Help stop the silence.

Please understand my reasons for not speaking today. I am participating in the Day of Silence, protesting the silence faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, and their allies. My deliberate silence echoes that silence, which is caused by harassment, prejudice and discrimination. I believe that ending the silence is the first step toward fighting these injustices. Think about the voices you are not hearing today.

Of pineapples and dog suicide attempts.

I'm going to change that banner every week or whenever I get bored, whichever comes first. Now it's .hack//SIGN. Eh.

You can go read my stupid story through my FictionPress account if you're into that sort of thing. Check out my favorite authors while you're at it.

Hey, Spring Break's over in five hours.

Helen Keller with a Machine Gun!

Apples to Apples is a fun game. Especially when you do away with the "Play to X points" rule and go through the entire 750-card deck.

I went to help clean up the stage on Tuesday and Wednesday. I didn't do too much work the first time, mainly because I can't even pick up the sledgehammer. Did considerably more work the second day, then proceded to play said Apples to Apples with Jesse, Amanda, Talyah, Krystal and Laura (is that her name?) for a good three-and-a-half hours. God, we're losers.

I saw the new Ice Age flick the other day. Reasonably good movie with some good lines and fairly nice animation. Three star things I guess.

Bored? You bet.

Yeah? Well screw you, Photoshop!

There's this new layout thing I found, right?

The top picture is currently set to Gankutsuou, but I'll change it when I get bored. Probably to Fruits Basket, provided I can find the right picture. This also gives me an excuse to update my outdated links sidebar.

Easter Break is really boring so far.

How did you meet 10? *Jesse* During Up The Down Staircase.
What would you do if you had never met 6? *Chelsea* Friday nights would be considerably more boring and testosterone filled.
What would you do if 20 and 15 dated? *Kody and Alex C* I would never have seen it coming. A particularly radical reversal of character for Kody.
Did you ever like 9? *Talyah* Of course I do, she's on the list isn't she? And she's, like, one of my favorite DI people.
Have you ever seen 4 cry? *Tom* Definetely not.
Would 4 and 12 make a good couple? *Tom and Gina* 0_o. Probably not...
Would 1 and 2 make a good couple? *Josh and Bryan* Ew.
Describe 8. *Ryan* An old pal who always seems to be where you need him. Introduced me to Strategist's Club.
Do you like 12? *Gina* She's on the list, so yeah, in a purely platonic, non-sexual way.
Do you think 21 is attractive? *Bill* Not in the slightest.
Tell me something about 17. *Megan* Strange, but cool. I really oughta talk to her more.
What's 19's favorite color? *Hope* Haven't the foggiest.
What would you do if 7 confessed they liked you? *Erikka* But wait, we had an agreement! That'd throw me for a loop.
When was the last time you talked to 1? *Josh* Like, half an hour ago.
What language does 13 speak? *Brendan* English, last I checked. I swear, if I find out he's a Mexican immigrant...
Who is 2 going out with? *Bryan* Nobody, as far as I know...
What grade is 16 in? *Amanda* She's a senior, ain't she? Yeah.
What is 5's favorite music? *Cody* Doesn't he listen to that wierd German rock stuff?
Would you ever date 7? *Erikka* I suppose, but I don't think it'd last long.
Would you ever date 1? *Josh* What kind of sick quiz is this?
Is 11 single? *Peter* Not since about a week ago.
What is 10's last name? *Jesse* Gaskell. What kind of boring question is that?
Would you ever want to be in a serious relationship with 3? *Kyle* I don't see that happening. Ever.
Where does 18 live? *Hanah* You got me. I don't know where 3/4 of my friends live...
What do you think of 20? *Kody* He's good for a couple of laughs.
What is the best thing about 4? *Tom* He's got a good sense of humor.
What would you like to tell 14 right now? *Therese* Hey. Looking forward to more of your writing.
How did you meet 9? *Talyah* It was like this: I was at death's door, bleeding to death from a bullet wound in my side. The world around me went black and I woke up in her apartment to find that she had nursed me back to health. Or maybe that was an episode of Cowboy Bebop. Meh.
What is the best and worst thing about 2? *Bryan* He's been my longest friend, and I don't want to think about where I'd be today without him. The only poor qualities I can think of are little nitpicks.

Let's... go off-stage somewhere...


Anything Goes came and went. Quite well, I might add. Standing Ovations on two and a half out of five nights. That's a relatively good record. Dancing was fun, and I'm looking forward to next year, but sad by the same token as it's my senior year. My last two productions as part of this wonderful ensemble. But yeah, Anything Goes was damn good. You should've been there.

In an effort to get off my ass and write something outside of my shortlived Pojo column, I set up an account at FictionPress. Will it work? Doubtful, but who knows, Spring Break is coming up and I'll undoubtedly be bored for most of it.

So I started The Da Vinci Code, right. I'm a sucker for good conspiracy stories, but can it beat the amazing power of The DaColbert Code? Probably not.

On the gaming front, I've been absent from the ol' pool table for like two weeks now. I rejoin "the gang" on Saturday. I'm looking forward to watching my friends argue about whose night it is to DM, and then breaking for supper. Good times, good times.

I'm painfully broke right now, and this is primo DVD-release season. My collection has been untouched since I added Gundam SEED Destiny Volume 1 to it. It came with this really neat artbox that, like, folds out and you store DVDs in it. Its pretty badass. I still need to buy Gankutsuou Vol. 3 and the rest of Samurai 7. I'll get back to Ultramaniac when I feel like it.

On another note, my copy of Star Wars: The New Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology seemingly walked right off my bookshelf. I'm trying to find out where the hell it disappeared to and it's driving me nuts because my room's not that big.

Wow, I'm bored.
