“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F.

And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Cyanide and Happiness: Only The Lord Jesus Can Judge Us

San Angelo & The Grape Creek Bully

I saw this video posted on my Facebook news feed yesterday afternoon and it got me really upset.  It makes me sick that some people think bullying is okay.  IT IS NOT!

The video was posted by Andrea Disman, the boy's mother.  She clearly was at odds at what to do, but with the help of her friends and family she is moving forward and pressing charges.  I'm so fucking happy!!!  Ugh.  Excuse my French, but when you see the video you will understand.  If this was your child what would you do?  Sit around?  I don't think so.

I'm sharing this, because it just happened the day before yesterday in San Angelo, Texas.  San Angelo is located northwest of Austin.

In my humble opinion, everyone in that locker room who did not help this boy should be prosecuted!! Even the one who recorded it and thought it was funny.  This is an utter shame. The initial report  was done yesterday!  Way to go Andrea - you have supporters!

Pay Raise Time!!!

Today starts off with a bang!  Our annual salary increases go into effect at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center - woohoo!  Over the years I've used different calculators, but the last time I had pushed for a promotion I used this one and it's really great.  Whether you're requesting an increase in pay or simply want to know how much your getting.  Fill out the following information and you'll get your answer.

I highly recommend raisecalculator.com - it is my favorite of all calculators.  As you can see in the images I provided, you will enter your current pay rate - Annually, Monthly, Semi-Monthly, Bi-Weekly, Weekly or Hourly;  Enter the percent of increase, the hours worked per week and Ta-Da! You'll have your raise broken down into increments. [image 2]

I Now Know What The Harlem Shake Is

So apparently I'm not up to date with latest YouTube memes, and didn't know what a Harlem Shake was until someone pointed it out to me last night.

So I did a little research and this is what I found...
Exactly, the University of Nebraska's Gymnastics Team doing the "Harlem Shake".

Um, I'm not complaining, but why didn't I join Gymnastics when I was in high school or college? Lord have mercy.  Is it me or do none of these guys have an ounce of fat on them?

So if you're interested in watching the Nebraska Huskers beat the Oklahoma Sooners you still have time.  They have a meet this Sunday, March 3rd.
