It is now Day 3 of the 30 Days of Asexuality Challenge, and today I am to answer the following question How old were you when you realized you were asexual? What made you realize it?
I’ve never fully fit into the groups around me when it came to girls or boys, I always saw both as friends and nothing more. I never understood what made a girl more attractive to another girl or boy, or what have you it never made sense to me growing up. My mom use to say that I was just late that when I meet the person who was right for me that I’d know what my orientation truly was.
I started off at a young age by saying I was gender neutral when it came to an interest in others, which many took mean that I was bisexual and still to this day many it seems feel that way when I say I’m gender neutral of those I’m interested in.
It was in early 2000 that I first herd the term asexual itself being used, there was an article in the Toronto Star on AVEN a organization that was trying to promote and help those who are asexual, it from that article that got me thinking about my lack of interest in sex with either gender or attraction to either gender for that matter.
It was after joining AVEN that I actually started to use the term asexual itself, though like a lot of things old habits and the like still come up such as saying that sexually I’m gender neutral.
Well apparently Air Canada lost the legal action that was taken against them from a Disabled person who tried to use their services.
According to an article in the Toronto Star entitled “Airlines told to drop extra charges for disabled” according to the STAR “In a resounding victory for people with disabilities, the Canadian Transportation Agency has ruled that airlines can no longer charge them additional fares for personal caregivers or extra seating they may require on planes.”
According to an article in the Toronto Star entitled “CIBC sees $1.50/litre gas ‘soon’, according to the STAR “The widening demand-supply gap could push crude oil prices as high as US$150 a barrel by 2012, said CIBC World Markets chief economist Jeff Rubin, who in 2005 was among the first analysts to predict the $100-a-barrel oil price which materialized this month.”
I don’t know about you, but that to me is just wrong, on oh so many ways. I know in the US they are paying more for gas then we are, but still I don’t know about you but at 1.50 for gas I’d not be using my car much at all, aka cost prohibitive in the extreme (at least in this point in time it would be).
Oh well one can only hope that alternative forms of fuel are found and adopted before this happens or that alternative modes of transport which are just as good as the car are developed (and I don’t mean the TTC or the like since to me they are not efficient as they currently stand).
Well take care,
Sighs and growls at all the stuff that is happening with this election business that is driving many of us up the wall so to speak.
I don’t know about anyone else, but if you wish to follow what is going on you can read what has been written in the Toronto Star by its various reporters who are covering this deal to various degrees.
Sighs and growls big time at the TTC for what they are going to do and what they currently are doing for that matter.
In an article published in the Toronto Star today entitled “Pick your poison, invites TTC: Survey to ask whether riders would prefer cuts, taxes or higher fares” the author of the article talks about what the TTC is doing in regards to having to Cut back on its cost factors. Such as raising fairs 10 cents to 25 cents as in instead of 2.75 the cost would now be 2.85 or a full 3 dollars … once again making it that much harder for lower income people to use the service to get to and from work on an already tight budget.
Ack I actauly agree with Stockwell Day on something that he’s said in the news yesterday …. runnnnnnnnnn
There has been some rather upsetting deals happening of late with the US, and the most recent one to get on many Canadian nerves it does appear is over the American who has been exiled to Canada all because he has a Canadian wife and children, but is not a Canadian citizen.
In yesterdays online Toronto Star, there is an article entitled “Day wants sex offender out” and you know what? I actually agree with Day and other Canadians that I do NOT want the US dumping ppl such as that bloke here in Canada, he’s an American let him serve his time there! We don’t want him here, at least I know I don’t.
I do agree with Days statements “We don’t want to see Canada become a haven for pedophiles or anyone else committing a serious crime” “We don’t want U.S. courts getting the notion that we just take people here that they would have to put in jail.”
