On How We Eat

Though I hold no truck with the notion that americans are unimaginative in our breakfasts. Thats the sort of thinking that propagates the idea that WASPs are somehow the default human and everybody/thing else is some exception.

a partial list of american breakfast foods: toast and butter; toast and jam; scrambled eggs; fried eggs; french toast; pancakes and waffles both with fruit and without; cold fried chicken, grits, cream of wheat, oatmeal, malt-o-meal; grapefruit; any other fruit and cream; scrapple (seriously we invented scrapple and they dare claim natto is putrid goop?); biscuits and gravy
fucking etc.
and thats not counting breakfast burritos, migas, huevos rancheros and all the other food we claim is ethnic (not to leave out other cultures but I'm southwest-y).

"cold cereal" isn't a result of unimaginative people its a result of food deserts, marketing and overwork.

On Hillary Clinton, Do Not Feel Guilty About Your Pleasures

Nobody in the history of the English language has ever felt guilty about anything they call a guilty pleasure.

On Weekend Roundup

SPORTS!
ugh!

The Seattle Storm are doing better but the first week or two was just rough. It was my fault I got excited because Sue Bird was back and Sue Bird is fucking magic. I'm just kind of spoiled by the sneakily good Storm of (the second half of) last season.
And would it kill them to go for an offensive rebound. ONCE?

The Sounders are taking names though (we will not speak of the New England Revs).

I am so hoping Ghana knocks the USMNT the fuck out because Oba/Dempsey have been amazing and I want Dempsey back on the squad.

On Weekend Roundup

@adorable-eggplant Ugh the summer transition was brutal. We were doing great doing great high of 80 high of 80 then bam summer. Why do people even live in Texas?

I don't regret it but I've spent the last pointing accusing fingers at myself in the mirror for knowingly taking a job in an un-air-conditioned warehouse. In May. In Texas. What was I thinking‽

On Friday Open Thread

So I've been at my new job for a week now and I'm just sort of getting progressively more paranoid. I do sooo much less work than at Target. I'm sort of constantly afraid that I'm going to get fired any minute on the grounds that oh it turns out they didn't really need another worker.

I mean as terrible of a job as entry level retail is I know that I'm damn good value for money and thus basically will never be fired for anything short of punching customers in the throat while stealing iphones and sexually harassing my bosses.

I mean I'm doing my job at the warehouse and I'm doing it well but I can't shake the feeling that they're going to notice that they have 2 people doing a 1.5 person job... hopefully it's just been a slow week.
