For the Teabag in All of Us

Not that kind of teabag. Don't be gross.

If I go about this properly, the blog will (eventually) explain enough about me, so let me just explain the blog, or at least the title of it, here:

Bummed...well not really

Aww man, I can't believe this weekend had to come to an end. Even worse than the weekend ending? I miss him. He's been gone less than 3 hours, and I miss him. Oh, this is going to be bad.

But we had a truly fantastic weekend. And I mean Fan. Tas. Tic. Also, Just to be a bitch and rub it in with excruciating detail, a timeline:
(warning! as I'm typing this out, I'm noticing that it's getting kinda long. You might want to just skip the text and look at the pretty photos)

Friday 2pm: Dash out of work. YAY! Key West!

Friday 2:12pm: Traffic. Fuck meeeeeeeee!!

Friday 2:45pm: Finally make it to Fort Lauderdale Airport. Get a huge bear hug and many kisses from el Chulo (ps, will no longer be calling him CBG. Chulo is my little cutesy makeyawannapuke name for him. His for me? Angel. Awwwwww.)

Friday 6:35pm: Arrive in Key West, at the incredibly cute bed & breakfast that is to be our little romantic hideaway for 3 days. Looky how pretty:


Friday 7:32pm: We leave the room, showered and refreshed, in search of one of those famous Key West sunsets. Scratch that. We leave the room in search of the sunset but neglect to bring a map, or even consider that we may need a map.

Friday 7:40pm: We are lost. We discover that ...huh! We are not magically going to be transported to the pretty sunset viewing spot, note that darkness is quickly descending upon the island and realise that we have just missed our first Key West sunset.

Friday 8:40pm: After walking the entire length of Duval Street in search of the elusive Mallory Square (and finally finding it, long after the last smudges of sun-kissed colour have dissipated and the place has been deserted), we head back up the way we came and finally settle on a teensy Mexican place for dinner that looked like a hole in the wall but actually had a lovely garden out back. And killer guacamole salad.

Friday 10pm: None of your damn business.

Saturday 8am: Wake up, sit down to breakfast on the lovely little veranda in front of the B&B.

Saturday 9:45am: Rediscover Duval Street (yes, the entire length of it again) in the daylight. Stop in random little shops along the way for browsing or else simply to get out of the heat and humidity. Pop into the Ron Jon store to buy a new t-shirt (Chulo) and flipflops (me).

Saturday 1pm: Toast with pina coladas at a little outdoor bar after all that shopping and walking. Also, there do not appear to be any open container laws in Key West. Woohoo!

Saturday 2pm: None of your damn business.

Saturday 5:30pm: Change outfits 3 times before finally heading out for the gourmet sunset dinner cruise that Chulo booked. Finally I called the boat to see what the dress code is. She tells me "nice casual." I put on a red blouse and linen pants, with dressy sandals, and insist that Chulo wear long pants even though it's 90 degrees out.

Saturday 6:15pm: Discover that "nice casual" means cotton capris and a tank top. We are the best dressed (and the youngest) couple on this boat. I should have known... I mean, I know it's gourmet and all, but it's still Key West!

Saturday 7pm: Even though the fish sounds unbelievable (medium-rare tuna dusted with porcini mushrooms in a key lime glaze -- oh, and by the way, that tuna was swimming around all fancy-free at noon), I order the steak, so that Chulo and I can share dishes (he got the chicken) because he doesn't eat fish. Am I a nice girlfriend or what??

-giggle- I said girlfriend!

Saturday 7:35pm:

Saturday 7:46pm:

(Did I not say fantastic?!)

Saturday 8:15pm: Chocolate chip cheesecake mouthgasm with raspberry coulis.

Saturday 10pm: None of your damn business.

Sunday 7:45am: Very, very grudgingly acknowledge the alarm going off and wake up to get ready for MY treat to him -- a day snorkeling. We took a sailboat charter that might as well have been a private charter as there were a whopping NINE of us (11 if you count Captain and First Mate) on the boat. It was Chulo's first snorkeling trip. He took on the challenge like a champ (even if he did kick his flippers all wrong! He still had a great time).

Sunday 11:45am: I see a nurse shark and FREAK THE FUCK OUT. Remember Finding Nemo when all the little crill say "swim away! swim away!" Yeahhh. I think of Nat and giggle, then choke on a little salt water for my sin.

Sunday 3:15pm: Back on dry land. Head back to the hotel room for a cool shower as we are both a bit crispy from the sun.

Sunday 3:40pm: None of your damn business.

Sunday 7pm: Head out to Mallory Square for the sunset celebration, this time armed with a map and proper directions.

Sunday 7:47pm: We finally get it right. See for yourselves:

Sunday 8:30pm: Have a leisurely outdoor dinner at a Cuban place just off Mallory Square. Marvel at how we seem to have gotten the only non-Spanish-speaking waiter in the whole place. Not only that, but he is the worst waiter EVER.

Sunday 10pm: Lament the imminent conclusion of our weekend. Cuddle up for a bit and fall asleep, completely exhausted from the combination of an action-packed day preceded by almost no sleep at all the night before.

Monday 10am: Pack it up, check out of our romantic little lovenest, and start the long drive back to civilisation.

The rest isn't really interesting enough to make the Teabag Timeline. But I will leave you with a visual of the happy couple:

Dzer -- Chulo & Angel 4-eva! That was too funny. But then you know how new relationships are all sweet and sappy and make everyone wanna yak. I know you're smiling for me on the inside even if you're yakking on the outside!

Glad you enjoyed the photos... I've noticed that they sometimes show up really dark on desktops.
Hopefully you could see them all ok.

Butt -- That shark... oh my. I never flapped flippers so fast in my life. But you know I fell in love with snorkeling from the very first time I did it! I'm just sad that I missed the spotted eagle ray that one of the other guys saw. He said it was as big as a truck from nose to tail. What an amazing photo that would have been! And I know you love the rays with their little flappy selves.

And the none of your damn business part? Let us just say that his wallet is just the beginning to his generosity. (not that I care about that at all, as you know. But I'm not used to this kind of spoiling, in the bedroom or anywhere else)

Joder!!

Well I am all for generosity inside and outside the bedroom. Glad he is being good to you. Sounds like a keeper.

Sass -- Thank you! I loved those sunsets. On the cruise, since we had such a perfect and unfettered view of the horizon, I took about 7 or 8 shots of the sun just going down-down-down til it was no more. I never get to enjoy lovely things like that while I'm chained to my desk all day.

Nat -- I hope you're right. Got my fingers crossed!

First of all, you two are fricken adorable! Too adorable for words. The pictures are breathtaking to say the least.

I've always wanted to go to Key West...of course I do---huge gay community for me...but I always forget I'm not single. *sigh*

I'm glad you had a terrific time! Good luck with Chulo! :) How cute!

Dammit... I just made a post and it got deleted. Post snatchers!!! Now I have to try again...

Terry -- Thank you thank you! Keep on smiling, it's contagious!

Deb -- Thank you very much! It was my first time in Key West (his first time too) and I LOVED IT LOVED IT! Everything was absolutely perfect... the guesthouses are completely charming, the shopping is fun, the bars are good, and the water... oh my goodness. So gorgeous. You don't have to be single to enjoy it! I say grab Madelene and make a trip of it! Maybe even for Fantasy Fest? (just watch out for hurricanes!)

Acne nodules are inflamed, pus-filled pimples that can be extremely painful. The time it takes to work is shorter than other acne medications in the market. [url=http://www.toyjunkiesf.com/]isotretinoin no prescription[/url] For most of these patients, the positive effects of the medication far outweighed the risks involved. This is true of Accutane.
