Time:5:49 pm.
so today I got an email from my aunt, it ran something like this. I haven't replied to it yet and I'm not sure I should.


Subject: Fw: Something to think about.!!!!!! WOW

Terrific!! Now let us stand up for our values, in our homes, churches, and communities!!!!

: Something to think about.!!!!!! WOW

Like all of you I receive a lot of emails and occasionally I pass some of them on. I can honestly say that this is one email that everyone should read and then decide if it is worthwhile forwarding it on. I SURE DID THINK IT WAS WORTH SENDING IT TO YOU!


Dear God:

Why didn't you save the school children at ?. ..

Concerned Student


Dear Concerned Student:

I am not allowed in schools.



How did this get started?...

Let's see,
I think it started when Madeline Murray O'Hare complained
she didn't want any prayer in our schools.

And we said, OK.

Then, someone said you better not
read the Bible in school,
the Bible that says
"thou shalt not kill,
thou shalt not steal,
and love your neighbors as yourself,"

And we said, OK...

Dr. Benjamin Spock said
we shouldn't spank our children
when they misbehaved
because their little personalities
would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem.

And we said,
an expert should know what he's talking about
so we won't spank them anymore..

Then someone said
teachers and principals better not
discipline our children when they misbehave.
And the school administrators said
no faculty member in this school
better touch a student when they misbehave
because we don't want any bad publicity,
and we surely don't want to be sued.

And we accepted their reasoning..

Then someone said,
let's let our daughters have abortions if they want,
and they won't even have to tell their parents.

And we said, that's a grand idea..

Then some wise school board member said,
since boys will be boys
and they're going to do it anyway,
let's give our sons all the condoms they want,
so they can have all the fun they desire,
and we won't have to tell their parents they got them at school.

And we said, that's another great idea...

Then some of our top elected officials said
it doesn't matter what we do in private as long as we do our jobs.

And we said,
it doesn't matter what anybody, including the President,
does in private as long as we have jobs and the economy is good....

And someone else took that appreciation a step further
and published pictures of nude children
and then stepped further still by
making them available on the Internet.

And we said, everyone's entitled to free speech....

And the entertainment industry said,
let's make TV shows and movies that promote
profanity, violence and illicit sex..
And let's record music that encourages
rape, drugs, murder, suicide, and satanic themes...

And we said,
it's just entertainment
and it has no adverse effect
and nobody takes it seriously anyway,
so go right ahead.

Now we're asking ourselves
why our children have no conscience,
why they don't know right from wrong,
and why it doesn't bother them to
kill strangers, classmates or even themselves.
if we thought about it long and hard enough,
we could figure it out.
I'm sure it has a great deal to do with...


Pass it on
if you think it has merit!
If not then just discard it...
but if you discard this thought process,
then don't you dare sit back and complain about
what bad shape this country is in!


there were cute html colors and all in it but I really don't feel like playing with this more. the reply I have half-written and probably shouldn't send:

I find it sad when people use tragedies to advance their religious ideals. One of the worst arguments I've heard was people blaming 9/11 on america's "loss of faith" that had allowed us to become ripe for other religions to attack. This kind of argument makes me wonder more and more why people listen to religion at all these days. A faith that takes grievous events like the school shootings mentioned, where many young people died of many religions and trivializes them into a simple cause-and-effect dialog bothers me. I guess I just don't see a lot of respect in the cute color-changing html. I admire the surety of faith that allows people to cheapen these children's loss of life in the name of God.


I especially love how it says that if you don't agree with their way of thinking you shouldn't complain.

so, who thinks I should start a family feud? mind you, the only person on that side of the family I like is my gramma and she doesn't really care about crud like this so I think I could probably only achieve eliminating bothersome emails and a few presents at christmas. not sure yet what I'll do

well, I still need to start a bank account out here, and then deposit the check from cornell, and then it has to clear. still have to buy summer clothes, since what I've got currently are office clothes suitable for working in an air-conditioned environment. I think I know which tent I wanna get, and I'm planning on going with a sleeping pad instead of a sleeping bag, since it should be pretty warm here after graduation.

