random thoughts... some of them might be genius. then again, maybe not.
fitz... it seems like all the cool people back in the old days were fitz's. F. Scott Fitzgerald, Fitzwilliam Darcy... just to name a couple. i want to be a fitz too. fitzsarah... catchy right?? turns out, though, i can't. fitz, according to wikipedia, means "son of." the name or position of the father was added after the fitz. so its like an old-fashioned much cooler version of junior. seeing as im not a boy and therefore can't be son of anything, my hopes of being a fitz are now lying broken at my feet. or so one would think. lucky for me, though, i dont really care much about conventions. plus, i doubt people these days even know the meaning of fitz. so from now on, at least until i forget, i will be known as fitzsarah.
on a completely unrelated note, today was heath ledger's birthday. i really liked that dude. so in celebration of his birthday go watch one of his movies. he had some great ones. 10 things i hate about you, a knight's tale, casanova, brokeback mountain... i could watch these movies a million times and not get bored of them.
speaking of brokeback mountain, did you hear that iowa has recently legalized gay marriages?? of course there's now a whole bunch of protests about this. personally, i think that marriage should be between a man and a woman. but do i think gay marriages should be illegal?? not really... america is big on "serparation of church and state." well making gay marriages illegal is far from that. the only thing people have against gay marriages are their morals and religious beliefs embedded so firmly in their minds that they don't even realize it's religion theyre thinking of. so yeah, i don't personally believe in it, but those that do should be able to do what they want. it's not like they're hurting anyone. well, except for the fact that a lot of gay guys are so much awesomer than straight ones.
oscar wilde was gay. he was also an amazing writer. his works are chock full of witty satire and dry humor. i just finished rereading the picture of dorian gray, a novel that he wrote. really short, you should read it. it's all about pleasuring your senses at the expense of corrupting your soul. i think it would be kinda cool to have a picture that aged instead of me.
in dorian gray, there was this book he read that kind of aided in the downward spiral of his morals. books are amazing (i generally prefer fictional people to the ones that clutter my life) but they really can be influential. a lot of people don't realize that. probably because in this day and age a lot of people are illiterate morons who would rather watch a movie than read a book.
anyways, i have to go help my brother defeat elmer fudd. stupid video games.
