Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

Last Monday I ruled Asscrackistan as a kind and benevolent dictator (700 points). Last Sunday I gave change to a homeless guy (19 points). In November I ate my brussel sprouts (1 points). Last Thursday I punched eccentricfurry in the arm (-10 points). In February I farted in an elevator (-6 points).

Overall, I've been nice (704 points). For Christmas I deserve a Nintendo Wii!

Have you had an affair with Tiger Woods?


crime meme

Ok, I had to steal this one because there are just so many possibilities and it's an entirely likely scenario. I just don't know how you guys are going to pick just one.

Question is:

If you saw ME in the back of a police car what would you think I got arrested for?

Reply to me, in a comment, then fwd this on and see how many crimes you get accused of.
I love Change.org, it's the most awesome site ever, really, despite how infrequently I actually use it. I'm only a member of about half the causes on there, but only because they're the most important and urgent to me. I can't really donate, though I really wish I could, and I don't often agree with the little letters to your senator actions, but overall it's a very useful site. I really think it could change the world.
One of the causes I'm a member of is animal rights. Now I know I will never see eye-to-eye with the radical animal rights activists, but I do agree with many of their aims, and the abuse of animals around the world disgusts me. I believe animals do deserve many of our same rights, and that no animal, human or non-human, deserves to suffer, and that there is no such thing as needless suffering. I do not, however, agree with everything they consider "suffering". Without going into extreme detail, I will say one of those things is dying.
To die is not to suffer. We are all going to die someday. It's going to happen. Suck is up and get the fuck over it. What's more, it's not just us, it's every other thing on this planet. Even the mountains will someday "die" as they are destroyed by the forces of nature. Hell, this whole planet will be destroyed one day. And guess what? Many deaths will be at the hands of other living things. Yep. No matter what species you are, you're still in danger of something besides old age and the swine flu killing you.
In the rest of nature (and I say that because no matter how highly you think of yourself, humans are totally natural baby) this is usually pretty damn brutal. It's extremely gory, blood everywhere, and can take a while. Still, mother nature does take pity on those breathing their last breaths; adrenaline makes the whole thing pretty painless, physically. There's still the mental trauma of spending your last moments terrified.
But it happens, and it's nobody's fault really, the organizational unit that is the animal, can't help it. It needs to eat, and killing things is just how the smaller bits of it decided that was going to happen. Our DNA is really a total ass.
But dying is suffering apparently. And I kill things all the live-long day. My entire day is filled with murder. Joy-filled, delicious murder. And I don't think that makes me any less of an animal rights activist. I don't think it makes me a bad person even. And I don't think I should have to listen to that jack-ass who does the blog for the Animal Rights cause slam me all day for being a hypocrite or just plain not really an animal rights advocate. I don't think I should get told all fucking day what a horrible person I am and how I don't really care about the animals.
Some of us have dietary restrictions. And while I could take handfuls of pills I can afford even less than the pricey meat right now a day, and have to run like I'm training for the Olympics just to keep my 5'2" ass under 200lbs. for all the peanuts I'd have to eat, I'd much rather make all the little animals "suffer" for me. Because yeah, I am selfish, and they fucking are too.
And I do hate the way factory farms are run, and the way domesticated animals are treated, but I really do do all I can to stop that. It's just hard to stand in a crowd of people who hate you and try to protest with them. It's hard to volunteer for organizations when you don't conform to all their rules and see you as the enemy. But I send off the little e-mails to my governor and rack up those gratifying action points, and someday I know I'll have enough money to donate bundles to these organizations who hate me so every year. And in the meantime I'll adopt a kitty, and when I have a set schedule I'll volunteer at the shelter.
And yeah, I'll keep eating meat. And someday, something will get to eat me, even if I die of old age. I just hope I'm tasty. I have been fattening myself up lately.
I just have one final message for all the vegetarians and vegans: I envy you. I envy you every day of the fucking week. You can go to fancy restaurants and get absolutely gorgeous dishes that smell so wonderful, and are so full of flavors I've never even tasted. I can't even have onions on my hamburger. I hate meat so much anymore, though I crave it at least once a day. 5 more years and I'll hate it with every bone in my body. Sure there's the potatoes, and the carrots (though never cooked), and breads and cheeses. But the really good cheeses are so expensive. Not that meat is cheap. But bell peppers are such a beautiful color, and even guacamole looks like heaven. There's pineapples, and peaches, and eggplant. A purple food! Green foods even! I'm sure the color gets bland after a while. All that damn green, but it's so pretty to me. M&Ms are just not the same. The best I can say about my food choices is that I finally made it to spicy foods, beans and eggs. Imagine never being able to eat strawberries dipped in chocolate. Do you pity me enough yet to stop harking on me?
And I can't even freakin' comment cause I know it'll be deleted. Jerk.

So I've had a lot of financial stress in my life lately, and a few other kinds of stresses. I realized at some point though, that there's nothing I can do about these situations, I only have so much money and if I can't pay a bill then I can't pay a bill, and whatever's going to happen is going to happen. So I have a new method of dealing with this stress: LEVEL 37 NOT CARING! Cause seriously, why should I? What's going to happen if I do; if I don't? The same damn thing, that's what!

Now that I've stopped caring so much, I can probably go back to reading the FTM LJ group too. Seriously, save the drama for your llama.
So it's been two years now since I've been in college, after my first two attempts failed, and the job market here sucks ass. I'm thinking of going back to try once again to finish my theatre degree, after 2 years of actually doing the job I had been going to school for. Not only would it help me be near the front of the line for any jobs that do open up, but I would be making twice as much, just for having that little piece of paper.
But I'm not trying to go back to the same school I left, and the local state school insists that anyone with more than 60 hours of classes from another school have their basics. Well I failed my basics, so I have to take them again at a community college. Just my English 102 and College Algebra.
Now, I've been in the work force actually doing the job I'm getting that little piece of paper for, and I've certainly been using math. Math is part of the "technical" in technical theatre. But I had to take the assessment (which is a California thing) to determine which class I'm ready for. There's several levels, and the College Algebra level is 4. Yeah, I flunked that class 3 times at K-State, but I passed high school math. And you would think that since I've been in the workforce doing what I'd be doing with that degree, that I'd be using the math I learned in high school at least.
I made it to level 2. Elementary Algebra. The crap I barely passed my sophomore year of high school. Apparently I haven't used this shit in 7 years and forgot it all. 7 years. 7 years of doing a job you can do just fine without a degree but get paid extra for if you have one, and I haven't used this crap once. But I absolutely have to have it for that fucking degree.
And we as a nation are striving so hard to make sure everyone goes to college, and nobody ever drops out of high school. Because everyone absolutely needs all this crap we try and shove in their heads. I just wish I could get a bachelors through unschooling.

We Need Change

There are two gay marriage ideas in the top three for the gay rights category. Marriage rights are really important and all, but the right to have a job is more important, I think. Voting end on the 31st, and it needs just 24 more votes to make it to the next round of voting!
Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In July I punched talonthehand in the arm (-10 points). Last Friday I donated bone marrow to khaoskomix in a life-saving procedure (300 points). Last Tuesday I pushed thelatinist in the mud (-17 points). In January I committed genocide... Sorry about that, kaxeno (-5000 points). In June I caught a purse-snatcher who stole demiakratic's purse (30 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-4697 points). For Christmas I deserve a spanking!
