Here’s the smug brat who scratched (and maybe bit?) me in 11 different places on my hand, including my nail bed, my palm (that’ll be fun for yoga tomorrow) the tip of my index finger (ouchy for typing) and right in between my fingers, all because she knew I was picking her up to put her in her carrier to go to the vet. 

I’m not badly hurt (still monitoring for infection, but I washed it again when I got to the vet with their antiseptic wash) but there was A LOT of blood and I wasn’t expecting it so I panicked a bit and when I panic, I cry. So, picture me, running my hand under cold water, sobbing, “Meta, you hurt me! I’m hurt,” over and over, while I try to figure out where all the blood is coming from, and then crying harder when I realize I still have to somehow get her in her carrier with a compromised hand and her on her guard. 

And now she is lounging around the apartment like, “hey what up,” and I’m having popcorn and ice cream for dinner and watching the Avengers movie that I rented a few days ago because I am not equipped to deal with anything else tonight.

Warmer months are coming, and for some people, this means dresses! If you’re like me (fat, and a fan of cute dresses, but not always of bike shorts or leggings when it’s hot) you need this stuff. Put it between your thighs (or anywhere else you need it) and voilà, NO MORE CHUB RUB. It’s a miracle! Finally you too can go pantsless without the agony of a rash at the end of the day.

Me and my thick thighs are intrigued.

Last summer I tried Body Glide for the first time (it’s essentially this, but a different brand, sold at running stores) and I loved it, loved it, loved it, I had bare legs all summer and I can’t wait to do it again.

YOU GUYS!! Thank you to EVERYONE who picked up a copy of LUMBERJANES #1 this week! We’re all so excited with the response. And if you haven’t gotten yours yet, it’s not too late!!
If you’re interested in finding it at a local shop, www.findacomicshop.com. A lot of stores have sold out, but if you request one, they should order more for you! And remember that pre-ordering from a comic shop is THE BEST way to ensure a copy for yourself and support the series.
It’s available digitally on comixology!
Or if you’re interested in print copies arriving at your door step, get it from BOOM!

Lumberjanes #1 made me so happy from start to finish, I highly recommend.

Hey tumblr, have you ever thought to yourself, “dang it’d sure be cool to set a project in something other than the current times,” but when you go to look up references on google, all you get is a horrible historical pastiche of days gone by?

Well boy howdy, do I have a reference for you!

The Wishbook Web has scans of entire consumer catalogs from past decades, ranging from the early 30s to the late 80s. Each catalog has pages upon pages of reference of clothing, accessories, and shoes for all ages, as well as toys, gadgets, and all sorts of junk that you might buy for yourself or your loved ones. While the website exclusively has Christmas catalogs, the photos and illustrations show products that you could use year-round.

SO MANY REFS OMG…

You can also use things like this to date photographs! If you’re into that kind of thing.

COOOOOOOOOOOW?!

I go back and forth on who my favorite characters are (the witches! But Death!! Yeah but Sam Vimes! Oh but the witches. If I had all the time in the world I would reread them all, but I have all these new books to read, and I promised lizlemming I would read Gone, Girl by November 11th.

My date cancelled for tonight so I’m going to see The Winter Soldier. I’m not exactly disappointed, to be honest.

Hello, world!  Here is your fun fact of the day!  The reason most of the bisexual women you know end up with long-term male partners is because there are more straight men than gay women!  It’s not because “all bi chicks are really straight and doing it for attention”!  Never say that again!  Thanks so much!  Have a great Friday!

Yep! Also there’s this thing where women can be really shy about hitting on each other, and that plays into it to some extent. Also visibility: when you’re assumed straight until proven otherwise, you’ll meet more straight men than queer women.
