Holy Week, Batman!

Filed under: The Occasional Godliness — Katrina @ 10:18 pm

It’s that time of year again! It’s the week of the first full moon of the spring, yet it’s a somber week of reflection on, well, just how nasty humans can be. But we try to better ourselves, and prove it by giving things up for Lent, I guess. A meatless Good Friday ensues, followed by a cautious Saturday, and a joyous Easter Sunday as the day of bunnies and eggs and Zombie Jesus.

A Tale of Two Newarks

Filed under: Going Places,NYRA Happenings,Personal — Katrina @ 8:02 pm

Yesterday around 10am I got into my car and headed out. Got gas at the nearby station, stopped by the Starbucks near it and got me a blueberry muffin and a venti white mocha (I flipped off the Dunkin Donuts in the same shopping center while walking back to my car with it). Realized I needed cash, so drove a bit to my credit union. Finally, around 10:45am, got on the damn road!

Good ride up I-95. Got to around Baltimore, following my Google Maps directions. At first thought I was going the wrong way since I’ve been by Baltimore zillions of times but the road seemed different. Well, I was still on course anyway, just got caught in a small backup. Went under Fort McHenry tunnel and paid a toll. Five dollars! Grrr.

Pesky Age of Consent Issue

Filed under: Youth Rights — Katrina @ 12:36 am

It’s an issue NYRA doesn’t touch with a ten foot pole, and rightly so. Yet we get morons on the NYRA forums feeling the need to discuss the age of sexual consent once in a while, as if it’s some major youth rights issue alongside the voting age. Some get rather annoyed that we don’t take it on, feeling like we’re being hypocritical. They feel we’re ignoring an unjust rule that harms youth under the guise of protecting them, and that no youth rights supporter could possibly support it.

Well, that’s just not true.
