What about Bob Pt 4

Ok more questions!

Oh and no work tomorrow, yay! And hopefully all my plans work out nicely. :D

26. Experiences if done or experienced any of the following questions please described the how, what, why, when or the where of it, if multiple occurrences have occurred simply discuss them in general and why you enjoy doing it or what occurred.
a. Been skinny dipping? nope
b. Best place been in life and why? I can't do bests and favorites. Here are some top contenders though. A beach in Cabo San Lucas Mexico with the blood red moon rising above the ocean horizon; Lake Lucern in Switzerland, god it's gorgeous there; the bonneville bench above the Salt Lake valley on a cold winter night with a million stars struggling to be seen in the city lights. The bow of a cruise boat in the Caribbean with the moonlight above and the wind rushing through my hair. Moonlight seems to show up a bit don't it? Haha I like the moon. It's magical really.
c. Worst place you have been to in life and why? I can't say that I've been to somewhere i've really loathed sorry.
d. Place you want to visit and why? New Zealand, I've heard it's beautiful. I'll have to go on a full moon too. That would be sooooo awesome.
e. Worst experience you have had in life? Perhaps the mental paralysis I experienced earlier this spring. Man it was horrible. Or perhaps the one time I got really really sick and I was just laying on the couch touching my fingers together to see if they were still there and had feeling. I was having existential thoughts about how the world was really a sham and there was no meaning, I was really wacky.
f. Best experience you have had in life? Anytime I can travel :D
g. Best thing that has been done for you by another? Reach out to me. Anytime someone makes the effort to reach out to me it makes me feel wanted loved and it's the best feeling. Unfortunately it doesn't happen much :/
h. Worst thing you have done to another? Perhaps I can be a bit of an ass to people that i'm comfortable with and some people i just am an ass to and I don't know why...
i. What wouldI do with you and your friends on a Friday night? Well it depends on the friends i'm with, but lately it would be wandering around downtown SLC.
j. What is the worst Matt has been drunk before? The most I've ever had to drink in one night has been a few sips of a few drinks. I don't drink.

42. And separately what amusement park in the world would you like to travel to? I've heard Thorpe park is nice, but Cedar point wins my vote.

What About Bob Pt 3

Oy this one is coming in late, things are getting busy here at the Matt station.

It's getting last though and I have to get up fairly early so I'm going to just jump right in with the questions.

See above answer.

12. What thing or activity, do you enjoy doing or participating more than anything else in your life?
Simply living my good man, simply living.

13. What is your favorite band, and why?
I can't pick a favorite, because it changes all the time. Lately I have been listening to a lot of Neil Young though. I like him because of his diverse range and his wonderfully potent lyrics.

Well no CD is favorited, but oddly enough I do have a favorite record. Tapestry by Carole King. I just love that album.

17. Camping what piece of advice do you have for novice campers and what one piece of equipment do you always bring camping?
Don't over pack. You don't need all that. I always bring a bandanna, most useful item out in the wilderness for most situations.

18. Where is Matt happier in the woods hiking or on the lake sailing?
In the woods. I just don't sail that much anymore. But there are magical moments with each so I can't say for certain.

19. Do you still consider yourself a hippie and if yes why?

What About Bob Pt 2

More questions!

By the way, if you have any additional questions that you would like answered feel free to ask whatever you like, although I know most of you are sick of these, so I'm not expecting them. However if there is something you would like to know, please ask!

Oh and yesterday was a long ass day (haha i'm writing in the past tense although this is the night of the day that i wrote this which is yesterday but really today, confusing much? haha don't worry about it, none of that made sense to me either). I hope today won't be as bad.

Questions! I'm gonna try to get most of these multi-part questions out of the way now.

2. Tell us a little something about New Zealand, the type of place where you live in general is it a city rural, suburb and something you like about where you live?

Haha oh Bob, not scanning your questions before you shoot them off. I'm answering anyway! Lord of the Rings was largely shot in New Zealand. I live in the suburbs, and I like it because there is nature only 15 minutes away. Lovely!

3. What do you feel is the most important decision you will make:
a. This week: What to do for my birthday!
b. Next Year: What to pick for a major. Eep!
c. In the Next Ten Years: I can't think that far in the future...
d. In your whole life: Finding someone to love and that someone to love me too.

