I'm feeling  a bit frisky this morning...and these gentlemen are certainly helping.

Black & White Tuesday

It's been a very long time since I posted a Black & White series. For those of you who've been with me a while you may remember that I used to post series like this frequently a few years ago. This morning I was trawling through my own blog and became nostalgic. So I thought I would revisit the B&W genre.

Please enjoy.

Recovering Behr

I'm back home with a fullish tummy, a slight headache, and an outstanding result from the colonoscopy: no polyps! Thanks to everyone who sent me good thoughts and left comments of support. You guys are awesome!

To be honest, the worst part of this experience was the pre-op nurse couldn't quite find a vein for the IV. She kind of dug around in my left hand. She finally ended up putting it in my right wrist (which still hurts). Overall it wasn't as awful as some folks have led me to believe.

My folks picked me up and took me to their house where Mom cooked me eggs and toast. I was starving! When I got home (to my home) I made myself more eggs and toast. I really want a Double-Double from In-n-Out but I need to ease back into the food. Oh and O said if he wasn't having his truck worked on he would bring me the burger! Sweetness!

I don't think I mentioned this before and I'm way too lazy to go check....my parents recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.  Stop and just imagine that for a moment...sixty years with one partner. A lot of ups and a lot of downs but their love is still strong.

That's about all for now. Have a great weekend everyone!

Behr Update

Hey Blather fans....I know it's been a while since I have really shared anything other than "news" stories and pics of my fat ass with Captain America and Thor...so here's a quick update.

It's been a month since I got laid off and I haven't really started looking for a job despite pressure from family and a few friends. This week I'm starting to finally think about it seriously. It's not been easy though considering that everything feels repetitious. For example, last week I logged into the CalJobs site - which is a state government site that allows one to create a resume and search for jobs -statewide - and began creating the online profile. There were some free form sections that I wanted to think about before entering anything. So when I logged in this morning everything I'd already entered was gone and my "profile" didn't exist. Frustrating. 

My former company pays for a third-party career management company for 30 days; I haven't called them and they've called twice and sent a letter. I was dragging my feet because - quite honestly - I'm kind of in the 'anger' stage of this experience. They want to help me "transition" to a new job. Well, goddamn it, I had a job. I know I shouldn't be angry with this third-party company but again it seems like a slap in the face. Anyway, I finally called and maybe it won't be so bad. They'll help critique my resume, which definitely needs help. 

One of the other things I need to do soon is to find a new bank. If you don't remember, I worked for a bank and like an idiot have all of my eggs in their basket: checking, credit card, mortgage, IRA. So I want to open a new account somewhere else so in time I can start paying my bills out of that account and use the existing account for the auto debit of the mortgage payment. I may look to refinance at a lower rate but want to establish a good relationship with the new bank first. 

Here's perhaps the most exciting piece of news: at the end of the week I'm having a colonoscopy! I'm so thrilled. NOT. Okay let's be honest...lately I've been bottoming for O, mainly because I don't want to lose him and he is always horny. But to have a camera stuck up my ass? Not my idea of how to spend a Friday afternoon. Deep down I'm afraid a problem will be found.

Other than....I haven't had much excitement. The days still blur into one another. 

Leave a comment and tell me what is new with you...come on...show the Behr some love!!

Marvel SuperHeroes at DLR

If you visit the Disneyland Resort (DLR), especially the Innovations attraction in Tomorrowland, you have the opportunity to "meet" Captain America and Thor.

Captain America was very personable. Thor is fucking cute. I'd do them both.
