The Mrs.

  • 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.

    The Village Carpenter

    I'll patch the holes in your jeans. Bring 'em out to my shop. Got a nail gun out there. You'll want to take them off first, though.


    Haha! Kari beat me to that suggestion! It's like that Dutch (and probably every other language) expression--cheap is expensive. Mom jeans--phenomenal! Please tell me that they're not that horrific kind with elastic on the waistband.

    The Village Carpenter

    Mom jeans=pleats. haha


    If you can make them wearable, VC, you're welcome to use the nail gun. Naomi, elastic on the waistband sounds pretty sweet. No pleats, however.


    i keep thinking i'll hold off on another pair too--until i'm not size 16 anymore. and i wish they'd take the spandex out of the levis. though i do love quilting, i rarely sew on a button and have no idea how to really patch.

    i'm glad you got my gift, and like it. maybe it could be positioned so that the holes are hidden behind it.


    Angela, I LOVE the scarf and had a good laugh thinking how I could wear it backwards to strategically cover the holes on my rear end. Or, I could wear it like a giant sash.


    You cook dinner every night??? ;-)

    The Village Carpenter

    She doesn't cook dinner anymore. I had to ask her to stop because the meals she was making tasted too good and I was putting on weight!


    What did you sit on that made you get holes in your jeans? Are you dragging your butt on the ground or something?
    Go to Target and buy jeans from the mens section - good ol' rough and tough Wranglers!

    Podcasts I listen to

    • Answer Me This Podcast
      Funny stuff from three smarty-pants young Brits.
    • Cast-on with Brenda Dayne

    • Craft Mentality
      Amber and Tasha talk about kntting, sewing, cooking, reading and Project Runway.
    • Craftlit

    • Fresh Air With Terry Gross
    • Girls on Girls
      Two really funny and cute lesbian comics. I listen while I walk the dogs, grinning and guffawing down the street.
    • Great Speeches in History
      These are great. If possible (e.g. JFK), they come with the original speaker. If not (e.g. Jesus), they have really good readers reading the speeches/lectures/sermons.
    • Jonathan Ross
      Not as sexy as old Russ, but funny and good interviewer. Except he asked Keeley Hawes about her poo; I didn't appreciate that.
    • Matt's Today in History
      Matt Dattilo reading about stuff that happened today in history. Obviously.
    • New Yorker
    • News From Lake Wobegon
      Now you don't have to be home on Saturday evenings to catch Garrison Keillor's monologue.
    • NYT Front Page
      Daily headlines from the front page of the New York Times. The link takes you to all the Times' podcasts.
    • Oxford Biographies
      Short biographical sketches of famous Brits.
    • Oypod
      A Jewish teen podcast. This kid plays great music, among other things, such as Hebrew slang and news from Israel.
    • Rachel Maddow's MSNBC show (audio)
    • Radio 3 Arts and Ideas
      Pretty self-explanatory. From the Beeb.
    • 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.
    • The Football Phone-in 606
      Folks call in after soccer games to rant, give props, etc.
    • The Lesbian Mafia
    • The Planet
      I love these womyn! Hysterically funny podcast, ostensibly about The L Word, but more often random observations about anything and everything. This is one of the best podcasts out there.

    • World Literature Podcasting
      Classics of world literature discussed and summarized.
