Hey Friday! Did you know — and I’m almost positive that you did because you’re very astute — that it’s nearly impossible to proof bread on your countertop if your house is air conditioned to a chill 75°F? Did you further know that if you just keep on proofin’ ’til you get that rise, your poor bread will eventually just kind of give up on life and turn itself into a brick while you bake it? Both of these things are true facts, and I hope that learning them will magically make me a better bread baker. Maybe I’ll build a little sauna in my living room for my bread proofing needs. Maybe I’ll hover over my loaves and mouth-breathe on them for warmth like I’m Jacob Black. My bread destiny is only limited by my imagination and determination and the expiration date of my active dry yeast, I’m pretty sure. Feels true.
You Should Go or Do or Give
+ Ok I know I just referred to Twilight like two sentences ago, but this Bella has nothing to do with Twilight and is infinitely cooler than that Bella. So anyway: Help Bella! This little trans girl’s mom needs help taking her ex-husband to court for full custody because he refuses to acknowledge that Bella is a girl, instead subjecting her to cruelty and using his skewed religious views against her and her queer mom. This man seems like The Worst. Bella’s headband, on the other hand, is The Cutest.
Queer as in F*ck You
