The cool cats and hot chicks in my life that sip martinis, drink cappuccinos and read bad poetry. We don't live a lifestyle, we live life...with style.

Some Recent Events (Originally Published 17 Jun 2008)
I watched, recently, the events unfold in California concerning the decision of their Supreme Court and gay marriage.I confess that, as I stood behind the bar watching the television when they announced that the state must recognize the legal right of same-sex couples as "married", I cried.Tears fell, proudly, profusely.My heart swelled with happiness.I know that it's going to be up for a referendum by the voters of that fair state in the upcoming election but I have a sneaking suspicion that the people of California will show us the way.
And to those that fear my people killing the institution of marriage, think about this; Massachusetts hasn't fallen into the Atlantic since they ratified same-sex marriages, the antichrist isn't riding with the four horsemen because of it and my breeder brothers are still getting married.

Love does that to people.All people.
I was a staunch Hillary Clinton fan.I truly believe that she has far more experience and connections than Senator Obama does and would have been a better candidate.That being said, I recently saw Barak Obama on ABC News and he stated that, although he's not behind "marriage" for same-sex couples (he prefers civil unions) he is not bothered, and I quote, "at all" by the California court's decision.He stated that firmly and with conviction.I got the feeling that to him, even though it's an issue with many in this country, it's not the crisis it's made out to be.And I agree.
He has my vote.
My father is doing well.I was a bit late for his combination Father's Day/Birthday celebration but in my defense; the fact that I made a function that was scheduled on a Sunday, when I work until gods-know-when from Saturday night, I think I did good!
My stepmother was a bit cold to me but it's something I have gotten used to.It was great to see my brat sister.
I have picked up two shifts at work, meaning, I WORK TODAY 4PM-10PM.HAPPY HOUR 4PM-7PM.Drop by.
I am a life long resident of this little island on the east coast of New Jersey and I am the walking representation of Atlantic City. Which doesn't say much for the city. I'm a professional party guest.
