Bonsoir Blago!

Bye Bye Blago!
Illinois Governor Milorod Blagojevich (See Picture With Yours Truly Above) has been impeached by the Illinois House of Representatives today. The vote was 114-1. You gotta wonder what that one person was thinking. (Laugh out loud) The state Senate now deals with the question of whether to remove “ROD” from office. It’s all pretty sad really. Here Illinois was golden with the election of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States, and then this taints it. Good riddance Governor!

A Proud Friend
When I see someone succeed in their life’s goals, I am truly one happy camper. When I see a dear friend do it, I’m even more elated! It gives me great joy to see JR Cranston fulfilling his dream of being a DJ! Many of you know JR from his work making breeders row hot spot, John Barleycorn so successful. He truly knows how to make an evening perfect! Now dJR (See Picture) takes that service and sound to the clubs of Chicago. Hydrate is featuring dJR this Saturday at INFERNO. A $10 donation to Chicago House provides a hosted bar featuring Absolut cocktails from 9-10:30PM!

Happy New Year QUEER!

New:
What a festive time to think about all the great blessings we’ve been given and the challenges we’ve overcome. Giving up resolutions, I am all about the daily promise to myself and those I care for, to make a difference!

With Thanks!:
Keeping an attitude of gratitude, I really owe any success of 2008 to the warm love and care of a few people. Without question, Mom and Father, are the foundation of my life. Their steadfast love and support is above and beyond!

My Best Friend, Isaiah, is undoubtedly the greatest person I’ve ever known. His accountability, care, and friendship truly make a difference in me!

True, my close friends are what sustain me every day, and this BLOG clearly shows who they are.

Finally, I am indebted to the amazing team here at ChicagoPride.com for allowing me to partner with them on the Make A Difference mission. In particular I want to thank Steve Long, Jason P. Freeman, Matthew Inawat, Mike Livingston, and of course Miss Foozie!

Play safe this evening and enjoy time with family and friends!

Cheers!

Home Sweet Homo!

Welcome Back:

With major airport delays, I made it home. You just don’t get a better greeting from being gone on a trip than you do from a loyal old dog! My bitch Buffy (See Picture Above) ran to the door with errf’s, (def: The sound she makes that is not quite a bark; but close.) snorts, and lots of kisses. I had a relative that once said “The best part about going on a trip is coming home!”. I think they were right.

I had a very nice time in Seattle, but I was ready for a normal schedule again. Although I adore seeing my Mother and Father, the sever snow really put a damper in my Seattle plans. I was able to see most of my family and enjoy some time at the family residence. (It had been so long since I’ve been there!)

Consistency:

Saturday morning brought the return of my weekly breakfast with my best friend Isaiah. It had been too damn long since we were able to do that. It’s a time that I really look forward to.

Back In Business:

Later that evening I had the pleasure enjoying drinks with Advisor Edward at his place. We then moved to the very busy Cornelia’s (Smile)

Saying good evening to Edward, I walked with Ben Hartman to Minibar to meet up with Isaiah. Once again I was able to enjoy the music of my pal DJ Phil DaBeatz. I also ran into Jeffery Vander Meade and Bill Healy It was so nice to be around all my pals and making new ones!

Favorite:

Once a month my pal DJ Scotty Thomson spins at Hydrate. I just love to listen to his work. He’s really damn good! At/around 5:00 AM, I decided to head home to the bitch.

SHOUT OUTS: Nathaniel who looks like Vlad, Gregory Rein, My bosom friend, David, My gal-pal, Jake Conrad, my ex, Jesse, Former roommates, Rippe & Clyde, My good friends, Alex Choren and Jason Maldonado, My dear pal Ronnie Kroell, Barf Happy, Adrienne Holt, and my faithful old bitch Buffy

Cheers!

Ho Ho SNOW!

Cabin Fever:
Greetings from a very snowy Seattle my friends! (McCain really ruined that one didn’t he!)

It feels SO damn good to be able to blog again! I’ve been somewhat stuck in Seattle since Saturday with no internet. It would seem that the city (Although wonderful in most every way,) shuts down when the snow comes. They’ve had almost a foot here too!

Wonderfully, I’ve been enjoying this forced vacation with good food, wine, and fellowship from 4x4 friends! As always, I am staying in my family’s guest flat in the Pike Place Market. (See Photo) If you’ve never been to Seattle; the Farmers Market is the city’s biggest tourist attraction. It is such a damn charming place.

With all this time on my hands I’ve been enjoying some books and doing a bit of writing. I’ve especially enjoyed taking calls from some of you over the last few days. I need to do this “not busy” thing more often!

I hope this finds you all well as the Christmas holiday approaches. Doesn’t it feel like just yesterday that we were celebrating the holiday!?

SHOUT OUTS:
My best friend, Isaiah, Super cute/sweet, Arthur Chaney; Advisor Edward; Scarlet’s cute Thursday night hostess, Mike Kosko, Fruit flyAdrienne Holt, My dear friend, Ronnie Kroell, Seattle’s very own, Jamile Mack, My doll, Matthew Barrett, GoPride.com’s Enterprise Brand Manager Mike Livingston, My friends, Bill Healy, DJ Scotty Thomson & Greg Rein, My bosom friend, David Cruse Beal, Doggie sitter, Virginia Jones and said doggie, Buffy

I will be back in time for New Queers Eve!

XOXOX

Sweets For The Sweets!

World of Chocolate:
I hope you will all join me this evening at the The AIDS Foundation of Chicago’s signature event, the World of Chocolate. (See Picture Above) This is always the start of the holiday season for me! It’s so damn festive!

I will be a guest judge again this year as will my partner in crime, ChicagoPride.com's own Miss Foozie! (See Picture) I’ve been equally blessed in having the damn sweet Mike Kosko as my date. Somehow I think he and I will have a party within the party!

The World of Chocolate will feature yummy chocolate creations from more than 30 of Chicagoland’s finest restaurants, caterers, and chocolatiers in the Make A Difference effort to raise awareness, while celebrating the world's achievements, in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Tickets will be available via phone today until 4pm and will also be available at the door for $100.

Hear Ye, Hear Ye!:
Arriving tomorrow for the weekend is my sainted Father! (See Picture) Be on the lookout for us; and be sure to say hello!

SHOUT OUTS:
Childhood Crush & Birthday Girl, Therese Victory, Barf Happy, Adrienne Holt, and my faithful old bitch Buffy

Cheers!
