Please Sister

I did not read the news today - oh boy.

I've steered away from papers, on-line or hard copy. No NPR. No nothing. I made the mistake of engaging in political 'banter' on FB and realized early-on that was a mistake.  I couldn't stand people lauding John Bolton with praise. He's done nothing noble.

So anyhooo........why not just change direction entirely?

David Sedaris has a new essay out centered on his sister, Amy.

It's good. It's not great. But it's not BLOTUS & Co., so.......that's a win.

And it is linked here.

FYI - as a general rule, I don't read Elle........not that there's anything wrong with it.......

Lo / Hi

If you hadn't noticed, save for a small John Bolton comment in yesterday's post, I've kind of been avoiding anything Senate - Impeachment related.

Emotionally, I can be all over the place on this. And by "all over the place", I mean utter despair or glimmer of hope. Those are really the only two things out there for me politically. No real in between. And let me tell you - it. is. exhausting !!!

I'm sure if I made an appointment, got pre-certed, paid my co-pay and got on Dr. Spo's couch, he'd diagnose me with PTSD.

I know it is dangerous for patients to go diagnosing themselves (thanks WebMD!), and while I am not a boarded behavioural health specialist, I believe that since November 2016 I am living post-trauma. ....and I'm not sure I am even kidding.

This last week of highs and lows regarding this mock trial is infuriating. I did (and do) still think it's a GOP sham - from #moscowmitch to Susan Collins. Even Romney's words of having witnesses falls flat. If course, I never thought you could believe a word from his mouth.

But then John Fucking Bolton has seemingly been holding on to a huge tidbit of information that he'd rather save for his book than for his country. So - clearly mixed emotions:  info that could really bring down BLOTUS vs John Bolton's idiocy vs #moscowmitch now knowing there is actual cooberation to the charges and still wants no witnesses and still wants to move it through at lightening speed.

And now you don't have to wonder why I feel so fucked up with all of this.

The current ray of light is that as of 21:05 yesterday, #moscowmitch doesn't think he has enough votes to block witnesses.  Praise be.

But I'm going to bed in a few minutes, so who knows what the news will be in the a.m. And who knows if Bolton would even testify, and if so, to what would he testify.

I think of Whitewater and Susan McDougal, refusing to testify to the republican run House and given 18 months in prison. The democrats were weak with the dozen folks who refused to testify. Not one held in contempt. WEAK.

This whole thing of nothing sticking to BLOTUS has really got me bummed out. The news as of late for the democrats running has been nothing but bad . They certainly can't play nice and will come back to bite them all, and in turn anyone looking to overturn the White House in 2020.

.....maybe it's time to up the dose of my antidepressant.

I feel bad for Kobe Bryant and his family.  I feel very sorry for the folks who hitched a ride on his helicopter.

I know everyone has their time and place, as we are not here forever, but you gotta figure it was a shitty last 60-90 seconds of their life. The terror and probably almost known certainty before the actuality has to be sheer terror.

Bryant was a hell of a basketball player, and apparently a great businessman as well, as he left his companies with over $2 billion (with a 'b') in assets.

He was also a probable rapist.


I mean, he settled for an undisclosed sum of money to the woman who claims he sexually assaulted her. Nothing says 'not guilty' like a cash settlement and a non-disclosure agreement, am I right?

I only bring it up, as almost no one else has. Some reports of his death don't mention it at all. Those who do, have it buried in paragraph 27 - and as we all know, people's attention spans don't usually make it that far in any article.

Again, I only bring it up as if he weren't a super well known, wealthy sports figure, it would lead the story, if not the headline:  Rapist and 8 Others Die in Crash.

But you're not going to see that here.  .....and that faux-headline is the wrong approach as well, I might add.

I have said it before and will again, I'm sure, but I hate hate hate it when BLOTUS is right (well, to a degree), about #fakenews.

Not his fake news, that is made up and tries to pass off as truths. Not his lies that actual truth in news are lies, when it makes him look bad.  No, I'm talking the partial truths or the skewed parts - as news is biased. No doubt about it. So Bryant gets a different end to his story (well, to a degree) than (m)any charged or convicted felon.

