Okay everyone. Do you see this?
Do you see these two words?
They do not mean the same thing.
Can we all decide to stop using “gay” as a synonym for bisexual, since they’re completely different things? Bisexuality is not the same concept as homosexuality, nor is it a subset of it.


Dear headline writer,"Queer.""Queer" is the umbrella term you’re looking for. Alternately, if the problem is that "bisexual" is too long, then consider "bi" as an alternative.

things I have discovered:

filling out job applications with a resume:
NO EFFORT, GOES SMOOTHLY
filling those big job applications that ask for a lot of the same information over and over and you can't just attach a resume:
AFFRONT TO MY ADHD. WHY IS THIS A THING SOME WORKPLACES DO.

You know how you hear stories of dogs keeping their owners alive for weeks after having a stroke or running for miles to get help if their owners are hurt in the wild, I accidentally knocked my wheelchair away while sitting on the couch and had to slide across the floor on a cushion before climbing back in, Rico not only didn’t help but howled at me while i was doing it because i wasn’t paying attention to him.

So the theory is what those other dogs are doing is saying, “My human is unable to pet me!  This is unacceptable!  Fix it!”?
I find that credible.

Each relationship between two persons is absolutely unique. That is why you cannot love two people the same. It simply is not possible. You love each person differently because of who they are and the uniqueness that they draw out of you.

 Wm. Paul Young, The Shack: Where Tragedy Confronts Eternity  (via corvidae-and-crossroads)

Oh, I respectfully have to disagree. There are different kinds of love, and we love different people in different ways all through our lives; those relationships overlap, they exist at the same time, often many relationships of different kinds exist and overlap at the same time. It’s too simplistic to say one can’t love two people at the same time.

If Mr. Young is addressing romantic relationships, I’d like to point out that I can be deeply committed to someone I love very deeply, and as deeply committed to a friend who is a soulmate, just not a sexual partner. For that matter, a committed domestic partnership doesn’t require a consumated sexual element. And further, people are different, they have different needs, and no one individual can possibly fulfill all of any other person’s needs—nor expect that one person to fulfill all of theirs.

Mr. Young’s point of view seems rather narrow and riskily simplistic.

But that’s not what he said.  He said you can’t love two people the same, not that you can’t love two people at the same time.  The relationships are going to be inherently different.

The Daily Beast:
Where do you see Jaime and Cersei headed?
GRRM:
Well, as for the books, I have two more to write. I’m certainly going to be dealing with Jaime. Jaime and Cersei’s relationship is in a very different place in the books than the show has reached now. They are effectively estranged now. Jaime is very angry with Cersei over the stuff that Tyrion told him—that she’s been sleeping with Lancel and the Kettleblacks and Moon Boy. And the Kettleblacks and Moon Boy don’t even exist in the series.
-----------
So, anyone else read this and think, "Well, Cersei's apparently not long for the world"? I even went to the article to verify the quote.

Greetings, fellow Tumblr-ers and friends.

I expect many of you have heard of GISHWHES (the greatest internet scavenger hunt the world has ever seen). If not, I expect the tag is full of things people have done for GISHWHES in the past. It’s an incredibly fun and bizarre week of arts and crafts and conversations that start with, “I have a slightly odd request…” And you should totally join my team, “GISHistas”. There are only a few days left to sign up. Feel free to message me, if you have any questions.

Mom’s birthday

Rosie the Dog: Did you know that it is Mom’s birthday?
Me: Yes, I did.
Rosie: Did you get her a present?
Me: Yes, I did.
Rosie: It is not better than the present I got for her.
Me: I got her something on her list.
Rosie: I do not know what a list is, but the only way you could have gotten her something better is if you got her a WHOLE porcupine and a fawn WITH the legs.
Me:…
Rosie: I got bored and hungry.
Me: Have you given her these gifts?
Rosie: I left them in the driveway, where she will find them. She will love them. They are the best gifts.
Me: Right.

For the record, the gifts were then offered to The Lord of Light, though experience tells us that we are unlikely to have seen the last of them, as they are usually retrieved at least once after burning.
