Yay! Boo!

*The idea for this post was inspired by vuboq. Thanks vuboq!

Yay! I was excited about the new Hershey’s Air Delight chocolate bar – I thought it
would be like the Choco’Lite bars of yore. Chocolatey, yet airy.

Boo! But it wasn’t. It just tasted like chocolate chalk.

Yay! And then I received my ugly purse prize in the mail and all was right
with the world (not shown – the 3 candy bars Harry and I immediately ate).

Yay! House is on tonight!

Boo! This is the last season of House.

Boo! I’m out of my favorite lipstick (Maybelline Moisture Whip* #370 – Toast) and they’ve discontinued it!

Yay! I found one that looks fairly similar (Maybelline Colorsensational #275 – Crazy for Coffee).

*Know who else uses Moisture Whip – that’s right, Wonder Woman!

Yay! I get to use more colors in my painting class

Boo! I still have to paint those ugly bottles (the yellow square is the area I’m painting).

Yay! BC&RL3 starts up this week.

Boo! I’ll have to trade in yummy potato chips for yucky rice cakes.

Yay! I will be able to fit into my jeans again.

Boo! I’ll have to trade in sitting on the couch for exercising.

Yay! I’ll feel and look better!

Boo! I’ll have to keep eating right and exercising for the rest of my days.

Yay! I have 3 more days to stuff myself with junk food!

I guess you can’t have the silver linings without the clouds.
What were the ups and downs of your week? Let me know in comments!

Cooper’s First Halloween

The world’s cutest parakeet had an awesome Halloween. After he carved his pumpkin he tried on some costumes.


He wanted to be a slutty green parakeet, but I had to put my foot down.


He went as a ghost instead.


He made quite a haul.


Someone was giving out raisins. He was not too pleased about that.


Then it was time for popcorn, hot apple cider and scary movies!


And of course, handing out candy to the trick-or-treaters.

9 Years!

I love October for two reasons. One – Halloween! And two, it’s the month that I finally got Harry to marry me. On the 14th, we made it to nine years (9 married, 14 total) without killing each other. Yay!

People never often ask us, “How have you two managed to stay together so long?” The answer? No one else would have us. We do stuff. Here is just some of the stuff we’ve done over the years.

Hiking.

Skiing.

Having friends for dinner.

Hanging out with Cooper.

Watching TV.

Being tourists.

Gliding.

Tubing.

Diving.

Celebrating the holidays.

And, of course, dressing up for Halloween.

But mostly we just watch tv.

Mostly.

NYC Pride Parade Photorgasm!

Like every other gay person on the planet (or so it seemed — ugh! crowds!), I attended the NYC Pride Parade on Sunday.  And guess what?  I brought my camera!  Here’s a whole bunch of photos…

(gay stormtrooper)

Old gay people on motorcycles!

Michael Bloomberg, Andrew Cuomo, and Sandra Lee.

(In case you’ve forgotten … that Sandra Lee.)

Dan Savage & Terry Miller

Dan Savage

He thinks that he’s bringing back “raise the roof!”  What do you think?

Rickie Vasquez Wilson Cruz travels in a horse-drawn carriage!

A gay pride … of lions.  Get it?

Yuck!

NY Senator Chuck Schumer

Meh, Obama.

Yuck!  Topless girls!

Argyle!

And finally … it’s Zac Young from Top Chef: Just Desserts!

Too bad that I didn’t get a photo of the front of his head.

There’s one more photo that you’re going to love … but you can’t see it until Saturday.

Happy Pride Everybody!
