Living In A Metrosexual World
2004-08-13 03:08:38 ET

The one thing I've noticed here in Germany is how gay all the guys look. The mextrosexual trend is extremely popular here. Every guy seems to have the perfectly styled Robbie Williams hair (a fauxhawk I guess you'd call it), neat clothes and shoes that match belts. The guys also seem to wear an awful lot of flip-flops. Not sandals, mind you, rubber flip-flops in horrendous colors: yellow, pink and baby blue. A trend that hopefully doesn't migrate to the States (and hopefully will die out extremely quickly): men's capris. Yes, peddal pushers, clam diggers. On men. Not attractive. It's sad when the guys look more well-kept than their girlfriends....

Waiting for my Joe to come home. Trevor and Andy are also coming for one last party weekend before going back to play in the sand. Apparantly they don't play beer pong in California as Trevor was absolutely estatic about learning a new drinking game (I was just as shocked as all you other East Coasters). We're definitely teaching Andy the official rules tonight. My dog is freaking out trying to hunt a lone fly that has meandered into our apartment. It's the most hilarious thing considering my dog is deaf and can't hear where the fly goes after it buzzes away. It's a wonderfully stormy day today. We're getting the remanents of that hurricane that veered from Florida. I awoke to the most amazing sight of huge dark and torrid clouds rumbling in over the horizon. I wish I had my camera to take a picture of that...amazing. Maybe some thrilling lightning displays tonight?

Have you also had the privilidge of seeing the phenomenon of the male capris? We're making plans to soon go to Switzerland...I've heard it's beautiful. Any suggestions?

YES, wtf is that? I go to the store and i'm like "oo, these pants look nice" then i put them up to myself and notice that they're short. I'm like "what the? are these just long shorts?" then i realized what they were. No more shopping in local stores.

Zurich is a really good city. I live about 40 minutes away near the German boarder. You can pretty much stay anyway, it's nice everywhere. Different regions have their own customs and weird languages. I can get to France in about an hour and a half. (Italy is 3 hours) Just it's pretty expensive so you gotta plan carefully if you wanna go here sometime.
