"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

Reading this article just further reinforces my disdain for Wal-Mart and people in general.

Employees at the Niles, MI Wal-Mart store accused Paolucci of shoplifting some Bic lighters. Although he produced the receipt, they refused to back down, insisting that the two men go to a “detention room”. The employees, using vulgarities and hostility, frightened their special needs kids.

This is blatant homophobic discrimination and harassment. It just makes me sick, and pushes my ultimate decision to move out of the country that much closer to the present.

Considering there's already a proposal being made to change the constitution to explicitly state that marriage is between a man and woman, I don't know how much longer I can deal with a good deal of the population, including my sister, being treated as second-class citizens. If H.J. Res 56 gets passed I'm saying adios to America and hola to England.

NaNoWriMo!!

It's that time again for the masses to sit down, plug-in and get typing!!!

This will be my 2nd attempt at NaNoWriMo. I don't expect to finish 50,000 words. The reason I do this is to kick start myself into the writing process again. The story I wrote last year was actually turned into my final short story for my Fiction class. Yes I did say short story; sometimes amputation saves the whole body.

This year I hope to have the same luck. I don't have a clear view on the plot just yet, but it is YA, and revolves around high school-college age kids.
