Miscellaneous

Wow. I think that was the quickest, and possibly the worst, essay I have ever written...

Dad just left to pick up Mom from the hospital. I'm hoping they'll be back before I have to leave for school, but knowing the hospital, probably not...

I actually started writing my zine-fic last night. Late at night is always great for writing strange, rambling stories, since by that point your mind is in a strange and rambling state...

I have to make sure that Jamie's car magazine starts coming in the next couple weeks, otherwise that weird little man ripped me off...

I just realized it's 1:30pm and I haven't had anything to eat. Hmm...

Is Gips full of it or what? "Oh, Daniel people have been abused..." Abused? Did people drive to their homes and beat them with reeds? Did someone with connections sic the IRS on them? Tell the CIA that Bin Laden is hiding out in their garage? I mean, what is abuse? Telling people that you disagree with them? Admitting that you question their motives? Having more than one person respond to them? Should we make rules about that...?

Had weird dreams last night. In one I was being chased around by some manner of evil people. I remember one I poured hairspray on and then set them on fire. And I think there were evil kittens that could fit through keyholes. Then I dreamed that I was working at the movie theater again and DB was my manager. Heheh...

Okay, I need food.

Miscellaneous Part II

Back at school... class in about 15 minutes. I called Dad's cell when I got here and he and Mom were about 5 minutes away from home. She was having some pain, so he was going to go fill her percription at the supermarket. Don't know if I certain "eeevil" delivery had made it there yet, but the Disco Bay florist did call around... 2pm asking for directions. Seems my street isn't on the map, which probably means the map was created in the 1950s or something ;)

As a follow-up to my last post, and something Jen (man, can that girl argue or what?) said on GW -- why do people throw around terms like "abused" so easily? I mean, in fandom we have our own terms for slappage and everything, such as being 'flamed', so why do people feel the need to overdramatize and characterize someone disagreeing with them as abuse? As long as it doesn't resort to baseless insults, I don't see the problem.

And everything I've seen that's "anti-Daniel" or "anti-MS" has been pretty well based ;)
