Putting together the questions to answer in the next Tea with Lili. Ask away! (I am much less of a holding-back-tears mess this week, thank goodness.)

Now I’m home and slowly absorbing my second quad shot of the day. It’s going to be a busy day.

A nice fat bee with a lovely fuzzy belly, they rested in my palm for a few steps, gathered themselves, and bumbled off. Lovely conversationalist, if a bit soft-voiced.

The first bee of the season was entangled in my hair during morning walkies. Dogs very patient while I untangled the visitor, gave said visitor a gentle talking-to, and released it.

Don’t make the same mistakes over again. Make new, exciting mistakes. Fuck things up in ways no one even thought possible

In which spring cannot be denied, this is not the week, and our vow is remembered.

My daughter used fancy-dancey vanilla paste for the filling, too. And her ganache game has really leveled up.

Dinner was homemade eclairs. Because I’m a goddamn adult.

(And let’s not even TALK about the racism, and the intersection between it and misogyny…)

Show thread

But why am I surprised? In the misogyny sweepstakes, Disney is in a class all their own. Princesses are only “good” if they’re self-abnegating, if their power ends up under the control of a male hero, or if they’re sexless.
