Words fail me at how unbelievably bad this ad is. Christine O’Donnell decides to go with filming herself, wearing black against a spooky black background with blue nebulous swirls, and the first words out of her empty little head are “I am not a witch. I’m you!” (Hint, remember how well “I am . . . → Read More: Christine O’Donnell Ad – EPIC FAIL
Groan! Christine O’Donnell seems to be rather a whack job. First off, I believe that the more usual construction is “dabbled IN”,”not dabbled INTO”, okay?
More importantly, (and speaking as someone who has been pagan/a witch for going on 2 decades now), witches and Satanists are 2 completely different groups. These statements that O’Donnell . . . → Read More: O’Donnell makes light of witchcraft comment
My friend Aaron, who relocated to the west coast a few years ago, was back for a visit, so he came over to visit some mutual friends in the Craft, and I stopped in. It was a very nice time. At one point, the infamous Lamb Hat was brought out for photos. (Forthcoming) Aaron . . . → Read More: Visiting with friends
I have had a few incidences recently of helping folks to make connections; a school counselor contacted me about resources for GLBT youth, so I did a small resource spewing thing. Someone else contacted me about an event in a rural area that they were setting up. I posted the article online, and then . . . → Read More: Feeling happy
We were having our weekly programmers’ meeting this morning, and some folks talked about “the most wonderful time of the year” and about being excited about this coming weekend. My first thought was Pagan Pride Day, of course. (This Saturday, September 11 at 10:30 AM to 6:30/7 PM or so at St. Nick’s Grove, . . . → Read More: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
What a day! I went to the committee meeting for the Erie County Democratic Party this morning, which went pretty well. The Chair was kind enough to note my birthday, and there were 2 other birthdays in the room. The meeting was quite productive. I then went home and posted some upcoming events, including . . . → Read More: A busy birthday
There have been some emails flying back and forth for the UNCLE board. Our secretary had a slight misspelling for the last name of our current president AKA Hot Straight Rich, which led to him being declared Lord High Cornhole. (His last name is sort of similar, but some letters crept it and one . . . → Read More: Assorted typos and silliness
One of the board members for the United NeoPagan Council of Lake Erie unexpectedly died last week. She was a wonderful and kind person, and had been tremendously helpful at last year’s Pagan Pride Day. I went to the viewing for her funeral on Friday when I got out of work.

I probably spent way too much time on geek stuff today, and figured it would be good to leave the house and interact with other human beings. (Call me crazy.) John and Paula were going to Greek Fest with Paula’s parents and her sister/brother-in-law. Lisa and Dom also showed up. So, I headed over . . . → Read More: Hanging out at Greek Fest
I had a lovely time at the Stonewall Celebration at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Erie today. When I walked in, I saw my friend Laurie. There was a basket next to her with a pineapple, bananas and that sort of thing. "Here," she said. "I can move the basket of exotic fruit." "So . . . → Read More: Stonewall Celebration at the UU
