A friend posted something on his Facebook about raising the tax on cigarettes to $100 per pack. When I argued that this amounted to basically, a tax on a life choice you don't agree with, he responded with this. (Emphasis mine)

----

It's not a personal choice when it affects other people. I walk through plenty of smoke every day to get to my classes because people want to kick the crap out of their own lungs, why should i suffer because of their choices? [...]

It is also not wrong to have laws to prevent individuals from doing certain things to their bodies.[...] it is illegal to shoot up heroin even though there is no chance of second hand shooting up.

So yes it is wrong for me to have to breath that crap because some people want to kick the crap out of their own lungs. [...] Besides the point of the tax is that people who are addicted can stay addicted. Addicts will no doubt pay the surcharge, that's why it is called addiction, they have lost their personal choice. [...]

------

This is not a post to debate the tax on cigarettes. Or even smoking itself. The point is he is a self-identified liberal democrat and I have no idea how he can think an argument such as this is okay. Short of spamming him with bitch plz gifs, I have no idea how to respond to this. Any ideas would be appreciated

Okay, sorry in advance to brynn__ for the ending. I rewrote it twice and it kept ending like this so idk what that's about. I should be sleeping or writing something useful probably but instead I spent fifteen minutes rewriting this. So, here you go. A sequel to the first JewBrynn fic. It can be found here. This one is also not beta'd for grammar errors and is probably not of the Lord (at least the end).

****

The walk down the hallway toward his room was silent but not uncomfortable. Brian was really glad she was staying on his floor. It made all the questions easier to answer. True, everyone knew the real story, but it was nice to be subtle for a change.

He lounged against the door to his room and glanced at her covertly. "I appreciate your company. It gets lonely sometimes when on tour. Away from home. Away from my dog."

She lowered her lashes coyly over her brown eyes. His gut tightened and he made a quick decision. "You will come inside with me? I would enjoy your company for a bit longer."

Her grin was quick as lightening and gone just as quickly. It was unsettling in the best way. "I will take that as a yes."

She looked up and their eyes met. He leaned forward, looking forward to finding out if she still tasted like the strawberry lip balm she had applied on the bus. Their mouths were close, separated by only millimeters, when the door to Brian's room swung inward and he toppled backwards to land in an ungraceful heap on the floor.

"Brian! I thought you would never arrive!" The dark haired man bent over of help him up and only succeeded in knocking their heads together.

"Oof. Stop trying to help me. What are you doing here?"

"Surprising you?" He gave a curious glance towards Theresa. Brian followed his gaze and met her eyes with an apologetic shrug as he finally was able to get to his feet. "I am sorry. But it appears I am busy tonight."

"Brian. You have plans? What are they? Can I come too?"

"Yes Patrick, I have plans. Apparently my last lesson in manners did not take. So I will have to show you again."

As the door swung shut in her face she could hear rapid fire French followed by a low moan. She might be going back to her room alone, but the evening wasn't a total loss. Her friends were never going to believe this.

THE END.

OMG WTF PCHAN. WHY WON'T HE LEAVE MY BRAIN? IDEK. SORRY. I APPARENTLY SHIP IT NOW AS WELL.

I am going to be making a post with general figure skating info. This post and my next few are so I can have the detail I want for these skaters without the actual fs post being too unwieldy. I will link all of these sub posts to the larger figure skating post when I get everything finished.

This is all introductory of course.

Today I will be talking about Johnny Weir. A brief pictorial about his awesome and a few of my favorite routines are under the cut.

diva bitch whore from hellCollapse )

ETA: A NEW VID

THIS IS THE DEBUT OF HIS NEW EXHIBITION ROUTINE. IT MIGHT BE MY FAVOURITE THING HE'S EVER DONE. OR AT LEAST CLOSE TO IT. WATCH AND BE AMAZED.

Um, yeah I don't even know what this is. JFC the things I do for brynn__. Sorry in advance.

This is short, weird, unbeta-ed, OOC and weird at the end cause my brain kept wanting to add P-Chan in there so IDEK what that's about.

Anyway, here you go.

Jewbear/brynn__.

Brian was tired. The show had run long and all he wanted was to get on the bus and close his eyes for the foreseeable future. Usually, those moods made him dread these after show autograph sessions, but this one had potential. The brunette in front of him was beautiful and also very interested if the way she kept gazing at his thighs was any indication.

Now that he thought more about it, the bus just meant more Stéphane bossing Max around or cooing long distance at Johnny. This was infinitely more enjoyable. He was glad they would be here for a few days. He wondered if she spoke French. "What is your name?"

"Theresa."

"Theresa, would you like for me to sign something?" Was that a smirk? He was definitely intrigued. "Or was there something else you were hoping for?"

The raised eyebrow he got as a response only made him grin. "Tell me do you need a ride back to the hotel?" As her took her arm and led her to the bus he thought that maybe leaving home once in a while did have it's advantages.

My back is getting worse and I am on so many pain pills, I don't know if I will be able to type more than a few sentences. It has been so so cold here and it is making everything worse. I have a handicapped placard now and a cane and it's going to be a flamingo soon and that will be cool.

Laura moved all my compy stuff out to the living room so I can lie in bed and still be on line.

