Going Down In Flames VII

Todays’ sordid tale concerns another law maker who has dug his own grave. Here’s the story of Richard Curtis:

Police report sheds new light on Curtis encounter

Tuesday, October 30, 2007
By JEFFREY MIZE, Columbian Staff Writer

State Rep. Richard Curtis, R-La Center, admitted to having sex with a man he met at an adult video store in Spokane last week, according to a police report released Tuesday afternoon.

The police report offers a damning and far different version of events from the brief account Curtis gave to The Columbian Monday, one that seems likely to threaten Curtis’ political future.

The report is filled with graphic details of an encounter that began at a porn store on a Spokane Valley strip and concluded miles away in Curtis’ room at the city’s poshest hotel.

The police report contains an account of how Curtis allegedly donned women’s clothing, red stockings and a black sequined lingerie top before engaging in a sex act at the store. He continued to wear them throughout the night under his clothing.

I see nothing wrong if you enjoy dressing up in women’s clothing. And I don’t think there’s anything wrong with offering money to have sex with someone…hell…the government could make a mint from taxes by legalizing prostitution. But if you are going to go into politics and continue to do this, you are going to find yourself in a sticky situation sooner or later. His downfall was some guy trying to blackmail him.

Now where did I put those marshmallows from the last fire?

Just read Joe. My. God’s blog post about it…some great stuff on the story here.

Evil Wal-Mart Amending Its Ways?

Is Adam Werbach of the Sierra Club helping to turn around the evil ways of Wal-Mart? Quite possibly.

We were at our local Wal-Mart and when we took our receipt the Hubby noticed that it was printed on both sides. This basically could cut receipt paper usage by almost half. Let’s hope we see more things like this happening, and maybe that yellow smiley face will have something to really smile about.

Good Riddance

We had a pretty good weekend. We saw “The Wedding Singer” at the Bob Carr Theater. Not a classic show, but having grown up in the ’80’s it was enjoyable. Friday I had off and did school work but also finally got to spent some time playing my PS3. Saturday we helped paint the community front gate int he morning. The rain held off long enough for us to get the work done. Errands were then run including shopping and then delivering a new fridge for the hubby’s sister. We then got home, rested a bit, then went to a Halloween party. The interesting bit was the old lesbian who was drunk and was getting obnoxious with a little straight boy at the party. Sunday we cleared a big chunk of the DVR and then had a bowling birthday party for a good friend in the evening.

But the best part was learning from the Hubby’s sister that his niece broke up with her slug of a boyfriend! Woohoo! Now she can move on with her life.

And this Daylight Savings time change is just annoying. I woke up an hour late this morning because my bedside clock decided to fall back an hour…how was it supposed to know the government changed the days on it?

Sadly, no Halloween for me this Wednesday. I have class that night, but also with this storm off the coast we might actually get rained out this Wednesday, too.

The Internet Is For Porn

And truer words have not been spoken.

I am taking a half day today at work and I have Friday off. I decided to see if the muse took a hold of me and delivered a small blurb for today’s blog since my mind is thinking of getting the heck out of Dodge in just a few minutes.

When I go to my blog, the first thing I check are the stats. Well, I see this huge spike in viewings for yesterday. I scroll down to those rankings and suddenly realized why: take a look at the picture below. (Click to enlarge it)

Ranking

The only posts that have come near that are the Christy McNichol post and the Corporal Punishment in Japan post, both which give me between 2-5 hits a day, despite they are older posts.

Who knew there were so many pervs out on the internet plugging the word “anal” into their search engines?

Everyone have a great weekend!

‘A’ Is For Anal

Tell me what you see in this picture (click on it to see the full picture). It was taken by me in Pallermo, Spain and is some sort of clothing line. Hey, when in Spain, do as the logo tells you to.

A Is For…

Swing Of The Pendulum

With all the social networking sites around, you knew someone would have to create an anti-social networking site:

Enemybook

It’s pretty tongue-in-cheek…and you have to have a Facebook account to participate.

He Loved Waving His Magic Wand

It seems J.K. Rowling is letting the world know some old fart wizard from her book series was gay.

WTF? If it was so important a plot point then why not put it in your book? I just see this as a way for Rowling to create further “interest” for her book series. It just appears to me as a publicity stunt.

I still haven’t read the books.

I totally vegged this weekend. It was rainy Saturday morning, and then cloudy all weekend, so the heat wasn’t too bad. I did go see Nightmare Before Christmas in 3D. The only movie I’ve seen more than this one in a theater is The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Go figure.

Maybe I should spend more time at Biketoberfest…

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — An Orlando man is recovering Monday after he said he was grabbed by two men and sexually assaulted in Daytona Beach while attending Biketoberfest.

Police said the man was walking along the 400 block of A1A in Daytona Beach early Sunday when two men attacked him and dragged him to a nearby beach.

The victim said he was sexually assaulted by the men at gunpoint.

Great Balls Of Fire

I went and saw Return To the Forbidden Planet last night at Theater Downtown. The Hubby was still out of town and wasn’t thrilled about seeing it because he had never heard of it and he avoids sci-fi.

Me…I have been wanting to see this show for years.

If you take the movie Forbidden Planet (which is based on Shakespear’s The Tempest), throw in Shakespearian dialog (actual and made up), and then add a bunch of 60’s rock and roll numbers that all fit into the story, you have Return To the Forbidden Planet. I know the show ran for sometime over in Tampa and each performance they had a different old time rock group playing the music.

Well, TDT is a non-profit theater so production values are shoestring but I really enjoyed it despite the flaws. I even bought one of the t-shirts – a deal for just $10. If you are in the Orlando area or nearby, go and catch this production. It runs next weekend and then a special Halloween performance. And some of you will enjoy the two young, blond twinks who wear skin-tight silver lame pants with ample “packages” in the show.

Where Have You Been?

Yes, you few, loyal readers maybe asking that. Work and class have taken up my time. I’m still here and things seem to be winding down for today. The Help Desk phone hasn’t rung in nearly an hour. But tonight I do have to come back to work as we do some re-imaging on some PC’s that needs to be done. So I go home for a few hours and come back. Sigh. At least my new blog theme is appropriate for Halloween.

Everyone have a good weekend.

Hmmmmmm….

Silver Lining To Yesterday’s Post

Yesterday I talked about the housing woes in Florida and elsewhere…but today comes some really good news (for me, at least) because of this crisis. Environmental groups are able to purchase land incredibly cheap. I’m feeling really good right now. Wish I could buy some, too!
