Potpourri 2

Links of interest:

The Anchorage Daily News endorses Obama for president.

Here in California, there’s a proposition on the ballot that would amend California’s constitution to make same-sex marriage illegal. There was a Yes on 8 rally in Camarillo, CA yesterday. You can read about it (beautifully written by a No on 8 supporter) right here.

If you haven’t seen the Shiba Inu Puppy cam, you’ve been missing quite a show. Take it from me…watching these puppies is entertaining and therapeutic.

My thanks to all who have offered kind words and support. You can’t imagine how many times I’ve been moved to tears by your comments, e-mails and calls. The Scout is hanging in there. Me too. My mother is the same (read: manic, paranoid).

Finally, a theme for Monday: Terrorism, Vaginas, and the Blank Page Before You

“And remember—the world is full of both the terrifying and the absurd, in nearly equal measure…”


This is a personal blog. Expect a potpourri of stuff.

  1. I truly feel for you. My mother is in the early stages of alzheimers and slips into bizarre moments where she isn’t completely oriented to time and place. I can’t image what it must be like to watch ones own mother in such a swirl of detachment from the rest of us. Its frightening and sad to take over the role as care giver and decision maker when our parents slip away mentally.

    Strength to you.

  2. You should see my block: “No on 8” and “Obama/Biden” signs all up and down the street. I’m so proud to live here.

    I’m fortunate that my mother retained her mental faculties all the way. It worried her more than anything else, but she was always sharp.

    If you need to kick anything, Kelly, I’ve got some junk over here in the back yard you can smash.

  3. I have to agree with No on 8.
    When we got that little notice that the yes on 8 was planning on publishing names of the no on 8 contributors as some sort of grand plan to diminish support I had to do something. I contributed on behalf of the family.

    The first time in all my voting years I have ever contributed monetarily to. Its that important.

    Besides that I get a nifty clipping with my name in print, how cool is that?

  4. Oh please. Apple computers contributed huge money to No on 8.
    So did other large corporations. They put it out in press releases. They’re not ashamed. Go ahead and publish names, people are proud of their lack of prejudice. Closet conservatives are the ones who are ashamed to say who they are.
