I just finished filling out my 114 question Quality of Life Survey. Took longer than I'd expected, but then it always does. Unfortunately, I find this survey to be rather lacking in several areas. I really do wish we could write in and add a few more pointed questions. The survey seems to mainly focus on drug and alochol use on campus with other random questions about a few other subjects. I'd like to see a larger portion devoted to questions about safer sex practices on campus. Really, there were a disappointing few questions having to do with that on the survey. And as such (and based on my recent frustration with people in general), I would like to add my own questions to the end...

115.) Do you know what "safer-sex" is and engage in it when you engage in sexual activities?
a) Yes, I always use "safer-sex" methods such as condoms, dental dams, latex gloves, and regular STD testing.
b) I understand what "safer-sex" is, and I use these methods a majority of the time.
c) I understand what "safer-sex" is, but I am a moron, and thus choose to blatently ignore safety.
d) "Safer-sex"...what's that?
e) Oh yes, I always engage in "safer-sex"...I (he) always pulls out!

116.) How often are you and your partner(s) screened for STDs?
a) At least every 6 months.
b) Once a year.
c) Never, we don't have STDs because we were both (all) virgins.
d) Never, I know him/her really well and there's no possible way they could have an STD.

117.) Pop Quiz: Condoms for oral sex...yes, or no?
a) Yes, always. I trust my partner(s), but I'm not taking risks with my health or theirs!
b) No, of course not! That would be rude to my partner(s), and I'd much rather get an STD than risk being rude to my partner(s)!
c) Condom? What's a condom?

118.) Do you and your partner(s) have plans for what to do in the case of an STD or unplanned pregnancy?
a) Yes.
b) No.

119.) True or False: If my partner(s) perform a sexual act on/for me, I own it to them to return the favor.
a) True.
b) False.

120.) How much of your day is taken up by worrying about whether or not you should shave your genital region and whether or not your partner(s) will still want you if you choose not to?
a) None at all. Hair removal is my preference, and I don't care whether they like it or not!
b) 1 hour or less.
c) 1 - 6 hours.
d) 6 - 12 hours.
e) More than 12 hours. Oh I've got to shave it...they'll never want me otherwise...oh, but it'll itch...but all men (women) like it shaved...all this hair just isn't NATURAL...but shaving will increase my STD risk...but if I don't, I may never have sex again....

121.) Pop Quiz: Am I pregnant?
a) Yes, you most definately are.
b) No, of course not, there's no possible way you could be pregnant.
c) Well, list your symptoms for me, and I'll look into my crystal ball and tell you.
d) Call Miss Cleo, she'll know.
e) I have no idea...I'm not psychic, and you can't diagnose pregnancy based on symptoms. Take a test if you're worried, for the love of God!

122.) So back to this "safer-sex" thing, now that you've had time to think about it: Cool or not?
a) Definately cool!
b) Hell no, not cool at all!

123.) If you answered 'b' to the last question...WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?!?

Thank you for taking the survey!

I think it's finally happened. Condoms have become tired of become tired of being ignored and have taken the situation into their own hands.

Where did I come up with this idea you ask? Well, I had a rather odd encounter with a condom today.

So, today began as a reletively normal day. I drug my ass out of bed after sleeping in as much as possible before my class. I took a shower, and then grabbed some breakfast on the way to class. My first class was pretty much normal, and we ended up finishing early, as usual. The professor says class is over, and we all get up to leave. I put my bag on the table and picked up my book and notebook to put into it. But something caught my eye inside my bag. I frowned slightly, and leaned over to look a bit more closely. It appeared to be square and brown in color with writing on it. I look back up and glance around to see if anyone else is noticing anything out of the ordinary...nope, everybody else is just getting ready to leave. So I reach into my bag and touch this small, brown square...and I realize as soon as I get my hand on it that it's either a condom, or the rubber washer for a very large sink faucet. I decided the best course of action was to leave it in my bag for the moment since I was returning to my room before my next class.

