|Ok, so life sucks sometimes
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST! I HATE MY JOB
Ok, feeling a little better after that. Not alot, but a little. Ok, where do I start? Well, I'm 20, I live in Oswego, and I never update this fucking thing, but I'm going to try. So, Dan and I are trying to sell this big, overstated pink elephant of a mausoleum we call home. Were willing to take a bit of a loss because we want to move to this GREAT CO-OP in Syracuse. Would be nice to live in a city again....this is so fucking RURAL, and not in a good old fashioned CT rural, but more of a trailer park hick sort of way, and that isnt my scene at all! Plus, a 20's condo would be snazzy! I'm very very excited, even if I do hope the Lowes in Oswego blows up before tomorrow morning. HATE it!!!! Paint Department blows, hate facing product all damn day and being the only person who knows how to use a fucking ladder for downstocking, which is annoying....I mean, do we really need to have literally 300 69cent brushes at a time? are we expecting some kind of mad run on them? NO! its just to keep me from ever having 2 seconds to enjoy myself
CHRIST, MUST GET NEW JOB

|I never update
Ok, Oswego may be architectually charming, but the gay boys of Oswego are a really sick, queeny insestuous bunch, all of whom dont seem to even remotely want to deal with ANYONE outside of there little set, I mean, who do they think they are? Caroline Astor? I mean, I live in a beautiful, large, tastefully decorated house, I'm good looking and funny, I have a long term boyfriend so its not like im about to fuck my way threw there little society. Anyhow, the reason I'm cranky is because after I went threw and emailed basically every queen in Oswego on Myspace, about half of them have read my message, yet none have gotten around to sending it back. I also noticed that there friends list is crowded with basically all the same people. It looks like a drama vortex like nothing CT has EVER seen!

|SO, life in General
My name is Geoff Webster! I live in Oswego NY!
Ok, fine, I've lived here for like 3 weeks. I happen to live in a massive Eastlake mansion that seems to get messier every time I turn around. If anyone wants to be my live in domestic, please, speak now!
The good news is Dan finally comes home sunday night for good. Equally important, he's bringing me the large sideboard. This makes me happy.
Last night, I ripped the ugly, 80's fabric off the Settee built into the staircase. The original crimson velvet was underneath. Much generalised joy and rejoicing.
I also got a job. I start my training sunday. This makes me happy, cause there paying me 8 bucks an hour, which is damn good up here, I think
I hope a quarter tank of gas will get me to s'cuse and back. Hail Mary, full of Grace.
I need to run the dishwasher again. I spend half my life running the bloody dishwasher.
No matter what I try, the walk it closet seems to get messier and messier. I dont know why. I'm sure dan will rectify this when he gets home.
I am really really fucking broke
I'm almost out of milk
I dont have a cassarole dish
The counters in my kitchen are tile, which is impossable to keep clean, and really low
The kitchen floor is Pergo.
I have a whole room dedicated to the storage of my plates
I like it in there, but its cold
The Upstairs bathroom has a clawfoot tub, I like it in there
It gets very warm in the upstairs bath, I like that too
I'm pretty sure that the back stairs have less steps then the front stairs, there rather scary
I'm going to count them
There are 16 back stairs, 17 front stairs
I, as usual, was right.
I need to rewallpaper the drawing room and get all new furniture for it
The piano vexes me to no end
I like smoking on the second floor balcony better then the first floor porch
I'm going away now

Dan bought a bar in oswego, so were moving there! Fun. Trying to sell the condo. Im working a decent bit, but life is, on the whole, pretty calm. Expect last night! Went ot Pride with Leslie and Shannon. Then, Leslie, Shannon, Joey, Caroline and I all went to joeys house and got drunk and danced alot. Fun. Had to drive leslie to Busnell Towers, she crashed on the couch after puking all over the back seat of the Jetta. Bizzare evening. Dan was mad because I wasnt home to help him get the Land Rover to the shop. Grr. My fault, I forgot. Well, im off....will try and update more!

Life is really calm and placid, if a bit boring. The main excitement is Dan and I are trying to buy a house in the semi-ghetto. On the downside, it was cheaply rehabed by the city, on the upside, its fucking huge! 3 storys, back stairs, and lots of rooms I dont need, including an unfinished third floor/ballroom (someday!) Hopefully, will have good news soon!

