Gasp! My Husband on a Magazine

Thanks to Water Witch for sending this my way. It appears my first husband is on the cover this month for Men's Health.
Le Sigh. He's so dreamy....

"Rose Tint My World..."

Since I blogged earlier with some Rocky Horror song clips, why stop now...

Pumpkin Pie Fudge

Because the stuff I had at the corn maze was so good I had to find a recipe for it...

Pumpkin Pie Fudge:
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup mashed pumpkin (canned)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 package (12 ounces) vanilla flavored baking chips
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1/3 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract

1. Using butter or margarine, lightly grease the sides and bottom of a medium saucepan.
2. Place the sugar, evaporated milk, pumpkin, butter, salt, and pumpkin pie spice in the saucepan.
3. Stir constantly over medium heat.
4. Bring the mixture to a boil and boil for 12 minutes.
5. Remove from the heat and stir in the baking chips and marshmallows until melted.
6. Stir in the nuts and vanilla.
7. Pour into an 8-inch square pan that has been lined with foil and greased.
8. Chill mixture until set.

Seasons of The Poison Pen...

So I'm working from home this afternoon, which is always nice. You know, I realized this time last year I was with Sean in Mexico. So weird how time flies and where a year takes you. 525,600 minutes... lol

Thanks to everyone who came out for Sean's birthday. Even the ones who weren't invited, but happened to be at Halo anyway LOL! We all had such a wonderful time both at dinner and over witch's brews/cocktails. Couldn't have been any better, and I know Sean had a great time.

I'm very much looking forward to San Francisco!

Sean's Birthday Photos, Redux

Thanks to M for doing the red-eye reduction for me, the photos look a lot better now; you can view them here. You know you want to.


Halloween week is here! So excited! So to start things off right, here's some clips from the classic Rocky Horror Picture Show...

Happy Birthday, Sean!

Happy birthday, love of my life!

Sean's birthday is today! (though we're celebrating it officially with friends tomorrow night).

Dave Adam Does Montreal

There's been talk in my circle of friends about doing a group-trip to what is probably my favorite city in North America; Montreal!

Though you all might find this amusing...

Leave Adam Alone! He’s a Human Being!

Ok, with the days narrowing down to the election (get to work, Drunky, why are you reading my blog when you should be campaigning or something?!) I have to vent about something which is really, really obnoxious.

Street campaigners. You know, the idealistic bright-eyed youth with their little DNC or HRC t-shirts and clipboards. “Do you have a minute for Barack Obama?” “Do you have a minute for gay rights?”

On one level I feel sorry for these youth. Chasing strangers down for donations has got to be soul-crushing work akin to prostitution. Hmmm, actually it is a lot like whoring, only a politician gets your money instead of a pimp. But I digress. And once these kids realize that they are not making a difference, I’m sure that’s when the heavy boozing/heroin injecting will kick in.

But do they really have to spoil my daily walks down the sidewalks with their well-meant (yet naïve) pestering? I swear, these days just going to lunch from my office I feel like I need a valium to run the gauntlet of campaign-whores who want my minute(s) for (insert cause/politician here: _______). I don’t even try to be polite with them anymore, either.

Sean laughed recently because I snapped at some poor Greenpeace kid – “NO!” But I mean, he wouldn’t get out of my way! These political whores have gotten more and more aggressive. They’ve gotten to the point where they try to physically block your path. Not cool.

This brings me to my point. Maybe I could use a political science person to help me with this, but my question is: do street campaigners really make any difference? How effective are they, truly? I ask because pretty much everyone I know ignores them, and is irritated by them. Doesn’t it have the opposite effect? I mean, I could easily see someone voting Republican just out of spite because of these kids!


This is the funniest shiz I've seen in a long time. So cold... I love it!

Kerry Katona Meltdown

My favorite trainwreck from across the pond (well, next to Amy Winehouse), the "British Britney" AKA Kerry Katona went on TV recently in the UK.
I swear I wish I could come to work at high/drunk/cracked out as she is in this interview. This is precious (and good luck to anyone trying to understand exactly what it is she's saying).

