Sundries, because I can't be arsed to write real words in here right now:
*Yo dawg, I heard you like cupcakes, so I put some cupcakes on your cupcakes so you can eat cupcakes while you eat cupcakes.1
*According to xtricks
, we should all be watching a show called Daybreak
. I'm down with this, as soon as I have less homework.
*I like this Shakesville post, about why a woman might choose to take her husband's name
*From back during the elections, badmagic
speculates about how Superman and other superheroes would vote
*So, apparently DeviantART
is completely awful about non-binary gender options. As in, used to have an "undefined" option alongside male and female, and have since gotten rid of it. The whole elaborate drama is appalling, and I do intend to get rid of my account. Just have to snag all the art out of it, from the last billion years (seriously, I've been on dA since like 2003) and maybe find a new place to host my drawings, when I think they're neat enough to put online. Arg.
At any rate, if there were things you wanted to look at (there isn't, it's like ninety-five percent Assassins crack-fanart), you should go snag them from my account
before I actually get around to deleting it. Which will be when I'm less busy.
*Methods of Rationality keeps updating, and keeps being rad (though my brain is busy screaming "HE'S EVIL YOU IDIOT" at Harry right now). Someone made this awesome fanart for a faux-sequel -- Bayeilisk
*sunspiral writes about how his son uses modern technology in old games.
I _really_ want to play some large-scale, cell phone organized Capture the Flag now. Or even some normal Capture the Flag, it's a hell of a game.
appears to be the blog post about the boy-who-dressed-as-Daphne-for-Halloween that's actually written by the mom. That mom is the single most awesome mother in the entire world after mine, and I wish her and her children all the best in the world.
(The post starts with My son is gay. Or he’s not. I don’t care. He is still my son. And he is 5. And I am his mother. And if you have a problem with anything mentioned above, I don’t want to know you.
Right. Fucking. On!
Also worth reading for the great line If you think that me allowing my son to be a female character for Halloween is somehow going to ‘make’ him gay then you are an idiot. Firstly, what a ridiculous concept. Secondly, if my son is gay, OK. I will love him no less. Thirdly, I am not worried that your son will grow up to be an actual ninja so back off.
Lawl, actual ninja.)
*So, there's this woman called the Blogess, and I found her randomly, and clicked around on old posts, and found myself laughing my ass off at the saga of James Garfield. Part One
, Part Two
. Warning, swearing.
MOOP!1: Sorry, I really love the "yo dawg I heard you like..." meme. It makes me giggle for some reason.
