You made me smile dammit…

As much as I am opposed to gay marriage — because I am opposed to all marriage, not just the same-sex ones — this picture really did make me smile. It’s nice that people are allowed to be happy. The only thing sillier that using the government, church or other oppressive state apparatus to control human interrelations is denying people the right to have their interrelations recognized by the aforementioned apparatus…

Poops like a Bunny

Bunny poops
Like a bunny
Doesn’t say whoops
Thinks it’s funny

Hops along
Sneaking lettuce
Hums his song
Come and get us

Bunny poops
on our terrace
Snorts and giggles
He’s not embarrassed

Runs some more
Dodging mice
Nibbles ‘lions
And twitching twice

Ends the day
Curled on Mommy
No cares at all
Except, of course,
for his tummy.

On occasion of thinking Shel

The inevitable conclusion is…

So you wanted marriage eh? Well now you got it… have fun with it…

Corning, I.B.M. and Raytheon all provide domestic partner benefits to employees with same-sex partners in states where they cannot marry. But now that they can legally wed in New York, five other states and the District of Columbia, they will be required to do so if they want their partner to be covered for a routine checkup or a root canal.

Seems by asking for the right to acquire access to an outdated institution, gays are helping bolster the antiquated idea that without government sanction, a relationship isn’t valid. And now they (along with the rest of us) are gonna have to suffer. Lovely… just lovely…

Bruce’s Stolen Honey Pizza Dough

I stole this from the internet. But it’s still my favourite pizza dough recipe!

1 cup warm water
2 Tbs honey
1 tsp salt
1 Tbs sugar
package of yeast
3 cups flour
2 Tbs olive oil
1/4 cup water

Add yeast to 1/4 cup of water.
Mix water, honey, salt and sugar.
Add yeast to mixture.
Add 1 cup of flour and olive oil
Add rest of flour: knead for 1 minute.
Rest 45 minutes in warm spot.
Punch down.
Rest 15 minutes.

Freezes well (add a bit of olive oil to ziploc bag). Makes two pretty good size pizzas.

As I said, I got this one off the internet and basically taught myself the intricacies of dough by trial and error. Actually I still rarely have it turn out the same way twice in a row, but it is very forgiving: that’s why I like the recipe.
