Notice

I shifted blogs a while back and being fairly private, which is why I’ve been so scarce on here.

If you want to follow me still, you can go here

I’m not certain if I’m going to delete this blog, but it will be a while before I do if I do.

Half-Mourning Dress
1910-1912
The Victoria & Albert Museum

What’s a “half-mourning” dress?  Mourning in the front, party in the back?

Half-Mourning was the third stage of mourning for a widow. She would be expected to mourn her husband for at least two years, the stages being Full Mourning, Second Mourning and Half-Mourning. The different stages regulated what they would be wearing, with Full Mourning being all black and with no ornamentation, including the wodow’s veil, and the stages after that introducing some jewellery and modest ornamentation. When in Half-Mourning you would gradually include fabrics in other colors and sort of ease your way out of mourning. 
Wow, I am happy you made that joke so I could interpert it as a serious question and have an excuse to ramble on about clothing customs of the past, I am a historical fashion nerd.

That’s very informative, but I’m going to stick with my original head canon:


I love both the informed fashion history and the hilariously off-the-wall halves of this post.

Don’t know what to want from this world
I really don’t know what to want from this world
I don’t know what it is you wouldn’t want from me
You have no right to want anything from me at all
Why don’t you take it out on somebody else?
Why don’t you tell somebody else that they’re selfish?
Weepy coward and pathetic…

Trying to find words to express things you’ve bottled up is so, so hard. It’s hard to be clear and concise without getting upset and risking a meltdown, so sometimes it’s best to remove oneself entirely, take a deep breath and attempt objectivity.

Just finished doing the transcript of Farewell, MontanaforNerdfightaria’s Wiki, and realized that there was a “found poem” to be discovered in the midst:

"I walked in here

and all of a sudden it all

seemed to make sense.

Everything I used to not really understand about science

or biology 

in a broader context,

seemed to all be a lot more clear once I actually

came into a place where you could see it

physically.

You could touch these things and you could

interact with them and you could

get up close;

it wasn’t just looking at them as pictures in textbooks,

it wasn’t just looking at them as slides underneath the microscope,

it was actually being really close with these objects. And it was this

epiphany,

'I can do science.

I can do science! Yeah, science is a thing

that I like!’”

I would argue that Michael Aranda is the poet for his ability to cut together things that I say in order to create the greatest impact - but thank you. 

Honestly, this was something that resonated with me ridiculously deeply when you said it. It flowed in just the right way, and it excites me that others felt the same way.

WHAT DO YOU AMERICANS MEAN WHEN A SHOW IS ON AT LIKE FUCKIN “8/7c” WHAT IS THAT????

we don’t even know

It means that the show is on at 8:00. Unless you’re on Central time, in which case it’s at 7:00. Incidentally, I have no idea if any of the other time zones broadcast their shows at 8:00 and Central just gets it like two hours before the further west.

Sometimes, we drift away from people. It’s natural. Sometimes it’s because we simply don’t talk, and sometimes it’s because we’ve been hurt.

All we can do is hope that, in the future, those people become people with whom we can actually be friends again, in just the same way as it had been, but we’ll always long for what used to be

Said No One Ever!

Said me, actually.  Why?
Those funny books and websites with Chuck Norris jokes? He sued them.
Chuck Norris has given thousands of dollars to the Republican party since before some of us were born.
Norris said that Obama being reelected would bring on “socialism or something much worse” and  "1,000 years of darkness".  Hmmm… that wording’s not problematic at all, right?
Chuck Norris vocally supported California Prop 8, saying, “[P]ro-Prop. 8 votes weren’t intended to deprive any group of its rights; they were safeguarding their honest convictions regarding the boundaries of marriage.” 
His good buddy Rick Perry (who only seems opens his mouth when he wants to piss me off) made Chuck Norris an honorary Texas Ranger ten years after the show was canceled.
He thinks schools should not allow LBGTQ students to participate in the Day of Silence.  Norris asks, "Is encouraging or teaching about homosexuality what our forefathers expected for the public education they founded?"
For Chuck Norris, promoting Christianity trumps freedom of the press.  "How abhorring it is when the freedom of the press is abused to demean the biblical God?"
So fuck Chuck Norris.

Fuck Chuck Norris.

FUCK CHUCK NORRIS
