Grist gets a gold star, a million dollars and a pony

Really he should get big smoochy kisses too but I'll leave that to all you girls because if I did it he would be embarrassed. Why? Because he's lovely, and because he made my machine go. It's whizzy. No specs for the geeky, sorry. But those who actually care probably already know since the parts were donated. Big smoochy kisses for the donators too. ;-)

I was thinking this morning how this time last year I barely knew anybody in Wellington, and now my life is full of really cool people. I feel blessed. I'm not going to name anybody because then I'd probably forget someone, but to everyone who's in my life, this means you. I'm glad I know you and I'm glad you want to know me. *hug* [/sentimentality]

OK. Flatting 101. If you have a flatmate who's not doing as much around the house as they should/normally do, before you go bleating to anyone else about it, consider this:

A) You should talk to them first.
B) There might be something up with them that needs support, not backstabbing.

Consider yourself told.

Anyway, reminder ladies, if you see grist today, give him a big fat smoochy one for me, K?

..and don't sit on toilet seats either, girls!

A report has been published on what abstinence-only programs are teaching American kids about sex and gender roles. Bush has just increased the funding to keep teaching them this. It'd be funny if it wasn't so scary. Among the more 'amusing' teachings are:

A 43-day-old fetus is a thinking person.

Some course materials present as scientific fact notions about a man's need for 'admiration' and 'sexual fulfillment' compared with a woman's need for 'financial support.'

I don't know what to think. Next year they are going to spout this crap to twice as many kids. Read the bit about the prince and the dragon. I'm just wondering when they are going to come up with a tale about the prince who had his princess publicly stoned for saying that she didn't want children and how that was okay because she would benefit from learning to be more submissive.

Grr.