I say sent the bloke back and let him serve the jail time that he deserves to serve for his crime. I really do not care, if what he did according to his us lawer was just kissing a underage girl and touching her bust while she was clothed, he has been charged in the US as a sex offender and thus should not be here in Canada what so ever, he’s broken the law down there, thus should pay for what he’s dun. Just like anyone else who breaks the law Canadian or American or what have you.
Growls at the Canadian Government and their load of crap…
I know that a good number of children today are over weight and what, not because I live up the street from a public school (JK to 6) and I see the children and looking at them makes me wonder what the freak are their folks thinking, then again most of their folks have other ppl it seems to take care of their children, since they are to busy to have a family (sighs, I really do not get the mentality of one up men ship or the like).
Well yesterday was a LONG day it did feel, managed to get to sleep about 3 in the morning even though I went up to sleep about 2 it just wouldn’t come. Had to be up by 8 to get out of the house to go to a conference up near the airport with dad. Talk about operating of a bit of sleep deprivation, not fun at all.
Anyhow, yesterday was not bad calorie ways managed to take in 1,625 calories all told, which is good when all is said and dun and most of it was taken in around supper time – chuckles. For the first time in 5 years I actually had more then 1.5 oz of red meat … and of course paid the price for having 8 oz of the stuff, oh well it was tasty while it lasted and while I was eating it, i don’t regret eating it but at least I do know that my red meat allergy is still in full placement that its not really a sensitivity but a true allergy … sighs/growls.
Well as to the conference, attended a few presentations of which only two where of any interest to me and of which those two where actually helpful with the information they gave. One was a Photojournalism deal, which was presented by a Photojournalist from the Toronto Star, he spoke about his field and what not and all in all he was very informative since well he’s been in the field just over 20 years now.
The other interesting seminar was put on by Apple, for those who are interested in using iMovie, iDVD, iPhoto and of course the use of GarageBand within those deals. I actually have reopened iMovie and am playing around with it, chuckles. I haven’t played around with it since I had my old comp mostly because my old comp wasn’t fast enough to run iMovie with any great speed or the like as in freaking slow and so NOT great for working with it. But ack my new comp flies with iMovie so I might shortly have a movie posted here that I produced (or not still have to figure out what am going to do with it).
While at the conference dad and I ended up splitting a ham and cheese bun because the prices for food there was freaking high as in the bun we had cost just over 6 bucks for a single onion bun with ham and cheese on it – so NOT good at all.
Well thats it for now everyone, take care
Well it does appear that its official the crash that took place in Manhattan yesterday about 3pm claimed the life of former Blue Jay Cory Lidle as this plane crashed into a 50 story condo.
The Toronto Star has a few vid clips of the events after maths and articles on the player as well. But not much in the way of information on the crash, then again I think the American’s are still going though the process of learning what happened before full details will be issued.
I don’t know about others, but when my dad called me to tell me what had happened my first though was “here we go again – sigh” I wasn’t shocked or anything I was not surprised that it had happened, but after tuning into the TV … and learning that it wasn’t a tarrest deal, well that of-course was a pleasant surprise .. though the loss of life and the like is still not great, but like everything things could have always been worse then they where.
And I would really like to know how the world the plane got into the cities air space, since after 9/11 happened NY air space has been like totally revamped and beefed up, that something like that should not have taken place .. will be interesting to see what happens in the days to come over this.
Well it looks like its happening despite locals not being pleased with it, it does appear according to the Toronto Star in an article entitled “Airport flight takes off” that Porter Airlines will be flying out of the Toronto Island Airport shortly with an allowance of 10 flights a day, from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
I am actually 100% in agreement that I DO NOT want the Island Airport used more then it currently is used, those flights already as it is fly over my area of the city and I don’t like it now when they go over, but I accept that they do because they have been going over before I was born, but adding more then is already there, that I can fully object to since it was NOT in the original plans for the airport that I am aware of some 20+ years ago … the claim that the new plains are more quit is bull crap I’ve heard them they are no more quite then the flights that currently go over head.
