happy fat tuesday on women's day
Still very happy about yesterday's wonderful news (of course) - and thrilled over all the kind and touching comments, gosh...
Today though, there's a happy coincidence - or unfortunate if one happens to be a person who feels awkward with the words "fat" and "woman" in the same sentence, myself I couldn't care less, a reasonable amount of fat is essential - with Fat Tuesday and International Women's Day coinciding on this March 8, 2011.
First of all, I find it indeed heartbreaking that in the 21st century gender (and fellow beings) equality hasn't in general come further than this. That there's even a need for a special day to observe women's struggles and achievements, that's tragic. Since every day, every week, every month, every year should of course be equal, for all. No matter gender, no matter species.
Second of all, on a lighter note, I'm very pleased that I will in a little while be feasting on my favourite semla (the Swedish lenten bun ), the Stockholm Super Semla - and no I don't mean the semla amigurumi style, even if I'm rather pleased with those, I mean the cardamom bun, almond paste, whipped cream delight to devour - and yes, there may be whipped cream enough to share with cream loving kitties.
