You should read this

Now over the last year or so it has become a bit of a past time for the roomie and myself to giggle at hilariously lame or contradictory profiles on hookup sites.
The blog lurid diggs takes it to a whole new level. Its catty but oh so damn funny.

Also i have been reading this other blog stuffwhitepeoplelike.
Big update coming tommorow!

Swift Karmic Retribution

Today was my Dad's 50th birthday party. It was filled with fun food and lots of family.

In order to torment the old man a bit extra for this milestone April and I were recruited to toliet paper and silly string the front yard. I had to be at a restaurant to meet up with my folks and my dad's side at 4 so i went out early and hid down the street waiting for my parents to leave the house. Within minute of them leaving April and I were toilet papering and silly stringing everything in sight. (the best part is i used my parents own toliet paper to do thier place)
So we can now add vandalism to my list of sins.

Now the funny thing is we didn't get busted at the party for doing this. Everyone thought it was my aunt and uncle. No one even suspected the two of us. My mom and dad were mildly pissed about it

I leave the party at about 12:30am to find that my car has been egged. Now i have worked it out and there is no way anyone at the party could have done it and no one could have connected me to my car as it was parked about 8 houses down the street. So this was indeed a random act.
Karma can be such a bitch.
I can't even be pissed off.

For all the boys

Some of you guys have requested pictures of my progress so I quickly took this pic last night. I should have taken it right after working out but I forgot. As you can see there is a lot of work to go but its definitely better than before.

Anyone not interested in seeing a short hairy Aaron in his undies do not scroll down. The rest of you pervs enjoy:

Harder better faster stronger # 2

My parents have this scale at their place. Its one of those uber trendy body mass calculators that you input your age and height and it tells you what your body fat % is and where you are health wise.

Now i confess I don't quite understand the technology behind it and I have a hard time fully trusting the results it gives. It all seems like the modern version of the snakeoil salesman to me.

None the less my family suckered me into trying the scale a couple of months ago before I worked out. The results were devastating. The cold metal machine cheerily informed me that not only was I fat but i was OVERFAT. I didn't even know that was a rating. Now its one thing when your roommate or mother calls you fat. They are people filled with subjective opinions. But a machine... a cold hard calculating machine?!? There's no arguing with that. What a blow to the ego.

Maybe the machines have taken over but instead of dropping nukes on the human population to destroy us (a la terminator or battlestar) they have wormed their way into our bathrooms to ruin our self esteem and poke fun at our love handles. Why destroy us when they can keep us around for entertainment?

So here are my results from 2 months ago:
Overall rating: Overfat
Body fat %: 29.8%
Weight: 170.2 lbs

Here are my results AFTER my big Easter dinner on Sunday (i forgot to measure before so things would have looked even better):
Overall rating: Overfat (fucking machines!)
Body fat %: 25.2%
Weight: 162.3 lbs

Net change
Body fat % = 4.6%
Weight: 7.9 lbs

Now while i am still overfat I have dropped a lot of bad weight and reduced my body fat content by a whole bunch. I think in a few more percentage points I will just be plain old fat. I can't wait for that. Ill show that machine who is boss.

Viva la Human emancipation for freedom from smarmy bathroom scales!

My adventures in the closet: Number 43939

Last week was insane. So insane in fact I was breaking out and literally loosing my hair. As such my promise to catch up with my blogging fell through. My apologies.

This Saturday is my dads 50th birthday. There is going to be a big party and I am going to be seeing my dads side of the family which I am not very close with at all. Before the party we are having a big dinner with this side of the family.

A few weeks ago my parents got to meet Greg. It was a little weird for all of us involved because in 25 years I had never had to introduce them to anyone I was dating. I guess i had put it off for long enough lol. Things went really well. They were very nice to Greg. Ryan still thinks my Mom was drunk but I doubt it (she was apparently way too relaxed). They were even worried how they did after.

My mom invited Greg to Easter dinner despite the fact that she doesn't want me coming out to the family yet. She said he could come as my friend. I told her that deal didn't interest me and we left it at that.

Now there has been an invite to my dads birthday with the same deal. I think its fair not to come out on someone else's bday I shouldn't be stealing anyone's thunder. Still I am just not at a point in my life where I am interested in lying about who I care about

Bitch Bitch Bitch

Things have been a little insane here so i am going to bitch about all the things that are pissing me off not so much because I need sympathy but because I need to vent.

