wishing a great long weekend to everyone!

you thought I was going to say a great long... something else huh.
well I'm coming to the end of my second week back to work at school. Looking forward to the weekend. maybe going to try and get out this weekend and check out what guys are around OKC. maybe not. but I'm definitely in the mood just to LOOK. ha
I shaved off my chin beard this morning so I am feeling all clean cut.
I'm just waiting for 9pm here at my night job so I can go home.
The students here at my night job have already left.

REmemver the latin guy that had the tshirt in Spanish that said "in case of fire pull hose" and then pointed down to his crotch? well he hasn't been here in a very long time, last time was in July and he was telling me how his truck got stolen and was found a few blocks from his house and they spray painted on the side of his truck "hey mexican, next time leave your stereo inside the truck" because he had the kind that detached, and they ripped up his seats and roof lining. what jerks.

I've been thinking a lot about the whole immigration issue this week and how fat and lazy we are considered in AMerica. ANd then I was thinking how they say the ILLEGAL immigrants take all the hardworking jobs that americans won't work. But I was wondering what happens if illegal immigration is stopped and all the ones here are allowed to stay. Well all of their children are going to become fat lazy americans and then this country would still expect to find somebody to do the hard jobs, maybe by then they plan to have a guest worker deal where people come to california when the crops are ready and then go back home like in the old days. Oh yeah and I also was thinking that maybe all the kids of the illegal immigrants here now would eventually grow up, and not wanting to work the hard jobs since they grew up NOT as POOR as their parents, and how they would be beating everyone else out of jobs because they speak Spanish and would be more likely hired over some kid who only spoke ENglish. well anyway, that will probably be the future in a lot of states FYI. but I'm just thinking here, I don't know.

yes I want kids someday!...

Here's some cute kid with australian accent. man I hope my kids are that much fun, something tells me I know they will be. ha.

school's back and that means party....

lunar eclipse

I got up this morning at 6:30 and went to swim laps. yup, that's right, time again to swim every morning before work. Actually I started back this week because I'm coming into my night a bit earlier than usual for two weeks so I had no gym time in between jobs.
But i forgot to blog about yesterday morning(Tues). I had set my alarm for 5:25 am so that I could go outside and check out the lunar eclipse which sort of peaked at 5:30 am according to the weather man. So I woke up, slipped into some pajama pants, and some flip flops by the door and I went outside and walked across to the sidewalk across the street because of the tree in front of my house, and there is was this reddish ruddy orange glowing dim perfectly circular round bulb hanging right in the dusky sky. Actually it was still pretty dark out, but a nice breeze, and I say there half awake just absorbing the moment.(for about 20 minutes then went back to bed and reset the alarm for the usual 6:40am. ha)
I'm no big astrologer or science nut, but I'm definitely into all things natural. And I thought golden boy blogger would appreciate that my inspiration was sort of literary. I thought of the book "Prince Caspian" where the young prince is taken up into the castle back towers in the middle of the night to study the stars by his half dwarf tutor. And I'm glad that I interrupted my mundane schedule and routine of the week to witness the nice view. guys don't let life pass you by trying to stick to everyday routine, it's the unusual events you'll remember most.

getting to know YOU...

I always watch BUck's videos on youtube, and tonight I had a lot of fun checking out the responses to his "getting to know YOU" video challenge.
I'f you ever watch youtube in lieu of watching television, check out his challenge and all the many responses. I enjoy just seeing all the many manyman ydifferent people out in the world willing to share some info about themselves.
I'm posting this one because I know always golden will appreciate the accent.

are they too good to be true, or should i get back to the gym to find one... ha

Carlee's Angels - Australian Rowing Team

You guys know what we need......

