Look! My new toy finally arrived!

Look! My new toy finally arrived!

I kind of want this keyboard, even though the Japanese-speaking Colonel says it looks hard to use!
P.S. The fried drumstick mouse and flash drive are a little disturbing …

September is LIBRARY CARD SIGN-UP MONTH! If you don’t currently have a library card, please get one! It’s amazing what you have access to with a little piece of plastic! Of course, you can check out books, DVDs, audiobooks, and magazines. But did you know you can also access digital magazines, language classes, and databases? You can even download (and keep!) five songs per week. The library touches my life in some way almost everyday of my life and I’m so grateful!

23 Female Cartoonists On Drawing Their Bodies -

“I look forward to the time when honest depictions of women’s bodies are a normal thing to look at, instead of some kind of statement.”—Anya Ulinich

“At their best, autobiographical stories allow us to experience empathy for others and perhaps learn something new about ourselves. If that’s empowering young female creators to talk openly about their lives (sexual and otherwise), great. If that’s opening a window for dialogue about the female experience in the context of a largely white, male-dominated field? Also great.” —Lucy Bellwood

“In my early comics, all of my girl characters were super idealized and cute — they looked how I wished I could look.” —Megan Kelso

“I like to have fun with conventional images of what ‘beautiful’ and ‘feminine’ mean to this culture… I think many women have a lot of ambiguity about their self image.” —Roberta Gregory

Who is the most amazing woman who ever lived. -

robinlafevers:

celebrenithil:

I’m not done reading the list of amazing women people have contributed, but it is such a great - and IMPORTANT - thread that everyone should read.

Historical women! Women scientists! Women leaders! Women of color! Women with disabilities! Women fighting in wars and kicking butts and taking names and saving lives and freeing themselves and others and making music and taking lovers and taking care of children and spearheading revolutions and living to old age or dying for their causes (◡‿◡✿)

And also, keep that link so that every time you stumble upon one of those douchecanoes saying “what have women ever done??”, link them to it and just RUB THEIR FACES IN IT UNTIL THEY BLEED

(✿)

Always reblog amazing women.
