Random-ness

Busy day.  We stopped by the Mall to discover that I have a “proprietory” watch (Fossil) which translates into driving to Grove City to buy a watch band.  Not cool, Fossil.  Not cool.  I'm planning on wearing my pocketless culottes tomorrow so I can't even carry around my Blackberry as I galivant between offices.  Not cool, Fossil.  But I do love the watch.

Then we headed up to goose-killing country er, North Park for the Lambda/GLCC Family picnic.  It was really nice.  Tom Michalow (County Council candidate – District 1) stopped by.  I finally had my photo taken by OUT.  Buzz manned the grill most excellently AND made cupcakes for the party.  Someone caught a 3 inch fish.  All in all, a good way to spend a few hours on a lazy August Sunday.

Tonight, we took a walk around the block with Amadeus who was sooo good meeting new people.  He was rather indignant that I would not allow him to eat a chicken bone, but otherwise a good time was had by all.  He only “rested” one time. 

A few links of interest

Julia Childs was known as a homophobe who repented in late life.  h/t http://www.365gay.com

How far do you tolerate another person’s intolerance? When is it important to swear off an artist or a public figure and when is it just silly? And why will my brain let me enjoy some of them and not others?

Questions I ponder all of the time. People tell me I am too PC for anyone's good.  It irritates me quite a bit when people use the term Chinese Auction, but try being the girl that explains how the term is offensive.  People are very taken aback and think that I'm way over the top. 

The issue of homophobic support popped up in a conversation I had about gay friendly candidates accepting campaign donations from homophobes.  Not organizations, but general people.  You can see how quickly this could get out of hand?

We saw Julie & Julia on Friday.  It was entertaining.  Meryl Streep was her usual delightful self and owned the movie.  No mention of anything gay related.

From PageOneQ, comes a story about the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck.  I kid you not.

Pam's House Blend has an Open Thread on the quagmire that is the California marriage equality lawsuit.  Very complicated stuff.

Just caught the fireworks courtesy of the new casino.  Very impressive.
