Commie Girl: "Pastry Crust Is a Bitch"
Rebecca Schoenkopf, aka Commie Girl, tried her hand at making pies recently on FourStory and found, in the process, an American idyll. Balking at the $7 price of store-bought pies (attention, Trader Joe's), Schoenkopf did the unthinkable and attempted to make one from scratch. In her quasi-fake-diary, she sets out impossible standards:
"I probably spent $6.99 on this motherfucking pie anyway, between the organic apples and the Crisco. It had better be delicious."
An old Patty Griffin song, swipes at the National Review,
feminist contradictions and a recurring terror of the authoress'
unemployment produce a freebase of thoughts, exclamations and
revelries. ("I am a woman of limited skills, and any prospective
employers will find a load of websites with the word motherfucking attached to my name.") Worth looking into for the baker and satirist alike.
