I was at Walgreens buying my brother a birthday card. An elderly woman was also in the aisle. She said “can you believe they have wedding cards for two men and look even two women!”
But she then said “I’ve seen so many changes in my 80 years, it’s wonderful how things are moving forward.”
[internal tears of joy]
She then mentioned that she didn’t know any gay people but that everyone should be treated like they would want to be treated. I smiled and said “you know one now” and pointed at myself. She smiled, patted my shoulder and said “now I do”.
I’m not crying you’re crying

I’ve got a meeting with an advisor tomorrow morning. Then I work. After that, I’m heading up to Visalia for the Built to Spill concert at Cellar Door. I’m pretty excited; I’ve liked them since high school. Not so excited about driving home in the early morning hours and possibly working a shift Friday morning. But I’ll have Saturday to recuperate (somewhat! As the Beatles cover band I love is playing Saturday night; and, dammit, I’m going to that, too!). Wish me luck!

Being a humanist means trying to behave decently without expectation of rewards or punishment after you are dead.

I’ve been wanting to read this series for a while now. I love Kazu Kibuishi’s art and I’ve heard so many great things about Amulet!
Enjoy the ride!
I’m such a fan of this series. I’m rereading with my Odessie before the next comes out!
