Bee Rodeo!

Bee Rodeo!

There was a lot of commotion over at the Speaker Bee hive today, so I went out to check on the rumpus. The bees were busy doing some spring cleaning, pulling the string that we’d used to tie the comb into the frames out the front door, and dumping it on the ground in front […]

Add This To The List Of Things That Suck: Regicide

Add This To The List Of Things That Suck: Regicide

I’d been planning the assassination for three weeks. I didn’t really want her dead, but someone had to kill her. Even though my boyfriend claims that he’ll do anything for me, “anything” doesn’t include getting blood on his hands. So the snuff work fell to me. My boyfriend, that softie, had already talked me out […]

Crotch Banging. And Not In A Good Way.

Crotch Banging. And Not In A Good Way.

Jessi and Karen are tired of sharing their fruit salad with 10,000 buzzy pals every morning. Since they are nice, young ladies, they advertised in the neighborhood newsletter that they had a bee colony that needed to be relocated from the retaining wall supporting their terrace rather than calling an exterminator. I went over to […]

All My Hundred Acre Woods Fantasies Fulfilled!

All My Hundred Acre Woods Fantasies Fulfilled!

I have many desires that I cannot explain. Like, my love of shoes for example. Or, my goal of joining Volvo’s Million Mile Club. Or, the fact that I’ve been pining for a Bee Gum since I read about them on one of the numerous bee sites I’ve been frequenting lately (and too often). I […]
