Party #1: Funny Lady's husband P's birthday. A low-key affair, at least to start, with a couple of features that were awkward for me. First, everyone brought cheap, tiny presents except me; I just showed with a nice bottle of merlot. Second, for most if not all of the short time I was there, everyone there except me was in the polycule that includes Funny Lady & P. I adore Funny Lady to bits, as you've read, but I don't consider myself part of that group and I'm pretty sure they don't either. Funny Lady did, after all, dump me in a remarkably classy way a few years back. But still, good times, and I got to see Funny Lady & her metamour R looking particularly lovely.

Party #2: A while back I met M while out dancing. I finally made it to one of her parties last night. I'd considered blowing it off in favor of the above, but none other than the Tickler messaged me and asked me to show, partly because she had her friend S with her who was passing through town. This party was a blanket fort cuddle party. That's right: ropes strung between the furniture and hung with blankets & sheets, every surface covered with people cuddling, reading each other stories, etc. Light makeouts happening, no sex or kink allowed. I damn near fell asleep and went home shortly after midnight, but it wasn't bad at all. Very relaxing. S is cute, queer, and eminently cuddly, but she's non-local (for now?) and has some serious life stuff she needs to deal with.

S says people on the east coast are freaking out about the political situation way more than people in Seattle. I'm not sure whether that's good or not. On the one hand, I'm sorry they're stressing, but on the other we're more likely to see positive action from them. Maybe it's because they have a ringside seat to all the action in DC & NYC.
Write a fatwa.

People in Seattle aren't freaking out? Really?

What about the situation at the UW? Are people freaking out about that?

Oh, we're freaking out all right, but S was saying people back east are freaking out more.

The shooting? The victim has been outed, the shooter has not, apparently the initial reports were quite wrong, the victim wants to open dialogue with the shooter, no idea if that's going to happen or not. It seems to be going a lot more like the Zimmerman case than I would have thought possible here. o.O I'm still waiting to see how it goes.

I've been following the news, I'm kind of wondering about reactions from people who aren't faculty whom I know on campus. (Those folks are pretty appalled and fruck. But... I know a lot fewer people than I once did.)

...and of course there's the whole fascists meet on red square to build a wall to celebrate Trump's planned wall thing tomorrow? (It sounds like there will be protests. If there are not protests blasting Pink Floyd there is no justice in this world.) ...that bit sounds like a pretty awesome sort of riot. Especially when there's already been a shooting.

(UW has all kinds of problems, and there are many I'm happy to rant about. But... I didn't just go there, I grew up there. I probably have better memories of campus than of my family of origin, in general, by an order of magnitude.)