4. Your biggest concern in life about:
a. another person you know in real life is? I dunno, that everything will work out right for everyone I know? It's hard to say.
b. any other person is? Same answer :/
c. any event that has recently occurred is? Well it happened last fall but the decimation of the Common Ground Initiative by the Utah Legislature sure pissed me off. The threat of being fired because I'm gay is still alive and well in Utah.
d. Any war. Did I mention I'm a bit of a hippie? :P

5. We all that a lot of blogs are but few of the readers consistently comment on blogs
a. How do you feel about the number of coments you are receiving on your posts? Well I won't lie, I see people getting over 10 comments per post and that makes me quite jealous. I want more like everyone. Sheer number wise that is.
b. How do you feel about those you comment of your blog? Well I have to say I'm glad that you folks are out there commenting, which makes me really happy. I just wish sometimes you made your comments a bit longer lol, I guess I can't always get what I want :p haha.
c. Do you comment on the blogs you read a lot, why or why not? Well I try to, honestly I do, but sometimes it's hard. Especially when I've been gone a while. I usually don't make up comments i've missed. When you do get a comment from me, they are generally fairly lengthy, so I guess that makes up for the sparse numbers. If you want me to comment more, just email me so that you want them, and I probably will!
d. Do you block, delete, or moderate your comments in any way, including disallowing anonymous comments why or why not? Well considering I don't have to deal with anonymous commenters much, if at all, they don't bother me lol. I wouldn't want to delete comments or anything like that though, too much like censorship. That being said, I haven't ever gotten a mean comment so who knows how i'll react then.

6. You started a blog last April I believe (and you believe correctly!)
a. Have any major changes related to your blogging occured in your life since beginning to blog, that you want to share with us? Well... I can't really blog as much now that I've got a job. Plus I've lost a bit of anonymity since I started so I have to be a bit more careful in what I write about.
b. Is there a message you are trying to tell us through your blog? Not intentionally. However things you may be picking up on include the following: the absurdity of life, i'm gay, i like photography, don't make the mistakes I do.
c. Do you blog at a certain time of day? Well it's either in the mornings or the nigh time.
d. What do you think of anonymous commentators in general, should they be allowed? WEll sure, everyone has a voice. And besides, we've all started blogging with our anonymity in mind, why can't people comment with that same desire? Just don't be an asshole anonymously.

7. Photography it appears you love to take pictures and some of them are stunning btw (why thank you, thank you much), but:

a. What do you enjoy taking pictures of the most? Anything peculiar odd or different.
b. What kind of camera do you use? An old Nikon Coolpix 4600 I got years ago as a gift for my trip to Europe.
c. What is more enjoyable to you photography or music? Music. Pictures are cool, but they don't stir up my emotions like music does.

8. You write songs, play several instruments and seem to have a real understanding and love of music:

a. Who or what inspired you into music? I dunno, music did. I heard it, and wanted to be able to do it myself, so here I am.
b. What is your favorite instrument to play? The Guitar. It's what i'm most proficient in and so I can have more fun playing it. When I get up to speed on other instruments I may enjoy them more.
c. What is the subject matter of the song you most enjoy that you have written? Well I have enjoyed many of the songs that I've written. So I can't pick a favorite. Generally my songs have been about letting go of inhibitions, something I wish I could do easier.
d. Who is a better audience trees or people? Hahaha, well... that's a tough one. I would have to say people though. Even if they are ignoring you some of the time, when they listen you know, trees ignore you all of the time, or when they do listen, you're none the wiser.
e. Will you ever post you singing one of your songs on your blog? Well if I ever get some proper recording equipment, I may just do that. I want to share with you folk, but I am limited by technology or the lack thereof. Soon hopefully though!

9. Internet use
a. How many hours a day are you on the net on average? I've never really counted them out, but a lot I'm sure. If I had to guess, maybe 5-7 hours a day? maybe?
b. Can you break that down by time on blogs, MSN and other activities? No, because I have no idea. I'm pretty much always on MSN though, if I'm on the internet I'm on MSN.
c. Can you imagine life without the internet? No. Because such a life has never existed for me. It's the same problem I have with people complaining about gas prices. To me $3 a gallon is normal. When people say that $1 was the average and normal, that means nothing to me because that doesn't fit within my mind's capacity to imagine what I've not experience in some form or another. So to return to the internet, as long as I can remember there has been the internet so I can't possibly imagine a world without it.

Good god that was long. Hopefully the questions will be a bit shorter than those in the future.

Oh and here is your cutie Dan for making it this far.

