Bobservations


Carlos has a serious issue with time, being late almost, almost, always. On the other hand, I was raised to almost, almost, always be early.

The other day, though, I got stuck at work chatting with co-workers and was late picking him up; he was annoyed. And we had a small spat about it, where I apologized—I should have called—but also reminded him that he has no sense of time and he is almost, almost, always late and has no issue with making people wait.

Cut to this morning; we had to leave early because Ozzo had a surgery and a dental cleaning planned and we had to have him at the vet’s office between seven and seven-thirty. We usually have breakfast at 7:30 so I suggested Carlos, who gets up first, have his breakfast first, and I’d eat after we dropped the dog off because I don’t need to go in as early.

I awoke at 6:45. We had fifteen minutes to leave, so I jumped out of bed and brushed my teeth, got dressed, threw on a ball cap and went out to the kitchen where Carlos … was preparing to make a couple of Café con Leches! I said:
“We have to go! We have to get Ozzo to the vet before 7:30.”
Carlos was stunned:
“Well, when can I have breakfast!”
“You’re right, call the vet and tell them we’ll be there at eight or so … after you have breakfast because they’ll wait on surgery for your breakfast!”
This is the same man who, when we lived in Miami, had a forty-five-minute commute to work each morning, and one morning, as we ate breakfast, he noticed he had just twenty minutes to get to work.
“Oh my god! I’m gonna be so late …”
I started to get up from the table.
“…so, I’ll have one more piece of toast.”
Seriously.
In Perhaps He Shouldn’t Speak news … Kanye West is back and under fire for Tweeting his support for Candace Owens, a pro-Trump, anti-Black Lives Matter conservative:
“I love the way Candace Owens thinks … only free thinkers.”
Kanye failed to notice that Owens is the conservative communications director for Turning Point USA, a nonprofit that spreads right-leaning values on college campuses and is thisclose to the _____ White House. Owens oversees the group’s “urban engagement” which means she attempts to dismantle arguments about white privilege put forward by black activists and the Democratic Party and defends the NRA because “they helped to train black Americans to use guns to defend themselves against the Ku Klux Klan, a Democrat terrorist group.”

Again, Kanye, take a seat and let the grownups talk.
When Sean Hannity was named in court this week as a client of _____’s fixer Michael Cohen, he insisted their discussions were limited to the subject of buying property:
“I’ve said many times on my radio show: I hate the stock market, I prefer real estate. Michael knows real estate.”
Apparently so; Hannity’s chosen investment strategy is confirmed by thousands of pages of public records detailing a real estate portfolio of remarkable scale. The records link Hannity to a group of shell companies that spent at least $90 million on more than 870 homes in seven states over the past decade. Hannity is the hidden owner behind some of the shell companies and his attorney did not dispute that he owns all of them. But, for some of the mortgages, Hannity obtained funding from HUD, Secretary Ben Carson’s department.

Hannity did not disclose his cooperation with HUD when he had Carson on his show last June, but, during that segment, he railed against the state of public housing.

Naturally, Hannity, Carson and Fox aren’t talking because … criminals.
I’ve shared this story before but, years ago Carlos and I went to Disneyworld in Orlando. After a fabulous day we stayed for the fireworks and then began walking toward the exit; we held hands as we walked and noticed a lesbian couple walking ahead of us also holding hands.

A voice behind us shouted, “What is this? Gay Days?”

And one of the lesbian shouted back, “For us, every day is gay day.”

And now, all these years later, Disney is going even more gay by paying homage to the LGBTQ community with a red cap featuring rainbow-colored ears and a pair of Mickey Mouse hands forming a rainbow heart on the front.

Every day is gay day at Disney!
In This Is High-Larious news, remember when _____ used to boast about his appointment of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch as one of his big accomplishments?

Now, maybe not so much. It seems Gorsuch recently sided with left-leaning Justices Ginsburg, Kagan, Sotomayor, and Breyer in a case dealing with an immigrant who was facing deportation.

And now _____ is said to be fuming.

Liberal and pro-immigrant? I call it well-deserved bad karma for _____, Mitch McTurtle and the entire GOP for stealing that SCOTUS seat. They should've done the right thing and put Merrick Garland on the bench.
Oops. After 11 hours of political pushing and shoving at the Utah Republican Convention delegates forced Mittsy Romney into a primary election against state Representative Mike Kennedy for that U.S. Senate race.

Kennedy finished in first place, with 51% of the vote to Romney’s 49% percent, but neither reached the magic 60% number the get the nod.

Still, it’ll be nice to see Mittsy, who used to blast _____ but now kisses his fat ass, have to actually work for this.

