Birthday wishes…

To my dearest kitanzi

May your day be filled with light
May your night be filled with stars
May you find at every turn a smile
May you be full of joy, full of hope, full of peace
May your thoughts be filled with friends
May your heart be filled with wonder
And your life be filled with all the love
You so very much deserve

Happy birthday, sweetheart!

Answers (so far)

Answers to the “Ask me anything” poll. To ask me a question, go to this entry. If you don’t have and LJ account and want to leave me a question, put it in the comments section of either
this or that entry.

I’ll have more answers as soon as y’all ask me some more questions!

Everything You’ve Ever Wanted To Know About Autographedcat…

Other people have done this poll, and I’ve been considering it for a while. So…..go ahead, ask me any question you’d like in the box above, and I’ll try and give you an honest and complete answer in the days to come. 🙂

UPDATE: It was pointed out to me the text box was too short, so I re-did it with the maximum allowed value. I do still have the questions from before, though if you want to ask me another one, that’s fine too. 🙂

Every now and again

A quiz amuses me enough to post it.


You are resourceful and talented. You get your job
done completely and quickly, with a silky-
smoothness that benefits whatever side you
choose to be on. Your overseers appreciate the
great advantages you bring to their
organization and they probably like you (unless
you don’t want them to), and they will continue
to do so until you’ve stolen their seats of
power out from under them.

The “Who Are All You People, Anyway” Meme :)

Taken from browngirl and telynor:

If I’m on your friends list, how do you know me? Even if it’s obvious, even if you know me RL, please comment with a short blurb about how you know me.

Also, please give a tiny little biographical blurb about yourself. Tell me how old you are, where you’re from, a little relevant information like that.

If you read my journal but don’t have an LJ account, leave a comment anyway. I know there’s at least three of you out there. 🙂

The Jefferson Muzzles

(Yes, filkerdave, that’d be a great name for a band…)

The 2003 Jefferson Muzzles have been announced. From their webpage:

Since 1992, the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression has celebrated the birth and ideals of its namesake by calling attention to those who in the past year forgot or disregarded Mr. Jefferson’s admonition that freedom of speech “cannot be limited without being lost.”

Announced on or near April 13 — the anniversary of the birth of Thomas Jefferson — the Jefferson Muzzles are awarded as a means to draw national attention to abridgments of free speech and press and, at the same time, foster an appreciation for those tenets of the First Amendment. Because the importance and value of free expression extend far beyond the First Amendment’s limit on government censorship, acts of private censorship are not spared consideration for the dubious honor of receiving a Muzzle.

I have no words…

Speak up, and they’ll knock you down. Don’t speak up, and they’ll still knock you down.

I know the people who need to hear this don’t read my journal, but…This what your “family values” have wrought. Look closely, and tell me what your loving god would think of this. And don’t you dare turn away. Don’t you dare.

UPDATE: Another account of the story, this time from the Boston globe.

Please bear in mind that when I talk above about “family values”, I’m using the phrase to point at a very specific political group who use the phrase as a code-word. As I said, those people don’t read my journal, but I do hold them responsible for the poison they spread and the hatred they breed.

Weekends, Weekouts…

After our intensly sociable schedule last week, we felt the need for even more human company. So we decided to head up to the mountains of Tennessee to see some of our chosen family, namely sis Kender, her hubby Shadow, and their little ones K. and C.

Just got back a box of about 20 or so books I had loaned out to someone who was put on three months of bedrest last year, including the entire Vorkosigan series, the Diana Galbadon historical romances, a Get Fuzzy collection, and some other assorted stuff.

6. What book do you have loaner copies of, solely for the purpose of foisting it on unsuspecting friends and relatives?

I buy used copies of Mark Helprin’s “Winter’s Tale” and give them away to people.

More Meme-y Goodness

Ok, so while I’m being memerific today, this one, stolen from nrivkis, was really intriguing. I may do it again later with another artist, but since I’ve been really listening to Screen Door’s new album a lot this week:
