Well not bad a day. Mom and Dad had gone away for the life I could remember, couldn’t even remember. Its only now, I remember. But when Mom rang me yesterday, to wish me well, or more so she was disappointment that I had not heard from me. heheeh. My sis popped down. Told her all about Pride yesterday. hahhah. As I said, It was the most best Pride I ever been to since being with my ex’s Pride in 2010.

Diary 27th June 2015 – Gay Pride 2015

Well today was the Annual Gay Pride Parade in Dublin’s City Center. Today as I haven’t been popular well regout wise like last year. So I wasn’t gonna let that get in the way of celebrations. This year’s Pride was slightly different on my side, in that, it was more PLANNED out.

I was due to attend 3 Meetups:

  1. Pre-Pride Brunch
  2. Pride Parade
  3. Drinks After Pride

So I headed to The Larder(Review here). So then we had a nice lunch and brunch and talk, I seam to be the only guy dressed up to the nines. I had expected judging from Pavel the organiser of the Meetup, that I would be welcomed whether I be wearing Pink or whatever, Yet everyone dressed up as if it were a normal day. hahaah.

So then we all headed onto the Parade itself. I doned my Boa, however he kept falling apart, so I had to stow away my baby. awwww. We continued on walking. Bumped into Mike too dressed up as Robin. ahahaha. Then onwards to the actual parade. We got lost. Craig and I were lost, didn’t know where they were. So in the end, we all met up and found each other. heheeheh. The Parade started in ernest. heheheh

Then the next meetup was at 6pm, so I wasn’t gonna be hanging around Pride After Party for a few hours. So I headed to the Outhouse. I along the route bumped into Patrick. So I was chatting with Patrick along with Manuel from the DIGs group. He wasn’t at the Pre-Parade Brunch. He joined us at the Parade. So I headed onto the Outhouse, where I came across various men, and some women and Trans people. Great INCLUSION vibe. I was chatting and chatting. and eating a glorious brown bread, butter, tomato(puree possible or squashed tomatoe) and Olive oil. mmmmm. It was heaven. I kept helping myself to em.

So then I headed for my next and more than likely last event of the day. I saw Pavel who also organsied this meetup. We waited for Gabriel, whom I hadn’t met at all. He was inside getting a drink for himself.

Diary 20th June 2015

Still wandering what to do. I was suppose to go to the STI Screening event int he Outhouse also the Marry Me! event hosted by Dublin Gay Men’s Chorus. However with my feeling of being down, in the way, I didn’t bother. However, my sis called down to me to do a bit of downloading, so with that in mind, I got up let her in. And decided to head to the next event, being Gear Ireland’s PRIDE event. I was still apprehensive in what to wear. So I just picked two items of clothing. hahhaah. Running Shorts and a Tank top. I left my sis to her own accordance. I then headed off. With somewhat nervous as hell. That said I went into Fibbers where the month event is held, however I went to the wrong one. I went into the right one. I was charged €5 to get in. After 10 it would be €10. So I was bang on time. There wasn’t much people around. That said, few hanging around. I eventually got talking to a guy from Brazil but living in Washington DC. Twas lovely. Then to a lassy who was on a Holiday Visa for 90 Days. Pleasure talking to all. I then got talking to a third guy whom told me in a nice way to “take a hike”. As I said my Facebook profile “I know when am not wanted”. The regout I had on, as above described would NOT be sports gear. So as I said to my sis earlier on, it looks like the one that you’d have to spend a bomb on. Which clearly I don’t have. The shorts I had on were Running, and says I to the guy “aint’ Running not a shorts” his reply It ain’t “sexual” enough. Says I to meslef, that’s my bday in Gear outta the window. According tot he guy on any NORMAL night, I would have NOT got in. Today is a PRIDE Event. So for “inclusiveness” reasons, they literally allowed anyone in. But on a normal Gear night, I would NOT have been allowed in.

Diary 12th September 2014

Now, as I had yet to sleep, I just continued my day. I was looking at Tonight with Vincent Browne. There was a quite interesting debate on being debated. Should the media be interested in every minor detail. E.g The alleged nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence. Like is there a need for the public to know such information. Eg that Vincent gave was the spat that the Health Minster(Varadkar) and the Taoiseach were having Vincent’s point was do we need to know every single little thing. Or as he puts it “Tits for tats”.

Then I started the tidy up of the place. Well more so making further room. I now have a bit of room for visitors(WHAT VISITORS, no one ever goes near a Hepatitis B guy – I’m leaving out my Family, cause obviously they come down. hahaha).

