I was recently put in time out on Twitter for describing myself as a fag hag. For the young ones here, this was long considered a term of endearment. I just watched the final season of Vida on Starz and it was fun to watch the old school dykes being offended by this new drag queen band at the bar throwing around the word queer. That was offensive to her. Terminology changes a lot in every community. Which brings me to the word “fruit fly” which was apparently supposed to change fag hag into fruit fly. As someone who is currently infested with fruit flies and their utter annoyance. This offends me. So does one of you here with the embryonic barely off his back telling me calling a closeted senator Lady G means that I think all gay want to be women, or at least propagating that thought. Bitch please, I’ve been progay before you were born.
But in this post I am referring to actual fruit flies! Just when I thought they were gone they are back. In Georgia we live either above or below the gnat line. I’ve spent a lot of time in both. You get used to living below the gnat line, especially when you live in Savannah. But the gnats do take a lot of getting used to, and dammit I am above the gnat line in this hovel and the fruit flies, the real kind are obnoxious as fuck. I’ve tries boiling vinegar in the drains, beer traps, apple cider vinegar traps, I ACTUALLY CLEANED THE KITCHEN! (kind of). It’s annoying as fuck. So don’t fucking call me a fruit fly.
This brings me to what we should be watching. Also I am hearing some weird, possible target practice outside my house. An indecipherable yelling. I live in a neighborhood where the education level is not optimal. Let’s leave it at that. Maybe someone is getting a new roof. Let’s hope it is that. So a few of us watched Vida on Starz and I just watched the final season… I think it was three? And there won’t be anymore and that makes me said.
I also just watched the first episode of Big Sky on ABC. It starts off interesting enough… but I strongly recommend you watch the entire first episode. I’m also watching All Rise on CBS and Bull On CBS. There are a lot of good network shows like obviously, This is Us on NBC.
I find that we are talking more and more about network shows in the comments of Bravo shows. And I like that. I have been encouraging you guys to get off the Bravo teat for YEARS. I’d love to talk more about some really good shows. I’m old school though and don’t do Netflix or Hulu or any of the streaming sites. I’m not about to buy a smart TV or a fire stick or whatever. I am counting down the days/years when I can get the fuck out of here and bore you all about where I am living. It really doesn’t make a difference who is president. I know I will never have healthcare in this country, so I’m out as soon as my dog leaves me.
But until then, I’ll keep on feeling strange feelings and watching good shows which you guys. Meanwhile, the yelling outside my house sounds kind of like something you would hear in Karate class. I have no idea what is going on. It’s like Bruce Lee is putting on a new roof nearby. But it is a new day and Banjo and I are having brunch.
