Yabu: kirakira

Maine!

I already loved Maine, but now I love it even more: Maine, fifth state to allow gay marriage

"This new law does not force any religion to recognize a marriage that falls outside of its beliefs. It does not require the church to perform any ceremony with which it disagrees. Instead, it reaffirms the separation of Church and State," Governor Baldacci said. Separation of church and state FTW.

...

In addition to reaffirming my love for Maine, though, today I also had one of those "Oh my god, I love New York," moments. Where else can you find a sketchy wig shop run by rabbis, a store that sells every kind of lace you could ever imagine, and a giant comic store, all within a five-minute walk of each other?

Now that I've got my Yuuta wig, though, I really should start studying for finals...
