South Dakota's ban is just the beginning. Eleven other states now want to ban abortion. How can you help stop them? Help elect pro-choice candidates at the state and federal level this November. Click here to give.

The following 11 states are all considering abortion bans: Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia.

Ohio is even proposing a ban that would also make it a crime for anyone to accompany a woman to another state to receive abortion care.

The battle is here.
Elect pro-choice candidates in November.

South Dakota Legislature Passes Bill Banning Nearly All Abortions
The South Dakota Senate yesterday approved (23-12) a bill that would make it a felony for doctors to perform any abortions in the state except those necessary to save the life of the woman. The state House overwhelmingly passed the bill earlier this month. Because the Senate slightly changed the wording of the bill, the House must approve the new language, and the bill will then go to anti-choice Governor Mike Rounds (R) to become law.

Gov. Rounds vetoed a similar bill in 2004 because of concerns that legal challenges to the bill could weaken or eliminate existing state abortion restrictions, but he said in 2005 that he would feel “morally obligated” to sign such a bill banning abortion into law.

If signed into law, the bill is expected to face immediate legal challenges. According to the Sioux Falls Argus Leader, an anonymous donor has already pledged $1 million to help defray South Dakota’s legal expenses in defending the law.

This is so bad.

I keep having this fear of being mugged for my new harry potter book today while I am at the bus stop or at work because it's so valuable to me and I waited for 3 hrs to get it last night at the midnight sale. I will be home in a few hours so we can have a reading party. I couldn't get out of the whole day, but I got out of half.
Had we only paid $10 more for it we could have saved us a couple hours of waiting time. We weren't gonna go cuz de had to be at work at 6am but when we watched the clip of J.K. Rowling reading from the book last night, we had to go.

De just took me on a date to see War Of The Worlds and it was very good. Considering you enjoy suspense thrillers and are ok with sci-fi. But if you consider that the aliens were hardly shown at all, it was basically the world under attack and lots of death which could be looked at as if it were being caused by other humans. There was this one scene that was making my stomach really queasy (which doesn't usually happen, the more gore the better) where the camera panned across a section of land and it just all tinted red, even in the distance, everything was just red...like blood. Because they were killing humans and shooting blood (it looked that way in one shot) out...like a spray and it was sick. Everywhere.
The whole perspective of the family trying to get through it and not knowing what was going on made it very good for me. And I think the little girl (who is not so little anymore) was good in it. I forget her name right now, but she was in the series Taken, playing a hybrid human/alien (more spielberg stuff). Dakota Fanning! That's it. But anyhow, even if it's not aliens this movie shows what happens when the world/country is in a crisis that is uncontrollable. There are no more rules and violence and destruction is everywhere. It's really disturbing to think of. Especially since I have been reading this book called "the end of oil" and it talks about the shift from oil to a new energy supply and well, if one isn't devised pretty soon it's going to be really rocky and bascially a crisis and this movie made me think somewhat about that and how it's going to be really hard, no more easy life, and possibly random voilence from people around us just to get what they need to survive comfortably as they can. :/

In other news they showed a new trailor for willy wonka and I SO can't wait. I was waiting to see if they'd play the trailor for HP4, but no.
Ok, Jack Black playing a main serious part in the new King Kong movie? That is weird. I also want to see the chronicles of narnia, even if it turned out to be a religious thing, I couldn't tell when I was watching the lion the witch and the wardrobe when I was younger.

The most exciteing thing? Book 6, the second to last book EVER for Harry Potter comes out in less than 14 days. I am thinking of requesting that day off of work so I can pick it up early and read without interruption or is that too dorky? Obsessive? I don't care. It's what I am going to do. :D

Which reminds me that Harry and The Potters are playing a free show in coventry in some book store...

And Ida and Mates of State are touring together. I LOVE Ida SO much! And I think MOS are the cutest band ever!

For anyone who is into it there is a trailor for HP4 finally!


It's looks like it's going to stay on the dark side of things like the third movie. Oh I can't wait, I can't wait. I might have a meltdown during it.

I am on De's brand new dell computer because it has a 17 inch flat screen slim monitor. I am SO jealous. My fabulous computer now feels like a dinosaur. I must upgrade to one of these slim monitors when I get the chance because they take up 90% less space. The low grade speakers she picked are also better than any others we have ever had. Surround sound with a massive sub woofer (with bass control). Not to mention she has 140GB of space. And hers is so quiet, mine has been on so long that it makes a very high pitched sound, something needs replaced, maybe the fan? I don't know. If you know, let me know because it's really annoying. It happened to my last computer too from having it on all the time. This is all amazing, so amazing that I don't want to use mine anymore. Especially since being in the bedroom feels like a dark dungeon and being out here in the living room is spacious and sunny. That whore also got a DellJukebox with 30 GB of space! I am super jealous! She didn't think it was going to be enough space but after going through almost all her cds and using like 5 GB of space she feels like it's enough. At first she didn't think it would be. Oh how fun it is to play with. It's like an Ipod, if you don't know.

