3 Things I Love Today- Joe Biden, Petey and Aubey's Costumes, 10-11-12

1. "I accept that in my personal life, but I refuse to impose it on equally devout Christians, Muslims, and Jews. I refuse to impose that on others up like my friend here, the Congressman. I do not believe that we have a right to tell other people, women, that they can't control their body. It's a decision between them and their doctor."

This is the freaking key to my belief system. You NEVER have the right to impose your beliefs on someone else's private choices about their own body. You don't. If you can find me a Bible Verse where Jesus Christ says "take control of others bodies, seek out power, and hurt others" I will happily change my mind. I would never, in a million years, vote for someone, especially a man, who feels that their rights (and control) always  outweighs the personal decisions of women. Joe Biden is the bomb. At the same time, I didn't think Ryan was a trainwreck at all, and Martha Raddatz moderated in a way that in general I thought kept the conversation on track and not trainwreck-y at all. I don't have any huge digs at Ryan. I just know that I could never vote for their platform.

2. Helping pick my niece and nephew's Halloween costumes- I think Pam deserves some kind of laid back award for being willing to share the fun jobs like these, but Elizabeth and I had a great time going through options. They are the two cutest kids in the world anyway, so it's not hard to get something they will look really cute in! Probably the highlight of an otherwise kind of nerve-wracking day.
3. Today's date-10/11/12. This will never happen again, so that's kind of special.
