Well kids, I'm BACK!!! Florida was wonderful. I only stayed a week this time as I had to dogsit one of my best friends creatures (Golden Retrievers) and I wanted to be back by Halloween. Lots of fun. The weather was about half good. It rained cats and dogs for a couple of days I was there. Then there was a couple of sunny days and then it turned cold. My ass can go on a beach just about anytime - EXCEPT when it is 50 degrees out. Brrr... I went to a couple of boy bars and realized how much I missed Memphis in that aspect...
I had some really good visits with some friends. The most special time was when my friend Jack saw me and said "welcome home". That's when I realized that Sarasota is just as much home for me as Memphis is. I may not have as many friends there but what I lack in quantity, I make up for in quality.
Tonite I am going to my neighbors house for trick or treating and wine drinking. I have never stayed in my hood for Halloween. As it turns out, Halloween is the anniversary of my heart attack. That was 14 years ago today. It has only been in the past couple of years that I have gotten back in the spirit of Halloween and in a lot of ways it is exciting. I am going as the biker from the Village People. We'll see if I am the laughing stock.
Check out the pics that I took... all taken by me except for the hot boys, which I wish I could take... :-)

It's that time again! Time to go sit my fat, happy ass on a beach in Florida for a week. I use that term "fat" loosely and advisedly, as I am returning to the Sunshine State about 20 pounds lighter than when I was last there. Can't WAIT to see all my peeps down there. I will post some pics when I return for the one or two readers that still drop by. I am going to work on being a better poster. I'll try hard, but I can't be CB... Now if I can just find me a big hunk of man-meat like these boys, then life will truly be excellent...
Later Peeps --

I have officially HAD it with people. I have discovered that I just plain don't like them. Just now, I was in the breakroom talking with a coworker. We were the only ones in there, so I was speaking in a normal tone of voice. Some goofturd intern walks in and goes to the snack machine to get something that will make him even fatter. So, not wanting the whole world to know of what I was speaking, I lower my voice. My friend does the same. After we conclude the conversation, we are giggling and walking off. Goofturd proceeds to inform us that "its not polite to whisper, people". WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?!? Who in the FUCK does he think he is?!?!?!? I was not speaking to him because I do not nor do I ever want to know this little fucktard with Head Up Ass Syndrome. God Almighty.
Not to mention that I cannot STAND bad drivers. I seem to have encountered EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM IN MEMPHIS today. And I have not even gone home yet where I am sure I will encounter more of these boils on the butt of humanity. I have been pissy all day over stupid people, but the intern just took the cake. I just need to breathe deeply ... and get laid...preferably by one of these. Yeah, that would make me feel better...

Well, not too terribly much to report new in my life...except that I have lost another 2 pounds! That brings my grand total to 18 so far. I am hoping to loose at least another 10 if I can. I have been lifting weights like a fiend, so my actual weight may not go down that far.
On other fronts...so looking forward to this weekend. My bestest friend is coming in town from Philly and I can't wait to see him tonight. I have this feeling there are going to be a couple of late nights clubbing and drinking for us drunks.
Also, we in the great city of Memphis (not) will have a big art and craft fair that hopefully I can go to on Sunday (if I am not too tired from partying). That's about it folks. Told you...nothing too exciting.
