Soon to be major plus-side of working at home: I will no longer have to listen to all of the middle-aged women around me yammering every second of every day. Today, they talked for twenty minutes on what colour each of their ceilings were in each room of their houses. WHY.

And then they wonder why they can barely make productivity. I hardly ever say anything, and have never even come close to being in danger of not making the productivity cut-off. These co-workers have also repeatedly lamented that they're going to be so bored and so lonely when having to work from home. OH DEAR GOD, WE MIGHT GET SOME WORK DONE, TOO. Me, I'm worried about my productivity going down, with all of the distractions at home (mostly Emmy and the TV). I guess we shall see.


btw I feel it's safe to note that the galaxy will implode if I don't get laundry folded tonight. and that I'm buying a bottle of vodka (along with two new, tightly claspable cat collars) when I pick Emmy up from daycare.

OH GOD SO REMEMBER (some of you won't) IN 2005 WHEN THERE WERE BATS IN OUR APARTMENT

YEAH THERE WAS JUST A BIRD IN HERE

A BIG GIANT BLACK BIRD

AET4Y8Q34GWOIKA

oh my goddddd you guys omg omg omg omg omg

I heard it YAPPING/chittering in the laundry area, and thought it was the CATS talking to each other. Then Dustin's all "UM BIRD" and I'm like "WHAAA" and then it comes FLYING IN HERE

Illy and Finey were both trying to get it. Dustin says Illy had it on top of the dryer, but let it go for some reason. I gave Dustin the broom and he smacked it, then Illy attacked it again. There are blood and feathers on the rug in front of the door, where he swept it outside after brushing Illy away from it.

HOW DID IT GET IN HERE

IDEC, BIRD, YOU JUST GTFO


so that's about enough excitement for today, amirite


EDIT: APPARENTLY NOT, BECAUSE THERE WAS ANOTHER BIRD IN HERE:





NEED MOAR CATS

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 can't be the only one seeing the irony here.

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

Lol so a conversation with Geena about the awful things we write as prepubescent ~*aspiring authors*~ led me to finding the Frank Burns/Percy Weasley I wrote in someone's anonymous post, uh...two years ago.


"Wait...I'm n-really not sure we ought to be doing this," his voice was slow and hesitant, but he made no move to move.

"Well, I'm in charge here, aren't I?" Frank's voice was low and amused, his lipless mouth pulled back to bare his teeth in what he clearly thought was a winning smile. "And I can do whatever-I-want." He sang under his breath.

Percy bit his lip, still looking trouble. "But the Minister - "

"Wants to sleep with you too, oh sure," Frank rolled his eyes. "Thanks for reminding me about that. I'm surprised you haven't already, could get some valuable information you know...help me bring him down so we can take over and I can be in charge c - I mean, we, can be in charge completely. You on your side, and I on mine. But it will really be one side, won't it."

It wasn't a question. Percy pulled back from the older man, eyes narrowed. "You think I'm some sort of...promiscuous person, do you? That I'll lean over for anyone to further my career? To further yours? Right then." He stood, angrily tucking his shirttail in and flicking his wand toward the hall closet. It burst open and he stretched out a hand to catch the cloak that had soared to him. He pulled it on as he turned his back on his lover and headed toward the front door. Frank finally realized what had happened and he jumped up.

"Why not?!" he demanded, as Percy shoved his wand into the inside pocket of his cloak without looking back. "It'll be better for everyone that way, don't you see? Don't you see how much better it is here with me in charge? We're so regulation that the toilet seats rise to attention at inspection! I thought you too craved that sense of order!"

"Oh, quite," said Percy dryly, still not looking back. His shoulders were hunched toward Frank as if he was repulsed by his presence. "Deceiving the ministry, my minister, my people? That's treason, I'm quite sure of it. I'm sorry," he paused, "Major Burns, but I'm not that sort of wizard."

And he was gone, Disapparated before the door had even finished closing behind him.















LOL WHAT indeed.

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
