Another Gay Movie

Once in a while I like to watch a quirky silly stupid movie.
I giggled all the way threw - ummm, with an occasional *eewwww*
I watched this as I recovered from my 2nd Thanksgiving.

The BOBs



The BOBs, the world’s largest international awards for Weblogs, podcasts and videoblogs that began four years ago. The winners of each year’s awards are decided by both an international jury of bloggers and online voting. More than 8,500 candidates were suggested in 16 categories for the 2008 Best of the Blogs. The Winners Have Been Decided. Over 100,000 votes were cast during the BOBs, and you can see all the winners.

I bring this up because Captain Obvious was awarded a Kreativ Blogger award.

I got curious and started back tracking who gave it to him (Nuestra Vida Dulce), then who gave it to her (Life is Beautiful), then who gave it to her (Good Food, Good Friends, Good Life), then I started to think "for pete's sake, how far back must this go?" and then I started to think of the Pert commercial and figured I needed to cut to the chase. I googled "Kreativ Blogger Award" and ran across The BOBs. For which I will just assume sired this mania. It's so easy to groan about our lives inside our individual blogs. What a simple and fascinating tool to say "Hey, you're pretty neato!"

Michael/"Captain Obvious" tagged me to do the Meme behind the Kreativ Blogger to list out 6 things I am grateful for. It's extended by an additional Meme of listing out 6 additional bloggers that I think are neato. He also asks that I do a book Meme that I'll explain later. And yet again he extends the Meme out to include, what amounts to posting a photo of myself using rules. Okay, Michael here you go, for which I think you should post a pic on your blog of your left nipple.

I am grateful for:

1. My Solomon/Solomonster/Silly/booger/baby: An almost 13 year old male German Shepard that has truly been at my side through many fun times and desperate down times. He is one of the smartest beings I have ever known and certainly the most stubborn.
2. My Wayne: Who would have thunk that a blind date could lead to one of the best platonic relationships I have ever experienced. Love ya buddy.
3. My Self-motivated unemployment: I threw caution to the wind a while back and quite a fun job (bad bosses) to job hunt for more security. 3 months of uncertainty later the job I truly value was mine.
4. Positive Mental Attitude: I follow a non-denominational unorthodox Christian belief that for me guides me to make the inappropriate uncalculated irrational and oddly "works for me" impromptu decisions that blurr my path in life. I fall and I get back up. I succeed and I take people with me.
5. My Family: Each member challenges me to embrace the impact they have had on my life. And they humble me to reflect on my impact on them.
6. Wakeful mornings: I'm always happy to wake up each morning. Otherwise...

6 Blogs of note: *mind you it's my universe*

1. Jadielady: Knitter Maniac, kitty momma, and work guru
2. Kelly Stern: 'Cause he's cute and a bit over-exposed
3. Breen Lantern: Mostly because he's a Green Lantern fan, and from my original neck of the woods in NY. But also because he exposes all his failings to the raw nerve and still gets up and brushes himself off each morning.
4. BobMitchellinThe21stCentury: I enjoy his "Slap Sue Storm" posts and myriad of other comic drama.
5. SF Signal: Tons of kool Science Fiction stuff that keeps me in the "know".
6. Earth2Karen: There's something about her blog that keeps me grounded.
6+. Indigo Orion, Sports Nut in Dallas, That's So Gay, and IdiotBoy: Cause she's a super momma, he's just adorable, because I steal from his blog quite often, and because he's simply really nice.

The Book Meme: Open the closest book to you – not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book literally closest to you at this very moment – to page 56. Write the fifth sentence, as well as two to five sentences following that. WOW, not a bookworm, I had to hunt for a book that was "near" me...

At that happens to be the Kia Motors 2002 Warranty and Consumer Information Manual. I just know you are all thrilled beyond measures.
Page 56: Wouldn't you know it's blank, referencing nothing for the State of Colorado's Consumer Notice. I guess that state is not important enough for a consumer notice. Well that was fun.

