I wish I could say I was busy doing more important things than honing my writing skills and networking online, but truth of the matter is I really wasn’t. Sure there’s school but for whatever reason my course load is as academically rigorous as a Speak & Spell. Rather I’ve occupied myself with courting a boy (omg, I wish you the best, I’m so happy for you, etc etc) who, as it turns out wants nothing more than my friendship (aw, c’est la vie, fuck that asshole, etc etc). I’m a popular guy; everyone wants to be my friend.
Tuesday was sort of an election day across these great United States. Virginia got a raging hardon for the GOP, Michael Bloomberg got reelected by a narrow margin despite what the mainstream media called “intense distaste” for his running for a third term, and I forgot to vote. I wouldn’t have had time anyway (Tuesday was a bad day). But notably, and as far as I’m concerned expectedly, the good people of the great state of Maine voted to overturn a law giving same sex couples the right to marry (wtf, this is shocking, we’ll get them next time, etc etc). You know it’s a problem when the last couple words of that sentence start to sound routine. But again, I expected it. Yes it’s a New England state but typically when people hear those words they think liberal bastions like Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Maine is kind of forgotten; it might as well be part of Canada. Maybe then they would have kept equality on the books.
However, in spite of all the bullshit, I saw Avenue Q last night and it was incredible.
