Like all good lesbian stereotypes, our relationship was heavy on the Ani D music in the early days. We’ve since broadened our musical scope and even been brave enough to criticise Ms DiFranco for the last few albums but deep in our hearts, she still holds court. It’s been 5 years since Ani has toured Australia and to be honest, I thought that she’d never come back. Imagine my surprise then, when I happened across an ad for her upcoming Australian tour – 6 weeks after Squeaks due date!!! It’s like we’re being tested – as intent on having adult lives and adult relationships as we both are, 6 weeks is a bit early to be leaving our newborn. We’re buying tickets anyway and will plan to leave the babe with my sister who lives 5 minutes from the venue – that way, if there’s any disasters, we’re close by. We’re also prepared for the possibility that we won’t make it at all. Oh the sacrifices!
