I saw the trailer for "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix"--it is included in my HBO package.  Thank you for good cable!

It was yummy and you can really see a difference between the maturity of the actors from this one to the next.

Exciting.  I am hoping to be in Tucson for the premiere so we can have costume/slash fun!

Also, is anyone planning to see Eragon?  Kevin is obsessed with the books.

While we were in Winston-Salem, Kyle dropped his phone and it broke.  A bit over $150 later and Nextel gave him a new one.

My laptop has to get sent to gateway for a new case.  The hinges are cracked.  I think I may end up without a computer (and during times when Kyle is out of town, internet) for up to three weeks!! And there aren't any cyber cafes here for me to go to.  :(  *twitch* *twitch* will I be able to survive without the net?  This especially sucks when Kyle is gone because my computer/lj/writing etc, is how I entertain myself usually.   GRRR.

Plus, I was on the way to get food today and my cell phone slid off of the console in the truck.  Wouldn't you know it landed in the unlidded cup of water Kyle had in the drink holder?  We are trying to dry it out.  Amazingly it has successfully made callls since then.  But it turns itself to "airplane mode" and then says "no service" at radom intervals!  Please let it dry out and work, cuz that would suck suck suck.  I have insurance, so hopefully it wouldn't be too much money to replace it.  GRRRR.

On a good note...Kyle and I just watched Brokeback Mountain.  He had never seen it and was quite impressed by it.  It made me cry, but it felt good to have some release for the emotions I have been having lately.  Especially since the rampant homophobia that has been running about is enough to drive a girl nuts.

Anyhoodle...I think we have finally reached the end of our traveling and not staying at home.  We have been so many places and around so many people that it has been really nice to be home today.  Just the two of us.  No bullshit, no pretending to be something I am not...no helping people move or weddings or holidays or...yay for calm normalcy.

And Kyle told me he loves me.  I knew this.  But it made me extremely happy nonetheless.  I haven't felt this way about anyone since Leah, so I am so very very very happy with the boy.

I will upload pics soon...we got some cool ones from the beach house where we stayed.  It was awesome!

This was included in the blessing over dinner night before last.

Kyles parents love me!  It sort of reminds me of Adrienne's parents.  They loved me too.

And I tell myself that they love me every time I walk by the bullitain board in the hall that says "annoy a liberal--work, succeed, be happy." 

They say grace at every meal.

But I have brought them peace.  Interesting.

I am not ungrateful for this, don't get me wrong.  It is just a strange place to occupy, because I feel like I am an alien from another planet.  The Planet Liberal sends its regards.

Not enough time to post about everything that has gone on since thanksgiving.  But I am alive.  Kyle and I will pack up our puppies and head back to Jacksonville tomorrow or the next day.  We are in Advance, NC visiting his folks.

Hugs to everyone!

Ahhhhh ha ha ha ha ha....do these kids look like dursleys or what?  Is she crying because her dad isn't a senator, or because, as someone else asked, her dad is such an assbag?  How about the boy...someone on crafting_change's lj suggested that he looks as though he spotted his gay lover in the audidence "dude, you weren't supposed to show up here!"

Yay for slash colored goggles and yay for Santorum loosing his race!  I would hate to be one of his kids, though.  Jebus.

"*insert real name here*, you're crazy..."  quoi?  I have now heard it all...the woman who sat on her couch during the millenium (sp?) with the lights out and a shotgun on her lap because "its not the computers, the people are crazy" and who is utterly convinced that George W. Bush is a clone of his father and that scientists are controlling the weather and making mistakes...thus Katrina and the Tsunamis...wow.

I'm crazy?  Why, you ask?  Because I am happy that Arizona passed the increase in the minimum wage!  I am such a NUT!  Didn't you all know that pure capitalism works?  Communism never works, *insert real name here*.   Now no one will be able to afford bread.  Shame on those of us that voted for the raise in the minimum wage.

"I have seen them raise it over and over and over and you can never live on it because you can't live on minimum wage..." 

"Mom, the last time they raised it was 1994." 

"No, *real name*, they just raised it to $5.15.  It used to be $4.25."

"MOM, that was 1994!!"

"No, *real name* you are crazy.  And abortion should be mandatory.  If you can't feed 'em, don't breed em.   And if you won't have an aboriton and you can't afford your kids they should be taken away and given up for adoption!"

THIS FROM THE WOMAN THAT RAISED FIVE KIDS ON THE SALARY OF A WAITRESS!  Wow. Wow. Wow.

*head desk*

After a similarly circular conversation about the smoking ban....

"I just can't talk to you right now, Mom.  I have to go!" 

"Bye, love you."

Urgh.  Urgh. Urgh.

CNN is projecting a solid defeat of South Dakota's abortion ban!  YAY!

Boo on all the states that have handily passed bans on same sex marriage--it looks like Arizona is the only one that will defeat it (we are holding steady at a majority).  Wow.  Never woulda thunk it.  But perhaps the tactics used to argue against it--more coalitional, why deny rights kinds of arguments...perhaps there is something there.  Interesting.

Yay for the dems taking the house.  *crosses fingers for more senate seats*

Not that they are all on our side--some of them are Republicrats--Republicans in Democrat suits.

But it is hope.

Being on the East coast and waiting for election returns sucks.

Boo Lieberman won.  Yay Dems taking a lot of governorships.

Boo on English Only (though this is not a surpise).

*anxiously awaits the rest*
