You're Not Living In The Real World


What's up, y'all? It's MONDAY! Welcome BACK!

Well, Stevie Nicks ended her summer tour last night in New Jersey. Stevie is reportedly taking several months off to vacation in Europe until she returns to the studio to record her next, and most likely last, CD with Fleetwood Mac. I have some very exciting Stevie Nicks related news that I can't share yet here (that's a little teaser for you) but trust me, it's good... Let me just tell you that a certain fan (me) is getting something that no other fan has from someone in Stevie's inner circle. Again, I will share all of the details once I am allowed to, but I am super excited...


Okay, does everyone remember Davis from MTV's "Real World (Denver)?" He was the really HOT token gay that season? "We've" mentioned him here before (because I have talked with him before). Well, yesterday whilst working off those pudding packs (yes, you caught me - I am back on the pudding packs but have still lost 22 pounds), Davis was running shirtless throughout Atlanta's Piedmont Park. I never miss a hot guy (it's a real talent of mine) but throw in a micro-celebrity and I'm all over it. Anyhoo, the first time he ran by me, I knew it was Davis. (Did I mention he is HOT?) I had my cell phone with me (because I was waiting for a call from someone from Stevie's inner circle...) so I snapped a picture of Davis the second time he ran by me. He is stunning. Simply perfect. One of our "readers" (and friends), Mr. P., even knows Davis (he lives with one of his friends). I will share the pics as soon as I can get them from my cell phone to the blog.

All in all, it was a pretty good Sunday!

Did you know Jenny Craig celebrity spokeswomen Valerie Bertenelli (I can't spell her name) and Kirstie Alley (can't spell her name either) both gained back all of their weight? What happened girls?

Okay, Kevie's ti-red. Here is a Stevie Nicks song that is playing in my head right now. It reminds me of a person I recently met... The lyrics are pretty obvious - no need to explain them. (I admit, Stevie seems a little under the influence in this one. I'm relieved she is drug-free today, aren't you?)

Goodbye for now.

500th Post


It's SUNDAY everyone and today marks "our" 500th post!

In honor of our 500th post, "we'll" be taking the day off (we've earned it, right).

"We" hope YOU have a GR-EAT day.

(Here's Andy Roddick losing at Wimbledon. He still looks great though, and that's what counts.)

Bye!

Bailamos Juan


Cuál está encima de perras? In case you haven't listened to your "Drive & Learn Spanish" CD's, like me, this means, "What's up bitches?" ("Bailamos Juan?" i.e., "Shall we dance, Juan?" is the only Spanish I remember. Really, it's all the Spanish one needs.) We are all about the culture here at the "Corner."

How are YOU today (really, "we" want to know). It's SATURDAY, the BEST day of the week, in my opinion. (As a matter of fact, what are you doing here? Get out and do something f-u-n, fun!)


I know this is "old" news, but did anyone catch "Supernanny" on Thursday night? It seems this is the only show I (unintentionally) watch anymore. I don't even have children. (It's the only thing on when I am ready to relax in front of the television.) The formula is the same every week but the cast of characters changes. You've seen it, you know... Inept parents - mom is at the end of her rope, can't quite discipline the kids, that wine bottle is her only friend, while dad is away, i.e., nowhere to be found. Occasionally the Grandma makes an appearance but just fucks things up even worse with her mixed messages. "Swear for Grandma, come on, Grandma won't tell." "Fuck the naughty chair!" All the while, the little bastards (the children, I mean) run amok until Nanny Jo stops in for the week, points out the error of the parents ways, introduces some old fashioned British discipline and revolutionizes the families behaviors in just one hour. A real miracle worker, I think. Anyways, I didn't have anything else to write about today, so I thought I'd ask if anyone had watched "Supernanny." (I heard there is a great new show called "Juvie" which brings us, the viewer, into the juvenile detention centers around the country. It's where you end up I suppose if Supernanny can't do anything for you.

Okay, I really have no idea what I am writing about at this point, so let's cut our losses and call it a day, okay.

I hope YOU have a GR-EAT Saturday!

Bailamos, bitches!

Friday's HOT Guy... (Postponed)


C'mon in bitches, let's get this party started! It's FRIDAY!

"We" are postponing today's HOT Guy in lieu of something far more important. A celebration! "We" would like to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to "our" dear friend June! In true "Corner" fashion, please raise whatever you are drinking (coffee, juice, gin - I don't know what you drink at this time of the day) and wish JUNE a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! If you've read the blog for any length of time, than you know that June is also a dear friend of mine. She is a true humanitarian, often donating her time to others in need. June spends most weekends delivering Communion to those too ill/elderly to leave their home, handing out peanut butter crackers to the homeless, helping others navigate the maze that is the health care system, lending an ear to listen to the latest boy troubles (okay, she only does that for me), etc.. She does so many things for so many people, I can't list everything here. June's only flaw is that she continually puts others needs before herself. (I want her to be a selfish bastard, like me!) Anyone who meets her, loves her, and it doesn't hurt that she is also adorable. (As a matter of fact, she currently has 3 stalkers who won't leave her alone.) She's been around the world and back again and she never meets a stranger. So three cheers for June on this special day! "We" love you.

This song is for June, the "original" Dancing Queen...



Okay, that's IT for this Friday (I'm very busy people). Come back tomorrow when we "toast" another special "friend" (who doesn't read our blog).

LUV -

Kevin

Now turn your speakers WAY UP and DANCE to another one of my "favorite" songs...

I Love Robert Gant!


WUT UP BITCHES? How is EVERYONE tonight? I hope YOU are doing just great.

I was JUST commenting to someone recently that I hadn't met any celebrities yet this year (is "hadn't" a word?). Some of you might recall that last year, "Kev" met Reichen Lehmkuhl (he is super sexy), Leslie Jordan (he used my cell phone), and Anderson Cooper (aahhh, I love Anderson Cooper) to name a few (in addition to shaking Stevie Nicks' hand and being winked at (no lie) by Ricky Martin). Anyhoo, TONIGHT, "Kev" accidentally met best selling author and sister of actress Joan Collins, Jackie Collins! Jackie is touring the country in a bus (no lie, it was parked out front) pimping her new book, "Married Lovers." Now I haven't actually read "Married Lovers" (or any other Jackie Collins book) and didn't know she would be at "Outwrite" (the bookstore near my "crib") at the same time I needed to A) register for this weekend's 5K "Pride Run" and B) pick up a gift for my dear friend, "Princess." So there she is, signing her book. I got a little excited (she does have a bus after all) but opted NOT to purchase "Married Lovers." (It must have gay innuendo since she was signing it at a gay bookstore?) I probably should not count her as a celebrity "meeting," but I sat about three feet next to her. She signed her book and I filled out my "Pride Run" entry form.


