Ya know, my partner and I joke around a lot about what we’d do if we won the lotto. Today, I was thinking what would I really do if I won? The obvious, I’d pay off all my debt, my partners, and most of my closets friends. I’d buy a house or two in key places in the US that I like to visit. Then what? The next obvious…I’d give loads away to charity. (Notice the order that charity comes in) Its my blog so gotta be honest right? The more I thought about it, I seem to come up w/more things I wouldn’t do.
I wouldn’t buy a mansion or a house that would require more than 2 people to clean it. On that same note, I wouldn’t buy a house so big that I’d have to isolate myself from my neighbors. I wouldn’t buy more than 2 cars. I mean, how many cars does one really need? I’d probably settle on a hybrid truck and a nice sports car.
I wouldn’t try to go to every who’s who event in town. I’m just not that type of person. I’m very outgoing, spontaneous, and definitely know how to work a room. That said, I do it for pure interaction not so I can be seen.
I guess the point I’m trying to make is I wouldn’t change my life so much that I no longer connected with the world around me. Our interaction w/others is what teaches us and keeps us human. Call me silly, but thats what I’d do….
My partner is involved in a charity event and today was auctioned off for $4100.00 Apparently, it was the highest single auction bid in the history of this particular charity. The fact that every dollar goes to the charities in question only makes the day that much sweeter. Kudos to him for doing such a fantastic job. (I’ll post the pic as soon as I get the digital camera connectin fixed).
On a completely shallow note, something funny happened today. I guess I should start out w/a little background history. I used to be very skinny. I mean bone skinny. I’ve been working really hard these last few years to really put on some muscle. Especially, this last year. And I have to say . . . its working. I’ve gained almost 2 inches on my chest and arms since January. I’m very proud of myself. Anyway, back to the story.
There is this guy I see at the gym often. I used to “cruise” him and he always gave me the cold shoulder. And not just indifference but sort of rude/snubby sort of way. So today, he comes up to me, asks my name, and wants to know if I’d like to “get together” sometime. (thats “lets boink” in hoe language)
The reason I bring it up is I was torn in my response. I wasn’t sure to be snubby and return the same cold shoulder he always gave me or to accept. I’m curious to see what others would do in the same scenario. I admit I’m still very attracted to him yet a part of me resents him for only wanting to know me now. It wasn’t like I was fat before or overly pushy in my “cruising”. I’m pretty quick on the uptake, if you don’t show any interest, I look elsewhere. What would you have done?
They can give $35 MILLION to the faith based initiatives but screw increasing the Ryan White Act Funding. Explain to me how that would make sense to anyone but a narrow minding, republican?
This is the reason people need to get out and vote! Lets face it people The Ryan White Acct is the single LARGEST funding program for people w/HIV and disabling AIDS. And our glorious president, who preached inclusiveness and tolerance, has formed a committee that has recommended to NOT increase funding for the Act.
I’ve been poking around some other blogs and I’ve discovered some nifty ideas and plug-ins for my own blog. I’ve added a MOOD pic which is HI-larious and a Shoutbox. At first, I thought I had to be a paying member but I guess they did away w/that part of this site.
Anway, I’m just home from being a very bad boy so I’m off to bed. (don’t ask)
