The Sam Adams Musical and New Friends

Some friendships are inappropriate, y'know what I mean? And by "friendships" I'm talking about....oh, heck. I need to admit it to you, my faithful readers. I've been posting some astute political observations elsewhere. And yesterday, well....oops, I did it again!

Gratuitous Britney photo here to illustrate that some things are just too darned tawdry for words ------------------------------------------------------>
(but that has never stopped me from writing about them anyway)

Yes, I shared my innermost thoughts about the recent scandal involving Portland's Mayor Sam Adams and a young man named - I am NOT making this up, non-US followers - Beau Breedlove. And I included a very witty song snippet composed by a local radio station. Want to read it/hear it? Go here.

There. Now you know about my secret place, where I go when one post a day isn't enough. When my big mouth just can't stay shut. But THIS is my favorite place. It is all mine. I heart my blog. And I heart my followers! And those are NOT inappropriate friendships. I would like to go on record that I have never, ever, had sex with any of my followers. As of this morning, anyway.
Geez, that picture of Britney is leading me to think very uncharacteristically slutty. Must get back on track.

So now, I just want to give a shout out to my newest, marvelous followers. Because their blogs are awesome. I already mentioned Emm and Liberal Mom yesterday, so they don't get a second mention here because that would be overdoing it.

I am super excited because my bloggy empire has expanded to ASIA. Writer Khaye-Mydette Sy Cardenas at Melting Chocolate is from the Phillipines. I really enjoy her thought-provoking posts about writing. David King from Surrey, UK is in BIG TROUBLE with me. Getting caught up on his fascinating posts about Pics and Poems has made the laundry and dishes pile up around here. Seriously, each post is jam-packed with crunchy goodness. I lurv David King. Given our age difference, I am wondering if I was too hard on Sam Adams. Hmm. Moving on... An equally distracting blogger is The Grandpa. I lurv him too! Check out his exploration of a life working with words at The Word Mechanic. Ha! I'll bet your laundry will pile up thanks to these followers' offerings.

The mysterious Alexandre Fabbri has thus far only one post at Brasserie Alize. But I know a secret about him. I think he's been posting elsewhere too. I loved him then and I love him now. Truly, madly, deeply.

But we have not had sex.


I also want to acknowledge my non-blogging followers Beckett and desertgirl. I strongly suspect who you are.....and I totally love you for following me. And bushtool? I know you're there. And I really appreciate it. And I think your blog, which for some reason you don't list on your profile, is fantastic. But I won't "out" you.

Which reminds me of the Sam Adams thing.....

Lord, my mind works in annoyingly circular ways.

Have a great weekend, friends. See you Monday!

I had to laugh when I read this. I am now following.

That little ditty was hysterical! As for the 24 year age gap - well it gets less creepy the older both participants are. Is 40 and 64 all that creepy? What's creepy is someone in their 40s not realising they're old enough to know a lot better.

I think your new President is a safe bet.

Rab - thanks! And welcome. Your blog is really interesting.

JaneyV - I loved the song too. And you're right - on all counts - about the creepiness. I'm still going to say my prayers for the President, just to be on the safe side. But I think you're right. I think he realizes he has to hold himself to a higher standard of conduct, like Jackie Robinson did. Oh - and congrats on your progress for the public humiliation challenge!

I have agree with you about Dave King. His post are always thought provoking and often brilliant. I also enjoy the comments you frequently leave on his blog.

My wife is six years younger than I am, but I don't hold that against her. lol

Ok, you definitely make me laugh, FF. (Were you trying? Cause you succeeded.)

I'm glad that I'm already losing laundry time to Dave and Grandpa, because I really can't manage much more time-loss around here.

I'm going to try and think some big thoughts about your films tonight.

funny that you uploaded the photo of Britney. It definitely has a hidden meaning. And if you are more in for music, you may leave all the worries on the shoulders of the guys from They are the best and here is the promo code you may use too g6oa39rW
