As I said earlier in the week, last Friday Carlos and I had an appointment with the tax accountant to get our taxes done. Carlos said the appointment was at 9AM … and you know where this is going.
I took the morning off—well, I took the whole day because …—and we had breakfast, took showers, got our papers ready. At 8:45 I yell…
Carlos comes down the hall and grabs his things and off we go. The accountant’s office is here in town so it’s a quick drive, and when we pull up, I notice the ‘Open’ sign is off.
“I guess she doesn’t open until 9?”
“I think so, but our appointment is at 9:30.”
“9:30? You told me 9AM!”
“I’m pretty sure I told you 9:30.”
Here we go into that usual argument where I remind Carlos that I have a better memory and don’t forget dates and times and such. Finally, I say:
“Why, if I knew the appointment was at 9:30, would I hurry you out of the house at 8:45?”
“I figured you wanted to spend some quality time with me. A little romantic moment—”
“In the parking lot of a tax accountant at 8:45AM? You need to work on your game.”
Worse yet was he suggested we go to the gas station on the corner for coffee while we wait.
Gas.Station.Coffee? I could never!
The Elton John biopic Rocketman starring Taron Egerton, Richard Madden, and Jamie Bell is getting a lot of buzz, but the word I’m worried about is that Paramount is pressuring filmmakers to cut a very gay, very nude sex scene from the film so it will get a PG-13 rating.
Seriously? A film about Elton John and you’re gonna cut a nude same-sex love scene? And a nude love scene between Taron Egerton and Richard Madden?
Earlier this week we talked Chick-fil-A and their continuing anti-LGBTQ donations. Well, at least one place is taking a stand.
The San Antonio City Council, on a 6-4 vote, removed a planned Chick-fil-A location from an airport concession agreement after a councilman flagged the company’s anti-LGBTQ activity.
Proving he’s one of the biggest idiots in the GOP, Kentucky Governor, and anti-vaxxer, Matt Bevin decided to prove he’s also unfit to be a parent when he revealed that he forced all nine of his children to purposely contract chickenpox.
“Every single one of my kids had the chickenpox … They got [it] on purpose because we found a neighbor that had it and I went and made sure every one of my kids was exposed to it, and they got it. They had it as children. They were miserable for a few days, and they all turned out fine.”
Medical experts were quick to point out how stupid this is because purposely exposing children to chickenpox can lead to pneumonia, cause secondary skin infections, encephalitis, and death.
But, hey, Bevins saved a few coins on vaccinations so what’s the issue, right?
How to Get Away with Murder actor Jack Falahee recently showed off a new tattoo on Instagram. Lotsa people wondered what it meant, including Falahee’s mother, who asked the significance, leading him to reply:
“[It’s] how many people I’ve murdered.”
His mother responded:
“Oh [How to Get Away with Murder]?”
“No, just in general.”
Falahee has the same warped sense of humor that I have, and I love it.
And he's kinda hot.
This week Betsy Devos, Secretary of Education said:
“Make no mistake: we are focused every day on raising expectations and improving outcomes for infants and toddlers, children and youth with disabilities, and are committed to confronting and addressing anything that stands in the way of their success.”
Then she cut $17.6 million in federal funding for the Special Olympics.
Fuck Betsy Devos.
Apparently one does not kiss the Pope’s ring any more, though his ass may be another story.
But I digress … during a recent mass at Holy House of Loreto in Italy, Pope Frankie Says Relax specifically asked the public not to kiss his ring and no one listened, so he whipped his rung hand away from all who came close and bent down to kiss it.
He didn’t let anyone taste it, not even the tip, and gave no reason why.
I have a few, go figure … first up is 27-year-old Hasan Piker is both hot and political, being a part of the YouTube channel, The Young Turks. Hasan was born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey and graduated from Rutgers with a B.A. in political science and communication.
I, personally, would find it hard to concentrate on what he’s saying … cuz I’m shallow like that.
Also, Beau Mirchoff, from Now Apocalypse, is back because ...OMG ... and we also have Devon Long, who plays Otto on the show. It looks like gay Otto and straight Ford, might have a little sump’n-sump’n going on but even if they don’t the scene where Ford, in a wee speedo, applied sunscreen to Otto, also in a wee speedo, was pretty steamy.
