Elijah Rockin the Mic

Okay, so my boy's school play for drama club was last night, in which he played a bully. It was more like a musical. Anyway, here's a couple of pics from his little solo. I must say, he rocked it out. totally blues brothers/mick jagger style, if you ask me. I was rolling!

Here's him responding to the people behind him.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAUL!!!!

Happy Birthday Paul!
I wish I had some pictures of us when we were little, they'd be hysterical! Or from the sewers, or the grainmills, or hitchhiking home from Grand Island (misc. nipples), or falling through the ice at Delaware Lake (yes, I know it's Hoyt lake, but to me it'll always be Delaware Lake), running around a "ghostbusters" downtown on 1/2-days or playing tortoise and making you come find me...so many crazy crazy times. I wish it were still like that and we could just go on adventures all day, but alas, we had to grow up!
Love you very much, little brother!

T Minus 10 Days & Counting

Just a reminder (for anyone who knows me or cares in the least - hint, hint) that I, my man, and my boy will be touching down in the B-Lo a week from Monday (the 22nd). Can't wait to see everyone, maybe meet some of you I've known voyeuristically these past few. We will definitely be in attendance for the New Year's Eve shindig (minus the 9-year-old), which I am much looking forward to.
So listen, Paul Terry & Matt, you better clear up your calendars, because we've got three years worth of chillin to do in less than 2 weeks, plus all my other relatives to see.

scratch that, damn things happen fast

Ban on Gay Marriages Approved:



I'm ashamed, but whaddya goin do? I'm not gay so there's no one I can sue, but I'm thinking there's going to be bunch of lawsuits over it.

Crap, damn fear-mongers.

I really wish you guys could've seen some of these Yes on 8 commercials. They were pretty classic and sickening.

Talking about that your kids are going to learn in school about "boys marrying boys and girls marrying girls". Then they come up real close on this little girl whose face looked like her puppy just got ran over in front of her.

Damn fear-mongers.

Not for Republicans

So today on the way back from work after my lunch break, I saw this on a car. Not a bumper-sticker, mind you, but hand writtten (very neatly, I might add, which I always appreciate with things of import) in whiteboard marker on the back window.

"THE REPUBLICAN PARTY THINKS YOU ARE STUPID AND RACIST...PROVE THEM WRONG!!!"

Now, unlike Michele Obama, there's no backlash for me to admitting the lack of pride (or shame) of my country that I have felt in the last recent years, but this filled my heart with pride.

Seriously, no offense to Republicans, you can't help yourselves, I know that. Now, there is at least one (well, no, now that I'm thinking about it, only 1) republican that I can honestly say I love and respect personally, and he would be furious and indignant at this, at which time I would laugh at him.

For Mike - Estelle Getty's passing

Alas, Sophia is no longer, at least we can still enjoy her wonderful sarcasm on TV (thank you Lifetime).



Incidentally, Mike, last Friday I read your Rose's joke (Patty O'Furniture). Not an hour later I was enjoying my day-off morning coffee/crossword/golden girls and there was Rose telling that joke. Cracked me up. I figured the time difference was the only reason we didn't see it at the exact same time.

It was supposed to be SoCal Fires

That's all...

"So Fires..." doesn't really make any sense

So Fires For e:hodown particularly

Okay so here I am in San Diego with all these fires. This is the 2nd time since I've lived here that there have been MAJOR fire events all at once. There's about 7 fires burning right now in San Diego County & more in Orange & LA Counties. I drove down from Glendale to SD this morning (about 130 miles north) & it was basically campfire smell the whole way.

Jess, you're mama will be fine. ESPECIALLY by the ocean. It would be one thing to be in the forest or desert, but who comes to San Diego from Arizona for the desert? There's like seriously no personal threat, just really if you have a home any where canyon-esque or foresty. If she's got asthma or anything like that, she might want to wear one of those SARS masks, otherwise, she'll be fine. Also, I'm not sure if she's supposed to fly out, but I know the airport has an evacuee center at Terminal 1 for those flying in whose homes have been evacuated. I would guess they have something available for those who are due to fly out. Not sure, though...

I could see the Irvine (orange county) fires (like actual flames) from the I-5 this morning, and there were certainly parts where it was very smoky & ashses & big pieces of charred things flying around the freeway, holding on the steering wheel because the winds are like 70 mph, the source of the fires to begin with.

I'm not right in it this time, but 4 years ago, there were fires about 3 miles from my apartment. That's one time I am thankful for living in the ghetto, because the concrete jungle is hard to burn during a brush fire. They say this fire is bigger already. It's seriously insane to see. I think last I heard was 60,000 acres? That was like 2 hours ago....

TWISTED!

Twisted did you feel the earthquake this morning? I have lived here almost 6 years and have barely felt anything! I guess I shouldn't be upset about that, but it is kind of dissapointing!
