from thegay :
So - I'm not sure if you still even check this stuff or are connected anyway, but I just, on a whim, decided to log into DLand today. I remembered how you moved to LA all those years ago. Wondering if you are still here. I moved here in January. Still feel like I'm getting settled. Anyway, leave me a note if you are still checking this thingy.
from portia12 :
Where'd you go?
from thegay :
OK. You've been gone for way too long. Hello can you hear me?
from sfmoby :
I'm horribly confused..did you move to LA?
from sfmoby :
does he look as gay in person as he does on tv w/all that hair?
from thisway :
Well Fabio is a celebrity. He did date that chic from The Bachelorette, after all.
from emiloo :
Oh, hey, no. You're a pretty person, too, buddy. And don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Also, way to dodge my email about the Madrigal Reunion.
from derich :
My friend is looking for a Gay doctor in the dallas area. He just moved here from NYC and would feel more comfortable if he can find one. Can anyone help? I saw this on madlife, which directed me here: I’ve got a gay doctor in the Uptown area… kinda cute… or maybe it was just that the whole care-giverness of his doctorly manner is comfy. Either way, he’s pretty cool… most of his patients are gay, staff is mostly gay… Comment by Kevin — August 31, 2005 @ 7:23 pm
from rockymtrangr :
MMMM...Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger in a tent naked. Or anywhere naked. Or just anywhere, as long as they've got a cowboy hat on. I've got the movie poster on my desktop as a little reminder that it will be here...eventually.
from thisway :
Oh God. I'm tearing up and trying to make "muh boy" calm down after that trailer for the movie.
from sfmoby :
Try an ergonomic keyboard. Looks hard to use but really easy w/minimal fuss. Worked wonders for mine!
from showncwby :
Hey guy, Thanks for the link to the Brokeback Mountain trailer. I am very excited to see it now as well.
from portia12 :
heehee, drop it like it's hot (not the kid). You should read "her" diary at fugly.com if you haven't yet. :D
from sfmoby :
OMG! Your BACK! yeeehawwwww!
from rockymtrangr :
I would go for House...I've DVR'd it, and have watched just about the entire first season. As good as any TV drama (other than Six Feet Under) that I've seen in the past few years. But for twisted drama, just go for Six Feet Under (fourth season just came out, so plenty to keep you occupied).
from italktowalls :
Normally I'd second the motion to buy a Buffy season dvd if it weren't for Veronica Mars, a wonderful show that's devastatingly great and would be the offspring of a Buffy/Alias love-child, were such a thing possible. The drama; the funny; the no-holds-barred-yet-exceedingly-cute-protagonist; it's all there.
from thisway :
As for tv on DVD, I suggest all 7 seasons of Buffy and all 5 of Angel. I only have one of the total 12 but that's not the point. They're exxxcellent. =D
from thisway :
If you need an assistant for your new and improved dream-job, just say the word ;-) Serious question, though: is dallas really that bad? I hear that it is but I can't possibly be objective for the obvious reasons.
from rockymtrangr :
Sounds like you'll save enough money being homeless to pay for that hot piece o' wiring. I'm still resisting cameraphones...
from thisway :
Wowwww, it sounds like you and The Seattleite are really hitting it off. I'm always jealous of your date stories.
from thisway :
tehe.
from rockymtrangr :
Saw your journal mentioned in TheGay's, and I'm hooked. Besides, you're trapped in Indiana, where my partner is from. I feel your pain (okay...it's not THAT bad, and I do like Indy). I'll look forward to reading your updates. Nice template, too!
from showncwby :
Hey Guy, I have been patiently waiting for you to come back. I look forward to more of your great writing.
from emiloo :
Damn if I didn't decide to look around diaryland TODAY, and look who's updated! Awesome! Come live in my basement 50% of the time. We have two dryers, an elliptical trainer, and of course, a brand-new dishwasher for you to play with.
from sfmoby :
Texan! Where for art thou? Has thou forsaken blogging all together?
from sfmoby :
it sounds lovely, so how bout some pictures! *G*
from thisway :
THAT IS SO CUTE... Like OmGRoFlMAO!!!!1!1! =D
from thisway :
I'm happy for you. But I have to say that Plano is not conducive to the goodness of... anything at all. ;-)
from portia12 :
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
from thisway :
you two are so cute with your funny handshaking and all. heh.
from sfmoby :
texan come back to us, we miss you!
from sfmoby :
maybe he is still in big HOU?
from thisway :
Where are you, studly?
from sfmoby :
Off to Houston huh? Be sure to hit the BRB while you are in town. It is close to downtown, 2400 Brazos if I remember correctly.