You Wok My World

So last night Sean went with some friends to a Chinese place in Man-ass-ass Manassas called "Wok & Roll." Coinidentally a weekend ago while I was in search of Halloween stores (you know, those seasonal stores that sell all the costume crap) we passed by it and joked about it. So last night night when he called me from the Wok & Roll, I was like, seriously?

But it got me thinking about all the silly Chinese restaurant names I've seen over the years. It almost makes me want to open one up, just so I can name it! Some that I have (seriously) seen are:
Moon Wok;
Wok, Don't Run;
The Big Wong;

Do you, my faithful reader, have any to add to the list. If so, add in the comments section (where Andy is pointing...)

A Slutty Witch

Are You Going to San Francisco?

October is such a busy month! So many people I know are several October birthdays, for instance Water witch's, and Sean's. Sean will be celebrating his birthday this weekend - I'll keep you updated on what the plans are.
Speaking of witch, I mean which, I am very much looking forward to going to San Francisco next week to celebrate the Water Witch’s birthday in style, and Halloween. Watch out San Fran! The Castro will never be the same.

I love the fact that the Earth Witch put a clip from one of my favorite all-time movies “All About Eve” over on her blog today! Watch out, it is going to be a bumpy night!

“I believe that the world should revolve around me!” –Indeed! Just ask anyone’s who’s dated me. The fact that Sean’s stayed with me for two years is in itself amazing. He treats me like the prince(ss) I am, he does. Our 2-year anniversary is coming up!

So 3 Witches Walk Into a Haunted House...

So Friday afternoon Water Witch invited me along to go to a haunted house in Maryland. And by haunted house, it turned out to be a seasonal attraction held in a mall parking lot, but I digress. Parts of it were scary, but really, they should have been more scared of us! Don't they know who the three witches are?! And in the end, driving the dark back-roads of Maryland was scary enough (remember the freaky pizza place we stopped at?!). To round out the scary theme of the evening we went to Freddy's Beach Bar in Arlington. I kid, I kid. No, actually a lot of the karaoke was pretty scary.

Saturday night I had one of the best meals I've had in a long time. As if to balance out the shiteous meal I had at 1905, a new place in Adam Morgan that is owned buy a guy Sean knows, is called Himalayan Heritage. I can't say enough good things about this place!!! From the very Nepalese decor, the super-friendly and attentive wait staff, and amazing food (when was the last time you ate Tibetan/Nepalese?), I can't wait to go back, and introduce my friends to it. Sean and I both give it two thumbs up!

After dinner we had cocktails at Halo, and found that they've changed to their autumn seasonal menu... which this year includes a "Fire Passion Martini." My new favorite drink. It's like they made it just for the Fire Witch! It has passion fruit and chili pepper... it's sweet but burns... like me! They know me so well!

Sunday I took Sean to the Corn Maze that he wanted to go see. It was actually a lot of fun... we made it out in about 40 mins, so we didn't get too lost in it. They had really great pumpkin pie fudge, too - don't ask just try it! Afterwards we went to my favorite orchard for apple picking. Got some fresh apple cider, too. It was a beautiful fall day in the mountains...

No Fair!

My husband #2, Tom Brady, will sadly not be the next Calvin Klein underwear model. I'm restraining my anger and dissapointment, in hopes that this means he wants to spend more time at home with me!

Cokey Candy

Rejoice, it's FridAAy!So here's some random shiz:

Cocaine Meets Cotton Candy - I want some! Only my girl Amy Winehouse could have come up with something like this.

Luke Perry from the original 90210 (not this new travesty I refuse to watch) had a birthday recently. It made me think: I always like his character, Dylan. He was the "bad boy" of the show. What is it about the bad boys? Oh well, I'm over that, I have Sean now, my little Eagle Scout!

I know I'll never hear the end of it from some friends, but I can't help it: I can't help it, I kinda like Britney's new song, "Womanizer." The guy in the video is actually kinda hot. Britney needs to move her crazy-train ass over. Or at least help me record a gay version I can send to Anderson Cooper!

