I always did like Bert best

Friday, July 29th, 2005

You Are the Very Gay Bert and Ernie! Two grown puppets living together, sleeping in the same room? They’ve even got coordinating striped shirts! What Gay Childhood Icon Are You?

Get Outta Heeerrre!

Wednesday, July 27th, 2005

There’s a potentially-nice looking building of condos going up in one of the neighborhoods that BW and I would ideally like to live in if we ever get to move out of Suburban Crack Monkey Land. They’re supposed to be open next fall. Last time we drove by, I remembered to take down the call-for-more-info […]

Radio Free Orson

Tuesday, July 26th, 2005

I recently finished reading This is Orson Welles, which isn’t really a biography but rather a series of biographical interviews with Orson printed up in book format. Lemme tell ya, it was a lot more fun to read about Orson’s life and work in his own words than someone else’s, and I highly recommend the […]

Unsung Hero

Monday, July 25th, 2005

Today we celebrate Walter Brennan, one of the greatest “character actors” ever. I don’t understand the distinction made between “character” actors and…what? “Real” actors? “Regular” actors? Aren’t ALL actors supposed to act out characters? Denoting someone as a “character” actor makes them sound lesser, when the reality is, they are generally far superior to every […]

Fangirl Seal of Approval

Friday, July 22nd, 2005

I guess I’m -really- a fangirl now! My “Approved” fanlisting for the Duke of Wellington is now open and ready for business. You can take a look at it at I’ve completed my “fanlisting is finished” form for, and they should be linking me in a week or two. After that, I justhave […]

There goes the neighborhood

Thursday, July 21st, 2005

BW and I were out for a walk through our ‘hood, and we passed a house that had been on the market for a long time, but had just recently sold. The new resident’s car was parked in the drive. It had: Arkansas plates A Christian fish and a ‘W in 04′ sticker. As Monty […]

Seems I forgot to write a weekend recap type-thingie yesterday. (I know you were all crushed.) The highlight of the past weekend was Saturday night, when we went out to Palomino (Mmmm. Wish I could go there more often, but it’s Downtown Pittsburgh, and who wants to go to Downtown Pittsburgh?), followed by a trip […]

Sophisticated Lady

Saturday, July 16th, 2005

For all that I talk about Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, and all of those awesome Divas, deep down my true favorite Golden Age actress is this lady, Ms. Barbara Stanwyck. Today is her birthday, and this will be a long post, because I just worship this woman. The reason I love Barbara is because she […]

From the ELVIS News Desk

Thursday, July 14th, 2005

This just in: Johnathan Rhys-Myers has been nominated for an Emmy award for “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie” for his portrayal of The King! W00t!!! See, it wasn’t just me and Loupy being a couple a freakazoids, he really WAS awesome! I feel all validated and stuff now. His competition is fierce, […]

On My List

Thursday, July 14th, 2005

Time to talk about my latest waste of time and energy: fanlistings. I used to hate fanlistings, but that was because I didn’t understand what they were. I’d be searching the net for sites with content, finding fanlisting sites instead, and getting pissed off. But fanlistings aren’t about content. Now I know that the whole […]

Another “I could have told you that” Quiz Result

You Are 26% American America: You don’t love it or want to leave it. But you wouldn’t mind giving it an extreme make over. On the 4th of July, you’ll fly a freak flag instead… And give Uncle Sam a sucker punch! How American Are You?


Tuesday, July 12th, 2005

Damn. I just signed my annual reappointment for my job, and I am NOT getting any extra hours after all. Boss says that our Board of Directors would rather have two 20-hour people, so they can claim that there is always “full time customer service”, than have just one 30-hour person. Bollocks. They should come […]

Whaddaya Know!

Tuesday, July 12th, 2005

I just walked into the office 5 minutes ago, and did a HUGE double-take. My boss’s desk (remember it from last week’s “Desks of the Damned” post) was all tidied up! I can see his keyboard and desk blotter! Behold the power of suggestion.

Weekend Wrapup

Monday, July 11th, 2005

Had a very nice weekend, mostly at home. Saturday morning, we busted our butts cleaning up the yard and trimming back the hedges. Everyone should come over and look, because our yard is never gonna look this nice again for probably another year. Later that day, Cheri, Jimmy, and Tim the Enchanter came by for […]

Black and White and Hottie All Over

Friday, July 8th, 2005

Still upset over the events in London, and feeling so cut off from it. I know this sounds weird, but it makes me wish that I was there. I always say that UK feels like home to me, and I guess that goes double when something bad is happening. So since I couldn’t sit and […]

American Media, FOAD

Thursday, July 7th, 2005

33 people now confirmed dead in London. All major US (non-cable) networks are still just showing their everyday normal programming! Gawds forbid we miss The View or Price is Right because of somethin’ happening in some dang ol’ furrin’ country. Un. Freaking. Believable.

You Bastards!

Thursday, July 7th, 2005

I just went downstairs to turn on the telly to get some London news. The Today Show was reporting on it, and I sat down to watch…. but then they cut away to give a report on how this will affect things at Grand Central Station!! Who gives at fuck about Grand Central Station?!! Jeezus, […]

Oh Bloody Hell

Thursday, July 7th, 2005

BBC News (and everybody else) is reporting bombs going off at several different London tube stations this morning. So far two dead, no one knows how many injured, and the entire London transist system is at a standstill. This makes me sick to hear about. I love London, I love the Underground, and I can’t […]

Desks of the Damned

Wednesday, July 6th, 2005

Whistler and I, being nosey bastards, thought it would be fun to sneak photos of our co-workers hideous desks, then mock them on the internet. Well, I only have one co-worker, my boss, but his desk is messy enough for three or four people. (As an aside, I’ve observed in my career that librarians [present […]
