“Remember how you said that the beef stew was a little thin for your taste? Well, I added some stuff to it and cooked it down, and now it’s nice and thick. Do you want me to save you some?”
“You know, sometimes I think you have the impression I don’t like your cooking. I think you’re a good cook.”
“I know. But it’s not just enough to be good. I’m a perfectionist. It can’t just be good, everything has to be faaaaabulous!”
“Well, you already are fabulous.”
“Awwww! I’m going to eat the last of the stew for lunch.”
Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance. My cousin out in California and I had a falling-out because I kept trying to raise his awareness about trans issues. Regardless of what you think about trans genitalia, or whether trans sex is “real sex” (take a wild guess as to where I stand on that issue), I think we can all agree that transfolk have the right to, you know, live. Without being beaten, maimed, or murdered. I think that the ability to walk down the street undisturbed is a basic human right we can all agree on.

Yet another reason for me to get a Roomba (I need to amass a good amount of them in order to overcome that “but we’re in a recession” voice in the back of my head):
I can’t imagine my timid kitty would ever actually ride the thing around the room like that. But still, soooo cuuuuuute! Robot friends!

GAH!!! Roombas are EEEEVVVIIIILLLL!!!! 😉
I was watching my friends condo this summer and her had one. So I set it to work and tha the damn thing followed me. At first I thought it was just random but then I noticed when I entered a room it would spin on the spot and beeline right at me! The only thing that kept it from constantly following me was the little laser door stops you can set up to keep the Roomba to a certain section.
If I were you, I’d be more concerned about the fembot:
What I want to know is whether she and five of her friends can combine to form one GIANT ROBOT!!!!
