I'm writing this because it's so much easier to collect my thoughts and set them out in writing rather than speaking. Hopefully it explains things..

I love that quote from the Sandman comics. It's so appropos at the moment.

This is rather long, convoluted and rambly so I'll cut it hah.

Boy I haven't updated in a while. Except to post that link to my other blog about my trip to SHIMMER Women's Athletes. That weekend pretty much changed my life, and for the better. I want to do a year in review post, either here or on the new blog, but this is just an update.

The most important thing is that I'm typing this up from my new job. Yep, I've been hired and today makes my first full week of work. I started last Wednesday the 3rd. I'm a receptionist/switchboard operator for a hospital of sorts. My hours are second shift, 3pm to 11pm. Which means I can't do audio shows for Diva-Dirt anymore, except for our post-PPV shows on Sundays. But really, aside from that minor detail, this is probably going to be one of the best jobs I've ever had. Why?

My boss told me today, "You can read, surf the internet, whatever. As long as it's quiet up here." Last week I watched a movie the woman who's training me brought in. I can stay on twitter, I can watch the tv in the waiting room when no one's there, I can read my books, I can catch up on my wrestling dvds...I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. I mean something this good can't be without it's drawbacks, right? Well, the only other minor thing is that I don't have a set lunch. I can't get up and stay away for the alloted 30 minutes. I have to forward the phones back to the nurses station when I need to step away, and me being me, I don't like to inconvience anyone. But at least I can eat and drink at the desk.

The hours are actually really good, considering I now have a reason to get up early in the mornings. Or, rather, earlier than I have been getting up. The thing that really topped off the SHIMMER weekend and made it officially The Best Weekend Ever is the fact I met someone. Yes, I mean it in the sense that I met someone, heh.

Totally unexpected, wasn't looking, and neither of us saw this 'spark' that everyone else saw. His name is Lee I thought he was extremely cute when I saw him in person Saturday morning (we'd chatted abit over twitter, but nothing too extensive), but you know me. I'd never have made the first move. Apparently he thought I was rather cute as well, and at the afterparty (those SHIMMER afterparties are as legendary as they're made out to be!) he had enough to drink to be bold but not in his cups. He actually said he'd made an effort to be sober so he could look after me, something that I found really touching. As it was, he told me I was cute and kissed me. Twice. Which about knocked me off the chair.

When we all got back to the hotel (I roomed with a friend I'd met via twitter/DD, and hung out with a group I met the same way. I'm pretty damn lucky in the fact that everyone I've ever come into contact through online hasn't been a killer or something.), all of us hung out in one of the rooms. Lee had forgotten his backpack in the car, so when he went to get it, he asked if I wanted to go. Turned out there was a patio outside and the weather was nice, so somehow I ended up in his lap. That's where we stayed. And talked. And kissed. For three hours. *BLUSH* It was 4 a.m. when my phone rang incessantly until I finally picked up. I forgot I had the key card to the room and my roomie's flight was at 7 a.m. Whoops. He held my hand as we made our way around to where the main rooms were, and where Shanti (my room), Eric & Steven were waiting. They promptly started clapping, the geese hehe..turns out we were the topic of a lot of talk that night. And since then, apparently.

It's crazy, I'd always been told when you weren't looking for someone, that's when you'd find him/her. This proved to be the case. He's tall, handsome, sweet, has a sharp wit and a great sense of humor, very romantic (despite his claims he's not, he's done a very good job so far), intelligent, educated...I could go on, but you get the point. The only drawback is..well, he lives in Leicester.

That'd be Leicester, United Kingdom. As in England. As in another continent, separated by the Atlantic Ocean. *Facepalm* My mother looked at me and said, "Why can't you find someone in this state?" Funny enough, Lee asked me twice that night the same question. Or at least a variation of it. "So what's wrong with the guys in Kentucky?" Hah! The problem's probably more on my end, to the extent that I don't go out, so it limits my chances of 'finding' someone. But at the same time, I'm picky, and like the Lady GaGa lyric says, I do not accept any less than someone just as real, as fabulous. I don't settle. And that night, I knew it was probably very foolish to get even that much involved with someone who would be leaving the country in a day. (I drove back home on Monday, he flew home Tuesday.)

I didn't care. I felt incredibly attracted to him and I knew the risks and went for it anyways. I felt a little worried since I didn't want to be perceived as the type of woman who makes out with a lot of guys, but he knew I wasn't and during one of the long talks we've had since then I've told him about my past love life. So he knows what type of person I am.

