Archive for the ‘1913 Marriage Law Repeal’ Category

Well the weekend is over and I am back indulging in my blogging.  I have a variety of things to cover in this posting.

 

As I had mentioned I went to a friends place for a birthday extravaganza, and as I hypothesized it was messy, and to answer your question I didn’t get to make out with patchouli and coffee guy (unfortunately).

 

It was your normal two days of partying…the booze was flowing, ample food, and good company, hours of corn-hole and over all a great time.  I did however get to share a room with patchouli guy.  I was pretty pleased with this serendipitous event.  I’ll tell you what he looks better and better every time I see him.  All I can think is that the women are really missing out on a GREAT guy, and here is this gay guy pining away for him.  But, I’ll tell you what I am glad I didn’t get drunk and try to have a heart to hear with him and convince him to…uumm how do you say…fool around with me, because that would have probably ended badly. 

 

He doesn’t even realize that he has a free pass with me.  I mean he could probably ask me to do whatever (within reason…I’m not that big of whore) and I’d do it, but oh well.  He’s missing out on me!

 

Here is a picture of me doing a keg stand…please enjoy…also I think my butt looks pretty good in this picture.  I don’t normally see that side of me…LOL.  Also, I’ve included a song for some fun, all I have to say is JESUS DOESN’T LOVE ME ANY MORE!

 

 

 

 

I’m excited about the next few weekends that will be coming up.  I think I might head home to visit the rentals next weekend, the weekend after that is Kathy Griffin, after that I will be spending 4 days with Lauren and her family at their cabin in NY, then I have a bachelor party to attend for a wedding I’m in, in October.  Needless to say I’m going to be a pretty busy boy for the month of August.

 

Next, yesterday I stopped in for a healthy dose of Coldstone ice-cream flirting.  I lucked out the ice-cream guy was there.  TIP TIP HORRAY!  So I order and make small talk with him then I fall into my old routine; I scribble my number down on the back of my receipt and hand it to him.  I did tell him he was a cute guy and that if he ever wanted to go out to “shoot me a text” or call.  I did break my routine because we were talking while I did it (which I ordinarily never do when leaving my number) and I’m pretty sure he knew what was happening…I didn’t do my usually scribble and run routine.  Nope I scribbled…delayed…then high tailed it out of Coldstone.  I end up getting a text from him later that night that read:

 

“Hey im really flattered but I just got out of a long relationship recently and im not even thinking of starting dating again”

 

Needless to say I’m a bit deflated.  He was really cute.  So I send him a quick text back:

 

“Thanks for the text I appreciate it.  My offer still stands if you decide otherwise later.  Good luck with being single.”

 

Sappy yes, but always polite….I do have to say he was much more polite and adult like compared to oh say coffee guy, so I can’t really complain.  The downside, I’ve put myself out there again and it kinda blew up again…the upside, no regrets (I at least tried), and no more Coldstone ice-cream…it was the 4th day eating it……blah.

 

Finally, on a great note, Massachusetts House voted to repeal the 1913 law that Mitt Romney resurrected to stop gays from coming to Massachusetts to marry.  There is one more “procedural vote in each chamber before being forwarded to the governor.”  Best of all, “Gov. Deval Patrick has said he will sign the bill.”  YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (link below)

What I especially like is the statements from Mitt Romney and the Massachusetts Family Institute. 

 

Mitty (that’s my new nick name for him) said if the repeal occurs Massachusetts will turn into the “Las Vegas of Gay Marriage.”  I want to be really upset about this statement but I can’t help but laugh at it.  I love a good slot machine…hahahahahaha.  Well Mitty, if everyone allowed for gay marriage perhaps you wouldn’t have to worry about the Las Vegas of Gay Marriage.  Talk about blowing it out of proportion…he’s really good at connecting gay marriage with “Sin City.”  Is it me or am I sensing undertones by connecting Sin City with gay marriage….I believe Mitty is saying gay marriage is sinful.  I don’t know I’m just reading between the lines.  As for Massachusetts Family Institute they are going for a more democratic statement.

 

“With that protective barrier removed, out-of-state same-sex couples who marry here will sue to seek recognition in their home states, creating a flood of costly lawsuits and further eroding the people’s right to define marriage democratically,” the Massachusetts Family Institute said in a statement.” 

 

Let me interpret what MFI is getting at…ahem…We hear at MFI believe that gay marriage is a sin.  Men should not sleep with men and the same goes for women.  We are going to try our hardest to stop out of state gays from marrying even though we were unable to stop gays from inside Massachusetts from marrying.  We will guise this fear by saying it will cause financial turmoil and many lawsuits in an attempt to make it sound like it would be the end of the world if gays were married.  We are also scared that because we are unable to stop gay marriage in Massachusetts other states will see that gay marriage isn’t really the abomination that we claim it is paving the way for equality for gays in the United States.  We are going to state that it “erod[es] the people’s right to define marriage democratically” because by democratically defining marriage we mean the church decides what is considered acceptable or unacceptable in terms of marriage.

 

PROPS TO MASSACHUSETTS PEOPLE AND THEIR LEGISLATION YOU ROCK MY WORLD.  Also, don’t forget all the gays can go to New York because you have rights there too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just another quick post for the week….A couple of months ago I blogged about gay marriage rights be accepted in NY and at the end I discussed the 1913 law that Mitt Romney used to stop gay men and women from marrying in Massachusetts. (the post is below)

Well there is great news today!!!!!!

The Massachusetts Senate passed repeal for the law.  This means that after a few more passes though the governance system in the state and gay men and women will be able to drive to marry in Massachusetts.  This is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!! (see the link below)

Not only does the repeal have the backing of some heavy leaders in the Senate, it passed with no objections!  Congrats to all the hardworking people who have made this legislation possible, you should be proud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Take that Mitt Romney, perhaps we should ban Mormons being married………..(I can’t believe I just wrote that thinking Mitt Romney will ever read my blog….and I’m sure I just angered about a gazillion Mormons because I know they are a cornerstone of my readers/views of my blog *Sammy shakes his head*)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

UUGGGHHH here is yet one more political picture….I’m a masochist for putting these haters up. 

 

Speaking of Mormons though I saw this article and it made me giggle a little. 

 

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25667782/?GT1=43001

 

The Mormons are in an uproar over this calender that has young Mormon men without their shirts off. 

 

 What is sad is there is Mormon that is trying to lighten up Mormon image and have some fun.  He is trying to break a stereotype and then bam he is excommunicated.  Does anyone else see something wrong with this picture.  The Mormons do not like to be considered cultish (even though non-Mormons cannot attend services…cultish, and don’t get me started on women in the Mormon cult Church) and they have this guy trying to PR the shit out of the Mormon Church and show that they aren’t cultish or stereotypical and then they go and do the stereotypical thing…EXCOMMUNICATE.  I’m just saying….this kinda makes the church look…stereotypical, uptight, stupid…but hey that’s me.

 

You know something about excommunication…it totally ups ones hottness factor.  I mean come on this guy did something so wrong he was excommunicated from a major religion.  I’d totally hit it, and the guy on the cover of the calender…I’m just saying.  I just hope he got to keep the money he made from the calender…why not keep the money if your church excommunicated you?

 

On a final more fun/gratuitous hottness note the Dark Knight premiered with much fanfare in NY.  I was browsing blogs and found this hottness of man.  So I am going to end the post with him.  He is oh so good looking!  Anyone know who he is and where I can order one?  Also, I hope I don’t get in trouble for using this photo…gulp!
