flower power

(inspired by this post)


i'm really excited. i just ordered flowers to be sent to a gay couple at san francisco city hall. i don't know who they will be. i just told them to deliver them to a gay couple who are waiting to get married.

i ordered my flowers from Rich at My Flower Shop

6126 Geary Blvd., San Francisco, CA 94121 Toll Free: 800-883-1185 Local: 415-752-6270

he is cutting us a deal since it's for a good cause :) also, if they do a bulk delivery the delivery cost to us will be less. i recommend him b/c he's really sweet and helpful. but hey, if you have another florist you want to use, by all means, order away! 

 

SPREAD THE LOVE! SEND SOME FLOWERS!!!

 

also, any of you in the bay area who have a little time this afternoon might be interested in this.

For Gay Md. Couple, It's 'Finally Happening'

By Darragh Johnson
Washington Post Staff Writer
Friday, February 20, 2004; Page A01

Six years ago, James Packard and Erwin Gomez got married in Amsterdam, "but it didn't count because it wasn't in the U.S.," Gomez said.

So when the Rockville couple heard about the same-sex marriages in San Francisco, Packard persuaded Gomez to hop on a flight west.

They arrived at 2 a.m. Tuesday, the ninth couple from City Hall's door, and slept for eight hours on the steps. By 12:30 that afternoon, they were standing in the marble rotunda of that palatial building and repeating, "For better, for worse . . . in sickness and in health . . . I do."

Hey all you do-gooders!

If you feel like participating in the "send flowers to a homo couple waiting in line at SF City Hall" meme, might I suggest you do so a little cheaper? A friend of lhalff's will go buy and personally deliver the flowers for a reasonable PayPal donation. Check it out:

Flowers for Al and Don

I rather appreciate the notion of SF City Hall being swathed knee-deep in flowers from round the world. The people have spoken, indeed.
