I missed Halloween.

Heavy sigh.

I have been known to get requests from neighborhood parents in regard to my costume choice. I really like Halloween.

But today I was driving all over Fremont, California checking out polling stations, deciding which ones would be better for visibility, sign holders. It was a long day and now I have to type up my notes.

I miss my kids. I miss my wife.

And for my outrage of the day? The DNC did NOT give any money to the No on 8 campaign. None. Nada. Zip.

Makes you wonder if they are more concerned with distancing themselves from us queers than justice and equality. Personally, I'm sick of it.

Sara, Just a brief, unabashed, fan letter. Among a myriad of other reasons having to do with intellect, wit, idealism, and steadfast wonderful "Momism", I love the humanity and genuineness which permeates your work. As my partner Sallie would say,"you are definitly one of the sharpest hoes in the shed"

Thank you!

I love being a hoe.
