Pingy-Dingy Wednesday – The Mail, and a Lesbo Sing Along!

Oh, sweethearts, how I ADORE getting mail! I don’t mean on my computer, I mean in the actual mailbox, actual letters. Just last week I got a letter from my femme sister, Liz Nania (go check out her gorgeous art as soon as you can!), so cheerful, so uplifting! She sent me a frazdabulous patch that says FEMME LESBIAN!!! Thank you, Sis!!!

But…do I need to worry about touching the envelope? This article helps me understand the risks.

Joseph G. Allen, you get one pingy-dingy! Thank you for your calm and generous explanation for those of us whose brains are wired to go from zero to one hundred on the panic-o-meter!

Many a year ago, when I was a member of the wonderful Family Folk Chorale, we sang the song “Swimming to the Other Side” by Emma’s Revolution. Now, they are offering all kinds of community building singing and songwriting workshops via yon computer, so check it out, and keep singing!

Pat and Sandy, you get one pingy-dingy! Thank you for your decades of rising up and fighting back and providing love and solace to so many folks! We love you!

I’m a typewriter whompin’, card catalogue lovin’ white girl from back in the day, and I yearn for a time before the covers of trade paperbacks were all squidgy, so you can imagine that I don’t actually understand what a pingback is. I do know that it can in some way be part of spreading the love, and since that’s what I’m all about at The Total Femme… every Wednesday, I pay homage to the laughter, love, and inspiration to be had elsewhere online.

At the Total Femme, my intention is to post three times a week: Meditations for Queer Femmes on Monday, Pingy-Dingy Wednesday on Wednesday and Femme Friday on Friday. Rather than play catch-up in a stressful fashion on those weeks when life prevents posting, I have decided to just move gaily forward: if I miss a Monday, the next post will be on Wednesday, and so on. Thank you, little bottle of antibiotics for inspiring me in this! (“…if it’s almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Don’t take a double dose to make up for a missed one.”) As I undergo treatment for breast cancer, however, I’m just going to post whenever I can manage.
