I made some Spontanous Plans this past weekend and got a flight down to Phoenix to visit my friend. I worked Friday at the library and got alot accomplished work wise and really enjoyed that. Then I headed to Lunch at an oriental resturant with my friend Roger. After this i headed to the airport. For the first time Since 9/11 I wasn’t searched from top to bottom. I was soo expecting to be searched since I had bought my Plane ticket on such short notice. It was nice only having to go through the standard security. The past couple times I had to open my laptop and turn it on .. as well as my video camera. Then they went completely through all of my bags that I had. And after that they would proceed to pat me down. But not this time. I got there early so I went to the Wasatch Brew/Pub and had me some hot wings and a couple screw drivers. When I got on the plane I kept hitting my head on the ceiling. It was the smallest plane I had ever been on. I had to pee really bad right after take off. But since the isles were soo small I had to wait until the crew had finished serving drinks. When I went to go to the bathroom I could barely fit in the tiny compartment. It was worse then being stuffed in a closet or trunk. I had to bend my keens and cock my head sideways just to fit in the damn thing. I don’t think anyone could ever join the Mile high club in those bathrooms 😉
After landng and being picked up I started to realize how cracked out my friends were. Boy did I have an interesting weekend in store for me. They had some friend over that they didn’t want to know they were boyfriends .. and told me the hole scenario of what to tell him if he asked me anything about those two … like they didn’t move to phoenix togther (which they did) and things like that. Once I had gotten to their house and they had started chatting on gay.com I started getting anxious from sitting there. So, I had me a couple strong nasty screwdrivers (all they had was cheap vodka). Then, I talked Devin into taking me over to Charlies, a gay western bar there in Phoenix – http://www.charliesphoenix.com/ . Even though it was very early on there were alot of people (it was around 9 PM). I walked around the bar and drank like a fish. I talked to a few people. Some I couldn’t understand what they were saying due to the thick accents.
Around midnight or so I started talking to a really cool and cute guy. He was one of the "Men of Charlies – http://www.menofcharliesphotos.com " . We had a few drinks then started hanging out with his friends and had alot more drinks before the night was over. As soon as my beer was halfway gone they would have another one in my other hand. Personally, I am used to drinking maybe 4 Utah beers in a night which are 3.2 %. But down at charlies I bet I drank at least 12 beers … and they have 6% beer. So, needless to say with the beer and the vodka I had been drinking I was pretty damn trashed. I ended up staying the night at Robbies place and got some good sleep.
I made it back to devinas around noon on saturday. Devin hadn’t slept but 20 minutes since wednsday at this point. I hung out at his house until around 4 or 5 ish when we attempted to go eat at Boston Market. It was a sad attempt by my friends to eat. They were wayy too cracked out to be even out in the public. Then we headed back to their house where they continued to be cracked out. I decided I didn’t want to stay and watch their crazy antics and so I asked devin if I could borrow his car. He let me so I headed out for a night on the town.
I went down to the Biltmore mall and had some coffee there. It was nice and relaxing and just what I needed after being around the crackheads. I sat there and drank my Coffee while listining to some live music. After this I decided to head out to the bars agian even though it was very early. I went to charlies hoping I would run into Robbie agian. They were line dancing there so it was quite fun to watch them. They had .75 bud lights when I got there so I had two of them. After a while of walking around there I headed over to Rosco’s a local gay sports bar. I had a couple beers there and played some pool with a few guys. We lost the pool match. Then I headed back to Charlies. I wandered around the bar for a while then I spotted Robbie. I went over and chatted with him then we started drinking some more (I was milking my beers that night) We ended up hanging outside chatting with the bartender for the rest of the night .. well until around 4 AM. Then we headed back to his place agian.
I headed back to Devin’s around noon the next day since I had his car and at some point had to get to the airport. We sat around his house for a bit and chatted. Then we headed to soup-or-salad to try and get some food down us. After this they took me to the airport and I was on my way back to SLC. I made it home around midnight very tired and wore out from the weekend. Quite the weekend it was too. Anyways I will attach a few photos from the trip. But, I didn’t take all too many this time.
