We haven’t had an Open Thread in a long time. Here’s one so we can talk about anything we want.
I’ll start off.
I roasted some potatoes last night. Little red ones in garlic and salt with a little Kraft Italian dressing. This is a recipe my Mom used to make. It was delish. I saved the rest of the taters to eat today. I’m getting really good at this cooking thing. My neighbours always take a peek in the community kitchen and ask me what I’m cooking today.
My neighbour-woman Charlie bakes on the weekends and uses our ovens. She baked double chocolate muffins last weekend. The only problem is they were severely dry. I don’t think she uses butter or oil in them and so they weren’t very good. I want a nice way of telling her but I don’t want to offend her. Maybe I’ll just suggest she use oil in her mix to bring the chocolate out more.
Charlie had an oven thermometer that someone stole. If you cook in a community kitchen you sort of have to be right there. I take a book with me.
I finished reading a book called The Pagan Lord, historical fiction about the Saxons fighting the Danes in the 8th century. I tend to read one paper book and one online book. I’m finishing up Jeffrey’s ‘Unpacking Queer Politics.’ Some twanz on YouTube stalked me to another comment section and started calling me a transphobe bigot and then had the nerve to recommend books to me as if I’m unaware of transpolitics. I recommended ‘Gender Hurts’ by Jeffreys. I doubt he’s going to read it.
Captain Andy stalked me around this week too. He found a comment of mine on Jenny McDermott’s video where she talks about how MRA’s spread a rumour she’s HIV positive. I used to date someone who was HIV positive and they feel so unloved, like Frankenstein. Anyway, an MRA started in on me there and right behind him was Liberal Lefty-man Andy to yap at me that I’m a bigot for understanding gender. He flat out asked Jenny to block me. She refused. He ended up being blocked by her and I. He whined about the term ‘gender critical’ implying it’s racism. Good Lordy, these people are so dumb!
I really like Jenny. She seems to be a tough cookie who doesn’t take shit. It’s not often you find many women like that. She really understands the politics of Youtube and how it’s a male cesspool. At least now I can comment on her videos without Andy buzzing around shouting at me in a mantrum.
