Hey y’all! I am stranded in San Francisco and having a ball. I came out here to throw Rebel Cupcake in Oakland with my friend Christine at her production company‘s Friday night party Hot Box and go to the Hard French Winter Ball. Both events were unique and incredible queer experiences!
Me and Christine.
There was an ice storm in Brooklyn and our flight got rescheduled so Mackenzi and I are stuck here for a couple of more days.
Just a blog housekeeping note: for some reason the bandwidth on Queer Fat Femme.com went bananas the other day and I exceeded the meager bandwidth I pay for (maybe it’s time I sold advertising?) so for a couple of days there was a blank screen where there once were pithy anecdotes and queer magic fun times. I make it up to you now with this…
New episode of the Lesbian Tea Basket! Check it out, featuring Alix and Jen Gandy, discussion of Maple Chasing and, you know, tea for lesbians.
Also while on vacation I’ve been reading some Mormon Mommy Blogs (there’s a whole tribe of them, I just read about them on Jezebel and Salon.com). I’m totally inspired by them, because of the positive attitude, extremely cute and inventive crafts, and their relentless photo documentation of the things they do. So maybe I’ll include more stories and recaps on the blog in the coming months.
Mackenzi and I were talking about what exciting things are happening in New York City this weekend. She said, “There are lots of things to do this weekend, unpack, do laundry, mourn the fact that you’re not in San Francisco.”
We had such a great time in this magical little cabin! I am glad we stayed somewhere unusual rather than in a motel or resort because I love having an adventure.
It was really a cross between glamping and a hotel room, as it is a room with walls, windows and a comfy queen size bed. But the sink, shower and toilet were all outside.
Key Deer are about the size of a small big dog. Smaller than a Great Dane, taller than a Golden Retriever. But SO cute. The first one I met followed me around the cabin as I took photos. Another one (although hard to tell if they were the same Doe or a different Doe) licked Dara's pajamas.
FemmeCast's Femme Shark Correspondent Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha came out for a clandestine visit/gig for API month at Swarthmore last weekend and it was a welcome distraction from everything to hang out and do life planning and road tripping with her. She went looking for apartments with me and I caught a bit on tape. (I want to start a video blog but need to figure out how to get the video editing software I need for PC. Eventually.) So here's a bit of that adventure, for your pleasure.
Right now I'm on Gaycation with my Bestie Rachael (The founder of Femme Mafia International and FemmeCast's Sexpert), which basically means I get a cheap flight to Atlanta and come live down here for a few days, going to parties and living life cheaper than in the Big Apple. Plus I love the South with a great passion.
