Thanks, Shirley. :) I think studying law has influenced my ideas a lot. I believe in the seperation of church and state, but that works both ways. Just because something is legal doesn't mean it is in the eyes of God, and vice versa. I'm not sure why Christians object to gay marriage as a legal concept - just because they are married in law doesn't mean they are married in the eyes of the Lord. Similarly, there is an unmarried couple at my church with two children, who love each other very dearly. Legally, they aren't married (they can't afford a wedding, and they want to wait until they can do it properly) but I'm pretty sure they are married in the eyes of God. My point is, if you don't believe God will recognise gay marriage, why are you bothered about the law recognising it? Those are two totally seperate issues.
Hope I didn't just go and spoil your opinion of my opinion. :p
I just gave one of the Pesticles a grape for using the litter tray. He shoved it into his mouth and bounced gleefully off. So cute. I love my boys.
The Cheezburger network has changed its website layout slightly! Confusion ensues!
I woke up this morning with a burning desire to draw metal bettas.
I didn't get into trouble on Monday about guitar after all, because I managed to shut my fingers in a door and couldn't play. It was an accident, but it was nevertheless well-timed. On the downside, it hurt like a poke in the eye, and I kept catching the bruised parts on everything - my desk, more doors, a drawer, a cupboard...it never rains but it pours, as they say.
My mum is going to England in a few weeks to spend time with her mum. I'm quite jealous, because we haven't been back since Christmas 07. That's a long time to not see your grandparents in. More than that, I really miss the country. Australia is great and all, and I don't want to live in England again at the moment, but it is still such a part of my childhood. I miss the castles and the heaths, white swans, autumn, frost, crocuses, the pasty shop and the ice-cream shop on the pier, the mud, trees that you could actually climb (gum trees make terrible climbing trees), squirrels, birds that twitter at dawn instead of screeching. I've been in Australia 11 years now.
WOW. What is with the ads today? Right next to this text box, I have an ad for preventing separation, one for promoting it, and one encouraging guys to date married women. What is the world coming to?
I'm going to go to my final English lecture today instead of my property tutorial. It's not a strategically good decision, but I have great affection for my English class and this week, for funsies, we are doing a movie in which Tom Hiddleston acts. Rrrrr. Miss Austen Regrets. I haven't done the reading for Property anyway. I'll get together with my friends to practice some exam papers.
My problem is, I'm so excited about the holidays that I'm not studying well. Stupid me.
