What We Missed

ColinWe are missing the fundamental disconnect in the Colin Kaeperinick story; that he even considers himself black & consequently set aside, despite being a 1% elite, is a terrible condemnation of the racial divide in America.
Google a picture of Ms. Russo who gave him up for adoption, she’s about as white a white woman as one could find. Then google the Kaepernicks a couple central casting sends over when the scene calls for a Wisconsin couple. We are still carrying that one drop tar baby prejudice deep in our psych and so is he. A few years ago I asked why Halle Berry & Lenny Kravitz are considered black and my brother set me straight- because they get followed around in department stores.

I’m intrigued that the folks, I know, that are rabidly 2A can’t support Colin’s 1A statement.

I’m a 12 yr old at heart.
59 years old and I see this picture on the sidewall of an out of business store on 7th Ave. out of the corner of my eye.

And it registers.

And I back up and take the photo.
And I post it.
And I snicker.

I just divorced my wife. What should I do?

  • Drink milk directly from the carton.
  • Buy a case of toilet paper and not worry about that for 2 years.
  • Buy a crock pot and learn to use it.
  • Open the medicine chest and stare in amazement at the open shelves.
  • Climb into the shower and luxuriate in how uncluttered it is.
  • Know how sharp the blade in your razor is going to be.
  • Clean fire arms at the kitchen table.
  • Store ammunition in the dining room buffet.
  • Find your clothes in the closet.
  • Store your bicycle in the living room.
  • Control the TV remote- traditionally you should also buy an oversized TV.
  • Sleep with the number of blankets that works for you.
  • Don’t eat Thanksgiving with your AHole in-laws.
  • Make a list of what you want in a relationship- you should already have the “what I won’t put up with” list complete.
  • Date or don’t date.

Look forward to when you are not doing about 1/2 of the items above- because you’re living with someone again.

Creepy Old Guy- update

Old Guy Tricks

I notice today, my ability to hear is inversely proportionate to the expanse of the cashier‘s cleavage. I guess I’m not looking at her lips. And I’m not turning my good ear entirely her way. Now that I’ve noticed this; I’ll have to check if I try for leans forward & repeats. I had no problem with the guy at the Bodega this morning. The brown-skinned cashier at the bank with the cafe au lait rolling praries and the  red-head with freckled bonny braes at the coffee bar had to holler to make themselves understood.
6/29 Update. I’m definitely a COG… Dash into Kohls last night while talking with a friend via the phone bud in my good ear. The cashier is a lovely girl, but she is little Miss 5×5 in a high neck blouse and I have no problem whatsoever understanding her and the woman on the other end of the phone remarks “guess she wasn’t much of a looker” .
I check my sex appeal by shooting myself in the foot- an inane comment is the litmus test.
If she chuckles, I’m a harmless old guy.
If she shrinks back, I’m just weird, but I might have been interesting.
I’m like a dog chasing a bus, don’t really want to catch it so this toe in the water works.
I scout what the people, on the train, are reading.
Until I saw the SNL Mother’s Day skit, I thought there was a female surge in Civil War lit. Shades of Gray indeed, one woman’s Victorian Romantic fantasy is gel shot picnics, another’s is a rattan spanking.

OR with my luck………..

Watching Her Walk in Her Sexual Power seems to suggest that a woman showing off her stuff is empowering if not an actual victory…

But if Nathan Graziano notices a woman from Yoga Pants Nation strutting her stuff he’s a pervert, or maybe just confused.

What was so interesting is the number of volunteers waiting for the gates to open, the lack of supervision and the speed with which this was completed.

North Florida Noir

In Mobile Updates on November 22, 2011 at 6:21 pm

The Big Goodbye” by Michael Lister- A Soldier Mystery. A classic noir formula novel.
A no name hero whose missing arm is a minimal hindrance compared to his hang ups and insecurities.
A married man eating damsel in distress.
A spunky unappreciated Gal Friday and a laconic dangerous mentor form just one of Soldier’s tangled triangles.
Liquored up lascivious socialites, Mann Act violators, two mysterious shrinks and a growing body count.
Guys, Gals, Guns & Gonorrhea (or maybe syphilis). “Why is politics so dirty? Because of the people it attracts. “.
A good story in an incredibly well presented package. Is the proper word bibliophile?
Beautifully typeset and illustrated- photos and sketches. A hard cover in a trade paperback format w/ a very pleasing ecru? paper. I suspect that Lister self-published this. By Pulpwood Press and there are ads from Florida businesses on the end pages.

She is not a SEXY little White Girl So THERE IS NO NEED TO PANIC- but Shelbi is Missing

In Be a Guy, Did You See This?, Fleshed Out Tweets, Mobile Updates, Pictures on September 25, 2011 at 9:40 am

No she wasn’t on some exotic vacation, no she’s not some cutesy white girl-
turns out there is a name for this “Missing white woman syndrome” as opposed to the inactivity of surrounding missing black girls. 
Hell she may not even be a cheer leader or a beauty pageant finalist….
The odds of you seeing this story on Fox or CNN are minimal…
The odds that she needs some help are overwhelming. The hell her people must be going through is unimaginable. I don’t know her, I do know a shirt-tale relative of hers who is good people by any accounting.
This is the real deal- check the national website http://www.missingkids.com/missingkids/servlet/PublicHomeServlet?LanguageCountry=en_US&

Google Natalee Holloway and you’ll see almost 2 million mentions now pull the name of some brown kid off the site above and  see how many hits you get.

Don’t really know, guns don’t make me especially nervous, Arizona has the easiest carry laws in the US and nobody stepped up while Representative Gabriell Giffords was getting shot.
