So I was chatting online with La Luna Negra at about 1:00AM early Thursday morn when we had a pretty good-sized 4.5 temblor here. A bit unnerving I must say, and hopefully not a foreshadowing of a larger quake to come, although it's to be expected that sooner or later, the ground will move here in California regardless.
Something quite odd and uncomfortable happened at work Wednesday. I like my co-worker Lacy a lot. She's very sharp and witty; reminds me very much of Kathy Najimy in looks ya know? Turns out her husband showed up at our office and as she introduced him to me and I shook his hand, I was immediately not only struck by his good looks, but also by his shy and questionable demeanor. Ya see kids, my "gaydar" went off! And I don't wanna be accused of projecting my orientation on other dudes who are straight or married, but GOOD LORD MAN this guy was oozing a bit too much homo for comfort. It was kind of creepy and I almost felt bad. I never thought Lacy would've found such a damn hot husband! Even my other co-worker Joey who is straight was shocked and remarked, "Wow, he's a good-looking tall fellow, I expected her to be married to a shorter more plain-looking man."
What if Lacy doesn't know that her George Clooney/Taylor Hicks hybrid husband might like the boys too? What if their 15-year seemingly solid marriage with two children is but a farce? He was rather effeminate mind you, but lots of straight dudes are girly right? I shouldn't jump to stupid conclusions I suppose, but the vibes this one sent to me were rather strong and very disconcerting. I do wish the best for Lacy regardless. Here's hoping my suspicions are wrong and that she doesn't find him some day sucking another dude's face/pipe like poor Alma Del Mar when she almost had a stroke watching Ennis liplocked with Jack Twist as he slammed him against the wall. YEESHA!
For those of you in LA, you know who Hal Fishman was. He was a fixture on our local television news channel 5 here since the days of Moses walking the Earth it seemed. Well, poor Hal fell ill about a week ago, and it turns out he had advanced cancer and died earlier this week. Ya know, it sucks that as I get older a lot of the people I grew up with are gonna slowly start leaving to their next life. And so it goes. R.I.P. Hal. He was certainly loved by many here, as the condolences that flooded the KTLA website prove.
The love and condolences will also flood this blog I'm sure, when I finally die in the year 3185.
