Damn it. I need to find a *new* boyfriend? Finding the first one was difficult enough.

At any rate, off to NYC with the boy in four hours. He's never been outside of Canada except to Florida once at the end of high school.

Excitement and/or horror awaits!

spent NYE/D with the bf, made soup, watched 7 movies, snuggled with the kitty, yadda yadda. Best NYE ever.

NYE was spent going out with friends and then losing those friends and stumbling into other friends, etc. etc. etc.

Disorienting, but ultimately fun night.

we hosted a NYE rager at our house with a keg and a band (Salamander Wool) playing in our basement and champagne corks and bottle rockets getting shot off the back porch at midnight- it was kinda hardcore, didn't get to bed until 6 am- Martin was the bartender and I was the DJ so we barely saw each other at our own party . . .

I am still recovering from Christmas, I think, at least emotionally. There were certainly good moments but some really upsetting things, too. Plus all of the usual holiday exhaustion and intoxication. A funeral on the 27th for a friend who had been murdered kinda capped it all off.

One good part is that my mom's side of the family is finally ready to meet D. -- he was extended an invite to 2 family functions, even -- but he's not quite ready for that. But it's progress!

I am a gay guy at a music festival. It's Jenny's hat. That was 2004 at Intonation n/k/a Pitchfork.

Wow, have we ever talked abt how we were both at this?

I've met tons of straight guys who love to be "goofy" about same-sex stuff in a Jackass kind of way. Especially when I worked in restaurants and when I used to go to house parties w/ more 20-somethings. They did it for laughs.

I used to work with two straight guys who put on a show by talking sexy ("sexy") and rub each other's dicks through their pants as a joke. One of them got a new girlfriend who stormed out of the bar in a shit fit the first time she saw them do that. The other guy's GF soothed her, but she was never OK with it.

xp - I don't think we have! It was the first time many of the ChiLX people met: Jenny, Jeff, and I knew each other, obv., and we met La Lechera, jaymc, n/a, and Sarah (his wife, I forget her screen name).

I've kissed a couple of theoretical straight guys; no tongue though.

The straight guys who I kissed or groped or was groped by were definitely straight, but we were also definitely just goofing.

Especially in NC - where I never had a gay friend, so I hung out w/ a lot of straight guys - I was the training wheels gay for bros to be tolerant of. Given enough booze, this led them to want to confront taboos like another guy doing body shots out of his girlfriend's navel or boobs or poking another guy's dick.

At the time it was gratifying to be the special gay that defeated homophobia, but thinking back, I heard "I like Jesse b/c he's gay, but not like other gay guys," which is pretty fucked up. If someone said that now we would commence a Very Special Episode.

yeah, i dunno, it bugs me that i'm not being assertive at all when ppl assume i'm straight tho. i'm not saying i have to shout it from the rafters. i guess a couple things that have happened in the past week have brought it into relief. there's a straight couple i've formed a very intense friendship with in the past few months and i've found myself on the verge of coming out to them at a few appropriate moments, but always stopped myself. i was just talking to the gf last week about my lack of love and she was all "don't worry, just let it happen and you'll find the right girl", and i felt stupid and cowardly for not coming out to her at that moment. and then the other thing, a (less close, admittedly) friend teasingly suggested i might be gay in a way that seemed to imply his true assumption is that i'm straight. which was kind of revealing like do i strike ppl as kinda faggy but not like actually gay per se?

and yeah, bi concerns, although i'm p confused about that tbh. like i know i'm very much attracted to women, and i've dated and fooled around with women in the past, but something always feels kind of awkward and not quite correct about it that it doesn't when i'm with a guy. so, i'm not sure how interested i am in women for practical purposes at this point. and i'm always worried that my gay side will drive them away. i've kind of come to the conclusion that i could be with a bi woman but not a straight woman. i'm totally stuck on whether to tell ppl i'm gay or bi. maybe i should just tell ppl i'm a kinsey 4. the last guy i dated, after i said something about my gayness, was like "no, you are so totally bi!" i often wish i was completely 100% gay, that would be so much simpler!

Despite having enjoyed my handful of experiences with women, I tend to round up to gay. It's just more convenient and more accurately describes what I'm into/looking/for/want or just sort of go for the all-purpose queer.

In other news, I just remembered this afternoon that idly staring at cute guys on the bus is one of life's great joys.

Rev, it's tough to tell established friends if you weren't actually in the closet and hiding it from them. If you're just coming out of the closet, it's a lot easier to answer the inevitable "Why didn't you tell me before?!" than if you are correcting their assumptions. Anyway, I'm wishing you the best.

I never had sleeping around days, I guess. Never figured out *how* to do it. I dunno. It's not like I'm opposed to the concept - hell, I'm allowed to - but the entire concept of picking up guys remains totally daunting and confusing to me. I feel like I stumbled into a pretty decent relationship through dumb luck.

Tbh, school and life are so exhausting these days I don't have it in me to go out that much (and despite not picking up ever, I love going out). Went to a concert Friday night that ended at 2:30 for the first time in months and Saturday I was hungover and unproductive until sundown.

