Such cool weather....Rain and clouds and coolness....Back to wearing sweaters and lite coats already! The last few mornings have been very cool so we have dipped into our sweater allotment to wear for work. I feel so nice and smart in my new H&M sweater today....It sure has been a cool and mild summer-perfect if you ask me--- Hi 50's and Low 60's in the evenings and 70's in the day...Except for a few days when it was 90 plus and the nights were a bit warm it was really nice. I didnt even have to change out the bedding this summer....I'm not complaning as I love cool nights and I love to snuggle with a comforter.....Its so hard on mornings like this to get out of bed when its all comfy and cozy. Even the dogs have a hard time getting up as we are all snuggling......that is except LOLA......she was up at 4am this morning licking my face and finally when she knew I was not going to wake up she was a good girl and chewed on her dental rawhide till the alarm went off at 445........then she was ready to play.......puppies are so much fun....Like every morning shes zooms around the house while we get ready licking our ankles and making little noises......she makes sounds that are like a mini Chibaka....so dang cute....you cant help but be in a good mood with little Lolita cooing around your ankles!
So I am hoping the weekend is at least dry.....Hubbys B day is the 3rd so we are have a few things planned this weekend to celebrate. We usually go to Long Beach Washington on the coast every year with a bunch of friends and rent a house on the beach but this year we are going to stay home and lay low for the holiday weekend..... I think I am going to plan a weekend getaway in a few weeks to the coast-- there will be a lot of space to find a good beach rental and it will be less crowded and less pricey...We and the dogs need a end of summer getaway....I cant beleive we are at the tail end of August can you?

Did you all see Matt Mitcham kick some ass in diving this weekend? Unless your under a rock in our pink planet you have at least seen or heard the news....What a incredible feat as he did a dive to win a gold medal in the men's 10m platform! (which also ended host nation China's hold on wining all gold medals in the Beijing Olympic diving competitions). So here is my picture post of this outstanding young man! The hubby and I was rooting for him big time as he has been in the gay media and such for sometime now and when he was on last months ADVOCATE cover it reminded us to make sure to watch him so we could cheer him on in the Olympics along with the American boys! What a pleasant surprise to watch him kick some ass and go on to win the GOLD! I hooted and hollered so loud that I think the neighbors must of wondered WTF is going on over there!!! So CONGRATS to Matt-It couldn't of happened to a nicer fellow!!! ---I had a crush on him before all this but now to see him at the Olympics and how cute he was in not only looks but personality as well ........Now I have a bigger crush on him!

Is a HIT with me!
It was a reality TV last night for me--so thank god for the DVR!....I needed to get some stuff off the Que so we can keep recording...Some highlights....So I turned away from the Olympics for one night and first got caught up on some Big Brother- Goodbye April! It was nice knowing ya...Go DAN!!! Go REMY!!!! I am enjoying BB10 and though I am not usually a fan I am hooked this season...Then I got to watching Tabathas Salon Takeover which I enjoyed alot! I am going to like this show and Tabatha. I hope the show gets a audience-I bet it does- bigtime! I will be a fan that's is for sure....this critic was not a fan and I hope Tab and the show can prove to this critic Mary McNamara wrong.....Mary kinda sucks- Every time I come across her critiques it makes me roll my eyes.....where did they find this lady? Anyhow, I wasn't sure we needed another hair show as well but this one is a bit different and I like Tabathas persona alot...She will make the show is my guest...But then again I like people that are straight forward and they don't tend to run around the bush....she reminds me of another straight shooter-Jeff Lewis from Flipping Out...I am so over candy coaters...Sweet is so out and overrated at least in my book these days! I didn't get to watch The Cho Show which also was a debut last night...Will have to catch this one over the weekend! I am a reality show junkie these days-- its all due to the gimp foot which I am still nursing!

With all the hoopla with Neil about his cover shot and pictorial inside the latest issue OUT (well deserved hoopla as I personally have ALWAYS thought Doogie was a hot number) I had to include an older pic that I had posted of him last January- shirtless! BTW...The article about Manhunt was pretty interesting too. Again click it to make it GROW bigger!

