The photos below I just got developed are from a few weeks ago. Just Fiends havin' fun. Look at Gregos sinister grin.
It's been hot in Chicago for the past 5 plus days. Pushing the mid 90's and HUMID too boot. And things couldn't be any hotter as summer 2005 looks to be busier than summer 2004 and so far I'm having a better time being that I'm actually happy this season.
Thursday night was a pretty quiet one that got off to a late start and went into the wee hours of the AM. It was so hot the sofa was soaked as were the bedsheets. But it seems that the sofa suffered the most. The AC didn't seem to put much of a dent into keeping bodily secreations to a halt or even a minimum. WTF ! ? !
I got back to Kelly's at 11 AM Friday morning. It was her day off and the temp was pushing 90 already and it wasn't even noon. I brought over 2 double meat Gyros and a bottle of vodka, some Squirt, some tomatoes, and lettuce, pickles, tomato joosh, and ginger ale. Yup it was going to be Bloody Mary's and Gyros for brunch. And then we changed clothes put on our swimming suits and were off to Oak St. beach which is by far much better than North Ave.. Thanks to Brett and Brad for the tip on that location. As the temp rose passed 95 we stayed cool and even managed to fall asleep in the sand for a bit. It was soooo relaxing. In fact we were so caught up in being relaxed we almost forgot we had a show to see that night. Grigori 3 at the Note. So we packed up and got in a cab and went to her place where I had a change of clothes but, it wasn't in the cards. We both fell asleep. Exhausted.
Kelly and Jennifer
Woke up at around 3 AM and we were both more or less wide awake.
Around noon Kelly went off to work and I went home did a few things tweaked a press kit (thanks Kimberly) and met her later to get ready for a night at Transit where they were debuting the new VIP room. We got there just after they opened and cut the line as always and once in the hall we already had 1/2 a dozen people remark they hadn't seen me in awhile. Then Jordan took us back to the VIP room made a few people move and we started with an hour of free cocktails. Then the gentleman that he is he began ringing us out the champagne. 4 bottles in all or was it 3. I lost count. We also sent one to the people who were sitting next to us. By 130 or 2 it was time to go. We had more than enough and a big day planned for Sunday. So we got a cab and split for the north side.
I woke up at seven Am and got a bus home and then went back. Kelly and I had brunch at Holiday Club and I swear I had the best eggs benedict of my life. To no surprise she had the same. This is a weird trend that we somehow enjoy almost exactly the same foods. The pitchers were 1/2 off so I had Bloody Mary's and she had Mimosa's. I couldn't even finish mine. Which is bizarre. It was already after 11 and we had planned to be at the gay Pride parade at 11. So we spilt, packed up my cooler and went off to grab a primo spot right where the parade turned at Halsted and Broadway. Everyone was partying. And after all the years of marching in band and all of the parades I've seen and been sick and tired of this is the only one I look forward to. The first time I went was in 2000 when I hadn't even lived here quite a year, and it was a riot, and I had to go do my radio show that night. And every year after I can never find anyone especially my significant other to attend. I mean it's not like you have to be gay to support the people or even have some fun. I find it odd that some people still have prejudices accepting that lifestyle. But hell with it, this parade is a good time and Kelly is a fun gal. And we had a GREAT time. I video taped it and all I could think of was I can't wait to show my little brother. You could hear me laughing over the crowd because some of the shenanigans were so damn hilarious. At least to me.
The gang sans AZ
After the parade we just happened to walk past El Mariachi and Kelly could not resist, so cooler, camera and all we went in and ordered a big pitcher of their great margaritas and a couple of Chicken Burritos Suizo. And Ol El M always means a good time for AZ afterwards. Don't ask me why but it always ends up the same way.
We got back to her pad both fell asleep for a few hours and I woke up just in time for Blue Collar Comedy Tour and woke her up in time to see my favorite comedian Ron "Tater Salad" White. FINALLY. I have seen this damn show so many times and have told her about it for the last 6 weeks and it finally came on. The we had a nice quiet evening inside with the AC and her cat.
And that was my weekend. Yesterday it was so fucking hot AGAIN that I couldn't bear being in my house with only one AC and it being in my room so we went to a buffet and then did some shopping for a few hours in a nice big AIR CONDITIONED department store and then just chilled out till late watching Desperado and Once Upon A Time In Mexico and ended up being up till 3 not able to sleep. Something was bugging us.
So for there not being any real rock n roll involved it was a rock n roll style weekend. And next weekend Jesse Jane all weekend and wrapping it up with seeing the Cubs with her and the AVN staff as well as some other porn stars she's supposed to be tagging along. Maybe Cytherea? (for both of us)? Arianna Jolie? (for Kelly) ? or MISSY MONROE? I can't wait to see her brothers reaction to this one.
Here's the latest and greatest photo of Missy Monroe for you who don't know who she is YET!
