WHAT IS BAREBACKING?

That is what Oprah Winfrey (did I really need her last name?) asked on today's show.

Her guest, this gay guy who had talked about "bug" chasing told her he barebacked. After he confirmed what is was she said, "That's what I thought."

Oh, Oprah...

MY CONVERSATION WITH JIM McGREEVY

I'm at a party in Chelsea in a loft and I've had a few drinks. And Governor (or former Governer) Jim McGreevy is smooching with other guests. It's a benefit for a gay and lesbian organization. Should I talk to Jim?, I ask. Sure.

Me: Hi Jim. You know Anthony and Joshua as well? (Who just left).
Jim: Yes.
Me: OMG! They're friends of mine. (I just met them...)

Jim and I engage in some really small talk, most of which I don't really even remember.

Jim: Are you Chinese?
Me: Yes, but I was born in Viet Nam.
Jim: My good friend Albert is Chinese but was born in Viet Nam too!
Me: Cool! (Not really...)

I can't really remember, but maybe a few more awkward moments of silence.

Jim: Do you want to talk to Albert?
Me: (Huh? What?) Yes!

Jim pulls his Treo cellphone and calls Albert. I grab his phone and I talk to Albert. I don't remember much except that I was like, Let's hang out. And Albert was like, Yeah! We hung up and I give the phone back to Jim. Weird....
