Finally Figured out how to Change This Title

We got Harry on May 27th, and by the next day, he was dying.

He wasn’t eating. He wasn’t drinking. He wasn’t doing anything but coughing, gagging, and vomiting. We called BluePearl, an animal ER, and were told to bring him in immediately. They diagnosed him with severe infectious pneumonia,…

a little girl who knows what she wants

yesterday on the subway I sat next to a mom and her little girl was next to her. They were visiting from out of town. The daughter was quite lively, and charming. Her mother kept kissing her on her head, it was funny, like she couldn’t help herself. 

At one point the girl said “Mommy, when we come back, can we go to the lego place so I can build my own car?” and of course the mom said, “yes”

I thought, how wonderful a girl can say that nowadays without anyone batting an eye. (When I was a kid I preferred playing with cars over dolls. I did both since the sister I played with most was into the latter - we tended to put them into… funny scenarios. I was lucky in that no one in my family made a big deal about it, however I grew up in a time where in general I was a rarity.)

Then the same girl said “Mommy, when you get married, can I take the rose petals and throw them around as I walk down the aisle?” and standing up, she laughed with delight as she mimed the scenario. She was really “girly” about it, and again, it made me happy that this child could express what she wanted in whatever way without worry.

Cute kid.

million-stories-white-privilege:

The ultimate in white privilege is a white person using the N word. That epithet has been used to inflict more harm, pain and terror than we could ever fathom. If you knew how that word has been used throughout history you wouldn’t ever think it much less defend or debate your right to use it as a white person.

There just isn’t any excuse. You can’t use it as a white person.

And for those claiming somehow Hanna’s first amendment rights are being trampled.
1) Syracuse is a private institution not a government body. The first amendment protects one from having their speech suppressed by the government
2) Freedom of speech affords you the right to say stupid stuff, not the freedom of consequences arising from your having said stupid stuff.

remembering and forgetting

Kindnesses I remember, and the people who show them to me. I hold them close to my heart.

The others, those who are rude, careless, thoughtless and sometimes cruel, fade over time until it’s as if I never knew them at all. Some try to come back around, and I admit I do tend to give second chances. I don’t give third chances.

reminds me of that saying “fuck me once, shame on you, fuck me twice, shame on me” - fuck me a third time, what? bugger off, no way, not gonna happen

anyway I get too hung up on that shit. Letting go of people in the physical sense is easier than banishing their ghosts.

Ferguson is deliberately violating both the laws and its own policies to prevent any information from being produced and made public that could be used to hold Officer Wilson to account for his actions.

Racism? Do you think it might be racism? Hmm. Maaaaaaybe?

Wait yes it’s the deeply ingrained systemic racism of our nation rearing it’s ugly and, let’s face it, ever present head.

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

Exactly! This is evil.

Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

This dude was cosplaying.

He was dressed up in a costume.

Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

IT GOT BETTER

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.
