I found the friend that I wanted to give a wedding present to.
Thanks for the help!
I was reading my usual morning news this morning when I happened upon this story: http://www.komotv.com/stories/34416.htm
In short, the atheist couple who live in Bellevue decided to make a big fuss over a giving tree that is up in Bellevue City Hall. They say it represents "christianity" and they "resent it". It's decorated in gold balls and gold ribbon along with requests for gifts and donations for those in need. The tree brings in a ton of money for the needy during this time of year. So why are these two complaining? I wouldn't exactly call myself atheist...I'm more of an agnostic...just haven't found anything that 'calls out to me'. I'm not into the christianity or catholic church and I don't like when they try and force their beliefs on me...but when it comes to christmas, for me, it's a time of giving. It's a time of togetherness. It's a time to love one another. I don't celebrate Jesus but I do celebrate being a human and having loved ones. Most would call me and understanding person, but I just don't understand why people have to complain all the time about things that don't really matter. It's not hurting anybody. It doesn't hurt me when people walk down the street and hand out flyers asking me if I've "heard the word of the lord". All I say is a polite "no thank you" and keep walking. People take life a little too seriously sometimes, in my opinion...
What does everyone else think about this story? Does it frustrate you as much as it does me? Or are these people legitimate in what they are complaining about? Please share your thoughts!

Oh, and just so you know, Chairman, King Co. Council Larry Phillips recently found out that his vote was not counted, but he was not informed until he volunteered to help notify voters. Gotta love it.
If anyone is interested in helping to observe the hand recount, I can hook you up.
It's really quite silly for me to even have to say such a thing, but let's also try to refrain from all the name calling and threats. I don't expect us all to join hands and go skipping merrily over the flowery fields to search for the end of the rainbow, but let's at least try to get our points across without all the unnecessary expletives. Don't get me wrong, there have been plenty of times where I've wanted to drive the point home by adding a few choice words, myself, but I know it's only going to make matters worse and twist those panties into an even tighter knot. So, the next time you want to tell someone to "choke on a dick" or let them know what a "donkey raping shit eater" they are, search way down deep within yourself and try to listen to that faint whisper of an inner-voice telling you, "NO. Don't do it. Don't you be that person. Because man, where's the love?" There's not enough, I tell you what.
Really, kids, just use some common sense here. I know there will always be something that someone disagrees or has a problem with, but hopefully we can keep things running smoothly enough that the majority can pleasantly benefit from the community. As always, you're welcome to contact me at pixelwench at livejournal dot com and I'll try to answer your community-related questions the best that I can. Thank you.
