15. I hate the sound of my voice.
16. I hate it so much that I systematically avoid contact with anything that has my voice recorded on it, especially my voicemail inbox at work...
17. I went to a gay pride event for the first time this year...
18. ...and it was one of the BEST days of my life.

21. My *other* favorite color is black.
22. I have prophetic dreams.
23. Most people don't believe that I do, obviously.

38. ...but I'll keep looking. ;)
39. I may be gay, but I love Margaret Cho with every fiber of my being.
40. I somehow manage to hurt myself at my cubicle EVERY DAY. (paper cuts, banging my knee on the desk, stubbing my toe, etc.)
41. I'd love a boy who doesn't give a flying fuck about what other people say.
42. My friends are my 2nd family. They've been there for me through a lot of stuff.

48. I really want a boy who will have random, but thoughtful conversations with me at odd times during the day.

50. I procrastinate.
51. If it were up to me, gay people would run the country.
52. I have lots of rainbows at my cubicle at work, but no one has figured out I'm gay.
53. My friends & I will laugh at the most un-funny things. (last week we cracked up at the word "lozenge")
54. I love how people who criticize gays will make the most unusual claims ( this one time, at pride parade, this guy from one of those Christian groups said gay people urinate on each other during sex)
55. I'm way too shy to make friends, but I try.

there you have it. I might finish it and add 45 more in another journal.

I think boys in skirts

I think boys in skirts intrige everybody. There's a group of boys at my school who put on skirts every year for a yearbook photo. And they're the straightest boys I know. It's kinda funny. Nice list btw.

I wish guys did that at my school. The closest thing we have is a photo of the senior class trip to Europe, where there were guys in kilts from the trip to Scotland.

a little star out of the night sky
and hold it close to my heart
and pretend it's you)
