My prayers and my wishes right now are all with the people of the UK, and especially Londoners. This madness needs to stop, these people were guilty of nothing more than going about thier daily business of work, errands, fun etc. But because of politics and religion (two things that should never ever mix) they are now dead, or injured. When is it going to end. When will people stopping killing each other in the name of "My god is better than your god". I just hope that by the time we all finally learn to live with each other, there are more than two of us left.

I've seen a few meme's going around, this one I took from my friend Linda (who has one locked diary and one friends only so, there is no use in linking, but those who know who she is know where to find her anyway).

Five things I don't get

1. Competitive Eating
In a world of faminine, anorexia/bulimia, food addiction, food shortages, poverty, and war, do we really need to take gluttony and turn it into a competitive sport, I mean should we also have a contest for the biggest rage fit, and maybe also one for the laziest person on earth. With the millions of kids and adults who go to bed hungry every night, with the number of women dealing daily with body and food issues, only Americans (and Japanese, and British and Australian and probably a few others) would decide to make a game out of watching some poor slob down 50 hotdogs in 30 seconds. Talk about conspicious consumption run amok, do the people who run these contests have any idea how many food pantries they could help, how many food kitchens, how many hungry families. Do they even care that thousands of people right here in the US go to bed hungry, while they stuff themselves sick in the name of fun. Disgusting!!

Why do some people have no mind of there own, what ever is the newest, latest, coolest, they have to have it, own it, wear it, show it off. It doesn't matter if they need it, can use it, can afford it, actually like it, or look good in it. If its the lastest coolest , newest, everyone else has one they have to too. God forbid they should be themselves or have an identity, or be individuals. I think half of them don't even know who they are. And they they wonder why they are miserable and feel so empty. One of my favorite quotes is "..To thine own self be true.." I don't really care what so and so is doing, I'm me, not she. If I do, have, want something it is because I like it, and it is me. I could care less what is cool. When I was young I went thru a phase of having to have what ever new fad all the other kids had, I wanted to fit in. Thank God I had a father who knew that was all bullshit. I finally realized as an adult just how right he was. I no longer give a damn what other people think, and I believe I am much happier because of it. It also helps that most of my friends are geeks and proud of it.

3.Reality Television
Let me first appologize up front to my readers who I know are fans. Maybe you can explain it to me. Most of it is either freaks on parade, carefully chosen to be as out of this world as possible, because after all Joe and Jane regular people just don't make interesting voyaurism. The ones that put groups of people together or involve some sort of swaping usually have shrinks and other people helping to make sure they pick those that will generate maximum conflict, after all who wants to watch people work together and cooperate, that isn't fun, but watching people call each other names, and threaten to beat each other brains in, that's entertainment, especially when we can have drama of who is sleeping with who behind who's back and who is plotting against who. And hey if things get really boring, we can find some basically average people with really low self esteem and humiliate them on national television for profit, and give them free unnessary plastic surgury to encourage there dismorphic body views, and then we'll take a bunch of no talent wannabe's and a few who really can sing and make fun of them. Oh and by the way, its not really all the real, they do have writers, after all if some body doesn't have an issue or a conflict with someone else people might turn the channel and watch something a little more realistic , like Battlestar Galactica. I won't even start on the shows designed to see if one spouse will cheat on the other, or that try to play matchmaker, and Beauty and the Geek - talk about stereotypes, a women can be be beautiful and smart (and not shallow), most geeks are not social misfits - in fact most of us don't look like geeks that is an unfair stereotype, just like most blondes are not stupid. (end rant - please don't hate me).

4.Organized Religion and the Political parties
It seems to me these two have done almost as much if not more harm than good. Instead of working together to try and improve our planet and make life better for all, they become less about people and doing what is best for the most, and instead polarize in to mud throwing constests of We are the only right and truth, people who believe XYZ are a bunch of **insert insult here** and any one who disagree's with us or isn't one of us, doesn't matter. Instead of trying to fix things, all it does is disolve into us vs them, Our god is better than your god, we are right and you are wrong, not condusive to finding a solution to anything. And strangly the groups most worried about their members being recruited by something they percieve as evil are the ones out trying to do the most recruiting.

5.Public Displays of Affection
Bedrooms aren't just for sleeping. If I want to watch porn I will get porn. A kiss is fine, groping belongs behind closed doors.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
