It was Pride!

It’s time to dump all the shit that happened this past week into my blog.

And what a week it was! The first part of it was spent with Mac and Jaime. They have a new place not too far away from the old one. It’s not Apartment 69 anymore, but it’s a really nice house. They can’t wait to get settled in. (House warming party!)

On Friday, I met up with Heather at Pride. We were there for only a couple hours before we went to pick up Ben and all three of us went to see the Zebrahead show at Center Stage. Zebrahead rocked my face off. Not many people came, probably because The Casualties were playing at the Masquerade that same night, but it was a good show. The pit was alright, too. There was also this band called Stereosonic that played and they were really good. They had a song about how much Ashley Simpson sucks. I’ll support that!
After the show, we were so beat that we couldn’t make it back to Pride. So we came back to my place and had a Monty Python marathon.

The next day, Ben and I went to derby practice. We’re both getting better and trying to make it to practice every week. We went yesterday, too. I passed the time trial! Twenty laps in five minutes. Now, if I can only get pivoting down. Ayanna and Ish’s baby shower was after practice. It was great to see them. Ayanna looks like she’s about to pop.
Saturday night was my drag number with Jae at My Sister’s Room. We did great! I was topless, at one point, with pasties shaped like boy scout crosses. It was wrong. And it was great seeing all my friends who showed up or performed. Ben even came to support me.

On Sunday, I sweated on YP’s Pride parade float as Mr. YP 2007. Being on the float was fun, but waiting in the heat for the parade to start was where most of my time at Pride was spent.

Yet again, I was so exhausted after it was over that I just went home and recovered before I went to the all-star ARG bout. They played against the Rocky Mountain Fight Club girls and it was brutal! There were more penalties than points in that bout. I even got to go to the after party with Sam and not have to worry about getting home to work on projects. I didn’t even have to worry about dropping my dad’s car off because he gave me the best birthday present ever: his car. I’m still in shock. That’s my favorite car I’ve ever driven. It’s a 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid and I take care of that thing like it’s the Holy Grail. It’s my baby and will last me forever. I even learned how to drive in that car.

Yesterday was tough. Chris Benoi, Ben’s wrestling trainer and friend, died. They say that he committed suicide and murdered his wife and son. In Peachtree City, no less! He sounded like a really nice guy who wouldn’t do anything like that. It’s very strange. Ben was really shaken up.

Other than that stuff, my birthday is this Sunday! Come out to SkinTwo at WetBar on Saturday night to celebrate with me. I’ll be there at midnight.

Also, I’m trying to get rid of my couch. It’s too big for my apartment, but really comfy and in good condition. Anybody want a couch?
