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.

Sunday Activities

After surfing the net for a few hours, and stopping in at my favorite message board, I took a tour of East County Redneck Country to take care of business.

First the fluff and fold. Then Hollywood Video where, among other things, I picked up something called
Breakfast on Pluto. Synopsis: As foster kid Patrick "Kitten" Braden grows up, he leaves behind his small-town life in Ireland for London, where he's reborn as a transvestite cabaret singer in the 1960s and 70s.

Next stop, the pharmacy to pick up 2 doggie medications. 30 dollars and change.

Then off to Barnes & Noble. Here is my reading list:

Rage by Jonathon Kellerman

Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown

Life Sentences by Alice Blanchard

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

Last stop was Starbucks for a Tazo green tea frappuccino. What follows is an approximation of my conversation with the server:

SBS: (Starbucks server): Have you tried the blackberry green tea frapp?
Me: Yes, thank you.
SBS: You didn't like it?
Me: I liked it fine.
SBS: But you don't want it now?
Me: No. I just want the plain green tea frappuccino.
SBS: You're sure?
The Balloon Over My Head: Jesus girly. Am I sure? Do I look like I'm mentally deficient? Shut the fuck up, take my money, and order my drink.
The Words Out of My Mouth: I'm sure thank you. (big fake smile).

On a parting note, if you haven't checked out Twisty over at I Blame the Patriarchy, do so. Especially fun is Blaming the Twisty Way (FAQ's).

Can't wait to hear what you think of the DaVinci Code! It was awesome I thought and really got me thinking.

The Jodi Picoult is good, although My Sister's Keeper is my favorite. Rage is good as well, but then again I like all his books. And the Divinci Code was fantastic but I enjoyed Angels and Demons more I think. I am a book junkie and buy them pretty much the day they come out. Funny Starbucks story, I hate when they try to get me to get something I am not there for. Glad you had a quiet Sunday.

After you read da Vinci, give Labyrinth a spin, the two go great together, though with a slightly different spin. But then I'm biased, it's now my favouritest book ever.

Nelle, Who wrote Labyrinth? It sounds like I would enjoy it too.

Like you Just Me, I read Angels and Demons quite some time ago and really enjoyed it. I loved My Sister's Keeper. Picoult is stunning in the way she maps emotional landscapes. I will let you know about the other 2.

I will check out Labyrinth, Nelle. I wasn't as blown away by The Red Tent as much as you seemed to be but I was glad that I read it. And FYI, blondes aren't really my big thing ;^)

Caly, I'll let you know. And Sangrocito, there are 2 things I would like to do when I retire. Work in a bookstore and work in a Starbucks. When I was very young, I wrote a poem about being afraid that I would never be able to read every book in the world. ;^)
