The Liberals' controversial same-sex marriage legislation has passed final reading the House of Commons, sailing through with a vote of 158 for and 133 against. Supported by most members of the Liberals, the Bloc Quebecois and the NDP, the legislation passed easily, making Canada only the third country in the world, after the Netherlands and Belgium, to officially recognize same-sex unions.
It makes a girl proud to be a Canadphile.
In other news, someone at People magazine apparently has a sense of humor
#7ECLIPSEAll the glory, warmth and majesty of the sun -- darkened. A delicious blend of bitter almond, vanilla, frankincense and heliotrope, with a drop of cinnamon.
Well, apparently it was the sun on a cloudy day or in a northern clime, because it was a tad weak. The scent itself is delicious, spicy and complex, but faded much too fast. I forgot that I react to cinnamon oil, so I had to deal with red spots on my inner elbows for a little while, but they went away, no harm done. I really do like the scent, but I'd have to refresh it a couple of times a day, I suspect. And not put it in sensitive areas.
