We ran into this kind of prejudice when my husband was the parent at home. It very much is a matter of patriarchy. If not for patriarchal thinking, women abusers would be identified more readily, and individual men would not be pre-judged as potential abusers.
This is why I despise every commercial where the dad is a bumbling idiot who doesn’t know how to pack a lunch! or wash clothes! or change a diaper! or or or...
Holy crap. I’ve been reading so much shit about people’s spouses ducking out of parenting and I believe it. I’ve seen it. The way that one of my friend is treated by her husband - like a live in maid and nanny - is abysmal.
But then I read things like, “Dads are a danger to kids and I won’t leave my kid alone at a…
I’ll have to look for one! I’ve done labyrinths with Catholic and Episcopal churches that didn’t require you to be a subscriber.
Your piggie is 10x cuter than Devin Nunes Cow.
Ma Finch went to a silent retreat - it was run by nuns but you didn’t have to be religious to be part of it - and she claims it was one of the best-spent days of her life. She’s hugely distractable so the silence really allowed her to focus.
Yes, skipping dinner is good advice and what I am thinking as well. I am bummed about missing it though. My family is very close and we all get along quite well. This other thing was an anomaly. We do not do conflict. I had a disagreement with a cousin 19 years ago and it is still talked about a few times a year.
We’re back from the beach and I have a mountain of laundry to do. And a dusty house to clean. Spring is here and I should be happy but I’m not. Maybe I’m just tired from vacation. I’m dreading going back to therapy. I’m tired of talking, sick of the sound of my own voice. What I need is a non religious, silent retreat.
I definitely appreciate the no tax thing. But, since I’m not used to the currency translation in my head, I’m not sure if something 200 dkk is a lot of money or not. And then there are days like today where we went from euro to krona to kroner all in one day.
I have to decide whether or not to go to a family dinner tonight. Last time we were all together my sister was weirdly mean to me. I don’t want to rehash it and I’m not over it either. My family gets weird around any sort of feelings.

At first, I thought that top photo was a guinea pig, and then...I realized you meant a PIG pig and I squealed! So cute! He’s smiiiiiiling in his sleep, I'm dying.
You guys!!! I got my Piggie!!! He’s literally the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. He snuggles and makes adorable noises and he buries himself in straw to sleep and it’s the cutest thing!!! I'm so in love with him.
Well, a new head of my office was confirmed my the government yesterday. During her confirmation hearing, it was basically everything my agency does is wrong and she’s going to come in and fix it. I’m keeping an open mind, hoping she’s just saying what the legislature wants to hear in order to get the job. Plus, 90%…
Spring has officially started and the weather is behaving appropriately! Plus, our visitors are flying home tonight so I’ll be blessedly free from fun and entertainement.
Have fun in Copenhagen and a boring flight home!
It is, yeah. There are so many aspects of science process and publishing that get raised here...
Oh man, I haven’t had a dirty chai in so long. Sounds perfect!
Advantages of my job: freelance! flexibility! working from home with cats!
It’s my last full day in Europe. I just arrived in Copenhagen where we will be flying in about 17 hours. I’m both excited to be heading home (all the signs will be in English! No more backpack carrying! I’ll understand the cost of what I’m buying instead of assuming it's reasonable!) and sad to be leaving.
