Dec. 3rd, 2003

So Monday after work I did laundry and other boring household type stuff. While perusing the Straight Dope Message Boards, which I do daily and have been for coming up on 4 years now, I was reminded they have a "no flaming" rule in their Great Debates forum, so, being the witty one that I am, I posted a thread joking about their blatant homophobia in the forum reserved for complaints about the board itself. Unfortunately, I ran afoul of the "no joke threads" rule, and even though I immediately contacted an administrator to either delete, lock or move the thread, another administrator jumped in and decided to suspend my account for a week, as that's what she'd done to another poster just one day earlier. A rather lengthy discussion can be found here in sdmb. Bleargh. It's my favorite place to post and peruse, and a week without (especially considering I think it's pretty unfair) is depressing.

Tuesday was another brilliant day at work (got motivated and got some important stuff done). Q and I decided to grab dinner and start our Christmas shopping. On my way out the door Mom called to vent and cry a little, but I think I gave her some good suggestions to help alleviate the situation (he's a little goofy from the drugs, he's tired, he needs to be reminded of life outside the hospital, she needs to ask for help, etc.) I think it left her feeling better. So I met up with Q at Fashion Valley, we got food, and then we went to Build-A-Bear so he could build himself as a bear for his niece. It was so much fun! We got the corpse (Q picked Bearemy, who he renamed "L'il Q"), Q recorded a message, we stuffed it with love, friendship, happiness and hugs & kisses, stuck in a heart, stitched it up, and dressed it in Navy whites (including tighty whities)! It was just the cutest darn thing ever (yeah, expensive too). Afterwards we got Cinnabon, went back to his place and listened to the CD of the Margaret Cho concert we just went to see.

Today is work, and I'm assuming gaming tonight.

Lots of stuff coming up - That "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" play, Myke's church production of "A Christmas Carol," Q's chorus concert, December Nights on the Prado, yadda yadda yadda, plus I need to get my plane ticket home and we want to get up to Disneyland before his pass expires. Q and I need to coordinate our calendars!

Oh, I forgot to mention that Wil Wheaton looks like such a fanboy. He looks about 22 and was walking around in jeans, a geeky t-shirt and a backpack. It amused me. :)

Tell me when you're going in to the park, and I'll tell you what part my sister is playing in which parade. :)

Friends built a bear for me for my birthday last year. He lives in my living room (where else to live, but in a living room?) and he really appears to enjoy it, since he hasn't complained yet. I'm sure Q's niece will love hers too :D

Just don't get drunk and threaten to hack the board, and I think you'll be fine.

If they had them in your size, I know you'd want those little bear paws imprinted on the waistband. Admit it. Freak.

No firey balls of doom (wow, that sounded perverted), but now I am motivated to go make a bear for you, and fill it with an OVERDOSE of love, friendship, happiness, hugs, and ESPECIALLY kisses. "It burns, it burns!"
