Somehow, companies specializing in small bras are more rare than the ones that specialize in large bras. 

This site makes me so happy…but now I need the money to buy all the pretty things. 


yeah no

i’m not one of those people that will preach unconditional sex positivity

because some people’s “kinks” are having sex with children

and rubbing their genitals on random people on the train

so na

miss me with the lectures about “kink shaming”

because there is a line

and way too many people cross it

I was tagged by tuckturn!

1) If you could ask God one question, what would it be?

Mosquitoes. Why?

2) What’s a favorite YouTube video that you come back to again and again?

This one. I love watching Mickey and Kelly dance. If I could have one tenth of her balboa skills…

3) If you could wear only one color for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Green. Green is the best color.

4) Would you want to be a colonist of Mars?

No. It’s too far away from everyone.

5) If you were an anime character, what color would your hair be?

Dark purple.

6) What are the top three things you look for in an arch-nemesis?

Hmmm. An arch-nemesis of mine would be irrational/illogical, uncontrolled, and hurt people without thinking. (Basically…the Joker.)

7) When you are in need of inspiration, what do you do?

Go sit outside somewhere.

8) Do you keep plants alive?

If I can make the care part of a routine (like I always water the plant before I brush my teeth at night), maybe. Otherwise, not a chance.

9) What are you procrastinating on right now?

Homework for finance, accounting, and economics.

10) Are you a part of Postcrossing?


11) What is the meaning of life, the universe, and everything?

42. But probably something about loving one another.

My questions:

1. If you had to choose, would you rather be blind or deaf for the rest of your life?

2. What is your favorite book, the one you pick up over and over again?

3. Cats, dogs, or rocks as pets?

4. Do you care about sports?

5. Is your default handwriting cursive, print, or chickenscratch?

6. Can you cook without using a microwave?

7. What’s your singing voice/range like?

8. Who do you call when you’re feeling down?

9. Have you ever given blood?

10. Would you ever go hang gliding?

11. What’s your ideal wristwatch?

I tag thelindyking, if-you-come-a-knockin, sellaphix, apachedanse, lindy-ptx-superwhovian, harvesterofhearts, lindybadger, wickedlilthing, crooked-lust, carsieblanton, wecanthavethat.

1. Deaf. I’ve always had a fascination with Deaf culture and purposely failed Spanish in grade school so I could take ASL. And I need my eyes to see all the cute butts in the world. 

2. If Calvin and Hobbes don’t count, then it would have to be Animal Farm.

3. Dogs. Especially ones from the herding group. With a special weakness for Collies and Corgis.

4. I cared a whole lot about the Olympics when Michael Phelps was in them.

5. Print. And it’s really pretty.

6. I’m a real fake cook. I love cooking and hate using microwaves. I try to make one big meal at least once a week so I have leftovers for the rest of the week.

7.  I don’t sing in front of people. But I like pretending I’m a pop star. 

8. Ghostbusters. (I don’t, phones are weird. Instead, I send messages to friends and we shit talk the people we hate.)

9. “Nope. Needles aren’t my thing,” says the woman with 10 piercings, 2 tats, and plans for at least 5 more.

10. Probably. Skydiving is DJ’s thing though. 

11. My phone. That I keep not on my wrist. I don’t normally wear jewelry. 




1. Always post these rules.

2. Answer the questions from the person who tagged you.

3. Write eleven new questions.

4. Tag eleven people and link them to the post.

5. Actually tell them you tagged them.

1.  What is your quest?

  • Finish grad school and get an awesome job fixing books. Alternatively, win a big ass swing dance contest at an international event like Camp Hollywood or ILHC

2.  Who was your first fictional character crush?

  • Tommy, from Power Rangers, or Eric from The Little Mermaid. It’s a tie.

3.  Is there a place that you haven’t visited that you want to go to?

  • Yeah. Tons. Ireland, Israel, Germany, Egypt, Turkey, Japan. I just want to travel the world. 

4.  People, anything you always have in your purse and/or pockets?

  • Besides my wallet and phone, I keep a little bag in my purse that has bandaids, hair pins, a needle and thread, a charging cord for my phone, perfume, a tampon, and a condom in it. Never know what you’ll need!

5.  What do I have in my pocket?

  • Nothing?

6.  Do you have a favorite painting?

  • I don’t even have a favorite hairbrush. I could never pick a favorite painting, I would end up debating with myself.

7.  If all of the cereal mascots were to enter into a Battle Royale-esque fight, who would be victorious?

  • Tony the Tiger. Dude would just take all those other out of shape crazy jerk down.

