I'm back, from outer space

I just returned from a weekend in KC visiting some of me hearties from the days sailin' the Minnesotan main. Arrr, twas some good times. (Did *you* know that today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day?). It was two days full of drinkin', gamblin', dancin' and drag queens.

Yup, I went to my first gay club this weekend for a drag queen show and then some dancing upstairs with some friends. We figured that since most of the weekend would be spent doing what we always did back in high school, we'd have a night just for our friend Matt who came out senior year. It was wicked fun, the drag queens were witty, drinks were cheap, I was called "hon" by the bouncer - a large man with a handlebar mustache - and I got to watch two of the hottest lesbians I've ever seen dancing together. That, in particular, was good. It was also an educational experience. I learned that gay men like to watch themselves dancing way more than straight guys, hence why the entire dance floor was surrounded by mirrors.

The rest of the weekend was just spent playing darts, drinking, and teaching my friends to play poker games other than the Texas Hold'em they've seen on television (believe me, after playing that for 3 hours, it gets old really fast). All told it was a fantastic weekend and I'm ready to rock for work this week before headin' out to kick it with my homey jPo this weekend.

Also, if you haven't heard of a band called Scissor Sisters, go over to iTunes right now and download their song "Take Your Mama" - it's a great tune. The whole album is really good, but that's the song I've been listening to on repeat for about the last hour or so. Woo-hoo!...

...I mean ARRRRRRR!!!!

After all, Elmo seems equally disinterested in both...
