Wedding Fun

E-Paul and I had a great time at the wedding. In addition to my blood relatives, my "family" also consists of three unrelated families that spend a lot of time together. As with any Brancato-Hill-Starr function, the party rocked. My nuclear family tends to dance all night at these kinds of events, and I discovered that my 2 year old nephew is no exception. Also typical at my family weddings - the groom's band sat in for a few songs.

According to e-paul, he doesn't know how to dance. I find this interesting since he used to go to raves every weekend.

About The Gay Marriage Thing

If I actually had the opportunity to speak to an opponent of gay marriage in an open discussion, I'd have these comments and questions.

The notion of marriage as only a heterosexual union is presumably based on the tenet that heterosexuality is more "natural." In other words, heterosexual relationships can produce offspring while homosexual unions cannot. So if the only marriages that are valid are those that are based on the possibility of procreation (in an overpopulated world), are marriages without children valid? What about men and women that have a physical ailment that does not allow them to procreate? Or those that are too old to procreate? Should their marriage be dissolved? In fact, aren't we just saying that the point of marriage is to have sex?

If anyone has insight, please comment.

Meet Haikuster Night At the Pink

The one and only haikuster will be in town this weekend, so I propose that we dedicate epeep Thursday night at the Pink to her. One more event to add to that busy calendar.

Gay Marriage Petition - Sign Now

In less than 48 hours, Congress will vote on an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would permanently deny marriage equality to same-sex couples. This is unprecedented -- never before has our Constitution been amended to take away anyone's rights. We've got to fight back.

Please sign on to our emergency petition to Congress to stop this divisive amendment at:

All Apologies

I have to apologize to the epeeps that called me last night. I was in serious sleep mode and didn't get back to anyone.

A special apology goes out to (e:haikuster) for being too incoherent to remember it was her birthday.

Happy Birthday Deidre! Looking forward to seeing you next week.

Friday Night Haps

There's a girls' dinner tonight with some people from work, one of which is Lisa Visco. She's from New Jersey, so she maintains that she can't be related to e-paul and e-mike. But I am certain they are long lost cousins. I need a digital camera so everyone can decide whether there is a resemblance.

Then it's off to the Mohawk Place dance party. All the epeeps should be there.

Those e-dudes are so cool - ice cold.

More on Steve

They were talking about Steve Kurtz on Democracy Now this morning. It's all completely out of control. The "dangerous chemicals" he had can be found in most chemistry sets and purchased legally on the internet. The poor guy couldn't even mourn for his wife. But you all know all this. It's just so disturbing.

On a more fun note, is anyone going to the Pink tonight?
