Nothing Much

Isn't this wonderful?.....
I had my hair cut yesterday from my gay hairdresser, Mark. As I was getting shampooed, another hairdresser announced, "Happy Anniversary" to Mark. Turns out he and his partner have been together THIRTY years. I think that's a heck of an achievement! Mark's eyes sparkled as he spoke about his mate and how they met on Valentine's Day. Doesn't that make you just want to thumb your nose at anyone who thinks we "can't" or "shouldn't" marry?

Karen and I got our shower invitations (the picture has been modified to exclude our last name and address and such). Neither one of us has had any kind of shower before. We've been kind of tickled at how excited we are. It's been fun to hand out and mail the invitations.

Hopefully I'll beat the head cold that's been plaguing me for a week in time for us to go to our PLOP event this Sunday. Cheers for now.

The whole same-sex marriage issue makes me so angry that I can't even begin to comment on it. Yeah, I know, I'm straight, so it's not really my fight. But, this isn't about the bible or what "God" thinks. It's about a bunch of closed-minded individuals who damn anyone who doesn't fit their mold. Even if I can legally marry, I'm still destined for Hell in their eyes for other reasons. *sigh* Anyhow, thank you for posting Mark's (and yours and Karen's) story! I hope more people read it and open their eyes.

How exciting about the shower! I've never had one either,but I love hearing all about them.

Feel better soon! being sick in the third trimester is the worst.

How amazing. Good for them.
I know it's stereotypical to think that only lesbians can have long term committed relationships, but that seems to be the way everyone thinks. I loved that story. Thanks for sharing.
