I'm not dead.

This semester, I have learned that campus activism and homework do not mix. So you know fandom is straight out. I have also learned that I will never do activism again... okay, that's not true. Like Tim saying he won't continue with the whole Superhero-ing gig. Yeah, right. Still, no more leadership positions. I'm going to graduate, and lead a nice quiet life working in a library and manning (womanning?) phone banks, writing press releases and grant proposals for the local GLBT Civil Right group, etc. Scud work needs to be done, and I will do it.

But when I do wander into LJ-World, I am very pleased to note that the Cass/Steph following has gained momentum. Also, people are writing fic for The Authority again, which I thought was beginning to dry up.

I am going to have a field day, come Christmas Break, trying to catch up with everything.

And this way you can change people's minds by stealth, which they like more anyway...

You know, I don't doubt that "stealth" activism works... cuz clearly it does. But I think there need to be a balance between that and the more traditional overt stuff.

Unfortunatly, the overt stuff is exhausting. I think the big thing is event planning. We've been doing so much this year... I feel about like I've been planning a wedding and one or two cocktail parties every week ;-)

Isn't there an "event planner" job? Maybe that's what I should do with my life... Or not.

Yes, slip it down their throats slowly and hope that the Bible belt never pick up on the whole stealth activism thing and stick to their shouting-shouting telethon ways.

(I am very fond of the James Bond movie where the televangilist turns out to a be front for a heroin operation, it made me laugh)
