Louisiana, Texas governors vow to fight Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage while others pledge to comply

What the hell, Lousiana and Texas?!? Are you really that blinkin' stupid on equal rights? Your religion really shouldn't be standing in the way of recgonizing the basic fact that we're all human and deserve the same rights.

Marriage Equality

It's about damn time.

Heteros can't deny rights to those who are just as human based entirely on who you happen to love, and the SCOTUS decision today just proves that. We've waited too many years, and fought too damn hard for our rights to be acknowledged, and I'm glad we didn't have to wait any longer.

And in closing, remember this:

Mom update

She made it through surgery alright on Thursday. She's still sore, and tiring easily, but slowly getting better. Her doc told her not to lift more than 10 pounds for a bit, so she'll be dependent on me/arsehat to lift the heavier stuff around the house til she goes back to work in about seven days or so. Even then, she'll have to have her customers and baggers manhandle the heavier things for her for a few days, probably.

On the knitting front

Got the worry blanket done for her in time for the surgery. She still wants a bit more added to it, so I'll be working on that after I get a couple other projects done. I've got two other active projects on the needles for her: one's a wideish cabled scarf in aran colored Loops and Thread yarn, and the other's another wideish ribbed scarf in Premier Cotton Fair Multi. I've got a stealth yoke sweater on the needles for me as well. Don't remember right off hand what yarn I'm using for that, but it's a really bright white. I'll have pictures up next time I post something other than Youtube videos.

Anyway, that's all for now. Catch ya later!

Pay it Forward!

This. Just... What he says. I've had it happen to me once or twice, done it when I could, and it really does brighten up your day, both the person doing it, and the person on the receiving end. It really doesn't have to be a big thing, it could be as simple as helping someone get something off a shelf they can't reach, or if they're short a couple cents, help them out. Even lending a shoulder if someone's having a bad day. Something.

Anyway. Pay it forward.
