1. I can't think of anything to say (yeah, it happens - even to me)
2. I don't have any crushes that I can discuss. Not that I don't have them. I just don't want to reveal any of these crushes.
3. I haven't been on any bad dates this year. No blog fodder.
4. Linking stuff is tedious. I have wanted to write about my trip to Chicago and just not
Okay I will write about my trip to Chicago. (Did you get whiplash from that sudden change of direction in today's blog? That is what it's like to live in my brain)
I purchased my airline tickets today - so I am officially heading to Chicago in July for the Gay Games. (If you want the link, Google can help) I also purchased two tickets to see Margaret Cho. I'm holding off on deciding who will accompany me to that event. See how brave I am now? I was going to purchase just my ticket and go alone, but I'm trying to think positive.
I love the part of Chicago known as Boys Town - I had some really great talks with the guys at the bars when I was there a few years ago. Really, all we did was talk. I was partnered at the time and am one of those freaks of nature who doesn't cheat on his boyfriend, so nothing more happened.
I grew up in the Midwestern US, and I relate strongly to other Midwesterners. Although Chicago is a big city, it is definitely a city in the Midwest. Corn is my friend. (Do you even get that? If not, you're not from the Midwest.)
Another thing I love about Chicago is the Art Institute. Visiting the museum has been on my itinerary each time I've been to Chicago. I used to go almost every summer when I was a kid. See, the church I attended growing up has its headquarters there. So every summer we would drive up from Kansas City to attend a huge conference. I remember running around that city with my teenage friends and absolutely no adult supervision. What a feeling of freedom!
Experiencing Buckingham Fountain and the museums and Lake Michigan were eye-opening experiences for this Missouri boy and his friends from Topeka and Wichita, Kansas. Now that I am a grown man (and single!) I look forward to some eye-opening experiences this summer too!
In honor of my Chicago post, here are some Chicago Bloggers you should visit. They are listed in order of who I've slept with the most times.

If I missed (sleeping with) you, let me know!
Funny how I complained about hating to link and ended up linking four or five times in this post.
