Okay, I'm still computer-less and fixing the old one is starting to look very difficult. It's also kind of a dinosaur, so I may be better off just getting a new one, although as I also need new glasses and have roughly no money whatsoever, I don't know how that's going to happen. Also, I have no Photoshop, which is a major issues for the million or so LIMS contests I'm in. Woe.
For anyone interested in the Campaign for Civil Unions, we now have a Facebook group
, and we will soon have a website. There is also a new way that ANYONE IN AUSTRALIA can help.
We're currently doing a petition to pass the bill unaltered that we are going to give to a senator in about 5 weeks' time to present to the Senate. We need as many signatures as we can get, and they can be from ANYWHERE in Australia. We need people to actually sign copies of the petition, so PLEASE e-mail me if you're interested and I can send you copies for you and your friends to sign.
Even if there's only one signature, it's one more towards our goal, and we appreciate every one.
In fandom news, Fox is forgoing a pilot for Dollhouse
in favour of building a set, which...hopefully bodes well? (Can you figure out which fandom I'm most excited about right now?)Wife out and about
. Bad dress, pretty wife.
The cool cats over at starDOM got a kick-ass interview
.Jane Espenson & Tom Lenk weigh in on gay themes in scifi
. I think the fact that there's no openly gay characters on BSG (Cain excluded) speaks more about the 'verse they've created than the fact that theoretically it wouldn't be a problem. This article is so soft-core, it's all about how, in theory
, homosexuality is fine in a diverse future...but not worth actually talking about.
I am so tempted to do top fives :S
