Today I earned partner of the year award as N painted the living room while I watched Ru Paul’s Drag Race in front of a space heater and ate peanut butter.
[Image: Three photos. The first shows Laverne Cox, a beautiful Black trans woman with long light colored hair seated, head tilted, across from CeCe McDonald, a beautiful Black trans woman seen from behind, as they speak. The second photo is a shot of a row of prison cells. The third is a picture of CeCe McDonald speaking with the back of Laverne Cox shown.]
FREE CECE, the new documentary with Laverne Cox, explores the roles race, class and gender played in CeCe McDonald’s case. McDonald’s claim of self defense was rejected by Hennepin County prosecutors. The documentary explores the implications of CeCe’s story as a survivor, housing trans women in male prisons, and the practice of keeping trans women in solitary confinement.

Baby’s 1st winter ride was a total success. Thanks, studded tires! Hot damn, I can’t believe I might actually do it this year.

Other than how incidentally swastika-ey one of the patches look, I couldn’t be happier with how this quilt turned out. I’m unreal proud of myself for sticking through it. Months and months of work, and she’s all done. Here is a shot of (most of) the whole thing, and some details of some of the actual quilting.
Hey, winter! With the aid of my new quilt I am going to sleep the fuck outta you.
♥ DEAD MEN DON’T CATCALL ♥
Nor do genuinely decent men, or classy men, or men with wives/girlfriends, or in fact MOST living breathing men. The few that do? Find where their mother, sister, girlfriend and/or wives live and rebuke them over teaching their barbarian some manners. End of story
♥ DEAD MEN DON’T ADD BORING, UNNECESSARY “BUT WAH WAH WAH NOT ALL MEN” COMMENTARY TO PEOPLE’S ARTWORK ♥
SHIT I HAVE THE URGE TO TATTOO THIS ON MY BODY
Not just unnecessary commentary, but commentary that puts the onus on women. Again. Blame women for not teaching men.

I am super ready to retire from real life and make a living making quilts and not work and be the busiest every second of my life. Retirement is such a fuckin’ pipe dream, and it will never happen, even if I get old.
I just wanna retire from the world where everyone is mean and terrible, and live in a quilted home, and only kind folks are allowed in.
Anyways, my birthday is on Saturday and to celebrate I made hot chocolate with soy milk and filled up a cup with rice whipped cream. Because the only reason to drink cocoa is the whipped cream, and it’s probably been 5 years or more since I have had that. Now I am running a bath, sitting on the bathroom floor in a blanket in front of a heat lamp, and listening to an audiobook and pretending I don’t have a million things to do, and washing my hair even though I just did that yesterday. Best birthday gift ever! Now, just to work on that quilted house.

The CBC mayoral forum occurred this Wednesday from noon until one at City Centre Mall. It was described, in clammy handed anticipation, as “the last major event of the campaign” by none other than the CBC. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation boasts an impressive arsenal, both at present and historically, of television shows, and they know what the people want. So what do we want?
In 1929, fearing the encroaching influence of American mass media, it was recommended Canada establish a propaganda mill it can call its own. And thus, the CBC was created, tasked with fostering their own special brand. To paraphrase the initial mission statement of the CBC:

Ohhhh, Halloween. It’s about that time that white dudes start complaining about ladies baring skin while planning out their super-funny-culturally-insensitive-you’re-just-being-too-sensitive-and-people-can’t-do-anything-these-days-without-stepping-on-toes-you’re-oppressing-me costumes. Priorities, amirite?