What about Bob Pt. 1

So today I am going to start answering all of Bob's infamously lengthy list of questions. However I realize that I have no interest in doing them all at once, nor do you have interest in reading them all at once. So I will be posting everyday this week with some answers and whatever else is going on in my life (and a cute boy picture for Dan at the end
of everyone).

So without further ado, here is the first set of questions!

1. Matt I would like to get a few basics about what you look like for those of us who have never met you so :

a. What color eyes ands hair (ok before it was pink) do you have?

My hair is blond (never been pink lol and no I'm not going to edit the questions) and my eyes are "hazel" in that they change from blue to green depending on my outfit.

b. What is your height and weight?

I am 5'11'' (~180 cm) and about 150-160 lbs (68-72 kg).

b. how would you describe your skin color?

White. Well it's tan now thanks to the river :D

c. Do you have any identifying marks on you?

Not particularly. I have an odd birthmark thingy on my tummy below my belly button but it's tiny and no one ever sees it.

d. Do you have any other scars and would you share how you got them


I used to have several scars but they have all faded now. (Unless you count what the doctor did to my wee wee when I was but a wee wee), but i used to have an awesome pirate scar on my left arm, I got it running into this thing sticking out of a cart in a toys-r-us.

e. Is your six pack visible to others?

Bwahaahaha. What six pack? Oh the one under the keg? Oh... nope.

f. What do others think is your best physical aspect?

I dunno...

g. What do you think your best physical aspect is?

My facial profile. Haha. I like looking at my face in profile rather than head on. I dunno.

h. Do you have dimples, if so how many?

I guess when I smile I do...

i. Do you have freckles?

Not really

j. How is your tan line looking?

Pretty farmerish, but it's good. Thank you river!

k. how do you keep your self so skinny, we have all seen the body shot :)

I don't do anything really. Body takes care of it. But I have started doing crunches in the morning. So hopefully that will help drain the keg so I can bring out the six pack.

Ok that's all for questions for today!

Cute boys!

Up the Lazy River


Well hello everyone!

Finally I am clean shaven, with properly brushed teeth, clean non-greasy hair, regular food, clean clothed, and comfortably situated in a warm and proper bed.

It’s been a really fun week and tomorrow I go back to work… BOO!! Oh well. I figure I had better get this post up tonight or else I won’t be getting it up for a while.

So without further ado, here is my recap of the past week with pictures to enjoy as well!


Saturday: Finish packing, meet everyone, pack up the trailers (we had to take 5 of them, there were over 50 people in the Troop and Crew combined with adult leaders counted as well) and drive out to Camp New Fork in Wyoming.

 New Fork 002

Almost there


Sunday: Get situated in camp. Play around at the water front which we had to ourselves cause not many people arrive as early as us. Had a church service to go to in the morning. Choose your friends wisely was the message, not much room for diversity if you have to surround yourself with people who have similar values as you.


New Fork 011New Fork 006


Monday: Pack up everything for the river into three six gallon buckets. Float down the river for a short little while. Camp in a lovely little aspen grove in which the mosquitos were not so lovely. In fact they were damn right biblical in proportion. My legs still itch from bites.


New Fork 047

Some cute chicks

New Fork 039


New Fork 040  

Dizzying heights.


Tuesday: Long lazy float down the river. Saw Bald Eagles, Osprey, Hawks, Pelicans, and Blue Herons. Water fights in canoes. Cow bones. Solitude on the river. Grumpy Cattle Ranchers. Feelings of getting lost. Camp. Pit toilets.


Wednesday: Rapids! Made it safe through though. Took some pictures with a disposable waterproof camera, but haven’t gotten them developed yet, perhaps another post…


Thursday: More River, rocks, rapids, and one crazy fun dam.

 New Fork 048 New Fork 049 New Fork 051

From the River


Friday: Back to base camp. Day trip to more river/rapids. Swamped for the first time, fell out of canoe and floated down river for a bit. Cold water and bruised bum. Made the rest safely. Jumped off bridge several times. Back to base camp. Stayed up late around campfire with some good friends. Heart was warmed by the sight of one scout helping another out.


*Pause story to explain in detail*


In the troop there is one of the youngest scouts named William. Will is a really cute little kid. He was dropped on his head as a child though. No really, he brags about it. Real talkative kid but has trouble sometimes. He was finishing a woven seat for his basketry merit badge which he had to get finished by Saturday before we left camp. Well it was 11 at night on Friday and it still wasn’t done. One of the crew members, Eric, who is known to be quite the vile, crazy, and sometimes vicious kid, has a bit of a soft spot for William. Eric is a good kid though, and he stayed up late with Will helping him get his seat done. It nearly brought tears to my eyes to watch it.


