A Crap Day

I'd be lying if I said that this wasn't a crap day. First of all, the Turdwaffle won last night, which is a harbinger of some serious moneybombs blowing up our electoral edifice for the foreseeable future. Second of all, Ray Bradbury died after a long, good, productive life. I'd like to think that he died banging the bejeezus out of a zaftig cutie-pie.

Yeah, it's a pretty craptastic day, the one consolation so far is that ripe mulberries have been appearing on the trees, and I was able to partake of a few this afternoon. It's a small consolation, but you have to grab whatever positivity you can, especially if it's sweet and sun-ripened.

On the other claw, now there's plenty more opportunity for "Turdwaffle" to became a widespread nickname for Imperial Walker.

especially if he dodges the law and makes his play for national politics. You're Welcome, America!

It's catchy, and she's cute as hell.

I hope he gets indicted- all that Koch money just so he can share a cell with Blago.

I love some rhubarb. One of my uncles typically makes a rhubarb mush- it's like a pie filling without the crust, and it's fantastic.

One of these days, I'm going to make a knotweed compote, because it's rhubab-y.

Locally we have Turkey rhubarb growing wild, which is basically the same thing.

A little concerned you refer to her as zaftig...she's actually quite slim, she just has large breasts.

Do you cook it down with some sugar and serve it in a pie?

I think I'm going to have to watch that video again, just to be sure...

Still no purslane...

As for rhubarb, mine is strangely miniscule this year. No, not just the stalks, but even the leaves, and the entire look of the plant. I'm not sure what's going on, but it should look like it's been taking steroids at this point, not looking like it belongs in a dollhouse garden.

Every free mulberry is a slap in the junk for Gubbenor Wankler.

It will come, and it will be delicious! I keep waiting for it. The lambs' quarters are growing well, and I've partaken of them, but the purslane hasn't reared its succulent fronds yet.

He'll be walking bent over all June, then- I live near a former mulberry plantation.
