I have good people, yo.

Layna still has up on her dry-erase board: “I love you. :) -Elizabeth” Little things like that make me happy. I really love spending time with her. I think the more time i spend with her the more i realize how much i miss(ed) it. We talked about how tax cuts can be bad because taxes pay for important things like teachers and roads and so on. We agreed that it would be so cool if you could choose how your tax money was spent. I think it would be great to go to the radical Catholic feminism meetings, even though i am so not Catholic, but alas, i am committed to Angel. And a big WOW to tonight’s episode. We yelled and applauded and laughed so much, and then at the end it was just “Guh!” I have been really happy with Angel recently. I saw the previews for next week’s Buffy before the State of the Union Address, and i’m hoping it doesn’t suck. Also, they need to have the vegan spring rolls that they served tonight way often, and they need to not run out after 15 minutes.

My dad sent me an e-mail and said “I read your LJ on watching the SOTU and I thought, it can hurt when you're in a minority but be true to yourself.”

I nearly cried. I love my family so much.

LJ apparently wouldn’t let my Mommy post, but her response to my post on Bush’s speech was:

"let me just say, I love my girl.
More immediately to the ponit, I'm proud of my girl's independent mind."

I’ve gotta say that i find it interesting that the two people i became friends with mostly through mutual Buffy love have become my two favorite people (not counting my parents) for supporting me in trying to hash out political issues.

Also, i would like to say that i really appreciate hearing from people, even (especially) people who disagree with me, “I understand where you’re coming from.”

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by an encounter with another human being. Each of us owes the deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light.

You may be feeling a little more hopeful, but the emotions still linger from yesterday. These are powerful times for you sensitive Crabs, especially as interpersonal communication takes the center stage for the next couple of days. Be real, but don’t give up…even if you feel overwhelmed.
-BeliefNet horoscope for January 29, 2003

Written but not posted after the civil liberties conference keynote speech on Bayard Rustin last Thursday:
I want so desperately to be consistent. To oppose all suffering and killing, to insist that there must always be an alternative. I want so badly to be able to believe and espouse that. “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds.” I know Emerson said that in reference to changing your mind about what you believe, but i think it’s okay to appropriate it to defend flexibility and compromise.