The Photo of myself: Rules - Go to your sixth picture folder and pick your sixth picture, remember the details and share. Okay I don't have a sixth picture "folder" so I'll have to share just my sixth picture.


This was last Christmas 2007. Wayne's mother gave me a pocket comforter. It's a comforter that folds up into a pillow. And just for her/now you, I got a bit silly with the pocket portion and decided to wear it for her/now you.

Now - I am to Tag 6 other people to do the same. Get to work: Jadielady, Kelly Stern, Karen, Idiotboy, Joey, Sean, Bob (he won't do it), JJ, Cawfeeguy.

Tina Turner

The Tina Turner concert was a Birthday/Christmas/Birthday present to my buddy Wayne. When I purchased the tickets, it turned out to also be a "Congratulations you've been let go from your job of 21 years" present. Well we finally cashed in and left for the concert on Sunday at 2:30 pm. We stopped for a late lunch, early dinner in Fredericksburg at the Cracker Barrel. My first time at that restaurant and it was pretty good and all the better with a cute waiter named Andrew. A certain person's anxiety aside, we made it to DC by 6:00 pm for the 7:00 pm concert and we were not in a rush.

Neither of us had been to the Verizon Center. It was larger and steeper than I had anticipated. We were somewhat in nosebleed seats, but well within view of the stage so that Tina looked like Tina and not an ant. The stage was blocked with whore-red curtains that remained closed. And they remained closed until nearly 7:30 pm. I detest people that arrive late. I'm not talking about Tina, I'm talking about nearly 1/2 of the audience. At 7:00 pm, the Center was about 1/2 empty (yes 1/2 not full). We were however sitting in the gayest of all sections. Not entirely sure how that happened, but there was a plethora of eye candy to entertain us as we waited and waited. We were also entertained by AMWAY commercials on the big screens. I was ever so happy to pay for a concert to watch commercials for AMWAY!! But I figure they "sponsored/paid for" the concert, they can infringe on my entertainment.

When the concert did begin, a few late-comers arrived to our section just in time to block our view of the grand entrance. Thankfully, the noise was so deafening that I'm sure they didn't hear me yell "sit the fuck down already!" as they leisurely stood to take their draping trench coats off.

Tina did put on quite a show, but you can tell she's not as spry as she used to be. Her usual fancy footwork was just a fancy box step and wiggle. Not much of the major moves. That was left to the other girls on the stage that was meant to make her look her funkiest, and it did. But the critical eye saw threw the facade. But she can definitely still work in heels while wobbling her knees.

The concert had entertainment between songs that varied on the theme of the upcoming song while she did a wardrobe change. The first one was a bit confusing as it looked like some punk had jumped the stage and was causing a fight with the security guards. But you soon realized that it was staged. She came out in a flowing blood red outfit to sing the Rock Opera Tommy song where she played a druggie whore. She looked fantastic. You could tell they added boobie makeup to give them a punch, which was really not that necessary. But, SHAZAM - there they are.

There was a 30 minute intermission, which was really well timed cause I think everyone's bladder's needed attention. EVERYONE, even the late-comers. During the intermission we were entertained with more AMWAY commercials, no joke.

When she came back, she was sitting down along a line of other musicians and the back up vocalists. They sang three slow blues songs, one where the saxophone had a solo and Tina chimed in to compete with the sax in her sultry husky "I can drown that sax out voice!"

Then she ran off and a skit started that was obviously Thunderdome inspired. Voila! Out she comes in full Thunderdome gear! That entrance was far out.

At one point she sang "What's love got to do with it" and she got the audience involved. She had the women sing that verse first and then challenged the men. One queen behind us said "I'm just not that butch!" But we all chanted and it was a good time. Proud Mary was her last song and it went on for about 20 minutes.

