The Supremes.

Well said.

whiny baby

Goodbye, DOMA and Prop 8! In a move I can only imagine was a going away present for me, today the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act and essentially paved the way for marriage equality in California by removing a pesky (read: totally disgusting) piece of legislation called Proposition 8. This is a major win for everyone in the country who believes that personal prejudice or religious belief should not, and cannot, be legislated in the United States of America. I am proud to be on the right side of history. And now I get to attend the weddings of all of my friends!

However, not everyone is so pleased this morning. I made a mistake in reading the comment threads on articles celebrating the decisions and now I must share with you two of the most ridiculous arguments against the Supreme Court’s ruling:

1) “The…

200 ~ Make a Wish

This is beautiful. *Marion, thinking of you. Time to set a date for those frequent flyer miles. XOXO.*

Fairytale Epidemic

I thought I knew what trust was
I believed in the limit of friends
And in my darkest moment
You pulled me through til the end

With horrid thoughts that haunt me
The nightmares that plague me at night
You have shown me so much kindness
A breath of selfless light

When the tears would not stop falling
I asked God to help see me through
Thinking he would help me stop this pain
But instead he sent me you

The ‘How Stupid Some People Can Be’ Blog

As Bill Engvall would say…”There’s your sign!” Some of these are really funny, supremely honest, or just plain comedic. Please check out Shaun’s site for all kinds of honesty and hilarity. He’s got a fine sense of humor. =)

The social implications of a cookie.

Had to share this. Right now I REALLY want a piece of chocolate. There’s no reason to food shame.

Emily L. Hauser - In My Head

chocolate chip cookieJust once, when I happen to be in a group of women, I’d like to have a cookie without having to consider the social implications of having a cookie.

This happened to me just now — I was at the park at a little teacher-organized end-of-year gathering of kids, having a brief conversation with a small handful of women. One turned to the rest of us and said “I want a cookie. Does anyone else want a cookie?” and as one, the rest of us smiled and said no. The cookie-fetcher then said “Well, now I feel bad, I’ll be the only one taking a cookie!” and came back with an apple.

Now, I am a fan of apples and have nothing against them. Apples are a fine thing. And sometime I genuinely do not want a cookie.

But I have no idea if I wanted a cookie in that…

229 ~ Release

Fairytale Epidemic

When you spread your wings
You can’t see them shine
And how I’ve fallen for them
Each and every time

If only you could see
Just how beautiful you are
You’d finally understand
How you managed to set the bar

But butterfly I can’t keep you
Inside my jar of a heart
For no matter how many holes I poke
Your lungs will fall apart

So I will hesitantly lift this lid
To watch you flutter free
But know the door is always open
To the home you’ve made in me

You’ll always be a part of me
I’m part of you indefinitely

__r_e_b_i_r_t_h___by_soturbow-d4s43y2And we’ll linger on
Time can’t erase a feeling this strong

235 ~ Mother’s Day

This is beautiful.

I stayed quiet on Mother’s Day for many reasons. One, I lost my Mom almost five years ago. Two, I lost her exactly five months after losing my father. Losing one parent is hard enough, losing a parent you were best friends with is like losing a part of yourself. I can talk about it on a one-on-one level most of the time, but in general, May is not a good month for me in terms of loss, so I decided keeping my mouth shut was best, lest I ruin someone else’s day with my emotions.

Hope everyone had a good celebration.
