I'm With the Queers

Loved this pic and had to post it to all those puppy-owned glbt people out there. (And also in memory of Charles Deepdale A., Caliban E., and Sasha W.) The shirt reads: "Canis Queerus (I Can't Even Bark Straight)"

Found it with a few other things for sale over at Parents and Friends of Ex-Straights and Straights. It's a parody site of P-FOX and I'm happy to see someone did it.


And yes, Gregg! I'll get to that meme soon! I promise! Really! I swear!

Getting Catty.

Yes, I'm still here. Just wanted to post something so people don't think I fell off the planet and to get LaSpecter off the first thing people see when they head over here and scare them away.

Anyway, this is Britney:

She wanted me to tell you of this site (or else she'd scratch my eyes out and poo in my bed): My Cat Hates You.

Anniversary Post

Well, I made it. It was one year ago today that I posted my first post on this poor excuse of a journal. (It was nothing more than a "Testing...testing...1...2...3 Hey? Is this thing on?" kinda post but it was the first post, nonetheless) And here I am, 1 year and over 15,000 visitors later. Whoda Thunkit?

I have picked up a few more tricks on how to do coding and still get constantly reminded to spell-check. But heck! It's been a fun ride. I'll be around for a while.


Before I forget once again - a belated happy birthday to Walt!!

Back on Nov. 20th, I posted a pic I entitled "Batman: The Wrong Side of the Tracks Years".

Well, here's another one I found over on Davezilla's site I figured could be titled "Batman: The Studio 54 Years":

Good News; Dumb Bird

First off - Some encouraging poll news. This article titled "Voters dissatisfied with Bush, Congress: NBC/WSJ poll reveals 'angry electorate'" says that their approval rating is at 33%, down 6 points since April and 8 since January, and that Americans seems upset with Congress' battles over judges, Terry Schiavo, and Social Security. I'm glad that there still seems to be some brain function left out there. Let's hope this disatisfaction gets stronger as an election gets closer.


As for the dumb bird, there's nothing like be awoken twice in "da wee hours of da dawn" by some bizarre noise at your bathroom window, giving you the frightening thought that someone is trying to break in, only to find a mourning dove trying to have a knock-down, drag-out pecking fight with its own reflection in the glass.

Dunno which is worse, that or the friggin' woodpeckers who decide to practice their hammering on my chimney caps at around the same time.

I Am Drugs

These "ads" are pretty fuckin' funny; the one with the woman (above) is my fave.

Tatoo'ed Hotness

To offset the Christian post before this, I present this Bollywood Cowboy:

It's part of the ad campaign for Toronto's 19th Annual Fashion Cares, a major AIDS fundraising event that'll be held on Saturday June 4th.

Oh, Lawdy!

This looks SO much like something found over on The Heavenly Miz Betty Bowers' site but it ain't! It's real and can be found at TYJApparel, LLC.


And this tacky representation

...can be found here at Heavenly Images where you can have Jesus pose with whomever for a pic! Dunno if it comes in wallet size. Check out the pic of a Godzilla-sized Jesus head crying over the World Trade Center on their site (the 9/11 link).


Ugh...I hate colds. I feel a bit better today but still going through Kleenex like a fish through water. I gather in another day or two and my sinuses will stop feeling like they've been filled with cement. I also lost a some sense of taste and smell. ::sigh:: Alas, due to still being a sicklet, I missed the chance to meet up with Pony and he's pro'lly pissed off at me since I realized that both times he's been down here the past few months, I've been laid up with a cold. He's pro'lly sitting at his Portland home right now thinking nasty thoughts about me. One day, I'll get the chance to actually meet him.

Another Sign

Dunno where this sign is located but someone should inform the cows in that area that they are NOT lemmings


Anyway, the street resurfacing was completed yesterday mid-afternoon and the lines in the two parking areas done this morning. Right on schedule! Gotta hand it to them.

Unfortunately, it looks like I got some sort of a cold. My poor nose is running like crazy and I'm sneezing right and left. I thought at first it was just allergies but nope, not with the way I feel today. I just hope it passes by Monday since I might get the chance to meet up with Pony who is in town for his sister's graduation from the Ooh of Ahh.


I did some checking around last night on the 1920 population census that ancestry.com has and it was a hoot to find some of my relatives there. It was a challenge at first since the names were misspelled by the census taker. (They went door-to-door at the time and wrote everything down by hand and I gather a sizable amount of the names were written down phonetically since I doubt no form of identification was had or asked for) My paternal grandmother's first name was spelled "Mali" as was my cousin/her niece but the name was actually "Molly". My mother's sister was down as "Carrie" when her name was actually "Carolyn" and my maternal grandfather's name was put down as "Herman" when it was actually "Hyman" (Shut it!)

