What's Worse Than...

What's worse than finding a cockroach in your coffee?

Finding it as it slips into your mouth on your last sip. Ew!

This didn't happen to me, but it did happen to Boopy (the poor thing). He was sufficiently grossed out that he's avoiding the corner deli and since started making coffee at home. I don't blame him.

As for me, I've never stopped going to a restaurant because I've found a roach in the food, especially if the food is good; growing up eating in Chinatown restaurants, it happens. Avoiding it for a few days? Maybe.

With Boopy, even with the strongest convictions I couldn't avoid him for a days.

Especially when today is the two year anniversary of our first date.

Cheers and Jeers to Rowling

Cheers to J. K. Rowling for acknowledging that Dumbledore is gay. Jeers to her for not writing him as gay.

Then again, what is there really to write about? His sexuality isn't at all important to any storyline in the books; including it would be an obvious political statement (of sorts). In a word, unnecessary.

I've always had an inkling that he could be gay; an old, beloved educator who was never married nor had any children. The possibility is just staring at you in the face.

Too bad it wasn't touched on. In fact, it's too bad Rowling didn't write any gay characters into the story. A pair of lesbian witches in flannel robes and mullets would have been sweet; especially if they were part of the Order.

Speaking of which, I don't remember Sirius Black ever dating a woman...

Bachelor Party = Party Bus + Stripper?

I had the privilege, no, pleasure of attending the crazy madness that was my friend Ry's bachelor party. Aside from the obvious entertainment value of being face-humped by a muscle hunk in a banana hammock, being on a moving 'party bus' brought the insanity to a whole new level.

Ode to October

Oh dear October, why must you tease me with your cool, but not cool enough for a jacket, weather? Do you not realize that I've just bought a new fall coat? Oh when will you stop playing these games with me!

Anyway, if you haven't see it already - check out the SNL skit, Iran So Far. I must have listened to it a billion times by now.