Hopefully the people of Utah will just say ‘No.’
More Oops? As the Pee Tape saga continues to unfold, _____ claims he told James Comey that, well, he didn’t need to hire hookers—when he hires porn stars—and that he was only in Russia for one day when the ALLEGED golden showers took place.

But, it turns out that was another _____ lie as flight records prove he was in Moscow during the “Rainy” season for 45 hours … clearly overnight. Plus, _____’s own bodyguard had contradicted the story.

Now, I’m not saying he was peed on in Russia, but he’s clearly lying about a lot of that trip so… maybe?

As I said to _____ on Twitter:
“Urine trouble!”
I’m’a just say this … I don’t like Beyoncé. I don’t find her talented, unless talent these days is a wig machine, a weave, and an ass shaking.

There. Sue me.
Don Blankenship, a Republican running for the U.S. Senate in West Virginia suggested that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell faced conflicts of interests because his wife, Elaine Chao’s, father is a “wealthy Chinaperson.”

Blankenship is running for the Senate as a proud West Virginian with Appalachian roots, but his primary residence is a $2.4 million villa with palm trees and an infinity pool near Las Vegas.

Yup, he’s clearly a Republican who says one thing while living the other.

Oh, and even better, Blankenship is married to a Chinese immigrant, but maybe her father isn’t a rich “Chinaperson.”
Okay, so now Amazon has announced that they can deliver your packages to your car, rather than your home because they will be able to access the trunk of your car, open it, and put your packages inside; in addition, if the trunk is full, they will also be able to unlock your car and put your order inside the vehicle.

We just learned about our privacy being invaded, and personal information stolen, corrupted on Facebook and now people are going to let Amazon be able to open your car and leave something inside for you.

I cannot wait for the first Amazon customer to sue the company because their car was stolen by someone who hacked into Amazon’s system.
Dear Starbucks,

‘After you get done closing all your stores and hiving your employees a racial-bias education, could you close America and offer it to the entire country.

Asking for a country.
Did you see the photo of _____ and French President Emmanuel Macron at the White House when _____ wiped the “dandruff” off Macron’s shoulder and then said:
"They're all saying what a great relationship we have, and they're actually correct. We do have a very special relationship. In fact, I'll get that little piece of dandruff off–we have to make him perfect. He is perfect."
I kinda hoped Macron would have reached out to _____’s shoulder, tried to wipe it off, and the said:
‘Huh. Ignorant, unqualified, racist, rapist, blowhard doesn’t come off as easy.”
That would’a been fun.
In Hot Men News … a new show on BBC America, Killing Eve, features a couple of rugged looking older men who may, or may not, tickle my, um, ivories … Edward Akrout and Owen McDonnell.

On the other end of the age spectrum, we have Garrett Hodges, a high school football player and singer who, until this week, was a contestant on American idol. I love a jock with perfectly manicured brows.


Just sayin’.

If that Garrett is straight, I'll eat this plastic cup sitting here. I'm gay and his eyebrows are more manicured that mine!!!

Love that is justice judge sided with others.

I think I'm most times fashionably late. You two crack me up.

Trump is agility over something in Russia.........

Kirk said...

Great news about Disney World. I may take my next vacation there.

Deedles said...

I didn't think it was possible, but Carlos has come down a peg, well half a peg, with this late stuff. My balder half is late a lot. He hated that about his father. I like to get to the movies early because I accidently sat on some poor slob's lap once. We were late and the theater was dark and I can't see, a trifecta of oops. When we leave the house early enough to get there on time, he finds something else to do on the way. AAARRGGGHHH!!!!

Just one last thought. Kanye West is giving the mentally ill a bad name.

Mitchell is Moving said...

Jerry and I both TEND to be on time for everything. Carlos would be in big trouble with us both. As for those "older men," Akrout is 35 and McDonnell is 44. Older than what, you young pup?!?

Dave R said...

I'm always 5 minutes early... don't laugh, clocks in every room... you read that right... clocks.

Sean's not only a slumlord, he's parasitical slumlord.

My money says Antonin Scalia is spinning in his grave.

Mitt, failed Presidential Candidate now has to prove that he's qualified to even go to Congress.

I'm with you on Beyonce. In a little project I'm working on, her music is played during an autopsy.... and is considered appropriate.

Bob Slatten said...

@MM
He's ALLEGEDLY straight, but those brows beg to differ!

@Deedles
See! He's not perfect, just darn close!

@Mitch
I just meant they might be older then my usual brand of hotties. They are both a hair or two younger than I.

@Debra
Every day is gay day! Amirite?

@AM
I, too,love that Tweet!

@Dave
Beyonce and dead bodies? Sounds like it works!
