Corn, sodomy, and the ring

31 August 2007 | family, gay, gay marriage, lesbian, queer | No Comments

From Caryl’s post I learned that Iowa courts have moved in favor of same-sex marriage. Woo! I’m starting to lose track of what states in the US allow what kind of partnerships. Obviously Wikipedia can be trusted 100% (…), so one can look there, and now’s a good time to point out all the federal […]

Heat wave

31 August 2007 | san francisco, weather | No Comments

When you ask someone to come up with a list of things they love about San Francisco, the weather usually comes up. With good reason: it’s usually mild while still enjoying plenty of light (if you’re on the east side of the city, granted), the winters are more wet than frigid, making the local flora […]

20 August 2007 | mornings | No Comments

Despite some sort of malaise the night before involving dehydration and/or a fever and/or a caffeine withdrawl headache, and sleeping in this morning, I managed to go from bed to ready to leave this morning in 30 minutes. Normally this takes me an hour because I’m just that slow in the morning. I even flossed, […]

11 August 2007 | movie reviews, Neil Gaiman, Stardust | 3 Comments

As can be expected from Neil Gaiman, this movie is, in many ways, a classic fairytale. Everything wraps up neatly in the end; most good people get happy endings, bad people get what’s coming to them. It’s funny and cute and the special effects are wonderful. That’s perhaps why you should go see it if […]

Eight things a meme compelled me to reveal

10 August 2007 | memes, personal trivia | 1 Comment

Normally I don’t do these things. (Ms. Jen probably owes me a sock in the arm for not following the one she tagged me for last time.) I got tagged by George and, I dunno, maybe it’s the fact that I miss some of the questions-of-the-day from Vox. So I’m supposed to quote some things […]

New elements in HTML 5 Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) 5 introduces new elements to HTML for the first time since the last millennium. It’s not that bad at all, but adoption by webdevs will depend on browsers’ ability to support them and let them be styled with CSS. (tags: html semantics webdev)

I’m sure some people would be flattered

6 August 2007 | personals, purposefully missed connections, queer | 3 Comments

It’s not a situation I would have anticipated: On a personals site, someone stating in his profile that his band is going on tour soon (my town: later this month) and that he’d need places to stay, shot me a message saying I “seem like a rad guy.” Also, according to his profile, he’s not […]
