Oh, yeah! Canada won the GOLD in Women's hockey! Effing fantastic. I've been watching their games all along, and I was so proud of how well they were doing and then tonight they did not disappoint at all. I'm just super proud of them =)
I had a kinda weird conversation with this girl I know from school, today. We were talking while waiting for our rides and she's joking around, and then she starts in about how she doesn't like emo kids and she hopes her boys don't grow up to be emos; AND then she says "I think I'm losing the older one already. I caught him the other day kissing his friend; His friend is a boy.
I missed my bus for school today because the stupid back gate wouldn't close. Did that sound dirty? Kidding! lol. Anyways, we got quite a lot of snow yesterday and last night. It was so pretty and nice for a change. When I took my little dog out for a walk today we were walking up the path and I let go of her leash and we just went running in the snow. It was fun and reminded me of being a kid. I wish I had friends that liked to still go tobogganing and snowboarding and all that stuff cause dammit, I miss it. But instead I sit inside all day long getting in worse shape and worse health.
The woman who plays Rita on Dexter is now playing a lesbian on Desperate Housewives. They've even hinted, and I think said, that she'll have a relationship with Katherine, one of the housewives. I'm definitely going to try and start watching it now because I watched her parts on Youtube and she seems like an interesting and likable character. What pisses me off though, is the ignorant fools on the DH Facebook page; some people are writing all these nasty things saying the show better not develop a gay relationship because they are sick of TV shows shoving gay people down their throat.
I was actually pretty happy about my sister's announcement that she is having her wedding this summer, but now I'm just super stressed. Mostly it's because of the question that hit me today : "What the hell am I going to do with my two dogs?!" We'll be gone for at least two days! So, now I just don't know what to do. There's no way I'm putting my little dog in a kennel. Years ago my parents put our older dog in a kennel, and when they got him back they had high suspicions that the people at the kennel didn't treat him right. You should have seen him when we got to his cage there.
Today I got to see Maria. I finally ventured into my Comm class after avoiding it for a week or so. After I sat down at a computer she came over took the one right beside me. I'm so shy but eventually I looked over and said "Hi." Then we started talking and I'm pretty sure we we're pissing off a lot of the people in the class because it's supposed to be quiet; I'd be pissed too if I were them, but I just couldn't help it, I haven't got to talk to her in a while. It makes it difficult for me to shut up because I just want to talk to her and get to know her better.
The Canadian Men's hockey team beat Norway 8-0. Oh, yeah, that's right, SHUTOUT!!!!!!!!! I love my hockey, if you couldn't already tell ;)
Through the first period all I could hear was my dad yelling: "What the hell was that," "You guys suck," "Take the man, take the man!" And other things like that. lol.
My sister is officially getting married this summer. I guess my dream of going to her wedding with a girl are smashed. Oh, well. Anyways, I'm going to be a bridesmaid, so now I've gotta go look for dresses with the other bridesmaids, we've all gotta match. She picked a nice colour, cobalt blue!
I just watched Tipping the Velvet....and oh my gosh, it was so good. I wasn't expecting to like it all that much judging by the cover. But I really liked it. It was all about this girl Nan and her coming of age story. Realizing she's attracted to girls and then going on to actually experiencing life, and in the process falling in love. It was set in the late 1800s in Britain. Also, I was so totally enamored/in love with Florance by the end of it :)
I got Tipping the Velvet today from the library. It's about a couple of British lesbians in the 1800s. And I assume, all the shit they have to go through to conceal their relationship. I'm not sure I'll like it, but I'm going to give it a shot. It's the tv/film adaptation, not the book. I also got Lies & Love, but I'm really not digging the main character. She's the complete opposite of me, which is usually okay, I don't need to relate to the characters for me to like them. But she's a really big snob, and I really just don't like the way she comes off.
Has anyone watched the documentary "For The Bible Tells Me So"? I'm thinking about getting it from the library tomorrow. This is what Flixster says about it: Grounded by the stories of five conservative Christian families, the film explores how the religious right has used its interpretation of the Bible to support its agenda of stigmatizing the gay community and eroding the separation between church and state.
I wish I had heard about this yesterday, since I was at the library today. Oh well, back to the library again tomorrow.
I finished reading Rose of No Man's Land by Michelle Tea, today. It suckssss. Not the book, but the fact that it's over. I enjoyed it a lot. I'm even fine with the ending (that's very rare). Now it's over and I have to search for another book to read. I'm actually rather afraid to go back to the Young Adult books after reading Rose. Because it was so good and a lot fuller than the YA books I've read. I've got Annie on My Mind, which I shall attempt to read, but I'm afraid that nothing's going to be quite like Rose.
Today when I got to school, I did my usual routine: I went to my locker, dropped off my books in class and then headed to the bathroom, but today was different. I turned the corner into the bathroom and what did I see? A bunch of girls standing there half naked changing their clothes IN THE MIDDLE of the bathroom. One stood there bent over and stared at me and then apologized for being in the way. Then me being all akwardy cause I wasn't expecting any of this, tried to weave my way through the group of them, to get to a stall.
I wish that I could go to the gay youth group that's in my city. I really wish I could, but that would mean explaining to my parents where I'd be going. Eeek! Not happening. It's really neat, though. I've been searching and I found this group that allows people up to the age of 25 to go, so that means I could actually go to it! Pity that, at this point, I won't go. I'd really like to go and be able to talk about everything I feel, about where I am, and be able to talk to people that are going through similar things.
My phone and Facebook don't seem to want to like each other right now. I've been trying to send some photos from my cellphone to Facebook, but it keeps saying it's unable to. You still send them to firstname.lastname@example.org, right?
All I want to do is have some actual photos of me on Facebook but the universe, apparently, doesn't want me to. lol.