Once we were back in our regular places,we had (and still do) long talks. He sorta thought that I'd stop caring about him once he was back home. That's not in my nature though..during those 3 hours we talked on the patio, I told him a lot of things about myself that I normally wouldn't to someone I'd technically just met. I felt like I could trust him, and that trust has been proven to be well founded. So I told him that's not how I operate. Even if we didn't see each other again (which is unlikely, as we'll both be at SHIMMER), I told him he'd always have a part of my heart, if only for the fact I could trust him. He admitted he'd been thinking about me a lot...so to make a long story short (too late, I know!), we're giving this a shot. Except for when one or both of us has had a previous engagement, we've talked everyday via Skype (God bless technology), or twitter, and even the various text message.

So my new job hours work out VERY well. Since there's a five hour difference (he's ahead by 5 hours), and he works mornings, when I get up and get ready, as long as I'm on around noon, I can chat with him for a few hours. Then when I get home, if I'm around, we can chat briefly when he gets to work. (Although that'll probably change since it's starting to wear on me.) It's not a bad system, better than it would've been, say, ten years ago or what not.

And...he wants to fly me over to Britain. For Valentine's Day no less. *Blush* And he thinks he isn't romantic. It'd be the most romantic gesture I've ever received. Plus, after SHIMMER weekend in March, we're flying out to Vegas with the rest of the Brits to spend a week there and hang out with THE Allison Danger. I wasn't even thinking about going but Lee kinda co-opted me, so to speak. Or Danger just assumed I was, when she found out about our relationship. Either way...I'm going to become one very well traveled woman next year.

I've already cleared, or given my boss a headsup at least, about Britain in Feb. Hopefully March won't be a problem either, but I don't think it will. I won't get paid for the days off I take, but that's not a problem. I should have a healthy sum built up before then. The pay is more than what I was making at MCC, a clear win right there.

So...for as lousy as this year started, things have dramatically improved. In most areas, at least. Mom's health is another thing all together. That seems to be deterorating..not drastically, but enough to cause concern. I'm not sure what to do, to be honest. I've got to work, I can't stay there and take care of her. And I'm tired of trying, honestly. I've got to keep my life separate. I'll still do what I can of course, but I'm not going to let her worries and fears keep me from doing things or going places. If she'd had her way I never would've went to Berwyn. And I'm so glad I did.

At the moment, I'm happier and more content than I have been in a long time. It's been a tiring year, but everything seems to be turning the corner. As long as that other shoe doesn't drop, the year looks to end on a very high note. ^_^

My Excellent Adventure - to SHIMMER

I honestly would've put everything here, but I know LJ has a word limit and blogspot doesn't. So here's the link to my blog post about my trip to Berwyn for two days of the best female wrestling in North America.

http://alistaffirmations.blogspot.com/2010/10/my-shimmer-adventure.html

At the bottom is a link to my flickr account where I put up all my pics. Best weekend, and one of the best experiences of my life, bar none. I can't wait to do it again~!

Wow so it's been a while..

I had no idea it'd been so long since I made an actual entry. How y'all doing? :D

Been a lackluster year so far, I'll tell you that.

I got fired from my job in January. I'd had enough abuse from this patient's relative and talked back to her. After being suspended from work for 3 days I was fired on Friday Jan 22nd. Ugh, despite the abuse, I was really devastated. After all, the location was great, the people I worked with were nice, the hours & pay were good..

But I have to admit, my folks were so supportive. Apparently for the two weeks prior to being fired, my mom had noticed a real change in my mood and not for the better. After 7, almost 8 years, I suppose it was time to leave. Plus in 2007 we were purchased by a bigger company and the changes were not for the better.

So now I'm on unemployment and actively looking for a job. Go me!

But the extra time has allowed me to de-stress...or as much as I can while worrying about getting a job. I've become quite addicted to twitter. Rotf, it's funny I've gone from chat rooms to IMs to LJ to facebook to twitter. I even have a 'professional' blog that I started after being challenged by a friend of mine.

