Party Reminder

Hey there, kids — just a friendly reminder that we’re having a party at our place on our Wedding night — we will have been all well-behaved and smiley and posing for photos and saying “thank you” and all that stuff during the afternoon’s ceremony and reception, so we want to dress comfortably, drink, dance and spend time with our friends that night!

If you can see this, you’re invited. No dress code. Bring booze and munchies if you want (although we may have leftovers from the reception — who knows?) Kick-off Time is any time after 8pm — this Saturday, October 21st.

Hope to see you there.

My Senator, The Fuckwit

Everyone’s favorite Opus Dei Senator, Sam Brownback (R – KS) has reached a new low. He’s holding up a federal judicial nomination because (*GASP*) the Judge in question once attended a commitment ceremony for a lesbian couple.

Brownback has said he wants to satisfy himself that the judge was not presiding over an “illegal marriage ceremony” — which is ridiculous, because there are no laws barring commitment ceremonies. As the above-linked Washington Post column states — Americans are entitled to gather, speak, celebrate and worship as they see fit. An administration official says that the Judge has told Mr. Brownback that she didn’t preside at the ceremony — she attended. What Brownback is doing is nothing more than declaring her unfit to serve because she has lesbian friends.

I’m sending the fuckwit an email. Maybe I’ll also remind Mr. Family Values of the time he hit on my ex-wife during a tour of the Sallie Mae facility here in Lawrence during the mid-90s.
