Every Time We Touch
This comes from one of my favorite gay coming out movies - Get Real, set to a very corny love song by Cascade!
I am indeed alive and kicking and very well, just working as hard as I can to get everything done. It would seem that everyone wants something at the moment and I am up to my proverbial eyeballs in work.

It's the middle of the week and I am already buggered!
I set myself all these tasks at the end of the week based on what I need to get done and I generally write lots of to do lists. I get enormous pleasure in crossing things off the list as I do them.
However the last couple of months new clients have been beating down the doors literally to buy our software. We have had a 500% increase in online enquiries alone this year.
Like a lot of software we sell we start off with a particular product by having it built for a specific client, then we package it all up and sell it as a full commercial product. It means that we can make a significant amount of money on the software on multiple clients.
Sometimes though this strategy can bit us in the ass like it has today. I sold two licenses of a product which whilst we have it all installed in one client site, we have not had the time yet to 'commercialise' the product. Or in layman's terms take all references of the primary customer out of the code and make it easy for us to install elsewhere.
So I have to add that to the list of client deliverables, accounting, marketing and sales items that are all on my to do list for this week!
UGH! Sometimes increase success is a curse!

So in keeping with this new and very exciting move forward (not backwards) we went shopping and have ordered the furniture for the apartment. I am so excited I am almost falling over myself!
Unfortunately we must wait between 8 - 12 weeks for the actual delivery of said furniture, but that's what happens when you order from Italy I suppose!
So the designers chosen are, Corbusier, Poliform, Starck and others!

The whole hoop la about the resignation of BP's Lord Browne for his apparent indiscretions of lying about how he met his ex gay lover is laughable. He should have not lied under oath that he met the young man out and not paid him as an escort!
Let's not also forget that BP and him are up their ears in problems internally and his resignation probably has Little to do with the fact he is gay and more the internal management problems.
What I have found fascinating about the whole episode is the ex boyfriend selling his story to the papers. It is a very low thing to do to 'rat' on someone even if they did not necessarily treat you always with respect.
As my mother always says, Two wrongs do not make a right!
Being the toyboy of someone rich and famous (or infamous) requires some special skills and understanding that this kid obviously did not have!
For starters being a toy boy can be a long term career opportunity and you can move from one wealthy benefactor to another. In LA for example the boys move from mere millionaires, to multi millionaires to billionaires as they go up the food chain replacing their men regularly!
I do feel sorry for the kid he really didn't understand what he was getting in to and was obviously not well equipped for this but to sell your story?
We have been in the process of decorating our apartment ever since we moved in. We have done some decorating getting the new dining table and chairs and of course my sexy bloom pot.
We were looking at chairs over the weekend to go opposite the sofa so we can create a cosy place to sit when we have friends over. Currently everyone either sits on the long sofa or we all end up at the dining table.
We have gone through many and various ideas over the last year, from the idea of having square fabric cubes to having a corbusier chaise, to the current idea the Le Corbusier Pony Hide Basculant Armchair LC 1.
The LC 1 Sling Chair displays a sophistication sophistication and inventivene in design which is evident in all furniture of the 1920's era.
This sling chair was designed in 1929 and is popular till date. The chair has a tubular steel chrome frame that gives it an air of sophistication and warm elegance. The combination of a steel frame with natural hide leather seat and back is truly magnificent. Available in Pony Hide or black leather the Le Corbusier LC1 Sling chair stands out for its modern design and minimalist appearance.
What makes this chair extremely comfortable is its seat back that tilts back far, making the chair a lounge in essence. The leather strap arm rests offer greater support and heightened usability.
Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession
The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.
Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.

