Libra Relationships are going through a very interesting phase this week, especially as the Solar Eclipse, in your opposite sign of Aries, takes place on Friday. You may have come to the conclusion that something was bubbling away beneath the surface some time ago. If this is the case then it is certainly going to become very obvious this week. You yourself know what kind of event it will be, either positive or negative, but you could also be taken by surprise - so do be prepared. Mercury is still retrograde, but not for too much longer.This stuff is so goofy, even if it IS true!! I've known about the things "bubbling away" for quite awhile, lol. But I don't think it even has the possibility of being a positive thing. Not even a chance.
This week April 4 through April 10
Ever since I read about this guy on another blog, I have been playing his tunes......and iTunes has made a bit of $ off me as a result--great stuff. Bonamassa.com and then I read on his tour schedule page: 8/20/05 Wausau, WI Big Bull Falls Blues Fest 7:30pm I think I know where I will be on the 20th of August!!
Asymmetrical Information: A really, really, really long post about gay marriage that does not, in the end, support one side or the other
My only request is that people try to be a leeetle more humble about their ability to imagine the subtle results of big policy changes. The argument that gay marriage will not change the institution of marriage because you can't imagine it changing your personal reaction is pretty arrogant. It imagines, first of all, that your behavior is a guide for the behavior of everyone else in society, when in fact, as you may have noticed, all sorts of different people react to all sorts of different things in all sorts of different ways, which is why we have to have elections and stuff. And second, the unwavering belief that the only reason that marriage, always and everywhere, is a male-female institution (I exclude rare ritual behaviors), is just some sort of bizarre historical coincidence, and that you know better, needs examining. If you think you know why marriage is male-female, and why that's either outdated because of all the ways in which reproduction has lately changed, or was a bad reason to start with, then you are in a good place to advocate reform. If you think that marriage is just that way because our ancestors were all a bunch of repressed bastards with dark Freudian complexes that made them homophobic bigots, I'm a little leery of letting you muck around with it.This is a great post from Jane Galt; definitely some things to think about in here. She really counters the "argument" I've always put up for gay marriage, and certainly gave me some things to consider. It's a long post, but WELL worth taking the time to read. Trying out this trackback thing as well--sure hope I'm doing this right, and not just causing some sort of incredible load on someone's server. I've read the instructions on it enough times, and the proper etiquette--but we'll see, I guess. :-))
ThinkGeek :: iCopulate
It's not easy being single. At ThinkGeek we believe everyone deserves a little lovin'... Geeks can't survive on technology and BAWLS® alone. But how about your iPod®? It's sleek and sexy, but has probably never had a date. If you looked half as good as your smooth glossy white pod, you'd have to beat folks off with a stick. It's almost unfair. Features of the iCopulate™ include: * Unique, ribbed, Latex sleeve surrounding embedded electronics for enhanced iPod® safety and increased user comfort * Includes one 8oz tube of non-toxic strawberry scented iLube™If only it were true......dontcha just love April Fools' Day?? Updated later: Anyone else notice a theme here with me and this Ipod stuff? Must be the Vicodin...yep, that's it...uh huh.... ;-)
Yes......it's true....I have joined the cult.

APPLETON, Wis. - Ms. Wheelchair Wisconsin has been stripped of her title because pageant officials say she can stand — and point to a newspaper picture as proof.Think I'd qualify for that job? Right now, the thought of using a wheelchair sounds pretty good. Thank God for Vicodin.