My friends have been waiting for this, I know. But before I rake a certain restaurant across the coals (I should’ve been a food critic) I will say that it was great to reunite with friends, even in times when everyone is busy. And allow to me mushy here for sec – I know, I know, what’s that strange feeling in the lump of black ice in my chest cavity? I think it’s called an “emotion.” Quick get me a martini and some pills!

I kid, I kid. Seriously; sometimes even after two years I look over at Sean and think “Wow, he’s really cute.” I love the way at even after a couple years he still can surprise me, and look so handsome.

So last night we all ventured to a new restaurant on ever-changing 9th St NW, called “1905.”

At first I was very impressed with the décor; it’s very bohemian-metro-urban-shabby-chic. I’m not sure what that mean either, but basically it looks like they robbed an Urban Outfitters. Not that that’s a bad thing…

Sadly it seems the owners focused too much on décor and not the reasons people go to restaurants; to eat. I’m not sure what was worse – the waiter who consistently disappeared for so long that I thought I’d need to put his face on a milk carton; the sub-par food; the fact that it took 35 minutes for any entrees to arrive – and when they did one poor friend’s plate came out a full 20 minutes before everyone else’s. Mind you this was not a busy night.

I think the food was supposed to be French bistro (?) but fell flat in my opinion. The frustrating lack of service; the small, inadequate and uninspired menu; the hour it apparently took them to personally dive into the Chesapeake Bay to retrieve my oysters… I’m not really sure what my least-favorite part was. There were so many to choose from.

As one Washington Post writer once put it so greatly: “At least the water was cold.”

In other Election News

Tired of hearing about the American elections? Well to prove that not all Yankees exist in a bubble that thinks the USA is the center of the universe, I have something different to share:
Congrats to my two Canadian friends who were hoping incumbent (and strikingly handsome!) Prime Minister Stephen Harper would win - he did, I just found out!

DILF Wednesdays : Gerard Butler

Ok, so I haven't forgiven Gerard Butler for starring in the crapfest that was the movie 300. But with a body like his, I can overlook those two hours of my life I'll never get back.

a few shots

Rocktober Malaise

Well, I’m back home today and back into the routine. It’s always great to see Sean when he picks me up at the airport; I missed him while I was away. Yet coming back to the States is always bittersweet, especially after being in a country that has already achieved full legal equality for gay people (among other accomplishments). Especially when my Canadian friends hear about the kind of work I do, it drives home the point that this is a very reactionary country, one that will probably always lag behind other Western democracies in the liberties front. One should welcome coming home, but I truly don’t. Anyway, going there made me think a lot about really picking up and moving (and no, it’s not tied to the election – I really don’t even care who wins at this point).

Well enough being Debbie Downer; I had a great time and it was absolutely amazing in Nova Scotia and at the north of the province in Cape Breton Island. I coincidentally happened to be there in time for the Celtic Colours festival. The region has a strong Celtic heritage; there are towns where street signs are in Gaelic and French. The mountains were blazing with orange and reds. It was so picturesque and great to visit friends. I like Halifax, but compared to, say, Montreal or Toronto, it would be a bit slower-paced. The city is a bit smaller that Washington, for comparison, and subsequently there’s a little less to do. For example, everyone is the gay scene pretty much knows everyone else. But the small-community feel is a bit charming, too. I mean, overall, Canadian tend to be very nice and polite people; it can be a little disarming being a cynical Washingtonian used to dealing with all the soul-sucking “power gays” and “insiders.” Hmmm… maybe a move up north is in order!

So what else; let’s see…congrats to my friend “water witch” for his work on that wonderful clip over at Perez Hilton. Also, my friend the “earth witch” is down is Cajun country visiting a friend (tell Char hi for me!). I can’t wait for the three elements to get together for a very bewitching Halloween. Something tells me certain people who’ve crossed the water witch better get every charm they can find… spells are brewing! Double, double, toil and trouble!

Green With Envy

So my good friend was at the debates last night live! The reason I’m jealous is because Anderson Cooper was supposedly there, too. Ok, I guess meeting the candidates would have been cool too.

