Insert boring description: I'm a thirty-something wife and mother who married the guy I met my first year of college. Hey, he asked me to go look at the stars our first date- How could I NOT fall for him? I'm a former high school teacher taking a break to raise my two young sons and hope that NCLB will have been repealed by the time I go back to my career :P I majored in English Literature and Art History so I'm impossible to watch films or go to the museum with.

I blog political stuff and I'm an unapologetic liberal. There's stuff here critical of Autism Speaks and I was diagnosed with autism back in high school, so I'm not the most socially adept person at all. I also have ADD so way too short attention span and good thing I read fast :P

I've been involved in various television and anime fandoms since college, when doing so meant posting on a list serv or attending conventions with packs of blank VHS tapes and a VCR. I've dabbled in fanfiction and fanart, especially slash in many fandoms using many usernames over the years, but I'm actually not very good at either and I have MUCH more fun viewing the amazing works other fans create.

I'm socially and politically liberal, ELCA Christian and I've lived in Texas my entire life. We do exist I swear...and I accept no responsibility for that damn Bush or Perry.

So the next time you see a harried middle aged southern woman in jeans and a ponytail herding kids through a store, just remember it could be me :P

I really don't get the whole Tumblr thing so I treat it like a shortened Livejournal really, since I've had one of those for the past decade or so.

Within the fairy-tale kingdom of Atraesca lies the prestigious Princess Academy, where young royals from all the five kingdoms come to get their education. But they’ve never before seen the like of Princess Ülga of Grimmeria. Armed with axe and sword, riding her war mammoth through the city gates, Ülga has come in search of schooling. But this barbarian princess might just end up schooling the people of Atraesca before that happens!

The 1% wants to ban sleeping in cars – because it hurts their 'quality of life'

redsuns-n-orangemoons:

bspolitics:

Let’s see; keep pay low for average workers, keep pay high for the higher-ups, keep unemployment high by squeezing as much as possible out of those workers and basically tell anyone who can’t get by to stay out of sight.

whose life is being affected by someone sleeping in their own car?

So discretionary spending money is something we just haven’t had for a long time, what with living on unemployment, and then just one income for a few years now. 

But the spouse said I should spend a bit of money on myself now that we are both working. I think he thought I would replace my ancient broken first gen kindle, or get my hair done.

Nope, I went to Bath and Body Works for the first time in years and spent nearly $50 there.
