21st Century Lesbian Trailer Trash

These are the mad musings of a middle aged woman, dyke, nurse, poet. I have a dog, a cat, a mobile home, and delusions of grandeur.

Happy Thursday

I'm long on deep thoughts but short on time. Being an older woman, many of my deep thoughts slip through the cracks long before I have time to sit down and write about them. Here are some things I'm thinking about this morning, sans editorial comments:

*Aging in America

*What's in a Name?

*The Prez is circling the drain. Are we going to let him go down quietly? Or will we wrest our government out of his tight, greedy fingers?

*Sex and the Single Granny

*Coffee. Where does Mocha Mom find it?

*Good Books

*Where Are We at post Katrina?

*What's Happening in Iraq?

*The Ongoing Crisis in Long Term Care

Maybe I'll write about them. Maybe I won't. Unless cyberspace gremlins creep in to steal them, at least my thoughts are where I can find them.

Can I answer any of these???

Aging? What's that? What was the question? What am I talking about?

The president... I'm almost beginning to feel sorry for him.


Sex and the single granny... I'm not a granny, not a granny, I damn well had better not be a granny anytime soon. Sex? A far distant concept!

Coffee, not something I drink, but then who cares! Is Mocha wondering where Pam gets her coffee?

Katrina... same place we were pre Katrina, with a whole lot of tragedy being the difference. We are less than 3 months from hurricane season.

Iraq... next!

Long term care... yanno, you should blog on this one.Hell, blog on all of em!

Oh, books... B & N, here I come!

Kelly, aka Mocha, pointed your site out to me. I'm the crazy woman who met up with that internet nutcase in Illinois last summer. I've been dropping in here periodically since then and commend your way with words and your apparent political leanings. : )

May I deign to propose a few of suggestions/ possible explanations/
editorial comments to your musings?

Killing three birds, in order, with one stone...

Sex and the Single Granny...as I am about to become a grandmother for the first time in about a month-and-a-half, may I inquire as to whether this will suddenly become *possible* again once I'm a Granny? Oh, I sure hope so!

Regarding Mocha and her coffee...as any true addict will, she gets it wherever she can. ; ) On the same topic, I posted an entry on my fledgling blogspot blog (http://www.madmomandmutt.blogspot.com/) this morning regarding coffee. Supposedly, Starbuck's declined to send some coffee to the troops in Iraq because of their disapproval of the war. I have not yet checked the veracity of the story, but I think I'm holding off on Starbuck's purchases until I know it to be untrue.

Good books...I'm going to have some downtime for a bit, helping to care for my Dad, who's under hospice care now. On a trip this afternoon to Border's, looking for a little lighter reading, I purchased:

"the curious incident of the dog in the night-time" by Mark Haddon, because of its intriguing title and the interesting diagrams as well as the story...seems to be about an autistic teenager who investigates the suspicious death of a neighborhood dog.

"The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho. I've never read any of his work. This one is about a young Andalusian who travels to Egypt to search for treasure and finds much more along the way. Sounds quirky, too, which is right up my alley.

"The Ice Storm" by Rick Moody. Granted, this is not exactly light reading. I adore the Ang Lee movie which is based on this novel and I love to read novels or stories on which my favorite movies are based, preferably *after* seeing the film. I was also intrigued because under the author's credits is an essay entitled "Joyful Noise: The New Testament Revisited" which he co-edited with Darcey Steinke. I have an intense interest in how people reconcile their spirituality (particularly Christianity) and personal morality with their politics (especially if they're left-leaning, like moi) and modern life.

Finally, I got "One for the Money" by Janet Evanovich, as my truly lightweight material. I thought it was about time I became acquainted with Stephanie Plum.

Thanks for listening to my verbose "two cents" and it's a pleasure to read you!

I see Chatty Cathy was here. Geez. And I see she called me an addict. Wait till I see her again.

There's a site to get the peaberry coffee atwww.bluemountaincoffee.com. Once you try it, you'll be addicted, too. Also, I try mom-and-pop shops for new blends and Peet's is awesome. I think that's www.peetscoffee.com

Let me know what you try! And don't be afraid of Cheryl. She's harmless.

Ya know Ms. Nelle, I was supposed to be writing a book on the crisis in long term care. I have the Inspiration. It's the Perspiration I cannot tolerate.

*Steal it? I'm not even sure I thought of it Sandra ;^)

*Cheryl. I assure you that grandmotherhood will render you, once again, light enough in spirit to make sex a possibility.

If the Starbucks story is true I think I may just trot on down to one of my 13 local Starbucks stores to throw a one woman spanky cum boycott.

*Mocha! I love Peet's coffee. Our social worker (sometimes known as Uncle Dave) turned me on to that one.

Thanks for the link. I'll check it out this weekend.
