Relieved

Sometime today I realized that my shoulders were no longer up around my ears and were in fact relaxed and down where they should be.

For, pretty much, the first time in eight years.

While there were some definite WTF? moments in the American election results last night (Proposition 8 of California passing, and little to no mention anywhere of how did women candidates do, um, hello?) overall I am most relieved.

So, so, relieved. I don't think I could have handled another four years of the same old same old.

Well, Lamda Legal and the ACLU are looking at ways that Prop 8 can be overturned in California. It's not totally hopeless.

Thalia I know exactly how you feel. I was on the verge of packing and thumbing it to Vancouver. Thank Goddess the nightmare is over!!!

P.S. Mike Nesmith was always my fave Monkee ~ great taste dear!

Pietra--Well, thank you for tagging me, but I'm going to skip it this time if that's all right as I just did one of the same not too long ago.

Urbanhellenistos--Yes I'd think that an amendment that specifically cancels out part of an earlier amendment while assuming it can coexist wouldn't work, legally. I hope the court there has a clue. Though, if it's the same court that decided that equal protection said gays and lesbians had to have the same right to marry as straights (which word I dislike, by the way, as it always makes me think gays and lesbians are "twisted"), I'd think it'd do all right. I hope so.

Beverly--Well I wanted to split for England or Scotland, myself, though Canada is a step towards that goal I guess. I really am unbelievably relieved. Every once in a while I think to myself, "Oh my God Obama is actually president-elect! For real!" and I just relax. Oh, it's so nice.

And why yes, I do have excellent taste, thank you. Damn but that boy is hot. Or was, back in 1966 anyway. Oh my. Er, anyhoo...
