Miscellany

I lost track of who orig­i­nal­ly linked to what, so I can’t cred­it them prop­er­ly. But thank you to who­ev­er they all were, any­way! Filed under “anoth­er rea­son I’m proud to be a home­school­er”: Cal­i­for­nia court rules that pri­vate school can oust les­bian stu­dents. I do under­stand that it’s a pri­vate reli­gious school and that […]

Random Things Meme

Leah tagged me on Face­book to write 25 ran­dom things about myself, then Sam tagged me to come up with 16 ran­dom tid­bits. I’m not good at these things, but I’ll give it a try. I did­n’t go to kinder­garten but start­ed first grade when I was 5 because my moth­er thought she had to put […]

TotD: Emma Goldman on Love

Love, the strongest and deep­est ele­ment in all life, the har­bin­ger of hope, of joy, of ecsta­sy; love, the defi­er of all laws, of all con­ven­tions; love, the freest, the most pow­er­ful mold­er of human des­tiny; how can such an all-com­pelling force be syn­ony­mous with that poor lit­tle State and Church-begot­ten weed, mar­riage? Free love? […]

TotD: Carter Heyward on Love

Carter Hey­ward: Love, like truth and beau­ty, is con­crete. Love is not fun­da­men­tal­ly a sweet feel­ing; not, at heart, a mat­ter of sen­ti­ment, attach­ment, or being “drawn toward.” Love is active, effec­tive, a mat­ter of mak­ing rec­i­p­ro­cal and mutu­al­ly ben­e­fi­cial rela­tion with one’s friends and ene­mies. Love cre­ates right­eous­ness, or jus­tice, here on earth. To […]

What Can All Couples Learn From Same-Sex Marriages?

From Gay Unions Shed Light on Gen­der in Mar­riage A grow­ing body of evi­dence shows that same-sex cou­ples have a great deal to teach every­one else about mar­riage and rela­tion­ships. Most stud­ies show sur­pris­ing­ly few dif­fer­ences between com­mit­ted gay cou­ples and com­mit­ted straight cou­ples, but the dif­fer­ences that do emerge have shed light on the […]

SBQ: Sick of a WIP?

The Stitch­ing Blog­ger’s Ques­tion of the Week is: Do you ever get to a point work­ing on a project that you’ve had for so long, you start to won­der what pos­sessed you to start it in the first place? Of course! It has always hap­pened with pat­terns I chose to do for some­one else, though, rather than those […]

Date Night–Baby!

We had Chi­nese food togeth­er tonight, and played for a while. There was some ick, but I sus­pect­ed that it was com­ing. The hap­py part is that my char­ac­ter’s old­est son (fos­ter son, real­ly) baby was born. First grand­ba­by! There have been many babies born in the last “year” of the game, and there are […]
