I just signed the following petition addressed to: Arizona Sentate, Arizona State Legislature, Debbie Lesko.

Stop the Arizona birth control Bill

If this bill passes the senate then women of Arizona would be forced to provide documentation that birth control is for medical purposes only. The "company" would not be required to cover birth control if it was for prevention of conception. Additionally this bill would give companies the right to fire women if they discovered that she was using a contraceptive to prevent pregnancy


Cluegirl note: Please don't roll your eyes and click past because you're tired of this nonsense. We're all tired of this nonsense. We're exhausted with the Tiny White Men That Other White Men Seem To Insist Need To Live In Our Ladyparts, and we're tired of being treated like cattle and chattel just because we're capable of conceiving life, but WE CANNOT IGNORE SHIT LIKE THIS! We must speak up, in our thousands, and we must speak up EVERY DAMN TIME! We must roar and shake the bars because every time even one of these appalling little incremental atrocities passes without uproar, then the Tiny White Men use it as a platform from which to to launch another, only slightly more atrocious attack.

Don't get tired, get mad. Talk about it. Yell about it. SCREAM about it. Deny nay-sayers sex over it. Do. Not. Be. Worn. Down. Because once the chains go on, it takes a lot of blood to get them off again.

This signal needs to be louder than all the 'stop internet limitations' signals. This Conservative Agenda includes the enslavement of better than half the human race. It really, really is more important.

Act like it.






I can't even.

How is this remotely conscionable to anyone that isn't a giant pile of hate and slime. Fucking FIRED for NOT WANTING TO CREATE LITTLE HUMANS.

This law is just on the hair side of reproductive coercion. When you take away a woman's choice to whether or not she doesn't have to get pregnant, odds are good that she is going to be impregnated against her will. Which is called reproductive coercion (or rape, depending on the situation) and such things are generally known as abuse. ABUSE okay people?


What the hell.

*rubs forehead*

Don't do this shit. Just. You and you and you and you and all of you and all of the people you know. Don't do this kind of stuff, okay? This is a bad thing. Don't do bad things. These lawmakers are trying to do a very bad thing and there is no acceptable reason behind it.



...Feminist Hulk got nothing to add to that.

DC Reboot
So far, Dc has presented some interesting ideas for its reboot. But my problem is, the event in Flashpoint that triggers it all. I won't say exactly what it is, but seriously guys, couldn't you pick a more significant event? After everything that has happened in the DC Universe ove the last few years, THAT is what you chose as the trigger for a reboot? I am seriously disappointed.

Poor planning on your part does not constitute and emergency on my part..
Tuesday night at 8 PM, a customer comes in looking for 2500 square feet of tile. But the tile he wants is on clearance. All the Home Depots in the STATE do not have enough to fill the order. And he wants it shipped to St. Louis MO by Friday afternoon.

I talk him into another tile. Send the order to the Bid Room to get another price. I'm off Wednesday so I leave notes int he system for various people to follow up, including our Operations Assisstant Store Manager.

When I come in Thursday, we've got a good price. Everything is set witht eh vendor to drop ship it from their warehouse in Texas to the jobsite. All we need is for the order to be paid for. At 230 PM, I'm scrambling to get this all finalized. I have to call the guy who's got the corporate credit card. He hasn't even seen the tile. He goes to the HD website, see's the tile and approves the payment. Everything is set ot go by 3 PM. Everyone's happy. Big order. Lots of money for store. Everyone looks good.

FIFTEEN MINUTES LATER, the guy with the credit card calls me. HIS boss cancels the order. I call the vendor to stop the shipment. I let management know the order is canceled. I think about hunting this guy down and slowly torturing him. At this point, we tell them that there is no way we can get that much tile delivered in that short a time. No one can. Unless they have a warehouse full of tile next door to the jobsite.

From the address, we figure this was an office complex that wanted to get the tile installed over a weekend when it wouldn't disrupt operations. I'm thinking, "Well, Hell, then why didn't you start looking for tile weeks ago so you could have everything arranged before hand and wouldn't have to scramble, and have us scramble, to get things done."

And what gets me is that just about anyone else would have added charges to the order for the inconvenience of the rush. The vendor added charges for the rush delivery, but we did NOT pass those on to the customer.

Just about any other tile place would have.

Words of Wisdom
* I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

* Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

* The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.

* Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright ... until you hear them speak.

* If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

* We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.

* Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

* Evening news is where they begin with 'Good Evening,' and then proceed to tell you why it isn't.

* To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.

* A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station.

* I thought I wanted a career. Turns out I just wanted paychecks.

* Whenever I fill out an application, in the part that says, 'In case of emergency, notify: I put 'DOCTOR.'

* I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

* Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

* You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

* There's a fine line between cuddling and holding someone down so they can't get away.

* I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

* You're never too old to learn something stupid.

* To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

* Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

* Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

* Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

* A diplomat is someone who tells you to go to hell in such a way that you look forward to the trip.

* Hospitality is making your guests feel at home even when you wish they were.

* When tempted to fight fire with fire, remember that the Fire Department usually uses water

Stupid Customers
I got out of work @ 830 PM yesterday. Well before the storm hit but I could tell it was on its way. I see a couple of kids playing with a wheelbarrow in the parking lot. It turns out it was the wife of a cusdtoemr and her two boys (8 & 4 I'm guessing) waiting for her husband to return from taking the first half of their load home.

I stayed with them until he returned. But I was thinking NOTHING was THAT important to get home.

Car Trouble
Woke up today ready to run errands since I had nowhere to be (no auction today) and, lo and behold, dead battery. Called Dad. Got it jumped. Got it to the service station. They popped the hood. The connectiong betweent he air box and the engine was damaged. When they put the new tire on (after the Blizzard of '11), it was the wrong one. They lifted the car and discovered that the cradle was damaged. And the tire had been rubbing on the car because of that. The air box was probably damaged by hitting the island during the blizzard.

So I have no car at the moment. But, insurance and/or the store should cover the repairs.

My Bad
I take full responsibility for the Snowpocalypse. I've been hoping for a city-paralyzing snow. I guess I just don't know my own powers.

Armageddon Unlimited

I'll believe when I see it at Games Plus.

And why does a games called Heroes Unlimited keep introducing new powers with each supplement. It was supposed to be complete with the first book.

Oh My Gods!!!!!!!
I picked up some more Heroscape terrain at the Games Plus Auction. I like it. It's perfect for running any Hero game because it's hexes and it interlocks. And the hexes are the right size for Heroclix bases.

I now have 3885 hexes worth.

Rough Ground

I have to come up with something that uses it all. 8-)
