i honestly… can’t… believe there was another ‘catfight’ in the woolpack today.
another instance of two intelligent women calling each other ‘bitch,’ jumping to irrational conclusions, talking smack about one another’s appearance, and insulting each other based on the success of their relationships with men.
i know that i’m going on and on about this every day, but these scenes are disconcertingly sexist and they’ve been happening with ALARMING frequency. if this is the new normal for emmerdale then i don’t know how long i’m going to last.
“Responsibility I believe accrues through privilege. People like you and
me have an unbelievable amount of privilege and therefore we have a
huge amount of responsibility. We live in free societies where we are
not afraid of the police; we have extraordinary wealth available to us
by global standards. If you have those things, then you have the kind of
responsibility that a person does not have if he or she is slaving
seventy hours a week to put food on the table; a responsibility at the
very least to inform yourself about power. Beyond that, it is a question
of whether you believe in moral certainties or not.”
~ Noam Chomsky

when life gives you leftover pizza dough and tofu scramble make breakfast buns for the freezer?
mix the leftover scramble, vegan cream cheese, sriracha, and trader joe’s mozzarella shreds all together and wrap it up in pizza dough pouches brush the tops with melted earth balance and bake at 450 degrees for about 12 minutes let cool and then into the freezer! to heat back up either let defrost and then bake in the toaster oven OR microwave straight out of the freezer for about 2 minutes.
ah but what about an alien au? humanity has made contact with multiple aliens, and earth society is slowly integrating into one that hosts human and alien alike.
sam’s from the planet that has agreed to be called iberis – sam’s language doesn’t fit the limited capacity of human vocal cords nor the single cord of those from vopall – and he’d hopped on a ship the moment peace treaties and passage agreements between earth and iberis had been ratified. studying earth first hand and learning about the plants in person is infinitely better than waiting for reports about them to start coming through.
the earth sun is hotter than back home, so sam has to shield his flora buds and skin from its rays when he goes out. he’s taken to carrying around an “umbrella.” he visits flower shops and is surprised by how many plants are killed for simple display purposes. it’s…shocking. but he notes all the different variants and notes how much stronger these smell than his homeworld flowers. he visits fields, and zoos, and aquariums, and travels earth. all the smells are so much; he loves it.
when sam meets steve, it’s in the human city of washington dc; he’s visiting the botanic garden. steve flirts with him, and sam tries to flirt back. it’s one of humanity’s stranger customs, but sam’s nothing if not adaptable. from the looks he’s receiving, he’s doing it right.
steve walks with him until sam declares that it is time for him to leave. he has to water his buds and eat. he gets a nod in return to his statement, and then steve offers him a ride to his residence. smiling, sam accepts the offer. there’s another human resting upon steve’s vehicle when they approach, and steve explains it’s his friend bucky. nodding, sam gets into the car.
sam keeps in contact with steve and bucky as he continues exploring earth’s gardens, using a cell phone. they’re less advanced than the multiple communications devices of home, but it works. he talks to steve in the mornings and bucky in the evening, and through the day he sends them pictures of the plants he sees with their names typed out underneath. bucky sends him pictures of poorly designed baked goods – bucky assures him despite their sloppiness they taste good – and steve sends him pictures of dogs. sam wonders where steve keeps getting them, but he doesn’t ask.
the next time he sees steve in person, steve gapes at him. his face also turns an alarming shade of red. confused, sam tells him it’s him. that gets an awkward laugh before steve tells him that he knew that, he’s just surprised because sam has flowers all over him. blinking, sam explains that his buds had bloomed shortly after he left washington dc and they’ll stay for about another earth month before the petals fall and his buds regenerate.
bucky, when sam sees him, grins at him and tells him his flowers are a good look. sam thanks him and lets bucky trail his fingers along a yellow petal. bucky grins in steve’s direction, but sam doesn’t understand why.
they take sam to dinner after he waters his flowers, a burger “joint” that bucky swears by. the food is messy to eat, but the drinks are fantastic. they talk and monopolize the table for what sam thinks is longer than polite, but he can’t help the smile on his face that stays the whole time.
as they’re walking back to steve’s vehicle, however, steve’s shoulder turn into an awkward hunch. bucky’s smile gets softer. sam doesn’t have a clue what happened. he hasn’t said anything or moved any differently.
steve “asks him out.” confused, sam tells him that he doesn’t know that human phrase. both steve and bucky let out huffs before bucky tries to explain that they’re asking if sam’s interested in dating them. sam says he thought they already were; he’s kept in contact near daily with them, and he’s let bucky touch his flowers.