After arriving back at my room, I opened my bag and retrieved this mysterious package. Yep, I was right, it was a condom (as opposed to a faucet washer). An un-opened, vanilla flavored, lubricated latex, Lifestyles condom with an expiration date of 2005! I have no idea where this came from...I suppose my boyfriend could have left it in there...except why would he do that? And this isn't the brand of vanilla condoms we used last time (now I suppose he could have just decided that we needed more than one brand of vanilla condom or something). If he didn't leave it there, then it might have been one of the girls in my group from my thermodynamics class I suppose, since we got together for group project last night. But why would she have given me a condom? Or was this in my bag before I went home? Did I carry a condom home in my backpack? I really have no idea where this condom came from...

But, I do have a theory. After extensive research, I've observed that according to many teens, condoms are unnecessary...especially flavored ones for oral sex. (I'll save that rant for another day) So I think the condoms are rebelling and taking the issue into their own hands. Perhaps it's just too difficult for people to go to the store, or to a clinic. So now the condoms are invading bags everywhere in an attempt to get themselves noticed. Except that if they've decided to start this campaign, they've chosen an unnecessary person to begin with...I already know that they must be used and am very responsible about it! But, I won't complain...I shall encourage the condom's new crusade! So go little condoms...invade the backpacks of all the youth who are sexually active!

I supposse I'll just stick this one in my box of stuff since it appears to be ok...

Alright, so I'm going to try this again. Because I believe that the few people who read my blog deserve a legitimate entry now that I've been making them so short and pointless lately.

I came into contact with a great many stupid people today. A few of these individuals were usually intelligent folks who seemed to be having brain farts today. But, for the most part, the rest of the stupid people were simply stupid. Complete and utter morons. But this extended contact with morons led to a very interesting observation on my part. The real, honest to goodness, morons all use AquaNet..and they use it in copious amounts. This has led me to formulate a new hypothesis. I believe that extensive AquaNet use promotes stupidity.

Now I know this is a radical new concept, but I'm really seeing a connection here. The ones I found to be the most incompetent seemed to have hair that must have been held up by entire cans of AquaNet and by additional supernatural means. Can one actually sell ones soul in exchange for supernaturally elevated hair? Perhaps further observation of these individuals is required. Maybe it's a combination of the AquaNet and the bleach. That could be somehow traveling through the hair follicles into the brain, couldn't it? Another theory that could require further observation.

Perhaps I need to capture one of these creatures for further scientific study. It wouldn't be that hard, i think a stick and a box with a piece of cheese under it would serve to fool these individuals. Really.
*sigh* Good Lord! I'm glad today is pretty much over. I honestly don't think I could tolerate much more.

Aww, you guys...thanks for signing the guestbook! And to the rest of you who haven't signed it yet...sign the guestbook! :) Hehe, thank you!

Oh, and also, if I haven't linked to you already, leave me a note or send me an email with your URL on it and I'll put your link on here! :) That is, if you want to be linked to my blog...which is entirely up to you.

Um, yeah...there was something else I was going to put in here...but I forget what it was...

Hey, all of you dorky people who are reading my blog and not leaving me messages....what's up with that? Really, don't you love me? LEAVE ME MESSAGES!!!

Don't you love me? *sniffle sniffle*

I am back again. After a brief absence from the net scene, I have returned. *rolls out the red carpet* Aren't you excited about that?

At any rate, there's not much interesting to tell really. I have once again begun collecting the pink lids. Now while I know this isn't terribly exciting, this does mean that I'm going to have to shop at a grocery store I intensely dislike in order to purchase the yogurt with the pink lids. I don't want to shop there, but my grocery store doesn't sell pink lidded yogurt. I do like the Yoplait® yogurt better anyway, but it irks me to have to shop at the store I hate. But I think this is an important cause, so I'm going to make my best effort to purchase the pink lidded yogurt if at all possible.

