i'd have one long stair going up and another even longer coming down

Wow, I overslept like an oversleeping thing today (Got up about two and a half hours after I usually do.) I should really weigh myself, package up these subs that need to go out (how I hate mailing subs), and then eat something with protein and fat in it before I go to the gym.

Then I can come home, shower, and watch Farscape until it's time to go have pizza with arcaedia.

I wonder if the post-novel ennui was late this year....

In lieu of content, katallen on how one sort of privilege can trump another. And coffeeandink on racism: you do not have the right to hail a cab.

How much you wanna bet that guy in Kat's story went home and told his wife, "That bitch, the police only listened to her because she knows somebody?"

And felt like it was unfair?

Is that you, or the PC, doing the humming? :-)

Also, your cries of "WIKTORY" have memed their way into my at-work lexicon.
Me. *g*

The computer was playing Leonard Cohen songs.
Reading these makes me think of the many philosphers throughout time (Buddha, Tao, etc) who've talked about how we love to look at the differences amongst us in order to promote ourselves and subordinate others -- when the true goal in actual living, perhaps, is to seek out the similarities and let the differences add variety and learning. Maybe someday I'll be better at this too -- many times it's too easy to recognize various differences to make myself feel better (though simply because of my circumstances, race would not make me feel any better -- after all, things like how we're born and raised have nothing to do with who we truly are; I've never really understood that viewpoint of race making us 'different', but my SIL, who's Korean, reminds me often that it's because I'm a white female. I've never had to deal with that kind of racial prejudice -- she, on the other hand, has).
