30 October 2008

My day just happened to coincide with Disney Gay Days 2008. It's not an official event, but the Gayest place on earth, Disneyland, is overrun by thousands of gay men in red shirts. I pity the random straight man who by mistake chooses the clean red shirt from the cloths hamper.
My day started as most do. In Bed. I love beds.

There was showering and eating, and then

We wait for the shuttle to the park. Introductions are in order. On the left with the knockers my baby sis loves is my sister-in-law, Leslie. Next to her, the TALL one is Leslie's son Thomas. He's going into the Navy, this is his last hurrah before boot. On the right is my oldest friend Dave. AKA Big Gay all. AKA the infamous pirate, Lodi the Dove.

Leslie made a joke and had to hid from me. I found it quite funny that she could hide behind her son.

The banner says it all. "Where we meet old friends for the very first time"

My ticket to the Happiest place on earth. Yay!! First on our list was a scavenger hunt. We got there just a little bit early so we decided to channel some of the Disney character bronze statues in front of Cinderella's Castle.

What do you think, twins separated at birth?

The scavenger hunt was lots of fun, but it also involved LOTS of running around. Take my advice don't try to run and snap pictures. It's dangerous! (musical tones) The more you know!

After the scavenger hunt we headed to Critter Country. We got fast passes for Splash Mountain. Dave loved the sign, but we lost track of him afterwards. Funny enough we found him "just around the river bend"

This is the aftermath of Splash mountain. It's the only dry spot on my body. I was dripping for 15 minutes and wet for most of the day. That's the last time I sit in the front of the log.

A whale of a tale!

It may be noted in this picture that Thomas bears a passing resemblance to a certain actor who was in a certain Disney movie about Pirates. Too bad he's technically my nephew.

Lodi the Dove and Captain Jack Sparrow.

Define irony: Two gay men in a giant teacup.

The great fake mountain of Disneyland. I miss the sky tram that used to run through the mountain. The Yeti would wave at you when you went by.

Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine!

This used to be the 20,000 Leagues under the Sea ride. It's been updated to a "Finding Nemo" theme.
Goofy Vader. hhhhssss, paaaaah hhhhssss, paaaah

And that is the extent of my pictures. It got dark and my camera doesn't do well in low light situations. We ate overpriced "park" food rode a few more rides, and then went back to the hotel. We crashed big time. Enjoy!!

my photo day and stuff

Geoff and I both took photos, but we used my camera, and I uploaded them so they're under the same post. This first one is a book that also includes a c.d. to help YOU unlock your psychic abilities! We listened to the c.d. in the car while running errands. 
Geoff reviews the book on "Ghost Cake" check itunes to download the podcast:)

Here is Geoff with a lovely wigbox at "Consignment Circut"
We also went to the Planetarium to get Geoff's brother a birthday present. 
I love this dude. Check out how blocky his feet are..
This is Cobbler Obama Wobbler, my Brussels Griffon. He's the best dog ever:) Currently he's napping in my lap. 
Geoff never could keep his finger out of his nose for very long...

Back at the planetarium, I have a super spongy creepy alien wig thing! It attacked me while I was on the phone with my sister Emily. 
Cobbler and I pose for a photo:)
Bringing Bob to stay at my house. He is Molly's, but she's letting me borrow him to help me with my anatomy homework. It helps that it's nearing Halloween. 
That's about it. I like this game:)

$teve's Day

Good Morning Ladies & Gentlemen,
The day started like any other day. I arose from my luxuriously appointed king-sized bed, showered (sorry, no pictures available), and walked about my apartment...which I really can't wait to move out of now that I'm officially moving to Denver. Here are some pictures...
Yeah, I'm in mid-move...otherwise you'd see
my degrees and awards in the display cases.
Including my soccer trophy with a misspelled name...
Damn I love my bed. It's so comfortable.
Yes, there's a TV & stereo in my closet...
and don't mind the camcorder pointed at the bed
Reason #1 that I can't wait to move out
My landlord hasn't fixed this in three years
My work desk / dining room table
Yes, that's Marilyn Monroe as my wallpaper
There's also a 5-foot cutout of her slightly to the left
Don't judge me!!!
After breakfast, I decided to go for a walk around the neighborhood despite the fact that it was the first good rainstorm in a long, long time...but I love walking in the rain...and I even open up my windows to let the rain smell in. The reason that's really weird...is my nose is pretty much for decoration only because I've broken it so many times...but I really love the smell of rain. Anyway, here's the walk...
The Poor Man's Maybach
Please notice the slightly opened windows
House for Sale + American Flag
Sadly, see this sight too much nowadays
Do the quotation marks make
Raymond Poole the ironic choice?
STOP!!! In the name of Dr. Love.
Mormon Crossing? Why is the stereotype
always a really tall guy with a suitcase
with a teenage girl in a miniskirt?
James Dean is there to greet me at the door
"Welcome back playa."
I'm also more happily greeted by Scooby Doo & Bettie Page
"Relcome home, Revie!!!"
"Where have you been, maggot?
Get upstairs. It's spankin' time."
During the day, I watched some college football on my projector TV...because honestly once you watch football on a giant wall, you really can't force yourself to go back to a 27" TV or something. I could get people hooked and charge a five buck cover charge...and ten bucks for nachos or something like that. Eat your heart out, Iggy's!!!
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Then I took a nap...because I was feeling a little ill
Oh...and the red lightbulb is for special guests
Back to football...
"Somebody get that giant dog off the field!!!"
Then it was time for the party. To be honest, I was doing more meeting & greeting than picture taking...but here's what I took. Big thanks to Boss Man B for hosting the party.
Ashley, the head of James, the Mad Scientist, & Cat
Cool, I'm in the mirror
(Notice the Eagles shirt)
Mad Scientist & From Russia with Love
They're too damn cute...
Esther, Birth of Man, & JL Clyde
Cat & the ever camera-shy Lilie
Great times!!! Then around 3:30 AM, I went home and slept...alone. (Sigh...)
