    Hey Fey!

    Congrats on the sale of the condo despite feeling of leaving behind the good times there.

    I kinda agree with your thoughts on “It gets better”. Although it’s great that someone is actually doing something about LGBT youth suicide, it is a bit of a trite statement.

    This may be my religious upbringing coming out, but I feel that people that kill themselves are really selfish, not thinking about the world of pain that they are going to inflict on all the people that do care for them. Instead only focusing on their own pain and suffering.

    How about the “You can make your life better!” campaign?

    Anyways…

    Take care,

    Fey,

    Congrats on the sale of the Superhero’s Lair! I know it is sad to see a place go with so many memories, but you didn’t sell the memories, you only sold bricks and mortar. A home is where you are with those you love. So time to make new memories.

    Yes I went to IDS West this year. It was really good and I enjoyed it a lot. I saw Karim Rashid speak and he was amazing. Also lots of amazing products from local vendors. All design, no mops and blender type stands. I didn’t write a report on my blog about it because I really didn’t take photos and I’ve been too busy. You’ll have to go next year for sure.

    Finally, on your It Gets Better rant. I know that like an overplayed song, it can get annoying. But I have to respectfully disagree with you that today’s youth might not find it useful. When I was young, and there was no internet, I didn’t have people telling me it’s ok to be gay. If I did, maybe I’d have more self confidence today and not have let the bullys get to me so much. But when I see videos of mainstream artists, the president, straight people, all kinds of people saying that it’s NOT ok to bully someone, and that it’s OK to be gay, well that would have been a dream to hear.

    Just my 2 cents 🙂

    Have a great Halloweeen!
