Car Washes

I work next to a large empty parking lot next to the mall. Every Saturday from May-September, there is bound to be some sort of group having a car wash.

Once, just once, I wish there would be adults working at the car wash. Specifically hott adult females. Like this...
I don't even require that level of fitness or breast enhancement. I'd just like some hott college girls to raise money for something. Then I could go and get my car washed, donate some money for a good cause, and oogle some hott girls in bikinis. Just sayin'. As is I drive past and mutter about how 16 year old's dress these days and try to ignore the skin.

You guys should come out with us...

After Tuesday's karaoke adventure, Kara and I swore off alcohol (for at least a week). On Thursday, we had Taco Bell and were sitting at home watching Skins on DVD. Then I got a call from Alanna. Nate (a boy Alanna and I work with) and Wesley (his boyfriend) were going to the gay bar and she wanted us to go with. After minimal amounts of convincing, we agreed to go.

Thirty minutes later I found myself walking into the Joplin gay bar. I believe it was our third visit. At this point I started to realize just how small the Joplin gay community is. I knew about 75% of the people there (or at least recognized them and knew medium amounts about their lives). Maybe on the weekends there are different people out, but not during the week. I digress.

Before we left the house, I made a serious resolve not to become a drunken mess on this outing. I think that I was quite successful. I had about 3 margaritas, played some pool, did not feel tempted to do karaoke, did not make lots of new friends, and did not ignore my girlfriend and talk to some other girl for the entire night. Improvement.

Kara, on the other hand, did not have the same resolve. She suddenly went from being mellow and chill to sitting on Alanna's lap and making her take shots. It was quite entertaining. Every few minutes she'd realize she was being bad and make lots of cute apologies.

We managed to get home without much of a hitch. Alanna came with us to crash on our couch since she was too drunk to drive home. The debauchery continued at home and Kara threw coffee bags and spatulas (do not ask me why...they thought it was really funny though). We talked a lot about those random things you always seem to think of when drunk. Then Kara put in some Advanced Barista Training (latte art) dvd. Borrrrrrrrrring. At that point I remembered that I woke up at 5:45am and took my ass to bed.

It seems like we've been going out a lot lately. This has to stop. I'm never going out again (for at least a couple of weeks)!

Karaoke Mess

I got my way and went to big gay karaoke night on Tuesday. There were thunderstorms and tornado warnings until about 9:30pm, so when we finally got to Murphy's at 10:30pm, it wasn't exactly busy. There were about 25 or so people there and karaoke was definitely happening.

Unfortunately, it wasn't really the party I was hoping for. There was one emo boy who must have just gotten his heart broken. He sang really sad songs every time it was his turn (which was every fifth or sixth time). There were a couple of people who were actually really good though which mostly evened it out.

There was also a creepy straight dude who kept trying to weasel his way in with some lesbians. He didn't even speak English very well, which made for interesting conversations. Mostly it went like this:

Creepy Straight Dude: Are you two girls together?
Us: Yes (ignore)
CSD: You want some man?
Us: No thanks (ignore, walk away, loudly say what the fuck)
*rinse and repeat every time we got up to get more drinks*

I was mostly bored and just started drinking lots of beer and smoking lots of cigarettes. Kara was absorbed in texting. Our friend Alanna was just chilling. Nothing too exciting was happening at our table. About halfway through the night some girls Kara knows showed up (Caitlin and Megan). They sat down and made things a lot more interesting.

One thing led to another and we ended up at a party at Caitlin's house. We played beer pong (and almost won damnit!). There were a lot of people there and somehow I got seperated from Kara and Alanna. I think I spent most of the night smoking on the back porch with Megan and talked her leg off about god knows what. I was really, really drunk.

Finally, we got home around 3am and fell drunkenly into bed. Why is it when I say I'm going to go out and it's going to be really chill, I often end up getting really drunk and acting wild?

I think I'll blame it on the alcohol.

Pride Karaoke

So my favorite local karaoke bar/hole in the wall is having pride karaoke tonight (probably to raise money for the pride picnic in the park this weekend).

I really want to go. A lot.

How to convince Kara? She works til 10:30pm so idk if she'll be up for it....but it will be really fun. No cover. The guy who runs the karaoke makes your voice sound awesome. Joplin's finest gaymos. What more could you ask for?

Send positive vibes.

I bought Sims 3 for my iPod touch on Friday and have barely found the time to go to work, let alone shower or talk to my girlfriend! She's addicted too.

I just can't pull myself away! Help!

Ugh. Swimsuits are the bane of my existence. Unfortunately, I really need a new one. The one I have is from um 4 years.

Can I just say swimsuit shopping is hell. First you have to take off all your clothes (except panties are required by law blah blah blah) which takes forever. Then you try on the micro pieces of lycra in very unflattering light. Then you critique your body to death and wish you'd been tanning. Then you remember skin cancer. You still wish you'd been tanning or at least jogging. You remove micro-lycra nonsense and get dressed again. Then you go back out and search for a different size/color/fit/pattern. Repeat from the beginning. Decide you'd rather swim naked. Bounce.

Except then it's June and you still don't have a swimsuit. Which is where I am...angst! (above photo is one that I really like from Victoria's Secret but I'm about 85% sure that it would not be so great for my body type...)

Things I really want to do in Vegas

So after officially deciding that we are going to Las Vegas, the first thing we did yesterday was ask off of work. Done! One week vacation. This is good news!

Then I spent a couple of hours googling for things that I want to do while we're there. So far I've found a few things...

The Sirens of Treasure Island

A free show outside the Treasure Island hotel/casino. Basically a 20 minute sirens vs. pirates battle complete with fire and lots of scantily clad women.

The Show in the Sky

A free show at the Rio. A burlesque style show set to popular music. Three different performances with slightly different themes...all hott.

Cirque du Soleil: Zumantiy

Description from their website: "Zumanity, the Sensual Side of Cirque du Soleil, is a seductive twist on reality, making the provocative playful and the forbidden electrifying! Leave all inhibitions at the door and let loose as this adult-themed production takes you on a sexy thrill ride full of sensational acrobatics and naughty fun. Part burlesque and part cabaret, Zumanity is one full night you'll never forget! "

Not a free option but something we REALLY want to do.

We are going to Las Vegas the last week in July! I'm really, really excited.

I haven't been on an actual vacation since I was 16, so 5 years!!!

I think she knows

My Little. Karly. I think that she knows I'm a lesbian. Maybe her mom told her. Maybe she figured it out. Who knows? The problem is that I am pretty sure she knows.

Why is this a problem? I mean obviously I'm out at work, to my immediate family, and to all of my friends. Her mom knows I am a lesbian and is fine with it.

The reason I am worried about it is because I don't want her to think I am lying to her. I don't want her to think I'm hiding it from her (even though essentially I am). I just want her to trust me.

Now what do I do? Talk to her mom? Talk to her? Continue to ignore the situation?
