burn out

is about what i'm feeling right now. did you all know there are more
than 2000 posts on this here blog, the vast majority of which are
mine, but not all. and after 2000 posts that all basically say the
same thing, i am so tired of politics. i never thought that would
happen. i wrote about the one thing i thought wouldn't bore me. it
turns out that 5 years and 2000 blogposts is the the boring point. so,
until i can give a rats ass, let's talk about something fun,
entertaining. Anyone got any recipes they'd like to share? complaints
or adulations in the romance department? some new music they can't get
out of their head or a book that wowed them?
As for me, i am halfway to perfecting porkchops limonata (chops are
figured, but the sauce needs work) after a year of self imposed
nunnery i am thinking it might be time to shake my groove thing, but
not with the cookie cutter hipster boy dj type that played with my
hands in north carolina.

no one could have predicted

think of the main political parties as frats, and suddenly the
enormous enthusiam gap between men and women for this election seems
clear. for years most of the girls have been avoiding keggers at the

those parties is the chance to fetch beers for they boys to chants of
'show us yer tits!' instead they head to the keggers at the democrats
house. no one shouts 'show us yer tits' but the girls are still
expected to fetch the beer and clean up the morning after and show
their tits when asked nicely, wether they want to or not. eventually
the women wise up. they aren't much better off and the price they have
to pay is too steep. why go to a party at all when you can stay home
and save the humiliation.
certainly no one (cough) could have predicted this during the
primaries, what with all the sexist dogwhistles and cat calls from the

ha! one whole month my bitchez

one whole month (4 weeks actually) since i quit smoking. the gum is
still making my mouth all blistery and hurty, but i don't care. one
whole month. that's the longest ever and i'm even doing okay around my
smoking family members. there was a wee slip a few weeks ago when i
stole 3 drags off a guy's smoke after many many drinks. but it wasn't
a whole one and i went right back to the gum after. so yay me.
