Sleep

I fell asleep earlier than usual last night, then I woke up and it was my usual bedtime so I rolled back over and went back to sleep. So I forgot to do a post for today.


Hmmm

Not much to say today. I’m going to get my tires changed for winter. I hate changing out my tires, but it has to be done. Also, it’s one week before I fly to Chicago. I hope all goes well then.


Goodbye, Jim

Jim Nabors, the comic actor best known for his years playing Gomer Pyle, one of TV’s most lovable goofs, has died at the age of 87. Nabors’ husband, Stan Cadwallader, confirmed to The Associated Press that the actor and singer died at home in Honolulu.

“Everybody knows he was a wonderful man. And that’s all we can say about him,” Cadwallader told the news service. “He’s going to be dearly missed.”


40

That’s how old I am today. 40. The big 4-0. Happy birthday to me. Today will be just another day at work. After work, we are all going to Montpelier to have drinks and dinner. That’s how I will be celebrating my birthday. The real celebration though comes tomorrow. A coworker and I are going to Montreal. She had a terrible 40th birthday so we are going to make up for it and have a grand old time in Montreal. We have a hotel in the Gay Village. We may go see some museums first, then we will party in the Gay Village that night. I’m not sure what we will do Saturday but I expect to be a little hungover. I can drink how ever much I want, and I don’t have to worry about driving, just being able to walk back to the hotel. I’m not a big drinker, so I won’t actually drink that much. Anyway, it should be a gay old time.


Black Friday

I have to be at the doctor’s office at 8:30 this morning. He’s going to tell me two things: I need to lose weight and I need a sleep study. I want to lose weight, that’s a no brainer, but I dread doing a sleep study. I’m pretty sure I have sleep apnea, but I don’t want to have to wear a mask to sleep in. Anyway, that’s going to be the first part of my morning.

After the doctor’s appointment, I plan to go do a little bit of shopping. I need a new dress overcoat that will look good with my new suit. I plan to go to just two stores, which I hope will not be overcrowded, and if I can’t find what I want, I have one picked out online to order.

If it’s late enough after that is done, then I plan to go get some sushi for lunch. I try to eat sushi at least once a month. I believe I’m due. I may also go get a haircut, but I haven’t made up my mind on that just yet.


Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day is usually filled with family and food.  There are many LGBT out there who are without their families because of the hate and bigotry that exists in this world.  I hope those who cannot be with their families, for whatever reasons, have wonderful friends with whom to share this day of Thanksgiving, and I hope they feel the love that I send their way.

I wanted this post to be about all that I am thankful for this year.  With my birthday, (it’s next week), I will begin a new year of my life with hope and promise for a wonderful future.  I am so thankful for my family.  They may drive me crazy at times, but I love them and they love me.  I am thankful for the love and companionship provided by my dear cat Isabella, who will never replace HRH, but she is a wonderful and joyous companion.  I am thankful for the wonderful people with whom I have the pleasure to work. I am thankful for the opportunities that Chicago may have in store for me. I am thankful to be alive and in a happy point in my life.  Most of all, I am thankful for the many friends in my life.  Some of them are people I’ve never met in person, but have formed a connection with through my blog.  For them, I want to say, you are as important to me and as loved by me as if you were a friend I saw everyday.  I love you all!  Thank you for being my friends.

I am spending the day with just me and Isabella. I had the opportunity to go to a coworker’s house, but decided to spend this Thanksgiving alone. I have my turkey, gravy, and mashed potatoes. I even have some veggies to cook. I look forward to a day of reflection and meditation on what I am thankful for this year.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!


TGIF

It’s Friday again. We have to get through this day for the weekend. I’m looking forward to Saturday; there are some good football games on that I want to see.

By the way, has anyone been watching The Orville? I’ve found the show to be quite enjoyable. It’s funny and can be a bit silly on occasion but it doesn’t over do it. They’ve also dealt with some interesting subjects from social media to same sex marriage. While it can be serious, it’s also often funny. It’s a good mix like the old Star Trek movies used to be. I’m glad The Orville has been picked up for a second season.


Halloween Is Coming 


Halloween is tomorrow. Gay Christmas. It’s my favorite holiday. It’s the one time when you can be someone else. Anyone else. It’s fun. My best friend has a Halloween party every year. When we lived closer to each other, I always attended. Many years, I cohosted. Sadly, she lives in Texas now and I live in Vermont, so it’s kind of hard to make it to the party. We are dressing up at work this year though. That should be fun. I really do love Halloween.


Sleeping In

I’m sleeping in and staying in bed today. I have today off because I’m working Saturday this week. I don’t have much else to say. It’s been an interesting week, but also an exhausting week. So I’m sleeping in.


Guilty Pleasure

I have to admit something. I have a new guilty pleasure. I’m really loving the new remake of Dynasty on The CW. It’s just a fun catty show to watch. I never watched the original Dynasty, but I like the new one.

The reboot updates several factors from the 1980s original, including moving the setting from Denver, Colorado to Atlanta, Georgia; making Steven’s homosexuality a nonissue to Blake; and changing gold digger Sammy Jo from a woman to a gay man. Patrick said, “We knew in our version—2017—we wanted Steven’s conflict with Blake to be not about him being gay, but about him being liberal.” Additionally, in the new series, Blake’s fiancée is Hispanic, and both chauffeur Michael Culhane and the Colby family are African-American.
