Public post about the review, now with 30% less ranting abut the conference!

I went to a conference this past weekend (the 13th through the 15th). I didn't tell many people about it, mostly because I was freaking out about it and so I didn't want anyone to know. It was in Bloomington, Indiana, and it was called the Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Ally College Conference (or MBLGTACC, which we quaintly pronounced "Mumble Tech"). This was the first GAY conference I ever went to (God my grammar is bad) and I was freaking out and anxious the whole time. Of course it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I knew it wasn't going to be as bad as I thought it was going to be, but that's not the point. You can't deny that in my life, things usually are as bad or worse than I think they're going to be, so I worry a lot. It's what I do.

I could insert a lot of things here that are going to sound really melodramatic and sappy and stupid, things like how it was cool being around so many other weird people, and it was nice not being the only freak, and I have a lot of stories I do want to tell if anyone wants to hear them, and a lot of information bubbling around in my head that excites me...God I miss college. For example, I now know way more about Intersexuality than any of you (she said arrogantly and possibly erroneously) and I want to talk to people about it because I miss having these discussions. I really do miss college. sigh. Anyway, the conference was amazing, and I'm really glad I went.

ANYWAY, here's the fun part. On the second day of the conference, I surprised myself by breaking off from the group (which is hard to do when you're in another State, in an unfamiliar city, on a campus that's roughly five times the size of the one you're used to, and you're panicking in sheer fucking terror) because we were attending different workshops, and I really wanted to attend the one put on by the theater geek actor who was going to be performing his one-man play "And He Ran Screaming." I was so blown away by this workshop that I actually attended it twice, going to the next session a few hours later. I got home bursting at the seams with all the things I wanted to say, and I wrote a review of the play and sent it to my boss at the website I write for.

Please please please go to http://www.cinema-crazed.com/0-g/andheranscreaming.htm and read the review. It's my baby. I'm really proud of it.

Look, it's even on the main page: http://www.cinema-crazed.com (scroll down about halfway; it's on the right)
