At the Farmer’s Market last weekend, someone came up to me at my pink cookie table and said,
“Trixie, I’m at a loss. You see, I’m really used to not taking control of my life, and just letting things happen – and then complaining about it later – but, now, with this whole Trump thing, I’m thinking that maybe I should actually DO something. Maybe. I still might procrastinate and do nothing, and lament my own fate and live my life in a perpetual state of perceived ‘victim-hood’, but, if I WAS to actually DO something, what do you think I should do?”
“Buy a bag of cookies. Five bucks.”
Really, stop whining and call your Representatives..
Do it TODAY! Today is the House vote on Trumpcare. You see, these representatives have an algorithm, and they know that if X number of people call or write, then, really Y number of people within their district think that way.
It’s important to call, and call often. Even, if you AGREE with them, call. Let them know that they are doing a good job. The algorithm works both ways.
Do that Friday am. Fine. Boom. Done.
Friday evening, 6-9pm go to the Shaker’s video Happy Hour, because what else are you doing?
And, it is THE place for Columbia County’s homosexuals of a certain age…
Then, on Saturday, come to the Hudson Farmer’s Market, Union and 6th, 10am-1pm, where I will have fresh-baked cookies, and lots of opinions, to give you. Cookies are $5/bag, the opinions I give out for free!
Saturday afternoon, if you have NOT gone yet, you really have to get thee to the Andre Serrano exhibit at the former Martin Van Buren High School in Kinderhook. It is by far, one of the queerest exhibits you’re going to see in Columbia County.
This Sunday, March 26th, OutHudson, the newly-formed LGBTQ organization, (the organization in charge of Hudson’s annual Pride Parade and Weekend) is having a Queer Family Brunch at Solaris, 360 Warren. 10am-Noon. Go to that. Bring a dish. I’m baking cookies, and this time, I am giving those away, as well as opinions.
(Next Monday, April 3rd, 6pm, if you’re interested in helping out with the Parade, mark your calendar, and look for my FB invite.)
Sunday evening, what is there to do in Hudson?
Not a lot, really…not in March, anyway. But, think about going to see FEUD on the big screen at the Shaker bar, that evening. Like at 10, I think.
It’s good that FEUD is now on TV, because, as with most people, I’m getting bored with “Walking Dead”.
“Feud”, the story of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, IS the new ZOMBIE show on TV to watch…
My FAVORITE character is Mammasita, or Joan’s maid, played by the hilarious, Jackie Hoffman! Jackie performed in Poughkeepsie last year, and if you have not seen her in “Xanadu”, “Hairspray” or at Joe’s Pub, you have to make the time!
(A getup like that, and Jackie did NOT get cast in Fiddler! True. She tells it herself.)
And that’s it, done. There’s really nothing else.
