Signing off for the Big Day

Hello, my little reader! I just wanted to let you know that The Kat and I are doing the commitment ceremony thing this weekend, so I'm taking tomorrow off work and I probably won't be on the interwebs again until Monday or Tuesday. We're having some out-of-town guests who are arriving tomorrow, so I really need to finish tidying up the Marsh House, doing some laundry (and hanging it around the living room), and the like.

Here are a few random thoughts kicking around my head today:

The media coverage has been fun, but those reporter's cameras add forty pounds, especially around the chin area.

I'm very proud of our statement about why we're participating in this event:

We decided to participate in this ceremony because our consciences demand that we not remain silent while same-sex couples are denied the basic legal protections afforded to opposite-sex couples. Through this ceremony, we declare that our love, caring, and respect for each other form an enduring commitment that should be recognized, protected, and celebrated. Having been together for over six years, raising a child with the support of wonderful members of our family of choice, we show that families headed by same-sex partners are already a reality. For our families and allies who are silenced in every community and every culture within America, we will stand and declare our love publicly on March 29th.
I'm getting a little bit nervous, but overall I'm feeling pretty happy and confident that the ceremony will be a lot of fun. I'm really looking forward to seeing The Kat in her wedding dress and combat boots! This is it, only the trim color is more like the background, a pale blue that matches the shirt I'm wearing under my silver-gray suit.

So--I hope BushCo doesn't bomb Iran over the weekend or anything.

Love ya!

I can't believe that I did not get to see this before you signed off!!

So so so much love to you both. We will want photographs next week.

Personally, I think we'd all be better off if we banned marriage for the straights, rather than curse the gays with the damn thing.

Oh well, some people are good at marriage, I suppose. All the best to you and yours, sweetie.

Fran is right as usual. Pictures are a must.

Hope you all have quite the groovy day and weekend! Make sure you guys have duct tape and canned goods, though, just in case we end up in another war.

Best wishes to both of you! (regarding the cameras...to paraphrase the late Kitty Carlisle Hart...since the camera adds 20 pounds, just avoid eating cameras!)

How lovely! You really should just move here to Canada and get all the benefits you are owed.

Best wishes to you!

Oh! All my best to you and Kat!

I hope you have a lovely day for it! (and I'll wish for an itchy rash or personal discomfort for Pastor Gary Dull.)

Fabulous! I hope you find time to sneak away to a broom closet, you sexy bitches.

Mazel Tov!
My poem for you:

D-Guz is getting hitched
Which in some ways is a bitch
Because I never got to meet her
And maybe scratch her itch!

Send me a pic please, to Picnic6@aol.com.

Much love,
Karen
