My goal is to finish the last chapter of RH before the end of the month (I’m doing NaNoWriMo)

I’m about halfway there, so it actually may happen. Cross fingers for me 😬

I tried to make cover art for the novel I’m writing for NaNoWriMo. Of course, the thumbnail is so small that my title got cut out. 
What do you think, though? Good/bad/ugly?

What kind of book would you guess it is from the cover? Does it pique your interest?

So wait — we actually make something like that official on the NaNo website? I feel like you just asked me to go steady with you.

UBER 4 LIFe. I might get a bit over enthused but I’m a huge fan. Especially cause if you do happen to have a bad ride their customer service is great and will refund you.

——-

I didn’t know about that! That’s awesome.

The guy driving me this morning refused to speak to me at all or acknowledge anything I said, so I had no idea if he’d heard me when I gave directions, etc. For the first five minutes I thought he might be deaf (are deaf people allowed to drive cabs? Probably not, but who knows?)

I ended up jumping out of the cab and running the last three blocks because he slowed down for every yellow light (WTF does that in NYC?).

Ever since Uber started, all of the yellow taxis have started driving really slowly, like the extra dollar for dawdling is going to add up over the day. I would pay them two extra dollars if they’d stop doing that and get me there faster than I can walk it.

#BourgeoisPeopleProblems

Side note: I can’t think of uber without hearing Micky Milkovich’s voice in my head saying ‘yeah, I called the yuber’, slightly mispronouncing the name, because he was stealing somebody’s cab and had no idea what an uber was. Guess thugs from the south side don’t take private cabs.

Being in a cab with a slow ass drive when you’re running late is the worst! I’m doing uber from now on. They drive faster when the meter isn’t running.

"So, I ask to the women who are still not sure about rape culture, patriarchy, or male supremacy, if you see the problem behind a culture in which “no” is punishable, but where failure to say “no” makes any violation of your personhood your own fault. When you sit back for a moment and think to yourself that surely you can say no to men, and that I am blowing things way out of proportion, then at least do this test within your own life: Start saying No more often when No is what you really want to say. Establish firm boundaries with men and do not let up. See if the male you are saying no to immediately stops and respects your boundary, or if his automatic response, reflexive—as though he’s been learning how to do this since he was a boy, as though he sees no other response more logical than this—is to attempt to do what you have just asked him not to do to you. Notice how you feel when telling a man “no” as well. Do you feel butterflies in your stomach? Do you feel guilty (denying him his right of access to you)? Do you feel mean? Do you feel unsure at all as to whether or not you have the right to tell him no? It is very easy to feel that men are not so bad when you are still making sure to give them what they want."

Hundreds of Colorado students are fighting back against dangerous text book changes

A Colorado school district has come under fire for trying to change its history curriculum — and its own students have schooled it on what real American history is.

Earlier this month, the school district of Jefferson County, Colo. — the second-largest district in the state — announced it was considering a change to the Advanced Placement U.S. history curriculum to “promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benefits of the free-market system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights” and not “encourage or condone civil disorder, social strike or disregard of the law.”

If the proposal passes, the district’s conservative-majority school board would establish a committee to review textbooks and other classroom materials to see if they meet this new criteria. In other words, any textbook that didn’t seem “patriotic enough” (an aggressively arbitrary and potentially very dangerous label) would be cut. 

So teachers and students walked out | Follow micdotcom

Public Apology!

Contrary to appearances, I do realize that my last 25 posts have basically been one long, public conversation between hanitjemars and me. LOL. Sorry!

hanitjemars I’m putting her pics next to six other yellow coats. Tell me hers isn’t a hell-dowdy version of theirs?

It’s too long, the material looks like something you make stuffed animals out of, and the yellow is washed-out and too green and the hemline is like something out of the Edwardian Era.

The other coats are much nicer with better hues of yellow, and don’t have fuzzy grommets randomly placed all over them.

My point is that she almost gets a trend right but then doesn’t, and it’s a crime with the way she looks.

PS - I am in love with Kylie Minogue’s goldenrod jacket. I’m going to marry it.

I kinda like the Edwardian era thing going on. Different taste I guess, as I am also the same height as her. Do I think the outfit is brilliantly amazing? No. But I still think she looks cute wearing this particular ensemble. This is her photoshoot style, her stylist dressed her up - or her magz stylist (different photoshoot has different stylist). There are worse thing than this, especially her own personal style.

