It sucks feeling discontent. It sucks walking around the house with everyone asleep when you're wide awake and grumpy. It sucks feeling lonely in the world, until you walk into your bedroom and realize your better half has left his jacket on your bed. That's when you pick it up, bury your face inside it, breathe his smell deeply and remember that you are in fact the luckiest man in the world. Funny how your perception is altered by something so simple as a scent.

I'm not celebrating Halloween this year. Normally it is my favorite holiday, and I love getting all decked out and stuff but this year the spirit of Halloween has completely bypassed me. That and the fact that a few Jesusnazis in my town have decided that since Halloween falls on a Sunday this year that we're going to have to celebrate it on Saturday instead. "You just don't do it on Sunday. That's Christ's day. You go to church on Sunday, you don't go out and celebrate the devil. That'll confuse a child." Or at least so sayeth Sandra Hulsey of Greenville, Georgia. There's a story on CNN.com entitled Halloween on Sunday troubles some Southerners that will kill whatever faith you may have left in people's common sense. Apparently Sunday is also not a good day for independent thought, employment of base logic, or the practical grasp of reason. Slap me if I get sentimental. Another memorable quote: "It's a day for the good Lord, not for the devil," said Barbara Braswell, who plans to send her 4-year-old granddaughter Maliyah out trick-or-treating in a princess costume on Saturday instead.

All over town I'm seeing these campaign type signs on people's (and churches') lawns that say "Protect Traditional Marriage". Within a week or two Damien & I want to make some signs that say "...BY NOT GETTING A DIVORCE, YOU MORONS" and spend an evening very late placing these signs next to those signs. Who locally wants to come along? The more the merrier! I'll take pictures of each and every one placed! I'll even put my gmail address on them!
