Sietch Life: Punishment

I told Tobie to put everything back the way he found them before he started moving the Kids and the furniture around in recent weeks.

So instead I came home to find this:

Quite literally, Tobie had put them all "back" to where they belonged. At the same time, it made it look like they were all made to "face the wall" as a form of traditional punishment or something.

Just more of the usual kind of silliness that you come to get used to when living with a crazy geeky boyfriend like Tobie.

Hay my boyfriend.

Talk about Cock-ups!

Sometimes, the craziest things happen thanks to a typo.
Just had to immortalize this moment of.. uh... cockiness?
I wonder if I should immortalize the whole list of comments that followed as well.
For now, I guess I can leave this link.

We have FANS!?!

Sometimes, it can be overwhelming to know how there are so many people out there who are happy for Rocky and me.  Maybe it is just because I've never been so openly out in the world in a gay relationship.  Or maybe it just is because when a relationship is truly based on honesty and love, others can feel the love flow outwards to them.  But not a single month goes by without someone new proclaiming their support and admiration of our togetherness.

Hearing from family and close friends how much they are happy to see us happy might sound like something that should be expected, but frankly it means a lot.  For me, it means a huge lot because I only recently came out.  My parents, while they constantly reassure me that they love me and want me to be happy, admittedly are still trying to wrap their heads around the fact one of their sons is in a gay relationship.  Thankfully, Rocky's family is handling it better than my own parents, and Rocky's sister has even admitted to me how happy she is to see her brother so much happier now.  One message a friend sent me even went so far to say, "I wish lahat kami magkaroon ng Tobie at Rocky din" ("I wish all of us also finds a Tobie and Rocky too")

It feels a bit odd to try to compose this blog post, admittedly.  There's always a part of me that feels this attempt to share the joy and celebrate how happy will always be taken wrongly by certain people.   It is kind of sad that any proclamations of how happy we are can be interpreted by others as an attack intended to spite exes and old loves.  Or that such statements are intended to sound more like boasts, rather than as reasons to celebrate and hopefully inspire others to also be open and proud of their relationships.

So, this is my somewhat awkward attempt to blog about this:

We have fans.
Crazy as it sounds, but yes we have fans.

Everything from people blogging about us, to numerous new faces adding us on just to commend how happy they are to see a gay couple that works, there seems to be so many more faces that have the same thought they want to express: It is great to see you two so happy.  Sometimes, I end up wondering why gay relationships seem to be seen as short-term or temporary pairings by default.

To all our fans, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
It does make a difference, I have to admit.  No matter how happy we know we are, and no matter how much love and joy we do feel we have, there is always room for more joy and happiness.  And to hear from others, whether it be people whom we are close to, or total strangers who have only met us once, or known us through web interaction, how much they admire our passion and intimacy always makes us feel even better.

Thank you for your support.

(edit: I originally wrote this post with lots of images of screen caps of those who sent us messages of support.  But I decided to delete them when I realized most of them are probably not out yet, or would possibly find themselves dealing with complications from other forces.  So pardon the bareness of this post.)

Sietch Life: Spoils of War

I told Tobie to put the kids away given it was becoming more and more difficult to get dressed with the kids slowly taking over the drawers one by one. Of course he denied all involvement in the kids being able to move around the Sietch.

And then I came home to this:

Technically the kids were back in the room.

Sietch Life: New Conference Room

So the other day I found a few of the kids inside my underwear drawer. Piggy had been left outside since obviously he couldn't fit in the drawer like the rest of the kids.

But as this week has progressed, it seems more and more of the kids have been hanging out amongst my skivvies for some reason or another. And it didn't make me feel any better when Totoro started hanging out there to.

As you can see...

Personal Dedication

So in case you haven't noticed, I'm a bit of a geek. And so is Tobie, which is even cooler. And so it means we get involved in some pretty geeky things.

 Case in point - last September Lifehacker legends Adam Pash and Gina Trapani offered to digitally sign copies of their book for whoever sent in a request. This consisted of everyone sending in photos of themselves with the book or your ebook reader displaying the book and waiting for it to come back.

I've been a faithful Lifehacker reader (and believer) for many years now and so I definitely wanted participate. So I "picked up" the Kindle edition of Lifehacker: The Guide to Working Smarter, Faster, and Better and this is what we got back:

Pretty cool, right? And yes, of course I wanted Tobie to share in the dedication note.

Totally, totally AWESOME!

Sietch Life: Unusual Residents

I've learned to be suspicious whenever any of the kids leave the safety of their shelving-derived home in our bedroom. So one day before work I woke up to find Piggy in an unusual place:

You can't tell from the photo too well, but he's actually on top of a stack of my clothes that had just come back from the laundry service. He was just sitting there and I had no idea why, but for the mean time I just dismissed this as a little tricky Tobie was playing, but nothing of too much importance.

But then I went about getting dressed for work and I wasn't prepared for what I found next.
