A few brief, procrastinatory notes

1) I must wish a huge and happy birthday to the sweetest, most fabulously wonderful, Piliest of Pilis in the whole wide world. I can't wait until we've lived more of our lives together than without each other. Even if that takes a while, because well - you're old(er than me). SMOOCH.

2) If you're not reading the posts over at lesbian family get over there now. I am humbled to be joining a team with such amazing women - and such amazing writers. And I really wish I had done my introductory post first, because now I'm totally intimidated. Kwynne is blogging so brilliantly about “cake batter race theories” and queer parenting. Trista has a fantastic letter to Heather Poe, aka Mrs. Mary Cheney. J. is musing about what it means to be "family." And Round is thinking about what makes a "real mom." You don't even have to be a lesbian! And while you're at it, go and vote for Polly aka LesbianDad in a tight Best New Blog Race which has been marred by some really nasty homophobic b.s.

3) BLOGGER BLECH: All I can say is that as soon as I am done with this verdamnte project - as for me and my blog we will worship the wordpress. If I haven't commented on your blog lately it is because a) I am way too busy and stressed and/or b) blogger will not let me.

4) I gave my notice at the job that blows on Monday. It was so unbelievably satisfying. The details of the story are not bloggable, but there was a lot of vindication involved in letting them know that other people like and appreciate me. I will be returning to the Job That Does Not Blow, except with a fancier title, in January.

Back to the Project That Ate My Life. Smooches, Art.

Happy Birthday, Pili!!

And I'm heading over to check out the Lesbian Family posts now. Congrats on joining their writing family - and you, too, are an amazing writer!

Congrats on telling your job to shove it. That's unbelievably satisfying.

And let me know if you need any help switching over to Wordpress. Blogger, though it served me well, is irritating as hell and you'll feel this soothing "aaahhhh" once you bail. :)

Yay!

And AS -- I'm still wishing you luck on your current project. I know how scary/stressful it can be as that deadline approaches!

And thanks for the kind words. Once you get some free time you're going to rock the LesbianFamily.org world!