from thisway :
I guess you've never eaten up in the huge revolving dallas dickhead. :-)
from portia12 :
It doesn't sound like he does drugs. You should knock on George's door. But be careful you don't catch him in the middle of something ;)
from sfmoby :
I'm w/thisway. Drugs means he already has a first love in his life. You will always come 2nd.
from thisway :
I say put him on the DO NOT CALL list. White powder, hello! Maybe that's okay in some circles, but in my circles, white powders are only used to scrub sinks and bathtubs.
from thisway :
I wanna go anywhere and hang out with any hot guy.
from portia12 :
aww I'm jealous of your glow worm.
from sfmoby :
I think you've been spim'ed..when you call the number you'll find she is a telemarketer....welcome to blogging
from allinicole :
SHUT UP! it was great to talk to you this morning about the former middle school musical director sighting at Starbucks.
from portia12 :
You made me go to Leann Rimes website and check out her teeth. You are right! They are like buck teeth! She's very pretty and I'd like to see her teeth before. I dislike the idea of veneers a lot.
from sfmoby :
we still love you!
from ohio21boy :
don't tell anyone, but lately I've been watching an hour of Full House daily on abc family. it's so bad, but I secretly love it?
from thisway :
Is THB's name Adam? 'Cause I think I've had the exact same conversation. :-p I don't think you humiliated yourself, especially having confessed it all online. I find that I can't move on from anything without official closure - sometimes even a big red "NO DEAL!" stamp on my forehead, which doesn't happen unless you initiate the conversation.
from thisway :
In case I'm the one who scared you off, I was kidding about knowing who you met ;-)
from thisway :
I think I know who you met.
from emiloo :
Dude, don't give up on Alias. Did you watch it this week? It WAS good. I promise.
from emiloo :
menstrUation.
from sfmoby :
from the gist of your conversations w/him, it sounds like he might be in the same pickle. I say go for it. you never know unless you try and if you don't, you'll end up regretting it later.
from thisway :
I think that "can we talk?" or "I need to talk to you" can be one of the hardest things to say. Sometimes it makes things better, sometimes it doesn't.
from sfmoby :
I'm probably related to him somewhere down the family tree.....sad but true! :-P
from thisway :
I'm going to hurl. I'm the kind of person who would probably walk up to this zitpopper and scold him for his actions. Possibly rub his nose in it and slap him on the back of the head.
from sfmoby :
Congrats on the laptop! I love mine! Best gift I ever gave myself. I take it w/me constantly.
from emiloo :
Turd! Haw. Now that's a funny word. Our super-duper anal retentive, architect friends, Justin and Kirsten, have a house straight of the Restoration Hardware catalog. They have those cutesy letters on their kitchen wall (the white, wooden letters?) that spell out "PIE." A few months ago, Seth and I were plotting to replace their letters with our own, and we tried to decide the funniest thing to put on the wall, and we decided upon "TURD." It just has a good visual impact. The letters even look gross and funny. TURD!
from thisway :
I need my fix, Mr. The Texan. Update already!
from thisway :
o...mg
from dallasmarky :
so you're working with my ex now....cool. :-)
from thisway :
I always buzz my hair B4 the shower ;-)
from sfmoby :
Glad to hear the new place is looking good. I'd hate to see you down again.
from sfmoby :
hey tex: moved my blog to www.mobius.name/blog
from emiloo :
DON'T DELETE THE HASSELHOFF!!!!
from emiloo :
DON'T DELETE THE HASSELHOFF!!!!
from ohio21boy :
I always want to physically be the kind of guy I'm attracted to, too. Although, I think I just want to date myself...
from thisway :
I'd be careful with that "Garden State." I think it seriously has the potential to kill - nay, murder - any budding romance between any two individuals.
from sfmoby :
Im in love. oh wait, or is that lust? Either way, yowser!
from thisway :
I like the chin pubes, nice lips btw. :-p I have a goatee but I keep it really short and fuzzy. I try shaving it once or twice a year, but I don't like not having it. My chin gets cold, and besides, I think I look funny without it.
from allinicole :
Upon close inspection I see the literary classic "The Best Bike Ever" on your desk!!!