Then I got a call from O’ Farrell to know plans for tonight. I was intended on going to A film, of which I wasn’t sure which. I was to leave at around 7 – half 7. So instead, during my  tidy up, I found my bicycle pump. So I used that to inflate my babes, which some sadly are not staying, but NEVERTHELESS. And of course I was inflating my new exercise ball, that I got in Lidls last week.

On my way, Maureen rang me for a chat. However throughout the call, I couldn’t’ hear her. She has this habbit of holding the fire, as if it were on “fire” kinda thing. I got increasingly frustrated. She has been using a mobile phone for over 10 years.  So I just cut the convo  short. Then while I was on the phone, I had gotten a message from my mate Todd, wanting a bit of company for a meal or something. As it happens, I was very close. However due to communications errors etc., we weren’t able to meetup.

So eventually, I arrived at the Outhouse. I encountered Gerry the teacher. Haven’t seen him in ages. heeheh. I also encountered Noel of only whom I had met around Pride festivities.  There were also 2 HOT Indian guys who clearly hadn’t any manners or either that they were VERY very shy. More than likely the latter. Then of course O’ Farrell himself was there. O’ Farrell had asked me if I had sent him a picture of me in my undies or something like that. This brought up in a derogatory sense, as they have nothing better to talk about. I’m talking about the Pride Festivities that was held this year. It was marred in controversy(well in my books anyways). Seriously guys, WOULD YOU’s EVER SHUT THE HELL UP ABOUT MY. You talk the talk of letting go the past, NOW PRACTISE WHAT YOU PREACH. You’s just have to gonna get use to it. They do it in the States, in fact a friend of mine, who was at the same pride as me this year NEVER got any STICK. NOW WTF WITH THAT. I shall be continued to express my sexuality. LIKE IT or LUMP IT. Then low and behold Ronan was there. He showed me pics of himself as Wolverine. And by jasues he’s the splitting image of him, WITHOUT any Photoshopping. While he was browsing for the pics of Wolverine, he probably accidentally showed me a pic of a large cock with a ring on it. That was hot. hahaaha. Patrick was there to provide a few laughs. ahhahaha. Bernard hahahah like he was sitting in a Dracula sttyle armchair. heheheeh. I was introduced by O’ Farrell to Cathal. Very nice bloke he is. His first time. I was amazed by the amount of ppl that was in attendance. Oh and not forgetting David. Afterall I had only seen him yesterday. hahaahha

As I was leaving for the film, I was getting the feeling of NOT to go, that I was having such a great time. However when the remark of my regout was made, I just had to get out. Even poor Noel taught he had said something. I said no that I was going to a film. So with that in mind, I set about going to the cinema to see Guardians of the Galaxy(Review here). However when I arrived, it wasn’t meant to be. As the times were different. Perhaps I misread it or whatever. But this has happened in the past. So I went to see The Guest(Review here).

Then after the film, I headed home. Now as I didn’t have cooking oil for my pasta tonight, I needed it badly. So I got it in my local garage. Imagine for  1.5ltr a small feckin’ of a bottle, 4.10. Sure Tescos charge that amount for their BIG version and its a branded one too.

Diary 25th July 2014

Well after a great sleep yesterday, I got up with a slightly happier mood,(I have Patch to thank – heheeh). I got up, with a view of doing the News Bulletins from July 24th and free up space. However it wasn’t to be. I showered. Getting rid of all the hair, that I had let overgrown over several days to a possibly week. So then I headed on with my first errand of getting my haircut. There was an auld lad in front of me. I vaugley recognised him. When it was confirmed he’s an accountant for Jim Markeys across the road, I remember seeing him there alrite. The accountant customer was asked what he does for a Friday ngiht. His idea, is very simpley and elegant. Pub then onto another pub, for music and the he simply hops into a taxi. Twas great to see a bubbly guy(barber). We remembered dear old Kevin, Who was my manager in Spar in Drumcondra where I used to work, when I was a kid for pocket money. heheeh. He even remembers Don – my nemesis. Wow, talk of bringing up my past. It was amazing. My birthday of this year has brought up some happy BUT painful memories. Ain’t that abnormal. So with such a happy face(for once – at least)

So then I headed back thinking I had a bit of time, but as it happens, I didn’t have that much time. It was my plan to see How to Train Your Dragon 2(Review here), as the last time,So then I popped my head into the Outhouse, literally. As the film was starting at 6pm. I saw Brendan S. Great to see him. Then I headed onto the Cinema, for my peaceful time. heheehe.  I was late for the beginning. But as it happens, I wasn’t as late as I thought I was. It was really effective alrite as I said in my review.

