Fandom and Ew, Girls →

urbanhymnal:

I’ve talked about before how I feel about the idea that there is anything called a normal fan, but today I want to talk a little bit about fandom because it is often held up as being gross in some fashion and I think, at its base, there is one simple phrase that this disgust…

"You are weak, childish, and foolish.  It is the ongoing effort to erase identities and make people feel bad for being passionate.”

From the Wegmans magazine, Whole Grain Cinnamon Oatmeal & Fruit Cookies.  I made them with raisins, dates, and pecans.

Day 1, evening: Okay Wegmans, it’s possible to have too many flax seeds.  They taste like flax cardboard.

Day 2, morning: Still flaxy.  More like a healthy breakfast cookie. 
Good dipped in chai.

Midday to Evening: Hm, they’re kind of good.  Tried them spread with (natural) peanut butter.  I accidentally ate too many of them.  They’re kind of like a less messy granola…yum.

(Day 3 data unavailable as no specimens remained.)
