Confirmed: [seemingly] impossible goals can be achieved

So I didn't really give enough credit to how awesome my Saturday night was in my own mind. In hindsight, it was kind of really fantastic. Largely because I can't remember the last time I had so much fun. And honestly, I always have way more fun with strangers that I meet just before going out. Is that sad? Whatever, it's true.

It was also partly fantastic because I achieved one of my life goals - the one that was least likely no less. HA! But more on that later.

Saturday was my good friend Dan's birthday partay. He's the only other friend I talk to from high school, and apparently the pattern there is I only keep in touch with my gay friends. But the pattern really is that I only keep in touch with my FUN friends. The level of lame that 99% of my high school friends have achieved will absolutely blow your mind. And not in a good way. So I don't want your mind to be blown.

Originally I wasn't going to go because I wasn't sure if I wanted to show up alone but then I was like, "D, you're crazy - it is never not a good time with Dan & you're increda-social...who cares if you're showing up alone!? Lest you forget how much fun you had the last time you went to a gay bar with Dan..."

Sidestory
One night last summer, I was out in Toronto with girlfriends (before I moved here) and managed to predrink a little too heavily which resulted in getting kicked out of the bar about 6 minutes after getting in. I'm not the type of person to pull others out of the bar to take care of me & ruin their fun - Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You (thanks Matthew 7:12...& Google) - so I told the girls not to worry about me, I had a plan & we'd meet up afterwards.

My brilliant plan consisted of asking Dan to text me the address of the bar he was at & I would Google Map my way over there via my BlackBerry. I mean, my BlackBerry is amazing but let's be serious - I was just kicked out of a bar...LOL Which is probably the best thing that could have happened because that night was awesome! The played Dance Mix '95. Need I say more? That night, the gay community stole my [dancing] heart.

Back to present day
So I hott up & go to Dan's birthday pre-drink. Pretty gay boys everywhere! They're just so much fun. Also met Dan's boyfriend - they're so so cute together :) Also met his ex-bf - he sure knows how to pick 'em! By now I'm beyond glad that I won't be dealing with any straight boy bullshit tonight & can just have fun! Sweet!

First tweet of the night: Caaaaan't even get over how social i am! I love gay boys :)

Just before leaving for the bar I was talking to a guy when it came up that this would also be his second time at a gay bar.

Me: Really? How come?
Guy: Well, I just normally go to other bars.
Me: Oh, ok then. How can a gay guy NOT prefer going to gay bars?! Craziness.

Well here's the thing...turns out he's not gay.

Me: Ooooh, omg I'm sorry I just kind of I assumed that!
Guy: No no that's ok...people often say I look very metro.
No darling. You look as gay as any of these other boys here. But leave it to me to find the one "straight" guy in a pack of like 30.

As we head to the bar, I'm totally not thrilled about how I now likely have to spend my night either A) getting rid of him [nicely], or B) expending a serious amount of effort into not giving out an "I could in some lifetime potentially be interested" vibe while also trying to have a good time.

Fortunately I didn't have to resort to either. While grabbing drinks at the bar with him, some guy chatted him up - shocking, I know - so I turned around to head back to the dance floor & who do I see...Dan's ex-bf.

Me: Hey you! Haven't seen ya around all night!
Ex: Ya eh! *stares at me with indescribable baby blues & a smile that is to die for...excuse me while I melt*

Last tweet of the night:
 I may or may not be making out with my gay friend;s ex-bf...yaaa meeee I'm almost acvcomplishing me life goala [excuse my shitty drunken typing]

And by making out I mean the type of hardcore macking on eachother all over the bar that you are embarrassed about the next day when your friends fill you in. And no, I am nowhere near embarrassed. How could I be embarrassed about achieving my #1 goal in life of hooking up with a gay guy? A gay guy as beautiful as him, no less.

Oh & don't worry - Dan was fully aware & ok with it. Not that I remembered to ask for permission ahead of time. Plus, 'straight' guy's face when he turned around to follow me to the dancefloor (which I only saw from the corner of my eye because I was already busy) - priceless.

