Also, I worked out three times this week.  So yeah.  That's good and stuff.

Mississippi Personhood Amendment

Originally posted by gabrielleabelle at Mississippi Personhood Amendment
This is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.

Crying like a stupid idiot over the death of someone I don't even know. 

You Creeper.

Never have I been so disturbed and laughed so hard all at the same time. 

This is the polish you are looking for.

 It seems I have a mystery polish on my hands!  I picked it up at Walgreens today.  I can't find anything about it online, except for this picture on some random foreign blog:

It's the purple in the middle, and it's named Amethyst.  It's slightly darker than what the picture shows; kind of a murky/dirty purple creme.  I find it really odd that nobody's posted about this anywhere, yet it's in my dinky Walgreens that never has the polish I'm looking for.  Ever. 8I  +1 for Walgreens!  But it's such a gorgeous polish, asdlsfljf.  It was awesome when I swatched it earlier, so I think it may be my next mani color.  YAY. /endspazz

I got nine polishes today, including the one above.  I may have a problem, but at least it's a pretty one. :U

If you are dating someone who says they aren’t ready to commit, would you wait? How long?

I say give it up; they aren't worth your time at this point.

My sandwich is the best sandwich.  That is all.


 How's it goin', guys?  I feel like I haven't updated in forever.  I've been keeping up with some of you on facebook, but I don't really post too much heavy/RL stuff there.  I guess I'll just bullet this stuff, since I don't have much of anything to say about it besides the fact that it's going on and I need to get it all out.

- Weight loss: Haven't lost a pound.  Surprising n/n?  I just can't find the motivation or energy.

- Brain stuff: I possibly have ADD or ADHD, which would explain why I can't seem to get shit done or focus on anything important.  I have an evaluation appointment on Tuesday, so wish me luck in getting the help/meds I need.

- Job stuff: Still don't have one.  I don't feel like I'd be able to do a good job or even keep a job with the AD(H)D running rampant.

- Home stuff: My mother is on my ass almost every day about the fact that I don't have a job, although it should be clear that I'm in no state of mind for that right now.  She doesn't care, plain and simple, and my blood pressure and stress level have gone through the roof because of it.  When I mentioned my doctor's appointments, she went as far as to question whether I needed such things or not and basically called me a waste of time and money.  It's perfectly okay for my brother to take Adderall just so the teachers don't have to reprimand him at school, but it's not okay for me to need it to FUNCTION during the day?  Keep in mind that a prescription for this medication is $7.  For a month's supply.  SEVEN FUCKING DOLLARS that she can't seem to understand why she should spend on someone who needs it.

- Love life: Nonexistent at the moment, potential drama llamas imminent.  I'm interested in one of my friends.  We had been talking when out of the blue, he refuses to speak to me.  I left him a phone message earlier today inviting him to talk this over with me and clear the air; I really don't want things to be awkward between us.  Hopefully this gets resolved, because I didn't do anything that would give him a reason to act like this.  I'm pretty sure his insecurities have something to do with why he's trying to push me away.   I haven't heard back from him yet, but there's always tomorrow.  I have a sinking feeling that I won't, though.

- Outlook on life: Not the best at the moment.  Mostly baww at the stuff going on above.  I'm just trying to move on with my life and have new experiences/relationships, but I feel like the universe is shoving me backwards.  I feel like there's nothing I can do anymore but curl up into a ball.

And just so this entry isn't a complete bawwfest, have some delicious Mudkip pr0n.

My bbypannsie was a complete darling and made him herself for my birthday.  He has that Pokemon Time look that I absolutely adore, and I love him to pieces already.  I hope you read this, Ren.  You're so important to me and this is one of the few things that I have to look forward to.  It means so much to me that you would take the time to make something so beautiful for me on top of all the stuff you have going on in your life.  You're such an amazing friend. <333

And now it's turned back into a bawwfest; I think I'll stop now. /sniffling forever/

It. Is. Back.

 My life is ready for this.  I just... there are no words.</div></div>
Whoever did this, I love them.  And it gives me ideas.  I need a pony, spray paint, a sharpie, and sculpey, STAT. 8D

Quick request, guys.

Which Pokemon would you most like to see in amigurumi form? Which Pokemon do you think would sell the best in this form?

I don't want to be the type of person who creates a custom of a certain Pokemon JUST because they want one certain member to bid on it like crazy, if that makes sense. I want to make a plush that a few different people would be interested in, but also something that would best showcase my talents in case I would want to open commissions in the future.

My only example so far, if that helps:

Like nobody's seen it before, right? xD

TL;DR: I'm short on collecting cash and would like to crochet something to auction off at pkmncollectors, but I don't have a single clue about which Pokemon would be best for this type of thing.

Help me, flist?