But I adore twitter, mainly because of the contact it allows you with celebrities. Or in my case, wrestlers. Mainly the women, and they're really good to their fans. In my case, I've sent messages to & received replies from the following:

Mickie James (as detailed in my last post when I got published on diva-dirt.com)
Melina (a TON! She is SO freakin' friendly and sweet and kind, she's become a real inspiration to me!)
Michelle McCool
Layla
Savannah aka Angela Fong (I actually met her when SD/ECW came to Louisville in Jan. I got a pic with her after the show and asked her why wasn't she wrestling in the WWE. She said that this was something new for her and we'd see what the future held. I complimented her on her wrestling because her stuff in FCW is fantastic.)
Chris Jericho
Daffney
LuFisto

*cough*..I actually have them saved to a Word document on my computer, all the tweets I've gotten from them. It's just really special to me that however busy they are, they take the time to correspond with the fans. Melina in particular, her fans have gotten to know her really well due to the WWE Raw chat each Monday and twitter.

So I'm a Twitterholic. XD If you want to find me on there, I'm JenniferL134.

Also in September, I'm going to my first SHIMMER tapings!! Tickets go on sale tomorrow and whether or not I have a job in Sept, I'm there. I can't wait, I've become addicted. I now have Volumes 1 - 6, and 13 - 28. Still trying to locate the elusive 7 - 12 (esp 7, it's like trying to mine for gold).

So I'm uber excited about that. Plus ROH is coming to Louisville in July, I may get tickets for that.

Heh it's a little embarrassing but thats been the biggest highlights of the year so far for me. Turned 28 on May 13th, whoo hoo.

Oh, I have been reading a lot more about feminism and educating myself. There's a lot of sexism that I never saw until lately, it's been a real eye-opener how much crap still goes on.

Randomly...Betty White on SNL = freakin' sweet. Best SNL I've ever seen.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6iAuPmFkuY

^^ This is a link to a recent Conan O'Brien tour show where he had a dance off between him, Stephen Colbert & Jon Stewart. I'm not sure how the world didn't implode from so much awesomeness on one stage.

I'm sickened by this oil spill. The pictures of animals...I can't even look at those, I'll end up crying. But I think it's interesting that normally people who don't want the govt involved in anything private sector are jumping all over the President for not getting involved sooner. WTF? You can't have it both ways! Sigh...

Anyhoo, I'll wrap this up. Good night and good luck!

Attention fellow SHIMMER devotees!! I'm slowly building my SHIMMER DVD collection but I've run into a snag. I've got Vols 1 - 6, as well as some of the later Volumes, but I can't find #'s 7 - 13. Has this happened to anyone else? And can anyone recommend how to find these volumes?

I'd be grateful for any advice!!

OMG I hate technology.

I had to re-load Windows XP today. I lost all my internet links, my files, my pictures, photos, etc. Stuff I'd had from 1997 until this year.

......

There's not enough words to convey how mad I am about this. Plus I'm mad at myself for not backing up my files. !@(#$&(!@#$&!@*(#$&!@(*$&!@*($&Q@*($&@*(#$&@#*($&@#

I do have some items that I loaded to websites like LJ and flickr.com but it's scarce compared to what I had. =/

What is the one simple indulgence you could never live without? Would you consider giving it up permanently for any amount of money?


Books. There are some that are necessary (for work, etc.), but tons are indeed an indulgence. And I couldn't give them up for anything.

Do you usually experience a let-down after the holidays or a wave of relief that the social obligations are over?


Both. Not so much that social obligations are over, but that all the preparations are over and done with and gone for another year. But the let-down comes because IMO you have such a long period getting ready for an event thats over in less than 24 hours. So how can there not be some type of let-down afterwards? Then you have all the stuff you'll have to put away in a week or two.

But I suppose it's worth it. *Wiggles her toes* Because I have new, warm, fuzzy socks. And I <3 fuzzy socks. Whee! :D

Heh I'm on facebook more now than I am on here. But I'm still keeping up with people and communities here.

On Friday, my parents and I are leaving for Washington D.C.! I'm excited, I've never been before. Plus we're going to head down mid-next week to my favorite aunt and uncle in Virginia Beach. So I get a nice long vacation.

Which I need. Between my aunt that's in town here, and the patients at work...my patience is running on low. I need to recharge my batteries pronto.

Hope all is well with everyone! If you want to friend me on facebook, just message me here and I'll respond with my full name so you can look me up. Or give me yours and I'll look you up. ^__^

From Dr. Polidori's Lord Ruthven to Stephenie Meyer's Edward Cullen, the annals of vampire lore are filled with attractive, charming bloodsuckers. Which one would you most want to be bitten by?


Wow, so few said this but it came to mind immediately - the first, the original: Dracula.

If we're speaking of a specific Dracula, then it'd be either the original played by Bela Lugosi (those eyes are magnificent!), or the '79 version played by Frank Langella. Such passion, such sensuality! A third choice would be the 2000 version played by Gerard Butler.

