It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Speed Limit Increasing to 85 in TEXAS!

Mine and Ryan's home state of Texas currently has 520 miles of interstate highway where one can drive as fast as 80 mph, not sure how many Texans are aware of that.  

Well... The Texas legislature, which consists of a billion Republicans, are wanting to increase the limit to 85 mph on certain highways and rural roads.  Throw in your "free 10," and you'll be able to drive 95 mph in Texas without much chance of getting pulled over.  Maybe even 100, depending on how much speeding ticket revenue is needed to fill local budgetary gaps. You know what? Just floor the goddamn thing and forget the limit altogether. It'll catch up to you in a few more legislatures.

Yet, here they are, wanting to strip me of my longevity pay.  For those who have know idea what longevity pay is, it's where a company gives you a little extra on your paycheck for staying with them year after year.  In my case, since I'm a government employee and work for the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, I get 20 dollars extra a month for being with them 2 years.  In addition, I get 20 more a month for every subsequent 2 years of employment.  In October, I'll be with them 4 years, so this would give me 40 dollars a month on top of my salary.  And this goes for the thousands of state employees, not just mine.

The point of the story is...

Drive faster, kill yourself, and you'll spare the state some money with or without your longevity pay.  You gotta love our RED state.

Yara, Yara, Yara

And the award for 'Creative Genius' goes to.... 

or is that 'Best Dressed?'

Courtesy of blogger, Michael K and RuPaul's Drag Race I bring you this hilarious dress review in regard to Ms. Sofia's ensemble at the New Now Next Awards in Hollywood last Thursday night.

So what's a down on her luck queen to do? Yara ran naked through her hotel lobby in search of the perfect outfit when she slipped on the floor, crashed into a black chiffon curtain (the cape), fell onto a table covered with white sequined coasters (the bikini) and stumbled over the balcony railing before smashing through a chandelier (the necklace) and landing head first on a plate full of carrots (the dreads) sitting on a table in the restaurant. Yara's hand was stuck in a silver bowl of black mashed caviar and after she used it to wipe away a little blood on her eye (the make-up), she turned around to find the entire restaurant gasping at her accidental glamour!
Only Yara Sofia can look like a He-Man villainess inspired by Carrot Top without even trying! BAM (wrong queen, I know).

Two Super-Hotties Lock Lips on April 18th!

Why Ryan and I haven't started watching 90210, is a mystery unto itself.  The show, which airs every Monday on the CW is chock-full of hot guys, including it's very own gay character Teddy, played by the unbelievably gorgeous, Trevor Donovan to your left.

And according to many online sources, Teddy will be locking lips with a lot of "eligible" bachelors, most notably Smallville's, Alan Ritchson to your right. He will be playing tonsil-hockey with Alan while on vacation, or something like that.  All I can say is, Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!.  So set your DVR to record on April 18th to catch this very important episode.  I'm letting Ryan know, RIGHT THIS SECOND.

Foods That Make You Cringe - Issue No. 8

It's been a month since I posted one of these, so for my 8th issue of 'Foods That Make You Cringe,' I'm treating you to breakfast and lunch.  Haha, you wish!  Here's a yummy Oreo Cakester pancake and a KFC double downer in a way you've never had it before.

Every week I'll be stating the obvious fact; that people eat the craziest shit, hence the reason people tell you, "
This Is Why Your Fat."

Your Representatives Know How To Party

They can't manage to come together on a solution to repair our country's financial woes, but hey at least they know how to party.  A staffer who is probably wishing they hadn't done the unthinkable, sent out a photo of republican congressman Sam Graves' office last Friday night.  When the country was on the verge of budget collapse, Mr. Graves took it upon himself to have a few drinks, more than likely thinking of ways to stick it to the Democrats.  

Okay, okay, I'm sure all of our representatives were partying it up.
