Preparation G

So my LA preparations have begun. I’ve printed all my itineraries and schedules. I’ve cut my hair and trimmed my beard, and I’ve started the teeth-whitening process.

You can almost taste the stress.

But mostly I find myself in “clothing crisis” mode. I’m completely stymied. What to pack? What to wear?!? Dear god, what about SHOES??? And how will I get all my hair and shaving products through TSA?!?!????

I’ve already basically given up on looking “nice” while out there. I don’t have nice summer clothes. I have work clothes, and work out clothes.

And then cargo shorts and T shirts.

My clothing crisis is twofold: first, I am NOT packing multiple suitcases for a 3 day trip, and second, I still have to bring a tuxedo and possibly something for an after concert “gathering”.

My plan is to take ONE carry on– just a garment bag suitcase. That’s it. And the rest of my wardrobe choices for the weekend must fit in said bag or be worn on the plane.

But what to wear to this “after concert event”? There was no dress code posted. I don’t know if it will skew more toward gala or gay bar?

And while I know it’s always better to over-dress, that just means more clothing to pack. And possibly different shoes.

Fuck.

Being gay really sucks sometimes.

    you can always do some shopping out there and then just mail it home.

    I can’t believe you’re going to miss the summer polar vortex! 70 degrees daytime and 40 night!

    So there’s NO ONE you can ask about the after party? Hell, call up the director of the whatever it is you’re going for, and ask. Be “aw shucks” and cute about it, if that makes you feel better. I really hope you manage to unclench and have a great time! You deserve it! And Silverlake is where you want to go, if you get free time.

    after party? You’ll need a cocktail dress.

    You are really being ridiculous.

    Think about things you’ve worn when people complimented you, or when you saw yourself in the mirror and thought “I don’t look quite so hideous today”, and pack that.

    Tip – wear nice crisp khakis and nice moccasins or loafers on the plane and you can always dress up or down from there with a dress shirt, polo, or sport shirt. This may be my age showing (OK it is), but only tourists did the shorts and t-shirt thing in town – which is OK if that’s the look you want 😉

    Chill. The. Fuck. Out.

    Yes there are those type that will size you up via some matrix of vanity and “hotness” and then there is the rest of humanity. I only met you once before, but I am confident in saying that if you just be yor casual and funny self you will be greatly admired. Sheesh!
    Hit the fault line.

    That is all.

      But Patrick, you saw me at my best because I was instantly and irrevocably smitten.

      For LA I’m gonna have to fake it.

    just go to places where clothing is not an issue. All you need is a towel. Believe me. You’ll do fine.