Over the last few months I have been seeing people out and about whose faces are familiar from out and about on the scene. This is not that unusual, the unusual part is that some of these gay boys have become mere gaunt stick figures of themselves.
Fifteen to twenty years ago you would see gay men shrink before your eyes and you would know that they were wasting away with the ravages of HIV/AIDS. Today though it's no longer HIV/AIDS instead it is the Crystal Meth crisis and the ravages of an extraordinarily addictive drug that many in the gay community think is benign or 'just another drug'.
Walking back to the office at lunch time today I saw a gaunt figure sitting by my building. He looked a bit like the last picture above, a couple of nasty looking sores on his face, cracked lips and really really unwell.
I wouldn't have looked twice except something about him was familiar.
I had a quick closer look and I was shocked by what I realised. This was a guy that even two months ago when we last went to a big dance party was one of the 'pretty young guys'. You know the type, muscly, perfect skin, hair, body, everything the whole gay enchilada.
But in no more than two months he looked like he was knocking on deaths door.
Now I know for a fact that this guy is into crystal because I was told by someone who knows him.
I think it's time for the gay community to really start to rally against this growing scourge in our community. I have seen at least five people in the last few weeks who have all gone from attractive muscly guys to gaunt thin crystal addicts.
The gay community needs to really start looking at the whole hedonism lifestyle and the use of crystal meth. We know both anecdoetally and through research that crystal meth is fuelling a resurgence in unsafe sex out in the community and by default a rise in new HIV/AIDS cases.
Crystal or Ice is so addictive that you can get hooked from almost the first go. It's a dangerous drug that should be avoided at all costs.
The Australian Federal Elections will be held some time this year and the Conservative Government headed by arch conservative John Howard is behind the eight ball in the opinion polls.
Of course being behind in the polls doesn't mean shit when it comes down to the actual result of the day. Most readers know I am particularly focused on equal rights for same sex couples in addition to the three pillars of a good society, Education, Health care and Social Services.
Throughout the Western World there is a push towards equalising same sex rights, even in the USA where the ultra conservative neo-cons are still hanging onto power some states are recognising sex relationships.
However Australia is falling even further behind, with the Federal Government vetoing the ACT's bill for same sex civil unions not once but twice!. source
Of course Howard and his right wing bigots claim that it's not meanness or discrimination against same sex couples (even though they all say a same sex relationship is worthless). Instead they come up with all sorts of arguments like:
Marriage, as we understand it in our society, is about children, having children, raising them, providing for the survival of the species. source
But this week the Federal Attorney General Phillip Ruddock has told the biggest untruth so far that can be proven to be a lie:
“If you change the eligibility criteria to include same-sex partners, it adds to the money that has to be found to pay the pension – and the proposition is a very simple one,” he said.
“Issues that can be readily addressed that don’t involve significant budgetary outlays which do bring different considerations to bear will be examined by the government.”
But in the Federal Budget which will be handed down next week the government is giving an $8000 bonus to parents with children!
So let me get this straight so to speak, they can fund a bonus like the baby bonus (get $3000 for having a baby), which encouraged violence; a spike in gambling; and a rise in teen pregnancies & increased sales of plasma televisions, but they can't afford to have equality for same sex couples?
What a load of horse shit.
This is nothing more than a cynical ploy to get the soccer mums to vote for them and look at the underlying message:
"We support babies but not those dirty poofters and lesbians! Vote for us to keep felinggood about your bigotry"
Vote the bastards out and relegate Howard to the footnote in history where he belongs.
It's certainly not the first time this sort of thing happens in the area and not the first incident for this particular club.
What I always find fascinating is it's the straight clubs on Oxford street which seem to attract this sort of thing. Personally I think that the poofters should take back the street and make it fully gay once again!
I am fine now! Just a fe days of utter nasty sickness but I am feeling a million times better!
Thanks to everyone who emailed, sms'd and left messages here :)
starting last evening I have been as sick as a dog with either food poisoning or a gastro bug. It was so bad last night that I went to the Emergency Department of the nearby hospital to get a shot to stop me throwing up.
They ended up keeping me there for four damn hours while they re hydrated me and did a battery of blood tests. Finally they let me leave around 6A.M. and I have been struggling the entire day between exhaustion and trying to keep myself hydrated and try to eat something.
If there is one thing I hate above all others it is being ill. Yuck Yuck Yuck.