I then headed back to the Outhouse where I was greeted by Dave. I had hoped to get a sandwich. However, Dave explained  that there aint no Lettuce and JUST Tomato. So I jsut left it and got my Green Tea of Raspberry. Ohmmmmm So scrumptiouslioucious. as I don’t take their Tea anymore(cause I first keep forgetting to bring my soya and they don’t have it and secondly my wish of weight loss and not only that the discovery that Soya brings upon Man Boobs as mentioned by one of my FB Mates). I had asked Dave, that can it be done, whereby I bring my OWN green tea, and they just give me the hot water. He was a bit apprehensive about it. So he just recommended that I ask Joe. So we just left it at that. Now, as I don’t take their tea for Men’s Night, which they get for free(some arrangement in advance is made), I had to bring my Green Tea in a Paper cup. Which I didn’t mind. So ownards I headed on up. Great to see a lively bunch. heeheheh. Patrick, Brendan S, Brendan O’ F, Eddie, Ken(who left shortly after I arrived), Peadar, Bernard, Ollie and a few others I couldn’t recall their names, BUT obviously recognsied. Patrick brought up a story he heard on Liveline(Joe Duffy on RTE Radio 1). Whereby he heard a woman from Donegal. A guy went into a bar in none other than a Budgie Smuggler, from what I gather is a swimwear or underwear that only covers ONE side of your cock. Something like that. But it ain’t what I thought. Eitherway it was featured on the Liveline. Shame I didn’t see the guy. hahahah. mmmmm. So then Brendan O’ F later on told me that his mother was asking for me. I can’t tell you how happy that made me feel. The feel that ANOTHER mother was asking for me. heheeh. Its kinda weird come to think of it that my mother asked me to send her love to all when I was at the Andre Rieu Satellite Concert last Saturday. Brendan S, then told me that he put O’F and myself and whoever else on a Restricted List. Its a feature on FB. I never got the jist of it. He put it in lamens terms. This means that if he posts anything public, then we’ll get the post. He was under the da illusion that he posts too much. He was told something of this. I told him that that’s wrong. and they’s nothing but a lier. I told him, that my sis posts BUCKETS(which I don’t mind – obbbbbbv), but that he hardly posts at all. I have him on the Notifications.

So then onwards to my next film. I headed this time with O’ Farrell to see Transformers: Age of Extinction(Review here). Before we went in, O’ Farrell asked me which Hepatitis, I had, whether it was B or C. I explained that I contracted it along time ago in Romania. BUT, that it got “activated”, when I “drank myself to death” a few years ago while I was enduring  Homophobia. I used drink as a coping mechanism. NOT that it didn’t work. However that’s another story for another day. So then we headed in. We unfortunately had some unpleasant experience. There was a family of god only knows how many. They were all UNDER 12(considering the film was 12A Certification provided by IFCO). The Mom n Dad were there. The Dad sat beside me and the Mom down with the kids. They were making noises. As if it wasn’t bad enough the screen in question hadn’t turned on the 3D aspect of the film. IT was all blurry. But getting back to the kids, CLEARLY the film was not suitable for 7 or 8 year old kids. How they got through is beyond me.  I will bring it up with the staff next time I go to the cinema. Brendan had to go out to seek a staff member. The staff member had a talk with the parents and the kids themselves. This didn’t stop one of em throwing somethings at Brendan. He got really mad. Saying “Obey your parents”. I “will have you thrown out of the theatre”. So then we headed on WITHOUT confronting the ill fated family. They should have had a babysitter or if they couldn’t afford or they couldn’t find a babysitter, just do without it. Oh I ain’t letting Cineworld away with it. I will notify the staff and/or Management.

So after some unpleasantness, I left O’ Farrell to Luas and then as I got a bit lost myself I just went towards Capel St., of which I couldn’t find Panti Bar. Kinda weird, as I haven’t been there since last year for Géilí – last year’s Pride Events(2013). I happened to bump into Joe from the Outhouse. Was great to see him. I vaguely recongised Noel Gannon. Which is kinda weird, didn’t think he was that small. But eiterhway,  he didn’t recognise me at all. Joe says to me, Not norm to see me in these parts hahaha. I felt like spilling my guys about my dear Mother(Romania), but ietherway, was great to see him. He made a suggestive move to suggest I was looking for a bit of actions, not Panti I’ll be looking for action. hahahaah. I had one Vodka & DASH of Coke. Twas lovely. Slightly stronger than what you’d get in the George. Another gay bar.

