These hats. I wish she sold them.

On Making Little Cakes With Martha Washington

Love this! And I want that cookbook. In most baked goods, over-handling or over-mixing the dough leads to toughness. So maybe that's it? Or perhaps the ratios were off. Such ambiguous measurements!

On Beauty Q&A: Do You Smell What I Smell?

@regina dentata I mean... hit in the face with the smell. The roommate did not hit me in the face. Nor did the cat. It was like a solid cat-urine-wave.

On Beauty Q&A: Do You Smell What I Smell?

@madge I had a roommate once who had a terrible cat. I loved the roommate but he rarely cleaned the cat box. I would come home on a hot day and get hit in the face. Shockingly, he never seemed to smell it. I would have to threaten him to clean it. He didn't want to spend more on litter. Ugh. Honestly I don't think I'll ever live with a cat again. Smell-PTSD.

On Estate Jewelry: The Horror

@polka dots vs stripes that seems utterly ridiculous. like if i ate a BLT for lunch then went and committed a crime and they're like... "we found this DNA on the scene, and it would appear a delicious PIG robbed this bank."

On My History of Being Fat

@Diaphanous Gown weight is an incredibly fraught issue. I hope you'll keep sharing your experiences, but they don't exist in a vacuum. When we're constantly judged negatively for our weight and actually encouraged to have competitive feelings about it, a lot of anger and sadness comes up. It may not even be directed at you in particular, just at a system that causes us to view ourselves so negatively if our weight is somehow "wrong."

On My History of Being Fat

An interesting read but I had a sinking feeling as it got toward the end. The part which occurs in many an article like this - the "I discovered yoga," "I learned to love my body," "I found what I really loved," any or all of the above that causes the weight to just FALL off. Not knocking the author for this or disrespecting her story. It's just that I see this narrative a lot and because it hasn't worked that way for ME, it seems almost like a fairy story. Feelings, I have them.
