Happy Labia Day!

I love my friends. They teach me so many fun things.

I mentioned in a previous post about my friends’ obsessions with labias, poo, and vaginas. In another world, this would be annoying, but with my friends it’s just silly banter. There’s nothing wrong with that, is there? I don’t think so.

So today is Labia Day.

December 25th is Vaginismas (apparently it’s a real disease, but again, the obsession kicks in.)

And our favorite song is to the tune of “I Wanna Know What Love Is” by Foreigner, but sung by Cher.

I wanna know what a labia iiiyyyaaaaass
I wantchyou to show meeeeaaahhhh
I wanna feeel what a labia iiiyyyaaaaass
I wantchyou to SHOW Meeeaaahhhhh

So, Happy Labia Day, everyone.

My social calendar has been quite full this weekend.

I decided to stay home this Labor Day and relax. But then the Evites started pouring in… a cookout here, a party there, a night out here… it all adds up to a very active, but overall very fun weekend.

Friday night I went to my friend Ricardo’s new apartment and made dinner for him. He had previously lived in a tiny studio and decided he was too cramped there, so he found a much larger studio in the same building. He wanted to celebrate and have some people over. I arrived early and made some pasta and a quick sauce that I whipped together with red, green, yellow and orange peppers, garlic and oregano. Yum. 🙂 Then when the rest of the group arrived we headed over to Sidetrack, which was PACKED, so my stay there wasn’t too terribly long, and I was home by 1 am.

Saturday I finally caught up on some much-needed sleep, then later I headed over to my friend Dave’s for a cookout. I’ve known Dave since 1993. He was one of my very first gay friends. He lived in Racine, which isn’t too far from Kenosha, WI. He and his partner Andy have a lovely condo in Lake Bluff, which is right smack dab in the middle of Abbot Labs country. In fact, he lives right across the street from their headquarters. Anyway, I don’t get to see him very often, so I look forward to the chances to see him. Also there was another old friend, Scott, who I have known for almost just as long. It was great to catch up with old friends, retell old stories (and share them with other people who hadn’t heard them before.) I also met a really lovely lesbian couple, who were a lot of fun. I need more lesbian friends. Hell, I need more girl friends. I really enjoy hanging out with them sometimes.

Sunday, another sleep catch-up day, then to my friend Steve’s in Oak Park for another cookout. This one was much bigger, but just as much fun. We spent hours singing commercial jingles and TV show themes, and just basic eating, drinking and chatting. (No booze for me, it was too damn hot out today.)

Then tonight my friend Jeremy, who I went camping with, had a get-together at his place, before we headed over to Chicago’s newest gay bar, Crew.

So tomorrow I plan on sleeping in AGAIN, doing some long-overdue laundry, and seeing what they day brings me.

I wish every weekend was a 3-day weekend. 🙂
