Okay seriously, what the HELL is going on lately?

-Apparently it's totally cool to stalk and kill an unarmed child as long as his skin is a darker color than yours. If you live in Florida, the law will support you if you're scared of brown people and start shooting them. Just make up a flimsy story that the evil dark child attacked you first, you'll be fine. Even if you keep changing it. (Link)
-And yet, also in Florida, last year a black woman got 20 years prison time for firing warning shots- didn't hurt anyone- against her abusive husband. (Link) So I guess you're only allowed to defend yourself if you're not black (I would say "if you're white", but Zimmerman is Latino XD). And just think, the Supreme Court just recently chopped off the Voting Rights Act at the knees because racism is totally not an issue anymore. *snort*
-Texas state senate passed their anti-abortion bill (which okay, that's not a surprise, but still.) (Link)
-And finally, to top it off this morning, I wake up and discover that they found Cory Monteith (Finn on Glee) dead in his hotel room. He was only 31 years old. (Link)

I repeat. WHAT THE HELL.

(And no, I'm not going to continue to post about this. It's more for posterity than anything. That being said... god, I know making a post on facebook about it wasn't the most mature thing to do ever, but I just got a long comment basically saying that Zimmerman was the victim and he's been a scapegoat for the "false appearance of nobly fighting against racism." Really? REALLY? She also says that she trusts the decision that was made. I'm trying to not respond angrily, so what I'm working on is this. "Alright, I was upset when I made the post (clearly the most mature thing to do) and I normally wouldn't have said anything. In any event, I'm glad you have more trust in the system than I do. After seeing so many messed up decisions over the years that were clearly aimed at protecting perpetrators instead of victims- decisions that were based not in justice but in racism or sexism or homophobia or some other prejudiced agenda- I don't have that trust. However, the bottom line through all of this is that it's done. I just hope his family can find some kind of peace now that it's over.")

You want to know the sad thing? I actually had most of a journal entry typed out on the netbook this afternoon, but I had to go to class and didn't have time to post it. And now I really can't be bothered to go and get it. XD Oh well.

Short Story test today. I think I probably did pretty okay on it, honestly, though I -hate- in class essay exams. But that's really the perfectionist in me talking, since that's the only time I would EVER hand in a rough draft like that. Usually even my rough drafts have been edited at least somewhat, you know? I edit as I go, generally, not as one huge step after I'm done writing. But that's a whole other thing.

I'm trying to remember what was in that damn notepad entry and I'm not coming up with anything. Dammit. Oh well. There's no word minimum here, I just have to post, so we have that covered already. So there. :P

One last thing: to the Americans on the flist- DO NOT FORGET TO VOTE TOMORROW. You guys know how important this is. I may have to drag my ass after I get home at 8pm, but I'm going regardless. So so so important. You guys know I don't generally get into politics, but we need to get as many people out as we can, you know? Do I agree with everything Obama's doing? No. Are we getting screwed either way? Yes. But the thing is.... Romney's screw is bigger. That's basically what it comes down to for me. So. Go vote tomorrow. *gets off soapbox*

Now off to bed. Looooooooong day tomorrow. -_-

I'll be honest here, I haven't really been paying too much attention to LJ/DW- which mostly has to do with [ profile] blind_go and work kicking my ass, to be honest. ^_^; But eh. So what's up?

☁ AP form sent out. $25 is a little bit of an ouch just to get a score mailed out, but considering how much one class costs, it's a bargain. Once the school gets that, we'll see about changing the Sociology 100 to Social Psychology. ^^ Still need to call the doctor's office and have my immunization records sent out. Need to do that next week. >_<

☁ I feel like I should say something about Obama and his finally claiming his position for gay marriage. On one hand, yes, this is good. On the other, I have two reactions: one, it's about god damned time; and two, what is he going to DO about it? The announcement is clearly politically motivated, considering the timing, so I just worry that he's going to say this and then nothing is going to come of it. Aside from that, it's a big risk and I'm not convinced that it'll pay off. He may have just won Romney the election.

