Pride time is nigh, and I am still a Fatty McFatterton.
Oh well– not much I can do about it now, unless Christina really is a Genie in a Bottle and I can get 3 wishes. “Please X-tina, make me 190 lbs and ripped!”
But alas… I think not. Now no muscle daddies are gonna want me. (sniff, sniff)
I will be incommunicado for a good 4 days, starting tomorrow. Hotlanta is going to live up to its name by being hot, sticky and humid. And that’s just in the bars (ba-DUM-bum). Rumor has it that in excess of 300,000 gays will be participating in the Atlanta Pride weekend. That’s a LOT of faggotry all in one location and I’m not exactly sure how I feel about that. It sort of exceeds my desire for a small to medium sized cocktail party…
My fear is that the bars will be full to the brim- there will be lines for everything (if we can even get in)- the park will be a madhouse- and parking will be worse. Dinner at any gay establishment or gay-favored restaurant will be strictly impossible. And it will most likely rain on the Parade as it has the past two years.
I hope it won’t be so crowded that it will be impossible to have fun. I still plan on listening to plenty of Kelly Clarkson and Beyonce Remixes and sweating off some of my remaining poundage on a dancefloor or two.
I’m desperately trying to adjust my attitude prior to the drive tomorrow.
I think I’m being a bit of a negative-nancy because I have a lot weighing on my mind right now (house projects, job interview stuff, work projects, etc).
About the interview:
Some positive feedback was received today. The three people that interviewed me apparently liked me well enough. Now the VP of Operations / Chief Metallurgist wants to interview me via phone (he wasn’t there the day I went up). Evidently this guy is guarding his territory fairly jealously, and has axed all of the other candidates for one reason or another. I may be doing this phone interview today.
Still not certain how I feel about the opportunity. It definitely isn’t what I envisioned doing for my next job, but the location is where I envisioned doing it. Since I hate what I do for a living, I suppose location wins out, eh?
Peace out, and I’m sure I’ll have stories to tell on Tuesday.
enjoy atlanta, cb!
ps – if you’re making a move for a job, there has to be more in the (+) than the (-)..whatever that means. i just went through that and it’s not an easy process. your gut will let you know.
be safe and have fun.
“…I am still a Fatty McFatterton.”
Oh shush. Yer pic looks pretty damn hot to me. I have spoken, thus it is true.
Last year’s Hotlanta parade was scary with the thunder and lightning. I hope this year’s weather cooperates and you have a GREAT time. Take lots of pics.
Good luck on the interview, too. 🙂
Relax and breathe man. Pride celebrations are what they are and nothing more.
And remember, if you have to stand in line, there’s always someone within groping distance.
Hi. I’m here in Atlanta. Maybe I’ll see you around this weekend.
You’ll probably find parking just fine, but if you and/or your friends get frustrated trying to find a place in all the sidestreets, you can park at 4th & Myrtle. It’s about 6 blocks from Piedmont Park. There’s a lot behind my apartment (two yellow buildings that sit side by side on Myrtle) that my friends always use when heading to the park.
The bars shouldn’t be too bad. I imagine Blake’s will be horrendous, but a short wait in line should be all you’ll have to endure. There will be so many people coming in and out of that bar, the line should move fairly quickly. They usually have a beer cart set up in line, so that and the eye candy should keep you happy until then.
Hey there… have fun in ATL… Jeff and I are heading out west to San Fran Pride…but I will be in ATL Monday through Thursday for business… going from 60 degrees to 90 degrees and humid is going to suck… but hope you have fun sweating it off on the dance floor…
Have fun dancin’. I am in the you look pretty tasty as is crowd, so have fun with the boys. As for the job. You’ll know if it’s right for you. Looking forward to hearing about your adventures in Prideland.
You worry too much Blanche about your weight. You look good.
Have a great time in Atlantis!
Have a great time and may you meet a hot hot daddy to pleasure your day.
Kev in NZ
Have a good time in Hotlanta. 🙂
I hope the phone interview goes well. Fingers crossed.
What more can I add? Wear a condom.
enjoy it, got lots of friends going up there this weekend for that, my ex lives there, and most of my best friends from college, all the guys I came out with, they all moved there, and I came to Florida, I sometimes wonder what my life would be like if I had gone with all my friends there.
