Pronouns: she/her (but also happy with they/theirs)


Knitting Inspiration: hoods. Like, fairy tale hoods. I read somewhere that “capes are in” this year and, while I don’t give a flying fuck about that sort of thing, it does mean that suddenly all these fetching hooded capelet/shawl things are sprouting like mushrooms. (Get it? Mushrooms? Fairy rings….fairy tales? You’re right, that was a bit of a stretch.)

I’m particularly drawn to ones that are heavily textured or almost insubstantial. There was a thing with hooded scarves a few years back that I never really committed to; having seen these more voluminous alternatives, I suddenly understand why I waited. Unlike hoodies, which are ubiquitously casual to the point where I refuse to wear them, and hooded scarves, which make me think of kids who can’t be trusted to not lose individual cold weather items and are thus given a combination mittens/hood/scarf thing, these are poised somewhere between little kid make-believe and massive sophistication. I also suspect that they won’t cause hat hair, although I might have to line them to prevent unfortunate bobby pin accidents.

They are wrong. I would totally read that fic.

"I’d made it to 60 without having sex with a man and a ‘walk on the wild side’ at this age seemed unlikely to anyone who knows me," Picardo says in court documents obtained by TMZ.


"14-year-old Parkview High School Freshman, Caleb Christian was concerned about the number of incidents of police abuse in the news.  Still, he knew there were many good police officers in various communities, but had no way of figuring out which communities were highly rated and which were not.  

So, together with his two older sisters: Parkview High School senior Ima Christian, and Gwinnett School of Math, Science, and Technology sophomore, Asha Christian, they founded a mobile app development company– Pinetart Inc., under which they created a mobile app called Five-O.

Five-O, allows citizens to enter the details of every interaction with a police officer.  It also allows them to rate that officer in terms of courtesy and professionalism and provides the ability to enter a short description of what transpired.  These details are captured for every county in the United States. Citizen race and age information data is also captured.

Additionally, Five-O allows citizens to store the details of each encounter with law enforcement; this provides convenient access to critical information needed for legal action or commendation.”

Trask’s Guide to Trek

Go in the chronological order that the series were released.

  • The Original Series (Captain Kirk)
  • The Next Generation (Captain Picard)
  • Deep Space Nine (The Sisko)
  • Voyager (Captain Janeway)
  • Enterprise (Captain Archer)

And watch it like this:

  • Watch the entire Original Series, for there are essential quotes and Roddenberryisms even in the cheeziest of episodes. Also endless Kirk/Spock/Bones sass. (also the minor characters are really awesome like you don’t wanna miss a second of that)
  • TNG is probably the most known Star Trek, but by no means is it the best. I say pick your way through this one, using Memory Alpha as a guide. Don’t miss any episodes with the Soong Family, Romulans, or the Borg though, because they are some of the best. Also watch EVERY SINGLE EPISODE featuring Cardassians and/or Bajorans to prepare for Deep Space Nine. There are ‘essential episodes of Trek’ guides online, so just watch whatever’s on there too because they’re usually quite accurate.
  • Watch all of Deep Space Nine because it has some of the richest character development and most linear plot lines of Star Trek. Also, be prepared to question the Federation ideals put forward in The Original Series and The Next Generation, for that’s exactly what DS9 does. DS9 is the more action-y of the Star Trek series as well, for the Dominion War plot arcs bring with them plenty of space battles and fighting on the planet’s surface. Also, be prepared to fall in love with a certain Cardassian tailor and his Starfleet Doctor “friend”…
  • Feel free to skip through Voyager like you did with TNG, however I recommend only doing that through the first 3 seasons and then watching from the beginning of Season 4 onwards for the fantastic addition of Seven of Nine. Her character development is fascinating to watch and with it brings plenty of Borg conflict. (also she and Janeway have ridiculous chemistry like OH MY FUCKING GOD)
  • There are only four seasons of Enterprise so I recommend watching that in its’ entirety. While it is probably (and sadly) Trek’s most reviled series, it’s a fascinating look at pre-Federation existence. The ship’s doctor, a Denobulan named Phlox, is awesome and there’s a beagle. It’s also the more lighthearted of the Treks and is a nice pick-me-up after the darker events of DS9 and Voyager.

If you want more options on how to watch Star Trek, Frontier001 has a guide to multiple different watch orders here that include all the movies, which I did not address in this post.


And, as always,





Sulu and McCoy have a picnic with Alice, the White Rabbit, and a two-headed dragon. THAT IS JUST HOW SHIT GOES DOWN ON THE ANIMATED SERIES.

Invictus - William Ernest Henley

(via outerspace-innerspace)

Hemingway and James Joyce were drinking buddies in Paris. Joyce was thin and bespectacled; Hemingway was tall and strapping. When they went out Joyce would get drunk, pick a fight with a bigger guy in the bar and then hide behind Hemingway and yell, “Deal with him, Hemingway. Deal with him.”

Between this and the story about him reassuring F. Scott Fitzgerald re dick size, I’m developing a picture of Hemingway as the mother hen of the disaffected white male literary set of the early 20th century.

He probably called up Steinbeck sometimes and was like I CAN’T EVEN WITH THESE DIPSHITS and Steinbeck was all “That’s what you get for living in Paris, asshole”.

Hemingway also helped Salinger get through World War II.
