Welcome Back to SoBe

Il Villagio. Always wanted to live there!

It’s been a while since I write in my blog! I’ve been busy moving! My new apartment is great. I love it so much. Every day that I’m here I wonder why I moved to Fort Lauderdale. Don’t get me wrong the experience was great, but it showed me just how much I can miss Miami. Everyone who has come over loves this apartment better than my last two.

I’ve been definately enjoying SoBe. All the hot boys everywhere, the beach, and lincoln road. I’ve been soaking it all up. As soon as I settle in and catch up with school I’ll be detailing some of my more interesting sexual experiences in SoBe. It’s always exciting here :)

For now here are some pics that I snapped when Susie and I went to the beach this Sunday. Enjoy!

Vegas Mug Collection [4 Ahead, 3 Down]

Vegas Mugs

My coffee mug collection just grew stronger by four. The picture shows the ones that survived and that I kept. Three broke on the bumpy trip from Las Vegas to Fort Lauderdale. I also gave two away. One of my favorite’s broke which was the one from Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. I’ll have to visit again to get one, I couldn’t find a souveneir section on their website. My absolute favorite has to be a tie between the Paris, Las Vegas and the starbucks one. They are both so cute!

Now for the details of the trip! When we got to Las Vegas we were holding our breath. The oasis that we had imagined Blue Moon to be was a trashy converted Travel Lodge. I was expecting something along the lines of Key West, but oh well! I can’t knock the hotel too much because I did find a hottie to fool around with. I came into the sex/video room one night and we hit it off immediately. We started to blow each other until an older guy came in to ruin the party. I was making my way out and down to the first level when I noticed he got up behind me and started following me. I ran into Rafael and Rob downstairs by the elevator talking to a very drunk guy who wanted to go to our room, I’ll save that one for another story, and I headed outside.

We found our way to the outside shed where we had some anal fun in the outside pool area. He left after that day and I never saw him again. There were two other hotties around the place but other than that it was a dissapointment. Next time I go to Vegas I’ll either be staying at the Rio or the Bellagio. Who knows when that will be!

It was Rafael’s and Rob’s first time in Vegas. So of course they freaked out after the second day because they realized how much money one can spend in Vegas. Rafael was getting over the casinos stating, and I quote, “It’s all the same after a while”. His wicked witch of the East act subsided when he actually won some money at CaveMan Keno. It was a hundred and something bucks but Rafael danced, danced, revolution like it was thousands. After that point he started having fun again!!

We visited all the big hotels, or at least most of them. We didn’t catch any shows because we seriously ran out of money but we had more than our fair share of rides and attractions. My favorite is still New York, New York’s rollercoaster. I take a shit everytime the rollercoaster takes that first drop.

This time around we did the Star Trek experience. We did this for Rafael. Rob and I were laughing the whole time and Rafael was running around getting ASSimiliated. We ate at the restaurant which was overpriced and the food tasted freaking strange, what can you expect for alien food. The whole place had a fishy smell. I don’t know if it was on purpose or by accident. Rob and I tried not to laugh when the workers at the hotel took their characters way too seriously. But the two rides were very fun, and the Borg encounter had it’s scary moments.

We also checked out the gay clubs on Saturday night. Gipsy reminded me a lot of UC in Gainesville. There were all types of guys and the place was a hangout for the younger crowd. We went to the pool bar across the street which I think was their leather bar, we didn’t stay there too long. We also checked out the other place on that strip, can’t remember the name now, but it reminded me of the Copa in Fort Lauderdale. It also had a very mixed crowd. Now I know where the lesbians hang out in Las Vegas. We also went to Hamburger Mary’s there. It was cute. It’s right behind the Hard Rock Cafe where the Gipsy is.

