Well, onto my life update.
A couple days ago, my mom took the electric clippers to the dogs and, now, they look funny with their short hair. They look younger, actually.
Yesterday, Mom and I took Galaxy to the vet for her appointment for the surgery on her adrenal tumor. Afterwards, we went to the mall. While there, we went to the Dollar Store and bought a few things. Afterwards, we went to the bookstore and I ended up buying three Star Trek books while I was there: Foundations by Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore, Do Comets Dream?, by S. P. Somtow, and The Nanotech War by Steven Piziks. I really want to read The Nanotech War, but I have strong urges to read the other two, as well. So, I'm putting it up to a vote.
Which book should I read after I finish The Great Hunt?
The Nanotech War
Do Comets Dream?
Today, I watched Eight-Legged Freaks. It was pretty cool. I'd give it a 7/10 rating. However, the whole time I was watching the movie, I was thinking, "You know. This would make a great first- or third-person shooter game." The game would end up being like Serious Sam, but with spiders. That sounds like a fun game to me. I'd buy it for $20 or less. Something quick and simple, yet fun.
Dr. Boyd called today and said Galaxy was fine after surgery. We can pick her up tomorrow.
I did make a plan to clean my room today, and yet, I haven't done squat to it. Maybe it's due to the fact that when I picked up my printed copies of the USS Sevilia episodes, I started reading where I left off in the second season. Somebody poke and prod me to get to work. Maybe naraht can tell me what he did to force himself to clean up.
Also, on the news, there was more stuff about homosexual marriage. My stance on this is well-known, and I don't want to get into the debate about it here. However, what I will say here is that there are idiots on both sides of the fence. The ACLU is taking this issue to liberal courts and liberal judges, instead of the state legislature. While I don't abhor the ACLU, I'm pretty much against it, and this just makes them look stupid. I mean, it doesn't help your case if you're taking your issue to the wrong place. Courts cannot make law. Only the legislature can. However, one of the law-makers on my side of the issue was quoted as saying, "Homosexual marriage will create families that are motherless and fatherless." Now, this statement is stupid and ludicrous. I mean, say a lesbian couple adopts a kid. While the kid will be fatherless, it will certainly not be motherless. Homosexual marriage creates families that are either motherless OR fatherless.
Well, I just bought another year of LiveJournal to get the two month extension. I've now got a paid account until July of 2006, which is pretty cool.
And, finally, I'm getting sick and tired of this keyboard holder falling off.