Of course she did an encore and that was the "Back to Pride Rock" song from The Lion King (I am humbly corrected by the Anonymous commentor that the encore song was Nutbush City Limits and he/she is correct, but now I can't recall when she sang Pride Rock - and I know she sang that unless I went into Tina-land and sang it to myself). I had anticipated but was not sure when she would sing that song. As she sang, she ran over to one side of the stage and got into a small cage. The cage started to lift and the stage floor was lifting as well. This was when she was in the Cherry Picker and went out INTO the audience and got different areas into the song singing PRIDE ROCK! That was very cool. Though it might have been even more cool had the cherry picker lifted her up higher into the audience. But with her hanging over the edge like she does, it's probably best not the have her getting to high without being chained in. The woman has guts though. At one time she ran off of the Cherry Picker and onto its platform and danced a bit. All in heels.

I think, had everyone demanded a second encore, she would have sang more. But being Sunday night everyone started getting up to leave. Heck the lights were still dim, which told me that she would have done more. But we left and got back to the smoking parking deck. Cause that's what we did while we waited an hour to be able to think of leaving.

Getting out of DC was a whole lot easier than getting in. Sort of tells you something, doesn't it??? Made me chuckle. Thanks for coming and giving us your money, here's the easiet way out. We stopped at IHOP and had a late dinner and got their monster Colorado Omelets. Man, you need to try those but take your lipitor beforehand. Wayne got me back home at 2:30 am. I was dawg tired but still stayed up a bit to get some lovin time in with the Solomonster. He was very good without me for so long. Then I fell asleep, thankful that I did not have to work on Monday. I was a lazy cuss today.

Thank you Tina!

My Bad

Have you ever burped and farted at the same time. It's sort of funny and embarrassing when that happens. You may also feel guilty and horrified. Well in a week where I am trying to get folks to share some fun and happiness; I fell flat on my face and got up with two black eyes. All before 8:30am this morning. I'm a bad friend.

I sent an email that I rather liked to a bunch of friends. I didn't take into consideration whether or not they might like or dislike the email. One friend, and possibly more - I don't know; took offense to the message of the email (burped). To add insult to injury, I sent an email to apologize because I truly had not meant to offend this person, but I did and I should have known better because I know how this person feels about the topic of the email. But I missed the connection. Not just with this person but with the message of the email. My apology was shallow as I attempted a brief explanation of my interpretation of the email. I believe I added salt to the wound, and well... that's when I... (farted). My interpretation aside: while I realized by gaff, I reared by hind-end at the same time to show my insensitive and socio-centric vantage point that truly denied him of his valid belief system in this diverse world.

Sean, I very much apologize for offending you. I understand that you know I meant no malice and I do appreciate YOU. I'm sorry and I will strive to be more thoughtful. Feel free to keep me in check!

And now I humbly offer the most awesome SMILE of the day. I received a Direct email from the President of the company I work for, today. I have been hand-holding *to the extreme* a very needy (even he agrees) customer that is stressing over the economy. Truth be known, I have probably spent 40 hours on the telephone with him since the beginning of October. He called the President because I had put a smile on his face. Well shucks, his calling the President which lead to a major kudo for me - put a pretty big SMILE on my face, today. You're welcome Mr. J, and thank you too.

Smiles - Day 2

Bring on the smiles, Folks!! Just talking to Jadielady she has you all beat. But she needs to share all her Smiles on the blog. Today, while I don't right know that I made the person smile, I'm fairly certain that I did. There's a particular product that I am just dumb as rocks about. I had to call this person's "help" area and she answered. She was more that attentive. She solved my problem for me and got me money for my complaining whiny people. AND she was able to fully explain to me all the issues that impacted the situation to the point that I understood. So kudo's to her. I sent her manager an email of awesomeness and included her in on the email. Her manager wrote back and recognized her stellar performance. I think that put a smile on her face. And for once, I recognized someone other than Jadielady. But she's beyond awesome and she knows that's how I feel.

So get out there and make people smile for "significant" reasons.
Come back here and share your impact on people in your life.
*This post in honor of Thomas, Mr. Grumpy Pants.*

Smiles

I'm needing some motivation, so here's the challenge!
*
Report back to me on Thursday of this week.
Your mission is make 5 - just 5 - people smile.
Not a simple smile. A meaningful smile.
There's got to be substance behind the smile.

