I’m Back… And Going to Vegas

If you ever have a chance to be in a gay parade, do it.

Hello. I’m Stateside again, got back last Friday and have spent this week trying to keep my eyes open at work.

I had a fantastic trip – not quite as crazy as the traveling I did a few years ago – but saw some great sights, met a lot of wonderful people from all over, and heard enough Mraz wafting through shop doors and passing cars to keep me tied to reality.

I had two weeks in New Zealand and then four days in Sydney, just enough time to see some friends and participate in the Mardi Gras parade there. It was crazy, but tons of fun. The men were all gorgeous, and even though they were only checking each other out, my friends and I had a blast just dancing around and enjoying all the positive energy. 

While I was away I saw the comments about “I’m Yours” being used in a commercial, and sure enough, over the weekend as I lounged around and caught up on episodes of “Lost” and “Heroes” and “Chuck” I heard it at least a dozen times. It’s weird, but I support anything that makes Jason a little money and gives him enough cred with the record company types who decide how much freedom he’ll have on his next projects. Keep the money men happy and I’m sure you wind up with a lot more independence and room to play.

I bought a ticket for the May 9th Jason Mraz-James Morrison show in Vegasand I’m really excited. Feeling a little guilty about spending money that I should be saving, but we got bonus checks yesterday, and while they aren’t anywhere close to AIG figures, it gives me a little bit to play with. I still have to book my hotel and flights, but I’m hoping another friend or two will decide to come along with me.

Viva Las Vegas,

Hi Guys,

I’m back in Auckland after four really good days in Sydney. I marched/danced in the Mardi Gras parade there and it was incredible. You haven’t lived until thousands of people have shouted and cheered for you, taken your picture and made you feel like royalty.

If you ever have a chance to be in a gay parade, do it. Doesn’t matter if you’re straight, it’s just a really good time.

Also in Sydney I met up with my friend, Heather, who is the one who did yoga with Jason. She said one of the reps from his music label practices at her studio and brought him in when he was in town last. She spoke very highly of his form and said that while he may not have been perfect at everything, he seemed very keen to learn and improve. That’s our Mraz, open to new things and always trying his best.

Sounds like lots of people got Mraz-Morrison tickets, but who has an extra for me?

I come from a land Down Under,
