Christopher Reeve died. Of complications from a bedsore. What a terrible way to die. I have no words. But rest in peace.
And rest in peace, Matthew Shepard.
Yesterday was National Coming Out Day. This time last year I almost came out to my mom--as a slasher. Which is not the same thing. But I am still too indecisive to come out as a bisexual, and even if I did, my mother would never believe that I'm "bisexual." And if I did show up with a girlfriend she'd skip over bisexual and go to "lesbian," directly to "lesbian," no $200 for her. Which sucks. I think it's much harder--and I say this from an outside perspective, since I honestly don't know what the fuck I am, haha--but I think it's much harder to be bisexual than gay in the respect that you have, like, no street cred. Straight people think you're just confused and Gay people think you're just in denial. It's stupid, especially because most people the world over are bisexual to some degree (see Scale, Kinsey). Still sucks, though. and I wish I could fucking make up my mind already.
Dorrie wants us to tell her what we truly love, meme-style. I think my loves are pretty obvious. But here are the less obvious ones. ( Read more...Collapse )
Thank you for the poll responses! they're fascinating and fun and I love that the moment somebody says "books!" everyone perks up and everyone has an opinion. It's lovely. I'm amazed that Nick Hornby beat out Dostoyevksy! But since I've already started on High Fidelity anyway, I'll read that first, and then tackle the harder stuff. Which reminds me. That movie-reviews-for-slashers thing I wanted to do. I was thinking that I might do it on livejournal instead, because I will never, ever, ever code the html for the site, I already know that. I am lazy and unmotivated, but LJ I can do. Would that be a worthy enterprise, or just more posts to filter out?
I never want to do the popular memes at the time they're going around. Like, the unpopular fandom opinion thing is going around, and I have nothing to say. Next week, I will be full of unpopular opinions, but I won't be able to post because the meme will be over with. I am doomed to be left out in the meme cold.
By the way, the ask any of my characters questions! meme is still on. Hint hint.
I have been listening to this song on loop for like an hour. I love it. You should too. Enjoy. Carbon Leaf - Let Your Troubles Roll By.
