The C-word

Abingdon Boys School
In reference to Adam's latest post, an excerpt from a conversation with a friend:

Me: He loves the cunt
Friend: LOL
Me: *shrugs*
Me: I lack one
Me: I do, however, have a mangina.
22. My new 3G 8Gig iphone will be here in two days. Yes, I've gone back to mac. However, I'm being a total jew and buying a refurbished one for 49.00$. Holla.

23. I just took a shower and totally naked while typing this. (For all of my fans ;P )

Sonoma County CA separates elderly gay couple and sells their home
Sonoma County CA separates elderly gay couple and sells their home

Clay and his partner of 20 years, Harold, lived in California. Clay and Harold made diligent efforts to protect their legal rights, and had their legal paperwork in place--wills, powers of attorney, and medical directives, all naming each other. Harold was 88 years old and in frail medical condition, but still living at home with Clay, 77, who was in good health.

One evening, Harold fell down the front steps of their home and was taken to the hospital. Based on their medical directives alone, Clay should have been consulted in Harold's care from the first moment. Tragically, county and health care workers instead refused to allow Clay to see Harold in the hospital. The county then ultimately went one step further by isolating the couple from each other, placing the men in separate nursing homes.

Ignoring Clay's significant role in Harold's life, the county continued to treat Harold like he had no family and went to court seeking the power to make financial decisions on his behalf. Outrageously, the county represented to the judge that Clay was merely Harold's "roommate." The court denied their efforts, but did grant the county limited access to one of Harold's bank accounts to pay for his care.


What happened next is even more chilling.

Without authority, without determining the value of Clay and Harold's possessions accumulated over the course of their 20 years together or making any effort to determine which items belonged to whom, the county took everything Harold and Clay owned and auctioned off all of their belongings. Adding further insult to grave injury, the county removed Clay from his home and confined him to a nursing home against his will. The county workers then terminated Clay and Harold's lease and surrendered the home they had shared for many years to the landlord.

Three months after he was hospitalized, Harold died in the nursing home. Because of the county's actions, Clay missed the final months he should have had with his partner of 20 years. Compounding this tragedy, </b>Clay has literally nothing left of the home he had shared with Harold or the life he was living up until the day that Harold fell, because he has been unable to recover any of his property. The only memento Clay has is a photo album that Harold painstakingly put together for Clay during the last three months of his life.</b>

With the help of a dedicated and persistent court-appointed attorney, Anne Dennis of Santa Rosa, Clay was finally released from the nursing home. Ms. Dennis, along with Stephen O'Neill and Margaret Flynn of Tarkington, O'Neill, Barrack & Chong, now represent Clay in a lawsuit against the county, the auction company, and the nursing home, with technical assistance from NCLR. A trial date has been set for July 16, 2010 in the Superior Court for the County of Sonoma.

Are you disturbed by the story of how Clay Greene was treated by the County? Please post this, pass it on, do whatever you can to help raise the visibility of what happened to Clay.

Also, please write a letter to the local paper, the Press Democrat (owned by The New York Times) asking them to do some investigative reporting on the Greene v. County of Sonoma case. So far they have ignored the story.

Send a letter to the editor at letters@pressdemocrat.com. Include the story and a link to this post.

Adam Lambert: "YEAH I BROUGHT LASERS!!!!"


rofl quote of the night

April 13th, 2010

16. I want to see Glambert and Aaron get it on.

17. I'm really hungry but Glambert is on American Idol right now and I don't want to miss a second.

18. Then again, with most of the singing I'm hearing, I think I just want to puke.

19. I believe Ryan Seacrest is gay for Glambert.

20. Adam is pre-ordering Crystal, Tim, and Aaron's songs for us!

21. "ADAM IS MAGIC!"

April 11th, 2010

Okay, so this is addictive in a "the Burning Questions of Bingo Brown" sort of way.

(And if you haven't read that book, read it. Or let your kids read it. Its one of the greatest pre-Harry Potter and pre-Percy Jackson kid's books of all time.)

11. I spend more time watching videos on youtube then I do watching television.

12. I want to dress up as King Henry VIII a la The Tudors for Halloween.

13. I want Adam to dress up as Anne Boleyn.

14. Adam's godson is fucking a guy that looks like Glambert, and I'm jealous as hell.

15. I admitted last night that I do, in fact, like boobs. On women.

Five more things about me

AFI
I had some more thoughts, so here we go.

6. I just realized that the new journal design that I picked out doesn't show user icons, considerably alot like Adam's. I'm not sure if it bothers me or not.

7. I found six squeaky tennis balls under the bed when I vacuumed.

8. I learned that cheap watercolors work just as good as the expensive ones.

9. I think absolutely no one will read my journal unless I go out of my way to tell people, and then only get reads out of pity.

10. I realize I ought to be tweeting these, but I've deleted my twitter account long ago. So of course, the moment I do, Adam decides to pick his back up. Long live the twitter diva (him)!

*Head Desk*
I randomly chose a new journal design, and now at second look it looks more like the colour of poo then chocolate. I think I need to change it.

Today I decided to post five random things about me. This isn't a meme, nor did I pull it off of the "writer's block" thing on the home page.

And here we go:

1. I chose a new journal design that has the colouring of a pile of shit.

2. I fell asleep last night with my trousers down.

3. I think Command clips/hooks/velcro strips are the greatest invention since toilet paper and the ipad.

4. I feel like making a latch hook rug, and then using it to cover up a wine spill on the carpet.

5. I get high when I use my AB markers for drawing, which is often.

If the interior discussion in your head were indexed by category, what would the five most recurring subjects be?

1. Wanting to keep Adam happy/show him how special he is
2. Why customers suck, how they suck, and what the hell is wrong with these people
3. Writing, story and character development for this graphic novel that I'll probably never finish
4. Making all the art I always say I'm going to make but never finish
5. Shopping

Disney World 2010!?

Share
Abingdon Boys School
My baby and I were talking the other night with a mutual friend and the conversation went from disability and taxes to Disney World. We've just started requesting time off for the next year at my full-time job, and I was saying that Adam's favourite time of the year is Halloween (for obvious reasons). The conversation turned to discussing an 'adult' trip to Disney World, and it looks like Adam's pretty serious about wanting to go for his birthday next year! So maybe next year we'll be sporting mouse ears and stalking Captain Jack Sparrow!