*Back to story*


Friday continued: Won (sorta) an iron man race back at camp. It was running, canoeing and swimming. Twist, we had to keep a match dry. I was the first over the finish line, but my match was toast, ergo 10th place. However for the kids in the troop cheering me on, 1st over the line was 1st in their books. I won that iron man race three years ago, but we had an egg to protect. Got second but the guy before me cracked his egg, ergo 1st.


Saturday: Packed up and headed home.


There’s probably a lot I’ve missed. However I must save it for another post. Maybe I’ll do a follow up post to fill in any holes I may have missed.


Sorry for the length!


Get ready for another long one soon though, Bob finally sent me his list of questions. I look forward to the challenge of answering every last one of them.


Well, More Pictures and More Good Times to Come!




Saturday, July 25, 2009

I'm Back! Hooray!

Hey alls! I'm back from my trip!

It was really fun and details and pictures will be forthcoming!

Oooops... I don't really have much to say right now. Maybe later or tomorrow... Oh and as always I'm on msn so talk to me there!

Bubye for now!


Friday, July 17, 2009

Hello! Goodbye!

Oh geez... Where have I been...

Where haven't I been? That's a better question... I guess...

Man[s] and ladies?! perhaps? I dunnoooOooOoo...

I have been crazy busy lately. With work and play and living in general. I've been doing all sorts of stuff in the evenings and that makes it hard to get up in the mornings. Which makes it hard to blog in the mornings when I'm not too tired to put thoughts together. This post will take me forever I guarentee it. Time now:9:14 pm.

So yeah work. Been good. Making money. Keeping fit. Fucking exhausting I tells yah!

Play. Been hanging out with my friend Brent a lot lately. He's the weird one I'm sure I've mentioned before. He's burning me out. He's so negative all the time. Sure the adventures we go on are always a blast, but I feel like such a negative person afterwards. Oh well.

Plus I'm still reading blogs and such and chatting with some of you on the MSN (Warwick you're amazing!!) but it seems like someone somewhere is always hurting. It's hard keeping up. I've stopped commenting because most of the time I only have the energy to read about everything. I'm getting a bit burned out blogging too. I haven't been able to make posts and it gets easier and easier to let another day slip away.

Man I need a vacation.

Wait! This just in! I'm leaving tomorrow for a week!!!11!11one!111!  long vacation/camp!

That's right. I'm leaving tomorrow at 9 AM for summer camp. I'll be going up to Wyoming to a scout camp there. Not to brag or anything but my Troop has traditionally been the best at everything and summer camp is our time to shine. Of course I'm in the venture crew now, so that means I'll be going canoeing for 5 days. WhoOo! It's gonna be way fun and it'll be the break I need. So expect a well rested, recharged, and smelly/dirty/tired/exhausted/happy Matt when I return.

I will miss you all so very much!!

As per the standard rules when I'm gone, no fighting, unhappiness, drama, quitting without telling anyone, and most importantly, NO FUN WITHOUT ME!!! Cause I'll feel left out...


Oh and I’m just not gonna blog about this past week and all that because I can’t be bothered to go back and analyze everything right now. So when I get back I’ll just start afresh again!

So here are some pictures from my latest crazynesses.


Random Downtown 055 

A mountain of cookies that I baked!

Blog blog blog blog.

Didn't want to think of a title.

*yawn* slept really well last night. Like solidly. And I dreamed! And sorta remember them now! Which is rare cause I never do that!

So first dream, was about someone... haha can I be anymore clear, someone dear to me and they came over to my house, which was really weird because they would never do that, and he had friends with him, and they egged the house, but to be cool I egged it too (later to go clean it up real quick). Then everyone went out on my back porch.

Forward to other dream, I was some where on the coast with my family. I remember a board walk... and then this place off in a field, it was a shotgun range. I sat and watched and waited in line to get my turn with the pump action shotguns. When it was my turn I loaded two slugs and shot at the two slugs set off on the course. I think I missed them both :( Well as I was leaving appearently my family and I were going to sail across the bay (or some open body of water) and the guy at the shotgun place, a stout man with white hair and a white beard, said something like, "well it certainly got wavey didn't it? This morning it was really clear but now it's pretty bad." Then I remember walking down the dock putting on sunscreen and then seeing two boats and my brother in one and my dad in the other. I got into one of them put my feet in the hiking strap and leaned way out over the side of the boat. Then I woke up.

