Not Breaking News!

0024 Pink Not Gay 01Earlier this summer former-Cosby kid Raven Symone revealed that she is gay, which I mention only because a couple of days later Pink went public with the news that she is not gay. I have mixed feelings about the whole celebrity-sexuality announcement thing – on the one hand I think it’s great Continue reading →

War of Words

0021 War of wordsI handed my mom a printed copy of my blog post Killing Time. “Here,” I say. “Read this.”

“What is it?”

“Something I wrote for my blog.”

“Your what?”

“My blog. Remember? We agreed I’d print the parts you’re allowed to read so you wouldn’t have to see the stuff you Continue reading →

Inside My Bubble

I started out wanting to write a post about my search for funny lesbian blogs on WordPress – I’m nothing if not a humor 0018 funny 03whore. I didn’t intend to say such blogs don’t exist, ButchOnTap and Miss N Corner are proof that they do. I was just going to ask the funny lesbians to step forward and identify themselves so I could join their followers (and I’d still appreciate knowing who and Continue reading →

But apparently I fall short in the whole FALAGABATATA (Federal Agency of Lesbian and Gay and Bisexual and Transgender and Transsexual Americans) political/community involvement/cultural awareness area.

And that’s distracting. Really, really distracting. Continue reading →

Story Time With The Baroness

Sometimes when I’m sitting under a big, shady tree on my sprawling country estate, reading one of the classics – perhaps Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris or Mary Roach’s Stiff – and sipping a cool, refreshing beverage, a group of children from the local village will come running across the expansive lawn shouting, “Baroness! Baroness!”

Arriving breathlessly before me they beg, “Baroness, tell us how it was in the olden days, back before you were a lesbian.”
