Supercalifragilisticexpialipodcast, whew that's a mouthful

Those wild and wacky boys over at the Feast of Fun invited me over to chat again - I guess they're just gluttons for punishment if you as me!

We had an amazing time talking about Mary Poppins (my current fascination) as well as that ShamWOW guy who got beat up by a hooker in Florida.

We also had an interview with Debra Taylor, the Oklahoma school teacher who got fired for teaching her Ethics class about Hatecrimes and using the Laramie Project as the course material. Her Superintendent didn't like that she was teaching about homosexuals and shut down her course - totally not PC!

Listen to the show here

Is this offensive, or is it just me?

Apparently I'm a little late to the game....just in time for the Inauguration of our 44th President - all the way back in January - someone came out with the Obama Chiahead.

You can buy it over here for only $19.95

Did I miss the Bush Chia Head?

Are you in the mood to protest? Help is needed in Arlington Heights: http://tr.im/hHDS

I want to meet those people

One of the interesting things about Amazon is that when you look at a specific product they show you great combinations of products (to get you to buy more stuff at a discount) but they also show you things that other people bought at the same time.

For example, if you bought a personal massage unit it may show that people also bought batteries - that makes sense doesn't it?

Well I came across this Vacuum Marinade System and at $72 it was a little too out of my price range for what it does....but the interesting thing is what they show as an "Also Bought"

Uhm....who buys a Vacuum Marinade unit AND not just an electric razor, but.....a Bodygroomer ...ewh, I do NOT want them making dinner for me!

wonders what this 'March Madness' is that everyone is talking about. Is it like Mad Cow Disease? Should I be worried?

Why are the grocery stores packed on a monday? Did everyone forget to in shopping over the weekend?

Dixie Longate meets the Bears

What happens when you take a Luxury Coach, stock it with beer and vodka, fill it with bears and point it towards the suburbs of Chicago?

No, we didn't have passports, no we didn't burst into flames when we passed Western Avenue and no we didn't end up at an Outlet Mall!

Instead we went to a Tupperware Party, specifically Dixie Longates Tupperware Party!!! WHOO HOOO!!!

Remember last year when I headed off on a Roadtrip? I had been alerted to the existence of Dixie Longate by the delectable StevieB who had arranged his own caravan to travel from Denver, CO to the comfy confines of Des Moines, IA to attend Dixie's Tupperware Party. I just couldn't pass up the chance to meet a fellow blogger AND a the fabulous Dixie Longate so I jumped in my car and headed over there myself.

It was while I was there that I found out that she was coming to Chicago and I just knew that if I had driven 6 hours - alone - in a car - that would just have to go see her again, especially since she was so close, but of course I didn't want to go alone, I had to take my friends with me.

After I returned from Des Moines I called a buddy of mine that is known for throwing some fabulous parties and setting up an annual bus trip to the Gay Rodeo down in Crete, IL to see if he would be interested in collaborating on a trip to see Dixie.

Fortunately, I was able to convince them that boys would be interested in seeing a Drag Queen sell Tupperware and we started filling up the bus.

After months of careful planning it all came together on Saturday as we jumped on the bus, put on our seatbelts and got ready for a bumpy ride (and not because of all of the potholes that line the streets of Chicago).

We had a bus full of Gay Boys/Bears and 2 Lesbians - heck we needed someone to change the tire on the bus if we got a flat - and headed out to the burbs to buy some amazing plastic crap!

After we got on the road dance music was jamming on the stereo and we were handing out cocktails and beer getting the boys into the "buying mood" that Dixie likes so much.

We arrived in Aurora just in time for the boys to have a quick smoke, grab another cocktail and find their seat in the theater.

For some reason I thought that it wouldn't be an event without beads, and you know what, I was right. As I was passing tickets out to everyone I made sure that I slipped some beads over their necks. Fortunately I had some left over and when I entered the theater with a handful of beads....oh my those straight girls went crazy!

I don't think I've had that many women after me...well EVER! As I was walking to my seat a woman with the nametag of "Sandy" on it coyly called me over to say hello....only to find out, she wasn't interested in me but wanted my beads instead. She even offered to flash me to get some beads but I told her "Oh no you don't! But hey, let me go get the Lesbians quick, they'll probably enjoy it!" After I doled out the last of my beads to the straight girls they tossed me to the side and told me to find my own seat as my services were no longer required! Oh those girls!!!

As always Dixie had the audience in stitches, literally she cut them with a knife and then she stitched them back up (no she didn't) but she had us laughing the whole time. My stomach hurt from laughing so much.

During the show Dixie called some audience members up to the stage to compete in a Rimming Contest! Two of our bus crew were picked to go up against two straight girls to see who the best rimmers were - and can you believe it? The gay boys won! And no, it's not the type of rimming you are thinking about right now, what kind of Tupperware Show would that be?

After the show Dixie met everyone out in the foyer and took pictures, signed autographs and shamed people into buying some Tupperware, I mean it is a Tupperware Party after all!

We then reluctantly all got back on the bus, only reluctantly because we were having so much fun with Dixie that we didn't want it to end, but at the same time everyone was a little bit afraid of having to spend the night in the burbs! We got back into the city, just in time for Midnight Shots at Big Chick's!

I just can't get enough of Dixie. I was talking with a friend of mine that lives in Dallas, TX and told him Dixie was coming to his neck of the woods in May. At which point he said "Well why don't you come down?" Hmmm....me seeing Dixie in three different cities that aren't in any that I live in....does that make me a stalker? Not as long as the police aren't involved it doesn't!

So, how was your weekend?

What's Next?

I can't believe that some parent is going to buy this decapitated head of Batman and give it to their child as an Easter Basket.

St Patricks' day isn't even here yet and they're already stuffing fake easter basket grass on us. Is this what Easter has become? Well this and candy!

Does anyone even remember what Easter is about any more? All of these holidays just run from one into the other, I give up!

Wednesday, March 04, 2009

just heard that Tina Turner is going to do an intervention between Rhianna and Chris Brown, is that what they refer to as "ironic"

How are you healthy?

Lifelube has just started a new campaign and they're asking gay men "How are you healhty?"

Jim Pickett was so kind to ask for my input so I wrote a few little paragraphs for them.

Today is a Square Root Day

That's right, all day today it's a Square Root Day - something that only happens three times a century.

Three times in 100 years!

What's a Square Root Day? Well it's when the month and day can be multiplied to equal the year.

Today is March 3, 2009 which can be mathematically written as:

3 x 3 = 9


√9 = 3


3² = 3 x 3 = 9

The last Square Root Day was on February 2, 2004 (2 x 2 = 4) and the next one won't happen for 7 more years on April 4, 2016 (4 x 4 = 16) and then we're done for the century.

Don't miss it and make sure you tell all your friends that TODAY IS A SQUARE ROOT DAY, make your Math teacher proud.

Fire at 1040 W Hollywood

Oh crap...there was a fire right down the street from my house.

Apparently people were trapped on the third floor, I hope that everyone is ok.

There are firetrucks and buses and ambulances all over the place.

My photos on The Windy Citizen

How cool is this......The Windy Citizen has posted some of my photos from the Lyric Opera Backstage Tour as their "Photos of the Day"

We went backstage at the Lyric Opera

My friends John and Todd and I went to the "behind the scenes" tour at the Lyric Opera of Chicago this past weekend.

I do not understand ESPN Classic. Why would you re-watch a game when you already know the outcome?!?