The boy's been expressing a desire to indulge in his 'wild youth' days, though, so I guess I'll just live vicariously through him.

but the entire concept of picking up guys remains totally daunting and confusing to me.

Me too until I have way too many drinks in me and I turn a corner and I'm suddenly starting conversations all over the place and evidently being good at breaking the ice in a way I normally am not.

Last night I went to the somewhat seedy Lucky H0r5h0e and talked to a bunch of Mexican and Guatemalan guys celebrating two birthdays. One of them - short and cute - asked to friend me on FB but I'm not sure he succeeded. I was like just take my phone number, but being a modern man, he doesn't like using the phone.

“Unlike most artworks in a museum, you are allowed to touch this piece and to take away a piece of candy. Gonzalez-Torres made this artwork in memory of Ross Laycock. At the time the work was created, Ross had recently died of causes related to AIDS. The candy pile starts each day at 175 pounds, which was Ross’ ideal body weight. As visitors take candy, the pile gets smaller. This process mimics Ross’ weight loss as a result of his illness. Museum staff replenishes the candy regularly. Gonzalez-Torres’ decision to portray Ross with multicolored, shiny candies was a thoughtful one. Seeing such a large pile of candy on the floor stimulates notions of abundance, sweetness, and happiness—feelings associated with Ross, which the artist wished to share with viewers in a unique way.”

The pile was the Untitled (Portrait of Ross in L.A.) piece. I don't entirely remember what the stack-of-paper piece was. I gather he's done a few different ones. This was at SFMOMA in early 2004.

it's weird. he found me on OKC over a year ago and we went on one date, and then, for various reasons i don't really want to recount here, we never saw each other again...until i ran into him two weeks ago out of the blue at an art opening, and we made plans to hang out. so this was technically our third date.

i think he's really wonderful and it's nice for a change to actually know for sure that the feeling is mutual.

I'm going to stop fighting it and just say it everywhere: the Diamanda Galas performance tonight was amazing!!

Besides all the expected stuff - awesome vocals and piano accompaniment - I loved that she did quite a bit of talking and she was entertaining and funny. She was quirky, wry, and darkly silly. Like Jenny said, you wouldn't expect her to be so adorable! When she took a bow she pointed at people near the front and acting sort of goofy (I honestly expected her to do finger guns) then she turned and walked offstage in her weird, gangly way, with her hips thrust forward.

That stuff didn't overshadow the performance for me, but it stood out b/c I hadn't seen that side of her before. I had suspected that she had a good sense of humor b/c it just makes sense for heavy, morbid, and serious preoccupations to be accompanied by a sense of humor.

What a great night!

IPOD DIES, ERASES ALL MUSIC ON ITSELF FOR NO REASON, HAS TO BE RESTORED TO FACTORY SETTINGS

12:50 - finally get ipod syncing again. but it now has to sync all 3000 songs that were originally on it instead of just a couple

Urgh. A former hook-up asked if I wanted to hang out later tonight and I had to give this long spiel about how I'm in a pretty committed relationship at the moment and that if we hung out we would probably hookup, and by doing so I'd be lying to Phillip and him as well. I really hate excluding people, but if it's a choice between possibly hurting someone's feelings and betraying my loved one, the right decision is clear (but still sucks to make).

sometimes I go to Trader Joe's and buy tortillas and spend an evening making 8 or 10 burritos and freezing them to eat for lunch of work and then I sit on my couch and pet my cat and watch Mary Tyler Moore.

I remember when I used to have things to say and stories to tell

(lurking) 1.5: 1 for jasmine/long grain, but 2:1 for medium grain

Brown rice will take longer to cook, but ratios should be about the same.

yeah, stevie, i am thinking it's pretty silly for jay's new bf to try to prevent us from seeing each other. jay feels a bit manipulated, and it sounds like they might break up. would you guys say this type of situation is common in your experiences or not? i can think of at least one couple i know who remained close friends after breaking up, even when they went on to date new people. i am trying to see it from this guy's perspective but i dunno. jay and i experienced some very intense shit over the years. there's no way we're going to just drop out of each other's lives.

lou, as far as i'm concerned, that's shitty, and any relationship two people choose to have should be between those two people, whether they're exes or not. i'm still good friends with one of my exes, we both date other people, and if any of those people said that i couldn't see said ex because it made them feel uncomfortable, i'd have a nice long conversation with them, and if they couldn't accept it, tell them to fuck off.

steve, yeah, i guess i knew where you were coming from, too. what i didn't say about that trick (and about the book i learned it from) was that it comes from people around the world, in mostly 'developing' or 'undeveloped' countries, where a measuring cup isn't something to be found readily in the kitchen, as it is not really a necessity. that was where my 'fuck a measuring cup' bit came in.

lex pretend, Tuesday, 13 March 2012 14:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

My perfect-every-time-rice (no sticking, even in stainless steel):

