Our first Holloween in this neighborhood...

... and we had more "Trick or Treat"ers than we had in ten years in our old neighborhood.

That, actually, made us feel good.

We had special "treats" for kids between the age of 2 and 6. The got Play Doh in their packages. TheHusband always makes packages, so we never give out one or two pieces per kid.

TheHusband put part of an old costume one. He looked like a Priest. Some Scarry Shit.

I dressed like him.

I used bird seed for the "extra special part".

I'll bet he was born late...

... TheHusband that is.

I'll bet he was late to school almost every day.

I know he was late for our first "date".

He is usually late for work.

He is almost always late for his doctors appointments, and mad when they make him wait.

If I need him to be ready at a specific time, I tell him to be ready an hour earlier than I need him to be.

He decided to buy a pumpkin tonight so he could carve it. He was mad when there weren't any worth purchasing.

An email I received...

... and since I don't have all of your addresses, I post it here. Otherwise, I'd send it to each of you.

Feel free to pass it on.

I just heard from...

... TheHusband's nephew. He's down south in Ft. Lauderdale. I've been trying to get ahold of him since Sunday.

He is fine, staying with his girlfriend. They still don't have power, but they have an gas water heater and a gas stove, so they can eat, and shower, not necessarily in that order.

He says his mom and step-dad (and their child) are fine, but planning a trip up here, since they aren't supposed to get power until the middle of next month. He hasn't heard from his other sister (the lesbian).

I'm starting to see a trip down south in our future.

Won't you be, my neighbor...?

Why wasn't Mike Rogers all over this story? My guess?

He's a Democrat.

Star Trek star George Takei comes out

Actor George Takei, best known as Mr. Sulu on the classic TV series Star Trek , comes out of the closet in the new issue of Frontiers . Or rather, as he tells editor Alexander Cho, "It's not really coming out, which suggests opening a door and stepping through. It's more like a long, long walk through what began as a narrow corridor that starts to widen." In the interview, the 68-year-old actor also discusses his childhood in a Japanese-American internment camp, his 18-year relationship, his siblings' inability to accept his homosexuality, and the upcoming Los Angeles production of Equus in which he stars.

I swear, my Gaydar has always gone off each time I've watched the episode "Mirror, Mirror" from the original series. Him, with his shirt off, and that damned sexy scar.

Of course, I was still in diapers when the episode originally aired.

It's not the same thing...

...that is:

Saying you are not a mother, is not the same thing as saying you've never had a baby.

Not that I don't believe her, I do, actually.

I don't get it...

... and I've asked my ultra-straight, but extremely-accepting-older-brother for an explanation. Unfortunately, he's off hunting Bambi or something, so he's out of touch for the next week or so.


Beuller? Beuller???

I've been holding on to this...

...for a while. So maybe I wanted to keep it to myself. I don't know why, really. It makes me happy. Again, I don't know why.

Mr. Britney Spears, in (almost) all his glory.

I got it from Celebrity Bulge Blog, not that I read that website everyday or anything... and I know, he's hardly a "celebrity"

Yeah, I'd keep him around for a while, too.

I just had to lighten the mood of this blog, is all.

Here's why I asked...

I have "pontifityped" before about "gay terrorists". they come in many forms. It's my definition, to be sure, but two come to mind. I've posted about both of them before, here and here.

But here is the reason for this post.

Recently, a writer at the Washington Blade, a gay newspaper (think the Contax guide [you guys in central Florida know what I mean]combined with the Washington Post. It's a newspaper, yeah sure, but it's for the Gay comunity in the Washington D.C. area. There are good writers working for it... award winning writers, but I have a problem with a recent column.

Here is the link. Linky

I understand why the editors let the comment be printed without fear of being sued. He didn't actually say he'd had sex with Sheppard, he just let you believe that Sheppard wanted to...

But one of the silly queens -that I've called a "gay terrorist" before -ran with that. He had decided that this means that Sheppard has been "outed" and therefore he can report it without his own hands getting dirty. It got picked up by other blogs, here and here.

There is no proof. And I mentioned it, here.

But then, there was this.

He is right, and it's a good question. I've been in this person's shoes. It was before DADT policy was in place, of course. Hell, it was the reason I voted for Bill Clinton in 1992 to begin with. But then he let us down. It was the last time I voted for a Democratic President.