Why 5? Because one a day, would be too easy!
Consider yourself tagged - Get to work.

Home

Melissa and I went to a house-warming party last night. We were fashionably late and left just before the end time, so not to be stragglers. The home was a newly built house in a cul-de-sac in Glen Allen, VA. Very nice neighborhood for our friends to live in. All the homes have a different appearance yet blend well. We walked in and were so impressed with the open layout. There was no claustrophobic feeling, even with so many folks already mingling. Well they weren't so much mingling as bunched up in their personal comfort zones. We were told not to bring a gift, but we did anyhow. You just don't go to a house-warming party and not bring a giftie. We brought two reasonably priced complimenting bottles of Chilean wine. I figured them for white wine drinkers. They were serving red wines at the party that are on the deep chewy heavy side. That surprised me, so I was glad that I went with a white and a red. Their home was nicely but not obnoxiously over modern. I was rather into the kitchen, probably because mine needs a major overhaul. All the rooms were modestly decorated with very tasteful accents. What I really liked was the spacing of the guest rooms. None were right beside the other and had there own baths. I'm not a real fan of the cathedral ceiling, which this house does have. I just can't imagine myself worrying about the cobwebs that are 20 feet up or more. OH, and the yard was a lush green and big enough for dogs to really run around. Some things are simply more important.
*
When I got home I looked around and thought "oh boy, this place has a long way to go to get to being nice and presentable." But it will happen later than sooner.
*
Congratulations on your new home Victoria and Roy, you deserve it.

Rubbers

I woke up to the news this morning and they said it was going to rain for the next few days. My first groggy thought was we all need to put our rubbers on. Well that woke me up. I hadn't thought of wearing rubber footwear on my shoes since I was a kid. But there it was. *Get your head out of the gutter Michael* Then my day proceeded according to plan:

I listened to Q94's war of the roses on my way to work and heard a man "mooo" at his newly ex-wife.
An 8am call I needed to make never happened as I promised because I was quickly side-tracked into a meeting as I walked in the door to work.
One very important letter went out this morning that should have left yesterday.
Another VERY important letter that should have mailed today will not mail until tomorrow.
I hate having to wait on others.
A work colleague/friend did not come in today. She was sadly sending her beloved German Shepard off to Angel School. Make us proud Rusha!!
The rest of the afternoon I focused on the plentiful easy stuff. My mind did not want to think about the difficult items any longer. So, I delved into the world of "git r dun" and that helped to bring down my work-item count a good bit.
I left work early (yes, still after 5pm) and went off to have dinner with Indigo-Orion and her little cream puff of a darlin' named MM. I had fish, Indigo had chicken and MM had the Dog d'haught with Mac d'chez.
Then I went and purchased two bottles of Chilean wine for a house-warming party this weekend. I am going with one of my work-wives, Melissa.
Then I came home to the Solomonster and he begged to go out cause he had to do his business. Then he came in and begged for treats. Then begged for more. Then MORE. Since I knew this was the game plan, I started out stingy. Being smarter than me, he knew what I was up to.
Now it's time to sleep and I'm not tired.

Chocolate

Sometimes I tickle myself and often it's for all the wrong reasons. Chocolate - it comes in so many delightful presentations. For some it's a simple candy bar and others are not sated until they have double chocolate with fudge topping. I have a friend that prefers the later. If I do have chocolate I prefer the candy bar (again, don't tell my doctor). I'm actually not a chocolate fan like many people. But I do appreciate the visual display of chocolate. Maybe it's just the earthy brown color. It gives off a rich warm glow. I noticed a sweater on a colleague today that was a dark golden brown and he had on thick brown corduroy pants. It was really nice outfit and the two garments complimented each other nicely. To which I said (and this is where I should have bit my tongue) "You look all chocolaty today!" *and I think I said it a bit flamboyantly*.
It might not have been such a slip of the tongue had the person's pigmentation not been a rich dark chocolate color as well. I turned away not thinking anything of it, then it hit me. WTF!?? And I looked back at him and he just grinned. And I awkwardly walked off into the beginning of my day.

