new york state of mind
i'm back from vacay finally. intense apt hunt to come in the next week. vegas wasn't anything thrilling. i warned you! lots of laying out by the pools by day, light gambling and shows and dinner at night. it would have been ten times better with friends, so now i know for next time. there were many fine men around but walking around with the mother def. kills my game. sigh. also, when i was walking around with my brother i'm sure most the people there thought we were dating. we don't look enough alike for people to realize we're related. game killed, again!
library adonis called again yesterday. i was thrilled i was able to keep his attention the whole time i was away. i guess i never returned his last call (i thought he told me to call when i get back...?) and his message was classic. "hi, it's jared, AGAIN..." he sounded like me when i left my second unreturned message for him. dropping a couple "i have no idea if i'm ever going to hear from you again" type phrases. i called him back and we actually talked. imagine that! conversation was easy, though i don't always understand what he is saying. we both talk way too fast and sometimes don't understand each other. he was flirty, i think (so hard to read, this one...). he's at the jersey shore this weekend, he gets back sunday. i told him i'd call him so will drop him a message saturday at some point. will tell him i'm jealous of his beach time and that i wish i was out there too, lying out with a book on the sand. hopefully this will conjure up for him visions of myself in a bikini, thus insuring a phone call on his return.
it's been a while since i've left NYC for a whole two weeks. i know i'm always exclaiming this city's virtues, so for a change, i'll tell you all the things i DID NOT miss about nyc while i was gone.
-times square. i fucking hate that place.
-lack of stars in the sky.
-living sans dog.
-how goddamn expensive everything is here.
but that having been said, there's really nothing in this world like the sight of the new york city skyline on the plane on the way back in. the minute i see it, my heart always leaps. this is a beautiful fucking city and regardless of my near-semi-homeless state, new york is where i hang my hat. any place i hang my hat is home.
