And Portugal Makes Eight

Teh gayz in Portugal can get hitched now:  President Anibal Cavaco Silva has announced he will sign the equal-marriage law passed by that country's parliament earlier this year.  Portugal is the sixth country in Europe and eighth in the world to allow same-sex marriage nationwide, following The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, and Sweden.


Bonus:  Check out His Woofness Excellency, the Prime Minister of Portugal, José Sócrates:

Wikipedia says divorced, two kids.

I say - DILF.

Hi Russ,

I just got your comment and I read it actually 4 times. I love what you say. I also love your blog! You are probably right, but just one thing is different for me then for someone else in a situation that you may think I am in. Jess, is truly confused about love and he is oh so fucking scared and that means he teeter totters back and forth about me. He loves me he wants me ---> He loves me he is scared to want me!! If he told me he didn't love me or if he said that he wanted to move on and then didn't text or email or call or tell me everyday how much he misses me and loves me.. well then I would agree. How can I just walk away from a man who I love more then anything in the world, especially if I think he is confused and struggling and sending me these messages that are saying, I love you, don't leave me, don't go, I'm fucked up, I need you. How can I walk away from that. Instead I want to be there for him as I would be for a boyfriend or friend who is an addict or depressed or down and out and broke. I can't walk away from someone is is confused and "fucked up" as long as I still feel he loves me and wants me, at some point in a healthy way. I can pull back and go on with my life but still be there and love him back now. Does that make sense to you? This weekend will be a big "telling" for me when his ex Oliver comes to town and stays with him. If I don't hear from Jess and if Jess is distant after Oliver leaves, then perhaps I will move even further on and away and accept what you say as possibly pertaining to me. But I need to see!

Hey can you please add yourself as a FOLLOWER to my blog MY BIG ITCH (www.mybigitch.blogspot.com). I hope u will as I have to yours. I could use a friend like you. Thanks again and I hope you continue to read my blog (as I will continue to read yours as well). Steve

As I said, Steve, you're in that state of mind - as I was once long ago - where you don't see things as they really fucking are, and nobody can tell you different.

Some things we have to learn by experience if not by good counsel.

So go right on ahead, beat your head against that brick wall until its covered with brains and blood. Keep holding onto that burning pot until your hand shrivels up and falls off. Then you will be grievously wounded - but finally, wise.

Bless you buddy.
