Bitch on the Blog

Make my day

Am at a loss this minute. Conrad has given me permission to tease him. Unfortunately he forgot to throw me an angle.

So gone deep sea diving instead, finishing yesterday’s papers. Why not go back to Daphne’s time, the scandal that rocked the Consortium to its fundamentals and start another one: Sean Connery kissed a man. Don’t shoot the messenger.

My dear dear Daphne, this will kick another bucket at doorstep of the puritan pit across our neighbours’ ocean. Make it extra large [the bucket]. Full to the brim.

I can barely contain myself with laughter. According to my source (The Sunday Times) as of this minute I now know that which few do: Sean Connery kissed a man. In 1960. In a film called ‘Colombe’. Lost. Till now. This is so brilliant I don’t know what to do with myself. Sean Connery – the very epitome of manhood: How many men do YOU know who can smile like he does whilst raising just the ONE eyebrow at Miss Moneypenny? Before my swooning makes me faint I will keep the record STRAIGHT: It was not a GAY kiss. Just a full on smacker to find out what made his BROTHER (yes, really, the swine) such an irresistable lover to Connery’s character’s wife. Shakespearean, no less. Maybe Wagner. Blood, daggers, sweat, tears. Curtains.


PS And remember, or rather ask yourselves: Why do some of the most macho cultures (Italy, Spain, Greece, Russia) think nothing of embracing and kissing their fellow MAN? Not withstanding that they might shoot or knive each other the next minute.



  1. Since I represent the San Francisco viewpoint on this kissing subject, I feel a need to respond yet can’t quite think of anything that would constructively augment your observations.

    • San Fran, is it? On a par with Brighton then, down the road here. So far I have avoided drawing Con’s attention to where he lives. Better safe than trying to live it down later.

      I like your turn of phrase; it’s dreamy: “Augment”. I’ll try it some time.

  2. Looney, since I also live in the SF Bay area, I may be able to help some.

    I think the misconception of the Puritan Pit is the problem. Apparently, Ursula, you know nothing about our region. It seems like a non-issue here.

    • Yeah, well, Con, as usual I am Dock caught between you and a hard place: What’s a NON-issue? In San Fran. Or Brighton.

      You are quite right. I know nothing. It’s best that way. Plead ignorance, innocence, idiocy and you’ll be excused.

      As to Puritan Pit: I will declare my hand. I know Puritans. And I am a cherry stone.

      Kiss Kiss

      • Relax a bit. I am simply saying that Puritan Pit doesn’t fit the description of San Francisco. Men kiss men all the time, and, although they are gay and although in our culture straight men generally do not, it bothers me not at all that Sean Connery kisses another man.

        I know nothing of Brighton or your area. I see no problem in assuming the same difficulty might be operating in reverse. It may not be easy to distinguish the attitudes of Abilene, Kansas from San Francisco, California where you are sitting. Where is the problem in that? I should think you would like to hear what the locals, me and Looney, have to say about them.

        • I am perfectly relaxed, Con.

          The “puritan pit”, alas, does not refer to San Fran. It refers to the CONsortium.

          Remember when I made Magpie aka David into Daphne of Jack Lemmon “Some like it Hot” fame? Dear oh dear. He wasn’t so much tottering as some of you were toot tooting afterwards. The world of the pure was positively ablaze with exchanges over my vile self flying around. Doesn’t matter. Some jokes do fall flat on their face.

          Other than that: Sure, I always like to hear what the locals have to say.
