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.
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.
A brilliant Flash-based video demonstrating why our image of Beauty is so distorted in this culture — A time-lapsed film of a model going through make-up, hair and then Photoshopping, creating a billboard which bears no resemblance at all to the real woman who sat for the photo.
