Neither Snow, nor…

February 10, 2010

a vacant mind, etc, etc, shall keep me from writing a blog. Brian, please…!

If you’re reading this, then there’s a good chance I’m outside cleaning snow and my delay publish button worked.  And if you’re not reading this, then chances are good that I’m outside cleaning snow. And here I am, checking and sure enough, my delay publish button does work, but I’m also not outside cleaning snow. There really isn’t all that much to have to worry about just yet.  There really isn’t much to talk about either, other than the weather and since a lot of you who read this are experiencing the same thing, there’s no sense in jawing on and on about it.

I really needed something here to attach the nutty newts’ shenanigans from last night and you can get to them, as always at the end of this blog.

Do you remember my mention not that long ago about the Wizard Of Oz and how we were looking into something that there might be pictures of sometime down the road? Well, that’s all coming together nicely. Just thought I’d tell you that.

Yesterday, Haisong Jiang, the security breach guy, plead not guilty to the defiant trespass suit, brought against him when he single-handedly snarled air traffic for over 6 hours because he wanted to give his girlfriend one last kiss good-bye before she boarded her plane. Along with his not guilty plea, his attorney, Washington, DC-based Eric Bruce assured the court Jiang is “eager, ready and willing and able to make amends” through community service. The judge, Richard E.A. Nunes adjourned the case until March 9 at Bruce’s urging so he has time to review the video and documents related to the case. Really? And still, defiant trespass, a petty disorderly offense, carries a fine of up to $500. I still say let the people who were inconvenienced decide his fate.

It’s February and I’ve been looking on a daily basis on the follow up to the naked Eric Williamson coffee caper. But I’m on the case, rest assured.

And here you go, yet another doggie video. I have to give credit where credit is due. I saw this yesterday on the Radio Chick show on It’s a dog, dreaming, with a comical end.


Here Comes The Bride

January 29, 2010

Today is a happy day indeed. Ariel’s niece, (and mine, too, in a manner of speaking; I’ve known her 22 of her 24 years–man that makes me feel old) is getting married. The ceremony is scheduled for one in the afternoon and I’ve been working seemingly around the clock to clear this afternoon and it looks like I’ll be ready to go with time to spare. I have just over three hours to finish out my week. So, that’s the big news of the weekend. For those of you who won’t be there, don’t fret, you have a choice of celebrations today. It’s National Puzzle Day and National Cornchip Day. Or National “Fit Pieces of Cornchips Into a Puzzle” Day. You decide.

I’ve got some free time this weekend because earlier this week, over my morning coffee before I got started working, I filled out my 2010 wall calendar and not a moment too soon otherwise I might have missed recycling day. So I don’t know what to do with myself. One thing, I’ll be playing plumber; the replacement parts for my toilet came in yesterday so I’ll be attempting to work on that. And I will be prepping the next McGinty for Monday and tomorrow is our weekly weigh-in. And I’m still trying to remember what that one effect high blood pressure has, but it keeps going out of my head.

Newark Airport security breach guy, Haison Jiang is scheduled for a February 9 arraignment on a misdemeanor trespassing charge. He faces either a $500 fine or 30 days in jail. I still say all the people he inconvenienced should let him have it.

What can I leave you with to contemplate over the weekend? How’s this: A story about Jessica and Laura. Jessica is pregnant and is due to give birth to a baby boy next month. That’s not so out of the ordinary. But what if Jessica and Laura both had sexual reassignment surgery and now live their lives as transgendered couple Scott and Thomas Moore; Jessica and Laura respectively. They’ve been together since 2007 when they met at a support group for transgendered men. In 1999, Thomas began taking testosterone and in 2004 had his 44GG breasts removed and his “snails and whales and puppy dog tail” is made from the flesh of his thigh. He also has two children of his own from a prior relationship with a female who later passed away. So, was he a lesbian at one point? I’m confused on that point. But Scott, whose birth certificate still lists him as a female, also still has female reproductive parts and he became pregnant by a donor.

Have a great weekend.

We Interrupt This Blog

January 11, 2010

First of all, the Newark Airport security breacher, Haisong Jiang from Piscataway, NJ, a doctoral student at Rutgers University, was arrested Friday night and charged with defiant trespassing, for ducking under the security cordon to accompany his girlfriend to her flight. The defiant trespassing charge stems from when Jiang, after being asked by the security guard (as seen in the video) to move away from the secure area, (according to the article I read) returned there after the guard left his post. So, there, mystery solved. Right now it looks like Jiang will receive a “slap on the wrist” and a $500 fine. I think every one of the inconvenienced passengers that had to be rescreened during the 6 hour delay should have a whack at his wrist!

I think my cold is finally better. It’s still hanging on, I’m still all stuffed up, but I don’t feel a groggy and dragged out as I was feeling for the better part of last week.

This past weekend I got another review for “Mightier Than The Pen”.  It comes from a woman my father loaned his copy to who is in his Goldwing group. You can see it on the “reviews” page  under “The Novel” tab on my website. Also, for those of you new to my blog, the first chapter is also available in  “A Peek Inside” under the same tab.

Originally today was to be the start of the next chapter in the McGinty Chronicles, but time got away from me and I didn’t realize that tomorrow is the start of American Idol and I’m happy to report, taking the seat of the late Commander, who helmed the position of persnickety purveyor for two seasons, is  a brand new, 2-man team brought in to report on the shenanigans. They feel they’re qualified to take over such a momentous task.  You can meet them by clicking on their link button at the end of today’s blog.

Todays’a big day in NJ. Not only is the State House going to vote on in-state tuition fees for illegal aliens, but that seat belts must be worm by everyone in your car. And they’re hoping to pass a bill that would enforce the driver of a car to stop before hitting a pedestrian in a cross walk, as that is their “safety domain”, but also when encountering an errant jaywalker, the driver must also stop. But to be fair, the law will also state that a pedestrian can’t run into traffic. I would almost think that’s just common sense, but I guess not because we actually need a law against it. Hmm.

So, without fail, McGinty will start up again next week. I just didn’t want to give you so much to deal with on a Monday. In the meantime, let me introduce you to the new American Idol team. And spread the word, especially if anyone you tell is a literary agent or publisher or someone who knows one.
