WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it.

Catch-22 and Senate Blocks Anti-Gay Marriage Vote
OOOOH, this is pretty fun! That is pretty much me, yeah. Maybe I should read that book. Perpetually Untenable Situations. I like that. That pretty much sums it up. I should put that on a t-shirt. I'd put it on a hat if I wore a hat more often.
I got that over at Onewetleg's place... she's Orwell's Animal Farm. That is funny. Watch out for them pigs! (or weenies with wedding rings!)
WAAAAHH!!!! "Republicans couldn't fine enough support to keep the debate alive"!!! they just said on the "Constitutional Amendment to Block Gay Marriage"... they are calling it a "Weapon of Mass Destraction"... Bush's calling for the Senate vote now. A RESOUNDING DEFEAT!! They couldn't get enough Republicans even to support the bill in order to have a vote. So it isn't even on the agenda to be voted on.
Oh I am so thankful... it just seemed like the anti-gays were so vocal and public. Yay! The States haven't fallen into some Margaret Atwood prophetic novel yet! Yay!
And on the same vein, Yukon has just been ordered to change it's definition of marriage... the old one was "wrong and discriminatory" according to a Yukon Supreme Court Judge... they become the fourth Canadian province to allow gay marriage (the others are Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia) ... at least the Globe and Mail calls it a province... it is actually a "territory". Very cool anyhews. All is well on the anti-discrimination front for the moment.
OK, I'm going to go and find something to eat... yes, salad... and maybe then more salad... eventually the organic veggies box will get a bit wilder. Though we do have a few other goodies this week... I'll report later. hunger beckons me towards the kitchen.
