i wanna be a lesbian...

...on a harley. well, not really. just sort of. this morning in front of Roasting Plant, these two masculine black women, talking in front of their motorcycles, made lesbianism seem so cool. Or maybe they were just cool, in general. They rambled about brain and perception and some other inaudible stuff, but all I could do was stare and think "Are they a couple? If so, is the big one the "dude?" Is that ignorant of me? If I were a lesbian, I'd want to be Ellen Degeneres...or married to her...

So, I introduced Roasting Plant to Rachel this weekend, and now she's smitten as well. When I went in today for my cup, the cashier guy said "You can't stay away, huh?" I agreed, and told him and the cashier girl that I'm a convert, after suffering the dreadful service at Orchard 88. Then the cashier girl says, "Yeah, did you read that blog where someone said the employees at Orchard 88 don't seem to really want to be there?" (or something like that) I nodded, though I hadn't read it, and said that I agreed and if I read it, I'll post a comment on it. She said, "Sounds like you wrote that blog." I said "Nope, I didn't." But it turns out I actually did..write the blog in question. funny.

p.s. today is the last day of summer...and sometime soon, i'll have to retire my lovely st. marks straw hat until next year. Makes me a bit sad. farewell, my lovely, rain-or-shine, st. marks straw hat.

Honesty in your lesbian sexuality ? Something I am trying to convey as well at http://alesbiankiss2desire.blogspot.com would love to know more about you. Perhaps crosslinking blogs ?

I want that hat Chubbs... of course I could never look as nice in it as you do. Lovely.

Chubbs said...

thanks brenda :-) ...i'll definitely check out your blog.

asabi, i'm not really a lesbian. sorry.

jazz, i'm telling you now--get the hat, it will shape to your face and head. Straw seems to do that so naturally.

great hat. i have comments about you wanting to be lesbian, but its typical man shit, so i'll spare you

You wrote a blog which someone in a coffee shop read. . . how amazing. . . what a small world it is.

Peas has a hat like your's. She didn't wear it much this summer. . . I should have harassed her more about wearing it.

Chubbs said...

rashad--I am SOOO about to post a disclaimer at the end of this blog...just for all the "typical man shit." :-P

etoilee--i still can't believe the coffee girl read the blog I wrote about her coffee shop. I went back later, and she thanked me for posting it. And, if it's still warm down there, you can force Peas to wear her straw hat for at least another couple of weeks.

You are so pretty.

What was the name of that book you got from Strand when we went there? I can't remember what it was called, but I think you should take it to that coffee shop and read it!

Chubbs said...

ha angda! it's Old Dyke Tales. great book!

Chubbs said...

p.s. i'm never posting anything else using the word "lesbian" again. lol. maybe.

JazzBrew said...

Chubbs, you must admit... with a title like "I wanna be a lesbian" it definitely got our attention!! LOL.