I have to find a brain searing fanfic for the competition we have. She is winning and I can't let that stand. I hope tomorrow I can upload some new icons since I've gotten a fuckton of them.

I think I might delete all of them and just start over.

Too drugged up to be coherent. If Moozie is reading this I just want o say that I miss Dani so so much. More everyday. I haven't been calling you and I apologize for that. It is selfishness on my part. When I talk to you, I can't pretend that everything is still okay. I know that doesn't make up for anything, but I wanted you to know what was going on.

I should be going to Florida soon for rehab for my back.

I am seriously hungry.

I am dismayed at how long I have been out of commission. I think it's starting to get to me.

Okay, I love you guys.

XOXOXO

I have been thinking about this end of a decade thing. While I can't deny my joy at seeing the end of this decade, I want to acknowledge this milestone differently than I have done in years past.

A lot of bad shit happened. But, you know what, I'm glad it did. Because it has formed me into the person I am today (who I happened to think is pretty bad ass), because it has taught me to handle adversity with grace and acceptance and it has taught me that with perseverance anything can be overcome.

While it is true I am starting this new decade in a pretty bad spot, if I have learned anything from this past decade it is that this to shall pass. And while it is also true that the last ten years have been full of death and illness and sorrow, there has also been life and joy and happiness and to deny the former would negate the latter.

So, here it is. My new years manifesto. What is meant to happen shall happen. The bad should be accepted as it is only there to help me to greater appreciate the good. And at the end of the day remember that All Things Must Pass.

Sunrise doesn't last all morning
A cloudburst doesn't last all day


So thank you to all the great friends I've made this decade, though not all of you are still around. Thanks to all the great times you've allowed me to be a part of, the joy and celebration as well as the sorrow and the loss. And, in the not to distant future, when everything is gray and you feel that no one could understand what you are going through, please just think of me and know that someone cares about you. And if that doesn't help, remember that there will always be this:



love, joy and rainbow sprinkles,

okay, so I have recently had a lot of time on my hands and in order to fill it with something productive (rather than watch netflix and eat ramen all day) I started baking again. last week, i planned to make pumpkin pie, but the store bought crust I had was no good. so, i looked up pie crust online to see how difficult it would be and found a recipe I thought looked good. you can find it here: http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/perfect_pie_crust/ I used the all butter variation.

last night, I mixed up the dough and let it chill in the fridge over night. this morning I made pie and photo-documented it as it was my first attempt. (please excuse the poor photo quality as I am working with camera phone pics)



This is what I pulled out of the fridge this morning and let me tell you it was hard as a ROCK! I had to let it sit out almost an hour before I was able to move it at all.



So, after I started working with it, I realized it was much too dry and had to remix some stuff to get it to stay together. I probably should have re-chilled it at that point but instead I just rolled it out.



This took me like half an hour and my hands, arms and back are still upset about it. However, pie is always worth it. And if you look carefully at the top right corner you can see my awesome new rolling pin. It needs a name. It is (shamefully) a Paula Deen branded roller so it has PD stamped on the ends. Because of this I am considering Patty Duke. Ideas would be appreciated.

Anyway so I think I rolled it out too thin because I was worried it wouldn't fit into the pie pan. However, as you can see by the excess here, my worries were for naught.



Next came trimming and I have to say that I think I trimmed a little too short but, you know, rookie mistake, will make sure I have more edge to work with in future. It turned out like so.



Not bad, if I do say so myself. Next I mixed up the pie filling. It is my mom's pumpkin pie recipe that I modified (as most of my recipes are) to make more spicy. It's pretty delish usually. So, I whipped that up real quick and filled up the crust.



This is where I started to freak out slightly. It was a little overfull and I had poured it into the shell on the table. So I had to get it to the oven, get the oven open, and get the pie into the oven without spilling any. It was touch and go for a while. But I managed to pull it off (mostly, through sheer willpower and awesome).

I had to wait for a while and then it was time to tent the edges to keep the crust from burning.



This is sometimes known by it alternate name "the reason burn salve was invented" In related news, I apparently have baby skin, so this supposedly quick process took almost fifteen minutes. Boo. Then I cleaned the kitchen, treated my burns and waited...



Finally, it was ready!! Behold...



Looks good! But...how is the crust?



Looks super flaky to me. Looking forward to eating it as soon as it cools. Visitors to help me not eat the whole thing myself are welcome.

Overall, how would I rate the whole experience?



A++ Would crust again. (please excuse my chipped polish. My nails did not realize they would be making a cameo.)

okay that's all for now. I will make sure to keep you updated with more culinary adventures. if i remember.

xoxo

ETA: JUST ATE SOME AND OMG! OMG! OMG! THIS IS BEST EVS!! Seriously, I am gloating so hard right now, it's a good thing there is no one around to witness it. So, yay me, etc.

so why is it when you say something like 'hey, i'm on this medication so it's not going to happen for me tonight' they always take it so personally.

i had pancakes tonight and they were worth the wait.

staff retreat was amazing and made me realize a few things that i need to change in my life. however, now that i am back living it, i am having trouble sticking to it.

other things i have trouble sticking to? my budget and my schedule.

jesus christ, i need a keeper.
