Don't Panic!

May. 18th, 2016 12:11 am Patronising

It's as if my own boyfriend didn't realise that I spend several hours a day, every single day, on my computer.

I work at a smaller chain pharmacy as a cashier. I’ve had my fair share of bad customers, some worse than others. Most of the regulars are nice and can/will easily joke with you and talk to you. But then there are the ones you just want to beat over the head.

I've been crapping golf balls today (I swear, they were smaller than tennis balls).
I can only thank the Gods that I never had to give birth. Altho at least you get an epidural for that.
Considering the amount of pain and the bleeding, maybe I should ask for and epidural to go to the toilet.

So far, I've had:
At least 1 1/2 portions each of starchy food and greens,
1 portion of proteins (rich in omega 3),
About 1 portion of dairy,
1 portion of food containing fat AND sugar.

I'm not sure what I'll eat later, apart from more biscuits this afternoon.

My favourites:

I was married with two kids by your age.
I totally would have done the same thing before the women equality laws were passed too. Whew! Glad those days are over :)

You don't have any kids?
No. The safe sex thing keeps getting in the way.

And from the comments:

After the seventh one died, I said: "Screw it, these things are much harder than goldfish!"

Such an attractive young person, but still no one special?
Well, there is this one girl, and when her husband gets out of prison...

Oct. 13th, 2011 02:04 am Mississippi Personhood Amendment

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.

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.

Sep. 19th, 2011 09:15 pm SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA

Originally posted by darkspirited1 at SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA

This comes from an article by rachelmanija entitled, Say Yes to Gay YA.
(click the link for the full article)

Our novel Stranger has five viewpoint characters; one, Yuki Nakamura, is
gay and has a boyfriend. Yuki's romance, like the heterosexual ones in
the novel, involves nothing more explicit than kissing.

An agent from a major agency, one which represents a bestselling YA novel in the same genre as ours, called us.

The agent offered to sign us on the condition that we make the gay
character straight, or else remove his viewpoint and all references to
his sexual orientation.

This isn't about that specific agent; we'd gotten other rewrite requests before this one. Previous agents had also offered to take a second look if we did rewrites… including cutting the viewpoint of Yuki, the gay character.

It's time to stand up and demand change. Spread the word everywhere if you are just as angry and outraged by this.