Scatterbrain

POWERS/ABILITIES: Telepathy, limited to reading other peoples' thoughts. On occasion, he's demonstrated the ability to erase peoples' memories and to fire a bolt of psionic energy that incapacitates the recipient, but these newer abilities have a draining effect on Scatterbrain.
*
I could use a bit of that right now.
*
I would consider erasing the minds of some of the people calling me at work about how nervous they are about the economy. I would mind-blast a few folks I work with that should be smart enough to remain calm. I would definitely read the minds of our leaders to know what they knew and why they make the decisions they do. Or better yet, try to understand better why they don't act faster.
*
I would reach into people's minds to see what really makes them tick. I would be tempted to abuse the negative information to my advantage, but I would focus on the positive. I would work the positive motivators into conversations. I would try to guide folks to their happy place and help them understand themselves better. It would be so awesome to bring out the positive in people.
*
WAKE UP!!!
*
Fine, I'd psionic blast the heck out of I-64 drivers. But I'd still find some way of using my power to be a hero.

There Are "0" Gaps in My Knowledge



Where I have gaps in my knowledge:

No Gaps!

Where I don't have gaps in my knowledge:

Philosophy
Religion
Economics
Literature
History
Science
Art

Okay, so if I'm so smart why do I feel so completely dumb lately? I almost got into an accident this morning because I was not paying attention to the other guy. All my files at work are in a disorganized mess. My plan is just not coming together with the work I have to do. I did manage to get one letter written today on a very overdue issue that required more brainpower that I wanted to provide. I didn't want to write the letter mainly because I can't help a person that I really want to be able to help; but my hands are tied. I need to shake off this soft compassionate side that is hindering my objectivity. Whoa Whoa Whoa!!! What did I just say? No, that ain't right. Not right at all. The situation just sucked for a customer and I had no way to fight to a "yes" for her. But I did respond in my educational, helpful and empathetic manner that is important to me. It's just some decisions suck more than others. And some external resources just aren't as helpful as they should be. Then I had dinner with my buddy Wayne and I think I pressed to hard about him finding a job. He accepted it but I could tell that it bothered him. And the prick that I am pushed the point of asking him what color he wanted me to paint his room in my house when it comes time for him to move in. I can be such an ass. But if it comes to it, my home is his; because his home has been mine before. I think my minds just a mess right now. But I did have two gentlemen today thank me for being patient with them. One went so far as to say that I missed my calling as a psychologist. I did actually, only because I knew that I'm more sponge than mirror. I would totally take on people's problems as my own were I to be a counselor. So I take my psychology degree and exercise the soft skills outward into the world to assist people. I focus on the mirror reflecting and I don't absorb. Who am I'm fooling. I so very much absorb.

On another note: Circuit City is a local business that has been fighting to survive. They have products that appeal to all purchase ranges and wallet sizes. I'm fighting myself to tell you to boycott the City because I think they could have done better and because yet again they let several friends go today. But I like the City so much better than Best Buy. Maybe it's the old-school in me. But I say "Save the City".

Shutdown


I had planned on going into work on Saturday to do some major "digging me out of the shit hole" that I am in. I've had a backlog before, but never like this as long as I've been in my role. So Saturday came and Solomonster needed to pee. I let him out, he did his business and came right back in. That was around 6:00am - clockwork for him to just stay on the work schedule. He does it on Sunday's as well. I could barely keep my eyes open. I lied back down for just a few more minutes. I woke up many hours later. I tried to motivate and get online to wake me up. I just putzed around a bit and felt the pillows yammering for my head. I answered the call and fell asleep. I woke up at 6:00pm. I stayed awake until about 9:30pm then felt the sleepmonster calling. I answered. (oh yes, solly got to pee when I was awake) I didn't wake up until 9:00am. Good golly, how can I be this tired. Otherwise I feel fine. I had not drive to even try to go into work today. I must be in the worst work-funk ever. And I love my job. I just don't like being swamped. I loved helping folks with their problems. I just don't like being pressured to help them faster than the speed of light. And with the financial world in an uproar, complainers are complaining faster than ever.