☁ There is apparently a Thai food place downtown I didn't know about. I've never had Thai food and I'm curious, so... hopefully soon I'll be able to go. Kelly likes this place, so that's saying something. We're trying to coordinate a day to go down when we both have off and it's not super crappy outside... which is more difficult than it sounds, lately. So we'll see. ^_^

Has anyone else been having issues with Google? I can't search, I can't watch Youtube videos, Gmail won't load, none of it. But the rest of the internet seems to be fine, and I can't find anything about it being down? ARGH. This has been going on for a few days now and I'm getting really frustrated with it. I even tried switching browsers and it was still a no-go- FF had been timing out, but IE flat out told me that Google didn't exist. O_o. So: I'm generally really bad at checking my gmail, but I do know that I have at least one conversation there that I need to deal with, but I can't get into it at all to make a response. I'm really sorry. XD My hotmail username is the same as my gmail? ^_^;;;

FAFSA- done. I was going to do it last week, but procrastinated Tuesday and felt too crappy Wednesday to deal with it. Whoops. Was not as bad as I had been imagining- I could even import my tax returns right into it, which was a neat little trick. The two school applications are also submitted. Am currently trying to figure out if I can get my high school to send my transcript without having to call them. XD Edit: Sweet, I can zip them an e-mail. They ask for a name and address of the person they're sending them to, though, so does that mean I should have them send the transcripts to me and then mail them back out? That seems stupid. I'm confused.

Just sayin'. We have been flirting with Death Note since last night for the number 11 animanga spot on AO3, and next is YiGiOh. Weee~ (Though I think DN might've cottoned on to what we're doing, looks like they're fighting us a little. GO GO HIKAGO!) Qem asked me to make a banner and very helpfully proved the YuGiOh pic. Didn't turn out half bad. Lish asked me to make an icon for her the other day, too. She does that on occasion and the request this time was super simple, just a crop and cleanup, but it's just kind of weird to get graphics requests all of a sudden. XD

It's supposed to be GORGEOUS tomorrow- 55 and mostly sunny! Perfect day to walk to the library. :D I've been feeling kind of shut-in, so that will probably be helpful. Maybe I can even get through the rest of the first season of Doctor Who finally, since I seem to have a block about watching it at home for some reason. XD

I am now about an episode and a half through Sherlock. It's an interesting take- Sherlock actually admits to being a sociopath (in the most condescending way possible, which is pretty damn amusing), so that's definitely a different spin on the character than I've seen previously. I'm still not understanding how everyone thinks that Benedict Cumberbatch is so hot- he's rather unfortunate looking, to put it nicely. I really don't get it. I can't even blame it on the lesbian thing, really- I can recognize and appreciate when a man is good looking. It doesn't make me want to have sex with him, but I see it. This guy? Nope. Not seeing it. Fandom baffles me sometimes.

After talking with Ai, I finally decided I need to get my butt back in gear and at the very least keeping track of my food intake again. I've been maintaining (within a few pound range, of course) for long enough. On the upside- apparently I've been averaging around 1700 calories a day  without even TRYING- that's maintenance for where I was when I checked. So not NEARLY as bad as the 2500-3000 I was imagining, eh? :D Sooooooo I've been working on food  again and am really happy with the results. 5.4 pounds since the 20th, and 2.8 pounds just in the last week. I'm not trying to brag or anything, just... happy to get the ball rolling again. ^_^;;;

Originally posted by [personal profile] gabrielleabelle at Mississippi Personhood Amendment
Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.

- And you can always repost this to spread the word. (*cough* Sorry, the repost button doesn't work on DW. XD)

*EDIT* There's also a petition on The nifty button for that doesn't work on DW either (fail DW), but here's a link that should work.

☁ I think I'm too old for Twitter. I'm trying to... I don't know, join the rest of civilization? Only it confuses the hell out of me. I have no idea what's going on or what I'm doing. On the other hand, it's something else I can actually access on my phone. Meh. Technology is overrated.

☁ Some technology is okay though. Apparently my library has a thing where you can take out some digital books and stuff online- they just disappear when they're due. Awesome. :D Not a terrible lot available, yet I still have 20 some odd books on my wishlist at the moment. Ehehe. ^_^;;; Should probably start working on that.

