The thing that gets me is that the one jackass says "you grew up on Tacos, correct?" and the other, thinking to be helpful, says "No, she didn't, she's Colombian."

And she just keeps going with that "I'm doing this for the check" laughter and corrects them both.

@4- the UW has student health insurance, yes but it's an additional few hundred dollars every quarter. It's not something you get just for being a student.

@7- the Burke is advertised as a commuter link to neighborhoods and cities nearby. It is not a nature trail.
Jul 24, 2013 Queerly Yours commented on What Is the Very Best Reading for a Wedding?.
I have used the section out of the Book of Ruth in the Bible, where Ruth tells her Mother in Law that she won't be separated from her.

Ruth 1:15-18:

15 Naomi said to Ruth: Behold, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and her gods. Return after your sister-in-law.

16 But Ruth said: Do not urge me to leave you or turn back from following you; for where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God.

17 Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. Thus may God do to me, and worse, for death alone shall part us.

18 When Naomi saw that Ruth was determined to go with her, she said no more to her.

The thing I like about it is the determination, the choice that is made. "Where you go, I will go... your people will be my people, your god my god..." Ruth is making a choice and screw what anyone else says.

That is how I think of partnerships. They are a choice made between the couple where each one takes up the other's life and attachments. They do become one person, but not because of some mystical mumbo jumbo, but because that other person is so damn important to them that they are willing to take all of them, the good, the bad, the ugly and all.

@3 Hummus and tortillas for breakfast? Please! :D

Maybe add some chorizo to have a meat in the mix. :D
Mar 27, 2013 Queerly Yours commented on Activists Say Kansas Bill May Allow HIV Positive People to Be Quarantined.
The quoted piece above is unclear about the connection, but the law that they passed explicitly changes existing law so that the Kansas Secretary of Environment and Health can require testing, isolate or quarantine anyone afflicted with any infectious disease listed under that statute.

Isolation and quarantine are explicitly stated in the bill as potential reactions to HIV+ people receiving emergency medical care.

At least he was thorough in directing his ire. All the other Savages, Misters and Misses can rest assured he does not mean them.
Feb 9, 2013 Queerly Yours commented on Sen Kohl-Welles Defends Her Gender-Neutrality Bill.
@3 There's a staff of lawyers, called the code reviser's office, that handles any changes ordered by the legislature. Once a change has proposed, the office writes up a new version of the law with the new wording. The new wording is provided to the legislature before they even vote on the bill.

These changes have already been made, they just need final approval.

@16 The internet tells me that the winner will get $1,000 and will be essentially a beauty pageant winner working for queer social justice in the Seattle Area. While wearing briefs.

rob!, you cannot twunk. If you get hairy but stay skinny, you become an otter. If you get hairy and muscley, you're a wolf. If you get hairy and big (fat or muscle) you're a bear. Heck, if you just get big you're a bear.

Queer male categories are living things. You are what you are now, not what you were back then... unless you desperately try to hold onto it... then you're kind of sad. Embrace what you are now!

Unless...

Wait for it...

Did you mean, to twink as in "I totally went to the club last night and went home with that tiny little twink. I totally twunked last night!"

Then it might be an acceptable alternate meaning. Perhaps.
