Apparently that moment when your boss asks you to do something and you hand it to them already done?  Is a Radar moment.  (As in, from M*A*S*H.)  So says my mother.

Tania's doing a love-in.  (I'm here.)  She made me all glowy.

She ended another post saying, "I'd love to hear how other people had careers shaped by fate. Where have you ended up? Is it where you thought you'd go in life?"  While I can look back and see how who and where I am is consistent with who and where I was, definitely some parts of my current life were unexpected, but I think I never had strong visions of where I planned to end up, which makes it much easier to just roll with developments.

I'm not going to the anti-Prop.8 rally in Boston on Saturday [jointheimpact.com].  Rallies aren't really my thing, and protesting the results of majority votes feels weird to me (yes, I know, voting on the rights of a minority is problematic).  I was trying to articulate to Sean tonight (he and I were the only ones at small group, so we opted to just continue our dinner conversation) and what basically came out was that it felt to me like people were protesting the people who had voted the way they didn't like, and in trying to articulate this I realized better that no, really what they're protesting is the heteronormative paradigmatic structure and whatever ... so yay for that better understanding.  And we had lots of good conversation about a variety of topics, so yay for that generally.

I've been lax (especially considering I'm on the committee!) in publicizing Jules' project lovewideopen.
We know it can be difficult when a family member, especially a son or a daughter, comes out. A lot of what society has to say about the GLBT community is unflattering and sometimes downright hostile. It's also usually untrue, and thousands of people are suffering because of the misinformation that feeds anti-gay attitudes.

You now have the chance to contribute to an artistic collaboration that hopes to help people, especially parents, realize that being gay isn't the end of the world for their loved one. In fact, with their help, it can be just another healthy part of what makes that person unique and beautiful. Love, Wide Open is a not-for-profit artistic anthology that seeks to help the parents of GLBT teens cope with their child coming out to them. All proceeds will be directed to PFLAG (http://www.pflag.org) to help them continue the work they are already doing in this field.
And via friendsfriends somewhere: comics_come_out -- "a web-comic anthology discussing LGBT issues, reactions to Prop 8, personal stories, basically what this means to all of us. I want to find a way to turn a negative into something positive and active and working towards change."

Some people have commented on how accurate their ColorGenics result was, so I checked it out.

How the eff do I pick which color I "feel most in harmony with"?  Especially 8 in descending order.  I admit I didn't think too long and hard in the picking, but isn't the partly the point?  That you intuit it rather than overthinking?

I didn't find it terribly accurate, and then did it again just now (the first time was this afternoon at work) and still wasn't impressed.

At this particular time you are feeling the results of extreme stress and you are seeking a 'way out' but you are pushing too hard. Obviously you need peace, tranquillity and contentment. Your temperament is such that you are hoping, unrealistically perhaps, that your desires will shortly be fulfilled (even if at this time you are not quite sure what those true aspirations may be!).

You don't really give in. You follow your beliefs and ideals to the bitter end. You are the personification of stubbornness and whatever may transpire, right or wrong, you refuse to compromise or make concessions.

The situation at this time is one of considerable distress. You feel trapped and you are looking for some way out. You can find solace in the arms of someone who cares so long as there is no long-term emotional involvement.

Recent disappointment has led you to become truly introverted. You are becoming suspicious of everybody and consequently you now feel that you are unable to trust anybody. Unfortunately it would appear that you are curbing your natural enthusiasm and imaginative nature - perhaps this is because you are fearful that you may become over enthused and find that you could possibly be carried away by wishful thinking. You are keeping your distance to see whether attitudes towards you are sincere - but this watchfulness could easily develop into suspicion and distrust.

You are inclined to be too trusting and you feel that you need to be on your guard against the possibility that your endeavours and actions may be misunderstood. Too often you have been taken advantage of and you have been mentally abused. Now you are seeking a relationship which can provide peace of mind, where you can be yourself and not have the need to put on a false front

At this time you are really feeling quite exhausted by all the conflict and quarrelling that is going on about you and you are looking for some sort of protection from this state of affairs. Ideally you are seeking a peaceful condition and a tranquil environment in which you can be afforded the chance to relax and recover.

You want what you want and you need all that you want and, as they say in the movies, you are the sort of individual that 'By hook or by crook' you will, by fair means or foul, endeavour to get what you are looking for.

In the past your trusting attitude has often been misunderstood and so you have needed to protect yourself against your tendency to be abused and taken advantage of. As a consequence you possibly adopt an aloof and critical attitude and you are only willing to let your guard down once sincerity and trustworthiness can be assured.
