AS I WAS SAYING, THINKING, ASKING, QUESTIONING AND…   Leave a comment

1) If you haven’t seen and need a laugh take a look at http://tinyurl.com/8qxp84e

2)Read Windancer’s blog   http://www.blogster.com/windancer/how-sweet-it-is-1    then go to      https://bricksforbears.org.au/buy-a-brick.aspx

3) Now Republican christians are calling me a ‘toad’—last I heard when you kiss a toad you get a handsome Prince!! Here I am!

4) I will NOT complain all winter when we have a high of ONLY 70 degrees!!

5) Election Day Eve–November 6–I will be at the theatre seeing “Million Dollar Quartet” listening to “Elvis, Jerry Lee, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash” and not to all the ‘predictions’–hopefully it will be decided by the time I get home!

6) As nasty as this election has been/is it looks like future ones will even be worse because “We the people” don’t rebel against it.

7) On November 14 I will be interviewed for our local newspaper–of course when it is published I will post it here.

8) When did ‘first responders’ become part of our everyday language? 9/11?

9) I HATE IT!!! Turning the clocks ahead and losing an hour of sunlight in the evening–I want DST all year round!

10) Been talking about “A Chorus Line” (again, still, yet) and suggest if you haven’t seen the show or want to relive it again see the DVD “Every Little Step”!

11) How people see me–one person this week said I must have had a sad life– another one, jokingly, said, “If you don’t stop being so positive I am going to slap you!” while a third said “You have had a fascinating life full of adventures.” I’ve never seen my life as sad, adventurous yes with a lot of ups and downs but I have been extremely lucky in having the friends I’ve had and have.

12) If you are interested in having a book published I would suggest you contact Larry E. Grabb at AuthorHouse–lgrabb@authorhouse.com  I’ve dealt with him and AuthorHoues and I don’t have a negative thing to say about them–which is rare when it comes to publishers!! LOL

13) Something that drives me crazy, and I haven’t figured out yet, is how or do you even tip in the new type of fast food restaurants where you order and pay at the cashier’s station, get your own drinks and plasticware but you are served your main course by someone. Having been a server I feel guilty but… What do you think/do?

 

AND SINCE THE PEOPLE WHO USED THE TERMS STILL HAVEN’T ANSWERED I THOUGHT I WOULD REPEAT THESE QUESTIONS A FEW MORE TIMES UNTIL THEY GET THE GUTS TO EXPLAIN WHAT THEY THINK THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT!

 

14) Once again 2-3 people (nongay) have mentioned the ‘gay lifestyle’ and once again I will ask them (I think this is the 10th or 11th time) what is the ‘gay lifestyle’ and how does it differ from the nongay lifestyle?

15) For nongay people–2 people, 1 a woman, another a man, both Republicans and christians, referred to being ‘anti-gay’ (the man), not ‘pro-gay’ (the woman) and at the same time claimed to have gay friends. Really the people who you don’t want to let get married when they love each other, you who don’t want them to get the 1000+ tax deductions you get, the people you don’t want to be boy scout leaders or teachers or in the service, you who don’t want them giving a loving home to children–and the list goes on–you who don’t want to give them equal rights and look at them as inferior to you —you really think they of them as friends?!?!? Do you really equate abortion with being gay and people who have sex with animals and men(!!!) who have 6 wives? What makes a gay person your friend? They are civil to you? They don’t put you down? Don’t throw you out when you go to their bars and play darts. They don’t make a pass at you –is that because they have nongay radar or maybe you are just too ugly or your attitude comes across? I am just curious how you define the word friend?

16) Last, but not least, wouldn’t it be great if the ‘losing’ party in the election will not say anything negative, about the winner, for at least a year???

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM FLOATING AROUND   Leave a comment

t


(flotsam, jetsam, lagan and derelict describe specific kinds of a wreck)

1) Once again 2-3 people (nongay) have mentioned the ‘gay lifestyle’ and once again I will ask them (I think this is the 10th or 11th time) what is the ‘gay lifestyle’ and how does it differ from the nongay lifestyle?

2) For nongay people–2 people, 1 a woman, another a man, both Republicans and christians, referred to being ‘anti-gay’ (the man), not ‘pro-gay’ (the woman) and at the same time claimed to have gay friends. Really the people who you don’t want to let get married when they love each other, you who don’t want them to get the 1000+ tax deductions you get, the people you don’t want to be boy scout leaders or teachers or in the service, you who don’t want them giving a loving home to children–and the list goes on–you who don’t want to give them equal rights and look at them as inferior to you —you really think they of them as friends?!?!? Do you really equate abortion with being gay and people who have sex with animals and men(!!!) who have 6 wives? What makes a gay person your friend? They are civil to you? They don’t put you down? Don’t throw you out when you go to their bars and play darts. They don’t make a pass at you –is that because they have nongay radar or maybe you are just too ugly or your attitude comes across? I am just curious how you define the word friend?