Let's look at Greta Thunberg this past week.

The top image is the one that most all media used of her and four other women who spoke regarding climate change at Davos last week - and was the one AP sent out for use. The bottom one was the full image. Yes, the Ugandan activist was cropped out.

I find it hard to believe this was a coincidence. It's bias and it's real.  I don't even think you can make the argument for 'space in printing'. If so, you could have cut the white girl out on the far right. ....but the AP didn't do that.

So you get partial news, because, I dunno - it makes the readers feel better? The advertisers?

I'm not belittling Bryant or his death. Both are just facts. And I'm not making fun of his death when I say the next two things:

1. It took BLOTUS off the front page for two days. Hall-e-fucking-lujah. Mind you that can be a band thing, as he like diversions. Though I think John Bolton took care of that 12 hours later.

2. LeBron cannot savor his moment of passing Bryant's scoring standing just the day prior to the fatal accident. I like LeBron the humanitarian - with his decent works with at risk youths, but I am very over the basketball player.

So, I'd like the media to do a better job of reporting. I think that's the bottom line here. Not only would it just be a reporting of fact (Kobe's death is all emotional reporting), but it's reporting the truth. Imagine how fucked BLOTUS would be if, sans emotion, rhetoric or conjecture, the press just reported the happenings of his days. He would have ended his term months ago.

Imagine how empowered women of colour might be had they been able to see the full Davos photo.

Media does us a disservice on a daily basis. I think they try to do the right thing, but ratings and advertising rates rule the roost. When your news organization makes more advertising dollars than your prime time get what they pay for.

My Music Monday

Unknown releases. That's the theme of the month. I think I can squeeze four out.

I do like the Killers. They've been featured here a few times.

That said, I usually stay away from Greatest Hits disks, as I normally have what they already offer. I mean, I'm sure bands get some sales from people who liked a song here or there, but not the rest, so the waited for compilation.  Or as a guy I used to dated called it: a copulation.........and no, he was not being "funny".

Normally anymore though, greatest hits packages include a new song or two because..........they think someone will buy an entire disk for two songs?

That might have happened before the iTunes.

So, I never paid attention to the 2013 greatest hits release from the Killers. I'm not sure I knew they had a copulation before a few months ago. They don't seem like they've been around long enough for one. But the record company like the almighty dollar, don't they?

I did, in fact, download their two "new" songs - that are now seven years old. Both seemed ok. One is ok, one is better than ok. I won't go out on a limb to say it's great. These add-ons, you gotta figure they're pulling stuff from the vault to slap onto a hastily put together product for the holiday season. I mean.......I'm guessing.

Still it took me a few listens to get into "Just Another Girl".

I like that it doesn't necessarily stick to the predicted rhyme formula. I think that might be the biggest draw for me.

I do like the rhythm section. I think Ronnie Vannucci is a great drummer. He was very impressive to see live. And once the song gets going, I really like Mark August Stoermerer's bass line.

The video? For a Killer's fan, I assume it would be cute - as the entire things is a compilation of shots from most, if not all, their other videos over the 10 years prior. I'm guessing if they looked a little harder - like 3 more minutes - they could have found someone who had more energy and could lip synch better (read: at all).  She plays all the Brandon Flowers roles. The rest of the band is just the band.

Ad of the Month

Subaru has so many good dog-centric ads, it is hard to pick just one, but what the hell.  This is coming from their newer batch of commercials and it ranks near one of their best.  My opinion, of course.

They Love Each Other

Two each. That's all I got this week, but they're good ones.

I love when he's excited to see me in the middle of a walk. 
He does it in almost the exact same place on our afternoon walks. 

Sophie is VERY attentive. 
Dozens of times per day, she grabs my arm until I go back to petting her.  

Snow Day Shep Romp
He seems to like the snow a lot. Not so much slush or salt, but snow - yes. 

It is winter. When no dad who curl up next to - you'll find her at the radiator.

Small World

Well, a 17 hour ride at Disney World wasn't wrong - it IS a small world.

Sometimes it takes a trip across the pond - metaphorically speaking - to happen upon someone who is only down the freeway.

