BEACH SIZED BALLS

Here we go again....I've fought worst monsters.

 I won't be drawing this out, but the Mistress along with my boss, and the whole visual structure of the company all the way up to the creative director,  who originally hired me, along with a number of other positions all across the company have been let go...3700 in total. Just about everyone I know in the company is gone. This is the last time I will work for the company. Especially after finding out after the lay offs,  that the CEO of Macy's Inc. Jeff Gennette gave himself and another 5 top brass millions of dollars in bonuses and stock.  Appalling and disgusting considering business is down,  and no stores are making plan. People just are not shopping for clothing. Not to be outdone, I made sure I got all my vacation time and other personal days, and my severance,  which the store manger was not going to give me the full amount,  since I had been laid off once before, but returned just by one day over the time frame to start everything from scratch,  but my HR manger had it changed since I returned over by one day. Oh.... I got the severance, after kindly mentioning the name of a certain other manger that left under the current store manger, for,  oh shall me say "harassing  behavior."  Monday I was called with my paperwork to come in and sign for my full 15 years of severance!!! I'm not to be trifled with after giving them my hard and creative work all these years.

Yesterday I already got a call to come back in other capacities, which is a slap in my face considering my work skills and talent.... which I gladly declined and I told them I will not be taken for granted, and refuse to work any longer with a company so a CEO can get himself and other top brass  million dollar bonus's. I have also already called my  financial guy to dump for my stock in that company, and hold it,   and then combine the money from my pension plan I also had, to reinvest into other stock that is making money.

But don't worry about me dears....I'm will be fine and will now look forward to my next new chapter whatever that will be.  Daddy Warbucks already wants me to move to Europe. But all I know, it will be a cold day in hell that I shop in any store Macy's Inc owns again.

Don't fuck with me Fellows.

THE GAYS

You may ask why us gays endorse and don't mind wearing a mask for long periods....

MONDAY HAS GONE TO THE BIRDS

Here we are on Monday again.....it's been a hell of a end of week,  and weekend. I have the feeling I'll be going back to bed before long, I'm exhausted. It wasn't from sex either I can tell you. There was some issues with the condo units this weekend that had the fire alarms in the common halls and vestibules going off and on all weekend...talk about maddening. I also got some bad news on a couple fronts...seems the pandemic just keeps getting better. I have work getting ready to start at the pied de terre soon too, so that will be fun. When it rains it pours. By weeks ends, I'm taking another five day get away to the mountains. My good friend will be there by himself, so it should be a nice peaceful time, and will give me some time to commune, before my other good friend shows up. I've not been to the glampground during the week yet, but I hear harldy anyone is there...I so need some pool time to rewind.  But worry not, my next covid pamphlet will be hitting very soon, and just in time. And was it me or did I now hear that  our dictator was looking into how to get himself on Mt Rushmore??!?!?!?!?! What does he think he's done to be on Mt Rushmore with such other past great Presidents? And is it even appropriate to have a etching of a big fat ass on the mountain, when the rest are faces? Oh silly me, I forgot, that is his good side. I think we need some birds today...some stunning birds.... you know I can't resist a bird in any shape or form.


Today it is predicated the temps are going to sky rocket again.... as we enter the hottest weeks of summer...back into the high 90's again. In terms of  coping with this heat, why not embrace the late great bouffant- haired country music diva Tammy Wynette as a role model?

SUMMER EATING

Bread baking continues. Three loaves. One for my neighbor for the fresh eggs she gives me. This just might be the best loaf of challah bread I ever made, followed by the biggest tea biscuits I've made.
The trip to the farmers market gave me some wonderful fruit. I could eat cherries all day. The strawberries and blueberries will be great for breakfast and the squash and cocktail tomatoes will be diced up and added to a bow tie cold pasta dish, mixed with various fresh herbs and a olive oil dressing with minced garlic and fresh grated cheddar and parmesan cheeses.

I love summer eating...no hot cooking for me. And the watermelon this season had been most excellent.

MEANWHILE.....

Never a dull moment at the Casa.

FROM THE CANDY SHOP


This week in the Candy Shop, is why yes....another addictive piece of the Latin mens variety, just not so far south. This big lug really gets me with his dark,  sweet doe eyes.  That is one thing to stuck me in right away, yes it is. This eye candy, Alberto Heragui, is in from Mexico City, where he is a health and nutritionist coach, loves staying fit,  and his first love is travel. I first became aware of Alberto on the Aronik Swim website where I get all my square cuts. And, god, does he fill those suckers out!!!! The man has got it going on. He's a real handsome man, and he has an incredible body. I think he probably spends a lot of time working on that bod, although,  I have a long list of other activities I think I could tempt him with if the opportunity should arise! Enjoy his handsomeness, marvel on that manscape, take in that face, those lips, run your hands over those pecs...tweak the basket.... and get sweaty over the display. Alberto invites you to take a swim. He doesn't bite...he just wants to play with us.....

I'm feelin' a little festive today....so how's about a Candy Shop staple, and one of my favorite drag routine songs. Alberto- he's a one stop, gotcha hot, makin' all the panties drop kind of guy......

IN THREE WORDS

Each week, I'll share a weekly guest with you all,  
and you tell me in only three words what comes to mind.

In three words...
Kylie Minogue

And our Galactic Goddess has returned to save 2020 with new music and beyond...not to mention in time for Happy Hour!!!! At least something good is coming out of this year.

GRANDE DAME...JIMBO

As soon as I saw Jimbo the first time, I was in love!!!! Jimbo is one of the talented queens who manages to bring everything he enjoys and loves-  clowning, drag, performing, make up artist, set design and costume design into one and bring it to the stage. The resumé of this Victoria,  British Columbia queen,  and trained clown Jimbo — which includes building a giant, 700-kilogram plywood peach for Kaleidoscope Theatre’s production of James and the Giant Peach and contributing to the glammy esthetic of Atomic Vaudeville’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch and The Rocky Horror Picture Show — makes him suitably prepared for a queen and to get on Canada's Drag Race. He's always been on my radar, his looks always surprise and shock...never disappoints, and can deliver a performance you won't forget. Over the years Jimbo credits being friends with artists of a great skill level that he was able to put together something really impressive that really showcased his skills, talents and performances and what he is able to bring to the his acts and eventually to the drag race competition. Like Manchester in England, the Victoria drag scene is so diverse and so cool, because the performers and artists in this town have this incredible drive to showcase their art, and Jimbo does just that.

Jimbo is a well-known personality around Victoria — as is James Insell himself. His quasi-legendary Chinatown studio and home, is where he creates costumes for  myriad film and theatre productions is just as famous as his personality, and in April he put his skills to work in another area: making masks in an array of designs to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Jimbo, his partner Brady Taylor, a wig designer, and fashion designer Sarah Runnalls have sold hundreds of their non-medical masks during the pandemic, and have matched every purchase with another mask donation to someone living on the streets in Victoria, to keep all protected, while the money went to the community to help out with other needs. There is some talent on Canada's Drag Race to be sure, but Jimbo is so memorable, so creative, and has such a fun and a not so serious take to drag that's refreshing. He makes me feel like when I was a kid and went to see the circus, And when it's over, you had those feelings of delight at seeing something great and fun. 

I wish him luck on the win.

And can I just say for a minute just how incredibly adorable Jimbo is? Oh yes. .....
Here's Jimbo with his partner  Brady Taylor. Yep. I would totally be the butter between their bread!!!!!!
