Snippets from my weekend
Replaced the ball rod in my sink, and now the sink's drain stopper works again. Home improvement for the win!

Looking forward to visiting Chicago family for Easter.

"If you ever get to the point where it's hopeless and nothing more can be done, you've overlooked something." -Brian Owens

Today at the grocery, I bought a whole artichoke. Now how do I cook it?

How exciting... it used to be that most of my friends were allowed to get married here in Michigan, but not all of them. Now all of my friends are allowed enjoy what my sweetie and I are enjoying.

March 22nd is the appropriate date to take the Christmas lights down from the front of the house, right? (For the record, we haven't actually turned the lights ON since after the holidays. We aren't THAT tacky....but close.)

Do I know somebody who sells Origami Owl? Or who knows somebody (local) that does?

Today at work one of the managers saw that it was the International Day of Happiness, so she had T put on the dragon suit and carry a "Free Hugs" sign around the office. Several hugs were exchanged. He joined our 3pm stretch session and tried to do a Downward Dragon while we were doing yoga. He was going to try riding the giant tricycle, but his tail got in the way.

(It was also a very long day of coding and hard work, which made the Free Hugs moment even nicer. Does this sound appealing? Are you good with Java, JavaScript, and Agile development? Message me. Maybe next year you can be the one doing yoga in a dragon costume during your code break.)

Some nights, I stay up cashing in my bad luck
Some nights, I call it a draw
Some nights, I wish that my lips could build a castle
Some nights, I wish they'd just fall off

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?
Most nights, I don't know anymore...

Unfortunately, the result of this is that a lot of people are going to be in marriage limbo. When district court judges issue major rulings like this on topics that have not been clearly decided by the higher courts, they're supposed to stay (put on hold) their ruling until the appeals court confirms it.

Since the judge here didn't follow this process, his ruling went into effect for one whole day before the appeals court put it on hold for him. So now anyone who didn't get married in that day can't get married, and the people who did get married may well not have their marriages recognized, and might get forcibly annulled if the higher courts throw the district court ruling out. I'm sure the lawyers are already lining up at the trough to litigate those secondary battles.

On the artichoke front, you kick a message to Tegan on FB. She's a big artichoke fan. I think the answer is to put it in a covered pot with water and steam it, but see sentence one above because I'm probably wrong.
