How is it that I haven’t seen anyone comment on the double date, Let’s Take It Slow song (no idea if that’s the name) and, most importantly, Artie’s date’s reactions through it all.  I couldn’t stop laughing through the whole thing.

It was so completely, “I’m on this date that I thought would be fun and then the guy got all weird and now we’re suddenly with these other people I’ve never met and he’s singing a duet with this other woman and this song is really inappropriate and the other singer’s boyfriend is acting like this is totally normal and I’m trying to act cool so I don’t send him over the edge but oh my god get me the hell out of here.”

In the “Welcome” at church this morning, our associate pastor noted the big news here in Michigan, and that in our county, there were 70-some marriages for same-sex couples (both licenses and ceremonies, I gathered - ours was one of four counties that opened their clerk’s offices on Saturday for the occasion.)  He then looked up and said, “Raise your hand if you’re now married!”

There were at least two different couples I spotted with hands raised (and there may be more at the late service).  The cheering for them went on for a few minutes, literally.  I spoke briefly with one of the newlyweds after the service, and she said that our church’s senior pastor was present and performed their ceremony — and about nine more!

Yes, there’s a judicial stay right now.  But even a staunch pessimist likes me knows it’s only temporary. There’s no legally valid argument against marriage equality, and the precedents in favor of it are building higher and higher.  And in the meantime, I feel such joy for the couples who did get married yesterday, legally and officially.  Congratulations to them.  The delays for the rest of Michigan will be worked out, and the rest of the country will arrive, and it will be sooner rather than later.

where has this been my whole life!?

This looks heavy; like it would hit the bottom of your stomach and keep going after ripping a hole in the lining.

I mean, that’s cool and all, but… why would I want to waste my ice cream like this? Has anybody made this and found it so delicious that they thought, “man, I’m so glad I don’t have my ice cream anymore”?

I’m gonna guess no.

EXACTLY! 

I was just thinking “You know what would make this even better? If it was still ice cream.” 

I was assuming it was like those rum cake recipes where it calls for a whole bottle of rum, and none of the rum ever actually makes it into the cake because you drink the whole thing as you’re cooking.

Ice Dancing Music

I’m watching the recorded ice dancing from earlier today right now.  I know we’re all super excited about Chris Colfer’s version of Le Jazz Hot being used for the German ice dancing team, but the third or so group to go is from France, where the guy is actually Welsh.  They’re dancing to a duet of “De-Lovely.” 

Maybe I’m totally imagining things, but that really, really, really sounds like John Barrowman singing.  And he’s done a lot of Cole Porter, which makes me assume it is John Barrowman singing.  Why has no one mentioned this?
