I’ve gotten, like, 17 emails about this and so am filing an Intent to Post

Rest easy, outraged blamer. I have indeed heard of the PETA porn site and will be dashing off the usual bromides and choir-preaches as soon as time permits. In the meantime feel free to compose your own and post it here. Back in a flash (and by “flash” I mean “day or two”).

Spinster aunt pleads for justice

It’s no secret that this is a happy-go-lucky blog run by a carefree, complaisant Internet feminist. This Internet feminist has bigger fish to fry and is not concerned in the slightest with the style of expression used by the mellow folks who leave comments. Oh, she might make a small suggestion or two, here and …

Spinster aunt begins to hallucinate. Now with seafood similes.

This vulture is always giving me the eye as I stagger around in the dust, looking for a refrigerator to crawl into. Maybe one of you science brainiacs knows whether this flippin heat wave is just a normal fluctuation in the Grand Climatronical Scheme, or whether it’s Al Gore’s nightmare come true. Either way, I …

Dude wins by default, plus Open Thread!

Why no post today? I’m trapped — temporarily, I hope — in an alternate universe where it is considered bad form to write blogs when there are other, more tedious things to do (such as evading jury duty, taking care of a sick horse, or spending hours on the phone trying, with a pesky history …

Spinster aunt: “white,” perhaps, but not white

A selection of hues from the skin of my left forearm. The next time I have to check a race box on some form, I’m gonna tick “other” and write in “aubergine.” UPDATE: I realize that this post may need a bit more explanation. Here is how I got these swatches. I took a photo …

Testing 1 2 3

UPDATE: Crisis resolved. Thanks, and carry on. ________________________ UPDATE: I think I found the open tag. Is it fixed? ________________________ There is a rumor going around that I broke the blog and everything is suddenly all in italics. I don’t see any untoward italics on my end, in either Firefox or Chrome. So if there …

More comments guidelines

Less of this: If you allowed opposing views you would learn that it is you who are the oppressor. — some banned knob And more of this: My ovaries jangle melodiously, like distant sleigh bells. — Antoinette Niebieszczanski That is all.

New message appears on Chain Link Oracle Dumpster

Today’s question is: when is bathroom humor runny? I mean funny? I ask because there is a vas deferens between when some jokey sexist dude uses bathroom humor to tell women to lighten up and enjoy their oppression, and when some jokey spinster blogger uses it to draw attention to bigotry. Ha! Ha ha ha! …

Announcement Korner

For the heartwarming nature crappists, I present the red swamp crawfish found beached at my low-water crossing the other day. No yella labs were injured during this photo shoot. Brief thoughts of étouffée, the ancestral diet of spinster aunts of yore. Meanwhile, there can never be a proper bloggy dustup without a mea culpa from …
