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.

It occurs to me that it looks like the beginning of my comment is an unfinished 0.0 but I trust you know I meant outline list item number zero.

Soon, I hope! Well, you can stalk me at my ancestral home at this very moment, but pretty soon you should be able to stalk me at my gay boyfriend's and my new place.

it always warms the cockels of my heart to see people gleeing about the awesomeness of public libraries, as working in one tends to distract you from it pretty much all the time. Go Library!
