Another great day on Twitter:

And then j. brought me to tears of laughter with this horrible reminder:

I used to have a WordPress plugin that would archive my tweets daily, and i really miss that.  Putting this series here for posterity.

“White anarchist punk bros, GET THEE BEHIND ME” is my new rallying cry.

In a conversation about the similarity of the forests of New Zealand to the forests of the Pacific Northwest.

person:  “Have you seen the ‘Lord of the Rings’ movies?”

me:  [nods]

person:  “Okay, so you know the forests?”

me:  “Um, which one?”

person:  “You know, the forests.”

internal monologue:  No, which forests?  Do you mean Lothlorien?  The forests surrounding Rivendell?  The forest outside of Hobbiton where the Withywindle runs?  Or the forests of the Ents, perhaps??

externally:  [nods warily]

When Washington changed their marriage paperwork to accommodate same-sex marriage, they debated replacing “wife/husband” with “spouse a/spouse b”, “applicant 1 / applicant 2″, and other varieties.  I can’t recall off the top of my head what language they chose.

Last night Andy referred to me, out of long habit, as wife.  “Spouse, dear”, i reminded him.  “Spouse”.

Andy:  Oh right!

me:  Which do you want to be?  Spouse A, or Spouse B?

Andy:  It should be Spouse A and Spouse 1.  Which do you want to be?

me:  Spouse A — the one with the letter, of course.

Andy:  Oh good, i wanted to be Spouse 1.

I kind of love welcome mats.  I love when they have cats on them, when they’re silly, when they’re seasonal.  But i’ve refused to actually purchase a welcome mat for our place because we live in an apartment where, by the time you’ve walked across the carpeted halls and stairs of our building, you arrive at our door with pretty clean soles.

But, c’mon, this thing was half-off, so like i wasn’t going to buy it.

Every now and then i stop in my tracks in the middle of the day and wonder to myself, “Why am i not re-watching Back to the Future right this very second???” I’m not even sure that i’ve seen it since the ’80s. What is wrong with me?? Well, guess i have my plans for the weekend.

Andy:  “I think i love Zuko so much because his voice reminds me so much of yours sometimes.”
