4th of 20

This archival pic’s from last fall’s Halloween Block Party. She’s chilling, you know, in between terrorizing people with her fierce dragon breath or what have you. Slightly (but not that much) more revealing angle of fierce dragon action here. O, what I could do with a costume like that, in the right venue.

Reminds me of the giant winged eggplant, the mascot of a Minneapolis vegetarian collective, the late, great New Riverside Cafe. It went to May Day parades and fairs and such, but it also made cameos at things like Phyllis Schlafly’s speaking gig at a nearby college. There was nothing us feisty Lesbian Avengers could do to disrupt the proceedings any more than that winged, 7-foot tall eggplant did, just sitting there. God love it.

Now don’t get me started on my brush with lesbian celebrity I had at that cafe one time in the mid-1990s. Otherwise it would begin to smack of a post, and all this text is in that light colored font, just to remind me that I’m not actually writing a post, but a modest caption. But remind me sometime. I will let on that it includes none other than k.d. lang, and a corn cob. Umm hum, yup.

    As I was reading this, I was thinking, “Um…this is actually a post.” So, you are cheating.

    D’oh!

    I admit I have become powerless over writing blog posts — my blog has become unavoidable. What I don’t know yet is whether a Power Greater Than My blog can restore me to my hiatus. But she keeps track of our finances, so I’m thinking it’s likely. I have every intention to turn myself over to my beloved — as soon as I have the time to get around do it. Now, off to make a searching and fearless moral inventory of my work to do list.

    (Okay, so I’ve deviated a bit from the 12 steps.)

    Thank you, sister! I miss this conversation, and feel a pang of debt to y’all reader gals, but it’s good work I’m doing, and I’m glad to be doing it.
