“It’s not real pasta,” says D. Summoning all her contempt, “it’s store bought.”

So apparently I have to start planting wheat; unsure where to go when she starts feeling entitled to that as well.

Fucking Pauline Hanson actively dehumanises people and diligently prepares the ground for stochastic terrorist attacks, but it’s the angry Left who say ‘fuck’ who are the problem.

Very slow cooked lamb shanks and barley stew, with a passion fruit honey whisky sour.
