AVOID IF POSSIBLE.
i have the flu, so am holed up in my apartment. just went down to my car to clean it up where, um, i puked yesterday. (note to people who have to ride in my car: you can’t tell.) while down there i ran into and exchanged pleasantries with one of the other residents of my building. which means that ron jeremy (yes that ron jeremy) is likely the only one to whom i’ll speak in person...

or diorama, really. inspiring.
via pam’s, i read a wsj editorial complaining about prop 8 protesters demonstrating against or boycotting people/businesses that donated to support prop 8. it complains that because of mandatory donor disclosure laws, people are all afeared that other people will know that they made donations. In the aftermath of Prop. 8 we can glimpse a very ugly future. As anyone who has had their...
this car is an atypical boulder car: note the bumper sticker, the harley sticker, and the pro-life-affirming license plate. this car is a typical boulder car: yes, that’s a subaru station wagon with a roof rack adorned with mini tibetian prayer flags. it sure is.
thanks for noticing that my breasts are a bit larger than average. eagle eye detection there. you’re also correct that breasts such as mine can sometimes be used as a tool for persuasion or manipulation, such as when I lean way over the bar to get free refills. however, I do not agree that their power is such that they should be classified as a national security risk. given that each and...
Yet Another Trans Woman Shot In Memphis, Tennessee →
How many acts of violence does it take for acts of violence against a class of people to be considered an epidemic of violence against this class of people? How many acts of violence against this class of people must occur without police solving these crimes to be considered a rash of unsolved crimes against this class of people? I don’t know. I do know that three violent crimes against...
Man Shot for Talking at the Movies →
A man angry that a family was talking during a movie threw popcorn at the son and then shot the father in the arm, according to police in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Cialella told the family sitting in front of him in the theater on Christmas Day to be quiet, police said. An argument ensued while others at the Riverview Movie Theatre watched “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” starring Brad...

MOCA saved! →
The Museum of Contemporary Art said Tuesday it had negotiated a $30 million bailout with Eli Broad, the city’s leading cultural patron. it’s a miracle broad has any money left - he was big involved with AIG and lost up to $1.5 billion over the summer. glad his remaining pennies are going to MOCA, though!
urg: … I am going to make it through airport security without my bra setting off the metal detector. Its a new life goal. PREACH IT. best was the TSA lady who told me that the next time i flew i should just not wear a bra. yeah, ma’am. haven’t done that since i was 12 and it’d likely lead to a citation for indecency. great plan.

barthel: katyperryblog: Just another day at the office. Yawn. I don’t think I want a Tumblr anymore? ok yes this is horrifying and we can all agree on the objective truth of that. but it does allow us to examine the endlessly fascinating topic of MONKEY DIAPERS. monkeys apparently need to wear them, fine. but where do they come from? who works at the monkey diaper factory? is there a monkey...
white girl hair
guys, not sure how much you’ll get out of this post. i have white girl hair. (i am, after all, a white girl, but several of my white girl friends do not have white girl hair.) it is long. it is totally straight. it is silky. when i wash it, i towel dry and go. i don’t use curlers. i don’t blow-dry. i spent perhaps 5-10 minutes per day on my hair. i’ve never chemically...
