Home for the Holiday

Well, today I'm blogging from my parents house. I've never lived here because they moved a few times since I went to college, so I'm just staying in the guest room. Took a train down from the city last night. Today, my mom is making cookies, but otherwise I don't think there is much planned. That's fine by me. Whenever I come to visit, we usually just hang out and watch tv, nap, go to the movies, etc. It's not like tons and tons of fun, but it's definitely relaxing and quiet. There's really not much to do around here anyway. And I don't have a car, so it's not like I can go off to visit friends either. I guess they could come visit me, but I'm only here for a few days and I hardly get to see my parents, so I feel bad not hanging out with them. Says the guy who's still in bed at 11:30 while they've been up since 7am. Haha.

Yesterday I went and saw Avatar. I def recommend you go see it. I mean, it does kinda feel like a video game at first and the story is somewhat familiar (Fern Gully anyone?), but the film was visually stunning, and I will say that for a movie who is 3 hours long, I really did not get bored at all. I went to the 3d showing too which was fun. :)

Otherwise, there isn't much going on. I have a couple guys I'm supposed to hang out with when I get back to the city. A few for dates, and some that just want to fuck. I'm getting to the point where maybe I'm ok with that. As long as they seem like they're cool guys who don't mind having an actual conversation, who cares if we have sex too while I'm there. Lol. Ideally I want something serious though, but until someone starts to actually become serious, I may as well enjoy myself. And who knows, it may lead to meeting more people. I'm not saying I'm gonna be a big slut now, but I think I'm just trying to be more open minded about who I'm willing to meet up with.

Sorry I'm not commenting much lately. I'm literally two weeks behind on reading all the blogs I follow. It's all because of my Mexico trip. I got behind. lol. So, sorry if you randomly get comments on posts that are over a week old. Haha.

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you all have wonderful holidays!

Back to the Grind

Well I just returned from a great trip. Well, that's not entirely true. Ive been back for almost a week now. Have been working and enjoying Christmas in the city. It's so awesome this time of year. Going out at night, all the streets are lit with christmas decorations, and people are bundled up and looking good on their way to Christmas parties. Speaking of which, we just had ours last night. Went to a vodka bar in Soho that was a lot of fun. Normally we do something very formal, five course meal, fancy place, get dressed up, the works. This year, they just found a nice bar and rented the place out for the night. The food was great and the drinks were awesome! And I'm not gonna lie, I looked pretty damn sharp. I borrowed a vest from my roommate who's essentially the same size as me and wore that over a plaid shirt with a skinny black tie. Then I wore dark jeans and some very nice new Ted Baker shoes that I've been saving for something special. Honestly, and this is pretty gay, I think dressing up is half the fun.

Today I had the day off. Had two days of vacation left that I needed to use by the end of the year, so I figured the day after the office party was probably a good time to use one. And I'm definitely glad I did. Stayed in bed until around noon. Then moved to the couch. Haha. I then met an old friend (a guy I dated a while back in August) to see a movie. We saw Up in the Air. Gotta say, this was hands down one of the better films I've seen in a while. There's not a lot I can say about it, but I was totally engaged the entire time and really enjoyed the characters; and all the actors did a really good job. Doesn't hurt that George Clooney is pretty easy on the eyes either. ;)

Here are a few pics from Mexico. It was so much fun. I'm really glad I went. Sadly, my tan is already beginning to fade. Sigh...
