good evening y’all! today was a really weird day – on one hand i’m super excited & elated about new president-elect barack obama – but on the other hand i’m so very disappointed, sad, and angry about proposition 8 (aka proposition hate) passing in the state of california which is unfortunately a huge step backward! i can’t believe that what the high courts deemed as unfair & discriminatory was allowed to be voted on by the public – when was the last time you remember getting to vote on revoking somebody else’s rights?!? equality is a right – not a privilege! (people who hide behind the bible or claim this is all in the name of religion disgust me to no end) and finally please don’t even get me started on all the millions of dollars poured into this effort – it’s a total shame – there’s seriously many more important & pressing issues to focus on other than denying gay people the right to marry (and like marriage is so fucking sacred & lily white in this country to begin with…ugh) i hope & pray this somehow works out – this is definitely not the end of this…far from it (we can start by signing this petition – thanks to my longtime pal melissa for the heads up – she has been fervent in her fight against prop 8)
phew – enough about that – right now i actually can’t even think about the issue anymore – i’m so over hearing about the election already – i need to tune it all out – at least for tonight! thankfully tomorrow night i’m heading down to dodger stadium to catch madonna on her sticky & sweet tour which i’m hoping will provide a much needed fun diversion – plus i took off from work on friday since i know i’ll be way tired! word also broke earlier this evening that both britney spears and justin timberlake will be joining her on stage tomorrow – oh my word – this could be the reunion we’ve all been dying to see – i can’t wait to see what transpires!
while madge is out finishing up her world tour – it looks like her soon to be ex-hubby guy ritchie is really enjoying himself – maybe a little too much – he appeared to be a bit drunk & tipsy while leaving his london pub the punch bowl after celebrating guy fawkes night in the pictures posted below – yet he’s still way adorable – i think madonna is a fool for ditching him (for alex rodriguez of all people – ugh!) anyways i didn’t intend this post to be a rant on prop 8 but i’m glad i got it off my chest – i feel a drop better after going off for a bit – thanks for listening! popbytes over & out for tonight…xoxo