3) For gay people—read # 2–do you really think these are your friends? Is your self-esteem so low? Have you bought the lies they have told you about being a freak, not going to Heaven, that they love the sinner not the sin, to stop throwing your sexuality in their face when your whole life you have had theirs thrown in your face and in many cases (proms, weddings, engagement parties, baby showers, movies, TV, magazines, newspapers, etc.) made you participate in? Do you call them friends like in “I have nongay friends” or do you have some other reason for allowing them to call you friends? What? Why? Is a friend someone who stabs you in the back with trashy ‘gay’ jokes, calls gays all sorts of negative names, teach their children how ‘bad’ gays are?

4) Anyone who reads my posts and/or comments know I love apostrophees!!

5) Why are most people who dislike me Republicans AND christians? Can anyone show me where I have stated I was a Democrat? (Maybe my stalker who keeps a record of EVERYTHING I post can point it out?) And why do christian bloggers show so much hate?

6) I thought I got lucky–one blogger at a site said she was going to ignore me and in the following days left comments (which I didn’t read) for me–guess I’m not lucky! Funny how so irresistible–one blogger even dedicated a blog to me–very abusive but obviously secretly in love with me!! LOL

7) Am I still silly enough to believe that ALL AMERICANS will get behind whomever is elected? At least for the first year? No name calling, no blaming, no trash talk, etc? At 76 I still believe in Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Elves, etc.!

8) I won’t go into it but something happened Sunday that made me verify that I really am still a sexy guy and ‘got it’! The joy of life certainly doesn’t end when you are in your 70s!

9) What’s wrong with Republican women? A friend of ours has two daughters who are voting for Romney because their husbands are!! Now isn’t that a nice and dutiful wife? And I hope they walk 2 steps behind their husbands at all times!

10) Fantasy Fest is in Key West this weekend–with all the wind we are getting the news cameras couldn’t show the streets—many of the people wearing bare costumes are wearing less because of the weather! Welcome to our world!

11) On the news just now–next weekend we will be going down to the low 60s, high 50s, by the morning–have to get my wool scarf, ear muffs, heavy jacket– wait I don’t get up in the morning–by the time I get up the sun is out, it is warm and life is good!

12) Just got the news that I have been blocked by two more bloggers on a web site where I think I hold the record for being blocked–it is a badge of honor!! And is it just coincidence that both are christian AND Republican?

QUESTIONS, ANSWERS, STATEMENTS AND SUCH   Leave a comment

1) This young lady needs all the encouragement we can give her–she is representing the USA in the volley ball Olympics–give her a good word! http://www.blogster.com/myolympicjourney/tomorrow   OR   http://tinyurl.com/7foyyhw   I think you may have to register but you don’t have to write blogs! LOL    

********************************************************************

2) Has any Republican (besides winning) and/or christian ever written a positive post?

********************************************************************

3) On Saturday, July 21, it will have been 4 years since I stopped smoking–I had my last cigarette just before I was wheeled in for my aorta valve replacement operation–I am still surprised at how easy it has been and second hand smoke doesn’t bother  me at all–I spent over 60 years smoking 2-3 packs a day and never once attempted to give it up!

******************************************************************

4) I have become a fan of “Undercover Boss” on TV–always makes me tear up at the end when the boss starts doing things for the employees–Am I a softie? :O)

******************************************************************

5) Why I hate to do housework!!! I send my socks to the cleaners so it was a big deal on Saturday when I decided to polish the furniture–it wasn’t until I got to the 3rd piece of furniture that I realized I was using oven cleaner not furniture polish!! In my defense the cans looked alike–I am proud of myself though–I did clean the oven!!

******************************************************************

6) I keep on hearing/reading about a screen shot–how do you take one? Why?

******************************************************************

7) Come on–at my age do you really think I care if you don’t like me or criticize me? Or will affect me one way or the other? Ironically I have found out that it is mainly Republicans, christians (small c), drunkards, closeted gays and lonely, old people who do it!

******************************************************************

8) What’s worse–having a child who doesn’t care or not having a child at all?

******************************************************************

9) I wish I had taken a video–or had someone taking it–while I was wrapping a package to mail out! I used so much tape–a lot around/on my hands. I looked like I was going to greet my lover dressed in saran wrap!

