I had a great weekend... found a subway token in the washer...

Yay! Free ride to work. Except that I can't be sure it didn't come from the pockets of the clothes I was laundering.

Is my glass half full, half empty, or destined to be the glass at a Jewish wedding ceremony? I dunno...

I got stood up for a second time by The Beautiful Boy. We were supposed to see a movie on Saturday. I think he must have wound up in an emergency room somewhere, without access to a telephone. Perhaps he was abducted by aliens. All I know is that I was left to fend for myself on Saturday, which meant that I channelled all of my waiting-by-the-phone angst into cleaning.

(He called me out of the blue a week ago, apologizing for bailing on our second date. He offered up a pretty good explanation, and said he'd really like to see me again. He wanted us to get to know each other better, and I agreed to that. He suggested a movie.)

Invertebrates learn faster than I do. Seriously.

I literally laughed my ass off watching Sunday's episode of American Dad. In Lincoln Lover, Stan learns yet another life lesson: this one about the gays. He joins the Log Cabin Republicans. Some of the high points:

- the Langley LCR chapter throws an impromptu party featuring a new cocktail. The drink inspires Roger to ask, "what's in it, and how can I replace all of my blood with it?"

- during the party, a musical number breaks out (as it so often does with us gays). A sample lyric: "we like packing fudge... and heat!" (visual: a box of fudge, with a gun laid on top)

- it's revealed that Stan's gay neighbours drive Saabs--one with a "PITCHER" vanity plate; the other with "CATCHER"

Sorry about the being stood up, people are flakes. Now I want to check out that show.

That guy is a jerk. I hate size queens too. I had fun spending sunday night together - you'll have to remind me to return those Paula Poundstone DVD's that you left here...I'm not sure that they are my kind of funny.

Natasha said...

Don't give him another chance. He's not worth it.

Salem said...

You've figured it out now, right?
Don't let him do that to you.

Jason said...

So what will you be changing your Saab's license plate to?

Steven said...

That episode was one of the most vile and insipid ones I have ever seen... and I watched it twice.

How can you spot a gay (according to AD)?

He works out, wears tight clothes and flip flops, has a fruity drink in his hand, has a love of musical theatre, and checks for dirt under his nails like this (stretches arm out and flicks hand upwards).

Timmy said...

Sorry about Saturday!

I love American Dad!

Pablo said...

Yeah. That sucks. If he calls again, become suddenly too busy for him and indifferent.

Miss Thistle said...

That guy's not worth a second more of your thoughts.

I've never seen American Dad, but I do enjoy Family Guy.

New Simpsons Hallowe'en last night finally!

Mitzzee said...

your judgemental aunt said...

You could have met a hockey team on Satty night if you had come to Woody's with me.

madamerouge said...

^ thanks for the CALL, bizzatch!

what, am I clairvoyant all of a sudden?

liquid said...

Make another date with him - offer to take him somewhere really extraordinary. And then don't show up.

Natasha said...

I like Liquid's idea. You should do that, Mloyd. Seriously.

Timmy said...

go with what liquid said, great idea!

Anonymous said...

Mnoyd, we get nothing.

your judgemental aunt said...

Just call him up and tell him you're buying something for me. Then buy me something extravagant. That will show him.

Paul said...

Ignore the loser - he works in advertising so I can attest that makes him a bad person!

St. Dickeybird said...

I'm 4th-ing Liquid's idea.
Better yet, post the time/ location, so we can all watch his reaction as you stand him up.

toobusyliving said...

Yeah! Let's all stand the Size Queen up!

Oh, BTW...whose comments are you deleting? Games.

madamerouge said...

I'm not deleting any comments today--so far.

I wanted to get plates that read SNAAB, but they were already taken.

I'm going to put this all behind me, and in the extremely unlikely event that I hear from him again, I'm going to go with Pablo's (and Paul's) advice.

(My inner bitch wants to take Liquid's approach, but--to quote Tori Amos--"I believe in peace, bitch!")

(with bitch=the boy)

Butchieboy said...

Tell him to fuck off and hang up the phone.

car@ said...

roflol Butchie!
What a fucking asshole! sorry madame, pple should not have the right to do that to others. Just set in your cell: "that fucker" so when he calls in, you KNOW YOU WON'T pic up the phone. Ignorance is your best weappon! kisses!

Adorable Girlfriend said...

YJA is right -- you should have gone hockey boy fishin'.

your judgemental aunt said...

LOL at Cara! I'm so changing Mme Rouge's number to that on my phone. Wait I'll never see it though 'cause she never calls.
