The Aftermath

Whew! What a weekend. I am happy to report that the party was a smashing success. I think it's safe to assume that everyone had a fun time at our place this weekend. We had a nice turnout ... 30+ people showed up. We were very pleased with how the party turned out. We ate, drank and were extremely merry. We received amazing gifts from our friends -- Sarah and Mark really, really outdid themselves! They arrived with a tub of gifts ... completely unnecessary but very, very appreciated. Erik and I were so happy to see so many of our friends in our home. We had an amazing time!

But, I just have to talk about this or I'm going to explode! I found out yesterday that Dave Koz (jazz saxophonist that I worshipped in high school when I was in band) has publicly come out of the closet ... THE MAN IS GAY! I don't even know what to say ... I was so SHOCKED and AMAZED! Anyways, yesterday I was flipping through Instinct magazine and they had highlighted Dave Koz as their Bachelor of the Month. Here is the first question they asked him:

INSTINCT: What type of guy do you go for?
DAVE KOZ: I'm a small guy, so I like guys around my height. And there's nothing more attractive than a guy who has a passion for what he does. But still, I'm a sucker for a killer smile.

You can read the rest of the article HERE.

I cannot tell you how bizarre it is for me to know this about him! I have all but his last album and have fallen away from following his career in recent years. Sherri and I have seen him in concert a few times back in the day. BUT I CAN'T BELIEVE HE'S GAY! From what I gathered in a few of the articles I've read (Dave Koz, take two, Dave Koz Comes Clean on his Sexuality & Readies Summer Tour) he has been out to his family since the 80's but has suppressing his happiness. He dated guys in college! What?! I cannot believe I never knew any of this!!! Anyways, he's out now and I'm very happy for him. I *must* see him in concert again soon! Sorry that I keep going on about this but it's just a huge surprise for me ... yay Dave!

In case you haven't had the opportunity to see this week's People magazine in person you can see the high resolution pictures of the magazine over at THE PHOTOS are all there for you to check out.

Oi! Britney, Britney, Britney ... make sure you check out the "garter belt" picture. It is so trashy -- very, very trashy in my humble opinion. I managed to pick up a copy of the magazine at the grocery store this weekend and it was on hand at the party. Believe me, it was passed around a lot. I love how everyone *hates* Britney but they are just as interested in her every move as her fans are. I love it! Stereogum has an article that claims that Britney moved up the wedding date because she is pregnant:

A source close to the singer said last night: "Britney has told only her family and closest circle that she is pregnant." The pregnancy, which Spears, 22, has privately admitted, is a dream come true, and marks the end of a turbulent year for the pop star.

I highly doubt that this is true but I'm just passing along the information. There are other things happening in the world, so let's get to it:
And that's about it. I'm actually really busy here at work (what's new?) so I have stuff to get back to. One more thing before I wrap up. I want to send out a big CONGRATULATIONS to my dearest Diana -- she secured a much desired job with the Washington D.C. police force. I am so proud of her and I love her!!!

Finally, can we just talk one more time about Dave Koz and his gayness?!? I am so happy for him! Weee!!!
