Kiddo’s first birthday, my first Mother’s Day. Lei from hawaiiflowerlei.com.
A little over a year ago, I made the decision to be a single mother by choice by way of adoption. I began the process in March and hope to bring my baby(ies) home by summer of 2014 with your help! <3
This is my good friend’s adoption fund. If you are able, please donate to help her bring he babies home! If not, then please share - maybe someone you know can help.
Ok, snake people and herpetologists near Spokane WA, this snake here is in a bit of a dilemma. Apparently, some asshole abandoned or released this 11 foot albino reticulated python, which was then discovered in an apartment, underweight and with burns on it from trying to wrap around a heater to escape from the cold.
The city has nowhere to put this animal, the owner isn’t likely to come get her, and unless someone steps up she’s going to be euthanized after the time window has passed.
I’d imagine a snake of this size and color must be worth something to SOMEbody out there, and she seems to be pretty tame, as the article didn’t mention her lashing out at any of the people trying to rescue her during this ordeal. So, snake owners, herpetologists, breeders, collectors, anyone out there with room for her, would you give this poor thing a chance?
Signal boosting. Would they ship to TX? Lol.
Guys, please signal boost. Everyone does it for dogs and cats, but our reptile friends deserve a chance too.
It’s that time of year again!
Halloween is my Christmas. It always has been, for as long as I could understand what it was.
When I was a very wee lass, like back in the 70’s, I lamented to my Dad that, while there were so many Christmas carols, there were no carols for my favorite holiday: Halloween. So my Dad, singer/songwriter that he was, decided to write and record one for me. Lyrics are by Jimmy and Judy Dee (my parents) and music is by Jimmy Dee. This is just a Halloween carol, and does nothing to showcase the amazing voice and range he had. I hope someone out there will get a kick out of this adorable ode to Halloween.

It’s that time of year again, when I re-post the Halloween poem I wrote on HitRECord two years ago. It’s one of my favorite things that I’ve ever written.
in the goldening leaves and the shortening days
we wandered all wond’ring up to the corn maze
lit only by our jack o’lantern’s carved grin
we twined our cold fingers and found our way in
we wended our way, all watchless and glad,
toward the heart of the labyrinth, just me and my lad…
this is a parody of blurred lines made by a group of law students in new zealand. the original video was pulled off of youtube (which had reached over 300,000 views) because it was flagged as inappropriate.
I guess we’d better make sure it gets just as many, if not MORE, views here on Tumblr, then.
Another thing that really irritates me about Robin Thicke and the Blurred Lines thing is how he insists that he’s somehow helping feminism. I guaren-damn-tee that if he saw this video or any of the other parodies calling his rapey ass out, he’d be all, “Oh, yeah I meant for this to happen, I was trying to get people to talk about consent because I respect women! I respect them so much that I had to degrade them to show them how degrading it is. Just making people think.”
I really hate it when someone does some bigoted and sexist thing to a group of people and then says, “But it got people talking about the issue!”
People were talking about the issue before your stupid ass came along! And guess what else? We were talking about it without adding to the problem! We really didn’t need your ignorance to help us out, thanks!
This goes for any social issue, like comedians who, for instance, tell racist “jokes” to “get people thinking.”
No one needs you to help people think, thank you! And for the most part, all people are thinking is “Huh huh, COOL.” Which is the opposite of helpful.
