I should probably blog more…

…if for no other reason than that I’ve now got the domain name paid for through December 2014.

So I will…

I have a movie quote running through my mind here…

So, about that whole Ines Sainz being catcalled by Jets players thing…

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, addressing the alleged harassment of a female TV reporter Saturday at practice, told Monday that the team will begin interviewing players as part of its investigation with the league office.


The NFL is looking into a complaint made by the Association for Women in Sports Media against the Jets after Sainz [of Mexico's TV Azteca] reportedly was subjected to footballs being thrown in her direction at practice and, later, players' catcalls inside the locker room.

I’m not going to comment on this… instead, I’ll let Hyman Roth comment for me.

Video of the day: Bruiser fights with the “cone of shame”

We had to get a cone of shame for Bruiser because he’d managed to mess up his feet somehow and he was licking the heck out of them and making them just that much worse.

While I was at work, my wonderful girlfriend shot this video of him trying to escape from it to no avail:

Bruiser trying to remove the cone of shame
The good news? Bruiser’s feet are already looking better than they were.

It’s funny how things work sometimes

I’ve always heard that everything happens for a reason, but I wasn’t sure if I always believed it.

As most of y’all probably know, I up and moved to Phoenix about five months back.

Well, this story begins long before that.

If it wasn’t for a lightning strike that hit the pole outside our house in Beaumont and sent everything haywire.

It, of course, happened on a Friday so we were stuck with dealing with most everything being wonky all weekend. Which sucked, but Twitter’s @jpenaz sent me a direct message that said to text her if I got bored or miserable or whatever. So I did…

And, from that, a friendship grew and turned into a relationship that grew into me coming out just after Christmas. Which was a great trip that convinced me just how amazing a woman Jennifer is.

That led to my coming back in April, which led to my staying here and getting my job with SUPPORTCO, which I enjoy most of the time.

Last month I got myself back to Texas to get my stuff, and I went to see my eye doctor while I was there… finding out that I had a pretty big problem going on with them, so they referred me to a doctor in the Phoenix area to go to. I called and got an appointment scheduled with him the next week.

I met the new doctor the next week and I’m now convinced that I’m way better off going to see him than seeing the old doctor I was seeing in Houston. I’ve got nothing but confidence in Dr. Rabinowitz, who not only explained the situation to me in way more detail than my previous doctor, but made me feel pretty good about it. He simply told it to me like it is.

For now, medicine’s holding my condition in check, but I’ll almost surely need to have surgery done for it someday and I can honestly say that I’ve got nothing but a ton of faith in the doctors I’m seeing now… something I couldn’t say before.

Everything happens for a reason. I believe that now.

Yea, I know, I know…

It’s been forever since I’ve blogged anything.

Rest assured, though, that I’ve got a three-day weekend coming up and I’ve got a post or two in mind for that time.
