Yeah. I saw that on Facebook (I'm convinced all of my friends follow George now )

Intelligent mockery is a brilliant tactic for an opponent who won't listen to reason

I'm getting very irked by the anti-equal-marriage campaign right now. Particularly the way their spokespeople keep spouting lies and mistruths, and ignoring valid questions and criticisms of their stance.

Every excuse they've put forward can be shot down easily, but they still continue. I wish they'd just be honest and admit they're bigots!

(And that's speaking as a non-gay person who has no plans to get married)


lol I get the same feeling from the pro-gay-marriage brigade =.=;;...

It's so nice when people call other people bigots when they don't agree with their stance on a subject...

Also when it comes to George Takei =.=; - I've had to block friends' posts because of the incessant sharing of his posts O_o; It's a ceaseless flood of crap pulled from various meme sites on the internet ><;

If you've heard a any legitimate reasons not to equalise marriage I would love to hear them. Similarly, if you've seen any pro-equality politician, spokesperson, or pundit being dishonest about marriage equality, please send me a link

I can start a seperate thread if you would like to discuss it civilly without derailling this thread.

EDIT: To be clear, I am only calling the people fighting against marriage equality, "bigots". If you merely disapprove of marriage between two men or two women, but aren't trying to deny them their rights, then that's OK I suppose.

Surely, you mean the XBox TVSPORTS?

It's a box that can be used to watch TV shows, sporting matches and movies. Which plugs into the TV. A marketing decision that, in the UK at least, neglects to acknowledge the existence of Sky+ or its competing equivalents; a service which does the exact same thing for a third of the price. Well done, Microsoft!

Sometimes knowing how to sew can be a curse.

I just got off the phone from my mother, thinking she was calling non-stop due to an emergency. Turns out she wants me to make 15 drawstring bags for a workplace friend in about a week - I dont think I'm being paid for it either. Sometimes it just makes me wonder how I get into these situations. It's not like I mind or anything, but it doesnt exactly take five minutes. when I was sort of planning to get started with Aya/Manchester expo costumes - who knows! Since she's calling in the favour she can help me out with it!


07 Jun 2013 - 11:54103780
use some of them to teach her how to sew then she can do these sorts of things herself, give a person draw string bags and they will be happy for a while ..teach a person to so and its one less thing for them to bother you about

My mum was the one who taught me to sew actually haha! Though her friend I know has been a bit up and down lately, her forte is cake making. It's a tight deadline and it's easy enough to do - but I'd just rather be doing other things! Sometimes it's nice to do things for others but lately I haven't been feeling it because of other things going on which is gradually sapping me of energy and willpower to do favours.

Dear students at my college,

Please put your boobs away. When you come into my office, they are at eye level, and it's not appropriate for me to be looking at them. Don't worry about the male students, they're intereted already because you are female

DO YOU KNOW HOW OFTEN MY MOTHER DOES THIS TO ME?

"Oh sure, Nicola can sew, she'll be happy to help" "oh yes, Nicola can do this" "Nicola can do that" "Oh yeah, Nicola is free then"

No prior asking me, no checking to see if I'm free or not (most the time I am, but I do have times I'm not). But MY WORD, it gets on my nerves.

Pandora: Maybe they need their boobs out to remind each other that they're females? You know, like this

Eurgh, don't remind me. A few months ago I got asked the fix the dog bed cover, which quickly turned into "Oh, but you can just buy some fabric and make a new one, right?", even though they knew that I was suffering from massive stress, including when I tried to sew anything. In the end, here I am £30 worse off (becuase of course they wouldn't remember to pay me back for the fabric even when I ask), and they have a shoddy dog bed cover - hopefully shoddy enough to stop them from asking again. I don't mind things like making trousers shorter as I have the only sewing machine in the house, but big things like dog beds are ridiculous, and small things like buttons are just them being lazy >___<. Grr.

Also, why does education have to be so stupidly expensive? I'm glad I started looking at post-grad options after year 1 of undergrad becuase I think I'll be saving up for the next 5 or so years if I want to keep going >_<

For the first time ever I had to send an email to a seller due to the item being damaged.

I know its a mistake that no one really meant to do but I was just so looking forward to trolling people with my new samurai sword umbrella lol Hopefully it will be resolved very soon since they are supposed to be good sellers (it arrived super quick so that was a good start).

Sitting waiting for the registry office to phone me after they took payment from me and instead of using my money to pay for my wedding they used it to pay for someone else's. I'm really angry!


11 Jun 2013 - 15:53103949
yumcarrots - man, that sucks, hope they refund you pronto! I'm not getting married till 2015 but not looking forward to things like registry office mullarkey.

Here's another bureacratic tale of frustration to follow on from yours:

Someone in the hospital research and development office gets back to me less than 24 hours before the deadline for submitting to that month's ethical committee meeting. Having sat on the papers for two months, they ask for a tiny change to my documentation. This change automatically invalidates all the electronic authorisations I spent months getting hold of from various people. I now have until tomorrow lunchtime to get the signatures again, including one from my second supervisor in sunny Boston MA.

GAAAAAAH.

Q: How many senior managers does it take to change a lighbulb?

A: None. They like it when their staff are kept in the dark!

There's a school of thought that if you share bad news, it isn't such a burden on you alone. I don;t subscribe to this.

Your mum would get on well with mine, who decided that I needed to hear the entire story of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas when I was in a reasoanble good mood.

If I might pop in for a quick vent.

Pick up after your dogs!! It's not as optional as you may think. As in, it's not optional. Pick up after your dogs!!

Look, I get it. Poop isn't a generally pleasant thing. But it's still one of your responsibilities as an animal owner. I understand, sometimes there are circumstances where you actually can't pick up after your dog. Sometimes you forget the scoop and don't have anything else you could use (I've had that happen). Sometimes your dog might surprise you by pooping twice and you only had one bag (which is why I now always take out at least two). Sometimes you dog poops somewhere you can't reach, such as after they've waded out into the ocean or right underneath a bush.

Sometimes you would pick up after them but you can't, I get that.

But I see all this dog poop lurking around and I'm pretty sure some of you were lazy tw*ts! Pick up after your dogs!

There's dog poo in the middle of the pavement outside our house.

It annoys me.



OMG, someone at work is really getting on my wick! She's totally incapable but gets snotty with you if you tell her how to do something! SHe does my damn head in so much. You get no peace when she's there cause she's constantly phoning and going "THIS HAS HAPPENED" and it's like drjkldg

I did none of my jobs today. I'm so sick of it.

And I want cuddles (or as good as) from my bf but his mate has just come round so now I don't get his company and I just so damn stressed T-T

I totally agree with you. I take about 5 bags with me because my dog is a pain and likes to poo at regular intervals during his walk. I always see poo around that others haven't bothered to pick up and it's just nasty. I wouldn't leave my dog's poo in someone else's front garden and other people shouldn't either. Its even worse when you have to try jump other someone else's poop to get to your own dog's poop >__> uugh.

Employment (or rather the lack of it), having no money, and just generally feeling frustrated (especially with my creative endeavours). Nothing seems to be going right.

Having the entire chain of command on holiday is great for not having to do much work, but it sucks mightily when you need answers or authorisation.

Also, the spammers on CI are driving me spare! This is a fairly slow moving board, so the joy at seeing a reply makes the inevitible crash of seeing spam sales links all that harder
