I'm so excited to geek out in blog mode for twenty-four live hours, with the aid of my long-time companion: The Exalted Coffee Bean!
It was hard to choose a cause- I can only blog for one organization- but I feel like we (meaning West Virginians) are at a critical time in our relationship with our bi, gay, lesbian, transgendered, and queer-identified community members. LGBTQ awareness and pride is higher than I ever remember in WV and there are movements threatening this progress.
It's incredibly hard for LGBTQ Appalachians and allies: we love the deep-rooted traditions of our mountain families but are excited for the community to expand and celebrate all expressions of love.
Support the efforts of Rainbow Pride of WV (and keep me motivated to stay awake) by sponsoring my blog at http://www.blogathon.org/pledge.php?blogid=212
*Coffee, that is. Maybe lentils, too. But mostly coffee.**
**Endnotes are adorable, but dude! (Dude hear meaning David Foster Wallace) if I go to the trouble of 1) reading your gargantuan novel on a fucking schedule*** no less, 2) maintaining separate bookmarks for the main text and the endnotes, you could do me the courtesy of not writing endnotes that are one or two words. Because I get pissy.
***I'll probably use lots of the time between blog posts to read Infinite Jest****. I am almost on track with Infinite Summer, which is (whine) hard for a working mom.
****This book is rocking my world. LOVE.
