I'm doing Vagina Monologues at my school this year. Never have before, though a few of my friends have, and they're all doing it this year too, so it will be fun. And I got a pretty big part, which is neat. It's been so long since I've done any kind of acting. The piece I'm doing is called "Crooked Braid." It's pretty intense. Sad. I like it a lot. It's based on interviews by Eve Ensler with women from the Oglala Lakota Nation on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Here, have a look:

I hope I do it justice.

I've also decided to write my english capstone on Octavia Butler's "Xenogenesis" trilogy, "No Woman Born" by C.L. Moore, Judith Butler's feminist/gender theory stuff ("Gender Trouble") and Donna Haraway's "Cyborg Manifesto." Yeah. I'm pretty excited for it.
