Prom '05 (and number five, hopefully the last!) wasn't all that great. I think I cursed myself by saying on the way there, 'Hey I've recently been craving a rap fix!' By the end of the night after listening to hours upon hours of crap rap, I was sorely regretting saying that.

But at least I have photographs before it turned bad!!

So, the cardinals finally elected a new pope. And Ratzinger is now Benedict XVI.

Just an interesting thing about the pope who will be called Benedict XVI, from a Catholic prophesy:

About the year A.D. 1139, Saint Malachy O'Morgair, Archbishop of Armagh, Ireland, wrote down a list of Popes. He listed 112 future Popes, each described by a phrase in Latin. [1] There has been increasing interest in this list among Roman Catholics, for two reasons. First, the descriptions of Popes #109 and #110 match the pontificates of Popes John Paul I and John Paul II to a tee. Second, there are only two more Popes on the list, and the last Pope on the list is given a long apocalyptic description, instead of a quaint and cryptic phrase.

c. The next Pope after John Paul II will take the name Pope Benedict XVI, in imitation of Saint Benedict and also of Pope Benedict XV. Just as Pope Benedict XV was an emissary of peace, so will Pope Benedict XVI be an emissary of peace. Just as Pope Benedict XV sought peace and spoke of peace and wrote papal documents seeking peace, so will Pope Benedict XVI do also. Just as Pope Benedict XV failed to achieve peace in the world, so will Pope Benedict XVI fail to achieve peace in the world. Just as the Pontificate of Benedict XV began prior to World War I, so will the Pontificate of Benedict XVI occur prior to World War III. After the Pontificate of Benedict XVI, World War III will begin. The Arab nations will threaten and attack the United States; they will threaten, attack, invade and conquer Europe; they will threaten, attack, invade and conquer the northern part of Africa. It is God's will.


Personally I don't believe in prophesies, nor do I follow the Catholic tradition. But interesting nonetheless. And if it is for real, I guess we won't have to wait too long to find out, right?

So now

I'm doing Senior Project. The equation that made me realize to do it went something like this:

Torturing myself through a pointless last term < doing something I'd actually want to do

I wanted to do something with psychology. I'm going to help out my aunt with her day care, so I can write something on child development. The kids' ages range from 2 months to 4 years. The only snag is that my AP English teacher is requiring us to come in 2 days a week, so I'm going to have to commute from Scituate (south shore) home every Thursday and go back on Monday night, so's I can go to school on Friday and Monday.

I was looking at my parents' wedding album. They were so cute in their early 20's, and yet so ugly in the 1970's. My dad wore a white suit and a moustache, gag, all the bridesmaids had big floppy hats, and the best men, long or afro hair.

Not much else to say, except that I love how the weather currently is deluding itself into thinking its spring. I love this 50 degree weather!

Yaaa Zach was here this weekend. And it was fun because um I went with him to his psychiatrist's office to see what it was like. And was sitting in the waiting room reading a magazine while Zach was in there when his doctor came out and invited me in to talk to him! So it turned into like a couple's therapy session, but it was fun because I met a real life psychiatrist in person.

[ mood | drained ]

A British psychologist calculated the most depressing day of the year to be ... today, January 24th. And there's a formula involved:

The model is: [W + (D-d)] x TQ
M x NA

The equation is broken down into seven variables: (W) weather, (D) debt, (d) monthly salary, (T) time since Christmas, (Q) time since failed quit attempt, (M) low motivational levels and (NA) the need to take action.

So after the peak of the holidays and the initial resolutions, it all goes downhill and you get depressed. Holidays are gone and you've already broken your resolution to start anew in the new year. The days are dark and short, and its very cold out. You also know the cold witner won't go away for another three months. And vacation is still a long month away. Plus its a damn Monday. UGH.


Well, today wasn't so bad for me considering we all had a snow day, and will have another one tomorrow! But I won't disagree that January is one of the more dismal months in New England, and I'm seriously counting down the days until Febuary vacation when I go on my cruise the Gulf of Mexico.

PS I got a 50 cent raise at work! :D

Conservatives Pick Soft Target: A Cartoon Sponge


WASHINGTON (Jan. 20) - On the heels of electoral victories barring same-sex marriage, some influential conservative Christian groups are turning their attention to a new target: the cartoon character SpongeBob SquarePants.

"Does anybody here know SpongeBob?" Dr. James C. Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family, asked the guests Tuesday night at a black-tie dinner for members of Congress and political allies to celebrate the election results.

