BACONFEST


tumblr_ljmm07X0IC1qik35so1_500

This past year Scott, Jennifer, Conor and I all attended a little event in Juneau titled BACONFEST. We had heard about it and we thought hmmmm festival of Bacon + Bacon = we need to go to that
Dancing_b2cfda_1701446

because anytime there is bacon being severed I want to be there

So a whole bunch of restaurants in the community will be cooking and we then get to taste it and vote on our favorite…..

Once we got in there they had snack, appetizers, mini deserts, drinks even bacon ice cream …it was like stepping into heaven. So we commandeer a small table and take turns grabbing samples and returning to the table to consume this bacon flavored treat with gusto

If I could have had one of these I would have

It was all I could do to come for air I was like a prize winning eater just shoveling food into my mouth. At some point during the evening they announced that there would be a a bacon eating contest , they had a group of women form the community who were voulunteering for this contest. Each contestant had ten pounds of bacon and they would race to see who could eat the most in a certain amount of time. Now I expected the women to look like this

But they were normal and when the contest began most of them ate like it my poison or something to fear. They were not doing a very good job of consuming as much pork as possible.

There was one bitch ….. I think she must have half unhinged her jaw because she just started shoveling … it was scary I was pretty sure she would complete her ten pounds and then start on the audience.

Needless to say she won and afterwards she looked alike nothing happened it was scary. None the less I was complete full and ready to puke I ate more food that Thanksgiving it was scary I loved bacon FEST

Overall it was a super fun event and I can’t wait to go back this year 

2013 was a gay ole year


Man-Hiding-In-Closet

So this was a big year for me, In January I decided to accept myself for who am and stop wallowing in hatred I had been unable to accept my sexuality …EVER but for a multitude of reasons I decided it was time.

To say IM GAY

happy-sheep

Now I know this does not come to shocker for a lost of people and most the people in my life were not all to surprised with this revelation. I was never willing to accept it an always tried to suppress these feelings. I knew that was never a super masculine guy type.

Sword And Sandals

But I also never felt I was super gay.

I Struggled with this in my head , how could I not be attracted to women because that’s was I had grown up thinking was the right thing. It was hard for me to change the way that I thought it took a long time to realize that I was not wrong for not being attracted to women it took me some time to see that I didn’t have to be this to be a gay man.

So I can be gay and be myself which is simply

Thank you to everyone in my life who has given me support and love throughout this process and has been there to love me no matter what I decide. I could not have went though this without my amazing family and loving friends and the most amazing Boyfriend anyone could ask for. Thank you for your love and support

Almost been a year … WOW


Its almost been a year since my last blog post and wow has it been a big year. Probably the biggest year of my life, I am no where near where i was emotionally, intellectually, romantically or physically. I am happier , less prone to sad and depressed moments i even feel less anxious as a whole. Its been quite the year and maybe i should share some of my stories.

I’m getting really sad losing all my friends this year, it means I am going to have to go out and make some new ones. To say adios to one of my best friends leaving I am making a list of some of my favorite moments and memories. Here we go crystal 

• Crystal and Kathy , love having a blast chatting it up with some gin and tonnies

• Scary movies and drinks

I can’t begin to list all of the wonderful memories I have from spending time with Sara , she has been one of my closest friends for the past two years l I have had the privilege of volunteering with her , Living with her and working with her . I will miss the countless hours I have spent laughing, drinking and having an amazing time. I know that I will get to see her again because she is now going to be living up in Anchorage  Hopefully we get to have some fun times in the future.

Good luck crystal I will Miss you 

May the Odds be ever in your Favor


Since I live in Juneau and it’s been about six months this means it’s time for another one of my friends to be leaving. And since bad things happen in threes I am losing Mara, Sara and Eddie. I am sad by this turn of events but oh so very happy for their futures (I jokes).
First to go will be Mara and Eddie with their little monster Fenway. They are headed back to the east coast to a job with the New Hampshire state police. I’m sad to see these three go, I have just started to get to know Eddie and have enjoyed all of time with him as a friend 🙂 Fenway gets on my nerves but I have come to love this big brute and enjoy her gentle gumming of my arm. I of course will miss Mara the most. I have had the pleasure of working with her for a year and change and getting to know her as a friend throughout this time. She is a smart, funny, headstrong person who has become very enjoyable to get to know. I will miss our bickering and bitching and our joint distaste for anyone new or weird. You have truly made the last year of my life amazing and I don’t know what I will do without my daily dose of crazy Mara. You are such an amazing person who has made me better and I will miss having you there to talk to and help me with your wisdom and strength. I am soo happy for you and for the next big adventure in your life
I hope that life brings us together again and we can have some more great times, you guys are amazing and I will miss you sooo much.

Here is your virtual going away present, a giant bag of onions reminding you both to not let the little things get you and enjoy your amazing adventure.

Don’t forget to call me, LOVE YOU BOTH

Adios Amigos and “May the odds be ever in your favor”

…. Mara you can keep all your snarky grammar comments to yourself 

Run Little Indian


Goodbye my Little Indian
It seems to be the time of year where people leave Juneau, and this week another one of my dear friends will be leaving. Ankita is headed back home for a sabbatical and then off to India for a bath in the Ganges.
To commeriate my year with Ankita I have decided to make a list of my favorite moments and memories

My first encounter with her was at work where I thought she was a client, and then chastised her for not being able to correctly hang streamers and for not eating red meat.

Ditch driving
Halloween – Richard and the Catwoman
James Bond
Forts
Getting lost on the trail and assuming we would both end up dead.
Consuming jars of olives

Little Indian

There have been so many more beautiful moments I have been blessed at having with Ankita throughout the year.
My favorite thing about Ankita is how we grew as people and friends together , we spent a long time working together and learning , growing and figuring things out about ourselves and how to do our jobs in the most productive ways . We had to deal with a lot of emotionally difficult things together and without her love and support throughout it all I don’t know if I could have navigated my way through that learning curve.
Thank you for all the joy and laughs, I love you dearly and will miss you tons.
Have Fun
Be Safe
LOVE YOU little 😉
