Summertime, and livin's sleazy...

As my friend Leni would say today has been "one brothel of a day!" Here's another fun quiz:
The Sex Pistols
Old school punk! You just say what you have to say
regardless of what everyone else thinks!
You're one of my most favourite types of
music... You're raw and uncut! You're
surrounded by hype...just don't let it make you
go insane...

What genre of rock are you?

Well, I have to get prepared for work tonight. I need a drink. I need a DRINK

Cure for Insomnia

As you may be able to tell by the time this is being posted, I can't sleep. After teaching a night class I hung out with a friend in Dupont Circle drinking coffee...and now I can't sleep. Not that I have to get up early for anything tomorrow...or should I say later today, but still! (Not that I've ever been a morning person anyway).
Randomly, it occured to me today to creat a list of euphemisms, and what people really mean... so to that end here is my list of WHAT THEY REALLY MEAN WHEN THEY SAY

1) "I need my space" REALLY MEANS "I'm screwing around on you behind you back."

2) "I am quitting smoking" REALLY MEANS "I'm too cheap to buy my own cigarrettes, so I'll keep bumming off of you. If I don't buy them, then that means I'm not really a smoker anymore, right?"

3) "I'm re-evaluating what I want out of life" REALLY MEANS "I have no f***ing clue what I'm doing. I'm depressed."

4) "Oh my god, I'm so happy for you!" REALLY MEANS "You lucky motherf***er. That should've happened to me! Me, I say!"

5) "My (lover/boyfriend/friend/self etc) has issues" REALLY MEANS "(whoever) is just plain crazy. Where are the meds?"

6) "They have a great personality!" REALLY MEANS "They are ugly as sin. I had to find something nice to say" This could also apply to "They/you have such a pretty face!" REALLY MEANS: "They/you have a pretty face...too bad the rest ain't."

The list could go on forever! Have any good ones to add? Let me know!

your bitch.

What swear word are you?

Let Me Entertain You...

So, where do I begin. Well yesterday I had a really nice dinner and discussed the possible idea of moving to New York. Now, I know it sounds rash, but really. Sometimes, I just get so bored living in DC. I mean, I love all of my friends and I have some wonderful experiences here. But having been to NYC several times I just find it so more exciting than this place and I wouldn't mind trying it out. It's always good to try something new. And speaking of new, I also got my hair styled yesterday. I promise to put up a pic later. Anyway I guess my point is, after having dinner yesterday, everything really felt like it was falling into place for once, like everything in my life wasn't going so bad and there's hope. Yeah, this summer has been a bit depressing on certain fronts, but Autumn is coming, and Autumn has always (for me, anyway) been a season of change, hope, and new beginnings. It's almost like you can smell it in the crisp air. It seems all of my relationships start in Autumn, college starts in Autumn, I tend to move to new places in Fall too. So we shall see...
Sorry to ramble on a bit. Here's today's new quiz! (I have my friend Bianca to thank for getting me hooked on quizzes! Damn you...can't resist quizzes!)
I always wondered what kind of alcoholic drink I was...yet somehow I always pictured myself more of a Midori Sour or a Gin & Tonic.

?? Which Alcoholic Drink Are You ??

One final note on potentially moving to NYC... I was looking at apartment prices in Manhattan and almost pissed myself! Yikes! And I thought London was expensive. Ok, so they probably are about the same, but I did find resonable rent prices in Brooklyn and Queens (can't you just see ME living in bourough called Queens? haha!). Well, comparable to Washington that is. If anyone reading this can find any good deals in Manhattan by all means let me know!!! Of course, if I found a cheap place in Manhattan, I sure as hell wouldn't tell anyone!

Oh, and finalmente~ visit my friend Bianca's blog. Go HereShe lives in Portland, Oregon. Another one of my favorite cities!
Ok, lastly, I couldn't resist one more stupid quiz.

