Anniversaries, or, what we remember

FontFolly.Net: Anniversaries, or, what we remember

I mentioned earlier that Michael used to say that he considered NorWesCon our anniversary, because he was even worse about forgetting the date of our first date (which is one of the dates I tried to remember as an anniversary) than I am, and neither of us could ever remember the date of our commitment ceremony without digging out the paperwork for our domestic partnership registration.

Michael posing with his Easter basket.

When I first met Michael, I was part of a small group hosting a room party at NorWesCon. He came into the room, gave me a big infectious smile, and said, “Hi!

So we didn’t go to the Northwest Science Fiction (NorWesCon) again this year. Quick background: I started attending the convention back in 1987, after being envious of friends who attended the previous few years, and I didn’t miss a single one for the next 25 years. Michael and I…

"I don’t know how to love him!"

“I don’t know how to love him!”

Muppet Christ, Superstar is a parody depicting what it might sound like if the Muppets did a version of Jesus Christ, Superstar. Christo Graham sings all the parts. His Kermit is a bit of a stretch, but his Miss Piggy is pretty spot on.

I nearly died while listening to Miss Piggy Sining “I Don’t Know How to Love Him.”

The songs are available for download from Bandcamp. Or you can listen to them…

Wanna egg?

It’s nearly Easter! And it’s Friday once more. Here’s a collection of news and other things that struck me as worthy of being shared:

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson (the first openly gay Episcopal bishop) to lead the closing prayer.
