“Hey guys. It's me. I've got some updates to do, and I haven't gotten around to do 'em yet, but uh... don't worry. They're coming. What I've been doing for the past two weeks. Um...
I was expecting to go to the little... uh, the uh... David Jeremiah thing tonight, but apparently it's not tonight. It's tomorrow night, and I've got school, so we're not going. Um... Oh well. It would've been fun.
And... with all probability, either Friday or Saturday, depending on what it, um... what it looks like, um... I'm going to be going to Hunt Valley, and going to my first Star Trek convention! And while there, I'm going to meet uh... one of my LiveJournal friends, who I can't pronounce her LiveJournal name. Something like [syredronning] or whatever... Um... AcidQueen knows who she is. *laughs* That's... She knows who she is. *laughs* That's what she goes by. Um... I th... I think that'd be interesting. Um...
However, I came across something at work today that really, really annoyed me. I was telling... telling um... some of my coworkers, um... especially Darryl, about going to the convention and... meeting... uh, meeting my friend. And I told her [should be "him"] what she... she liked, and she... and he told me that uh... that, if I did go up and meet her, and that because she writes slash fan-fiction, that I would come back on Monday, and I would be... I would... I would become gay, and I'd start hitting on 'em all, and everything, and it was... and I'm sitting there like "What?!"
And it's... I'm like... and I'm trying to say that... And I just called it what it was: prejudice. Which, I mean, it's completely stupid. And he's like, "Oh, no. It's not prejudice. I just think that it'd be a bad influence." I'm sitting there like "Screw this!" I mean, it's like, really... "Oh no! The slash is going to kill me or something! OMG! OMG! OMG!" It's like stupid! I mean, the people here, they're just... I don't know. I don't know what's wrong with them. I don't know what's wrong with me for... for working here. But, anyway, I guess I'll talk to you guys later. Bye.”
