a men's tea party


"but as the snow melted, these boys were happy to gather at nightwood’s woodworking studio near the brooklyn navy yard for strong, earthy teas and late-afternoon snacks ... " this editorial story which comes with a recipe for the green tea & raspberry cake from the SUNDAY's NEW YORK TIMES tickles my heart big time. featuring the lovely photography of SUSANNA HOWE, and amazing food & props styling. this is what life should be

Holy shit! Are you people kidding with this?!? And the other posters here, encouraging this....whatever it is.

And don't tell me I don't understand it, or you. No one in their right mind would or does.

People that laugh at you this way are not necessarily "old guys that just don't get it". There's nothing to get here. I know food, as well or better than most of you. But since when does it have to intersect with guys who's "style" looks like something from the mid-18th century? Knitting...and wood working?? What the fuck?!?!

How badly do you need attention? And if this is an attempt at irony, it's ridiculous, baseless one. And it doesn't mean it still isn't really an attempt at attention.

Do you want attention hipster fuck? Go cure cancer. "Men's Teaparties"? You couldn't even accomplish that, as there's not a single man amongst you. No, not even the guy knitting.