We had a very good time and by the end of the week we were ready to go home. We had walked tons in the blistering heat and our pockets weren’t as heavy. We rented a car with dreams of driving through the desert and checking out the Hoover dam, but that never happened. Now here’s my favorites list of Las Vegas:

  1. Favorite Buffet: Aladdin’s Buffet
  2. Favorite View: Paris’ Eiffel Tower
  3. Favorite Free Show: Bellagio Fountains
  4. Favorite Hotel: The Rio/Venetian
  5. Favorite Place to Gamble: Downtown!!
  6. Favorite Rollercoaster: Taxi New York, New York
  7. Hottest Guys: Bellagio
  8. Favorite Mall: Aladdin’s Desert Passageways
  9. Favorite Game: Slot Machines/Caveman Keno
  10. Classiest Casino: Mandalay Bay

Before I forget I have finsihed creating the Vegas Image Galleries. I created two galleries and you can take a look at them by going to the third image gallery page. Let me know what you guys think of the pictures! I forgot the camera the day we went to the Rio which really sucked because you guys missed Rafael in his Carnivale dress! Oh well. Next time.

Las Vegas 2004

Here is a taste of the trip that Rob, Rafael, and I just took. The Blue Moon Lodge was ghetto as hell, but we still made the best of it. I’ll be creating an image gallery soon with all the pictures, even if they didn’t turn out so well. I’ll have all the trashy details about the hotel and the fun that we had tomorrow. I have to catch up with work and school. In the meantime, here are some of my favorite pics to keep you busy until I create the gallery….

Ping-Pong Match Over: SoBe Winner

Well the indecisiveness is over. South Beach finally won out. The house didn’t work out. Mario didn’t work out. Fort Lauderdale didn’t work out. Rafael and I spent most of the day saturday looking at Deco Dumps. After a very long and not so uplifting day I called my old rental company from a year ago. She showed me one place that looked awful. I was ready to throw it in, but then she showed me this place. It’s on Lennox and 16th, half-block from Lincoln, I’m literally behind the Colony Theatre. It’s great.

The apartment was furnished and didn’t allow pets, but since she liked me as a tenant, she’s moving all the furniture, allowing Lola, she also waived the application and pet fee. I can pay the last deposit in 30-60 days. Here is the best part!!!! I have my own parking space. It’s out of this world!

I can’t wait to move in. July 4th weekend is the day I’m moving all the shit over there. I don’t look forward to the actual move, but can’t wait to go back on the beach! I’ll let you guys know more soon…

Hindi Gods

Sarah Macdonald’s book, Holy Cow sparked my interest with Hinduism and their diverse and colorful gods. I have included my five favorite gods. I got the information and pictures from two very good hindu sites: Hindu.net and Indian Heritage where I got the pictures of the gods. Both are great sites to learn about Hindi culture and religion.

Before I display the god portraits I’d like to share my favorite quote from the book: “I thank Hinduism for showing me that there are millions of paths to the divine.”

Tarpon River: New Beginnings in Fort Lauderdale

It’s official! We put a bid on the house, for rent, don’t think it’s to buy! Hopefully we’ll hear by the end of the week if we have it or not. I couldn’t resist so I’m putting up the pictures that Mario and I took of the house. We snuck in last weekend and took these snapshots of the place. It’s full of charm!

Holy Cow: An Indian Adventure

Seminole Hard Rock Casino

I went twice to the Seminole Hardrock Casino this long weekend. My parents wanted to check it out Friday night. Apparently then loved it because they rang me up on Sunday to go one more time! We had a great time both times. We won a little, lost most of our money, and ate at the food court. For some reason there is nothing more enjoyable then loosing your money at a casino. Anywhere else would be considered a tragedy, but here we are happy to part with the money.

On the second trip my dad said he would help Mario and I get that house we want to rent. I am very excited about the prospect but there is still a lot of shoving to do to get things in order to get the house. So much beauracracy! I had gone Saturday to check out places to rent on Miami Beach. I started out with Renter’s Paradise. They usually show really cute apartments. However this time around all I saw was crap. Expensive crap at that! Some apartments that went for $850.00 a month looked like hole in the walls you would find in a third world country. In SoBe it’s considered a steal.

I did see one apartment that I loved. It even included a parking spot. That is unheard of on the beach. Of course it was $945.00 a month. My excitement quickly subsided when I realized that that’s way too much to pay for one place. Especially if I want to save up enough to buy my own place. My parents agreed…which is why they are all about helping us get this house. I showed them the pictures and drove them by it, they loved it!

