Oh, man, same! I think I have two white guy books I want to read (the Erik Larson one about the Lusitania, and one written by a local author about a plane crash near here where the guy survived and it was big local news), and that’s pretty much it. lol. I keep thinking I’ll get around to them at some point, but I have…
Yeah, MPR got a copy and gave a pretty detailed report on the Complaint. It’s important to note that it’s VERY early in the investigation process, and it’s extraordinary to have this amount of information this early on - all because he just volunteered that info.
Of course, as a gender, neither men nor women are more talented than the other. It’s just that publishing is massively biased in favor of whiteness and maleness, so it’s easier for a white man of mediocre talent to get published. Thus, there’s simply much more out there by white men that just isn’t that good. You…
You betcha! I started blogging all the books I read back in 2014...and then it went down to just my favorites...and now I haven’t blogged since last May, lol. But you can check out my (usually brief, occasionally funny, sometimes painfully earnest) reviews here: http://www.thewomeniread.com/
“She earned it.” Oof. I mean, yeah. But oof.
That’s the thing about all these conversations about whether or not we should accept back these fuckers after some nebulous period of “time out” from public life - it presupposes that there’s no one else with sufficiently good (or better!) talent that we could direct our attention to. It all focuses on the tragic loss…
I have a literal wall of books, built for me by my husband, the shelves pleasingly back-lit with museum lights. It is one item and it sparks tremendous joy.
I checked out the Savage x fenty lingerie, and was terribly disappointed. I wasn’t a huge fan of the designs, but that’s fine, we all have different tastes. The real problem was the production quality. The fabric was scratchy and stiff, the elastic obviously cheap and old (crackly, losing its stretch). It was utter…
lol. i accept your weird and hilarious association. :)

I did! Sons and Lovers was good, but my thoughts/feelings on Lady Chatterly are so warped, I really can’t rate them against one another.
I was aggressively sexually harassed while traveling for work in my early 20s, and felt desperately alone and unsafe even behind the triple-locked door of my hotel room afterward. I tried to read to take my mind off things, but the only book I’d brought along was Lady Chatterly’s Lover. I’d been super into it up until…
SERIOUSLY, DO NOT CLICK IF YOU’RE AT WORK, KIDS. Hoo-boy!
There’s a small, but well-trod, revolving door between the Catholic and Evanglical/Born-Again churches. She was raised Catholic, I’m fairly certain, and this could be a phase or it could be a repudiation. Seems like there are always a handful of these in each EV congregation.
It’s the Evangelical Born-again thing. It’s inherently manipulative and abusive. You can be a good guy while being a born-again, but you have to work REALLY HARD at it, and have the right temperament for it to begin with. And you’ll still be a tremendous dick on accident on a somewhat regular basis. If your partner is…
Pineapple is super weird for me. I can drink the juice just fine, but if I eat the ripe fruit, I have what’s clearly some sort of allergic reaction - the inside of my mouth feels like I just ate a handful of poison ivy and prickly pear covered in lemon juice. I can eat canned pineapple just fine, though.
lol. a good banana is great. but either an unripe or an overripe banana is terrrrrrible.
Rainier cherries would be the absolute top of my list if they weren’t roughly the same cost per ounce as fucking palladium where I live. I treat myself to a small bag of them *maybe* once every other year.
I thought your ranking was suspect, until I realized your region. Stone fruit is garbage by the time it gets to the midwest. They have to pick it so early, that it’s 6-5 and pick ‘em whether they’ll actually ripen or go straight to rot. We have excellent berries and apples, though.
