Vroom Vroom

Vroom vroom. Here we go. Leaving April in the dust and headed full force right into the month of May. It's one of my most (the?) favorite times of the year -- Portland is filled with color from azaleas and rhododendrons.

I spent last weekend with my friend Stephan from Poughkeepsie, New York. He was in town for an international culinary conference. The boy dragged my arse from top to bottom and side to side around my very own city. He took me place after place including places I'd never even been. Bar after bar, stripper after stripper, restaurant after hardware warehouse and to every bakery the city operates. We left no stone unturned. I'm sure he was as tired as I was when he returned home. To say the least, I enjoyed my time with him. And that led into......a few days of work ..... followed by ...

A quick 24-hour trip to Palm Springs to see our buddies Don and George. They were in PSP for an extended vacation. My hubby was supposed to be the one that went to get a little R&R with them after his mother (continues to...) threw his life into an uproar over the last month. He thought that it just wasn't the right time for him and that he was going to have a hard time relaxing knowing that Mommy Dearest was just a phone call away. So, I went. Don and George always take such great care of me....and this was no exception. I think my favorite part was just relaxing, sans clothing, around the pool. The sun warming the bits. And I don't think that the underwear contest at Hunter's hurt either. So, I found my way back home last night -- to unpack and repack for....... Oh, wait, one more thing....I heard this dance remix of You Raise Me Up while I was in PSP and thought it was hot!......And now back to our regularly scheduled programming......

Six long days of work. I'll be in Austin tonight. San Jose on Saturday night. Austin again on Sunday night. Home in Portland on Monday night. Chicago on Tuesday night. And back home on Wednesday night. If I didn't enjoy my job so much, I may be tempted to complain and bitch and moan. Plus, working with two of my most favorite flight attendants makes it that much better.

The rest of May isn't any less busy. We have Mother's Day, Portland's Doggie Dash, and fitting for our new flight attendant uniforms to debut next year. In other news, I'm anxious to get this year's quite lackluster American Idol out of the way. I swear, it's been crap. And I was quite surprised by the winner of RuPaul's Drag Race. That is all for now. My mind's a blank.......

love, love, love that dance remix of You Raise Me Up! It is one of my favorite songs (Groban version), but this is really cool.

Have a happy May! I will certainly go to a hardware store or two this month. I'll think of you.

You are a busy boy. Austin? You're just a few miles from me and the oil slick. You could kill two birds.
Fly right!

I love Josh Groban's music! I wish he'd done the dance mix. It would have been Fabulous!
