Yay for the UCC!

For some of you, this is old news. The Synod of the  UCC (United Church of Christ) has overwhelmingly voted in favor of gay marriage. This makes them the first mainline protestant denomination to do so. (The UUs did it a while back.) They also have come out in favor of a broad and interesting array of very progressive causes.

There's lots of blogging going on about this. It's pretty interesting to watch.

Just About Done

Well, I cleaned out the last of the stuff in my house. After a week of crazed packing, hauling, tag sale-ing, moving stuff in my car to the house I'm staying in, to the storage bin, to the dump, etc. etc. I am completely, totally, utterly wiped out. I have never in my life been this tired, or this sore.

The good thing is that for the most part, I made it through unscathed. No big disasters, no major breakage, no major glitches. It all went pretty much as planned, except that it took me longer than I thought it would (not much longer, happily.)

Nice pic

I've been reading about the whole Karl Rove outing Valerie Plame thingy in the blogosphere (not a lot of actual news coverage that I've heard – this search on google shows that few major news outlets seem to be covering this story so far.) Anyway, I'm not going to pontificate about it – there is plenty of that going on. I'm just going to post this picture, that I got from Liberal Avenger, who got it from someone else, of course.

Friday Cat blogging on Saturday

Thursday, my cats, Frida (Kahlo) and (Georgia) O'Keefe, went to their new mom. It was very sad, although I am happy they will be in a great environment, and greatly loved. It's amazing how a house is just different without the animal energy.
