Undermining the Morals of Society

A year ago today marriage for same-sex couples was legal in California, and on a bright, clear, beautiful October morning, I said "I Do" in front of a justice in the old Orange County Courthouse to my partner of 20+ years. Less than a month later this right was changed for others who hadn't jumped to the altar as we did; new lawsuits are being brought against Prop 8, and someday all the laws may change and, perhaps, "equality" will mean something. In the meantime, I have a marriage license from the State of California.

And now, I also have a stomach full of really nommy sushi, a killer Mai Tai, and am waiting until I have a little space to have some of the pumpkin bread pudding we got today at CostCo. Mmmmmmm.

I finally got around to looking at my flist manager, and noticed several folks have friended me lately -- thanks, and welcome! I have friended you back.

We're making some progress on making the office into a real room. Also cleaned the living room. Did some little shopping, got some stuff at Costco, a new tablecloth at Tuesday Morning, and made a quick trip to Trader Joe's. And yes, a cozy romantic evening for me and my lovely wife is lazing around on the sofa in our jammies with our computers. (Well, it HAS been 20+ years.)

We broke down and turned the air conditioner back on. It's been 100 degrees the last two days. While it's snowing in other places. Yeeg.

A goodly part of the day has been spent also cleaning up after a sad, sick, incontinent cat. Poor Cuervo. Poor us. Then the toilet backed up, too. But on the whole, a pretty good day.

Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!

Pumpkin bread pudding + homemade hard sauce = YUM.

OMG! Pumpkin bread pudding? Just when I thought my favorite dessert couldn't get any better... But more importantly:

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! As I told your lovely wife, I both can't believe it's been a whole year and can't believe it's been only a year.

It is SOOO good! (What disturbs me is the box claimed there were 20 servings... I can see maybe eight, ten tops... I obviously cut slices WAY too big! :D )

Thanks!!

Poor Cuervo. All night long (I didn't dare go to the bathroom without turning on the light... and good thing, too. Ew).

Thanks!!

Thanks!!!

Yes, it's horribly hot today again, as it was yesterday. We had a couple weeks of reasonable (for October) temps in the 80's and low 90's, but suddenly it got hot again. (Although the weatherfolks assure us that it's only going to be a record if it tops 100 AFTER October 23, so it could be worse).

Poor kitty. We know he's not too much longer for this world, so in the meantime... ew. (He was FIV-positive when we got him, and he was fine for a long time, but now he probably has what passes for full-on AIDS in kitty cats, and is going through the wasting phase of the disease.)

(When he was strong he used to sit on our shoulders like this.)

I still miss Kojiki, who we lost in 2001.
