Random Musings

Next Monday I am flying out to Oregon for ten days while my father has knee replacement surgery — his new knew was crafted in Belgium and has just arrived in the good old US of A — and recovers.

I will be away from ISBL for that time, but I do have some planned posts; I may be around, but then again, with Dad and his dog and things to take care of, I probably won’t, so, please, y’all play nice.

Oh, and since I won’t get home until the 11th of November, I need to say two more things:

Number 1: VOTE,

And that's exactly what i did this morning before work ... voted to elect our first female President of the United States!
In case anyone ever doubted that Sean Hannity is a fucking asshole, here’s a little something he said recently:
“I have an offer for the president. I will charter a plane for you and your family. I will make sure it’s as big a plane as Air Force One, what you have grown accustomed to, in other words. Taxpayer-funded plane.”
And we’ll stop, because apparently Hannity is pissed that the Obama’s fly on the taxpayer funded Air Force as ALL presidents do because they’re a Black family?
“I don’t know where I’m going to get it. Maybe I’ll ask Trump if I can charter his plane for Obama. I will charter Donald Trump’s plane if he’ll let me, and I will charter it to the country of your choice.”
And we'll stop again; a Trump plane? Make sure it hasn’t gone belly-up first.
“You want to go to Canada? I’ll pay for you to go to Canada. You want to go to Kenya? I’ll pay for you to go to Kenya. Jakarta, where you went to school back in the day, you can go back there.”
Again with the stopping; racist ignorant fuck. Racist.Ignorant.Fuck.
“Anywhere you want to go. I’ll put the finest food, caviar, champagne, you name it. I have one stipulation, you can’t come back.
Hey Sean, if you’re so disgusted by the Obama’s why don’t you charter a Trump plane and fly it to Hell and never come back.

Mariah Carey in her Halloween outfit … or what she’ll wear to work when her singing career ends and she becomes a stripper at The Pole off Route One.
Jessica Simpson, not in a Halloween costume, but in street wear that makes her look like the biggest idiot who ever walked the earth.
Bill Cornwell and Tom Doyle lived together in a brownstone that Bill Cornwell owned in the West Village for over five decades. Their enduring love never seemed to them to need codification — not to mention that for most of their relationship, same-sex marriage was illegal.

Bill Cornwell died two years ago at age 88 and in his will he bequeathed the small apartment building to Tom Doyle, above, but Bill’s nieces and nephews, The Greedy Heartless Fucks, are disputing the will.

See, when Bill Cornwell crafted the will about ten years ago, he wanted all his possessions, including the three-story, four-unit building, to go to his Tom Doyle But a mistake was made when just one person witnessed the signing of the will — New York requires two witnesses — and so that simple error allowed The Greedy Heartless Fucks to swoop in and claim the building as their inheritance — ignoring their uncle’s wishes — and put the building up for sale; it is now under contract.
Now Tom Doyle, who is 85, has no place to live and has to leave the home he has lived in for half a century.
“I’m not so concerned about the money, I’m more concerned about a roof over my head for the rest of my life, and I wouldn’t have to be in a nursing home. As long as I am here, I have all the familiar surroundings. It’s almost as if Bill is still here.” — Tom Doyle
The dispute has now shifted to court.

Carole DeMaio, one of the nieces, one of The Greedy Heartless Fucks, said her uncle never took the necessary steps to make sure everything went to Tom Doyle, including not marrying him, because he did not want to.
“He had 50 years to put Tom’s name on any of these papers. The will was never a valid will.”
And this bitch now says the two men were just “friends” or “great companions” who shared a one bedroom apartment for fifty-five years!

There is one niece, Shelia McNichols, not one of The Greedy Heartless Fucks, who had attempted to abide by her uncle’s wishes and assigned her piece of the inheritance to Tom Doyle, but the rest of Mr. Cornwell’s relatives chose not to go along because the building is worth $7 million dollars and that’s more than they cared about their uncle and his lifelong partner.

The Greedy Heartless Fucks.
Hot Men …

Yes, he’s been here before but I cannot get over how adorkable Cory Michael Smith is as Edward Nygma, AKA The Riddler, on Gotham. I just love a dork … ask Carlos.

Also, Andre Holland, of American Horror Story, My Roanoke Nightmare, who plays the real Matt — while Cuba Gooding Jr. plays the re-enactor documentary Matt. He was also in The Knick and Selma and is just delicious.

Just sayin’.
Sidenote: how great has American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare and American Horror Story: Return to Roanoke, Three Days In Hell been this season.

Seriosuly; last night I jumped, shrieked a little, and held my hands over my eyes.

Loving it!
Serial Adulterer Newt Gingrich appeared on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News show and went a little unhinged when Kelly wanted to talk Donald J. Groper. He accused Kelly of being obsessed with sex — says the man who tried to unseat a president for having an affair while he, himself was having an affair on his ill wife — and Gingrich came a little unhinged asking Kelly to say the words, “Bill Clinton is a sexual predator,” over and over again.

Kelly said, instead, “We’ll leave you to deal with your anger issues.”

Score Kelly!

First off, safe travels and hope all goes well. Second, I too have already voted by absentee ballots as I'll be away as well. Third, AHS as yet,again, been incredible and creative. I am also glad Gaga wasn't featured to heavily. I'm still not sure about her acting. And ready to jump in bed with Gordon and Riddler together. I'm a good multi Tasker dear.

good luck to your dad; but we can't even make KNEES in the USA...WTF????? let us know how he's doing, K?

hannity is a deplorable tool. so's mooriah and jessica. and the greedy heartless fucks. and the newt. and joe walsh.

You'd have thought that if the building was worth $7 million the GHFs could give a portion of that to their uncle's friend and lover for the rest of his life; they don't even have to alienate their rights in the property; it's not as if at 85 Tom Doyle has many decades ahead of him

Will keep fingers crossed for your dad's op; may it go as well as mine did - 100% recovery!

Safe travels, good luck to dad.

Raybeard said...

Yes, I echo the positive wishes above to your Dad.
You take care yourself and we'll keep our fingers crossed that the intelligent side - or even just the reasonable side - prevails on the 8th.

Buen viaje. Hope the surgery goes well and your newly Belgian and Bionic father recovers quickly.
