Politics from a girl who knows dick about politics. (Sort-of.)

So while the rest of the world is going batshit over the US presidential election, I’m more interested in the fact that there is no Heroes on tonight. “Political apathy” is one way to put it, but then, no one in my family is politically active or really cares in the least. I wasn’t raised to follow all the asshattery, and quite honestly I know jack shit about how politics work. I’m nearly 23, and I’m not registered to vote, nor do I have plans to register any time soon. I never even voted in things like student body elections in school – none of it ever made any difference to me.

I don’t have television. I don’t have a newspaper subscription (and there’s no way in hell I’m walking out to buy it every day), and unless someone links me to an article of interest, I don’t check out the news online. 90% of what I see/hear/read regarding this election are from second or third-hand sources, and we all know how much the story changes from person to person. The few interviews/debates I have seen (through being at Dad’s, or in a hotel somewhere) gave me very, very little hope. Ms. Palin is still an idiot, and Mr. McCain is still a skeezy old man who would probably die in office anyway (leaving us with a president who doesn’t know her ass from a hole in the ground). GJ on trying to rope in Hillary’s supporters by choosing the least intelligent eligible woman you could find, McCain. I’m not against having a woman in office, I’m against having (more) idiots in office.

…In general, politics just leave a bad taste in my mouth, and thus I avoid them at all cost. I’ll be happy when this is all over and people stop shoving their political (and/or poli-religious) views down my throat. The only proposition out of the ones I know about that I have any interest in is prop 8. No on prop 8 = good. If you’re so worried about things like a man marrying another man might make people want to marry their goat, then propose to make marrying anything that isn’t human illegal. And “teaching gay-ness to children”? WTF is that? You’re gay by your own preference, not because someone around you is gay. If the latter were true, my high school would’ve had a much larger population of gay students, given that one of the guidance counselors (mine) was openly lesbian and headed the US (United Sexualities – a LGBT “club” that also had several perfectly heterosexual members among its ranks). I certainly don’t prefer the wimmins because gayness was “taught” to me.

Really now. This country has bigger things to worry about than whether or not a gay couple should be allowed to marry/adopt/foster. Being gay does not mean you are a pedophile, nor does it mean you’ll be any less of a good parents.

Bah.

All over the place post is all over the place.

That said, Menclave has my Gundams \0/

*eight months later*

I live, temporarily. School is back in session and I’m going to have to suffer the next four months under 15 units of prealgebra, English 1A, Biology & 20th Century American Literature. Going alright thus far, despite the fact that my textbooks are not here yet (I am going to be screwed in math tomorrow :D Good thing homework only counts as 5% of our grade). With any luck they will be here tomorrow though, J ordered them on her card Thursday night and thank GOD it ended up costing only a little more for my textbooks + mum’s textbooks than it would’ve had I bought only my books at the campus bookstore. For fuck’s sake, why is this shit so expensive D:

In order to keep from going insane in school I’ve been writing more (as I have days where I have to spend 3-5 hours sitting around campus until my class starts); mostly a bunch of useless tennis fic. I’ve also resurrected Sakura-Crisis and Red Sun, so those will take up some time I need to spend avoiding trying to kill myself with overwork XD

Summer was more or less fab – went to Fanime the day after school ended in May and got to see Marou, Kitty & Aka, all of whom were visiting CA (+ my usual suspects, who are still made of love), then headed out to Otakon in July to hang out with Roll & Moff in Baltimore (you can see our cosplay pics in that shiny new photos section on the sidebar :D). Needless to say I had a blast hanging out with some of my most favourite people ♥ Skipped AX due to lack of funds and will likely skip it again next year for Otakon instead. Next up is Yaoicon to go play with Rue, Spardie, Van & my usual ladies and gents. Van’ll be spending the week at my house too, so that’ll be fun :3

*brain fizzle* It is getting late, and thus I need to pop off to bed. G’night, all :)

Le post of random.

Just a bunch of random crap.

Airport security: Not nearly as effective as they want to be. Rules: No bottled water/other drinks, lotions, non-prescription meds, no lighters or flammable objects and other such stuff in your carryon.

Case in point: My trip to Virginia last month. My easily-accessible carryon contained a bottle of juice, a thing of baby lotion, several different packages of cold medicine and such, two lighters, etc. Not a single one of them hidden other than just being in my bag, and not a single one of them we confiscated. And this is the same airport that five years ago on another trip to Virginia felt the need to search one of my carryons that was chock full of school text books (I was on home study at the time). If they can’t be arsed to take it from me, I can’t be arsed to give up something that is completely pointless to give up. What, are we going to kill the entire plane with our 12oz water bottle of Eternal Doom? FU, Homeland Security.

