I definitely don’t want to get into the details of what happened, but to make a long story short… I was driving, a car hit me… and Jessie Lee was a passenger in the back seat. I am fine, I have no injuries- which I am thankful for, but I also feel like physical injuries would hurt less than how I feel now worrying about Jessie’s recovery.
I think you all know how much I adore Jessie – and what an important part of BurningAngel she is. She is currently in the hospital, she has been there since last Friday and it looks like she is recovering quite well. I have always picked on Jessie for being “Straight Edge” – I am definitely taking all that back now! The fact that there were no drugs and no alcohol in her system- and the fact that she is a very active and healthy girl, has really sped up the recovery process. I have been going to visit her… she went from being in the ICU a few days ago to being in a regular room in the hospital and is now sitting up, eating, and being her regular feisty self. She does have a fractured neck (which was already operated on and fused back together), but amazingly enough… doesn’t not even have one fractured nail.
I am currently in New York. I was supposed to return to Los Angeles this past Monday but I changed my flight so I could stay here and try to help Jessie and her family out as much as I can. I did wind up going to Exxxotica for a short while over the weekend- but I didn’t take any photos of myself or the girls… I didn’t have it in me. So no Exxxotica gallery will be posted! Sorry. I also apologize in advance for my blog being kinda boring for a little while. With all this going on I can’t be the goofy Angel you are used to.
I have started a website posting updates on her recovery, as well as information on any benefit events going on in Jessie’s honor, and a link to donate money to her to help her get through this. Even if you just have $5 to donate, every little bit helps! The site is www.helpomgitsjessielee.com .
She also asked that you all follow her on Twitter so her Twitter is @OMGJessieLee.
Well as you may or may not know (if you are following me on Twitter) – things are not going so great in life right now.
I am not mentally ready to blog about the car accident at the moment. As soon as I figure out how to verbalize how I am feeling, I will post an update about it.
On Thursday night before the convention, I was asked to speak at The Red Umbrella Series. It’s a reading series hosted by the writer/sex worker Audacia Ray. She invites different people from the sex industry (anyone from porn stars, to dominatrix’s, escorts, sex advice columnists etc) to come and read about a particular assigned topic once a month. The topic on Thursday was “Bad Behavior.” I didn’t want to write about sex because, well, I don’t think sex is bad behavior! It is good behavior! In fact it is awesome behavior.
So instead I wrote about that terrible day in Hollywood where I got too many parking tickets, and elaborated on it a bit.
Here is a very crappy resolution video of my story. I did have a lot of fun doing this. It has always been an aspiration of mine to do stand up one day- this kinda felt like a good warm up for that. Right?
