Re: Random natterings

I learned it as "scahnn" from my not-really-Scottish-but-her-granny-was Mom. "Scohne" seems to be Americanish.

Re: [SAFESPACE] Woman Thread - All Things Women. Period.

There are actual Canadians in actual Canada who thought having a Trump tower was a good idea. That's the embarrassing part.

(Yes, the Trumpsterfire has fans up here, too. I can't even.)

Is 18% called heavy cream here? ... Nope. According to this, it's "light cream".

Also, TIL that clotted cream taste almost like butter because it IS damn near butter. (60% for those who don't click on links.)

Re: [SAFESPACE] Woman Thread - All Things Women. Period.

A friend of mine did. I think Vancouver hit 15k people. They started from the Olympic plaza and marched to the Trump tower some blocks away. Friend went with the community choir that she joined just this year.

I'm still embarrassed and irritated that we even have a Trump tower.

If one receives imaginary internet points for creating a comic thread, then yes, it would be an imaginary hat trick.
