End of November...novel is not done.

Ok. So there is the big news about the Pope's opinion on gay priests.
I have a question about priests. Aren't they supposed to be celibate?
So wouldn't that make them neither gay or straight? I'm just curious. So if you are a priest or a nun, you remain celibate and are therefore "married to the church" so you shouldn't have ANY sexual urges of any kind.
I'm just asking...anyone have an answer? If you respond and say that it's impossible for humans to have NO urges, I disagree. There are many people out there who have no interest in it. And if you think that it's impossible to ask that of someone, then I agree maybe the Roman Catholic church should change it's rules about priest and marriage.
I think that they should encourage family and faith. Like some of those other religions out there.

They say you shouldn't talk about politics and religion in polite company. But I think that makes things more interesting. And check it out, I'm updating my blog for those who wanted an update. At least it gave me a topic to discuss. :)

I do apologize for not updating.
I blame the following three things:
1. New boyfriend. I tell him all the interesting things in my head. And he talks back. Which is way more interesting than a blog.
2. I'm tring to write a book. I was supposed to have 50,000 words by the end of the month. I'm not even close.
3. I'm trying to get through my pile of reading. I'm actually reading 2-3 books at a time on an effort to get through all of it. :)

Ok...I'll write some more later.

Ok, it's now later. Not that you can tell by my post.

So remember my post about Oprah for President?
Apparently there is a fan club out there that would like her to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

Crazy huh? Go sign the petition. :)

Remember in my same post I think I might have told of my support for Hillary Clinton if she were to run for president as well. Well, someone I know who I thought was a fan of the Clinton's is against Hillary for President because she "lies and hides her lifestyle". Apparently this person thinks that Hillary is a lesbian, and shouldn't be condemned because she is a lesbian, but should be condemned because she is married and "hides" her true life. I disagree. Who cares if she is or if she isn't? We have way more problems in this world to solve.
Like over 2000 American soldiers dead in Iraq. And homeless and hungry people on our VERY OWN SMALL TOWN STREETS. And how about all of the kids with no parents?

Besides, it's none of my business or your business what someone does when the bedroom door is shut. (which in my opinion is where all of that "gay" and "lesbian" stuff actually happens right?)

I mean, so we are okay with someone in office who is straight, but "hides" his true life by not admitting he has to have his toes licked or he isn't attracted to his wife. Who cares? I don't. Anyway, I had to ask this person "who said Hilary is a lesbian?" and the person replied that they had insider information. I told this person that if they had insider information, then someone else must have it as well, which would mean it would have been leaked all over to the National Enquirer by now....

Besides that I have one other point. I don't blame anyone for keeping any of their private sexual attractions a secret (yes people, it should be private, I don't know why if you are gay or lesbian your life is all of a sudden someone else's business) It's no one's business.
And why would I not blame someone for keeping it a secret if they were gay or a lesbian? Because the rest of us make it so hard for them to live a normal, not persecuted, no feelings hurt, normal life. If I were a lesbian, I might be too afraid to discuss it or be open. I might be in the closet. Married to a man. Having his children, and all way too afraid to be me.
Simply because we can't accept people for who they are.
Sometimes this world stinks. But then I stop and remember, it's only the people that stink. :)

So...enjoying my blog updates yet? haha...I know I have a few lurkers who are happy I finally updated.

But who are you? Do I know all of you?

I should post a picture.... I'm going to post pictures of internet lurkers.

For now you can have this one his name is Mickey. I'm pretty sure he isn't an internet lurker. But he is definitely the best dog ever. He unfortunately passed away a while back.

November Rain's here already, can you believe it? Today is a typical Worcester November. It's rainy and it's cold and people have started to get crabby.

They definitely need to listen to some good music, sit under a mood lamp thingy and relax.

So I haven't updated in a while. I'm moved into my new place. I am living with two people, Cate and Ray. Ray has a cat named Eilan. I think that's how it's spelled. Eilan's name is Celtic for "Independence". Cool name I thought. I'm still living in Worcester, I just moved to the other side of town. The bedroom is a little bigger than my old one, but I had to move everything I owned. Which I found out is a lot. I went from an entire apartment to one bedroom.
Not all of my stuff fits. :(
Ray and Cate already have everything, so they didn't need any of my stuff.
I'm subletting here because their old roommate moved to Boston, so I took his place. The rent is cheap and I'm only stuck until May. So in May I might move again. Or I might renew a lease at this apartment. Or maybe I will try to buy a place again.

So what else is new? Work is the same. I'm not doing any theatre stuff right now.
I am sponsering my friend Cate to get inducted into Alpha Psi Omega. That is the Drama Honor Fraternity at WPI. It's a little bit of a big deal to get inducted. I never sponsered anyone in before, so this is a bit fun for me too. Cate was extremely excited to get in.
My friend TC also got in. He was excited as well. I think that both people will be great additions to AYO.

What else is new? I have a boyfriend. His name is Anthony. We have been dating for about a month and half....and so far so good. :) He's a real sweetheart. A real nice guy. So few of those left. He's very smart, ambitious and a hard worker. And he says all the right things and also does all the right things. Actions speak way louder than words.
He's younger than me, so I'm robbing the cradle, but younger guys are cuter. :)
And for those family members who want to know, he is Italian. With a little French, but his family doesn't talk about the French. :)

Want to know anything else? Let me know.

A few people have asked me about my "secret" from a previous post. I'm sorry I can't write about it still. But if it's just killing you to know, send me a private email and I promise to write back and tell you what it was.

What else? Oh yeah, I'm not writing as much as I could be on my blog because I am trying to write a novel. This month is National Write a Novel Month. There is a website for it and everything. So I signed up. Our goal is 50, 000 words by the end of the month. I'm not even close. I only have 3000 words. And I have skipped writing a few days. And have I mentioned that I don't have a plot? And my character isn't named yet. But at least I am writing. I'm getting it all out.

I was also thinking about writing a political piece about why our generation doesn't seem to care that our friends are getting killed in Iraq. I don't care if you support the war or not. But it seems our media is covering the wrong stories. That our generation is talking about the wrong things and discussing the wrong news. I might write about it.
Ummm...that's it for now.
I'll try to update better. But it might be hard while I'm writing the book this month.
