The Emissions Reduction Plan looks really pathetic to me. I hope I'm missing something because this ain't anything

britain needs to be dismantled and the ruling class fed into a wood chipper, is a thing a lot of people are saying these days

Instead of arguing about whether Christchurch or Tauranga is the more racist city think about ways you can challenge racism wherever you live

CW: hrt 

As a cis woman who has just (after 4 years of bullshit) started hrt for perimenopause, I see a huge connection in the gatekeeping of hrt to perimenopausal uterus-havers, and the gatekeeping of hrt to trans people. Just give us the fucking hormones, people. And any other treatments necessary!

ended up making palak paneer. The roti paratha was frozen and good, the palak paneer was fine - it'll probably mellow into itself tomorrow

Halfway between johnsonville and khandalla used to sit the improbably named Burma Motor Lodge, with an improbably optimistic helipad. They had a Dine and Dance on Fridays. Sometime in 1981 I was taken there and, against parental advice, ordered a Fisherman's Basket. It was a basket made entirely of potato chips, with a handle made of potato chips, filled with deep fried seafood. Reader, I have never recovered from this joy.

Inside you are two wolves. One of them recognizes that you are exhausted and wants to buy spinach and spices tomorrow so you can make palak paneer. The other wants pizza and cheesecake delivered. Ultimately they'll both be happy either way because they are pretty easy to please with food.

Have just repurposed our pill splitter as a "Skittle splitter", which sounds like some kind of slur from the 1940s, lmao

I will say this is the best waltz for accordion, erhu, and double bass I've heard, but on the other hand I've also heard it with a musical saw
