The Weather Outside is Goddamn Shitty

Just in time for the end of exams, here comes the deep freeze that will paralyze your life and suck the soul right out of your body!

It's Christmas time in Manitoba, all right. Sorry for the lack of posts, school got a little nuts. Now I get to shelter in place for awhile and wait for the snow to melt so I can forage for berries once more. Of course, that'll be around May...

I hate this place. This post sucks.

That's minus forty windchills for you.

We'll Sail 'Round The Porn!

Thiiiiiiiiiiis is my favorite headline of the day. The article itself is a little patchy, besides some good puns (High Fructose Porn Syrup, anyone?).

Besides, the whole thing is old hat. Anyone paying even the slightest attention to their surroundings over the last decade knows that we are being bombarded with tits, ass and dongs in a manner befitting a good firebombing. We are living in the Tit Blitz.

It probably isn't a wholly good or bad thing. Sexuality is an important part of us, but there's a time and a place for it. You can look at a Playboy and say "Well, that's for grownups and the teenagers who find it in the can after the grownups are done with it, so it's not so bad." You can look at a Bratz doll, however, and say "Hmm, this is for kids? This might be over the line." That's about my position on it.

So that's porn for you.
