Skyride Skyway ride


(e:Paul), (e:terry), (e:yesthatcasey) and I rode the GObike sky ride today. Casey and I volunteered for the preregistration and setup.

The day was perfect for a ride. The skyway itself was a anticlimactic but still very cool.

The ride was about 28 miles, and Paul managed to make it the whole way. I was proud.

The Mystery Machine


Who drives this? It looks like they invested a lot of time in it. (e:Paul) wants to drive it.

Coconut curry

(e:terry) has been teaching me how to cook. I know how to follow a recipe and end up with something resembling food. But I don't have a good workflow, taste for what needs spice, when foods are done cooking, or anything a recipe doesn't tell you. I've already learned a ton - soon I'm going to go all domestic and have June Cleaver dinners ready when P&T get home after me.

Wednesday we made a huge green coconut veggie curry with rice. It turned out pretty good, but a little bland without added spice so (e:paul) could eat it. The only thing I would do differently next time is use actual coconut milk rather than the coconut cream that we had. It made it too thick and sweet.

A clean green room

(e:paul) went on a crazy house cleaning and repair binge during his week long "vacation". I helped him out in cleaning the green room, which was absolutely trashed.

image

We already got rid of the fiberglass infested carpet, cleaned up the plaster from patching the ceiling entrance for the inebriated, and vacuumed up all the trash left over. It actually looks okay now.

image

image

Paul and I thought it might be cool to sand down and stain the wide plank floor, and fill the gaps in with some filler, either rope or an epoxy. The floor is ugly but still solid.

Crazy bike ride

We got back from camping, rested a bit, and headed out for a bike ride down to the Canal and up the riverwalk.

On the Riverwalk/190 overpass, right after the tunnel we heard someone yelling. All of the sudden, this kid comes flying around the corner on his bike way too fast. He nicks (e:yesthatcasey)'s bike and slams head first into Terry's chest.

It was terrifying. (e:Terry) was scraped but up and walking quickly while the kid took a while longer. Besides asking if he needed help I didn't know what to do. The kid said he was fine, and when I asked him about his bike's broken brakes, he said he they haven't been working. It seems so behindert that he would go flying down an incline like that with no brakes - if he didn't hit Terry he would have gone head first into a concrete wall.

The kid didn't want any help and rode off. Poor Terry hurt his knee and sprained his hand - I guess it could have been worse.

Afterwards, we cut the ride short to get groceries and make dinner at home. We grilled, had corn on the cob, cheesy potatoes and white bean hummus. I was so full.

A year

A day late but I met (e:paul) and (e:terry) one year ago (5/25/13).
Who knew that so much could happen in just a year? I feel so lucky. I can't wait to see everything we can do together.

I don't think I've ever felt so much love, and felt so loved.

Jones Pond Pt II

After the cleanup, (e:joe,59017), we headed out to go c(gl)amping with (e:yesthatcasey). We ended up deciding to go back to Jones Pond again, the other option being Brushwood. I have to give props to Casey for being open minded and coming to gay camp with us. It was very tame but he did have to put up with straight jokes and come ons from the resident senior citizens.

Almost the entire trip was a good time. The weather was amazing, we got plenty of swimming, football, beer and cheesesticks in. It was nice to relax and be outside in perfect temperatures. We found a good wooded camp site away from the open field.

On the other hand, I had fun hanging out among ourselves, but there weren't many people there I had interest in hanging out with. Getting looked at and talked about like pieces of meat gets old pretty fast. Obviously things were busier and a little less crazy for us than last week, but it's not a place I'd want to go back to very often.

Spring planting

Saturday morning, before we went camping, (e:paul), (e:terry) and I did some work around the house. (e:Paul) finished painting and repainting the driveway side of the trim on the house - it looks so good now.

Terry and I did some gardening - we planted snapdragon, sedum, catmint among other things. We also finally turned over the compost - it's real good after you get below the winter's worth of food.

Basra is an idiot and got himself stuck under the firepit. Instead of walking out, he stood up and started draging it around the yard.
