Hi, sorry I’ve not blogged in a few days.

Lots of things have happenened recently. Me and Nick are now dating. And it’s all going well so far. We went to see Louis Black last night at Summerfest and he was so funny!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ There were these two guys standing at the back of the theatre, who were wearing massive afro wigs, and Louis said “Do you know what’s wrong with this country?” and the two guys scream out “Kerry!” and everyone boos at them ๐Ÿ™‚ Louis just said “No and now shut the fuck up” and we all cheered him and then they started getting pissy so then security came in and everyone in the theatre started singing “Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye”. It felt like I was at home at the football again ๐Ÿ˜€

For all those people who have been asking about the pictures I last displayed, they are part of an art collection in Milwaukee that will be auctioned off after Labor Day. They are hippos and cows, and they are called ‘Beastie Beat‘. We had a similar collection here back in 2002, and you can find that collection on the website too ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m quite bored now. Nick has gone to work, and everyone is going to bed, so it’s going quiet here now and quite boring too ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Just wanted to post some new pictures of me. They will eventually go into the photo album, along with the others. I just picked out the better ones for now ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh and last night, I went to see Nick at the bar, and it went really well.

And double oh, I just discovered that not only are we dealing with Drunken White Man Fest, we’ve also got Nascar going on this weekend. Great it’s going to be like sardines in a can downtown ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Anyhoo, the new photos.. ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay so at the moment, I’m sat here at Project Q and just enjoying myself more than anything. The little teen gay boys are all running round creating drama, but now they all seem to have calmed down, and are watching some kind of movie.

But I have good news on the Nick front…

Ali has been bugging me recently to ask Nick on a date. And so I decided to write him a note. It said:

“Hi Nick, Okay I can’t keep this in any longer. I like you. A lot. More than a friend. I was wondering if you wanted to go and movie with me on your next day off. I can’t tell you to your face, because I’m too nervous ans shy. So yeah, I’m a big chicken. Hope you get back to me soon, Nickie x”

And then I was on my way out with Dave, so I never thought about it until I was on the bus on my way home, and then I started to get really nervous. And panicky ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I got back to my room and found there was a note on the floor with pencil writing on it. So I guessed it was from Nick, ’cause no one else writes in pencil. I opened the letter and it said:

“Nickie,

Yes, I get the drift dear. I was wondering why you always seemed a little nervous around me.My next day off is Monday although I’m going to Summerfest to meet up with some friends. But I have an extra ticket to get in, if you want to go with me, I’d like you to. If not, and your hoping tto get together, just the two of us, I’ll be done with practise and home by 10pm on Thursday night. Or we could even catch a matinee during the week in the afternoon.
So let me know if you want to make it a date on Monday. Oh and by the way, I think it’s cute the way your big brown eyes give away how giddy and nervous you are sometimes ๐Ÿ™‚

Nick”

OMG he actually likes me! Woohoo!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Oh wow. I have had an up-and-down kinda day ๐Ÿ˜‰

Things on the Nick front appear to be going well. He woke up around 2pm, and I was in my room reading a magazine. Because ,my room is right next door to the bathroom, I heard him go in there. So I raced out of my room, and plonked myself in the kitchen, the first place I knew he would go ๐Ÿ™‚ So I’m hanging out in the kitchen, trying to look cool and not like a pathetic school girl with a crush, and he walks in. I had to go out of the room, because I had this unshakeable grin plastered across my face ๐Ÿ˜€ So I come back in about two minutes later, and he’s talking to me about something or other, and everytime looks at me, I can’t help but grin like a loon at him. So I’m thinking “stop it, you’re starting to look pathetic now” but I can’t wipe this stupid grin from my mush ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

So eventually, I calm down. And he says he has to go back upstairs to get ready to go out. So I go back into my room, and then out again, and then the doorbell rings, and it’s the lovely man from UPS at the door with a parcel of mine. So I sign for it and then come back upstairs again. Henry at this time is just coming out of Michael’s room and he proceeds to pick me up and perve at me (for the gazillionth time). Henry then goes downstairs and I talk to Michael outside the bathroom, while Nick is still in the shower. We talk about random stuff, like how much Nick coughs and hacks away while he’s in the shower (Michael tells me Nick had something like strep throat or mono last winter…makes me want to mother him even more!) and I really want to brush my teeth because my breath stinks and I don’t want to be near Nick with death-breath. So, eventually, he comes out, having shaved his head and his face and taken a shower and been to the toilet. And they claim us women spend too much time in the bathroom! And the conversation goes like this:

