Okay, I didn't, but if I wanted to, I could have, because today both just became officially legal in Washington state! Take THAT Oregon and California! You aren't the coolest kids on the west coast anymore! We already had the highest minimum wage in the country, but now we are the first state to have both gay marriage and recreational pot, so, we could legitimately change our state from the Evergreen state to The Progressive state!
On a more somber note, I would like to say to the very conservative people in Idaho... we're coming for you!! We're right next door and our godless ways are going to spread to your state and corrupt your children!!!
But seriously, I have lived in Washington state for almost all of my life and I just feel so goddamn proud of my home state! I watched Lincoln a couple weeks ago and I walked out beaming with pride about how MY vote made such a difference in this last election. The PEOPLE of my state voted for freedom and equality and we'll go down in the history books as the first state to go the full liberal. I mean, what is this state going to do next? Single payer health care? Oh, right, that's in the works too. ;) God DAMN I love my state!!
Thanks for the video link, Vita Brevis!
Speaking of marriage, my wife Melissa and I just had our 12th wedding anniversary on the 1st. I can't imagine not having been able to marry Melissa. Now my friends in this state don't have to imagine not marrying who they love. Here's a picture from our wedding. Our sort of wedding. We eloped. It was Friday and I asked her what she wanted to do over the weekend. She said 'I don't know'. I asked if she wanted to elope. She said yes. We called a couple friends to be witnesses and 2 days later we were making slightly awkward phone calls to our families and friends. :P
