So no big surprise, the constitutional amendment banning gay marriage passed, 76%-24% statewide. Travis county (mine) passed it 56%-24%, which is sort of comforting, but 7 of the other 9 counties in Austin passed it with at least 70%. Four of those with at least 80%- the largest margin was Coryell county- 87%-13%. Thanks, folks of Coryell.

Tarrant county (where my parents live) passed it 77%-23%.

I'd like to hope my mother saw this on the news and felt at least a little bad.

Well, it isn't as if I couldn't see it coming a mile away.

How goes the party prep?

I don't know that "party" is really the right word to use if I'm just taking her to dinner at O'Charley's (her choice) and probably to Joseph-Beth to get her a book before we come back to my place and hang out.

But the planning's going fine.

Good! Something ELSE to expend my rage on!

<--I'm very sorry too. I hate people.

Like I said before, people are ignorant. Sorry kiddo.

Yeah, people suck. But one of these days they'll realize how stupid they are.

You should be packing! :D

Kinda hard to pack when I'm not sure if we're moving the stuff to storage or to an actual place that we're gonna live.

Lubbock passed it by 83%. My city shames me.

It's so frustrating, you know? Even though I knew this would be the outcome, I have to admit a little tiny part of me was hoping at least one county would defeat it.

But it will turn around one day. Hopefully in our lifetimes.

Another reason I hate Texas. I think if it weren't for you, I wouldn't be able to say anything good about the state.

Darlin, there's no state that's good on this issue. 39 of the 50 have adopted DOMA as state law (even yours). Hell, New Hampshire had a state law prohibiting it before DOMA even came along.
