Awwwwww… did u decide what to do about ur second year?
i can’t just get a second year by picking fruit. they won’t let me
so i am trying to get sponsored by my job, but
but if i get sponored by my job i have to pay the 3000 fee and i have to sign a contract saying i’ll work there for two years
two more years in a restaurant is a long time for me, i’m not 23, ya know
sooooo i’m still thinking about it
they haven’t even gotten back to me about the sponsorship
if that doesn’t work out i may just go to new zealand for the summer
since i haven’t been yet
and do a work holiday there and go home in may so i have two summers in a row
and a part of me,,, a part that is growing a bit, thinks maybe i should just go home in october
but i don’t know
Oh I see a rock and a hard place in the mist
a friend of mine is from london and her parents are gonna buy her a place there i was thinking of going home and then moving in with her in september next year….
i don’t know what to do
What would u do if u go home?
thats the thing, i don’t know
if i stayed in SF i would go back to school and probably get a teaching degree or some shit like that
We have to make the toughest decisions, eh??
or i could find another city in the us to live and start anew
like have here
which would be exciting. i have more oppurtunities in the us
Hmm.. ditch the US.. you are American enough!!
and i would love to go to NZ for the summer but i sooo don’t want to be in another hostel
i don’t want the us in me anmore
Time will tell… follow ur gut feeling & see as much as possible chookie!!
i know. i dont’ want this fantasy life to end, but i kinda feel like i should get back to reality
but reality bites
DO NOT WISH IT AWAY!!

ITs been well over a year since my last post, maybe this blog has been asleep, but not forgotten. I’ve gone off into the world and I’m very excited about what I have found. The blog is not dead….more to come soon!
This guy is 19 and gay.
By the time he is thirty he wants to be straight and force himself to have sex with woman.
Watch this video and hear how ridiculous and delusional he is. He probably just wanted to by on Tyra Banks’ show.
To watch more visit Towlerload.
Well, it is has been two months since my last post. What has happened?
- The first three weeks of January saw Jaime working his ass off and doing really well. The first three weeks of February basically reversed all that progress. What? It’s a process.
- Obama was sworn in as our first black president. His speech made me cry. I still believe he will turn around our country, but what the hell is up with this stimulus package? Billions of dollars, my dollars and yours, are going to build roads and bail out banks… Well how is that going to help me? I mean, I understand these projects will give people jobs and money and they will buy stuff and go eat in restaurants and tip and will help local economies. But how does this help me? Thats what we all want to know, right? Not in anyway that I can tell. So why did Obama not use at least a little bit of this next $800 billion to send us all a stimulus check? Send me $2,000, Mr. President. I will use half of that to pay my credit cards and the other half I would spend. Instant injection of money into the economy. Easy. I’ll hold my breath.
- Madonna is embarking on a second European leg of her Sticky & Sweet Tour in Summer ’09. I hate this. Why is she going back on the same tour? Madonna has never done this before. I believe its because she didn’t play many dates in European cities the first time around and also she knows she can make more money. To me this is just taking up another year and stalling a new album or any other new projects. She also started fucking Jesus Luz. He’s young, hot and hung and I’m hoping Madonna is having lots of hot sex. Madonna + Hot Sex = The return of raunchy Madonna = Good music + Good videos, etc. Already love the new W photo-shoot.
- Sean Penn won the Oscar for his portrayal of Harvey Milk in MILK. I”m so happy he won, but I am still shocked that he beat out Mickey Rourke, who everyone thought was going to be the shoe-in. Dustin Lance Black also won for best screenplay and his acceptance speech was beautiful.
- Jaime went to Tahoe for some intense relaxation at David Wally’s hot springs resort. It was so to get away for a few days just to relax and have fun. I got the best deep tissue massage by a guy named Jeff that could remember every single dream has ever had. He could even remember breast feeding at nine months old, his first memory. We talked spirituality, writing, politics, religion, the body, city life vs mountain life as well as 2012.
- Jaime is strongly considering the Peace Corps again. I started an application about two years ago, but I was not ready in any way to join back then. But now I think I am. I’ve even written a pros and cons list, in which the pros list was about four or five times longer than the cons. I’ll write more about this soon.
- Kelly Clarkson’s new CD, All I Ever Wanted, leaked on the internet and it is amazing! Like, seriously, every track is great and there are a ton of radio friendly tracks on there. Check it out when it is released March 10.
Hmm, what else? I am sure there is more, but I’ll write about it when I think of it.

