Last night and today

Last night I was surprised to find out when I got home that a notary public was coming over to solemnize the civil union domestic partnership between jkusters and thomasm - wow! Although they are passing it off as not being a big deal, everyone else thinks it is, and I think it's great. I mean, really - after buying a house together and just celebrating their 11th anniversary, this seems like a 'natch. Congratulations to them both! (Me, I'll have to wait, oh, about 3 years before I can do anything of the sort. Maybe by then it'll be legal. Either way, we're having a very large ceremony, you betcha!)

They went off to celebrate at Islands, but I stayed home to finish up some laundry and some stuff I was working on online (including a discussion online that prompted my last entry), and I made a quick Hamburger Helper dinner (yummy!). Q called while I was making it and he seems settled (at least for now) in his sponsor's place, but he's going to see how it pans out. Pros: He'll be saving a lot of money (especially if they don't grant him a housing allowance), it's close to base, he's not signing a lease so he can leave if it doesn't work out, it guarantees he won't have to live on base. Cons: Living with a co-worker, he'll have to stay closeted at home, he wants to live on his own. A difficult choice, but it seems the right one to make for now.

After I ate I grabbed the wedding presents and headed down to Kris and Darrel's to drop them off. They gave me much chocolate for the favor, they got to meet Quincy Bear, and they told me all the gossip about the wedding. I got back after midnight, chatted with Daniel, and headed to bed.

Today it's work work work, although my weekly got pushed to tomorrow because Annamarie's schedule suddenly got hectic today. I also had to take back some AV equipment to Media Services because my evil co-worker went to the event last night and it made her too sore to make it in today. Bah. Tonight I'll be chatting with Peter about the Network, but the LYC meeting was cancelled because the event isn't happening on Sunday (although Mark said the meeting was supposed to be on Tuesday - Yudi doesn't seem to know what's going on).

EDITED: It was a domestic partnership, not a civil union. Duh.

I know that details don't matter as much to you as they do to Michael and myself, but we did not enter into a civil union. Civil unions are not available in California. We registered as domestic partners. There are significant differences between the two, and it's important to realize that.

As for Yudi not knowing what's going on, is that much of a surprise? ;-)
