06:30 pm: End of Ida
Yes, more storm, but not as bad as it was in the Gulf. I had my B12 taken today and have done a lot of little things around the condo.

The DC Council has adjusted their same-sex marriage bill so that religious organizations don't have to hire out halls and such, but the Catholic church is upset because they'd have to give benefits to same-sex partners if they give them to different-sex partners (or other things like that). They're threatening to stop running some of DC's social services and the council isn't sure why they'd want to give up about $12 million/year when the council can get other people to run those services right away. They only run about 10% of the social services anyway. So if the Catholic church wants to back out and lose money, fine with the council.

You scared me for a second with your subject heading "End of Ida". I was afraid you knew something I didn't. But then I read and realized you meant the storm and not me. Whewwww!
This has been a crazy week. Its very rare to see my name anywhere. But to hear it almost constantly for the past week, I've become almost paranoid. Probably sounds silly to everyone with more common, modern names. But usually when I give my name I hear "Oh my great aunt was named Ida or my great grandmother was an Ida."

Oh, I'm sorry! I didn't even think that you might see it like that! It was a nice day today, though, and storm names don't get reused for many many years, so I think you're safe.
