its not like me to use my blog as a political platform but i think this is one situation where i'd like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to my friend jay and his partner, justin - residents of DC - who, based on what i've read on jay's status updates, have now been married IN THE US. i remember when they met, i used to hang out at the mesh with jay (and other friends) every thursday night where justin worked as a bartender. i'm sure justin doesn't remember me, but i remember him. jay always had great taste in men. :) justin was quite the looker.
anyway, just moments ago, jay posted a picture on facebook of a gift from the DC superior court marriage bureau and i think, in this case, his picture is worth 1,000 words. i hope he doesn't mind me using it!