Meredity, whom you've read about there....often, send me a few messages yesterday (which is now two days ago),  the first one being the one at your left.

My response was: "oohhhhhhhh, this isn't going to end well."

The original message was from her aunt (whose name and address I blocked out here.

This, of course, has nothing to do with her aunt, but in general, people who find this blog after say, 17 years, and have already semi-identified me, isn't going to go my way.

But I am after!  So I guess this is all like Six Degrees of Blobby.

Honestly, I'm fine she found my blog - other than the fact I used the "c" word yesterday in regards to Hillary Clinton - by which i STAND!, thank you!

The odd thing isn't that Ditto's aunt and I are separated by only 20 miles (give or take), but that she had to find me via John over at Going Gently.  That's more like 3,572 miles (give or take).

To answer the longevity question - of Dith knowing me - she comes close to 35 years, but not quite. I'm thinking Dith and I are at 32 years. Summer of '88, I believe.

To get Aunt Sally up on a few Dith / blog sightings (I mean, I'm assuming she is now a regular reader).

Meeting Dith.

A birthday tribute to Ditto. 

Here is a little photographic history.

Dith's 50th. 

I mean, you have 5,504 posts to get through.  5,500 if you read the four hyperlinked ones above. Now get crackin'.  There will be a quiz!

You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'

You know - I find Hillary Clinton to be somewhat vile.

In the 2016 primary, I did not vote for her for a couple of reasons. She was doing well enough on her own that she was already a serious contender for when the convention rolled around. The other reason: she wasn't my first choice.

It doesn't matter now who it was, but events of as late have kind of confirmed what a horrible person she probably always was. And note: I said 'person', not 'woman'. This isn't a misogynistic kind of thing. I voted for her in the general election.

I totally get that anyone who is to be president (present one excepted) has to have balls of steel.....or at least ovaries. The job calls for a calculated personality. And I'm sure it's more difficult for a female in that type of leadership role.

Side note: when in meetings lately, I notice both male and female physicians calling their male counterparts by "Dr. Fill In The Blank", but call their female counterparts by their first name. It's horribly biased. And conditioned, as the females take part in the same behaviour.

I am also not one of these folks who wants to have a beer with a candidate: not you Liz Warren, not you Shrub. First one, it seems like you've never had one in your life, and for Bush, well.......recovery!

Still, it seems that cobalt steel would be warmer and more flexible than Hillary. And less calculating, We can all say 'likeable' shouldn't matter in an election, but we are all kidding ourselves. And there is a difference between unlikeable and loathsome. In office today are both.  Reality is: we want someone we like and respect.

Back in 2015-2016 she and Debbie Wasserman-Shultz (though Deb took the fall........kind of) conspired and exercised bias against Bernie Sanders to favor Clinton - including, but not limited to, halting any access of the Sanders campaign to the DNC databases and to telling DNC staffers to only publicly talk up Clinton. Wasserman-Shultz had to resign. But she landed on her the 'honorary' chair of Clinton's campaign.  Yayyyy.......women supporting women........who are just as corrupt as men!?

In lieu of all that, Bernie endorsed Clinton eventually, and did a lot of stumping for her in the last 2-3 months of her failed campaign. Yes. Failed.

In theory, the 2016 election should have never been that close, but Hillary underestimated not only the GOP, but the DNC as well. Presumptive winner doesn't mean 'winner'. She felt she had to only sway enough undecideds to win - and she was wrong.

So, it totally baffles me - and then yes doesn't - when she has the nerve, not only to say that no one likes Bernie, but that she would consider not endorsing him should he get the nomination.

That is cunt-like behaviour.

And in the Hollywood Report you said this, no less. Thanks for setting the tone for what the Right already thinks about your kissing up to the star crowd as opposed to us commoners.

Hill - Bernie put you through your paces in 2016 when you thought it would be a cakewalk to the nomination. That your unfavorables were high is not Sanders' fault. That you couldn't sell yourself to some of his folks after the nomination is not his fault - you dismissed them early on and continually. But you beat Bernie - so let it go.