SpongeBob needed no introduction. In addition to his popularity among children, who watch his cartoon show, he has become a well-known camp figure among adult gay men, perhaps because he holds hands with his animated sidekick Patrick and likes to watch the imaginary television show "The Adventures of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy."

Now, Dr. Dobson said, SpongeBob's creators had enlisted him in a "pro-homosexual video," in which he appeared alongside children's television colleagues like Barney and Jimmy Neutron, among many others. The makers of the video, he said, planned to mail it to thousands of elementary schools to promote a "tolerance pledge" that includes tolerance for differences of "sexual identity."

The video's creator, Nile Rodgers, who wrote the disco hit "We Are Family," said Mr. Dobson's objection stemmed from a misunderstanding. Mr. Rodgers said he founded the We Are Family Foundation after the Sept. 11 attacks to create a music video to teach children about multiculturalism. The video has appeared on television networks, and nothing in it or its accompanying materials refers to sexual identity. The pledge, borrowed from the Southern Poverty Law Center, is not mentioned on the video and is available only on the group's Web site.

Mr. Rodgers suggested that Dr. Dobson and the American Family Association, the conservative Christian group that first sounded the alarm, might have been confused because of an unrelated Web site belonging to another group called "We Are Family," which supports gay youth.

"The fact that some people may be upset with each other peoples' lifestyles, that is O.K.," Mr. Rodgers said. "We are just talking about respect."

Mark Barondess, the foundation's lawyer, said the critics "need medication."

On Wednesday however, Paul Batura, assistant to Mr. Dobson at Focus on the Family, said the group stood by its accusation.

"We see the video as an insidious means by which the organization is manipulating and potentially brainwashing kids," he said. "It is a classic bait and switch."


Somehow I think that their precious Jesus wouldn't condone this intolerance. Wow, way to stray from your Christan values. Assholes.

An intimate detail of my dinner (chicken Florentine).

When I eat meat I feel like a dinosaur
or a sabre toothed tiger. I feel prehistoric tearing
and shredding rosy pink succulent flesh.

If I had better self control I'd probably be a vegetarian.
Well already I don't eat Phish or fork.

Couscous makes me feel positively Moroccan.

Spinich makes me feel leafy. And also disgusted. I hate spinich.

One year ago, MLK weekend, I was on the streets in Boston with the homeless.
Street Retreat.

I've been enjoying these past few weeks very much. But like all good things,
It must come to an end, and now the bad begins. Midterms. But you must have bad in the world
so you can have good. Imagine: if everything were always good we'd grow accostumed to it and therefore couldn't appeciate what we had.

I bought five CDs this week. Flipping five.

My buying habits seem to come and go, and I buy everything all at once in short outbursts then go for long periods of time in which I don't.

I bought. Elliot Smith, Le Tigre, The Faint, Bjork, and Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou soundtrack. Two of these CDs I could've downloaded off Chris. But I now feel better about paying ridiculously high prices for CDs instead of downloading them for free.

Sort of.

Well. Lets see.

I'm sick. Bad sick. Thought-I-had-whooping-cough sick. Congestion, terrible coughing, chills and a fever were all the lovely ailments I had to suffer through in my interrupted night of sleeping. And it got even worse today. Now, I liked going to Florida last week to get some time under the sun, but I did say that I'd like the place where I live to have seasons, such as here in Massachusetts.

Let me completely take that back. I hate winter right now. And I hated fall too. Ever since we shut the windows I've had allergies to whatever is in my house - probably all the dust. It is an antique house after all. Plus its damn cold in my room. Well now I'm allergic and sick.

But enough complaining. I willl admit that I do like seeing the snow coat everything, and hearing the snow (or maybe its uh, freezing rain) falling on the tree branches next to my room. Plus having a blackout was pretty cool. I walked all around Old Town in the slush (probably why I got sick) with Zach pretending like it was the olden times when there was no electricity. You should've seen my house when the blackout first hit. It was pitch black and huge and scary as mofo. But people lived in this house for a century and then some without electricity, so it was kind of cool. He, his parents and I ended up playing scrabble by candlelight, and I was actually kind of disappointed when the electricity came whirring back on.

And now, some picturesCollapse )

Just a few thoughts, in list form.

