July 21st, 2001


(no subject)

I now have a paid account. Yay!

To celebrate this fact, I've created a new icon for myself - a StorTrooper standing in front of a bi pride flag. I like it, anyway.

I also created this picture using tools in The Gimp. As I'm not normally particularly artistic, I thought I'd display it here as a token of my great courage.

schedule-type thing.

I thought I'd better make a note of all of the events I've said I'll be at so that I can figure out what I'm doing with myself over the next few weeks:

* Sat 21st July - Karaoke party in Islington.

* Wed 25th July - Melisma gig at Gossips. I haven't actually managed to make any of the gigs they've done in all the time I've known Anne and James, so I shall be trying extra hard to get to this one.

* Fri 27th July - London Bi social. Somewhere near London Bridge.

* Sun 29th July - lesbian short films at the Dalston Rio, if I can get tickets.

* Wed 1st August - Final Fantasy film at the NFT with Tim and Peter.

* Thurs 2nd August - Me, You, Them - the new Brazilian poly film, again at the NFT.

* Fri 3rd August - there's a poly meet in Cambridge, if I can be bothered to go (not sure if I'll be able to afford it after travelling into London 2 days running).

* Sat 4th August - Bournemouth Pride, again if I can be bothered to go. I'm tempted on the basis it's the first ever Pride in Bournemouth, but it's a long way and the train's not cheap.

* Sat 11th August - Brighton Pride, which I'm definitely going to.

* Wed 15th August - my mum's birthday.

* Thurs 16th August - Tribute to Douglas Adams at the NFT.

* Fri 17th August - uk-poly meal, somewhere in London.

* August Bank Holiday weekend - BiCon, if I can afford it.

email sent.

I met someone at a party in February. We really seemed to hit it off. Unfortunately, we were going back to different countries after the party was over - but we left with each other's email addresses.

We exchanged a few emails. Then I reacted badly to something she said. She got back in contact a few weeks later to clarify things, and I thought about writing back, but didn't. As I did want to let her know how I was feeling, I specifically set aside the weekend of 12th May to write, but events caught up with me and I had other things to do.

I tried to write again on May 22nd, but my heart wasn't in it. And since then I have procrastinated my way through another couple of months, talking about her in LiveJournal but not actually getting in touch with her.

Well, I finally sent that email.

Now I have to wait for a response.
