I love writing but I'm bad at writing about me.
On How We Eat
I was just talking about this sort of thing with a friend at work who grew up in Korea. I have a sweet tooth, though breakfast soups do sound delicious.
The conversation was mostly spurred by a comment I received from soneone else, who laughed at me when I said I often have Nutella at breakfast. What's so wrong about Nutella for breakfast?
ugh, usually I consider myself lucky to have minimal encounters of this sort, but this weekend I got catcalled three times in one evening and I was just about ready to destroy everything.
@Bunburying I love how he talks about the comedy world without even acknowledging the existence of Louis CK.
@chickpeas akimbo Shemar Moore Checks His Email
@Jaya exactly! It's as if white is "neutral" and any character who is not white and male needs to be defined by their ethnicity, even though there are plenty of children's sitcoms that aren't about kids who do "white" stuff like be on Fox News. I don't know. It seems like the guy doesn't want people of colour to be portrayed as average or the same.
@isabelle bleu 1920s costume theme! I love it!
I absolutely love this piece, in no small part because it turns "having it all" into something fresh, something that has different meaning for everyone.
also I love Beyoncé and anyone who doesn't, just... in a box to the left.
@adorable-eggplant yes, I would like this recipe, please.
Loved this. That's all I really have to say.
On I'm Never Cooking Again (Not That I Ever Cooked Much to Begin With, So There's Been Very Little Change)
@hangnail Agreed. I just don't like the idea that cooking = domesticity = femininity. I know someone who refuses to learn to cook because "feminism!" but really all she's doing is relying on her male roommate to feed her instead of learning how to cook.
Not wanting to cook because you think you're bad at it, or have alternate sources of food is fine. Not wanting to cook because of an old gender binary is duuuumb, regardless of your gender. Everybody eats! Cooking is just a means to that end. If you have another means, then use it. Otherwise, just learn to put foods together!
