It is nice and quiet in casa de SnarkyPantz this evening as Husband ‘O Love has gone off on some bowling thingy in Reno, Nevada until Monday. It’s just me and the (millions of) pets for the weekend. I much prefer the sound of peegs gnawing on carrots to co-workers blathering in my ear about some goofball crap. (better yet, peegs gnawing on co-workers!)
What a boring Caps game last night! Lots of penalties (ours), such as the one for “ice picking”, I mean, high sticking (grins at semi-deaf Goddaughter ‘O Love). We did have fun together, though. So what if we didn’t always know why people were cheering or booing? We just went along with the crowd and did fine. I am still hoping that Hockey Kim’s theory about the firmness of hockey player’s butts will be tested by (ahem) someone as soon as she dates a hockey player. :)
(Am I leading GOL astray? Oh gosh no! Me? Never!)
And speaking of being led astray, why is there all this fuss about gay marriage? I haven’t read alot about why Bush (Grrr!) wants to make a constitutional amendment banning marriage between them but it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. Who cares who marries whom? Perhaps I am wrong in thinking this way but if two people love each other, whether it’s two men or two women, why can they not live together as a legal couple? Will doing so bring about the end of the world as we know it? (Please don’t point me to biblical passages outlawing it. Just don’t.)
As I’ve said for some time now (maybe not in these pages), all people really want to do is live their lives – loving and being loved. Why go out of your way to villify those whose beliefs may not be yours? Not to stir up too much more controversy but it’s like that bumper sticker says about abortion – “Don’t believe in abortion? Don’t have one.” That’s how I feel about this.
Work is still wearing me down. In fact, I think I am going to skip the Chakra weekend and spend some of the time at work, digging out of this hole I’ve found myself in all of a sudden. But I plan to also take good care of myself – get a massage, have some yummy eats and relax.
I don’t lead a very exciting life, I know. But it’s mine and for the most part, it’s not too bad. I mean, I can get up and dance to this Britney Spears song whenever I want to! Come on! That’s living! hahah
I’m a slave 4 U, dontcha know?