☁ In other news, I've just sat here and watched a bunch of Doctor Who. Here's the thing: I've seen a lot of Doctor Who/Torchwood secrets on fandomsecrets... I didn't really know that much about Jack, except that he's bisexual (and they make that clear pretty much right away, don't they? XD) But he's... I don't know, not what I expected. American, for one thing. A little disorienting to hear an American accent when you're expecting a British one. And he's kind of... sleazy, isn't he? I'm kind of failing to see why he's such a popular character. He's a bit of an ass. I have to wonder if this is more of fandom being in love with dick characters, or whether he gets better. Also I have four episodes left of the 9th Doctor and I don't want a new one. SOB. We go from this guy to creepy Barty Crouch Jr.? *clings to 9*

Edit: Am I the only one that wouldn't mind seeing Doctor/Rose/Jack? I don't even know if that's a common thing in DW fandom. XD I'm not seriously shipping it or anything (yet), but definitely wouldn't mind if it happened. Just saying.

☁ I feel like I should be writing- haven't done it properly in weeks- but I just don't feel like it. -_- I dunno, maybe it's going to take a little time to get my writing mojo back. I was going pretty good for a while there.

☁ Breaking out. Ugh, I so don't need this on top of the monster zit that I'm still trying to get rid of. Damn thing practically had its own heartbeat. It's a lot better, but still there. So of course then this means that I'm going to be female soon. Lovely. >_<

As of June 24, 2011, New York State has officially passed same sex marriage. So effective at the end of next month, gay marriage will be legal in my home state. That's just... incredible to me. We took such a blow when California struck it down. I know a lot of us thought that if California of all places didn't legalize it, then we were all screwed. And yet... here we are. Sadly I had to work and didn't get to go down to Albany to see the whole thing happen, but eh. It's enough that it happened. As a gay person, this means so much to me that I can't even describe it. There are no words. Just love.

Fair warning- I'm probably going to be pretty scarce the next couple of weeks. CLEAN ALL THE THINGS- Cut for FLAIL! )

☁ I totally didn't keep up with the online writing class I'd signed up for, but I saved everything for later and took the final exam (multiple choice on the material- I've always rocked at those :D), since that's due Friday. Got 100% and therefore earned my certificate for it since that's the only thing that counts. Yay. And now I know that online doesn't work for me. ^_^;;; Sad, but at least now there's not a question.

☁ New bras~ I'm actually clearly a little bit over a DDD, but not enough to move up to an F. It's nothing that a little maneuvering can't fix, so I'm not going to worry about it. Buy one get one half, so I got a bluish grey one and a brown one. So at least I have a couple of basic bras that fit. (It's so nice to consider something besides nude and black "basic"!) It's funny, changing back into one of the old ones after trying on the new size really hammered home for me exactly how much it really doesn't fit. It was just all of a sudden "Holy crap, how have I been wearing these all this time?" Also, I actually look more proportional now. I mean, I still have large breasts- obviously- but at least now they match the rest of me better instead of the boobs being pretty much everything you see. If I end up being in this size for a while, I might think about getting one or two more nice ones. We'll see what happens. I'm not spending a ton of money just to change sizes again, you know?

☁ Randomly I'm missing Kingdom Hearts and wanting to play it again. Unfortunately (or fortunately, I can't decide which), my copy is still out on loan. Urgh. I'm also randomly wanting to watch Junjou Romantica again- this is actually doable, since I have it and it's only 24 episodes I think. Probably shouldn't though, I have enough new stuff to watch as it is.

☁ Sadly? This is typical of New York politics- a fucking circus. It's almost as if politicians here aren't happy unless they're making a god damn spectacle of themselves. And people wonder why NY is such a mess? JFC. That being said: yes, he's a jackass, but as long as it doesn't affect his work, I don't see a problem. His personal life is absolutely none of my business. Any indiscretions are between him and his wife, bottom line. (Though seriously, you would think he would've learned from Bill Clinton that it's better to just fess up. Just saying.)

☁ Okay, I need to try to get some sleep- I have a long day of work and then cleaning ahead of me. Oh yeah, and there's going to be some nasty storms too when I'm going into work. Yaaay. Something tells me that the next couple of weeks are going to SUCK.

Today sucked. Like REALLY sucked.

