Heya peeps, hope everything that's shakin' is puddin n pie for you all - thought it was time for a little update - I'm thinking of doing some more bingo nights this summer but not ready to announce anything yet because, you see, I told all the porn companies that I wasn't going to be doing any fundraising again and so I feel kind of weird going back to them and saying "hey that thing I said, well, I meant it but I miss my bingo peeps.... "
I also today cancelled my Tinder account. For those of you unfamiliar, it's yet another ap for gay men to use to express a mild interest and then go radio silent. Forever. After three months of this, I've opted out. So now, just hours later, I'm bored and ready to go out in to the real world and meet real people. It'll probably be the same people that I met on Tinder, but at least if I talk to them and they say nothing back, the social awkwardness will be a little bit more evident. So stay tuned.
But I'm happy to announce that I'm involved in the first Fire Island Bear Weekend held on Fire Island (where else?) the weekend of June 5, 6 and 7. It's going to be a gathering of bear types from around the tri-state area (and I'm not talking NYC, NJ and Connecticut, no I'm talking about the states of Being Horny, Drinking Your Body Weight and Being Delirious with Joy).
The organizer, Shane, has bunches of parties lined up including the world famous Fur Ball - Fire Island Edition... and I hear that Daniel Nardicio has one of HIS world famous parties going on too - one that involves underwear and ONLY underwear. You can find out everything that's being planned by going to the Fire Island Bear Weekend website by clicking here. See? I made that easy for you (and I was very sly on top of it). Find yourself a place to nap (I recommend doing this in shifts; whomever you're renting from out there should offer sign up sheets.. you know, like you did when you were at summer camp and everyone wanted to get in the canoe but no one wanted to make lanyards. And for a certain someone reading this who will no doubt say "I love lanyards", my response is "of course you do").
Naturally, amidst all the par-tays, you can't even think of missing my contribution - a Saturday night contest at Cherrys so awesome that it even gets it's own page on the Fire Island Bear Weekend website (notice how I worked that name in just one more time?) - and it's going to be a great deal of fun - The First Mr. Fire Island BEAR Contest. I'm producing and emceeing. I've got judges lined up (no fair telling this early) and prizes ($100 cash and two tickets to the Furball for the winner and a good strong whiff of my armpits for the runners up. We are sparing no expense here) plus a possible performer (Mary, make up your mind and just say yes, you know you want to) AND the whole evening will raise funds for the Cherry Grove Fire Department - we'll be doing a 50/50 raffle which means you could walk away with some cash and the rest will go to the hot firemen. You can click here to sign up for the contest. You can also see what we're looking for as the face of the Fire Island Bear Weekend.
I'll be back here in this space in a few days with more on the weekend, bingo and more obligatory nonsense (after all, I have whole minutes back in my life now that I've ditched the Tinder). smoooch..later!
