The DataLounge Convention in the Jacob Javits Center in NYC

Having a great time at the end of the first day! It was good to see some faces to put with the personalities I've learned to love.

I went to the punctuation symposium which was surprisingly good. That Randolf is HOT! I mean jacked! And he really knows his punctuation. I think he should be promoted from assistant to full-Punctuationist, but I'm just an amateur,

There is a room showing videos of mooses 7x24, that was entertaining after a few gin and tonics.

Apparently there was some bonding on an AMTRAK yesterday and that's prompted a high stakes, invitation only whist game.

I hear Henry Cavill will be here tomorrow! Very excited.

The caftan venders are pretty aggressive. Almost as bad as the scooter salesman. Just extend your palm in the "stop in the name of love" position and exclamation "Nein!", and they will leave you alone. It works for me.

He wanted to go to the Central Park Zoo, since "he's in the business" he said, but I think he just wanted to visit the animals and children. He was mobbed for a while. Some of the children confused him with Big Bird. Are all NYC children that dumb? He doesn't look like a yellow chicken.

He did walk them them through the zoo animals in alphabetical order en espanol and en Françes. People were amazed to see a bi-lingual Moose; but I think they are all around us, we just don't know they're bi.

The Moose said that he likes the way Manhattan smells, you know that big proboscis of his is notoriously sensitive; anyway, so I said "What are you, a barn animal?" So, he's still not speaking to me. We're traveling together tomorrow, too, ugh!

R229, my husband and I are NOT traveling any farther than where we can see the skyscrapers, even for the soaps sessions, which are the only reason we planned this trip to Noo Yark City in the first place.

As the only two out gay men in West Fargopolis, we can't afford the risk of being killed by zombies or whatever else is roving around in a place called Peapack. If it were Fudgepack we might reconsider, but we're not into your big-city water sports. Our water is too hard and full of minerals and breaks the skin if it travels more than two feet.

I love the program you laid out, though. Damn. Do you know if they're doing any remote feeds to the main convention site? We'd pay for it. Plus I heard there's going to be a special "Secret Storm" retrospective that sounds perfect for our tastes. But we have to get to the bus station by 4 on Saturday.

r224/ r245 Soaps tend to be the red headed stepchild that DL wants to basically ignore. I sincerely doubt you'll get any DL officials to pay for the live feed from Peapack to the Convention Center. And even if they did agree, Peapack is so remote, cell phones don't work there, so satellite feeds would be difficult.

I suggest that you and your husband just suck it up and come to Peapack. You will be perfectly safe. We do have some zombie wranglers here to protect attendees -- Frank Valentini and Greg Meng. Plus Melody Thomas Scott and her husband Ed Scott are going to stand on werewolf watch for the entire event.

I understand Lillian Hayman is offering taxi service to Peapack, departing from the parking garage across from the convention center. Just wave your pink reservation slip and she'll pull right up for you.

Many events have been added to the schedule. During a special cocktail reception Mary Alice Dwyer-Dobbin will be on hand to accept the Wizened Old Man Award. Meanwhile, Elaine Princi will conduct a town-hall meeting about her soap career (Please Note, an exceptionally large contingent of Kate Winograd fans has been camped out since Sunday waiting for this once-in-a-lifetime event, so space for last minute walk-ins will likely be limited).

New seminars include Kathy Glass explaining the ins and outs of Q ratings and Robin Strasser leading a special seminar on over-the-top acting. Megan McTavish will offer tips on headwriting and building loyalty among your writing staff. Chuck Pratt is also offering a special writing seminar about honoring a show's history and legacy (an extra fee is required to attend).

Finally, Jill Farren Phelps is leading a multi-part retrospective examining the befores and afters of each of the six shows she helmed. (Please Note, since this seminar will last most of the day, Melissa Reeves has offered to provide a box lunch from Chick fil-A so attendees don't miss a second).

R251 (aka R242) continues her illiteracy by misspelling "Divine."

Honestly. Don't the authorities review the attendees' credentials before permitting entrance?

