Is this our future?

I was really crushed this past Tuesday when the decided to uphold PROP 8., so I let Juan convince that I should go to a "peaceful" demonstration in front of Outback Steakhouse. Juan was passing out signs and I chose the one that said "MY GOD LOVES US ALL" because in my heart I truly do believe that. People would roll down their windows and shout "faggots", which I still will never get used to. One woman rolled down her window and pointed at me and said "God doesn't love you because of your sin!", to which my reply was the Vulcan saying "Live Long and Prosper!". I know it wasn't much but it was something. Some old lesbian came up to me and tried chastise me for responding back to the car. She said we want to make a good impression for the media and what if a reporter heard what I had said. This cute 22 year old girl said "I think we're safe if 'Live Long and Prosper' gets the media attention. I'm angry with how this whole thing turned out. We'd better get ready!

I loved the new Star Trek movie, but my only complaint is there is never enough time for Uhura in any of the movies! I would like her to be more that SPOCK's love interest! It would be really interesting to see her have some great action scenes. The new actress playing her was great and seems like she can pull it off. What do you think?

Last Saturday night I went with the boys to Bakersfield's newest gay bar "902" or "The Beach Club"--shit, I don't think that bar even has a name yet. I had a few drinks and danced to quite a few songs, when Alex and I thought we would make sure that Juan wasn't getting into any trouble. He was seated at a table with quite a few guys who were all very friendly. After some conversation we discovered that we shared a mutual (former)friend and one of the guys at the table realized who we were. To this potential new friend, we had become THE LETHAL LEGION in a matter of minutes. Alex (Black Devil) was the evil intellectual one, Paul (The Unforgiven) was the bitch who refused to believe in second chances, and Juan (The New Kid) became the young guy who blindly follows us around. I should add that I was quite lost while this guy was talking about his friend. I had no clue what was going on, until Black Devil said the friends name again (for the sake of this story he will be given a new code name): THE CHICKEN-HAWK! The best part was when this guy finally figured out who I was. Yes, Bald Bastard had told you many things about me and you didn't know what to believe. This guy discovered that I was the one he should fear the most because of everything he was told. He was told that I was crazy, a bully, and a liar. He told us that Bald Bastard tried to get a restraining order put on me, that I was bullying him over the internet (well, that's true!) and that my former relationship with Quilter was all in my head. I thought I would get upset or at least, feel something painful--but I didn't. I knew the truth about the situation and didn't feel the need to explain my past to someone I don't even know. That's really good progress for me and I am proud of myself. To be fair to the rest of the Legion, I too need a new name. I will have to think of one. Suggestions?

Although I still think SECRET INVASION wasn't the greatest, I was VERY excited that the folks at Marvel Comics decided to bring back Mockingbird. She was the type of character who didn't need a man to save her--as she could take care of herself. I glad to see her back in the Avengers again.
