Words to live by in 2018 from Alexander Woollcott

famous quote, funny, funny quoteAll the Things I Really Like to Do Are Either Illegal, Immoral, or Fattening.

Alexander Humphreys Woollcott was an American critic and commentator for The New Yorker magazine and a member of the Algonquin Round Table. I had never heard of him until I stumbled upon a brief post with the quote above on The Wow Report.

I am dying to use this at a cocktail party so please don’t steal my thunder if you see me out. That goes doubly to my friend Robert who is better known as Etiquetteer, who I have no doubt knows all about Mr. Woollcott.

TIME Person of the Year: The Silence Breakers

Against the backdrop of allegations from women ranging from Hollywood to the US Congress and virtually everywhere in between, sexual harassment and misconduct in the workplace in particular has galvanized women (and men) to speak up this year in a way I’ve not seen since the Clarence Thomas hearings in the early 1990s.

Harvey Weinstein, US Rep John Conyers, US Sen Al Franken, Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, Roy Moore, President Trump and more have all been accused of sexual misconduct and harassment as have many others, and TIME’s decision to talk about this is genius. By shining the spotlight on a topic that is more often whispered about, I hope this encourages more people to step forward, and share their story.

Let me put this year’s TIME Person of the Year cover in perspective….

I moved on her like a bitch… I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything… Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.” — Donald J. Trump

Who knows. Perhaps TIME Magazine really did reach out (as Donald Trump claimed last week) about an interview for this year’s Person of the Year cover. He’s an excellent example of why / how sexual harassment exists and is excused.

Will & Grace

Must See TV, megan mullally, gays rule, will and grace, will & grace, karen walkerGuess what I’ll be watching tonight at 9PM ET on NBC?

Michelle Obama to appear on Will & Grace

pinkInTouch Weekly is reporting that former First Lady Michelle Obama will guest star in the reboot of NBC’s Will & Grace, set to premiere this fall. They write:

“Former first lady Michelle Obama will appear on the show,” the insider reveals. “The details are still being worked out, but supposedly Michelle is up for anything, as long as it doesn’t cross the line too much.”

To that I have to say, cross the line Michelle, cross the line. You will certainly be a welcome site for me. If you want to learn more you can read the original report on InTouch Weekly’s website here.

Will Silver Foxes be the new Golden Girls

Silver FoxesRumors continue to swirl about updating the popular 1980s television sitcom, The Golden Girls, making it about four gay men living together in Palm Springs, CA. The concept even has a name, Silver Foxes, and according to news reports recently had a table reading at Stan Zimmerman’s house (who was one of the show’s writers back in 1985-1986), which was photographed and posted on Instagram earlier this summer (see below).

As much as I love the idea  there remain a lot of barriers to this becoming a reality, but I do love thinking about this. Who would you cast in these new roles? Here’s my thoughts:

Dorothy  —–> Ian McKellan
Blanche —–> George Takei
Rose —–> Nathan Lane
Sophia —–> David Hyde Pierce
