That solo's really long, but it's a pretty song

Regina Spektor is a wise, wise woman:

"This is how it works
You're young until you're not
You love until you don't
You try until you can't

You laugh until you cry
You cry until you laugh
And everyone must breathe
Until their dying breath

No, this is how it works
You peer inside yourself
You take the things you like
And try to love the things you took

And then you take that love you made
And stick it into some
Someone else's heart
Pumping someone else's blood

And walking arm in arm
You hope it don't get harmed
But even if it does
You'll just do it all again"

I was thinking that night about Elvis, the day that he died

Oh hai.

Been a long time (like, a year) since I made a non-friends-locked post. So I thought I would make one so lurkers can come out and play, if there are any of them. If you would like to be added to my FILTERZ, please leave a comment; I approve most people.

I don't, however, approve OF most people. You are cheeky devils.

In other news, I'm okay. Key broke off in my car ignition today (boo), but the weather has been good (yay), and I am single-mindedly avoiding thinking about the future so hard I may have prevented time from advancing.

Maybe manager wanna write goddamn log-in page himself

Okay, tech-savvy types: see if you can figure THIS one out.

My desktop, roughly a year and a half ago, spontaneously developed the following problem. When I turned it on, the motherboard logo would flash, followed by a blinky cursor in the upper left side of the screen, then . . . nothing. I could leave it on for eight hours and still that cursor would be blinking. The BIOS was accessible and fully functional. Sometimes the computer would boot normally, usually after I'd left it for an hour or so.

I recently reformatted and reinstalled Windows (XP, to be thorough), but I didn't flash or otherwise mess with the BIOS.

The first problem seems to be gone, replaced by something worse. Now a third of the time when I turn it on, a motherboard system warning goes off. The warnings aren't detailed in the manual, and I can't find any info online. (It's an ASUS M2N-SLI, and the warning is a long beep followed by two short beeps.) Another third of the time, the computer boots normally, but a few seconds after booting to the desktop restarts itself and plays the system warning. The last third of the time, the computer boots normally and is fully functional, like right now.

So, um, any ideas? I'm leaning toward "I need a new motherboard" but will gladly entertain less . . . drastic solutions.

Thunder only happens when it's raining

A question: why do people like Glee? The point seems to be taking music one loves and ruining it with sanitized, plastic performances. The stars can all carry a tune, assuming one gives them a bucket, but I'm left wholly cold by their lip-synching to studio recordings.

So I ask again: why on earth is this considered entertaining?

The smell of cold, car seat is freezing

Today is Blogging for Choice Day.

I'm pro-choice.

Why?

Because I trust women, even women I don't agree with, to make the right choices for themselves and for their loved ones.

Pretty girls, you're too good for this

Well, dang, I knew I forgot something; Friday was Blogging for Choice Day. I'll make it snappy since I'm late anyway.

I am pro-choice because I would no more force someone to carry a pregnancy to term (or to abort, for that matter) than I would cut off her hand. Bodily sovereignty must be absolute, and I believe that to deny it to a woman is to deny her humanity.

Does anyone know why Firefox has turned into a massive pile of suck? And, more importantly, how do I fix the suck?

The most tender place in my heart is for strangers

Today is National Blogging for Choice Day. (The anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, for those unaware.)

It's late and I drove a long time today, so I'll keep it snappy.

Being for reproductive justice is about respecting autonomy of women and men alike to have children when and how they choose. In a perfect world, no one would ever have an abortion. But until we have a world free of rape, poverty, and injustice--for starters--we work with what we've got.

And they shall be His people

For those wondering where to go next:

A brother asked a hermit, "Tell me something good that I may do it and live by it." The hermit said, "God alone knows what is good. But I have heard that one of the hermits asked the great Nesteros, who was a friend of Antony, 'What good work shall I do?' and he replied, 'Surely all works please God equally? Scriptures says, Abraham was hospitable and God was with him; Elijah loved quiet and God was with him; David was humble and God was with him.' So whatever you find you are drawn to in following God's will, do it and let your heart be at peace."

But when I need you baby, baby, you're never there

I heard a commercial on the radio which proclaimed: "Your cat gives you endless loyalty every day!"

There's one scriptwriter who's never owned a cat.

I've just had the craziest week

As you may have realized, I've done a lot of driving lately. I have collected some bits of wisdom which I would like to share with you now.

1) Pat Benatar = musical genius.

2) If you are in the middle of nowhere, and there is only one radio station, it will be country.

3) It's impossible to stay grumpy while singing along to the chorus of "Werewolves of London." Try it.

4) If you do not like Depeche Mode, you are dead inside.

5) Listen to "Moving to New York" by the Wombats and "I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend" by Black Kids.

6) If you get pulled over while listening to "Like a Prayer," the cop should be required to sing the chorus parts.

Also, a free tip: If the speed limit is 65, you are going 70 in the left-hand lane, and people are passing you on the right: UR DOIN' IT WRONG.
