I stole this from Cookie; sue me.

My blog edition of the list of "Ten Things I Just Don't Get":

1 - Donald Dump

2 - Donald Dump's evil spawn

3 - the GOPricks

4 - organized religion

5 -  spam (the food product and the e-mails)

6 - the male of the human species

7 - vegetables

8 - hatred

So my challenge to the other bloggers are to come up with your own lists and post them on your own blog.

So I Won Another Award (with an update)

Somebody thinks I am worthy.

Anyway, here is the award:



But, like anything worthwhile, it comes with a set of rules (dammit). 

Rule 1. Put the award/logo image on your blog. 

Rule 2. List the rules. 

Rule 3. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.  Thanks to Toni at http://musingsfrommara.blogspot.com 

Rule 4. Also mention the creator of the award and provide a link.  The Mystery Blogger award was created by Okoto Enigma. 

Rule 5. Tell your readers three things about yourself. (1) born & bred in philly and damn proud of it, (2) 28 year cancer survivor, (3) knitter. 

Rule 6. Nominate other bloggers (in no particular order; I don't play favorites):

Dr. Spo
Dave
Fearsome Beard
R.J. (San Diego)
Mitchell 

Rule 7. Nominate those people (this rule is stupid; we already did that in Rule 6). 

Rule 8. Ask your nominees any five questions of your choice, plus one weird or funny question.

1.  What deceased person would you like to meet and why?

2.  Truth or Dare?

3.  What is your creative talent?

4.  Clothing - necessary or useless?

5.  What is the first name of your BFF?

Weird/funny question - what is your fave tune that ALWAYS makes you smile? 

Rule 9. Share a link to my blog's best post.

UPDATE: Toni "reminded" me that I forgot to answer her questions.  So here goes:

1)  What made you decide to start blogging? - I was dared into it by several friends.

2) Do you have any schedule for posting or is it spontaneous? - My Saturday Night Protest Party is my only scheduled scribble; otherwise, it's when the mood strikes me.

3) Have you ever been in a situation that seemed bad but ended up leading to something positive? - So many shitty jobs have always led to something better; I have been in my current position 14 years come October.

4) Ever given up on reading a book but then gone back to it later? - Only one: Gilda Radner's "It's Always Something".  I was given that book when I was fighting my own cancer battle.  It took me 3 tries to go from cover to cover 2 years past my diagnosis.

 
5) Name one main goal that you want to achieve in the next year. - New wills, living wills, advance directives completed and signed.  We ain't getting any younger!

 
Funny/weird question: What would be your current protagonist's go-to song in karaoke? If you're not working on a book at the moment, name a song for your favourite book character. - Eleanor Roosevelt would sing "I Won't Back Down" (and she didn't).

So the Penguin Got Me Thinking...

...no, not THIS Penguin...


...but THIS Penguin!

He discussed meeting bloggers IRL and whom he would like to meet next.

So I gots to thinking (and my head hurts).

I began my blogging adventures by reading knitting blogs and leaving comments; I have met several famous knitters this way.  This was before the days of Ravelry (knit/crochet social website).

From there, I somehow drifted into reading gay male (non-knitter) blogs (I know several gay male knitters) and leaving comments.  Then several of those non-knitter guys hounded me into starting a blog of my own (August 4, 2012).  So here I am.

So far, I have met the following friends (in no particular order, I don't play favorites):

spo
penguin
sassybear
fearsome beard
mistress maddie
mark (in DE)

I REALLY wanna meet these friends 
(again, no particular order, I don't play favorites):

dave
bob
debra
squire john gray
mitchell
mark (in PHX)
blobby
anne
RJ (denver)
RJ (san diego)
lon
jon (dolores delargo towers)
JP (& guido & his big hose)
professor chaos
the noble ape
cookie
raybeard
jon (otto's son)
jimmy
the dogs' mother
biki
jeremy
walt in france

Hmmm, my "to meet" list is bigger.  Better get my fat ass moving!

Then there are three blogger friends I have met that are now deceased: the cajun, david, jay.

Some blogger friends I have met no longer blog, like cubby and kelly.  But I loves them just the same.

And what about the toxic bloggers I met and dropped like dynamite?  The hell with them; no publicity for false lying evil deceitful creatures!

Since today is Mother's Day, the cats and I have taken the day off.  This is what I received for Mother's Day.


Mike is/was my fave Monkee; this autobio comes with a companion music cd.


Miss Oreo has completely recovered from her health ordeal.


Miss Nyla doesn't care.


Neither does Miss Gigi.


Been knitting too.  Finished in time for Pride Month!  Janey was the first to see this beauty in person.


Knit this for my personal trainer at the gym.  She left to move north with her future spouse and for a better job.


In progress for myself - the back of a cardigan sweater.


Also in progress for myself - a lacy shawl; the yarn comes from Ireland.

Also go to www.barackobama.com and ofa.us.  I just did; GET INVOLVED!

As Mistress Maddie says, all politics is local.  The above guide will emphasize that.  So I have started by contacting my state and federal reps/senators.  I praised my federal rep for choosing to NOT participate on 1/20/17.  I have also volunteered my services with my local democratic party.

My late uncle protested against the Vietnam War.  If he could protest, so can I.  AND SO CAN YOU!  WHO'S WITH ME?
