Then I got this crazy idea to make over a 100 8's for all the peeps that wave signs with me. I brought some over to the call center as well last night for the 40 some odd people that were making cold calls for Prop 8 support. Bless them, I could never do it.

On to Prop 8... I did some more sign waving tonight. I have to say that people are really passionate about this issue. I got some middle fingers, plenty of heads shaking at me, thumbs down, explitives, name calling, it was brutal out there. But don't worry, I will be back for more tomorrow night.
Eric, who you all know is obsessed with everything Apple, had this to say today...
I was upset with Apple this past week for coming out publicly against Prop 8. I am writing this on a mac and am a very loyal Apple customer. Their official press release is calling Proposition 8 a "Civil Rights Issue" and I strongly disagree with that. I already fired off an e-mail to their public relations office but I wanted to share what I think is the best Prop 8 video I have seen thus far.
Civil Rights Issue?

Funny thing is, Ethan is more excited about getting dressed up for Halloween than getting the candy. Thankfully.

... I have yet to find the marker. It's washable, which was a relief, and I haven't found any walls covered in black marker, but where the heck is the marker? Ethan would have never done this. He hates getting his hands messy.

The kids don't get the concept of just putting their faces in the holes.
My mom found these pumpkin face kits that are just like Mr Potato Head but for pumpkins. Ethan loved it. No knives needed! (Found at Target)

Last night we celebrated C's birthday with Diane & Ed because Diane is heading to Omaha today to visit Julie. We decided to go to the Irvine Spectrum for some dinner and fun! Dinner was at Johnny Rocket's. Cohen didn't sit still for the entire meal. He was jumping on the padded bench, sliding under the table to go to the other side, throwing the Splenda packets, creating a total scene. C has really embraced this idea of being terrible at age 2, Ethan waited until he was 3.
Then we headed over the to carousel. C was not diggin it. He cried the first two times around and then finally warmed up to it on the third go round. Ethan was enthusiatic enough for the both of them. What E was a little nervous about was the ferris wheel. C was all for it and E had to be convinced. Notice the nervous look below. He kept asking, when is this over and how are we going to get out?
On the way home I was trying to remember even the slightest detail of Cohen's birth. I couldn't remember if I had arrived to the hospital the night before the induction or just showed up the morning of the 11th. I also couldn't remember the time he was born. It was really frustrating me. I could remember his weight, but the rest was gone. Erased for some reason. My memory has suffered greatly since having kids. Too bad I didn't have this blog when C was born or else everything would be there for me to reference. If anyone remembers - I would appreciate it.
Naughty birthday boy.

A refund check addressed to me that was sent to my old address in WI. It was put in this clear envelope from the USPS in order to be transferred to my new address in CA. Apparently, it was half eaten by a very hungry postal worker and then regurgitated. Mid-chewing the worker must have looked over at her stack of clear envelopes which reminded her that "she cares", thus feeling obligated to live up to her code of caring, she spit out my delicious check and sent it to me. Why she couldn't have eaten one of the twenty pre-approved credit applications I get on a daily basis is beyond me. I guess real money tastes better than make believe money - and I totally agree.
Behold a peanut butter and jelly sandwich was prepared to be made into a delicious morsel of satisfying grub for lunch...or maybe dinner...or maybe even breakfast. One piece of bread was laid upon the counter and in a few swift motions was smothered by delectable smooth peanut butter whilst the other slice of bread was smothered by mouth-watering raspberry jam. When the bread with the peanut butter and the bread with the jam were placed together as one it was approved of God and called a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Now behold there were some who were absolutely in love with peanut butter and had no interest in jam so both slices of bread were covered with Skippy. And then there were some who couldn't resist the mouth watering taste of the jam therefore both pieces of bread were soaked with Smuckers. WHO HATH EARS TO HEAR, LET HIM HEAR. And those reading this blog post said unto K.C., why speakest thou unto us in parables? And K.C. quoting Jesus said, "Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given." And it came to pass that for some odd reason those who made peanut butter and peanut butter sandwiches along with those who made jelly and jelly sandwiches wished with all their heart that they could call their sandwiches "peanut butter and jelly sandwiches" and fought and fought and fought (I could go on forever) for the right to call their sandwiches "peanut butter and jelly sandwiches". I say unto you all ye ends of the earth, WO WO WO unto ye residents of CA...and all ye ends of the earth... who wish to call those peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!!! For they are not so! If ye make a "like" spreaded sandwich ye are not permitted to call it a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. To you it may be delicious and you can enjoy the benefits of the sandwich thereof but IT IS NOT A PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY SANDWICH! "They seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they UNDERSTAND....For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I (the Savior...not K.C.) should heal them." (VOTE YES ON PROP 8)

I believe that marriage is a sacred commitment made between a man and woman. It is a deeply religious word that should remain as it is depicted and defined in the Bible. I also believe that all people are created equal and should be treated as such. California already performs civil unions that grant homosexuals the same rights as married couples and I feel this is sufficient based on my religious beliefs.
Eight years ago California voters passed Prop 22 (with 61% of the vote), which prevented California from recognizing same-sex marriages. In May of this year, the California Supreme Court overturned Prop 22, legalizing same-sex marriage. It is now up to the voters to determine one last time, that marriage be defined between a man and woman only.
Vote Yes on November 4th!
