Two Weeks' Notice


In just under two weeks, we are going to play host to a couple of the world's greatest friends. And we couldn't be happier. These boys have hosted me/us several times and have gone out of their way to make our stays with them picture perfect. They've even washed the sheets on my visits. They have allowed us to invade their home, allowed us to be a part of New Year's 2009, lay naked in front of their fire, swim in their pool, drink Cosmos with them, ride in the car to/from Provincetown for Bear Week, picked us up and delivered us to the Albany airport at the most ungodly hours, and have always done it with a smile. We're more than happy to be able to reciprocate. In fact, I don't know if you'd call this irony or what, but they will arrive here on October 8....exactly, precisely, one year to the date since I arrived for the very first time on their doorstep and said hi to people that I'd only known on the internet up to that point....I think that's weird, quite frankly. Eerie. Meant to be? I think so.

Sean and Jeffrey have developed into the kind of friends that I expect to be around for a while. It's one of those internet relationships gone high on crack. Happy times, good times. And they've introduced us to a whole world of good people who have turned into some of our favorite people. And our week with them this past July at Bear Week in Provincetown was nothing short of a super cool freakishly fantastic time.

We've got such a long list of things for them to see here in Portland that we're not exactly sure where to start. It's also pretty cool because neither of them have ever been to the West Coast.....and it'll be the very first time ever for one of them on an airplane ride! We've got restaurants galore to eat at, gay bars to peruse, and the Columbia River National Scenic Area to check out. We're also going to host a party at our condo for a bunch of our friends so that we can introduce them to our measly little groupies. And, of course, Mason is nothing but on pins and needles with anticipation -- worried sick that he won't compare to the cuteness of Sean and Jeffrey's little Clyde E. Breen. I have a feeling it'll be love at first bite. Oh, and there's just one other little piece of excitement -- if you've followed Sean's blog or Jeffrey's blog for any length of time, you'll know that he/they/WE! spends an exorbitant amount of time at the nearest Target store.....you know, the one with big red balls in front of it.....well, there's great news......we've got a brand new giant Target super store with groceries and all opening very near us exactly on the weekend they are here! We'll definitely have to take in the festivities...and maybe even get a bag of popcorn or a slushy or something.
So, that's it. I could go on and on...and I'm sure we all will while we're jammed into the 850 square feet that we call home. Look out boys, you're in for the ride of your life!

Reading about this is going to be a hoot. And I'm totally with you guys about Target. I go in for one thing and never leave without spending at least $50. It is the only Big Box store that I like.

Jim said...

That sounds like it will be an awesome time!! Have fun....

Rob Inukshuk said...

Ooh, it's going to be fun, fun fun! I look forward to seeing and reading all about it.

Java said...

Sounds like THE BEST fun!

I have a confession to make: we're really only coming because we knew about the Target opening that weekend. If we could have booked rooms there, we'd have stayed there the entire time.

I'm just saying....

annie said...

secondhand thought: how are all those egos - er, i mean guys going to fit in that one little condo?

Will said...

Have an immense lot of fun with the boys--but remember always that they are going to be visiting two of the greatest hosts I know--fortunately from delightful experience!
