Do you support this bill? I Don’t.

11.16.11, Congress holds hearings on the first American Internet censorship system. If it passes, the Internet and free speech will never be the same. [american censorship]

On Wednesday Jan. 18th thousands of sites will go dark to protest SOPA & PIPA, two US bills racing through Congress that threaten prosperity, online security, and freedom of expression.



Do you play a musical instrument? For how long?

I used to sing and dance when i was in k-3, and we would have recitals in the neighboring city. There was some music class in school 4-7, but I think they cut the program and i stopped as well. Although, there were times i would sing 90’s country songs. i don’t really enjoy humming. To this day if i hear people humming i get the guilts. If my mother hums i tell her to stfu.

My singing and dancing
I sang All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth in a solo, probably around 6y. I blocked that out, probably because of the stage fright (if i had any then – i have too much now).

I danced with with my groups, in costume.

edited: will add pics if found

I tried learning piano on my own when i was little because I admired my (P) Grandmother’s ability. It only lasted a couple days, off and on, never learned how to read the sheets or picked up the starter book again (lost that book). I do have a keyboard with retro multiplay features. I can play Mary had a Little Lamb. I don’t know if it’s the right notes but i do a verse very well. recently i got some new books from mom’s friends (who i should thank at some point).

don’t know when i’ll start again

The first time you drove a car. What was it like?

It has been 10 years since the drivers ed class.
The written test was easy enough and practical application had its good moments.
I passed the class and got a learner’s permit but i stopped driving after that.
I quit wanting/needing to drive because i was worried that i didn’t have enough concentration to watch the road. I thought my tv addiction would be a problem; thinking about it all the time, or my reflexes wouldn’t be quick enough, or i would overcompensate for that. So I started to let people drive me, rode a bus, or I just chose to walk.

The absolute first time, I was backing out of the driveway in a beat up blue Dodge Ram truck. It was mom’s truck and we were there together. I may have backed up too fast or something, and we both seemed to neglect the environment – which had two kids playing in their driveway right behind us. Nobody got hurt and i was yards away from them, but driving never sat well with me after that.

During my testing class, there was a similar moment. It’s been a while, but i think there was a ball rolling across the street and a kid. I braked easily and far enough away.

i never worked the equipment at a gas station, and i don’t remember testing on a freeway/highway.

pros of letting other people do for me: more sleep time, reading time, ignorance is bliss, cars are expensive, gas/oil industries expensive – wars, health, planet – it’s only by one person but….

I’ll have to start over again. 😦

Talk about three people you last e-mailed/tweeted, and why.

Oct 15 same tweet: Bill Maher,Keith Olbermann

i just thought this was awesomely cool 😀

Oct 16: GingerRawrrgers

I had tweeted that the X Files: FTF movie was on and had neglected to check my mention/replies to see if anyone was reading. I don’t usually tweet “my own” often unless it’s for #OWS or the #XF3 campaign (10/13), so retweets and replies were forgotten. I apologized.

Oct 17: Wil Wheaton
in response to his flash fiction
