“i want to electrify my soul”

December 14, 2011

It’s official; we’re changing our names.  Well, it isn’t official yet, but i am filling out the paperwork to make it so.  Mostly, it’s “bring 27 copies of this paper on which you have written both your current name and the name you would like 15 times.”  But there is one other blank to fill in on said paper:

Petitioner wishes to change his/her last name because _____________________________________

Which i desperately want to fill out as follows:

Petitioner wishes to change his/her last name because she got gay married.

There is a slight problem, in that name changes in our location are completely up to the discretion of the judge.  There are exactly no rules as to what they can or cannot approve.  And you have to pay the $140 whether you get a new name out of it or not.  So i believe we will be filling it out as such:

Petitioner wishes to change his/her last name because we want a family name.

Simple, non-specific, true.  And on paper Jamie and i look very straight.

What’s more; the judge that i think this will go through would totally go for “got gay married” – but i don’t want to screw this up if it goes to someone else.

    Been meaning to hop by your blog for awhile; I always see your comments on Offbeat. Firstly, the first part of this post utterly cracked me up. Secondly, I’m pretty sure you’re too cool for me. Thirdly, uh…you link Aslan and Babeland, which means you’re pretty damn awesome.