Going Zen On Episode 3
Yes.... this is a guilty pleasure of mines....New York "Tiffany Pollard" has a new show-her 3rd season and this time its New York Goes to Hollywood....Now I know there are many haters of Tiffany but I dont care as I get a big kick out of watching her and I just cant help but watch her shows as she cracks my shit up! I love her.....Last night I happen to catch the 3rd episode where New York does a spec commercial for a Japanese energy drink. I was laughing so hard....Tiffany and the Japanese director had me in total hysterics! Check it out if you get a chance-- A few clips can be found here....
That's the way the cookie crumbles.
Sad news about Debbie Fields filling for bankruptcy as one of my first jobs out of high school was with the Mrs Fields Cookie empire....I was a assistant manager at 2 store locations, first the University District location on the AVE. (University Of Washington-Lots of cute collegiate boys!) and then the store on Broadway (which was the gay strip in Seattle in the Capitol Hill neighborhood back in the day- LOTS of GAY BOYS)....needless to say those were indeed good times!......Later, I became the store manager of the Pike street store in downtown Seattle for awhile. All locations have been long gone for many years now but there was a few locations left in the malls and I will sometimes grab a quick fix when go to the mall. This was all way back in the hey day of the Mrs Fields cookie mania in the late 80's and boy I was a young guy. It doesn't really seem so long ago now when I think about it but its hard to believe it was over 20 years ago-- gosh time flies! These were the days were I could eat a zillion cookies and still not increase my slender 29 inch waist....no way jose these days.....I remember those whole macadamia nuts we would get in 50lbs cases......we would eat a few handfuls of them! Oh no! Do you think we are a partial blame for scarfing down so many mac nuts back then? OOPSIE! Sorry Debbie.....

Great job boys! Showing off your Bronze Medals and looking good too! At least we don't have to hear all the grunts and groans like the controversy's surrounding the women's teams.....Yes it is so obvious that the China team is younger than 16, and yes the judging was slow this year,But the women's team screwed up ALOT and sucked a bit- I wont name names...And most likely would of lost the gold anyhow. I wish they would just be happy with the silver they got as the silver medal is a awesome accomplishment! So girls take a cue from the boys...they sucked at the pummel horse and also had to wait for the slow starts due to this years judging crap as well but they are still so proud and you women should feel the same...
However... I do hope they keep there shirts on as there will be no picture post here of the women as this is a no boob zone on this blog.....
Is it just me or could this pic be a porn vid cover? "Olympic Metal Orgy 08"???
DOLL CollectorSo my husband collects dolls....well not any doll....He collects Barbies and such...He has the Cher doll above in its original box and has all the international Barbies, The Wizard of Oz dolls, yada yada yada....I like the Sonny one above and I think it would make a cute set with the Cher-"I got you babe"......The only ones I have added to this doll collection is the In Sync dolls that was on clearance at Target so I got them for like 6 bucks...Oh I also got the Brendan Frasier Tarzan that was like 4 bucks on clearance at Walmart as well so yes we do check out the toy departments in stores we visit....you never know what you may find in clearance sections. We have them all displayed in one of the spare rooms on this built in wall shelf. Its the only room we have not remodeled and it is like a kids room so it works well....I will take a snapshot and post it soon! Last Christmas we went to another gay couples home for a party and one of the fellas had a room that was Scobby Doo....A ROOM full of Scobby! It was Scobby Doo explosion and was amazing! I really should of started a collection of GI Joes....I used to play my GI Joe so much growing up...I particularly loved my GI Joe Camper Trailer set. I would take off all his army clothes and put him in a mud bath outside-- hmmm.....he had the scruffy hair and beard....He was so hot! I really loved that doll....
There is only one other doll I loved as much...It was my favorite possession ever and I just found it surfing the Internet for it this morning and I am so excited to find it......it was what I called my Comfy... It really was a Humpty Dumpty.....SO THIS IS SO EXCITING! OMG! I need to get one! Its almost exactly what I had!

US smashes French and worlds record!
We are one day behind with the Olympics so we will need to catch up tonite as we we have it all taping on the DVR. Watched all of Sundays broadcast last night and saw the United States win the gold in the men's 4x100-meter freestyle relay final...The fastest French relay team ever assembled could not stop Michael Phelps' assault on Olympic history. Instead, U.S. teammate Jason Lezak preserved it with the fastest relay split ever swum. Look at Michael Phelps and his teammate Garret Weber-Gale were scream with delight! The French had talked smack about smashing the Americans...well that didn't happen....Cest la vie!

for me this weekend
I layed low over the weekend to rest my bum ankle which meant being home with the husband and dogs watching the boob tube and taking naps. We did venture out to the mall on Saturday to go the H&M--as we had to return a few things there and then and pick up a few things at Macys for a wedding gift as we have a wedding this next weekend. So I was pretty much was just glued to the boob tube on the sectional over the weekend....again.....I feel myself gaining weight and losing my summer tan....fast......this whole foot thing is getting old. Thus We watched alot of the Olympic coverage and saw how mens and womens swimming is doing very well but one of my fave things to watch.... men's gymnastic's seem to be suffering in the qualifying rounds-not good! I really hope they can rope it in.....I sure do miss the Hamm brothers.....No Hamm for any of us for over the weekend which was very sad.