Work was unintersting. Dinner Party for Joanne (6a) went well. apartment looked beautiful, much gossip. Went to flea market this morning, dan wouldnt spend 95 dollars fo a 12 person dinner set....dinner plates, salad plates, dessert plates, soup bowls, fruit bowls, cups, saucers, sugar bowl, creamer, and several serving pieces. Grr. Work was boring, as was Rainbow Room. Did dishes when I got home.

|Murders, Opium, and Painters
Leslie and I went to the Cemetary. Opium is fun. the 2 are not nessicarrly coneccted. Were discussing murders and assorted deaths in the town of burlington. How Did Megan Fabrizzios father die? Heart attack? Car accident? Heart attack in a car, leading to an accident? Did that girl who got raped by her brother hack her to pieces and then put her in the trunk or just put her in the trunk? Who knows? Who cares? WE CARE! We also saw these 2 hot guys painting there apartment (forth floor, that building on the corner of gold and main, wityh the pink cement were supposed to think is pink granate but we dont) they were hot and shirtless and painting, so we looked. Fun Fun Fun!

|How to make a Geoffrey Emerson Webster|
1 part anger
3 parts arrogance
3 parts leadership
Add to a cocktail shaker and mix vigorously. Add curiosity to taste! Do not overindulge!
|Power Loss and other such things
Busy Day. Went to beach with Dan and Steven Wolf. Killer Waves. Came home. Cleaned and such. Went to Tisane, was supposed to meet David and give him his gucci glasses. He didnt show. We ended up taking a tour of New Britian with Christopher. Then had lavish dinner at his house while I chose paint chips. Came home to find hartford without street lamps, stop signs, or power in my building. Had to manually open garage door. Not fun. Then climb 11 flights of stairs to reach our overheated apartment. Shortly after settling in bed, power came back, i was happy. Ran the front door key back to Butler-McCook. Going Grocery shopping later. Fun Fun Fun!

Dan and I had a busy day. looked at bar with Kathy. Bar was discustingly dirty, but the second floor apartment was SO ratpack, to die for. I would have to gut, naturally. Lots of the original wallpaper is under the ugly stuff. Beautiful carpeting from the 30's or 40's in the hallway, mint condition....no wear, no fading. Went to Dinner at Mill on the River, got very drunk. later, did blowjobs in the elevator. Almost got caught...mortifying. Dan and I were on our way out. We decided, why bother looking at real estate listings online, when we could just drive everwhere and see them in person. Sadly, not much for sale was worth looking at. Going to the beach today, and Tisane tonight. David, come to Tisane, I'll give you back your Guccis. No, i havent worn them, tempting as it is.

Dan and I wnet for culture last night in a big way. We scalped tickets to see Prince. We were on the floor, about, 50 or 60 feet from stage, if that. Pretty Good show, although he still has that patent leather latin lover hair thing going on. Good show all and all. Then we went to Wendy's, mainly because it was still open. We really wanted Pizza, but, they werent delivering anymore. Grr. Today, im going off to work. I, in case you dont know, work in a museum. And, Frankly, a rather crappy one....the family had virtually no historical signifgance, and the major accopmleshment was to have the oldest house on Main Street. It's small, and fairly conservitive. I'm the only gay boy, that I know of. The tour director is a lesbian, but im the only queer. Very Bizzare. Hoping Les will show up today, or I will stalk him down and kill him. yesterday was too, too boring for words. Although, listening to Les is also too too boring. Humm....not sure whats worse. I look so cute, im wearing this pink and yellow striped shirt from Express, with khackis and brown leather accessories. I'm such a queen! Stupid Boring Work!

|trying day at work
work was ok, well, accually, it was fun. bunch of guides, no guests, hung out and chilled sort of deal. Sadly, at 1, they all left, and Les didn't show up. So I was all alone till 4. Boring! Gave my first tour, went pretty well. Locked up house, came home. Still, kinda cranky about it. oh well

I think I got a job! I'm most likely going to be a tourguide @ the Butler-McCook House and Garden. To me, it looks like a mansion, of course, anything with real hallways and a dining room...well, to me, its a palace! This should be alot of fun!
