I'm Sorry

I know I haven't posted in a while. There hasn't been much going on that I feel has been worth posting. Everything seems to be getting on pretty well, so I don't have much to talk about.

I am sure thing will change when that happens I will be back.

E Meet the Family, Family Meet E

I keep promising that I am going to blog more, but I don't seem to find the time. Actually it's more like I find me self sitting in front of my computer looking "art" pictures of the male form.

So what's been happening with me? Well first let me say it's very nice of you to ask. Last week the E came to dinner at my sister's house with my family to celebrate my mother's birthday. It was the first time any of them had met.

Things at dinner went well, as I expected they would. E however was less optimistic about the outcome and was a bit nervous. That was due partly to the fact that I told when a person is new to the family they are always asked to say grace before dinner, so it might be a good idea that he have something prepared. Not only is he Buddhist, but also he knows nothing about Christianity the prospect of having to say grace immediately sent him into a panic. I completely forgot to tell him that it was a joke until he sent me an instant message with what he planned to say. Yes, I'm a bad boyfriend.

Most the evening the E kept himself busy doing what ever my sister told him to do. He was very happy keeping a watchful eye over the boiling pasta and chopping tomatoes for a salad. With twice the older sisters as me he isbegin be beign told what to do.

There was only one uncomfortable moment, when my grandmother asked him if he liked hockey. He looked unsure how to answer her, like he was thinking if he said yes she would have been said something rude or even worse invited him over for my grandmother's two favorite things a Bruins game and a highball. He told her the truth that he didn't know any thing about hockey and he wouldn't be able to hold his liquor the same way she could. Unfazed she turned to my father to tell him that she would prefer it if next Sunday he would keep his homily a bit shorter Mass is only supposed to be 45 minutes for the third time.

Bless Me Father for I Have Sinned

I didn't vote.

Of course I feel awful about it. What happened was I didn't register in time for the election, not that it's an excuse I know. During the primary I called my town hall to find out if I could vote even if I'd "forgotten" to register when I moved last, they told me no. I called the last town I lived in they told me no as well.

I was planning to go register so I could vote in the election but the day I planned to do it the boyfriend decided to take the day of so we could hang out and since I have the attention span of a house fly I forgot to do it that day. Two days later I leaned I'd missed the window.

So here before you all I religious me right to complain about the government until the next election cycle.

I'm truly sorry.

World Vegan Day

Ok I get it you don’t like to eat meat. Now will you shut the fuck up about it?

Below is a comment I posted on a blog discussing the “heath” benefits of veganism.

On that note I'll take my filet rare enough that it's sitting in a pool of it’s own blood when it's served.

As I'm sure you are aware there are many other things that go into over all health than just eating meat or not. I would suspect that when you became a vegetarian you became much more aware of what you were putting into your body to make up for the fact you were no longer eating meat that lead to the health benefits and not giving up meat alone as your post suggests.

Most the people I have met who have been vegetarian were self-righteous and used their vegetarianism as a tool so they could feel morally superior to others, just as the religious right does (not that I’m standing on a cyber soapbox to preach to the masses).

Furthermore I have read some literature PETA produced about dairy farming that was both erroneous and misleading. PETA uses the same scare tactics and distortion of facts about eating meat that the Bush Administration uses about terrorism.

Every time I’m not blinded by my shampoo, I thank a bunny.