Ok, ok, I’m thinking the same thing: What is the point of this blog if I never post or update anything? I know I only have like two regular visitors, Mike and Carla, and the occasionals like Karl, Catherine and Amy (Kim), but I might actually have more if I put some real effort into this.
The truth is, I have been unhappy and lazy. I have not really been in the mood to blog or write or do anything in the last couple months so that is why there has been minimal action at StrangeCandy.
Also, this blog has been kinda muddled. Originally under the name of Confessions of a Neurotic Stoner (I still love that title) I wanted this site to be a writing website where I would delve into the recesses of my mind and write all the crazy stuff I found. I think that was when I was in therapy…haha. Um…So it wasn’t that I didn’t find anything in those recesses, there is plenty. I just haven’t really dedicated regular set time to writing. Which is something I really need to do. I still love to write, though I don’t know if I will make a career out of journalism…at least the kind I have been doing as of late.
With the New Year I vow not to make resolutions, just some changes. I will continue with StrangeCandy, which I like, because it is just that, a bunch of random stories, pictures and videos I find on the internet all put together for some viewing pleasure. I mean, if anything my blog is a great way to waste some time.
In addition to StrangeCandy I am going to start two more blogs: One will be dedicated to my writing. I will take all the longer pieces previously posted on StrangeCandy and post them on the new blog, yet to be titled, just to start it off and I will add more stories and journal type writing.
The second will be a blog completely dedicated to weight loss. I am unhappy with my life and it shows in my body; I am unhappy with my body and it shows in my life. I’m fed up and I’m ready to change my life around. This may sound like a resolution to lose weight. It is not. My complete annoyance and frustration with how I have been living my life has come to a head and it is just by coincidence that it is around the New Year, a holiday I completely abhor. Its not about losing weight, but about becoming happy and not remaining comfortable in my self-pity and doing something to change my state of mind and being.
So, for you five people reading and anyone else out there, stay tuned. I plan to get started on these new projects in the next week or so and I will let you know when my new sites are up.
Merry Christmas and good luck with everything!
Here are two new pictures of Madonna shot by SEX (book) photographer, Steven Miesel, shot for the new Louis Vuitton line by Marc Jacobs. The campaign should start in February ’09.
And here is a clip of Madonna on her Sticky & Sweet Tour singing You Must Love Me in Argentina adding, appropriately in Argentina.
Here are some pictures I took the first night I went to Madonna on the Sticky & Sweet Tour. I went with my sister Carla, my Mom and Bonita. When I’m at a concert I don’t generally take pictures because I’d rather just be in the moment and watch the show. So here area few pics I took just so people could see about where i was sitting.
On the second night of the show I had a better seat and there were four girls sitting in front of me. One of them was watching the show through her camera, literally, the entire show. She was so worried about having the show on her camera she basically missed it.
The year is coming to an end and there are plenty more holiday events I’m going to have to take a bunch of pictures at, so I am clearing out my camera and I realized that I never posted anything about Folsom. It was a usual Folsom for me. I got there. I drank too much. I passed out early.
But this year I really did try to hang in there, ya know? I went to brunch with friends and we took our time getting to the fair. I was like, ‘Great, its 2pm and I”m not wasted yet.’ But as I was waiting for my friends to get there, I went and got a drink. This time i did not drink Steel Reserve but i went to one of the bars. I was pondering on what I should drink and I looked over to a very lovely ghetto straight couple and I asked what they were drinking and decided to follow their lead.
Um, that was a mistake, because they were taking shots of patron with a long island ice tea chaser. I downed the first round of that. Then I met this guy giving out shots of tequila on the sidewalk and I hit his pipe. After that i was feeling good. Finally Serena and Julie got there and we walked around, saw friends, took pictures and had fun. So I went back for another round of my fabulous drinks. Midway through that long island, I started feeling too drunk. I don’t even remember taking half the pictures below.
I was passed out in bed my 8 pm. I woke up at one in the morning feeling pretty ill and not really know where or when I was.
Anyway, check out the pics and enjoy.
I’m not sure if there are any words for this. This dedicated to Carla.
Ok, for everyone that is going to go out and protest tomorrow, lets not fight hate with hate. Below is a video of the protest in Palm Springs earlier this week where things got a bit ugly. I can’t stand that Proposition 8 passes, but I’m sorry, these guys need to hold back a little. The footage in this newscast doesn’t make us look too good an will probably give the opposition some ammunition to use against us.
One of my modern heroes, Dan Savage, writer of Savage Love and the book, the Commitment, appeared on 360 with Anderson Cooper to debate with Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council, about the influence of the Mormon Church to pass Prop 8 here in California.
This is a great discussion.
Don’t forget to protest Prop 8 this Saturday at 10:30 a.m. in San Francisco!

Um, did anyone see the Biggest Loser last night????
That Vicky bitch is crazy! Her husband Brady got sent home last night because of rogue blue team member and now Vicky is out for revenge against Amy. I love it. Fat people get skinny and then they get mean. Can we get that stupid bitch HEBA kicked off already, she is soo annoying and she was soo mean to Phil. I hope she breaks a toe and has to be disqualified. Everyone else looks smaller except for her and now her husband is back in the show….oy ve.
Brad Pitt sports a mustache for some new movie.
Its one thing that Joe the Plumber wasn’t where he was supposed to be at a McCain rally, as in the first video. Awkward, but not horrible.
But in this second clip, a McCain aide is being interviewed on CNN, makes harsh comments and accusations about Barack Obama and then has absolutely nothing to back it up. ITs hard to watch.
is right here. WATCH!
Anger management issues apparently run in the family. John McCain’s brother Joe placed a call to 911 earlier this week because he was stuck in traffic in Alexandria, Virginia:
Operator: 911 state your emergency
Caller: It’s not an emergency but do you know why on one side at the damn drawbridge of 95traffic is stopped for 15 minutes and yet traffic’s coming the other way?
Operator: Sir, are you calling 911 to complain about traffic? (pause)
Caller: “Fuck you.” (caller hangs up)
The operator called back and received this message: “Hi this is Joe McCain I can’t take this message now because I’m involved in a very (inaudible) important political project… I hope on Nov. 4th we have elected John.”
My procrastination is getting the best of me.
I’ve out off too much for my two stories for the paper this week and now its all coming down on me. I can’t get the people I need to call me back. I have no real direction for my story. My questions in interviews are a little weak. I’m anxious and nervous. Am I representing the topic well, what do my interviewees think when we’re talking, am I representing the paper well, am I getting everything right? In addition to this I am trying to sell advertising. And I have an entire other story to do as well. I think it will all be ok. I hope.
And now, on top of all this I have to get ready to hob nob and network with professional gays and lesbians, A-Gays or Power-Gays as Eman and I like to say, and put forth an image of sanity.
I’m gonna vomit.
