When a financial institution asks me my “mother’s maiden name” as a security question. Because it’s assumed that I have at least one and no more than one mother in my life AND that she married AND that she gave up her own name AND that that part of her identity was erased enough from my public history so as to be a password to access my private information.
‘Glee’ actress Lea Michele was seemingly dissed by Jessica Lange on the red carpet. Is the public’s derision towards the ‘Glee’ star aimed at a woman deemed too perfect and in control?
Really interesting article about how the public perceives Lea Michele.
I think what’s really “annoying” to them is that Lea doesn’t fight back, she just keeps doing her thing, doesn’t let those insignificant things rain on her parade. And that bothers petty people. A lot.
There’s a person (who I really like as a person!) at work and on the building’s celebrations committee (which organizes fun, building-wide activities every month), who is reallllly involved with just about every philanthropic or volunteer activity the Salvation Army has. And it filters into the type of activities that the building does (school supply drive for the salvation army’s school supply distribution, sign ups to do bell ringing with coworkers, etc.) and the monthly activities are so fun when they’re not that! And I hate not saying anything about why I won’t support the Salvation Army. And I hate explaining over and over about why I won’t support the Salvation Army. And I hate that most people forget that the Salvation Army is a church and thus don’t blink at it being brought into the workplace in such a sweeping fashion. I wish there were a way for this shit to be less exhausting. I hate rationing how much I’m capable of caring on any given day without harming myself.
Let’s fill our blogs with ladies! Make a list of your top ten female characters, and write ONE word that describes the trait you admire the most about them. Tag ten friends, including me, and spread the love.
Buffy Summers - loving Rachel Berry - driven Mercedes Jones - kind Alice (of Wonderland) - brash Laura Palmer - defiant Joan Watson - self-respectful Nancy Thompson - intuitive Tiffany Aching - selfish Hermione Granger - keen Cordelia Chase - committed
Whoops I lost count and listed eleven and then didn’t want to cut anybody.
C.J. Cregg: leader Donna Moss: bold Ainsley Hayes: clear-sighted (alternatively—heady, nervy, intellectually exciting) Hermione Granger: devoted Rachel Berry: determined Mia Thermopolis: courageous Rory Gilmore: daughter Shania Clemmons: herself Joan Watson: equanimous Murphy Brown: unapologetic Heather Wells: Fuck it. She wrote a song called, “You Can Buy Biscoff Online,” and she solves murders. What’s not to admire???
I officially tag everyone who sees this and starts to think about what their list would be! Because it’s an awesome exercise and I want to see alllll the lists.
The genius creator behind Glee and American Horror Story confirmed to E! News that he had his second baby via surrogate Friday.
"His name is Ford. I brought him home today from the hospital and Logan gave him kind of a side eye," he exclusively told E! News at the American Horror Story: Freak Show premiere in Hollywood. "For 21 months, Logan has been the light of my life and now there are two."
Murphy and husband David Miller are already proud parents to an adorable baby boy named Logan. The couple welcomed their first child on Christmas Eve in 2012.
"It’s amazing to be two dads and we have a wonderful surrogate," Murphy shared. "It’s so uplifting and I’ve enjoyed sharing our story with young gay families."
I have a new phone and it’s pretty great except for the part where itunes seems to refuse to believe that I actually want to sync all 3269 of my ebooks onto it. It cancels sync after it adds about fifty more each time i sync it. This is gonna take a while.
