Personal Digest Saturday: October 11 – October 17

Life news this week: 
  • My interview with Chris from Pleasure Mechanics was broadcasted on the Speaking of Sex podcast. I recorded it a while back but it was released on Friday.
  • Got to chat by phone with my sister in California, and managed to get my fall decorations up finally while being entertained by the conversation. Sounds like my baby nephew is briefly standing on his own these days!
  • Spent Sunday almost entirely devoted to editing other people's stuff. Don't seem to be able to get around to editing my own.
  • Visited my mom on Tuesday and slept over. We had a really nice dinner that she made and we watched Rat Race on DVD. And then in the morning she made me breakfast. It was so cute. :)
  • Also briefly got to talk to Jessie--we almost never get to chat by phone because of busy schedules on both our ends--but it was nice to touch base with her.
  • Victor, Tia, and Faith came over to celebrate Victor's birthday. (His birthday was Monday but we did this on Thursday.) We played a silly board game called Quelf and had a good time eating Taco Bus food, eating cake, and bothering each other. After the ladies left, I hung out with Victor and he slept over, and we just chatted while I did my comics.
  • I ate at NY Best Pizza with Jeaux this week. Then we went to my place and chatted and listened to Welcome to Night Vale and watched the newest Legend of Korra episode.
New reviews of my book:

    Places featured:
    • Pleasure Mechanics: Chris Rose had me on the Speaking of Sex podcast. It's a nice sensitive interview, about thirty minutes long, and doesn't focus entirely on the same things everyone asks. I actually got to talk about community, what lessons we can teach each other, the diversity in the community, and some nuanced stuff on relationships. You can also hear it on Stitcher.
    • Badass Ladies: I don't really know what this is for, but I'm being suggested as someone to interview on this page. Maybe they'll follow up.
