Maxi Glamour reading the Purim Megillah to our synagogue, our Rabbis all in drag, people in costumes drinking (I had absinthe), dancing to David Bowie –what can I say, it was fabulous and hilarious, especially Maxi’s version of the Megillah story, and Rabbi Daniel totally in drag, waving his booze bottle around! I personally got to meet Maxi, a very talented artist, musician, activist, etc., and do a little photo shoot with them and Avdi! Their costume was gorgeous, all handmade. (They told me their pronouns.)
I feel so fortunate to be able to go to a synagogue that is so progressive and inclusive, also with a sense of humor! And have it be the scene of my first experience (yes, somehow I was a drag virgin). I’m thankful that Avdi, though not feeling his best, wanted to go and take me, and even helped with my outfit. I’m lucky and proud.
Wow. Anything else I write will sound so mundane! I planted the rest of the root crops–beets, turnips, parsnips, and rutabagas, also leeks. The bulb flowers are really gearing up. I did some prep work for planting more indoor flats. Avdi and K. really enjoyed the hamantaschen I baked. I spent the night, then came home and did some more prep for the next wave of germination. Tonight Avdi, Jess, K., and I are going to get to see RRR in its return to theaters! I can’t wait. Also another excuse to dress accordingly. It seems to be my latest phase.
