One said "it wasn't as fun without you", the other said I was sorely missed at the conf. Awww. Big loves. I've only met them both a couple of times, really.
Caught up with Erica last week. Brief but lovely. Trying to catch up with Juliet this week, by going on campus for the CSAA conf. There are heaps of talks I'd love to be able to go to. eg. One of the plenary talks is given by a woman who writes about postfeminism. Ros Gill. And there's Bev Skeggs.
But I kinda have different priorities now. My school pal, Peggy, is coming over on Wed morning because she's expecting a baby soon and I have some books she might like.
Anyway, I'm going to try and get to Usyd for afternoon tea. Not sure if I really wanna gatecrash the conference as such, (particularly as conf is being organised by certain academics who have treated me like shit in the past) but at least I have an excuse to be heading in there now... catching up with Juliet. :D
Now I just have to get over my fear of public transport with pram. Actually, maybe I'll take Ev in the carrier. I was carrying her around the house in it today facing outwards and she quite liked it. So much easier having both arms free to do stuff. :)
