So I've voted and now I am sitting around with my fingers crossed that Obama wins because while I love Canada, I don't want to move there. Yay to everyone who voted and lets hope that this is the first day of a coming change.

*fingers crossed* Let's make some history!

Snagged from cyndrarae


1) Being gay is not natural.
And real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning, tattoos, piercings and silicon breasts...

2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay.
In the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behav​ior.
People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract. Lamps are next.

4) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all.
Hence why women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

5) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed.
And we can't let the sanctity of Britney Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage be destroyed.

6) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children.
So therefore, gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our population isn't out of control, our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

7) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children.
Since, of course, straight parents only raise straight child​ren.

8) Gay marriage is not supported by religion.
In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.

9) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home.
Which is exactly why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms.
Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

Re-post this if you believe love makes a marriage.
American nationals - vote NO on Prop 8.

So my darling Odile and I recently went on a little roadtrip to College Station, Texas to visit a friend at Texas A&M University and it was fun.. like very freaking fun. So we want to do it again but we can't seem to pick a place.

So I've decided to ask my wise LJ F!List: If you could roadtrip somewhere, where would it be?

(Um, we live in Dallas, and I think my car would become mutinous if I took her to Canada, so any southern locations?)

Thanks for your thoughts, I'll let you know what we pick!

So I used to have this friend and for six years I really thought this girl was my best friend. She is gone now, not in the dead sense but she totally abandoned me in the ways that it counts. This wasn't sudden, we'd been drifting apart for the last six months but today I felt the finality of losing her.

She found this boy, her first boyfriend and there is no way in hell he is good enough for her. For fucks sake he is so fucking close-minded and simple, he is nothing like dream-guys I thought we both wanted. So she got this boy and she left behind fandom, Odile, me and her freaking potential.

I talked to her after my European adventure and when I asked if anything new had happened in fandom, she said something like she didn't need make believe now that she finally had a BF. I had to laugh at her because I use fanfic and the 'power of the fangirl squee' as pure entertainment and a mental playground, I guess she used it as an substitute for the relationships she didn't have. I told my at-that-time-boyfriend and he laughed, he told me he thought that once you had slash-goggles and a fangirl membership card you were in for life, I replied that I had thought so too.

This girl has massive brain power and she could do anything she wanted, she could see the world and probably change it if she wanted. Instead she is choosing to get her degree and go teach in the school we graduated from because it must seem like a safe choice. And this whiskey tango motherfucker of a boyfriend isn't pushing her to fulfill her potential. It's just sad.

She didn't call/text/write to say Happy B-day and that's never happened before and when peeps forget I usually don't care because I forget too. But she was supposed to be my best friend, hell we lived in each others pockets for years and I miss who she used to be.

I can't call her because I can't stand the person she is becoming (or maybe because of the person she isn't becoming) but I can't help missing who she used to be.I know that starting college changes people but I always thought we could survive that.

I guess I was wrong.

From Judy Blume to V.C. Andrews, there's always a book circulating among teens that their parents don't want them to read. What favorite book did you have to hide from your parents?


I never had to hide anything from my parents but there are a few books, namely the Kushiel's Dart Series by Jacqueline Carey, that I didn't advertise. Ofcourse I think my father might have figured out at some point that I wasn't reading Nancy Drew when I would take to carrying The Fountainhead everywhere with me for three months at the age of 13. Not to mention the ways in which Gaiman/Pratchett and Anne Rice warped my brain.

Neither of them know anything about my slash-tastic tendencies although at this point I don't think they would be too surprised.

Maybe I'm slow on the uptake or maybe I just haven't seen this yet... but seriously. There is a buddy tv article that ends with this little summation:

"Some things I learned from my visit to Supernatural:

* All the talk about Jared and Jensen playing pranks is true, but the costume set supervisor, Bren Moore, might be the biggest prankster of them all.

* Jared and Jensen live together and carpool to work every day. They like to rib each other about who is lazier than whom in the morning, and it's very cute.

* The boys each have particular flavors of gum that they like to have readily available on set.
* Jared and Jensen look just as good in person as they do on television."

I think I am going to be happy for like a year now. Thanks. That is all.

So I've gotten my roomie addicted to SPN and she wanted to watch the episodes from the beginning before she started watching season four. Tonight we just watched House of the Holy and I had a sudden 'duh' moment.

Dean is telling Sam that he doesn't believe in what he can't see and Sam answers with a comment about praying everyday. Then Dean says that their mom was the same way and that every night before bed she would say, "Angel's are watching over you..."

So, in light of the big reveal that angels do exist maybe she was being literal. In the big sense, I really don't know what that would mean but it isn't something I've seen discussed online.

Comments? Ideas?

Hello m'darlings!

So you know when you haven't posted for a while and you feel the need to recap what's been going on but that seems like one of those promising tl;dr posts. Well that is what has kept me away in the time I've been back in the US of A. So no recapping of the last few months except to say: College life is amazing and I love my new apartment... and Euro-trip was perfect in all regards!

I know I've been a bad little lurky fangirl but life has been so hectic that I don't know what to write about first.

Well I am off to Europe (Uk, France, Germany, Denmark, Holland and Belgium) for the next two months. I will miss you all so much and I don't know how I'm gonna survive without the boys and the impala.

Much love and I promise to write more when I can,
Smirk the Wanderer
