The Corona Chronology: Day 23

Because we’re all about expanding intellectual horizons here at Bonnywood, I thought I’d share a few terms that have some significance in these pandemic times. Granted, many of these concepts also apply to non-pandemic situations, so feel free to use them in a manner that you find most […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 22

Note: I pulled this one out of the archives as we have just endured another evening of tumultuous weather. This reflection was originally penned in the middle of a scorching summer, not a Covid Spring, but the reactions and the musings remain the same…   Sunday in the […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 21

Reporter: “Thank you for agreeing to do this interview, Baby Jane.” Bette Davis, still in her Baby Jane makeup years after said film was filmed, because that mess is hard to scrape off, left: “The pleasure is all mine. As long as you stay on the other side […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 20

The Housewives of Self-Centered City react to the horrifying news that hair salons are still not considered essential services and will remain closed for at least two more weeks. Later that afternoon, they slip out of their houses (wearing hats, of course, but no masks) and join a […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 15

Note: Another snippet from one of my works-in-progress, wherein our heroine, Tiffany, has arrived at the lavish apartment of her potential and apparently-wealthy foreign lover, Aegean I. (Just accept his name for now; the backstory is too intense.) At one point, Tiffany simply wishes to use the powder […]

The Corona Chronology: Day 14

During the opening night of “Chernobyl: The Musical!”, a bevy of conversations took place…   Jan, far left: “I had no idea what I was getting into when I joined this chorus line. I mean, a girl’s gotta make a living and all that, but this is ridiculous. […]
