There and Back Again...

I had a blast in Utah this last week. I just got back last night. SLC, a certain mansion, Park City, Sundance, the Rocky mountains. I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
Oh, and a Happy Belated Birthday to Margo!

I DO Eat!

Last night when I popped into SoHo for an iced tea, I ran into an old acquaintance who remarked, like a gazillion other people in the last few months, that I look like I've lost weight. As if I had any to loose, but more importantly I do eat - I'm not doing anything different. Some people express concern, but I am no anorexic or afflicted with any eating dissorder. In summary:

Nicole Ritchie: Anorexic. Adam: NOT anorexic!

Stop in the Name of the Law!

Despite being in a happy relationship, I can still post about good looking men, right?

Why can't DC have good looking openly gay officers protecting us, like London's recently retired Deputy Assistant Commissioner Brian Paddick. The only gay police I see here are fat trolls. More's the pity. And yes, I have "a thing" for good looking older men.
He makes me want to commit a crime.

Your Own Private Utah....

Well dear adoring public, since last week's Pride debauchery, I have decided to play it quiet this week and give my internal organs a much-needed rest. Well, that's partially true, I still went out, but overall I've been trying to get my beauty sleep since I know none will be had soon.
I am going to Utah as a guest of a certain someone who hosts a fundraising dinner at his mansion in the mountains of Utah. i will report faithfully all that goes down, keep posted!
I feel bad for Sean, he's been working his ass off lately and needs a vacation far more than I do. Last night, by the way, we went to Bistrot du Coin and for the first time outside of my time in France, I had the escargot (ie snails). And you know what - I've come to belive one can smother anything in garlic and make it taste good. I'd eat a lot of things, if there was enough garlic involved. LOL. And that's how much I love Sean, I'll even eat snails for him.

Rainbow's End

Pride weekend was a blast this year! I found myself going out every night Thursday onwards, it was crazy.
Saturday Sean got back from a chef’s convention in Dallas, TX – he told me I could come along, but honestly, Dallas?? The only thing in Dallas I know is the sister to my “favorite” bar here in DC (hint: it has an ugly green awning). Anyway, he got back Saturday, but by this point there was already drama – I went to a co-workers party, had another coworker (all shall remain nameless) who got so blitzed he couldn’t stand. We went to another party, went to watch the parade, Halo, crashed another party, Cobalt where I...
Made out with a girl.
Yes, I did. It was more of a dare thing, but I did. Poor Sean having to put up with me! And he still loves me… By the way I will post pictures as soon as I get them from friends.
Sunday after getting myself together Sean and I went to a dim-sum place in Chinatown that was pretty scary. The dim-sum was good, but I don’t think I’ll be going back to what can only be described as back-alley Shanghai.
We went to the Pride street festival. Ah, Pride, the time to see people you don’t normally see…and people you spend all year trying to avoid. Later, Phillip came along with his friend from London, Ben, and we didn’t stay more than an hour. Afterwards we went back to Halo (recurring themes) and to Cobalt again. I ran into Stephen (remember him, readers?) He’s doing well, it was actually nice to see him. If only every ex was like that. We all had dinner at Merkado (they have this great guava lime chicken thing). Phillip and Fernando drug me to my “favorite” place for more drinks. Needless to say I am running kinda slow today. Of course, working at a GLBT group, almost everyone has called out “sick.” Right.

Happy Pride 07

Happy Pride Weekend!!

On a not so great note, Margo & Fred's wonderful Irish Setter, Pepper, has been ill with heart problems. My thoughts are with you Peps! :)

To get this weekend started right (I know I'm on a bit of a Youtube kick) here is another favorite song at the moment - Mary J Blige singing the shit out of U2's "One." I think she's pretty much upstaged Bono at this point, watch the fabulosity:

Thursday entertainment...

A classic moment...

I'm in love with Amy Winehouse. This one makes me think of Drunky McDrunkerson:

"They tried to make me go the rehab, I said NO! NO! NO!"

Stories From the City, Stories From the Sea...

I haven't written, I realized, since the 3-day Memorial Day Weekend, so now that Summer is semi-officially here, I figure I should. Actually this whole Summer thing has got me thinking. It seems everyone has been going on vacations at work, which has me starting to think about where I want to go this year, and possibly making plans to go somewhere with Sean. I have to leave the country again this year - just to get out of this Bush-induced nightmare if only for a week or two.

So I went to Rehoboth Beach on Saturday with Phillip and Fernando. I really like Rehoboth for a day get away - it's close, it's clean, it's gay. The only not so great part is there seem to be a correlation between the gay men's age and the shortness of their swim trunks. In a perfect world it would be younger=shorter.

Random pictures from the road trip: Adam's Fruit Stand (snicker, snicker) and Gay St.

Sunday, despite the rain, Sean and I went to the Annapolis Greek Festival. Despite the rain, there were still vendors and great Greek food, I thought it was much better than the one I normally go to here in DC (yes, I said soemthing positive about Maryland). Afterwards we went to downtown Annapolis, because somehow in my 7 years in the DC metro area I've never seen it (and all the time knowing about the hot Naval cadets!). It's got a very cute historical area by the water and some great looking restaurants and shops, I'd love to go back.

By the way, today's post is titled after one of my favorite PJ Harvey albums. Check it out.
