I am joining with Carole today to share some brilliance regarding the Impeachment Trial currently underway…Yesterday began the question phase of the trial where the Senators submit questions for Justice Roberts to read out loud at which point either the selected counsel or both the House Managers and the President’s counsel answers the question or does not, as the case may be. (and there are a lot more not answered questions than are answered)
Don’t expect there to be any more honesty in this trial than there is from the IMPOTUS-in-Chief…
As a friend points out, the Supreme Court takes another hit as a credible institution as Chief Justice Roberts presides over a trial in which Trump’s lawyers lie (see “secret bunker”) and make absurd arguments (see Dershowitz: anything goes if it helps the president’s reelection)
Allies of Pres Trump have begun holding events in black communities where they praise the president as they hand out *tens of thousands of dollars in cash* to attendees. First giveaway took place last month in Cleveland.
Finally, if you do nothing else today – please call your Senators!
Have you called your Senators? 202-224-3121 gets you to the switchboard. If you think this is pointless, it’s not. It’s just as important to support your senator if your believe they’re on the right path as it is to share your views with one who you disagree with. Be counted.
“There’s a meme going around on Instagram stories, where you name three things that you hate, but everyone else loves.”
And, I am adding her disclaimer as well:
So here are Three Things Everyone Else Loves and I hate*
*(which is to say ‘dislike strongly’ since I don’t want to be lectured about the word ‘hate’ (either)…..)
Thing One —
Instagram Stories. Honestly, I just don’t get them. Why are they so much better than just a regular Instagram post? Perhaps it is the most telling indication of my age coupled with my complete lack of understanding in how (and why!!) to do them. And, please, no offers to give me an Instagram Story lesson…(because that could be thing four!!)
Thing Two —
Chia Seeds. Seriously, is there anything more disgusting on earth? And, why would you ruin perfectly good yogurt with the addition of these nasty little things?
Thing Three —
Starbucks. Oy, I know! What??? Truly. They have done more for the ruination of coffee than any company I can think of. Truly. But this did make me laugh this morning!
Because Trump has fucked up our country so bad, I think it’s only fair that we enact a law that white women who voted for him are not allowed to drink Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
Joining with Carole today to share three things! Errr…okay maybe one thing with three parts!
“… thinking back on it now reminds that the pleasures of the table, and of life, are infinite – toujours bon appétit!”
Today is Julia Child’s birthday! She would have been 107 years old.
“I’m not a chef… I’m a cook and a teacher.”
My cooking library contains two books by Julia and Mastering the Art of French Cooking was the first cookbook I ever bought. I learned so much from Julia about how to cook. She absolutely was (and is!) an amazing teacher!
“I really enjoy cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food…”
I am quite positive that I have watched (and re-watched!) every cooking show she has ever done.
Today I think I will settle in with my knitting and watch Julie & Julia again!
