Random Thought Dump

Ok. Ok. Uh. Right...

Got a ton of sleep last night. Passed out around 8, briefly awoke when man came to bed around 12:30, then slept till nearly 8. So easily 11 hours. This is a direct result of getting virtually ZERO hours on Sunday night. Honestly, I went to bed around 4 AM, lay awake for two hours, and then dozed fitfully till 7 or so.

The moral of this story is that no matter how much sewing needs doing, I have to learn to sleep normal hours and take breaks. Or I'll get sick on the eve of my most challenging work-week and most ambitious event-weekend of the year. Can't have that.

So, sewingfilter: Chemise, leather jerkin, trousers and dinky-dolly li'l baby dress are complete. Except for grommets. The tiny dress is so kawaii, I could make myself ill with the cooing.

I should post pictures. Except that I'd have to stop sewing long enough to figure out how to hook the camera up to the PC. Gotta do that, though. So cute!

So, what's left to do is minimal. Gotta run up one simple skirt for myself, and engineer a trouser solution for my boyo, X. Who seems to have unusually delicate belly-skin. Gotta grommet everything and do a tad of mending and a lot of laundry. Then all that remains is to pack, to do a minimal amount of advance cooking, and to tackle the Marvelous Spectacle Dessert that I'm planning. Gah. That last bit is worrying me. But it's my own fault for not focusing more attention on it earlier. Anyone who feels like helping with that is welcome to volunteer (*sobs!*).

On to another item: E and I were talking about fandom and sexuality, which lead to a discussion of general issues around sexuality, which lead to E saying "It's well known that lesbianism is a gateway queerdom." Which lead to me laughing uproariously. Cause it's true.

It seems that lots of lesbians read and write m/m slashfic. That's interesting, and very unexpected. What I want to know is if any genuinely straight men either read or write it? And if so, what sorts of things are they getting out of it, given that they presumably aren't getting a visceral kick out of the m/m sex?

There's at least one guy who wrote a large body of femslash in the SG-1 fandom, who then started branching out into group situations, and has lately moved on to some strictly m/m bits. So, gateway queerdom, I presume.

There's more, but I've got boring, boring work to do. Blargh.

Especially since we know rather vividly what happens when you do this to yourself. Please, please take care of yourself this year! If you don't finish your sewing, it won't ruin Beltane for you - but if you're exhausted and utterly tabbed out, it might!

Thanks. I know you're right. There are a lot of complex little issues here for me. About having this thing go off well. And about feeling like I have striven hard for a thing that is of value to my friends.

But you are absolutely right. In my defense, I got started with the sewing six weeks ahead this time, so at least I learned that lesson!

You'll be missed, my dear.

Actually, ironically, I'll be on the East Coast - just way too busy to come down and hang out. I've got to put the last of my stuff on a truck, then fly back to LA.

Wish I could be there - but then again, maybe the "wine musket" was a fitting swan-song. Certainly not something I'd care to top for painful excess and maudlin displays of self-pity.

I could pick up some gum paste and mold some things this weekend. If you have need of Things. :)

:) You r0x0r.

You know what I'm more concerned about? Meringue mushrooms. Do you wanna do that? Or possibly come to my place and help me do it? I promise if you do, we'll do more actually confectionary work and less squeeing!

Ooh, and if you wanted to do it on Sunday, you could even maybe see Nikki...

Why does the sound of "Marvelous Spectacle Dessert" worry me?