So, what did the other "commenters" do to poor 'craigD' ? Attack, my friends. To wit. Here, here, here, here and here.

And what does Michael do? Wipe his hands, since he really didn't do anything wrong. That nasty reporter over there at the Washington Blade did it all. He just mentioned it.

And besides... as long at they aren't Democrats, it's okay to report on them.

And just for the records sake, it wasn't all that okay when Pete Williams was outed, oh so long ago... and Al Franken's book might not be the best source if you want people to turn against the "almight FoxNews channel".

Thank you all for joining in.

So, I put up my original post because I was asking the same question as one of the commenters on Michael's site, which was: what if I were a secretary at FoxNews? Would it be okay to out me?

I say: Not on your fucking life, and I'd come after your ass.

If you are goinge to sende hate mail...

... best to use the spell check first.

Spit take of the day.

I have a question...

... and I want your response on it. Let me set the scene:

I am a gay man. I work for a company that may, or may not, like homosexuals. I don't think they have ever come out and said "All Butt-Pirates Must Die", or anything like that, but they tend to be on the conservative side. Any-who, I work for the company because they sign a paycheck for me. They asked me to do a job, and I have no problem doing that job. I don't say anything that I don't agree with, and I don't do anything that I don't want to do, either.

You don't like the company I work for.

Is it okay for you to tell everyone that I am a gay man and cause me to (possibly) lose my job?

Please, pontifitype in the comments.

UPDATE: Sorry kids, I should have been more specific. This "question" is not, I repeat, NOT about me. Although I am not currently "out" at work, it's only because no one has asked me. I've been on my job for a year, but the subject -as the case should be- hasn't come up. I have been "out" at my last four jobs, with no qualms about it.

Thanks for the responses so far, keep 'em coming.

P.S. re: 'pontifitype'. I made it up, LOL!!

Saturday, October 22, 2005

Thank goodness...

I woke up this morning with the strangest sensation that I had been "drunk blogging" last night.

I don't know why. Yeah, sure, I'd had a beer or two at my favorite pub, but I was home in plenty of time to watch a repeat of the best science fiction show on television last night.

Still, it was a relief to find out I hadn't.

I think it's a mistake...

... to say "No" to this production.

'Buffy' Stage Show Shut Down
(Thursday, October 20 10:35 AM)
LOS ANGELES ( Dark forces have shut down in a stage production of the musical episode of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." But instead of demons, it was lawyers who put a stake in the show.

CounterPulse, a nonprofit arts group in San Francisco, had been planning to stage 10 performances of "Once More, with Feeling," the season-six "Buffy" episode in which a musical demon puts a Broadway-style curse on the residents of Sunnydale. The group planned to re-enact the script word-for-word, augmented by a live band and dancers.

Local media picked up the story, which quickly spread to other news outlets (including this one) and numerous "Buffy" fan sites. Word apparently also got to 20th Century Fox, which spelled the beginning of the end for the stage show.

What if Sherwood Schwartz had said the same thing about one of his most famous creations?

We would never have been blessed with these two campy classics.

Besides, I know a lot of Homos who would have gone to see it. And see it.. and see it....

"Uhm.... duh" moment...

My friends, if you saw tonights episode of South Park, and didn't figure out that they were talking about Hurricane Katrina and the aftermath, you are simply stupid.

Reminds me of the episode where "Kenny" was in a coma, which had nothing to do with anything other than Terry Schiavo.

You had to be totally stupid not to figure that one out, either.

"I'm lovin' it"...

... that is to say, THIS idea.

I am wondering if he needs a correspondent for the South Orlando / I-Drive area. Not that I live there, but I frequent the area because of my j-o-b.

The commercial worked...

... I fell for their marketing campaign. I wondered what "It" was. Damn them! Damn them to Hell, I tell you!

The clue is in the color scheme. If that's not enough, you can go to their website and feel as stupid as I am.

I felt so used.

"Reporting from Orange County..."

No pumpkin, you aren't.

Would someone please explain to our local news stations that their reporters are NOT "reporting from Orange County"... if they are standing outside the doors to their own studios?