I know after that paragraph it doesn't sound like it, but De has most of her bills paid off and I am very proud of her! Since we moved out she has had bill after bill like digital camera, old bed and computer, cell phone, taxes, etc, those kinds of bills and she she has nothing left but her credit card (which was half used on fixing her car) and her new computer and jukebox are on the same bill, not 2 seperate huge bills, which I fully give my blessing to having, at least the computer part. Computers are a neccesity of our lives! And I am a stingy bastard and want one all to myself! For those who don't know, hers broke about 7 weeks ago, it was a sucky HP computer anyhow. Who are they? Pshaw.
So financial life for De looks cleared up and very good. I won't let her buy anything under contract or credit again! She has a shopping problem so I have to help her. She wants my help. She can finally start saving with me (once I get this dentist bill and school loans under control) and we can leeeeeave!

Car update - I found my title in the spot that I thought it should be, it was in an envelope that I kept passing over. De's mom followed me to Warren, to my parents house where they are going to take care of it because they are great. Getting the locks fixed (they ended up trashing both sides locks) would cost me $150 per door, and steering column $220 is only going to cost $12 per lock, $40 steering column $70 labor in Warren. See, everything is so much cheaper there. If I still lived there I would be rich and breathing fresh air.
Chicago here we come!
While we were there my mom asks me if I need anything, like money for groceries and such and I always uncomfortably decline because they give me so much already. I just can't bring myself to take even more and feel even worse. I was on my way to almost maybe saying yes but maybe saying no when De burst out saying we never ever have groceries and my meal that day consisted of a toasted cheese sandwich (and it was 10:00 at night by then) and so I got all embarrassed and said ok...and my mom gave me way more money than I expected to I could buy food. And I bought groceries. I have food now :) I didn't have to eat from any of the fast food dollar menus. This is why poor people are unhealthy and fat. We can't afford to cook but we can scrounge up $$2-3 for a meal at some super unhealthy establishment. At least I know now that at Chipoltle's I can can a "burrito" packed with rice and cheese and sour cream for $2 rather than $6. I hate beans and I hate their meat.
I should have my car back sometime soon. They are going to bring it to me this week or next.

Oh, after dropping off my car de and her mom and I went to Perkins to eat before heading back home and I kept saying I hope I don't see anyone that knows me and as soon as I walk in who so I see? My ex b/f from when I was 15 or 16, 10th or 11th grade. I won't say who he is because I am embarrassed that I even was with him. At least I didn't do sex with him and it lasted a couple months. Mostly I let him talk so much because he was friends with the current girl I was in love with and trying to get to. I would listen to him talk about their walk to school and such and violins would play. I dumped him and asked her out shortly. She said yes. But that was short lived. And thinking about it now, she is the kind of person I probably not want to be friends with now. As were 99% of people in my high school.
Back to the ex b/f, I turned in the other direction and he did not see me, for ever if he had he would not recognized me. I look completely different and much cuter. Back then I had long poofy hair and huge glasses, wearing band t-shirts that were L and XL because "I didn't want them to be too small" even though I could have worn youth smalls, which I do now. I also had tapered jeans that were slit up the side in an attempt to untaper them. I hate jeans shopping more than anything. I think jeans were at this awkward stage where they were shifting from tapered into what they are now. Every style under the rainbow. I now heart jeans shopping with De and have discovered that super low cut jeans fit normal on me because I have such a short torso. They make De slap my ass alot too.

I wanted to talk about age but I never got around to it, so I'll slip it in here. I recently turned 25 and I can now say "10 years ago I was doing..." because that is when I became a teenager and started to have my own life aside from family, at age 15. First real best friends and dating and all that junk. Like at Perkins I could say, 10 years ago I dated that boy. It's really freaky and scary to me to be able to say that. Such a clean number. A decade even. I feel like I am very old when I can say that kind of stuff. I think I am not going to say it anymore. I only kept saying it out of disbelief. "Can I really keep saying this? and it's TRUE?" Besides, Nobody thinks I am over the ages of 16-18. And I don't dress like an adult or whatever. I'm not a mom and I don't have a job where I have to look mature. So I will keep wearing my fitting black bat girl shirt.

