Big party week ahead. Vegan picnic last night, Canada Day celebration (in #Houston) tonight, pool party on the 3rd, cookout on the 4th. I gotta Stay Hydrated.
After all that, I'll take a weekend road trip with C. 💕
I'm going to be an exhausted man. I'm tired just contemplating all of it.
I wish I could order a quick-turnaround shirt for the #Houston pride parade.
It seems like there are only so many non-monogamous, leftist cuties in #Houston, and I probably met them all at some point. Sixteen years in the same city will do that to a person, I suppose.
I hate Sammy Guevara as a character. Even as a #Houston boy.
He's a pretty kind dude, but I drag him like fuck when he's in the ring.
Waiting for a bus to take me to the bus to take me back to #Houston. It was a good weekend. I wish I could stay.
Okay. Stage 1 complete.
Stage 2: Drop fur off with friend.
Turns out I'll have to pick the girl up from swim practice this evening, too, so we can all go to an author signing at a "local" bookstore. (It's about an hour away, because that's how #Houston and its god-forsaken suburbs are.) I really hope I can keep my energy levels up today.
#Houston knows 'bout Connie's—I made myself some Connie's-alike tonight. Fried catfish & fried rice, baby.
Going out was not fun. My throat kept producing just enough mucus to be uncomfortable without being enough to really expectorate. My lungs hurt for a bit. #Houston
selfie, sunglasses contact?
Had to leave the house for the first time in a few days. The air feels bad. #Houston
Well, hot damn. Ran into an out-of-town friend at karaoke, shared some fun stories, might do a podcast with his wife about costuming.
This is #Houston in a nutshell, and this is why I never want to leave. We have community, even after folks move on to other things. We share ideas and opportunities.
I had a passenger tonight who happens to visit a lot of the places I frequent, knows several of the people I know. I invited her to the first part of my birthday celebrations. She actually put it in her Google Calendar.
#Houston is such a tiny town for being the fourth-largest US city (by population.)
#Houston is a vacuum, sucking in people from everywhere. For example, one of my friends (hey, @shadowsenator) knows the daughter of my mom's lifelong friend. Mom and my "Aunt" Judy met in Atlanta; they both consider it their hometown. Aunt Judy's daughter, whom I have vague childhood recollections of, probably lives 30 minutes from me.
I think Beeper and I will volunteer at the #Houston Food Bank again in March. They do great work, and I'm always happy to be part of it.
So, karaoke got CROWDED.
#Houston is having some of its first really warm weather of the year, and it didn't rain tonight. People were out downtown, and they stopped by.
I was all but propositioned by an inebriated women. Sweet and affirming, and nah.
The songs were good. The reactions to the songs were good. The night was good.
(Every year, #Houston has an all-Santa re-enactment of the Battle of Pearl Harbor. FYI.)
My family and I got to see Rob Paulsen, Maurice LaMarche, and Tress MacNeille perform songs from Animaniacs! live on stage with their original composer, Randy Rogel, on piano. We braved the cold, took blankets and warm beverages, and had a wonderful time. Here's to #Houston and to Miller Outdoor Theater for bringing us amazing FREE entertainment!