Those of you who know me, know that I dream "in celebrity." It's TRUE! I don't dream about ordinary people I know (like you)... I only dream about people I want to know (i.e., rich and famous people). Last night was no exception (and it was a good one - very exciting!) Anyhoo, in my dream, my latest "crush" (who I won't divulge the identity of here) and actor Robert Gant (you know Robert Gant, the really, really HOT guy from "Queer As Folk") were fighting over me, yours truly. They both wanted my affections. (I am telling you, losing a little weight does wonders!) I told Robert Gant, again, in my dream, "I am sorry actor Robert Gant - I am with (insert name of latest crush who will remain anonymous). You cannot have me." (Robert was dejected but understood since I met (insert name of latest crush here again) first. Anyway, I woke up and thought WOW, I just turned down Robert Gant. (Robert, if you are reading this, please know I would never do that in real life. I love you.)


I don't know if this will excite anyone, but WHILST in Cambridge last weekend, we saw the Rindge and Latin School, which is the high school that Matt Damon and Ben Affleck attended. (I forgot to mention that in my posts about Boston...) I looked for both Matt and Ben while I was there, but neither were to be found. AND, our dear friend Carrie resides in the SAME town as several of the members of Aerosmith! Carrie mentioned that it is common to see them around town and driving past her house! (Isn't that the coolest?)

Okay, that is IT for tonight!

Have a GR-EAT Friday everyone.

"Kev"

Here is my favorite Aerosmith song... (Steven Tyler is to my aunt what Stevie Nicks is to me. She loves him.)

Bootylicious



Hey HO! Look at YOU! YOU are back! (And so am I!)

What's up people?

THIS YouTube video was sent to "us" today and "we" thought we'd share it with you. Cute kid.



Okay... I PROMISE that this will be my last mention of Stevie Nicks for, well, about a day. A "reader" asked me "What song is played BEFORE Stevie's concert starts?" This song let's the crowd know that Stevie is coming out. They all go crazy. Anyhoo, HERE is the answer to your question... The video for the song also INCLUDES Stevie Nicks... Take a look...



I hope you ALL have a GR-EAT Thursday.

Hugs -

Boston - Part Two


HEY KIDS! How are YOU today? "We" hope YOU are doing fine.

You know how we like to acknowledge birthdays here (when we remember them) of our close friends, celebrities and total strangers? We missed one (heads here at the "Corner" are going to roll - this one is big). Yesterday was Mick Fleetwood's birthday! Mick turned 61. Happy birthday Mick! (Yes, I have met him too - he is super nice.) THANKS to "Princess II" for reminding me. She isn't even a fan for Pete's sake. (Do you ever wonder who "Pete" is or where that expression originated? Someone should research that.)

Here is a picture I don't get tired of (although I can't pull off concert tee-shirts and don't normally wear them)... Here I am with the birthday guy, Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, and Lindsey Buckingham (he's cropped out a little bit).


Okay, I am sure you are all on the edge of your seats, pondering the questions posed in yesterday's post. Are you ready for the answers? Here we go... Did "Kev" (yes, that's me) have the BEST seat in the house for Stevie Nicks' concert on Sunday night? The answer is... YES! You never know how the seats will be placed in front of the stage, but lucky for me, Row A, Section 2, Seat 20 was the exact seat in front of Stevie's microphone on Sunday night. I was literally just feet from her for the entire show! I swear on someones grave that she saw me and sang "Landslide" to me. I'm not even making that up. (My best ex-BFF, Steve, was a few seats down.) It's a great feeling knowing that in a crowd of THOUSANDS, I had the BEST seat for the show. It's happened before but it is still always just very fun. Next question... Did "Kev" (again, annoying reference to myself) get to shake Stevie's hand during the "edge walk?" Why yes, yes he did. Some dirty pig bastard (not a term of endearment this time) was trying to give Stevie a HIDEOUS painting that was about 3' X 3' WHILST Stevie was trying to shake my hands. The woman put the painting (did I mention it was HIDEOUS) in front of my face. Why would she think Stevie would want such trash? It was supposed to be a portrait of Stevie but was WAY off mark (looked like Bette Midler). Embarrassing, really. Stevie, however, moved the painting, and proceeded to take both of my hands and danced with me momentarily. It was awesome. I love her. (Then I told that woman "Ha-ha, Stevie didn't want your painting.") Next question... Did Stevie dedicate "Landslide" to her #1 fan (again, that's me). Why no, no she didn't. (Let's not get crazy here.) All in all, it was a GREAT concert. The crowd was fun and we (this time I actually mean more than myself) met some new "friends." We looked for "Guy In Wheel Chair From Boston" (we were certain he would be at his hometown show, but we could not find him. Perhaps he died? I don't know.) Anyhoo, we met "Funny Lesbian Who Called Me Dirty Pig Bastard" (she was hysterical and actually LOVED us) and "Stringy Hair Girl Who Is Sitting In My Seat" (I told her she better move or I would pull it. You see, the show hadn't actually started yet, but I wanted to sit in my front row, center, right-in-front-of-the microphone seat as long as possible but this woman was sitting in it! Imagine my panic and disdain. I cut my eyes at her from a few feet away several times. The non-verbal queues weren't working. She didn't get it. Steve told me to calm down, have a drink and that he was certain she would move before the opening act (which was Mandy Moore) began. I wasn't so hopeful so I marched over to her and said, "You know that's not your seat, right? I don't want to have to pull your hair." YES, that is exactly what I said... Ask Steve - he was mortified. Anyways, she said, "Yes, my seat is right next to yours - I am just trying to give the man to my left some room." I said "Pheew." and "Great hair, by the way!" I thought, "Jesus Christ, I've already pissed off my neighbor and the show doesn't even start for about an hour..." (I just don't like people in my seat.)


Remember a few posts back I wrote, I mean, "stole" an article about the four year anniversary of the first same sex marriage in the United States? Well, although I did not get married over the weekend (believe me, I tried), we DID visit the "Old City Hall" in Cambridge where the FIRST gay couple exchanged vows (you remember them because, again, I JUST wrote about them. I mean, CNN just wrote about them). I didn't plan to visit this location but it was a stop on our tour and I thought it was a really neat co-inc-a-dink because, again, I just wrote about them (dammit, I mean CNN).

