I just didn’t care. But I do have a new domain name. Now all I have to do is figure out what I should do with it. First person who suggests a watersports site gets smacked…
Changes coming soon. I’ve registered a new domain name (no, I’m not saying what it is until the DNS records are confirmed nd showing up correctly) and I’ll be moving things around, remodeling, and just maybe even adding some new content. It won’t happen for a couple of weeks, though. You will be warned.
I don’t really have any exciting news or observations to present today. I finally got over the strange flu-ish thing I had. I’m still bummed about Troy, but I’m moving on. And I put together a site for a friend with a spare house he’s trying to sell, in case you have a spare million-plus bucks hanging around in your wallet. And my part-time job still sucks ass, in case you were wondering.
I feel a sex quest coming this weekend, if anyone feels inclined to assist. I felt one coming last weekend too, but there wasn’t really any interesting sex to be found. There rarely seems to be any interesting sex to be found South of Market anymore, unless I’m just missing something really obvious. I’m not sure what happened.
Actually, I’m quite sure what happened. I’m just surprised that it happened so fast.
