  •  I'm going to be very, very bad here (14+ / 0-)

    ...and pimp a diary.

    This afternoon I finally got around to posting my annual diary desperately begging for money soliciting donations for my participation in AIDS/LifeCycle. It seems to be sliding gradually off the recent diary list so if you wouldn't mind showing it a bit of love I'd really be grateful.

    CHEERS to Friday, the best day of the week besides Saturday and Sunday.

    CHEERS to good weekend weather in the Bay Area...sunny and pleasant apart from the normal dose of morning fog and probably a bit milder than the past day or two.

    JEERS to shameless caving on the sequester when it inconveniences Congresscritters.

    JEERS to the BSA's craven attempts to appear enlightened. As Bill noted above and as was noted elsewhere the proposed policy arguably makes things worse. By allowing gay kids to join the BSA but prohibiting out gay leaders, it merely makes the Scouts another avenue by which the religious right can shame gay youth into trying to "turn straight."

    CHEERS to Dave in Northridge's terrific diary on the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

    CHEERS to long-suffering spouses. Not only will I be spending a good portion of this weekend participating in bike rides one way or the other (photographing one tomorrow, doing one on Sunday) and then to make things worse, spending THREE DAYS of bike riding next weekend, I'll be abandoning Trapper after dinner this evening. It's then anniversary of my maternal grandmother's death (1985) my ex's death (1993) and my dad's death so I'm going to shock the members of my synagogue by showing up to recite the Kaddish for them. And then I'll go home and go to bed. However does Trapper put up with me?

    CHEERS to all of you here in the Kiddie Pool and have a great weekend!
