Which reminds me that I'm completely jonesing for autumn, and if I miss it this year I'm going to be so pissed. All of the overtime last year made me miss the end of summer, the entirety of autumn, and almost the entire winter. It was no fun getting to work when it was dark and leaving work when it was dark--let me tell you, internets. One of my best memories (this was several years ago) was one late afternoon/early evening in October when me and Dustin parked the car in the deserted lot of an abandoned building, cranked Third Eye Blind's first album, and played with radio-controlled cars for a couple of hours. My favourite time of year, my favourite music, and my favourite guy <3

This summer has blown so far, for both of us (and for some others that I know). Come onnnnnn autumn, make me believe things are going to be okay again.

A couple of memes, one each from Kelly, Geena, and Sara:

the one nabbed from Kelly: )

a GREAT DETAIL meme nabbed from Geena: )


Day 01 – Introduce yourself

Hi, I'm...Amy, and I'm...here. I just turned twenty-five, I live in Iowa, I've been married for seven years, and I have a four-year-old. I spend six to ten hours a day working data entry; soon I'm to be working from home, though my employers are still trying to hash out the details. When I'm not working, if my daughter isn't around or is sleeping, I spend much of my time writing original fiction, containing characters (though I honestly hate calling them that--they're people, dammit) and a story I've had in my head for the last four years. It's evolved much from when it started and still isn't worked out completely, which is actually just ducky with me. I also spend time reading other people's original fiction and talking with them about our various worlds, and fucking around on GPX+, an online Pokemon game. Stories and writing are my true loves, and are not just hobbies but a lot of the time honestly the glue holding me together. I also have a few close friends who mean the world to me <3

More later! Maybe this daily meme I'll actually keep up with.

and lastly, one from Sara: )


I want to throw dirty diapers are the genius that wired this house. Breakers going off all over the place >:\

"I hate it when you lie to me," she said simply.

"I didn't lie, Liz! For God's sake!"

"Sometimes people lie just by being quiet."

"I was going to tell you anyway," he said. "I was only trying to find my way to it."

But was that true? Was it really? He didn't know. It was weird shit, crazy shit, but that wasn't the reason he might have lied by silence. He had felt the urge to be silent the way a man who has observed blood in his stool or felt a lump in his groin might feel the urge to be silent. Silence in such cases is irrational...but fear is also irrational.

And there was something else: he was a writer, an imaginer. He has never met one--including himself--who has more than the vaguest idea of why he or she did anything. He sometimes believed that the compulsion to make fiction was no more than a bulwark against confusion, maybe even insanity. It was a desperate imposition of order by people able to find that precious stuff only in their minds...never in their hearts.

Inside him, a voice whispered for the first time: Who are you when you write, Thad? Who are you then?

And for that voice, he had no answer.


--Stephen King
"The Dark Half"



Just a little quote I wanted to share, along with this question for my writerly friends: Do you find that when you're depressed, your characters, your stories, go away? I don't just mean the lack of inspiration and motivation to actually write them, I mean the part of the characters, the people, that live in your head. Are they gone, or silent, when things build up in your head to a point?

I know sometimes my guys won't shut up so that there are five or six different scenarios/story arcs going on at the exact same time, things I can hear and see (in my head, not physically). But sometimes, even when I need them and call to them, they're...blocked? They can't get to me, or I can't reach them, through the tangled mess that is everything else. I know there are different levels of writer's block...the type under which you still write, but think everything you write is shit. The type where you know what you want to write, know what happens in the story, but simply cannot get started, and there's the type where no one, no characters/people/stories is coming. They're either not doing anything, or they're not there. I'm having trouble saying what I mean, I guess, but to those of you that write, I get the feeling you'll already know what I mean.

So. What do you guys think?

Elton John and Rush Limbaugh agree on same-sex marriage

As many of you know, Elton John caused a controversy this week by performing at anti-gay marriage radio host Rush Limbaugh.

Well, as it turns out, Elton John is anti-gay marriage as well!

Says John:

“What is wrong with Proposition 8 is that they went for marriage. Marriage is going to put a lot of people off, the word marriage… I don’t want to be married. I’m very happy with a civil partnership. If gay people want to get married, or get together, they should have a civil partnership… You get the same equal rights that we do when we have a civil partnership. Heterosexual people get married. We can have civil partnerships.”


You see, both he and Rush Limbaugh are opposed to gay marriage, but support civil unions.

(source)

Because nothing makes me happier than an openly gay celebrity speaking out against gay marriage!

Seriously, this is so disappointing. Civil unions are NOT marriage, people! They don’t provide the same rights at all!


From Tumblr


my god, are you for real. then get a civil union, you jackass. other people want to get married, and they should have the basic fucking right to.

I want to know who the fuck it was that decided queer people are sex-crazed idiots who want only to have sex with person after person, and in some cases including children, so that just about every queer person in the world can line up and PUNCH THEM IN THE FUCKING FACE

I seriously want to know where this line of thinking came from. I'm tired of hearing about how gays want ONLY sex from people of their desired genders, that bisexuals cannot be faithful to one partner because WELL THEY'RE BI SO THEY OBVOUSLY ~WANT~ SOMEONE OF THE OPPOSITE SEX THAN THEIR CURRENT PARTNER. The other day on the radio, Beth the news girl was commenting on Chely Wright's recent outing, and one of the DJs did a Brad Paisley voice (Chely and Brad dated years ago), going, "You mean all that time we were going out you were DIDDLING other girls?!" (and the other DJ chimed in with, "and you didn't even let me watch?!") BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY she COULDN'T be in a monogamous relationship because she's attracted to others--it's IMPOSSIBLE for her to have been faithful to her boyfriend because she's gay. She doesn't have a brain or heart, only a sex drive, and thus MUST have been fucking around with other girls while dating Brad. (Let's turn it around, shall we? EVERY heterosexual man that has a girlfriend is DIDDLING OTHER GIRLS while with her, because he's attracted to females and can't stop himself! THIS IS SURELY TRUTH.)

