The winning streak had to end sometime. I found out this morning that my rowing for the rest of the season is F.U.C.K.E.D. We were down to 4 senior women. One of them just quit. We can no longer fill the quad. We don't have a raceable crew for the regatta season now. And the club only owns 1 scull, and it is a shit scull. So us remaining 3 can't all use it. It also means that we can't go on training camp. No point. can't fill the fucking boat. And we just bought that brand new quad, too! It's only been used a dozen times! ARGH!!!!!
And just to add insult to injury, the bitch who quit is on a fucking ROWING SCHOLARSHIP. They're paying her to row!!! I'm going to try and broker a deal with my coach this afternoon to get the rest of the money that she would have received for the summer season.
Furthermore, my country is going to SHIT. I know it's just a symbolic gesture with no legal standing, but I'm concerned about the prescedent it sets. Right now it's just a gesture, but this could well be the snowflake that starts the avalanche. Jesus I hate Christians. These evangelical fuckwads preach hate and intolerance, wrap it up in a few selective quotes from a 2 thousand year old piece of LITERATURE, and use it to justify their ignorance and bigotry. I read this headline at the onion this morning, and I just couldn't laugh at it. It's just too close to the truth.
But wait, there's more! Those pesky "christians" have their fingers in loads of pies, including mine, apparently. I guess I no longer have a right to decide what goes on in my own uterus. (Sure, you say, you're not allowed to terminate an undesired pregnanacy. But surely you can avoid the whole fiasco with birth control? Nope, not actually.)
Fucking hell. As goddess is my witness, I am NEVER moving back to that god-awful country.