But no matter what version, it'd have to be the original Count Dracula.

It's 1 a.m., my stomachs fussy and I've been sleeping almost the entire day. So what better time to update my LJ?

Not that there's much to update. Work is work. There've been a couple of people let go, and rumors. My company was bought by a hospital/corporation, and it took a hit last year. This year there'll be no raises for us, and when its slow people are having to take days off without pay (or with pay if we have the time). I don't know what would've happened if we hadn't sold our company to this hospital/corporation, but I do know that the doctors do have their regrets about selling. I was against it but hey, what do I know.

I've been pushing back against one of the Doctors I work for who is very verbally abusive at times. I'm tired of being a passive receptical, and when he started getting loud I looked at him, put my hand out towards his face and lowered it saying "Lower your voice." He looked at me in disbelief and sighed in fustration. I told him he was fussing at the wrong person. It was about the stupidest thing too. I wish he'd retire. Today he's 78 I believe, or 77. Either way, he probably won't. His father started the company I work for and died while actually in his office, seeing patients. His son'll probably wind up the same way.

A month ago, my mother and I signed up for a gym down the street where I work. It has tons of classes that are good for both of us, and I've started the "Intro to Yoga" and "Intro to Pilates". I like the Yoga better, but both will be good for my spine and getting into shape. They offer a Tai Chi and Dance Rhythms exercise classes I haven't started yet but I'm going to.

This past week, I re-read the Sandman series. Mike introduced me to these comics, produced by Vertigo/DC Comics, and although I still love the X-Men and Batman, the Sandman series and it's various spin offs are my all time favorite. And it's interesting, I picked up a lot of things that I missed the first few times I read these comics...they're like that, you'll always find new things in them each time you read them. The desire to find more was so big that yesterday I stopped in one of our best comic stores and wound up spending a hundred and four dollars. Granted, half was on the Spiderman comic that had President Obama in it, the next Essential X-Men, and X-Infernus (big fan of Illyana/Magik), but I found a TPB that involved Destiny (one of the 7 Endless featured in the Sandman comics - the other 6 being Dream {Sandman/Morpheus}, Death (my favorite), Despair, Delirium, Desire and Destruction), and one that featured stories from the Dreaming & characters in the Dreaming. I also saw a TPB featuring the Thesslian witch but didn't get it...wish I had now.

These are a lot more adult than X-comics and even Batman comics. They're also deeper and have meaning in them. I'm awfully glad Mike introduced me to them. I just wish there was more, and comics based on all the Endless, including the new Dream, Daniel. Maybe there is, I'll have to look.

Stomach is still all jumbly. Bleh.

We're going to the Zoo tomorrow, weather permitting. Yay!

A lot of death lately. Michael Jackson. Ed McMahon. Farrah Fawcett. In the midst of Michael's, someone passed that had just the briefest mention in the malestrom.

Robert McNamara, President Kennedy's Secretary of Defense as well as President Johnson's, passed on July 6th. He was hated under President Johnson for the Vietnam war (commonly called "McNamara's War"), but this was unjust. The war was begun under Truman and each President escalated it further until it came to it's ultimate evolution under Johnson. McNamara was another one of it's victims in my opinion. He was a good man, and a key supporter of the blockade of Cuba during the Cuban Missle Crisis. Perhaps I'm biased by his portrayal in the movie "Thirteen Days", or perhaps because he was a part of President Kennedy's cabinet. That war ruined a lot of people - most prominently President Johnson. But I digress.

Then yesterday we learned late that Walter Cronkite died at age 92. Not unexpected given his age, but still...him and Edward R. Murrow are journalists that with their passing, an age has gone as well. Now it's all 24 hour news and sensational headlines and truth is mixed with opinion. Cronkite never gave his own opinion about the news he reported, except on a few rare occassions - but even then he made sure to stress that it was his own opinion and not news. He strove to find the truth in the news he reported, and when it was mistaken he owned up to it and made no excuses or blamed anyone else. He was what more so-called 'journalists' nowadays should strive to be. But aren't.

Truly he'll be missed.

A local radio station, 105.1 LRS has been changed from alternative/hard rock to talk radio. This really pisses me off. The lineup is all conservative garbage, except for two that lean more middle of the road. But really, Glen Beck? Michael Savage? This stuff is already on the AM stations, now it has to be on FM too? Living in Kentucky pisses me off when it comes to politics. We're so conservative when you get outside of Louisville, it's scary.

