Whew thank you thank you thank you Speedy. wow being in Dallas last weekend was like coming out from under a rock. I think part of it was being with a friend like my dallas buddy, we seem to communicate well and he's a good listener. He's also a good thinker, I forget to ask enough questions to draw out what's on his mind sometimes, there's so much going on. Great guy, and although he's thanking me for helping him move this weekend, I just loved getting away and helping a friend out was aweomse, that's what guys do right? share experiences and hang out and all that...ok well of course I loved the whole social aspect of the weekend.
Saturday morning slept in a bit, eventually getting ourselves to the apt for some final moving of furniture and clearing out of my bud's old place. next to lunch with Organized Chaos and played some Wii and had grilled food, talked about coming out to ourselves stories and first venturing online or other meeting of men. next my bud got ready for work and left while I chilled and planned my evening. I went down on the strip to the bar "J.R's" and had a beer while waiting for Speedy to get off work, he texted me as I got my first beer, and so I chugged it down and walked over to where I parked at his work. we then left to a VERY COOL str8 bar, possibly the hottest little jumping bar of the night "Strip Line". We drank some and enjoyed the awesome DJ mix, then left to check out a gay bar in Dallas called "Tin Room". It was ok......hmmm..next downtown to the strip again and into ROund-up where I ran into an Austin buddy and finally got my New Year kiss. ha. Speedy and I left at closing and both got a hotdog across the street at a stand. we were so hungry by that point. walking to where I parked I saw the ex bf of my Austin bud H. I gave him a big hug and traded phone numbers. I hadn't seen him since I left overseas in Dec 07.!! ahhh (they had broken up while I was gone and I hadn't seen him since!). great way to end the night. got up this morning to see Speedy off to work and say goodbye, then I burned some cd's for him, 2 mix CDs and then Mighty Wind soundtrack, Ella Edmondsun, and School of Seven Bells. and I burned off his laptop the Sufjan Stevens Christmas music, and OK Computer and some Sinead Oconner tunes.
got back in town this evening and realized my two new favorite winter jackets/coats that I bought in NYC had been left at his place. ahh well!! I'l just have to get back, that's all there is to it. hope all are ready for the new year!
