Alright so I’ve not really been connected to my fav people in a while, since I’ve spent the last week running around in the sun and getting sunburnt and callouses on my feet and destroying my liver.
Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t even left town.
But I want to know how my lovelies are doing.
I’m looking at you,
You are my favorites, babies.
Oh. I thought my ninjavitis answer was pretty good though?The only disease a ninja is susceptible to is SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER. And if you ever come over, I’ll make a batch of tomato country relish especially for you.
Necoho tagged me

Rule 5: Tag the person who tagged you.
Rule 6: It’s gonna be a vicious circle then, haha.
9. Beethoven or Mozart? Mozart. I love them both, but I love Mozart a little better.
Underrepresentation of PoC, though.
Zwarte Piet, the servant of Sinterklaas, is a racist depiction of a Moor, but bring the issue up in a conversation with the white Dutchy and they will go into denial mode about any problematics. “Oh, he only became black because he descended through a chimney”, well how do you, in the perspective of Dutch colonial history, explain the afro, earrings and big red lips, wankstain? Originally, the helper of Saint Nicholas was a Krampus or Percht. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pr…
Oh gracious, that is interesting, isn’t it. Most of continental Europe still struggles with the colonial history it so reveres. Now I know and can bring it up at the party tomorrow and look a historical genius and also help deter racism. Yay.
Thanks for explaining, darling.
Kruidnoten! Speculaas! Taaitaai! Any, ANY baked goods with speculaaskruiden in it! Presents! Surprises! Poems with clichéd and bad assonance! Racism!
WIKIPEDIA! It has ALL the answers!
Well, I’m definitely going to have to wikipedia those dutch words Necoho just threw at me. IT’S LIKE HE’S TRYING TO SPEAK TO ME, I JUST KNOW IT.
*looks up words*
Mixed spices, spiced cookies, shortbread cookies, and spice nut cookies? N’alright. I’m not going to find any of those things in my supermarket. I’ll just have to settle for bad poems and racism? I don’t understand the racism part, babe?
I’m going to a Sinterklaas party tomorrow evening, celebrating the Dutch way. Problem is, I know nothing about what Sinterklaas/dutch celebrations should look like? What are the traditions, is there a specific food I should make?
HELP ME, HOLLAND.
You’re very clever, Cara.
you are clever brilliant wise erudite smart intelligent brainy sagacious and beautiful!!
CHERI, MY BISCUIT, I LOVE YOU.
Is there peanut cheese, too? (;
…You made that up. It’s not real, is it??????
MOAR dutch food! There were like, 8 shelves, I only took two pics because the people who worked at the store gave me weird looks.
LOL!! tell them you’re doing some wacky research for a Dutch friend ;)
that’s jam, and way to the right is mustard - they just put all the stuff together higgledypiggledy, don’t they..
See previous post. Also, there was some like sauerkraut-looking jars to the left of the jam. No idea what that stuff was. It’s all in freaky-deaky-Dutch.
But it was a real trip. I thought of you and Necoho fondly.
Bit queer that the rose hip jam is where more ginger jam jars should be…
And I haven’t the foggiest why one would tag red cabbage with apple as a relish.
LOL, they are but uneducated Canadians who wish to share what Dutch food they can find, in whatever manner they can. There were shelves of the stuff. I only just took the two pics though.
