Did You Ever Know That You're My Hero?

We have been watching RuPaul's Drag Race. It's one of my favorite shows. Anyway, on this season there is a performer who told everyone she is HIV+. All the other queens started telling her she was so brave and noble and blah blah blah. Contestants have revealed their status in the past as well. Anyway, so here's the thing. You are not a hero, you're not noble, you're not a special snowflake because you are HIV+. You had unsafe sex and got infected. Period. There is too much education out there for anyone to pretend like that don't know how the disease is passed. You're not a victim you are an active participant. There is no reason to put this person on a pedestal because he got HIV. I understand that HIV can be a manageable disease today which is great but guess what, that makes it even less special.

Can you imagine? I have high cholesterol which is something that can kill me over time. Can you imagine if I went around "revealing" that and expecting people to tell me how brave I am and how strong I must be to tell everyone? No, bitch, it's just something I deal with and if I don't take my little pill every day then I will have a heart attack and die. Period.

Ugh...it's so frustrating. Please note I am not lumping in people who are raped or who contract the disease some other way so don't get it twisted. I AM including people who say that the other person didn't tell them because it's one's own responsibility to stay safe no matter what.

Anyway...that is all. :-) Go back to enjoying your Friday.

Monday biggotry

So this Morning one coworker referred to one of my customers as a "prissy faggot." Needless to say my jaw hit the floor. So I said "if he was black would you call him an uppity nigger?" He was taken aback. He started to backtrack and I told him he was being completely inappropriate. So later I am out visiting a business client for a loan application when she busts out the "n" word prolly a dozen times during our appointment. I didn't know what to do. My instinct was to wall out but I didn't and now I feel bad. This was all followed up by a story on NPR about the Sen from Alabama who questioned Judge Sotomayor on her pro-Latino slant whom they said was rejected from a post because of verbally supporting the KKK. What a fun world in which to live.

LJ Poll - Please Participate :-) It's for science...well, for my MBA

OK, I am writing a competitive analysis with a new instant coffee product as my target product. I have some questions for you.

In thinking about instant coffee only (not beans or something you would brew; the kind you can mix with hot water to make a cup of coffee) please answer the following:

Poll #1412207 Coffee Quiz
This poll is closed.

Name the first company that comes to mind in this category.

Name the company from which you would prefer to buy this product.

On a per serving basis, how much are you willing to pay for instant coffee?

$0 - .25cents
6(54.5%)
.26cents to .50cents
3(27.3%)
.51center to .75cents
2(18.2%)
.76cents to $1
0(0.0%)
more than $1
0(0.0%)

How important is flavor/taste versus cost? (I.e., 1 would mean you don't really care, 10 would mean you will pay more for a better product)

Voted

There were a couple hundred people at the polling place when we arrived at 5:30AM. Once the poll opened at 6AM the line moved pretty fast. There were a few crazy people there but all-on-all things went smoothly. We used an electronic voting machine so of course I had to check and re-check my ballot to make sure it was correct. iamglory and my roommate both voted write-in for Kaba for school board. We thought it would be funny if she was elected. Anyway... don't forget Starbucks is giving free coffee to those who vote!!!!! YAY!!
