"And the Catholic News site has another
link to a BBC article about the "Rev" Parry, titled Sex-change
pastor sues Christian centre. In this article besides the suit,
we also learn that the journalist are also struggling with their
"I got up reluctantly this morning,
already dreading the inevitable stand-off between myself and the
Costco box of Snickers in the freezer. Brushing my teeth, I stared
myself down in the mirror.
"You are in control of your own breakfast
foods," I told myself. "Eat the cottage cheese. You love
cottage cheese! If you don't eat the cottage cheese it will go bad.
Don't be a cottage cheese waster.""
"Well it seems I didn't learn from
my previous incident involving my cat Isaac, and a mean little mistress
known as Karma.
Today I found a new way to torment my cat. While typing away on
the computer I happen to glance over to see my cat sitting on the
treadmill. Actually laying on the conveyer belt/tread part of this
piece of exercise equipment, practically begging to me to do something
about it. How could I not sneak up and turn it on?? So I did. I
turned it on. Now keep in mind, this treadmill is new, and his exposure
to it is limited...I don't even know if he's seen it in motion before....
but he sure has now. }:-) That boy shot straight up in the air.
Bwah ha ha!!! And then he tried to work up the courage to come back
and investigate it afterwards (because of course I shut it off immediately,
so he wasn't too sure what the hell happened). So after a few fright
aftershocks (stretching to look, having it turn on, him pulling
back. repeat.) he finally just decided it was best that he walk
away. I once again scooped him up in my arms like a doting mother
and told him I loved him and all that good stuff"
"I spent many weekends getting my informational
website up for prospective employers to use. This site contains
a page with my CV, a page linking all of my syllabi, a page with
my writing sample abstract and a link to its PDF, and a page about
my teaching philosophy. The site would not win any awards for creativity
or flair, but it is a clean-looking site and provides quite a bit
"Had a talk this morning with a gal
who I knew while growing up. We're polar opposites -- I finished
college, live with my BF and we are discussing getting a dog. She
didn't make it past junior year of high school and is married with
three kids. Honestly, the conversation this morning re-affirmed
all the reasons I'm on birth control. After spending half an hour
going on about how she hates not having a life and how much time
and energy the kids suck up and that her husband doesn't lift a
finger to help her, she suggests that I should start thinking about
having kids. After a description like that, why would I want to?"
"Liam is getting teeth. Such a short
and simple sentence for such an awful, screaming experience. I'm
not sure whether to give him a teething ring or call a priest. He
wakes up in the middle of the night and his poor little gums are
sore and he's bound and determined to let everyone else in the house
know it. And a couple times I think he even tried to reach the people
two doors down."
"Firstly, if someone wants to wear
a damned bit of cloth over their hair, so what? By all cultural
standards, around the world that I am aware of, this implies nothing
offensive, mean, nasty, immoral or corrupt about a person, nothing
that is, in comparison to American proclivities to wear basically
nothing at all, French habits of wearing berets and other stupid
clothes, the British habit of wearing suits that well, really shouldn't
be worn and the list could go on. Its just a bit of cloth."
"Once again, I find myself needing
to blog about randomness, in all it's glory. I'm still not quite
sure on what subject(s) I'm going to discuss with, well, myself,
this time, but here we go. I've had a few ideas lately. One of them
is quitting smoking. Not the brightest idea of ever had, but it
could really help me out. I have asthma, and chronic bronchitits,
and I found myself hovering over the toilet last night, puking up
blood, water and sloppy joes; nasty aint it? Anyway, I recognize
this idea from somewhere, last year I tried the same thing and I
promised myself, and swore on my life that I would quit smoking
for good. That didn't work for more than two days (if that, I don't
"I'm always thrilled to find out that
no matter how shitty my week gets, no matter how much stuff screws
up, breaks, falls apart, explodes, implodes, and the dog pisses
on it, too... All it takes is for one thing to go right to make
me feel better."
""Sorry I'm late, I had to wait
for my roommate to get out of the shower before I could use it."
"You took a shower? Before coming here? Why, other than to
be the first person ever to do so?"

"Standing at the cornerhouse, giving
thanks to the powers that be for giving such fine booty, I was thinking
what I was gonna say on the blog today. but what the hell, its simple:
last night was wild. over and above that, I tried blow job jo swooning
tactics on another pretty dame. hmmm."
"After a week and a half of wimping
out because of back pain/tension, I made it back to the gym today.
I woke up on my own before my alarm went off, which was Difficulty
#1: I thought to myself, "Oh just a few more minutes of sleep."
Difficulties #2 and #3 were that the bed was too warm, and that
my dog was so darn cuddly."
"Teams fighting for playoff births,
rookie quarterbacks taking the field for the first time, and Mother
Nature's nasty weather, are just a few of the things that will surely
make this a great week #15 in the NFL. "
"This afternoon, after a somewhat disorienting
morning, I went to the local Starbucks on Pearl Street for a cup
of coffee and a chance to do some homework for my Economics Class,
and noticed that my TiBook had found a computer-to-computer network.
I connected, knowing it was from another laptop in the café.
I was right, and it was weird to be seeing the "My Pictures"
folder from another system... "
"Ever scan through your CD collection,
only to find you're bored with every single CD you have? I'm at
that point. I'm flipping through, looking at each CD going "no,
no, no, no, no...........no...no". I don't feel like listening
to any of them. I hate that. I just want to trash my entire collection,
every CD I have and start from scratch."
"Well i guess i shud follow Beth's
lead n write about the Download festival i was lucky to go to...hmmmm...well
after finding out the day before that i was going, i didn't get
the usual,"its ages away and i wish it was 2mw"sort of
anticipation which i was glad for as it drives me MAD when i'm looking
forward to summit and the days just drag by, so anyways, on friday
night i was well excited, managed to sleep a little before waking
up at 8am and avin a bath,Beth turned up at 9:45am and we had to
wait for my step dad to come back from town to give me my spending
"Had a wierd, wierd dream about an
old female friend. My second really lucid dream in a few days. Back
in Israel again and found myself in her neighbourhood. I didn't
think she'd be living there anymore but she was. Her mother had
died. There was a threatening feeling in the air. She was haggard.
I knew I could save her.
Lucid dreams really linger. I am not consuming enough drugs."

blog related and worth checking out.
"I Wish, You Wish was a dreamed up by
Shelli when she thought how cool it would be to have a centralized
location for all of the blogosphere's wishlists. She asked Kymberlie
what she thought and the idea took off from there with things like
birthdays and possible submission forms being added. While all of
these ideas are obviously not in place, the basic idea is now here.
