Happy Birthday Boys

Had some very happy moment last night as I climbed outta the hole I was in from Friday night's craziness. Pix's friend Ryan came back from a lil trip to PRC with a big bottle of Grey Goose vodka and invited us to come help drink it and have a swim in the rooftop pool of the hotel he calls home. I didn't need to drink, but the swim was great. The sky was so beautiful... Moon shining as the sun showed us a very nice sunset. We sat in the jacuzzi, people-watching, chatting, relaxing. As I walked around the space I had a moment of feeling very happy.
But later, down in Ryan's apartment, just after he played 'You're the Voice', all I could think about was 194 and the fact I wasn't at the Rose boy's 21st. So I called that familiar number, had a chat with LTR, JC and then Jack! Who'd turned up very fashionably late, of course. LTR was serving up dumplings as he was talking to me and the whole scene sounded happy and fun. Nearly killed me. Luckily JC had a few gags for me - she'd just been on the decks and had spun 'You're the Voice' - seriously - and her dulcet tones were exactly what I needed to hear. I do need to stop making these kind of calls though- I'm yet to get a phone bill so I've no idea how much they cost me.
Anyways there came a point (after a swimsuit shoot - not sure if I should post those photos) when Pix and I thought a taxi was a good option - rather than head out, head home. Lovely cab driver switched on a massage thingy in my seat so I got a weird mechanical massage as we sped westward to my home. Was the first time I'd not waited for the subway but got a taxi - I think I should do it more often now that I know it's less than $15 from Hongdae-ish.
Now my brief 'summer vacation' is over so it's back to the kids tomorrow, sweet jesus. But I'm on the countdown to Charlie's visit, so that will make it easier. Yay. It definitely feels like I've been here for longer than 7 weeks. Hmm.

Not bored anymore, had many full days since then, now I am a bit swamped for things to do... ebb and flow.

ps. rooftop swimming sounds great, just saying yesterday I need a swim, must find a heated pool.

ah yeah. it's all about balance, eh?
yeah swim WAS great. there was a minor bit of angst when we looked over at the jacuzzi and the water was all jaws-like red, scary. then we realised it was fancy coloured lights... and they turned purple, blue, green... jesus.

oh wal!
i reckon your party woulda gone off! so sad i couldn't be there!what did you boys wear? hired tuxedoes like LTR did at his?

suffice to say, wal took the lack/tux theme and birdshat on it with his royal blue two-piece suit (courtesy of ebay donchaknow...a mere 75 euros!), i wish i could say the same. in other news, the doc could have filled an entire myspace.com domain from his dancing that night alone. I swear he is an MD, i saw him on shift! once anyway. gutted you couldnt be there my great mate, but what can you do... your element is beyond the rabbit proof fence.
As for those rooftop pool nudie photos... well, its not too late for a birthday present now is it? as the beatles sang "you know my name. look up the number!"
lots of love from McGregor "21" Rose.
