SM Johnson ~Thursday Morning Coffee ~ Something to Believe in

Good morning, my darlings! Welcome to This Makes Complete (sense)... To More Congruence. Or Think More Coherently.

Or just.... Thursday Morning Coffee. Yes. Go, pour yourself a cup. I'll wait, because we're going to get a little bit serious this morning.

It's a good week, in some respects. DOMA was invalidated yesterday June 26, 2013. Read the details from Huffington Post.

Per Wikipedia: The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) (Pub.L. 104–199, 110 Stat. 2419, enacted September 21, 1996, 1 U.S.C. § 7and 28 U.S.C. § 1738C) is a United States federal law that allows states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages performed under the laws of other states. Until a portion of the Act (Section 3) was ruled unconstitutional in 2013, DOMA (in conjunction with various other statutes) had also effectively barred same-sex married couples from receiving federal marriage benefits.

SM Johnson ~Thursday Morning Coffee ~ Interview with the Vampire DeVante

"How can I help?" I ask, feeling her restless anxiety, as her desire to curl up and sleep attempts to overrule her sense of blog obligation.

"Really, DeVante? You would write something for me?"

Hm. Writing in her stead was not exactly what I had in mind. I had thought I might wrap my arms around her and breathe sweet sleep into her, hold onto her for just a little, while sending her odd and quirky dreams. It is good for us to connect that way. It serves purpose on both our parts. But no... she has a new boy she stays up too late with, and a husband she neglects far too often, and he gets my bedtime girl. She does not need my help to sleep. Not now.

"You've been gone for eons," she chides. "It would be lovely if you wrote something for my blog."

I care not about a blog. I think it is silly that she stresses and worries about such drivel. But that is me. And this is all about her.

SM Johnson ~Thursday Morning Coffee ~ Jack Reacher

Good morning, darlings, and welcome to Totally Manipulating Carnivores. (Eh, you say? Heh, I say. My work here is done).

Kind of a weird topic on my agenda, yeah, I know, but have you SEEN the Jack Reacher movie? Movie fans, what did you think?

Okay, now....... fans of the books written by Lee Child featuring the character Jack Reacher - what did you think?

Here's my take.... the movie was pretty much okay. I mean, it followed the book and everything, and even if I couldn't buy into Tom Cruise as my beloved Reacher, it was still a fairly entertaining flick. The trouble with Cruise is.... A) he's not TALL enough. Reacher is like.... 6'5" and built like a brick shit-house. Sledgehammer hands. Way more.... the Rock than Tom Cruise. (Besides... Cruise is pretty much to the point in his career where the only character he can play is.... Tom Cruise. You know?

SM Johnson ~Thursday Morning Coffee ~ Supremely Lazy Blogging

Good morning, darlings, and welcome to Too Much Carousing. Um.... This Many Crackers? No? Awwww, crap. Caught me again. It's still Thursday Morning Coffee. Dang. I can't ever seem to fool you guys. Must be on to me.

I suppose you are wondering why the title of this post is "Supremely Lazy Blogging," so I shall tell you. It is because my Saints and Sinners pictures are still trapped on my phone, and I want to post about Saints and Sinners, but it's is 1:37 AM and I am way too tired to deal with getting the pictures OFF my phone and into this blog post.
