Got out to the spring drag show put on by the college GSA, and got some decent photos. I’ve got them all up on my flickr. Couple thoughts while they are fresh in my mind.
My body either isn’t recovered from the surgery, or it’s got something else going on from the recovery time, as i had to bow out early. I almost felt like i wasn’t going to make it to my car, body aches and pains just too strong. :P So tired of this shit, want to be active again.
Not nearly as many people this time, filled all seats, but unlike the last fall one, you could move around freely. Last fall it was solid people. I noticed that the daily email that goes out didn’t even have a mention of it in there. Sometimes it hasn’t, sometimes it had. I have a paranoid feeling whoever does it doesn’t want to mention it. I could be wrong, but never know.
Several performers were from out of town, i caught UW-Stout (Menomonie, which is about half an hour away) and UW-Eau Claire, which is quite a bit farther, over an hour i believe. That’s pretty cool, i’m not sure if they have events like this there or not, but it’s cool that word is getting out.
I was surprised that besides SART being where tips to the performers were being donated, that it was also going to the Tri-Angels park and Jessica Schaffhausen got up to explain it. Short version, her ex-husband who had moved out of state called her and told her he had just killed his daughters. He was telling the truth. She has since remarried and was very pregnant when speaking. She got a standing ovation, and people seemed to tip more after that.
I’m probably forgetting something, body still hurts, seems mad at me. Was worth it though.
