Ally and Friend

As a part of Blogging Against Disablism Day 2007 I want to talk about changes in this blog and in my life.

I started this blog as an ally, an activist. I had many things to say, to ask, to discuss about disability studies and rights and representations and policy. I had great intentions, as most bloggers do. I certainly did not run out of things to say, but at the end of last year my job got busier and the holiday season came quicker than I was ready for.

I was gearing back up to start again, meaning to talk about the DOJ report on the Lubbock State School (mentioned briefly here) and, of course, Ashley X. I even had some drafts going.

However, in the beginning of February, things changed. My close friend (let's call him C) sustained a severe traumatic brain injury. Suddenly disability was at once much more personal, and yet much more foreign.

On one hand, things that I once considered in theory were happening here and now. The brain damage was severe - the doctors said C would never wake up from his coma. If he did, he probably would be in a vegetative state for the rest of his life. End-of-life issues were now immediate issues. Even with hope and positive thinking, we didn't know if C would be able to move or communicate. Then what? What does it mean when people do not look or act or talk like us? Should "we" try to fix "them?"

On the other hand, I could not really think about disability issues and rights, something I am usually very passionate about. Living in the ICU, it's hard to imagine a "social model" of anything. I wanted to be able to use the things I knew about the world of disability - to have a framework to understand all of this (in case you are wondering, there is little understanding when it comes to brain injuries). But I couldn't seem to apply what I knew. Obviously I love C, regardless of ability, but I felt a crushing loss about his injury. Even though C was still here, I was grieving. Would he ever be the same C?

This is why I want to blog against ableism. I think ableism comes from ignorance and fear. In my experience, the acquisition of a disability has come with a lot of both. I hope we all can lessen these things in society. I hope by exploring and talking and learning we can provide a better framework for when disability becomes personal. There is not just a certain set of people that is affected by disability issues. It effects all of us. At any time anyone can become disabled, become a caregiver, a decision maker, a friend of someone with a disability.

Which is what I consider myself now, a friend. My blog title identifies me as an ally. Which used to mean someone who supports the rights and self-determination of people with disabilities without necessarily having a direct stake in the game (which is not to say I didn't have friends with disabilities). But now I also consider myself a friend. I have a more personal stake in this. Or, rather, I am more aware of my personal stake in these discussions.

(As a side note, C surprised all of the medical experts and woke up. Consciousness, movement, and communication are all continuing to improve. I am continuing to learn how to cope.)

With that, I'd like to reopen my blog.

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I want...no make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.


The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.

Hey guys,

I'm spending my time here for the children of Haiti.

This might be a bit off-topic but I believe there are a lot of smokers here on www.blogger.com. I decided to find a good vendor of e-smokes. I'm done with paying so much for tobacco cigarettes.A friend recommended [url=http://www.insanereleases.info/greensmokef.html]G Smoke[/url] According to their website this is how they described their product:
"Green Smoke offers supreme Electronic cigarettes with spendable cartridges that compose of the highest smoke volume in the industry. With a collection of flavors and nicotine levels, Green Smoke's™ patented technology offers convenience and exhibit performance that is unmatched. G Smoke products have been independently tested for safety."
I'm thinking of buying them. Anyone else have experience with this e-cigarette?

I phoned them first and asked every question I could think of and everything was answered to my satisfaction so I went ahead and made the purchase. Dispatch was surprisingly fast.

Really happy...

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
