quiltails:

"Love Eternal" by Jill Allen of McIntosh, FL, part of the large applique group at Quilfest last month.  I love how it looks like a tattoo.  Funnily enough, while the judging for the show was going on, the same hotel was hosting a tattoo art convention.  A lot of us quilters were watching the ink go by and thinking, that’d make a great quilt!

strangedarling liked your post “everwest replied to your post:Who the fuck buys a “super trimmed”…”

Of course now he’s all enamored of the home made corned beef/pastrami idea. If I trim it down right, we’ll have more beef meals within the budget than we did before. (Though we can put away embarrassing quantities of brisket and corned beef… so leftovers from those are lunch portions at best) Beef stew, stir fry, ground if we get bored of stew, a fajita night

At least through winter a brisket a month along with the veg allotment (and additional non-seasonals that I meant to cultivate on the kitchen windowsills (celery…) that I haven’t because reasons…) should help keep us at/under budget. Which will be good =^.^=

This cracked me up, because I can imagine my girlfriend writing this, word for word. I told her there was a “super trimmed brisket” option with no fat on it, and she asked me “why the @”#$ would anyone buy that?”

lol! Exactly! All I can think of is that it would be a cheaper way to buy stew/stir fry/fajita meat… since you always pay per lb for a butcher to trim anything. Pastrami maybe?

I’m sick of magical worlds with no technology. I want fairy run coffee shops where you can get a latte with a shot of charisma, because you’ve got a big presentation you’re worried about, or witches working at Apple selling phones that automatically appear in your pocket if you accidentally leave it somewhere, or psychics running hair salons who always know how you want your hair to look, or aura reader therapists. I just really want normalized magic in modern society

We [Fraction and his wife, Kelly Sue DeConnick] were pregnant at the time, and while I was out there I started to realize that if I had a daughter, there would come a day when I would have to apologize to her for my profession. I would have to apologize for the way it treats and speaks to women readers, and the way it treats its female characters.

I knew that if we had a daughter, because I know my wife and I know the kind of girl she wants to raise and I know the kind of girl I want to raise, she was going to look at what I did for a living and want to know how the fuck I could stomach it. How could I sell her out like that?” Fraction continued. “That conversation is still coming, and I’m bracing for it in the way that some dads brace for their daughter’s first date or boyfriend. I became acutely aware that I had sort of done that thing that lots of privileged hetero cisgendered white dudes do. ‘I’m cool with women, and that’s enough.’ It’s not enough. It’s embarrassing to say, because we somehow have attached shame to learning and evolving our opinions, culturally, but I became aware that there was a deficiency of and to women in my work, and all I could do at that moment was take care of my side of the street.
