someone has sent me a bowel movement

Quick update: I was the projectionist for a John Waters double feature last Friday, and Mink Stole hosted it (for the unaware, she's been in all of John's movies, most notably as Connie Marble in Pink Flamingos). I was pretty sure that Mink was either going to be a real delight, an utter lunatic, or a delusional B-movie superstar, but I did not expect her to be as nice and welcoming as she was. She answered fan questions between films and was just the nicest person on Earth, and very proud of the work she'd done with John and elsewhere. Most people, even the cool ones, would have been embarrassed in Mink's shoes, looking back at some of the stuff she'd done, but Mink totally owned it and was just awesome.

She also, upon seeing the "I <3 Vaginas" shirt* that I wore for the occasion, told me that "oh hey, I have a vagina!" Sometimes my job is great, is what I'm trying to say.

*My alma mater's Women's Center had them made when they put on The Vagina Monologues one year, and I bought one. I kinda had to, ya know?
