more fun with some buddies around...

car show

got up and out this morning in time to go to a funeral. It was for my brother-in-laws mom and graveside. Next went by the car show in town to show some love and support to my dad. He was up there with the 41 Ford he's been restoring for the past few years. SO I sat in the shade with him and my mom for a while, and my mom was pointing out some Bel Air cars she remembered going out in dates in. I walked around and checked out some very nice old Cameros and Chevy trucks.. ahh yeah, it's not as redneck as you'd think what with the guys with their low riders and a few BMW Mini's.
got home and napped a bit before going in to work tonight, way too hot here in the 100's for mid July if you ask me but ahhh well. At least I'm home and experiencing living here and doing my yard work and going to movies and seeing my family unlike last year stuck on a base overseas.
SPeaking of movies, I went with my good bud S. to see "away we go" last night. It was definitely paced like most indy filmes, but I have to say a really good and uplifting tale. The chemistry between Kasinsky and Rudolph seemed real onscreen. Next on the list, HARRY POTTER!! ha ha. ahh yeah I'm not into the books and all that, but just like the effects of the movies so might was well see it on the big screen....what with no more lord of the rings movies coming out... sniff sniiff... ha ha. What are you guys up to this hot hot mid summer weekend?
I'd rather be out on a lake in a boat! If there's ever a huge amount of money-making job in my future, I have GOT to get a boat and some lake property somewhere for the summers!! love that.

wish I were at the LAKE!

dan on thursday yawn

worked legs at the gym today. my hardest thing to grow. A trainer once told me I'm "exomorphic" which means lean and lanky. something about how it's harder for me to grow muscle since my arms and legs are longer than short squatty body guys who have shorter levers/limbs to use in lifting weight. that's why I do leg press more than squat machine.
Time for gym confessions: Sometimes when I'm stretching out before a workout I like to imagine I'm a magician's assistant trying to fit into some weird position inside a box. Also sometimes while I'm doing abs I imagine a convery belt going by and I have to lift my legs or torso each time something comes by. or like when I do shrugs I'll imagine I'm lifting luggage so that it doesnt hit something on an imaginary conveyor belt, othetimes on shrugs I'll say to myself "I don't know" inside my head as I shrug. When I'm doing calf raises I sometimes tilt my headback like I"m trying to look over a fence.
Today there was a really really cute short guy, but the awful thing was the too long shorts he had on that hung just below the point where his calves go back in, giving the impression of hooves sort of sticking out of those shorts into his shoes. what made it worse is that he was wearing a long sleeve tshirt loose that hung way below his waistline, seriously it looked like he was some kid playing dress up with grown up clothes. poor guy. There was another guy who is black that had on black denim shorts real loose and baggy and sagging low, so that there was about 2 inches between his shoes and the cuff. Not sure why that is work outwear, or why that is even still a STYLE. I keep waiting for some extremely popluar star or comedian to do an act or movie where they just rail on the whole sagging style to where kids begin to think, way UNCOOL. please please please let it happen soon.
someone commented about me doing porn. ha ha. I used to fantasize about that way back about having this secret life of doing porn, but take into account I'm not the most experienced top with guys I doubt it'd be much of a show. But I've had guys say that to me before about I should do porn, but I think it was just based on my dick or they were just feeding me lines, like you know how guys will try flattery like a salesman. ha I used to be one of those sort of skinny hung type guys, and was really conscious of it when I was thin, like out of proportion, now I"m worked out at 6'1 and 170 and fell all around in proprotion I guess. but you know I"m a shoe size 9 so I have to say it's not always shoe size.
The answer is no I would never do porn, I mean anyone and everyone is doing porn online these days anyway, even straight people. and I'll never have the abs I had in college anyway so it'd look obviously like all the amateur porn out there anyway... ha

update on dan



I bought this shirt online yesterday as a sort of gift to myself. I have a birthday coming up the end of the month and my usual custom is to treat myself to a little something. I'm going to Santa Fe for the last week of July with my Austin buddy, so the shirt will be something new to wear. It was a splurge, and I've budgeted some money for the week there but otherwise I'm going to be very lean with my spending. I plan to be as careful until I get a JOB! I applied at the state department today for an opening there, and although it's a year round job, it pays more than public school teaching. I'm not sure the position is something I could whole heartedly do, but if I get an interview I can learn more about if we fit. The position listed that speaking another language was wanted, and so I kind of applied out of spite because I feel like what they really want to say is A SPANISH SPEAKING LATINAMERICAN . I doubt they could actually put that in as a requirement though. ha


Happy Birthday this month to Passing Fancy blog, he was in town today with his new boyfriend, and we got to meet up and eat at the mall and walk around and I really enjoyed hearing everything he's been up to. I need to definitely try and visit Dallas to celebrate our birthdays.


Ok here's a shameful plug, I have a wish list on Amazon under the name daninokc for anyone not feeling the depths of despair from these recession times and who, like me, loves giving gifts on people's birthday. ha. Or if you'd just like to check out the sort of things Dan wishes to read, watch or listen to.

it's in the audience's faces... wow
