Actions speak louder than words

Yes, I am a firm believer of "actions speaks louder than words". You may quote it differently. "Walk the walk not just talk the talk". "To see is to believe". "Don't just say it, prove it". "Talk is cheap". "Practice what your preach". The message is loud and clear. If you profess something, let your deeds support such proclamations.

This extends in the affairs of dating and relationship. It is my experience that lately, I have met several guys that are mostly just all talk. They say that I am so cute or that they want to be friends but they don't do anything to prove it. Countless failed invitation to hang out have I issued. No invite on their part to do something.

Perhaps they exaggerate or lie about what they say cause I believe if they really meant it, they would do something about it. That is all to it!

my goldfish playing dead or sleeping?

Here is a cute clip of a behavior I observed on my gold fish. Is he playing dead or sleeping? Quite amusing really. But on the sad note, this fish actually died eventually.

Duality of my feelings about the Cubs

I was never a big fan of the Chicago Cubs or baseball. Lately I find the traffic and other vexations associated with the Cubs game in my neighborhood has turned me more against it. Plus the last guy that disappointed me was a huge Cubs fan so that made the Cubs less in my favor. The Cubs was a reminder of that chapter in my life I would rather forget.

In the past, I have gone to a handful of Cubs game and the experience was not at all unpleasant. In fact it was rather enjoyable. Beer and good company with friends/coworkers are always very agreeable. Just today, a guy I sort of like invited me to watch the Cubs game. And as in my past experience during the ballgame, I had a pleasant time. Watching the crowd roar with a home run, laughing with my friend, ogling the other cute guys, feeling the cool breeze of the fine summer day and drinking beer made it all pleasant enough.

So does this mean I like the Cubs now? Not for a long shot but let us just say my opinion of the Cubs improved with every pleasant experience I have with it.

PS. They won 9 to 6 against the Florida Marlins.

Pet peeve - Fake frienster profiles

In friendster, I have the ability to see who viewed my profile. And I noticed that several "women" profile viewed my profile. Upon looking at their profile, it is so obvious that they are fake because they only have one very sexy picture, they are all like 25 years old and they try to direct you to click on their supposedly "other profile" in another webpage that is really a porn site requiring you to pay. Two of the fake profile even have the same picture in them. So obvious that it's a ploy to entice men to go to these naughty webpages. This is so very very very wrong and annoying. I am a gay man so what do I need looking at naughty pictures of fake bitches? Unfortunate, this is the reality of internet chat rooms or social networking websites. There will always be fake profile operated by "robots" "bots" or "spam". Sigh...ggrrr...

Pro choice or Pro life?

To be honest, I am for both.

I respect the woman's choice to carry the child or not. After all it is her body and she will be mostly affected by the pregnancy for 9 months. And you have to think about situations where there is rape involved. How can one subject the woman for 9 months to carry the child of a rapist? How about in instances where genetic testing clearly shows the child to be a very sickly one and will most likely not survive? Why suffer for 9 months when the child will die anyway? These are strong argument for the pro choice camp.

Now I am also for pro life too. And not at all for religious reason as most pro life would argue. I am for the choice of the child. If the woman has a choice to carry the child or not, then the child should have the choice to live or not. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Well, not the best analogy but you get my meaning. And in most instances the woman made the decision to have sex without contraception, so she should stand by the result of that carnal pleasure.

So what is my middle ground for this? If the unborn child is healthy, I advocate for the woman to carry it and give up for adoption upon being born. There are plenty of good parents unable to conceive who can give that child a good life. More so if the pregnancy is the result of consenting unprotected sex between the man and woman. The man should compensate the woman for the duration of the pregnancy and give up the child for adoption if neither party wants it. That way, both parties get to be responsible for their actions.

Too cheap to go to the movies?

Have a tight budget? Or just too cheap to see the current movies in the theater? The answer for you is Most of the movies are there. One of the caveat is you have to have a fast computer with fast (cable or at least DSL) connection. Cause if you don't, your wait is not worth it. And also, sometimes the picture quality is not that good. But one can't complain when it is free... right?

Marty Thomas is my friend

Marty Thomas is an openly gay Broadway celebrity who is currently in Xanadu. I sat next to him at dinner in one of those Atlantis Gay cruises to Mexico. He was one of the performer/entertainer hired by Atlantis to entertain the gay passengers. Very talented individual he is. I recently emailed him in MySpace and requested to be in his friend's list and he accepted much to my delight.

Overkill - opening the door

I know it is nice and friendly to hold the door open for somebody behind you as you enter a door or to open the door to let someone pass by. Specially to the elderly, sick, pregnant or anybody who will obviously have trouble opening the door themselves. But some people take it to the extreme. Even if the person is many steps behind, they would still wait there and hold the door. Even if the person is a very able bodied individual clearly capable of opening the door for themselves, they would still go out of their way to hold open or open the door. I say OVERKILL with the politeness.

Pet peeve - claiming gym machines

Some guys in the gym thinks they still have claim on a particular machines after leaving it. They may have just left it briefly for the water fountain, other machines or to chat with their friends but the fact that they left the machine, it should be free for anybody to use. They would still have the audacity to come back and tell you that they were using it and expect you to give it up for them. What jerks.

what's wrong with these people???

I was driving and about to cross the intersection with a green light. This bitch with big sunglass while gabbing away in her cell phone did not notice the "don't walk" light on her end. She was about to cross on my path so I gave her a quick honk to alert her that I am there. As I pass by her, she yelled "fuck you!!" What is wrong with these people??? She was in the wrong and yet she had the audacity to yell profanity at me? What a big #@*@!!! Seriously, she made me so angry if i were a passer by and she needed me to save her life, I would let her die...

Wimbledon, the conclusion

Unlike the French Open, Wimbledon was a mix emotions of elation and disappointment. As I mentioned in my earlier blog, I was happy Maria Sharapova and Novak Djokovic got eliminated in the 2nd round but on the other hand, I was sad for Andy Roddick's early exit. Now that Wimbledon came to its conclusion, I still have mix emotions about it. I was saddened that Roger Federer lost in the finals to Rafael Nadal. Rafa is not such a bad guy. Better him than anybody else to beat Roger I suppose. I was also saddened by the defeat of the Bryan Brothers in the semifinals of the Gentlemen's Doubles. But each of the Bryan Brothers were in the finals of the mix doubles with Bob Bryan and Samantha Stosur edging over Mike Bryan and Katarina Srebotnik to take the Mix doubles championship. That is at least a good consolation for them not winning the Gentleman's doubles. The news that brought me much satisfaction is the Williams Sisters each advancing to the Ladies finals with Venus winning over Serena. And they both took the ladies doubles championship too. Good work gurls...
Next stop, the US Open.
