WEEKEND FORECAST: ASTRONOMY UP THE ASS

Yeah, while everyone I know is out having the best weekend ever, I am going to be at home curled up on the couch with that fucking astronomy book. Pushing the cats off my lap, getting distracted by anything and everything, and then panicking on Sunday, which will lead to me cramming and then taking the test so I can be done before the Oscars come on. *sigh* It's eerie how well I can predict the future.

Oh yeah, and I'm going to make Aaron take me to see Mona Lisa smile tonight, it's playing at the discount theater and there had better be A LITTLE BIT OF FUN in my weekend.

I was disappointed to read that "Edwards said gay marriage ?is an issue that ought to be decided in the states. I think the federal government should honor whatever decision is made by the states.?" Um, Bullshit, have some fucking balls for God's sake. If you leave it up to the states, then discrimination is still going to take place and it's the Federal Government's job to set forth a sort of precedent or be a role model as such in terms of equality. It's time to face the fact that this country is suffering from a raging case of homophobia and fucking do something about it. Put an end to the arguing and do what's right. If you make gay marriage legal think about all the positive things that could come from that. Not only will millions of people be happy and able to fulfill a dream, but think of the possibilities regarding adoption and foster care. Millions of kids could be granted care they need and deserve in the homes of married gay couples. What's the worst that could happen? These kids, (OUR FUTURE) might come out of the experience as tolerant, accepting adults? The horrors!

And also, I saw on that Affleck's pals are worried about him because he's lonely you know, I laughed out loud when I read that. I was single for 8 motherfucking years. You wanna talk lonely? The guy is damn bizillionaire, and can have any fucking woman he wants, I don't think a dating drought is what he's suffering from. A case of the "woulda coulda shoulda's" maybe. Maybe even a broken heart, but lonliness... not so much.

I'm full of opinions today, no? I was disappointed by Survivor AND The Apprentice last night. I really thought Colby would go, I like him, but I like Richard Hatch too... It was kinda neat to see him lose that smugness he had for a while. I guess catching the most and the biggest fish isn't as important this time around. He should have tried another angle. And I really think Trump should have fired Nick (is that his name? the red headed asshole?) I can't stand him. I don't like that blonde chick who oversees one of the teams either... I can't remember her name, but she's a total ice queen.

I finished my paper for my english class last night, and have 3 and half more chapter sections to do in math, and a chapter and half and a study sheet for astronomy. Crimony, as well as a fucking test to take before Monday. *sigh*

No friday five this week, so I'll use one from last year at this time.
THE FRIDAY FIVE

1. What is your favorite type of literature to read (magazine, newspaper, novels, nonfiction, poetry, etc.)?

I am a magazine junkie, but I actually love reading books. It has to be written in the first person for me to really be able to get into it, I love love love autobiographies, but typically only if it's someone I know of, otherwise I get bored.

2. What is your favorite novel?

I adore Wally Lamb, he wrote She's Come Undone, and I Know This Much Is True. He is seriously my favorite writer of all time, both of those books are an undertaking, as they are thick. Even though it's a challenge, I love them to pieces. I have read both books 2-3 times, and usually try to wait to start again until I forget how they end. Unfortunately it's not happening so easy, the last time I read them was in 2001 and I still remember both endings clearly.

My other favorite novels are not necessarily novels... can non-fiction be a novel? Torey Hayden wrote a handful of books about working with developmentally delayed children, most often mutes. She writes the books in such a way that it leaves you feeling almost empowered enough to give it a shot yourself. I always end up thinking "I could do that!" but in reality have zero desire to work with kids who at age 10 still wear diapers and such. It's just not my thing.

oh yeah, in high school, I was obsessed with Keeping Secrets by Suzanne Somers and Elvis and Me by Priscilla Presley... I read both of those no fewer than 10 times.

3. Do you have a favorite poem? (Share it!)

The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost Best.Poem.Ever.


4. What is one thing you've always wanted to read, or wish you had more time to read?

East of Eden... The Grapes of Wrath both by Steinbeck, and On the Road by Kerouac... just have never sat down and done it. Oh yeah, and Catch-22 too.

5. What are you currently reading?

Astronomy: A Beginner's Guide to the Universe 4th Edition (2001), by Chaisson and McMillan ... and I DON'T reccomend it. ( how the fuck do you spell reccomend anyway?)



My favorite thing about asa is his pink nose



How could you not love this face?



Funny how sometimes she seems so angelic... until 3 am when she's running laps over Aaron and I and making Asa scream as she bites him. Aahhh, kittenhood.
