Notable Quotes

You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.
--Isaac Asimov

Firefly

Holly told us about Firefly. I didn't think that I would like it because it's kinda like a SF western. But, I have fallen in love with it. Thank goodness, Netflix has the series. Thanks, Holly.

So, this is my character. Good fit since I really like her. Course, I like River, too.


Kaylee
You are Kaylee, the ship's mechanic. You are cute

as a button, chipper, cheerfull and

optimistic, though you panic in a fight.

Engines make you hot and you prefer having

sex next to a big, humming thing.


Which Firefly character are you?

Equally Unequal

The Unabashed Heretic talked about equality between men and women a while ago.

Why do certain jobs have different requirements for men than women? It's the same job.

I once applied to be a guard at the local jail. The physical requirements for women were almost half as that for the men. I could have passed the timed run by walking. If someone is trying to cause trouble, are they really going to jog instead of run just because it's a girl guard chasing them?

Come on, now. Men and women are different. Most of us relish those differences. I happen to like indoor plumbing, but some don't. Although, I might just brave outdoor plumbing to hear Vin Deisel say my name. What a voice.

But, I digress. For the most part, women should equal pay for the same job. But, if you have to have two different sets of minimal requirements to be able to hire women (or men), then there is an inherent problem in the system. Feminism has gone too far.

Employers shouldn't be guilted into lowering requirements for women who are too lazy to work to meet minimum requirements. What is the difference between minimal physical requirements and minimal educational requirements?

"Equal" does not mean "identical". Men and women are different, that fact cannot be denied. There are sound evolutionary species-survival reasons for that.

Having different requirements like that raises some pretty hard questions:

-If the lower requirements for women are sufficient to do the job, then why are the requirements for men higher?

-Doesn't that discriminate against men on the basis of their gender?

If a person of whatever gender, race, creed, color, mindset, or unfathomable kinkiness cannot meet the minimum requirements to do a job WELL, they can't do that job. Period.

Superbowl Sunday

Today is the day many sports fans will plop down and watch football. I like football, but I also cannot plop down and do nothing but watch TV.

Today, I am knitting an argyle sweater for Butch, my miniature dachshund. She is a short hair and just cannot stand anything under 85 degrees. No, I do not normally dress up my dogs. A little to anthropomorphic for me.

Lots of times, I read. Yes, this week my slideshows will be updated. By the way, PBW, you were right, there was a lot I could relate to in Rebel Ice.

Also, I'll be cooking buffalo wings, potato skins, artichoke dip, among other things.

What do you do while watching TV? (or instead of)

I've Got a Secret




Your Love Life Secrets Are


Looking back on your life, you will have a few true loves.

Two.

You've been deeply wounded in the past, and you're still recovering from that hurt.

Can anyone say *understatement* ?

You expect a lot from your lover - you want the full package. You tend to be very picky.

Knowing what you want isn't picky. Is it?

In fights, you love to debate and defend yourself. Your logic prevails - or at least you'd like to think so.

I should have been born a Vulcan.

Getting over a break-up doesn't take long. Easy come, easy go.

So far, yes. If my gf and I break up, my spark would be gone.
