Finally Going Straight.

Well Fernando and I didn't make it out of town last weekend. In my infinite wisdom, I accidentally booked the hotel for April 18 and NOT March 18. I didn't realize it until Thursday around 5:00. By that time there wasn't anything available and I let Fern know. We decided to postpone the trip because his sister was in town. Maybe next time!!

My first full week back at the Voice (and yes Kerry & Ivan, I quit Clear Channel)has been extremely busy. The guy who I replaced had so many things screwed up that I've spent all week trying to put out fires and calming down clients. I don't know WHAT he was doing but whatever it was it wasn't good.

Today I went to the dentist to have x-rays taken and molds done of my teeth because I'm getting Invisalign!!! Yes I'm finally going to go straight....or at least my teeth will. I'm excited because I'll have a perfect smile!!! Plus my client gave me a great deal and billed my dental plan from Clear Channel as much as possible. Hell...I have it until the end of the month so I might as well use it.

On a much different note, I have a guest visiting me next weekend. More on this later!!!!!

Another Gay 'Ol Time.

Well on Friday I talked to my sales manager and gave him my notice. He was completely cool with it and asked me to come back on Monday to talk to HR and make that my final day. So everything went fine!!

I left early that day because Cesar and I were heading out to Austin again that afternoon. Traffic was really bad and it took us almost 4 hours to get there. We stayed with Lamont's sister Vicci and had a good weekend. Sleep was a little on the light side but that was ok. On Sunday we went to the March on Austin and I'd never gone to one before. I was amazed at how supportive the residents of Austin are. There were only 2 protesters and they were at the gate to the capitol. We left for home around 5:30 that evening.

On Monday I talked to Derrick in HR and we finalized my termination papers. He said I was rehireable and if I wanted to come back I could. He even said he would change my leave date so I can get paid for the whole month instead of the 2 weeks. How cool was that!!!

So now I've been off all this week and it's been nice. I went to the GLBT Chamber of Commerce dinner last night and I was surprised at the turnout. There were quite a number of people and Cesar and I left that around 9:00. I came straight home, changed and headed out to Crews Inn with Sergio.

Anyhoo things are pretty relaxed right now. I'm going out of town (again) on Friday with Fernando and I'm trying to convince Cesar to go with us or at least meet us. We'll see if I can persuade him.
