I need to do a proper Arisia write up & email my notes on the panel from Hell (Also known as the Are Geek Girls Objectifying Themselves or some such) & why at least three of the panelists should never be allowed to get on a stage & discuss anything related to feminism again. Bonus points for the one who took the panel from slut shaming to Islamophobia with a detour into attacking Orthodox Jews in the audience. It was a masterful display of how not to exist. Any tweets you saw about me possibly needing bail are absolutely from that panel & you should never believe any of Daniel Older's claims that I have been arrested. Or that I was mean on a panel. He's way meaner than I am, for the record. In other news I am high on sleep and writing short stories as a result. Work is going to require me to be on the East Coast for two months (in theory, they have yet to confirm), so my time without the fam is going to be writing time assuming I can do that & go to training & finish my class for this quarter. How are you?

In transition. Struggling with old patterns. Putting one foot in front of the other regardless. Feeling humbled by how hard small victories can be when my brain has jumped off its usual track.

Thank you for asking.

Not nearly as exciting as your life. Although my brain is apparently trying to nudge me back to fiction.

I await your write up with bated breath. (I never managed to get to Arisia when I lived a train ride away.)

Oh jeez. Suddenly glad I didn't go to that panel after all.

Really looking forward to that panel writeup. A lot.

I'm having a rough winter, and desperate for spring.

Not dead or physically wounded. It is a HUGE accomplishment. Huge.

My Arisia was fail-free and much fun, and I'm very sorry that yours wasn't. Also that I didn't manage to see you more than in passing.

And now work and Con or Bust are BEARS and I don't have to write up Arisia, but I'm at least being productive?

Wow, and I didn't think it was possible for a self-objectification panel to be worse than the one I moderated at WisCon last year. I kind of wish I had been there to see you and Daniel laying the smackdown.

One of the panelists is my friend, and her con post-mortem is basically about how horrible that panel was because of the slut shaming, Islamophobic-crap and the moderator who didn't let people speak up. I suspect you were the person she was referencing when she said that the mod was blowing off opposing viewpoints from the audience.

I kind of wish I'd been there, but I probably would have passed out from high blood pressure.