I'm hungry. Gummy mentioned waffles in one of the threads at ST, and now I'm incredibly craving a strawberry waffle...or maybe a blackberry one, I could deal with that too.

And a big "thank you" goes out to Caro for getting me started vibrator shopping again. Really, there are other things I should be doing with my time right this second, but vibrator shopping is far more fun. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to find 'female friendly' sites out there selling decent products? Am I really being too picky here?

I am very sentimental. Yes, I'll be the first to admit that sometimes I do things that other people might think are insane just because. For instance, there is 26¢ and a pack of gum sitting on my desk right now. I haven't moved it since Monday. I don't know when it will move. You see, my boyfriend left the 26¢ and the gum there when he went home, and I get this odd sort of comfort from having it right there where he had put it all weekend long. Almost like he's going to come back and pick it up or something. Now I know he isn't coming back to get it, at least not anytime soon...but that doesn't stop it from giving me that strange sense of comfort at seeing it there. So I suppose I'll probably leave it there for a while the way I have so far.

Yes, I know I'm strange, thank you!

Hmmm...do you ever check your email, and then wish you hadn't? I hate that feeling. And yet that's exactly what I just did, which makes me a not so happy girl. Apparently our midterm grades have already been turned in. Not a good thing. My calc grade is not going to be so happy. *sigh* Ah well, not much I can do about it now.

I had the most lovely three-way with Aria and Caro this afternoon. ;)

Thursday, October 11, 2001

Ooo, I am tired! Sheesh, it doesn't even seem like I've been awake that long, but I'm tired already anyway. But at least today was Thursday, and it's almost over...which makes tomorrow Friday, and we all know that Friday is going to be excellent.

So what did I do today? Well late last night after Matt went to bed, I talked to Caro, who has finally reappeared. Oh I've missed her so very much! So I talked to her for a while and then went to bed. Got up this morning almost as early as I wanted to, and managed to fill in some more chatting with Caro during the morning. I took my midterm, which went really well I think. And then went to work. Now I'm just sitting here trying to unwind enough to go to my calc help session in just a bit. I've got that test tomorrow, and I'm stressing a bit over it. My head has hurt today because I didn't take my meds last night or this afternoon so that I'd be perfectly clear for my midterm and my test tomorrow. I think I'm going to have to take some tonight though, otherwise I'm going to be in bad shape. A couple of things that I intended to get done today didn't get done...through no fault of my own though, the people I needed to see weren't there. So they will have to be done tomorrow.

I'm very excited about tomorrow...there's so much to do before then! I don't know how I can possibly sleep at all tonight, I'm hyper and busy and everything in between! :)
*dances around*

Caro is back! :)

Bought the plane tickets for Thanksgiving. I'm a little bit nervous now, lol. I wasn't nervous before I did it, but now it seems that I actually am. Very odd. I mean, I know it'll be ok...actually having done it just makes it seem a bit strange for some reason. But then again, it's also 1:41am, that could contribute.

I'm watching the news, this makes me very sad. I've avoided the news for about a week or so now. It just depressed me too much, but apparently it's unavoidable now. So there is pretty much war now. They were showing a video on CNN where Bin Laden was talking about all this. It was fairly chilling. He's tying to make this a religious war. The Americans versus the entire Muslim religion. That's not what this is about. *sigh*

Thursday, October 04, 2001

Ya know, I can feel my stress level getting lower by the minute today. My new meds don't seem to be making me quite as crazy...although I haven't really taken quite enough yet to be able to make a definate decision on that. I'm out of the class that was so bad and alot of stuff has gotten straightened out. And tomorrow is Friday...you can't argue about that. :)

Helpful Goddess Hint #7315: When attempting to drive boyfriend crazy via webcam, the use of props is encouraged. The Goddess has recently discovered that the Charms Blow Pop® is quite useful in this capacity. A report concerning the usefulness of popsicles in a similar fashion will follow at a later date.