In short, if you get a chance, visit Boston. It's a beautiful city. I loved it. Here are some more pics (no, I did not take them - I don't own a camera...).



On a serious note (I do like to be serious sometimes), "our" friend and 5th grade teacher, Mr. D., lost his mother earlier this month. I don't think it's ever easy losing a loved one, so I was sorry to learn this news today. YOU are in our thoughts. While I did not meet or know Mrs. D., she produced an awfully great son... My condolences to you friend.

I would also like to tell my FAVORITE Grandmother that I hope she will be feeling better soon! She is a little under the weather (but is still able to make me laugh). HUGS and KISSES just for YOU. (For our newer readers, yes, my Grandmother reads this blog, "HOT Guys" and all. She's the coolest.)

That's IT for today folks! Please enjoy this song that I USED to play (poorly) on the piano. I love it and it played in my head all weekend... "This drifter's world goes round and round and I doubt that it's ever gonna stop..."

Much love -

Kevin

Boston - Part One


Welcome BACK you dirty pig bastards! (This is a new "term of endearment" I learned just yesterday! I love it!)

Okay, here's the "skinny"... It's late and I am tired. I came home from Boston late this afternoon just in time to catch Leslie Jordan's performance of "My Trip Down The Pink Carpet," (which was hysterical - buy the book/go see him when he comes to your town) so I am really only thinking about my bed right now BUT I have lots of stories to share with you about the weekend in Boston (one of my new favorite cities) with friends Steve and Carrie and, oh, um, Stevie Nicks, so you have to come back later in the week to read all about it! Did "Kev" have the "best" seat in the house AGAIN? Did "Kev" get to shake Stevie's hand AGAIN? Did Stevie dedicate "Landslide" to "Kev?" Did "Kev" take advantage of the same sex marriage laws in Massachusetts? Who was the flower girl? (You just might be surprised.) So many questions boys and girls... It's all very exciting stuff, so you have to come back for the answers later in the week! (I can hardly contain myself and I was there for all of it.)


The picture above is of my darling friend Carrie (whom I love - isn't she stunning), her husband and super nice guy, Dave, and ME at a great Tapas restaurant in their hometown outside of Boston. (Yes, I know that hat is too small for my head...)

Our "BFF," "Princess" is back in the country and all is right with the world again. "We'll" be expecting her pictures and stories soon.

Finally, the clip below was sent to me by a really sexy guy who thought YOU might enjoy it. Since "we" don't have a "Corner" pet name for him yet, "we'll" just refer to him as "really sexy guy." THANKS "really sexy guy" for sending the clip.

That's it! I am going to bed now! Have a GR-EAT week EVERYONE!

Love and hugs -

Sunday


It's SUNDAY! C'mon in you filthy red-faced booze bags! (For the newer readers, "we" mean no harm. "We" were told that people like to be addressed in this fashion!)

How are YOU? (Since I actually wrote this on, um, last Tuesday... I can't tell you yet about the great time I am having in Boston with Carrie as well as my first ex BF, Steve, who is in the FRONT ROW CENTER tonight with me for STEVIE NICKS. I can only hope he ditched that farting and snoring habit he used to have which was really the wedge that drove us apart. Wait, I think that was me...) Anyhoo, Steve and I are staying in the South End (i.e., gayborhood) of Boston and I am sure we are having a GR-EAT time (again, it's really Tuesday and I am not actually in Boston yet. I wonder how those daytime talk shows tape their shows in advance - it's so confusing! HELP ME OPRAH.) Anyhoo, if I don't get to shake Stevie's hand tonight during the "edge walk," I am going to throw a royal f-i-t, fit!

Cyndi Lauper turns 55 today!

Okay, I think that's all I have left to give today. Think of me (and Steve) tonight around 10:30 p.m. - that's when we should be shaking Stevie's hand and telling her we love her. (I hope I don't have to muscle any bitches out of my way, but I will...)

Enjoy YOUR Sunday and THANKS for stoppin' in!

Hugs (not scrugs) -

Songs That Make Me Cry


C'mon in EVERYONE! (Even you!)

How are YOU on this Saturday? "We" hope YOU (even you) are f-i-n-e, fine!

"Kev" (third person reference to myself... or is that second person, I don't know...) is in Boston, seeing the sites, looking forward to Stevie Nicks' concert tomorrow night, AND visiting with the original Princess (and former piano teacher), Carrie! Now when I mention "piano teacher," you might envision an elderly woman with blue hair. Let me correct this visual for you... Carrie is young and h-o-t, HOT! Although I like David Beckham (and yesterday's HOT Guy, Rusty Joiner) a LOT... I was always a little nervous in Carrie's presence because she is just that gorgeous.

Next, we would like to say "WELCOMA HOMA" (my attempt at speaking/writing Italian) to my BFF, "Princess." (I know, it's confusing... I called Carrie and my BFF "Princess" never realizing this blog would bring them together or that I would be found out. We worked it out though - there can never be too many Princesses if you ask me). Anyhoo, "we" missed you! I'm catching a flight as soon as I can to hear all about your holiday at the sea.

Today is Prince William's 26th birthday. I used to think he was "all that" but now I like Prince Harry. Prince Harry looks a little wild, doesn't he? I always admired people who got into trouble (not serious/felony sort of trouble). I followed the rules and probably didn't have as much fun.

Okay, I mentioned previously that I had seen "Mamma Mia" at the Fox Theatre here in Atlanta a couple of weeks ago. Loved it. Love ABBA. Anyhoo, one of the songs makes me really sad and I don't know why? I don't even know what they are singing about? The song is called "Chiquitita," which sounds like a cat's name to me. Take a listen and let me know what you think...



Don't you love the big fake snowman? These people are from Switzerland for Pete's sake. (BTW, who is Pete?)

Here's another one that made me cry when I was young... It's about a girl who dies and her horse that gets lost in a blizzard, when there came a killing frost. Let's see if you remember it.



This song, about a horse with no name, always depressed me. (Why not give the horse a name?) Anyhoo, I hated it.



Can't people write happy songs instead of songs that make me cry?

I hope YOU enjoy the rest of your day! THANKS for reading this silly little blog.

XOXO -

Friday's HOT Guy...


IT'S FRIDAY BITCHES!

Welcome back! "We're" glad you're here.

Okay, I am really out of town (in Boston) but through the wizardry of the Google blog, I was able to write this BEFORE I left so YOU wouldn't be left without a post today. As a matter of fact, anything you see here until Tuesday will have been created in ADVANCE. (Isn't that nice?) Like a good gay, I am always prepared.

