Am I alone in wanting August to just end? Of all the months of the year, it's my least favorite. Or perhaps I should say most disliked. Especially here on the East Coast. Milky skies, heavy, humid air, drooping tree leaves -- a kind of soiled look to things.

Apparently not everyone is a Beach Freak or lately being renamed:

TANOREXIC! LOL

 

Granted the Humidity this Summer has been unusually HIGH! BUT Great for working on my George Hamilton Personna!

 

But with Nice Sea Breezes.. I for one will definitely take looking at Hunky Guys with little clothes on working on a Tan, to the very depressing oncoming Fall & Winter with alot of Clothes and looking jaundiced! ;-)

And the escorting biz (at least in NYC) seems to dry up for the entire month. I think folk with money take off for the Hamptons or whatnot and what tourists we get have their kids in tow. Then September comes along, and it's all back to normal.

 

I notice in the 'escort travels' section that a few escorts are visiting NYC in the coming weeks. I'd just like to add my two cents that if these trips don't work out for them, they may want to come back at a better time of year; don't write the city off based on an August visit.

I agree. August is my least favorite month of the year and this weather sucks! It's been an unusually hot and humid summer here in NYC. I can't wait for the cooler weather to begin.

 

Don't you think this lousy economic environment and high prices has something to do with less traveling escorts and a slowdown in client activity? It costs a small fortune to get on an airplane these days and let's face it, those of us with investment accounts have seen the value of our portfolios drop along with everyone else. The skyrocketing cost of oil has had its effect, not only at the pump, but also in the cost of consumer goods.

 

In the meantime, I've booked a bunch of activities which will hopefully keep me occupied for the remainder of this month and it will pass quickly.

I'm pretty sure that the ECONOMY being what it is.. Aug-Sept or any other Month in the forseeable future is definitely going to effect the Working Guys! The Temps might "go down" but I'm thinking less Clients will be going down!

 

Hopefully the Guys have other means of an Income. "Paying the Rent" ain't as easy as it used to be for the "Average" Working Guy or his "Average" Client! ;-)

Even here in Southern California I am not particularly fond of August or September for that matter. Everything is brown, hot and burned. We had two extremely HOT weeks in June but July was fantastic. During the entire month of July the temperature was seldom above the mid 80's and we are told that it will continue for at least another week. As far as I'm concerned San Diego has about the best year around weather IN THE WORLD. Now my idea of good weather is temperature between 68 and 72, a slight breeze and all rain between midnight and 4 a.m. - in other words San Diego. Many tourists make the mistake of visiting Southern California in the heat of summer yet the best month to visit is probably April. By then our rains, that is if we get any, are over and everything is green and blooming. Temperatures are usually in the high 60's and the skys are clear.

I have always loved summer heat, so I never disliked August for itself. However, in my East Coast days, I usually found August depressing, because I knew what would inevitably follow: increasing darkness, bare trees, snow and icy winds, and (re: JT Brooklyn) no more hot guys revealingly dressed or undressed. Since I worked an academic calendar, Labor Day also meant the end of freedom for another year. Now that I'm retired and live in the warm, sunny desert, none of that matters.

When I was a boy, August was always the month the family would rent a cottage on Lake Michigan. Sure, it had an outhouse, but then, it was only $35 a week! Now, refurbished, it goes for hundreds.

 

Beyond that, Jesus, in His infinite wisdom, chose August as the month to send me forth into this world. Surely that makes the month memorable for all who will read about me in the history books, not to mention those of you having had the privilege of meeting me! :7

I'll agree that the best part of summer is that you get to see what everyone has -- or doesn't have -- in tri-s, bis, pecs. I go down the street and in three minutes see at least six guys I want to lay.

 

But I loooooooveeeeeeee fall. I find it the most stimulating time of year for writing, reading and fucking. And now that I'm free to do just that and all that -- throw in intelligent movies and new theater -- and it's my favorite time of year. Granted,

it heads to the dark, depressing days of December.

 

 

But August just seems like a month to be endured, gotten through.

 

I'll take EdJames' cue and keep busy. Good advice.

Funny, but I had never heard August described as a least favorite month up until now.

 

Personally, I like all seasons and the only month where I get depressed is February.

 

I think that allround the seasons are better on the west coast than the east,(and I've lived in both places and inbetween too) although there is something about a Nantucket summer or a crisp Vermont fall that is very appealing.

 

My favorite time of the year is after we turn the clocks back and it is dark by 5 o'clock. Time for a nice martini or scotch & water before dinner in front of a roaring fire. Nothing could be finer....

As a lifelong resident of Minnesota - The Land of 10,000 Lakes, I've been fortunate to spend August nearly every year either living on or vacationing very near freshwater. Let me tell ya, there's no better way to beat the heat. :p A midnight swim before bedtime - awesome!! }(

I was SHOCKED to read someone dissing August, my favorite month! But then I understood that if you live in warmer climes than I do, August can suck. That's the reason Florida is miserable in August, to mention nothing of the threat of hurricanes.

 

In the northern areas of North America, August is a fabulous time, especially if you can get out to the country and enjoy nature's beautiful playgrounds. I am fortunate in having a recreational property of a beautiful lake in the Laurentians. On an August day when the wind is up, nothing is finer than flying over the water in my sailboat, with the spray in my face and drenching my suntanned legs!

 

In the city, August is when the boy-watching hits its stride in Montreal. This weekend is the start of Gay Pride and while the number of tourists is down, there was still some fetching eye candy on the pedestrian mall that Ste Catherine has become for the summer.

 

All-in-all, give me August any time, I love it! :p :9

Sunday was our Gay Pride parade in Vancouver as well. Estimated 400,000 turned out to see it. We've come a long way since Stonewall.

>The one good thing about August is that it puts you one month

>closer to October (thank you Helen Hunt Jackson)

 

Good perspective. October is my favorite time of year.

For you Lankypeters:

 

October

 

O SUNS and skies and clouds of June,

And flowers of June together,

Ye cannot rival for one hour

October's bright blue weather;

 

When loud the bumblebee makes haste,

Belated, thriftless vagrant,

And goldenrod is dying fast,

And lanes with grapes are fragrant;

 

When gentians roll their fingers tight

To save them for the morning,

And chestnuts fall from satin burrs

Without a sound of warning;

 

When on the ground red apples lie

In piles like jewels shining,

And redder still on old stone walls

Are leaves of woodbine twining;

 

When all the lovely wayside things

Their white-winged seeds are sowing,

And in the fields still green and fair,

Late aftermaths are growing;

 

When springs run low, and on the brooks,

In idle golden freighting,

Bright leaves sink noiseless in the hush

Of woods, for winter waiting;

 

When comrades seek sweet country haunts,

By twos and twos together,

And count like misers, hour by hour,

October's bright blue weather.

 

O sun and skies and flowers of June,

Count all your boasts together,

Love loveth best of all the year

October's bright blue weather.

 

Helen Hunt Jackson (nee Fiske 1830 - 1885)

Actually, August is my favorite month of the year. It's my birthday month!! I turned 46 on August 1. :-) Consequently its my traditional vacation time, currently taking a few days off work, and the start of my personal New Year's resolutions. And yes, I have every single characteristic of a typical Leo. ;-)

One of the joys of summer in NYC..."Hair" at the Delecorte Theater in Central Park.

 

I went last night. An incredible production of this historic show! An energetic and talented cast, and yes, they all strip down at the end of the first act.
