Still happy with the Supreme Court (how odd)

I'm still thinking about the decision and I'm still almost not believing it.

Even though sodomy laws are rarely enforced as such, there are so many things that could change based on this ruling. One thing in particular that comes to my mind are child custody battles. I have read about so many cases in which a couple is battling for custody over a child and the gay parents gets hit with the ol' "Can't put this kid with THEM because THEY violate the sodomy law and are therefore criminals" crap. It's like, well, jeez, if that's the friggin' unjust law that exists, guess they WERE guilty (supposing they were having sex in some "unauthorized" configuration)...

Speaking of, read an article about the U.S. birth rate going down and births among unmarried moms being like 30 percent. Now one thing I am very curious about if of that unmarried portion, how many women are just, well, unmarried even though they might in fact not be alone. I'm not saying there aren't a lot of women having kids on their own, either by choice or death or being ditched, but what about couple who just aren't married? My mind was originally thinking about lesbian couples (who probably make up some small portion of the 30 percent) but now I'm thinking that just in general, I wonder how useful that stat is, since it's held up as so important. I mean, wouldn't it also be true that there are women who are "married" whose husbands are complete deadbeats? Or abusive? When you pick away at statistics...

My Job

To my delight, I actually found an article that describes what I do for a living. "Webmaster" supposedly went "out" as a title years ago but that's what I've bee since I started. I'm not just a designer or a programmer or a marketing person or a tech support hack or a content developer -- I'm all of them. Whee! Anyway, I think I will link this article to my web site to explain to my customer what they're hiring me to do!

Help, I am STILL drunk

I had a chocolate martini (and a wee little glass of chilled raspberry sake) THREE hours ago and I am still incomprehensibly drunk, I swear almost about as drunk as I've even been. That happy hour my neighborhood had at Chin Chin was just ugh, too much. $5 martinis... dangerous. I wasn't dancing on tables, more like sliding under one while talking realllly loud. Actually I'm a good drunk. And I can still type! Whoo hoo! Jeez. Never should drink w/o having dinner first. No. I ate afterward, at Caleb's, and it made it a little better but jeez. Three hours later. That martina was like 5 drinks worth of alcohol. Unreal. Ugh. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooood though. He he. Considering I haven't barely had anything to drink since visiting Storm (when I drank 3 months' work in a week), doing well I guess!

What States Have You Visited, Pt. 1

Poll #150833 US States

Today I overhead somebody talking about travel and I was curious where people had been / lived, at least in the United States. This poll is just to see what states you all have visited or lived in. For "visited" I think we should exclude things like "Oh, well, I had a 2 hr. stopover at the airport" or you drove through the state in the middle of the night. You know what I mean by "you were there," right? Anyway, just check 'em off. I can tell you now, all my states except MN and IL are east of the Missisippi (er, well, or on it like LA) but anyway... He he. Happy voting, polling, whatever. (I am drunk, don't ask why I am even attemting this).
