Flamed out. [Saturday, Sep. 29th, 2007|03:05 pm]
The richest girl in town.

[current mental state |done]

At 3:00 p.m., I am standing on a sidewalk in Walnut Creek waiting for a locksmith to come and let me back into flipping_hades's car. You see, when I arrived here almost five hours ago for my annual exam at Planned Parenthood, three born-agains were camped out front with their "Abortion is Murder in Gods [sic] Court" signs and pictures of fetuses to wave at me while I parked and entered the clinic. Never before have I actually had to contend with these people on my way into a PP clinic anywhere else in the country, but alas, I am on the wrong side of the Caldecott ("Culture Stop") Tunnel, and I suppose that their fire and brimstone, while having no effect on my intention to continue having godless, non-proceative sex (sometimes gay sex, even!) or to have an abortion if and when I deem it necessary, did fluster me enough to do something as asinine as lock my keys in the car.

And though I was told more than two hours ago that the locksmith would be here in 45 minutes, the most recent call sets his arrival at half an hour from now. So, no laundry is being done at this time, no cleaning in advance of TDM's arrival on Monday, no Love Fest festivities are being undertaken. Score one for the vulgar, anti-choice bible thumpers!

I may go home and masturbate out of spite--once I can get home, that is.

In other news, I intend to do some housecleaning around these parts pretty soon. My patience is null these days for flamewars on my journal. If you feel like I'm talking about you, I may be. If you'd like to chat about it, I'm game. Comments are screened. But I am officially done with this blog being Cultural Studies 101. I don't get paid to suffer insults and name-calling from fools and their friends. There are better ways to engage difficult topics than by poking at me with sticks.

:( That sucks.

Don't let the bible thumpers get you down. You should clearly do something they would not approve of right away.

well you should have called anyway! we would have come bearing keys. and potentially fire-bombs.
although you may have saved my blood pressure -- everyone has their hot-buttons and the anti-abortion freaks protesting planned parenthood is one of mine.

and mine.

i propose we all go have lots of godless sex and masturbation until we feel cleansed of their presence.

and lauren, you must have been someone really evil in a past life for all this fucked up karma.

Every time I read about the anti-choice idiots, I'm reminded of a piece John Waters wrote years ago on his pet peeves. One of them was abortion protesters. He said every time he goes by a clinic and sees them out in force, he rolls down his window and yells "I wish I was a girl so I could have an abortion!"
