    On Wednesdays we smash the patriarchy.

    Ours is characteristically the kind of if-it-isn't-this-it-has-to-be-that, dichotomized, either/or thinking that philosophers from earlier times have cautioned can lead to a simplistic misreading of reality. And, indeed, psychologists today have discovered it is the mark of a lower or less psychologically evolved stage of cognitive and emotional development. - Riane Eisler

    Dang it, I missed the fun yesterday because I had to finalize that corporate takeover! And I was so looking forward to trying out my new inflatable smasher.

    I have no idea what any of you are talking about. I leave for a few minutes and come back to a totally different conversation.

    We were supposed to bring our own lunches? All I have is pie...

    All those hidden conversations - it's all so very confusing. I think every other day is bring your own patriarchy. You wouldn't happen to have any Boston cream pie?

    Duh, of course I have Boston Cream pie. Who doesn’t?

    I also have key lime pie ice cream sandwiches. Seriously. They’re amazing. The best of both worlds.

    Awesome! As long as they don't try and make you pay for smashing that glass ceiling! Stupid thing should never have been there in first place.

    Oh, yum. I was just thinking about peach cobbler the other day. Maybe I should make some. Plenty of peaches around these parts.

    Good morning, house of Friday the 13th!!

    So, what are you all doing today? Walking under ladders? Opening umbrellas in the house? Tossing salt over your shoulder? Crossing knives, watching for the black cat to cross your path?

    How superstitious are you people? Even if you're not superstitious, what little ritual do you do anyway? ('cos you'll feel uncomfortable if you don't.)

    More likely to be my swan song but everybody knows that real girls eat cake!

    I played the blackest of metals on my guitar for Friday the 13th.

    Not really...

    It was death metal.

    I dunno... I noticed it was Friday the 13th, but I haven't really done anything special today.
    To listen to my feeble attempts at music, go here! I'll be adding to it (hopefully) for all of February.

    I now have a blog.

    Gail, I’m not superstitious at all. Today my favorite tattoo salon is giving $13 piercings and $13 tattoos (very small ones). Since I already have enough tattooing to last a lifetimes (see what I did there?) I’m going to pass on this great deal. Besides, I hate crowds and long lines. And pain. I hate pain, too.

    Rob—I have yet to meet a cobbler. I’m sure there are some hiding here among the peaches, but I haven’t seen them.

    Yes! But I prefer mine by the ocean. I’d include the link to the song I’m referring to, but Swach did recently and I’m too lazy.

    The scientific theory is that if you had an infinite room full of swaches and typewriters, none of us would ever have to post anything again.
