We're in the middle of September fundraising for Mefi, and cortex is still half-hippy, so vote with your $ because those scissors are not going to pay for themselves! Jessamyn is making sponsored posts every day this month (acquire your very own excellent certified Jess post right here), plus we're auctioning precious Mefi Blue chatfilter posts (#1, #2; see the current slate of chatfilter topics suggested, vote, and add your own topic ideas to the main thread), and we're still dreaming, so make any post on the blue about dreams or dreaming and tag it #dreamweek to add to the fun.

Show us the love

Hold It In Your HandsHold It In Your Hands by B Tal (cc by-nc)

Besides saying 'I love you,' were there things that your family (or other important adults in your life) did to show you that you were loved and appreciated?

How were you shown you were loved as a kid?

Poems for shy people in love

ShyShy by akageorge (cc by-nc-nd)

In Ask Metafilter, beijingbrown asks about "poems or lines of poetry about love that is awkward, hesitant and quiet - filled with silences and mis-timings" ... while in other quests for words and sounds about feelings, thoughts and things, switcheroo seeks "songs that pick me up and make me want to live again after a long day of work," picklenickle is looking for good songs with lyrics that are hella gay, and slidell searches for children's rhymes and songs that are free of ghastly, scary, and offensive things.

People are people

I want to be a better manager. What did your best manager do? What about your worst?

I want to write in a realistic way about how people meet. How did you meet your significant other?

I want to understand typical people's day-to-day schedules, how they stick to plans, what are realistic daily goals. How did you spend your day?

Married in Seattle

Married in SeattleMarried in Seattle by City of Seattle (cc by)

Various MeFites talk about their experiences being at Seattle's City Hall for the first day of gay marriages in Washington State.

No two groups were alike, except in the near-universal joy and and love that was palpably infectious all day.

I was also really impressed by how well-organized it was. We were pretty much running ahead of schedule all day, and it was clear that the mayor's staff had made this a labor of love, and really wanted to make sure each couple had a special day.

Made me so happy to be alive at this point in history, and proud to live in a city like Seattle.

See more photos in the City of Seattle's About to Get Married Flickr group.