My [dancing] heart still belongs to the gay community.

Target Tuesday


Linking up to Target Tuesday with Fabulous But Evil...you should too!


I kind of tried to avoid this because I knew it would lead to tears of withdrawal from living on the US border and being able to go to Target whenever I wanted to! Therefore I’ve decided to go home 2 weekends from now & go on a mega shopping spree. Mom has been warned. She's thanking Target Tuesday for that. I picked out so much stuff I practically have the next 2 weeks lined up!!!

Mossimo® Women's Sateen Ankle Pant - Chambray

Merona® Women's Sleeveless Scoop Neck Dress - Tear Drop Blue

Mossimo Supply Co. Juniors Sleeveless Knit Dress - Heather Grey

Xhilaration® Juniors Knit/Woven Color Block Tank Dress - White/Quartz Grey/Black

Mossimo® Women's Criss Cross Tank Dress - Scarlet

What's your Target wishlist?!?! :)

Excuse me while I drool...



Delicious. The only non-graphic adjective I can use.

Don't be a Drag, Just be a Queen!

Saw this wise status on Facebook the other day:

So let's see...Kelsey Grammer can end a 15 yr marriage by phone, Larry King can be on divorce #9, Britney Spears had a 55 hour marriage, Jesse James and Tiger Woods - while married - were having sex with EVERYONE, 53% of Americans get divorced and 30-60% cheat on their spouses. Yet, same-sex marriage is going to destroy the institution of marriage? Really?

I’m not really going to comment because it’s self-explanatory. However, I still struggle to understand why people care so much about controlling others’ actions when they have no affect one your own life.

Is restricting gay marriage going to dissolve the GLBT community? Umm, no. All you’re really doing is restricting them from supporting the economy with outrageous wedding spending. And you know, all that marriage happiness.

This is an excellent lead in to what is becoming my theme of the past week -  Gaga’s Born This Way. 


I'd love to hear what you think of the video & her antics in general!


And since y'all loved my Gaga picture post so much the other day, here is a slideshow of the entire concert!!!




Hope you enjoy :)

Gaga-mazing!

I was one ridiculously lucky duck to get to go to Lady Gaga's Monster Ball in Toronto the other day. The show was A-freaking-MAZING! Gaga is an incredible performer & is so so good to her fans [minus having to wait for her for far too long]!
So ready for Gaga to finally come out...1.5hrs later!
[I'm still wearing my purple 'bracelet' lol]

So amazing when she did come out though!
[wearing my fave colour no less! how'd she know!?]

Keytar shot for Lauren

Gaga with her little prodigy Maria Aragon
 Maria did a cover of Gaga's new single "Born This Way" on Youtube, which grabbed the attention of my local radio station who connected Maria with Gaga on the phone & Gaga being the awesome Lady Monster that she is, invited her to join her at the show. Check out Maria's claim to fame here.

Gaga doing what she does best - playing beautiful tunes on a flaming piano

She's fierce; her dancers are fierce...everything was just FIERCE!

Alejandro!
[notice the little monster claws in the the bottom of photo]

Bad Romance! <3
[aka the shit I always get myself into]
I haven't gotten around to the vid(s) yet but I will sometime this week & post then. Just keepin' ya coming back for more! LOL I wish I could have taken you all with me! No worries...next time Little Monsters ;)

Let's all wave buh-bye to #LatinLover!

I've pretty much analyzed this topic to death in my head but I should probably conclude the story of #LatinLover since I made it into somewhat of a big deal over the past month. He turned out to be pretty useless. Is that sufficient? No? Damn, ok.

As I mentioned in this post, things on my end had cooled off while he was away on his Southeast Asia trip. I tried so hard not be attached that I became pretty much entirely detached & kind of shut down to the whole situation.

Honestly, it should not be that easy because I have tried many-a-times to force myself to get over guys & it never rarely works so well. And I was supposed to actually be into this one! This was before he did things to piss me off of course.

Before going on his trip, he had asked me what I was up to the last weekend of February & proceeded to invite me to a cottage weekend trip with his friends. I was open to the idea (even though I'm kind of a princess when it comes to 'outdoors-y' things) so I told him we could talk about it when he was back.

