Look, I know there are still anti-sodomy laws on the books in my country. Attempts to de-criminalise homosexuality have usually smashed up against an overwhelming underwhelmed majority who wonder what the fuss is about and if asked, would probably tell you that they don't know any gay people at all so they're really more concerned with jobs and the economy, thanks. There is a small group who are trying to change things, and there's another small group that says homosexuality shouldn't be de-criminalised. Y'know, my beef is not really with group B, even though I think they are wrong. My beef is that when a person from group B writes an article saying that the laws shouldn't be changed because homosexuality is bad for the community*, it pisses me off when you say things like:

Reason #99 for hating the imaginary paper's lack of archival presence on the web: Wikipedia cannot quote you. ETA: Neither can CJR.

Nor can posts - blog posts like this one and other internet witterings. Which sort of pisses me off because I would like to talk about stuff from the imaginary paper but I can't because it'd be unsubstantiated.

O well. this bit's about the book reviews )

Wandered by the secondhand bookstore today and nearly picked up a copy of The Shipping News. (It was just $1!) Thankfully didn't, as I've already got a copy I'd forgotten about. I suck at remembering whether I already own a book, or had simply borrowed it too often from the library. This is the reason I have four copies of Gawain and the Green Knight. Still, this would not be a problem if I actually have shelfspace. *mourns* Neil Gaiman, who the imaginery paper says will be in town soon, has an awesome library. (Try fitting that in a flat.)

I'd bookblog, but I've been reading non-book stuff lately. Also, this was about the time my Yubina yarn arrived (with lots of cool stamps on the package!), so I've been spending time on Ravelry trying to find a pattern I really like. I'd make this Butterfly dress, except I don't think I bought enough yarn. And that despite how lovely it looks (ignore the ugly pink underdress), I'd feel weird wearing something like that.
