"What are you going to do when the world turns in on you?"

Sorry there's been a lack of updates, dear readers. Battle fatigue set in sometime late last week and I found myself limping through the days in a mood that can only be described as disillusioned. By next week I'll be entering the fifth month of OFTL and though I have a lot to show for my efforts, I can't shake the feeling that I haven't been as successful as I would have liked.

On Friday I organized a happy hour for Lesbian Club in a Lower East Side bar. And as with most LC events, there's always the chance that I will be the only one that shows up. Boy was I pleasantly surprised when seven of my regulars showed up. Later some of us went to the Slipper Room for a burlesque show -- the first time I've been back since a certain incident last November.

So after a lackluster and rain soaked weekend mostly spent watching movies, I slumped into Monday, sick again with a cough. I went back to my old Bushwick bar for Movie Night and gin -- two cures for the blues -- and got a much needed pep talk from some friends there. Too bad I had to sit through the unbelievably awful Disclosure starring Demi Moore and Michael Douglas.

Something else that should cheer me up. Dennise was inspired by my Phase III of OFTL and decided to go to the mountain . . . so to speak. She asked a guy out from her dining group to be her date for an upcoming gala. The guy said yes and now I feel rather proud that OFTL can inspire the Straights too!

The idea of you as the Grand Poobah presiding over seven lesbians would make me smile, and maybe stare a little...

It's my budding harem. Hmmm. That thought put a smile on my face.
