Earlier this week, I heard a knock on my door. I opened it to find Brooke with a decapitated Hello Kitty head )

Apparently the AAG had a pinata and Brooke stole the head. I had to take a picture so I put in on the table outside my room. ) One girl freaked out! This made me want to wander around Twin and videotape people's reactions :)

After getting various people, we went to Meg's room. Meg was less than impressed; after knowing Brooke and me for over a year, it takes a lot to scare her. She did, however, decide to wear the head as a hat. )

She also promptly put it on her boyfriend... ) and mine... )

Meg called for a girls night out tonight because...well...boyfriends tend to be distracting. Ashly, Dani, Cassie, Brooke, and I sat in Meg's room talking for 3 hours. One of the things we talked about was Walmart, which led to a pilgrimidge (sp). This time I brought my camera :)

Our first stop was to the movie section where we saw this little beauty. You know how some mother's play Baby Genius or Mozart to make their kid (allegedly) smarter? Well this uses to the same logic to make your baby a good little Christian... click here )

We then moved on to the toy section

Lots of pics here! )

Next was the hardware department...

:) )

SEASONAL!! )

Next stop: Steak n' Shake )

<u> great quotes from tonight </u>

*we walk into seasonal aisle*
Meg: smells like ass...
Me: ... Christmas ass

Me: "Come with me, let's go find Jesus!!!"

Walmart guy: "Don't let me interrupt" (when Meg and I were fighting)

Me: "The puzzles broke her fall" (when Ashly skated into an endcap)

John: "Sneaky plate!"

"You're gonna break it, fucker!" - drunk/stoned guys in Steak n' Shake (referring to sneaky plate)

Last night was Princess Mononoke, sponsored by the Asian Awareness Group, Eco club, and Anime club. Over the 2 and a half hours we were inside watching the movie, a thin layer of snow fell...

 

Let it snow...  )

Thankfully all the snow was melted by today, but it's supposed to snow all week :-/

Yesterday was... well, an average day. Had a nice Nyquil-induced sleep, went to class, took Dayquil, went to work. After work, Meg and Dan wanted to go to Walmart for cheap Pomegranites and I tagged along. It's kind of sad that to us the big place to go "out" to is Walmart, but we find ways to make our own fun.

Our first stop was to Taco Bell because Meg wanted to hit it before it closed. Last time we drove by it we came about 30 minutes too late. Apparently Meg is addicted... While at Taco Bell we saw a vending machine full of beautiful parody stickers. Meg and I both bought a sticker (and actually got the one we wanted!). My sticker )

Then, stolen sporks in tow, we went to Walmart. We bought pomegranites with little suggestion stickers on them like "use me to top ice cream." Mine bragged about it's antioxidants.. it was a conceited little pomegranite. We did the usual sweep through clothes and movies, but didn't find anything. We did, however meet a nice Walmart woman who took Meg to the toy aisle and thought Meg and I were SISTERS!

Possibly the best part of out little excursion was when we went to the cheap-ass $1 aisle. They had a knock-off checker toy (Connect Four's bastard child). They also had squishy pillows!!! I honestly have no idea how it started, but Meg, Dan, and I had a pillow fight in the middle of the aisle. We had the whole aisle to ourselves, we were all lying on the floor, rolling and scrambling to grab pillows, then chucking them at each other. One of the walmart guys walked by, saw us, then just walked away shaking his head. We stopped at one point because we heard the loudspeaker go on and we half expected to hear "attention walmart employees, there are teenagers in the dollar aisle." But we didn't so we resumed our battle.

We left at 10.
We got back at 12.
I finally went to bed at 3.



I love college life...

So, as my previous posts point out, Christmas is possibly the most commercialized holiday. EVER.

But wait, it gets better...
Whatever newspaper the college has (Globe?) had an article on childrens' letters to Santa. Apparently, FOX thought of all those letters and decided they were missing out on a marketable idea. So, they will begin work on a new reality tv show in which childrens' letters to Santa are fulfilled. Sounds sweet, right? Remember, this is FOX. The show will have music provided by a handful of popular singers, including some American Idol contestants who didn't make it. The soundtrack CD will be sold, probably just in time to be a stocking stuffer.

For those of you living in the Albion area, you might like to know that there's a 30% chance for SNOW for pretty much the entire week, starting tonight.

For those of us who haven't brought our winter stuff up yet (like me), this should be interesting.

So I'm watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas and I'm not as able to get into the songs as much as I used to. I listened to all the insults sung at the Grinch and I wondered if he'd be called "as cuddly as a cactus," "as charming as an eel," or a sandwich "with arsenic sauce" if he was stealing a holiday other than Christmas.

What really bothered me though, was the assaults on his soul. We all know his heart is 2 sizes too small, but to they really have to criticize his soul too?? He's a cartoon character!! The narrator nonchalantly sings of the Grinch's soul being "full of gunk" and having garlic in it.

This seems a little innapropriate for a kids' cartoon. It's character assasination. The Grinch doesn't fit in (why else would he live so far away and want to hurt the whos) and is ostracized for it.

With all that said...
Happy Holidays
broken_soul6286: (Default)
How the Grinch Stole Christmas is on right now. And yes, even though I'm Jewish, I'm watching it because I love it. My favorite christmas movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas, but this is a close second.

When the TV announcer said it was next I checked the date on the right hand side of my computer: November 13th. Does America even celebrate Thanksgiving anymore??? Maybe if Thanksgiving encorporated presents, it'd be more popular.

The more cynical part of me is suprised they waited this long to show it though...

holy shit

This was an actual letter sent out by the St. Mary's Church, I italicized my favorites ^_^

 

If Your Child is a Gothic, Reform Through the Lord!