A whole slew of celebrities were born on this day... If you see Nicole Kidman, John Goodman, Lionel Richie, Anne Murray (I loved that song, "Snowbird" that she sang, didn't you?), Brian Wilson, Martin Landau and Errol Flynn, say "HAPPY BIRTHDAY BITCHES" because they were all born on the 20th of June.

In the news... A California woman is suing Victoria's Secret for what she calls a "defective" thong. Apparently, when this heifer tried on the "decorative" thong (do people try on thongs before they buy them?) a sequin flew off and hit her in the eye, causing injury. As my Grandmother always cays, "For cry eye!"

"We" mentioned this before but... Emmy-award winning actor and little funny man, Leslie Jordan, will be in Atlanta this weekend! Leslie will be autographing his book, "My Trip Down The Pink Carpet," at "Outwrite" tomorrow night. Leslie will be reading from the book at the 14th Street Playhouse on Sunday and Monday. If I hadn't already met him (remember, he called my friend "Princess" on my cell phone the night of my 40th birthday) I would ask one of you to take my book to "Outwrite," wait in the long line and have him sign it for me. He's hysterical. For those of you going to the show, ENJOY!

Now that I have lost a few pounds... I am happy to report that I will be running next weekend's "Pride Run" here in Atlanta. The run starts and ends at Ansley Mall. My new SNFF (that's a new acronym I made up which stands for "Stevie Nicks Friend Forever") has said I can join him in the run. If you are here in Atlanta, YOU should run too! (It'll be s-w-e-l-l.) Google "Pride Run Atlanta 2008" for details (because I am too lazy to do it for you).

Okay, now on to the task at hand. Our "HOT Guy..." You've seen him here many times before (because he is one of my favorites...). He is actor, model, Georgia native, fitness guy - RUSTY JOINER. I love him. I email him on a regular basis (telling him I love him). He replied once. Asked me to stop emailing him.

That's ALL for today kids - I hope YOU have a GR-EAT weekend doing the things YOU enjoy doing.

Much love -

ME!





Finally...

Riskay


This video, posted here two other times, STILL cracks me up (please don't judge me...). You might not want to watch this at the office, classroom, parish/your prayer group, etc.. (I don't know where you bitches are reading this at...) It's naughty (and not suitable for children).

Here's "Riskay"...



How is EVERYONE on this Thursday? "We" hope YOU are doing just great. As you saw yesterday, new David Beckham ads for Armani Emporium underwear are hitting the streets. Additional photos were unveiled in San Francisco last night!

American Idol's crazy girl, Paula Abdul, is 46 today. She's nuts but I love THIS video...



Okay, I'm leaving town in the morning so I gotta say adios, arrivederci, basically just goodbye for now!

"We" will be BACK tomorrow though, so stop in!

XOXO -

All "we" (okay, we're back to third person) can say is... WOW. Wanted to share this photo of David Beckham.

Hope you are all having a GR-EAT day!

Seven Wonders


Wut up? How is EVERYONE tonight? I am s-w-e-l-l, swell! I am trying to phase out the "we" and third person references to myself. Gets old and is a bit immaturish (which is sort of like me anyway). Don't worry - I'm still calling you BITCHES (that never gets old).

I don't know what is going on in the world, so I am going to talk (write) about my favorite topic again, ME! (I will try to relate it to you, so you get some value out of your visit here. If nothing else, I hope you enjoy the pretty picture...)

Anyhoo, I met a new neighbor last weekend who is as BIG a Stevie Nicks fan as I am! I spotted him in the lobby wearing his "the boots are back" Stevie Nicks tee (see last Wednesday's post) and felt compelled to speak to him. I learned that he has practiced the same ritual I have practiced for YEARS. He mentioned that whenever he buys a new car or moves into a new home, the first song he plays is a Stevie Nicks song. Not only do I do this as well (honest engine), when I get on a plane, I also listen to the same Stevie Nicks song that I have loved for years, which is "Seven Wonders" (I always thought it was a song about traveling to exciting places... "If I live to see the seven wonders, I'll make a path to the rainbow's end. I'll never live to match the beauty again"). Here's where I relate this back to YOU... Does anyone else practice this ritual? Why, as humans, do we have rituals? What purpose do they serve? Certainly, they hold meaning for us. (I don't have the answer, but perhaps YOU do!)

Okay, that's all I have to write about tonight. I hope YOU have a GR-EAT... HUMP DAY!

Hugs not thugs -

"Kev"



As an aside... If you watched the video, you heard Stevie sing the lyric, "You touched my hand, all the way down to Emmeline." Stevie co-wrote this song with Sandy Stewart who wrote the lyric, "You touched my hand, all the way down you held the line." Stevie didn't understand that and thought Sandy wrote, "all the way down to Emmeline." Note - there is no place in the world - city, state, continent, province, etc..., etc... named "Emmeline." (I tried to visit there.) And don't even get me started on the seven wonders. They change all of the time. My new weight loss is one of them, as well as the guy photod above though, I am sure!)

Massachusetts


4, 3, 2, 1...

Say hello to the girl that I am. You're gonna have to see through my perspective. I need to make mistakes just to learn who I am. I don't wanna be so damn protected.

- Britney Spears, "Overprotected"

Okay, I have nothing else to write about tonight, so I thought I would simply quote lyrics to what's playing on my iPod right now. Britney's so "deep," isn't she? (What's playing on YOUR iPod right now?)

Welcome BACK everyone (except you) (I never get tired of writing that. I chuckle EVERY time...) It's Monday again folks.

Since I have nothing to write about tonight (except my excitement of seeing Stevie Nicks this coming weekend), I thought I would cut and paste, you know "steal," this article from CNN about gay marriage in Massachusetts (which is where I am seeing Stevie Nicks this weekend - HEY, maybe I'll get married while I am there!).

Enjoy the article, watch this video (it's what I am listening to now) and come back soon...



Four years ago Massachusetts became the first state to allow same-sex couples to marry. Since then, more than 10,000 gay and lesbian couples have exchanged vows in the state.

David Wilson and Rob Compton, of Massachusetts, were among first same-sex couples to marry in 2004.

David Wilson and Rob Compton were among the first to say, "I do." The impact, they say, has been huge. Wilson says it was the switch from partner to husband that made a difference.

"Just using the word husband brings a level of confidence that helps say to the person we're talking with we have a right to be together, we are a couple and we love each other," Wilson says.

