It's a sad day

Rosie O'Donnell is leaving The View 3 weeks early, after her blow up with Elizabeth on Wednesday. Rosie was scheduled off for Kelli's birthday on Thursday and Friday's shows are prerecorded. It was announced today that she won't be coming back. I love Rosie, and started watching The View when she joined the team. Before today, well Wednesday really, I had planned on continuing on after Rosie left, but I think I'm done with The View now. Also, much props to Rosie's writer, Janine, for having to be escorted from ABC studios after she was caught drawing mustaches on pictures of Elizabeth. A little immature, but funny none the less. Have a good day. Peace out!

10 reasons same sex marriage is wrong

I stole this from a friend's myspace post. Read it before you judge:

01) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

02) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

03) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

04) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

05) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britney Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

06) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

07) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

08) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.

09) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

Seduction Style

I stole this from Monty, who stole it from someone else, so it's okay.

Excellent News!

Friday night/Saturday morning, my brother-in-law got a new kidney! He'd been on the transplant list for a little over a year, and now the waiting is over. Keep Aaron in your prayers. Everything is going well so far, let's hope that continues.

My funny story

So, a couple of weeks ago I went on a "date" with a guy who works here. Here's the set up. I don't date a lot, and I, like most women, usually go for bad guys. That hasn't been working for me, so I decide to change my game. This guy is a super nerd. He's 24, still lives at home, and doesn't even have a driver's license. Before I knew that, I emailed one of my friends who works in the same department as him and asked her to tell me about him. Well, she didn't, she just told him I asked about him. The day after I sent the email, I asked another friend in his department about him, and she told me he lived at home, was 24 & didn't have a license. She also told me I would have to teach him everything. I decided at that point that I was no longer interested. Well, a couple of days later he came looking for me, and he was so nervous he could hardly talk. I told him to give me his number and I'd call him, with no intention to call him. He asked if I wanted to go to lunch the next day, and I said yes, then someone in my family died, and I told him I just wasn't feeling it that day, I'd call him to set something up. That next day, he called me 4 times, and text messaged me at 2 o'clock in the morning. I thought that was kind of freaky, but he was just eager, so I blew it off. We made plans to go to the zoo the next Saturday. I picked him up (strike one) at his momma's house (strike two). On the 30 minute drive to the zoo, the conversation was not good (strike three), and I realized it definitely wasn't going to work out. The zoo was super crowded, so I suggested that we go to a movie so at least it would count as a date, and I wouldn't have to talk to him anymore. Well, we got to the theatre, and it was going to be a while before anything started, so I suggested that we come back to our little town, and find something to do here, knowing damn well that I was taking him home. I didn't tell him I was taking him home until we were about a block from his house. I said I didn't think it was going to work, and I was taking him home. He asked why, and I said it just wasn't going to work. He asked if it was because he was so young, and I just said yes to shut him up. We pulled into the driveway, he got out of the car, and started asking what it was, was I nervous, what, and GOT BACK IN THE CAR! I told him I wasn't having a good time, and just wanted to go, so he got out, and I left. I've seen him around a couple of times, but I haven't made any eye contact with him, and he also seemed to be avoiding eye contact with me.
Now to today. It was pouring rain, and I was outside smoking with a friend. We were standing under the overhang, where it was dry. I saw the guy and another person from his department coming. The other person from his department walked under the overhang where it was dry, but the guy totally walked through the rain so he wouldn't have to walk right past me. It cracked me up. I'm still laughing about it, and telling everyone I know. I hope he didn't think him walking through the rain would hurt me in any way, cause he was wet, and I was totally still dry. What a dumb ass!

3/4 cup softened margarine
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
2 Tbsp. milk
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup oatmeal
6 oz. pkg. chocolate chips
10 oz. pkg. peanut butter chips
1/2 peeled chopped apple

Preheat oven at 350º. In a large bowl, stir together margarine, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla until creamy. Next, beat in eggs and milk. Set aside. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Blend flour mixture into the contents already in the large bowl. Finally, add honey, pecans, oatmeal, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and apple. Put on a greased cookie sheet in tablespoon sized balls. Cook at 350º for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Makes 48 cookies.

I created this recipe during my sophomore year of high school for a Future Homemakers of America (FHA) competition. The competition was the A-OK Cook-Off. At least half of the ingredients had to be native to Oklahoma. I got first prize at sub-district.

I'm posting this here because I lost my copy and had to have my aunt email it to me. I figure if it's posted here, I'll always know where a copy is.

If you make them, let me know what you think.
