So, last week during our show at the Ruby Room, I was asked what was the worse thing (for me) about 2010. My answer was the loss of friendships. Well, that got me to thinking, something this time of year often does.
On my way home from the show, I started to think about the people in my life and the friends I have. I have to admit I have some pretty amazing friends. It almost makes me feel old knowing there are some like Jim and Joe who have been in my life for 30 years. They are like my “gay dads.” Even more impressive is that they have been together in a relationship for almost 32 years. Then, there is Delores who has been a great friend for almost 25 years who I still talk to almost every day. And, Cristina Monet, well we’ve been friends for about 20 years. So friendships mean a lot to me. I’ve also found through the years that some great people have come into my life and many remarkable friendships were formed creating some really wonderful memories.

So, the HSSS gang is always after me to write this blog thing. I say, “really what is a blog?” The word blog seems scary, intimating a little to be honest. It’s not as though I don’t read blogs because I do, quite a few of them. I find some of them entertaining, others informative and controversial. In fact, the last one I wrote caused quite the stir. Others I find rather boring, even though I still read them. But, for whatever reason, I can’t get my mind wrapped around the word “blog.” Read More
Well, who would have thought that lil’ ole me could have ruffled so many large, peacock-like feathers. I’ve been incredibly blessed today by the amazing outpouring of kindness and support by so many people. I truly feel loved. It’s overwhelming. I guess you like me. You really, really like me!
Okay, enough of that…moving on.
One of the greatest things in my life is that I’ve been allowed to make people laugh here in San Diego for more than two decades (shocking, I know, especially since I’m only in my mid-twenties.) As well, being involved in so many organizations and activities has been a main highlight. I not only help make a difference – be it raising money or awareness – I get to do it by having fun and making those around me happy and entertained.
I am so excited! About what, you ask? Well, I’m excited how a conversation on wanting to do a “pod cast” just a few months ago, turned into a recorded “video cast” then quickly evolved into the now “web cast” that is streamed live online from this very site every week. And, let me tell you, it’s a blast to do.
I am excited that I had that conversation with Aaron and that he not only believed in the idea, he challenged me to want to make it GREAT. I am really excited that he is my partner in this venture…I truly couldn’t have asked for a better co-host.
I am excited that we found a great team to join us – Joe and Bo – who selflessly give of their time and energy to help make this vision come true each and every webcast.
