i am not a dj

girl talk show in a nutshell: a sea of candy-colored limbs

gregg gillis is amazing! well worth all the bullshit we had to wade through to see him. highlights included my neck my back mashed up with new soul and jockin' jay-z mashed with tiny dancer. and the encore was EPIC. i saw him for free last year on the berkeley campus and it was a very different experience... way fewer "brahs" and i don't remember any groupie sluts gyrating around him like he was a stripper pole? he blew up pretty big this year. on the plus side, we got really close to the stage. also, they had these, like, guns that shot toilet paper out. also, i spit on a girl. on purpose. team trash!
his energy is sick, i tell ya! he jerks and hops like a mad scientist in a jazzercise class. it might not sound like it, but it's sexy. i promise.

okay, it's confession time

i was mormon once. that is a long story for another time, i guess. anyway, i still get the ocassional mass e-mail from a person or two from church. i am telling you this because, well, i got this today (boldface is mine):

Fw: MA Public Schools Post Gay Marriage‏
(blahblahblah hella e-mail addresses)

Please see the link below. It details what is being taught in public schools since Massachusetts legalized same-sex marriage.

I think we all sympathize with Gays and the hardships they face being different from the majority. But I'm realizing that there is a very high price we are paying as we make these concessions. Do you really want your kids to be exposed to all of this? People around here don't seem to be worried about the rights of parents and children. Everyone condemns pedophiles but these teachers and administrators aren't far behind them. They're just violating children's minds rather than their bodies.-Alaina (a lady i worked with at church)

p.s. My mother-in-law verified the veracity of these claims with a good friend of hers who lives in Massachusetts (see below). It is all painfully true.

(blahblahblah hella e-mail addresses)

Elizabeth is a good friend, mother, attorney, and very active politically. I assume the Robb and Robin she refers to is the couple in the video we've all seen.
Brian Camenker is a first-class jerk, and he has a single-minded vendetta against Romney. I refuse to have anything to do with MassResistance.Having said that, Brian's facts are essentially correct (if slightly, and I mean only SLIGHTLY, alarmist). Robb and Robin are personal friends, and the Lexington School District put them through hell. They ultimately moved. Yes, this is a good taste of what you face in California if gay marriage remains the law.

(blahblahblah hella e-mail addresses)

Elizabeth, can you verify that this is factual? I'm sure there is some truth to it, but the take on Mitt Romney makes me question the validity of the entire article. I know it's bad out there, getting that way on this coast.
"What same-sex 'marriage' has done to Massachusetts:It's far worse than most people realize"

please do comment with your opinion, readers. i would rather read what you have to say on this one...
oh, and also,

listen to tim gunn!

quote of the day


“I look at these people and can't quite believe that they exist. Are they professional actors? I wonder. Or are they simply laymen who want a lot of attention? To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. "Can I interest you in the chicken?" she asks. "Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it? To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked."

- Author David Sedaris, on undecided voters

for serious

"Yeah, McCain said he is going to suspend his campaign so that he can work on the economy. I mean, really. It would be like me saying I'm suspending my pot distribution so that I can work on quantum physics."

need less, use less. we're asking for too much i guess...

double exposure (see the tree branch?) at night with flash

at night, in pitch black, with flash

shade, daylight

i got three rolls of film back, and a lot of the pictures didn't turn out, which is sad. but the ones that did turn out are ok by me, and i got a little lesson from the guy working there on how to fix a few of the problems i was having with the diana. yay!
also, the chick who helped me last time ordered my film to be printed in the wrong size... diana pictures are squares... so i dunno. maybe i will cut them.

"It's time that normal Joe Six-pack American is finally represented in the position of vice presidency."
- Sarah Palin

actually, sarah, most people believe that the president and vice president should be above average, extraordinary people.

how do you feel about this one?

"it's whatever, fool."?
"i'm not mad at it..."?
"um, i would HELLA rock this!"?
