Evening Edition - 8/2/07

I’m Coming!
That title is so loaded (pun intended) but that’s how I feel today – I’m coming! I’m coming up on 38 wonderful years – and proud of it; I’m coming out of a dating slump that lasted much longer than it should’ve; I’m coming to the realization that I have an amazing group of friends who support me; I’m coming into myself and a complete comfort with who I am. Sunday’s the big day. I fly out of JFK tomorrow morning with my life-long friend Cas, my other friend Mercy will be joining me on Saturday and we’ll be celebrating Great-At-38 in Puerto Rico! I’m going home to pack, shave and decompress before my departure. This will be Cas’ first trip on a plane and we’ve already had a few discussions about breathing techniques. I’m taking the camera, several bathing suits and just a few basic outfits – it’s really not about the gear this trip. I want to lie on the beach, party and just be thankful.

Stroke Me or Else
I’m a true Leo. I am dramatic, passionate, possessive, yet a true kitty at heart. Stroke my ego good and you can get virtually anything. Don’t get it twisted though; I’m more than ready to do the same for those I care about. I believe in telling you that you look great, how good you make me feel and how much you mean to me. So it should come as no surprise that BD is basking in the glow that is the Leo affection. Playful, sensual and intense, Leo’s can make their partners feel like the Best Supporting Actor in a major production. The key is to remember that the role is – as mentioned – supporting. For Best Actor we need to look no further than the Leo. Recently, BD has been a little down about a few personal issues and he’s not stroking back the way he should. It’s at these times that my resolve waivers and I find myself weak to those encounters that peak my interest and stroke my ever-thirsty ego. Just yesterday, while in the locker room after a rough work-out I was approached by a Puerto Rican dude with a third-leg. LOL. Long Story L-O-N-G….I accepted the number, but don’t intend to follow-up…fo’ real! Anyway, I’m thinking my birthday Caribbean trip will give us that absence-makes-the-heart-grow-fonder feeling.

Weight Whoa
I had to laugh hard today. My parent’s NYC visit (they left this week) has left me 8 pounds heavier. I tried on my bathing suits and they all fit different – hey, when you’re only 5’7” tall, 8 pounds show – fast! The funny thing about this whole weight fiasco is that I was at my desired size (not necessarily weight) a month ago. As luck would have it, I will be snapping pics of the new fuller me while on vacation. Hey, I’m cool with it. When I return we’ll get back on point and work on those trouble spots.

On Blast
I don’t necessarily believe in astrology, but I pulled-up the compatibility profile for BD and me. Turns out Taurus and Leo can be quite a disaster! Screw those astrology predictions!
What is the most surprising thing you’ve read/heard about your astrological sign and would you agree that it is true about you?

Keep passin’ the open windows…

i hate to be the bearer of bad news...but as a taurean man who has dated more than a fair share of leo men the results definitely can be disastorous. the instant attraction is strongly felt and the sex can be intense. both signs can be very loving when content and extremely acid tongued when provoked or angered. insults can be straight for the jugular and do permanent damage to the egos. this will not be a smooth trouble or work free relationship but if truly desired it can be immensely comforting.

you know good and damn well you shouldn't have taken that number! and you just said ya'll were okay. don't be inviting trouble trying to be dramatic.

i don't read horoscopes, because they always seems so generic. "you need to save money for an important thing." WTF?!!
