It is official. Emily and I went to Social Security in Baltimore to change our last names yesterday. We officially both have two last names, after we both added each others last names. I am so happy about my new last name. FYI, no hyphen, just a space. Thank you very much. It was amazingly easy and the woman at the office was incredibly friendly and helpful. We were in and out in less than 30 minutes. We did get married over a year ago, but it’s better late than never. In reality we waited this long because we thought we’d need court orders for me changing my name. It sounded like it would be horrific for me to do that. Amazing how sexist the rules are for men to change their name and women simply sign on the dotted line. But I think that’s only on paper. A great early birthday gift, indeed.

In other news, what the fuck is up with Bush Jr’s new plan for sending MORE troops to Iraq? I don’t get it. Maybe I am not a politician, but one would think one would have learned from the past about forcing other countries a democracy. It’s simply a suicide plan. Sorry Bush, I can’t agree with your so-called plan for victory.

In more positive and inventive news, the iPhone and iTV from Apple look amazingly useful. The iPhone, as expected, looks awesome. Hopefully by the time the prices come down on it, other networks will be taking advantage of it. $499 is a little steep for a mobile phone, but I guess those Treos aren’t much cheaper and for what it does, it’s design and inclusion of OSX, it’s probably worth it.

two tubes are better than oneSo lately everyone I know is getting married. It’s quite the phenomenon. I loved when Prince got married and then he annulled the marriage cos he didn’t want to be all institutionalized, so to speak. That was bad ass. But seriously, I think about marriage a lot. Who will it be. Will I be one? Does getting married help anything? Other than with legalities? Can you do the same things with out that piece of paper? I was never big on diamonds. I think they are too showey. Fuck ’em. If a diamond is a girl’s best friend that girl has got some problems. So I was talking to an old friend last nite and she told me her three dreams. It was cute, cos she was embarrassed. One was to have a house and the other to be a school teacher. Now how is that to be embarrassing. I think those are very attainable and realistic dreams. And there is no reason that this can’t happen. I just want a house. I want to raise my children and run my small label on the side. I am working on the label, but the children have a way to go. Also I want lots of yard for the children so they can run around. None of this growing up in the city. So now all i need is a wife. Don’t think I am getting married anytime soon. But at the same time I really need something new in my life that is full of creativity and emotion and life. Gimme life or gimme death.
