Oh, and I have a plan for moving the NOT YET FORGOTTEN project WTGF forward. I just don’t have the energy to work on it right now. It requires an almost complete re-write of something like 35K words, constituting more than half the sum total of words currently in the project.
I am considering moving my latest secret project from a sword and sorcery era to a pre-singularity SF era. I’m just not sure if the things I made this story for will work well in an era involving advanced technology.
On the other hand, I have no compelling reason for writing it in a sword and sorcery era. Particularly given that I’m not especially fond of such things.
we are not mortals
we are tragic demigods living a life
of confusion and pain
which will culminate in an explosion of light
I am, for the record, not drunk. But it was still enough to risk oversleeping. I don’t need the help since I’m so tired I barely made it home (slight exaggeration).
I should not be awake right now. I should have slept as soon as I got home.
I should definitely not have watched a bunch of episodes (defined as more than 1 but less than 4) of Bob’s Burgers. I probably should not have had that brandy (but it was better than drinking the fairly large beer I’d planned to drink).
Now I’m sweating my ass off.
What if there were a simple and cheap way to keep kids out of detention and from eventually heading down the wrong path? This school seems to have figured it out, and it’s kinda genius.
Holy shit. Teachers were using police as a first resort?!
Our high school does this and has found it to be extremely effective. We are currently trying to start implementing something like this in our middle school.
Help save a 16 year-old trans girl of color from being put in a mens adult prison with NO crimes charged on her by emailing Commissioner Katz.
She has never been convicted of a crime but they want to move her to near isolation in an adult mens prison. This CANNOT happen. Here is a more in depth article: http://feministing.com/2014/04/14/how-the-connecticut-department-of-children-families-is-failing-a-trans-girl-of-color/
I put together an email for Commissioner Katz, so all you have to do is copy and paste it. Click here for the example email
Please reblog to raise awareness!
The NYPD tried to start a hashtag outpouring of positive memories with their police force.
If this were ever a bad idea, it was probably the worst idea for arguably the most corrupt police force in America.
What the person running the Twitter account probably failed to realize is that most people’s interactions with the cops fall into a few categories:
1. You are talking to them to get help after you or someone you knew was robbed, beaten, murdered, or sexually assaulted.
2. You are getting arrested.
3. You are getting beaten by the police.
In category 1, you are probably not going to be like, “Oh, let me take a selfie with you fine officers so I can remember this moment,” and the other two categories are not things that the NYPD would like people on social media talking about. Additionally, the people who use Twitter a lot (and who aren’t Sonic the Hedgehog roleplayers) are the type who love fucking with authority figures. In any case, #myNYPD quickly became a trending topic in the United States, largely because people were tweeting and retweeting horrific images of police brutality perpetrated by New York City cops.
In which the NYPD’s attempt at “public relations” backfires tremendously.
this had me dying of laughter
What I don’t know about properly cutting vegetables would probably be close to everything but why are they intentionally ruining that carrot on the tumblr radar? You can’t properly cook unevenly sized vegetables and fuck me if I’m going to put chunks of carrot that size on a salad or try to pass off that awkward nugget as dipping carrots or something.
Well, I did successfully figure out where I was in Bob’s Burgers and watched a bunch of episodes (like three but whatever).
