Updates about me

I am now a married woman. Woo Hoo! if you search my name "rainbough" at you will find my wedding albums, and can see pics of me getting married in a cave in my red dress.

Also I am back at massage heights although a different location, and I am shocked to discover I actually enjoy working there. Given how vehmently I hated the last massage heights this has come as a pleasant surprise. Of course the money isn't great but the tips are good.

BilLee has left home depot and as a result is currently in the process of fielding calls from many prospective employers. He really wants something that will be a great fit for him. That he will enjoy, will be good pay, and that he can stick with for a long time.

The down side of this is that our house hunt is on hold once again and there are an awful lot of prospective employers knocking at the door (i.e. phone). Its been frustrating when we finally find one we think will be great, go through the interview process, and then discover that he didn't get the job. This has happened twice now.

In other news we recently got a DBA in williamson county for our massage/yoga business. BilLee is continuing his training to become a yoga instructor and soon we hope to combine our talents in our own yoga and massage studio.

I am nervous about starting out on my own. It can be rough to put yourself out there and actually ask people for business. I am not sure how well I will fare at it, but I think it is very worthwhile to gain the experience of doing so even if it turns out I am not especially good at it.

I am going to break up my updates into multiple posts. Part 2 coming soon.

The Great Moronic RIAA

Recording industry goes after personal use:

The Howell case was not the first time the industry has argued that making a personal copy from a legally purchased CD is illegal. At the Thomas trial in Minnesota, Sony BMG's chief of litigation, Jennifer Pariser, testified that "when an individual makes a copy of a song for himself, I suppose we can say he stole a song." Copying a song you bought is "a nice way of saying 'steals just one copy,' " she said.

My opinion of the RIAA: HA HA HA HA....

New Hampshire Civil Unions

New Hampshire Legalizes same sex marriages.

New Hampshire is the fourth state to permit civil unions, but the first to do it without a court decision or the threat of one. New Hampshire Governor John Lynch signed the law on May, which grants same-sex couples the same rights, responsibilities and obligations as married male-female couples, but it does not call the union a marriage.

Yea New Hampshire! But on a more serious note why does it matter so much what we do and do not call a gay marriage?

Happy '08

In celebration of the new year I had to be the geek that called my siblings on the east coast to ask them what year it was at 11:45pm central time. When I told my twin that I was calling from last year he says, "you can't call from last year... you can only call from now." Or something to that effect I don't remember the exact wording.
