Random Musings

Carlos called to tell me he was moving a refrigerator at work and bemoaned the fact he was being treated like a hired hand.
i told him i would call his boss and ask her to change his name to Manuel Labor.
Get it? Manual Labor ... Manuel Labor?
Okay ... I'll stop.
For some reason ... I'll blame wine ... I DVR'd a Cameron Diaz movie, Sex Tape, the other day. And last Sunday afternoon, while it rained outside, I decided to watch it.
Five minutes in I couldn't stop thinking how much I dislike Cameron Diaz and how much she looks like Jack Nicholson's Joker with the make-up.
Then I clicked 'Erase' on the DVR and turned over to an SVU marathon.
According to anti-gay Pastor Rick Scarborough, members of Congress are "lining up" to sign a pledge saying they'll defy a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in favor of nationwide marriage equality:
“We’re taking a very adamant stand. If the court declares same-sex ‘marriage’ to be on the same par as a civil right, that’s a bridge too far. We won’t obey. We’ll go to jail.” 
Good, with many of the more conservative members of Congress doing jail time, maybe we'll actually see our government get something done.
Can someone please ask Kathy Griffin to stop the Why I Left Fashion Police Tour? I cared for about a nano-second and then I was over it but she's acting like it's Carson leaving the Tonight Show.
i love you Kathy, but take a seat already.
Glee finally came to an end last Friday night ... at least two years too late, if you ask me.
Ted Cruz shut down the government—costing taxpayers $24 billion—because he wanted to repeal Obamacare.
Ted Cruz said, in his speech announcing his soon-to-fail presidential bid, that he would dismantle Obamacare word by word.
Ted Cruz’ wife has quit her job to help with his campaign, and now has no healthcare so …
Ted Cruz added his wife to his policy … his Obamacare policy.
Hypocrite say what?
Y’all know I’m a huge fan of Justified because … Timothy Olyphant. But the other night I finally took a good look at Mike, played by Jonathan Kowalsky.
Yum. That is all.
Matt McLaughlin, California wacknut bigot and homophobe lawyer, proposed new legislation for the state: the "Sodomite Suppression Act." And since there are no legal remedies to stop the insanity of having this bill placed on the ballot, it looks like it may go forward.
Enter activist Charlotte Laws, who has filed to have her own piece of legislation considered: the “Intolerant Jackass Act,” AKA the exact opposite of McLaughlin’s proposal.
Would that I could vote in California ...
Can I please ask that anyone, anyone, who uses the phrase, "It is what it is," as an excuse to please stop it?

Right now.

2 Years to late is right!

I could have stopped watching after the Madonna episode. That was its peak for me.

How can Cruz pose as a man of integrity when he has even less than Julius Caesar?

I had so much to say, but your Twitter finale has left me laughing!

I can't wait to meet you and Carlos some day!

Manuel Labor . . . .I knew a Manual Lopez once. A very cute Cuban refuge in the Sixties. I've always wondered what happened to him. Oh, wait a minute! I get it now.
