Chefgirl Right now I'm very surprised to have a file on my YouTube channel going viral due to its inclusion of Christine O'Donnell some twelve years ago.

Love Peter Serafinowicz has rightly gotten lots of attention for Sassy Trump but to see Peter himself, portraying Trump about a decade ago, have a gander at this clip from his BBC Sketch show:…

 Preview

Toxic Masculinity doesn't need a gun. This was sadly brought home to me in late June when a friend of mine lost her 21 year old son to that situation. He was snoozing after a bonfire/house party next to his brand new (two weeks) girlfriend at her place (they lived in the same apartment complex; one full of other college students); her ex showed up and someone let them in (there were several people there conked out on the furniture/floor), saw them, attacked my friend's son with a knife as he slept and killed him.
Jun 3 Chefgirl commented on High-Speed Police Chase on Aurora Predictably Ends With Crash.
Seems a pretty easy answer; if the occupants of the speeding car are suspected of a serious crime, a high speed police chase is warranted; if it's just someone speeding, the police call ahead to their comrades but do not endanger the public by giving chases.

Otherwise we have this: http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.c…

The young man killed in the story had just spent a day hiking with his fiancee, his brother, a few other friends and my sister. They had driven two cars there and back; my sister was in the second car, which came across the wreck of the first on the way home.

Here's Donald Trump giving a guided tour of his mansion back in 2007!…

OK, it's Peter Serafinowicz, a British comedian who is quite-rightly getting attention these days for overdubbing Trump's speeches. But he was already mocking Trump nearly a decade ago.

Not even a word that this brings Seattle's Adrian Latourelle back to town as this show's Reverend Jay? Have a look at The Stranger archives of shows at Annex Theatre in the very early 90s; Adrian starred in more than half of them before following his buddy Paul Giamatti back east to grad school at Yale. I did a few plays with Adrian back in high school and we all knew we were seeing the salad days of a young man who could swing it as a professional. Will look forward to seeing this show.

A good resource to pass along to the student is the YouTube channel My Genderation, based out of London but featuring blogs from young transgender people from around the world;…
Jun 19, 2015 Chefgirl commented on Asked and Answered: An Exclusive Interview with the "Why Does My Cat Smell Like Curry" People.
You didn't happen to COOK a curry recently, did you? Only asking because I never once caught my childhood cat, Dusty Miller, on a table our counter.

But there was a time I was mixing up some chicken filling to make b'stilla, which is heavy on tumeric and I may have briefly left the kitchen a few times to, say, retrieve the phyllo from the freezer, check my email, etc.

Later that night (having eat the b'stilla) we all noticed that Dusty Miller had one suspiciously yellow paw...
Apr 1, 2015 Chefgirl commented on Asian American Man Says Starbucks Employee Accused Him of Wanting to Steal Company Secrets to Take to China.
Worked for Starbucks through most of the 90s; the decisions from corporate were never thought out in how they'd actually work on the ground. One initiative that failed big time was when we got a big new product line of home espresso machines with a directive that if any customer wanted a demo of any machine, someone was required to give one immediately, without exception.

Even if there were only two people working, one on cash register, one on bar, the cash register person was required to drop it all to get the machine working and the barista would now be running back and forth, making drinks and ringing them up from his or her till which was at the "bean end" of the store, most likely (since sharing tills was forbidden).

They kept us doing this until a few of the secret shoppers, who had been instructed to request a lesson on a machine wrote their reviews and commented how awful they felt in creating a huge line of other customers at 7am,