******************************************************************

10) We ‘lost’ a member of our Breezeway crowd. Right now it looks like she might not coming back. If you know of anyone who lives alone check on them twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, no matter how annoyed they may get. She had fallen in her bathroom at night and had not been found (or heard her calling for help in a weak voice) until the next morning.

******************************************************************

11) Why are we having a Democrat and Republican convention? We know who is running and all they will be doing is spending millions of dollars that could be put to better use. It is bad enough all the money the two candidates are spending on advertising why add something so unnecessary.

******************************************************************

12) Someone wrote about travelling around the States and all I could think of is why did I only go to 49 States? Why did I never get to North Dakota???

AM I TOO ARGUMENTIVE? AM I TOO NEGATIVE??? AM I TOO?????   Leave a comment


(THE POINT  JANUARY 8, 2012)

I left a rant comment on someones blog yesterday–I felt what they said was a personal slap against me though in no way was I mentioned/referred to. I have found people rant/attack me, and many others, because I am gay and/or not a christian (that is a small c because they certainly aren’t LOL) and/or, possibly a democrat. I can understand where they are coming from and, as a rule, won’t read, let alone comment on their blog but I did both in the past few days.

In 1972 I went through therapy and the first thing I learned was to get negative people out of my life and that helped tremendously in my getting ahead in life. In the past 6-8 years blogging I have been in 2 ‘war blogs’–what a waste of time that was!!!–and once in awhile have been negative to bloggers who proclaim their was is the only way whether it be defaming someone because their political beliefs are different or because they weren’t Muslim, Christian, Republican or like them.

I have noticed that I have very little patience lately and lash out at people who attack me and/or others. I am gay but that doesn’t mean I expect the whole world or someone who isn’t to be gay. Now I may think heterosexuality is ‘wrong’ but I am not attacking you if you are one and I see no reason why anyone is attacked for their homosexuality. Okay you don’t believe in it, you think it is a choice, you think it is responsible for your divorce, your religion is against it but why go out of your way to post a blog that just might turn the corner for a teenager who already has been put down by those who know him and is now being put down by someone who doesn’t?

Nowhere will you see that I have stated I am a Democrat–I may have said I was a ‘bleeding heart liberal’ but is spite of what some people think it is not the same thing. In any case I have read rude, crude posts about how disgusting the POTUS and/or his wife is or posts on how only certain people, who believe like they do, are the only ‘true’ Americans and then will comment on my post saying how nice I am, etc. To me that is being two faced–you can’t call me names on one page and then ‘sweet’ talk me on another.

Sorry you are your politics so don’t tell me you can like me in spite of mine–you won’t, you don’t.

There is one blogger who knows she knows everything about religion along with related subjects and knows everything about the constitution–that she knows what the men who put it together were thinking–there is another blogger who posted a blog stating it as truth, based on one report, without researching the subject or putting it in perspective. Then there is the infamous C & P blogger who never follows through and will never disagree with their ‘false’ g-ds (politicians.) There are bloggers who TELL me I choose being gay but they never state when they made the decision to be nongay. There are the ones who insult every single parent by saying that the only way to bring up a child is with a mother and father when MANY reports show that single parents can and do a great job as do same sex parents.

I stay away from them as much as I can but every once in awhile they post something that is so outrageous, so stupid, so unbelievable that I get caught up in it and respond. By doing that I get sucked in by negative people and start acting negative myself.

Since my near death experience during the holidays I find myself with very little tolerance, patience or understanding for those who attack others and their beliefs whether religious, political, sexual or even to do with weight. A thin person telling a fat person what to do is infuriating because they have no idea the mental process the fat person is dealing with and/or going through just as the young person has not dealt with life long enough to make black and white statements against old people.

Except, in fun, I try not to be negative with people–yes, I am sarcastic and that is hard to indicate in a post or a comment–and I like fun people.

There was/is a blogger who I told everyone to read–they were funny, informative–we got along great and then, for whatever reason–his religion?–he attacked me for being gay. There was another blogger who was doing something monumental and I kept encouraging them, wishing them ‘break a leg’, many positive comments about what they were embarking on–never a single acknowledgement from that person–I bet they wonder why I have ignored them for so long now.

I have to get back to the 24/7 positive person I was/really am/and can still be which means avoiding reading certain bloggers, deleting any comments they leave on my blogs and getting into the trap of negativity.

I am not a very forgiving person as I feel if you have betrayed me once you will betray me a second time and betrayals take in many forms–it may sound corny, that “Love means never having to say you’re sorry’ but one should not say/write and/or do something they will feel they have to apologize for–spontaneity is great but rudeness isn’t–the person who helps someone commit a crime is as guilty as the one who commits it!
