Meme of the Day

Here's a shorty since I've already blabbed enough today. I don't know if it's a meme exactly or just 5 questions but I found it on a meme site, so I'm doing it anyway.

1. What's one thing you've always wanted to do, but never have?
Everything I have wanted to do that I've had the balls to do, I've pretty much done (apart from little things). I've always wanted to have the nerve to sky dive. But i've heard too many freak stories and I don't have the best luck in the world…

2. When someone asks your opinion about a new haircut/outfit/etc, are you always honest?
Depends on who's asking. If it's a good friend, I tell them the truth (in a nice way). But if I don't know them that well, I'll probably tell them it's great no matter what. I think that's pretty normal, right?

3. Have you ever found out something about a friend and then wished you hadn't? What happened?
Yes. A friend of mine slept with another friend of mine and she told me details about him that STILL pop into my brain unexpectedly when I'm talking to him. Ew.

4. If you could live in any fictional world (from a book/movie/game/etc.) which would it be and why?
The Buffyverse. I think I'd do pretty well since I know more about it than some of the characters. I'd become a watcher and go live with Andrew in Italy. And then I could smack Dawn over the head whenever I felt like it. I'm going to stop talking about this now before I show my full geek face to the world. It ain't pretty.

5. What's one talent/skill you don't have but always wanted?
That is EASY. I wish I could sing/have a stage presence. I have always wanted to be in a band and I have even tried (Faye knows all too well) but no matter how much I want it, there's no arguing the fact that I have ZERO musical talent. I can't even sing on key. It's retarded.

Take That, Facists!

I just got this email from The Human Rights Campaign:

“We did it! Just moments ago, the Federal Marriage Amendment lost
in the Senate by a stunning, bipartisan vote of 50-48. We won
this historic victory for two reasons: First, because the
politics of division don't work, and second: the votes were on
our side.

But the real reason we won is this: You. You and every
fair-minded American, gay or straight, who called, e-mailed,
faxed, visited, tracked down, and otherwise urged your Senators
not to write discrimination into the Constitution. Thank you.
This amazing moment belongs to all of us. Please, share this
victory with all the friends and family you talked into fighting
with us. We join in celebration with each of you. The campaign
to defeat this amendment has been a top priority for HRC and
with your amazing efforts over the course of many months, today
we won this round of the fight.”

They go on to talk about lots of other bills and events coming up that threaten Gay and Lesbian rights, but at least for now the immediate threat is gone. So hooray! We DO still have a say in our country from time to time. So we don't have to run for the border just yet…

Cockles

I can't believe it's only fucking Wednesday. This week is going to be the death of me.
So I haven't mentioned the bitch monster that works here with me. She's 24 years old and is my superior. That wouldn't be so bad if she weren't such a little princess and didn't treat me like crap. Case in point, this morning, at our weekly meeting, she decided (and everyone agreed, including me) that “we” need to organize the office, empty boxes, consolidate, move certain furniture etc. But then I realised that she meant RIGHT NOW and also, “we” meant ME. “Someone has to do it” she said. “I dont' care who”. But then everyone went back into their office and she reminded me that it needed to be started on this morning. So here I am in one of the shortest dresses I own, moving bookshelves, breaking down boxes and sprawling out on the floor doing manual labor. I love be everyone's butt monkey! And now it's 10:30 and I still haven't done any of the work that's in my “job description” this morning. Granted, I could be doing it RIGHT NOW instead of blogging. But fuck, I need a break, and I'm too pissed off at that spoiled little designer suited bitch to do any real work.
On a lighter note, I saw a free screening of I, Robot last night with Dom and Faye. It wasn't as bad as we'd expected. In fact, while certainly not being Shakespeare (or even Asimov), it was pretty damned entertaining right up until the end when it got all Jerry Bruckheimer-pointless slow motion-unrealistic gravity-defying stunts-y on us. Also, there was a pretty weird scene with a cat. I guess they were trying to establish what a nice guy Will Smith's character was. Whatever. Anyway, I probably wouldn't recommend paying full price for it. MAYBE a matinee if you've already seen everything else. But definitely worth a rent for a mindless evening involving beer.
And Faye promised to start a blog :P so I'm leaving the full review up to her for her first entry. Go Faye!
