Burrowing owls, standing off.
Behind one of the houses I lived in, there was a brushy, overgrown bit of property. We called it the fox-lot because only the wild animals got any use out of it. That's sort of what I'm going for here.

|boyfriend:||When I tell people my girlfriend is Mormon, and they ask me if she wears magic underwear, I need to come up with a better response than, "I don't know, why don't you stick your face in that paper shredder?"|
|me:||You could just ask them what kind of underwear their girlfriend is currently wearing.|
|boyfriend:||I should have clarified, I need a LESS rude response that still points out how insane and inappropriate that question is.|
|me:||But violence is totally rude!|
|boyfriend:||It's not a real threat, you can't actually stick a body part in there.|
|me:||Then maybe you need to invoke a different weapon.|
"Using my own hand as a base material, I considered it a canvas upon which I stitched into the top layer of skin using thread to create the appearance of an incredibly work worn hand. By using the technique of embroidery, traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of it’s opposite, I hope to challenge the pre-conceived notion that ‘women’s work’ is light and easy. Aiming to represent the effects of hard work arising from employment in low paid ancillary jobs such as cleaning, caring, and catering, all traditionally considered to be ‘women’s work’"
A woman’s work is never done
I can’t decide if this is great or a sign of End Times. Probably both.
In Salt Lake City, Utah, Boy Scouts are bringing pizza to county clerk employees who are working through lunch to get as many marriage licenses issued to the hundreds of gay applicants waiting for them.
Prop 8 was only five years ago.
Don’t tell me change can’t happen.
There is an Italian bakery in carroll gardens where you can get a buttered sesame roll, cookie, and coffee for $2 and so I am never leaving.
lifeaquatic asked: You know the elevator!! My hero!! And you work at "The Chron" as we call it?
yes! it’s at the Atlanta Marriott, where I was attending a conference for ‘the chron’ (which we also call it). it really is a surreal Panem-like building.
"McQueen was so generous with the pieces that they let us borrow. We mainly used them on Effie, because it was very fitting for her. The silhouettes and the shapes worked really well for her character. One of the pieces we have is this feathered piece that incorporated twelve feathers painted like monarch butterflies. And the whole dress is made of that. It’s a quite sculpted shape, where the hips kind of come out and the waist goes in high, and the neck is really high, with these three-dimensional butterflies coming off. And then we had a crafts person on our film, a milliner, make her a hat to match.
Ve Neill, who did her makeup, glued little tiny butterflies down her arms—you know, on her skin—so it looked like these butterflies were all over her body. When we were shooting that scene during the reapings, Francis looked at me and he goes, “Look—those butterflies!” There were these two monarch butterflies that flew into the shot, and flew towards Effie. We thought, Oh, my God. Do they think that’s their home? Do they think that’s their people?”
