So what happens if two people who have promised their firstborn to separate witches have a child together? Do they both just pop up in the nursery and have a custody battle?

I need a book about a little girl…

Aaaaaaapril you need to see this.

I may be starting either 6mp or Methotrexate soon. Anyone have experiences/advice they want to share with me?

I had a bad experience with 6mp, but my reaction was VERY uncommon.

Basically, right after I started taking it, it became clear that it was a problem. My body processes WAY more of the drug than most people’s, so I was basically overdosing and causing liver toxicity (side effects included massive fatigue [almost narcolepsy], inability to pay attention, and short term memory loss). They modified the dosage and gave me another medicine to stop my liver from being so excited about things, and that helped for a while, but after several months the symptoms started creeping back up. I am now off of it (not taking any immunosuppressants… we’ll see how that goes) and going to change doctors because mine didn’t want me to even consider Methotrexate because ~*~OMG if you get pregnant it is horrible!~*~ (nevermind that I said several times that it is NOT AN ISSUE for me… seriously. I basically had to spell out our entire ~*~family reproductive plan~*~ for him to say that he would *let* me consider it after I did some research.)

Again, my reaction is VERY uncommon. Apart from the liver toxicity, it was totally fine (all of the side effects were caused by the liver toxicity). Some hair loss, but I decided that if I ever went bald I would cosplay as Minsc sometime.

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazis supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

Thoughts on Ferguson

So I have been reading a ton on Tumblr and other sources about Ferguson, and some thoughts have been percolating. Typing from my phone so pardon if anything is short/disjointed.

Even playing Devil’s Advocate (bear with me, I swear I am not going to go neckbeard on you)… say the officer who shot Michael Brown WAS completely in the right. Self defense by the book. I don’t think that’s how things happened, but bear with me.

IF the officer was completely in the right, then there is still a larger issue. Law enforcement has “cried wolf” enough times and been found (even if, or especially if, the courts have taken their side) to have been acting as racist douchecanoes enough that, yeah, people are going to get angry. If, as a group, you tolerate, support, and protect racists, people are going to think you’re racist. Even if, hypothetically, one individual did not do anything wrong, it is totally rational and sane to make that assumption.

So… that’s my thinking. Rambling. “Devil’s Advocate” and whatever.

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question

Attempt two at “unfunk the many hand towels” is a go.

First attempt (vinegar) unfunked the non-hand-towel items that had been in the same original load of laundry, but did not unfunk the hand towels themselves.

Second attempt is baking soda. I put almost a full cup in the load of wash, and sprinkled it on the layers that went in the machine.

If this does not work, I think attempt three might be napalm, because the smell of curdled milk is really really unpleasant.

Here are some basics on herd immunity, and here is some more technical research if you’re interested in the details! 

If you’ve ever heard my rants about vaccination, you know it’s a major topic with me. Because hey, I’m one of these immunosuppressed people this comic talks about, so it’s a bit of a sensitive subject. (“Oh, I’m sorry, you don’t like getting vaccinated? I don’t like having three month long respiratory infections because you gave me the freaking flu, but I guess you don’t care about that”)

Essentially, Ellen and her wonderful character Katherine have just said it better than I ever could—and using Shaun of the Dead references, too!!! It’s all about herd immunity—getting vaccinated isn’t just about your own health, it’s about the health—and non-zombification—of the entire human race.

Awesome explanation.

Booyah! Broke up one of the cement patio blocks today! Sledgehammer FTW!

Now… to figure out how to dispose of the concrete (hoping I can find someone who needs fill), watch my blisters grow, and wonder how much my body is going to hate me in the morning. At least years of wrestling and some lifting weights means I actually DO know how to swing a weight around?

Geode Knitting Pattern

This is attempts number two and three at a knitted geode. I would love to spend more time on these, making wonkier shapes, more colour options, just plain bigger versions. At the moment I’d be quite happy to spend the entire year knitting rocks, I’m not sure that the website would keep getting hits if I did though.

Claire! I thought you would like these.
