It’s been a while since Tigguhh has made an appearance. I’ve been having some insecurity issues. Anyway, Tigguhh felt like coming out to play a bit. I’ve posted 40+ images of Tigguhh on my Flickr.
I just uploaded a new video to my youtube. I added-on to one of my routines that I taught. Enjoy!
I found a video of our show at House of Blues on Halloween. You can’t see much because of the lighting. I’m the bald guy in the front during the middle part of the first routine and during thriller…unfortunately you can’t really see Pooh in this vid. I’ll post other versions as soon as my friends upload them. The youtube account this video is on is not mine so if you would like to comment, please comment on my blog. :) Thanks!
I can remember when Pooh first came out to me. I was shaking, nervous, and anxious. My palms were sweaty and I couldn’t look him in the eye. I was surprised and didn’t know what to say. How could my straight best friend of 2 years suddenly tell me that he’s gay? Deep inside I knew that I felt that way because I had a crush on him all this time but knew that nothing could ever come of it because he was straight. It’s a strange feeling to finally come to terms and accept the fact that it could never happen, then suddenly, in an instant, a door opens. A door of opportunity seemed to have magically appeared out of nowhere. The question would seem to be – Do I rush right in before that door suddenly closes? Do I enter with caution? Or do I do nothing?
We were going to Green Tea House when Pooh came out to me. We were in his car and we had just parked when he blurted it out. I told him I didn’t believe him and I didn’t. I thought he was joking. He even asked me to let him borrow some of my porns so he could prove that he was gay. I had a VHS of “Fortune Nookie” with Brandon Lee that I let him borrow a few days later – when I handed it to him I told him he wasn’t going to watch them.
Since I was in shock and couldn’t believe him at the moment, I decided to change the subject. We got out of the car to get some Boba. I had an Almond Milk Tea with green boba. Pooh got his favorite Green Apple and Strawberry slush with green boba. In the back of my mind the thought of Pooh being into guys swirled around and confused me. Was he always gay? Since I was his only gay friend, was it me that made him gay? Why did he come out to me? Is he already talking to someone? How would I feel if he hooked up with a guy…and had a boyfriend?
At the time, I had actually given up on guys and was dating a girl. Yes, a female. When Pooh came out to me he didn’t say that he was into me or anything. He had just simply decided to tell me that he was into guys. For some reason, I was sad. I had always thought of Pooh as being a great guy and great boyfriend material. I always told him how he’d make a girl really happy to have him. Pooh was going out with a girl when we first met and I was able to observe how sweet he was and how incredibly caring he was with her. As I sipped on my Almond Milk Tea, I started to feel a sadness inside. I guess maybe I started to feel a bit jealous. I started thinking that even though there might of be a chance with us, I was already with someone. And then it occurred to me…he won’t be single for long. He’ll find a guy and be that lucky guy’s incredibly caring, incredibly sweet, and incredibly perfect bf.
It would be quite a while before the “Pooh and Tiggah” actually came to be.

Pooh and I are deeply saddened by the passing of Prop 8. I would of thought that a country that overcame slavery and segregation would have been more tolerable and accepting of homosexuality. It is extremely disappointing that people feel that man should not be able to marry another man because it’s disrupting the sanctity of marriage. If they want to “protect marriage” then perhaps they should ban divorce. They should also ban celebrities from drunkenly getting married and divorcing the very next day.
I can rant all I want but it wouldn’t change anything and unfortunately it wouldn’t solve anything. In time, we’ll eventually get our day. Until then we’ll just have to love each other and hope that times will change once again. Pooh and I were talking about it and we both feel pretty bummed about the whole thing. We both agree that sure, we aren’t planning on getting married right now, but knowing that it’s an option and that we’d have just as much a right to it as everyone else…would of been nice.
I love my Pooh and I want to spend the rest of my life with him. I don’t need a certificate nor the state to tell me otherwise (although, I still wouldn’t mind some bling on my finger); I know in my heart that we’re married.
Jay Brennan – Housewife (This song is my favorite! I highly recommend listening to it if you feel the same way about all this stuff.)
Pooh and I have been pretty busy lately so we haven’t had time to celebrate our anniversary yet. We’re planning on having dinner at the Oceanaire sometime this week. I decided to give Pooh his gift today since we had to reschedule our reservation.
I got Pooh a G1. For those of you that don’t already know, Pooh is a phone freak and basically gets a new one every year. He’s been raving about the G1 for quite some time so I thought it’d be a great gift. He LOVED IT! I think when I upgrade my phone I might get a G1 for myself. However, I think I’m much too in love with the camera on my K800i to change phones any time soon.
In light of the upcoming election, I thought I’d throw this out there. Not that Pooh and I are planning on getting married any time soon…but it’s nice to know that it’s an option. :)
I don’t talk politics on my blog but I think that this is definitely an important issue that all of my readers can relate with. America has gone through a lot of changes in the past and this is just another step into making the world more tolerable and more accepting. Not everyone has to agree with homosexuality but I think everyone should accept one another as equal human beings. We should all be able to love whoever we want to and we should be able to marry the one we love.
