Totally random dispatches from a goofy lesbian Presbyterian who loves books, history, old-time radio and walking.
The Village Carpenter Mrs. Fruit's woodworking blog, filled with pretty pictures and words I've never heard of. I really don't know what she's talking about. There are also a few cute pics of our companion animals, because we're gay and it's a requirement.
Writing a quick note before I blow. Love and kisses and Happy B-Day to Kari. I took the money to mom from the plant because I am gone and J. not here and a guy on a bike was trying to choke a woman. I backed my car up and jumped his ass and told him I was calling the police. He said you need to leave and mind your own business. I said I have just made you by business you f whimp coward!!! I did call 911 and described him. The cops said what was he wearing and I said hell I don't know he was choking someone. He was riding a bike so that should be pretty easy for you. Unbelievable !!
She's headed up to her house in the boondocks of WV, for some R & R. I emailed her today and told her to watch out for "Deliverance assholes." In her response back to me she complained about someone who's giving her a hard time and reassured me as to her safety. Sort of. Here's the last part of her email:
I detest that lazy ho.Love you, I am armed and will be buying a better gun. Mine is a 25 because I let your dad have the 38.
Apparently, my gay sword stances aren't enough excitement for a certain blogger (IdentityMixed). So here's a captivating version of what we did yesterday: Kari got a wild hair up her butt to go somewhere. Anywhere. So we called her mom, who was over here practically before K. hung up the phone, and piled into the car. I took the backseat, as I'm wont to do on road trips. K's mom calls it my "apartment." I have food, books, my knitting, my iPod, and my pillows, in case the urge to nap overtakes me.
It did. I slept on the way up. The buggy museum was pretty nice, actually. I love looking at and smelling all that old shit. Kari's mom was cracking me up. Totally uninterested in the buggies, she was asking the tour guide questions about the tour guide.
Afterward, I paid $45 for a book about a local World War 1 nurse who died at the front. Her niece, who compiled all the information and wrote the book, concluded that she died from acute chloroform/anesthesia poisoning. It's rare to happen upon stuff about 1) World War 1 and 2) women who served during that particular War. Lots of British women did, but fewer Americans.
I've come to enjoy these impromptu trips. There's always the possibility for some life-changing event (hopefully, in a good, not traumatic, way). The younger incarnation of myself was a pretty hardcore J, on the Myers-Briggs'. Now, I'm okay with spontaneity. As long as I have my pillows.

Russell Brand Alas, old Russ resigned from the BBC so his podcasts are no longer available, but here's a link to his youtube website. He's smart, articulate and damn sexy. And he knows that "drugs is bad."
Savage Love Podcast Profane, disgusting, entertaining and very educational podcast based on Dan Savage's sex column. I've learned about some things I rather wish I hadn't, but can't stop listening. Mrs. Fruit refuses to partake----too many F-bombs.
Stephen Fry's Podgrams Writer, actor, comedian, filmmaker, Mac enthusiast and really interesting podcaster. The worst thing about this podcast is that he doesn't do it enough.
The Archers My current, hopeless addiction. A daily podcast of the world's longest running daily soap.