Listed below are some warning signs to indicate if your
child may have gone astray from the Lord.

Gothic (or goth) is a very obscure and often dangerous culture that young teenagers are prone to participating in. The gothic culture leads young, susceptible minds into an imagined world of evil, darkness, and violence. Please seek immediate attention through counselling, prayer, and parental guidance to rid your child of Satan's temptations if five or more of the following are applicable to your child:

- Frequently wears black clothing.
- Wears band and/or rock t-shirts.
- Wears excessive black eye makeup, lipstick or nailpolish.
- Wears any odd, silver jewelry or symbols. Some of these include:
reversed crosses, pentagrams, pentacles, ankhs or various other
Satanic worshipping symbols.
- Shows an interest in piercings or tattoos.

- Listens to gothic or any other anti-social genres of
music. (Marilyn Manson claims to be the anti-Christ, and publicly speaks against the Lord. Please discard any such albums IMMEDIATELY.)

- Associates with other people that dress, act or speak
eccentrically.
- Shows a declining interest in wholesome activities, such
as: the Bible, prayer, church or sports
.
- Shows an increasing interest in death, vampires, magic,
the occult, witchcraft or anything else that involves Satan.
- Takes drugs.
- Drinks alcohol.
- Is suicidal and/or depressed.
- Cuts, burns or partakes in any other method of self-mutilation. (This is a Satanic ritual that uses pain to detract from the light of God and His love. Please seek immediate attention for this at your local mental health center.)
- Complains of boredom.
- Sleeps too excessively or too little


- Is excessively awake during the night.
- Dislikes sunlight or any other form of light. (This pertains to
vampires promoting the idea that His light is of no use.)
- Demands an unusual amount of privacy.
- Spends large amounts of time alone.
- Requests time alone and quietness. (This is so that your chid may speak to evil sprits through meditation.)

- Insists on spending time with friends while unaccompanied by an adult.
- Disregards authority figures; teachers, priests, nuns and
elders are but a few examples of this.
- Misbehaves at school.
- Misbehaves at home.
- Eats excessively or too little.
- Eats goth-related foods. Count Dracula cereal is an example of this.  <--- my favorite!
- Drinks blood or expresses an interest in drinking blood.
(Vampires believe this is how to attain Satan. This act is very dangerous and should be stopped immediately.)
- Watches cable television or any other corrupted media
sources. (Ask your local church for proper programs that your child may watch.)


- Plays videos games that contains violence or role-playing nature.
- Uses the internet excessively and frequently makes time for the computer.
- Makes Satanic symbols and/or violently shakes head to music.
- Dances to music in a provocative or sexual manner.
- Expresses an interest in sex.







































- Masturbates
- Is homosexual and/or bisexual

- Pursues dangerous cult religions. Such include: Satanism, Scientology, Philosophy, Paganism, Wicca, Hinduism and Buddhism.
- Wears pins, stickers or anything else that contains these various phrases: "I'm so gothic, I'm dead", "woe is me", "I'm a goth".
- Claims to be a goth.



If five or more of these apply to your child, please intervene immediately. The gothic culture is dangerous and Satan thrives within it. If any of these problems persist, enlist your child into your local mental health center.

One of the women from Desperate Housewives in on CSI.

I don't know whether to be amused or horrified...

The previous entry wasn't meant for this journal, it was meant for my community [livejournal.com profile] aggap . I meant to post it earlier but accidently posted it to the wrong journal. I realized what I did as soon as I posted it but since my internet connection is spotty at best (I hate Cisco...) I couldn't access the page I needed to delete it and instead had to wait for the barrage of confused LJers.

 

Sorry for the confusion (:/)

experiment

We're gonna do a little experiment. I put a lot of time and effort into this livejournal and I'm curious how many people actually look at/ read it.

So.... If you read this community, even if you just glance at it as it takes over your friends page, comment. It doesn't have to be a big thing, just "hi" or "someone does give a shit."

I'm considering deleting this community so knowing people actually read it would help....

I think the only way to get all my homework done would be to stay up all weekend (or WEEK, the way things are going...). I don't like that idea.

I have to get to work in a half hour.









Weekend? What weekend??

woohoo!

After racking my brain for ways to post music into my radio's journal, I finally figured it out.

So.....

Want to download cool music FOR FREE?? Want info on bands and concerts? How about playlists of cool songs featured on my show?

Unfortunately I'll have to miss some of Coming Out Week (which is next week) due to it also being Rosh Hashana. Here's my contribution to the cause...

I am the guy who came out to the entire school in his senior speech and got a standing ovation for his courage.

I am the girl who kisses her girlfriend on the sidewalk and laughs at those who glare.

We are the couple who planned and studied and got a damn good lawyer and BEAT the state that wanted to take our child away.

We are the ones who took martial arts classes and carry pepper spray and are just too dangerous to gay bash.

I am the transgender person who uses the bathroom that suits me, and demands that any complaining staff explain their complaint to my face in front of the entire restaurant -- and shares with my other trans friends which restaurants don't raise a stink.

I am the mother who told her lesbian daughter to invite her girlfriend over for dinner.

I am the father who punished his son for calling you a fag.

I am the preacher who told my congregation that love, not hate, is the definition of a true follower of God.

I am the girl who did not learn the meaning of "homosexual" until high school but never thought to question why two men might be kissing.

I am the woman who argues (quite loudly and vehemently) with the bigots who insist that you do not have the right to marry or raise children.

We are the high school class who agrees, unanimously, along with our teacher, that love should be all that matters.

If you agree, repost this. Do it. You don't have to be afraid. You can handle it. You're stronger than you think.

I am making a difference. Hate will not win.

It was too important to put behind a cut, LJ cuts are too easy to ignore.
