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 I'm a former high school teacher taking a break to raise my two young sons and hope that NCLB will have been repealed by the time I go back to my career :P I majored in English Literature and Art History so I'm impossible to watch films or go to the museum with.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.

The average age in Boston in the early 1770s was 14. More than half the population of Boston was under 21 in the events leading up to the American Revolution.

It really puts everything into a completely different context, doesn’t it?

I’ve never heard a man say:
“Not all women are like that.” or
“But my mother is not like that!!” not even “My girlfriend is not like that.”
“My wife is not like that.”
“My sister is not like that.”
“Please stop generalising women.”
Haha. Won’t happen.

My father recently lost his job, we lost our house and now on top of this he has been diagnosed with cancer of the lymph nodes. 

He is a professional machinist and has been working as one for over 30 years, only to then have his work stolen from him by his own mother and sister.  We’ve been scraping by since then and now that he lost his job we have absolutely nothing to live off of.

He is such a strong person and until yesterday I have never once seen him cry.  We’re absolutely devastated - he has cancer and we have no way to help him.  

He has always refused to take money from other people and he has spent his life helping people in need, and now we are the ones who need help.

My mother’s best friend has made a gofundme to try and help us pay our bills (we currently have no income whatsoever) and get him the treatment he so desperately needs.  

If you can’t donate then (please, please, please) signal boost this.  I’ll also share with him any supportive asks I receive regarding this..

I love my father so much and I am so afraid to lose him right now.

GOFUNDME

Update: Apparently some people are having issues with gofundme so I’ve added a donate button to my sidebar!!  Thank you guys so much!

Update #2: The doctor alerted us that they’ve likely found cancer in his sinuses as well. Please please please signal boost this I’m really scared right now.

Update #3:  He has cancer in his lymph nodes and we just found out he has it in his bone marrow as well…  Please please please signal boost this, the notes have slowed down to a near standstill and It’s really worrying me.. Even if you can’t donate, please reblog.  We need help.
