Let's have an update on my life! Fandom and Real, because that's how I roll.

1. I forgot how much I like Jann Arden. I've been downloading all of her old music (I own the CDs but they are at home in Canada) and wow. "Good Mother" especially is so fantastic. It always, always makes me cry because it describes so perfectly how I feel about my parents.

//I've got, money in my pocket
I like the colour of my hair
I've got a friend who loves me
Got a house, I've got a car

I've got a good Mother
and her voice is what keeps me here
feet on ground, heart in hand, facing forward
be yourself


Cardboard masks of all the people I have been
Thrown out with all the rusted, tangled, dented, goddamned miseries
You can say I'm hard to hold
but if you knew me, you'd know

I've got a good Father
and his strength is what makes me cry
feet on ground, heart in hand, facing forward
be yourself

See why it makes me cry? Oh, *sniff* I miss my Mum & Dad so much. Can't wait to see them in June!!

2. I'm re-watching Dawson's Creek and OMG, the chemistry between Pacey and Joey was there all the way back in S1. Mostly because you can tell Katie and Josh wanted to ravage each other soooo badly, and plus, you can tell that Katie hates James Van Der Beek SO SO much. It's splendidly awesome.

How in heaven's name did the writers of that show EVER think Dawson would appeal to a mass audience? Or, for that matter, to anyone? I mean, for the last time, SHUT UP, Dawson. Signed, the world.

3. Continuing with Weight Watchers. It's getting a bit easier, though for a while there I was gaining and losing the same 4-5 pounds which is fucking frustrating. What I'm doing now is sticking to a few main things: I eat mainly fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds and wholemeal breads and pastas. BUT, and this is weird for me, I'm letting myself have small portions of my favourite foods -- like extra mature cheddar and peanut butter and good salad dressing. It's the best. So a day would be:

Breakfast - a smoothie made with frozen blueberries, frozen raspberries, frozen cherries, strawberries, skimmed milk, 2 tbsp wheatgerm and 1 tbsp flaxseed

Lunch - a piece of cheese, mixed peppers, cauliflower, crispy parma ham, cherry tomatoes and some sort of dip

Dinner - wholegrain pasta with a tomato based sauce and a side salad of mixed grated carrot, crumbled sesame crispbreads, veggies and light feta with REAL olive oily dressing.

SO good and I'm actually steadily losing weight. I mean, so far. Plus I'm doing Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred almost every day. It kicks my ass so hard.

4. My fic writing is not going well at all. I can't seem to get it. I am nowhere near Buffy at the moment so can't edit any chapters of By the Rivers Dark to make them fit for viewing. I am trying though. I want to write BSG fic, but don't feel worthy. I have a Titanic fic that I'm almost finished, but I mean, who wants to read that? I'm very sure that I will crank out a Pacey/Joey DC fic circa Season 5 (AKA the season of HELL AND FORGETFULNESS) that will fix that season of HELL AND FORGETFULNESS.

5. I am obsessed with Ray LaMontagne.

6. The constant media attention on Kelly Clarkson's weight is depressing me. Why is that what it always comes down to for a girl? Why is she always measured by that, like it somehow defines her worth? Poor, poor Kelly. I mean, I sense she doesn't give a shit, but that's how she rolls. I, on the other hand, would be crippled by the hatred and bile out there. And why? For what? Just because she has gained a few pounds? Fucking HELL.

That's all I've got for now. I think the rant finished me off.

This guy, obviously delivering something to the office next door, keeps walking by my window and making the ORAL SEX sign to me. You know, wiggling tongue, fingers in a V-Shape and ugh ugh ugh why why why? His friend, the other charming gentleman, walks behind him, smiling and laughing.


I love the smell of sexual harassment in the afternoon.

{Obama's speechwriter and the 'boys will be boy's defense of sexism'}

Can I just ask how this douchebag still has a job?

And who do I write to, to get him fired?

(In other news of the non-feminist variety... I am interested in writing some sort of Roswell fic. Does anyone know if the fandom is active AT ALL? I want to do some sort of Buffy/Liz epic again, because I am that way inclined. Any thoughts would be welcome!)

What a startling beautiful video. We should never forget our ancestors, these women who have fought so hard for us. Ghosts now, along side us, still whispering, shouting, urging us on.

A message for Sarah Palin.

Watch. Share.

Although it angers me to see that dumb-shit smile on her face, I kind of love when CNN post pictures like that of Palin next to articles like this: {Palin blasts Obama for his views on abortion}. Women should look especially hard at how SHE views this issue. I mean, we already know that she put her own views ahead of her daughter's happiness, so I doubt the average American woman's right to privacy over her own body will mean much to Sarah Palin.

Not to mention:

From {http://edition.cnn.com}

"The notion that legitimate criticism of Sen. Obama's record and positions could be compared to Gov. George Wallace, his segregationist policies and the violence he provoked is unacceptable and has no place in this campaign. I am saddened that John Lewis, a man I've always admired, would make such a brazen and baseless attack on my character and the character of the thousands of hardworking Americans who come to our events to cheer for the kind of reform that will put America on the right track. I call on Sen. Obama to immediately and personally repudiate these outrageous and divisive comments that are so clearly designed to shut down debate 24 days before the election. Our country must return to the important debate about the path forward for America."

Shortly after, Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton released a statement on the Lewis comments.

"Sen. Obama does not believe that John McCain or his policy criticism is in any way comparable to George Wallace or his segregationist policies," Burton said. "But John Lewis was right to condemn some of the hateful rhetoric that John McCain himself personally rebuked just last night, as well as the baseless and profoundly irresponsible charges from his own running mate that the Democratic nominee for president of the United States 'pals around with terrorists.' "

THAT IS RIGHT! Because, my God, people were shouting "KILL HIM" in the Republican rallies, and that scares the living shit right out of me. How is listening without comment, and therefore, IMO, condoning those sentiments, "legitimate criticism"? Has McCain completely lost his mind?

Another thing.

Why is Sarah Palin so intent on protecting unborn children even to the point of denying abortion to victims of incest and rape, but every other day, I see a new photograph of her smiling over a dying moose that is covered with blood? I mean, seriously?

yes. this.

This is very awesome

[livejournal.com profile] a2zmom on partial-birth abortions and the right wing crazies who would have you believe that women use them for "convenience".

As I said in my comments, what's even sadder than the ignorance? Is the fact that the Republican party DEPEND on that ignorance to push their sick, woman-hating agenda.
