The other day Carlos said to me:

“I have good news.”

“What is it?”

“I will be out of the house for a while tomorrow.”

I shouted, “Thank you Jesus” and threw myself to the ground in ecstasy, as Carlos continued:

“I have a translation in Columbia at …”

“I don’t need details, let me savor the thought.”

It all faded away as I  smiled at the idea of being home alone. I am a person who doesn’t mind being alone, in fact, I like it sometimes, but with Carlos working only from home during the pandemic, and me working from home two or three days a week, he’s always around. So I reveled in my joy.

The next day came and off he went. I puttered around the house, read a book, listened to music, did some laundry, sat on the ack deck with Tuxedo, and a few hours later Carlos called and told me he had a surprise; I said:

“You’re staying out?”

“No. I have a surprise for you.”

“Yeah, you’re staying out?”

“No. I’ll give it to you when I get home.”

I thought, Mitchell brings San Geraldo flowers every so often, so maybe it’s flowers? Nope. Even better … a Chori-Pollo dinner from one of our local Mexican restaurants. He knows me so well.

My husband. I think I’ll keep him.

I mean, come on. Tuxedo can’t even vote or fire a gun and he understands this nonsense. Sheesh!

Over there on Fox News Lies, Maria Bartiromo complained to Eric The Dumb One about President Biden's 5th trip home to Delaware, and The Dumb One said, with a straight, hideous face:

"I don't even know where to begin. It's heartbreaking to us. I saw how much time & effort my father put into the job."

Yes, he did.

Well, I always knew I had some affinity for travelling to Oz but I never really saw it until now.

Two weeks after eight people were gunned down in Atlanta, the Georgia Senate approved legislation to loosen the state’s gun laws. State Senator, and certified Qidiot, Bo Hatchett said:

“This is a Second Amendment protection bill that further recognizes Georgia’s commitment to protect its citizens and their Second Amendment rights.”

But NOT their right to vote.

On the upside in Georgia, after a week of saying almost nothing about the state’s new restrictive voting policies, two of the state’s biggest corporations, Coca-Cola and Delta, have both announced that they oppose the new voter suppression legislation. Okay, so maybe now you can put your money, your product and your influence out there, like, well, like this:

And Delta, since one of your famous taglines is:

“We love to fly and it shows.”

… howsabout a new one where you get people to the polls, or that lone voter drop-box? I think:

“We love to drive people to vote, and it shows.”

… sounds nice.

Volkswagen’s American division slipped up a bit this week with an announcement that suggested the company’s name will change in a nod toward the automaker’s investment in electric vehicles.

The company will be called Voltswagen,

The slip-up appeared briefly on Volkswagen’s media site before it was removed, but VW was not hacked, and the announcement is no joke; it’s not a marketing ploy and the plan is for the change to be made permanent.

Just not right now.

Well, this was kind of a cool message I got on Twitter this week:

Hi, Bob!

I've updated my blogroll and made sure to include you. Also, your "Gaggle of Qidiots" story has been added to today's "News & Pop Culture Round-Up" on Stonewall Gazette. Cheers

Shane Smith, Editor

And here’s my link. Very nice, I must say!

This week’s morsel is one Janis Danner, a German born model who simmers and smolders.

Those eyes! That smile! That hair! That body!

I was thinking of asking him to Smallville, where, and I’m quoting Bette Midler here, I would dress up like Poland and he could invade me?


Mistress Maddie said...

That Tweet had me ROLLING!!!!!

"I don't even know where to begin. It's heartbreaking to us. I saw how much time & effort my father put into the job."

bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahahhaahahahahahahh haaaaaaa hhaaaa

Yes keep Carlos dear...he bring meals!!!!

As far as I'm concerned GA is a fucked up mess. And if they can't vote these idiots my mind the state along with Texas and FL is off the map.

Now I think I trip to OZ is in order.

Helen Lashbrook said...

I wasn't aware that Germans wore their underwear in the bath....or does that make it easier to wash their smalls?

Congrats on making it onto Stonewall Gazette

anne marie in philly said...

OMB, you're famous now!

with coke & delta, too little too late, white boys! FUCK THEM AND THEIR SHITTY PRODUCTS!

carlos loves you so. and tuxedo always knows everything.

the dogs' mother said...

(Carlos) (Tuxedo)
Good husband! And Tuxedo
good king of all his subjects.
xoxo :-)

uptonking said...

Great quote of the week. Georgia can eat me like a peach!