That reminds me, I have taken up building model cars. De thinks it's cute and does it too. I am almost done with my first, with is a 78' corvette (I love muscle and sports cars and hate adult, old people looking cars)black and gray with a hood that pops up to show off my engine. Painting it is my favorite part because I get really stressed out with the gluing everything together. 1 out of 10 pieces will get glued backwards and not fit while I freak out for half an hour about the piece not fitting right and toss it away for de to look at to which she'll say "honey, it's backwards, it goes this way". I hate the picture directions, most of the time it is misleading and the arrows don't really mean for the piece to go there exactly as it shows.
I am almost done with my second car, the batmobile. It was SO cute I had to have it. I didn't paint it because it's already black, why should I paint it black when it already is?
My third model is a P-61 black widow war plane. It's super cute and I can't wait to start it. It has over 140 pieces so it's going to be a huge challenge. But I can't wait. I don't want to do anymore "regular" cars because I feel like once I have done one I have done them all. It now has to be different. Like the batmobile, or a firetruck would be fabulous. We lucked out and have a hobby shop here in Lakewood that is AMAZING. They have walls and walls of everything you can possibly build along with walls of paints. It's unbelievable. We need to put up a shelf or something to hold all of our models because we just don;t have flat surfaces around that are not already being used. The people into this hobby are hardcore! I could build a human skull if I wanted to! De is super customizing her cars with lots of detail, things I don't have the patience for and hers look very good.

That is all.

almost there [Jun. 23rd, 2005|08:47 pm]

I decided to go late into work today so I could go look at my car and get out all my stuff, little did I know that when someone steals your car and the police impound it you are no longer allowed to get any of your belongings out of the car unless you can afford to pay the impound charges. I found out I owe $138 to get it out with an additional $12 per day that it sits there. There was no other damages aside from the lock and stripped steering wheel column. The bad news is they stole every single item out of my car, down to the last scrap of trash and gooey melted junior mints that were in the glove box which I kept putting off on cleaning. Why the hell would anyone do this!? All my pictures and my homies and my cds and my data cd player and adapter were gone. Also my title and registration. The only thing they left was my car seat pillow from my mom (because I am too short without it) and all these white feathers are all over the place, like they attacked a few pillows with knives in my car. My pillow was still intact from what I could see. I have to go get a new copy of my title and registration because I absolutely cannot find mine in the apartment. I know not to keep it in the car! Where is it! My checkbook was gone too.
The key doesn't go in the ignition and it has to be started with pliers so I can get it home. With only 70,000 miles on it (a 94 pontiac sunbird) everyone says it is worth it to get it out and fix. So after much driving and heat and traffic and annoyance and having to pee really bad because of PMS and a bunch of phone calls to auto places this is what I know:
My insurance won't cover a damn cent. I have to pay $148 tomorrow to get my car out. A door lock is $150-$200 to fix and the steering column is anywhere from $220 to $450 at a starting price. After getting ahold of my parents they said they will give it to a guy they know well back in warren who does cars and will do it for a good cheap price that my parents are willing to pay for. Not to mention parts in Warren are like waaaay cheaper than here in Lakewood since it's a small town. My car is good for me and I love it and they don't want to see me without one and have to go through getting a new one again, especially since this one is relatively new.
Oh yeah, there's one more problem that could ruin everything, the car doesn't start. I was pretty low on gas to begin with and I think that's why they ditched it, it ran out. The tank says no gas and I hope once we get some gas into it tomorrow it will start up and all will be well and I will have my baby back with a club this time and possibly an alarm in the near future, if I can afford it. I hope all goes well.
Tomorrow is going to be a huge headache. I have to get a new copy of the title, get a container of gas, go to the impound place and see if it works, take it to De's mom's garage (since I have no lock) and then on Saturday I drive it 75 mins. home to fix. I also need to get a new bank account because I don't have the $33 it costs to cancel the checks that were in my car. I always hated charter one anyhow so it's a reason to go somewhere else now. I was going to use my savings to get new glasses, mine are almost 3yrs old and I can't even see without blurs around everything because they are so scratched. I had this huge savings and spent like $150 on junk and eating out because I never have the amount I have along with what's in the bank. Just sitting there with nothing to do with it but save for...? Save for something that comes up in the future.
Ever since I moved to lakewood it's like impossible to have a car and not spend all my money on it, with the insurance and the gas cost and any breaking down with noone to fix it here, the way they tow your car and give tickets is like breathing air and I've had both. It seems like this city doesn't want anyone to have a car. It's so sickening to me.
