Yes my friends, that’s right, the time has come for me to blog our vacation! Hurrah! Happily I get to ease into it because the first day of our trip is probably the least interesting. On Saturday, June 4, we left Salt Lake bound for the Northwest. We filled the van with snacks, 2 flats
I know that fanfic has a bad name. It’s smutty, gay, and doesn’t respect canon. Often all three. But this is the best piece of fanfic, maybe ever. It’s not smutty, no more gay than any story in which Jack Harkenss plays a small part, and it’s hilarious. Read! Read! http://sam-storyteller.livejournal.com/126227.html
I happened upon this interesting column on whether or not an LDS woman should consider marrying a good man outside the temple. Well… the author puts it better than that. Check it out. http://www.mormonmomma.com/index.php/2011/wait-temple-marriage/ I offer no opinions, just food for thought.
Back in the day I had a blog feature (which sounds more organized that it was) called FridayFun. It was all about fun things to do over the weekend. Today I was looking through some photos and I realized that I had photos for just such a thing, and for a feature I wanted to

The thing I didn’t like was that religious people (maybe especailly Mormons?) tend to 1) Assume that the other
“The mystery of God’s love as I understand it is that God loves the man who was being mean to his dog just as much as he loves babies; God loves Susan Smith, who drowned her two sons, as much as he loves Desmond Tutu. And he loved her just as much when she was
This is fascinating. If you’ve got 4 minutes I highly recommend it.
Two things: Some people are being a nasty about the wedding. Can I just point out to some of the people of my acquaintance that some of you actively preach the importance and holiness of marriage? For those of you, you certainly don’t have to watch, but try appreciating that this couple, one of the
I Know I Am, But What Are You? by Samantha Bee My rating: 4 of 5 stars I listened to this, mainly because if it’s a book written by a comedian and read by that same person it’s usually going to be fun. Generally it was. There were a few stories where my attention drifted
I’m really surprised to see so many people who consider themselves Christians loving Atlas Shrugged. Ayn Rand’s whole message is that self-interest and the pursuit of money are the purpose of man’s existence. She preached atheism fervently. She taught that charity is of no value. One of the main characters proclaims proudly that his only goal
