.... I miss having a cat. I mean I adore my parents' cat, but she's not mine you know? I can't help but looking at the pages of the shelters online, cooing over their cats and kittens. But I can do nothing until I get my own place again, and even then it has to be a place that allows me to keep a cat. Sigh, why haven't I gotten a place of my own yet? Oh Yeah, because I'm on the waiting list to the apartments I can afford while studying.

The weather SUCKS!!! One moment it's so cold Satan's tits would freeze off and the next there's suddenly a warm front over DK, and the rapid changes makes my osteoarthritis act up. So right now I'm doped up on painkillers, bed bound and bored out of my skull.

But on the upside - DAY OF THE DOCTOR!!! The 50th anniversary Doctor Who Special had me gasping, giggling and tearing up, and I love it. One of my favourite scenes is the one with the frozen exploding Dalek and the three, yes THREE, Doctors standing in front. One word: AWESOMESAUCE!!!



I feel I should warn you that I'm going to be doing some very random posts for a while now, just to get back in the habit of keeping up with my online life.m

Hugs and Happy Thanksgiving to those Who celebrate it
Kira

Do you have some weird guilty pleasure concoction that makes people look at you funny?

I have several - some barely makes any sense to me,let alone the people around me. I'm currently eating a bowl of cottage cheese with raisins mixed in and drinking orange juice with a little lemon juice in it - and J is shaking his head at me, wondering if I've lost my marbles.(I have, but that's another story X3)

so what's your guilty pleasure? come and share - we're all mad here =3

Why SOPA is dangerous
To Sum Up
SOPA:
  • Gives the government the right to unilaterally censor foreign websites.
  • Gives copyright holders the right to issue economic takedowns and bring lawsuits against website owners and operators, if those websites have features that make it possible to post infringing content. [A comment feature is enough.]
  • Makes it a felony offense to post a copyrighted song or video.

This bill turns us all into criminals. If it passes, then you either stop using the Internet, or you simply hope that you never end up in the crosshairs, because if you’re targeted, you will be destroyed by this bill. You don’t have to be a big, mean, nasty criminal — common Internet usage is effectively criminalized under this law. This bill will kill American innovation and development of the Internet, as it will become too risky to do anything of value. It is toxic and dangerous, and should not, under any circumstances, be supported.

Spread the word, even you're not a US citizen, it is important for everyone!! It easy to do and it can change everything. More info by clicking on the banner.

Website Blocking

The government can order service providers to block websites for infringing links posted by any users.

Risk of Jail for Ordinary Users

It becomes a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if you are a totally noncommercial user, e.g. singing a pop song on Facebook.

Chaos for the Internet

Thousands of sites that are legal under the DMCA would face new legal threats. People trying to keep the internet more secure wouldn't be able to rely on the integrity of the DNS system.

Get on the phone and call your representative. Express your disapproval. Tell him or her exactly how you feel, and that you don't support this. Tell your friends to call their representatives, their Congressperson, and complain. Mention that you are a registered voter that takes your civic responsibility seriously and that you will use that vote to express your feelings about this.

“We support the bill’s stated goals — providing additional enforcement tools to combat foreign ‘rogue’ websites that are dedicated to copyright infringement or counterfeiting,” the Internet companies wrote in Tuesday’s letter. “Unfortunately, the bills as drafted would expose law-abiding U.S. Internet and technology companies to new uncertain liabilities, private rights of action and technology mandates that would require monitoring of websites.”  The chamber-led coalition in support of the bill includes Walmart, Eli Lilly & Co. and Netflix.

Google and other opponents of the legislation argue that restricting the Internet in the U.S. sets a bad international precedent and that the language defines infringing too broadly.
