MotherfuckingMaine

I'm exhausted but jubilant. I love it here. I feel as though I am doing good work. Highlights, because I want to go to bed as I must be at the office at 9 am tomorrow:

- I walk five hours a day, minimum, to go speak with supporters of gay marriage in Maine, urging them to vote early since the polls are 48 to 48% right now. It's a turn out game at this point. All the gays must vote.

- They made me a Field Manager on my second day on the job. This looks infinitely sexier than "Paid Canvasser" on a resume and I get to tell people what to do.

- The women I am staying with are WONDERFUL. My first day on the job, Faith was waiting up for me in the kitchen afterward with hot cocoa, hugs, and chats. Janet showed up in the middle of the chat, had a glass of scotch, and swore like a sailor about all the crazy fuckers who are voting yes on question 1. I wish they were my lesbian moms. They're amazing, and I can already tell that I'm going to cry when I leave them.

- My coworkers are all hilarious and wonderful. I love going in to work in the mornings.

- I got my first paycheck today. Must go get groceries.

I love life. I'm almost sad I'll only be here for a couple weeks. But then California beckons. Fabulous.

Enforced fitness, and being paid for it, how fab it that? Everything about it sounds wonderful. I have always fancied going to Maine, I'm sure it's really lovely.

I'm so happy that you're happy woman! I can just see you going door to door. That must feel amazing to be making a difference.

If, on your way to CA, you make a pit stop in AZ, let me know. It'd be great and recharging to see you. I'm in tempe, aka Phoenix area.

Aw. I wish I had lesbian moms like that. But then again, hopefully one day I will BE one of those lesbian moms, so I can wait.

I'm glad you're having such a good time! Keep us updated. :)
