Well, I'll be doggoned.

If you said my subject in Donald Duck's voice, and you know why you did so, you're pretty rad. If you didn't, you're still pretty rad, but I will tell you it's from Mickey's Christmas Carol. I've seen it every year of my life. ANYWAY. I have Withers goings on to share! Shall we?

People usually put warnings here. I prefer the element of surprise!Collapse )

...WTF.

Well, there goes my good mood for the day.

NYTimes, the bastion of quality reporting, reported on the gang-rape of an 11 year-old girl in Texas  that's led to charges against 18 high-school boys so far - all well and good so far, right?  Shit like this NEEDS publicity to raise awareness. 

Only problem is, they repeated - without refutation or critical commentary - the claims that the girl brought the rape on herself because of the way she was dressed.

Choice Quotes (No cut b/c everyone needs to see this - DEAL.):

“It’s just destroyed our community,” said Sheila Harrison, 48, a hospital worker who says she knows several of the defendants. “These boys have to live with this the rest of their lives.  As opposed to the victim, who's gonna bounce back lickety-fucking-split, right?

Residents in the neighborhood where the abandoned trailer stands — known as the Quarters — said the victim had been visiting various friends there for months. They said she dressed older than her age, wearing makeup and fashions more appropriate to a woman in her 20s. She would hang out with teenage boys at a playground, some said.  TOTALLY BEGGING FOR IT.

THIS IS RAPE CULTURE, PEOPLE.

Now, what's being said and done in this community is bad enough, but the NY Times should be fucking ashamed of themselves right now.

Here's how to contact NYT: )

Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday (if you celebrate it), if not, I hope you had a lovely day anyway. As for me, I had a fantastic day, so there's that.

My work schedule's been too wonky for Withersing, but here's some spam from Mina and Brody's child farm (original owner sixtylilies). Underwear dancing!Collapse )

NaNo

Oh yes, it's happening again.

It is November second, and it is day two of NaNoWriMo 2010. So far I am at 4,208 words, with plenty of time left in the day to add more.

I'm going to make a filter for my NaNobabble, because I know many folks are just here for the Withers family and could not care less about my literary genius (Beyond "lol, Ian's creepy." anyway.) This post is public, in case someone wants to comment and be added to the filter. If you can't see this post, I didn't know you were interested. If you are, let me know. (And if you CAN see that post, but wish you couldn't, let me know that, too.)

I decided to dump a bunch of screencaps here for all the world to peruse. Some new faces, some Ian, and a cat.

Ian and one of his granddaughters start the show.Collapse )

Okay, so yesterday I went outside and I walked across the yard and I swatted at a bug and I hollered for my dog to NOT tear across the street toward the neighbor's dog and I opened the mailbox and...

THERE WAS A PRESENT FOR ME! 8D

Unnanounced Hiatus was unnannounced.

There was no hiatus, I've just been loathe to do this update becuase I f'ked around and accidentally set my Gadwin to make jpgs instead of pngs, and the image quality has suffered. Next update is fixed, but here's this one in all it's undetailed glory:

If it starts with potty-training face, it has to be decent!Collapse )

Ian smart smug

[BPAL Junkie] Wanderlust: Shanghai


In My Head: A cup of tea with lemon and honey. What else?

 

Website: The crisp, clean scent of green tea touched with lemon verbena and honeysuckle.

 

In the Bottle: Lemon verbena, mostly.  Also something sharper, which I’ll bet is the green tea.  No honeysuckle yet.

 

Immediately After Application: Entirely lemon verbena so far.  It’s okay, but I suppose I’d hoped for more tea.

 

Warming Up: Very herbal, which is what lemon verbena has traditionally done on me.  I can’t say I care for it, unfortunately.

 

Dried:  Still herbena (see what I did there?), but with shades of tea and waaaayyyy in the background, if I’m sniffing for it, I can detect a hint of honeysuckle.

 

Overall: I’d hoped to smell like a cup of tea, and ended up smelling like herbs.  Lemon verbena is a nice enough scent, but it’s not for me, unfortunately. …Four Hours Later… I just idly sniffed my wrist to see if the scent was still there.  It is, and the lemon verbena has backed off.  It’s calmed down into something sweet and more like what I wanted from the get go. It’s very nice.  Still not keeping it, as I’d prefer something that doesn’t take 4 hours for me to really enjoy.

 

It Rates: 2/5.  I’ll swap or sell this guy, lemon verbena is just not my taste. :\