My next challenge is to find my paternal grandfather somewhere on 14th St. since I gather he was still living at home with his mother and most of his 10 siblings. I tried a name search but to no avail.

Happy Friday the 13!

Cheezus! What did you bloggers DO? ::g::

Wall Collapses Onto a Busy Road on the West Side, New York City


Well, I'm going to be confined to Casa de Clutter until at least noon on Saturday. The street I live on (a two block long cul-de-sac with only one entrance/exit) is going to be completely repaved from one side to the other so no vehicles can get on or off of it till Saturday afternoon.

It's a privately owned street so we the condo owners have got to maintain it and tomorrow is the big day for repaving. Luckily, it only happens every several years.

I've done all my errands, did food shopping and am planning just to make nice with either my bed, the tv, or the computer for the duration. I just hope that the place doesn't land up reaking of tar and/or whatever else they use.

One More Jab at His Holy Sauciness

Meme Me in the Morning Then Just Walk Away

Okay, before Spiker sends out Grace Jones in stiletto heels and full leather regalia to beat the shit outta me for not doing this yet, here I go:

The Official Rules of the Caesar's Bath Meme

Said meme takes its name from Mel Brooks' A History of the World (Part I), and, upon receiving it, one is supposed to list five things that one's circle of friends or peer group is wild about, but that one can’t really understand the fuss over. Quoth Caesar, "Nice. Nice. Not thrilling . . . but nice."

1. Reality Shows - I tried to watch and even had a blogging friend who had a friend who did one of the Survivor shows (Lex Van Den Berghe of Survivor Africa) but I never had any interest in continue to watch any of the reality shows.

2. American Idol - Dunno if this constitutes a reality show or not but no interest in it either.

3. Scissor Sisters - I haven't listened to them much but so far, I'm not grabbed. Don't hate them, tho.

4. Low-anything diets - I'm with Spiker on this: "If it was meant for your body to do without certain things of nutritional value, then we would've all grown up on sticks, rocks, and grass. Nothing more than a ploy for people to make money. Pass over all the carbs and fats you don't want. I'll gladly digest them."

5. Booze - I've nothing against it personally but I just never got a hankering for it. I realized many years ago that I never liked the taste of the alcohol itself nor do I like how it makes me feel. Also, I already know and can make a complete fool outta myself sober, I don't need booze to help me in that regards. Besides,if I want to get buzzed on something, I'd rather get stoned which, alas, I should avoid since my lungs are too fucked to deal with smoke. (asthma, ya understand. ::wheeze::cough::hack::)

As for who to pass this onto, dunno! So many people have been memed already!

Gotta Love Those Wacky Canadians!

Better Late Than Never!

Stole this pic from Scott W. aka Sippiambrose (which always reminds me of a great but, alas, not well known old Blues singer Sippie Wallace). It was too funny not to. Anyway...


Spoke to mine earlier this evening and had a wonderful time reminising about several family stories and events. I'm glad she seems to be doing well.

A Bloggy Revolutionary Article

This gent here (whose pic made it to the article):

posted a link to this New York Times article titled "A Blog Revolution? Get a Grip" that interviews Nick Denton of Gawker Media. That's Nick in the foreground along with Joel Johnson of Gizmodo; Gina Trapani, Lifehacker; Jessica Coen, Gawker; and Lockhart Steele.

Thought y'all might be interested.

Just wanted to get that in before the stroke of midnight!

Happy Cinco de Mayo.


Heard about this movie from my friend Gregg in Austin who is lucky enough to have gotten a hold of tickets for the preview. Here is the trailer for it. It requires you to have the itunes software, tho.

The flick is by Joss Whedon (who brought you "Buffy" and "Angel") and it's the movie version of his show "Firefly". The imdb entry for it is here.


This weekend is also the "Muppets On Crack Do NYC". As much as I'd like to be there and be able to meet all them as well seeing other people and see NYC after so many years, alas, it wasn't meant to be. Hopefully next year.

A Toast to the Runaway Bride and Pluck Me!

Ya know this had to make it to Ebay one of these days!

There's other Jennifer Wilbanks auctions on there right now like a Wilbank bobblehead, a pair of Runaway Bride running shoes, and a Jennifer Wilbanks Runaway Bride Wedding Kit.

Amazing what shlock people throw together and sell these days after a piece of news. Gotta love it!
