Today a lot of my Facebook friends are changing their profile picture to that stupid red HRC equality logo or some other message of support, and frankly it's driving me nuts. I'm glad they think I should be able to get married, but I'd breathe a lot easier at night if I knew that legally I couldn't be fired just for…
I asked about this in GT, but no one's answered so far. Anyway, are any of you into doing your bicycle repair? I need a new bike tire, but because of where I live I'm going to have to order it online. Any recommendations for a decent bike part website? There's so many I don't know which one to choose.
Are any of y'all into doing your own bicycle maintenance and repair? I need to replace at least one of my tires, but there aren't any bike shops in a 90-mile radius of me, so I'm going to have to order it online. Can anyone recommend a decent bike part website?
For the past week or so I haven't been able to get enough seafood. I started craving it like last Monday and even though I've had fish twice since then, I still want more. The weird part is that except for sushi, I'm usually totally indifferent to eating fish, crab, etc. Ugh, what is this?
I bought a Dremel set the other day, and to my chagrin I discovered the model I got is about as loud as a regular power drill. Sound travels really easily between my apartment and my landlord's apartment downstairs, and I'm hesitant to use the Dremel unless I know he's gone for the day so as not to bother him with the…
I feel so cliché asking about this, but I don't think I have anyone IRL I could talk to about this. Anyway, my 1-year anniversary with my girlfriend is about a month away. I think making it through a year together is a pretty big deal, and I want to do something special for it. I've already asked my girlfriend a few… Read more
Hey, meritxell and brotherparish, did you see this on the Mad Men Tumblr link?
I've since moved on to the second Hunger Games book, and I hate how much I can't stop reading it.
Ugh, I just found out that one of my queer heroes (queero?) has been dealing with cancer off and on since last fall. Her name is Kate Bornstein, and she is one cool lady. She was one of the first major trans activists; I saw her speak at my college a few years ago and, as corny as it sounds, her lecture was…
I just realized 4/20 is a month from today, so you know what that means ... it's my one-year anniversary with my girlfriend. ;)
I have yet another cat grooming question. (I've never had my own cat before, much less a long-haired one). My boy has really long hair between his toes like a Maine Coon* does, and I was wondering if it would be okay to trim this hair. The only reason I ask is because sometimes I find bits of litter or other crumbs in… Read more
One of the things that's always bugged me about my girlfriend is how long it's taken her to get her dog spayed. She finally scheduled it for this week, after having the dog for almost a year. I think spaying and neutering pets is super important, and I've never understood why it wasn't important to her, too. Then,… Read more
I still have three weeks before my new job starts, and I have no idea what to do with myself.
So, my girlfriend plays a lot of World of Warcraft, but she's taking a break from it right now because something in her computer busted and it can't handle running the game. I really hate to say this, but this hiatus is a huge relief to me. I just feel so ignored when she plays. I mean she does stuff with me if I ask…
OMG, you guys, I found a totally sweet office chair someone left on the curb by my gf's parents' house. It's pretty nice, and the only discernible flaws are a missing wheel and some wear and tear on the arm rests. It looks a little ridiculous next to my dinky little desk, but I love it and I'm keeping it.
I desperately want to tell this chick she's an idiot for wanting to break up with her girlfriend because her gf is bisexual. WTF?!
