Trump

I’m trying to say as little as possible about Trump, while still not ignoring his more vile tendencies. I can’t imagine that he could ever actually win the presidency. The primaries are mostly wank for the majority of candidates. I’m honestly not sure Trump wants to be POTUS in the first place. But since he’s never done anything with skill, honesty, or integrity, I wouldn’t expect him to be honest about his true intentions. I’m not surprised that Republicans and…

Um…

Am I the only one who remembers that Glenn Frey was kind of an asshole? Not quite as bad as Don Henley though. Both of those dudes were bitter jags when the Beavis and Butthead album knocked Eagles Greatest Hits off the charts. “I guess we’ll all get together in 20 years for the Beavis and Butthead reunion.” And then we did. Because Beavis and Butthead are hilarious.

Political Correctness Metaphor

Been thinking about Political Correctness, because that’s something I do a lot. It began as a great idea, and despite a few who have used it as an excuse to be what I call Word Bullies, it’s still a good idea. Living in a liberal town and having almost entirely progressive friends, it’s easy for me to forget how much racism, sexism, and general fuckery there is to be had in the world. And then it becomes an election year,…

I’ve had it with these Monkey Fighting Snakes, on this Monday to Friday plane!

OMFG, I hate everything today. The washer in our building has been broken since well before Christmas. Once it had been broken for two weeks, they magnanimously decided to allow H a key to a different building to use their washer. Alas, they kept his driver’s license (they claim they gave it back, but it’s fucking nowhere to be found) so now we can’t do any more laundry until H gets a new one from secretary of state–or they actually…

Did Funzo Just Say “Hurt Everyone?”

I finally, at long last, have my proper medication in hand after being more than two weeks without it. As of last night though, my psyche was pretty much broken. I was within a breath of telling H to “shut the fuck up and stay away from me,” which is simply not how we speak to each other. But my brain was broken. In weirdness news, I learned that there’s a way to report people who steal your Tweets. One…

Don’t Blame the Box

Every now and then, someone will express surprise to me that I have this person or that person as an online friend, despite them spouting unpopular views or having strong opinions I don’t agree with, or even doing shitty things like posting spoilers on purpose. But people who know me well know that I enjoy dialoging about tough topics–especially among those with whom I disagree. I don’t want my life to be an echo chamber of shit I already agree…

Indian Food

I had Indian food for the first time last night. Paneer with spinach and a seafood dish in a spicy sauce with yogurt and nuts. Also, garlic paneer. H had paneer as well and a citrusy tomato sauce. It was really spicy. Mine was supposed to be “medium” but I also found it intensely spicy. Here’s the thing.I need to learn to make–at the very least, paneer and that sauce, which is called “korma” sauce. I’m guessing that this will…
