Sitting in my living room, I can pick up seven wireless internet signals. Is it bad that three of them are coming from my apartment?

Subject:Pepsi Jazz
Time:02:42 pm
I bought a case of Pepsi Jazz (Strawberries and Cream) today, just to see what it would taste like. I've got a terrible curiousity when it comes to flavoured colas. Anyhow, this one doesn't taste much like cola. It reminds me of those Campino Strawberry and Cream candies, but sweeter. I'm not really into drinking liquified candy, so I couldn't finish the can. Also, it's brown. The idea of brown strawberries turns my stomach.

The name also bothers me, like this is supposed to be the easy listening, adult contemporary version of pop. "Hi, you're listening to Pepsi Jazz, the smooth diet cola for discerning forty-somethings. Next in our lineup of gentle hits, we have the entire John Mayer discography." It also reminds me of a conversation that Dave and I had ages ago about what the worst cola flavour would be, and we came to the conclusion that it would have to be semen.

However, I'll probably finish the case, because it isn't as awful as some of the other fruity colas. (Coke Lemon, sorry, you taste like windex and a dirty dishrag. Did someone distill you from a janitor's lemony fresh mop bucket?)

Today Joe took me to see ROTS, and I have some choice words to say about it. In point form, because I'm lazy.
Cut for potential spoilersCollapse )

I was really disappointed when I found out that Constantine wasn't going to be another crappy movie about a Roman Emperor. Keanu Reeves as the first Christian emperor would have been great! "I saw a sign in the sky, and Jesus told me to conquer by this. Whoa."

Subject:The Debate Begins...
Time:06:59 am
Stephen Harper really pisses me off.

"All religious faiths traditionally have upheld that marriage is a child-centred union of a man and a woman, whether Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh or Muslim. All of these cultural communities, rooted in those faiths, will find their position in society marginalized."

UGH. That wording just pisses me off because gays and atheists and agnostics are all marginalized by the Conservatives, but he doesn't seem to care about that. I don't believe that religious groups will ever be marginalized to that extreme in Canada. Besides, supporters of same sex marriage have already said that if you don't want to let someone get married in your church, you don't have to. The way Harper talks, is like he has a picture in his mind of a post-apocalyptic world where the gays have taken over and people of religious faith have been herded into breeding camps or something.

I really like this quote from Gilles Duceppe. I never really had much respect for the Bloc, but I may need to rethink that.

"Quite beyond our partisan attachments, or even our political and religious convictions, we have to think about what we would answer, what we would say to a human being who wants to marry his or her same-sex partner and asks us, 'why are you refusing me marriage?'

"Does that mean love between same-sex partners is not as valid as love between a man and a woman?" Duceppe asked. "Or that love between same-sex partners does not exist, or should not exist?"

Subject:Valentime's OMG!!1!
Time:01:04 pm
Current Mood:bitchybitchy
You know what bugs me? The word "Valentime's." Not the pronunciation, I'm lax about things like that because I mispronounce words quite often. It's the spelling that bothers me. What makes people think that this is the correct spelling? There is no Saint Valentime, so it makes no sense in that context. Do they think it's a special time, a time celebrating someone or something called Valen? It doesn't make sense that way either, because of the placement of the apostrophe. It would have to be Valen's Time, or Valen Times. Gah! I'm putting way too much thought into this.

Subject:Gay Marriage
Time:08:45 pm
Current Mood:confusedconfused
I would really like to understand why people are so vehemently against gay marriage. I've heard the main reasons: That it's an abomination in God's eyes, that it opens the door to polygamy (in my eyes, polygamy would be considered more discriminatory under the Charter than gay marriage, because polygamy excludes women who want multiple husbands), that gay marriage teaches children to be gay. I'd like to know the rationale behind these reasons. What I hear is a lot of fear. Maybe they think that allowing gays to marry will make their own straight marriages less precious? Personally, I don't care. Would having a gay married couple move into the neighbourhood threaten my own relationship in any way? Not at all. Am I afraid they'd try to seduce my boyfriend into becoming "one of them"? Not particularly, because the gay couple would have a commitment to each other, and under the marriage bill a marriage is between two people to the exclusion of others. If the government lets gays marry, it will not open the floodgates for people having plural marriages and marriage to animals, like some naysayers proclaim. Besides, I think that if you want to marry an animal, you probably aren't mature enough for marriage in general. (Why do they even bring up bestiality? An animal can't sign a marriage license, so it's a moot point.) There's a lot of outcry about the sanctity of marriage, but I think my grandma (who has had more marriages and divorces than I can count on one hand) is more of a threat to what conservatives consider to be "the sanctity of marriage and traditional family values" than a lesbian couple who have been together for 30 years. There are so many gay couples who have spent their lives together, being denied the right to make that commitment legal. I wish I could get into the mindset to understand the conservative stance, because trying to make sense of their rhetoric is like smacking my head against a wall.
