Question(s) [OMG Spoilers!]  Reply with quote  

Was Mother Basil was really a man, a woman being played by a man in "the play" or just a hairy old woman who shaved? The quote that inspired the question and the debate with my wife is:

"How I loved watching her shave every morning ... carefully shaving the blue-black whiskers from her face. She would show me how to shave the little spot under your nose, and how she pulled aside the skin on her neck, so as to not nick her Adam's apple."

Thanks!

I'm going to need to reread the book (I just finished last night), because while I remember the line, I'm not sure if it was meant for truth or just to inspire hilarity. I just thought it was a huge convent of lesbian nuns.

And her name is Basil? I had forgotten that. Wasn't one of the witches a Basil?

The three witches are Parsley, Sage, & Rosemary.

I got the Tranny feeling from Mother Basil when reading it myself, but I don't have any personal experience with Nuns so maybe it is just a lesbian thingy.

Mmmmm... Kissing girls is a great way to pass the time.

So Chris answered this on the radio interview he did, yes Mother Basil is a man. Smile

My wife will be happy because she gets to be right again.

so, in the process of Reading this new and blessed little tome (which will probably be finished by the end of the week if not by tomorrow...) i find a great similarity between Pocket and Biff.

sorry if that's been stated already, i'm trying not to read the spoilers yet :$ i just had to say that, it's been gnawing at my brain all day for some reason.

ok, now i can read the spoilers Very Happy

yay!

I love how there is essentially a happy ending to every book, though be it slightly twisted to be that way. I think I will be incredibly sad the day Chris writes a true tragedy...he could do it, but it would just be unsatisfying and dog fuckingly depressing. Like when Charlie died in A Dirty Job, I was like "NO!" about to curse and bring down the heavens and wrath of the gods with my voodoo powers, but then he was a squirrel person, so i guess it wasn't so bad...

mk, i shouldn't write or post anything after I have redirected the chi flow in my apartment...

yay Cordelia and Pocket Smile