I went back to Wisconsin in June to visit Becky and Aldous, and one of the things I liked was how Progressive Madison seems to be. Plenty of progressive radio stations to listen to, which faded the farther south I got. Sigh. We get no progressive stations here, you'd think it would kill someone to put a progressive program on 105.1.

I briefly put it on yesterday after leaving the comic shop only to hear Michael Savage say that Obamaites are cold, heartless people.

...Wtf? Last time I looked, I had a heart and was a pretty warm person. !@(#$&!@*#$&!@*($#&!@*(#&!#@$*&

It's fustrating to NO end.

But my trip north was wonderful. I love visiting Becky and Aldous, they're such warm and friendly people. Becky's one of the few folks from '97 that turned into a great friend, and Aldous has too despite only being around him twice. They're a lovely couple, I'm glad she found him.

Speaking of friends from '97, I found Stacy on facebook. She had sent me a letter a couple of months ago, having found out about Andrew, and sent me her condolences. I was so touched and sent a reply that she didn't respond to. I actually googled her name and once I found out what she does for a living, it wasn't a surprise that she didn't respond. She's a very popular and well known wedding photographer, having her own website and apparently having done wedding shots in various states. Her shots are awesome, and weird as it sounds, I'm so proud of her. She's done well for herself, and being so young. Then again I knew, out of our group, she was one who'd not settle for anything less than making the most of her potential. Which she had gobs of. I told her that if I ever get married, she's doing my photos.

Wow, this entry is longer than I expected, It's 15 'til 2 a.m. but I'm not tired.

I facebook a lot lately. I'm there under my full name so feel free to send me a friend request. It's amazing how many wrestlers are on there. I think I even have the real Melina friended, although she's nothing like I thought she'd be. Cheerleader Melissa is on there, she's awesome.

Speaking of wrestling, TNA's Knockout division is quickly becoming the best thing TNA has got going for it. There is so much talent, it's overflowing. WWE could/should take notes - but it won't. They're going back to more PG-13 content, as evidenced by the bikini wrestling match. The poor women wrestlers, for every step they take (i.e., the awesome fatal 4 way match for #1 contenders status on RAW a couple of weeks ago), management/Vince has them take 5 steps back. There's so much established talent there (Beth, Mickie, Melina, Natalya, Gail Kim, Jillian, Katie) that most they don't do anything with, plus the potential/getting better talent (Michelle McCool, Alicia Fox {VERY impressive}, Eve, the Bellas {that hurt to write but it is true}), and the developmental talent (Serena Deeb {from OVW and SHIMMER who shouldn't even BE in developmental}, Angela Fong}...yet Vince refuses to take women's wrestling completely seriously.

WWE's loss is TNA's gain however. especially with the addition of Sarita, a Japanese talent that I can't remember her name at the moment, and the unleashing of Cheerleader Melissa (under the silly name of Alyssa Flash - what is WITH TNA and their names? Thats my only complaint.) from her Raisha Saeed gimmick - plus Victoria/Tara as champ allowing her to show her full range of talent again, and established talent like Sojo Bolt, Sharmell (who really does have wrestling ability, just was never given the chance to show it), Kong, Angel Williams, Madison Rayne, Taylor Wilde and DAFFNEY. OMG I love Daffney, she's so damn hardcore going into the tacks! LOVE IT. Thats the kind of matches I want the women in the WWE doing, ladder matches, submission matches, first blood, no DQ...and the Melina that friended me on facebook wants the same, she's apparently thinking of leaving the WWE because she's fed up with women's wrestling being looked down on. Again I'm not 100% sure it's the real Melina, but it seems to be. If so, she's pissed and wants to be in the kind of matches I've listed above, to show that the women are as good as the men.

So if Melina does end up jumping ship, I'll know it's the real one, and I've given a heads up. To anyone who likes wrestling that is, and has read this far heh.

Now I'm a bit tired and maybe my stomach'll quit. So I'll stop now. I hope all is well with everyone! :D Goodnight!

-- I can't confirm the validity of the following piece, but it was apparently written from the perspective of an anonymous former WWE Diva giving her tongue-in-cheek take on the afterlife of a WWE Diva, largely taking aim at her peers and the numerous fans that attend wrestling conventions (which almost always have a slew of former WWE Divas on hand).

The piece has been forwarded around to numerous wrestling sites, including this one. An interesting read to say the least:

20 Official Rules For WWE Diva Afterlife

Written by a former WWE Diva

1. Don't worry, it will grow back fine... just cut it down and stop bleaching it dummy. Now your natural color will be seen as a "new look" and you will experience refreshed marketability. Take some brand new all natural 8x10's at Wal-Mart and work it girl!

