Mayor Adrian Fenty signed the bill for marriage equality in DC. Same sex couples should begin to marry in March! Woo hoo!!! Expect DC's budget deficit to go down in 2010 due to the marriage license fees and taxes on services such as catering, flowers, tux rentals, limo rentals, and hotel ballroom and guest room rentals. When will struggling states understand that marriage equality is good for residents AND good for the economy?
Earlier this week I got very excited when I found this postcard in our mailbox:
My childhood wish of being a "Nielson household" had come true! How great that Nielson would track my gay TV viewing and report it to whomever gets the Nielson results! However, my excitement was short-lived when I flipped the postcard over I saw that it was addressed to my neighbor.
While out Christmas shopping I couldn't resist buying myself 2 new pairs of shoes. I am so frugal when it comes to shopping for myself, but I won't buy something I don't love just "because its a deal". (Seriously, Spouse will sometimes buy something he doesn't really like just because he thinks its a crazy deal. I tell him its not a deal if he doesn't really like it and won't wear it.) But this time, it just worked out. I found 2 pairs of shoes that I really like a lot AND they were both 1/2 price.
I find it highly ironic that 2 of the most liberal states, CA and NY, have voted down marriage equality for gays, while conservative TX just elected its 1st gay mayor of Houston. Apparently they don't mind us doing their hair, creating their floral arrangements, styling their clothes, decorating their homes, and holding public office, just as long we can't have equal rights.
I lifted this from JavaJunkie's blog:
Just because you can be in constant contact with your friends doesn't mean you should. Inappropriate cell phone use is RUDE!
My buddy Jared provided me with this holiday gem:
Here's a little holiday tip for you: add 1 tsp of ground cinnamon to your coffee grounds before you brew, OR, use eggnog instead of creamer. Both of these will turn ordinary coffee into a special taste treat for the holidays.
Have a terrific weekend!!
