"Immersion in the life of the world, a willingness to be inhabited by and to speak for others, including those beyond the realm of the human, these are the practices not just of the bodhisattva but of the writer." --Jane Hirshfield

Bitch Bitch Bitch

Bitch Book:
"When a man gives his opinion, he's a man; when a woman gives her opinion, she's a bitch." --Bette Davis
Bitch: What a woman gets called if she disappoints someone's expectations of perfect, enabling mommydom. Big Fat Bitch Book review.

Bitchin Doughnuts: That first cup of coffee is a big motivation for getting out of bed in the morning. But I try not to eat normal doughnuts for breakfast, much less the souped-up version: Caffeinated Doughnuts. Besides, I'd rather have that second cup.

The best part of bitchiness is knowing how to take it as well as dish it out, so I was pleased to read that author's statement about strong, outspoken bitchiness vs weak, manipulative envy-based bitchiness.Women still seem to have a hard time keeping friendships alive through times of honest arguement and disagreement, especially online when it can be hard to convey how much one is enjoying a discussion that may be full of disagreement and discord.
