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

So today I read in the local newspaper that one of the guys charged in a shooting last year was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left for dead.

McFarland was scheduled to be sentenced March 25 in Clinton County District Court after pleading guilty to a charge stemming from a 2008 shooting incident at a mobile home park near DeWitt, Iowa.

My husband's father, stepmother, and two younger sisters live in DeWitt. In that mobile home park. When the shooting occurred (some guys in a car, firing into a trailer from it), his little sister Danielle was in her bedroom folding her laundry. Did I mention they live right next door, on the next lot, like thirty feet away from the trailer that was being fired into? Yeah.

Small towns in Iowa, huh?

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.

FOR NOW.

Just finished watching The Skeleton Key with Kelly and Geena. Geena was very disappointed that a) ghost raccoons didn't do it and b) the song during the credits likely did not contain the lyrics "deep in my heart/there's a gremlin".

At least she's off of the gay porn pop-up book idea.

Man so I guess I have weird dreams in California, too.

The first time, I dreamed [livejournal.com profile] hi_falootin's Mike was living with someone with Down's Syndrome, and had to go to court to try to prove the relationship was consensual and okay. Rayn was his lawyer, Darcy the other attorney trying to press the incompetance of Down Syndrome guy. (Brain never gave me a name.) I think it was determined that the relationship was okay, and off they went.

The second one wasreally scary and creepy )

Thankfully, the shops, streets, and alleys that were all in this dream are also in my Iowa hometown. Yay! :\


So we're going to have pancakes this morning (blue ones, maybe?? :D) and then see about doing some other stuff. Golden Gate walking seems the most likely, and yay! BUT BUT I ONLY HAVE 463 PICTURES LEFT ON MY CAMERA. Note to self: bring moar batteries. I also woke up with a Matchbox 20 song in my head; the dream broken by the sound of water in pipes and if it's just that you're weak, we can talk about it. HOKAY. This bed in the guest room of Kelly's parents house is really comfy, except when I woke up at like five and had to use the bathroom, I came back and had to turn on the light and stand here and make the bed, because I somehow short-sheeted myself or something. One blanket was on the floor, the other two tangled and scattered from hell to breakfast.

Okay, now is time to get ready for brekkie and the day. I sure hope that giant robot from Monsters Vs. Aliens doesn't go a-bridge-destroyin while we're out there.

Sooooo driving in post-Christmas traffic in a huge city is fun, right? We went to Davenport to try to do Emmy's Build-A-Bear (which went pretty well, she chose a grey ballerina kitty and fell asleep in the car with it)...and it was packed, of course. Getting out of the parking lot proved interesting.

We got in the car, and then couldn't back up because there was this old lady in a car directly behind ours. I thought she might've been waiting for another car to pull out so she could have their spot, but we couldn't see anyone else moving. There were lots of people walking in the middle of the roads though, so it would've been hard to back out, plus a lot of cars going around this old lady's car and zipping by. We couldn't get out because she was RIGHT behind us, and we sat there waiting, until Dustin finally opened his door and was like, "Um, can you move your car? Please?"

So, this old lady looks toward us, sees both of us looking, kind of throws her hands up and shakes her head in exasperation, puts her car into reverse and looks behind her...then proceeds to stomp on the gas and back up directly into the front of the truck that was waiting behind her.

UM OKAY

So then she pulls forward, gets out of her car, and goes over to the window of the truck, where another lady (35ish) had been driving and was now looking at her like "......". I saw the old lady start talking, flap her hands in our direction, then go back toward her car. The one in the truck got out and looked at the front of hers, called something about it only hitting her bumper, and got back in her truck. No, there wasn't any damage, but how did we enjoy that "UM HAY IT'S THAT GUY'S FAULT I BACKED INTO YOUR TRUCK EVEN THOUGH I WAS LOOKING OVER MY SHOULDER, BECAUSE I WAS SITTING BEHIND THEIR CAR AND NOT MOVING AND HE RUSHED ME".

Happy fucking New Year to you too, lady.
