I’m trying to figure out what charity to contribute to that isn’t anti-gay and that includes the Red Cross since after 9/11 they refused to give to spouses/partners of gay people who were killed.

It’s frightening that the Gulf Coast Basin is basically a Third World country at the moment. And the in case of the next big earthquake we could look like that too.

People are too modern and not prepared to live primitively. They trust that someone else will take care of them and that just isn’t and can’t happen.

I think I’m going to check our supplies.


Katharine Hepburn
You scored 26% grit, 33% wit, 52% flair, and 7% class!
You are the fabulously quirky and independent woman of character. You go your own way, follow your own drummer, take your own lead. You stand head and shoulders next to your partner, but you are perfectly willing and able to stand alone. Others might be more classically beautiful or conventionally woman-like, but you possess a more fundamental common sense and off-kilter charm, making interesting men fall at your feet. You can pick them up or leave them there as you see fit. You share the screen with the likes of Spencer Tracy and Cary Grant, thinking men who like strong women.

John Wayne
You scored 33% Tough, 9% Roguish, 28% Friendly, and 28% Charming!
You, my friend, are a man’s man, the original true grit, one tough talking, swaggering son of a bitch. You’re not a bad guy, on the contrary, you’re the ultimate good guy, but you’re one tough character, rough and tumble, ready for anything. You call the shots and go your own way, and if some screwy dame is willing to accept your terms, that’s just fine by you. Otherwise, you’ll just hit the open trail and stay true to yourself. You stand up for what you believe and can handle any situation, usually by rushing into the thick of the action. You’re not polished and you’re not overly warm, but you’re a straight shooter and a real stand up guy. Co-stars include Lauren Bacall and Maureen O’Hara, tough broads who can take care of themselves.

New Ipod strangeness and stream of consciousness musical thoughts

I Pod shuffle is just plain strange or maybe it’s what I loaded. It’s mostly Celtic, showtunes/soundtracks, pagan stuff and Disney. So what’s it playing? The weird shit and one song wonders.

We were raised on Broadway shows, operettas and old movies on 78’s. The first Broadway musical mom and dad ever took Cam and I to was “Brigadoon”. I remember being absolutely entranced. This was after we had passed several Hollywood Bowl tests and “Peter and the Wolf” by the LA Phil.

My life is so defined by music sometimes I can’t believe it. From lullabyes from mom and Grandma occasionally my dad. To being a choir kid. Can’t everyone sing along with the Messiah at 6? Or the Seven Last Words? Singing kids to sleep across a canyon at camp and waiting for the echo of those lullabyes. The songs we sing and write at Circle. To the hymns at Cam’s funeral. For years I thought “Coming Home” was a funeral song since the first time I ever heard it was about 7 at my Uncle Bill’s funeral.

I still can’t stand anything of Air Supply or Emerson, Lake and Palmer since that was all that was playing when I broke up with my first lover.

The Cris Williamson, Margie Adams, Holly Near and Meg Christian concerts every lesbian had to go to when we came out in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Music…

magic 8 ball Ipod

I couldn’t resist playing with my new toy and knowing full well witches should not use Ouija Boards and Magic 8 Balls

Put your iTunes on random, then ask it each question out loud before going to the next song. Record what song it jumps to as the answer.

Well, Duh, I’m a Priestess.

Van Dieman’s Land – Instrumental, no Artist listed

Okay, a song about being transported from the British Isles to South Africa. Great!

Question: How can I maximize my pleasure during sex?

A Most Peculiar Man – Simon and Garfunkel

I guess most lesbians would make most peculiar men, Heeheehee

Question: Will I ever have children?

Con El Viento – Libana

Which means “With the Wind” Since the Inn is closed, shut, abandoned and blowing tumbleweeds. that’s about right.. I’ve been spayed. Doing the happy dance!

Glad Woman – Robert Gass

Tango To Evora – Loreena McKennit

Everybody Dance!

Question: What’s my favorite fetish?

Lullaby for Amanda – Ruth Barrett and Cyntia Smith

Since both Ruth and Cyntia are happily paired with their spouses of choice and Amanda is old enough to be married now also,.frightening as that is since I remember when she was very small. I’ll take it as sleep.

Driving Rant- You have been warned!

Okay, I’m cranky especially after driving here this am. I swear people did every one of my driving pet peeves. In Southern California to drive along smoking out the window of your car is either supremely selfish or supremely stupid or both. I bet if one of them were arrested for starting a fire they would be so upset. Plus when the wind and traffic is right they stink up my car. Keep it inside and stink up your own car. I have to say most of my friends who smoke are the most courteous of people it’s those few morons with no brains and no manners.

Don’t make you own lane and pass everyone in the GD parking lane. I’m waiting for someone to slam into a parked car. Usually its a male teenage driver in a black car with tinted windows. I’m not aware of any revisions to the law that excludes cars of this description.

Don’t get in front of me and go slow. AIIIIEIEIIIIIIIEEEEEEE!

And to the gentleman who had a magazine in his lap (I saw him turn the page), Starbucks in his left hand and a hamburger in the right hand and couldn’t seem to stay in his lane, WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING???

There was a lady who was putting on mascara and talking on her cell phone who also couldn’t stay within the lines. WHAT DO YOU PEOPLE DO BEFORE YOU LEAVE HOME?


I broke down and bought an ipod because I’m tired of toting my cd’s back and forth to work. I’ve spent all evening uploading my favourite Celtic and folk stuff. I put it on shuffle and the first song is the Lakes of Pontchartrain . Okay, we’re weirded out now.

Nothing like a good Twight Zone moment
