“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. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. 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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Just Sayn'

And this is why all of you love watching Baseball.  Just Sayn'

The Human Test - Volumes 2 & 3

Ever since I posted the first volume to The Human Test, two more have been released.  The first two videos, produced by vlogger, ZeFrank, are quite hilarious and true, but the third is a little somber.

The second volume is titled "Volume 2,  Difficulty: Easy", while the third is titled, "Volume 3: Love & Loss, Difficulty: Medium".

I answered yes to most questions so I suppose this makes me human... Check them out, they're pretty cool.  Are you human?

The Ultimate Spaceship Face-off

If you're a Star Trek, Star Wars, Dr. Who, or science fiction aficionado, you may like this interactive chart.

Author, Chris Kirk over at Slate has created a "highly speculative search for the fastest ship in science fiction" by comparing the speeds of the Star Trek Enterprise NCC-1701, Star Wars' Millennium Falcon, the TARDIS from Doctor Who, the Heart of Gold from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the Jupiter 2 from Lost in Space, and even our very own Voyager 1 from NASA.

Kirk gives a very detailed account of his research in reference to each ship; You will find this by clicking on the image to the right, where you can set a course for the Alpha Centauri, Galactic Center, or Andromeda Galaxy.  

Surprisingly, what may take the Enterprise decades to reach, the Millennium Falcon can reach in hours, the TARDIS in just seconds.

Return From Blog Break

Two weeks ago I thought I was about to die, because Ryan and I came down with Strep Throat the day before our vacation;  It was not pretty, but we managed to pull through.  Luckily, we were still able to make our trip to Corpus Christi to visit my parents.  And what a breath of fresh air that was.  We went to Port A, did a few shopping, and ate and ate, and ate. LOL.  My mom's carne guisada and fresh tortillas were to die for.

When we got back to Houston, Ryan and I celebrated our 8 year anniversary by having dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant in The Woodlands, Pallottas Italian Grill, watching a movie, and shopping.

Of course, as with any break, world events continue and trying not to write about them, or share my opinions was difficult, but I managed to stay off my blog during this time off.   

To close, I'd like to pray for those in Oklahoma who endured those awful tornadoes.  I cannot begin to imagine what this is like and I pray they will find solace in knowing many people love them.
