Volunteering

What’s my resolution for 2020? I don’t have one. In my gay opinion we shouldn’t put that sort of pressure on ourselves to improve, instead we should be a little more excepting of who we are. Why mess with perfection, I always say. So this year I’m feeling grateful for the things I have and…

Christmas

In my gay opinion, Christmas is just like any other day of the year, the only difference is I get two extra days off from work that don’t count against my vacation days. Now that is something worth celebrating. Christmas makes me feel bad for the people who stress the meal prep and who start…

Giving Thanks

This month people have been trying my patience….let me rephrase that, people have been trying my patience more than usual. Nicely put, I’ve been dealing with a bunch of whiny bitches who I want to smack as well as people who are in bad situations that I could have easy found myself in but can’t…

Halloween

In my gay opinion, Halloween is for kids. This year I was thinking back to my childhood and only remember my last Halloween trick or treating. Picture it, Sicily 1942 (sorry, I’ve been watching too much The Golden Girls), more like Meriden, 1984. For those unfamiliar with world-renowned Meriden, back then it was a small…

My September started out with a bang. Normally my partner and I aren’t Labor Day travelers, who wants to deal with crowds and traffic.

Expose

The end of August is a sad time, it’s the end of summer and it’s time to gear up for winter…sure there’s fall in between but it’s short lived. I don’t ski and get no pleasure from being trapped home by a blizzard…although snow days from work are nice. Unfortunately, like the great divas Expose…

Once In A Lifetime Opportunities

Life is full of lessons that you’re forced to learn, and let me tell you, I learned a lot this month. I was physically knocked out of commission for the whole month due to a pinched nerve in my neck. It effected my back, shoulder and right arm. I spent so much time Netflix and…

Weddings And Funerals

Funerals and weddings are my least favorite ways to spend time. I have to dress up in a shirt and tie to attend a formal ritual of zero interest. This month I had a memorial service and wedding within 48 hours of each other, boy am I glad that’s over with. Funerals, memorial services, celebrations…
