Gay marriage passes in Minnesota House →
A pivotal vote Thursday in the Minnesota House positioned that state to become the 12th in the country to allow gay marriages and the first in the Midwest to pass such a law out of its Legislature. Way to go, Minnesota! <3 Also, now I’ve been forewarned what my family will be complaining about in a couple weeks when my cousin gets married. Why can’t they just shut up?

Epilogue: Designs for the Display of Information
Design is choice. The theory of the visual display of quantitative information consists of principles that generate design options and that guide choices among options. The principles should not be applied rigidly or in a peevish spirit; they are not logically or mathematically certain; and it is better to violate any principle than to place graceless or inelegant marks on paper. Most principles...
Aaron watches Harry Potter - "the Half Blood one"
Aaron: Snape was a bad guy all along? Effin A.
Me: Which are you watching now?
Aaron: The half blood one.
Me: I cried.
Me: And convinced myself that dumbledore would wizard himself back to life.
Aaron: DUMBLEDORE DIES?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Me: …you just watched the half blood prince.
Aaron: I'm WATCHING the half blood prince
Me: Where the fuck are you?
Aaron: Like 20 min in. But like the first scene was with that Beatrix chick and the blonde douche's wife.
Me: Um… I'm just kidding. Everything is cool. Dumbledore lives forever. He's magic.

Aaron watches Harry Potter - "the Phoenix one"
: Is Moody's broom a chopper? Awesome. There's a reason he's my role model.
: "You don't have to whip your wands out at every opportunity!" Hehehehehe. Teenagers.
: Fudge=bad. Got it.
: I want chocolate for some reason.
: Dark foreboding music. Again. Something good is about to happen, I can feel it
: Wizards don't know how to use subways? Seriously? Platform 9 and 3/4 is simple, but turnstiles? Noooo….
: Harry found a comb. Good on you Harry.
: PUPPY! I want a wizard dog.
: Dude really needs to get nose. What if he needs glasses?
: I don't like the stepford wife witch. She's a bitch. And wears all pink. And she's a conservative.
: Harry yelling at Ron? Must be Harry's time of the month.
: Standardized teaching for wizards. Great. School boards suck even in wizard-world.
: Three spoonfuls of sugar for one cup of tea? You ain't that sweet Ms. Stepford Wife witch. Also, way too much pink. And commemorative cat plates? Really?
: Luna is a fruit loop.
: Never let politicians take over education. Ever.
: I think this whole thing is an allegory for creationists taking over school boards. No wonder the Christian Right was in such a tizzy over banning Harry Potter.
: Did a zit just pop on the camera lens? Grossssssss
: Your patronum is a rabbit? Really? I'm sure that'll do a great job of protecting you with...its large, biting teeth? Does it at least come with a hand grenade?
: "Dumbledore's got style." Yes he does. Fabulous, fabulous style.
: TESTING IRREGULARITY!
: If you're going to get expelled, might as well set off fireworks in the cafeteria.
: Light sabers are still cooler than wands
: Chuck Taylors!
Aaron watches Harry Potter - "the Goblet one"
: Is that that sparkly vampire?
: My tent is bigger on the inside too.
: Oh look. Harry got hurt. Again.
: HA! I made a Dr. Who reference and then Dr. Who shows up. I'm a badass.
: Was Dr. Who's spell something about Mordor? I think they're mixing up fantasy worlds. Time lords, wizards and hobbitses.
: I like these choreographed acrobatic entrances. I think I'm going to start doing that whenever I enter a room.
: That minister guy looks like Neville Chamberlain with Hitler 'stache. Interesting combination. #HistoryMinorFTW
: Oh what I would give to be the only wand at an all-girls wizardry school. Mmmmmmm…
: Scary foreboding music. Always a good sign.
: I bet the blonde kid did it. He's evil. That little snot.
: Awww...Harry and Ron got in a lover's quarrel.
: He's got a ferret in his pants. Awkward.
: Harry needs a fucking comb. Seriously.
: Spits out his drink when a pretty girl looks at him. I wish I were that smooth.
: 'Well-mannered frivolity' is really only the third best type of frivolity.
: Neville is wearing patent leather shoes with pajamas. Classy ass motherfucker.
: "Hermione -- you're a girl...". I'm really learning some new tips on how to pick up the ladies.
: "Take my waist. Now." - things I wish girls would say to me more often. Or ever.
: Are they playing a Billy Idol cover at the wizard's ball?
: Hagrid cops feel. I'm not even mad bro.
: Neville staying up late. With Jenny Weasley. Way to play out of your league Neville.
: I'm pretty sure Harry just got sexually assaulted by a ghost.
: I could grow fins. If I wanted to.
: I like the one-eyed, one-legged bastard. He drinks a lot. He's a good role model.
: International competition involving Britain, France, and...Hungary? Not Germany, but Hungary. Still a little sore over that "trying to conquer all of Europe" thing, are we?
: A shrubbery maze. Is this the part where Jack Nicholson shows up?
: Dude ain't got no nose.
: That blonde kid is a douche canoe. And so is his dad.
: No nose guy needs to trim his fingernails. Seriously guy, gross.
: I think Harry has a crush on the sparkly vampire.
: *Had. Had a crush.
: Uh oh. One-eyed dude is the bad guy??? But he's my role model!
: Oh ok. Not the bad guy. Dr. Who is. And he's licking his lips quite frequently.