1. Ate breakfast and not even five minutes later I was running to the bathroom. :/ I didn't actually throw up, I just really, really thought I was going to. It never completely went away, either- I've been sick to my stomach all freaking day.
2. Got to work and found out that Mike called out (in other words, maybe the stomach thing is a bug that's going around and not a 'my body hates me' related thing like I'd assumed it was, yaaaaaaaaaaaay. -_-), so it was just me and Jeremy. On a truck night. Oh, and it was busy and people were being FUCKING insane. Okay, perfect example: I had a woman that wanted a price adjustment from a few days ago (for a coupon we can't even take, but whatever). She didn't seem to understand anything I said to her and I had to repeat everything I said three times- and even then, some things still didn't seem to sink in. (It was not a language barrier, she spoke perfect English. It was a stupidity barrier.) I did the price adjustment for the two waters on her receipt, having to explain to her what I was doing about four times, she bought her other stuff, and when we were done I put the bottle of water I used for the adjustment to the side so I can take the next customer. Finally. Then she goes, "Can't I take that?" Um, no? We're not going to let you just walk off with shit you haven't paid for. "You already have them at home, right?" "Well yeah, but I wanted another one." " never said that." "Oh. Well, I want another one." GAH! You couldn't have said that, oh I don't know, BEFORE I rang all your other shit up? So yeah. It was that kind of crap all day today.
3. At some point I apparently did something to myself- I went "Ow, my chin kind of hurts," put my finger on it, and... oh look, I'm bleeding. >_< I put a band aid on my chin to deal with it and therefore looked like a total tool for the rest of the day, but I can't be bothered to care.
4. We've had this woman coming in every day for a few days now that drops off ten bazillion things for us to do for photo and totally backs everything up. I ended up staying an hour late dealing with that whole mess. Remember, still don't feel well.
5. I went home and discovered that I left my keys at work. Luckily I've learned from previous airheadedness in regards to that and keep an extra set of keys in my workbag. I grabbed some garbage to go out and went to the grocery store for a few things. I'd finished getting my stuff and was on the way to go pay when I realized I DIDN'T HAVE ANY FUCKING MONEY. My bank card was in my god damned work bag that I dropped off at the house. >_< SO I put the stuff back, walked back home, got money, went back to the store, and got my fucking groceries. I was seriously considering alcohol at that point, but quickly realized that it would probably just make me sicker anyway. Oh, and the cashier that was there is a chatty one, so he yapped at me for fucking ever when I just wanted to get the hell home... but I haven't seen him in a while, so I didn't want to be a total asshole and take off.

The only good thing about today? Osama Bin Laden is finally dead. Yes, I realize that there are going to be people to take his place... but at least he can't hurt anybody anymore. I'm sitting here watching Obama's speech in tears, no lie, and I'm not one that cries easily. It's easy to forget how wonderful a speaker he is until you're confronted with it- this is twice in a few days now, the other one being after they released his birth certificate- again, because apparently the short form wasn't good enough *eyeroll*. The second isn't in the same league, I don't think, and he was CLEARLY angry (I don't blame him one bit for that!), but still, he kept his cool and it was a good speech. Now maybe we can put this incredibly racist birther crap aside (I'm looking at you, Donald Trump, you piece of shit) and move on to other things. As Obama said, "We've got better things to do."

In other news, I wrote some for bg. Not even 100 words of epic terrible, mind, but it's something. (I'm totally going to do day 2 of the meme, just. Not right now. Need sleep. Maybe when I wake up, the day will be not full of epic suck.)

There's a lot going on in the news right now, none of it good for varying reasons.

- Japan: My god. There's really not a lot that I can say here except that my thoughts are with them. What's happening over there right now is horrific, and I can't even imagine how terrifying that must be.

- A disturbing story courtesy of [ profile] hostilecrayon - Basically, an 11 year old girl in Texas got gang raped, and the god damned New York Times decided to run an article that more or less blamed her and her mother for the rape. Jesus Christ. There's a link in what I've linked to the original article and also to a petition to get an apology from the Times. It's the least they should be doing. The guy that wrote it should be fired. At best, it's irresponsible reporting. At worst... well... rape culture rears its ugly head yet again. This is the sickest thing I've seen in a while. There are no words to express my rage and disgust at this whole thing. Really, just... no words.

