O What A Night

My life has inevitably come to a somewhat grinding halt. The days now unfold like clockwork, much to my annoyance. So many things in my life have become so mundane, that I often find myself automatically finishing tasks before ever realizing when I had started them. I head to Starbucks in the morning and the woman at the counter automatically smiles and charges me and hands over a Double Chocolate Muffin, without even opening my mouth. I head downstairs for lunch to the food court, and the clerk glances up at me and screams to the kitchen "One chicken wrap sandwich only no lettuce no peppers less onion extra cheese toasted take away!" My Outlook calendar is a stark reminder of my annoying habit to meticulously allocate specific time slots in the day for certain tasks - even for taking a lunch break. Sad, aren't I? I think it's high time that I snapped out of my mundane routines and enjoyed life a bit more - though of course, that's easier said than done.

Still, I do appreciate the mundane - at least I know that something like this won't happen to me on a fairly 'ordinary' day:

Fag Hag
A friend of mine recently asked me an earth-shattering question:
"What if you had a kid and it was half lesbian and half gay?"

Anyone?

Never Ever




Oh

my

god.

I've loved Jason Behr ever since I saw him as a dopey-eyed alien on Roswell, but he's done a couple of good movies since his TV days (Dragon Wars was not one of them!)

But I completely missed out this movie of his - The Tattooist. Released in 2007, it's only just coming to cinemas in Dubai next week! I nearly passed out when I saw some of the photos for this movie - this is one flick that I'm going to watch in the cinema - nothing like seeing Jason's glorious abs on the big screen!

Beat Goes On




Tired of being single in Dubai? Bored of spending Valentine's Day with your cat? Do you just want to meet like-minded people for a cup of coffee? Then look no further than Single in the City - I got an email link about this site last week, and curiosity got the best of me once I saw a few ads for it on Facebook. Billed as a "Dubai's social network and events company", I do have to say it was highly entertaining when the website was blocked by local ISPs a week ago for sounding like a dating agency (we wish!). The site has now been unblocked, and I did manage to get a peek at a few of the studs on there. I'll tell you straight on ladies, there's nothing sexier than a man who's using his blue-background passport photo as his profile picture.

Woof!

Hot and Cold



There are many things in life that require etiquette - eating out, conversation at parties, etc. But the most under-taught etiquette is by far 'urinal etiquette' - and yes, this time I'm talking only about the men. (Unless there are some women readers out there with a few secrets to keep)

Now in the rare event that I need to use a public washroom, I head for a stall. Call me old-fashioned, but there's just something comforting about having a door and three walls to shield you from stares. But yesterday in the men's washroom at work, an 'incident' occurred that left me in peals of laughter. I had gone into the washroom to try and get the scent of pepperoni pizza off my hands from lunch, when these two guys come walking into the washroom, already deep in some business conversation. Without even so much as an afterthought, they head straight to the urinals, stand next to each other, unzip and go about their business - all the while still talking! I mean it was just fascinating how they could carry on conversing like nothing was wrong...I didn't know if I should laugh, scream, or offer to hold something. And just like that, they finished their business, washed up, and headed out, still babbling away.

It made me wonder - if they were negotiating a business deal, would they have ended the conversation with "Let's shake on it"?

Update: Just got this link from Sam - these should be set in stone!
