All the small things

Every so often I change my Gchat status message. It's usually stuff like "vote for BARCC for $THING!" or "sponsor me for $EVENT!" People tend to ignore it, I think.

Right now it's, below my name, "has loved you for years".

Just got pinged by beloved ex and still dear friend kires: "And I, you. Happy mother's day."


Thinking of small things reminds me of a fun moment from the Slutwalk yesterday (note: Dave is 6'5"):

Me: "Having Dave in my line of sight during my speech was a bit help. It's the small things."
Jaclyn: "Dave is not a small thing!"
Me: "So I've heard."
Jaclyn: *splorfle*

...made doubly amusing by the additional presence of one of Dave's exes; I don't know if they ever got that far, but I note that she grinned and looked away. :)

EDIT: kires has called me "Discovery Channel hardcore", which I am keeping.

I'm surprised that that wasn't time for one of your "always far more apt that other people's" 'that's what she said' comments.

(also, Dave is totally adorable. and really funny.)

Isn't he awesome? I'm not kidding that one of the great things about volunteering at BARCC is the company I get to keep.

Dave writes for the BARCC blog, too. And he was my very first survivor speaker accompaniment.

(I hope I did okay on the speech; it's *so* different from my usual version.)

I thought you were great, and while I think I said so yesterday, you had lots of people grabbing you and wanting little bits, and so I'll put that here in plain old writing: it was a good, understated, and very moving speech.

Thank you. :)

It's usually longer (but it rained) and a lot more understated!

I think following Jacqueline, it was really the best thing; she worked people up, and following her in that vein would have been hard. but taking it the quieter, more thoughtful way actually made *both* speeches more effective.

Yep... just by the nature of my speech, it was not going to be as rabble-rousing as hers! She's fantastic, too. They told me I'd be following her and I was like "Oh that is not even fair."

I think I was trying to be genteel or something. Or maybe I was just tired.

mostly seems to have the "Yes, I said yes..." text, when I look at it. I hadn't noticed the change 'till I read this.

I pay attention! I just haven't seen you on with the new one, and you're ALWAYS busy when I look.
