Winston is doing fine; he had a long day yesterday, but he’s mostly been sleeping it off. The vet has him on antibiotics and puppy painkillers for the week, and although he was bleeding out of his nose last night (something about oral-nasal fistulas [warning for VERY GRAPHIC IMAGES at link] caused by tooth issues that are most common in small dogs, according to the vet), he seems to be...
I really, really dislike it when my attempts to...
Case in point: This thread on an Avatar secret (#156) on the LJ community FandomSecrets, which resulted in an…interesting (read: awful) comment getting left at the original post that I linked to. REALLY DO NOT NEED THIS RIGHT NOW. Even though it was kinda my fault for linking to it. Anyway, I am sorry, fellow FWDers, if my uninhibited zeal here ended up causing any strife/issues for...

Where Were You When?
meloukhia: I’m scrolling through the comments on the farewell post I wrote at Bitch, and they are all overwhelmingly nice, and positive, and lovely. They are appreciative, and loving. They make me happy and it fills me with pleasure to see people asking why we are leaving so soon and when we can come back. And I can’t help but think, “where were you when?” Where were these people when we were...

Why I Like Amanda, The Beginnings Of A List
meloukhia: 1. Amanda is cooler than you. Just deal with it. She is. 2. Amanda is BRAVE. She speaks truth to power. 2b. Sometimes that means that she uses strong words. They are powerful strong words. That is good. I like strong words. 3. Amanda is gentle, and kind, and generous. 4. Amanda reads with care and listens with care. 5. Amanda is a driving force of good in my own life and the...
So, this is what I'm taking from this.
amandaw: What is it that I’m doing wrong according to Amberrhea? - Using the word “privilege.” Um. Ok. - Having an often-blunt style of writing. Not always masking my anger. Using curse words? In shorthand, being a “bully” - “Calling out” people, which is apparently supposed to refer to the fact that I can be confrontational, and will actually tell an individual person when I am not happy...

A winner is you, Barbara Ehrenreich. This is a must-watch, and I don’t say that often.
challyzatb: Do you ever just feel like you’re not cut out to deal with life? And everyone else is? And what on earth is the matter with you? Was everyone else given valuable life lessons while you weren’t paying attention? Why are things so hard? Yes, totally, all the freakin’ time. It’s like, “Did most other people get manuals on how to be totally care-free and not give a...

Dear Tumblr folk
If you are trying to call me out for something, please tell me instead of being passive-aggressive about it. Thanks.
WHAT THE HELL IS THIS
Sometimes, you read a comment on a random blog post that makes you go 0_o This, (warning for EPIC commenter-fail on the rest of the post, too) for me, is one of those comments: “To be honest, my sort of skinny-woman-defense reaction is largely motivated by the fact that I think I’m just still working on psychologically processing and dealing with the fact that as a white, middle-class,...
