Lesbian Lounge - October 5, 2011
This evening kicks off with Donna telling us about her impromptu happenings: A MexiQ with the gang at DaddyRah’s house, with all sorts of delicious mexi-treats, and quick decision to see a movie with Vicki, and a drive over to Fort Myers for the first concert of the year from Ben, up at school, the college senior. The ever swirling job market leaves Donna depressed and job surfing in her bathing suit on a bad day. Cubby finally gets to the doctor’s office for her bronchitis. Denise’s week started off with being stuck in traffic after gathering Jem from the airport on a Friday night. Saturday, Jem and Denise travel into London to meet up with Deb Mosk, a friend from California who is here assisting Sharon Gless during the run of “A Round Heeled Woman”. The girls showed Deb the bus routes all over Kensington and Hammersmith and had a lovely lunch at Giraffe, before walking around Holland Park and then through the Off West End Theater District. Denise announces some potential partnering with www.Planet-London.com to get the film “Jan’s Coming Out” to London for some screenings, and with www.DiversityRoleModels.org to work with Suran DIckson and youths in local schools to send an anti-bullying message and inspire and encourage positivity.
