Time is flying. My blogging is getting really weird. One day it’s about violence against women in east Congo. The next it’s about my Xmas tree. Oh well. That is how my life is. Maybe everyone’s is like this—from one extreme to the mundane issues of life.
The tree is still up. Needles are dropping. What to do. Gotta get a new camera. Shucks. Trying to save money but the camera hasn’t shown up. There’s an important (I think) new book out by Jerry Lembcke “Hanoi Jane: War, Sex, and Fantasies of Betrayal.” I will post more about that asap. It is amazing and sad to me that after all this time and all the evidence and testimony proving that the horrid rumors that spread about me in North Vietnam are NOT true, the letters and rumors continue. Some people are really sick.
Mostly I am writing. Or trying to. Life does get in the way but it’s usually pretty interesting. Like I just heard from Kathy Griffin who wants me and Gloria Steinem to do an episode with her. Also, Margaret Cho wants me to do her show and I adore both of them and want to but how can I do it all and get the book finished by end of April? Also, one challenge is that I keep getting new things to add to the chapters on love and sex in the third act. I gotta put those chapters to bed soon (pardon the pun) or I’ll never finish.
Also, there’s this humongous new idea that my G-CAPP will do May 1st in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta that will be carried through the country and maybe elsewhere. I’ll actually start another microsite to build awareness of what will happen and there are some new friends that are totally social media savvy that have me jumping out of my skin with excitement. Wait till you hear. Soon.
Gotta go to the hairdresser now cause there’s a fun party tonight. I’ll tell you about it tomorrow but no time to buy a camera so no photos. Ah well.
See you next time.
