Seriously cool and seriously creative. I adore his tutorials, all very well detailed. He is also happy to help out by email, or recommend a workaround if you just don't have something to complete one of his patterns.   Highly highly recommend him!

 Sure it does. The song and the movie is about finding a place to joyously belong, with people who share one's life in beautiful colorful ways. What could be more appropriate and beautiful than a group of people being able to belong, joyously together? Isn't that the what, at the heart of things, we all want? To share belonging with others, to share joy and sorrow, love, and anger, laughter and tears? To join our best beloveds in all of life's major events, births and changes and to be allowed to help ease each other's grief?

I like to think that Jim Henson would want us to all be kind, and compassionate, loving and tolerant of each other, regardless of the circumstances and in spite of our differences.

Even though I suspect you would vehemently oppose me and mine living our lives in loving, (and now legal) partnerships, I will still love and tolerate you, because you are a human being and deserve my compassion.

I hope you find the joy in your life and can find a way to let others find their own paths to that joy without feeling as if it somehow detracts from your happiness to have others be happy. I wish you well.

9 years ago, right about now, at 3 am, I was joined in matrimony to the beautiful woman in the bed beside me, reading over my shoulder. I couldn't have asked for a better lover, partner and best friend.  I didn't know that I would learn so much, love so much or be so fricking happy. Thank you for showing up, baby girl, you make my life so much better than I could ever have imagined.

So, for those of you not on my other social media...

Our Muus cat was very sick and losing weight drastically as well as being obviously dehydrated. The wee wyfe made the decision to take him into the Vet ER last night, and was told that it was the correct decision, it would not have been pretty had we waited any longer.

After a big gulp at the money, and a lot of fearful crying on my part, we authorized nearly a grand worth of tests to make sure it was pancreatitus, which has a really good pronogsis and not somehting major enough that we would have to choose to put him to sleep because we just couldn't pay out anymore.

It is pancreatitus, and while he has a longer term issue of either inflamed bowel or small cell lymphoma of the bowel, the treatment for all is just prednisone, which doesn't cost much, and is far easier on him and us than a lot of other possibilites.

So, facing a huge vet bill, in addition to the van repairs, we were squeaking tight, but it was all going to be ok. Just requiring a lot of caution with money and  quite a few ramen lunches and lentil meals.

One of our best beloved chosen family just called our vet and paid the balance due on the vet bill, this means all we have to cover is the prednisone and the deposit we already paid.

Another of our beloveds is meeting us for a coffee date when we are in (all pre-paid hotel and show tickets, so we couldn't cancel the trip to snag more money) SF.

We are so lucky. The van will have both back side doors functioning and an a/c with new brakes, the cat wil be a lot happier once he gets home than he has been in a week and we can afford to go buy groceries, although we are still going to have to be careful about it.

I love my chosen family, my beloveds, I have been so lucky in love the last few years.

Titus and his housemates could really use a helping paw/hand. If you've got a spare buck, please consider tossing them in this pot.
We are fighting to keep our Titus from being deemed dangerous/vicious. He didn't do anything except get out of the house unsupervised!

Ah. They should put that on their front page.
I hope they can do something about the other dog too.

I may or may not have been too jazzed to sleep last night, and there may or may not have been fiercely patriotic sock knitting as a result.

'Course sock knitting tends to lead to fierceness over whatever the object of the moment is, but still!

Fiercely. (stab, wrap, pull, tug firmly) Patriotic. (repeat in other direction)

Small actions yield big results, each one like a stitch in a sock or a hat or a blanket, or a nation that refuses to go backwards.

I am so proud that we have more women in the senate now than we have ever had. We have our first disabled woman, our first openly gay person ever, who happens to be a woman, and our first Asian-American woman. We have Elizabeth Warren, who won despite being a hot headed, loud mouthed, opinionated woman who was out raised and hard fought.

Rape and hatred lost out to reason, just a little bit last night and we did find a way to shut that shit down. Not all of it, by a long shot, but some, and big men lost because people said "Hey, yanno what, that is not ok."

A biracial, moderate man got re-elected for the highest office in the land and a rich, loudly religious, anti-gay, anti-health-care, anti-reproductive rights, radically conservative white man lost.

Think about that for a minute. People didn't have to die to let us have as say in how we wanted this country to be last night. We went and put our marks down, and, by and large, it was recorded accurately and a dark skinned man proved it was not a fluke that he got elected the first time.

That is a miracle right there, my darlings. The man who spent the most money didn't win.

Tiny, small actions, $4 at a time, or $10, or $65 and people yelling on the internet and calling and walking precincts and having family discussions made for national debate with passion and reason. For the first time, more than a few people were doing their research, and earnestly trying to figure out and work on what they believed would be the best thing for all of us.

My guy won, that is an amazing and joyful thing for me today, I will feel more safe tomorrow, knowing he won. But I must say, to all of you, whether or not you voted for my guy.

I'm so proud of us. All of us.

Lookee what we did, we made each other talk, and we made each other think, and we brought new, loud and passionate and knowledgeable voices to the national table.  My 11 year old nephew is passionate about politics now, because of us and our willingness to do this noble experiment every four years. I hope he never loses that excitement, and I hope he challenges me to explain my stances, and why I am voting the way I do, every single time it comes up.

Small actions, one at a time, each one a stitch in our national fabric, each one part of what adds to our human potential, each one as important as the others, each one a foundation for the following row.

My sock will be done tonight, or tomorrow and worn with pride and love by my wyfe, who likes fierce, passionate things, like she loves this country she has adopted. Fierce, passionate, made up of small people, no two exactly the same, but all part of one beautiful nation.
