1. We went to two libraries today and now have library cards in TWO awesome systems. LOVE.

At the KC library, in the lgbt section, I was suddenly overwhelmed by the number of books available -- I was just pulling out everything that interested me and realized I had too many to carry -- and as I left I felt personally distressed at the memory of a girlhood without those books available. And it's not my girlhood -- I was so amazingly lucky; I never felt a lack of books. But looking at THIS selection, I felt how meager the pickings were in my hometown, and the knowledge that people -- people I know, people I'm related to -- had no books, or had hateful books, or had chapters from reference books that they clung to because it meant they weren't alone -- and I was overwhelmed. And grateful and greedy, because I can read as much as I want, because I have all the books I could possibly want right at my fingertips, books about my tribe.

2. Porn battleeeeeee! Finally. Go prompt!. Thanks, flistflist.

Poooorrrrrrn.