Me: “Wow, you spent a long time in there!”
Nick: “Well, you know, I had to shave my head and stuff”
Me: “Hmmm, okay then. (stroking Nick’s head) I’ve been waiting for you to come out so I can clean my teeth”
Nick: “Sorry, dear :(”
Me: “Oh it’s okay” (said walking to bathroom)
Nick: “Okay then”
Me: (looking at floor) “I bet it’s you who leaves all these puddles of water all over the floor”
Nick: (looking guilty) “Um yup, that would be me :(”
Me: (making tutting noise)
Nick: (runs off to grab towel) “Here (lays down towel in front of my feet) now you don’t get your socks all wet”
Me: (getting all embarrassed by act of kindness) “Um thanks”

Oh and may I add, all the time he was talking to me, he was standing wearing nothing but his boxers ๐Ÿ™‚

OMG. I’m such a dork ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ooh ooh! Yay It’s going to be a short post tonight, I guess!

Well, the first thing is, Nick’s okay. I saw him this afternoon and we were talking, and he was telling me how he stayed in his room for most of the afternoon, because he was tired, then he slipped out to meet some friends. So he’s gone to football practise this afternoon and then he’s going to be working at the var tonight. It’s $2 Tuesday, so I’m going to be off down there for a few (and a lame excuse to see Nick I guess) hehe ๐Ÿ™‚

Aaaaaaaaannnnnnddddddd……The One With More Friends is now on the ‘Net! Me and Cole will start airing on Aug 19, so look out for it! ๐Ÿ™‚ To get there before then, go to http://www.tow-more-friends.com. See you all there soon!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Many thanks to the following people who have left comments on my blog recently:

Blah. I’ve just had one of those days today. I’ve been so bored because it has been raining all day here (again…) and everyone has been either at work or holed up in their rooms ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Dave went to work, Henry has been walking round with a right bag on, shouting at anyone who gets in his way, Michael has been reading in his room, Lee has been at the lab, Gary has been a slob watching telly for most of the morning/afternoon, Renee has been holed up in her room, Laurie went to work at 1pm, Mike went to work after fixing his car, Booker I saw go off to work earlier this morning and Nick, well I think he drank too much last night and is sleeping it off. I’ve only heard him get up for showers and I’ve heard him coughing, so I know he’s awake occasionaly. And I’ve been up and down the stairs, watching odd bits of telly (Are You Being Served, Keeping Up Appearances, Myth Busters and the local news), and reading my book. I was going to clean house because I was THAT bored, but decided against it when I went outside to sweep the porch and discovered it was chucking it down ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

So Laurie and I went out to the bar last Thursday ๐Ÿ™‚ We went to Landmark on the East Side and was with her friend Troy, when Laurie pointed out that Nick was at the bar. So, me being a nice person went up and had a chat with him, asking him how he was doing and if he was having a nice night off, etc… He asked me what I was drinking and told me that my next one was on him ๐Ÿ™‚ After that, I went back to the table with my FREE (!) pint of Miller High Life, and told the guys who I’d managed to wangle a free drink ๐Ÿ™‚ About half an hour later, Nick popped up again and started talking to Troy, and was giving me sidewards glances out of the corner of his eye…and winking at me ๐Ÿ˜‰ Now, okay, I have a thing for Rob Andy (as if you could ever forget!), but since I met Nick, I like him too ๐Ÿ˜€ Hey, while the cat’s away, the mice will play ๐Ÿ™‚ Besides, me and Rob Andy aren’t actually together anyhoo, so I can flirt with who ever the heck I like! So Nick bought me another drink when he saw my glass was empty, and after that it was closing time (2.30am!) so me, Laurie and Troy all got a cab back home and I went to bed to try and sort out my jumbled thoughts ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I decided yesterday to give it a shot, so I left a note on Nick’s door saying, “Hi, you know that drink I owe you, well, when’s your next day off?” and went to bed. This morning, I got a note back saying, “Hi, well tonight is my next night off ,dear, and also Thursday. Sorry about my handwriting, I’m really buzzed”. Which when I think about it must have meant that he was pissed. But I left him another note on his door, saying, “hi Nick, thanks for your reply. How about tonight then? If you can’t make it, then it doesn’t matter ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Have a good day :)” And I havn’t seen him at all today, just heard him clattering around in the bathroom next door to me, and him coughing in his room across the corridor. But the note has gone off the front of his door, so at least that’s good ๐Ÿ™‚
