Cheers! Now if only my state weren't so stupid, but I suppose there's no fixing that.

Well, you made a start by voting out Rick Santorum. That has to count for something. ;-)

Wonderful news. And cool that Arnold respects the court's decision. :)

unfortunately, it doesn't matter. clinton made DOMA the law of the land in all US states and territories. every state that passes a marriage law contradictory to DOMA is just performing some legal kabuki to get this stuff before the supremes, to determine whether DOMA passes constitutional muster.

i see you in my ljtoys stats all the time. maybe it's a false positive from from some flist. if not then say hi or something? i like making new friends. =P

I just checked your profile page, and I have no idea why my name is turning up in your ljtoys stats. We have no friends, interests, or communities in common apart from the standard lj maintenance and news ones. Very strange.

I have a friend who tracks hits on her posts through ljtoys; I'll have to ask her if she's had anything like this happen to her.

interesting, and sorry to have bothered you or intruded in any way. *embarrassed* usually when i do that i get a nice result, sometimes a new friend. <333 once before it was totally random like this. i wonder what the cause is? anyway, i'm sorry to have been a bother. peace, and safe travels in cyberspace. ;)

Hey, there's no need to apologize! I didn't mean to sound abrupt, and if I did, I'm sorry. It just didn't seem that we had much in common, and I'm not really much of a presence on lj these days. But I'm certainly not against making new friends, so please feel free to read and comment. When I have a little more time (and don't have to worry about someone walking by my desk and noticing that I'm working on something other than an Excel spreadsheet, lol) I'll take a look at some of your posts. :-)

it's okay. and you didn't seem abrupt. i just felt like an idiot. and true, we don't have much in common. but most people who read my lj are kids (or kids to me anyway, 20somethings) since i'm in some fandoms which skew quite young. so, i'm always intrigued when it seems like a 'grown-up' is visiting. btw, probably best not to look at my lj from work. much of it is NOT worksafe. i swear like an angry drunken trucker, and often post risque old clips and music videos. ;-)

Duly noted. Will check out your posts from home with a flashlight under the bedcovers. ;-)

Actually, I wouldn't be able to get to the audiovisual part of your posts from work anyway, as our IS department (I work for a large company) blocks access to things like that.
