feelin' the femmo love  
Touched that two of the lovely Australian femmo women I met when I went to the big UK conference have both contacted me to catch up while they're in Syd for AWGSA and CSAA.

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. :)

I was going to ask in the other post whether you have a carrier that you could use. Much easier than using the pram on PT, though I have done this too and it's been fine. Having said that, it was always relatively uncrowded buses, but I think people are generally nice and help you out and make space.

Carrier is very useful for PT. My main concern with it for tomorrow is that it is hot to wear. And also that I've not used it for a long period of time... not sure if Ev would nap in it ok, or just be cranky the entire time. At least with a pram I can put her in and cover her up and let her snooze.

I might try bussing with pram tomorrow (it's not a long trip, but potentially crowded bus...although not peak time) and I can always walk back with it if bus is too horrible to repeat. We'll see.

Ah yes, they do get VERY hot and sweaty in carriers.

Good luck!
