I desperately need a distraction right now (don't ask), so:

Name a general theme (like, say, broken hearts or cats or whatever), and I'll give you the song, book, movie and food which best embody that theme to me.

In my family, this holiday is a musical bonanza. Between the three CDs I got and the seven I've burned copies of from my sibling and parents, I am totally rollin' in the tunes now. Amongst the spoils:

The soundtrack of Step Up from a relative who presumably does not know my musical tastes very well. (My hiphop tastes are more for M.I.A. and Public Enemy, I'm not so much for most club stuff.) Still, there are two songs on it I like, and it's not like I bought it.

Awake, Josh Groban. Oh, Josh *_*

Happy Feet, as in the soundtrack. Look, I appreciate dancing penguins, okay. Don't judge me.

Plus, copies of the following:

A four-disc set called The Sounds of Motor City, consisting of various . . . well, Motown tracks. It is predictable but enjoyable. It is also from my crazy aunt who, for the first time I can remember, gave everyone really enjoyable gifts, not bizarre stuff.

Eric Clapton and J.J. Cale's The Road to Escondido, which is fabulous. I may take advantage of the fact that I forgot to send out the Ape Mix CDs before Christmas and reburn them with "When the War is Over", which I really like. It is political as all get out, but still, niiiice.

The soundtrack from Mary Poppins. My father loves that movie. I, too, enjoy it.

One of those various Best of Frank Sinatra things. I've never really gotten into Frank, but perhaps I will change that.

I am capitalism's whore and proud of it.

Merry Christmas <3

Those of you who know me at all well will understand why I feel the urge to stab the radio everytime the song "Waiting on the World to Change" comes on. Fuck you, John Mayer, we do too have power to change things, but if we wait until our parents die off before we actively engage we will never ever accomplish anything argh argh argh argh argh froth froth froth froth FROTH.

That song makes me so mad.

I had a dream last night involving James Bond (Daniel Craig version) teaming up with . . . . Sam Vimes.

Rani Mukherji was the Bond Girl.

Angua would have been the secondary Bond Girl, except the only part of the dream I clearly remember is her snarling at Bond, and also Carrot looking startled that someone would hit on his girlfriend.

No, I don't know WTF that was about, either.

I was peering at the designs for female Blood Elves, and I have only this to say:

If someone does not make a bloof with big red hair and the yellowest skintone, and then name her Koriand'r, it will be a crime against all that is good and righteous in this world.

Seriously, THAT IS WHAT FEMALE BLOOFS LOOK LIKE. I have been trying to figure out what it was that they were reminding me of, and then it was like, "Oh, DUH, Starfire, of course."

Teapots are not really very efficient for making hot chocolate. They are designed more for seeping things than stirring them.

Nevertheless, I am now proud possesser of a cheery orange ceramic teapot (I saw it in a window while walking back from class, and immediately thought, "You know what? I want that.") I like it very much. There is something strangely satisfying about pouring something out of a teapot, I've noticed.

There are a bunch of things I should be doing, but instead I have, uh, put together a mix CD. Which I will really truly honestly be sending out this time, too.

So, uh, who wants a copy?

Emo Kitten
I . . . think the gay marriage ban is going to pass here. We tried so hard, I swear to god we did, but apparently my state hates me more than it loves puppies, kittens, rainbows and freedom.

What should Ape do if the amendment passes?

Get very drunk.
Move to New Jersey or something.
Make a booty-call to an ex-girlfriend and have hot wild rebellious luvins
Eat ice cream until my pants explode.
Vow vengence, become a caped crusader, adopt nubile (legal aged) ward.
Work to get a new amendment overturning this one.
Gamely admit defeat, stop whining about it, democracy sometimes works out in bad ways.
25th-Sep-2006 03:39 pm - A Question for the Audience
So I passed some street crazies of the Yay Jesus Signs type today, and they were telling the crowd that the person you lose your virginity to is the person who, in God's eyes, you are married to. So no sleeping around, etc. etc.

Here is my question, and I would ask them but I didn't think of it in time and they're gone now:

What if you lose your virginity to someone who isn't a virgin? How does that work? Are you still married to them, even though they're already married to someone else? And if you are married to them, then doesn't that contradict the whole thing about not allowing polygamy anymore? How, in short, does that scenerio make the slightest bit of sense?
