A few days ago, I get an email from the school telling me that I owe them yet more money. Ho-hum. Fortunately, there's a whole month left to pay, so I get my mom onboard and we pay it via online check.

Today, I get a message back saying that the check was "returned unpaid", and now the second time I try to pay via e-check, they will charge me 200 bucks in addition to the 102 that they say I owe them.


This. Is. Bullshit. There is no way in hell my mom's account would bounce, she's a worker and damn better than I am at keeping track--somehow, someone has fucked up somewhere and my mom's paying for their fuck-up. This is absolute utter bullshit.


Twinny-poo is moving out. Sigh.

Right. So today is apparently Mother's Day.

I had no idea until like, an hour ago.

Now, I have a damn good reason for not knowing this! See, my birthday was on "International Mother's Day" (as my mom calls it), so usually every year my family tends to lump kath and my birthday celebrations with Mother's day celebration. I'm used to them being much closer together.

My birthday's on Thursday. And today is not Thursday.

...I managed to call her, so.

I got oil paint in my hair during life painting class.

Recently, I've been getting kind of sick of America. I don't mean so much my home, where I go to school, or the president, but just--some of the things that people do to each other, how people treat each other in daily life, and the dominant culture that beats people down and forces them into little boxes, to the point where people can either accept something as funny or get laughed at as oversensitive, it grates on me. The ever-dominant rape culture that makes a criminal out of a woman who was raped at age 13 and makes her rapist a martyr; how women are objectified to the point where the closest metaphor a man can make towards being raped is getting mugged, and a place where some people just don't THINK before they speak, not caring who they hurt or what the consequences are as long as THEIR needs are satisfied above all others--it's harrowing, distressing, and uncomfortable.

I've been thinking of traveling abroad for a while now, but now with the stupid unit cap restriction set in place, I don't think I'm going to be able to--at least, if I go to school in another country, it will have to be through a graduate program, meaning that I won't be able to study outside of the country until I have graduated and entered the business market. There is an immense sense of regret and loss at seeing my chances of a new experience taken from me by budget cuts and a bleeding economy.
So something like this both uplifts me and motivates me to look for some other way to experience studying abroad.

They really should list "Neosporin/other anti-bacterial" on the art supplies lists.

So my art project sratched me today. Twice--once on my face, and the other on my shoulder.

Then my drawing board bit me.

So much blooooooooood criiiiiieeesss


Discovered upon by chance while looking up "happenstance"

And I now know what all those funny words in the Jabberwocky are (Mimy=flimsy and miserable 83)


Putting people in prison for the baggy pants style? I sure don't like seeing guys walk around with their pants down to their knees, but come on, do we really need to flood prisons with more kids and have a reason to spend more state money on enforcing this in a time of recession? Blech.

The homeless tent city in Sacremento has been evicted. Yes, because that totally helps the homeless within find new homes. Right. *smacks forehead*

Connecting the dots between banning gay marriage and Apartheid is apparently really damn easy. Wish that the news media in general would make the connection.

Europe officially trafficks people more than they do drugs. -_-

Message from the Courage Campaign:

"I can't stop crying." After watching this video, that's what people are telling us.

And Kenn Starr is to blame.

Yes, THAT Ken Starr. The prosecutor who led the campaign to impeach President Bill Clinton has filed a legal brief -- on behalf of the "Yes on 8" campaign -- that would forcibly divorce the 18,000 same-sex couples married in California last year before the passage of Prop 8.

News broke Tuesday that the state Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on March 5, and will then make a decision within 90 days on the validity of Prop 8 and these 18,000 marriages.

When Starr's legal brief went public in December, the Courage Campaign immediately launched the "Don't Divorce..." campaign, asking our members to send us pictures with a simple message for Starr and the Prop 8 Legal Defense Fund.

Those pictures, and the heartfelt messages on them, inspired blogger Paul Delehanty (also known as "kid oakland") to send us a suggestion: Would Regina Spektor allow us to put your pictures to the words and music of her hit song "Fidelity"? So, we asked her and she said yes, very enthusiastically.

Regina Spektor's song, in concert with your pictures, shines a beautiful light on the 18,000 couples that Ken Starr wants to forcibly divorce.

Click here to watch "Fidelity," the heartbreaking music video inspired by your pictures and words, and then tell the Supreme Court not to divorce 18,000 California couples. Tell the Court to invalidate Prop 8, reject Ken Starr's case, and let loving, committed couples marry. DEADLINE: Valentine's Day:
