Take it easy, you'll get your kittens

If I had a cat, then that cat would be tortured. But in a good way. She would be filled with love. Feel safe and well-protected. There would never be cause for alarm, and there would be grooming. Today's quote is said by Spike in Tabula Rasa.

Twisted Little Homunculus

Google's Quote of the Day for May 22nd:
There is only one thing a philosopher can be relied upon to do, and that is to contradict other philosophers. - William James
It reminds me of Jonny. I started re-watching the second season of Buffy over the weekend in hope of some good cheesy lines. I was not disappointed. 'Halloween' is a great episode. Not only is it the first one w/out the little slayer spiel in the beginning, but you see the characters really develope. Not to mention 'School Hard' with Spike and Buffy's first fight, and one of the first hints that Principle Snyder is more than just "a tiny, impotent Nazi with a bug up his butt the size of an emu". I love new beginnings. Although the cheesiness between Buffy & Angel is a little much. Plus, it's fun to have Jonathan and egyptian tomb sightings throughout the oler episodes. Today's Title fromby Giles in Episode: Gingerbread

Just remember that this whole marriage thing was your stupid idea. I didn't ask to be all crazy.

I moved to Arkansas about ten years ago and received a culture shock. I grew up around a lot of single families. There were a few single parents, as well as a few teenage pregnancies - even in the Catholic high school I attended. When I started college in Arkansas I noticed that most kids my age were either pregnant, had kids, were married or divorced. Most often in that order. But overtime it became the norm to me and I realized that it was just natural. People have been doing it for centuries. Until now. A small town in Missouri is transforming thier community into a little Stepford:

"The current ordinance prohibits more than three people from living together unless they are related by "blood, marriage or adoption." The defeated measure would have changed the definition of a family to include unmarried couples with two or more children. "

It's getting eerie, what's this cheery singing all about?

Last night I had a great dream where I found an AWESOME theatre! In an old music hall with a red velvet carpet and columns! It was expected of the theatre goers to arrive in costume. There was one guy there that was dressed up exquisitely like Captain Hook. For your viewing pleasure they would show clips and reels of old musicals, only to end the evening with a favorite. Everyone was also greated encouraged to sing and dance in the aisles. Although, I had to soon leave the theatre (which was in New York City) and try to escape someone that had tried to break into my Alaskan cabin. The dive off of the ship wasn't too bad, but then I had to climb onto another one that was on fire. Yeah, I'm confused too. Today's Buffy quote from Xander in "Once More With Feeling"

Destructo Girl. That's me.

In the early morning hours it is not unlikely for Glenn and I to wake up and snggle close in the remaining minutes before Bob and Tom start heckling each other with their hyena laughter. *shudders* It is also not unlikely for us to ruffle the sheets as we scooch closer. Quite typically I fall asleep listening to the tv while Glenn tries to calm his inner nightowl. When I slept alone I could not stand any other noise in the room. Even the music from my headphones would have to be turned off, no matter how sweetly Beethoven would speak to me. Now it's not uncommon for me to fall asleep to the narration of the history of concrete or the theme from Cowboy Beebop. What is starting to become common, twice in the last month, is for a certain someone to wait patiently until the early morning hours to spring its attack on me. Glenn or I will give some kind of sign that we have made it through the night (and the thru the melodious tunes of my snores) and so we begin the process of moving closer to enjoy the last thirty minutes. This is when it happens. Not during the first scooch, or the last, but somewhere in the middle. It will wait until the covers are being perfectly ruffled and then SMACK! The remote control will launch its attack and SMACK me right in the forehead while I try to scooch closer to my still drowsy husband. Because of this, I have refused to change it's batteries. Today's title: by Buffy from 'Teacher's Pet'