I know, I know, it's a picky complaint on my part, and technically it's true, but still. What is the point of doing a live shot from the studio's parking lot, unless you are talking about... uhm... er... parking in the studio's lot?

But reporting on how, say, the inhabitants of the viewing population are preparing for this weekends 'hurricane' blah blah blah... I'm thinking you could be standing inside the studio just as well as outside.

And I know you are standing in the parking lot. I recognize the traffic pattern behind you.

Oh gods...

... at least they've waited until now to start the Christmas commercials.

It makes you hate the season.

Sorry, I've been detained...

... by upgrading my computer.

I should have known better, of course. I work for an industry (that depends on the "hospitality industry", and "we manager technology". I don't want to be any more specific than that, execpt that I am a typist in a company that employs a myriad of computer technicians. Again, I am a typist. I should have known better.

So, after hours upon hours, I finally called one of our technicians, since I had his "work" cell phone number. He knew when answering that I was desperate, or I wouldn't call. I have rules, and he respects them. He is, after all, the ONLY person in the company that even has my cell phone number. So it is important, and he knew when I called, that that I wouldn't have called it it hadn't been important.

And yet I said to him, first thing... "It's personal, do you have time to discuss it?" He said that he did.

He didn't help me, but that didn't matter. The point was, he made the time for me.

Be carefull ordering...

... that pizza.

You'll need volume, but other than that, it's perfectly safe for work. Before you ask, I got this from Click on his site, you might find things before I do...

Since I put up this...

... THIS post, I've realized I need to figure out how to make catagories for this blog. It's all the rage, I guess. But I digress...

Remind me again, why I am barred from adopting children in this state, and people who can do this or this?

Not that either of these cases had anything to do with adoption. The point is, straight people are hurting their own children left and right, and yet the only thing that our state government cares about is keeping them away from the homos.

Hacked while he slept...

Sometime during the night, as he slept peacefully, CPAP machine thingy strapped to his body, Andrew Sullivan's website was hacked. To wit:

Don't ask my why it thinks my name is Karen...

... because I don't know. But 126 can't be bad, can it?

Try it yourself.

It's just a joke

My elder brother, who is much more conservative than I am, sent me this joke. I didn't realize it was a joke until the punchline. I laughed out loud. Here it is:

Jesse Jackson, while visiting a primary school class, found himself in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asks the Rev. Jackson if he would like to lead the discussion on the word "tragedy." So the illustrious leader asks the class for an example of a "tragedy." One little boy stood up and offered: "If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a runaway tractor comes along and knocks him dead, that would be a tragedy." "No," says the Great Jesse Jackson, "that would be an accident. A little girl raised her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone
inside, that would be a tragedy." "I'm afraid not," explains the exalted spiritual leader. "That's what we would call a great loss". The room goes silent. No other children volunteer. Rev. Jackson searches the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?" Finally at the back of the room a small boy raises his hand. In a quiet voice he says: "If a plane carrying the Rev. Jackson were struck by a missile and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy." "Fantastic!"
exclaims Jackson, "That's right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?" Well," says the boy, "because it sure as hell wouldn't be a great loss, and it probably wouldn't be an accident either."

And the world is flat, too...

This weekend's catastrophic earthquake in South Asia in the wake of recent U.S. hurricanes and December's tsunami is catching the eye of televangelist Pat Robertson, who says we "might be" in the End Times described in the Bible.

"These things are starting to hit with amazing regularity," Robertson said on CNN's "Late Edition."

Robertson, a former GOP presidential candidate and host of the "700 Club" daily Christian TV show, noted, "If you read back in the Bible, the letter of the apostle Paul to the church of Thessalonia, he said that in the latter days before the end of the age that the Earth would be caught up in what he called the birth pangs of a new order. And for anybody who knows what it's like to have a wife going into labor, you know how these labor pains begin to hit. I don't have any special word that says this is that, but it could be suspiciously like that."

"What was called the blessed hope of the Bible is that one day Jesus Christ would come back again, start a whole new era, that this world order that we know would change into something that would be wonderful that we'd call the millennium," he continued. "And before that good time comes there will be some difficult days and there will be likened to what a woman goes through in labor just before she brings forth a child."

When asked if the world was approaching that moment, Robertson said, "It's possible. I don't have any special revelation to say it is but the Bible does indicate such a time will happen in the end of time. And could this be it? It might be."

