What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo cut itself on angel's hair and baby's breath

NK Jemisin's WisCon GoH speech. (to many people linked to this one)

A good thought on the Princess Culture. Yes, this. (Grokked from Annalee)

Since we're heading into summer, as PSA. "Drowning does not look like drowning."

One of the many #yesallwomen. (Grokked from Vince)

Your own personal power plant isn't that far off. (Grokked from MJ Locke)

Of some pertinence to the WisCon speeches linked above, eight charts that show why racial equality is a myth. (Grokked from Matt Staggs, I think)

Joe the Plumber is such a putz. I almost said "a horrible, fucking pathetic excuse for an insecure man", but I'm waiting for it to be official. Dear Tea Party, this is your hero? You can do better. (Grokked from MJ Locke)

"There's a downtick in Second Amendment paranoia over gun-control legislation that never came to pass, and retailers are jittery about lower gun sales." And cue the NRA to gin up that fear to sell more guns in 3…2…1… And, yes, that actually is the NRA's function, they're a lobbyist for the gun manufacturing industry, despite what you may think their actual purpose is (again, follow the money, analyze the statements they make). It's why a paranoid lunatic is the functioning leader of the organization. (Grokked from Matt Staggs)

But, if gun sales are down, why not have a hipster web series based on… okay, I got nothin' here. Um, yeah, Bob. (Grokked from John)

Tweet of my heart: @jimchines Reminder to self: This is a first draft. It's okay if it's crap. Stop overanalyzing every word, and just write the silly thing! (this was from Tuesday, May 27 2014 - Jim has got, I don't know, a dozen books under his belt)

Speaking of princesses...

Did you see the shirt I got for me niece (and will give to other young girls in my life)?


Steve Buchheit said...

I like it! Does it come in adult sizes?

Random Michelle K said...

It DOES come in adult sizes! In fact, I have one for myself!

Random Michelle K said...

They run small.

Hmm, a babydoll sizing won't work for Bette (and I'm not liking the other designs I see out there). But it should work for my niece.
