cereus: Cereus cactus blossom (Desert)
I spent this weekend with my fellow gamers having a crazy gamer party. All sorts of thingscome up, especially when some of the people haven't seen each other for a while.

One of my friends mentioned that there's a girl who comes to his work as a customer who has a (non-requited) crush on him. And that she uses a computer to talk and is in a chair.

One of the other people there decided to take the time to make fun of said girl. Fortunately, being a gamer party, I had my laptop handy and fired up TTSReader (Text to speech program).

"Hey asshole, Text to speech software is fun, I use it. Do you have a problem with that?"

In honor of the fact that tonight it will be 9/9/09 at 9:09:09

According to our extremely arbitrary Gregorian/Roman/Human calendar.

In some ways SM almost seems to be about emulating or channeling divinity.  The top is omnipotent, and the bottom is immortal.  The top can not only literally do anything but also knows deep things about their partner (omniscience?) and can have the experience of exercising that power justly. The feeling of just passing through things that may kill you and emerging unharmed.  Taking all the destructive forces into your body and transforming them into life giving energy. And plus being indestructible and all that – that’s probably how the gods would roll if they existed. ;) (I’m not saying they don’t I just have no empirical way to find out and don’t care much)

You are surrounded by muppets. But that is okay because they are your friends and have shown many times that they can be trusted. Now if only you could stop being bothered about wormholes.

As big as I am on DS9 I'm really glad it ended up near the top of the list :)

I'm Saddened by this.

Prop 102, which disallows gay marriage in AZ passed.

I'm not always sure about the usefulness of marriage.  I'm not even sure what marriage means, aka which are the important parts.  Is it the devotion to the other person, the "till death do us part", the fidelity, the social status of "being married"?  I do understand the ability to visit your lover in the hospital and to retain custody of your kids in case something happens to your beloved.

But being married to the person you love is a human right, and it is bigoted to deny some people that right.

I'm sorry.
