(no subject)

I feel deeply lethargic this week - I'm not sure what it is, but I am extremely unmotivated to do anything and at this precise instant, to change the subject, I am getting pissy because my head hurts and this stupid shift key is sticking, stupid incompetent campus techies.

Yeah. The campus really needs to repave itself. Seriously. Take this from someone who gets the quasi-vague-pre-motion-sickness headaches if too long on a bus; the constant bumping and leaping and having my head smacked around like a soccer ball makes it very difficult to follow my anti-headache regimen; which amounts essentially to pulling up my hood, leaning against the window, closing my eyes, and pretending I'm elsewhere.

In other news, I think it may indicate something deeply twisted about history majors in general that this morning, as the prof described a particularly involved and witty medieval book curse, and was getting to the part about any potential thief's hanging, eye-gouging death by ravens, the entire class ended up dissolving into helpless, falling-out of our chairs laughter.

Either that, or it was that it was eight-thirty in the morning. Eight-thirty classes will make anyone a little vindictive and bloodthirsty.

Aneurism of the day...

"Reject the Christian ethic and you have no basis for making moral judgments."


When I got to this part: "Christianity is under siege, he tells his audience. Interlopers from out of state have come to Ohio, 'going door to door, knocking on doors so we can continue to murder babies and further strip the church of its First Amendment rights through hate crimes legislation.'"

...I almost had an aneurism from the pure OHMYGODSSOFUCKINGMISSINGTHEPOINT.

No, really.

I took a nap this afternoon and dreamt that the gay marriage ban amendment had passed, and the next morning thousands of gay and lesbian couples had been dragged out of their beds and arrested for tax fraud and other stupid retroactive legal nitpicking nonsense, and jailed, and it was international news, and the borders were closed, and there were about fifty Americans in my apartment (which, in the dream, was bigger), scruffy, and tired, and some with kids, huddled in blankets and hunched over tables making plans like Bajoran resistance fighters and I was circulating with a pot of coffee, filling mugs as I went (there were also many more mugs than I actually own - I remember because all of them were those blue speckled tin kind you take camping). And then the phone rang, and Mum (who in the dream, was putting up about twice as many people) told me that one of her friends in the RCMP had called her and told her that the States had put forth an extradition request, and the federal government hadn't approved it yet, but B.C. had said Fuck No, and the last news report she'd seen there had been a caravan of U.S. Marshals trying to cross at Cloverdale, and that was one long sentence.

I woke up just as somebody started banging on the door - which is silly because they'd have to get buzzed in, but apparently I had an outside door - it was the mailman putting my cable bill through the slot.

*shudder* This and the birth-control thing is enough to give nightmares. See? I wasn't kidding!

Apparently the mass exodus is getting more likely, though. No more professionals or anybody under thirty for Ohio if the thing passes, oh, no. And serves (the majority of them) right, too, if it does. That's how brain drain feels. See how you like it, you and your faith-based democracy.

"Faith-based democracy." *twitch* Will not point out obvious contradiction, the MORONS. *twitchtwitch*
