Bonding with High-Level Executives

My boss will be out of the office and unavailable for a while.

Just before she left today she told me that she had met with one of our top executives and that he spent 30 minutes asking her about me. Bottom line: I have to go bond with this executive and with yet another executive because they feel I am not “involved enough with their day-to-day business” and I need to “get into his head” and act more as an “advisor” — those are his words. My boss just relayed them to me. And I have to start dressing “better” — those are my boss’ words. Then she left.

This was not my day — but I have a feeling that the rest of the week might be filled with even worse days. Optimistic am I not?

Anyway, skipped the movie tonight. But I plan to go tomorrow night no matter what. I need to form strategic corporate strategies and kick some major ass. …or would that be kiss some major ass?

We haven’t gotten much snow this year, but I am not even enjoying the snow storm tonight. I am just worried about my job security now.

Babs Is A Focker!

I am all moist with excitement! Babs Streisand has signed to play Mrs. Focker in the sequel to the Ben Stiller/Robert DeNiro movie! Dustin Hoffman will play Mr. Focker. This is, like, total dream casting. ….tho, I still think Woody Allen would be an ideal leading man for Babs. Can’t wait!

I am forcing my brother to see “Dirty Dancing — Havana Nights” with me tomorrow night. He really has no choice. I am just making him. He made me see that Pro-longed Torture of the Christ — so now he must see a bad chick flick with me. I just can’t wait to watch that hot Mexican boy dance! I figure Roy can watch the blonde girl dance. I figure that the movie will suck, but I know I will enjoy the dancing and the music. I will write a full report on my movie blog!

I am currently having a Robbie Williams issue. I really hated his last CD upon its release. So much so that I gave the CD away. Now, a year later I see a Canadian imported DVD of his last summer’s UK tour where he performs all of the songs that were on that CD which I hated. Well, now I LOVE every song on the stupid CD and had to re-purchase it. Oh well. I wonder why I hated it the first time round, but now love it. Go figure. Fickle finger of music fate, I guess.

Well, time to go check on my pal, Thomas, on his blog and the further adventures of Tim on his. Karl had a brain fart on his newly established blog — but it sounds much worse than it actually is. I should be creating links to Thomas, Tim and Karl — but I am just too tired with the announcement of a new Barbra movie and the links are to your left. Go visit them! You can’t visit Jen at What’s Brewing because she is taking a break as she gets thru tax season at our office. Send her positive vibes — tax season at an accounting firm is pretty damn scary. We’re almost done tho! Oh! I’ve discovered a way-cool blog site — be sure to stop by and visit Useless!Worthless!Inspid!

The Torture of the Christ

Ok —- I saw the Mel Gibson movie with my brother, Roy. He really hated it. I didn’t like it, but it wasn’t that bad. I have to say I don’t see the anti-semitism. I mean, if it is anti-semitic then so is Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar. …and, like, the Christian Bible. Anyway, there was nothing at all about the passion of the Christ — it was really just plain sadistic and really gross. We never see any passion beyond the fact that he stops on a snake that a demon/satan sends to him. He seemed fairly passionate about that. Oh, and Mr. Gibson reveals that Jesus invented the dining room table.

However, I should note (and this really upsets my brother) that I do think it was better than Martin Scorsese’s The Last Temptation of Christ — which I just hated. Not because I found it evil or anything — just because it was such a waste of great talent. I don’t expect much out of Mel Gibson. He utilized so many cliches of film making it made me cringe, but I was surprised he was able to make a movie — even if it is a MOR attempt. Still, Scorsese gets the prize for giving us the hottest Jesus. I mean, he hasn’t aged well — but back in 1988 Willem Dafoe made a really sexy Christ. …even on the cross he looked pretty.

OH! My Karl has started his own blog! I am so proud! I cannot wait to see him post his pictures of the dinners he creates. Pssst — they are always the same —- but I love him anyway!

Back From Newark!

Just got back from my biz trip to good ol Newark. Received lots of corporate training on various HR stuff. Not much fun, but it was nice to see some of my colleagues from across the country. …but tomorrow I have to go into work. ugh. Am tired and just wanna sleep for several days!

Sad News…

Just read that Spaulding Gray’s body was found in the East River in NYC. I guess he killed himself. So sad. I always enjoyed his performance pieces and once met him. …well, I walked into him when he was in Boston. I didn’t say anything because I am infamous for saying really stupid things when I meet celebrities. It is best that I just not say much. But if I had been able to say something intelligent I would have thanked him for being such a talented artist. His work generated so many interesting thoughts and ideas. Always seems that the most gifted are often the most tormented. Sad.

While on the topic of sad things, I am being sent to the Meadowlands office for the next 2 days for a fun-filled time of corporate training. So much fun —- and in such a glam place! ha! Oh well. I get back late Thursday night. Maybe I will have something fun to report when I return.

I have been thinking of creating another blog dedicated to writing reviews of the many movies I see. Anyone who knows me knows that I see a lot of movies. As an example I saw 3 this past weekend. Will probably see 3 more this coming weekend — not to mention all of the DVD’s I see. And, if you know me — you know I have opinions about all I see. Might be fun. The only concern I have is that I don’t seem to be posting to this blog as I used to, but am going to think about it. Maybe I will try to set up this weekend. Of course, last time my pal, Jen, did all the background work to get me up and running. And I don’t think I am much better tech-wise since I started this blog. Maybe Karl will help me! Karl? Are you there? Jen can’t help me — she is stuck in busy season hell!!!

My Evening With Billy Joel…

Karl, my boss and I attended a performance of MOVIN OUT — musical built around 26 of Billy Joel’s songs with choreography by Twala Tharpe. It was pretty cool and most enjoyable, but the cool thing was that Billy Joel and Twala were both there. Am not sure if I am spelling her name correctly. Anyway, Billy Joel got up on the stage and performed two songs! I am not a big fan of him or his music, but he was most impressive. I knew both of the songs he sang, but don’t know the titles of them. Oh, wait one was called You May Be Wrong But You May Be Right. …at least that was the chorus.

Anyway, a fun night!

Conversations on the Subway Platform

This evening before I decided to walk home instead of riding the subway, I was waiting on the platform and a homeless man wandered up to me and said, I am a professional fisherman, but need $11 to get back to my boat. Can you help me out?

I paused for a moment and notice his shoes and responded, If you are a professional fisherman, why are you wearing flip-flops and pajama bottoms? And why do you need $11 instead of $10 or even $12?

He paused and then said, You are an asshole. He turned and walked away.

Well, that pretty much sums up my day. Being asked stupid questions backed up by stupid information. …and then I respond in a manner perceived as that of an asshole. I don’t mean it. I am a nice guy. Really.

Oh! My love, Karl, discovered an awesome site today while he was ever so busy at work dealing with the major issues that come by his desk — but check it out. Like Karl, Betty rocks! We all must love her!

Baby’s Porn

Once a month when Karl is making his usual mail call to me as I stumble in from a rough day at work, he announces — Baby’s porn has arrived! He is, of course, referring to my latest issue of UNZIPPED magazine. I think I have mentioned it before. It is the Tiger Beat for the gay porn generation. A fan magazine for gay porn fans! You know, you get to find out what it was like the first time Jeff Stryker took it up the butt AND his favorite kind of wine for a romantic evening!

I just love this magazine. It is so wrong, but so very, very right. April’s issue features the best looking porn star I have seen since Joey Stefano! His name is Arpad Miklos –and UNZIPPED has penned him the Hunky HUNG-arian. Yes, Arpad is from Hungry, enjoys the ocean, guys who like to laugh, chocolate, techno music and guys who know how to bottom and take his huge –uh, gift.

Arpad’s gift is thicker than my wrist and about as long as my arm. Kind of scary to think about — but he is sooo cute! I will try to find a link so that you can see him! Well, for some reason the site has not been updated to show my new love, Arpad. But here is the link!

I wave my porn magazine high and proud! I rejoice in the promotion of porn stars as idols. …and the April issue has great articles entitled ELF LOVE and THE BUTT WRANGLER and DON’T BE A TIGHT ASS — TIME TESTED TIPS ON TOPPING A TOP!! You just have to love it all. Yes, Baby’s porn is a delight!

I have fallen twice today and have had sugar. And I suspect I may be having more as Karl is baking cookies.

Oh, if any of the above worries you — I do think I may have located a shrink. There are just far too many neurotics in this city and not enough shrinks to guide us! This has taken me forever!

Sending love across the Blogging Universe!