Or, it could also be partly due to my body having some difficulty acclimating to the new insulins I'm on. A nurse friend (not karen) told me that my sugar levels are lower which is a good thing. But my body might be rebelling from not getting that ever present sugar high I have been on. So I'm in Glucose Detoxification! Whodda thunk that?

So I need candy and all will be right in my universe, right? (I know Karen... no candy... there's always a party pooper out there lingering)

But my work week apparently had ALL the time in the world to do just that.

I'm drained and tired.

I'm cranky.

And, I had to put on a happy face for 40+++ hours.

Oh yeah, and my week includes Saturday.

Stunned Silence

Something unusual was in the air at work today... near complete silence. Sure the office was a-buzz with work. But everyone was oddly quiet and more focused on work. (wish I could say the same. but I got to work at 8:10am and I was immediately tagged to speak with one very upset woman) However, the folks I work with tend to be regular news hounds and barkers about events and what-not. I was thinking to myself most of the day... What day is it? What month is it? Did we just have an election of epic proportions? Not ONE person in the office today spoke of the elections. I even tried eavesdropping on some of the folks that were more vocal about being McCain supporters. Not even the lone Obama supporter was heard making a comment, and she's a yakker. It really felt like the twilight zone.

My Gay Vote

A few people have asked me how I'm voting, considering the fact that I'm gay. One is fairly disappointed in my selection or preference toward McCain. I will be voting for McCain. While the gay issue is "important" to me; it is not entirely what I am about. I am a sum of all of my parts. Being gay is only one facet. And I live a pretty decent life. Maybe if I had a partner that I wanted to marry, I might feel differently. But just because it's an issue for you, does not make it a must-have concern for me. Take Gun Control. If the right to bear arms were taken away from me - I would not be happy about it, but I could live a decent life without it. Fully aware that just because I can't bear arms, doesn't mean I won't own one. While I can't legally marry in the State of Virginia - I can still carry my gay-ness with me, fully aware of who I am and what I have inside. I know where I stand with McCain/Palin on this issue. I don't trust Obama/Biden on this issue. Obama has said, "I'm a Christian. And so, although I try not to have my religious beliefs dominate or determine my political views on this issue, I do believe that tradition, and my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman." While he supports civil unions and having the decision of such be made by individual states; I'm not satisfied with that stand. Gay Marriage needs to be a Supreme Court decision of equal rights, making it mandatory for all states to follow. On this issue, among others, he is hiding. I don't care for that in my President. No more than I cared for Clinton waving his finger at me saying "I did not have sex with that woman" or "It depends on what your definition of "is", is". No I will not give my vote to a person that talks pretty, says nothing, and will deliver less, and who knows what else. Nope, can't do it. I will proudly walk with my gay-penis in my pants to the voting polls and vote McCain and say "F**k Yeah!" (and whistle a little tune for Bob).

Other Options

MMGL has an inner-Underdog that would not feel complete unless he made mention of the other Presidential candidates that you have an opportunity to vote for. I have no doubt that most of you that are going to vote - will vote for one of the Democrat or Republican tickets. I rather like the idea that there are other options available. Indigo-Orion is pleased that I may vote for one of the Underdogs. That way it gives 'something' to the Obama team. Have no fear I will vote. But she doesn't care for my argument that our popular votes don't matter. That it's only the voting Electorates that actually vote in the President. I don't think the Electorates are truly "Statespersons" and will simply vote their conscience. While they are supposed to vote the will of the people they represent, I don't see that happening. So I got to thinking, what would happen if the entire Electorate decided to truly "Rock the Vote" and give all their votes to, for instance - Chuck Baldwin or Cynthia McKinney. They have it within their power to do just that. But they'd have a lot of 'splainin to do Lucy.
