Hello everyone. I know its been a very long time since I have posted. I moved last month and do not have internt in my new place. Also , to be honest I haven't wanted to say anything for a long time. Even before my mother died. I ... felt disconnected to LJ. I hope that will change soon. I just wanted to say hello and thank you so, SO much for all your kind thoughts. It meant a lot to me.

Another sad post from usakeh:

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 i_love_books90@yahoo.com with your condolences.

Thank you.

This is usakeh. I am on the phone with Gigi right now. The news I'm about to tell you is not good.

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 i_love_books90@yahoo.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.

I'm a bit sad my beloved usakeh is going into the hospital today so here is a hedgehog in a bath gif spam I found on the tumblr Bunny Food. It makes me feel less glum and gives me the desire to splash about.

It's my birthday today and so far it's gone GREAT.  I am not doing anything today but tomorrow I am going to this wonderful Mexican restaurant and to a movie with my family.. It's going to be wonderful. I'm so happy and in such an amazing place right now. I think back to last year on this day and I am so proud of how much I have grown. I have amazing friends and am much closer and happier with my family.  I just wanted to take this time to tell everyone how much I love you all and how thankful I am that you are in my life. 

This year may be the best one yet . 
I can't wait to find out.

My mom came home yesterday and surprised me with the most adorable raccoon hat! I have named it as that's my thing. It's name is Pierre and he is a French Canadian from Quebec City. Or Montreal. That bit of his back story is unclear to me as of now. He is insanely snuggly and warm ; I spent this afternoon asleep with him on after I finished reading Feminism and Pop Culture by Andi Zesler.

  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 )

So I know I said I would do a Parks and Rec love post but I found something else to squee about. I know what you’re thinking: You found something more important than Ron Swanson?!

So I don't know if anyone knows this but I am truly madly deeply in love with the tv show Parks and Recreation. I love everything about it. It 's the only show on the air that combines my love of geeky goodness, feminism, waffles, and meat. Also Ron Fucking Swanson. 

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.

Originally posted by gabrielleabelle at Mississippi Personhood Amendment
Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

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.

Watching s6 of Xena. Its once againc ome to my attention that no one bleeds on this show. When Xena stabs an enemy or beats the shit out of them we rarely see blood. I noticed this happens a lot on tv shows like Xena such as Buffy and Angel.Maybe they show more gore I don't know I normally don't pay attention this is something that I've noticed off and on and forget to check up on..  I  noticed it in The Chronicles Of Narnia :The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe's huge battle scene first. Which ok Disney movie .. but still. IT was really blatant.  Not that I'm begging for more blood. I'm pretty squeamish 

OK XENA JUST STABBED A GUY THROUGH AND THROUGH AND HER SWORD IS SPOTLESS. 

Aww sad. The cannibal barbarian who kind of looked like Sid Vicious drowned . Well noit really sad so much as.. he looked like Sid and now he is drowned. 

Xena update!  ok so xena can stab a guy without there being any blood but she elbows a  hot  lesbian in the face and there's tons of blood? SRLY? EXPLAIN THE LAWS OF ANATOMY IN THE XENA'VERS PLEASE.
