This is what a feminist looks like!

This mask makes me Isadorable 
We had a adventurous tour to Old Dominion University.  It began with an exciting flight to Norfolk.  After a hiccup on the runway, the plane needed a “reboot” - the pilot explained it was just like ctr-alt-delete for us PC users.  As you can imagine, we were all a bit worried. However once in the air, the flight went smoothly and we soon found ourselves in the green and lush state of Virginia.

For the first time ever – everyone in the audience at ODU got a banana!  But they deserved it - what great and supportive audience showed up for “Silence is Violence”.  Thanks to all for taking the night off from your studies to spend the evening with us.  We had the pleasure of working with ODU student, Josh, who volunteered to jump into the action of our show without looking back.  Josh, you are a  fabulous improviser.  I loved your genuine and earnest responses during the improvs.  Your enthusiasm and energy certainly gave us the extra boost we to fight violence against women. To show you what I mean, here's one improv we did called "tongue twisters".  That's me and Cena watching a football game with Josh as our frat bro. 

Thanks to those who stayed after the show to chat with us, take photos and have your posters signed.  It’s wonderful to hear the stories from the trenches of the hard working feminists we meet everywhere we go.

Before we left Norfolk, we got a chance to explore their lovely
Norfolk Botanical Garden.   We saw enchanted forests, colorful butterflies, and baby bald eagles in a nest high in the sky.  It was beautiful place and a great way to spend out last few hours in town.

Thanks for a great last tour of our 2011/12 season. Until next time.

Peace and love,
