What an odd day... 
8th-Jun-2005 09:04 pm
The good news is that the antihistamine combination I'm taking hs been quite effective today, I could smell AND taste the dinner I made! I thought I was coming down with a fever earlier, turns out it was just a hot flash of some sort.

My beautiful, extraordinary sweet D will be home tomorrow evening and I am looking forward to taking him in my arms and holding him more than you can imagine. This is the longest that we've ever been apart, and the farthest distance we've ever endured away from one another. And to tell the truth, it's made me feel very out of sorts. We'll make up for it next week as I'll have the entire house to myself while the family is off visiting Mickey Mouse and the like.

Welcome to all of the new people who have added me, feel free to plunder my icon repository and take anything you like - there something there for everyone. With almost 250 icons, there damned well should be!

I feel very calm with the promise of my boy coming home to me tomorrow. I've been extremely clingy this week and anyone who knows me knows that I'm rarely like that for extended periods of time. Perhaps I'm just becoming more affectionate, who knows. I think it would br great if that were the case, I know that he for one would be much happier. And several of my friends as well. Don't schedule the cuddle party or anything, that shit creeps me out. Fuckin' cuddle parties. No sex? No dry humping? Fuck off, just FUCK OFF!! That's like giving me an empty bun when I'm hungry and telling me it's really a hamburger or something. "Think it and be it, okay?" Um, no.

I'm looking forward to being in Atlanta during Pride weekend, to have the opportunity to meet so many new friends and hug and kiss the people I love while celebrating such a great communal sense of solidarity, there's just nothing else quite like it. I've already decided that I'll be making a video post during the parade march. It's going to be incredible seeing people's reactions who have never experienced it, I think that is possibly my favorite part of it. Being in an environment where for once you are part of the majority has got to be one of the most liberating experiences you can imagine.

Upcoming Posts in honor of Pride month:
  • Transgendered Folks, and why I have a special place in my heart for them
  • AIDS facts, myths, and why it is still a "gay disease" in some people's eyes
  • The Passion of Harvey Milk
  • Films I Revere
  • Activating your inner activist
  • Marriage equality
  • Learning to love & respect yourself, because we've all cried from being shit on enough already
Any other subjects you'd like to see me tackle while I'm at it?

Oh those are just several levels of wrong.

Call me weird, but I'd enjoy a cuddle party. Sure, I love sex, but I'm all about the cuddling... can't ever get enough of it.

I dunno, man. I'm a cuddler, too, but there's just something... not correct... about cuddle parties.
9th-Jun-2005 11:50 am (UTC) - WEIRDO!!
With someone I'm close to, sure - with a bunch of needy strangers who are going to cry and require more attention than I'm willing/capable of giving, just no.

Oh, man! Go into why marriage is legally recognized if it's a church institution. Just ram up the whole seperation of church and state. -grins-
9th-Jun-2005 03:30 am (UTC)
Because marriage is the legal term and matrimony is the religious one? Oh yeah - all over that.

I am SO looking forward to your video correspondence. " This is Jude, coming to you live from the thick of it..."

Ooh, one more thing...

You gave us a bunch of Chrisitan Anti-Gay links - the ones full of crazy bastards.
Are there ANY out there you can find that are Christian pro-Gay, live and let live? Or gay Chrisitan co? Is there such a thing? I wouldn 't even know how to google something like that. I guess that is why I minster in my posts. Plus, I am lazy and I want YOU to give me the low down. Damn... I know, I know... I'm going to go Google Gay Christian Coalition right now... make me work for my own info... grumble grumble...
9th-Jun-2005 03:31 am (UTC)
That is actually a good idea, but I'm not sure I would know either.
9th-Jun-2005 03:40 am (UTC)
It's not easy finding such information... and that makes me mad/sick/sad...
I found this though:

Learning to love & respect yourself, because we've all cried from being shit on enough already

Looking forward to that one :)

Glad D is coming home today!

It's going to be the last one, so this all ends on a positive note.

Me too, he called earlier as he was heading to the airport!

I really love reading your journal because I *always* learn something important. Sounds like this month will be even more interesting :)

Hope he has a safe flight! I saw pics of you two together on your LJ and you guys sure make a handsome couple. I can really see that love lives there.

Knock yourself out, you'll find a lot there to suit you.

I would love to hear about all the first timers reactions to the pride event..you could post it in an interview style or sumpthin
this will be my first
I'm going to the DC Pride parade this saturday with Mr Hotness
and then the festivities on sunday
9th-Jun-2005 01:06 pm (UTC)
I want you to do this for me - I want you to throw yourself completely into the event, I want you to experience the feeling of being in the majority for once, and I want you to commit as much to memory as possible and write it out after. I cannot wait for your reaction, I'd give almost anything to be by your side for that day. In a way, I will be. That's something else - imagine that I'm there with you. :-)
