Bring on the Big D


Today is a great day. Today is the kind of day that makes you sigh with relief and jump for joy and thank your lucky stars, kiss babies and climb trees smack your boyfriend's ass. Today marks the official end of my best friend's first marriage. It's been over for 2 years now, just not according to the Commonwealth of Virgina (what the hell is a commonwealth, anyway?) It was a bad one. It wasn't always bad, but it was bad more than it was good and her ex isn't the kind of guy who puts forth any effort to work on things. She tried, he failed her, she tried again, he failed her, she tried countless times doing everything she should have and he failed her, he failed her, he failed her. And now he's out of the picture. He has no more reason to stress her out. His days of busting in and casting a dark pall over her happy days are over.

She's found a new man. A real man. He's Canadian, but we try not to hold that against him. He treats her the way she should be treated, he adores her, and he wants her to be herself. I love seeing the way he looks at her even when he's being goofy and gross and telling stupid jokes. He always loves her. He loves her when he's irritated with her. He loves her when she's cranky. He loves her when she's too tired to take the dogs out. He loves her when they're both happy and when one of them is in a piss-poor mood. He know's she's wicked smart and he loves that about her. That's the way it should be. It's awesome. And luckily for her ex, everything is on track for a wonderful wedding in a couple weeks. I say lucky for her ex because if he would have done one more dumbass thing to delay this final paperwork I would have fed him to the gators. No questions asked and no looking back. I wouldn't have even felt bad about it. (I really, really, really dislike him. I mean it. I really do.)

So, congratulations are in order for the newly divorced and soon to be married K-Dawg. She's wonderful and I love her dearly. She's like family and she deserves to be as happy as possible.

More congratulations are in order for friends in VA... Jess is engaged! Her beau (whoa, who am I using words like beau?) popped the question and she made him a very happy man by saying yes. I can't wait for next July! They have a great story and it's only going to get better. Maxie's engaged, too. He took his girl to a mountain top and he said the day was perfect. Things are working out all over the place. That's what I like to see.

And OH - If you're in New York or you will be soon you should go see this play because it's great and my dear friend, MT, is in it and he's fabulous. click me! And - there's nudity. How can you go wrong?
