I just read this lovely essay posting by the Brat Queen about what's going on in the US with the anti-marriage for all demonstrations.

It's lovely and made me cry. This person has written many, many beautiful essays about issues like these. Makes me feel like a stammering idiot compared to her. Just a wonderful writer. I recommend everyone read it. It may be an eye opener. I feel like printing out multiple copies of it and posting it all over campus or giving them out to people.

I also read this editorial today about Bush's threat to amend the Constitution. Somehow it makes me feel better, even if 34 states in the US have passed laws declaring who and who cannot marry.

and it's gone. My federal tax refund was deposited into my bank account last night around 3am. So I went and ordered stuff. Of course the things I ordered won't be here for a while.

I pre-ordered Queer as Folk season 3 and Pretear vol 3. Pretear is an anime. Those won't ship until Feb 24th.

I ordered an external enclosure for a hard drive. Basically I'm making my own portable hard drive to use as back up and to take files to work easily. I'm buying the hard drive from a coworker this week.

I also ordered the FIRM exercise thingy but we'll see how that goes. I placed the order, including the $20 for UPS shipping and then I read the FAQ and find that it takes 4-6 weeks to get it. I don't know how true that it is, but I find it hard to believe. UPS ground doesn't take that long, so I guess it takes them that long to gather everything up? We'll see if I get charged and how it goes. I might just call them up and see how true that time is.

I so meant to go to the library today and Borders and it didn't happen. Bleh. I'm in a funk and that affects my motivation. I'm going to go to the library either tomorrow or next Friday, depending on how I feel. I don't want to be shut indoors all weekend, so I'll try and get it and go somewhere. I do have to go out tonight and take back some pop cans and get more pop. I've ordered food so I'm off to wait for it to come. Delivery is such a wonderful thing.

WTF?!

So I'm feeling really depressed right now. About anything is making me start to tear up. I think the biggest factors are PMS and the fact that I haven't seen a friendly face outside work for a while now. I feel like people are avoiding me, which may or may not be true.

It doesn't help that on the way home from the Village Corner some asshole threw a bouncy ball at me from a car, then wished me a Happy Valentine's Day. So right at the moment I'm feeling homicidal and depressed, which is not a good combination. I wish I had taken my ID to the store cause I'm craving alcohol. It's a good thing I didn't take it with me. Of course when I get home, Folle333 is leaving to drink and I almost felt like inviting myself. Oh well

In another huge WTF?! moment, the WB has decided they're canceling Angel after this season. I know, it's TV but next year will be the first year without a Joss Whedon show on the air. That is so fucked up. Joss makes the best shows and there aren't any that compare. Now I have nothing to make up for the fuck ups Smallville makes. Ugh.
