You forgot the iron maiden and the rack. Otherwise you are almost ready for a visit from Laurie.

I hear Laurie doesn't like Iron Maidens as they tend to chip her nail polish ;D She's a big softie really.

Good luck with the speech Michelle. Nothing like getting out there on the front line eh? I'm sure you'll smash it :)

Peace and love and all that good stuff,

Sadie

I’ll have to see if there’s a padded version available.  Some sort of standing isolation tank, perhaps...   ::)


The speech did go well.  One interesting thing:  When the speech was over the women from the UU church sort of flocked around me, escorting me away from the stage area.  I found out later that they were concerned someone in the crowd might attack the out trans woman!  That would have been very surprising within that crowd, but I suppose I could have triggered someone.

I’ll post the speech over in the Activism area.

Congratulations Michelle both on the speech and for the women friends you have that rallied around you just in case. That is awesome.

  I see you are still lollygagging doing all kinds of things except getting my room ready. Did I tell you I have been feel better recently and am beginning to think I might be able to be fit company soon and be able to do some visiting?

  Hugs,
   Laurie

Michelle as I am on my GCS recovery, I want to thank you for being so detailed and open about your GCS three months ago.  You have inspired me and so many others.  Your public speeches, your writing, and just you being you.  You are helping change the world.

Kendra, I’ve been watching your progress, and GCS recovery.  Congratulations, and you are doing pretty well there.  It’s great to have such support.

Something tells me that you might make one heck of an activist yourself.  I definitely see the potential there!

Laurie, I still have a bit of work to be done on your room here, but that should be taken care of in the next week or so.  Depending on some other factors I may be out of town part of next week, but beyond that I’ll definitely be around here much of the time, unless the Road Trip bug bites again. 

How’s that for being wishy-washy?   :D

Michelle, I know I would have been overwhelmed with joy having cis-sisters give such support.

Wherever you go....there you are!
