Yesterday the HoR voted in favor of an anti-flag burning amendment, the SCOTUS decided against the 5th amendment, and new anti-porn legislation went into effect.

I think I killed my brain with Scrabble. It was actually about 2 hours before we gave up. Hardcore man. I also baked a cake, and finally got my teapot. Boy, that was annoying. If an ebay seller only accepts BidPay, kids, don't DO IT. It's a nice little teapot though.

very sorry to all but honestly I don't care what your six favorite songs are.

1) Every time I do a grocery store ad, I want to weep for how much more expensive food is here than in the South.

2) You know, I'm getting a little fed up with you angst-mongers.

3) It's possible to disagree with someone without hating them.

4) Reg bought a power massager from Sharper Image. I think it hurt me.

How do people manage to be so egotistical yet so full of self-loathing?

don't fuck with me this morning.

some guy did and I called him an asshole.

and then, you know, he called me a bitch and I started crying.

I was just sitting calmly at the bus stop reading the paper, but without the iPod. If only I hadn't forgotten it, he might not have asked me if I went to school.

Actually he was like "Are you in school? Do you go to college? Are you a student?" No shit. I figured he was a retard at first, so I said no, I worked. He asked then if I had a degree. When I said yes, he asked if it was from UW.

At which point I said, "Can you just let me read the paper?"

And he said "Oh, because I'm a man you don't want to talk to me? I bet if I were a woman you'd talk to me."

I told him that in the mornings I just wanted to be left alone. But he kept insisting that it was because he wasn't a woman, that was why I wouldn't talk to him.

So, then, yeah. I did have presence of mind to storm off before starting to sniffle, at least. And then I caught a different bus to work.

oh boy

"Humorist" writes about 2-year-old getting kicked out of preschool. HILARITY ENSUES.

edit: more hilarity! although, not quite as funny.

Why the hell do people get STAR TATTOOS. Do they not realize how completely fucking derivative they are, or are they just too stupid to care?

I get really really mad about people who get pregnant or STDs that are so, so, easily avoidable. I mean, I guess I'm more afraid of getting pregnant than of STDs, but I'm sufficiently afraid that I can count on one hand the number of men I've not used condoms with. So sure, I feel bad for people when I hear about it, but at the same time there's always the undercurrent of HOW CAN YOU BE SO STUPID? Especially because, hello! AIDS is still pretty much a death sentence. There's all kinds of ways to reduce your risk factor for STDs, but this one is still the most effective. No one LIKES condoms, but I bet you like them better then sores on your genitals.

So along with [ profile] victory_goddess's doppelganger, this morning on the bus there was a little kid. Which, ok, whatever, I didn't even notice him till he started screaming his head off. And that was annoying, but it was over pretty quick. Yesterday, though, one of the buses never came, so I (and a huge crowd of peeps) had to wait for the next one, so I quickly quickly snapped up a seat in front. These are the sideways-facing seats, and I ended up with my head facing some bum's crotch. I mean, he hadn't showered, and for like ten minutes he stared at me. I stared firmly to my right, out the windshield, till I could feel his gaze easing off me. He wore a belt like my father used to, a big black leather one with two holes for two prongs. My father used to use it to discipline us till we were too old.

So, these two nasty little bus people both intruded upon my life, and I guess it's just because of two factors. First of all, I live in my own little world, and I don't like being broken out of it. And secondly, every little thing seems to break me out of it. I'm conservative in that way; I don't like loud noises or people acting weird or dramatic. I get very uncomfortable being accosted by street people for money or even just directions, and catcalls bother me on a level additional to the standard one. Actually those are really the worst, like someone firing a gun across your field of vision just to get your attention. But anything is like that, to a lesser degree, honestly.

but what's with formerly bitter cynical people becoming totally fucking gooshy and in love with humankind when they start getting laid on a regular basis?

In other news, I saw Spellbound last night, finally. It was good. I get to make fun of reg's LOGARRHEA now.

[ profile] baldghoti: Midgets

Midgets are funny, yet sad. Don't they realize that the world isn't even designed for normal-sized people who happen to be a little short, let alone them? They should therefore kill themselves.

[ profile] jette: Dogs

I used to like dogs, when I was a child with no friends, but then one bit me. It was shot and killed, of course. A cat could never ever bite someone so violently that she'd have to get 30 stitches on her face, side and leg respectively, and yet we allow these animals to baby-sit our children? That's brilliant. Even if they aren't very bitey, they still can overpower you with their giant legs and tongues. And they smell bad.

[ profile] pokemyeye: Clogged drains

Clogged drains totally suck. I mean, think about it logically. We live in the 21st century, all we want to drain out is WATER. Can a drain not be invented with holes so small all the get rid of is the water, and maybe a trap in-between for the nasty gunk that clogs drains? What is the difficulty here? Why is the bathroom more than a match for modern technology?

[ profile] llarian: the tech industry

The tech industry attracts the most unattractive, uninteresting, uncool people it has ever been my distinct lack of pleasure not to avoid meeting. This ranges all the way up to the boring normals. Because of this, you are expected to put in 60+ hours a week to fulfill requirements. I mean, everyone else has no life and is doing it, so why don't you?

[ profile] liquid915: Andrea Dworkin

The misinterpretation of Dworkin's writings to say "All sex is rape" has totally fucking led to the hatred and devaluation of feminism. And I think she's really fucking gone mad, but otherwise I can't say anything else about her.

The true purpose of Valentine's Day, as marketed in America now, is not, as the single suspect, to remind them of their failures. Nor is it designed to make men paranoid. Rather, it is to re-affirm the primary school hierarchies.

I've got the right balance of uppers and downers in me right now to prevent panic attack AND passing out. Anyway, without further ado:

• bluegrass
• country music after 1930
• jazz after WW2 that didn't come out of new orleans
• soulful r&b
• anything with "smooth" in the description
• southern rock/alt country
• "bling" rap
• skater punk
• speed/death metal/industrial (unless it's more electronic than instruments)
• Tool
• folk music, or just any "singer/songwriter" with a plinky guitar
• glitchy IDM without a beat
• psytrance with only a beat
• french hip-hop
• nerd rock
lauralh: (something wicked this way comes)
the idea of being a voyeur is far more appealing than the reality.
lauralh: (i am so shake dude)
thought of the day:

just because something makes you "uncomfortable" does not make it "immoral"
