Back from the Dead!

Hello Grey Boys Girls and Zhes,

      I am back in the virtual flesh and wanting to say hello again! We don't need to get into the gritty details, but I have been very very sick, and am finally feeling well enough to come back to the Greyspace. I apologize for my abrupt departure, but one does not often think about grabbing a laptop on the way to the hospital, and once one is there, the general idea is to get better and leave as soon as possible. The food is as bad as they say it is, the odor is of death and sterilization, and the people are not particularly attractive if I'm being frank (and we know I always am!)

       So much has happened in the queer world since I left, but most notably, prop 8 was voted unconstitutional! See, crazy evangelical Christians, God is, in fact, NOT trying to punish us. I realize that this is but a small step in a much larger journey, but all forward movement only serves to bring about greater momentum, making the next step a little easier than the one before it. So thank you to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals (the two judges in the panel of three anyway), who voted for equality. Thank you for being part of the movement to bring our country into the century that we supposedly reside in.

      What has been going on in your worlds? I have lots of stories, and lots of drama to catch you up on, so I hope to see you back here in the Greyspace tomorrow, where I'll give you an update on my best friend issues, the perils of dating your friend's ex, et cetera.

Peace and love and bugs named Doug,