I say we take an ambiguously GAY BLOGGERS RETREAT.
Just think a random mixed group of guys from all over out seeing the world, go to some country and chill, not a hook-up thing, just relaxing back, get to hear each others' stories and gripes and fears and hot nervous encounters...(not to mention comparing the tremendous lies we've told explaining to people our trip) ha ha
I was reading about matt's planned trip on Debriefing the boy and made me think about it.
next summer, fly out somewhere, meet up and hit some clubs or beaches, hang out, see the sights, maybe some bars, Some of us drinking or smoking, some of us not at all, JP of course talking sports with some drunk straight stud and making out with him near the back exit, someone else, maybe justin, trying to find him the next morning, calling MJ's mom and checking in every 3 hours (j/k buddy), I'd definitely be up for a sauna or nude beach in switzerland.. ha ha, and nothing golden would definitely end up writing the best overall summary of the experience no doubt.
I think that would be a sweet vacation.
So forget your college bills, saving up for a car, upgrading the laptop, start putting money away for blogger retreat 08.
(of course even a stateside city would be pretty cool too)
hey I can dream, right? anything to get me out of OKC once in a while......

SHOUT OUT: to DT, my third local email received through the blog(and HOT myspace pic also btw), great to know there are readers here in the city

If I hadn't mentioned it before, I'm extremely happy with my Canon Elph digital camera...

Macho Deficiency Disorder

two things about roomie

just thought I'd mention that while I was out in the yard Saturday weed eating and all hot and sweating, my roomie came outside with a bottle of water, saying he poured it from his filtered water in the fridge. thanks man that was nice.

and then the weird thing is when he came home yesterday evening from shooting some golf he had on one of my t-shirts. when I came in later from painting the fence and was cooling off, we were both sitting around in front of the tv with our shirts off, and then when I had actually finished and came in for the night, he had on a different shirt. I saw one of my shirts on his room floor about amonth ago, but not one that I ever wear much, and then I found a pair of my jeans in his closet on the floor about a month ago also.(my favorite pair I'd been looking erveryWHERE for.) ha

I'll prolly end up getting this guy some jeans for Christmas, he's a 32/32. I also know I will be getting him a pack of 3 blade razors and maybe some filter refills for the brita water pitcher he keeps in the fridge.

just for the record., and getting personal...blah blah blah

I've been considering giving up men lately. I know that sounds weird, but it was just something I was thinking this weekend. Not that its even possible, but I guess I was just thinking how I'm not even interested in going out and looking anymore, like bars and stuff. On the other hand maybe I'm just being lazy, and since I've only been swimming and running this summer and not lifting weights, well I may no feel as sexy as usual. if that makes sense.
I continue to be completely bored as far as where I am in life right now relationship-wise. My life overall is great, health, job, family, friends (could use more locally). And I am still completely determined to rely on Faith in God for everything in my life, and I am pretty sure that if I never marry a woman and have children, then I'll remain celibate the rest of my life.
I get pretty freaked out about the idea of my parents eventually dying, and not having any children to "belong to" once my parents are gone. And of course, I consider since I'm single anyway, wouldn't it be better to go before them, well better for me. ha.
Usually I am working out all summer in prep for an Austin labor day weekend trip this time of year... but this year I've made no plans and so I think I'll buy a ticket for fall break, that will sort of get me motivated to pump it up again at the gym.
I've been doing tons of yard work lately, and the weird thing is how I love getting outdoors and working around the yard, but at the same time I want to go to the "teaching overseas" job fair this February and maybe travel next year. That seems liek a rough decision now that I have my house just like I want it.
I was outside yesterday painting the fence and I had a record player on the back porch playing Meatloaf "bat out of hell" and another Mamas and Papas album. And I was thinking all about my mom and dad, and how weird it would be to write them a letter and tell them how much I love them and how I enjoy having lunch after church on Sundays. And then I was thinking how I'd like to tell them to please take care of each other and look out for each other because my mom was talking about how my dad almost dehydrated last week while they were on vacation cause he forgot to drink water all day etc.. And then a part of me wanted to tell them all about how I really wish I could find someone and marry and start a family with but how it sucked that I got turned on by guys and what with not getting much attention from my dad or brother growing up, how I go crazy when the right guy does give me a lot of attention. blha blah.. well that last thought was too close to a coming out leter, so I dropped the idea. ha

this is so wrong, but I thought step 8 was really funny and so true... ha....

nice bulge at 2:34
