I has writted a drabble. I don't know that it's much, but it's only one hundred words:

Matt's hair fell over his forehead in a way that enchanted Cody, made her itch to run her fingers through it, rumple it more. He was always gorgeous, but sometimes he was just so cute it staggered her, made her wonder what she'd done to be so lucky. As though he felt her eyes, he turned and smiled at her, his dark brown eyes sparkling.

"What?" he asked.

Cody jumped at him, knowing he'd catch her. He was never put off by her weight. "I kinda love you, O'Connor," she said.

"I kinda love you, too, Cameron," was his response.



I know, it sucks, but at least I wrote something new. I haven't done that in a while.

I've actually been thinking about NaNo again this year. And it'll be a trick, considering I'll be literally out of the country for five days during November. But I CAN bring my computer on the cruise...

They're showing 80's country videos, a selection of songs I never really watched then, since I was a Classic Rock listener at the time (it was that era between my childhood love of country and my later rediscovery of the genre). It tells me two things: Country music was going through a period of AWESOME in the late 80's, and country artists were just as guilty of having 80's hair as the rock artists were. (OH MY GOD, Dwight was SO YOUNG!!! Streets of Bakersfield)

Of course, some dragons:

Adopt one today!

Adopt one today!

Adopt one today!

This time my two hatchlings did not die, but have grown up, and even the little green I got by accident (and did not abandon!) has grown into a pretty lady:


Adopt one today!
Cetaganda


And since nutmeg3 told me not to abandon her, I bet she likes the name I chose, too. *g*

I managed to drop five pounds last month, and then this week, daily, I put each one back on. And I'm not really sure how, since I made the gym four days, and I haven't been eating like a horse or anything - not eating perfectly, mind, but not splurging, either. Bodies are very strange to me... I think it's aware I wanted to drop a few pounds for the wedding. That may not happen...

Eeeee! Wedding!

Speaking of which, I was reading through some of the arguments in favor of Arizona's Proposition 102, which would write "marriage = man + woman only" into the Arizona Constitution. And at least two of the arguments actually said, basically, "it's NOT bigotry!" Um... if you have to say it, it kinda is, yeah. So sorry. Next. The "No on Prop 102" folks seem shy of funds, but I've already sent as much as I could afford - they don't even have bumper stickers or yard signs (they have PDF files you can download and print yourself). It worries me, that most of their campaigning is done in Tucson, which already skews a lot bluer than Phoenix, where I see a lot of "Keep Marriage Simple!" crap, but very little of the "let's not write bigotry into the state constitution, eh?" *fret, fret*

ANYWAY... the end of the weekend. How did that happen again?

Hee! I do indeed approve.

And...not bigotry? Wtf? I think that word does not mean what they thing it means, to paraphrase Inigo Montoya.

Hee!

I'll save Barrayar for a boy, provided no one else has used it (I note that dragons are like race horses; you can't use a name someone else already has).

Exactly so, I thought to myself...

Some quotes:

"While we make no discrimination against gay persons, this voice stands as the loudest voice trying to attack our sacred institution. Just as we would protest our homes and country against attack, we support this defense for the sacred family unit."

"Proposition 102 is important not only to protect children and families, but also to protect religious freedom. For, if the goverment demands moral approval for same-sex unions, then those who oppose such unons will be treated as bigots under the law."

And then of course all of them go on and on about "traditional marriage" and the "family unit," ignoring completely the fact that marriage as we understand it today is pretty much completely different from how it was only a few centuries ago, not "thousands of years," as some of these folks contend.

Ah, well. I can only hope the blueness of Tucson and Flagstaff can do something good here in our hopelessly red state.

That second quote in particular is full of the logic that is not. People scare me with their stupidity.

Oh, many of these arguments are full of the logic that is not. They do seem to honestly believe that if gay people marry, their own marriages are going to be put in jeopardy. The stupidity is staggering...

The first one came from Coy Johnson of Mesa; the other from Tiffany Arnett, also of Mesa. Some of these come from actual State Representatives; however, all of them appear to be from Mesa, which is where all the Mormons live. So who knows? Maybe the influence of Blue Tucson WILL have some effect...
