Sucky Monday/Crying on the bus

I hate Mondays. I decided to cheer myself up by listening to the Sondheim concert at Carnegie Hall. And this lady made me cry. SO GOOD.

Nice weekend

Friday night I met up with the Queens for dinner and a Fringe show. The dinner was great, at Chickie Pigs, and the show was okay. Eh. After, I went over to Cricket's for a bottle of Argentinian wine and a Hedwig documentary. Then it was a quick cab home, to change for drinks with Sir Willio and his Beau (for now) at That Bar. It was a really productive and date-filled evening. I awoke around 11 and waited as long as I could before calling Ad-orable to see what we were going to do on our date. We decided to see Super Bad in his hood. The movie was really cute & funny alot like my date. After, he showed me his apartment and then I went on my way as he had to get ready to hang out with his parents. I walked down from the UES to H&M and then caught the bus to go and meet Cricket for dinner at Chipotle. YUM-0. Then we met up with Sir W and Beau to see The Simpsons Movie. It was great fun. Then we ended up back at That Bar for more drinks. Today, I got groceries and picked up my laundry. Then had a great conversation with Sister Chad while doing my best to straighten up Noodle's room (the living room) as she'll be back for a bit and on the futon. I watched Serendipity and cried my face off, and thought, I might as well blog about this delightful little weekend. Next, I'll be making philly cheese steaks while watching Big Brother. HOLLA!
I forgot...I GOT MY DEMO ON FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Doodle dates his friends/Whoretastic '07

Friday Darladiva and I thought it would be a GREAT idea to get wasted on the UES. Why? Why not? Mad River has a $7 cover and then $1 drinks. Yes, $1 drinks. That's $1. We had some appetizers at Arriba Arriba (who knew they had one in suburbia?), and then headed over to Nerdy Scientist Frat Fest '07. "Can we open a tab?" "Sure, but it's a $20 minimum." Um, it takes 20 drinks to get to that min. Well, we did it, somehow. Then headed over to the piano bar Brandy's. We had a gay old time. Then we poured each other into cabs to head home. On the way home, my taxi took me right by THAT BAR and so I had him drop me off there. I ended up chatting with this one guy who knew The BF back when he was Tommy. It was the first time I had spoken to him post-BF and it was quite interesting. Then I fell asleep for a moment. When I awoke there was an Adorable boy next to me. As I recall, we instantly starting making out and then I...whore. I might actually like someone that I've...whore. I'll let ya'll know.

Saturday was spent with Adorable in my bat cave, with anticipations of meeting Cricket for Sicko and convermesations. Adorable went on his way and I got ready for my second date of the weekend. Cricket and I met in Union Square and headed over to the movie. It was fantastic. It was maddening. It was eye-opening. Go see it. As someone who doesn't have health insurance right now, it made my stomach churn to know that in Canada, or the UK or (gasp!) France, people just go to the doctor when they need to. There is NO bill at the end. There is no, "how much am I going to have to put on my credit card this time." That doesn't exist. YIKES SIGH KILL ME. After the movie, we had drinks at that cute little outdoor place in Union Square. We shared some watery sangria, but it was lovely. Cricket had to run off to wake up at the butt crack of dawn to teach the masses how to bend it like Gumby. I decided to walk from Union Square through Chelsea and maybe have a drink at Splash or the like. Splash was terrifying so I kept walking. After being heckled by some stupid LI teens (been a LONG time since I've been heckled, I must say), I ended up at View. It was pretty fun. I met Big Eyes Big Lips and made out with him for a while and then walked him to the train. Headed toward home I saw a particular kind of club that I had been before with The BF. "Hmm, might be fun by myself." It was terrifying, but Cutie McCoif showed up and it got better...until I left at 6:30am (erohw) WHAT?

Sunday FINALLY means brunch again. I met Madame Renea Knight at our old haunting ground (that's fun to say) FC Cafe. The conversation was great, the service, not so much. But, as always, great to hang out with the MRK. Girl, you got such a f'ing great head on your shoulders and you're not afraid to fill it with booze. LOVE YOU.

And that was my weekend of dating my friends/((you))know))))

More gay cartoons to come.

