The California Supreme Court upheld Prop 8, but they're still recognizing the marriages that happened before the ban. That's. . .something, at least.

Obama's appointment to the Supreme Court makes me happy. Her story is amazing, and I have so much hope for that it's ridiculous.

(ETA: I'm also mywholecry on Dreamwidth. I'll just be cross-posting to there, I think. Unless, of course, there's a Great Fandom Migration. In which case, all bets are off XD)

The only thing that might be sweeter than getting to say President Obama is getting to say former President Bush.

ETA: let's have some good thoughts for Ted Kennedy, who suffered a seizure after the Inaguration. I haven't heard what condition he's in now, but good thoughts.

New semester started today:

1st: Honors Modern History, with Mr. S, who is very conservative and stills considers himself part of the Confederacy.

2nd: Economics, which is incredibly dull, and Ms. H reminds of Ricky Gervais on The Office, but not in a good way.

3rd: Trigonometry. WOE. LOTS OF WOE.

4th: AP Government, which is lovely, even if Ms. B has pictures of Bush, Reagan, and Bob Corker on her walls. There are about 10 of us, and I got to yell about abortion and defend Abraham Lincoln and talk about how Reagan helping end communism doesn’t make up for him ignoring the AIDS epidemic. So much fun.

(OH, AND FIVE DAYS UNTIL THE INAUGURATION! THERE WILL BE CELEBRATORY OBAMA COOKIES.)

Rick Warren?


Really, Obama? I mean, I know that it's, like, one prayer, and it doesn't actually say anything about your stance on gay marriage, but really?

All of the Obama joy from last night was broken up a bit by hearing about Prop 8, but I'm feeling better. Because people are getting angry, and they're fighting it. And I really believe that it could be enough, that passion. Of course, the Obama joy is rushing back, so who knows. Historic events and watching about 9 hours of MSNBC messes with your system.

On a slightly relevent but not really note, Bones was incredibly cute tonight.  If you watched, you might get the slight relevance. Otherwise, I still love Zack with all of my heart, but I find Sweets to slowly be replacing him in my affections.
