Good Morning! Well, not so good for NC.

What the what?? 60% people?!? 60% of people in NC showed their true colors yesterday voting for Amendment one.

Muni I don't know if you'll be around, but I know you worked hard to fight this. Hugs and props to all of your efforts.

I can't bike to the station this morning because my back bike rack has slid down and is resting on top of my tire making it almost impossible to move the tire. I don't have the tools or the time this morning to fix it so H and I will work on it this evening.

    mmmmm....crusty bread. One of my weaknesses. I need to avoid anything with white flour and sugar. Those two things are my triggers for overeating. Boo

  • Morning!  That is truly awful, what is happening in NC.  I have no idea why we're sliding back, but it's so wrong.

    H worked the overnight, so the kitties are all piled in the bed with me.  Makes it difficult to get up and get going!  They're so snuggly.

    Ugh I have to leave to get the train. I wish I could say I'll be around later, but that's probably not going to happen until this evening. Happy day everyone!

    Good morning!

    Yum, crusty bread.  I don't even bother keeping it in the house, but now I want some.

  • That's pretty accurate, Cfas.  There are only three though.

    Meh, CA did it in 2008.  It gave me poor hopes for the rest of the country.
  • Eeek, LTB, I hope the two you saw were rogue and that you don't run into any others.

    [QUOTE]Bay -- Well, if you have large cats, three is still a lot of fluff. :-) Ugh. This quote on the NC amendment drives me bananas: "“Marriage remains an essential social institution which unites men and women to provide for the reproduction of the human race and to provide mothers and fathers for children." So, what about straight couples that don't want children? They shouldn't get married? Or rather, shouldn't be allowed to? I'm glad I live so close to DC. At least my gay friends who live there have the same rights as the rest of us.

    Sad day for NC, I agree.  People just make me sad somedays.

    Morning all.

    What is this world coming to?  And how can a person watch child porn without procuring it?  That doesn't make sense to me.
  • I saw yesterday that Rochester was 35 out of a 100 cities on the most "smutty" list.  Buffalo was 50th.  Orlando was number 1. 

    Who does these questionaires?
  • WTF??

    Child porn is right up there with necrophilia as one of those things that should not be open to question.  Just say no.

    I'm pretty sure non married couples are doing just fine procreating, marriage doesn't filp a switch to fertility.  Idiots. 

    Good Morning.  Work.  Blah. 
  • I agree Bay, on the child porn, that is a huge WTF, and scratch my head in disbelief.

    Its times like these that I'm really glad I am Canadian, although things arent always peachy here. Thats insane that they are moving backwards in some places still. And seriously, WTF to the child pornography law. HOW is it not wrong to watch it? ARGH.

    Just got back from walking the dogs, they are crazy. lol the big one is so much easier to walk than the little one. Have an hour to kill now before I have to start getting ready for work.

We had an issue with them in the basement because of our remodel. And they were huge! <strong>Giant, man-eating, black spiders</strong>. I wonder if they are relatives of the ones at your apartment? Since we've cleaned up the basement and had the pest control people come out, I haven't seen them. But I'm afraid they are lurking somewhere ready to eat me.

    [QUOTE]Yeah Bay. You can't really compare the two. I just don't know how the judges could make this ruling. Granted, I don't know a ton about child porn or IT services, but I feel like it should be illegal to view it as well as 'own' it. <strong>I mean, I'm sure it's not easy to stumble upon like the average porn site (for example, the White House website is .gov, not .com). So it's not like you would see it by accident.</strong>

    This is why google is my friend.

    There's a lot of sad floating around because of NC and NY today. I don't understand how watching child porn isn't procuring it either. Supply/demand, no?

    morning,

    Went to boot camp.   Apparently they moved the venue because he thought there would be rain.  Myself and a few others didn't get the memo.  By them time we found out and drove to the new place there would have only been 25 minutes left in the class.  I really annoyed.  I signed up online, so they have my email.

    Not all is lost, I did go to the gym and worked out.   I will make up the class tomorrow night.   More annoyed because I've been up since 4am (thanks to my loudly snoring dog)




    Oh and I can't believe 60% of NC actually voted like that.  Shocked I tell you.






    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.

    I'm glad that Nick came back but I'm not happy about Schmidt and Cici. I wonder if we'll get to see what happened with Nick and Caroline next episode.
  • Morning.  I'm so glad tomorrow is my Friday.  I'm burnt out here and I keep gaining weight.  I need to stop weighing myself all the time.  It's just depressing me.

    Ray of sunshine, that's me all right.

  • Adamar, are you weighing yourself every day?  I've heard that way lies madness, because you're bound to fluctuate a little bit every day.

  • GAH! Midge!!! Some of us have to wait until the weekend to see this stuff!!


    heya all. My friend posted this picture on her FB page:




    I thought it might an interesting survey to ask how many of the people involved in the anti-gay marriage protest were also involved in the civil rights picture on top. I'm going to guess a lot.

    While I am disappointed in the result in North Carolina, I am not the least bit surprised by it. Considering the people in that state... Not surprising in the least.  It's the poorest, one of the least educated states in the union. Gotta love them. (not)
  • Snippy, I don't normally watch it on time either! Sorry. :) I tried to label it accordingly.