Who you didn't beat was BLOTUS. If you find him half as repugnant as whomever is running your Twitter feed, then you'd think you'd want him out of the White House should Sanders win the nomination.

I get that Bernie can be hard to take, but honey, look in the mirror.

You don't have to endorse him. You don't have to vote for him. You don't have to campaign for him. Just shut the fuck up and keep your opinions to yourself. If you want to derail him should he get the nomination, go for it - but you'll be reviled by just about anyone who isn't wearing a MAGA hat.

You already have my vote for that.

Cooking with Blobby

What does one do on a Tuesday night for dinner?  But not just a regular Tuesday night mind you.

Yesterday marks 35 years with on Mr. 710.

I know, right ?   If I can eek out 15 more years, there is a gold anniversary somewhere for us. For two letters, 'if' is a might big word.

So, there was discussion on going out to eat. Do it up right. But middle of the week can be a non-starter depending on how our work week is going. So, I just told him I'd cook - and he picked up most of the ingredients. Most, because I forgot to tell him 'all'.  Ooops.

Salmon was my dad's most favourite meal. Let me rephrase, my mother said it was turkey, but no matter where he ate out, the order was salmon.

For the longest time - like all my life to the last year, I've never been a fan. Lox, yes. Full on salmon, not so much. But my few forays with it over the last year has made me come around - so that's what we had for dinner. With broccoli. On one sheet.

It seems like a lot of ingredients, but this is super simple and relatively quick.

4 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon honey 1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated (about 1 tablespoon)
1 garlic clove, finely grated
1 pound broccoli, trimmed and cut into florets, thick stems discarded
2 scallions, trimmed and cut diagonally into 1 1/2-inch segments, plus thinly sliced scallions for garnish
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for brushing the salmon
Kosher salt and black pepper
4 (6-ounce) skin-on salmon fillets
½ lime, for serving
Sesame seeds, for serving

Heat the oven to 425 degrees.

In a small bowl, whisk 3 tablespoons sesame oil with the soy sauce, vinegar, honey, ginger and garlic until smooth. Set the glaze aside.

Place the broccoli florets and 1 1/2-inch scallion segments on a sheet pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and the remaining 1 tablespoon sesame oil. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, toss well and roast for 5 minutes.

While the broccoli and scallions roast, place the salmon fillets on a plate and pat dry with paper towels. Brush all over with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Toss the broccoli and scallions and move to the edges of the pan, clearing spaces in the center for the salmon fillets. Place the salmon fillets, evenly spaced, on the center of the pan. Brush the fillets generously with the glaze.

Return the pan to the oven and roast until the salmon is cooked through but still slightly rare in the center, about 12 minutes.

Squeeze the lime over the broccoli and sprinkle with salt. Scatter the sliced scallions and sesame seeds over the salmon, and serve hot.

First off, the broccoli was great (though way too much for two people)!  I know I should lead with the salmon, but if you roast broccoli the wrong way, everything is ruined. The lime really adds something, as most people use lemon. This was much better.

The salmon was flaky and cooked well. The glaze was nice, but next time, I think half way through cooking, I'd put on another application.

The fillets seems large, and we figured there'd be leftovers. Alas, there were not. Broccoli, yes. Salmon, no.

This one we'd definitely do again.

Take This Job and Shove It

Impeachment proceedings continue - as faux as they are, or are going to be. Yeah, I called #moscowmitch about not allowing C-Span cameras in the room.

I am SO tired of their behind closed doors bullshit. But unfortunately, I don't think my call will do a thing.

But in other news...........

Devin Nunes' cow's owner * - Devin Nunes - has his lawyer trying to get California representative Ted Lieu to publicly apologize for insinuating that Nunes has met and knows serial political interferer, Lev Parnas. Oh and that he worked to conspired with Parnas to undermine the US Government.

Oh - and if there is no apology, then Lieu will be sued by Nunes - and by association, his cow too. Naturally.

But Lieu, for whom I have great admiration, wasn't about to just stand down so not to get hit with a lawsuit. No. He did one better. And he didn't even have to call his lawyer to do it.

....and yes, you have to read the whole letter.

