Ok, I’m done.


So you may have noticed from last night’s post that I was a little sentimental, or emotional, or vulnerable, or whichever state of mind you think fits. Well, I’m better now. That’s what happens to me when I watch two movies that moved me, re-read portions of the books that the movies were based on, and then listened to sappy music that made me think of the storylines of the movies/books. That’s what I did for nearly two days. I couldn’t help my last posting, if I didn’t get it out, I would have exploded.

The weekend, in general was good. I cleaned like a mad woman yesterday and today I made a pot of stew, a big spaghetti and sausage dinner, and three loaves of fresh bread(yes, from scratch.) Now I’m tired as hell. I wouldn’t even be typing except my ipod’s not done being updated. Freakin’ long-ass podcasts. They’re the reason I haven’t been posting The Shuffle on a regular basis. There are weeks where I’ll only listen to music once or twice. I really love podcasts. And Monday’s are the best since I get all of my favorites from the weekend: Wait, Wait… Don’t tell me, This American Life, and some others that either I can’t remember or I’m too embarassed to name.

Hey! Looks like I’m all updated. I’m going to shut this thing down and try to find a new book that won’t send me into a suicidal spiral. Hasta luego, mis amigas. And maybe Chuck.

By the way, you may have noticed that the graphics that I choose to accompany these postings have little, or nothing, to do with the content. I just pick what I feel like at the moment. But if you feel like it, comment with what you think the larger symbolic meaning may be. I always enjoy a good psychological interpretation.

    So, I am sitting here at 9:17 pm and it is clear that the marriage amendment is going to pass. My emotions have ran the gamet (I am not a spelling wiz and I am pissed so please excuse any errors). At first I was pissed-and I mean wicked pissed. Let me give you a glimpse of that “pissed” moment, just for the sake of science. I did about 10 loads of wash while thinking over and over in my head what a bunch of fucking bigots we are. This isn’t the land of the free or the home of the brave. The US isn’t some superior country where a person can live out their dream. Well, they can if they aren’t gay…..or a minority……or a woman. Okay, so pretty much middle-aged, straight white men can live the dream. Well yippee-fucking-do! Okay, that was my pissed section of the gamet. Then I cried. I thought of you Cheri-you, T.J. and Micah…..and I cried. I am going to apologize for the rest of the “straight” world who are too ignorant to realize that there isn’t a “straight world.” After my pissed phase and crying jag let off I came into my stubborn stage. My grandpa was one of the first white men to stand up for racial equality in Wisconsin. He was relentless yet soft spoken-that was how he got it done. And I realized, getting angry isn’t going to help; crying isn’t going to help; being patient yet persistent—that will help. So to summarize my emotional roller coaster-I will not forget about you and your family. I will be patient, yet persistent, and eventually we will make the world see that love doesn’t care what you look like or whom you choose to love. So, kiss your wife and your son and remember, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” People need to be slowly brought out of ignorance and bigotry but it can be done. Any time you need me I am here.

    Hi Cheri – I miss you, sounds like you have been going through an emotional rollercoaster. I am in the same boat and what to do when things become to much? I blog about it..I finally jumped back on the wagon and it feels great. Check me out. I know it is hard to stay strong with all this political garbage going on but try it, staying strong that is.
