A Hole In The World

I can’t believe I’m going to say this, in fact I may even deny it later because it’s horrifying to me, but I firmly and totally believe that Lindsay Lohan is right.

I was over at Lindsay Daily, trying to find the admin’s email, when I read THIS. I can’t believe it, Lindsay sounds so… level headed, lol. Now, I’m not a big fan of Lindsay – in fact, I don’t really pay much attention to her (she’s pretty, but there ain’t a lot to her, imo) but when someone’s right, you say so, even if you’d like to see them dropped into that hole full of coffins from Angel. Yes, I am a nerd.

It was some of the responses on the blog that caught me off guard, and here;s my two cents about the whole thing as commented on the post:

Uh, I’m sorry, I don’t remember the act of deluded Christian sin being something enforceable by a democratic government as an actual crime. If it were, it would be against the law to lie, talk back to your mother and wish you had your neighbor’s car. Granted, I generally don’t comment on fansites but this caught my eye and when I read through it I found myself agreeing with a lot of what Lindsay had to say.

Just because it’s in the bible, -and yes I know this is an unpopular opinion- doesn’t mean it’s right, either. This is the same book that was used to condemn ‘witches’, to justify black slavery, to steal land and kill off natives and even to condemn the Jews ( oh yeah, look it up ).

The bible is 2000 years old, even with the best intentions it was written before democracy, before women’s lib, when slavery was A-OK and women/children were the property of men. Just the notion that we can take anything more than implied wisdom from this book is ridiculous, but to each his own, the only issue I’ve got with it is that it’s used to force other people into a state of second class citizenship by taking away their rights, including the right to love, be with and marry whoever you choose. You can’t believe in true love and believe every word of the bible at the same time – it’s just not possible unless you’re really deluded. I’m in no way against the bible, I just think people should start using their noggins. If you believe in God, and believe your God is a loving deity, then judge not, dudes, he said it for a reason. See? He knew we couldn’t be trusted, lol.

To be honest, I don’t really follow Lindsay’s career or life, etc., but I have heard that she’s come out about dating a woman, and I think her fans if no one else should be supportive of her. Oh, and I agree with the statements about Palin – that woman scares the bejeesus out of me.

Honestly, shouldn’t this be common sense by now? I can’t be a ‘maverick’, here.

Let Dragon Work For You

Holy Loki, son of Odin, this is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long, long time! I’ve got issues reading because of my eyes, so I have a software that reads text files to me and because of that I’m familiar with reading software but I’ve never heard of a software that will actually type for you – until now! I can’t wait to be able to try out Dragon Naturally Speaking 10 Preferred or Dragon Naturally Speaking 10 Standardbecause with my arthritis being as bad as it is, I’d love to be able to say what I need to say and get my blog onto the page without having to kill my hands to do it. Basically, with Dragon all I’d have to do is talk – how cool is that?

If you have a minute and want to see for yourself, you can either check out the NY Times Review of DNS10 and find out what NY Times had to say about Dragon, or you can poke around in this blog post and check out my lovlies, aka the videos embedded here to help you out. Hopefully it will better illustrate what Dragon does, and how it can help you with your typing and blogging.

Personally, I’m excited over the concept of being able to type at up to 150 words per minute without errors and without hurting my hands and wrists and getting tired over something that should be simple and enjoyable, like blogging. In fact my joints were screwed up as bad as they are now by my constant typing over the course of 15 years, so this would be perfect for me!

Going Non Verbal

You know, I’ve seen other people try and give eachother a ‘look’ to hook a potential date, something sultry and sexy or perky and creepy, and I’ve found that the best way to get yourself some Victory Hair is to be in your own little world. Seriously, you’d be surprised how many times I’ve been hit on just doing my own thing, not even realizing that the guy or girl was around. I don’t know if it’s because I looked easy to confuse (lol) or because confidence is sexy, or because the women in my family are cursed with enormous juggs, but somehow I’ve never really had to be the one to initiate.

So, I’m no queen of the pick up line, and while I’ll never be the champ of the outrageously fun Ultimate Flirting Championship
Extreme Style by VO5 (seriously, you need to go play that game – make time, I’ll wait.), I’ve had my share of what can only politely be called romance, lol. Which is a feat in itself because, honestly, I’m not particularly good looking – or, you know, good looking at all – but I suppose there’s no accounting for taste? I guess there are more breast men in the world than I’d thought, lol.
