Thunder and lightening
Send shudders through my soul,
Trembling the goodness that comes of you,
The strength of your gentle voice gives me joy,
Pining to hear it again, when you say my name,
I awake with gladness,
It is you that gives me drive
It is you that makes me feel alive,
It is you that makes the darkest day seem so bright,
It is you that gives me sight,
It is you that gives me pleasant dreams when I sleep at night,
It is you that drives my soul,
It is you that I'm falling for,
It is you that keeps me wanting more,
It is you that makes me happy when I'm feeling down,
With just a single thought of you,
It is you that puts a smile on my face ten thousand times a day,
It is you that I care about,
It is you, who I want more than anything in the world,
It is your smile that even though your miles away
Brings you close to me
It is you my love
It is you
It is you
It is you
Personally I think Spanish is much more of a sexier language than French is.
I am currently in the process of learning it... well i can count to 10 and say hello but I'm getting there... my secret plan is to woo a particular someone with it ;)

I'm a gay Christian and I am not ashamed of who I am, I believe that Jesus still loves me and that is never going to change.
The English word homosexual is a compound word made from the Greek word homo, meaning “the same”, and the Latin term sexualis, meaning sex. The term “homosexual” is of modern origin, and it wasn’t until about a hundred years ago that it was first used. There is no word in biblical Greek or Hebrew that is equivalent to the English word homosexual. The 1946 Revised Standard Version (RSV) of the Bible was the first translation to use the word homosexual.
There is no word in biblical Greek or Hebrew for “sodomy.” A Sodomite was simply an inhabitant of Sodom, just as a Moabite was an inhabitant of Moab. Any translation of the New Testament making use of the words “sodomy” or “sodomite” are clear interpretations and not faithful translations.
here is an interesting read there are more links on the sidebar of this site that will be worth a read
What does the Bible really say about Homosexuality?

On Friday afternoon I spent five and a half hours on the bus to get Napier, by then I was shattered but being in a totally different city, a burst of second wind lifted my energy levels right up again. By the time I arrived it was heading on 10pm and most places were closed or closing up for the night, we did manage to pop in to a bar, have a quiet drink, while watching people dressed from the 1930s waltz about the streets as well as watching a few vintage vehicles drive past, it was amazing.
Come Saturday we had a look around at what was going on around the city, vintage cars lined Marine Parade for what seemed miles.
The Streets were packed with so many people, it was such a great atmosphere! I so want to go back next year.
On Sunday Marc took me out to Waimarama, seriously talk about breath taking!

We we then went to Craggy Range and I had my first official wine tasting, thinking back on it I so wish i purchased a a few bottles of wine, seriously they had a couple that were absolutely delicious! and it being such a beautiful place its no wonder they make lovely wine.
I really must get myself some next time I am up there.
Well that pretty much concludes some of the highlights of my visit to Napier. I absolutely enjoyed myself I will definitely go back again and I recommend you go too.

This weekend I am going to Napier... It is a good time to be going too, as it is Art Deco Weekend. I will try and remember to take pictures and tell of my expedition of exploring the Art Deco capital of New Zealand. In the mean time here is a little information on Napier, courtesy of Wikipedia
Napier (Ahuriri in Māori) is an important port city in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. It has a population of 57,000. Ten kilometres to the south lies Hastings, Napier's twin city. The two are sometimes known in New Zealand as "The Twin Cities".
The town is 332 kilometres (about four hours) northeast by road from the capital, Wellington. It has a population smaller than Hastings, but as Hastings is administered as a district, Napier is the only city in the Hawke's Bay region, which is the largest crossbred wool centre in the Southern Hemisphere and one of the largest apple, pear and stone fruit producing areas in New Zealand. It has also become an important grape growing and wine production area with the fruit passing from the growers around Metropolitan Hastings and then to Napier for exporting. There are large frozen meat, wool, pulp and timber tonnages passing through Napier’s port.
Napier is a popular retirement town and tourist resort, and has one of the most photographed tourist attractions in the country, a statue on Marine Parade called Pania Of The Reef. Her statue is regarded in Napier in much the same way that the Little Mermaid statue is regarded in Copenhagen, and bears some similarities to its Scandinavian equivalent.

isn't it amazing what you can find on the net these days, some things can be rather interesting, or completely useless
for instance there is an amazing assortment of videos on youtube....
unfortunately I can not embed this video, for you to watch from my blog but its well worth the watch

this is a piss take of Mel B. aka Scary Spice
it amazes me how fragile life is, at any moment someone you know can be taken from this earth, many different reasons take peoples lives, one of them being suicide, I didn't think that any of my friends would choose this road, but sadly one of my friends decided to take his own life, it hurts me to think that I could have been a better friend to him, and been there for him. As selfish as this sounds I'm defiantly going to make a greater attempt to be there for my friends, I don't believe that suicide should be an option. And you should all know that you can call on me when ever you need.

below is a trailer and plot summary of the movie. if you are a film freak I thoroughly recommend you go see it.
Numerous New York City-dwellers come to the exclusive club Shortbus to work out problems in their sexual relationships. Rob (Raphael Barker) and Sophia (Sook-Yin Lee) are a happily married couple, except for the fact that she has never experienced sexual climax. This irony follows her to work, because she is a couples counselor who frequently has to deal with the sexual issues other couples have. Two of her patients are Jamie (PJ DeBoy) and James (Paul Dawson), a gay couple who have been monogamous for five years and counting. James wants to bring other men in to the relationship, and his own history with depression may hint at an ulterior motive. Ceth (Pronounced like Seth, played by Jay Brannon) may be the perfect addition to their family, but Caleb, a voyeur from across the street, may have his own ideas about that. At the urging of the two Jamies, Sophia visits Severin, a dominatrix with secrets of her own to reveal. ~ courtesy of IMDB-shortbus