Yeah, I got your point. But my point is that the yellow coat is least her offensive fashion crime. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but I’m okay with it.

It’s actually pretty much like Renato Balestra style during the 60s - bold colors and boxy coats. If she had pixie haircuts, it would be a retro blast from the past. That’s why it reminds me of Pushing Daisies.

The pushing daisies coats are great. And I actually have a thing for Edwardian clothes, but not ones made out of albino cookie monster pelt. We’re going to have to agree to disagree about the Kristen coat.

And yeah, I’m with you on this not being her worst offense. That outfit you posted was so much worse. I was just using this coat as an example of how she always misses the target by 20%.

Are you serious about the stylist? Does she actually pay somebody to choose her clothes for her? Who picked out those white, skin-tight pants with the hideous print that she wore relentlessly while she shot the VM movie?

KB obviously doesn’t give a shit about clothes, and that’s totally her call. Not everybody has to be a fashionista just because they work as an actress. I actually respect the fact that she isn’t superficial.

It’s just that she wears clothes that look like they came off clearance sale rack at a Dillard’s in Madison, WI. Why not just throw on a black, Calvin Klein slip dress, like Jennifer Aniston does at every single event? She probably spends five minutes picking out her clothes - deciding if she should be daring and wear the navy one this time. It’s not exciting but she always looks good.

When KB shows up wearing something on-trend (by accident?), she is the hotness. It’s just such a waste. If I had her money and her figure they would have to drag my ass out of Barney’s.

The stylist for photoshoot is usually chosen by the magazine or the magazine stylist. I don’t think she paid the stylist for this particular photoshoot. It was provided by the magazine. But for the personal stylist? I don’t think she has one. I can understand her style, she’s friends with Zachary Quinto and Chris Lowell. LOL. Have you seen them dressed up IRL?

Chris lowell looked freaking adorable at the VM movie premiere! He totally had it going on. Are you saying he’s a slob and that was a one-off?

Nobody knows how to dress better than Percy though. Dude had a fucking silk scarf dangling around his neck like a 1920’s dandy. And I mean that in all of the best ways.

Red carpet is not real life. Chris is basically a slob hipster in real life, ugh. Dude like to wears Debbie Gibson hats and over sized sweaters with skinny jeans. But he’s smart for hiring stylist for every events and red carpets. Not so much IRL.

As style goes, Percy is much much better recent years after he got engaged and had a baby. Back then he dressed like Vanilla Ice IRL and even at red carpet for some reason. I kinda like this suave gangster red carpet style for Veronica Mars movie. He’s learning with the retro stuff and upping his game towards more Tom Ford-ish. I can’t say the same thing with Francis Capra… I just can’t. Jason… it depends.

Ryan is the best fashionista, I guess :))

Tina and Krysten have the better style even without stylists. KR was a model, so understandable. Tina is just unique and just great, like she’s comfortable and also know what to wear in every event. Occasionally miss out, but not too big offender.

Yes to all of this. I fucking love Tina. She always looks great, because she owns it.

Krysten is perfect. I hate her (okay, I really love her).

Francis wore like, a Hawaiian(?) shirt to the premiere and one of those pork pie hats, like the bass guitarist in a 1950’s retro jazz band. It wasn’t stylish, but it felt like him.

Ryan makes me swoon. Holy shit can that man wear a suit.

There’s nothing wrong with J-Doh’s sense of dress, he just looks like his wife orders all of his clothes for him off of the Banana Republic website. Like, his clothes are safe and boring, but he doesn’t seem like a risk taker, which fine. Better safe than sorry. He’s probably just happy if his shirts fit properly (he must have to tailor absolutely everything now!) and the material is nice.

KB looked great at the premiere, for the five minutes she was there. Obviously somebody else chose the dress (isn’t it funny how even in that commercial with Dax and KB, she doesn’t know how to dress herself and makes him decide for her?). Life imitates art or vice versa?

Percy has the most swag by far.

Hehhehh, Lauren pick up Jason’s clothes. “Honeeey, how about this one?” Click click click. “You heard me baeee?” Sees her hubby gardening. “Y’Know what, Imma order all of these.”

"Wait, sweetheart, did you make sure those were rack colors?"

Aww, now all I can think of is Jason gardening. And he totally would, if she asked. She probably has to special order his shirts, make the arm holes wider to accommodate his giant guns. And he doesn’t care what he wears, as long as his wife is happy with it. I’ll bet he’d wear a silly tie if his daughter picked it out.
