Good news all around us!

My parent's are arriving in 12 hours! From America! For 5 days! On their way to France to spend to weeks with their best friends in a farmhouse in Bordeaux getting plottzed! Yay for parents!

On Saturday they will be....

...meeting the Pirate's parents. Dun-dun-dun-duh!

Yikes. and Yay. I didn't get much sleep last night. I'm all a muddle. There won't be much (any) blogging here for about a week while I play tour guide and take my parents around Brizzle, but this should provide enough joy to get you through:

San Diego's mayor has a genuine change of heart and signs into action a bill in support of gay marraige.

It's been so long since there's been good news on the LGBT front, I thought this deserved a mention. I almost cried watching it. I hope he runs for governor.

Yay for parents! Have a wonderful week.

Michael said...

I'm so glad for you! AND the mayor.

But is it sour grapes for me to wish that one day it won't have to be so PERSONAL in order for a guy like that to see that equality should be a given?

Dave said...

Hope you've tidied-up your room.

Annie Rhiannon said...

Good luck. Do both sets of parents drink?

The best advice I can give you is something somebody said to me last week;

"Don't worry, it'll only happen three times. How many times did your sets of grandparents meet, when you think about it?"

Da Nator said...

Good luck! Let us know how it goes.

Yeah, great press conference. Although I'll be happier when it's no longer something to get choked up about.

If your parents bring the mayor of San Diego in their luggage, will you be happy?

Miss Melville said...

Heya-- if you happen to see this before they leave, say hello to them for me!

Also, I've recently acquired Skype. How do I find you?

hendrix said...

Hope it all goes well at the meeting of the tribes, possibly one of the most nerve wracking experiences ever... which is why I've studiously avoided it so far!

Chaucer's Bitch said...
