Many people appreciate the humor of that photo, but really,that hausfrau
stuff is in fact part of my character and part of making my life good.
You'd be surprised that yesterday, between more glamorous pursuits, I
vanquished an ant infestation, fixed a gutter, cleaned the bathroom, then
cooked a full meal including peanut butter cookies for dessert? As Whitman
put it and I like to say: "I am large; I contain multitudes."

I am feeling some unease. I am not sure this kind of post belongs on this
list. It seems too personal. If anyone doesn't like it, I apologize. I'm
here to discuss ideas about values.

Its flaws are obvious, but it's a great quote anyway:
"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable man
persists to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on
the unreasonable." - George Bernard Shaw
