Date Of Birth

B.F. East of Eden (a.k.a The East Bay, California)

Date Joined The Order
I started volunteering for the Sisters in June 2001. I worked for them at Pink Saturday, marched with them in the Pride Parade and helped with bingo. After some internal debate and soul-searching, I announced my intention to join in November of 2001, became a member of the Order in January of 2002 and was Fully Professed on 12 December 2002.

When Did You Discover Your Calling?
I don't think that I can point to one specific moment of time. I started on my path with the Sisters by simply stating, "I want to give back to the community." However, as I progressed towards Novice, I found that there was more and more that was driving me. As a Fully Professed Sister, I am discovering even more. I believe that I rediscover my Calling each time I go out in Habit; each time I bring someone Joy; each time I am challenged to be the best you've ever seen.

Why Did You Become A Sister?
For me, being a Sister is all about Love. If I am in Habit and I make one person smile, then I have done my job. Raising money and helping people materially is a very important part of what we do. But the real work happens in one-on-one interactions. Being a nun isn't just about giving grants or following the rules or having the most glamourous nails: it's all about spreading the Love.

Sponsor In The Order
My Mother in the Order is Sister Lily White Superior Posterior, my Novice Mistress is Sister Gina Tonic, my Godmother is Sister Constance Craving and my Wicked Stepmother is Sister Betty Does, LNM.

Goals & Aspirations
I want to serve the Order in as many positions as I possibly can: I figure I'll start at the top and work my way down. I look back at the Sisters who have gone before me and am amazed, awed and inspired. I want to be able to live up to the standard they have set. I want to be able to do Good Works equal to theirs. And I want to amaze, awe and inspire future generations of nuns.

The Sisters have had an amazing 25 years of service, education and mayhem. I am hopeful that our next 25 years will be even better. I want to see the Sisters increase their connection with the community that we serve. There are a lot of great people doing good work out there. By working together, we make each other stronger. I want to see the Sisters resume their role as political activists and sacred clowns. We all need to be activists to create the world we want to live in. Most of all, I want to see the Sisters' message of love and guilt-free indulgence spread all over the world. By loving each other, we make the world a brighter, more magical place.

Religious Beliefs
"The object of the search for religious truth, which is a universal and never-ending search, may be found through the Earth-Mother; which is Nature; but this is one way, yea, one way among many.

And great is the importance, which is of a spiritual importance, of Nature, which is the Earth-Mother; for it is one of the objects of Creation, and with it people do live, yea, even as they do struggle through life they are come face to face with it." - RDNA Tenets

Sister Edith's Guidelines For Life
You should refrain from drinking on an empty stomach: make sure your first cocktail of the evening has an olive, a cherry or some'at in. Bloody Marys work a treat.

It is not wise to say no to free drinks, cheap jewelry, discount cosmetics or pretty boys. Or even pretty girls, for that matter.

Cheap lipstick should be avoided at all costs.

The judicious use of glitter can distract the eye from many imperfections.

If you're walking through the park and you're worried about stepping in shit, then all you'll see are piles of crap. Life is too short, baby! Make sure you look at the flowers and the trees. And if you do step in a pile of poo, you can always wash it off.

Make the rules up as you go along; it makes the game more fun to play.

Other People's Words That I Find Instructive
"Less effort, more results!" - Sister Rox!

"Being a Powerpuff Girl isn't about getting your way or having the best stuff or being popular or powerful. It's about using your own unique abilities to help people and the world we all live in." - Blossom

"It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." - Robert F. Kennedy

"My goal is to always come from a place of love...but sometimes you just have to break it down for a motherfucker." RuPaul

"Lord help the mister who comes between me and my Sister. And Lord help the Sister who comes between me and my man." - Irving Berlin

"In itself, homosexuality is as limiting as heterosexuality: the ideal should be to be capable of loving a woman or a man; either, a human being, without feeling fear, restraint, or obligation." - Simone de Beauvoir

"You should use your pain and sorrow to fill you up with power." - Björk

"A kiss may be grand, but it won't pay the rental on your humble flat or help you at the Automat." - Marilyn Monroe

"An it harm none, do what thou will." - The Wiccan Rede

"Love is the law; love under will." - Alastair Crowley