Wilson and Compton chose to keep their own surnames, but they say the need to define or justify their relationship is gone -- everyone understands what being married means.

Initially, there was a rush to the altar in Massachusetts.

In the six months after May 17, 2004, when Massachusetts began issuing marriage licenses for gay and lesbian couples, an estimated 6,100 same-sex couples married. They now average less than 1,000 a year, according to MassEquality.org, a grassroots organization working to help gay and lesbian couples achieve equality.

Having the same rights as heterosexual couples means the same issues -- like divorce. So far, at least 48 same-sex divorces have been reported. Same-sex divorces are hard to track because they are recorded by the last names of the parties involved, without reference to gender, according to Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, a leading gay rights organization.

There have been several attempts to stop same-sex marriage in Massachusetts since the state made it legal. The most recent attempt was in 2007, when a proposed amendment to ban such unions was defeated.

Massachusetts State Rep. Paul Loscocco, a Republican, was one of several dozen lawmakers who changed their minds on the vote, deciding to vote against a ban. The change, he says, is reflective of society at large.

"I can't tell you how many calls I got from people saying, 'I called you before and now my grandson is gay -- now they're a couple -- now I've changed my mind and I want you to vote the other way,' " says Loscocco.

Groups opposed to same-sex marriage said their fight, though less visible, remains strong.

"It has not gone away in hearts and minds of people, particularly parents," said Kris Mineau, president of the Massachusetts Family Institute.

"The costs to family, children and culture are too great to concede this battle to those who would see marriage and family redefined to the point of irrelevancy," the group says on its Web site.

For Wilson and Compton, legalization and wider acceptance means they're finally able to reap the same benefits of heterosexual married couples, such as hospital visitation rights. Compton was able to exercise his rights recently when he was in Rhode Island for a conference and needed emergency surgery for a kidney stone.

Four years ago Massachusetts became the first state to allow same-sex couples to marry. Since then, more than 10,000 gay and lesbian couples have exchanged vows in the state.

David Wilson and Rob Compton, of Massachusetts, were among first same-sex couples to marry in 2004.

David Wilson and Rob Compton were among the first to say, "I do." The impact, they say, has been huge. Wilson says it was the switch from partner to husband that made a difference.

"Just using the word husband brings a level of confidence that helps say to the person we're talking with we have a right to be together, we are a couple and we love each other," Wilson says.

Wilson and Compton chose to keep their own surnames, but they say the need to define or justify their relationship is gone -- everyone understands what being married means.

Initially, there was a rush to the altar in Massachusetts.

In the six months after May 17, 2004, when Massachusetts began issuing marriage licenses for gay and lesbian couples, an estimated 6,100 same-sex couples married. They now average less than 1,000 a year, according to MassEquality.org, a grassroots organization working to help gay and lesbian couples achieve equality. Watch: David and Rob talk about what has changed »

Having the same rights as heterosexual couples means the same issues -- like divorce. So far, at least 48 same-sex divorces have been reported. Same-sex divorces are hard to track because they are recorded by the last names of the parties involved, without reference to gender, according to Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, a leading gay rights organization.

Compton was able to exercise his rights recently when he was in Rhode Island for a conference and needed emergency surgery for a kidney stone.

"I said, 'Well my husband will be coming,' and you know they didn't even blink. They just smiled and they knew I was from Massachusetts and didn't say anything," recalls Compton.

Other benefits include the possibility of obtaining health insurance through a spouse's work and the right to file joint state tax returns, transfer property, automatically inherit shared assets and make medical decisions for a spouse.

Fears that Massachusetts might become a destination for same-sex marriage for the rest of the country were put to rest when then-Gov. Mitt Romney dusted off a 1913 statute barring marriage in the commonwealth if a couple's home state did not recognize the union.

But it's a different story in California, where marriage benefits will follow same-sex couples to wherever they settle. Wilson and Compton plan to be in California to celebrate, as the state on Monday becomes the second in the country to allow same-sex matrimony.

Still, until same-sex marriage receives federal recognition, Wilson and Compton say, the unions will remain second-class marriages.

"We've begun the process, California is second and as all of these couples go back to their home states, they want those same benefits. They're going to take them back to those states and absolutely they will ask for those rights," says Wilson.

"I see it as a building block and eventually we will see this get to the federal level."

Nick Adams

Okay, so you want to see pics of "Kev" after the 17 pound weight loss? Here they are... It's really incredible what eating right and living a clean life can do for your appearance. (You can even re-grow your hair!)



Here I am with Mario Lopez. We're both starring in "A Chorus Line" on Broadway...



Oh, alright... So this is REALLY model/actor Nick Adams! The new bod of my favorite underwear brand - 2(X)ist. Talk on the town says Nick and Mario are feuding because Mario lost the 2(X)ist ad campaign to Nick, the younger/fresh face. The underwear company thought Mario was too old. Too old? I think he's like 30, isn't he? I have to admit, while many of YOU love Mario, he doesn't "do it" for me.

Happy Father's Day to any fathers that might read this (although I don't think there are any).

Okay, that's going to be IT for today kids. Kevie's gotta run (literally!).

Enjoy your day and week.

Le ver mañana!

YOU Can Do It!


Recepción, Bienvenue, Willkommen, Benvenuto, Добро пожаловать and Boa vinda. WHAT does all of this mean? Simply put, it means WELCOME!

How are you friend (and total stranger)? "We" (always and forever just me) hope YOU are having a GR-EAT weekend.

Many of YOU are traveling to fun and exciting places this summer. "We" want to see YOUR pictures, so send them "our" way.

Today's pictures are from my dear friends "Kitten," "Tiger," and "L'il Kitty." They recently visited Disneyland in California and had a WONDERFUL time. (Face paint - I am SO jealous!) The pictures bring a smile to my face. I love these people... (THANKS for sending the photos!)

My other good friend, and ex-BFF (boyfriend forever), Steve, called last night from St. Louis after shaking hands with, you got it, STEVIE NICKS. I told that bitch (Steve) not to tell me if he got to shake her hand (of course I am jealous), so I don't know why he called me? Honestly, Steve and I have a little tradition... we usually go to the shows together (as we did when we were a couple) but if we can't go together, we call one another during the shows that we are at. I got to listen to "If Anyone Falls In Love" and the start of "Landslide" last night before the phone cut out. Steve had the nerve to take the guy he's been in a relationship with now for about 10 years, who is super nice/I love him, but that's besides the point, over me. All kidding aside, I am glad you both enjoyed the show.

