Follow Friday – Love Thy Neighbor

10 Sep

I know it’s strange, but some people actually have to be reminded to love thy neighbor, even though it’s a basic tenet of their very own religion. Almost as if it was some sort of command. That came from God. But do you even need a higher power to spell it out for you? DON’T BE AN ASSHOLE, DUDE. In honor of this asshole’s dangerous, selfish, and ignorant plot, some are protesting his actions by taking time tomorrow to buy or read passages from the Quran. I’d like to protest by giving him no attention whatsoever on September 11th. “Thou shalt not feed thy Country’s trolls,” or something.  But because many people said wonderful things about it on twitter this week, I feel it bares mentioning here.

UPDATE: since writing this yesterday he has decided to call off his Quran-burning plot. Thank the baby Jesus and the baby Muhammad.

In better news today is the birthday of April, a girl close to my heart, who is part of my twitter zombie task force called ZAFT. I don’t remember what ZAFT stands for, but so far April’s in it because she can provide life-saving medical advice, Windsor Grace is in it because we need lovely, handmade post-apocalyptic jewlery to wear, and I’m in it because, well, I want to survive.  Happy Birthday, April!

    Just read that pastor won’t burn the Quran under one condition, which is PURE BULLSHITTERY.

  2. April (aka @lilpyrogirl) September 10, 2010 at 8:35 am #

    I am SOOOOO flattered!

    And #ZAFT was “Zombie Apocaplyse Fighting Team” (subheading: The National Guard of Awesome).

    We might even *almost* have t-shirts… It’ll be easier to recruit team members with t-shirts.

      I keep forgetting what the letters in ZAFT stand for, but I never forget my commitment to fighting zombies.

      It loves you back! Probably. Maybe. Sort of? Ok, look, it just wants to be friends.

    So, I’m watching the second season of True Blood on my iphone and I think we should recruit Jason Stackhouse. He’s a pretty amazing zombie fighter. And, happy birthday April!

    Did you feel that little earthquake that made you fly up about inch off the ground 5 times in a row? That was me on the other side of the world jumping up in down because I made it on FF! Now I’m doing that goofy early 90s un-tah un-tah un-tah, stir the pot dance thing. You won’t actually feel that because lameness doesn’t travel through the Earth’s core like triumphant jumping does.
