Stupid Cali

August 14, 2004

Since I tend to not pay attention to the news on my day off, this is a day or so late, but California sucks. Actually, most of the states suck, Ohio in a big way, but Calif. just made headlines for sucking, so they’re getting singled out. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you suck too. Click here so you won’t suck any more. And I learned as I was looking for that link that Australia sucks, too.

On another topic, Rusty just got yelled at by Dave for eating cat shit. Trivial, I know, but I thought I’d get my mind onto another topic. Now Dave is making idle threats that the dog can’t understand about building a dog house and making Rusty sleep outside. Dogs are great.

We’ll be heading to my parents’ house in a little over 10 hours for a fishing “tournament,” so I’m thinking I should probably at least think about going to bed. Nighty-night!

*BURN UPDATE* It’s snoring.

Flowers for a stranger

February 23, 2004

Yeah, I was totally unproductive this weekend. I did get some dishes done, but that’s about it. Oh well, there’s always Thursday.

Work sucked ass. That’s all I’m going to say about that.

I saw a fabulous sign whilst browsing the AP photos tonight. It was out in San Francisco; I can’t remember if they were at a protest or at the courthouse or what, but it said “Preserve Marriage Ban Divorce” That is exactly right. I still want to send some flowers out, but I’ll have to wait until tomorrow. They are still marrying couples tomorrow, aren’t they? I want to thank RevSpork’s girlfriend for informing us all of these goings-on, by the way. Rock on!

Mom tells me our little Rusty has hurt his hind leg/paw. Rough-housing outside, no doubt. Silly puppy; I can’t wait until we have him up here!

*BURN UPDATE* It wants to play Tetris.

Damn you Mother Nature! Who do you think you are, covering Findlay in snow? Don’t you know my husband has to get up early and drive to work? The nerve.

Did A1 almost on my own today; I think I’m getting better. You’d have to ask Ted whether I really am or not.

How about a big woo-hoo to “Lord of the Rings” for winning four Golden Globes! Best drama, Peter Jackson won best director, and two musical awards.

How about another big woo-hoo to Cleveland Heights, whose domestic partner registry begins today! I know it’s not legal, and it’s not the first, but still! It could help late on down the line. Take that Bob Taft!

So I lost two pounds, and then I got PMS and they came back. They’re on their way back out though, and they’d damn better take a bunch of their friends with them!!! About 50 of their friends, and then I’d be happy. But just a couple for now would be good.

Sorry, I’m all hopped up for some reason. And I’m having trouble typing, so I’m going away now. I’ve screwed up about every other word so far, and I just can’t take it anymore.

*BURN UPDATE* It hates the snow.

Damn that man! No, not the man, that man, Dave. He sprayed catnip spray on one of the cat toys and then went to bed, leaving me to deal with the psychotic aftermath.

I have so many things I’d like to babble about, but I can’t seem to decide. Maybe I’ll just try to be brief and get them all in.

First, did anyone happen to watch the Maury Povich show on Monday? If you did, then you saw my ex-step-cousin. How, uh, special is that? All I’m gonna say is: it was a paternity test show.

I finished that travel story, and I’m pretty proud of myself. I know that sounds conceited, but I’m an editor, not a writer, so I thought I did a decent job. I’ve written a guest column before, but that is so different from a real story. Especially because the column was about Harry Potter, which I adore, and personal, so it was kind of easy to write. If you’d like to read the column, click here. The travel story won’t be online, but maybe I’ll stick it on here in case anyone wants to read it.

You know one of the things I hate about life? How you can’t keep track of some of the people you really want to keep track of, but others just won’t frigging go away.

Know what else I hate? The way some politicians make their own prejudices into law. It seems that everybody in the state and local government is in a rush to ban/outlaw gay marriage. Who the hell do they think they are? They don’t have any fucking right to decide who’s allowed to get married. Not to mention there’s this thing called equal rights. I hate to break it to them, but the divorce rate would go down if gay people were allowed to get married. Children of gay marriages would have two loving parents, which everyone is so worried about. It would put us one step closer to actually being a society of equality. I could go on, but I won’t. I’m getting too hopped up. This will probably irritate my Republican friends, but depending on who ends up winning the primary, I just may vote Democrat in November. I’ve got some research to do.

On a lighter note, I’m going to try and make Dave a Mr. Hat puppet (from South Park for those saying what the hell is a Mr. Hat?). I guess he told one of his classes that if they all did well on their next test he’d teach using Mr. Hand one day. I asked where he was going to get said Mr. Hand, and he said he guessed he’d have to try and make one. Since I’m the crafty one, I figure I’ll try to make it for him. I’m thinking he’ll mainly be made of felt, but we’ll see. If he turns out looking anything like Mr. Hat, I’ll put a picture on the sight.

And, finally, I love rediscovering CDs. At this very moment I’m listening to a Clay Walker CD that I haven’t listened to in years. “Rumor Has It,” to be specific. I may throw the other two in later, or I may just keep this one going the whole time. It makes me think of Jen.

*BURN UPDATE* Still there on my scaly dry skin.
