Another Fine Fall Day

It is just glorious out today. Caught these leaves in the trees low enough to miss the frosts and yet dazzling in the sunshine.

Update: Just noticed I also took home a shoe embed of dog crap. Dammit. I am gonna follow one of these dogwalking slobs and pick up and smear their "left-behinds" on their front door windows. Assholes!

Senate Sits Picking Their Noses on DADT

Via AmericaBlog

The Senate hearing on "Dont Ask, Dont Tell" repeal just got postponed indefinitely. This, just days after a House committee delayed the mark up of ENDA. But the Democrats promised that ENDA would be passed this year - 40 days left! - and DADT repealed next spring. Don't hold your breath.

Funny, My donations to Democratic National Committee have been postponed as well.

The GayTM is down.

Sign the pledge!

Something Funny

Getting intense here. It wants me to get rid of a couch. I don't want to get rid of the couch. It's one that Kerry reupholstered. He claims it has bugs. None found except one dead one six months ago. Probably from it's days in storage. It's rent is cheaper because my logic was I had a lot of stuff. If it want's to pop for storage fees that's OK with me. Otherwise it stays.

Anyway, this is funny, via Americablog:

Gunga Dean's Clean

Here's my idea of clean:

In public amongst my friends, no less, he still continues to slip in snide remarks if I dare mention I exercised my culinary talents: "Did ya clean the kitchen, after?"

Don't Fuck with Gunga Dean!

The Roommate's Idea of Clean

About 3 or 4 weeks ago the roommate sent me a blistering epistle to my work email.

I had left a pot in the rack or the sink or something and he went all postal on me demanding a meeting, stating that to consider the kitchen clean, the counters should be cleared and wiped, pot's washed and put away and ready for the next guy blah blah blah...

For all intents and purposes I have stopped using the kitchen when he is home. In fact, I retreat to my room until he heads off to work. Thank God he works mostly nights.

Cold war ensues.

Well anyway, his idea of wiped is to rearrange the grease. Here's how I found the stove today.

1st Shot with New Camera

Me, Late Last Night...

"Is this damn thing on?"

But it is the way I see things, post-Jaeger.

Fall Beach Walk Today

Spent some quality (read sober) time on Sunday with the New Camera's manual .
"Ahh! Much Better!"

Minimal editing. Wonderful Farwell pier in Fall. Probably the last perfect day we will have here in Chicago.
