Angels are Queer?

I'm Currently Avoiding:

My mind apparently works in strange ways. I already knew this fact, but I might as well emphasize it. Today, while I was walking down one of the myriad paths on my way someplaceorother, I took note of the many cloth banner things proclaiming it to be "Queer Month". Now, the thing that struck me as queer about these banners (horrible pun, I know, I'm sorry, I'll try to stop that), is that they all had part of a timeline for, I presume, important gay events. Now, there's nothing wrong with that, but the earliest year given was 1922 or 1926, I forget which. This leads me to the conclusion that gay people didn't exist before 1922. As if it was some long-running fad or something. Now, I fully realize that the practice of homosexuality has been around for a lot longer than that, but that was just what my mind came up with.

Word to your Mother

orientate (v. OR-ee-un-tayt or OR-ee-en-tayt)

1 : to point or turn toward the east

2 : to set in a definite position especially in relation to the points of the compass; also : to ascertain the bearings of

3 : to acquaint with a situation or environment

Orientate is a synonym of orient, and it has attracted criticism as a consequence. Orient, which dates from the mid-18th century, is in fact the older of the two verbs -- orientate joined the language in the mid-19th century. Both can mean to cause to face toward the east (not surprisingly, they are related to the noun Orient, meaning the East). Both also have broader meanings having to do with setting or determining direction or position, either literally or figuratively. Some critics dislike orientate because it contains an unnecessary extra syllable, but you can decide for yourself how important that consideration is for you. Personal choice is the primary deciding factor, although orientate tends to be used more often in British English than it is in American.

I don't really have anything else to say. Of course, that's never stopped me from writing an entry or a non-entry before. I thought Angel was really well done tonight. I had no trouble believing that they switched bodies. The way both actors managed to capture each other's personalities was really nice. They must've spent time on that. Buffy so far has irritated me. The way they seem to be going with this season is just ticking me off. But I think I'll wait a bit longer to see if I'm going to loathe this season or not. Not that me loathing this season is going to affect my watching it in any way whatsoever. I actually was sort of getting work done on my 6th chapter for a change, so I'm going away now. Well, if I can stay awake and healthy enough to work on it that is.