Mum has been on one of her learning kicks recently, and totally dragging me into it. I’ve learned more about the relationship between the Arabs and Israelites, Jewish people and anti-semetism than I ever wanted or cared to know.

And there we have them, Tenimyu’s Rikkaidaigaku Fuzoku. Am still slightly miffy that it’s this winter and thus all my monies are already gone and it’s too late to plan for a Japan trip :(

Tennis RP: The truth to Fusion Kirihara’s hatred for Yamato comes out. (Partially.) (Wibble alert).

Anime kick lately as S has me holding onto about 90% of his cds and dvds, so just since last Thursday I’ve watched Witch Hunter Robin, 最終兵器彼女, Angel’s Tail and started watching Groove Adventure RAVE. I want to watch 彼氏彼女の事情 but the DVDs aren’t cooperating :((

Witch Hunter Robin could’ve had a better ending imo (too abrupt?), while I am now totally in love with Saikano. The love totally must be spread. Angel’s Tail is asdfjaksdf cute though from the few eps I’d already seen I knew that XD Groove Adventure Rave is making it onto my ‘this show is fscking awesome’ list already.

Leaving for Yaoicon tomorrow~ Super last-minute Nagi costume was more or less finished last night, just need to add some fake stuff to it (I got lazy on the pants so they’re just elastic instead of actually having a zipper and all that >.>) Plus it looks funky because I didn’t have enough of the fabric I was using for both the top and the pants (I bought the last of it that Beverley’s had) and sometime after getting home from fabric shopping found a brand new sheet that was the exact colour I needed it (lighter than what I bought and plenty for both the top and pants but eh too lazy to remake the top). For once actually used a (modified) pattern for what I was doing XD; But it’s good enough for me and I don’t care. 8D

During the course of that S comes in with his armor all “Hey fix this I need it for my race this weekend.” (Motocross protective gear) and hands it to me with this big gigantic hole in the sleeve (ha, and those things are supposed to be more or less indestructable). Luckily I had an asston of black spandex leftover from when I made my Envy costume (hell it was $1 a yard, I just bought the rest of the roll) and thus it got fixed but was a pain in the ass because where the hole was was not sewing-machine-accessible and thus had to sew by hand through thick ass fabric >E Hopefully he doesn’t tear it to shreds again because I don’t want to fix it again XD;

…Other than that, not much going on other than messing around in TCG’s and rps and such 8D

And,

Happy Birthday, Yagyuu Hiroshi, you hot piece of 2D ass, you.

The chapter of life stuff, mail, site stuff, and I hate fandom.

So, mum got a new job! Yay for once again having some sort of income in the house other than my few and far between workdays, though starting next week I think I have at least a week of work. Mum starts today at the assisted living center for the elderly down the street (which amuses me, her old job at the vet clinic was a 3 minute drive away, ~20 minute walk for me. New one I can walk there in about 8 minutes XD Like, you have to drive past it to get to my house hur. But yeah anyway, it seems like something she’ll enjoy with hours that she actually likes (2 pm to 10 pm – 8 hour shift of watching elderly people and getting hugs and coworkers she likes so far rather than a 10 hour shift of lugging bitchy/sick/injured animals around plus being on call with coworkers who made it all hell). Doesn’t pay much but me & mum are alike, if we enjoy our job we don’t care if we don’t get paid an exhorbarant amount. It’s enough to pay bills and have a little fun, good enough for us.

Another nice thing is that they’re looking for a volunteer for like some arts & crafts sort of thing down there so I might check it out. Something’s gotta be better than sitting on my ass in front of my computer 90% of the time (I admittedly have little to no social life outside the webbernets 8D)

Moving on! Mail the other day included my copies of Arashi’s Arashic, Kame & Pi’s (okay Shuji to Akira who cares) Seishun Amigo and DBSG’s Japanese single Begin.

I liked most of the tracks on Arashic, though the ones that seem to be on repeat the most are I Want Somebody and きっと大丈夫. They’re just er funky? The whole cd itself is like the perfect blend of lounge music, fun music and gay.

…Okay so Seishun Amigo I already liked the songs on and only really bought it so I could own the gay. However, despite liking songs, Kame’s always makes me want to cockblock him for sounding like such a goddamn emo bitch. 8D

High Time makes Begin worth having. It’s fun and bouncy while Begin is a little too ballady-slow for me — but it’s not a bad song.

Moving on again, False Advertising got a shiny new Pi layout (is it obvious it was originally going to go here?). And with that, the Tanaka Twins, Momo/Kaidou, and Dan Taichi fanlisitings are up for adoption. Check it out, yeah?

And finally, the bitching. I realized the other day why I generally stay on the outside of band fandoms. Because fans of a certain group can be even more cruel and vicious than anyone in an anime/tv show fandom could ever be.