What else, what else? "WE" heard from our dearest friend, "Princess" today via email. "Princess" and about 20 of her relatives/famiglia are staying in the village in Italy where her grandparents are from. "Princess" and I don't normally go for two weeks without communicating (it's been tough) but they are all having a GR-EAT time and "we" (me) will post her pictures when she returns!

Next week, "Kev" will be in Boston visiting with the "original" Princess, my favorite piano teacher Carrie (and her family)! She's the bomb. I am excited to see her and her family (as well as Boston)!


I mentioned in a prior post that I am losing weight (YAY!). I am now down 17 pounds (which is about half way to my overall goal of losing 40 pounds). I have been reluctant to really discuss this here (I DON'T want to be annoying about it and I don't want to have to report 6 months from now that I have gained it all back) but several people have asked what I am doing/what has worked for me. For me, seeing an unhealthy artery brimming with fat/cholesterol was effective. I tried to find a photo to give you an idea of what this looks like, but none of the photos I found looked as bad as what I saw in real life, although a clogged artery looks much like the popular snack food "Combos." As you can see from the picture above, how can any blood be pumped through all of that processed cheese? When I look at food now, I think of (or see) that artery. I was also having chest pains and had high blood pressure which prompted the change. In short, I have modified what I eat. I am not on a diet (I hate that word/concept) but have replaced all of the bad foods I love to eat with good foods I am learning to love to eat. Do I miss chocolate cake? Most certainly. Pizza? My long-lost friend. Peanut butter pie? My kryptonite - any of my "lovers" should have been as good. Anyhoo, I watch the calories I eat and the amount of sodium I consume. Sodium isn't good for you and makes you retain weight but it's in most everything we eat. You should have no more than 2,400 mgs of sodium each day. I try to keep my sodium to under 1,000 mgs per day and drink a lot of water, which filters out the sodium in your system. I still drink wine but anything else I drink is water. I eat about 1,200 calories a day (and I do feel hungry at times), but for the most part I feel full. Foods like almonds, apples and beans make you feel full and are all good for you. I'm also embracing the young girl inside of me that wants to go to the prom with the team's star quarterback (a dream that still works for me). I also walk in the park every day. I chart my course by following the "hottest" guy I see until the next "hottest" guy comes along and then I follow him. This process continues until my pedometer tells me I have made it 5 miles. The young (straight) couple next door has been walking with me and they indulge me by following this method. They let me lead. (This morning I knocked on their door, ready to walk, and we'll call him Billy, said "Isn't it too early for "hot guys?" I told him it is NEVER too early for "hot guys.") Let's face it, being able to tie my shoe without losing my breath is fun and the boys (as in old gay trolls in Atlanta) are noticing the change too! Good luck in YOUR healthy endeavors. It isn't easy. I know. But YOU can do it. Not you, (you aren't doing anything right, you are going to fail) but YOU can!

Okay kids - I hope YOU have a GR-EAT Saturday!

Hearts -

"Kev"






Finally... THIS ABBA song won't stop playing in my head (you might remember that Madonna used this in her song "Hung Up.")

Friday's HOT Guy...


Welcome BACK sons-of-bitches! (Also a term of endearment, honest...)

It is FRIDAY! What a week this has been, eh?

Last night "Kev" (ME!) was in the 6th row center (with friend) for "Mamma Mia" at the Fabulous Fox Theatre. (It really is a stunning theatre.) I just love the musical and ABBA, don't you? Did you know that "Mamma Mia" has been seen by more than 30 million people in 160 cities and 8 languages around the world! I actually saw "Mamma Mia" twice whilst on "hols" (vacation) in London. You may know that the theatrical version, starring Meryl Streep, hits theatres July 17th! (Probably won't be as fun as the live version, but I'll go see it.) Anyhoo, the show at The Fox runs through Sunday. Good (and affordable) seats can be found on Craigslist. (I just checked.)

Stevie Nicks performs in St. Louis tonight. I won't be there so I don't care to talk further about it. (That's just my way.) I also WON'T be in Chicago tomorrow. As I have mentioned lately, being "Kev" doesn't come cheap. My check book is looking like a sudoku puzzle, no lie. I WILL, however, see Stevie again next week in Boston. Stevie and the entire Fleetwood Macs will go into the studio in October to begin recording their (most likely last) record. A tour will follow next year. Stevie is also working with Steven Spielberg to bring "Rhainnon," the mythical witch in the song of the same name, to the BIG SCREEN.

What else? Ryan Phillipe and Reese Witherspoon are officially divorced. Sad, right?

Leslie Jordan has a new book titled, "My Trip Down The Pink Carpet." It's hysterical and tragic (just like life, right?). Anyways, Leslie will be here in Atlanta next week performing his one man show of the same name AND he will be signing his book at "Outwrite." Read the book/see his show (and then let "us" know your thoughts).

Okay bitches, I was out late last night and I am tired. Today's HOT Guy is actor Jason Bateman. I love him. He is married to Paul Anka's daughter, Amanda. (I learned that from reading Leslie's book...) I couldn't find any nude, shirtless pics of Jason though. His face shots will have to do.

Have a GR-EAT Friday night.

Hugs (not drugs) -

"Kev"

Gold Dust Girl


WELCOME BACK BITCHES!

