How out are you to your families about being poly? / Changing topics, could you ever imagine having a personal jet?
How open are you - specifically with family members - regarding your relationships?
Not at all, on both counts, though I'd like to come out to mine. Maybe this year. (I am out at work.) No personal jet. So wasteful!
How open are you to meeting new people? I have a longtime friend, a Boston native, who has just moved back. She's a single mom with an invisible disability (FMS and CFS). She's fiercely creative, and she needs friends.
Definitely open, but I'm coming out of a few months where I haven't had time even for many of my existing friends, so I can't yet promise that I won't meet her once and just disappear off the face of the earth. Hopefully I'll manage to carve out more time soon, but I'm not yet sure when things will stabilize.
What do you do to keep rape culture from crossing the line from your work to your monofocus?
You mean it's not my monofocus? Heh.
Seriously, though, I think it's that I have so much else going on. Kid stuff, partner stuff, writing stuff, cons, making things. There is no room for one thing to utterly dominate.
What is most exciting to you in life?
To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women Two things: publications yay, and really good BARCC engagement where you can see social change happening right there in the audience.
What do you miss most about being 'Song Who Just Arrived in Boston, the You of a few years back? What do you miss least?
I don't think there's been much of a change, so I don't know that there's stuff to miss! Miss least? Unpacking boxes?

Do you have a free afternoon next week to hang out?
...I may have a free afternoon in February? Definitely not this week. It'll be my first "normal" workweek, and I need to get a routine established, as not having one has been making me twitchy and flail-y.
What is your legal name?
After my next paycheck, and soon as the state processes the paperwork, it'll be Shira Lipkin. (Yeah, I know I was supposed to do that like two years ago. Wind Tunnel Dreams money kept going to groceries and household stuff.)
Would you ever do a panel with me at Arisia?
I'm not opposed to it, but we don't have the same taste in panels at all, it seems, so it's unlikely. The con's too short to be on panels I don't want to be on! :)
