Next time someone asks me where I live, my answer will be” I live in H8fornia.”

I came up with the word this morning as I was listening to NPR waiting for the H8fornia Suprime Court to further take away people’s civil rights. But the small victory is that at least those who got married will remain married.

Woman sits on man’s lap while chatting together for a whole 1 minute.

Woman: “OK I am getting up, your breath smells life farty cabbage.”

As woman gets up man says under his breath although loud enough to be heard: “I should make cabbage more often.”

Woman: “Punk. I am going to blog about that.”

This morning the orginal post that I published last night was met with a somewhat sarcastic “Nice post.” I was told that my “tone analysis” was way off base and it was not at all accurate. Well, that’s why I came up with the genius TONE analysis.  So I encouraged J to write his own version of how things took place to post along with mine.

So below is J’s version:

Standing in the dairy aisle at Costco:

Woman: “They don’t have mozzarella. We can just use the other cheese we have at home.”

Man: “Yeah we can go through the ones we have and get it next time we are here. We have plenty of cheese at home anyway. Is that OK?”

Woman: “Sounds good. Yeah we do have enough at home.”

Half hour later at TJ’s while checking out:

Woman: “You got Mozzarella.”

Man: “Yeah, I’ve got it covered. I remembered.” Said with great pride with much emphasis on the “I” parts while pointing to self. Actual thoughts: ‘See I pay attention to what you say and try to remember what we are shopping for.’

Woman: “I just thought we were gonna go through the ones we had at home.”

Man: “Oh.” Pause.  “That’s right.” Actual thought: ‘DOH!!  It looks like I don’t pay attention or remember what we are shopping for. ‘

Woman: “I am so glad YOU had it all covered!” Chuckles. Giggles.

Woman: “I just thought we were gonna go through the ones we had at home.”

Man: “Oh.” Pause.  “That’s right.” Tone analysis: crap, I thought I had her. God dang it.

Woman: “I am so glad YOU had it all covered!” Chuckles. Giggles. Thinks to self: this is what happens when men think they have it all under control.

I was listening to NPR this evening and they were talking about prop 8. It was an interesting argument that I had not heard of before. I knew that mostly Hispanics and African-Americans voted yes on prop 8, but I had not heard about it being broken down this way.

If indeed the accusations are true, then I would really like to know where all the money donated to NO on Prop 8 went. I especially find it sad that she received information in the mail to vote yes on the prop 8 frequently, whereas she did not once receive anything encouraging people in her neighborhood to vote no. To think about it, to the best of our knowledge, we did not receive info about neither here in San Peepee.

The interview was done by Talk of the Nation and you can listen and read about it here.

Op-Ed: Why Black Voters Didn’t Fight Prop. 8

Talk of the Nation, November 10, 2008 · Writer Jasmyne Cannick argues that black voters did not join the fight against California’s same-sex marriage ban because the white community failed to effectively communicate with the black community.

I just realized today that we have reached a little milestone here: 100 posts since Aglio & Olio first appeared in the Internet world. WOW for me, I didn’t think I would actually accomplish this, granted the majority of the posts are about Indi. It’s all good though, my mom gets to keep track of Indi’s growth from the other side of the planet and probably grow more anxious about meeting her. The poor dog is feared and she has yet to meet her maternal grandmother!

Anyway, something cool happened today. J and I went to pick up our marriage license at the LAX courthouse, which by the way, is a nice looking building right where the 405 and 105 meet.  In front of us there was a gay couple who were waiting for the same thing. I felt all warm and fuzzy inside when I saw the excitement on their face.  They only do civil ceremonies on Fridays, but apprently, in light of the elections they decided to add another day to allow those interested in getting married before the election. I thought that was cool — I am keeping my fingers crossed!
