Gigi's mother passed away today. Please, please, please do what you can to support her. You have no idea how much even a comment would mean.
You can still e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org with your condolences.
Gigi's mother overdosed today and stopped breathing. She is in the hospital, in a coma. Her chances of survival are low and she will have brain damage if she comes out of the coma.
Obviously if you can send Gigi any messages of support she would greatly appreciate that. You can e-mail her at email@example.com. She currently cannot be reached by phone.
If you are so inclined please pray or send good thoughts in her direction. I am sure that she would appreciate that as well. Thank you.
This year may be the best one yet .
I can't wait to find out.
I snagged them from The Berry

Cannot remember if I have driven through Iowa.
It's a pretty good read. I will be honest and say I excepted...more . I wanted it to have more pop references that I knew and I wish it could have been longer. It's more a quick basic jaunt through the basics. Which is fine. I think if it actually was as long as I wanted it to be it would have been a hard read. Its the kind of book you get assigned in a college course and so the writing can be a bit dry at times. At least for me it felt that way. I'm sure much more educated/ smarter people have read harder books or are used to this kind of style and would find it a breeze.( photos of moi et PierreCollapse )
I just finished last nights episode and loved it as always. I will write a full I love Parks and Rec post later today as its 2:12 am and i should get some sleep. Should being the operative word but what will most likely happen is I'll comb the interwebs for Parks and Rec gifs. Or Dr. Who ones. All I know is gifs tend to be involved.
To show how much i love you all here's a drunk Ron Swanson in a little hat. Yes I really do love you guys a lot.
Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.
Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.
Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.
What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.
The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.
So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.
If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.
What to do?
- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.
- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.
- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.
- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.
I don't live in Mississippi; however, this law affects me as both an American, and as a woman. We cannot allow this law to set such a dangerous precedent. So, if you live in the state of Mississippi, vote no on this. If you're not in the state, please help spread the word.
