I was sitting outside the cafe on my lunch break, talking to one of the other mall employees about the Pride Parade and how sad I am that I don't get to participate this year. A passerby (who turned out to be of the Homosexuality Should Be Criminalized camp - gotta love Bellevue) promptly informed me that I was going to hell, and that we liberals were domestic terrorists who ought to be expelled from the country.

I just stared for a minute and then walked away without another word because I was still in uniform and there was no way that was gonna end well.

But the more I thought about it, the happier it made me. It's a hell of a compliment. If you see me as a threat to your Ideal Nation of empty tradition, religious intolerance, homophobia and stifling elitism? GOOD. I must be doing something right.
Found the most amazing wall clock (second picture for size scale) buried under a pile of tripe on a clearance shelf at Target. I know it doesn't look like much right now but I have Plans - I am going to steampunk the hell out of this thing.

The clock faces themselves provide perfect canvases for decoration. I think I might cover the supporting wires with brass adhesive foil tape, to add some color and make the black clocks stand out a bit more. Instead of cities I'm going to label them PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE - or possibly LAST WEEK, TODAY and NEXT YEAR. Although all three clocks work I'm only going to put a battery in the middle clock so it'll look like the other two can be reset at will for time-travel destinations.

And while we're on the subject of science, did anyone else see this? 16-year-old decomposes plastic in three months, provides (potential) solution for a major environmental issue.
