- I still don't have an operation date and am kind of stressed about this. I mean. I just want to know already. There's a good chance it'll get in the way of going to BLYG because they only have one day after that weekend when they do operations. (I have asked them to fit me in there if they possibly can. They'll get back to me.) I would love to have this sorted out so that I can plan accordingly. And maybe some time when I'm not going round and round in circles about this I might manage to post something substantial again.

- We're going away for the weekend with family. There will be five of us in the car. And we're taking my wheelchair. And bedding. And food. I have no idea how this is going to work; maybe we should just strap J to the roof. (...or not.)

- Valborg's mum gave me a book! It's from these people (site in Swedish), with tips for murdering old unwanted clothes and turning them into new things. She just found it somewhere I think. It's pretty fabulous. No idea how much I'll actually use it but I'm pretty sure there are some good ideas and inpiration in there. And some really cool pictures! (I've been over there doing bits of sewing - my jeans and a t-shirt for Valborg and tiny pride flags because there is always a need for tiny pride flags - almost entirely from scrap fabric and old clothes that I'm re-using, so I am now designated as Interested In This Sort Of Thing. This is the kind of thing Valborg's parents latch onto, I think.

- Not unrelatedly, favourite queer/genderqueer symbols? I mean obviously I know a bunch but there are a million variations on all of them. (Yeah, I am sewing myself something ridiculous and then wearing it for pride week. And just whenever I want, basically.)

- Did I mention that I'm really obsessive when I get started with things? I'm still taking too many photos, but keep running out of space to store them and having to find new storage places.

I really hope you can come, but please don't feel any stress about it! If you can't come this year, we're already planning stuff for next time... Although I am super crossing my fingers that you get the operation when you wish for it and that you can come and have fun with us at BLYG! ^_^

And I really want you to come! And listen to your and Val's speech

I know what you mean, I've had to back out from so many fun things and interesting cons the last one and a half year because I'm just too bloody tired in the weekends. Not fun at all

Slight tangent, but I thought you might like this.

As far as favorite queer symbols, I can't think of any... Maybe we need a new one.

re: genderqueer/queer symbols

I like the trans symbol that combines the "male" and "female" symbols. (arrow on circle and cross on circle) I don't know what I really think about it in terms of gender/sex/sexuality and appropriation, but it looks super cool. Abstracted.

Here's to hoping the operation sorts itself out and you can be up and about more soon.

=) Even though I only met them very shortly, I heart Val's parents. They really are extremely nice people. Her whole family is awesome (you included, of course). <3
