I have rec'd calls and emails from many of you wanting to know just WTF I've been these last few days, and it has also been brought to my attention that this is the longest I've been unavailable on AIM. Ever.

Let me enlighten you.

I've met this magical, intoxicating couple. Galinda & Frankenfurter. They suck me in to their surreal freak-show world and time starts to lack dynamic. Only once before have I experienced something like this, and that was entering Tony's darkened house after work Friday only to re-emerge again Monday morning into the harsh light with no tangible memories of the xanax and bourbon induced activities betwixt the two. My slide into this current dreamworld began Wednesday (though I was enamored of it from a distance, as an outsider, much earlier) innocently enough (as they all seem to do) with a visit to Harrah's Lucky Break telecast to watch a friend of a friend compete. It was only a small group of us, so I felt entirely comfortable ordering the 60 oz. beer. As it turned out, more friends of friends showed and I was on my second! The show ends, the area vacates and Galinda and I order only a handful more as we await the release of Frankenfurter (three days, three mids, three nights, three days off.) Once battened down at his abode, the floor was flushed and I spiraled down, getting only three hours of sleep in my own bed before the next morning. What had happened? Accurate memories are vague and unreliable.

One thing is for sure: Their exterior alter-ego's of sane, mild-mannered people during the day is only a facade, and the transformation process is truly awesome to behold as they become firecrackers after dark! A fourteen-hour day follows in which I managed to triple-book my morning. Not getting quite enough sleep, I begin Friday in a hectic mad-dash of my responsibilities followed by another evening meeting with Galinda & Frankenfurter which ends 12 hours later. Once again, three hours of sleep and another 24 hours with my only sustenance being their presence! Food becomes irrelevant, sleep uneccesasry. I am now a creature of the night! We've already begun the plan of luring my wife into their circle of darkness so my path can be complete and our rightful destiny realized!

In other news, astro (of thescorestation.com fame) and his wife were in Missouri for a visit trying to iron-out the details of their relocation and we had a wonderful breakfast together - very charming people! We had only a limited amount of time, and I could not answer all of my wife's questions due to that, but I foresee another St. Louis relationship. If all goes according to plan, and provided I engage my sleep-mode in a timely manner, they will join me for dinner their last night in town.

Ordered the following ties:

d00d,

I'm glad you're having a grand time in MO. Sounds like you needed something like this to help you cope with the stress. Good luck to you and your wife as you start this chapter of your life.

It's grand that you met astro, too! Do give him my regards the next time you see him. May many happy memories be shared betwix you, your wife, astro and his wife.

As for me, I plan to travel soon as should soon be released on my blog. I hope that you will not find it cheeky of my to turn down your invitation to come to St. Louis, but I have finally decided that enough is enough. It's time to fall on the grenade and hope it's a dud. I speak of going to LA.

Yes, you heard me correctly. Things have been going shitty at work (more details on my blog when updated), the student loans have been deferred for a time, I'm young, lack a significiant other and have very week ties to the great city of Huntsville. Perhaps it is folly for me to go to California. Using IMDB Pro, I've found the agents of a few in the industry I respect who might be willing to give me an hour of their time over a lunch, regonize that I'm not a crazy lunatic, and might perhaps give me a job/job training. If this plan doesn't work out, I suppose there's always the Air Force, but I doubt they'd have me anyway.

You've been a great friend and wise counselor. If you think I'm crazy or just taking things too far, contact me at once and try to show me the light. I lack the support of a lot of people, but the few who do support me think this is the first time that I've had my head on straight.

Eric, you're a great guy with a super positive attitude on life. Thanx for showing me that it's ok to be young and live a little. Oh yeah, and a special thanx goes out to you for putting up with all my bullshit.

Gratefully,
Tomas Andrew Gallucci,
CEO Blue Portal Productions

P.S. I like the tie with all the computer chips.

With that fine selection of ties you're sure to dissuade anyone who assumes you're gay after seeing your shoes.

don't be hatin on the the man for gettin' uber cool ties...let's see your collection.

btw, I do agree with your point. Those ties will make people think that maybe instead of being gay, he's a metrosexual. Time will tell.

Yes! Mostly on TSS chat. We also visit in real life when he's in town.
