Go here to watch the latest installment of Shortland Street. In it, Gerald tells us that he wasn't abused, he's happy being himself, and that it's tough noogies if you don't like it. Rage on, my man! He vehemently tells his parents something like, "I'm not the only one! There's hordes of us!", and that just made me smile. (It's so bizarre how something you know well yourself becomes revalotory when you hear someone else saying it.) What a great thing for the younguns to hear, right?
Also, I finally set up the August meetup. I feel bad that it's so late. I decided that because of the delay, I would try to get over the (self-imposed) pressure to create a novel activity, and just meet at the 3 Dollar Bill like we've done in the past a few times. They have the world's most amazing french toast, so really, how wrong could you go? It'll be August 16, Saturday, at 4pm. However, you get two meetups for the price of one; September's is going to be on the 6th (or 7th?) It will definitely be one of those.
