    Cringe. At least Amy isn’t hiding how much she hates conservative women, excuse me, the uneducated boobs who voted for that bumpkin Youngkin.

    • jadzia1971 says:

      She can kiss this CEWW’s behind. That is all.

    • Miranda says:

      Keep looking down on them, Amy. That’ll do it. ::eyeroll::

    • AniEm says:

      So Siskind has publicly acknowledged her own bigotry against anyone who is white, female, undereducated, and Virginian. Interesting. The women of VA voted for a multi-racial slate which should be viewed as a win-win for identity politics. SIskind needs to have a good long look at her own narrow and elitist little mind (if she can find it) as well as her intention to violate the voting choices of :”others”.

    • lyn5 says:

      CNN interviewed five Democrat women who voted for Youngkin. Amy needs to reflect on her broad-brush of bigotry.

      • DeniseVB says:

        There were pockets of PTA moms around the state mentioning this was the first Republican ticket they voted for, ever! I think those are the women she’s mad at and trying to get them back on the plantation. Since Sarah Palin, we know feminists are definitely not for ALL women.

    • 1539days says:

      Well, it makes sense if they didn’t vote for the black Lt. Gov…oh, wait.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Is this not also racist? I imagine quite a “non white” women voted against Amy’s idol McAwful. Or is it just easier for her as it’s open season white hicks as defined by the SJW manual.

    Silly Monday question- What is the “proper way” to eat a banana? Do you peel it as you go? Peel it all at once and hold the peeled banana in your hand and eat it? Or put the peeled banana on a plate and eat it with a knife and fork?

    Several years ago I was taking a medication that wreaked havoc with my potassium levels. The doctor recommended I either take potassium citrate pills or eat a banana every other day. Lots of foods are high in potassium, but “a banana” is an easily measured amount. I chose the banana, and while I liked just eating a plain old banana, I developed a taste for them lots of ways. In my cereal, with peanut butter, and especially with ice cream. It’s been a long time since I’ve taken that medication, but the taste for bananas has stayed. The real thing. I think banana flavored stuff is gross. I no longer worry about keeping a schedule, but I buy a lot of bananas. How one should eat a banana came up the other day so I’m curious how other people eat bananas.

    • Mothy67 says:

      Peel half way down to “open” then as you go. I eat one every other day in cereal too.

    • Mothy67 says:

      I’m in moderation?
      Peel as you.go
      Knife and fork is some cray cray commie shit

    • Woke Lola says:

      Peeled and broken up into a smoothie with Vitamin D, Matcha, greek yogurt, frozen berries, spinach, chia seeds, pecans, and oatmeal. It’s my morning go to.

    • Cisco says:

      I peel and eat as I go.
      Knife & fork,??
      Come on man!
      I had a uncle who was rather fastidious, I guess.
      On occasion I’d have breakfast with him.
      Couple of sunny side up eggs, toast, but eggs always on a plate w/a knife & fork and a real cloth napkin.
      He played the tenor sax.
      To this day I still eat sunny side up eggs or easy over.
      Scrambled? A travesty, unless it’s a omelet.
      Thanks Uncle “*****”
      60 years later, still eating them like that.
      Um, paper napkins tho.

    • DeniseVB says:

      All at once, over a trash can so I don’t have to deal with the peel later.

    • Miranda says:

      I peel the whole banana and eat it by hand off a plate. I like to eat it as a side to a peanut butter sandwich…bite of sandwich and bite of banana. Putting the banana on the sandwich made me lose parts of the banana.

    • elliesmom says:

      The reason why I’m asking is I often put a banana in my pocket when I go for a longer walk with Ellie. It doesn’t require any wrapping to keep it from soiling my pocket. Ellie doesn’t like them so she’s satisfied to just eat her treat and let me have mine. Yesterday I met a friend along the way, and I offered her half of the banana. Whichever half she preferred, the unpeeled or the half remaining in the peel. She told me she only eats any kind of fruit, but especially bananas, with a knife and fork. To eat fruit out of her hand was too “animalistic”. I laughed and ate the banana “peel as you go” wondering what she might think if I spit out watermelon seeds. But then I was reading Althouse’s blog, and I saw she said the proper way to eat a banana is with a knife and fork. I thought that was kind of prissy, but Ann is prissy. If I hadn’t heard it twice in the same day, it would have made no impression on me. Now excuse me while I eat my asparagus with my fingers. 😉

      • Somebody says:

        Peel as you go. Knife and fork? Get outta here.

        Same question goes along with fried chicken. Pick up the piece of chicken with your hands and eat it, or use a knife and fork?

        • Miranda says:

          Hands if it’s a drumstick or wing. Probably knife/fork for a breast. I went to a fancy awards banquet where they served ribs. I tried to eat them with a knife and fork, but ended up getting a sandwich when I got home.

        • elliesmom says:

          In an informal setting, like friends and family, chicken is eaten with a fork and fingers. It’s fine to pick up the wings or a drumstick, but you should probably use a fork to pull some of the meat off the breast before cleaning the carcass with your teeth. At a formal meal, it’s knife and fork all the way. My Scout troop went through a class with a business consultant on what to do at your job or college interview, and she included what to do if it includes a meal. While she covered things like how to eat fried chicken, her advice was not to order any meat on a bone. lol

          My husband’s British boss was coming to dinner for the first time, and he called me to ask if he could bring the wine. He also politely asked if I might be making fried chicken as he was hoping for “an American experience”. I told him if he was prepared to become friends and family, I would be happy to serve him fried chicken with lots of napkins. He should also nix the wine and bring a sixpack. After we returned to Boston from Chicago, he visited us for dinner there. That time I made him steamers and lobster, another meal where fingers and lots of napkins are necessary, but that time I let him bring me a nice bottle of Chardonay. 🙂

        This is how our betters can identify us rubes, because we eat our bananas like common apes.

