And what do I say to that?

Washing on the line this morning was still damp, so I couldn't wear my normal work pants to work. As a result I wear one of my new pairs of jeans, bought a month or so ago. I bought three new pairs of jeans at the same time, all of them 82cm waist (32 Inch).

I'm wearing one of my newer work shirts, plus a tie so I still look business like (not that I actually need to. Dress code is very casual around here.)

I'm in the office next door talking to Sarah (IT admin) about something and as I walk away she says I look good in these jeans. I thank her, and then she goes on and I have a really good looking bum in them!

Wha?

At a bit of a loss for words there.

Later on I'm talking to Demi (receptionist) and she also says the same thing. I immediately blame Sarah of being evil, but Demi says that she came to the conclusion independently, and had actually said that to Sarah after Sarah had said it to me, but before Sarah had mentioned that she had said it.

I'm feeling very flattered, a bit speechless and somewhat embarrassed! Both Sarah and Demi know that I'm gay, so I have no choice but to accept that they are telling the truth!

HAHAHA! Welcome to the world of dieting results dude. It will only happen more frequently from here. I have been through the same recently, people will notice the new you (especially if new clothes are involved) and will comment.

Take the compliment and run with it. Hell I wish more girls around my office would give my ass some self esteem. ;o)

Wow. You must look amazing now. You are thinner than me. I'm back up to a 33". Trying to get back down though :P

What? You're a 33" waist? I would have thought you would have been thinner than I was. Interesting.

I would except for the fact you're in Canberra and I'm not! :)

However, I should be getting a digital camera for my birthday (end of August) so we may be able to rectify the lack of photographic evidence then.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
