video: ‘atta girl!

What’s a boy in “glances” supposed to do…

I still say there needs to be a cruising protocol. It needs different applications for different arenas, but we need rules and guidelines to follow. I’ve played “eye and smile” tag with someone around the building for months now. I’m...

I. Am. In. No. Mood.

Remarked by me this morning as I was dealing with a “crisis” around the office: I am having a ‘fat day’. And you do not want to mess with a single gay man in his mid-30s having a ‘fat day’,...

OMG I’d luv to work 4 ur company!

KOKO: keep on keepin’ on…

It ain’t pretty outside, sort of a steady stream of misty rain that refuses to turn into light or heavy rain. Walking to work was like having a slightly chilly spa facial treatment. I treated myself with a latte from...

Ignorance is Strength

In yet another effort to simultaneously move us closer and take us back to “1984”, the current administration is making changes to the language of some federal agencies. There are good reasons for it, but it does reinforce the fact...

Who is it that wears Prada, now?

I snagged the above AP Photo from Wonkette, Popemania: George & Laura & Jenna Bush Say Hi To Pope! I looked at this picture and the only thing that came to mind was the Pope givin’ shout-outs to all his...
