@Hot Doom right! I get why some women do that, because our media is filled with representations of women and "women's interests" (UGH) being silly, inconsequential, uninteresting, overly dramatic or needy or... and on and on and on. the trick is being able to see that EVERYBODY likes (and does) stupid shit either some or all of the time, and if you think you're better at something than most people, lord it over ALL of them. (like: I mock my partner for the amount of ice &/or mix he puts in his whiskey.)
@Hot Doom I actually figured out what it is! what you're saying, for sure, but also the feeling that she's one of those women that makes it a point of pride to not like or do "girl" things, and always has hobbies/interests that seem like a little ticket into the boy's club, ie. the big lebowski. not that women CAN'T like those things, just that holding them up as tokens of how "not like other girls" she is just reeks of internalized misogyny. girls are boring and dumb and silly, therefore I will decorate with teeth and medical posters. ya know?
I can't figure out if I hate this or just don't get it. oh well.
every day is a good day for bradbury! (but holy moly, is that one sad or what.)
HOLY MOLY THAT IS GOOD.
@Danzig! good! I fucking hate that word, and this video and thread are giving me a major case of the twitches.
@adorable-eggplant drinking always gets me too! (don'tthinkaboutitdon'tthinkaboutitdon'tthinkaboutit)
@divot oh, that was mean.
@sheistolerable - I totally get what you mean! actual, SINCERE congrats! being happy shouldn't be something to be sniffed at.
@RK Fire ok maybe this will sound bonkers, but potato pizza. needs: naan bread/pizza crust, potatoes, olive oil, s&p & thyme, cheese of choice (I use the vegan stuff). to do: cut potato into really thin rounds, toss in olive oil and seasonings, roast in oven until juuust a bit crispy. put cheese on crust, arrange potatoes on top (maybe w/some caramelized onions), then bake!
anyway, that's what I have when I need to eat feelings. bready, carby, potato-y, cheesy, crunchy salty goodness.
oh dear. my boy will be so thrilled that I've found another thing with "shitty fake drum sounds" to listen to. whoops!