from allinicole :
Obviously the starbucks guy did not EVER work at HappiNames located next to the random flavored colored popcorn store!!
from emiloo :
Dot-style letters, LIKE AT HAPPI-NAMES?!!?!?
from emiloo :
Sweetie, I'm going to get you a colander so that your grapes will never roll into the sink again. Magical!
from dallasmarky :
as a dallasite (transplant mind you), i'm personally offended that you don't think you can relieve your stress here. i KNOW you can. you and i have the bar tabs to prove it.
from ohio21boy :
you've got a friend in chicago.
from sfmoby :
SF: check
from hucksterfinn :
new york. check.
from emiloo :
You's a big fine woman when you back that ass up. WhatEVER ass muscles!
from thisway :
i can't stop laughing
from emiloo :
Woo-hoo! Congratulations! I'm so excited for you!
from raben2 :
Congratulations on the new job. Hate to see that you are considering leaving the blog. Instead of posting so regularly (you're quite rare in that regard) maybe you could still post a weekend update once in a while after the new job starts? Hate to see you stop completely. You seem like a great guy, with interesting insights and a clever style. Here's hoping you continue, Tex.
from hucksterfinn :
con-grat-u-lations!
from thisway :
Congrats! And no haulting diaries!
from thisway :
I don't think that's a stupid thing to become attracted to. Sounds to me like certain things just trigger some intuitive feeling. I think it's kinda cool, I'm like that too.
from emiloo :
Come home! Come home! Come home!
from emmarae :
Although I was happy to hear that you and VGL were having a good time together and thinking about dating, I was a little disappointed that you'd have to pretend to be straight around his friends/roommates. That's just weird....it's like me pretending I'm gay or pretending I'm not married. It just ain't me!
from sfmoby :
My hats off to ya Tex. I was a tad disappointed you wanted to play along w/him but lust (or love) can do strange things to folks. Kudos to you for sticking w/your guns and realizing he "ain't the goods" now matter how VGL he is. *bear hug*
from thisway :
Good for you. I was just trying to be supportive yesterday ;-)
from buddhababy :
Dating someone who's not out can be frustrating - but I don't see a problem with hanging out with his str8 friends. If you're not tolerant of thier lifestyles, why should they be of yours? Most of my male friends are str8, because in fact, it's the gay ones who constantly talk about boys and sex, or make asses out of themselves to get laid. I think if you like the guy, take a chance and accept that he doesn't have to be perfect. Sooner or later he will come out and maybe you can help that along.
from hucksterfinn :
not to sound "partisan", but good for you.
from thisway :
Now I am craving meatloaf and fried okra. Never been to Cracker Barrel, though. As for VGL, no shame in dating someone who isn't "out." It's just like any other decision you have to make: you deal with the consequences if there are any. I don't know why some people are so "partisan" about it.
from bethany9 :
Found you via OZ, and I have to say, I totally dig your layout. The writing is not half bad either... ; )
from violetanne :
Just chanced upon your diary and wanted to say hi.
from sfmoby :
amen! you nailed it w/the "taken benches" drives me nuts! course, I'm a tad more insistent.
from thisway :
Amtrak? Hello death. I gave it a 'B', too. That deco in Sloane's office is bloody awful... the retro square wall design thingy... oh it's just sick.
from hucksterfinn :
you can take the train from dallas to austin? was just in austin last month. me likes austin. went cross-country on amtrak when i was in college. 19 days in coach, baby. san diego, los angeles, chicago, washington, boston, new york, montreal and back. had a blast. me likes trains.
from hucksterfinn :
re: your resolutions. how about a passport-required train trip? the fast train from amsterdam to paris is tres recommended. and it HAS a bar car. food for thought, eh?
from thisway :
I always used to shop at that Kroger. I forgot about your (our) love for Alias. I can't wait, it's been so long. And the job "prospect" you've created for yourself sounds super. ;-)
from thisway :
That Albertson's IS bad. There's a Whole Foods down Lemmon near the Tollway, but their food's a little more pricey. Worth it, IMO. Anyway... happy new year! I'm totally with you on #7.
from blonde32810 :
small world. I am from orlando and saw your name on a couple of my regular reads. I am not sure if Texas is better or worse than Orlando..... Stop by and say hi sometime
from thisway :
Hot. Glad you had a good time. :-)
from emiloo :
I hope your day gets better. I tried to get you a Hamburger Helper clock on eBay, but I was outbid at the last second. I don't know if that will make you feel better or worse, but there you go. I will keep looking for Hamburger Helper glove-shaped appliances.
from thisway :
Note to self: avoid the West Village Borders. Sounds like walking beside Crossroads when the patio is full of people; it always feels like the walk of shame. I've never felt as scruitinized and deatomized as when I walked beside the Crossroads patio... where even the ugliest of the ugly can make me feel like a mangy dog. If you ever see some dude walking briskly towards the door in a light sweat, it's either some queen on X, or me. And if he trips and/or runs into the door, it's most definitely me.
from ozwald :
Feh - Why be subtle? It's more fun not to be. : ) PS - GO SEE WICKED!
from thisway :
Lohan's CD sucks, and all I did was preview it on Amazon.
