I am so relieved.

Moments after the announcement, our neighborhood resonated with cheers, whistles, car horns, and people banging on pots and pans.

Even though I know my Maryland vote didn't count for much, it's so nice to be on the winning team for once!
(Well, as close to the winning team as I can get. I voted for Hillary in the primary.)

Now, let's see if we can weasel ourselves out of this outrageous recession and debt.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for my California friends. No on prop 8!

From dmlou...

Copy this sentence into your livejournal if you're in a heterosexual marriage, and you don't want it "protected" by the bigots who think that gay marriage hurts it somehow.

On my drive to work today, my exhaust broke. Again. (In a new place, though. Jason's welds were wonderful for the old break.) I drove through DC dragging my muffler behind and parked at work. I shimmied under the car and lashed the sections of tailpipe together with bailing wire, which held up for the drive back to Baltimore tonight.

And, of course, the air conditioning doesn't work.
And the trunk could be more watertight.
And the back window doesn't really go all the way up.
And there is a small, slow oil leak.

I think it's time for a new car. The lack air conditioning is going to kill me.

If I'm going to have a semi-hoopty car with no air conditioning, than it should be something with style like....


or



instead of



So, what should I get? I commute a lot, so gas mileage is important, and I feel the need to haul lots of stuff around, so I'd prefer a small SUV or a hatchback. A Prius would be perfect....except it costs a lot of money. I also like the Toyota Rav4. I refuse to buy new--used only. Does anyone have suggestions of vehicles I might like for storage capacity and gas mileage??

chronoxaos and I have received many wonderful matching kitchen items since our wedding last month, which have taken residence in our cabinets. Our old stuff has been evicted to the kitchen table and is looking for a new home!
Before I post all this stuff on Craigslist, I thought I'd check in with you lot to see if any one is in need of kitchen accoutrement.
Everything is in excellent shape, just mismatched. Prices are listed, but really, I just want it gone, so gimme your best offer on... all this stuffCollapse )

So, I totally neglected to post here in the lead-up to the wedding detailing all the preparations, so I hereby present the following truncated description of planning our wedding...Collapse )

Standby for future posts of the wedding day itself!