Personally, I would have liked him to add, "up your ass" to the last line, but I get that not everyone is as crass as I am.

For the life of me, I cannot find a response from the lawyer, Nunes or the cow!  Has anyone else seen / heard of a response? I'm curious.

*for those unaware, there is a Twitter account called "Devin Nunes' Cow" (@DevinCow), to which Rep Nunes is suing...................a made up twitter cow.

My Music Monday

Released tracks from artists I like that I somehow missed. 'tis the theme.

Fleetwood Mac has been through like 89 different iterations. At least six alone since Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nick joined the band.

So in that regard, how difficult could it be to miss a transition? Not very, I say.

After Buckingham departed in 1987, the band brought in Rick Vito and Billy Burnette as replacements. This version of the band lasted one album and maybe two tours - one for sure.

Somewhere in 1991-1992, the band became a foursome - with Nicks and Vito leaving the band.

Allegedly on their 1992 collection 25 Years - the Chain, the quartet of Christine McVie, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood and Burnette recorded a McVie song called "Love Shines".

Like a lot of her music in the 1987-1995 years, this was written with her then second husband.

McVie was the ground between Nicks flightiness and Buckingham's wanna-be quirkiness. They all needed each other to off set the other two - no matter which way you look at that triad.

"Love Shines" is nice and harmless. That is the McVie way. But this is ok, but not overly interesting. It's also not as lightweight as the disk she did with Buckingham back in 2017.

Sunday, January 19, 2020


I got invited to a private Facebook group, which I immediately accepted, but then immediately thought I should have given it more thought.

The group is on Columbus LGBTQ History.

For those who need a slight Blobby history lesson of their own - I spent 14 years in Columbus and THE Ohio State University, where I met not only 710,  but my besties of whom you read about here......often.

I was "happy" enough just to be a voyeur to this group for the first few days. There seemed to be a lot of drag show pictures. Unlike many, I'm not a huge fan of the art. I don't disapprove of it or anything, but I have seen far far far too many bad shows. My thing is: if you're gonna go to all that effort and get all dolled up (let alone the prep to get make, wigs, shoes, etc), at least know how to lip synch.....or the words to the song you selected.  (though Mr. Larry. who used to cut my hair, was excellent at his drag craft!)

So the drag aspect of this history was not in my social circle. A lot of those posts were lost on me. Ditto with the gay softball stuff - as I never played.

I did kind of on-line stalk some people who posted and commented. I knew some of the folks - adjacently. And then there were the posts from 2012, and while yes, it's technically 'history', it's past my time in Columbus and that all felt foreign to me.

710 and I left town in 1995, and you know before that, homos weren't really taking their SLRs out to the gay clubs, so I have way fewer pictures than most that I could even contribute.

Morty texted me Friday night, asking if it was ok to tag me in a picture he was wanted to post. Of course it was, I said right away...............and then I double-backed making sure it wasn't from one certain night of our lives. He assured me it wasn't, so I said, 'yes'.

You see the picture above. I don't know what look for which I was going back in 1992 (?), but thankfully for all, it didn't stick. I'm there with Mitchell and Morty. I adored both, but it took a long long time to gain Mitchell's approval. In retrospect, I can't say I blame him. I miss him daily!

From that post, one comment came back to me - a very casual friend, who was doing his own pseudo-stalking. He said something we were both thinking - and I'm guessing a lot of people who are posting and finding each other after years are doing the same - {paraphrase} "yes, I'm still alive". 

From that era, if it wasn't potential od'ing or prison time, it was AIDS. There is a lot of statistical evidence present to assume we might not still be roaming this planet. Oh - and since many of us are now in AARP land, natural causes cannot be ruled out anymore.

My melancholy, I think, set in the same way I had it when living in that town, participating in that life.

I had great friends, but the friends of friends, never warmed up to me, nor I to them, so my circle never expanded. I think, some might have recognized me by site, but certainly not by name. Me, being me, I knew who they all were. The odd thing is: I felt left out of groups I didn't want to be in the first place. I'm sure there's a psychological term for that.

Still - those feelings arose while going through all these posted images.

