Ok, I'm A Little Excited

So, I went to Barnes and Nobles tonight and was browsing through the Gay and Lesbian studies section, you know, just for fun, when I saw this book, Bi Any Other Name: Bisexual People Speak Out.

How cool is that?!

I can't wait to start reading it. I kind of wish I didn't have so much reading for school to do as well.

But the back reads:
"Rejected by both gay and straight worlds, bisexuals have been a community in exile. With this rich and varied collection, however, bisexual women and men step forward into their own historical spotlight. The writing here, challenging and authentic, can only deepen our discussions about passion and politics."

"The authors debunk the concept that people are either heterosexual or homosexual and that bisexual women and men are fence sitters. Bi Any Other Name will help tremendously in securing movement for genuine progressive social change- a movement that will ultimately liberate us all."

Totally awesome, I know.

Art, now book, yeah, I'm a little bit of a dork.

I never knew how much fun it could be to "sit on the fence"... yeah... someone finally wrote a book about it, huh? Now see? I just KNEW there were lots of perks to swinging both ways...

Big hugs!
That has just got to be the quote of the week for me:
"Don't wait too long to find out how short life is"... bravo!!

Thanks for the reminder. Introspection and self-realization is great but sometimes you've just got to get out there and live a little. I LOVE Fall (Happy birthday, by the way!).

Fall is a time for reflection for me, but also a time for enjoying nature's beauty (though there is no real Fall to speak of where I am, surrounded by palm trees). I miss the mountains most at this time of year...

Big hugs,
A Spanking Good Time
