Give it up to me

I absolutely love and adore Shakira’s new song Give it up to me.

I love it so much, here it is for your enjoyment.

This concept could lead to a really great story. I’m just not sure how to frame it quite yet. But it has me all excited!

Happy Holidays!!

First I’d like to wish all my blog and story readers a very warm and happy holidays!

Lately I’ve been feeling down. It’s the time of year when I lament that I’m not going to get what I want for Xmas. The gift being the ending of my single status. According to NowPublic and Snopes, suicide rates do not increase significantly during the holiday season. That’s really great news.

I guess I have the feeling because while I have family to celebrate the holiday, I don’t feel complete. Add to the fact that a friend of mine just got engaged, it makes me feel unwanted. Heck, I didn’t even get a single e-card or holiday card. Not one.

Obama’s an ass

Alright, I don’t like Obama. I never did. Now he just continues to break promise, after promise. But this isn’t a blog post to preach. It’s just a collection of articles I wanted to share. Right now even Dick Cheney has a better record than Obama.

10% off admission

Alright, I don’t really have 10% off to anything. But my blog is still 100% free to read!!

Today I was playing around with OpenID. I was trying to find one of those nifty things that makes it easier to login to the blog from sites such as Twitter, Facebook and so forth in addition to sites like Yahoo! and LiveJournal that serve as OpenID providers. But so far no luck. And I don’t want to break the OpenID system I have right now.

On the good news side, my writing of HIH has started to really pick up. This includes the Logo Contest I announced on my super elite Yahoo! Group!!

Word cloud fun!!

Wordle: Rising up from the Ashes

the Change

Wow, could the world have gone more topsy-turvey or what?

First Iowa, and then Vermont legalized same-sex marriage. Vermont being the first U.S. state to do so by their legislature. Hopefully New York will be the second. New Hampshire is also considering a bill to legalize marriage. Let’s not forget that D.C. voted to recognize marriages performed elsewhere.

So what changed?

What changed between Proposition 8 in California, and the ruling in Iowa? What happened in Vermont that lead to them not only passing a bill to legalize, but to also miraculously override the Governor’s veto?

Trust is like a chicken egg.

In the TV show Babylon 5, the alien race referred to as the Vorlons had a saying. Understanding is like a three edged sword. Your side, their side, and the truth!

Recently I had a trust issue with someone close to me. I encouraged him to read a story I had been reading. Shouldn’t be a big deal, right? The problem came up that in his own excitement, he managed to trample on the trust I had for him. He decided to gloat about his newfound relationship with the author of the story.