Holy Cow: An Indian Adventure I just finished reading the coolest book that I’ve read in a while. It’s funny because I picked it up as a last resort. Roscoe had given me a gift certificate for Barnes and Noble. I was running through the store to waste it. I had already wasted $5.00 on starbucks coffee and spending the rest on coffee was unoriginal, plus I didn’t feel like coffee! I ran through the store for about an hour. I almost bought some buddha head bookends, which were too cool, but much to my chagrin they were out of them, so much for karma!

I decided to get two paperback books instead. I chose The Face from Dean Koontz, who is my favorite suspense writer, and I picked up Holy Cow by Sarah Macdonald. It was under the new and noteworthy authors section. I love anything about India and this book promised to be a good read. It basically follows the author who is stationed in India for a year of her life. The book presents a unique view of India. Usually when you read about India it’s all positive charged with spirituality. This book looks at India through Western eyes.

At first she is disgusted by the dirt, the poverty, and the people. Slowly as she exposes the different practices and religions of India she becomes less jaded, more intuned with India, and at the end of the book feels like she is a true Indian. The book is a great travel essay which portrays many of the different religions which originated or found their home in India. After reading this book, which at times can be hilarious, I feel I know more about Indian culture and I have a better understanding of the different religions of the world.

When I finished the book I felt as though I had traveled India along with the author. Now that I have finished the book I must travel to India! Even though the beginning of the book paints India as a brutal place, I am still intruiged by the culture and the differences between the people of India and Americans. I look forward to future books by Macdonald. I love her style and frankness in her writing. I hope to find a travel mate in the future who will experience India with me. Before that I have to check out Europe. One step at a time right!

Movies and the House Renting Shuffle

Puppy Smile

It’s been very crazy lately. I haven’t written in a while because of it. School is cracking down and will hopefully be over. I’m mentally getting ready for my las vegas trip. I am also trying to find a place to live. Finding a place to live has been crazy. For some godforsaken reason there is an unwritten rule that apartments/houses in south florida are only available the minute you are looking. They will not reserve in advance at all. This makes my situation very stressful because I want to have a place nailed down by the time I go to Las Vegas.

Mario and I made up. We were at odds for a while. I told him that the only reason that I would stay in Fort Lauderdale would be if we got a house. After seeing a couple of properties we stumbled across an amazing house! It is beautiful and really belongs in south beach but it has fort lauderdale prices! We were both very excited about it, but I doubt we will get it. The deposit to get the house is very high and it seems like every possible obstacle has been thrown our way. The realtor we are working with goes very slowly. I’m still going to South Beach tomorrow to check a couple of places out. If I see something amazing I’ll snatch it right away. I have a feeling it won’t though. You have to go through a lot of crap before you can see nice things, especially on the beach.

This past weekend I checked out a couple of movies. I went to go see Troy with Susie, Rafael, and Tommy. The movie was great but more importantly the theatre that we went to was amazing! It was in Boca Raton and we had to make reservations before. The theatre is actually on the balcony level and the seats are loveseats. There is a restaurant and bar which you can go to outside and bring restaurant food inside to the movie. The experience was amazing and I plan to do it again. At least for as long as I’m in Fort Lauderdale. It would be a long commute from South Florida. Shrek 2

Mario and I also watched Shrek 2. It was hilarious. I was kind of expecting the second part not to be as funny as the first. But it was hilarious. My favorite parts was the puss’n’boots look that he gives and the wolf dressed as grandma, especially when he breaks it down through the window when they look after Shrek’s place. Check out the movie for some good laughs.

I have my fingers crossed about the house. I think it would be a very cool experience to live in that house. I snapped some photos of the place but won’t put it up online until I have a better feeling that we will get the place. Why tease? We’ve already gone back and forth a couple of times so I don’t think I can deal with putting up the pics and then not getting the place. I will say it has a fireplace and everything. Tons of charm. We’d be getting a third roommate also which would be an interesting experience. But if that were to work out then Mario and I would pay significantly less rent then we do now. And samui villas will gonna us get more money.

I’ll let you guys know what happens after I look at some places in South Beach tomorrow. We’ll see!

Gangry = Gay + Angry

Gay Pimp

I was reading an article in Instinct Magazine today featuring the Gay Pimp’s new song/video, “Looking Cute, Feeling Cute”. He was being interviewed about his views of what Bush is trying to do by backing an amendment banning gay marriage, and his response was he was gangry! He later explained that gangry was gay + angry. I couldn’t stop laughing. I thought it was brilliant. And boy have I been feeling gangry recently….but that’s left for another post. I don’t want to taint this one.