1. wash a cup of rice if it’s basmati, don’t bother if it’s generic long grain (rinse it in a strainer until the water runs clear)
2. saute the rice in your saucepan with olive oil (or canola I guess) until the rice starts smelling like popcorn
3. add 2 cups of water and a good pinch of salt
4. cover and drop the heat down to VERY LOW
5. set a timer for 20 minutes and fuhgeddaboudit
6. when the timer goes off, turn the heat off, don’t take the lid off, set the timer for 10 more minutes and fuhgeddaboudit
7. PROFIT

(don't fluff the rice until after the 20+10 minutes; don't bother washing it; use as little oil as you can get away with and still coat the grains, just a teaspoon or two)

I thought rice cookers were silly b/c you can cook rice in a pan, but the thing was, I NEVER cooked rice in a pan. If I ever did cook rice at all, it was Minute Rice or even pre-cooked frozen rice from TJ. But now I cook tons of rice + other things in the rice cooker. It is fool-proof: measure your rice, measure your water, cover, press one switch, walk away, and 15 minutes later: RICE.

today i was just recounting to my housemate the last time i tried to toss pancakes a few years ago, which ended in utter disaster*. i have not tried since

*the pancakes kept flopping limply and not going over so i tried to do it a bit harder and somehow tossed the entire frying pan :(

pancakes are one thing i am very good at. golden brown on both sides.

The key is to have the pan fairly hot and flip JUST as bubbles appear in the batter.

jason used to love to cook for me because i would get very excited and devour everything. i could never return the favor though. the best i could do was pay for the groceries.

i mean, i can make some mean french toast! and i used to be able to do a good job approximating my mom's mac 'n cheese, but i can't bring myself to eat that much dairy all at once anymore.

i would TOTALLY watch a show on A&E that just profiles people who try and boil rice but in the process break down and cry and nearly go insane

ha- haven't seen it but i'm pretty sure food network has something like this.

i've no idea how one even begins to bake chicken or indeed do anything with raw meat.

yep. plus raw meat makes me want to hurl. :) and marinating? i'd inevitably find a way to fuck that up real good. maybe i could learn! i'm as anxious about cooking as i am driving. i stress out if i don't know exactly what i'm doing, and my inclination is to panic as soon as i do something wrong. but once i've done it like 5, 6, 7 times, then i'm set.

yeah. driving is the grown-up thing i still don't do.

parents split and cars became inaccessible partway through getting my full license (we have graduated licensing) and now I live somewhere where I never really need to. I know that I should but at this point it just prompts so much anxiety and i'm all about public transit and walking places.

I mean, future road trips with boy etc. want to be possible, but it's tricky. Boat may have sailed there.

I don't understand how I ever afforded. I owned cars for 11 years - since I was 17 years old - until I moved to Chicago and I always paid for my own gas, insurance, and maintenance. And tickets. So many tickets. And lawyers.

Now it seems impossibly expensive even though I'm making far more money than I was in my late teens.

I miss doing this. I've taken to podcasting on buses in the past year which is just NOT the same thing and it's a bad habit. Music has taken over headphones at the gym where podcasts once ruled and thus books on the bus have been shoved to the side. Might be the solution to the lack of fiction I've read lately.

Xps just ask, and just be completely honest about your lack of skills. Cooking rice and pasta, sauteing veggies, marinating meats, boiling/steaming veggies, baking and pan-frying meat, roasting - these are all simple techniques that are (usually) easy to learn, and will provide you with many different kinds of meals. Get your friend to do each technique and explain why they are doing each piece of that technique. Then have them walk you through doing it yourself another time.

Just an idea! Also: alcohol should be involved in these lessons, if you think it'll help you not feel so pressured.

i brown diced onions & jalapenos & minced garlic in a skillet, add tomato paste, adobo, cumin, cayenne, black pepper, let it get all nice and carmelized and sticky, and deglaze with red wine vinegar. add to simmering beans.

you can cook dried benas without a pre-soak, it takes longer tho. also soaking beans allows them to start germinating so they release some of the enzymes that cause gas, so soaked beens are less fart-making. #protip #farts

That seems like a really good interaction about gayness.

IMO in a perfect world being gay wouldn't be totally normal and unremarkable, but it would be perfectly OK. I would love it if it were OK to acknowledge that buttfucking and dating the same sex is sort of odd - and maybe even a little funny* - but in no way a bad thing. Meh, so you do sex and love in a way that most people don't, whatever.

* As Donna Dasher in Female Trouble, sex is all about "ludicrous positions."

Last night I attended the most incredible drag show I have ever seen/will ever see in my entire life. Sharon Needles (from the  current season of Drag Race) was thre and at one point during her performance of Marilyn Manson's "Beautiful People" she collected all her tips and put them in a blender with a ton of vodka, which she later drank. This was actually later upstaged by a queen who sang "Part Of Your World" from The Little Mermaid while doing this:

which ended with her hanging limp like a drowned corpse 15 feet above the stage.  Holy shit.