  • How rad is Siouxsie Sioux?
  • Christmas is in 2 days. I still need to buy a lot of presents. So far I've bought my dad a fondue maker, a 'Poetry Speaks' book for Zach and a back massager for Mom. So if you secretly read my journal mom then your surprise is ruined. Nyah. =P
  • I have no Christmas spirit. I had no Christmas spirit last year either. But, unlike last year, we actually have a real tree and fireplaces. So using deductive reasoning, I've concluded that its not the material things that give you spirit. Gawsh you think I'd learn that from all those Christmas specials on TV. Anyways. It's just that I am a mopey malcontent; veritable old Scrooge, m'dear!
  • It don't matter if I like it or not because she only wants the wrong way.
  • I'm going to Florida in 3 days. Um, yay for warmth and change of scenery, I guess. I haven't travelled anywhere for three months. That's three months too long.</font>
  • My cousin Willem is going to be living with me for the remainder of the school year. He will not be going to my school, but tutored at home. I lose a sister to Scotland and I gain a brother-cousin. Damnit-janet will I ever enjoy the solitary life of Only Child!</font>
  • I'm really really really sick of school. Astronomy, Statistics, Deadlines ... DIE!
Oh my god what a mopester:

"let me die cause i never, never sleep alone"

EDIT: nEXT week's weather for where I'm going in florida...nice! Tue Dec 28 Partly Cloudy 69°/54° Wed Dec 29 Partly Cloudy 73°/56° Thu Dec 30 Partly Cloudy 73°/56° Fri Dec 31 Partly Cloudy 71°/56° Sat Jan 01 Partly Cloudy 73°/54

Baha, a really weird thing happened at work tonight.

So, my math teacher has been absent for the past two days because he's had a case of shingles. We also happen to have a big math test scheduled for tomorrow, and I don't think anyone is prepared. Tonight I was complaining to Joe about it, and we start talking about this math teacher, all the while I'm ringing up this lady's order and Joe's bagging it. Joe says something to the effect of, "We had a girl in my math class last year named Roxanne, and [the teacher] would always randomly sing "ROXANNNE" (a la Sting) and I just kind of laughed and said "What a weirdo." And we talk more about the fact he has shingles. Then I had to ask the woman for her ID for the alcohol...

Her last name was the same last name of my math teacher. I raise my eyes and all I can say is, "Are you...?" And she nods and says, "Yes, I'm his wife." Oh-my-gosh my face turned like 10 shades of red, I'm sure. Out of all the checkout lanes she had to be in mine at the same exact time I'm talking about her husband. It was crazy! Anyway, I mention the fact that we have a math test tomorrow that no one is ready for, and she's like "I can find out if he's still going to make you take it." So she calls him on her cell phone, and well atleast I didn't mortify myself for nothing - he agreed to push it back to Monday. Hoorah!

I bet that story tops Jingle Ball! Nyah :P

At work today my love in British men was reinstated. A most adorable British guy came through my line and I felt like I was in a Bridget Jones movie with Colin Firth or Hugh Grant or some other equally charming bloke.

An example of a British man I love so dearly. Moz with a kitkat! So cute.

Unrelated, or maybe not:

The "abstinence-only" programs, which get $170 million from Congress this year, teach children and teens the benefits of abstaining from sex until marriage. By law, they are not allowed to discuss any benefits of birth control or condoms in preventing the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.
- source

STUPID STUPID STUPID! And here our country was with the lowest teen birth rate in decades. Apparently, um, sex ed wasn't working? WTF? Some kids are gonna screw no matter if you teach them abstinence or not, so after preaching abstinence in sex ed teachers should add in "...but if you do choose to have sex, here are some contraceptives so you don't get pregnant or all STD'd up". Godamnit I hate how Bush and his religion have to come before common sense and education.

Ok, this pisses the hell out of me.

A druggist refuses to give out someones prescription for birth control pills because of the druggist's moral beliefs.

Wow, what is our country coming to. Seriously.

If the pharmacist at CVS denied me my pill, then I'd go fucking apeshit on him. Hey asshat, there's nothing illegal about birth control pills (yet, unless Bush gets his way), so do your goddamn job and give me my medication. They'd probably like to ban selling condoms as well. These must be the geniuses who really believe that whole 'Abstinence Sex-Ed' program is really going to work. Riiight.

Going by this logic, shouldn't Walmart employees also be allowed to refuse to sell their customers bullets?

As a grocery store cashier, I wouldn't tell a customer they can't buy meat products if I were a vegetarian. I'm not vegan nor a vegetarian, but I wouldn't let my belief system INTERFERE WITH OTHER PEOPLE'S. Even if I were kosher or halal, I'd still let OTHER people buy it. Because HEY they might not share my beliefs! Wow, what a thought - its called diversity! and tolerance!
