it's soo cold

So old J.D Salinger finally kicked it. I read his books, but him as a man a person, from the bios I've read, seemed like a real ass. Geesus, he had a "reltionship" with an 18 year old girl when he was in his 50s!
The girl was retarded enough to drop out of school, Yale, no less, for him.
Well, as a goodbye, I guess we can finally reckon that the Glass family won't be making any final surprise appearances. Maybe Bessy will finally let Zooey have a bath in peace now.

In other news it is so damn cold outside it was -13 earlier today, without wind and strangely it's warmed up to a whopping -11, let's not forget the old windchill, which puts us at about -21.
But everyone I saw today was wearing little, tiny jackets, no hats, sneakers, for pete's sake.
It's Canada, it's winter, and yes, it is freezing!

My cat wants my attention, so in an attempt to get it, she's gone to sit on a pile of papers..weerdo!

Racists get fucked!

"I looked in your eyes and I saw the shame
Y'all don't know that our greatness came before the chains
No you can't imagine a future where this all can change
If one of us ain't free then we all to blame
So we attack each other fighting project wars and thang
It's all the same across the board we fall for game"
Words by Talib Qweli, from the song 'Eternalist'

And isn't it the truth, yo!

I hate racists! Especially when they try to couch their hate in "normal" language.

I just stumbled upon a youtube video by some fucking "pastor" another group I hate, who was talking about how to get rid of a cold using some crap he made and an electric massager.

Fine. Good. Then I wanted to know more about who this man is, and lo and behold, he happens to be under surveillance by the old FBI. He's one of yer "good ol' boys" a disgusting, double faced evil mongerer.

Scary stuff. Shit. Let's get a few points clear, shall we.
A) There are no races, save for one, which we collectively refer to as the human race.
B) white is not a race! It's a fucking colour
C) Africa is not a god damned country, it's a Continent
D) No, it is not even remotely acceptable to refer to queer folks as "gays", and by extension people of colour as "blacks", etc...
E) We are all the same, it doesn't matter what cultural background we come from, we bleed, we cry, we're the same, end of!
F) I hate hate ,hate racist stereotyping bullshit, like people who talk about the genitals of men of colour cuz "they're bigger". That's some filthy shit. It leads to the whole disgusting line of thought that individuals of colour, namely black men , are seen as "animals" and over fucking sexual and sexulized.

the earthquake

Hey readers and animal lovers, please take a moment and sign my petition asking the Canadian Government to include animal rights into the constitution.

The Haitian earthquake is awful, what makes it even more so is that Haiti has had "300 years of forest denudation " (I got that from an on-line article by someone called Tom Gill), and therefore, it has no way of sustaining floods, landslides and the aridity that comes about from not having any trees.

I've read lots of different estimations about what the human death toll could be. No where have any animals been mentioned. I'm worried.

I know it is 'the poorest country' in the west, and so helping human lives may take precedence, however, there are some organizations like WSPA and a group from Panama called Angeles de los Animales (angels of the animals) who are giving aid to the animals.

The "new" kitten we have adopted is curled up right next to me, asleep! She's adorable. Now she's woken up and is licking my hand, the hand she's snuggled on top of. I'm typing with only one hand...

If you have any information about the animals in Haiti, let me know.
