just another friday.

Standard

my boss has either been absent from the office, or busy with other stuff all day, so i’ve spent most of the day reading “jesse in jail”, which is a really intense website full of letters from a transdude who did 3 months in a federal (women’s) prison for protesting the school of the americas. it’s beautiful and inspiring and haunting, especially the part called 32 bones. it was a bit of a tear-jerker, which is kind of lousy for the office, but whatever. there’s a link on the left-hand side, if you’d like to read it (which i highly suggest you do, especially if you fancy yourself some sort of prison activist)
what else? me and amanda had our FIRST OFFICIAL OUTDOORS FRIDAY LUNCH DATE of 2009. yes! thanks to global warming, no cowering in a house or coffee shop. back to the cannon at arsenal park, which is where we belong. well, i didn’t quite make it to the cannon, as it was swarming with teen boys when i got there & i wasn’t really in the mood to be called a faggot repeatedly. so we lunched on the wall, which was just as good.
today my boss asked me, out of nowhere, “how many pairs of shoes do you have?” i replied, “ten.” he said, “every woman should have at least ten pairs of shoes!” i said, “but i only really wear three on a regular basis.” he pondered this for a second, and then said, “so the rest are in hibernation. that’s great!” and then we went back to work.