    • lateblum says:

      Peel as I go unless I’m cutting it up and putting it into something else.

    • Dora says:

      I always peel it as I go.

      I’ve never heard of eating a banana with a knife and fork. 🙂

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Finger food sliced on a plate with berries and perhaps kiwi or peach in season for a nice morning snack while I start work. Or sliced on top of peanut butter/Nutella on cinnamon raisin toast.

      The only banana flavored food I like is banana bread.

    I am now FREAKING OUT waiting for my newly minted middle schooler to get home because she rode her bike and this is the first non-daylight savings day that she did that. It is WAY darker WAY earlier than i realized. She is with her brother who is taller than I am so it’s not concern about criminals (plus the bike path is incredibly busy during rush hours, so “personal safety” isn’t the issue), I’m just worried about the one busy road they have to cross.

    In unrelated news, she is banned from riding her bike to school until the LED vest and funky bike wheel lights I just ordered arrive from Amazon. Supposedly that will be tomorrow.

  11. jadzia1971 says:

    I wish I could edit my last post. So we went to the sporting goods store this morning to buy a bike for my OTHER daughter (her bike seat can’t go any higher and STILL she is basically banging herself in the chin with her knees when she’s bicycling), and we were not treated very well. Like the guy LOOKED STRAIGHT AT ME and ignored me, walked away while I was (politely) trying to ask him a question, continued to ignore me when I followed him to get his attention, and then lied to the H man about something being in stock. And we were buying stuff that was pretty expensive. And we were pretty much the only people in the store because who buys sporting goods on a Monday morning?

    Normally I don’t like to think that I’m being singled out because of my accent or H because he ‘doesn’t look French’ (if you know what I mean), but this was way worse than the usual French shitty service.

    So I went online to find the thing that was out of stock (one of those racks that you can put the kid’s backpack on) and LO AND BEHOLD they had FIVE OF THEM in stock AT THE VERY STORE we had been at a few hours earlier. I put in my order for click-and-collect and sent H back to pick them up.

    45 minutes later, I get an extremely apologetic email from the store manager (I hadn’t even complained!) and a credit for more than half of the thing that I had ordered from click and collect.

    And now I think that the guy we encountered this morning was DEFINITELY being xenophobic or worse.

  12. DeniseVB says:

    Hopefully they told her to turn the sweatshirt inside out and let her get back to the game ?

    • elliesmom says:

      Thank you for the heads. Thanks to daylight savings time I will not even have to set an alarm. Of course, it will probably be cloudy and rain. 🙂

        Or watch it on TV. Actually, I’d rather watch from a hotel room than on the street because you have bathroom access:)
        They’re paying some huge bucks for that hotel room too. We looked into doing that years ago. I hate to think what it costs now.

    • Miranda says:

      At what point are they going to decide to live their lives? I hate to inform them, but the grandparents are going to die of something, sometime, and would probably like to hug their grandkids. Besides, if they’re *really* worried about it, get a covid test.

      • lateblum says:

        I’m unvaxxed. I have had Covid tests whenever there has been a family gathering so that if I were positive, I’d not expose anyone to the virus. I have never tested positive (thank goodness). I take care of where I go, who I spend any time with, take the EVMS protocol religiously (Thank you Somebody, et al.) yesterday my invitation to family Thanksgiving dinner was rescinded. My dil emailed me suggesting that I come the Friday afterward for leftovers. While I am perfectly okay doing that, I’m not okay with her telling me that “some people are uncomfortable with my decision” she went on to say that although “everyone in the family are or will be vaccinated by then” and “they can still carry the virus and can still spread the virus so they are trying to protect” me.
        Frankly, I could easily have done without that last part.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I have not looked elsewhere as I have been busy but according to the online community they (mostly moms) are marching even 5 year olds to the vaccination tents here in the swamp. And bragging how excited the children are to be part of the solution. But nope, no visiting gram and gramps at the retirement village. Cooties.

      • lateblum says:

        I just read an explanation . . . Apparently when the bridges were built, the only people who had autos were “rich, white men”. So the man, Robert Barnes, designed the bridges only large enough to accommodate the autos and not the buses that the poorer people rode to get to the beaches.
        TBH, I didn’t look for corroboration anywhere, so I could have just shared misinformation. If that is the case, I apologize.

      if it was NY, were those bridges built before autos? asking for a friend

    can not hurt

  28. helenk3 says:

    random thought

    over the years the dems when in power, sent our manufacturing to overseas, much of it to China. Also pharmaceuticals and other things. Just took away our energy independence and is begging Arab countries to help us. little by little they have taken away our independence. If this were the revolutionary war times, they would be considered tories who did not want American independence.

    60 Seconds of Serenity (#605): Each day I am sharing 60 seconds of nature to help “take the edge off” during these stressful times. Glow from the flame, glow from the foliage—Eternal Flame Falls in Orchard Park, NY (Erie County) was absolutely stunning early this morning. Natural gas seeps through the Rhinestreet Shale here and the flame pretty much remains lit—though on occasion it does have to be re-lit. It was glowing beautifully when I arrived there early this morning.
