"This is Our Once-A-Year Day"

The lovely Kelli Morgan has invited me to go with her and her boyfriend to an Oscar Party in Rogers Park.

So, I just walked through the sleet and snow and icy sidewalks of Boystown to go to Kafka to buy a couple of bottles of reasonably priced wine to bring with me.

And by "reasonably priced," I mean "cheap."


I have this to report:

The fags are out in numbers!

Buying booze, scuttling into bars to stake their claim to barstools in prime locations...

I saw friends sitting in the windows of bars. I saw friends getting out of cars to dash to the Chicago Gay Men's Chorus' event at Sidetrack. I saw friends finishing up their early dinners at HB.

It's Homo High Holy Day, folks!!!

Other Homo High Holy Days include (but are not limited to):

____________

Halloween

That's my friend Michael of "The Fashion Police" on the right.
Hey Michael, Angie Dickinson there is taller than you!


____________


Gay Pride Day
(obviously)

I don't know these boys from Chicago's Gay Pride Parade, but... don't they look a little lost? Or a lot whiny?

"Brent, like, how much, like, longer do we have to, like, wear these, like, wings? The straps are, like, totally gonna, like,
fuck up my, like, tan!"


____________


And my personal favorite Homo High Holy Day...

International Mr. Leather
(This one is Chicago specific)


Yeah, just a picture of the boots. I'll allow your imagination to drift... upwards...

____________


So, I'm off to drink wine to counter- act the effects of watching Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana DePandi...

...they always cause me to have a little "throw up" in my mouth...

"Seacrest out!"

I'm think the title of the blog comes from a song. Where the song comes from and who sang it originally I don't know. Pretty sure I've heard Harry Connick Jr. sing it though.

E - "Hey There!" You are SO on the right track!!! He was going to be my clue. Anyone else? :)
