Bi-regional household: Navarro wine from Mendocino in Cherry Republic glasses. Quick update on the wine country post I made in November: According to their Facebook page, @navarrovineyards grapes had all been picked the day before the “Wine Country Fires” in Northern California this autumn, but many other wineries and their crops were damaged or destroyed. Part of the recovery efforts for Mendocino County include getting the tourists back, and Mendo in December is pretty magical, if I do say so myself. Just not like the Banana Republic ad (maybe we’ll discuss that mess of a campaign in another post). You can also contribute to the community fund (links in comments). .

From my story a couple days ago! Some of my recipes are going to be published in a charity Yuri!!! on Ice zine called Eat Skate Love and I decided to get festive with an Eros-inspired manicure. I’ve been reading about “femme flagging” or manicure flagging (a nail polish equivalent of hanky code), but many of the designs I see are artistic and open to the interpretation of the wearer, so it’s not always that simple as “this color in this pocket means—.” I decided this one (blood red, black, black with sparkles, gray, and black) was “into helping you find your true Eros.” My right hand is “looking for gold [medals].” 🥇This has been your very queer and meta Wednesday morning.⛸🍾 More on the actual recipes and art to come!

Reminder to call your senators, text Resistbot, and call the FCC about #netneutrality today. Ending neutrality would greatly impact the work of marginalized folks and activists, restrict access to information on LGBTQ issues and reproductive health; harm small businesses, schools, and NPOs; and harm rural communities and folks who have lower incomes. As a queer independent writer, this would greatly affect my work and your ability to read it and support me, and I’m not alone.

Resistbot: text RESIST to 504-09

My partner and I, in unison: :Will Graham voice: one of these things is not like the other ones. One of these things just doesn’t belong. 👀👀🌈
Gotta love/loathe that late-capitalism homonormativity pandering so we can spend our #cashdollas on wedding registries at your store, amirite?

#bestnine2017:
These really mean a lot to me. The first image of some prime #alfresco dining was the night my partner and I cracked open a bottle of wine from my hometown that I had been saving for a specific special occasion that I FINALLY got to celebrate. The second is from the meal I had with my volunteer scholarship committee when we selected the winners of an award for Pride Foundation. Several of these are from our launch of The Corners of Their Mouth, @robin_elan‘s and my queer food zine, and two events where we sold them: @geekgirlcon and @death_rattle_writers_fest. The JET program, where Robin and I met, celebrated 30 years of cultural exchange. I also got to go to my local @seattlefarmersmkts, grew a new kind of strawberry this year, and returned to Denver (and its new @voodoodoughnutmilehigh) this year. Along the way, I got to meet you all. 2017 was a great year for personal and professional growth but it has been a political shitshow and a major backslide for civil rights, things that, for me, overshadow anything else good that has happened. We can’t afford to not be political when every aspect of our lives—and deaths—are politicized. Here’s to fighting harder and better in 2018 against food inequity, the cisheteropatriarchy, the gender binary, white supremacy, unfair labor practices, a bullshit healthcare system, abusing femme labor, and gun violence. 2017, I will not miss you.

Meanwhile, Craig and Mullins v. Masterpiece Cakeshop is happening, and the decision will either support anti-discrimination measures or allow folks to continue to discriminate against LGBTQIA folks and other marginalized groups because we offend their delicate sensibilities and “religious rights” by existing, but you know they’re all wearing cotton-poly blends, eating shellfish, having period sex, and generally offending Brown socialist Jesus, so give them hell, @lambdalegal @aclu_nationwide 🖕🏼🖕🏼🎂🌈👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩💏👨‍❤️‍💋‍👨 https://www.aclu.org/legal-document/craig-and-mullins-v-masterpiece-cakeshop-amicus-brief-lambda-legal

Got to flip through the 1953 version of Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook and I think this is my favorite image: checking to see if your rolls have risen sufficiently by poking them with your middle finger, which is pretty much how I felt about gender performance in the illustrations. Dinner rolls, not gender roles?🖕🏼🍞

“You’re just a bee charmer, Idgie Threadgoode.” So did anyone else’s mom/aunties/gran love Fried Green Tomatoes the movie and then were surprised to find out that Idgie and Ruth were a couple? Anyway, I love it when you all have fun with my “who’s the A and who’s the B in your relationship” jokes, because I love turning the table on that straight bullshit. Here’s to all you suspenders-wearing bee-charmers and badass bi femme chefs out there—enjoy your (cough cough) “food fights”!