Condolezza my car may be toast and I have to wait till teusday to take it in. Because of this I will probably not be able to get my macbook

The website projects have been delayed because of client's inability to create content also a reason im not getting my macbook.

My other wisdom teeth are coming in and my face hurts and I really dont want to go to the dentist after what happend last time

Speaking of which I am stressed and breaking out.

Work is stupidly insanly hardcore this week. We are doing a webinar tommorow that is the culmination of 2 years of sales work. If anything goes wrong its my ass.

Deadlines are a bitch.

I missed out on my families easter egg hunt and hanging out with a bud from out of town because of all this shit.

I am sooooooooo looking forward to the long weekend.

It's my party and I will wear a leather harness if I want to.

This last weekend was pretty quiet Greg and I spent most of it doing a Battlestar Galactica marathon in prep for the new season coming out soon.

So instead of yet another post about how awesome Battlestar is this will be about BEEF!

BEEF! the bear party Daren and I had been planning for months happend a few weekends ago. Edmonton has never had a bear party before so we had no idea how receptive the community would be to it. Add that to the fact that the bar double booked our party with some sort of Imperial Soveriegn court of the wild rose function. Now I confess I had no idea what these court people were all about. I had seen them out and about at pride parades in their sashes and tiaras and to be honest I really don't get it. I think its great the fundrasing work that they do, but honestly I think I missed the boat on it it just seems very silly to me. Needless to say I was more than worried about these two very different groups being thrown together in the same bar. Luckily the court cancelled their event becuase we had our posters up first. I am certain this is not the last we will here of the court however. I have never known drag queens not to hold a grudge.

The turn out was great we were expecting 40 to 60 and ended up with roughly over 140 people.
I of course whored myself out selling shooters and then procedded to get messy drunk. All in all it was a massive success. We are planning the next one for may 3 I think. Here are the pics:

It took me about 3 days to recover from beef and a whole week to feel totally human again. Luckily I had my website projects to keep me focused. Also I think I am going to buy a macbook and then load windows xp on it. You know just to piss off both sides of the mac/pc debate. Thoughts?

Queer Theater Review: 3 different Heavens

I went to see a play by the very talented Nathan Cuckow on friday at the notheren light theater. I have known Nathan for a couple of years now through my roomate so we all managed to score some free tickets. 3 Different Heavens (follow the link for a synopsis) was powerful, touching and funny. I admit it pulled up a ton of very recent raw emotions given the fact that I just came out to my family. It was superbly acted as well. I teared up. Sooooo good.

New Music

I found this great record by a chick named Sia. "Some people have real problems" is an awesome disk for when your feeling mellow (or insanely hungover as I was after the BEEF party). I have been listening to it over and over and can't stop. Check out her wicked video (that i think i posted ages ago) for Buttons. I find it fascinating that in an industry obsessed with beauty she pokes fun at it by making herself kinda gross in the vid. As a side note she is definitely playing for the queer team (dating Le Tigre's JD Samson) so go show some support by buying her disc.

On another music note I found a great new song on Disposable Egotrash's blog (love the name, love the blog, you should be reading it). I am having trouble classifying MGMT's musical style something really classic about it (think a mix of 60's hippy 70's funk and Electro poppunk). All i know is that "Time to pretend" maybe one my favorite songs ever! Hows that for hyperbole. Download the song here and if you so feel download their album Oracular Spectacular here.

Umm apparently you are all a big fan of pussy.

So I have no idea how this happened considering my usual reader base. Looking at the search terms used to get here it appears that lots of people are coming here because of pussy. I know its because of this post but i would like to clarify, this is a pussy free zone ladies and gentlemen. I suppose it could be worse I could be attracting "the random objects used in anus" crowd.

Welcome to DAS BOOT

I am back blogging after much activity Expect a post or two every day this week.

A couple of fridays ago Eoin had a poker night. I won at poker legitimately and drank from a real Das BOOT. Anyone who has seen beerfest knows they make a big deal out of being able to drink from the boot without '"Dee Bubble" blinding you.

I survived the bubble while drinking it but when i went to put the boot down the splashback blinded me.

Ladies and gentelmen there are a few things you shouldn't put in your eye: salt, lemonade, cum, Anne Coultier, sticks and beer.

That shit burns.

Heres some pics of the debauchery:
