Morning Edition - 1/6/05

As promised, this Monday, January 9 marks my first day back to the gym. Although my goal is overall health, my priority is achieving weight-loss and tone when I'm obviously older and less motivated. The objective is to lose 20 pounds before summer and regain some energy. It seems the last six months have been riddled with excuses for eating, laying back and letting it all hang out. It turns out everything is now literally, hanging out - and over - for that matter. So it's back to the elliptical machine, power crunches and body toning. Freakin' Rican has agreed to team-up with me for the challenge and I have to admit, I'm glad I have some back-up. I'll keep everyone posted on the progress and we'll begin a weekly posting for everyone on some kind of health regimen to post his or her progress as well. Good luck everyone and here's to lookin' HOT in summer '06.

Just Looking Out
I know some things are just hard to consider. With the spread of sexual diseases - HIV specifically - it's important that we take care of ourselves. We all make mistakes - or even dumb choices - like having sex without protection. Now it's time to KNOW the truth. New York City offers free and anonymous HIV testing through GMHC. For an appointment call 212-367-1100. In Washington, DC contact the Washington Free Clinic at 202-667-1106. Knowing your status helps you begin early treatment and live a virtually normal life. Whether you're gay, straight, bisexual, on the up-and-up or down-low, you still need to look out.

Long Story Short
Annette celebrates her 39th birthday today. Happy birthday Freakin'! Michelline T. aka Fake-Lo celebrates her birthday on Saturday. The ever-beautiful F-Lo is shoving… I mean, pushing her forties. Don't worry crumbcake, you don't look a day over… uh, twenty eight?! John B., my ex- and ex-communicated boyfriend (just kidding juice head) celebrates his 43rd birthday on Sunday. Brokeback Mountain Brunch on Sunday. That's right, I'll be heading out to finally catch this acclaimed flick this Sunday afternoon. Hit me up if you'd like to join me. I'm still juggling the idea of Puerto Rico in February - although many of us feel the ski weekend may be too close behind. Let's chat-this-up and see what we can do. I really want to lay out in the sun! Yesterday's blog question generated a healthy, constructive and honest discussion about child rearing and race relations. Turns out many of us have valid reasons for our fears and prejudices and hopefully can open up our minds to listen to different perspectives. Special thank you to Anonymous for kicking things off. Love the candor…The birthday celebration for Annette scheduled for this evening has been rescheduled for next Friday, January 13. The festivities will combine resident blogger Annette and Michelline's celebration. Carmen C. will send out invitations today and I will post her invite in today's Afternoon Edition.

On Blast
Hypothetical: You wake up tomorrow and discover you are of the opposite sex. What would be the first thing you'd like to experience as the "other" sex? Who would you like to speak to first in your new gender "digs"?

Keep passin' the open windows…

Good Morning Fam,

Since most of us are on a health tip here is some info. The Discovery Health channel is sponsoring a National Body Challenge. You will be able to track your weight, get health tips, exercise tips and loads of recipes. I don't know if it is in the New York area but bally's is a sponsor and will be offering 8 weeks free to the gym. You can participate as a group or just own your on. Go to this link for more information. Oh yeah and it is also in New York.

In my younger years the first thing I wanted to experience if I woke up a male, yes I've thought about this, was not to have my monthly visitor. Since then I have matured and my girl takes a break whenever it wants and I appreciate that. Also with maturity, my knees are tired of supporting me while hoovering over the toilet when I go to the bathroom, so I would like to be able to urinate standing up.

I regret to inform all of you that my main man Lou Rawls passed away this morning...

You'll never find, as long as you live
Someone who loves you tender like I do
You'll never find, no matter where you search
Someone who cares about you the way I do

Whoa, I'm not braggin' on myself, baby
But I'm the one who loves you
And there's no one else! No-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh one else

You'll never find, it'll take the end of all time
Someone to understand you like I do
You'll never find the rhythm, the rhyme
All the magic we shared, just us two

Whoa, I'm not tryin' to make you stay, baby
But I know some how, some day, some way
You are (you're gonna miss my lovin')
You're gonna miss my lovin' (you're gonna miss my lovin')
You're gonna miss my lovin' (you're gonna miss my lovin')
You're gonna miss, you're gonna miss my lo-o-ove

Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh (you're gonna miss my lovin')
Late in the midnight hour, baby (you're gonna miss my lovin')
When it's cold outside (you're gonna miss my lovin')
You're gonna miss, you're gonna miss my lo-o-ove

You'll never find another love like mine
Someone who needs you like I do
You'll never see what you've found in me
You'll keep searching and searching your whole life through

Whoa, I don't wish you no bad luck, baby
But there's no ifs and buts or maybes

(You're gonna) You're gonna miss (miss my lovin')
You're gonna miss my lovin' (you're gonna miss my lovin')
I know you're gonna my lovin' (you're gonna miss my lovin')
You're gonna miss, you're gonna miss my lo-o-ove

Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh (you're gonna miss my lovin')
Late in the midnight hour, baby (you're gonna miss my lovin')
When it gets real cold outside (you're gonna miss my lovin')
I know, I know that you are gonna miss my lo-o-ove

Let me tell you that you're gonna miss my lovin'
Yes you will, baby (you're gonna miss my lovin')
When I'm long gone
I know, I know, I know that you are gonna miss

Excessive jelly bean flicking leads to blindness and hairy finger tips.

I would kill myself if I was a man.

First, assuming I'd be born again with the knock-out female body that I predict I would have... I would wear a classy, yet revealing open back gown with stilettos to the nearest sports bar. I'd flirt all night long and eventually suggest an orgy of sorts back at my place. Then I'd get up the next morning - back as a man and say... "I hate when this happens!"

Toy said...

Me...a man?!!! Pleeaassee! Honey, you can't take away hips like these!!!! With this body I would however be one of the most fierce Queens you've ever seen.

Sidebar: I'm turning 26 on Tuesday and think that I'm just now realizing that I'm no longer a tenderoni but just a roni.
