So, as you could probably discern from my last post, I am a little depressed, so I decided to get happy by spreading the love....

From [ profile] geonncannon: The first FIVE people to respond to this post and mentioning this part will get something made by me! My choice. Just for YOU.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
- What I create will be just for you and no two will be alike.
- It'll be done at some point this year (2009). No guarantees when exactly since I want it to be a total surprise! (Plus, you know, I'm broke)
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be poetry. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? You have to repost this in your own LJ. We can all make stuff and make someone's day a little bit brighter!

Gay Rights

"Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?" - Ernest Gaines

We would like to know who really believes in gay rights on livejournal. There is no bribe of a miracle or anything like that. If you truly believe in gay rights, then repost this and title the post as "Gay Rights". If you don't believe in gay rights, then just ignore this. Thanks.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.

Note: I copied this post from [ profile] geonncannon, who made a very good point: 'I do hate having to call it "gay rights" though. Like they're not covered with the human rights we "normal" people are.'


I am pretty openly bi-sexual. I happen to be married (to a man) currently, and hate to think that if it was a woman that I was in love with/committed to that it would somehow be deemed less or other, because it does not seem so to me, or to those who's partner is of the same sex as themselves.

Contrary to popular belief, marriage is a social contract, not a religious one, or it could not be performed by so often by the local justice of the peace, rather than a minister. We have just given religious groups the right to appoint members of their clergy as legal witnesses to this contract, so that members of a faith may uphold their traditions and beliefs when 'marrying'.

I am myself an ordained minister, with this legal right granted to me, as was my friend who stood as high priest at my handfasting, which I wrote, and who signed my marriage license, which I filed with the courthouse.

In the state of Texas (at least when I lived there as a teenager) there still existed a law that a couple need only represent themselves to a third party as married (such as signing a hotel registry) to be so, and yet, my best friend's mother and her (female) partner of many years have none of the legal rights of this institution. Why is that fair?

Which is funny really, because the girl next door bit is so off-base about my personality, except that I am a bit of a homebody (ok, I'm mildly agoraphobic). On the other hand, the progressive bit sounds pretty accurate... oh, well, like I really expected accurate psychological assessment from a ten-question internet quiz. (twenty, maybe ;-)

80's music quiz

Being the obsessed 80's girl that I am, of course I had to take this quiz when I saw it on kaz's lj.

I was suprised, at even the ones I missed, I could hear in my head - just couldn't quite get the word, you know, which was funny, because the quiz is partly about singing along with the radio. It's a lot of fun, though, especially if you are a fan of 80's music - but it is waaaay long.

You're chocolate. You're the old soul type, people feel that they have known you their entire life. Many often open up to you for they view you as thoughtful and trustworthy. Although
people trust you, you have a hard time trusting
them. You prefer to keep your feelings bottled up inside, or display them very quietly. It is alright to open up every once in a while.
