Dinner at Perlin

Friday night I met Snooker for dinner at a charming little wine bar named Perlin.

Being American, we arranged to meet extremely early at 6:30. I had picked the time under the vague impression that we could have dinner and that afterwards I would go out dancing and have a late night. Unfortunately our agreed […]

Random Thoughts

It’s time for one of these blog entries filled with random crapola; most of which probably doesn’t interest anybody.

Dressing For Success: Remember that guy I talked about last week: two black hoodies with a black coat? I haven’t seen him since I wrote about it. Karma has bitten me in the ass: I liked […]

Men On Me

It started early last Friday morning—I got out of the shower and decided I wanted to know what the weather was like outside, so I opened my window: It was cool and crisp out; and as I looked directly down, I realized that some men were putting up scaffolding around the exterior of my building—at […]

Dressing for Success

I’m pretty much a slob: anybody who knows me knows that when it comes time for me to dress everyday, I reach into the closet and grab whatever is convenient.

Usually there’s some reflection of the weather outside, but even that cannot be guaranteed. I try to make sure that the colors don’t clash, and […]

Los Tres Gringos Gays

So, I am back from my trip to México, and since I did not explicitly state where I went before (México is a big country), it is time to reveal actual destination.


I went with my two amigos, Jay and Murph—arriving separately in México’s second largest city last Saturday. I was supposed to arrive […]

Geil Berlin Jungen Männer

I haven’t talked about last weekend beyond the Berlin Hustlaball, so here is more.

Berlin is growing on me and Saturday I had a fantastic evening hanging out with the fabulous Snooker. We had sushi at Papa Nô on Oranienstraße. Papa Nô chief geographical feature is that it is a couple doors down from SO36, […]

So… Busted!

Yesterday’s tour of Portugal was not without its amusing aspects. I was taken around by J and M, who have a 2 year old daughter, R. The most amazing aspect of their daughter is that they are raising her to speak Portuguese (her mother’s native tongue), Swiss-German (her father’s native tongue), and English. Apparently the […]

Birthday Girl Koko

So last night was Koko’s big birthday party with lots of friends, pizza, a big group game, and a trip to Uncle E’s.

The highlight of the night was during the reading of Bravo—Germany’s teen magazine full of lots of useful information for teens, including pictures of naked boys and girls. One of the guests […]

Wyoming, Land of Opportunity -ies

Awhile back my sister sent me a notepad that she’d come across.

The notepad promoted the Wyoming Department of Workforce Service (a fancy name for “Labor” I suspect), proclaiming that they “link human and economic development for Wyoming’s future.”

Across the bottom of the pages they had four separate rotating factoids to consider as one […]

Phone, Men, Hot Men, More

I just realized that I made a bigger boo-boo than I thought in The Netherlands.

I had put my mobile phone in my pocket and forgotten to lock it. When I do so, it manages to send the last SMS (text message) to a non-mobile phone—fortunately it sends it to my home phone number in […]
