My uncle threw a party last night and invited the whole family. This is a semi-regular thing, but it was the first year I've been. There were lots of friends and family there. At one point my uncle got really bossy and was insisting that everyone come in to play Minute to Win It games. He gathered everyone up, talked about the game, and thanked everyone for coming.

Then he said, "As you know, gay marriage is now legal in New Mexico. So I'd like to ask my partner of 18 years to become my husband."

They are getting married in June! I'm so happy for them! Everyone clapped and hugged. Then we all got drunk.

Happy New Year!
