Cue Queen! Another one bites the dust.


Is this getting weird, or are we all just paying more attention right now?

RIP-Steve McNair

Ex-NFL QB McNair found shot to death in condo

Former NFL quarterback Steve McNair was found shot to death Saturday, multiple media outlets reported.

A woman was also found shot to death with McNair in a Nashville condominium in an apparent double homicide.

A public information officer with the Nashville police, Don Aaron, confirmed the death.

McNair played 11 seasons in the NFL with the Tennessee Titans franchise and then spent two seasons with the Baltimore Ravens.

He was a three-time Pro Bowler and was the Co-AP NFL MVP in 2003.

High as a flag on the 4th of July

If you'll excuse an expression I use....I'm in love with a wonderful guy. (And he's got a Kindle.)


So yesterday I had to go to Cliff's Hardware to buy a new Toilet Seat and I had the odd experience of being asked the following question: Round or Elongated. Considering how much time I spend on the item in question, I honestly had no idea. Luckily, I guess right. (Elongated FTW!)


5-K this morning. Ivan came and picked me up, which was nice. We got to the park way early---my fault because I got the time wrong, but it was. We hung out and met some fun people. It was very nice and laid back run, as you'd imagine for a run that was a fundraiser for "Law Enforcement Against Prohibition."

The route was a nice run down JFK Boulevard and around Stowe Lake in Golden Gate Park. Cool weather. Lots of PUUPPPPPPEEEES. I did it in just under 45 minutes. As long as I can still average a 15 minute mile between walking and running, I'm pretty happy. My Ipod shuffle let me down toward the end, as I got stuck walking with Casey Jones by the Grateful Dead (also very appropriate) but it went on a long time before the song changed and I could start sprinting for the finish line.

The T-shirt was totally awesome, and there was Double Rainbow Ice Cream.


Tomorrow I'm going to see Lowell at the Mint. I LOVE LOWELL. He lives back east with his b.f. Herman and I don't get to see him very much, but we always have fun together with 60's pop and obscure showtunes and I made a call to my friend Rich, who is a major Gay Male Crush of mine and who I absolutey adore, and Peggy, my girl-crush will be there too. It's going to be awesome and I am mucho pysched.


Come Monday, it'll be all right, Come Monday....

I'll have to start another sugar/caffeine detox and haul my ass back to the gym, in this case 24 Hour Fitness.

And I have to speculate
That God himself did make us
Into corresponding shapes
Like puzzle pieces from the clay

Such Great Heights-The Dresden Dolls
