Not a meme fan, but I wanted to leave a valentine for someone, so I had to sign up, and so why not post the darn thing....

There are a tonne of reminder posts about voting on my f'list these days. I've read them all. I think [livejournal.com profile] also_huey's post was particularly interesting. Huey (who is fabulous, by the way) also pointed me at this.

I'll vote. Probably late in the morning, but we'll see. I spent quite a bit of time checking out and deciding on the ballot amendments, especially on Vote Smart, Florida's website.

In other, less exciting news about life, we went to the local Ren Faire over the weekend and were very disappointed. We'll probably check out some of the other ones in the next few months. We'll skip Sarasota, because it's this weekend and next weekend...this is our only free weekend until December, and the following weekend is Pirate Festival. But, we'll check out Gainsville and probably Tampa. We're both looking forward to the Pirate Fair...a little bit of a change from Ren Faires.

We're going to be on Long Island (at Mom and Dad's) for Thanksgiving-we arrive Tuesday, and come back Monday. We haven't decided on any visitation plans yet, but we might try and do a whirlwind Jersey Tour on Saturday or Sunday if anyone wants to see us.

I need to shop for some clothes, and I need new shoes for Canada-my sister in law had serious admonishments over my choice of Doc Maartens in the snow last year. She complains they have no traction. I trust her, after the slipping and sliding I did, and am considering a different pair of shoes. I probably need new jeans too-it's hard to say when I don't wear them very often.

I think I cast on the same knitting project about fifteen times, and the casting on is fine, but I'm going nuts trying to count stitches and I can't find any stitch markers. I have some yarn I bought over the weekend that turns out to be too lightweight for the project I'd planned it for, so I'll exchange the three skeins I haven't wound for something bulkier, and pick up some more stitch markers. I'll keep the stuff I wound and toss it into the scrap yarn project-knitted patches done in a basketweave and a cable pattern (note to self, buy cable needle as well) and probably crocheted granny squares. Not necessarily turned into the same afghan, but we'll see, as I complete things.

I am a little bit looking forward to cool weather that we'll get in New York and in Canada. I enjoy the little bits of it that we get when we visit. I'm looking forward to more house -organizing, like acquiring bookshelves, and proper storage for craft things. And other stuff.

Eh, it's life. It keeps happening.

This is the meme that's going around in LJ circles lately...

"'Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?'- Ernest Gaines

We would like to know who really believes in gay rights* on LiveJournal. There is no bribe of a miracle or anything like that. If you truly believe in gay rights*, then repost this and title the post as "Gay Rights". If you don't believe in gay rights*, then just ignore this. Thanks. "


(Yes I posted it, mostly so I can write what follows with context for people who haven't seen it yet.)

I'm sure there's no question among readers of this journal what my feelings are on gay rights. I won't sit here and write about my feelings on guns.

I will say that I'd rather see two men holding hands than holding guns. I will say that whether or not someone chooses to post this says nothing about where that person stands on the issue of gay rights, civil rights or human rights in general. I will say that the "you're with us or against us" rhetoric is a lot like the language that came from the Bush administration about the "War on Terror" which many people have mentioned strong, negative feelings about.

In summary, if you are curious about I feel about an issue, ask. If I feel strongly about an issue, I might post about it. I might not. But I'm not likely to resort to memes to express my feelings.

I'm ignoring all the memes that say "Do you read me"

If you post it and don't see me answer, it's not a good way to assume that I am or am not reading you.

I don't post a lot of memes, but I saw this one in [livejournal.com profile] aquariumgirl's journal, and decided to check it out. How much better could you get than a meme in the name of science?

OMG, stupid SATs. wtf with all those people who didn't take them last weekend? pussys. so not fair that they get an extra week to study.

dude, we even went to church on Sunday morning. and guess who was there? that fucking slut who stole my boyfriend. she's even pregnant, and thinks its just okay to show up in church, looking like shes going to drop her baby on the floor any second. shes totally smells bad too, and i bet she even has like herpes or some shit like that. and stupid fucking Brandon thinks i'd get back with him. he even tried to talk to me but i just walked awey. i should have hit him or something. but he went and had sex with that stupid whore anyway. dude, i heard they even did it in the choir loft at church. i should totally like tell mr. z about that, i bet he'd kick brandon out of choir or something and then i wouldn't have to see him, i heard the only reason he still bothers to come to church is because he gets to sing, but he sucks so why should he be there, he even got kicked out of jazz choir in school and hahahahahaha i made madrigals this year so there you suck brandon loser.

mom keeps bugging me to go on the pill, im like why the fuck would i do that it will only make me fatter and uglier and then no guy will ever want to go out with me. not that i would go out with any of the stupid fucks who i go to school with. they're all such babies. i can't wait until i go to college and can actually like date real guys instead of stupid losers. bsides, it's not like im going to have sex until i get married so its not like i needed it now. besides anyways the pill is like bad and causes abortions and makes women fat and stuff, so there so ugly that there hsubands dont want to have sex with them anyway.

shit that was the bell, and i have to go to biology now.
