California gets its groove back

Judge Vaughn Walker has declared Proposition 8 unconstitutional, making gay marriage in California legal again!

Of course, it's probably going to be appealed immediately, and the whole thing will end up in the Supreme Court, but this is a huge first step and the potential outcome of federally accepted gay marriage is just astounding to consider.

(I'm still moving to Massachusetts if I decide to marry a woman, but hey, good for you, California!)

Writer's Block: Five-Finger Discount

Short answers, HAHAHA YES, and are you kidding? No.

Long answers, I am recovering from a serious shoplifting habit. I mean, serious. If you've been on my flist longer than a year, you know what I mean. I was arrested twice, went through a year of probation, and still didn't stop.

Now I'm seriously making the attempt to quit. After a while, it's not even a conscious thing, it's just... to see if I can. I'll look at something and when I walk out it'll be up my sleeve and I didn't even realize I put it there. Is that the pathology of kleptomania?

I don't steal from people. I don't steal from small businesses. But chain stores... oh man, that way lies madness. >>

OKAY, I didn't mean to write about that but the Writer's Block caught my eye. What I really meant to post:

The Obameter: Tracking Obama's Campaign Promises. They're following 500 promises Obama made, and marking them off as they get completed, put into action, or broken. Look, it's hope in quantifiable form. xD

HEY. Ladies who were discussing the potential Pedobear-bait sidekick of our favorite villain: The actor's name is Dan Byrd, according to the TVGuide article. Nothing in his filmography about it yet, but our show is pretty good with keeping the spoilers under wraps. >>

OH HEY WAIT, much better spoilers re: sidekid and DaddyGray! Thank you, Kristin at EOnline, I love youuuuu.

OK YEAH AND: I had a dream, part of it was all apocalypty, oh no half of the United States is underwater, time to escape, whatever. But the most memorable part: Sitting on a couch, reading poetry aloud, while Sylar sat across the living room listening and knitting. Very quickly and efficiently, I might add, but it was something brightly-colored and silly-looking. xD

Oh, Oscar nominees have been revealed...and the only movie I've seen out of the main categories is The Dark Knight. >> I am so uncultured.

Huh... I could only come up with 73 things right now. Well, I have plenty of time to finish the list.

Now, I would like to make a post to do with US politics, so you can tune out if you want.

An Oral History of the Bush White House. The last eight years from the mouths of those who saw the ship sinking from the inside. Long, infuriating, but revealing things I didn't know that make me even more happy that tomorrow is the long-awaited transfer of power.

Bishop Gene Robinson gave the invocation at the inaugural welcoming ceremony. His prayer is one of the most honestly moving things I've seen in a long, long time-- and yet his microphone was off except for the final line. THIS is the man who should be delivering THIS invocation tomorrow. I can't imagine that Rick Warren can compare, and it saddens me to know how many people won't ever know there's anything to compare him to.

[ profile] maggiesox addresses (her Republican husband's) concerns about the strength of, in my terms not hers, Obama's fandom, and why the Cult of the Messianic Obama doesn't really bother her:
I think the thing that's easy to lose sight of when complaining about the Cult of Obama (and I don't disagree that such a thing exists) is that a lot of people need something, anything, to pin their hope on after these last eight years of corruption and destruction and despair, and it's hard, sometimes, to just let those feelings float around in the ether.

She insists she's not saying anything new, but I think she put it very well, so go see what she has to say.

okay, no more politics.

The Beauty of Urban Decay, a really fascinating photoset from Smashing Magazine. My favorite is about halfway down-- the angel on the gravestone. Strikingly beautiful in a wistful way.

Did you know that the words "orchid" and "avocado" are both derived from words meaning "testicle"? Eight words you may or may not have realized had such prurient etymology.

Be careful about DNA testing or you could find out that your dad isn't your dad... or someone up the genetic stream's been fishing in a different pond. lol.

Liquid wood could be the new plastic. ...liquid wood, lol, what. I mean, yay for a recyclable and natural non-petroleum-based alternative, but.... teeheehee, liquid wood!

Oh, I am so juvenile.

Bad news: the course I want seems to be overbooked now. :( There's one seat left in the Tuesday-Thursday World Religions class, and nine left in the 6-9pm once weekly class... I kind of wanted to take a class that met more than once a week. We'll see how things pan out tomorrow, I guess. (I kind of hope I get the daytime one also because it's one textbook vs. three... >> but all three for the night course are cheaper than the one for Abnormal Psych.)

politics: the far north edition

So, things are getting all shook up with the Canadian government right now. The Conservative Prime Minister is Doin It Wrong, and the other four political parties are all banding together to tell him to GTFO, and it's getting a little bit messy.

Now, I like to think I have some kind of idea of what's going on in the world, but I am pretty much clueless if I can't even understand what's up with our Neighbors in the North. Luckily one of my favorite Canadians, [ profile] beachkid, helped me out by linking me to an extremely informative blog post about how the Canadian government works, and what's the buzz currently stirring up the hive.

If any of you guys are as confused as I was, you don't have to admit it out loud... just go read that post, and be informed. xD

\o/ *hugs for Canada* *hugs for a system with more than two parties of significance* *hugs, in general* \o/

I believe this f**king fish is for you.

I'm an asshole so I skipped church. Rachael went so I don't feel as bad. As long as one of the daughters makes an appearance, we're in the clear.

This was on SNL last night. I understand why they couldn't air it.

F**king brilliant. xD

Also, today's Sinfest is great: one butterfly flaps its wings... )

um. ohman.

There are several reasons I am going to hell.

Making blondies at 3 a.m. shouldn't be one, but I guess my dad thinks it's evil. Whatever, he can't have any if he's going to complain.

This just might be a reason, though.

Quote, yes, not quite unquote... oh god I shouldn't laugh but I am dying every time I look AHAHAHAHAHAH

If I suddenly drop off the face of the earth, it's because Rahm Emanuel came after me for revenge.

...maybe I could convince him not to kill me with the power of blondies.
femmealunettes: (making sexytimes with America : Rahm)
I wish my dad didn't stay in the living room all night, because otherwise I would be baking until sunrise. I don't even know what I would bake. Whatever I had the stuff for, I guess. It would just be something to do.

Listening to Ani DiFranco helps me be less pissed off. Reading about Rahm Emanuel also helps. Did you know that he didn't lose part of his finger in the Israeli military, or ar Arby's when he was a teen? No. He didn't lose it. He gave the finger to Newt Gingrinch. Permanently.

xD You guys have no idea how wonderful the insane tight fandom that has sprung up around this guy really is. It's amazing. Like a force of nature.

Apparently he ended a phone call to one candidate by saying: "Don't fuck it up or I'll fuck you. I'll kill you. All right, I love you. Bye." SERIOUSLY, WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE.

I am still agitated, and I got no writing at all done today, but I don't really feel like not sleeping for another night, so I'm going to double up on my Ambien and pass the fuck out. Goodnight everyone.
