About Me

I truly believe that we will all live in peace and brotherhood someday. And so that I don't lose my faith in humanity, I will live my life as if that day had already happened.

This was before Kamala Harris was announced for VP. And of course, before our beloved RBG died.

Friday Night Vodka Buzz. Ask me anything.

I’m getting a little help from 10mg of Indica tincture...

I love you all...

Friday Night Vodka Buzz. Ask me anything.



I love you all...

Good evening, Loungers.

Scored the day off tomorrow. Thought I'd check in and see how everyone is doing...


Such things as Republicans are made of.

When I was seven or so, I was invited to a birthday party. It wasn't for one of my friends, but for the younger brother of a friend.

I got a gift, and went to the party.

After the cake and ice cream, the party games, and the giving of the gifts, the party moved into one of those de-focused play and socializing periods that happens at kids' birthday parties.

The mother of the birthday boy was admiring the gift I had given him, and handed it to me to play with for a while. The birthday boy saw this from across the room, dashed over to me, yanked it out of my hand, and screeched at me that it was "MINE!".

That he had been playing with another group of toys in another group of party-goers mattered not at all. He was furious.

When this memory occurred to me not long ago, I thought: "I just bet that motherfucker grew up to be a Republican!"

The worst kind of political correctness

is avoiding the word ‘racist’ because it offends racists.

I'm not transgender, but I'm crying!

He has your back!

My heart goes out to him every time he stumbles a little...

Dr. Biden looking stunning, as usual...



I'm settled in with a gin and tonic to watch President Biden's address to Congress.

Looking forward to the historic moment when he is greeted by two women at the head of the chamber, for the first time in American history. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Vice President Kamala Harris.
