Here are some pictures.
Almost forgot to mention how AMAZING Dolly Parton was at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday. It was seriously a fantastic show. She is hilarious. She had little stories and jokes between each song - and they were really funny. She isn't afraid of making fun of herself and it was great.
Here are some pictures.
Although parking is a pain - and I kind of hate dealing with large crowds of people - the Hollywood Bowl is a really great experience. I highly recommend it to everyone.
Dolly & Soccer
I'm so excited for the Dolly Parton concert tomorrow at the Hollywood Bowl.
I'm also very excited for this weekend when not only do I get to help some friends move into a new apartment - BUT ALSO, I get to sing the National Anthem with the Gay Men's Chorus at major league soccer game!!!! It's the first ever Equality Night hosted by a major league team and I can't wait. It's going to be awesome.
You should come!

Of Course This Happened
I had rehearsal tonight for the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles - as well as auditions for solos (which went well, by the way - but I still don't know if I got one or not). Regardless, I have to leave right from work without much time to grab food beforehand - so I usually just eat a granola bar in the car on the way. Not a big deal, right?
As I was climbing BACK into my car tonight after rehearsal was over - I noticed something on my seat, so I went to brush it off - and it didn't move. It was slightly smeared on the seat - and then it hit me - a chocolate chip must have fallen from the granola bar (because you know my fat ass isn't getting the good granola bars, I'm getting the fatty ones that have chocolate and peanut butter) and underneath me as I was driving.
WHICH COULD ONLY MEAN ONE THING.
If it had gotten on my seat - there's an OUTSTANDINGLY GOOD chance that it had also gotten on my pants. And I just spent over three hours in a room with 200 other guys. And I probably have chocolate all over my backside.
That's when the little voice inside my head tried to reason with me. "Oh, come on Steve - it clearly didn't get on your pants. Someone would have said something - even just a snarky comment - something." - and then the voice found logic and said "Unless they were making the snarky comments BEHIND YOUR BACK - WHERE THE CHOCOLATE IS!!!"
So I rushed home - hoping against hope that somehow the chocolate had only melted/smeared on my car seat and had magically left my pants unstained.
Boy, was I wrong.
Anyway, thanks Granola Bars for keeping me good and single (and fat).
Hair & A House?
Alright, I'm taking suggestions for what my hairstyle should be for GMCLA's 80's show later this summer. It's getting long (or long for me, anyway) and it's driving me nuts. But if I know the hairstyle I'm shooting for, it might help pass the time. Right now, I'm torn between the style of the blonde chick from Roxette and that of Taylor Dayne... thoughts?
So - when I was home, I was telling my dad about a friend who owns property. And my dad said "You know, you should look into buying property." And - of course - I laughed. Owning property is not on my radar right now - at least it wasn't... Any sane person would have laughed off the remark and not given it another thought. However, in the past two days, I have found myself thinking "I really should know more about purchasing property - just to know." or "If I found the right place at the right price, it might be roughly the same as my monthly rent."
These seem to me to be things that first-time property owners think. But then again, how would I know? I'm not a first-time property owner... yet!
First Concert - check!
Alright, so the first concert went very, very well. The second one was ok. There was a moment towards the middle of Act 1 where I was pretty sure my tie was trying to kill me and I might pass out from lack of oxygen - but it all turned out ok.
The next thing I have to say is just so cool that it needs it's own post. Stay tuned...
