My food groups are cheese, bacon, and hot tea. I like studying cities and playing with my cat, Buffy.

One thought on “Dispatches from Ladyblogland”

  1. You must excuse me for ugly laughing all the way through the ‘I’m a feminist’ now piece. Its better than rage crying.

    As for stress reading, I used to be a stress reader and a stress starver — nothing like escaping into a ya novel and forgetting to eat when there are problems to be solved. Getting older, I’ve discovered that now I’m a mindless stress tv watcher and a stress muncher — I think I prefered my earlier coping mechanisms.
