Men are ten times more scared of marrying the wrong person than of never getting married at all. However, only 8 percent of bachelors never want to marry.
House: Out-of-state gays can marry here
[[ Opponents of the bill are dismayed by the House vote. "With that protective barrier removed, out-of-state same-sex couples who marry here will sue to seek recognition in their home states, creating a flood of costly lawsuits and further eroding the people's right to define marriage democratically," the Massachusetts Family Institute said in a statement. ]]
Metro Westbus line eyed - "MWRTA gets initial approval for service between Framingham and Green Line"
[[ The service would have the four buses running between Newton and Framingham for three hours in the morning and three hours in the evening. The buses would make several stops in between and the trip would take an hour from end to end. ]]
Seen yesterday: "If Somerville was an ice cream, what flavors would it be?"
forwarded mail: bank statement, Meetinghouse Concert postcard
correctly addressed mail: birthday card+check from my grandmother, birthday card from my parents
birthday card from my parents:
Front: [image of a tv with an image of the Master behind Buffy, from "Prophecy Girl"] text below: "It's your birthday. The creatures of the night will soon gather."
Inside: [Buffy theme song plays] text: "Time for ice cream and stake." [my mom wrote: "Oh come on - how could I resist?"]
And the back has the "Welcome to Sunnydale, enjoy your stay" sign
I gleed at the Buffy card and my housemate asked if I was a fan of Buffy. I almost said, "What you mean 'was'?" but just said yes. She asked if I'd followed Joss' subsequent ventures and I said yes. She then said, "Should I make you a Jayne hat?" I laughed and said I'm not much of a hat person.
