My mom and I went to eat at Applebee's with my grandparents and my sister. Had fun. Had a steak. Good eatin'. Beforehand, we swung by Wal-Mart to use the Coinstar machine because my mom had a ton of loose change in her purse. I also brought some from the M&M tin I keep my own spare change in as a sort of piggy bank. It totaled $19! Yikes!
While we were there I looked for the Cabin in the Woods novelization, as I'd seen it at another Wal-Mart. However this one didn't have it. How annoying! What they did have were Stephen Colbert's I Am a Pole (And So Can You!) and I was strongly tempted to get that instead, but then I noticed, of all things, they also had Volume 1 of The Walking Dead. I'd heard good things about it but never gotten around to reading the comics or seeing the show. It was cheap (for Wal-Mart anyway) so I nabbed it. So far, I'm liking it.
In other more relevant news, I'm disgusted by a certain North Carolina pastor who will go unnamed. Mostly because I forget his name and am too lazy to Google him. But he said something akin to gay people would die out if put behind an electrified fence and denied food because "they can't reproduce." Uh, no, they'd die of starvation or by getting electrocuted; their (supposed) inability to reproduce wouldn't enter into it. What an idiot.
And, hell; gay people can reproduce; a lesbian and a gay man can fuck and have a child. It's physically possible, you old fool, and if they needed to, they could so reproduce. Whether they'd want to or not is a different matter.
I also love that this is even considered any kind of solution to the "problem" of homosexuality. Consider: even if every currently living gay person were to be killed, there'd be new ones in one generation, because like it or not, asshole, it's just something that happens.
