The Jew, the Fag n' the Hag. That's us. My husband, my youngest son and myself. I'm being 'semi-facetious' but these words do describe a demographic that we individually fit. We can't completely escape this reductionism because it is a part of what makes up our identities. My husband is Jewish, my son is trans … Continue reading The Jew, the Fag ‘n the Hag
Facebook, Instagram, whatnot. It's fun, I suppose. You can keep in touch with friends and family! (or not, and then that's just hurtful) You can keep up with the news! (I am being sarcastic now) And, of course, you can watch endless short videos of meaningless drivel with the occasional cool or funny thing! My … Continue reading Fasting from Muffins and Memes?
It is the spring of 2020 and the plague is upon us. I have every convenience and comfort. I ramble through the days like a protected queen in her castle. I wander my spacious colourful home and nap, write, clean and watch TV. We eat well and we walk through the forest or stand by … Continue reading Baie Verte Idyll
March 2017 - Reading at Thunder and Lightning Pub in Sackville , NB Home Wife I got strung out Like laundry whipped and tangled By a strong wind I got wrung out twisted and worn Like clothes in an old washer I was wiped out By a stinking kitchen cloth Smelling like mold I wanted … Continue reading First Ever Reading at the Tantramar Literary Social
I found some old blogs sitting forgotten in drafts. I should leave them there, you say. But I say nay, I will toss them out in the flotsam. The short ones made me laugh. Abrupt beginnings, promising so much, and delivering nothing! Forgotten and discarded. Much has happened since I wrote these, but I thought … Continue reading Return of the Lost Blogger
Hello to my legion of fans, (Hello Lester!) I have not published in many months. I have lost the urge to toss my personal life out into the public domain and I am not perfectly sure why I was so drawn to it in the first place. It's brave and sort of crazy and maybe … Continue reading Now that I have stopped Bloggin’
I feel like this will be the longest winter in history. I have been spinning in time since my son went to college. The Old Bitch Above saw it was wise to keep me busy so she gave me two night jobs through the summer to distract me from my thoughts. But now it is fall … Continue reading January
I have spent the last six months going into debt. It has been a lot of work. I am pretty tired now. During this process I worked two jobs and tried to start a business. Now I have one part time job, no business plan and some really good debt. We bought the house next … Continue reading cicatrix – the scar when a wound heals
I was thinking about The Vogue – still going strong in 2014! The Neptune Drive In is still running and popular as well as our beloved Sackville Film Society. My daughter and I even made it out to an free evening of short films organized by AFCOOP – two of the beautiful films shown that night were actually projected – a 16 mm and a 35mm. See you at he movies!
It was a Sunday afternoon and I could edit my essay on XML in the Library System or take my kids to a matinee at our local film theater, the Vogue Cinema.
I got my priorities settled fairly quickly and grabbed the kids. A half hour on country roads and we are in quiet little Sackville, a town that is very lucky to have its own independently owned film theater.
This month the kids and I have been to a bunch of children’s films, Puss in Boots (very funny) and Johnny English (OK) and yesterday, Happy Feet Two ( cute but the vision of environmental changes in the north can’t help but be a bit depressing).
We are looking forward to the new Tin Tin movie, the Muppet movie and whatever ‘girl flick’ I get to go to with my 19 year old daughter. We don’t go to any other…
