Seriously, Iowa!

So, I'm a very, very, very ardent supporter of marriage equality and as a New Yorker, I've been really excited to find out that my home state is very close to granting equal rights to every couple in the state.

But I had no idea that IOWA, a state that sounds like a yawn (no offense, Iowans), would beat us to the punch! Their State Supreme Court ruled - unanimously - that denying marriage rights to homosexual couples is unconstitutional. It is. I've written about it before on HuffPo on several occasions. But I'm so happy for Iowa and its previously segregated citizens, and it's a very good day to be an American.

Other stuff:

*Five more workdays until my week off!
*I'm getting more (ink) work done on my back, which will look awesome but suck to have done. (It will both tickle and be painful. Boooo.)
*I have officially started my screenplay! Finally! I started outlining it last August, finished the outline in October, and it had been sitting in my head for months before I finally bucked up this week and started writing. I also wrote three sketches that I really like and have ideas for at least three more.

You know when someone tells a joke and then the moment after is awkwardly long and silent?

That's how I feel about my last post. Generally, you don't want to make jokes about tragic death and then follow it up with nothing. Which is what I did. Sorry about that. I'll try to be better about updating, all none of you.

In other news, I would have totally posted this had I not been so busy at work (NGthPTH - I think that's how you spell a snort), but the funny people who are employed with Jimmy Fallon beat me to it (and also read Huffington Post's comedy page).

Late Night With Jimmy Fallon: Ohio Man Busted for Riding Motorized Barstool Drunk, a phrase I think is actually redundant. Is there any other circumstance under which to drive a motorized barstool?
