If you have been following my blog at all, I am sure you have deduced at this point that I am given to moments of deep thought and what a few village idiot's might term profound revelation.

I have compiled a list of things that I am, at eighteen, legally allowed to do.

  • I can get married without my parents permission and/or written consent
  • I can obtain a hand gun license, but not actually buy the gun
  • I can buy tobacco products of my choosing
  • I can particpate in the lottery, gambling and other vices
  • Pornography is now at my disposal
  • I can join the military at my own free will
  • I can vote for whom I wish to govern me as a constituant

Interestingly enough, these are either major decisions or major vices. As to the major decisions, that is a whole other arguement in itself, but to the vices, I simply pose the question is it right for the govenment to legislate morality?

The minimum drinking age is 21, why 21? And why drinking? Whenever I ask this question, people merely reply "because drinking is not only harmful to you, but endangers other's as well." Porn is just as harmful, maybe not as obviously, but it perpetuates and encourages sexual perversions and abuse, thus furthering our already molester-friendly enviroment. What is wrong with this picture? Does anyone else see the inconsistancy?

    Big inconsistency!

    And you can add one more thing to your list.

    You can now legaly (at least in Indiana) sell beer/wine to a customer - (for instance at a grocery store like where I work.)

This odd narrative is my life. I ended up in Pittsburgh, of all places--from the beach. I have no hobbies, other than cooking excessively and eating microwave popcorn. I enjoy shopping, the Food network, hiding the remote so the Food network cannot be turned off, find ethnic food stores and restaurants and reading voraciously. My life is decidedly pedestrian.


I worked in the car business where I was required to be ruthless and soul-less wench, which is when I started this project. Since then, I've kept it up because secretly, I've always wanted to join the military. Every male in my mother's family has joined and I quietly entertain thoughts of joining. I haven't yet and don't know if I ever will, but sending the troops cookies keeps me sane. it makes me think I still have a shred of human kindness left in my withering soul. it's a small way for me to salute the men and women who are brave enough to fight for freedom. And makes me feel like I'm contributing toward troop morale--even if I'm not. So if you want to help, send me addresses of troops you know stationed overseas. you may also contribute toward the cost of chocolate chips, but don't feel obligated, that link is here only by request.
