fist pump tuesday
Here’s what’s making me pump my fist this week:
1. Furt! — This has possibly been my favorite episode of Glee so far. I’m not exactly sure why, but I have several thoughts. First and foremost, I think the way they are handling the Kurt storyline is just simply fantastic. It could be so easy to take a storyline about a gay guy in a high school glee club and make it into something overdone and stereotypical. But I think the writers of Glee have done an admirable job of being gracious and classy. I was especially touched at the moment where Finn, whose discomfort with Kurt goes back to the first season, tells Kurt (now his stepbrother) that Kurt more than anyone has taught Finn what it means to be a man. Overall, this episode is sincerely wonderful. I might just have to watch it again!
2. Edible Pressies! — The Kitchn pulls through yet again with a fantastic list of edible holiday gifts (photo credit below to them as well). As all the gifts I’m giving this year can be eaten, this is incredibly helpful. As I type, I have a large pot of pear butter bubbling (and spitting like mad) on my stove, taking its merry time to reduce. Sigh. I might have to try some of these recipes also, in case the pear butter stays resistant and stubborn. (And just in case you were wondering, jam burns really, REALLY do hurt.)
All right, I can hear my pear butter going wild. We’ll cap it at two pumps this week.
