How come I donated two huge bags of review books to Enable Ireland this morning (a collection van, I should add - I could barely lift these bags up to put them outside the front door, let alone carry them to the charity shop), and yet the amount of books scattered around the house doesn't seem to have visibly diminished? It reminds me of moving house - you fill up boxes and boxes and then you look around and the house looks exactly the same as usual.

In other news, I am still sick. And yet, because such is the way of the journalist, the pages of the paper must be filled and work must be done. Done through a haze of Lemsip Max Strength ("IAAAAAAAAN!" I haven't seen The Ad this winter, though. Have Ian and Pal vanished from our lives forever? Surely not!), but done nevertheless. However, it's pretty fucking slow. And my lurgy also means I can't meet jane_the_23rd to plan our great feminist campaign this afternoon, nor barsine and daegaer for post-work pancakes. I am both an invalid and a social pariah! Waaaaah!

Booo! Do you think there's a chance you'll be feminist-enabled by Friday afternoon, instead? You poor pet.

I hope so! I do feel better today than yesterday (yesterday I was literally shivering with aches), but it's probably not a good idea to leave the house today. But I am meeting Jane tomorrow out in Dun Laoghaire to discuss our planned radio show, and should be fighting fit by Friday to discuss our glorious Feminist Mafia (now there's a name for the group...)!

The <http://www.feministcabal.org>Secret Feminist Cabal</a> is about gender exploration in speculative fiction, but it's a great name; I think we could build on it :-)

(Argh. Pretend I did that A-tag right, OK?

Poor you! I hope the haze thins sufficiently for the article to get written without too much pain...

(On the Great Feminist Campaign, incidentally, I am AVIDLY watching this space. I was thinking about it as I walked to work this morning. There's so much that could be done! Yay!)

Hurrah! Do let us know when you are free for a preliminary meeting - I'd like to start asap! I know we need to get people we don't know involved - obviously I don't want it to be just Me and My Mates - but we might as well start meeting anyway. I am full of ideas, from helping elderly women to organising communal creches to letter campaigns for female prisoners of conscience...

I'm actually off work (and Oysterless) this Friday, when I think I see Glitz mooting a meeting above. Let me know if you arrange something for then.
Nov. 30th, 2005 05:00 pm (UTC)
Yes! Let's do this! On Friday!

I'm having flashbacks... I JUST WENT THROUGH THIS, remember?
