On Paying Your Share and When You Can't

@Decca This is reminding me a little bit of David Graeber's Debt, in which he talks about relationships among people who always owe each other a little something. It's like a symbol of friendship/love/family to continually be "in debt" to each other, even the tiniest bit, because to "settle up" means you don't need to interact with that person anymore. Or something.

On Long Distances, "Terribleness," and the Skin-Crawly Feeling

@Tuna Surprise Geez, I hope that wasn't actually part of his 9th Step, because isn't part of the 9th Step "don't contact people you've harmed if you're going to be a douchebag about it?"

On October Apple Cake With Oat, Olive Oil, and Dark Chocolate

I made this and it was fucking delicious. I used 85% dark chocolate (and, unlike the above 'Pinner, loved the savory bitterness) and doubled the salt. It makes excellent breakfast cake the next day.

On The Cuckold Toe-Dip

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose Yes, I've seen this referred to as the "One-Penis Rule." It's sexist and gross.

(also, you have to get out of that particular pool to get drinks, so that would hopefully cut down on the pool-peeing)
