January 1, 2013; A New Year! A New Day!

Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3.....

Today is Jan 1, 2013. The start of a New Year and new things to come. I'd like to try and start posting on my journal again my thoughts for the day. I'm curious to see if this will cross post to my Facebook page properly and if doing this on a regular basis will matter much or not. I really don't have much to say right now. Just thought I'd restart my engines over on this end.

LJ is being an ass again and this did not cross post to Facebook w/o a whole bunch of hassle. This site is really a pain in the ass and I will be looking for another journal site.

NY State (My Home State) Passes Gay Marriage Bill !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ALBANY, N.Y. — In a historic late night vote — the last vote of the legislative session, after years of failed efforts to align votes in both Assembly and the Senate, and on the eve of New York City pride — the New York state Senate late Friday approved the Marriage Equality Act, granting same-sex couples the right to marry.

New York will become the sixth, and most populous U.S. state to-date, to allow gays and lesbians to wed — the bill passed by a vote 33-29.

Earlier in the evening, the state Assembly approved the amended version of bill, which included religious exemptions attached in the Senate.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who championed the bill and listed marriage equality as among his top three legislative priorities for the year, has promised to sign the bill into law. Same-sex unions can begin 30 days after that.

“New York’s a big deal,” said James Esseks,” the director of the ACLU’s LGBT Project. “And in terms of cultural relevance to the rest of the country, it’s huge.”

Esseks predicted New York would lead a procession of states in approving same-sex marriage, though with most state legislatures finished with or nearing the end of their annual sessions, significant movement is not likely until next year.

The Senate adjourned moments after announcing the bill’s passage.

Yay for my home state! Now all I need is to find a rich boyfriend willing to slip a ring on my finger, buy a house, have 1.2 kids and move to Sicily or Naples.

The Peen Tweet That The Mass Media Missed

I'm testing to see if my html works before posting it to another comm. I'll just leave this here if it does. It's not bad to look at and I'd do him but for what it's worth the shaved look is not quite my type.

Oh Twitter, you bring us such joy. UK rugby player Wayne Godwin had a crazy night with his teammates where he ended up naked (um, what exactly happened?) and posing for the camera. A few clicks later and the NSFW picture ended up on Twitter for the world to behold. And, oh, is it a lot to behold. Click The Pic Below To Go To Full Nude Pic
