Because it's fun, right?

Yeah. I have to remember that. I volunteered for this. And today is D-day.

Today is the day when people start arriving for the MDI Big Gay Weekend thing that I am coordinating. Tonight is the coffehouse/open mic/storytelling thing with ice cream, hot fudge sauce, desserts and coffee. Tomorrow is the big potluck picnic. I have forbidden the skies to rain, so we'll see how that goes.

This morning I was up at 6 preparing two kinds of baklava. I jokingly refer to them as "male" and "female" baklava. The female version is made with dried cranberries, spiced apples and raisins. The male version is a traditional recipe. You figure it out.

I've got eight million things to do today, so this is all we get for brilliant prose this morning. I shall have a full report later. Now I've got to decorate the hall for tonight. What it will look like with two butch girls decorating is anyone's guess. We really need a gay man for this, but we're fresh out. Maybe we'll draft one of our straight girl friends to supervise. Otherwise it will be done in duct tape, two-by-fours and sixteen-penny nails. I am building the flagpole out of 1 1/4 inch metal conduit. Anyone who doesn't like it can volunteer to do all this shit next year.
