Happy Easter! I didn't dye these eggs, but they kinda look the most like the eggs I used to dye when I was a kid. The egg dyeing party I went to last night was really fun. It inspired me to dye some more today.

If BH and I got married, we'd just go to City Hall and invite some peeps out to a nice dinner afterward.

A sibling of mine spent an absurd sum on 2nd wedding. It had to be underwritten by my father and another sib. The first wedding was an elopement followed by a party here in NYC. I figure that sibling has spent close to 100k on this getting married stuff. (I hesitate to call it crap for fear of sounding cynical, jealous and/or rob-like.)

I'd hypothesize that there has to be lot of peer pressure or expectation for straight people - especially those with close group of friends with whom grew up with or went to college - to get hitched once the 1st ones in the group begin. And then for the creating children, etc. (house in burbs, ).
Was so much easier being part of hippie sub-culture,era and non-hetero.

I am heading back to court on May 3rd to enforce creation of trusts for the kids education. Ex refuses to cooperate, even though it is in the stipulation of divorce. At the time, my zillion dollar an hour lawyer told me "You can fight for money and probably win, in which case it will all go to the lawyers, or you can give it to the kids, and get this over with now (3 days into a trial and not one meaningful exchange of opinions)
I chose the kids, and now I still have to go back to court to get the kids their money.

Yes, it's true, Pete. There was tremendous pressure for my ex and I to get married. I was in my early 30s, and 'it was time'. I watched all my cousins get married, but somehow I could never 'see' myself doing it. I still can't really. I mean, I 'would' marry BH, but the cost, and politics of it just puts me off, and frankly, I just don't see the difference of our commitment to each other vs. married people. I'm sure someone will come on and tell me all about it, though. (Spare me, please, I've heard it all.)

I don't think so. He had some sort of family plan already for the kid, and just added me on. We got 'partnered' at 9am on a Monday. BH took the piece of paper to work and I was covered as of the date/time stamp on the papers.

rf, My accountant says it's 6 of one, half dozen of the other, given our current situation. And told me to take 'money/taxes' out of the equation, and that if we want to get married, just do it. At one point it actually would have been a negative, tax-wise, if we'd gotten married. We may eventually. We think about it.

so today i mourn the death of my two lovely rabbits, Skunk and Veruca :( Easter makes me think of them. they were lovely bunnies. i had a third rabbit named Bull (a long eared one) i brought him back to the pet store after i realized everytime i left the room he was butt raping skunkie!!! the stupid pet store wouldnt even give me a refund when i brought him back and was like you totally sold me a rapist rabbit! at one point they were like "we're gonna call the cops!" and i was like omg wtf calm down and i left Bull there in the store. this was some narsty pet store on houston street on the LES. it has since closed down, probably cuz they were selling sociopath rabbits and other things... lizards, the lizards in that store were outta control!

Long meadow and everything near north slope is super white. 9th st entrance where the picnic area is is pretty Hispanic. Clear on the other side of the park is some kind of ethnic but I was always running and can't really remember what kind.

No.

Gay bashing is getting beat up, literally, for being gay. Being called "faggot" by a couple of ignoramuses is not gay bashing. I've been called the "N" word by passing assholes more times than I've liked in my life, but I don't consider myself to have been racially assaulted. Come on, really. Save "gay bashing" for the real thing, which I hope never happens to you, or anyone else.

Cheapening the meaning of important things of any kind makes them less, thereby allowing people to downplay the seriousness of terrible things that people are capable of. Real gay bashing is seriously hateful, awful stuff. Name calling is assholery, not bashing.
April 8, 2012 8:01 PM - CGar

April 8, 2012 8:09 PM - CGar
Funny, jessi. We stayed in San Telmo and went with something close (walking distance) to the hotel the first night, too, which is how we ended up having a not great (to say the least) dinner at a restaurant in Puerto Madero that, it turned out, caters to tourists . . . and how I know there's a Hooters over there!
April 8, 2012 8:12 PM - jessibaby
This isn't a tourist place per se, but I'm a little girl and I go with meek approach when I know my language skills aren't great. They just didn't give the little girl at the bar a bloody steak, is all.

Oh, please. I know someone who got the everloving crap beat out of him for being gay. He was just walking down the street, in Greenwich Village, and these teenagers from the bridge and tunnel brigade decided he was target de jour. They broke his nose, blackened his eyes, and made him jumpy and nervous for life. THAT'S gay bashing.

I also know someone black who was with his parents, driving through the South when he was a child, this was in the 60's, and they were followed by men in a pickup truck who were going "N" hunting for random black people. They didn't know anyone, as they were just passing through the state on their way back to NY City. After driving with these people following them for miles, they pulled into the first driveway of with a house with lights on, and the white people there took them in, and the men in the truck drove off. They ended up waiting in the car until the next morning, and drove like a bat out of hell out of the South. That's real fear for your life.

I'm sorry, but name calling, as hateful as it is, pales in comparison. Being called names is hateful, it's bigoted, prejudicial, stupid and a hundred other adjectives, and I can tell you first hand, it hurts like hell, but to act as if that's the equivalent of real physical harm is just not true.
