Yes, I'm home. Now I just need a lifetime or two to recover. *sighs*

-Here's a way, apparently, to stick it to the far-right Christian activist group Focus on the Family and acquire some loot in the process. I don't think I'd do it (conscience gets in the way and besides, I don't want them giving my address to every rightist group in the country), but the principle of it all is...diverting. XD

-queerbychoice mentions me mentioning law professor Kenji Yoshino. If you're interested in theory on covering and the way it's harming minority rights, check out the New York Times Magazine article I posted way back in January. As I said back then, it's something that everyone needs to read ASAP, so if you haven't yet, hop to it!

-EDIT: The FDA approved the morning-after pill for over-the-counter sale at 9:20 am this morning!!!

Tired? or was it that boring?^^
24th-Aug-2006 01:03 pm (UTC)
The company was stressful. :P
24th-Aug-2006 01:05 pm (UTC)
The usual parents thing? Or more busy bodies?
24th-Aug-2006 01:06 pm (UTC)
The former naturally, on steroids. *sighs*
24th-Aug-2006 01:07 pm (UTC)
Ouch. Believe me, I can well sympathise having gone through a week of this too.
24th-Aug-2006 01:10 pm (UTC)
What could they POSSIBLY be complaining about now that you're working? :P
24th-Aug-2006 01:46 pm (UTC)
Apparently, nothing at all! *sighs* I'm determined to hide in my room till they grow up.
24th-Aug-2006 01:52 pm (UTC)
*snorts* If they haven't seen the light by now, they never will.
24th-Aug-2006 01:53 pm (UTC)
Too true. Wish I could move out really.
24th-Aug-2006 01:56 pm (UTC)
Well, if your room's big, I suppose it's not too bad. Mine these days is a hovel; I can only fit a limited amount of living into it. ^^;
24th-Aug-2006 01:59 pm (UTC)
Well, mine is kind of medium-sized really. Fortunately books and a good imagination are infinite^^
24th-Aug-2006 02:02 pm (UTC)
And what, exactly, does "medium-sized" mean? ^^;
24th-Aug-2006 02:08 pm (UTC)
I don't know. Not too big or small? Though my room looks small with all the furniture in it.

I woke up with a low grade headache this morning so my thoughts are weird and my typing is full of typos too^^ I'm afraid I'm not completely "online" today.
24th-Aug-2006 02:13 pm (UTC)
Heh. My room's probably "small" by your standards. One and a half people could lie flat on my floor comfortably. ^^;

Well, I hope you feel better! I wonder what causes all these headaches you get...
24th-Aug-2006 02:17 pm (UTC)
Stress? Not enough sleep? My parents? All of the above? XD
24th-Aug-2006 02:19 pm (UTC)
I dunno...I have all the above as well and I almost never have a headache. (A literal one, anyway. Metaphorical is a different story.) ^_~

Do you take a lot of medicine for your headaches?
24th-Aug-2006 02:20 pm (UTC)
I don't take any medicine.
24th-Aug-2006 02:22 pm (UTC)
Okay, 'cause I was gonna say: If you take too much of those over-the-counter painkillers for headaches, they actually start CAUSING them. Awful stuff...
24th-Aug-2006 02:35 pm (UTC)
I don't want to take too many pills if I don't need them. Call it some strange aversion to hospitals, doctors, and meds^^
24th-Aug-2006 02:41 pm (UTC)
*sighs* I'm with you there. Though sometimes I think that my aversion to doctors means that when something REALLY serious heads my way, I'll ignore it until it's too late. >_< Nearly happened already, for that matter.
24th-Aug-2006 02:42 pm (UTC)
That's the bad side effect all right^^
24th-Aug-2006 02:43 pm (UTC)
Last time, I was rolling around in agony for over 4 hours before I agreed to get taken to the hospital--which is actually close enough to be within walking distance. ^^;;
24th-Aug-2006 02:45 pm (UTC)
No wonder you said the doctor sounded irritated^^
24th-Aug-2006 02:45 pm (UTC)
*laughs* I don't remember saying that!
24th-Aug-2006 02:47 pm (UTC)
I think it was implied or something. Something about coming straight to the hospital next time?
24th-Aug-2006 02:48 pm (UTC)
No, he wasn't irritated. He was just telling me that next time I shouldn't dick around and risk my life in the process.
