I am Seeing Red

If you are on Facebook, you have seen a lot of red lately.  It started with an image made by the activists at The Human Rights Campaign as a way to show support for the right to marry whether you are straight or gay in a visual and public way.  Well, the image morphed into a meme and people have been very creative with showing their support.

I thought I would share some of my favorites..

  1. Created by The Oatmeal… It combines support for marriage equality and a wonderfully tasty food!

    Bacon!

  2. Grumpy Cat!  Who does not love Grumpy Cat?

  3. If only it sparkled like other vampires you may have heard of…

  4. Yoda.  Smart you are.

  5. Why not combine all the memes into the ultimate red equal sign?

So are you sporting a red profile picture to show support?  Personally, I am having a hard time deciding which one to use.

An Interview with Me

There are lots of people excited about my latest project and many of them are dying to interview me.  Unfortunately I have not had much time to do many interviews, but I did make time to sit down with my husband (let’s call him The Voice of Reason) when he asked to interview me.

The Voice of Reason:  What the hell do you think you are doing?

Poppy:  Um, it looks like I am going to start a blog focused on politics.

Voice:  Seriously! What makes you think that you have anything to say that people want to read.

Poppy:  I am thinking I should be offended by that question, but I will answer it anyway.  First of all, I have a degree and it happens to be in Political Science.  Secondly, I am awesome and they will be able to tell that I am awesome once they read a post or two.  Finally, if I do this blog you will not have to listen to me drone on and on about the problem with politics anymore.

Voice:  Well, I do like that last reason.  I still think you are crazy and I don’t want you to be disappointed if no one reads it.

Poppy:  Well, if you mean that you think I am brilliant and this blog will be a new internet sensation… then I accept your compliments.  Now, go away I have to post something awesome now.

I am so blessed to have such a supportive husband, aren’t I?
