Bathia_Mapes: Wish I could be there to cheer them on. :-)
Rincewind53: Bathia_Mapes: Wish I could be there to cheer them on. :-)The City of Seattle retweeted you!
Rincewind53: Hahaha one of the new couples with three kids, the older sister pointed at the younger brother and said he likes Twilight. Way to sell out your brother!
Miss Stein: Bathia_Mapes: Wish I could be there to cheer them on. :-)I ought to be down there cheering them on, but instead I'm in my warm robe, drinking coffee, with a pug asleep on my lap. But I'm there with them in spirit.
quatchi: WooT! ^__^Good times are good!This is what moral evolution looks like, kids. Glad someone brought a camera.That all cheerfully noted, I still really don't get the rice thing.Why rice, why throw? What this is, I don't even...This has always confused me but somehow never enough to ever bother googling for an answer.Anyone? Some animistic thing? Paganistic throwback perhaps?
Bathia_Mapes: http://www.flickr.com/groups/marriedinseattle/pool/ Some awesome pictures of newlywed couples.
Rincewind53: Bathia_Mapes: http://www.flickr.com/groups/marriedinseattle/pool/ Some awesome pictures of newlywed couples.Dan Savage's family is adorable:[farm9.staticflickr.com image 640x425]
Bathia_Mapes: I think little kids in suits are freakin' adorable.
Bathia_Mapes: It's a symbol of good luck, fertility and abundance.
Rincewind53: Dan Savage's family is adorable
quatchi: Bathia_Mapes: It's a symbol of good luck, fertility and abundance.Thanks, That makes more sense to me. As in "some"./Still filing 'rice throwing' under "people are weird".Rincewind53: Dan Savage's family is adorableTotes. Thanks for sharing that. Dan's 'Savage Love' column is still the first thing I hit up when I pick up a Georgia Straight newspaper and I'm very happy for him, his family and all the other families like him on this most auspicious and long sought day.Not sure which is making me happier at this moment the thought of all these newly married couples plighting their troths en masse with such obvious love or the thought of Frothy Santorum somewhere in his basement curled up into a fetal ball sobbing uncontrollably.Their both so good it's hard to choose.
quatchi: *goes out, comes back in*"they're", even.Yeesh
Bathia_Mapes: The Santorum bit has me cackling like a witch. :-D
Bathia_Mapes: Heh! It's okay. We won't be too harsh on you.
Miss Stein: This picture makes my heart happy. You gentlemen go with your awesome selves.
quatchi: Bathia_Mapes: Heh! It's okay. We won't be too harsh on you.TY but it's Bob the Flower I truly fear. I don't want to ever get him angry again.*shudders*/I don't like him when he's angry.
zerkalo: To be fair, Seattle City Hall is a beautiful new buildingwhich can be dusty, I understand
jehovahs random negro: Pathetic. A celebration of moral depravity with the full support of government in direct violation of the First Amendment. We're shredding the Constitution and dancing while this once great country burns.Pick up your guns, boys and girls. The Democrats are just getting warmed up.
Miss Stein: There's also a huge crowd outside City Hall, cheering each newly wedded couple, handing them flowers and throwing rice as they walk down the steps. It's so beautiful to watch. I love my blue state.
Hobodeluxe: would have been a great week to be in Seattle. First the pot prohibition ending and now this. + 2 for liberty and freedom
DorkusThe2nd: Am I bad because seeing two men kissing makes me want to gag?
Bathia_Mapes: Miss Stein: This picture makes my heart happy. You gentlemen go with your awesome selves.I saw that on fark the other day and it put a big old happy smile on my face. I hope these gentlemen are amongst those getting married today.
Bathia_Mapes: The first couple that was married today. [pbs.twimg.com image 600x803]
