Green Room - Week 21 - Day 4

Cynthia came into the room this morning and said "Why are you still here?"

That's when I realized it wasn't Saturday! Oops.

Of course, I should have known that because I didn't post a poll the night before. Because everyone knows the deadline for contestants to get their entries in is Friday evening!

So if you've been oversleeping, it's time to wake up!

I ended up getting to work late, but fortunately the fact that I'm more awake means that I've probably ended up getting just about the same amount of work done! ;)

***

What have you been "sleeping on"? How are you going to wake up in the Top 10? (or for those of you who are not in the Top 10, are there any "sleepers" in the ranks that you think people need to be paying more attention to, because they are awesome and you never hear enough people talking about their work?)

I wish I'd been sleeping on something. :( All balls are in the air now, nothing dropped yet! Summer is kicking off, and boy howdy there's a lot to do!

You've had time to take up juggling? ;)

What is sleep? It sounds vaguely familiar. I just haven't done it in over three years...

It's just a nasty rumor that people without babies started to mess with your addled sleep-deprived minds. They are just trying to get to you.

I sleep on my bed, when I can sleep.

I'm not telling the final ten anything! They're in the top ten. I'm not. Clearly they know what they're doing. 😊

I have been sleeping on a big bed at a resort in the Bahamas, where I'm spending a few days for my friend's destination wedding.

It's weird being at a resort. Not bad... just... weird. And makes me have all kinds of thoughts regarding colonialism. Heh. Overthinking tropical island vacations: the lrig_rorrim story. I'm just glad there was good wifi so I could get my entries posted (priorities, yo. I have some. Whether or not they're good ones depends on who you ask).

I misread that as "having second thoughts about colonialism". ;)

We had another interesting student behavior conundrum on campus yesterday that caused me to lose some sleep.

Student film festival. Two films in particular. In one film, a transgender female student of ours created a video where the voice over was her describing how she felt like the fact that she looks male makes it hard for other people to use the correct pronouns when they interact with her. The video was of her getting dressed and it starts with her topless from the back looking very male indeed. I had given this film the thumbs up because I thought it made an important challenging statement about body vs identity and, furthermore, its very timely.

A second film featured a character being punished by being forced to dress like a woman and go on a date with a man. I think the comedy came across as "haha misogyny and homophobia are hilarious." I had not seen this film in advance but would have said "no way" if the teachers had asked me.

As it happens, we received complaints about the first film but not a peep about the second. Furthermore, the teachers gave the second film a script award.

So, yeah, that happened.

That outcome makes my heart hurt. I guess the kindest way to look at it is that people prefer not to be challenged - about lots of different things. :/

Shed a tear for "Tihadrian dimorphous chloride is a hell of a drug." It deserved better.

Please forgive me, Gary--everyone. Pleases could you send good thoughts, prayers, or positive energy for our Alberta city of Fort McMurry. It has been evacuated because of a wildfire the size of New York City. One displaced man told a reporter, "We're not evacuees. We're refugees. We've lost everything." TPTB are calling it the largest natural disaster in the history of Canada.

Sorry. Just needed to reach out. Thanks.

Good thoughts to you. Love to Alberta.

::hugs::

I heard about that when I read whipchick's entry this week. I didn't realize you were from there. I'm so sorry.

You're in my thoughts.

<3 All the good thoughts headed in that direction. You take care of you, too - and if that means reaching out, that's more than ok.