Yeah, right. Aren't you the same guy that said "A condition like this will bring about ... earthquakes, tornadoes, and possibly a meteor" because the city of Orlando had displayed gay flags during pride week a few years ago?

Whatever, freak.

Girl Sues School

For taking away a "fictional" story she wrote and and then suspending her from school because of it. Here is a sample of her story:
"... as I walk to school from my sisters car my stomach ties itself in nots. I have nervousness tingeling up and down my spine and my heart races. No one knows what is going to happen. I have the gun hidden in my pocket. I cross the lawn and hed to my locker on A hall. Smiling sweetly to my friends hoping they dont notice the cold sweat that has devloped on my forhead. Im walking up to the front office when the bell rings for class to start. so afraid that I think I might pass out. I ask if my mother dropped off a book I need. No. My first to classes pass by my heart thumping so hard I'm afraid every one can hear it. Constantly I can feel the gun in my poked. 3rd peroid, 4th, 5th then 6th peroid my time is comming. I enter the class room my face pale. My stomach has tied itself in so many knots its doubtful I will ever be able to until them. Then he starts taking role. Yes, my math teacher. I lothe him with every bone in my body. Why? I don't know. This is it. I stand up and pull the gun from my pocked. BANG the force blows him back and every one in the class sits there in shock..." (sic)

She should be suing them because they forgot to teach her how to spell, use punctuation, and for that matter, compose a complete sentence.

Or, even better, the school should be suing her for not doing her homework.

I don't know how old this is...

... but it makes me laugh every time I read it.

"I tell you, when a homosexual is sucking your cock, a lot of strange thoughts go through your head: How the hell did this happen? Where did this fairy ever get the idea that I was gay? And where did he get those fantastic boots?"

As they say on all those smarty pants blogs I read every day, READ THE WHOLE THING!

Maybe it really WAS a horror movie...

... and I'm just to big a homo to have noticed.

She's back.

And I'm glad.

I stopped watching Will and Grace...

... a couple of years ago. It wasn't their fault, really. I took a job that required that I was on-site early early early in the morning, and I was there until late at night. By the time I got home, I was too tired to watch television. Add that to the shitty medications I was on for this silly infection I have, and it was easy to fall asleep during an episode.

Last year, when I was, ahem... "unceremoniously removed" from that job, I returned to watching TV, but they kept fucking with the schedule. It seems that "The Donald" got the "Will and Grace" time slot. I don't like Donald. I never have. And following "Joey"? Please, make that stop, now. Which is fine, since "CSI:The only one worth watching" is on CBS at the same time.

This year, their final, I decided to watch again. Especially after I heard they were going to do a "LIVE" season premier. I love live shows, in particular, comedy live shows. Remember the "Carol Burnett Show"? Tim Conway? Same idea.

I watched. Malcontent has the highlights here. These weren't all the best lines, but they all made me laugh.

And so, I will watch again tonight. I am, after all, a big softee. It's their last season, and I will laugh and cry with them.

Have I mentioned that one of my favorite movies is "Steele Magnolias"? I watched it, yet again, this weekend. Once again, I could quote all the lines, before they came out, and yet found myself laughing and crying... lots of crying... before it was over.

Best Friends

And there is nothing wrong with that.

That's some funny shit.

But... who's the father?

Hey, if it's true, congratulations.

Still doesn't mean that I don't think he is a dick, because I do.

This month's Out Magazine

Look who is on the cover:

Yummy yummy yummy.

I don't care that he is straight. Good for him. If the movie is any good, it only means he's a good actor, and really, isn't that all that matters?

I would still suck his dick. (And me sucking his dick wouldn't make him gay, right?)

Dude... get over it.

You didn't get the part.

Cage Is a Dad Again

How long until...

... the gay leftist websites/blogs that the President's nominee to the Supreme Court, Harriet Meirs, is a lesbian? She's 60 years old, has no children, and has never been married.

Three.... two.... one....

UPDATE (6:00 p.m.):
Boy was I right. And, BTW, it's okay with me that he is getting all the credit for saying it "first".


UPDATE # 2(8:00 p.m.): Conservatives hate the choice. Liberals hate the choice.

Doesn't that make her perfect?

It's just a question.
