School & More Reading

Reg­is­tra­tion clos­es tomor­row, so I have to decide before the end of the day whether or not I’m tak­ing class­es for sum­mer semes­ter or not. Bah. I want a break, but if I’m not in school my stu­dent loans come out of defer­ment.

I’ve been reading–and lov­ing–Patri­cia Brig­gs’ Mer­cy Thomp­son books. They’re a lot of […]

Poly? Please to take survey!

Danielle Duplassie, MA, RCC, a Doc­tor­al Stu­dent in Human Sex­u­al­i­ty at The Insti­tute for the Advanced Study of Human Sex­u­al­i­ty, sent a request to one of the lists I’m on tonight seek­ing polyamorous peo­ple to take a sur­vey that is part of her research. It won’t even take you five min­utes. Go clicky!

Edit­ed: Whoops! […]

Monday and R.I.P. George Carlin

I guess every­body has heard, by now, that we lost George Car­lin last night. I’ve seen many arti­cles about him today, but I think Susie Bright did the best job of catch­ing his spir­it.

Today was a very Mon­­day-ish Mon­day. I’m grumpy and noth­ing feels right. The girl is off spend­ing time with my fam­i­ly, […]

Singing the Joys of WordPress

I have to say, I do love the fact that Word­Press allows me to write posts and sched­ule them to post them­selves to cov­er days when I don’t feel up to blog­ging. I’ve been hav­ing a lot of trou­ble view­ing the mon­i­tor lately–my eyes feel like they’re danc­ing and noth­ing stays in focus, lead­ing to […]

Blah

That’s pret­ty much my opinoin today. Blah. Blah blah blah. I could­n’t wake up enough to dri­ve safe­ly, so I missed an appoint­ment that will take months to resched­ule.

For every assign­ment we do in the tech writ­ing course I’m tak­ing, we turn in a rough draft and receive two peer reviews and feed­back from […]

Civil Rights Win in Florida

Months ago, I post­ed about Ponce de Leon High School in Flori­da ban­ning the wear or dis­play of any kind of gay pride sym­bols or words, claim­ing that they indi­cat­ed involve­ment in an “ille­gal orga­ni­za­tion.” I lat­er found out that the prob­lem start­ed last fall, when a les­bian stu­dent com­plained that she was being harassed. […]

Cohousing?

I’m work­ing on my final project for the tech­ni­cal writ­ing course, which is a com­par­i­son of cohous­ing devel­op­ments to sin­­gle-fam­i­­ly and more tra­di­tion­al mul­ti-fam­i­­ly hous­ing. I’m find­ing it dif­fi­cult to find any of the books I want to use as ref­er­ences in the library (school or two coun­ties). Do any of you who are local […]

School Happy

I final­ly got the grades from the first tech­ni­cal writ­ing assign­ment I turned in last week, and the peer reviews I did on two of my class­mates’ rough drafts. I got full points for all of them!

I was wor­ried about one of the peer reviews, because the per­son chose to do a set of […]

Weekend Update

We had a very nice week­end, fair­ly qui­et for me (as usu­al). Katie went out with her beau Fri­day night, and Sam and I final­ly got to see the first sea­son 2 Torch­wood episode, “Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang.” It was worth the wait! I won­der how much BBC Amer­i­ca bowd­ler­ized it? Unfor­tu­nate­ly, we don’t have […]

Books People Don’t Read

Tak­en from

These are the 106 books most often marked as “unread” by LibraryThing’s users. As in, they sit on the shelf to make you look smart or well-round­ed. Bold the ones you’ve read, under­line the ones you read for school, ital­i­cize the ones you start­ed but did­n’t fin­ish.
