Our Thoughts Are With Jennifer!

Condolences:
My Thoughts are with Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson today!

The body of her nephew Julian King was found in Chicago this morning.

I pray that Jennifer will receive a warm peace and strength from God.

Regretfully,

New Liver Needed for Bill Pritchard

Mom’s:
I would like to dedicate this BLOG to my Mom and mothers everywhere! It is the support and care of my Mom that drive me to seek those Make A Difference moments in life. She loves me in spite of being a boy (Meaning: Gender not age!) crazy queer. Thank you to all Moms out there who love, accept, and support their gay sons!

Sisters:
Seattle Sisters Trisha & Michelle Jones and Sunday Heily were in town this weekend! Sister Sunday got married to popular Seattleite, Pat Heily on Friday at the luxurious Four Seasons. My besti Isaiah joined me in having a great time of fellowship, libations, and food. I swear, those girls can keep the party going all night. I see how we’re related. (Laughs)

Uncle Tom & Aunt Coco:
It’s ALWAYS a treat to have Tommy (See Picture) and Coco (See Picture) in town! These two provide so much inspiration to me for what love really is! I just love how committed they are to one another. I met up with them at neighborhood favorite Cornelia’s. Bartender John poured his famous cosmopolitans and Advisor Edward, Bill Healy, (See Picture) and his cute friend Shawn joined us.

Return of the Socialite:
It was wonderful to have some fellowship with Socialite Hunter B. Lyon this weekend! He’d been traveling for work the last few weeks and all of Chicago went through withdrawals. Joining Hunter B. was Donald Mills, Vlad, Paul Rosie and Evan Or. I introduced Soap maven, Jim Gregory to Boystown newcomer, Darryl Sher. I was especially happy to run into cute Matt F.! I was even blessed to see my dear friend Mike Rippe with his boyfriend Philip Trampe and pals Bret & Clay Hinkle. It had been a while since I’d seen them. It was equally as nice to see damn cute Thomas Aguirre. That boy has had his shirt off a lot lately.

DaBeatz:
Don’t you just love the sounds, energy, and joy for life that DJ Phil DaBeatz provides!

SHOUT OUTS:
A special shout out goes to cute Calvin (See Photo) for all the RTU’s (Real Time Updates) throughout the weekend! Damn he’s FINE! Thanks goes to my friend Alex Choren for brunch on Sunday, My bosom friend, David Cruse Beal, My best friend Isaiah, My Facebook friends; the very cute, Vince Baer & Mike Koenig, and my very old bitch Buffy

Have a marvelous week!

Hear The Heart Beat!

Madge:
What’s a guy to do with the bad news from Madonna's rep, that she and her husband, Guy Ritchie, are getting a divorce. There’s also the buzz that the couple didn’t have a pre-nup; begging the question, who gets what!?

I guess we can’t worry too much about the always reinventing Madonna, Us Weekly is reporting that she and baseball star Alex Rodriguez "are definitely romantic." I can’t blame her; he’s hot!

Don’t be such a Dick:
Rumors are true, Vice President Dickless Cheney; who was slated to be in the state of Illinois today campaigning for Republican Marty Ozinga, had to cancel because his heart (Or lack there of) wasn’t working correctly. S U R E! Isn’t it more like the Veep knows it’s a waste of his time? Ozinga is running against LGBT friendly Congressional candidate Debbie Halvorson.

Debate:
Tonight marks the 3rd and final debate between Senators McCain and Obama. I for one love a good show and this will be just that! Obama financial guru Jamie Citron will be hosting a viewing party at Sidetrack tonight. The debate starts at 9PM Eastern.

Sisters:
My heart wells with delight in the news that Seattle Sisters Trisha & Michelle Jones and Sunday Kyrkos (See Picture Above) will be in Chicago this weekend! Sister Sunday is getting married to that Seattle Socialite, Pat Heily this Friday. Being honorary “Brother Bill, I will be in attendance. Truth is, this will be one star studded weekend with the rehearsal dinner taking place at the Peninsula Hotel, and the wedding taking place at the luxurious Four Seasons.

Happy Hump Day!

The Guy-Crazy Adventures of Bill Pritchard

Birth:
What a fun filled, action packed weekend! I really didn’t have too much on my plate, but I sure kept busy! Friday evening I met up with Advisor Edward and Dr. Drew down at Jack’s on Halsted. Enjoying some terrific fellowship with Bartender Drew and Jack himself! What a great venue.

I stopped by Minibar|Winebar to see Boystown Crush, Kirk McNamara. What a damn impressive person he is! Every time I listen to Kirk, I learn something new. It’s especially refreshing to know someone with drive, passion, and determination to make a difference. These among all of his assets makes Kirk worthy of being my Boystown Crush! I was happy to see a lot of pals out and about. I was especially delighted to see Michigan birthday boy, Calvin (See Picture Above) in town. He and I know one another from MySpace. Heavens, what a nice guy! Many of my readers are familiar with my being a bit guy-crazy. Its guys like Calvin that makes me crazy like that. He’s really super sweet and well. .damn FINE! What do you think!?!??

Fabulous Foozie:
Saturday I met up with Arthur to go to Miss Foozie’s Fabulous Varity Show at Circuit Nightclub. I have to say, these shows get better and better each month. This month the show starred, Paula Sinclaire, Monique Marquette, Miss Foozie’s Foozette Dancer Brad, Comedian Marc Peurye; and return guest stars: Velicity Metropolis and Lila Star. Of course the super sweet Mike Kosko was on hand greeting everyone!

Sitting at our table was GoPride.com’s Enterprise Brand Manager Mike Livingston and Paul Rosenkranz. This was Paul’s first drag show. Poor kid looked like he’d seen a ghost. What a special treat it was to see the Grand Duchess and JP in attendance as well! They were all fine in their Sunday best!

Nice Stalking With Ya:
I went up to Scarlet to have a beverage with One of the Paul’s and Mike. No doubt about it; it was packed in there. What an adventure. I ran into the super cute Adam H. who was dancing his buns off. I had a bit of an odd conversation with a drunk friend so I high tailed it out of there to go rejoin Paul Rosenkranz at Minibar|Winebar. I just love running into everyone! I also had another Calvin (See Photo Above) sighting. Whew!

Darling Debbie:
Normally I keep Sunday’s to myself, but this last Sunday I hosted an LGBT Reception in honor of Congressional candidate Debbie Halvorson. We threw it at the Hearty Boys Catering Kitchen on Broadway. Oh my word! What a great venue! I was pleased to run into Samantha Travis and Frank Elliott. I think you will be hearing more about these two in the next few months!

FINE:
Did I mention that Calvin (See Picture Above) is seriously beautiful? What!?!? It’s just a tiny crush. It will go away.

SHOUT OUTS:
Facebook pal, Mike Koenig, My dear friend, Ronnie Kroell, my best friend, Isaiah, Piano instructor, Freddy Allen, Seattle’s very own, Jamile Mack, My doll, Matthew Barrett, (See Picture) my Mom and Dad, and my old bitch Buffy

Have a great week!
