I came to this late but still wanted to comment to say I’m sorry for your loss. Being at peace with the loss makes perfect sense to me. My grandmother didn’t make it as far as yours, she was around 80, but her dementia got steadily worse over the last 5ish years. By the time she went, we were all ready for it, and Read more

Oh jesus. I’d love to say I’d hope Bernie knows better than to pick her if he manages to win, but I think we both know that’s not the case. Read more

You make an interesting point. But there is a possibility that we retake the senate as well, and could actually make legislative gains. And Warren (and Buttigieg too actually) have mentioned the possibility of packing the Supreme Court (Biden and Sanders are against it), which could also affect things. Read more

Thank you for this, but I really am confused by people asserting that Biden is the most electable against trump. I don’t think he can go head to head with him and come out looking strong, which seems to be what a lot of people vote on. I could see Warren being fierce against him (if not as great as Harris would have Read more

Shitting on any candidate doesn’t make anyone else poll better. If anyone wants to support Warren, write about how great she is. That’s what primaries should be goddammit - talking about why each candidate would be great. (And if anyone can tell me ANY reason they think Biden would be great, I’m all ears.) Read more

I liked Harris. I loved Castro. I was ok with Booker. All my alternates have dropped out, and my opinion of the others standing has dropped too. I guess I’m neutral on Patrick, but his campaign is a joke anyway. Read more

I’m honestly nervous at this point about Warren not winning. There was a time when I was reasonably happy with other prospects, but now the likely alternatives seem dismal (still far less dismal than trump sure).  Read more

Watch The Crown! This last season was good. I thought I’d miss Claire Foy but Olivia Colman was very good. What I found most interesting though was that the season kinda made me like Charles.

I looked it up and I had no idea these were called spritz cookies. My mom has my great grandmother’s cookie press and recipe for what we called butter cookies, but I think they are the same thing. I always loved them, we made them at Christmas. Didn’t find the time this year, which I’m a little sad about. Read more

I find it difficult to set aside the time to read. I really should, because I enjoy it, and I used to be such an avid reader (though I’ve always been very slow at it). I am very slowly making my way through An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green, and really enjoying it. I’m reading it with bearddamnheroes, which Read more

Ugh, what a fuckhead. Glad to hear they're no longer together.
