Default A Big Fat HELLO From CC

Iím back, did you miss me? Iíve never been on the GLBTQ forums here at dimensions Ė in fact, I havenít been on dimensions in so long I forgot what it was like! Iíve spent a lot of time over the past few years dealing with a lot of crapÖand a lot of the ups and downs of life. My father recently passed away and that was a major thing for me to have to deal with (heck, Iím still dealing with the fallout from it all Ė trying to manage his estate, etc).

I wanted to (re) introduce myself to the dimensions community, particularly this part of it! I always used to feel like we needed a space for fat queers and while I found that place in NOLOSE, I felt like dimensions needed it too. After all, I met some of the coolest fat queers RIGHT HERE and made some friendships that have lasted, as well as some that have not.

So hereís a little about me:

Iím Celisa, from Vermont (USA) and Iím F-n-Q. I go to NOLOSE when I can (I couldnít make it to the last conference even though it was close by due to circumstances including but not limited to my finances). Iím 30, a singer (check out my myspace www.myspace.com/celisastratton) and a hot fat chick! Iím single too Ė email me if you want to chat sometime! Celisa at gmail dot com. I also have yahoo but am rarely on - though I'd love to chat with some new friends. I have been the target of discrimination recently by some people who would like to think that you can reject somebody for certain jobs based on sexual orientation/sexuality. I dont' want to go into details but suffice it to say I've been laying low online due to this. Maybe I'll talk about it more openly in the future, when I'm not afraid of my sexuality being used against me. Luckily, living in Vermont, you can't be discriminated against based on sexual preference (and many other things) so I am trying not to worry.

If youíre fat and queer, nolose is an awesome organization that I would highly recommend getting involved with. www.nolose.org. If youíre in the NYC area/region, they are putting together their annual Fat Girl Flea market, so check that out and get yourself some cute clothes at a great price. Speaking of this, I believe if you look around the NOLOSE website youíll find information on mailing lists such as fat dykes and other fat queer stuff that I canít remember off the top of my head, but I know they exist (I get them in my email inbox every now and again).

Alright, thatís enough for now, but I thought Iíd say hey and give a shout-out to all you queer fatties in this forum. I miss conversing with you all Ė and I miss being a part of a community that accepts me as I am.

I've missed you very much and I'm so pumped your back!

Cheesy quote that popped in my head when I saw you on the GLBTQ board!

Quote:
She gets this really terrible feeling--you know, like something is missing. She checks her purse, and then she checks her keys. She counts her kids, she goes crazy, and then she realizes that nothing is missing. She decided it was side effects from skipping the prom.
Welcome back Celisa!!

Celisa i missed you. I know life madness totally got in the way of us having a good old chatter but hopefully that will change now. I was actually thinking the other day that i have known you for about 6 years! Which made me think..hmm time totally flies and also that we should chatter more. I was thinking about this cause i just moved house and i found your Cd you sent me a few years ago. Your version of "missisippi goddam" is second only to Nina Simone.. and thats saying something! lol
Yessum, to all who havnt heard this girl sing, check out her myspace..she has some set of lungs on her!!
peace x Lisa -Like celisa but without the ce!

Haha..yessum. Got to be loud to appreciate it! Celisas Version of "Mississippi goddam" has been played at drunken parties on a couple of occassions.. I feel the killer line is "You dont have to live next to me, Just give me my equality". Its one of those clench fist, misty eyed lyrics that makes you want to cuddle people and smash eggs!! erm...or something...

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome messages.

And Misty and Lisa - You guys totally made my day. I'm literally crying. Since my father's passing, and with all the craziness in my life that has ensued since...I have all but given up on the dream of singing. I want to, but my confidence isn't at 100% right now because I've been grieving and REALLY SUPER DUPER busy taking care of my nephew.

I'm so glad to hear that people still like my music (and have played it at drunken parties). You guys made me laugh and cry and I feel good about myself in a way I haven't felt in a LONG TIME. It is so good to know that people have faith in me.

Much Love and FAT HUGS!