for anyone lost, I have a week between graduation and my summer job starting. I'm looking forward to it a lot, actually. gonna get my bike up and running, get all the gear I'd need, stuff my crud into a storage unit and wander from state park to state park out here.

swimming, sleeping, hiking and bike riding. it sounds good to me.

and no, I'm not in need of floor space for that week. thank you for the kind thought. (I love my friends. I mention that I'm homeless for a week and gonna go camping and four ppl immediately offer floor space. took about a half hour with each to convince them that I really really really want to camp it out. it's not a need for a place to sleep kind of thing.)

with the arrival of evan to the risley social scene comes the reiteration of the constant realization that I am not cool or popular and never will have lots of friends or be a friendly person or know lots of people or have a good time going to clubs with lots of people or have people look forward to seeing me in the same droves that evan naturally attracts.

that exam was actually not that bad.

but I'm still not happy. I discovered that on the day I missed last week he assigned homework due today, which he didn't post to the website. so that's two homework assignments I've missed for this class.

this better be a damn good test score.

so yesterday in sculpture class our instructor was discussing the shape of lips. and he was commenting on how meg ryan went from one movie having perfectly normal lips to the next movie having very large puffy lips. and then he started discussing angelina jolie's huge lips, and was about to say that they were natural.

except that he didn't get that far

so, for the rest of the class, if you wanted to cause a minor disturbance you just had to say "angelina jolie has these really huge nips..."

yesterday on the bus katherine pretended to go to sleep on my backpack and I told her she was cute. so she protested that she wasn't. so then I ask liz if she thought katherine was cute and of course she says yes, 'cause everyone knows katherine's cute, and then I ask agnes, and she says yes, and then katherine tells me that they don't count. so then I ask her if I'm going to have to ask everyone on the bus. and she says no. so I ask if this means that she accepts her cuteness then. she says no. so I lean forward and say loudly "hey, can you help us settle something?" and a random guy near us turns around, so I say "is she cute?" and he says "well, she was really cute in renaissance fencing" and katherine says "the correct answer is no, I'm not cute" and so the guy says "well, if she says she's not cute, then I guess she's not cute. but personally I'd say she's cute" so then I turn to katherine and ask if I'll have to poll anyone else. and she says no. so again I ask if this means she's cute. and she says no and then she clamps her hand over my mouth. jeez.

friday and yesterday was wonderrful, actually. friday maddy, chris, liz, katherine, becca and I worked in the art shop. five extra-cute girls! maddy showed liz and chris how to make abstract art, and katherine helped make the art shop more colorful by painting doorjams and the wall outside the door. and becca and I made a bound journal for her. and I ate with them beforehand so had fun social dinner. then yesterday hung out with agnes, liz, and katherine. three extra-cute girls! and we went shopping and I got really really soft wine-colored yarn and shrimp!!!! and then I cooked said shrimp (Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm) and then played D&D until wee hours of the morning. of course, today I have a ton of homework.

oh, and my D&D character is a half-elf ranger who's an eco-terrorist, with a never-ending can of spraypaint. and her weapon of choice is the glaive. so cool.

you know, i thought about doing another message from my nose or something, and then I realised, I'm sitting in the middle of an engineer computing lab... I think if I started typing with my nose they'd all assume that I was an engineering student who finally cracked.

currently I'm surriounded by people growling at screens full of colorful machinery parts that they're designing/rendering. it's reminiscent of graphics except that they keep saying stuff like "why does it keep trying to use berryllium? I don't want toxic substances!"

I wonder what kind of medical disorder it would take to convince cornell that my bed needed to be replaced with a hammock or water bed...

can you just see this:
"I have a severe case of hammockophilia, I'm afraid this bed is unacceptable for a person in my condition. I must have a hammock! what, you're discriminating against the mentally handicapped now?"

And now, a message from my nose:

Thank you.

(I really was trying for certain letters. It did make a coherent message. It's amazing how few of the letters I was trying for are the ones my nose wound up typing.)

for the first time ever, my hairbrush snagged my cartilage piercing. weird.

I made teeny tiny onion rings today from an onion I liberated from the cornell demonstration gardens. they were letting all the stuff grown there go to waste. tomorrow I think I'll try for some of the ears of corn that haven't yet rotted or been eaten by squirrels.
