Today, I picked up a copy of the fishwrap, aka the Collegiate Times. It had a copy of a booklet being handed out by the Scientologists, "The Way to Happiness - A Common Sense Guide to Better Living." I'm curious as to if it were allowed by EMCVT, or if the Scientologists were silly enough to stalk all of the CT boxes and slip them in all of the papers.
I think they did it legally, because there isn't *any* religious stuff in here... just a "moral code"/"how to be happy" thing. No mention of Xenu, Christ, Thetans, Buddha, Shiva, Ra, or other religious beings.
Anyway, the back of the booklet says:
"This is the first nonreligious moral code based wholly on common sense. It was written by L. Ron Hubbard as an individual work and is not part of any religious doctrine. Any reprinting or individual distribution of it does not infer connection with or sponsorship of any religious organization. It is therefore admissible for government departments and employees to distribute it as a nonreligious activity. (Reprinting can be arranged with The Way to Happiness Foundation International.)"
It says right there, "nonreligious". But knowing that I've seen the Scientologists handing them out....
It doesn't help that they seem to be seriously picking and choosing their words so there aren't any loopholes or anything.
It kinda reminds me of something Thweatt would do, in the way it is written.
They go on to define words, with the footnote:
"Words sometimes have several different meanings. The footnote definitions given in this book only give the meaning of the word as it is used in the text. If you find any words in this book you do not know, look them up in a good dictionary. If you do not, then misunderstandings and possible arguments can arise."
I'm going to set to reading this booklet, I will post thoughts on each chapter.
This is going to be fun.
The introduction says I'm supposed to pass it on to people that I want to survive. Reading it increases survival potential.
Church Yard Sale!
Monday. 4.30.07 10:01 pm
It seems that the church Dave is renting his room through likes having yard sales two days before my birthday. Last year I got wine glasses, fuzzy wine socks, and a cantaloupe magnet.
This year, I got a 9 dollar Burt's Bees hand care kit for .50, and 6 books, one of which is called Hitler's Children. It seems interesting.
But, the winning book? 2,001 Things to Do Before You Die.
It's got a checklist, and whoever is selling the book has checked off things.
What have they checked off?
- Catch a foul ball at a pro baseball game
- Have mutliple orgasms
- Pay for the next car at the toll booth
- Crush a beer can with one hand
- Be able to explain Einstein's theory of relativity
- Suddenly decide on and leave for a trip
- Stay in bed all day
- Do something scandalous
- Approach a stranger and ask him/her out
- Have a tremendous, rollicking, soaking wet, water pistol fight
- Wear a scarlet A and see what happens
- Say things like "eureka," "hallelujah,", and "balderdash."
Ok, now I'm bored.

What the fuck, Firefox? This is the third time restarting this entry.
Anyway. I didn't get the summer job I applied for. Means I'll be spending my summer in the ghetto, hating myself and wanting to die.
I'm pissed, I got another job I applied for, but it's not the job I wanted. I wanted one job, but they combined it with another job, so I applied for the combined job.
At some point, they decide that they're not going to combine the jobs anymore, but not tell anyone, until they've offered jobs. Of course, with my luck, I got offered the job that I didn't care to have.
At least the pay is the same, and there are perhaps 3 more hours...
Yay! I got one Summer job... not the one I particularly wanted, maybe it's the one she thought I wanted, but who knows.
The offers have come in increasing order of ... jobliness, so perhaps, since the last one was sent at 4.30p, perhaps there is the holy grail of emails waiting to be sent in the morning?
I also found a cute picture.
Dave isn't going to like this...

But, I'm pregnant.
Wait, I'm not pregnant, I have pregnant. Go figure.
How do I know?
Those pesky spammers know more about me than I ever will.
Sheesh. This is rough. :/
Went to Max's funeral yesterday, there were a lot of people. Overheard some old man talking about her injuries, I was curious, but I didn't want to hear him talking about it.
We came back, went for food, and I took a walk out into the ghettoes of MD. The main difference between this place and home is that instead of shitty apartments, there are townhouses, and many more... things to do?
So before I left for my walk, I looked out the back door/window. There were a bunch of urchins playing on top of Dave's sister's shed, with her ladder. They dropped the ladder at some point, breaking the window. They ran after that, I guess, or either when they heard me coming outside... We didn't find out the window was broken until today.
Now, a Note to religious groups.

As NuTang knows, I've been angry with the media following last week.
Now that the media has more or less left down, the religious zealots are here.
ZOMG! Take our pamphlet!
Do you know God?
You're a heathen, you can be forgiven!
Free food! Free drinks, snacks, and fruit! Just be proselytized to!
Religious people, go away. If we need you, we'll find you.
Methodists, you can stay. You give hugs, baked goods, and wishes of well-being, without any proselytizing. Keep doing that, and you'll stay awesome.

So I saw Donnell today, for the first time in FOREVER.
He brought me ramune, a snap-together model of May from Hand Maid May, and a Charmy kitty with those damn tasty white pellets that come in Japanese toy/candy sets.
I was Comp Dr. yesterday, I attempted to fix Debi and Dani's computers... but they were teh fux.
Debi calls Dell today:
debi: told one guy u put my hd in ur compie
debi: "u can't put dell hd's in hp comps"
debi: me: "yes u can"
debi: him: "no, she must've been using a cord and..."
debi: me: "no, I watched her. she physically took my hd out
debi: him: "....h/o, I need to check on that"
Wtf, Dell... o.O They must have gotten desperate for people to work for them?
A hard drive is a hard drive... I don't think you'd get much business with a proprietary adapter.
Though it doesn't make much sense to me to use the adapter they do... whatever. Their call.
The religious people were out and about today handing out paraphernalia. At least the Methodists gave out yummy treats and hugs, and not really... proselytizing.
