.Behind the Redwood Curtain.

one day this week perhaps i will finally have the ability to draw in my daruma’s other eye.


Stealing all the luck today.

Posted a Happy Rabbit Rabbit Day post on my facebook.

Two people have liked it, I don’t know if they just like rabbits or if they understand the actual context of my post.

Either way more luck for meeee.

KILL HIM

Remember this guy got famous for being the fat dude with weird hair who would draw cum dribbling out of people’s mouths when he first started. No shit he’s still making bad decisions, because now he gets paid a lot to do so… At least his conscious got to him this time around… (or reading that he could possibly be prosecuted.)


Washed the dog.

Cleaned the bathroom.

Doing laundry.

Swiffered the house since it seemingly gets more dog hair than the ancient vacuum my parents own…

Realizing I still haven’t eaten today at all. Dammit Maggie keep it together.


Trixie’s shedding too much.

Time to pull out the Dr. B’s and give her a bath using the hose. 

Normally bathtime is in a bathtub, try to attempt something new…


Gonna make pizza tonight because I can.

and because my dad buys all the ingredients so I just get to cook.

#1 bonus of living at home, I can cook whatever I want, and the parentals pay for everything aaaaand clean it up.

I thought girls didn’t like Super Heroes.

You thought what? 

Also, bless five-year-old girls who can confidently pronounce the words ‘cybernetic enhancements’ because they’re so interested in superhero adventures that they saw no obstacle to learning anything at all to understand them better.

And can do it wearing a pink flower headband, if they feel like it.

GIRLS LIKE SUPERHEROES. GIRLS LIKE COMICS. GIRLS HAVE LIKED THESE THINGS FOR AS LONG AS THEY HAVE BEEN AVAILABLE TO LIKE.

(behold, three girls and one boy avidly reading new comic books in New York City, 1947, photographed by Ruth Orkin)

What girls don’t like is when they’re patronised, and herded towards titles designed according to what grown men think girls are supposed to like, and ignored with regard to titles that those men assume are just for boys and men. What girls don’t like is not being allowed to choose for themselves what they like. 

This is not a new concept. This is noted in Chaucer. What every woman most desires is to choose her own way.

My friend has a little girl who is about 3 now. He’s big into comic book culture so we always nerd out a bit about how the movies follow true / go waaaaay off path from their origins. 

Anyways I was asking him if he would take her to see GoTC, or not since it is PG 13. He said no, but that because of the movie they have been putting out new comics about Groot and others. 

Anyways he was telling me all about how she loves Groot and her only influence is the comics. She is afraid of Tickle me Elmo, and loves Groot. Best 3 year old ever.

Trixie was climbing across a fallen tree while her leash was attached, half way across she fell off, good thing it was only a foot and a half onto leaves and soil. poor pup seemed a bit dazed, but was completely okay. 

Nowhere near as bad as her first day with us when Adam was holding her and she wriggled free of his arms and fell straight down onto the floor. That time she yelped. 

Dog O’ Steel two. (Dog O’ Steel one was obviously Ashley, who got run over twice and lived to be 18.5)


Oh hey, I decided to finally buy some new facial sunscreen so that I can stop using my spf 50 body sunscreen on my face (I don’t mind using it on my face but that’s more for my ears, chest, arms, etc.

Anyways, go on Nordstroms to order it (trying something new since Clinique lowered the SPF of my normal face sunscreen and that’s not okay) and I typed in my shipping address. 

Then I needed to change my billing address because it popped up as my shipping address which is not my billing address by any means…

When I finished the order I checked my account to make sure all was well and of course when I changed my billing address it changed my shipping address (why? I do not know!) so I got to IM the lovelies at Nordstroms to fix it.

Unfortunately my order hasn’t even graced their system yet, yes I do catch things that quick! So they’re telling me they should be able to take care of it, and if not they’ll send me an email.

I want my g-d sunscreen and multitudes of free samples to go to where I’m currently living, not to Arcata where I am not.

So they said it’ll be fixed, I emailed myself the transcript, hopefully the odds are ever in my favor.


Dad tells me he needs new vacuum bags and though he can get them in town he doesn’t like the store where they sell them and muses that they’re probably cheaper online.

I tell him, you can get 9 for the price of that bag of 4 you have, but you have to pay shipping. 

He tossed his credit card at me and said get them, so now for a whole $12.15ish he’s getting 9, instead of $7-something for 4.


unpopular opinion?

Lately I’ve been seeing all these ladies (because really only ladies post this shit for the world to see) talking about how their lives wouldn’t be anything without their guy.

Oh today wouldn’t have been any fun without him.

Oh such and such wouldn’t mean a thing without him.

Adam and I just celebrated 5 years, we just got married, guess who I haven’t seen in a week? Adam. Guess who I won’t be seeing until 2 more weeks… Adam. Guess who I spent Mid April through November without while going through the HARDEST time in my little life, Adam. Guess who wasn’t around for the 3 weeks leading up to our wedding, and only came back a week early because we had a wedding to attend, oh yeah! ADAM.

You know, yeah I missed him. I missed him a ton. Did I still go do shit? Yes. Did I do it with friends? Usually not, because they were always wanting to bring their boyfriends, or wanting to stay in with their boyfriends because they hadn’t seen them. These ladies all live with their boyfriends, so I never understood those sentences.

really like being independent. 

really like being married.

really like being my own g-d person and whether or not Adam’s with me isn’t the point, if I’m enjoying myself, I’m enjoying myself, I do enjoy making memories with my mister, but I enjoy making memories in general.

Maybe it’s because I spent the first 18 years of my life with ZERO relationships… but hey, be your own person, and if your man wants to join in let him (unless you were asked to hang out with your girlfriend because bitch if I invite you to hang out I did NOT invite your man, unless I did and then it’s chill…)

Navajo Kindergartner Sent Home from School, Ordered to Cut His Hair
On Monday, a 5-year-old Native American boy was sent home on his first day of school and ordered to cut his hair short because it allegedly violated district policy, the boy’s mother said.The child, Malachi Wilson, an enrolled citizen of the Navajo Nation, had been looking forward to his first day of kindergarten at F.J. Young Elementary in Seminole, Texas.

They deny our culture in effort to erase what isn’t theirs. If they can’t steal it, they must eradicate it. In his hair is story and that’s what they don’t want you to hear.
This boy and the boy who’s being persecuted by schools for his locs are victims of the same animals- jealousy and hatred. May they also be the victors, as their spiritual and cultural rights should be honored and respected.
Anyone who says otherwise is not to be trusted.

Blame the DOE.

I looked into their dress code… this is what it states under Males, among other things…
Males:Boys’ hair shall be cut neatly and often enough to ensure good grooming. When combed straight forward, the hair shall be above the eyebrows and may not extend below the bottom of the collar of a sport of dress shirt or the top of a t-shirt, and when combed over the ear, may cover no more than the top half of the ear.
Rattails, “Mohawks,” and/or ponytails are not permitted.
This school is not part of the DOE, this school is an independent school district as are most in Texas. This is this school’s rule, this has nothing to do with the DOE.
I also THOROUGHLY enjoy that the school’s mascot is a Seminole Native with long hair, and the smiley emoticons are wearing “Indian Headbands” (for lack of knowledge of a better term, and if you google that word you’d see exactly what I’m talking about.) 
Anyways I completely disagree with telling this boy to cut his hair, and maybe it’s the Californian in me, but it’s his hair, it’s part of him, the school board (that’s who you can blame) shouldn’t be able to decide for him. View Larger

skunkandburningtires:

James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.

From the film’s IndieGo page:

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.
