9:57 pm - A thought on California's Proposition 8...

It's been about five months since my last LJ post, and this one's kinda long. It's also got some legal stuff, so be warned!

Summary: By invalidating the valid marriages of a specific group of individuals, Proposition 8 violates the U.S. ConstitutionCollapse )

Therefore, even without bringing up "due process", "discrimination", "equal protection", etc., it can still be shown that California's Proposition 8 is invalid under the United States Constitution.

4:10 pm - Yoinked from evansmj...

"You know how sometimes people on your friend's list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when are they working there? Since when are they dating him/her?" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you *should* already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

"Please copy mine below, erase my answers, putting yours in their place, then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration! One-word answers seldom help anyone out."

I, along with several of my co-workers, have been let go due to financial difficulties with the company.

Time to update the résumé. Maybe I should do that before I leave the office...

2:01 pm - 63 Q's

Yoinked from od0_ital, it's "63 Questions"! (Though I've removed three questions which assume this is being sent via E-mail, which aren't really applicable to LiveJournal, so it's actually 60 now.)

They're all in here.Collapse )

7:14 pm - Finish the sentences...
Yoinked from Chuck on MySpace...

1. I've come to realize that my last kiss was...
...to a cat.

2. I am listening to...
...the whir of my computer's fan, plus Kyle XY.

3. I talk...
...as little as possible.

4. I am dating...
...no, actually I'm not. Haven't been for almost a year.

5. My best friend(s)...
...are far away.

6. My car is...
...actually clean(ish).

7. I hate it when people ask...
...no, actually I don't. I enjoy answering questions at Askville.

8. Love is...
...a many-splendored thing. However, this definition is less than useful, because "splendored" apparently isn't a word. (m-w.com lists "splendor" as a noun, not a verb.)

9. Marriage is...
...a big decision.

10. Somewhere, someone is thinking...
..."Does this shirt go with these suspenders?"

11. I'm always...
...thinking about things.

12. I have a secret crush...
...but I'll let you in on it. It's strawberry, and it's in a case next to the refrigerator.

13. My mobile phone...
...is blue.

14. When I wake up in the morning...
...I turn my alarm clock off.

15. Before I go to bed at night...
...I put on my mask.

16. Right now I am thinking about...

17. Babies are...

18. I get on LiveJournal...
...to see what's up with my friends.

19. Today I...
...went to the bank.

20. Tonight I will...
...go to bed.

21. Tomorrow I will...
...pay some bills.

22. I really want...
...to finish this post.

1:54 pm - Heroes spinoff announced

In addition to a second season, we're also going to get a spin-off, Heroes: Origins. The two series will total 30 episodes next season, though it has not been announced how those 30 will be split between the two series. (A report from an NBC insider said Heroes will get a regular 22-episode season, and that there will be 8 Origins episodes, but that hasn't been confirmed yet.)

Read the original press release from NBC, or The Futon Critic's copy.

The key passage:

NBC "bulks up" with 30 combined episodes of Heroes and Heroes: Origins, an innovative new spin-off that each week will introduce a new character—one of whom will be chosen by viewers through the Heroes website on NBC.com to become a cast regular the following season.