She should at least have been issued a brown badge so the VIPs and special guests would know to avoid her. Or she could have attended the "Basic English Skills for DL Use" pre-session, offered to Auxiliary members of the DL. Corky from "Life Goes On" presented!

r260 The doors to the church are always open. Father Eric Brady will be on hand to hear Confessions at St. Brigid throughout the convention. He was surely bless your soul and give you penance. Just don't let him drink any of the wine.

The Doug Davidson event has been sold out for quite some time. However, we have added a Schlong-Off between Grant Aleksander and Jake Silberman that might satisfy you.

There's also a Mumble-Off planned where we hope Maurice Benard and Eric Braeden will attend. We've contacted them repeatedly but never can understand their answers, so we are unable to confirm their attendance. As a backup, Drake Hogestyn and Ronn Moss have agreed to be on standby to offer acting tips for prospective actors.

As for lodging, the eight rooms at Peapack's motel have been booked for months. However, you likely wouldn't have any need for that. Just bring your sleeping bag since you'll want to camp out in front of the VFW Club waiting to get a good seat for the Diva-Off scheduled for the last day. Dee Dee Halls and Sue Loochi are both confirmed as are Kim Zimmer, Victoria Rowell, Laura Wright, Michelle Stafford, Susan Seaforth Hayes, Heather Tom and Liz Hubbard. We're hoping Viki Sleestack will also join in on those festivities with them, but she's having trouble shipping her six Emmys to the event (seems Fed Ex can't guarantee delivery to Peapack and Viki doesn't trust the US Postal Service; maybe DHL will be able to accomplish the task) . And as a special guest, we'll have Julianne Moore. Seriously.

Please note that the Peapack Quickee Mart will extend its hours beyond its normal 8 p.m. closing time to midnight to accommodate the influx of conventioneers. Steve Burton will have a special booth there selling Monavie juice and Freddie Smith will offer Nerium face cream. If you like the products, they will gladly sign you up for a distribution deal.

So sorry that I'm late to the DL convention festivities. I was dragged off of my United Airlines flight from KC after my mussy queefed in R270's fug face for talking about my momma. I'd had dairy and the other passengers complained vociferously.

My KC Chiefs booth is temporarily closed due to a grease fire that accidentally started as I was preparing chicken wings for the Darfur orphan.

I've been trying to find a way from Staten Island to Manhattan for the last eight days. I don't know how I got here except the man on the boat said that for $150 he would deliver me to right where the Javits Center was and it was such a long day getting to La Guardia from Jackson, Mississippi that I thought going by sea would be faster. It Staten Island in the United States? The people talk so funny and there are so many ugly dogs running the streets. Is this Cuba? Where am I? I was only coming for the Golden Girls Props Auction because I wanted to see if I could get Lelia Kenzle's autograph. I'm so scared and cold and hungry. Please help. My friend Irna left the dock this morning to look for assistance and I haven't seen her since. Oh, God. I think they're Yankees!

Sistyrs of Convention, I have the announcement you've all been waiting for: the entrant of differentiated honor in our Heartsong Share!

I type to you from my hearth, with sleepy cats purring and a rough-hewn earthen bowl of mugwort tea cradled in my good hand. After much meditation, the Board of Egalitarian Discernment has left the yurt carrying the Heartsong we feel best exemplifies our shared experience at Convention! As always, we are available to discourse this choice with you and perhaps reopen voting should that be desired. Blessed be!


One-breasted womon

Pendulous tattooed bud

Single Cleistocactus blossom

Undulating swirls of red and pink

Spin around life bringer

Milk springer

Like the sacred triple spiral

Brought forth from the sharp sting of ph*llic spines and areoles

I, her suckling

Rebirthed in her flame

I am sucking

Releasing my Pain

My Chain

Poisoned brain




Rebirthed in her flame

I, Aodh!

I, Gaia Caecilia!

I, Hestia!

I, Sekhmet!

I, Aibheaog!

I, Itzpapalotl!

I, Mahuika!

I, Brigid!

I am life-bringer

Rebirthing in my flame

I bring forth Beltane

The fur of my loins

Catches womb dewdrops

Fur dreamcatcher


Fire and Honey

Flows sacred nectar

Drink, one-breasted womon

That I may rebirth you

In my flame

Your flame

We flame


Drink from me

One-breasted womon

I, your mothyr

I, your daughtyr

I, your sistyr

I, You