IT'S NOT JUST A FUCKING JOKE, YOU FUCKING DICKS. That's the kind of SHIT that only encourages these stupid fucking ideas. God forbid your kids have a gay baby-sitter or teacher, because OBVIOUSLY all the little boys/girls are going to be molested. It CANNOT be that a person, regardless of sexual orientation, simply wants to care for or teach children. Are all heterosexual teachers going to molest children? NO. What about other caregivers? NO. Guess what--there are TONS of heterosexual sex offenders, many of which have gone after children. When a queer friend of mine visited last January, she was holding my daughter's hand through a grocery store, and walked off with her toward the rides and games while I was in line to pay for our things. If ANYONE ever even implied that that was inappropriate, I will promptly lose my shit. IT'S A PROMISE.

I don't understand how quite a lot of heterosexual people think this way. Do they think gay people are STUPID? Or just so, so perverted that they can't help themselves? Queer people just CANNOT be intelligent, responsible, emotionally-healthy, NORMAL PEOPLE JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. My own mother spouts "I DON'T TALK ABOUT MY SEX LIFE SO DON'T TELL ME ABOUT YOURS" the second a queer person's sexuality is mentioned. Because everyone knows gay people can't stop talking about who they have sex with, and how. The news girl on the radio didn't want to go backstage to see Joan Jett quite so much any more once it was mentioned Ms. Jett likes the ladies. BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY YOU ARE JUST SO ATTRACTIVE NO ONE CAN KEEP THEIR HANDS OFF YOU. At least, gay people can't. Gay high school kids are bullied, intimidated, and beaten because everyone is deathly afraid of BEING TOUCHED or LOOKED AT by someone. I can't even imagine how horrible the lives of some of these kids are, especially when locker room situations arise. When I was in high school there was only one boy that was out, and it was a small enough school that people mostly said shit, to him or behind his back--as far as I know, he wasn't physically abused. Still, there were PLENTY of other ways people went out of their way to hurt him or make him feel bad. WRRRYY

Why does it have to be the foremost thing about a person? As soon as some people hear "gay" or "bi" about someone, it seems to be ALL THEY NEED TO KNOW. The queer person can't possibly be JUST A PERSON. Okay, and how about this--how is it even anyone's BUSINESS who someone is sleeping with? Or IN LOVE with? You can be out and proud, but that opens you up to much ridicule and prejudice. You can keep it to yourself, but then you're either keeping it ALL to yourself, or you can tell specific people, but eventually moronic people find out, and then you're back to getting piled on with all of the stupid fucking shit ignorant and oblivious people brand you with.

I guess it's better than it used to be, like thirty years ago, but my god, sometimes the indignation of these comments is too much to bear, and I just want to fucking explode all over these dumb fucks because even one casual comment that's baseless and derogatory only has like five hundred responses I could give for it. LIKE SCIENCE. You know...that logical stuff that PROVES things? Or are we not including since in our prejudice today? You ever notice that the smart, intelligent people are the ones who understand this, while the ignorant, stupid, ~not the brightest crayon~ people are the ones who are all homophobic? I'M JUST SAYING. (That or religion gets them. Read THIS, numbnuts.) Oh god, I don't even want to get into the injustice of marriage equality. EVERY ONE of the arguments against it is STUPID.

RIGHTEOUS ANGER

From http://shaanmichael.tumblr.com/post/287043228:

“Has Uganda gone too far? Should there be any level of legislation against homosexuality? Should homosexuals be protected by legislation as they are in South Africa? What would be the consequences of this bill to you? How will homosexual ‘offences’ be monitored?,” the post added.

Premoderated posts included one from Chris, Guildford, posted at 8.59am, which attracted 51 recommendations of support. He wrote: “Totally agree. Ought to be imposed in the UK too, asap. Bring back some respectable family values. Why do we have to suffer ‘gay pride’ festivals? Would I be allowed to organise a ‘straight pride’ festival? No, thought as much!! If homosexuality is natural, as we are forced to believe, how can they sustain the species? I suggest all gays are put on a remote island somewhere and left for a generation - after which, theoretically there should be none left!”




Oh yeah, that's a great argument. Sure, people who are pro-gay rights claim it's natural, but since when do they claim it's the only way people are to be, like a lot of anti-gay rights people seem to infer? I don't know one pro-gay rights person who thinks every human is supposed to be homosexual, only that a percentage are (or one of the multitude of other different human sexualities and genders), and the only thing they seem to compile everyone into is the right to be treated the same as everyone else. Heterosexual people are the only ones I've ever seen telling people their way was the only way for everyone to be, and the only ones I've ever seen use this dumbass logic, which is just about as stupid as "DURR IF WE LET GAYS MARRY PEOPLE WILL MARRY COWS NEXT"

And, of course, it doesn't even make any fucking sense. Like we really need to go forth and populate the fucking Earth? I THINK WE'RE JUST ABOUT FULL-UP, PAL. Irresponsible teenagers and adults fuck around and get pregnant and abandon, abuse, or put their children up for adoption and clog the systems while foster care and adoptive homes go through intensive screening (especially gay couples, who don't even have the option of adopting in some states) and wait on three-year-long lists before they're ~granted~ a child. That dude is so right, gays are totally pointless because they can't have children. Everyone infertile or childless shouldn't be married either, and YOU'RE NEXT. COME ON YOU GUYS, BABIES ARE PRODUCTS OF MARRIAGE AND THE ONLY ONES THAT MAKE LIFELONG COMMITMENT TO ANOTHER PERSON WORTHWHILE
