Writer's Block: I Quit!

I would actually thank my boss (Not all bosses are cruel, heartless people who enjoy the misery of their subordinates). He's an awesome guy who is willing to work around my hectic college schedule. He's not even supposed to schedule me since I'm only a substitute and I'm supposed to be rotated around the Westside area branches but he pulls some strings to get me at his branch at least twice a week. I couldn't ask for a better boss.

The only thing I have to complain about: Stop offering delicious food! I'm gaining weight since I started working for you. I almost don't like going to the breakroom because of the bagels, Girl Scout cookies, pizza, cupcakes, popcorn and other food that's there. When you say "Go ahead, help yourself to what we have in the kitchen!" that's just signing a death sentence to my thighs.

Writer's Block: Girl Scouts' Day

ALL OF THEM!!!

There is no such thing as a bad Girl Scout cookie flavor.

This weekend a group of Girl Scouts were selling cookies right in front of the library where I work at. I ended up buying twelve boxes of different flavors for my family, my friends, my co-workers and myself :-)

I do have to say I am fond of Thin Mints but only Thin Mints that have been refrigerated. They taste extra delicious when the chocolate is cold and paired with a glass of cold milk....... I'm going to cut this post short and go get me some Thin Mints :-D

Writer's Block: TMI

What is the strangest thing someone has confessed to you?
My ex-boyfriend once confessed to me "I'm into tentacle porn."

... what the hell are you supposed to say to that?

Tarot Card Test



You are The High Priestess


Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.


The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

Black March - Thursday March 1st 2012 to Saturday March 31st 2012 With the continuing campaigns for internet-censoring litigation such as SOPA and PIPA, and the closure of sites like Megaupload under allegations of 'piracy' and 'conspiracy' the time has come to take a stand against music, film, and media companies' lobbyists. The only way is to hit them where it hurts. Their profit margins. March 2012 is the end of the First Quarter in economic reports world wide. Do not buy a single record. Do not download a single song, legally or illegally. Do not go to see a single film in cinemas, or download a copy. Do not buy a DVD in the stores. Do not buy a videogame. Do not buy a single book or magazine. Wait the four weeks to buy them in April: see a film later, etc... Holding out for just four weeks, maximum, will leave a gaping hole in media companies profits for the first quarter, an economic hit which will in turn be observed by governments world wide as stocks and shares will blip from a large enough loss of incomes. This action will give a statement of intent: "We will not tolerate the Media Industries' lobbying for legislation that will censor the internet."
Original image and campaign source: reddit.

Edited to add my own thoughts (not part of the original reddit call for action) And if you do not feel like taking a total break and perhaps want just a trial separation or couple's counseling, then perhaps consider Black March Lite 2.0 = spend, but spend money on those content creators and independent retailers who came out against SOPA/PIPA.  And tell them why you're buying their products in March.  There are many of them.

And for those who favor the more targeted boycott, you can find info  here.  But no matter which,  you can participate and you can tailor your level of participation.  We have the tools, the will and the strength to take a stand.

SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA

Originally posted by darkspirited1at SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA
This comes from an article by rachelmanijaentitled, Say Yes to Gay YA.
(click the link for the full article)

Our novel Stranger has five viewpoint characters; one, Yuki Nakamura, is
gay and has a boyfriend. Yuki's romance, like the heterosexual ones in
the novel, involves nothing more explicit than kissing.

An agent from a major agency, one which represents a bestselling YA novel in the same genre as ours, called us.

The agent offered to sign us on the condition that we make the gay
character straight, or else remove his viewpoint and all references to
his sexual orientation.


This isn't about that specific agent; we'd gotten other rewrite requests before this one. Previous agents had also offered to take a second look if we did rewrites… including cutting the viewpoint of Yuki, the gay character.


It's time to stand up and demand change. Spread the word everywhere if you are just as angry and outraged by this.

SF Book Meme

A meme yanked from misslucyjane: (Original here at http://misslucyjane.livejournal.com/2862052.html#cutid1)

Bold if you've read, italicize ones you fully intend to read and underline if it's a series you've read part but not all of or books that you started but didn't finish.
