Random Musings

Well, the ongoing Wake-Up-With-A-Song-My-Head-Every-Morning saga is....still....ongoing. For over a week and a half now, it's been "How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria", though not the entire song, just the lines, "I'd like to say a word on her behalf. What is it, Sister? Maria, makes me Laugh." Seriously, I drove Carlos crazy because I would just spout that for no reason.
Then, the song morphed into " When You're Good To Mama" from Chicago, and I found myself saying, to just about anyone, "So boost me up that ladder, kid, and I'll boost you up yours." I cannot tell you how many heads at work turned when I uttered that little gem.
Finally, after a couple of days of, well, boosting Maria up hers, my brain finally settled on Pink's Perfect. "Pretty, pretty please, don't you ever, ever feel, like you're less than, less than perfect."
I've nearly gone nuts thinking how these three wound up on that loop in my head!

The three frontrunners for the GOP nomination for president are Herman Cain, Mitt Romney and... and... and... ...

I love a coming out story, especially one that just happens.
California assemblywoman Cathleen Galgiani was giving an interview to The Record of Stockton and, during that chat, she came out as a lesbian, saying she hoped her admission would send a positive message to LGBT youth, especially those struggling to come to terms with their sexual identity. 
Her announcement brings the number of openly gay California lawmakers to eight. Her addition would make the Legislature's LGBT Caucus, formed in 2002, the country's largest caucus recognizing openly gay legislators in the country.
Welcome out, Cathleen. Homo HQ will be rushing to you your copy of The Gay Agenda and your Lowes gift card.
Welcome out. [source]

Josh Dallas
The new thing this year on TV is the updated, twisted on it's side, make it dark, make it sexy, fairytale show. 
The kind folks at ABC are giving us 'Once Upon A Time', which re-imagines what might have happened had an evil queen--no....not Elton--sent all the fairytale characters to live with amnesia in a small town in Maine.
Then NBC offered us the far darker, 'Grimm,' sort of a police procedural--a Law & Order: Magical Forest, if you will--about fairytale characters come to life, and how they might fare in today's world with a hot cop on their trail.
David Giuntoli 
Now, while I enjoy them both, 'Grimm' I like better, because it's a bit darker, and less, well, fairytale-ish. But, both shows have some shiny new man-candy going on, which makes tuning in all the moire interesting.
'Once' has Josh Dallas, as Prince Charming, and, I must say, he knows how to fill out a pair of leather riding pants; that's alweays a high scorer on my list. FYI. And 'Grim' has the dark and sexy cop on the trail of nasty fairytale creatures, in one David Giuntoli. He makes me wanna go all Three Little Pigs on him. TMI.
Prince Charming and a Grimm.
I'm in.

How surprising is it that people are rioting in the streets over the firing of a football coach, but when they heard about the child rapist, and those who covered his ass, they just went tailgating instead?

I kind of love all these so-called "religiously affiliated" groups that hate on The Gays. They all use the word "family" in their name, like The Gays don't come from families, or aren't families, or can't make a family. Okay, I don't love 'em, so much as I laugh at 'em.
Case in point: the "Family" Research Council ["F"RC] who awarded Illinois Republican congressman, Joe Walsh, a 100 percent rating as a “True Blue” member of Congress because of his “unwavering support of the family”. This "family" group just loves Joe Walsh.
But, um, Joe may not love family so much; or at least his own family. Joe Walsh owes $117,000 in unpaid child support to his ex-wife. In fact, Walsh, who earns quite the hefty salary, actually refuses to pay his ex-wife to support his children. 
And yet, according to "F"RC wingnut-in-charge Tony Perkins: “We thank Cong. Walsh who has voted consistently to defend faith, family and freedom. Cong. Walsh and other ‘True Blue Members’ have voted to repeal Obamacare, de-fund Planned Parenthood, end government funding for abortion within the health care law, uphold the Defense of Marriage Act, and continue support for school choice. I applaud their commitment to uphold the institutions of marriage and family.”
Just not their own. Apparently. [source].
For someone who denied being gay for quite a while, Ricky Martin is all the way out now.
It seems that Ricky has become a Spanish citizen so that he can now legally marry his boyfriend, Carlos Gonzalez Abella.
It seems Ricky received a “letter of naturalization” from Spain’s government, which allows him to skip many of the steps typically required for citizenship.
The only question now, it seems, is when is the big day.
This story warms the cold depths of my snark-filled heart because it's just further proof that living in the closet is such a dark place, and coming pout, and living openly makes life so much sweeter.
Congrats to Ricky and his Carlos from me and mine. [source].

Whoa! I guess the memo telling us of big hair must have gotten lost in the mail! Stupid snail mail.

Those fellas are hott! ...loading those tv shows into my dvr.....

Yay for Ricky!

As for your songs stuck in the brain? My cure is to play something catchy, but without a lot of "hooks" in it. You could try something in a diff language. I had Korn's "Dead Bodies" stuck in my head for a month which for others was rather unpleasant as I would randomly sing out, "dead bodies everywhere!"
