Bake some zucchini bread and do work on yourself to be a better ally.
My friend requested a Cake Wreck-y sheet cake, and trying to convey intentionally bad decoration is surprisingly hard! Plus: my “EVE Talk” on eros and katsudon.
We can handle nettles by taking a page from Ivan Coyote and “cowboying down.”
A three-course Hannibal-inspired meal. “When Love was shown me with such terrors fraught/ As may not carelessly be spoken of.”