2. Remember you can always bleach your hair again back to the "classic look" to boost your self esteem for a week. If you ever get cancer from the dye, just ask Dawn Marie to sell her unwashed panties through Wrestlers Rescue to help pay for the medical bills.

3. If your just coming off TV, then your used to the schedule. Always starve yourself before every appearance and pig out at your favorite fast food restaurant afterwards. Nothing new. Eating disorders and binging cycles are totally normal and healthy. It's a Diva's way of life, 4-life.

4. If you haven't done so already, you need to go **** either Scott Levy, Batista or Ric Flair before he dies. Do a few lines of coke with them too. It makes for a great tell all shoot and high self worth.

5. The wrestling convention circuit is 10x200. The same 10 money marks will book you and the same 200 losers will show up each time. Milk 'em for all they are worth cause it's all you got left. Virgil will be at every show so you might as well get to know him too. And yes, he is a real creep.

6. Appearing at 3 Flea Markets per week is officially known as "doing a tour". Congrats on the success!

7. Letting men touch your breasts for an extra $5 during photo-ops is an excellent business strategy.

8. If the photo-op printer ever stalls and delays, just give them an index card with your own lip prints on it. It will make their day that you were soooo selfless, giving and thoughtful of their patience.

9. It's perfectly normal to refer to other human beings as "fans", "clients" and "followers" but to their face- always call them "friend".

10. Always smile and play nice with the co-workers you haven't seen in 5 years. These are your "best friends in the whole world"....somehow? That's how the wrestling family illusion rolls on.

11. Treat the disabled extra nice. Them pockets are deep with Social Security money and they spend like mad at the gimmick table.

12. You will never draw like Trish Stratus, you will never look like Trish Stratus and you will flat out never be Trish Stratus... but don't ever stop trying hun'.

13. But yes, I know you are still a big star... right in your head.

14. Even if you got fired, always say that you left "on your own terms" or because of an "undisclosed dispute". This will always make you appear above the business.

15. Always say that a WWE return is "right around the corner" and "never say never" when you know damn well they wouldn't take you back if you begged.

16. When the going get's tough, selling your used tampons on eBay is a great way to make some additional cash.

17. I know the crows feet and wrinkles are building up. It's ok, no one is going to seriously book your used up, worn out ass after age 45 anyway. It's now time to assume the Moolah role.

18. There's nothing wrong with forever living in the past. Tammy Sytch still lives in 1996, and look there's nothing wrong with her.

19. Why have any normal relationships? You can have every lonely pervert from Philadelphia to Oakland lusting after you. Being emotionally unstable is F U N!

20. Remember that Jesus forgives you for all of your sins, so everything listed above is A-OK. Just rinse and repeat.

In closing: Yes this is one sad life but hey it's all you know.... so do it like a professional!

The 135th Derby was just ran. I picked "Mine that Bird" to win, putting 50 bucks on it mainly because the jockey, Calvin Borrell is most excellent.

The horse was dead last at the middle of the race.

AND HE WOUND UP WINNING!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WON A THOUSAND DOLLARS ON THIS BEAUTIFUL HORSE WHO'S ODDS WERE 50 - 1.

Pay THIS lady booyah!!!!!!

And I've never picked a Derby winner. Ever.

DERBY ON!

Amazon.com is into censorship now?

Long story short - Amazon.com seems to be stripping the sales figures and accompanying rankings from GLBTQ books, erotica, and romance novels, particularly those with what they term “adult content.” Making it almost impossible to find said items in the searches. This includes the classic "Lady Chatterly's Lover".

Yet you can still find obviously pornographic items like Playboy (including a collection of Playboy covergirl covers)...

WTF? In addition to censorship, it's also discrimination. If you're going to do this for the above items, then do it for everything with "adult content". It's also interesting they did it over a holiday weekend when it'd be less likely to be discovered. Although it's now spread like wildfire. Google "amazon rank", it's been made into a Googlebomb already.

Me, I'm spreading the word because I despise censorship in any way, shape or form. And I hate hypocrisy, which is exactly what Amazon is engaging in. Until it changes, I seriously doubt I'll be buying from them any time soon. =/

She has a list of titles that have been stripped of their rankings.

And apparently an amazon spokesperson has been quoted as saying this was a "glitch" and they're working on it.

...Glitch. Uh huh.
