Happy New Year & Quick Update

I "came out of the closet" in South Carolina at age 18. At that time, the most frequent topic of conversation among my gay/lesbian friends was "almost getting found out" by people we were not "out" to. 

I tell you this tidbit to explain why I'm still marveling at what we just accomplished by funding Saint Harridan. Are you with me on this? I certainly could not have worn a suit in 1985- even if I weren't gay. And now - well - the President of the United States is pro-gay, Columbia, South Carolina has an ordinance that prevents discrimination on the basis of gender identity, and Saint Harridan just raised over $137k! Happy 2013! Happy New Era!!

Update:

I took a smallish vacation between the end of the Kickstarter campaign and New Year's Day, and because I am from South Carolina, I feel guilty about that. But, I'm back now, and am starting to work on your orders. :-) 

1. If your order is not clear to me, you will hear from me first, probably today or tomorrow.

2. Once I have clarified all orders, I'll be working out a plan to receive information from you related to sizing and such. 

3. I have a large backlog of emails, so if you are in that queue, I apologize and will likely respond to you by Friday.

4. The Kickstarter tools for managing orders are very (very!) limited. Therefore, I may be looking for other ways to communicate, which will hopefully not add too much burden to your life.

Thank you again and again!!
