You say that every year. I bet you have never once fucked outdoors.

How outdoor are we talking?

Like a blow job while driving thru a state forest? Or a secluded spot in said forest?

Dude, y'all late. Outdoor fucking started weeks ago down here judging by the arrest reports for indecent exposure.

You're in Houston. They're trying to get their outdoor fucking in before the heat and humidity mean that their junk mildews before the money shot.

I just won Portland. The guy at Voodoo Doughnuts liked my t-shirt so much he gave me a free doughnut.

If only they knew.

Today I went and rented myself a solo rehearsal room so I could mess around with playing the drums, because I've never really played the drums and I wanted to try. It was a lot of fun, and way tougher than it looks like.

Took our cat Fury* to the vet today for a checkup and vaccine booster. The vet said she was the picture of health. It's nice to have healthy kitty vet visits.

* Actually, her full name is Furiosa (although we rarely call her that at home), which kind of freaked out one of the Spanish-speaking vet assistants, who was amusingly worried about what a cat named that might be like (you get one guess what "furiosa" means in Spanish; it's a pretty close cognate). But she's actually a very sweet cat.

Scheduled to speak, and I am definitely going to go. (A few years back I attended for free by volunteering to be the person running the laptop for all the Powerpoint slides -- I just sent off an email trying to wheedle my way back into that freebie. :lol: )

I will have to try very hard to act normal around him and not clutch at the hem of his garment, or ask him to sign my boob, or anything.

He's used to it, and he's also super, super normal in person.

Radley is very nice and gracious in person. Ask him how his dogs are doing.

Out. They're going to be out. I assume they're getting corresponding tattoos as the twins are a bit young to start drinking.

My band spent ten hours in the recording studio this past Saturday, and although it was a long, exhausting day, we got four songs recorded, and even the rough mixes sound really good.
