Milkbath II

I’m catching up on sleep right now… I napped for most of yesterday healing my leg and most of the redness and swelling is gone now and it’s definitely feeling much better. Since someone asked me to post another picture, here you go. It looks worse than it is, and it really doesn’t look that bad. Nothing much exciting to report. Watching Survivor soon, with a meal c/o Caitlin. Woo woo!

By the way, everyone keeps messaging me asking what the BMEfest plans are. To be honest, with the strangeness and unfortunately extremely divisive trauma that BME’s gone through this year, I’m not sure that there will be an agreed upon official plan, so for now, what I’m recommending is that people check out Jana‘s Toronto BME summer BBQ event, which is taking place on Pride Weekend here in Toronto. She’s been part of the BME scene here in Toronto and has been with us since the start, has hosted numerous successful events, and I think she’s uniquely positioned to host a BBQ that everyone can enjoy. If “official” events are also staged, I’m sure they will be done in a complimentary fashion where both can be enjoyed, so feel safe in making your travel plans now.

Oh yeah, I need to shave…

    I keep seeing this picture of you and it reminds me of a shot Annie Leibowitz took of Whoopi Goldberg in a tub of milk…

    No, the beard is great. Although all the hipsters have beards now (again), so if you’re hipster-averse, I’d lose the beard.

    And the “milk” is actually Dr. Bronner’s soap

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
