My friend needs assistance naming her kitten. Her cats have Game of Thrones themed names, based on the show, not the books. So far, the leading contender is Tyrion.
I’m sure we’ve discussed this elsewhere but I’m thinking about buying an instant pot. I am a good cook, but a very lazy one and I don’t like keeping tons of ingredients on hand, doing a lot of prep work, or having a lot to clean up. But I also would like to eat less processed food/frozen pizza and make more food that…
It seems like the Women’s March has been rotten to its core from the very beginning, and is probably corrupt beyond fixing at this point. I tried to pick some key points to screenshot and highlight in this post, but honestly, read the whole damn thing. It’s full of bombshells about anti-Semitism from the very…
So I found out that they no longer require a Facebook account and I downloaded Tinder and Bumble, which is Tinder except men can’t send messages, I guess (also Bumble requires you to write to your ‘matches’ within 24 hours and the chances of me wanting to look at a dating app every 24 hours are nil, so it’s basically…
Open thread, I guess.
TW for DV
This is how I celebrated my birthday today.
I know many GTers were concerned about possible changes to the policy for for changing gender/sex markers on passports so thought I’d let you know that the National Center for Transgender Equality is answering questions live on Twitter until 5:30pm Eastern. Reply to their thread or or use hashtag #NCTEPassports.
I suppose I could have waited for someone to post a Tweet Beat but I’d probably have forgotten by then, and besides I need something to do while I procrastinate on a major project.
NOT EVERYTHING IS ABOUT YOU, MEN. FOR FUCK’S SAKE.
I’m gonna say mine’s a tie between ranch dressing and paper towels. God bless America. EDIT: I FORGOT PEANUT BUTTER. Ranch and paper towels are going to have to settle for a tie for second place.
In case it’s too blurry to read - it’s a ‘stand for the flag kneel for the cross’ shirt, with ‘land of the free’ over the American flag and ‘because of the brave’ over the Irish flag, which is included for some fucking reason because 1. nothing screams ‘Merica! Fuck yeah! like the flag of another country and 2. he…
I posted this on Jezebel, but I’m reposting it here, because I have a lot of professional knowledge on immigration and human trafficking and I’m sick of seeing these two distinct but important issues conflated and confused.
It’s that time of year again - the time when I need to be dressed professionally even when it’s 90 degrees with 80% humidity and I have to spend a quarter of the day outside. I need your help, GT (and hopefully our collective knowledge can help others).
I’d love to hear other people’s smart thoughts on it, if so. I really can’t decide how I feel but I want to talk about it, but I don’t know anyone else who’s listening. Spoilers in comments. TW: If you haven’t listened already, be aware that the podcast literally a long detailed interview with an ISIS member and it…
There’s a mainpage post on this but I can already tell the comments are going to turn into a shitshow so thought I’d post here instead of just sharing. What do you guys think?
I’m hungry but I don’t feel like leaving my hotel room.
