June 29th, 2007 at 12:57 am

I’ve been thinking a lot about some of the words that get thrown around when topics around sex work come up.

Jeez, it took me a bit to get around to writing this… but, better late than never. Last Monday, Jamye, Eliyanna and I finally piled into my car around 1 pm, just after finding out that our first stop of the day, The Jersey Boys radio show, had been canceled. Apparently they’ve been having some […]

The Final Day: Driving, Passional and Philly

June 23rd, 2007 at 2:57 pm

How Eliyanna and I spent 7 hours on Friday. Well, I drove the first half, she did the second. She’s sporting a $pread fake tattoo, which is awesome. Upon arrival in Philly we went to the Mutter Museum (their tagline is “disturbingly informative” and it is). Lots of more (and more disturbing) photos are on […]

From Baltimore to Durham

June 21st, 2007 at 12:01 am

Today I didn’t have a book event, but we drove from Baltimore into DC to do some interviews for $pread, and then to Durham to eat delicious grilled meat and spend time with awesome company.

This lovely image, made by this dude greeted me from my inbox this morning. I’m going to be on the road in about an hour, roadtripping with Eliyanna and Jamye (well, Jamye just for today). I’m going to try to blog while I’m on the road, but if that doesn’t happen or is less than […]

June 15th, 2007 at 6:26 pm

IMG_0874 Originally uploaded by viviane212 Week two of book press insanity is behind me now, which is a bit of a relief, but some of the stuff I did/had written about me this week is definitely worth being proud of. On Monday morning I did a five minute appearance on the Brian Lehrer show on […]