Stevie Nicks' summer tour stopped in Atlanta (Alpharetta) last night and "Kev" was 4th row center for the show! What can I say? She was amazing! While I did not get to shake Stevie's hand last night (both of my friends in the 2nd row did though), she did wave to me (after my incessant waving to her). Cameras were confiscated at the gate (they were filming) so I was not able to get pictures from the show. Plus, I don't own a camera. (The photo above was taken last week in Hollywood, Florida). Stevie opened with my FAVORITE song, "Stand Back." It's about not being noticed or being the object of anyone's affection (story of my life) but then, the one who shuns you, realizes their mistake and it's too late. ("So I walked on down the line away from you.") That's my Stevie Nicks' lyric lesson for tonight. It's really a sad song, but great to dance to. I have noted in my last will and testament that I would like this song played at my memorial. Prop me up for it. Stevie also performed her classic hits including, "Rhiannon," "Gold Dust Woman," "Dreams," "Outside The Rain," "If Anyone Falls," and "Edge of Seventeen" to name a few. Anyhoo, the show was GR-EAT. There were several other people at the show whom I have met over the years and it was good to see them as well. "Cowgirl" was there. "Guy in wheel chair from Boston" was there. "Won't stop singing over the band" was there. "Thinks she's Stevie Nicks" was there. "Cries all night" was there. "Another one who thinks she's Stevie Nicks" was there and finally, "Lady who needs deodorant" was there. (I'm "tight" with these people.) At one point during the "Edge Walk," a group of them were yelling "Kevin" (that's me), wanting me to join them at the edge of the stage. I was touched, really. I ignored them. (I am viewed as a very serious fan, or "Gold Dust Girl," among the regulars, but you should know that by now. I am a micro celebrity at these shows, no lie.) I do get tired of the basic questions that I am always asked at the concerts like, "How old is Stevie? Is she married? Does she have children?" I told that novice little girl to stop talking to me. I'm a Gold Dust Girl. Then I said, "Would you like a beer?" I am of course, kidding, although the part about the beer and being a Gold Dust Girl is true. (I answered that Hannah Montana wannabes questions - "Turned 60 on May 26th," "One loveless marriage of convenience for 4 months to her deceased best friend's husband for the purpose of raising Matthew, who she is now putting through college at Georgia Tech" and "No. No natural children. Doesn't like 'em.") Anyways, she was adorable in her "The Boots Are Back" Stevie Nicks tee-shirt. I told her that I almost wore that same shirt to the show (which is true) but it looks best on a young girl such as herself. She reminded me that I am a Gold Dust Girl. Hysterical. I love little girls. (Does that sound perverted?)


I could not find any YouTube clips of last night's show but perhaps they will appear later in the week.

"Kev" may be in Chicago THIS Saturday for Stevie's show at Northerly Island! (Keep your fingers crossed!)

Our friend, "Sar," (the smartest friend I have) sent THIS clip. It's spot on.



Okay, I am very tired tonight.

I hope YOU have a GR-EAT Thursday! (There will be no post tomorrow since I will be at "Mamma Mia," but stop back on Friday, would ya?)

Much love, "Stand Back," yadda, yadda, yadda -

D-A-R-L-I-N-G, Darling.


Hi-dee-ho there! (That means WELCOME BACK!)

How is EVERYONE today? "WE" hope YOU are fine.

"We" have absolutely no idea what is going on in the world EXCEPT that, you guessed it, STEVIE NICKS will be here in Atlanta tomorrow night. "We" will write all about her show later in the week.

Isn't the picture above just d-a-r-l-i-n-g, darling? This cute little siren (a real head turner if you ask me) is my dear Grandma. My aunt sent this picture to me tonight and since it makes me smile, I thought I would share it here on the blog. My Grandma remains one of my very favorite people, ever. She's smart, fun and has the quickest wit of anyone I have ever met. I am certain she would be one of your favorites too (if you met her).

Here's a card she sent me last week -


Okay, that's IT for tonight (I am t-i-r-e-d, tired). I hope YOU have a GR-EAT Tuesday!

Hugs -

Hillary


Welcome back EVERYONE. (Except you. You get out of here. Oh, alright, you can stay. But don't touch anything.)

This is a somewhat sad day here at the "Corner." As you know, Senator Hillary Clinton conceded the Democratic nomination for the White House to Senator Barack Obama. "We" were hoping Hillary would make it all the way. If you watched her speech today, you might agree that she handled herself with dignity and grace. Her intelligence, experience and conviction would have made her an excellent President. (I still don't know... should the word "president" be capitalized? Would someone let me know? We may need to use that word again in our posts and I hate fucking up.) Anyhoo, since Hillary is now supporting Barack Obama, "we" here at the "Corner" will support him too. "We've" re-posted the link to his official web site here at the right. Click on it, learn all about him and give him your money. "We" can't let John McCain win.

Here's the complete story from CNN. (Enjoy the hot guy above, Chaise Mooty, who has really gotten us through this difficult time, don't you think? I know he has absolutely nothing to do with Hillary and is probably not even a old enough to vote, but "we" like him.)

Love -

"Kev"

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Clinton formally ended her presidential campaign Saturday, saying to a packed house of thousands of supporters, "I will continue to stand strong with you every time, every place and every way that I can."

Sen. Hillary Cllinton thanks her supporters Saturday in a speech in which she endorsed Sen. Barack Obama.

She urged the cheering crowd to support Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic nominee, in his bid for the White House, saying she and supporters should "take our energy, our passion and our strength and do all we can to help elect Barack Obama ... I ask all of you to join me in working as hard for Barack Obama as you have for me."

Her endorsement was met with a scattering of boos and thumbs downs from the crowd at the National Building Museum in Washington.

Clinton's campaign said 6,000 people signed up on the New York senator's Web site to attend the speech.

Shortly after the speech, Obama released a statement praising Clinton's presidential run.

"Obviously, I am thrilled and honored to have Sen. Clinton's support. But more than that, I honor her today for the valiant and historic campaign she has run. She shattered barriers on behalf of my daughters and women everywhere, who now know that there are no limits to their dreams. And she inspired millions with her strength, courage and unyielding commitment to the cause of working Americans."

Obama watched the speech over the Internet, a campaign aide said. He put in a call to Clinton afterward but was told by a Clinton assistant that she was speaking with supporters.

During her speech, Clinton encouraged party unity, acknowledging that the fight has been hard, but saying "the Democratic Party is a family, and now it's time to restore the ties that bind us together."

"To all those who voted for me, my commitment to you is unyielding. You have inspired and touched me. You have humbled me with your commitment," she said. "Eighteen million of you from all walks of life -- women, and men, young and old, Latino and Asian, African-American and Caucasian, rich and poor, middle-class, gay and straight ... you have stood with me," she said.

Clinton has battled Obama in a primary season that stretched over nearly 18 months and 57 contests, culminating in Obama's winning the 2,118 delegates needed to clinch the party's nomination Tuesday.

A Clinton supporter told Gloria Borger, a CNN senior political analyst, shortly after the rousing speech that "this was the Hillary I worked with and supported. I suspect I'll never understand why this Hillary wasn't visible more often." Interactive: Analysts weigh in on Clinton's speech »

Clinton noted that both she and Obama had made history in their campaigns.

"When I was asked what it means to be a woman running for president, I always gave the same answer: I was proud to be running as a women, but I was running because I thought I'd be the best president," she said. "But I am a woman, and like millions of women, I know that there are still barriers and biases out there, often unconscious. And I want to build an America that respects and embraces the potential of every last one of us.

"We must make sure that women and men alike understand the struggles of their grandmothers and their mothers and that women enjoy equal pay and equal respect," she said. "Let us resolve and work toward achieving some very simple propositions: There are no acceptable limits and there are no acceptable prejudices in the 21st century in our country."