My Mom’s 50th Birthday or D10 LaGuardia’s first Gay Bar

So I left work around 11:50 am on Friday and it was POURING. I managed to get to JFK by about 1:15 pm or so. I checked the board and everything looked okay, except that the flight before mine had been canceled. So I went and had a drink. Then I got a message on my phone from American with flight status, saying that it would be departing at 4:50 instead of 3:15. YIKES! I got about 10 more calls that kept changing the departure time, 4:50, 3:30, 4:30, on time, nope 4:50. So I finally went and spoke to someone and they said the flight had not taken off from where it was coming from; it had been on the runway since 1:20. Ugh. So it turns out that if the plane ever actually did show up I would definitely miss my connection to Austin and be stuck in Raleigh-Durham N.C. (ew). So they rerouted me to LGA, so I could connect through Dallas (at least I'd be in the right state if I was stuck). So I hopped on the shuttle and made my way to LGA. This flight was supposed to leave at 6 but was delayed to 6:30. It was then delayed to 7:25 and then delayed to 7:40. So I was stuck in LGA with a million other people with nothing to do but wait. I went over to this drink cart, not a bar, a cart, but they were serving booze. On my way over I see this very cute boy sitting on the ground, we smile. I get a drink and then ask him if I can sit with him. His name is JR. He's waiting for a flight to Chicago because he's going to Market Days (which is like gay-palooza Chicago style or something). He wanted me to come with him, but I told him I couldn't ditch my mom. Then after a while two other gays were near us, and I invited them to come and chat with us. I made a gay bar on the floor of LGA at Gate D10. What can I say? Anyhoo, they hung out with me, and insisted that we all call my mother to wish her happy birthday, until I FINALLY got on the plane which left a little after 8pm. There was very little chance that I was going to make my connection in Dallas which was to leave at 10:45. It turns out that my connection was delayed to 11:08 and I made it about 2 minutes before boarding. I got in at midnight. Lord.

So Friday night my mom, grandma and I stayed up ‘til about 2 talking, then went to bed. Woke up and got ready and tried to help my brother with the digital picture frame he got my mom. We could not make it work. Then Shane and I took Madison over to Nathan's where everyone was gathering before heading to the catering location wedding place where the party was. There were 900 children and they were all blonde. Umm, the party was really fun. It was so hot outside and humid and I was basically soaking wet the whole time, but yeah, my mom had a great time. And as a surprise my best friend from my childhood, Ronda Ray was there. Neither of us knew the other was coming so it was really fun to see her and hang out with her. And nice to have someone not related to me to chat with. There were so many relatives. Then yesterday I got up and had breakfast and then my mom brought me to the airport. All these flights went perfectly. AND on each flight the attendant bought me a drink. Weird. I actually got in early. I was on the shuttle back to Manhattan around 7:25. and now I'm ready for a weekend.

I have two weekends free and then I am off to reunite with my best friend from high school for her wedding!!! And then I’m not traveling for a while, unless the Parodivas get asked to guest star on some Hollywood show, then I might be up on a plane again.

“Planet Unicorn, Heyyy!”

Bloggety blog

I haven’t blogged in a hundred years. Oy. I can’t log in or view blogs when filming episodes of The Temp and by the time I get home from work and the gym, I just…can’t. So I’m writing this at work, going to email it to myself at home so that I can just cut and paste into a new post. We shall see. Tonight Darladiva and I are seeing Hairspray. I’m very excited. I hope John Travolta doesn’t annoy the crap out of me so I can enjoy it. I’ve heard good things about the movie. Anyhoo, yay for diva dates. We had such a wonderful time performing together again for Tip My Cup. It was a nice reminder of how well we really do work together. We made some new friend/fans, handed out cards and promised a full Parodivas show in the Fall. That’s right ya’ll. We’ve been working on the script and it’s coming together. We’re starting to talk about venues, etc. So stay tuned.

On Friday, I am flying to Austin for my mother’s 50’th birthday. Her present to herself was getting me a plane ticket. So I requested off work and they said fine, so I am going. It will be a crazy whirlwind trip of less than three days, but at least I get to see her and every other Texan I never knew I was related to. I haven’t seen her for a year and haven’t seen my brother in I don’t know how long. Crazy.

Other than that, not much else is going on. It seems they are interested in changing The Temp into a spin-off called The Perm. I’m going to see what the ($) offer is and really consider it. I really like this role. I hope I continue to. The thing is they are courting me, so it’s a welcomed change from my last sitcom. What a disaster that was. So glad to be out of there.

Guess that’s all for now. Noodle is back on tour so she may be blogging again. Check her out.

Peace McDoodle
