As i'm sure you've all noticed, I am suffering from severe writer retardation. Not block, because I am able to write, but it all becomes this... MUSH. There is no other word for it. I'll start off at a fairly good pace, and then it all dissolves into nothingness, totally off point and going nowhere. Ah, well. It may have something to do with life stress and being out of town all the time. I need to "recharge my batteries". Not really sure when I'll get a chance to do that... heading up to MD on Thursday for the 4th of July weekend.
I'm sure at some point my brain will come back, and I'll have coherent things to offer you.
For now, amoung all the deaths this past week, I leave you with the lovely image of Farrah to ogle. She ought to take your mind off the fact that I haven't said anything at all quite nicely. Yes.

Happy Pride, People! And not just to the GLBTQ (or bananas, as I was informed this weekend) community, but to everyone. Be proud of who you are, and enjoy the differences in life.
Thanks, Mr. Obama, for at least acknowledging the gays, even if you are kind of ignoring them otherwise -- it's official.
More on this later...

Body image is something I've talked about a couple times here -- because being a woman in my mid-twenties (yikes!) it is something that is at the forefront of all my pop culture obsessions (if you hadn't noticed I am, in fact, obsessed). A few months ago I had conceded that I was no longer the stick thin girl I was in high school. But it's finally dawned on me that I have Curves. Now, they aren't huge or anything -- I'm no Dita Von Teese -- but, now that I have accepted this fact, I have been able to find clothes that fit better, and that flatter me much more than trying to wear things that make me look like a stick. I consider this a big step. I've always had shaky self confidence, for various reasons that could be quite psychologically probed, and the fact that I am able to feel great about how I look is very comforting. I also chopped all my hair off. I'd been growing it out, partly for the wedding I was in in May, but I considered letting it grow because it's just prettier and more feminine that way. But, you know what? Fuck that. I love having short hair. It makes me feel good, it's easy and I feel like myself. I guess when it comes down to it -- the only person I need to make happy is me, and the other people who still love me after that are the ones I should feel lucky to have in my life.

I, in no way, condone stalking. I think that for the most part the paparazzi are absurd and ridiculous. This being said, I can't help myself. I read people.com -- simply so I don't die from depressing news. In the mornings, I sign into my iGoogle, where all the latest headlines are very conveniently displayed, I begin this downward spiral of news depressants. In the US -- hate crimes, political disagreements, and a failing economy; All over the world -- bombings, hate crimes, more political unrest, nuclear tests, unjust imprisonment and so forth. So, I enjoy taking ten minutes to peruse people.com -- this is something I certainly used to feel guilty for. I try not to get involved in the trashier subjects (affairs, etc) but, looking at the new fashions, or the hilarious things people wore on the red carpet can sometimes be a nice change of pace. Again, I really feel sorry the celebs who are constantly stalked and can't get a minute alone, but things like the red carpet or award shows -- I'll take. Also, for something REALLY funny and nostalgic watch, do yourself a favor and watch this. I laughed very hard, and totally watched SBTB the next day... I still <3 Zack Morris.

So, for those of you have not already been bombarded by my facebook page, i'm announcing that a new addition is being added to my clan : a little girl boston terrier by the name of River Tam :) She is coming home on Friday (!!!!!) and I am barely able to contain my excitement. I'm still not really sure how Simon is going to take this, but I know there will be a period of adjustment and I'm sure they'll end up loving eachother. As I've stated before, I really, really love Simon and I'm sure that my heart will only expand to accomodate the same kind of love for River.
Also, if you're not in the know, Simon and River Tam are brother and sister on the most amazing show ever created : Firefly. So, this doesn't make me a geek, it only makes my dogs really bad ass.
I swear! It does!

I actually thought this was really nice -- while I might not always agree with the cause, I always support our troops. Take a look here at this new campaign. And you can take a moment out of your day to send a quick card to a soldier serving overseas here.
I suppose I'm a bit late for memorial day, but I do what I can!
