So, a peace sign wreath is A SYMBOL OF SATAN? What the HELL? This just dumbfounds me. I guess anything that goes against their narrow beliefs and MAYBE questions the war is now satanic. I guess in that case I've been worshiping satan for a long time.
No, jerks, did you forget that peace is one of the central themes of Christmas? Listen to your Christmas carols! Peace on earth, goodwill to men? A peace sign wreath fits nicely with what the holiday has always symbolized to me. Kudos to the couple for sticking to their guns. I, too, would keep the thing up through the holidays and refuse to pay the fine. And then perhaps I would accuse a bitchy neighbor of worshiping satan who owned black cat or something equally ridiculous.
And what the hell happened to "love thy neighbor?"
Okay, yeah, I think this proves that I could NEVER live in one of those ridiculous subdivisions with the ridiculous rules about how one's house is supposed to look, what color the blinds are supposed to be, how nice your garden must be, etc. I'd be sure to get in trouble and make the neighbors hate me.
I didn't get the Google job, either... I thought everything went well, and I got one of those vague rejection letters in my e-mail late Saturday. I did reply and ask for a more concrete reason; I've always done that, and it's always been some sort of trite bullshit. I expected better from Google, but I guess this shows that they're no better than any other large company. I'm kind of pissed that I put so much energy into all the ridiculous things Google makes you do for weeks before you even interview only to have it all shot down.
Oh, erm, knitting?
I started my fourth pair of knucks. A friend's birthday is coming up.
