What I'd be posting about if I were posting, which obviously I haven't been:

• The excessive amounts of TV and movies I watch. (Heroes, Supernatural, American Idol -- I'm not sure why -- Stargate Atlantis, and I've seen that Ghost Hunters is coming back, wheee! because there's nothing that makes me happier than cheesy SciFi TV. Also Blood Ties, Medium, The Riches, and Bones. Oh, right, and movies! Recently, V for Vendetta and Children of Men. And 28 Weeks Later is coming out... soon, I think, and I'm thrilled about that because I loved the first movie AND there's Robert Carlyle in it. Yay!)

• How I want to learn to quilt, but am intimidated by the process and the potential cost.

• How I'd like to be doing some gardening, but pollen is kicking my ass instead. The rapidly emptying bottle of antihistamines would be proof enough without the dozens of empty kleenex boxes. Thank goodness for recycling.

I can't think of anything else.

Doctor Who
For those of us in the US, the SciFi channel is starting to air the most recent season of Doctor Who (with Christopher Eccleston) tonight at 9 pm EST. Apparently they're going to show the first two episodes, "Rose" and "The End of the World." Watch it. It's good.

This post is mostly to pyrthalax --

Interesting post. And when I say "interesting" I mean "of the sort that had me up half the night, unable to sleep."

I'm a bit peeved that you felt the need to screen comments and therefore our replies aren't visible, but it's your journal. You're entitled to post whatever you want in it, and you're not required to allow people to respond there if you don't want them to.

I'm also peeved that I'm being told that my journal isn't worth reading because of all my political posts and Realms complaints. Whah? I don't make locked posts -- all of my posts are public with the exception of the occasional house-information post that's locked to my husband -- so what you see is what you get. No one has to read my journal if they don't want to, but don't tar and feather me with the same brush you're using for other people, okay?

I believe that you're putting words in my mouth over the "never forgive you" thing. I don't remember saying that on the one occasion we've talked in the past few years, and in the conversation we had in Steve's journal I said that I "felt disappointed" that you and many more hadn't stepped forward. Hardly the same thing.

I say you are blind, hypocritical and you just don’t get it. You anger against the world made you do stupid things in a foolish order and because you were personally hurt, did not see the truth around you. Still don’t see, even when I and other faced you with it.


Every comment I see you've left in Steve's journal over the Realms issue said that you understood why he needed to take a break. You said that he SHOULD spend time with his family and child. Were you lying then? Or are you changing the truth to suit your needs now?

And, in case you and everyone else have forgotten, the kid that Steve originally took to task for (verbally) gay-bashing Josh ADMITTED TO HAVING DONE IT. Steve didn't just pull the kid's name from his ass -- it was the kid's IM, the kid admitted that he was so drunk he didn't remember most of the evening. BLADE admitted that the kid had done it. So STOP with the freaking "Steve made a mistake and blamed an innocent." Until Adam stepped forward and said that most of the homophobic slurs had been typed by him while the minor kid lay passed out on the floor, no one had any reason to think that it hadn't been the kid, including Blade, who publically stated that it had been.

What is this, quote day?

"If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I'd carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like "Hey, look. He's carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, "That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink."

Hmmmm. Cool vid.
This is a music video for The Sun's song "Romantic Death," apparently made in conjunction with BeautifulAgony.com.

It is not what I would consider work-safe because of the subject matter, although I don't think I'd call it porn since you never see below anyone's upper arms. Might be best to watch from home rather than work, even though it's not a download -- just click and watch.

Now Dante wrote a story.
"Krypto's Biggest Adventure Ever" by Dante

Once upon a time, Krypto was jumping on his doghouse. Then he heard a very big noise. And then he flew up to the sky and he saw the Dog Star ship. Then he flew up and went in. It was pretty mysterious until he saw the Dog Stars. Then he simply goes into the training room and in the training room the Dog Stars practice their skills. Then simply they go to Mechanicat's ship and then they get turned into puppies. And then Hot Dog had an idea. And Hot Dog said, "Wait a minute! Maybe we could do something else to solve this problem." Then Krypto said, "What?" Hot Dog said, "I had a cape when I was a baby and it made me grow pretty fast." And then he simply puts it on Krypto and then he simply grows more fast than a nothing. And then he escaped the ship and gets a cape and The End!

