All these suicides just make me sick.

Please watch and share this video.

And remember, it gets better.

I wish there was more I could do to impress upon people how much their ignorance, intolerance, and hatred is killing people. It just makes me sick.

a man. But Lord knows where I'd be without my friends. This is just a thank you. To the few of you who have had numerous conversations with me recently about me & my issues, and to all of you who have ever given me a hug. If you haven't given me a hug, I suggest you do it. 'Cause I'm good at it.

Thank you to Anne & Aaron who let me move in when I thought I had no where else to go. Thank you to John, Scott, Jeremy & Melanie for being there when I needed someone to talk to. And thank you to Justin, for taking on the challenge that is dealing with me when I am at my worst, and for being my Call @ 4am guy. I truly appreciate you all.

Summer time and the wind is blowing outside in lower Chelsea
And I don't know what I'm doing in this city
The sun is always in my eyes
It crashes through the windows
And I'm sleeping on the couch
When I came to visit you
That's when I knew
That I could never have you
I knew that before you did
Still I'm the one who's stupid
And there's this burning
Like there's always been
I've never been so alone
And I've
Never been so alive

Look how great eye look!
26th-May-2009 07:26 pm - Okay, seriously...
Does anyone have pics of me from Jer & Ger's wedding or PenguiCon 2009? I can't seem to find a single one. Even links to collections would be helpful!

13th-May-2009 01:24 am - Wow.
Just Wow.

No, not WoW. :P~

If I uninstalled the Yahoo Toolbar and rebooted my laptop (running Vista)... How is it that Yahoo Toolbar is still installed? It's no longer in the list of programs I can uninstall, but it still exists when I run firefox. How can I get rid of it?

Also, I've turned of User Account Control, but it still nags me every time I reboot, and tells me I should turn it back on. Is there a way to prevent that?

Also, is "The Message Center" a Lenovo product or a Vista product? How do I get rid of that?

There's another one, but I forget what it is... any other thoughts on Vista Bloatware I can remove?

No, I haven't posted in forever. But I blame that on textLJ not working correctly for one reason or another.

That being said, I'm surprised this article hasn't been posted more. It means a lot to me, I'm not sure why it means as much as it does, but I'm pretty enthused. Progress!

And now, for the passing out.

I like when I wake up early, like before my alarm goes off, and I'm not at all tired. I'm sure it's related to going to bed early. Of course, I was EXHAUSTED last night... ;)
It's still my birthday. I haven't had any cake yet. ;)
anybody else wanna see Into The Woods tonight at the Mendelson?
It's still my birthday. I haven't had any cake yet. ;)
5th-Sep-2008 08:44 pm - None of that Sissy Crap
One of my former coworkers from my temp jobs just emailed this to me, and while I've seen it before, I still love it.
Are you tired of those sissy 'friendship' poems that always sound good, but never actually come close to reality? Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship. You will see no cutesy little smiley faces on this card - Just the stone cold truth of our great friendship.

1. When you are sad -
I will help you get drunk and plot revenge against the sorry bastard who made you sad.

2. When you are blue -
I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.

3. When you smile -
I will know you are plotting something that I just have to be involved with.

4. When you are scared -
I will rag your sorry ass about it every chance I get.

5. When you are worried -
I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whining.

6. When you are confused -
I will use little words.

7. When you are sick -
Stay the hell away from me until you are well again. I don't want whatever you have.

8. When you fall -
I will point and laugh at your clumsy ass.

This is my oath.... I pledge it to the end. 'Why?' you may ask; 'because you are my friend'.

Friendship is like peeing your pants, everyone can see it, but only you can feel the true warmth.

Send this to 10 of your closest friends,
Then get depressed because you can only think of 4.

I just participated in a Planned Parenthood Action Fund campaign to send condoms to the Republican National Convention. Join me! Click here:

Here's why I sent a condom to the convention:

It's hard to fully account for all the damage done over the past eight years of the Bush administration. From the reinstatement of the global gag rule back in Bush's first days in office to the most recent rule his administration has passed down which will make it harder for women to get comprehensive reproductive health information, the last eight years have been one long string of catastrophically bad decisions. Decisions that hurt women, men and families. The Bush administration just doesn't get it. Not one bit.

They don't get that young people need comprehensive, accurate sex education. They don't get that they don't belong in the exam room letting their politics get in the middle of a woman and her doctor. And they don't get that preventing sexually transmitted diseases starts with one simple item: a condom.

Want to join me in helping them get it, as only Planned Parenthood can? Simple. Send a condom to the Republican National Convention. $10 per specially printed condom -- and the best part? Every dollar we raise will help us elect a president who DOES get it, as well as help us fight to secure laws and policies that protect a woman's right to choose.

Just click here:
