Partly Redundant, With a Chance of Grammatical Errors
I've written before about the DC Alert system. I just recieved the following text message and email alert from the DC's EMA that I had to share:
The Department of Defense,(DOD)will be beaming a white memorial light skyward in a vertical manner at the Pentagon on 2 successive full evenings from dark to dawn on September 10 and September 11th only during the hours of darkness.Do they mean "dusk to dawn"? And doesn't that sort of include all of the "hours of darkness"? Can you beam a light skyward in a horizontal manner?
A former blogger informs me that, as he lives near the DC Jail, he has been the recipient of a special alert when they were testing the jail's siren that ended: "This is only a test?"
This sort of fun can be yours if you register for this service at https://textalert.ema.dc.gov/index.php.

Ring the Alarm
When I caught this video on NewNowNext I wondered why it was on that show. I just assumed that it was because Beyonce has a big gay following. But then I got to the end and saw her deconstructed twitches. It was then I realized that Miss Knowles must be learning new moves from drag queens.
Also, why is her album called B'Day? I realize it was released to coincide with her 25th birthday, buy wouldn't B-Day be more appropriate? Because whenever I read that title, I can't help but think of this.

Gay Sheep to the Slaughter
I got an email from someone at PETA. I assumed they wanted me to pose nude for an ad campaign like other big stars who are vegetarians. Then I remembered I am neither a star nor a vegetarian.
She must have googled some combination of gay, sheep, and blog to find me. She wanted to bring something to my attention...
Out of the Closet: 'Gay Sheep' Experiments Exposed
I was wondering how the scientists figure out if a ram is gay. Does it involve a candy dish, Joan Crawford postcard, mascara, and some mineral water?
