I am linking up with Shana for Random Musings Friday.
OK. ARRRRG. So....the topic of Marriage has been in the news a lot this week. On Tuesday, the majority of North Carolina voters voted to pass Amendment One. Well for the record, I voted against it and was upset that it passed. Although 61% of NC voters voted for it, my Facebook feed and the majority of my neighbors' lawn signs pointed in a different direction. I suck at explaining things and my feelings on such things in an articulate manner. Here (click on 'official explanation') is the official explanation of the amendment from the NC Voting website. Just know that I'm sad but I appreciate all the people who tried and continue to try to fight it. Also the President made me feel a little bit better on Wednesday.
On another note, let's not hate/threaten people who voted for the Amendment. Let's discuss and educate and all get along. OK? OK.
And lastly, I got upset when I saw how many people said they were ashamed/embarrassed to be North Carolinians. I'm not ashamed. I didn't vote to pass the amendment. Plus North Carolina is awesome* for many things...mountains and beaches, Dawson's Creek and One Tree Hill (you know you watched it), college basketball, the Wright Brothers, Cheerwine, Krispy Kreme Donuts, BBQ, peach ice cream, Natty Green's Wildflower Beer, The Hunger Games Movie, Bojangles, Harris Teeter, Carowinds, The Andy Griffith Show, Ken Jeong, Zach Galifinakas, many American Idol finalists, getting out of work/school for a tiny bit of snow or ice, NC State University, the city of Greensboro, etc. I could go on, but I won't. *ok, a couple of those might be questionable on how awesome they are
North Carolina discussion over. Start of really random musings.
On Monday we went to beer and cheese school at a local restaurant. I never thought I'd get sick of cheese. But the next day, even the thought of cheese made me feel a bit ill. I thought it was a fun experience (and definitely the only type of school I'm currently interested in attending). The first 4 cheese and beer pairings were amazing but by the time we got to the 5th one, I was about cheesed out. Next time maybe they can give us smaller hunks of cheese and maybe a few more fruits and veggies. Still fun though.
ABC Family Rant-Shouldn't the girls on the "hit" show Make It or Break It be more focused on their gymnastics training for the Olympics instead of frolicking around with boys all the time? Did they not learn last year how quickly your Olympic career can end if you get pregnant? Come on. Focus girls. The Olympics is in a couple of months. You can date boys after that.......Ok fine I guess this show wouldn't be that interesting if their was no boy drama. Well, there it is. Now you know I watch at least one ABC Family show.
Parks and Recreation is the best show ever. KNOPE 2012!
That's all the deepness I can handle this morning.
Happy Friday and Happy Early Mother's Day to all the Moms out there!