So when he got back he obviously brought up the trip. I asked for details such as you know...how are we even getting there? All I got was a vague, maybe, not-100%-sure answer. Umm ok - so how about you figure that out & then talk to me? K thanks.

By Wednesday these plans had gotten overly complicated & I just don’t do complicated. But what really got me was that while discussing this, he didn't respond to my texts for 4 hours. You've got to be kidding me right now. You're doing an excellent job of convincing me to come, really.

Sorry, I guess I should have sat you down from day one and explained to you that communication is the most important thing to me and shitty skills are a complete deal breaker. I have no time in my life to deal with poor communication. Especially when I know how psycho-analytical I can get - it's for my own sanity. And therefore everyone else's.

So since we're all intelligent adults here - who here thinks there's still a remote chance of me going on this cottage trip that I pretty much know nothing about? Thank you, my point exactly.

I didn't bother responding or initializing convo after that but he asked me to come over after my Bulgarian folk dancing class [which btw, I love! :D] – I said maybe because frankly, I didn't really care about seeing him.

Well Bulgarian folk dancing puts me in such a good mood, that I figured I should really give the guy a chance since he hadn't really done anything wrong and I hadn't seen him in nearly 3 weeks. Once I got there, the first things he asks me is, "So are you coming tomorrow?!"

To me this question signifies two things: 1) you are being fucking ignorant of the last 24hrs & 2) you're just plain dumb.

Both of the above are clearly true because his response to finding out I wasn't joining him was, "What?! You're not coming!?"

Honestly, I've had a long day & I'm tired. Now you're making my brain bleed. Do you think that after our discussions, or lack thereof, that transpired over the last 48 hours I would be coming? Can we FOR THE LOVE OF GOD just PLEASE watch Jersey Shore so that I can go home to bed? K thanks.

I'm fairly certain that by the end of the night he sensed something was up. Maybe he read my mind while we were cuddling & making out when I was thinking, "Wow, you could honestly just be any warm body right now & it wouldn't even matter to me. This is really not good." Either way, I left & went to bed.

The next [Friday] morning I again felt kind of bad because again - he hadn't really done anything to deserve my 'lack of enthusiasm'. Before work I texted wishing him a good day. No response. That's ok probably busy at work, whatever. After work I wished him a good weekend. No response.

And that was the case for the next 96 hours. That's 4 days by the way - more than 50% of one full week. I'm sorry, I didn't realize I was dating a little girl! Grow some fucking balls buddy & if I've hurt your feelings use your words, not immaturity, to tell me how you feel. And whatever lame way he decided to finally break the ice with doesn't even matter at this point. It's beyond over for me and mentally, I've completely moved on.

As per the advice I recently received, I should quit wasting my time and his. Done. My biggest concern right now - getting back the book I lent him.

And fighting to get back the one thing I truly want - if I even still have a chance. More on that another time.

My 6° of Separation from Vinny Guadagnino

Vinny of Jersey Shore famousness was at my hometown club hotspot - Dragonfly - last weekend. I would have made the trek if I had a partner in crime...and if I had had any remote chance of seeing him. Regardless, here's a photo of him post-appearance at the club.


Vinny's lookin' as cute as ever! Along with my juicehead ex-boyfriend. Thaaaaaaaaaaat's right. I dated that steroid-pumping bouncer...and loved every single minute of it!

Back in 2008 I was looking for love in all the wrong places - let's be real here, I still am - and had the most spectacular summer fling with said bouncer.

It was everything I would have wanted in a summer fling - started out of nowhere, full of late nights, early mornings, can't-get-enough-of-eachother amounts of time spent together [aka a lot], club perks for the bouncer's girlfriend and her friends (that's me! haha), tears at the airport...and an ending that was just as abrupt as the beginning.

And then I rebounded with Frenchie LOL If you don't know how that went then check out part 1, part 2, part 3 & part 4 of the Frenchie saga.

If you get the chance to date a bouncer without getting attached, I recommend it. It's a fun experience ;)
