Time Event
2:21a
Been fighting off some low-grade unwell-ness with tummy upset. Feh! But seems to be getting much better.

A friend from Torino is visiting Sara, and brought me a bottle of Ricola tea crystals. While one can get other Ricola products here in Spain or back in the US, I've never seen these tissane crystals anywhere except in Italy. Nice to have.

I'm still witing my weekly dating column for egay.com, which is where most of my online writing about my boyfriend winds up rather than here, since they pay me for it. :-)

Column 3, "Room of One's Own," on moving in together (or not), can be found here and Column 4, "Where There's Smoke," on "mixed" relationships (smoker/non-smoker) and negotiating space, can be found here.

Am very behind on just about everything, although I've managed to translate two more of the books from PlanetaJunior into English, since even when I'm feeling unwell I can still translate, it doesn't seem to drain me the same way writing or editing does.

Call for Submissions

FIRST PERSON QUEER:
Who We Are, Where We've Come From, Where We're Going

edited by Richard Labonté and Lawrence Schimel
for publication in Fall 2007 by Arsenal Pulp Press

We're looking for short (under 1500 words) first person essays from across the spectrum of queer experience that depict the diversity, the complexity, and the excitement of contemporary GLBTQ life. We want to be surprised, and to surprise our readers, with intensely personal experiences from writers of diverse genders, ages, races, and orientations, informing us about unusual aspects of our lives. Comprehending queer codes, exulting in nonconformity, expressing gender deviance, confronting assimilation, having to "pass": write about the theory of your life. Discuss sissyhood, parenting skills, sexual experiences (play or work), urban pleasures, personal choices: write about the practice of your life. We've all got a story to tell. Share yours. Express your "I".