- My family is having a cow about the Supreme Court deciding that people protesting at soldier's funerals is protected by the 1st Amendment. Now, I'm not saying that protesting at ANYONE'S funeral is the right thing to do, because it's not. But first of all- they've never stopped this kind of behavior before. People have protested at the funerals of gays- I could be wrong, but I seem to remember people protesting at Matthew Shepard's funeral. I'm sure there are other examples that I'm just not thinking of at this hour of the morning. If you're going to try to restrict that kind of thing, you need to make sure it's across the board. Not just for military folk. Second of all, restrictions on the Bill of Rights always make me uncomfortable. It's a slippery slope. If they restrict one thing, then who's to say they're not going to keep doing it? One really only has to look at the US post 9/11 to see how true that is. It's always a matter of concern when they start stripping our rights, regardless of how disgusting I personally find certain behaviors. I don't think people should protest at a funeral, period. I also don't agree with the 2nd Amendment, but you know what? We have a right to those things if we choose- it's up to us whether we use them responsibly or not. You can use your right to bear arms to keep a gun in the house to protect yourself against an invader. Conversely, you can shoot yourself in the foot. It's up to you. Really, it comes down to an old philosophy that is a foundation that the US was built on: "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

1. I've been wanting to watch Prince of Tennis again, but couldn't justify spending the time rewatching that when I have SO many other new things I should be watching instead.

I can watch PoT episodes while I'm doing the free step, which I usually do for a half hour. Fucking BRILLIANT, I tell you. ^_^ Now I just have to pull out Ochibi and get those episodes on the laptop. At least the first ones. :D

2. Watched Yogi's First Christmas for the first time since I was a kid- still fairly amusing. Kind of gag-worthy near the end, but most Christmas movies are. Just comes with the territory.

3. In good news, looks like we might actually get "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" thrown out. YAY! Although... there goes my excuse to not join up if there's ever a draft that they include women in. :P

I had to be up bright and early to do it, since Mom was insisting that we HAD to go right when she got out of work at 7am. Ugh. But it's done and I don't have to worry about it anymore. Now I sit back and wait for the results to come in. Hey... either way we get rid of Bush, and that's a good thing.

Kelly killed me, though. We were just talking, and she's going, "Well, Obama's mother is an illegal alien from Afghanistan!", what? She didn't seem to believe me that there was a lot of that shit going around but 99.9% of it wasn't true, including that. She was also convinced that if Obama's elected, he'll get assassinated. Possible, yes, but that's what Biden is there for. And should something happen to him, it's Nancy Pelosi. It's not like there's not a back up plan here. *headdesk* My sister, you guys... sometimes I really wonder about her.

1. Went for the eye appointment. Somehow managed NOT to be late, and I was out of there within a half an hour, paperwork and choosing glasses included. Woot! The verdict? My prescription is the same. My eyes haven't gotten worse, which is definitely good, since they're bad enough as it is. ^_^;;; Got some new glasses, though, since my insurance covers a complete new pair every year (except for the anti-reflective coating on the lenses), so I might as well. All in all, a little over $80 for the exam copays and the glasses. Woot!

May or may not have done Trace Memory in a marathon and finished it in the early hours of the morning. *shifty eyes* However, I deleted that game, since I want to go through it again and get all the stuff I was supposed to.

All in all, I'd say that it's shorter than Hotel Dusk, but I like the storyline better. It's more linear. It was totally worth the $13.

Lost In Blue... I don't know about that one yet. XD It took me forever to figure out how I was supposed to cook anything, because you don't go up to the fire, strangely enough. XD Oh well.

3. Also got a new mouse, since the one I had was dying. Much better. The scroll wheel actually works correctly now. ^_^ And it has an on/off switch! <3 The only thing is, the curve of the mouse is quite a bit different, so I'm going to have to get used to that. **EDIT** The mouse all of a sudden just quit working. Guh. So I had to restart my computer and hook up the old mouse, and I'll go to the website and try to troubleshoot the damn thing. Grrrr. **EDIT 2** They don't have this model on their god damn site. *twitch*

4. The good news is, Kelly's birthday is taken care of monetarily. I just have to do the work of burning all the DVD's and labeling them and everything. ^_^;;;

5. In other news, it seems that John McCain is going to be the Republican nominee for president. Now, I'm not going to vote for him anyway, but that does make me breathe a little easier. He is definitely the most sane out of all of them- I swear to god it's almost like the Republican party decided to put up a bunch of insane asylum escapees. Every single last one of them with the (sort of) exception of John McCain were completely NUTS. So it makes me feel better that out of the two main choices we're going to have, the republican's not going to be totally unhinged. It therefore won't be a race to Canada if the Democrats lose yet another election. XD

6. This seems to be going around, so why not.