Friday ramblings

Ok, so it's Friday afternoon and I'm sitting at my favorite cafe (SOhO cafe - 22nd & P st. NW, go there!) passing time. For some reason this place has always held a certain mystique for me. I still remember when I first moved to the Washington area and heard of this mythic hangout spot all my friends went to in Dupont Circle. Granted a lot has changed, but it still holds a nostalgic value and is a cornerstone of some pretty good experiences here.

I'm also really excitied because I may very well have a new job. Also upcoming is the annual Summer Maquerade Ball. This is its eigth year running and I've gone every year since I was 18. What can I say, it's a lot of fun!. Click here to find out more. The rules are thus: you must wear a costume of some sort as well as a mask of some sort (hence it being a masquerade).

Kill Adam Vol. II

Better Yet...
Take the quiz: "Who is your Kill Bill Fag Hag?"

Beatrice Kiddo aka Black Mamba aka The Bride
You both hold grudges against those who did you harm (you for your cheating ex's and her for the ass holes who tried to kill here during her wedding recital). You both believe that revenge is a dish best served cold and you probably met while trying to kill your enemies. You both share your liking for Katana's and bitterness. You're such a bitter queen.

Kill Adam Vol 1

You know, I was watching Kill Bill Vol. II today. What can I say, I love both volumes. Yet I have this creeping feeling that if and when I do get married, a certain less-than-stable Bill-esque ex boyfriend of mine (whom I will not name here) will come and create a massacre. Which will, of course, force me to go on a roaring rampage of revenge. Better start brushing up on my samurai techniques. In the meantime, here is a fun quiz. And I was shocked at my personal results, even though I think Daryll Hannah is FIERCE.

Elle Driver (California Mountain Snake)

You're Elle Driver! Sly and evil, you can manipulate people in order to get whatever you want. You're usually alone, but that's the way you like it. You hate having others nearby to order you around (unless it's Bill, of course... but even then you're still hesitant).

Dupont Memoirs

Oh the drama of the last two years! I'm not really sure where to begin, but the idea occured to me that I should write a memoir of all the stupid/crazy shit that has happened since coming to and living in Dupont Circle. Those of you who know me will know some of the references below. The rest of you will just have to wait until I can get my memoirs published!

Some gems from the last two years:

"Adam, I had to hold my cheeks together all the way down P st, and when I finally got back to the Westpark, **** was there and I said, '****, I CAN NOT TALK TO YOU RIGHT NOW!'"

"Oh come on Adam, why do you have to be such a prude! What's wrong with P St. Beach?"

"Oh that is Faaaaaaaabulous!"

"So boy, are you a top or a bottom....A top? You don't look like a top. You look like a bottom!"

"Is that yo' boyfriend? IS THAT YO' BOYFRIEND???"

"I'm going to get myself a Diet Coke...and when I come back I am going to rip you both new assholes. If you had been my child I would have thrown you in the Aegean Sea!"

More to come in the future as my drug-ravaged mind can't remember much these days.

Michael Phelps, crush of the week.

Ah, sigh.

Update on My life

So let's see what's new in my life. Well I may be going to grad school (yes, that's still up in the air as funding from mommy and daddy is non-existant), I potentially have a new job. I KNOW I should have bee looking harder. After all, I've had all summer long to find a job, but it's proved harder than I imagined. I am also (along with the job thing) trying to move out on my own again. I loved my time living in Washington (DC, not the state that is) and having to move back in with my parents after some sour events proved humiliating to say the least. What can I say? I love my independence, despite living at home and not paying rent. Rent is worth every penny when you have your own life =) I am hopeful everything will fall into place as it needs to.

Adam is also looking for new love (yes, I speak of myself in the third-person sometimes). So if you are, or know anyone who is, an attractive young gay male feel free to contact me. And now that I'm done with my shameless self-promotion, on to the news.

Did anyone out there see the opening ceremonies of the Olympics in Athens? Having been to Greece and thus developing an obsession with Hellenic culture, all I can say is it was a truly beautiful ceremony that covered three millenia of Greek history, mythology and philosophy. Wishing I was back there...
As far as the sports themselves are concerned, I really got a thrill from watching the swimming events, namely US swimmer Michael Phelps. Yum.