Ahh this is turning into a longer post than I wanted it to be!

So I had a bit of an interesting experience the other night. I was on a bit of a roll when it came to coming out. Told two. First friend actually surprisingly accepting, sort of shrugged it off. Not so interesting. However, with my second friend (whom I have showed this blog now, Hello out there second friend!) it was interesting, because after I came out he returned the favor. We spent the night talking about it and boys and while it was strange and odd at times, it was nice at the same time because now I feel I have someone "in real life" who understands and whom I can talk about.

So yeah... I dunno. I'm having trouble writing this morning, keep getting distracted. So I guess I'll distract you all with these...

Cute boys!

A bit more of a... "Stout" post today.

Wow I've been making long posts lately.

Time to shorten it up a bit.

Talked to one of my friends in Arizona today (the ones I went to go visit). I came out to him a few weeks ago through text and I haven't really talked to him since until last night. It was a little odd talking about boys to someone else, but he's really supportive and one of the best friends I could ask for. He even offered to be my wingman at the gay clubs... If only he wasn't in Arizona, well maybe there's August when he comes back...

Oh and I want a kitten, like real bad.

Cute boy!

He's my new desktop

Oh and if I could ever get my hair to look like that I would never get it cut except to maintain that glorious mane. Oh yeah I think I'm getting a haircut soon, or at the very least a trim.

I'm running out of farewells!

Rocky Mountain Hiiiiigh…

So I hiked a mountain Sunday.

Granduer Peak. 5 miles laterally. 1 mile up.

I don’t think I’ve ever had sweat drip off my nose like that before.

Well worth it though, good excercise and a great view.

Here, I’ll prove it.

A gate to adventure!

On the trail, it was pretty much up the whole way.

Wildflowers were beautiful.

On the way up.

I wonder if he’s related to that tree at the grand canyon…

Oh the polls basically show that you’re devilishly split on my insanity, but there’s at least 6 of you who are as insane as I am, watch out!

Oh and the anonymous roll call is serving it’s purpose. I have about 20 of you out there reading regularly that never show yourselves, I challenge at least 1/4 of you to make a comment!

Ok, this makes post #2 of the day, probably should have saved it for tomorrow but oh well…

See yahs,


Where it is that I blog from.


I have a few pictures that I’d like to share with you all.

Firstly I’ve been tagged in the “where you blog from” game.

I’ll admit, I didn’t expect to be tagged, but then lo and behold, I' was tagged twice. So I guess I have to do it, and a little more.

Oh and this damn skeeter bite on my ankle is driving me bonkers.


Look in the top left corner! First communion picture! I was such a good catholic boy, well on my way to becoming an altar boy… oh well.

I blog from my best most of the time, it’s private and comfortable, for the most part.

Blogoverse (1)

Notice what I’ve been getting away with as my desktop? Hehe. That hat I bought in Haiti too.

Blogoverse (2)

Every now and then I blog from here. Stick the computer on the end where that ice tea can is.

Blogoverse (9)

How I usually blog from the desk.

Blogoverse (8)

Sometimes I blog on the couch too.

Blogoverse (3)

Where I do NOT blog from…

Blogoverse (6)

Where I Bake from…

Blogoverse (4)

The view from my bed. Yes that is a map of the world on my ceiling, and no it’s not upside down, you are.

Blogoverse (5)

I actually have a bit of a collection of Rosaries going on… Also I have no idea where the Jesus picture came from but it’s just lived in that corner of my room for a while. Oh and I haven’t been to church since Christmas Eve…

So that’s where I blog from!

Now to tag…

Ken over at the new Re-named (but still kinda dirty (sorry! XD)) Adjusting Myself

Courage, you’re up as well.

Mikey, I’m sure you’ve been tagged but here we are again.

Whenever Almishboi gets back, he’s been tagged.

Landyn over at the fancy new Stuck in the Middle.

And finally, I know you’ve been tagged, but damnit, I wanna tag you too! Dan of Dailydan.

Okidoke, how’s that for a post that’s not overloaded and enjoyable to read. Oh and I’ll talk about the poll soon (I know I’ve sorta just ignored it).

Until next time biznitches,

--- Matt