Seminole Hard Rock CasinoFor my birthday RafLo, Susie, Roscoe and I went to check out the new Seminole Hardrock Casino. We had a great time. The place was gigantic. It actually felt like Las Vegas, except that instead of coins you get tickets. But it was still hands down better than the Miccasouke one in South Miami. RafLo found a twenty-dollar ticket inside a machine which I thought was very lucky. He was all excited but once his money ran out, he was “tired” and ready to go home. As is always with RafLo…what can I say he was born a diva at heart.

After my birthday I’ve been feeling plain blah. No excitement either way. I think it’s mostly due to the situation at home and the state of transition. The upcoming move back to SoBe is all in the future and there isn’t much I can do now. I want school to end too. It’s just dragging….wait that’s me.

Liz PhairI have been keeping busy though. I rekindled my love affair with my playstation 2. I bought some new games but haven’t had a chance to play them because I’m still trying to beat the Hobbit which I’ve been doing for a year it feels like. Stupid fucking game, I’m so close!! I bought the Suffering which looked promising but the controls were horrible, so it sucks. I also got Metal Arms and Lord of the Rings III. Can’t wait to play them all! It keeps me busy you know! If only I can study and play at the same time.

In the music department I’ve totally devoted myself to womyn rock. I burned a cd for Roscoe and it just fueled my thirst for women rockers. I’m totally obssesed with Liz Phair and her new album. I prompted myself to get the album after liking her two new singles way too much. The album is amazing. It was kind of like Madonna’s American Life. I had to listen to it a couple of times and then I couldn’t put it down.

Alanis MorisetteI also ran across Alanis Morissette’s new stuff. I ran across her new video on of all things AOL’s broadband videos. The song is called Everything and it’s great. I love Alanis’ voice but I do admit that some of her songs kind of run the same. From the new album which only has about nine songs, I liked Everything and Knees of my Bees (totally rocking beat). Her new video is too cute and she looks great! I hope this album does better than her last two! I want to sign off my post with my favorite Liz Phair song currently it’s a bit racy but it’s awesome. It’s called H.W.C:


Give it to me, don’t give it away

Don’t think about what the others say

My skins getting clear, my hairs so bright

All you do is fuck me every day and night

You’re my secret beauty routine

Na, na, na, na, what my body has seen

I am lookin’ good and I’m feeling nice

Baby you’re the best magazine advice

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

I’m gonna pull you back down between the sheets

Everything is fresher when the day is sweet

In the morning light when you’re already on the phone

Face it, one of these days

Without you I’m just another Dorian Gray

It’s the fountain of youth

It’s the meaning of life

So hot, so sweet, so WHET my appetite

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Face it, one of these days

Without you I’m just another Dorian Gray

It’s the fountain of youth

It’s the meaning of life

Baby you’re the best magazine advice

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Your hot white cum

Happy Birthday to Me!


Not a Puppy Anymore

I’m sure not a puppy anymore! 27. What a crazy number. Last time I checked I was still 16, what happened? Life sure has a funny way of speeding up just when you’re starting to get the hang of things. I’m a little nervous and a little anxious. I’m getting so close to 30. I know its silly, but I can’t help it. It’s in my nature even though I’ve always believed there is a dignity in growing older. With all that said, I’m sure when I have my mid-life crisis it will be long, hard, and soaking in drama. GUARANTEED!

Every year that I am alive I learn so much, I change into something better. This keeps me going. Friends keep me going. Knowledge, the thrill of life and exploring all there is out there keeps me curious. To a youthful heart! My body might age with time but my heart and mind will always stay young and playful. Now all I have to do is find that anti-aging medication, and fast!

It’s also Lola’s birthday! Roscoe gave her to me on my 23rd birthday. Since she was adopted and I never knew her real birthday she celebrates it with me. I definately have to take her to the park today :)

Monthly Picture

"I have quite a collection of journals. It's not so much that I write a lot. I have this bad habit of starting a new journal when I start a new chapter in life. Either I have had many turning points in my life, or I just wanted an excuse to buy new journals!"
