nell: i'm back finally
where did i leave that fatted calf?
nell: my thoughts exactly
i am about to read tamara knopper's piece... i get a lot of anonymous shout outs on your blog....
me: ya i know
c the thing is
[my gf] got mad at me when i linked to your name's google search results
i wuz liek, i wanted to credit and she was like nell deserves privacy
nell: if only i had an online identity, such as a blog... or a guest feature profile on your blog..... if only
me: ya if only!
READERS WANT TO KNOW:
"Dear Nell, I hear you are very interested in things like racial and economic justice. Do you think that's more important than gay marriage?"
nell: i refuse to answer that question
me: haha U HAVE TO
nell: well... instead of answering, i will tell you a brief, illustrative story:
me: OK I HAS BAITED BREATH
nell: i was canvassing with a union rep from [REDACTED] named [REDACTED] and he actually had decent race and gender politics, at least insofar as he expressed distaste for his boat club compatratriots who are unwilling to vote for a woman or a black man event though they are allegedly democrats....then, we are driving along and
we canvass at a house where there are two "male" snowmen and two male names listed as registered voters in the house. [REDACTED] remarks later, "those two male snowmen and two male names worried me a bit. i thought they might be a little goofy."
me: lol wut
nell: then he went on to describe a friend of his who has a brother who is likewise "a little goofy" and calls him his boyfriend when they see each other at the bowling place
and then i tittered a little bit
and then we went on with our day
me: WTF U TITTERED?
nell: yes, i admit it.... i tittered
me: wait what does that have to do with gay marriage being more important than race
nell: it doesn't have much to do with anything.... i also admit that
homophobia is teh sux00r
at least yr coworkers don't talk about strip clubs and call each other 'bro'
AT LEAST YOU'RE NOT A TRANSSEXUAL.
nell: my coworkers have their issues... BUT, if you are pointing out that i have may things to be grateful for..... YOU ARE RIGHT
so i can put this convo on my blog right?
i'll redact specific identificatory details
nell: hmmmmmm ok
everything is about your blog
