Morning Wood

By the time you see this, Damian and I will on our way to Egypt, where I hope to see many men like this guy. Postings will be sporadic these next 10 days or so -- but definitely more eclectic as we explore Cairo, Aswan, Luxor, Alexandria and take a cruise along the Nile. Have a great week!

Another slow week in professional tennis, with most of the big names competing in that gimmicky Laver Cup in Boston. Full roundup BELOW.

Manhattan Cat Specialists: Upper West Side Veterinarian Staff Displays Callous Streak

Kitties through the glass

This one hurts. 

Damian and I were thrilled to discover a cats-only vet, Manhattan Cat Specialists, near our new apartment, figuring it would be nice for Harvey (and us) to not have to deal with dogs during what is typically a stressful outing for our baby. 

After taking him there two full weeks ago because he was vomiting (more than normal for a cat) and appeared to be losing weight, they went radio silent on us. We were kind of beside ourselves -- at one point the vomiting increased even more -- when we finally got an email saying the vet had gotten sick. This was totally understandable, only they then again vanished -- despite having a sign up saying they were going to be closed *one* day -- refusing to provide the results to the blood work we had paid for so we could continue Harvey's treatment elsewhere. 

(I know about the sign because at one point I walked by to see if I could figure out what was going on and discovered they had left the house cats -- Ginger and Ozzy -- to their own devices. I could see no food or water through the glass, but I did see puke and a furry girl who was dying for affection.) 

It was unclear when a human last checked in on the practice's live-in mascots 

They finally reopened today. And rather than figuring out a way to get Harvey in for the ultrasound the doctor said he needed TWO WEEKS AGO, an employee (Rachel Brunell) waited until 6 p.m. on a Friday to be thin-skinned and unhelpful, leaving us to depart for our vacation on Monday they were well aware of with no resolution to the problem we attempted to address with ample time to spare. (Rachel says their "management company" wouldn't *allow* them to do work while the doctor was ill, so it's just too bad we didn't receive Harvey's blood work in a timely fashion.) 

Very disappointing as I assumed a practice that specialized in cats would be more caring ... about cats. Clearly I was wrong.

Yowza! I see a five-car pile-up in this bus's future. Question: What if you're more interested in procuring his? 



Ya gotta love a hot guy who brings protection. More BELOW.

Song of the Day: 'Even Though' by Slow Children

Order singer Pal Shazar's poetry debut HERE.

I'm hearing that obscure '80s darlings Slow Children laid down a bunch of new tracks a couple years after their "Cottoncloud9" comeback album from 2016. So far, this is the only one that's surfaced and it's a(nother) keeper.

I also met a boyfriend of 12 years via America Online, and that was even trickier to cancel.

Song of the Day: 'If You Leave Me Now' by Chicago

Like every "Sex and the City" fan in the world, I'm absolutely heartbroken to read about the passing of Willie Garson at 57, after a battle with pancreatic cancer. (He worked till the end, even filming scenes for the upcoming HBO Max sequel.) Although his Stanford Blatch character wasn't featured that frequently, he still managed to star in several of my favorite moments of the series -- never more so than in the prom scene, where Stanford reunites with boyfriend Marcus, but not before shaming him over his sex-worker past, like we used to do in the good old days. RIP.

His best scene, when Charlotte fixes Anthony up with "Ed Harris type" Stanford:
Anthony: Charlotte, this is so exciting. 

Charlotte: Stanford Blatch, this is Anthony Marantino. 

Stanford: Hi, Marantino. Is that Italian? 

Anthony: Sicilian. 
Stanford: Is that different