Janis... zzz. I dunno. Feed him a sandwich and wait 20 years? We'll see.

Congrats on the Stone Gazette shout out! Woot woot!

I love Voltswagen. Very smart. And that vehicle pictured... NICE!

Delta and Georgia and Homo Depot need to do a lot more than just issue a press statement. They pay taxes in that state (one would assume) so they should have a say in what is fair. Corporations are constantly throwing around their weight to protect the rich. The poor and disenfranchised? Not so much.

I love this argument... guns rights vs. voting rights. It is spot on. Also, apparently in Georgia it is not their right to expect to live when they venture out of their house.

Your Oz looks like my prairie... or how I hope it will look. Although... I must say, I won't be putting anything that color in any of my people holes.

Maria Bartiromo makes the National Enquirer look like Time Magazine. Seriously, that woman is deranged and grasping at anything. She has nothing to report. No stories. Unless she wants to start ripping on the GQP and GaetzGate! (was surprised there was no mention of that douchebag here today).

Tux is a love. When does he go to the vet?

And sweet that you have a man like Carlos.

Kizzes. And thanks for the feed!

Moving with Mitchell said...

Tuxedo is a genius. Carlos is definitely a keeper (I just walked in the door with flowers for San Geraldo). And Janis Danner... I'll take two, please.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

VW says the "Voltswagen" thing was a prematurely-released April Fools Day joke. I don't see what all the fuss or outrage is about. Even if it's not a joke, I think it's a great name for electric cars!

Agnes Goldberg-DeWoofs said...

Keep that man Bob! And I just wish more of our own citizens knew half of what Tuxedo knows.

I must say I didn't get all the hoopla either over the VOLTSwagon thing either. If it's real...very clever.

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

Ohhhh Carlos KNOWS where's at. Yum ChoriPollo (you know how much I love chorizo).
The whole Faux News universe lives in a cloud of delusion and fuckery that smells like stale after shave and AquaNet.
I want swimming and smoldering to be my full-time jobs. Especially if I get to look like that, hun.
Congrats on the mention! Woot Woot!
And seriously, that tweet is the best. Muddy waters! LOL
Gimme that Voltswagen. Now.


Bob said...

@ Maddie
Carlos is a sweetheart and a keeper!
And I can’t believe The Dumb One said that with a straight face!
Oz would keep you terribly busy!!!

He can wear whatever he wants in the bath!!
It was nice to see my little spot mentioned elsewhere, thanks.

I prefer infamous! =)
Carlos is a very good husband. I got lucky.

Good husband, good cat!

I Tweeted Wallace that I’d help him with the food and water, and I would.
He’s just a morsel; the main meal awaits.
It was kinda cool to see my link on their site.
And I, too, love that VW bus thing; my parents had one when I was a kid and I Always loved that car.
Those corporations need to put some money and help behind their words.
Guns? Come and get it. Votes; let me see your ID. Something’s way off.
Tuxedo is on a new diet—and he loves it—and will go back for more bloodwork in three months to see how he’s faring. Thanks for asking.
Carlos is a very good man. Indeed.

One smart cat, he is!
I thought, flowers? Food? And food is a good one.

I like Voltswagen. I wish they’d keep it, though I understand how you may not want to change your company name after seventy years or so.

@ Agnes Goldberg-DeWoofs
Carlos is a total keeper. And Tuxedo needs his own news channel … Tux News?
I, too, like Voltswagen. Smart sounding.

He knows how to get me!!! I, too, love a good chorizo!
I wonder if I can go back to school and get a doctorate in smoldering.
I want a Voltswagen, even if they don’t change the name!

Treaders said...

You're all bluff - I suspect you know exactly how miserable you'd be without Carlos for a month!

Sadie J said...

Time alone and a meal? Oh my-- I'm envious!

Dave R said...

Eric the Dumb sounds too much like a Viking name and they would have skinned him alive.

Tuxedo's smart.

You have to remember that Georgia Republicans are going to do everything they can to hold onto their base.

Bob said...

Called me on it!!!!

It was a nice surprise!

Sadly, though, as we saw in November and after, the base is leaving the GQP ... which is why they are panicked.

Travel said...

Line of the day "I would dress up like Poland and he could invade me."

Bob said...

All credit for that line goes to Bette Midler.

Steve Reed said...

Bette is the best! Was Maria Bartiromo always such a nut case, or did she get worse in the Trump era? I thought she was pretty respectable back in the day, but maybe I just didn't know about her inner crazy.
