So with the holiday season here I have been running around and just snapping pictures of all things Holiday. I was not near Time Square really so don't expect all that crazy stuff, but more subtle, nice and simple. First line is Phone cam. Second line is the Canon digital. The phone cam is actually quite good and of course it is more convenient. My phone is always in my hand when I am walking around so it makes it so easy to just snap all things around me. The Canon Digital on the other hand is usually in my bag or in my back pocket. If I am walking I don't really like to have to stop and take a picture but I know if I stop with this camera it will look good, given I get the right angles and so forth. When I pull out this camera I want to get a really nice picture as opposed to the phonecam which I will just snap off ten pictures in a couple of seconds and just check them out later. I love them both. Nothing will change.
I finally was able to sit and watch the trailer for "Transformers" . Looks promising, but I think I might have to hold out until I see more. Speaking trailers I am off to Apple Movie trailers to see what else I have been missing.
Personal Screen is a webisode/shopping list website that I just found out about. The show is actually called " in men we trust " and the first episode is out and online now. A very smart idea for those who, women primarily, love what they see on a show but have no idea where to find it. With this show various items are sidebarred as you are watching with the designer, cost and location to purchase. They also sidebar such things as restaurants that the characters are at, as well as bios, inner thoughts and various accessories. I thought it was very smart and I will be watching just for the fun of it.
So, now Rosie has started a war of words with Donald Trump and not only did the Donald come out swinging but he came out to hurt feelings and just be plain mean. Rosie started it by commenting on Donald and, my girl, Tara Connors(Miss USA 2006). "Left the first wife, had an affair, left the second wife, had an affair. Had kids both times, but he's the moral compass for 20-year-olds in America," O'Donnell said to roars of audience laughter. "Donald, sit and spin, my friend." She continued: "He inherited a lot of money. wait a minute, and he's been bankrupt so many times where he didn't have to pay. ... I just think that this man is sort of like one of those, you know, snake oil salesmen in 'Little House on the Prairie.'" So here is "The Donald's" response:
Had a great Thai dinner the other night at a new-ish place in Chelsea called Room Service. After urban volleyball match Bry, Ariel, Marjun and I didn't know if we wanted BBQ or Thai. I decided on Thai and picked the new place down the street. Great decor, not over the top but it had its pluses. After sitting around forever trying to figure out what we would have two of us ordered the Pad Thai, one had the Pad Thai special(pad thai with shrimp then wrapped in fried egg whites) and I can't remember the 4th, but it had chicken and some kind of red sauce. All was good. I would say head there if you are in town. We had the window seat, the only place to sit unless your date isn't that cute, but then again wouldn't all your dates be cute? Be Well.
I really have been writing down things to talk about for the past two months or so but just haven't been blogging them. There is plenty of television shows to talk about; from Heroes to Brothers & Sisters to America's Next Top Model. Yes, I love trash tv. That will be discussed. Politics? Well, that has never been my thing, but there are some things to say about gay marriage and, sadly, this surgery that took place yesterday that could give control back to the Republicans in the Senate. Well, anyway, let me make a real list and just start writing. You will beg me to stop writing, hopefully, by the time I get it all out.
You scored as Angel. Angel: Angels are the guardians of all things, from the smallest ant to the tallest tree. They give inspiration, love, hope, and positive emotion. They live among humans without being seen. They are the good in all things, and if you feel alone, don't fear. They are always watching. Often times they merely stand by, whispering into the ears of those who feel lost. They would love nothing more then to reveal themselves, but in today's society, this would bring havoc and many unneeded questions. Give thanks to all things beautiful, for you are an Angel.

My friend Tim died in his sleep this weekend, right after returning from a two month gig in Hawaii. Sadly I found out in a strange way just this AM, but I had to put his face out into the world at least one more time in my own small way. Kind of funny....we actually started talking a couple of years ago...went out on some dates....then seemed to lose each other for a year or two. In the past year we have gone out for coffee, talked about the business, all the things going on in his life(the work, the men, the family, the friends and the travel). He was quite a sweet guy. Last saw him a couple of months ago while he was getting ready to sublet his apartment so he could go to Hawaii where he would be working for two months. He would pop up with an IM to me at least once a week with "Aloha". My last "Aloha" came this past Friday. Aloha to you, Tim. You're my superstar. Thanks to Rosie for the pictures.
For those who don't know December 1st is Worlds AIDS Day . The day when ALL should remember those known and unknown to them who have died or are living day to day with HIV/AIDS. Okay, now that you have stopped what you were doing, quieted down and hopefully gone to light a candle in memory of someone with AIDS I need you to do something else. Get tested. Here in NYC I know a pharmacy in Chelsea that will give you private, anonymous testing EVERY Friday of the year. Corner of 20th Street and 8th Avenue for those who don't know. Give your time or money or love to an organization or person who can really use it, again this is something that does affect us all daily no matter if you know one person or 50 who are afflicted. Just Don't Forget.
