On getting married in Cambridge Mass

rsc and I just returned from a political fund raising event for Jarrett Barrios. Jarrett is my state senator, an out gay young politician who I have supported since he started running for office first for state representative. He said that he thinks that there is nothing in the decision to prevent municipalities from issuing licences and that some cities and towns may be doing it. Cambridge is one of them!

Brian Murphy, one if the Cambridge city councillors, was there and he told me he had just filed an order for next Monday's city council meeting ordering the City Clerk to start issuing licenses. There are nine councillors, we went over the list, and it is likely that there would be 6 or 7 votes for it. It might not get voted on on Monday since any councillor is allowed to "charter right" any item which delays any discussion or action for one meeting. (The next meeting is Dec 8). Brian hadn't met with the city solicitor yet to see what the legal office of the city thought. I think if they offer no legal roadblocks it is going to pass.

I just knew that when it would happen, it would Cambridge or Berkley.

So who's on your invitation list?

oh dear lord. if you're in cambridge, do i actually get to meet you?
would the world end?

The might snub the wedding; nI don't think RoJo went to their housewarming.

well good. it would be too scary, after all. esp. if Mrs. nooks were here, too, 'cause then boston would implode.

yeah, yeah--that's what you said about a cubs-red sox world series and look what happened to prevent *that* occurence. i'm sure that nature would act to make sure to prevent her own destruction.

is it my fault that the World Series sucked?

Whatever makes you happy.

No, it's Steve Bartman's fault.

Bartman? Wasn't that a dance done by that Simpsons character?

Y'know, I wasn't thinking in terms of a Great Big Party, but if I could get Will and Ann into the same room as a result,I might reconsider.

i only think of weddings as Great Big Parties, but that's me.

People who deserve to be.

well you know when i'll be in town! should i bring something formal?

I would say that the odds of our doing anything "formal" are pretty small.

probably a good thing--i don't actually own anything...wait, i've changed sizes so maybe i do...well anyway, it would wrinkle in the suitcase!

Hmmm... then you must be hand delivering *MY* invitation.
