So, nerves still slightly frazzled, still not knowing quite what to do, I returned to the old room with Larry and we all moved to the new one. After turning the TV on for a little noise, I decided it would be I who would bridge the gap between Larry and Sean. I worked my hands up each of their shorts and made comments about what I found. One thing led to another and we were all on one bed. From there, clothes came off and the moment got pretty hot and heavy. (And ironically, it was Sean and Larry who were having the most fun... together.) It seemed hard to believe that someone so into the spirit of the "event" as Sean was could be so inexperienced. If I'd enjoyed those hours as much as he did, neither hell nor high water could have kept me from dating another guy. Of course, I guess it was literally hell that had reserved Sean for it was being a Mormon that had stopped him from "partaking."
By 4AM, the fun had been spent and Sean reluctantly said that he needed to head home. Larry and I offered for him to stay, but he said that he had to get up early to go visit a friend up north. We took a few pictures then I walked Sean to his car. We said good-bye, and he drove off. Larry and I fell asleep shortly thereafter.

From Sunday, August 11, 1996
On Sunday morning, Larry and I got up and headed westward to Las Vegas. A few hours later, we'd talked about the night before nearly non-stop and had arrived at the Rio hotel. We gambled at the blackjack tables and spent a good deal of time in the suite hotel room. During the night, we called Sean to see how he was doing and he was noticably upset. I'm not sure if it was then or a couple days later, but during one of our phone conversations he said that he wanted a wife and kids. Yep, this guy who had written me such lovey dovey letters and who'd had such a great time, had turned straight. I couldn't believe it, but I knew talking was pointless. He said that Larry and I were "too comfortable" with ourselves. He didn't want to think that he was normal. He wanted to hate himself, and nothing I could say would change his mind.
By nightfall, we'd lost a few hundred dollars, but had a superb time. The only flaw in the night was feeling bad for Sean.
Monday morning, we got up, gambled some more, lost a few hundred more, then drove on to L.A.
In the next few weeks...
- I drank too much Vodka then barfed at Citywalk.
- I went to Larry's dentist and had 3 cavities. The dentist poked me with some sort of rod and all I could do was think of Steve Martin's character in The Little Shop of Horrors. He certainly seemed to "get off on the pain he inflict(ed)." The cavities have since been filled and I'm scheduled to return in three months.
- Lance stayed all night with Larry and I and has since left the picture due to some dumb moves on his part and a little overreacting by Larry.
- Larry and I went back to Las Vegas for three days at Treasure Island. I had the most fun gambling downtown. During the trip, we went to see the show "Crazy Girls," a topless female revue. We'd gotten free tickets because a friend of Larry's was the comedianne between the acts. Both of us got about as excited as if we were watching a can of soup. It's pretty certain: We're gay. When the show was over, we talked with Larry's friend/comedianne Carol who walked us into the female impersonator show upstairs. It was outrageous and much more entertaining. I laughed until I started to cry.
- I went to the university owned apartments on Monday, August 26th (2 days after official move-in day since on the 24th, Larry and I were in Las Vegas.) One of my roommates turned out to be a major pot smoker from Washington, D.C.. By the time I left the apartment this past Thursday, there were five huge Bob Marley posters in the living room. And speaking of leaving the apartment this past Thursday, it was, and will be, the last time I leave the apartment because I moved out. I never really moved in because it was much easier staying here at Larry's and because I missed him when I was there. This past week when I went to my room between classes, I found that my bed had been slept in and on Thursday, an alarm clock had been placed on my desk. That was enough and so I had Larry call, pretending to be my dad, and he found that breaking the housing contract wouldn't be a problem due to USC's housing overpopulation.
- On Thursday, August 29, Larry and I went to West Hollywood for a night of clubbing. Although I'd only had one real day of classes, I was pretty depressed that I didn't meet anyone... and I mean, meet anyone, male/female friend/potential boyfriend, not anyone. I told Larry that I'd like to go to West Hollywood and why and so, we went. We first stopped at Micky's where Larry and I danced briefly and had a couple drinks. It had been a while since I'd used my ID, but I managed to get into the club with no hassle whatsoever. After a few minutes of crusing, the go-go boy came out and I started drooling. Actually, "drool" isn't quite the right term. I definitely had fun staring at him shake his body and almost reveal himself, but I wasn't enamoured. So anyway, I stared for a while, braved to put a dollar in his briefs, then we went to Rage. There, someone grabbed my butt as we walked through and then we left. Although I still didn't meet anyone, it was a fun night.