So then I headed on towards home. I was looking for Barber that Frank my barber had mentioned. On the way, I happened to come across an Internet Cafe or at least what used to be. I recall the days, on a Sunday, whereby I’d sneak out via lies to my folks to go to the Internet Cafe on a Sunday when me Pops would be looking at the match. It was a ritual with me. I used to go their to print stuff off from Ros na Run and of course to surf as well. Now in those days we had the 56K modem(ahhhh memories), there was no such things as Facebook, NOT even Bebo had existed when I was growing up.

It has been announced that all 116 passengers Algeria Airlines all have perished.

US President Barack OBama, has hit back at Ireland’s Tax Inversion. Ireland’s Corporate Tax is 12.5%. From my understanding, Obama is stating that US Companies who come over here, are actually paying at Irish Rate NOT the home company’s country. It first started when it was found that Apple(Being an American company) was actually paying IRISH Tax Rate NOT their own country’s rate.

Diary 9th July 2014

As it was so warm out, I decided to dress in my shorts and obv gay colors as in Neon Pink Tank top n Navish shorts. On the way to the Dole ie the Post Office, as failed yesterday. A car beeped at me and called me faggot. Now I took it with a grain of salt, it did get to me for a second, however I then remembered Kevin Costner’s quote from Man of Steel. In that he states that “People are afraid of what they don’t understand”. I alwyas quote this to every living human being. It has helped  me in the past and now today.

 

Mom rings me to see of my whereabouts. Now I was on my way home anyways, litteraly I was a stone’s through away from my gaf, when she picked me up. To my surprise she did not utter a single word relating to my regout which I was gobsmacked and to this day, I still am. Its a possibility that she has FINALLY(Perhaps I may be coy or speaking toooo soon) We shall see. Ever since I invited her to the Outhouse for Information Session and of course for the big day in question: The Annual Dublin Gay Pride Parade, I have notice a slight change in her attitude. Again I maybe coy, I won’t wanna dampen spirits or keep my hopes up or whatever. But as I say to all my LGBT Allies n Friends, I am inviting all my homophobes for one word: REFERENDUM as recommended by The Politics of Pride, Dublin Pride Event. My homophobes says they AIN’T a homophobe. Well Prove it is what I say. By coming along to the Outhouse or whatever.

 

Had thoughts of a woman screaming  at my door by following me n preaching crap of hell being cured etc etc. me calling da cops.

 

I then headed onto my sis to give her the food that Mom gave me. Had a nice grand auld cuppa tea etc.,

 

Then I headed on to meet up wit Todd. Twas great to see him. Hadn’t seen him ages. We went to see Mrs. Brown’s Boy’s: D’Movie. Review here. Todd had the most heartiest laugh in the cinema. Twas brill. After the movie, I asked him about Garth Brooks controversy and said he’s glad they ain’t putting the concerts on as Aiken Promotions in his opinion defrauded Gareth and the legal system. As my friend says Joby says “Law is the Law”. I fooly agree with both Joby and Todd. In that they’s just got too greedy etc., But more over, that the Law is the Law. 3 Concerts has been played ie One Direction.

 

I also told him of my “friend” and his homophobic ways relating to my regout on Pride Day and the such negativity I got from him. His reaction was not what I expected. I’d slap him him in da face. Cause I mentioned to Todd, the three hurtful things that were said. “You should be ashamed of yourself”; when the friend was struggling to say that he’s “ashamed of being around me”; “apologise to the Outhouse”. He even said “I’ll slap you if you apologies to the Outhouse.” I then said to him, that I’ve no intention. As I said to him: and to the friend: “I have WRONGED NO ONE”. Shocked n appalled to learn u cannot kiss in da outhouse . I did explain to him, that it is in the safety of the patrons, if “Pervs” comes along. He took it as a joke. Then we were having our drinks. Oh by the way, did I forget to mention, that Todd treated me to drinks. Even though I asked him. hahaha. He had a French Martini and I had my 2 Santa Digna from Spain. Which is a Rosé from Spain. Twas lovely and sweet. We met Cousy from India on our travels. Todd pointed out the three of us have 1 thing in common. In that we’s all immigrants. Todd(USA), Coush(India) and I(Romania). On the way home, to his gaf, Todd mentions that Cillain Murphys brother is gay and saw him in the Front Lounge on Pride Day. On the way home, we saw a truck wit funny looking things on its front and was explained to clean tracks of the Luas.

 

NEWS

 

It is now perceived that Gareth Brooks WANTS to reconsider in playing in Ireland. Its of my personal opinion as that of my friend too, that as my other mate on Facebook says “Law is the law”. The Promoters wanting to change things etc., etc., or use BULLY boy tactics. 

 

Brazil SHOCKING exit out of the FIFA World Cup of 7-1 to Germany. Loads of World record were broken. Like several goals within minutes of the game.
