Another black woman making history

The roller derby world is all a-flutter for Erin Jackson, a skater out of Florida(she skates with the Jacksonville league) who’s become the first black woman to make a US Olympic long-track speed skating team. Here’s an interview with her , and it’ll autoplay to the race where she earned her spot on the team. Woohoo!

Steubenville Update 

If you don’t want to know any updates about any of the football players involved in the Steubenville rape case, this is your warning to not read. . .

Today's Reminder (an article)

Just read this a few minutes ago, and it’s dead-on about trying to appeal to #dolt45's followers. They don’t care about being fair, or about not being hypocritical, it’s about “winning”. Adjust accordingly.

ZOMG that "presidential" interview ZOMG that "presidential" interview

I didn’t watch the interview with Clownstick von Fuckface last night, but I searched for it this morning because I kept hearing how whackadoodle it was. Side note: it wasn’t very easy to find online. I had to do a very specific search of the date and David Muir to get a workable link. What. The. FUUUUUUUUCK. …

How Would You Confront This Work Situation

So I was supposed to be on an unpaid hiatus for last week and this week at work. I was asked before going on hiatus by the assistant manager who handles scheduling, etc. if I wanted to work through it instead. I said that I’d need Thanksgiving week off, but would come a week early. They then said that since I’d only…

Alexis Arquette, RIP

More proof this year can go fuck itself:

Surrogate sues biofather over abortion request

Have you guys seen anything on this story yet? I just read about it today.

Stories from the First Legal Abortion Doctors in the US

Found this article today and thought it very thought-provoking, and scary as fuck if forced-birthers got their way.

Who in Los Angeles saw Bernie last night?!

Here’s some photos from Bernie Sanders’ appearance at the LA Sports Arena last night. A really good, positive energy overall, even though getting in and out of the Sports Arena was a clusterfuck. I don’t think the venue knew what they were getting into!

#feeltheBern Los Angeles

Yesterday I found out Bernie Sanders is coming to Los Angeles! Next Monday! At the Sports Arena! I’M SO EXCITED! The time is mildly inconvenient, as is the location, but I RSVP’d just in case I can finangle my way out of work early enough to go there. I’ll even pay the outrageous parking rate just to see this guy.

Liberty vs. Freedom

I came across this interesting article on the internets earlier today, and I thought I’d throw it out for your perusal just for the heck of it. And to see if that approach would actually work in terms of trying to stop the idiocy that is the current GOP in the US.

NOPE NOPE NOPE

This is an upsetting story out of Dallas, TX featuring rape and attempted miscarriage. Peruse at your discretion. I’m afraid we’re going to see more stories like this as Texas’ continuing bullshittery against women and women’s health clinics continue.

The Mashup You Never Knew You Wanted

Are you a fan of 50 Shades of Grey and Bob’s Burgers? Or at least a fan of Bob’s Burgers? If you answered “yes” to either of the above, here’s a clip that will amuse the hell out of you. NSFW, as the subject matter is about the sexual contract in 50 Shades of Grey. ENJOY.

Hitting all the right (wrong) buttons

I guess a TW belongs in here for child abandonment, rape, and general assholery.

Slow on the uptake in TV land Slow on the uptake in TV land

I don't watch a lot of television series except for RuPaul's Drag Race, @midnight and Larry Wilmore's new show as well as TCM, so I miss a lot of stuff. The last jetplane trip I took, the onboard entertainment had the first four episodes of Cinemax's The Knick.

It's Happening! I'm traveling! It's Happening! I'm traveling!

This past week I've spent buried in receipts to get everything organized to visit the tax accountant. Now that that's done, I can now concentrate on my upcoming trip to Dubai, and I'm leaving tomorrow. SO EXCITED.

ZOMG ants

For the past six months or so, I haven't used the dishwasher. The husband and I have been washing our dishes by hand and then throwing the dishwater into the backyard as an attempt to "water" the yard because DROUGHT. About five days ago we finally ran our dishwasher, and since then we've have an ant problem in the…

Oh, Internet!

Not that I'm a big fan of Raw Story, but apparently Neil DeGrasse Tyson pissed off a bunch of insecure idiots on the internets on Xmas.

Today's musical groove Today's musical groove

I've never been a big fan of Bowie's Young Americans album(I hate the title track with a passion!), but lately have rediscovered how damn good the two tracks from that album that he did with Luther Vandross. Enjoy, won't you?
