i remember going into redhook and kinda meeting his mother. i remember coming back to jersey and him spending the night. i almost could have had it when we woke up, as i saw a boner in his underwear - he wouldn't sleep nude). the thought of this is givin me a rise.
2 fulton st
movedout of manny's
what an experience
tony helped, bless his soul
all came out ok - tony spent the night
lent me $100
oh i remember this one good. had to get tony to help me move out of manny's. had to break in, and we took a cab, all the way into new jersey with all my stuff. it was a real wild time in my life. tony was the kid that i had a crush on over at ideal printing. he helpd me move to new jersey. and how did i get to know about that apt on fulton? i can't remember. i do know that i lived at the hotel a few blocks away from it. so i wasnt a stranger to the area. very rican. i think later on, i come to know a guy by the name of papo. there should be a lot of memories with that, and my guess is that as we progress into the latter part of 1986, we're gonna find some hair-standing stories to tell. so what are we waiting for?
borrowed 5.00 tom K. (kinsey? cant be)
as with all gay day activities, i take a special likening to events on account of it being my birthday an all. i always tell folx, gotta luv it when a million people march down the middle of town on my birthday.
got a bottle of chivas regal from "Fans in the bullben" > home right after awards
if i tried really hard, i could probably rememeber the names of most of the 'fans'... the bullpen was where potential associate lawyers would come during their summers to get on-the-job experience wihtout really getting credit for it. they were fresh from college, and a joy to work with, most of the time. my fans however, remained true right up until the time i couldnt work there any more. cant remember what happened. maybe as we progress through this diary, i'll get an answer to that.

275 mad / 40th
bill mcginty was a lawyer that worked for the lawfirm, sargeant ahearn & van heemstra, who had offices at 200 park avenue in the pan am building. this goes back to 1981, when i lived with manny at 400 west 14th. since i can't place the time/date when i lived with manny by diary, i'll have to make up for it in memories like this.
manny, man parrish, was a friend who was into doing music. he had a funky lil studio in his loft on 14th street, and we met at a bar down the street, the anvil. i think i met his roommate, and we just happened to make out when i came home with him. ANYway, it was a relationship that lasted even until now. of course we had our ups and downs, and he was going through some tough times when i had it good, but now the tables are reversed, he's sittin on top of the world, while i'm laboring for scraps. anyway, um, the memories. here's a shot:
sullivan & cromwell
125 broad st. 28th flr.
they HIRED me too. the beginning of a long relationship with a very very old law firm. mostly doing corporate stuff. i have some fond, and some not-so-fond memories of S&C.
SB - 58th st ofc
SB - jane
133 e 58th st.
SB is code for staff builders. a temp agency i had a long and very well established relationship with. even made the cover of their annual report.
ken chapin o/n
h 718-624-5000 x7957
can't say that i remember either one these guys. i just called that number and it belongs to sonic branding solutions. i have no idea who they are either. and this goes back WHEY back before the internet. ken duznt work there, so i guess i can scratch that off my list.

how to say today?
played pool las nite
o/n @ office w/eduwardo
BUSTED ON THE COUCH by lenny (ideal)
no more keys
this was the day i got busted for sleeping, and in fact, fucking, eduardo in the office. lennie about had a fit. and he had every right to be mad. he fired me of course. oh well. it was a nice stint while it lasted. but don't be fooled. i ended up working at another printer up the street some, and again, got busted in the office one morning with my trick on the couch, naked. drugs everywhere. i'm sure that'll show up later in the diary. but i'll have to mark this date as the one i want to refer to as having experienced it.
37.25 IP hrs
+75 OT last week
to interpret these figures:
i worked at contemporary (a temp agency), and got paid $15 per hour for 10 hours that i worked at nyc law, making that portion of my check come out to $150. then kelly drye was worth $270 in the same manner. making my check $420 for the both spaces. i can't figure out what the IP hrs is. suffice it to say i was raking in the dough. god how i wish i could make that kinda money today. tnis was a solid 20 years ago. TWENTY YEARS ago.

out - rawhide
100C - burned on 38th
O/N -- I (?)
this was a saturday night. over night at ideal i'll bet you any amount that's what it was. i was known to use my office for a quick, in the city, place to crash when i needed such. i had a couch in my office so it was comfortable. there was even a shower in the bathroom. so the only thing that was missing from the place being a full apartment was a kitchen. hopefully i'll be getting to the time i got caught. should be coming up in a month or so.

i dont know what the dates of these events are, but these are the events and the chronology as i believe them to be true.
i remember flying into kansas city, from palm springs. it would have been a return trip to kansas city as i had friends there who ran the club baths to come pick me up at the airport. i had already been a victim of a fire arson at the hotel fire in 1977/78? coates house. ya, that's it. anyway, i had been in palm springs. and that was first started when i was living in los angeles and working at the hollywood spa. and commuting to palm springs in a limosine. so, we're heading back in time now. when i first started hollywood spa, it would have been as a result of my talking to this person long distance from my office as the cab dispatcher in iowa city. he worked some telecommunications thing... oh wait. that's not right. THAT guy lived in phoenix. remember? oh yea. phoenix. gah. that was what? after? palm springs? god this is where it gets real fuzzy. there's a whole slew of stops, that included las vegas, palm springs, los angeles, san diego. gah. oooh dubble gah.

hired at ideal.
this was a job that i really enjoyed doing. spending a lot of extra hours at work doing what i thought was a bang up job. i also fell for another employee... tony. as long as i could be in the same building, much less same office space, as him, i was happy.
