10:38 pm: Reading...
I just wanted to let you know I've not fallen into a hole.

Sometime around the beginning of August, someone introduced me to the Southern Vampire Series by Charlaine Harris. I bought the first book.

I just finished the 9th book and can't wait for more.

Oh yeah, and there's that whole school thing I 'should' be doing. Having said that, does anyone else have any reading recommendations?

11:12 pm: Gay Marriage Field Trip
I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on this:

Dated 10/13/08 From: HERE

First-graders in San Francisco took a field trip to City Hall to celebrate the marriage of their lesbian teacher on Friday, but opponents of same-sex marriage in the state say the field trip was an attempt to “indoctrinate” the students, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

The field trip was suggested by a parent at the Creative Arts Charter School, and the school said the trip, where students tossed rose petals on their teacher and her wife as they left City Hall, was academically relevant.

"It really is what we call a teachable moment," said Liz Jaroslow, the school’s interim director, according to the newspaper. She said same-sex marriage had historic significance. "I think I'm well within the parameters."

California will vote on Nov. 4 on Proposition 8 which seeks to ban same-sex marriage in the state, and supporters of the measure say the field trip shows that allowing same-sex marriage will mean it’s taught to school children, the newspaper said.

"It's just utterly unreasonable that a public school field trip would be to a same-sex wedding," said Chip White, press secretary for the Yes on 8 campaign, told the Chronicle. "This is overt indoctrination of children who are too young to have an understanding of its purpose."



Personally, I support gay marriage completely, but even I question it's 'field day' status...

Just when I thought I couldn't hear another political clip, I was sent this:

It was day 3 of the Republican National Convention, and gay love was in the air!

Really you only need to watch the first bit...

09:54 pm: A successful businessman flew to Vegas for the weekend to gamble. He lost
the shirt off his back, and had nothing left but a quarter and the second
half of his roundtrip ticket -- If he could just get to the airport he
could get himself home.

So he went out to the front of the casino where there was a cab waiting.
He got in and explained his situation to the cabbie. He promised to send
the driver money from home, he offered him his credit card numbers, his
drivers license number, his address, etc. but to no avail.

The cabbie said (adopt appropriate accent), "If you don't have fifteen
dollars, get the hell out of my cab!" So the businessman was forced to
hitch hike to the airport and barely caught his flight.

One year later the businessman, having worked long and hard to regain his
financial success, returned to Vegas and this time he won big. Feeling
pretty good about himself, he went out to the front of the casino to get a
cab ride back to the airport.

Well who should he see out there, at the end of a long line of cabs, but
his old buddy who had refused to give him a ride when he was down on his
luck.

The businessman thought for a moment about how he could make the guy pay
for his lack of charity, and he hit on a plan. The businessman got in the
first cab in the line, "How much for a ride to the airport?" he asked.

"Fifteen bucks," came the reply.

"And how much for you to give me a blowjob on the way?"

"What?! Get the hell out of my cab."

The businessman got into the back of each cab in the long line and asked
the same questions, with the same result.

When he got to his old friend at the back of the line, he got in and asked
"How much for a ride to the airport?" The cabbie replied "fifteen bucks."
The businessman said "Okay," and off they went.

Then, as they drove slowly past the long line of cabs the businessman gave
a big smile and thumbs up sign to each driver.

08:41 pm: The Cencus taker...
A census taker in a rural area went up to a farmhouse and knocked. When a woman came to the door, he asked her how many children she had and their ages. She said, "Les' see now, there's the twins, Sally and Billy, they're thirty-two. And the twins, Seth & Beth, they're twenty-six. And the twins, Penny and Jenny, they're twenty-four... "

"Hold on!" said the census taker, "Did you get twins EVERY time?"

The woman answered, "Heck no, there were hundreds of times we didn't get nothin."

I just found out that my breathing medicine is being discontinued due to "environmental impact". Now I'm as environmental friendly as I can be, but I hardly see how doing away with a medication that I (and probably millions others) take twice daily and as needed will compete with all of the other aerosol pollutants. You guys can call me an idiot, but shouldn't we 'fix' some of the luxury pollutants before we do away with valuable medications? Just wondering...