"I wish she was going on the ticket instead," one supporter said. "But I think she's making a good stand down. She's a lady. She's doing it well."

Clinton was accompanied by her husband, former President Clinton; their daughter, Chelsea; and her mother, Dorothy Rodham.

CNN contributor Donna Brazile, Al Gore's campaign manager in the 2000 election, offered a strong message for the Illinois senator.

"The work begins tomorrow for Sen. Obama to go out there, rally her supporters, earn their respect and win with them this November," she said.

Clinton said that as she spoke, America's 50th woman in space was orbiting Earth in the space shuttle Discovery. If the nation can put 50 women in space, it can launch a woman into the White House, she said to loud cheers.

"Although we weren't able to shatter this highest, hardest glass ceiling this time, thanks to you, it's got about 18 million cracks in it, and the light is shining through like never before," she said. Watch Clinton discuss the race »

"It is this belief and optimism that Sen. Obama and I share," Clinton said, "that has inspired so many millions of supporters to make their voices heard. So today, I am standing with Sen. Obama to say, 'Yes, we can.' "

A CNN poll released Friday shows that the party is divided after a primary season that stretched over nearly 18 months and 57 contests.

Sixty percent of Clinton supporters said they would vote for Obama, but 17 percent said they would vote for Sen. John McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee and Obama's rival in the general election. Nearly one-quarter, 22 percent, said they would not vote at all if Clinton were not the Democrats' nominee.

The poll's margin of error was plus or minus 7.5 percentage points. The poll was conducted after Obama clinched the Democratic nomination Tuesday. Watch Suzanne Malveaux talk about what's next for the candidates »

Democratic voters appear to like an Obama-Clinton ticket. A CNN poll released Friday suggested that nearly half of Democrats, 54 percent, would support a joint ticket, but 43 percent would oppose it. The poll's margin of error was plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.

The Clinton camp made it widely known that she would accept the No. 2 slot if it were offered, but the push was viewed as putting undue pressure on Obama to pick his former rival.

Face The Promise

We interrupt this Friday Hot Guy to bring you the following...



That's right folks - Stevie Nicks kicked off the summer leg of her tour last night in Biloxi, Miss-i-sissy covering Bob Seger's "Face The Promise." "We" would like to dedicate "Face The Promise" to our (okay, my) aunt, who's got "fever dreams, mighty plans, (she) needs a black top road and a wheel in her hand."

Stevie performed 14 songs, starting with "Outside The Rain," the song she always opened with for so many tours. Here is the set list:

Outside the Rain
Dreams
Stand Back
Sorcerer
If Anyone Falls in Love
Landslide
Crash into Me
Fall from Grace
Face the Promise
Gold Dust Woman
Rhiannon
Edge of Seventeen
Rock and Roll (encore)
Has Anyone Ever Written Anything for You (encore)

Here are the lyrics. Sing along!

I've been down in the delta
Working these fields
Breaking my back
I need a better deal

So long mississippi
So long Alabam
I want to face the promise
Of the promised land

I got the fever dreams
Mighty plans
I need a black top road
I need a wheel in my hands

So long Arizona
Ao long desert sands
I need to face the promise
Of the promised land

I've been tired of this river
These nothing nights
I'm just small towned out
I need city lights

So long allegheny
So long Olean
I need to face the promise
of the promised land

I need a world of change
I need a brand new space
I need an El Dorado
That's go to be some place

There's a line inside
I think I've crossed
You better watch out now
I'm gonna be my own boss

So long Massachusetts
So long Birmingham
I need to face the promise
Of the promised land

So long North Dakota
You must understand
I need to face the promise
Of the promised land

Face the promise (x4)

-Bob Seger

Okay, I got stuff to do today so come back later in the weekend, would ya?

Hugs and love -

Say You Will


Hello bitches!

I am very excited to share the attached YouTube video with you. If you have read the "Corner" since inception, than you know that "Kev" has been lucky enough to meet Stevie Nicks (as in talk with her) on 5 occasions at concerts benefiting the Arizona Heart Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. Kev's name appears on the plaque that you will see when you get to 1:37 in the clip below. The center was recently dedicated by Stevie (which you will see) and Kev was invited to this ceremony but could not attend. Anyhoo, the clip is very exciting to me.



Stevie is performing in Biloxi, MS this evening and "we're" waiting up to read the reviews...

"We" hope YOU have a GR-EAT Friday.

Hearts, hugs and love -

"Kev"

This song is for... YOU! (Okay, I am lying. It isn't really for YOU, it's for you. You know who you are. Although I hope YOU, as in YOU, enjoy it too.)

That's Amore


Hey EVERYONE! Welcome back to the "Corner!" First up... How are YOU? Good, now let's dive into it.


Did everyone like Chaise Mooty, the guy featured here on Sunday? GREAT because "we" have LOTS more pictures of this, um, 19-year-old model from Texas. Yes, I said it. He is only 19. He's like Zac Efron's age. Crazy, isn't it? Anyhoo, enjoy some more pictures of him (and try not to remember that he could be your son, nephew, student, the kid next door, etc.).


What else, what else? OH, now hold on to your seats, Stevie Nicks will be here in Atlanta in less than one week! EXCITED? Undoubtedly.

"We" would like to wish a fond buon viaggio to "Princess" and her famiglia. The entire gruppo isa headed to a Italia for a nice long vacanza by da sea. "Wesa" loves you. "Wesa" missa yousa already. (Italian is really not that hard. I taught myself.)


My boyfriend, Anderson Cooper, is 41 today.

Okay, you know how pregnant women don't like to divulge that they're pregnant until after their first trimester? Tonight I'm that pregnant lady, ready to sing like a canary, spill it, tell you all the details, etc.. Info I have been withholding until now! (Some of you know this, others won't care.) Anyhoo, there is a little less of "Kev" to love (or hate - your choice). As of today, 15 pounds less! I won't bore you with last month's health scare that prompted the change, but today I reached the weight I claim to be on my online "dating" (i.e., Craigslist) profile. I thought now would be an okay time to mention it. For the record, I have always secretly loathed those people that tout their fitness achievements (i.e., weight loss) because, let's face it, losing weight is not easy and no one likes a braggart. So, for the record, I am not gloating or shouting "Look at ME." Just mentioning it. That's my news. I am, however, still bald.

Okay, it is almost MIDNIGHT here which means I have to call it a night. I hope you ALL have a GR-EAT HUMP Day!

Love, hugs and kisses -

"Kev"
