Places Everyone!

Today's the day that blogging cyberstalker extraordinaire Coaster Punchman and his longtime love Poor George walk down the aisle in sunny California ahead of a looming weather change due to the threat of Proposition 8, an initiative to ban gay marriage. While I want them to happen, I'm hopeful Prop 8 won't.  Here's how you may be able to help.

They're a couple of the loveliest fellows around and will be married by their good friend and blogging wonder woman Melinda June ensuring it's a special day all around.  

May their best gifts include many more happy years together, all the fish tacos they can eat and the defeat of Prop 8.  

For those about to wed, we salute you!

I was wondering if anyone believes in destiny?

Esther said...

Awww, what a sweet tribute. Mazel tov to the happy couple. I just sent along my best fishes!

Jess Wundrun said...

Congratulations on the nuptials, guys. Now when are you going to have a baby?

Tanya Espanya said...

Why weren't we invited?

FranIAm said...

Tanya- Dale and I are invited. I guess you did not make the cut? Hmmm.

Well in fairness, Dale was invited with a guest and he asked me.

You understand- right?

Dale said...

Can you rephrase the question Anonymous? Otherwise I'm destined to have to read your whole site.

They'll love your fishes Esther, so kind, so generous!

I bet Tanya would sell them her baby for the right price Jess!

Fran is about to answer your question Tanya but only because she beat me to answering. It's so nice here!

Hi Fran, isn't it lovely here? You know about the sleeping arrangements right?

I would like to purchase a basic book on history for all people against gay marriage. It would detail how many years ago, people thought women, Asians, the Irish, black people, left-handed folks, and people who didn't speak proper Greek (the original definition of "barbarian") weren't worthy of any rights.

And then that book would describe what we think of those people now. Many of the words would be similar to the ones they used to describe those groups initially. And it would end with that Vonnegut line from Rosewater: "There's only one rule that I know of, babies: goddamnit, you've got to be kind."

Allison said...

Lovely tribute. Congratulations to them both! :)

Chris said...

Congratulations and Other Good Stuff.

Mosied over here from The Urban Recluse..... Nice blog!

Love pistols-at-dawn's comment.

Andi said...

Hurrah! A lovely toast indeed.

Cormac Brown said...

Congratulations to my favorite New York, er, San Diegoan couple and let's hope that Anderson Cooper doesn't try to pull a Dustin Hoffman, ala "The Graduate."

Cormac Brown said...

And look everybody, it's a face from the past! Why, it's good old Jim Crow riding the Proposition 8 Train.

Wake up, everybody, It's "separate, but equal" all over again!


Franki said...

I still don't get why anyone wants to get married, but I do believe in equal opportunity misery. ;)


Dale said...

Ain't it grand S-Dad?

Such an excellent comment/sentiment and it really sums everything up beautifully Pistols.

I'll say it again Allison - ain't it grand?!

OGS is very important too Chris, you're right.

Hi WordTryst, it was an excellent comment!

Hurrah, hooray and how do you do Andi?!

You have to watch Anderson Cooper at all times Cormac - it's those eyes! You also have to watch Jim Crow.

You have to reread Pistols at Dawn's comment Franki but I laughed at yours too.

X. Dell said...

That's good news. Let's hope that the state of California won't force CP and PG to continue living in sin.

Dale said...

Indeed X. Dell, California should do the right thing.

I'm afraid to click onto that spam commenter's website. Why chance ruining my day?

Cormac, was Anderson going to scream "CEEEEPEEEEE!" or "POOOOOOR GEEEOOOOOORRRGE!"? And thank you for making the Jim Crow comparison.

Dale, thanks for posting this. I'm finally coming back to Earth and will be blogging again soon ---- after I spend the next week volunteering every night on a "No on 8" phone bank. And this is how I have to spend my honeymoon - making sure my marriage will stick!!

Here in California, every night they run these ads on television about how they taught about gay marriage in a school in Massachussetts.

Shouldn't these people be spending this money on more clothes for Sarah Palin or something? I would guess that clothes from straight designers are even more expensive than regular old designer clothes.

I just want those ads to stop. I worry a bit more that public schools actually teach kids to read and do math and they pay teachers a living wage.

Dale said...

Manning the lines are you Coaster Punchman? Excellent. I tried to rent a bubble to float in to your ceremony on to sing 'couldn't be happier...' to you both but I kept popping the damned things. I wish all good things for you and George.

Teacher teach me, hmm, sounds like a song hiding in there somewhere Chancelucky. I can't believe there's such a movement trying to take a step backwards and polluting your tv at the same time.
