In this episode I sit down to gossip with one of my favorite gossipers my cousin Maritza. We went for a trip down memory lane to discuss some of our favorite memories some are less gruesome than the others. My favorite memory of us was her prom where she went dressed up as Selena. I was like girl its prom not halloween. But she insisted.
Listen to us laugh a lot as we retell the stories. We have so many more stories that we weren’t able to share so hopefully we can share some more with you in the future.
Hello everyone and happy PRIDE Month. This episode was recorded in celebration of the Pride48 Live June Event to celebrate Pride Month worldwide. Just a heads up its my FIRST LIVE show and it was a live mess.
In this episode, I sit down with my dear friend Kaylin. Kaylin and I have been friends for about two and a half years. He was one of the first guys I met when I first moved to Sacramento in 2013. Kaylin is a Libra and can be very wishy washy other than that, he is an around good hearted, drag queen loving, jewelry making all american boy who likes boys. OHHHH and did I mention… he’s single?
Michelle is my most recent bestie. I know I skipped a few, but I never said it would be in any particular order so calm down. As most of my stories have begun, I met Michelle at work in October of 2014 when she showed for her first day. I remember meeting her, but not exactly knowing what to think of her. So I did what I do best, kept to myself and put distance between us.
About two weeks after we started spending our lunches together, we discovered we have so much in common, particularly the fact that we are both the eldest children and are both super bossy!
What I love most about Michelle is how giving she is. She gives, gives, and gives and expects nothing in return. She is always down to help out a friend in need and has been here for me on so many occasions. Michelle is such a bright light in my life. She is so positive and full of life. She puts off that good energy that everyone wants to be around. She may say things I’ve never heard like “Holy Toledo,” but I still love her.
With that, I’d like to introduce to you my sixth guest: Michelle Martino.
I met Tony in 2012 when I moved to Sacramento after my job was about to lay me off! I took a transfer and it was one of the best decisions I ‘ve made. I met Tony on Grindr and after a few times of hanging out with him we just clicked and became really good friends.
Tony is loyal to a fault, a very common trait in a Virgo. It takes a lot for me to trust another guy. I don’t keep very many guy friends for this reason. Tony and I recently reconnected after about 8 months of not keeping in touch and its good to have him back in my life, I hope he feels the same.
Soon after Tony and I met we were inseparable. Hell we were double trouble otherwise known as #TRoman and were know to bring sexy, latino, drunk, horny and FUN to you.
I love this guy!
With that Id like to introduce to you my fifth guest Tony Zavala the T in TRoman!
Blanca is one of the most sensitive persons I know. It took me a long time to get to know this because she puts up a chola front. Blanca is funny, protective and sensitive all wonderful traits to have. She usually will stay quiet as long as she can but when she is done you’ll know because she will try to cut you. She is my down as bitch, she is the type you want in your corner and never against you. S he adds fun to my life, she not only listens she cares and is super genuine. Although she is beautiful she suffers from RBF but its ok because we both have that in common.
I can’t recall the exact year I met Grace and can only guestimate it was around 2008 while I was working at US Bank. I remember walking into work one day and she was there pretending not to like me but to her surprise I didn’t like her either, or so I thought. After a few days we decided we were great together and decided to become besties. Grace is such a positive person and always can see the best in things. She has an infections laugh that is so unique anytime you hear it, you’ll know its her!
Grace has a quality that I don’t have but have I always wanted. She can always see the best in every situation and remains positive even when it’s pretty negative. She was the very first person I cried to after being diagnosed with testicular cancer and after all of that. She just held me, let me cry and then made me laugh and for that I will always love her.
After we spoke we were just texting each other with fun things that got us into trouble and even then I was LOL’n. I can’t wait to have her back.
Liz is the original bestie, when its all said and done she has been there since 1996. I would describe her as smart, sensitive with the right amount of strong, the kind of strong that most women aren’t. But I guess to be my friend you have to be that right kind of strong. She describes herself as beautiful, caring and stubborn. Although Liz and I go back thru the years many of them have come and gone with us not being in each other’s lives, our friendship is pretty easy and carries itself. Its cool that we can pick up the phone and know we are there for each other. I know that if I call her she will drop whatever she is doing to make sure I am ok. I hope she knows that id do the same for her. Liz is one of the very few people I trust completely and I spill my secrets to. This Bitch however, tends to be one of the last people I call because she is a lot like me in the sense that she will tell me what I don’t want to hear.
Welcome to the very first episode of The Book of Roman. The Book of Roman is a podcast of my life where I will share experiences with you past and present. I have never been a person to have many friends and prefer to have four quarters instead of one hundred pennies. I will take you on a journey to reconnect with these friends. I like to think that everyone comes into your life for a reason and they are needed in your life when that happens. However, as we both continue to move thru the path of life and are pulled in different directions we have lost touch. I would like to use this podcast to share my stories and my friends with you. Like the saying goes, “good friends are like stars, you don’t always see them but you know they are always there!” I have decided to try and reach out to all the friends in my life going back to high school. In addition, I have been told that I am the Dear Abbey to many. So if you have any questions you want my guest and me to answer please submit it on the website so that we may provide some feedback.
My first guest is my loving wonderful boyfriend. He needs no further introduction, as he’s pretty cool. Press play and listen to us!