Dante's Poem (transcribed even as he composed it):

Oh Fish Stew, I simply adore you.
I put legos and fish on you to make you smell nice.
I really even put jellyfish on.
And I stir in the tentacles.
And I lick up the jellyish part
And then I simply throw the shell into the trash
And then i put more legos and fish and jellyfish on
And I even mix it up and eat it.

The end!

Because I feel like I should post something.
Not because I have anything to say.

Or maybe because I have things to say that I'm not ready to.

Have y'all seen PostSecret? It's fairly graphics intensive and would take a while to load on dial-up, but it's interesting.

Or how about fantasygoat's LJ? Same deal -- lots of photos.

It's hot and I'm grouchy.

dantesdad's sister had her baby yesterday afternoon! This means we got two new nephews in the space of four days -- dantesdad's brother married a woman with a 5 year old son on Sunday, so hooray for new family members! The new baby, a boy, is named Finn and was 9 lbs 7.4 oz. Mother and baby are doing well.

I don't post very often...
And I don't really participate in the Realms much anymore.

The Realms, while for the most part made of up of young adults, is an *adult* community. There is swearing, drama, and waivers that must be signed (and signed by a legal adult in the case of minor participants.)

That said, there are some people for whom meeting even a minimal criteria for adult behavior seems like a stretch. And there are some who can't manage it at all.

If you can't manage, at the *very* least, to keep yourself from threatening others with physical harm and tossing around homophobic slurs, then you seriously need to sit down and do some thinking about your lack of self control.

Studies have shown that a full third of teens who commit suicide are gay. If you think that's not a big deal because that means 2/3rds of them are straight, then you need the additional information that only about 10 percent of all teens are gay. This means that a gay teen is 300% more likely to commit suicide than a heterosexual teen. A major contributing factor to the depression that gay teens struggle with is the ridicule, taunts, threats, and discrimination that they experience.

If you're part of that contributing factor, regardless of how many excuses you make, you suck.

I don't give a fuck if you're gay or straight, but I sure as hell care if you're a decent human being. I'll take a guy who sucks cock and is a kind, generous person over someone who's straight but an asshole any day.

Things My Child Likes to Talk About
1. His penis. Yes, he's a boy, and he knows it. Apparently, this brings along with it a desire to talk about his genitalia on a regular basis. I've actually heard him utter such things as, "Mommy, I wish my penis was on my head," and "What would I do if my penis got really, really big?" (Yes, I managed to refrain from answering "You'll have to ask your father about that, dear." Actually, I never call him dear. D'oh! A deer. A female deer.)

2. Animals. Dogs, cats, owls, mice, bats, frogs. Generally, these discussions bring along with them the requirement that we "pretend that we're an animal family." I'm usually the mom, but not always. He is often the baby, sometimes the 'big brother.' (Talk of babies must not slide anywhere near the realm of him, as he is most emphatically not a baby, he is a big boy.)

3. Other things to do with his body, and not limited to pee, poop, burps, and farts. He likes his butt a lot too.

4. Computer games/superheroes. He prefers the ones where you are the good guy and have to beat up the bad guy. He likes ones where you shoot/throw silly things at the bad guys (ice creams, pies, eggs, water balloons.)

This morning was fun dress up day, apparently. It is February, bitterly cold, and he is wearing a pair of shorts and a short sleeved t-shirt. If it weren't for the fact that I had to take ten t-shirts out of the bin of summer clothes in the closet before he found one he liked, I'd be glad that he's wearing clothes at all (and not just underpants, which he does sometimes.)

I've spent the past hour running up and down the stairs to the basement, trying to get the damned washing machine to balance. I keep shoving bits of wood and bricks under the corners of it. Stupid thing.

Just found out that my sister in law and her husband are expecting their first baby in May! I am so thrilled for them -- they are going to be amazing parents, and I can't wait to have a new niece/nephew.

*Huge grin*
