Wired

So yesterday was a pretty eventful day. I woke up with a cold sore. It’s a combination of “feel good” and “attractive”. Cold sores are the new black. For reals.

My sarcastic streak is on top form today. It’s like it had extra caffeine with breakfast this morning! Except it’s after midnight and I’ve not had any coffee yet. Perhaps it’s cranky.

Yesterday evening my brother-in-law Alan asked his long term girlfriend to marry him. To be fair, it’s about time. We’d all been saying they should get married for ages now, so often that I even created a Facebook page called “Alan should TOTALLY marry Tash”
Anyway, so they’re engaged and I couldn’t be any happier for them (unless of course there’s also a baby on the way, cause that’d just be freaking awesome).

So they’re getting married!!!! I wish them all the happiness in the world and can’t wait to celebrate their big day!

After that excitement, the hubs and I settled down with some tv. The hubs put on a new series of 24.

Between the excitement of the engagement and the suspense of tonight’s viewing, I’m fully wired.

Hubs is fast asleep. I’m laying in bed, writing a post and wishing I didn’t have a stupid cold sore and also wishing that our bed was a king size rather than a double.

Hopefully sleep will claim me soon and I won’t fall off the edge of the bed where I’m perched.

The Pact

This morning I remember a teenaged pact I made when I was 16 with my best friend. We both made a pact that if we were both unmarried at 40 then we’d marry each other, because lets face it, gay marriage should be legal by then.

Fast forward 11 years and it’s likely our pact won’t ever need to be fulfilled. I’m married and she’s in a long term committed relationship that will most likely end in marriage.

However, at 16, I thought it’d take a long time for the government to allow same sex marriages. In many cases same sex marriage is legal and has been for quite some time. In other places not so much, and that’s a real shame.

People who love each other should be allowed to marry regardless of who they love or their sexuality. I for one fully support same sex marriages and believe everyone should be allowed the chance to marry whoever they like.

This week it was announced that Kim Kardashian was divorcing her husband of only 72 days. Her multi-million dollar wedding covered 2 tv shows and countless newspapers and magazines. what a shame that some people can throw a lavish wedding ceremony only to have their marriage dissolve in less than 3 months. Yet same sex couples who have been together for years on end aren’t allowed to marry.

Maybe that will have changed by the time I’m 40, if not hopefully before then. In the meantime keep campaigning. It will happen. One day.
