I'm Still Here...

I should apologize... I haven't posted anything in a while... I've been in a funk, that I can't seem to get out of... I also want to thank everyone for the kind words, while Jerry was in the hospital and after he passed... Thank You...

There has been a lot going on... About a month ago, my sister (Cinny) called to tell me that her hairdresser had quit and she wanted to start coming to Atlanta to get her hair done... She was here this past Saturday... I did my Sister's and Niece's hair, while my brother in law and nephew went to the movies and shopping... It was their first time in the big gay hairdresser's Big Gay Salon... They don't come to Atlanta often... (the big city lol) It was nice, we went to dinner and then they left to go back home... I had been worried about my niece and nephew... Not knowing how they would react to my being gay, and given my surroundings... Well... My niece (19) already knew... Go figure, and my nephew (14) absolutely oblivious... After all he is me as a kid (LOL)... We had a good time tho... (YAY).

A few of my clients have been talking about the Landmark Forum... Self help seminars... Oddly enough one of my clients does the seminars and forum... With all this talk lately from my clients... I was thinking of taking the seminar myself... Maybe help me figure "me" out a little...
Here's the thing tho... I'm saving money to go on my vacation (more about that later) My nephew has been on me to get an Xbox 360 so we can play games and chat with each other from a state away... I can only do one... One will make me a Hermit... The other could possibly get me out and about (more social).... Hmmmm... Okay, so I bought the Xbox LOL... I have been having a blast... My nephew and his friends take great pleasure in killing me... Considering I taught him how to play video games, his favorite line now "The student has surpassed the teacher"... I'm loving every minute of it :)
I've been thinking, there are all types of people, some are more social than others... I am social, just in my own way... I don't have many friends, I work a lot, and I love my down time... I like eating alone, and going to the movies by myself... Call it what you will, and maybe I am just fooling myself... But, I think I'm okay :) BTW more than one person (thanks G-Boogie and Lizz) think that Landmark is a cult (allegedly) So I may have come out better with the Xbox360.


What else... I think that is everything, Oh... Swim class is going great... My form is good, and we started breathing, I had to get her to go over breathing again this past Sunday... It's all practice, practice, practice... I feel a lot more comfortable in water than I did, and when I don't worry about form and breathing, I relax and enjoy the freedom... Look out 2012 Olympics... I'm a little late for the 2008, they are holding the trials as I type this... Michael Phelps is in Beijing right now... One day... LOL
I think that is everything...

As always... Be kind to Yourselves... I'm fine, Thanks for asking.

Your friends were right, it is the next best thing to a cult... trust me, I've been there, done the courses, and lived to tell about it. Check out Rick Ross, he has quite the selection of articles on those courses. You're better off with the xbox, trust me.

Glad you're doing well... I had asked Christopher (Clever Fool) to pass along some thoughts from me (as I'm not a regular commenter, so y'all wouldn't know me from Adam).

Have been enjoying your blog though :)

Leave the cults to the crazies.

I'm glad to hear you're still around. Funks can be nasty sometimes. Believe me I've been there! Just don't disappear to far into yourself! Be sure to hop around and say hi to peeps even when ya don't feel like it. And the next thing you know, that funk will be gone :)

Sh@ney said...

About darn time too! hehe
I don't know about this XBox business, although I know they can be alot of fun. I hope your still coming down under mister? Just think we can hang out at the beach together & go 'SWIMMING' hehe
A cult - sounds ominous. I say listen to your friends. I am much like you, prefer to eat alone, enjoy my own company, but I AM anti-social. I try to get myself out & about amongst the crowds, but I still feel isolated. So your not alone! Come hang with me! Good to hear from you! xoxo

Nice blog and good you survived your funk. We all get them. I don't mind be alone either. I'm not a user of people. You can use them just for social crutches and not care anything about them but I'm not that smart apparently. But it does take a village. ;)
Keep bloggin.

I am glad that coming out to your niece went well. X-box over cults would be my choice every time. Where do you think you will go for vacation? Hopefully someplace where you can showoff your new swimming ability. Go someplace where you can snorkel because that is easy for a beginner swimmer. Hey, at one point you promised me a photo of you in a leather harness - where did that go?

Hope you are out of your funk for good now. The future holds good things for us. There are all of those hot men just lining up waiting to meet you!

Glad to read that things are getting better. Aren't nieces and nephews great? I have 6 (three each) and I love them SO much.

My 16yo nephew let me play his Wii when I visited this Spring. It was a blast.

I'm a solitary guy a lot of the time too. Nothing wrong with it at all.

Christopher said...

Glad you're back...missed your musings u sexy beast!

I'm glad to hear to getting out there again. The Xbox thing sounds like fun... I only have an old PS2 with three games.... And I've never done the long-distance/same-game thingy.

Honey ~ you are amazing and social in your own way. Stop letting others get inside your head and tell you what you "need to be".
I love you just the way you are!!!

Soon enough I'll be there to kick your ass if I think you're becoming too much of a hermit!! ;-)
