One of my dad’s favorite songs. I love my dad!

Oh my friggin’ gosh! This is…this is… wow.

My husband’s old Latin prof, Tom Winter, is cited here. He is well know on the Intertubes as the skateboarding professor.

And a book not on the list, The People Could Fly by Virginia Hamilton.

“Cool, I always wanted to be a car salesmen. Maybe when I retire I’ll settle down and just work on selling that Buick I’ve had in my head for years.”

Bill Watterson drew a few strips of Pearls before Swine. I kind of wish I still subscribed to a physical newspaper! So sorry to have missed it when it was fresh.

Thought about Terror Fabulous’ song “Action” today because of I thought about one of my oldest sisters (who signs as “Sister #3). She loved the song “Action" and loved dance hall in general.

Funniest interview I’ve ever watched. Here’s hoping you get better, Mr. Morgan.

Things That Have Crossed My Mind This Friday Night Since I can’t Go Out Clubbing Like I Did Ten Years Ago

  • You ever think, while eating one of your favorite foods, that the person who owns the company hates black people or gay people or transgender people or women? Then, while eating them, you think if it’s true—if the owner is filled with hate—you wouldn’t be able to, in good conscious—eat that food again? It’s happened before with pasta and beans and jelly beans. Here’s the deal, corporation: all the haters of junk food and bad carb food, come out now so that I can stop eating you and maybe lose some weight.
  • If your husband starts putting the liquor and wine out of your reach, it may be time to admit you should consider your liquor and wine intake. My husband has not done this, but the thought crossed my mind when I couldn’t quite reach a shot glass.
  • Why do so many people in central Massachusetts have a swimming pool? It can’t be that warm here every year, right? You probably get thirty days of use out of it a year tops, right?
  • Colds suck rocks.
  • I should probably be writing fiction. Or a poem.

It’s really not okay.

Maybe you’ve just started to pursue a higher education. Maybe you’ve spent your adult life paying off debt from school. Either way, you’ve probably got questions about why college costs so much, what can be done about it, and if it’s even worth doing in the first place.
You should ask those questions to the President of the United States.
On Tuesday, June 10, our Founder/CEO, David, will head down to Washington to host a live conversation about education with President Obama. David will ask your questions. The President will answer them, out of his mouth, in front of the world.
(The White House will also be picking out a few question-askers to join us in person. If having the President’s ear isn’t enough, maybe standing on his carpet is.)
Submit your questions by midnight on Sunday, June 8. Then tune in to the White House Tumblr on Tuesday, June 10. See you in DC!

This fall, New York City becomes the first city in the nation to tackle the issue of girls’ self-esteem and body image. Recognizing that girls as young as 6 and 7 are struggling with body image and self-esteem, (over 80% of 10-year-old girls are afraid of being fat and by middle school, 40-70% of girls are dissatisfied with two or more parts of their body), New York City is launching a self-esteem initiative to help girls believe their value comes from their character, skills, and attributes – not appearance. 

HOLY SHIT DISABILITY REPRESENTATION IN A MAINSTREAM BODY ACCEPTANCE CAMPAIGN

and girls of color!

yo this was thought up by a bunch of middle schoolers and teenagers with Brave Girls Alliance and SPARK IT GETS COOLER

I’ve given up on conventional meds for this cold. Now it’s just organic malbec and vegan marshmallows.
