I find myself frustrated by the lack of tolerance.

From a very early age my mother showed me tolerance is the true way to be. Around us people were discriminating against someone in the community, but my mother welcomed him into our lives. I remember clearly my "Uncle Mac", someone I remember fondly, someone who introduced me to the joys of beets :). It just happened he was African.

At the time, I was under 5, so this fact meant nothing to me. My mother did an amazing job of shielding me from the prejudice around us, and teaching me that everyone has a right to respect.

So, moving to 2008. Here I am in a country that calls itself progressive, yet it blocks something wonderful from two people. I come from a country where marriage is possible between two women or two men. But what really pisses me off is that most of those people voting yes on 8 just don't understand, don't know, didn't take the fucking time to learn! *sigh*

My mother taught me to be tolerant and respectful of those around me, and to accept I wouldn't always understand. PLEASE teach your children the same, let's not let ignorance rule the World.

TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM TREAT YOU! I am pretty sure most religions say something similar. I live my life this way, I try to be nice to everyone I meet, treat everyone with respect. Please do the same.

This brought a well needed smile to my face. I am tired and sick, and am coughing myself silly :\ But this has me laughing between coughs :)

Uneventful

Well, with no fireworks, today I became a home owner. Close of Escrow happened!

Within just over a week I'll be walking into my home and wondering "what next" :) I already have the answer to most, painting, buying, packing, moving, sleeping :)

Home owner

Today should be such a wonderful day for me, I am basically now a home owner again. But I can't help but think about how I can't call my mother and tell her the news. And I remember the last time I kissed her, when I said my goodbye.

I know she was proud of me, and if it's possible, she's looking down on me and smiling.

Razor help

I need a new one. The one I have is annoying and i miss so many hairs. I just found another at the corner of my mouth that is driving me nuts, I can't shave it because I'll wake Chris!

Grrrr

Anyone out there have a good electric razor they'd recommend?


P.S. Wet shaving gives me very nasty razor burn, even after years of trying different razors, creams, etc...
