Sadly, it's time to put the Eve's Folly Youtube channel to bed for a while. I haven't been able to garner enough viewership to justify the time involved. And I have to say, it's just the saddest thing to be pouring out your heart and soul and have no one watching. Not that I could stay hidden forever. We acting types are, as Tom Stoppard's Player so famously said, the opposite of people. We're compelled to show the things other people want to hide.
So I'll still pop back on from time to time, and maybe resurrect it in the future. And I'll certainly continue to make more posts here on Madness in the Garden: all about plants and the people who love them. For now - so long, farewell, etc etc. Love, "Eve."
Well folks, this is it. V.D. is here. If you've read my book, you'll know what I'm talking about. No, it's not Venereal Disease. Many of us would prefer venereal disease to this day. That's right, I'm talking about the infamous Valentine's Day. It's a ridiculous, made-up holiday, and the bane of any florist's or former florist's existence. For florists, this is the IRS on April 15th. Fortunately, I am happily retired from that industry, so I can sit back and sneer smugly from a distance. And instead, I can kick off a new blog.
Welcome to "Eve's Folly," a place where I will blog about whatever I damn well please. I already have a writing blog stashed away under another identity, so on this one I'm going to shake it up a bit. I may post here on women's issues, sexuality, sex, sexy stuff, stuff about sex, gender roles, sex and sexuality, and more. Ok, don't get your hopes up. I have a new baby in the house, so sex is about the furthest thing from my mind at the moment. You're more likely to see me contributing to that bane of the internet, the Humorous Parenting Blog. Sorry. Gotta do it.
So, off and running in 2015 with a goofy new blog - and some exciting things planned for Fresh Cut this year. A huge Thank You to all my readers and reviewers thus far, you are all amazing!
"Eve A. Floriste"
If you're on this website, chances are you already know "All About Eve." Who is really author E.J. Bouinatchova: a writer of the strange, dark, funny, and eclectic, a former florist, and a passionate plant-o-phile.
