End of weekend thoughts

I unfriended someone on FaceBook who I'd been meaning to unfriend for a while. Referring to this weekend as "the faggotizing of America" was precisely what I needed. Bye!

I didn't overlay the Pride flag over my FB userpic because I don't want to look like everyone else, because I'm not everyone else. Those who know me know I'm very happy, and I don't need to follow a crowd to show it.

I did go into a bad depression though today. I'm very sensitive to weather change and with monsoons causing a daily up-and-down of barometric pressure, I was in a bad way. I wanted nachos and Steve took me to Chuy's Mesquite Grill, which looks like a San Diego fish taco place without being in San Diego. I had a half order of chicken nachos and a Dos Equis, which cheered me up. Then I came home, continued reading Dion Fortune's book on the Kabalah and fell asleep for two hours. I don't need dinner, that's for sure.

Finally, I have to make the observation that when the Supreme Court makes a decision I like, it's invariably bad law. When they make a law whose result I hate, it is always on point. The same sex marriage decision was made very poorly, using licensing laws rather than contracts, which would have been better. Contracts must be made by people over 18, and through full faith and credit, respected nationwide. No chance of slippery slope there. Also, appealing to emotion in a SCOTUS decision is unprofessional and irrelevant. "Love" is not a reason to make law just as "national security concerns" is not a reason for dissent. (Yes, I am referencing two different laws.) In contrast, the Hobby Lobby decision was absolutely flawless law but I hate the result. I want a well-thought-out decision that makes me glad. Surely that isn't too much to ask, is it?

It all depends on what you're asking for and who you're asking, it seems.

Well, I didn't rainbowify myself on FB because the filter was much too strong. On many of my friends' pics, you could barely make out ANYTHING beneath the colours. The filter worked best when it was over a full body shot, so that the head was the least obstructed.

Yeah I unfriended a very distant cousin who was saying how the ruling meant that homosexual men would be coming for their girlfriends. Rather than argue with stupid, I clicked a button, and it went away.
