@tofuswalkman Hooray for Justice Sotomayor! But this decision is really disheartening. I moved back to northern Michigan 2 yrs ago after many years elsewhere, and am constantly picking up my jaw off the floor at things even "liberal" people here say about race. Where do you even begin?
Aaaaah a whole list of amazing-looking books that I haven't read, just when I finally have some time for leisure reading! I am printing this out and taking it to the library. Thank you!
@PennyCentury The Harriet Outfit is my outfit every day, only you just made me realize that it was the Harriet Outfit. Now everything makes sense!
HARRIET FOREVER!!!! <3<3<3
@Sarah Rain Thank you.
This weekend I was chatting with some new friends, who all happened to be youngish mothers, and one mentioned filing "no-vax" paperwork or something at her kid's school. I was horrified, but also felt really awkward, as the only childless person in the group, and had no idea how / whether to say anything about it. (I kept my mouth shut.) On the one hand I think it's none of my business, but on the other, it's *everyone's* business. Especially other people with babies. What do you say in situations like that?

A weird butt!!! Hahaha that is a tragic truth, Jia you are amazing.
@cee Haha, that's excellent--not just once, but annually! (I wonder what the stats look like for cirrhosis of the liver among British poets?)
I have a vague memory (I spose I could look it up) of some (British) historic figure being "drowned in a butt of malmsey." That is a lot of wine!

There are also other (fancier!) ones in existence:
Good lord all I want is to have a nice glass of scotch in the bathtub now. WHY is it only Monday morning?
@adorable-eggplant It is called "Raising Steam" and reviews are a bit mixed:
But I am a diehard and will read it no matter what!