So I did watch the debates at a neighbors house last night. I think Obama actually did a better job this time, was a little more aggressive, and didn’t let McCain walk all over him, like last time. McCain just looked hobbled around like an old man in need of a rocking chair. Granted he had his moments of cheap patriotism that panders to Middle America, but over all I think Obama came out a “winner” if you can say there was one.

HIGH-lites: A) did anyone see the guy falling asleep in the audience?! No, it wasn’t my friend LOL. B) Did anyone catch the part at the end where McCain totally dissed Obama and wouldn’t shake his hand! Ouch!

DILF Wednesdays : Oh, oh, oh Canada

Since so many of my DILFs have been getting married, or dating younger tramps (I'm looking at you, Anderson!) Today's DILF is in my age-range, but in honor of flying to Canada tomorrow for a week, I wanted to honor a hot man from north of the border - and I already featured Ryan Reynolds, so here's another Ryan from Canada: Ryan Gosling.
I was going to find a picture of a hot hockey player or something. The down side is when they smile, they usually have fugged-up teefs. I dated this Canadian guy who had a bunch of fake teeth from when he played hockey as a lad. On one of our first dates, two of them popped out while he was eating. I'll leave you with that image...

Thanks for the Memories...

What a wonderful weekend it was - special thanks to my two witch sisters and "Queen B" for a great time at the gala dinner and the reception.

Gala Weekend

I'm very much looking forward to joining my friends - and Sean - for the HRC national gala dinner tomorrow. I'll have pictures soon!

And I thought about commenting on the vice-presidential debates last night, but it honestly bores me. Though it was funny watching it with my friends at Halo (and playing "Palin Bingo") and watching all the hypocrisy go down. Of course all the "power gays" in the bar booed when Our Lady of Wasilla said she opposed gay marriage. But it was priceless to watch all the Obamassiah-loving queens not know what to do when their man, Biden, said the same thing! Ha! And you fools give him your vote$ and (more importantly) money.
Now, in light of Biden's anti-marriage stance last night, will someone tell me why he's a guest of honor at the HRC gala dinner? Just wondering...

A Las Otras Brujas...

I was so happy to see what my fellow bruja wrote this morning about me and the "Water Witch."

And it's all so true! "If you don't believe you better get superstitious!"

Wednesday, October 01, 2008


Every so often I see gay couples with kids; it can be two dads with kids at the grocery store, or whatever, and it gets me thinking about that whole paternal instinct thing.

I mean this would be a very “down the road” thing, but I guess at some point you have to start thinking about the future. Not just where I’ll be 5-10 years from now, but other things like would I ever want to adopt. I know Sean and I agree we would adopt – of course so many things would have to fall into place; creating a stable home is no small feat, and then the whole adoption process. It’s scary to think about!

A friend once commented, when one “happy gay couple” (inside joke) with a baby strapped in a papoose walked by at a store that they were just trying to fill an empty void by conforming to hetero-normative expectations. And I certainly think there are couples (gay and straight) who have kids almost as accessories. But I still wonder one day if that could be me.

It means a major lifestyle change too. It’s kinda hard to take a baby in Halo – “I’ll have the black cherry cosmo… and can you warm this bottle for me?” But then, when I reach a certain age, I don’t want to be one of those sad alcoholic pathetic queens hanging around JR’s either! There’s got to be more to life than that, right?!

Two points: A) why are guys with kids that much hotter? And B) No child of mine is using wire hangers. Just putting that out there now. Discuss!

DILF Wednesdays: You Oughta Know!

Another celebrity man-crush of mine is getting married/partnered! What is it!

Ryan Reynolds is engaged and soon to be married to Scarlett Johansson. Damnit! And you know somewhere in Canada his ex, Alanis Morissette, is either getting out the voodoo doll... or eating a whole box of Tim Horton's donuts. (My Canuck readers will know the Tim Horton's reference).

Actually I'm secretly hoping she writes a song about him, like she did years ago about Dave Coulier. And I can't feel sorry to Ryan either. Dating Alanis Morissette is like dating me - you know if you fuck up you're either going to have a song or blog written about you. Drunky Oughta Know!
