Dance, you puppets, dance!
Okay my darling little blogites, I finally realised you can't put pictures on Blogger unless you actually pay for it. Because Blogger is poop. However, I did finally broke
down and created an ofoto album
just for my blog. At the moment I've only got a couple pictures of some sketches I was working on, just because ofoto was forcing me to put pictures in there at creation, but hey, maybe you'll enjoy them (Yeah, the three people who actually read this). I'm going to put a permalink to it above the message board link on the left, so don't get yourselves too confused trying to find it.

C.S. Lewis is the man
"We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased."

I'm young! Gimme gimme gimme!
So I'm finally putting together a wish list. Ignore the fact that it's extremely vain of me to think that anyone would actually want to spend money on me, and just think of it as a way of exploring my humanistic need for material possesions.

"Bye Greg... and thanks for always being happy!"
"He means 'gay'."
So, I've been thinking about this whole GLBT Highschool
idea, and I think I've come to the conclusion that I disapprove. Now, people who know me know that I have nothing against homosexuals. I don't exactly approve of the idea of homosexuality and I think even less of GLBT highschoolers, since I think that many of them are only as such because it's "trendy" (Note: Not all, just many). But that really has nothing to do with why I don't especially like the idea. I do think it's productive to allow teens to learn in an environment where they won't have to worry about being abused for who they are, or who they think they are. But the problem I see is with the heterosexual children who abused them in the first place. How does it help them to take the symptom of a deeper illness away? Shouldn't people be trying to get them the help they need? Removing homosexual children from public schools won't make the problem any better, it'll just brush it under the carpet until the abusers are on the 10 o'clock news as criminals in a hate crime. The instant abuse is reported in a school, someone should address the illness itself, not just the symptoms.
