Pink Triangle Trimester, or, I Had a Lesbian Teaching Assistant
No, its not a 50's b-movie.
It was my professional life, from 2002 until spring 2003.
She was a good drinking buddy. Addicted to everything -- coffee and cigarettes, booze and BC bud.
She lived in her office at the University Graduate Centre. Yes, it had a shower, though I suspect that she didn't make much use of it.
Hanging out with her had its perks -- the generous patronage that she enjoyed meant that there was always a lot of beer, pungent air, and attractive women in her orbit when she held court. She was a great conduit for meeting women, including the host of the campus radio sex show, "Juicebox".
The problem is, the court was always in session. And she almost single-handedly shattered my sessional career. I finished the job myself a few years later.
I'm dumb, she's a lesbian. Pinkerton -- one of the greatly neglected albums of the 1990s.