from thisway :
Thanks for the linkage ;-) I'm sure you're gonna be fine. Dallas is a great place to be for someone in your industry. Also, I think your maggot analogy is perfect. I never went to a prom.
from thisway :
Meh. Stupid grassy knoll :-) It's so anti-climactic.
from emiloo :
Wah, I want to come to Dallas. Hopefully after Christmas sometime. Pee Ess: I just hung out with the Madrigals and Ms. Wonders. RU Jelus?
from thisway :
I'm jonesing for an mp3 player as well. I've settled on the Rio Chiba. I know they're often very fragile, but a friend says his chiba is super durable and I trust him ;-) It def. has to have expandable memory, and that one seems like one of the best options.
from emiloo :
Aw, I used to have a thing for Mark Valley when he was the New Jack (before the Old Jack came back)on Days of Our Lives. Sigh. Also, I had a crush on He-Man. I also had a haircut similar to He-Man's when I was a junior in high school, remember?
from thisway :
Mark Valley could incite spontaneous orgasms with nothing more than a quick gesture. I think I love him.
from ozwald :
Fine taste in men you have there (and I speak only of the three dimensional). Mike went to high school in my hometown from what I understand. He was close friends with one of my high school teachers.
from emmarae :
Probably the funniest entry EVER, including the Kevski diary.....
from ozwald :
Aw. Good for you kid!
from thisway :
yay. :-D I've never heard of half of these bars you speak of, but I'm glad you're feeling better.
from emiloo :
P.S. I read where I said that the dishwasher was in the box. Now the secret is out: I am a crazy LIAR.
from emiloo :
Oh, see, the dishwasher is not still in the BOX. I took it out of the box, so that I could open and close it and pretend I could actually use it. For a while it sat in my living room. Then, we were having people over, and so as not to appear insane white trash, we put it in the basement. There it sits. To install a dishwasher (where there was previously nothing) requires an electrician, a plumber AND a carpenter. I have, like, 23 dollars. The dishwasher will remain in the basement, at least until after Christmas.
from thisway :
I have a problem with perception, too. You're right about Dallas. I USED TO have this friend who was so obsessed with having a nice place that half of his income went straight to the rent. I guess in Dallas' defense, he wasn't a native.
from thisway :
TWIGS of fiber? My colon is shocked and offended.
from emiloo :
Aw, I like Kashi. Their Cinna-Raisin crunch is my favorite, and I also like Go Lean Crunch! (Their exclaimation point, not mine. Crunch!)
from thisway :
Hugs* :(
from thisway :
I think it does take time. I know a lot of people who aren't willing to give it time. The end up moving a <em>lot</em>, never satisfied with the greenness of the grass, you know? But anyway, yes, unclehood is the best. If I ever moved away, leaving my niece and nephew would be the hardest thing.
from ozwald :
Hey kid. Yes - time is really the only answer for anything. I keep trying to be optimistic - but it keeps getting harder and harder. I've locked myself up - I'd be happy to give you the password. Email me or IM me. [email protected]
from emmarae :
Aw puddin...It's hard to do the delete (remember my favorite JewRunningMan?), but it's the right thing to do. You know you would've baloney-sandiwched him anyway. Hee Love you!!
from ozwald :
Aw kid. Believe me. I'm not handling this well. At. All. I just believe that everything happens for a reason. People come in and out of our lives ... I'm sure there is a lesson in this. Right now - I just wanna ... nevermind. AIM=oboycrazyman - send me a shout out if ya wanna.
from thisway :
Sadly, I think you'll only find your conceptions of M/M dating exacerbated in Dallas. But if you can deal with that, then you'll be fine ;-) Your "heartbreaker" sounds a lot like my last one.
from emmarae :
Who in the hell brings applesauce to an "event," with or without marshmallows? Shoot her, please.
from emiloo :
Applesauce with marshmallows? What in the hell is that? That's so wrong I don't even know where to begin. (Um, did you eat it?)
from ozwald :
I know moving is a hassle and all - but I hear Chicago is a nice place to live. I'm just sayin' ...
from emiloo :
Weird. So he has some sort of hands-free aim? He was totally showing off.
from ozwald :
Aw Kevski - **Hugs** Sounds like we both need one today.
from emmarae :
Boo on Christmas Alone. Prudence will be Home Alone - you can have ho ho with her. She'll make biscuits and everything!
from emmarae :
I'm so glad you're back, Freckle-Eye! You forgot to mention the mammogram in the breast cancer scare, BTW.
from ozwald :
Hey kid! I'm so glad you are back. Thanks for letting me know. Break a leg with the move. I can't wait to read about your adventures in your new town. oz
from emiloo :
Woo-hoo, you're back!
