February 17, 2014 Monday Afternoon

Spent Friday night watching the movie American Hustle.  We both enjoyed the movie but not sure if it is 'the picture of the year'.  Went to bed around 10 PM for a round of loving and soon we went to sleep.

Saturday we never left the house.  Spent the entire day watching movies.  We started out the day watching the movie The Hitcher.  We have seen this movie many times and enjoyed watching it again.  Then started watching gay themed movies that I have downloaded.  Started off with the movie Capital Games.  Very good movie and I recommend finding and renting or downloading it.  We then watched Brides Of Sodom which was a vampire movie with little clothed men romping around biting people.  Was OK only because we have seen the other movies like this and knew not to expect much but men on men vampire action.  Ordered a pizza delivered for supper.  Then watched the movie Elliot Loves.  Very good movie about a kid growing up gay.  Finished off the night watching the movie On The Road.  We both thought we had seen this movie before because parts of it seemed familiar.  We still ended up watching the entire movie and enjoyed it again.  Really didn't remember much about the movie and glad we watched it again.  Went to bed around 10 PM and did the lovin thing from watching all these gay oriented movies all day.

Sunday morning we were up by 7 AM to feed the dogs and give Vito his shot.  Went out for breakfast and then went to feed the cats at Tony's shop.  They all seemed fine and let you get within about 5 feet of them before they run.  Bought lottery tickets on the way home.  Spent the afternoon watching more movies.  Watched the movie Wrecked and Aleksander's Price.  Both were very deep movies and very good.  Made salads and warmed the left over pizza for supper.  Spent the night watching two more movies.  Watched the movies Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You and Tumbledown.   Two more excellent movies.  All in all I picked great movies to download and watch all weekend.  Any of the above movies are worth searching for.  Went to bed around 9 PM and did the loving thing.  Listened to my IPod for an hour before going to sleep.

This morning I was up by 6:30 AM.  Fed the dogs and gave Vito his shot.  I knew a snow storm was coming today and planned ahead to just stay home and do laundry and clean.  Did five loads of laundry and some dusting and cleaning around the house.  It is still snowing and this is going to be the heavies and worst of the snow storms to shovel.  Told Tony to make sure he brings home the plow truck because there is way to much snow to shovel the alley.  We will end up with about 6 inches of snow the news casters are saying.  Should end around dinner time so I will most likely be spending tonight shoveling before we settle in the evening of TV.  Making some salad and a couple Stoffer's TV dinners for supper.   Suppose to actually get above freezing tomorrow and the next couple days before another cold front comes through and drops us to single numbers again.  We have not been above freezing since before Christmas I think.


  1. As a woman I'm shocked at your sexist insensitive comments. Firstly, *just because* someone doesn't want to talk about what happened, DOESN'T make it the woman's fault or even partly her fault. That assumption had me shaking my head, going what....the.....fark?!??? She may be feeling ashamed that her life got to this, it may be a personal issue re a sensitive issue, you don't know. I cannot believe you could be so heartless and ignorant to ASSUME it was her fault, JUST because she didn't feel comfortable enough to open up to you. It does NOT always 'take 2', especially when the power is so uneven that you have a strong aggressive man and a weak cowering woman. You are coming from a position of man-man, have you ever reminded yourself that there is a FEMALE here, in question? Not 2 men? It makes all the difference. Seriously, have you ever read about battered women? Most of the time the woman DOES NOTHING. A man comes home from work angry, stressed. The wife didn't cook the right dinner, or she spoke to another man. Husband flies into a jealous rage, while the wife cowers in the corner saying "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to burn dinner" or "I'm sorry, the man offered to help me carry in the groceries because my arms were full, I promise I'll never say hello to him again" before his fist comes at her face. Some women dread their husband returning home from a bad day because they know what is coming. It DOESN'T 'take two', not when a woman does nothing wrong but is the punching bag for an angry and/or drunk husband. I'm serious, I'm not meaning to be mean or argumentative, but your 'it takes two' line is based on a presupposition that all things are equal. A strong aggressive man vs weak woman is a clear power imbalance with a vulnerable party. Seriously, research battered women syndrome or make a quick call to the battered women's shelters and tell them 'it takes two'. I think they'll be shocked and stunned and recommend you take a re-education course.

    Second, there is NEVER an excuse to be violent with a woman, ESPECIALLY with A BABY!!! Almost 100% if a man starts throwing things and smashing things (ie getting physical), then that will at some stage, escalate to bodily physical abuse. NO real man will EVER hit a woman, 'pushing his buttons' is as insulting and caveman-like barbaric as saying a woman 'deserved' to be raped because 'she dressed like it'. A man is supposed to exercise SELF-CONTROL. If he loses control, that is all, 100% totally on him, it has NOTHING to do with the woman. No stable man would *ever* smash dishes in front of a woman and a baby. Don't blame the woman for the MAN'S lack of ability to control himself. NO WOMAN IS *EVER* to blame for a MAN'S ACTIONS. Your attitude that attempts to minimise the actions of an out-of-control violent, unstable and dangerous man is absolutely breathtakingly disgusting and shows how far we as a society have to go when it comes to domestic violence. It seems some in the gay community are as backward and ignorant when it comes to violence, as the straight community. Misogyny, even. It is NEVER ok to victimise a woman and place the blame on a woman for a violent and abusive man. Never. No matter what. You appear to have a 1920s viewpoint on women, and on child welfare. You being gay, I would have expected a lot, A LOT BETTER than that. And the police patrolling the house is a good, positive pro-active thing. You forget that there is a vulnerable woman and a BABY involved here. They are not tough or strong like the male gender. I find it hard to believe you're annoyed because the police are protecting the vulnerable. I would have thought that was something to commend, not whinge about? My god, I don't understand you! Not at all. You seem to really hate and resent women.

  2. ...
    (cont) Lastly, I agree a child shouldn't be removed but clearly it is a cause for concern that such a violent, unhinged and unstable man is allowed around a baby. BUT, there is one thing you are missing. CPS can give help and advice and counselling to the mother. Just because you call CPS doesn't mean you only do it with one thing in mind; the child being removed. CPS don't automatically remove children. They can come in, assess things and take a proactive approach such as counselling. Perhaps the couple are struggling with the demands of being a parent so fights escalate? CPS can assist with counselling and coping techniques.

    Its not ALL about having the child removed. There are benefits to calling the CPS that *don't* have anything to do with removal. That's a last resort. If you had called CPS, instead of baulking because you assume doing that means the child be removed (a common misapprehension), maybe the mother and father could have gotten counselling and help. But you prevented that, because you thought that if you called the CPS the baby would be removed, because you believe the only thing CPS does is remove kids. Wrong. Calling CPS and getting all 3 counselling and help could only be a good thing.


  3. Sorry, Dave----but I agree with Sally (and were not the same person---check the i.p.address of the posts).
