A lady named Cheryl(!) describes her Michfest experience

She was working kitchen detail:

"We were informed, as we stood in line getting our serving instructions, that there would be possibly as many as 12 000 womyn at the 25th Womyn's Music Festival, and that many of them - many of them - have issues about food. It was not our job, as servers, to deal with food issues, it was merely our job to issue food."

"We were, therefore, to serve each camper what we personally considered a "reasonable portion."(Go to the line with the fat servers.) If the camper requested more, we were to halve that portion and serve it. If they asked for more, we were to halve it again. If they had questions about the ingredients of the food, we were to direct them to the board in front of the tent that listed all of the ingredients in everything we served."

"Our kitchen staff womyn assured us: "we have enough food. At no time, should you ever tell a womyn "No, you can't have more food."

^This story inevitably ends with a womyn showing up with a pail, asking for it to be filled with food "for several womyn" and then the kitchen running out of salad.

That's OK. As a fat womon on garbage detail, I can always find more than enough food to eat.

How much is half a trough, and half a half-trough agayn?

Excerpt is from Cheryl Peck's book "Fat Girls and Lawn Chairs." She's funny. Loved this, from her Michfest chapter:

"I do not always understand the way New Free Lesbians (NFL) communicate with each other. I have assiduously avoided "Processing" for nearly thirty years now. Processing is the method by which six lesbians who fundamentally disagree with each other sit down together and explore in great depth every conceivable nuance of every imaginable interpretation of every feeling any of them have ever had until they come to a workable consensus. They keep telling me it works. It seems time-consuming to me."

Processing, from the Lesbian Handbook!

Excuse me, serving womon, how do I know this meat didn't come from a male animal?

As a female, these women seem tedious as hell.

Learn basic sentence structure, you cunt.

"As a female, I FIND these women tedious as hell."

Is she the female equivalent of David Sedaris? I'd never heard of her. Too bad Cheryl wasn't there the year of the shigella outbreak. That would have made for some fine reading.

Michfest 2007 memories...

[quote]“We are in the presence of multiple, swirling presences. I sense them here. They are our foresisters. We are creating the archaic future through biophilic connectedness… The red of nemesis is here. We can’t stop now. We have overcome. And we do not need any penile injections to be effective!”

Plus: Afia Walking Tree leads the drumming!

Bonus: In the comments section, Fest her-storians recall the Year of Shigella -- "I also learned that Fest does such a good job of preparing a LOT of food quickly and safely that the military has sent people in to learn from the Fest kitchen!"

Also, one of the workshop leaders is Rejoyce InLight. That would be the best drag name EVER.

R18, if you start a sentence with "as a female," the next word must necessarily be "I" or "she."

You wouldn't say "As a female, we are going to Michfest this summer," would you?
