Pride

Tonight, I am particularly proud to be Canadian.

Canada Parliament approves same sex marriage

I like this quote from our Prime Minister: “We are a nation of minorities and in a nation of minorities, it is important that you don’t cherry pick rights. A right is a right and that is what this vote tonight is all about.”

And this one from Justice Minister Irwin Cotler: “Rights are rights. None of us can or should pick and choose whose rights we will defend and whose rights we will ignore, the government must represent the rights of all Canadians equally.”

You know what’s good? The cheese, tomato and onion sandwich I just had. I made it myself.

You know what’s bad? The cult of the religious right. Given the hate, fear and misinformation they spread, one should only conclude that they were sent by the devil himself.

I, robot

Filed under: — jen

Last night the following conversation took place:

Me: I need a robot to carry me into the bathroom and brush my teeth for me. Then it can carry me upstairs and tuck me into bed.

Mark: Me too.

Me: No, only I can have a robot.

Mark looks like he is going to cry, makes a face, then sulks

Hairy scary

Guess what comes up first on Google for the following search string:

hairy pubes

That’s right. This blog. How proud am I?

And I know I’ve asked the question before, but is there such a thing as hairless pubes? That search string also ends up on my blog.

You’re nobody till scumbunny loves you

The other day there was a little bunny rabbit in our back garden. Mark called it a scumbag. Little bunny rabbits are not scumbags (even if they eat all the vegetables you planted).

Mark is a mean man.

Blogging from the angry chair

Filed under: — jen

Stuff that is really pissing me off…

The pope has said that gay marriage is fake. There are far too many angry, self-righteous, mean, narrow-minded, petty, ignorant homophobes out there. Surely the place in hell these people claim is the destiny of homosexuals is in fact reserved for the very people with the hate-filled hearts.

If a “marijuana pill” was invented and distributed by pharmaceutical companies, would it be acceptable? What is up with denying sick people relief? How is medical marijuana any different from something prescribed in pill or injection form?

I understand Laura Bush was campaigning recently for women’s rights in the Middle East. What about back at home, where women are being denied their legally prescribed birth control pills by some pharmacists?

Speaking of which, I found this, via her. Please consider doing it.

Oh, and with regards to these charming and morally motivated pharmacists, what about Viagra? Are they refusing to fill prescriptions for Viagra? How do they know the men filling these prescriptions are not doing so to enjoy some special time with their mistresses? Or thirteen year old girls? Or prostitutes?

Finally, I leave you with these two quotes:

“We’ve been attacked by the intelligent, educated segment of the culture,” - pastor Ray Mummert, creationist.

“You can safely assume you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.”
A priest, quoted by Anne Lamott in ‘Bird by Bird’

Just one day out of life

Filed under: — jen

Apart from the minor fact that I spent two hours on the phone with my boss today, I am officially on holiday. For two weeks. Yee-ha!

The holiday festivities will kick off with part two of Mark’s birthday celebration. We did the friend thing on his birthday weekend, and tonight we are doing the family thing.

Tomorrow, my two younger brothers and their respective girlfriends are coming to do yardwork. I will be sitting in a chair on the deck sipping something cool and delicious while pointing to the things I want done.

We will then have another barbecue and consume large quantities of alcohol.

Next Friday is Blue Rodeo and dinner with her and him.

Days of doing nothing but gardening, eating and sleeping will follow.

Ah holidays. Ah summer. Ah bliss!