There are some Bruce D posts with all his 'friends' who were all shirtless, tanned and handsome. I was never going to be in that group or get an invite. I couldn't even get an acknowledgement from him when in P-town in 1990. Sometimes you're just not worthy.

I did throw up a test balloon on this group. I posted one of my own pics, the few I had, from a party I had. Two - count em - people liked it. I laughed to myself. Others are racking up dozens and hundreds of likes. I confirmed my absence for the last 25 years didn't really make a mark on anyone.

Honestly, I'm not moping - I totally get these were and are my own insecurities. I just kind of thought I was beyond those - and I am mostly. It was just a weird flashback.

I did reply to one post - a still dear friend - who truly was about the history, and asked to remember those who are no longer with us. While Craig didn't mention AIDS, that's really what it was. It was somber, sobering and endearing.

This also sent me down a rabbit hole for a friend of mine, Stuart, who died in 1995.

I would take him to the hospital and stay with him. I would call his brother collect via a hospital pay phone (no cell phones yet!), to update on progress. Stuart's parents came in the middle of the night - literally - and took him home, where he died. I never saw him or talked to him after they showed up.

So the hole of rabbits of which I speak, has been trying to identify his death notice and place of internment. I know, should it exist at all, it is here in Cleveland. But I think their 'shame' won't have me finding a record anywhere. I haven't located his brother either, just to drop a note. For me getting to think about and process that, I do thank this group.

We will see how long I stick with this Facebook group. It will most likely run in the background. Perhaps my perspective will change, perhaps not.  If we're being honest about FB, some posts are for recognition. I'm not going to get that here - outside of my friend's of 30+ years. And that's ok.

Maybe I'll be a voyeur, or maybe not.

Another week; another set of doggie and kitty pics.  Not all doggies are mine.

Daycare can really take it out of a guy

Double trouble. 

This guy was SO sweet. He wouldn't let me let him go. 
Got to see Sigge, when I picked up Shep. He's such a love bug. 

His excitement to leave daycare has not waned. 

I love Sophie all the time. But she looks so good on this rug. 

Yes. He's ferocious

I Know Him


The tangled web you weave. Webs, I suppose.

My lord, now we are onto illegally spying on our own ambassadors - and the whole impeachment thing, which is just going to go nowhere.

It's this Lev Parnas thing that is just killing me. Not necessarily in a bad way.

First off - I am ah-mahzed that a man under conviction would go on any talk show, let alone Rachel Maddow. Of course, the barrage of, "I don't know him" statements that came out from just about anyone.

People. It is the digital age.

It seems there isn't a BLOTUS family member this guy didn't get pics with - other than Ivana (no k) and Tiff. It's hard to believe they were a series coincidences that everyone below just happened to get a pic with a person they don't know.

At the very very least - Secret Service is NOT doing their job.

Baking with Blobby

You know how I say "I'm not a baker", and then I do something awesome like make great cookies?

Then I try to make homemade rolls (for the very first time, I might add) and I get to go back and say something exactly like, "I am NOT a baker".

I'm 91% I followed the directions to a T., but.....I dunno.

I won't go as far as to say they were like Ellie Mae Clampett's biscuits, but I'm not about to say they were good either.

I would say they are 'edible', but only because I ate one.


1½ cups warm water
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. yeast
3½ cups flour
1 tsp Salt
1 Egg
1 tablespoon milk
4 oz Asiago Cheese, shredded


Preheat oven to 400 degree and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Mix warm water, sugar and yeast together. Let that sit for 5 minutes.

Add flour and salt to the water, sugar, and yeast.

Mix this until smooth and let it raise for 10 minutes. I used my stand mixer with the dough hook and it was so easy and worked great!

Divide the dough into 12 sections.

Roll each section into a ball and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Let rest for 10 minutes. Whisk the egg and the milk in a small bowl.Brush on the top of each roll with the egg wash.

Sprinkle generously with asiago cheese.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

They looked nice. Maybe you need to serve them right from the oven. Honestly, I never tasted any cheese at all. My sister either liked them or was lying through her teeth, but I know what I tasted (or didn't) and 710, I believe was honest with me - and
