I took the huge shipping crate containing Astrid, my new bike (Yay! My bike) to the Bike Oven, my local bike co-operative, today for expert advice on reassembling it. I discovered two things: 1. A lot of guys who are into biking and neighborhood co-ops are really cute. I must file this information away to […]

My Fig Tree is a Fica

Fica means fig in Italian. It’s also an Italian slang term for women who look and act like Paris Hilton. Fig leaves have been used for centuries by prudish church types to cover the goodie-bits of famous statues. Connect the linguistic dots… Today I picked five pounds of figs off the tree in my backyard. […]

A woman named Ellen from The Compact emailed me off-list today. She wanted my expert advice on how to compost. Which, funnily enough, is something that comes up pretty often with me.

Mr. Foxypants just announced that he will be taking the entire month of October off from work… wait for it…. to go through the garage and all his earthy possessions and downsize! And I didn’t even have to be a nagging shrew to get him to this decision. Since we moved into Dinky Manor in […]

Be Prepared To Be Nice

August 11, 2008 I’m bummed out to discover that my recycle-mania wasn’t as fully successful as I’d given myself credit for. There were half empty bottles left all over the set yesterday which I didn’t know about. The location manager was kind of furious with the level of trash left on the set. There was […]
