LJ gets better responses...

Me-Running
A variety of situations keep appearing in front of me where people tell me that I should speak/present on some topic. The thing is... what topic?

If you've known me for a while you have some idea of the scope of my writing. What topics do you think I could turn into interesting classes?

5 most memorable things from 2013.

Me-Running
Since an old friend asked.

1. Being at Iain Turner's leather memorial. That was brutally hard and sad and beautiful all at the same time.
2. Going to Disneyland with my kids. Their excitement was so wonderful.
3. Having a police officer pull up behind me while I painted a mural and say, "Some neighbor called in to report graffiti. I told them 'Don't you know the difference between graffiti and art?!'"
4. The Amanda Fucking Palmer concert. Completely epic.
5. The day Noah came up with the word kersquirbling. (I'm spelling it differently every time I write it. He will have to come up with the definitive spelling.) It means adding sugar and milk to your tea and stirring it. :)

ETA: How could I forget?! This was the year that a man actually apologized in public for sexually assaulting me. That will probably impact the rest of my life.

Just so you know...

Livejournal is the only RSS feed I use. So I check in here every day. I miss all of you who don't post. I wish my friends list was full of something other than posts from me...

Thank you...

for all the birthday wishes. I saw a lot.

I'm talking to Noah about a hibernation period. I think it would be good for us to pick a few months and not socialize and not do projects beyond the basics of survival. We *always* have four or six things going on. We are both so tired we can't sleep enough to ever feel rested.

Besides, maybe if I take a few months off from socializing people will have a chance to miss me and they will forget that I am really unpleasant. Maybe the rosy glow of memory will make my presence easier to bear.

19 to go.

I'm actually glad rbus asked me what I was reading. I found out that I had inconsistencies on my main blog. Now the numbering and duplicates are fixed. :)

And, I'm hella vain and grateful when anyone asks me pretty much anything about myself.

I made a deal with myself that I would try to read 52 new-to-me books this year. I have 17 to go.