8.  Has being on tumblr ruined any fandom for you?

  • Welcome to Nightvale. I actually tried to get into it, but all the stuff from tumblr kept spoiling it and giving me information that made it really hard to enjoy the story. So I gave up. Also, Supernatural. But I just blocked that stuff cause it’s too good to give up on.

9.  Do you sleep with your closet door open or closed?

  • Closed. I ain’t taking that risk

10.  If you’d been able to join Team Rocket in Red or Blue, would you have?

  • Nah. I don’t really want to pal around with a bunch of dudes who think Rattata is a great pokemon for world domination.

11.  What do you burn apart from witches?

  • Candles. I fuckin’ love scented candles. Best part is, my mom is allergic to some of the scents, so it keeps her out of my room if I want some alone time!!!

So, I tag paulidin, madmoonriots, blinkysparkz, followingthewind, reberry, lindybadger, and sailormerry. I can’t think of anyone else. Here’s your questions!!!

  1. How many stuffed animals do you have?
  2. Since you’re all wonderful dancer people, Who do you want to ask you to dance (aka, who do you really want to dance with but can’t cause of distance or nerves or whatever)?
  3. What is the best part about being single vs. being in a relationship?
  4. What is something that is ALWAYS on your grocery list?
  5. What is your favorite article of clothing/ outfit? Tell me why!
  6. Who is a seriously under rated actor or actress?
  7. How many pillows do you sleep with?
  8. What childhood cartoon character do you identify with the most?
  9. What is the best way to respond to an unwanted catcall?
  10. Do you remember your dreams?
  11. If you were transported back in time, how would you fare without the internet?

I’m going to go ahead and say I’m a rule breaker. Whoops. I’ll answer, but I don’t feel like putting forth the effort to come up with new questions and tagging people. Sorry?

1. Currently in my room: 5 on my bed and about 20 on a chair my Grammie gave me. 3 of these are Perry the Platypus, ranging from tiny to supersize. 

2. The only person I’m intimidated to ask to dance would be Michael Jagger. For reasons a few people know but that I’m not going to post because it’s a small world and that doesn’t need to get back to him. But I will answer private asks about it. As for distance, there’s too many people I love dancing with but never get to because of distance and I can’t list all of them. 

3. I’ve been happily in a relationship for 3 years and I still say that I love being single. I know I’m a flirt by default, but I can actually actively flirt when single and there’s nobody to check in with or anything. I DO WHAT I WANT. But I also like being in a relationship because that familiarity is comforting and I don’t like having to explain the whole I’ve been abused and I have a few mental issues over and over. 

4. Cheeses.

5. I love my space cupcake shirt a whole lot. But really, I love all of my clothes a whole lot, it’s why I own things. Because they make me look prettier and my ego is full of itself. A year ago, I would have said my skinny jeans were my fav, but the ass seam fell apart and I cried and I’m still not over it. I still have the jeans because I’m eventually going to go to a tailor and have them make a pattern from the jeans so I can have them forever. 

6.  Kristen Stewart. Mark Ruffalo. 

7. My pillow. I absorb DJ’s pillow when he gets up and we both have body pillows we sleep with. So I sleep with 2 for a few hours and then I have 4. And 2 comforters. 

8. Misty or Ash’s Pikachu. There’s a whole lot of I do what I want and a whole lot of sass and a whole lot of I’m the only person allowed to make fun of my friends, u fckn wot m8.

9. Depends on the catcall. I like when people call me a whore because then I get to tell them that I’m a whore and they STILL couldn’t get me to have sex with them. 

10. Enough to be confused by life.

11. I’d go find Tesla and have him make the internet so it wouldn’t be a problem. And I’d kill Edison because fuck that guy. 



Sung Hee Kim and Ji Hye Park

Someday I should make a “sharing fashion with lindybadger" tag…

Holy hell. 

I’m not sure if I just want to wear what they’re wearing or if I want to be them. But I like these a lot.

It’s 3 in the afternoon and I can’t listen to music on my computer because my roommate wants to sleep. Which he could have done if he didn’t go to bed at 3 in the morning knowing that he has an 8 am class. 

Which I feel really isn’t my problem. I understand having a no noise rule for early mornings and late nights. But 3 pm?

I’m so angry I could cry. 

I’m sorry. I’m glad you’re not more banged up. 






Esther Jones, known by her stage name, “Baby Esther,” was a singer and entertainer of the late 1920s. She performed regularly at The Cotton Club in Harlem. Helen Kane saw her act in 1928 and appropriated Jones’ ‘baby’ singing style for a recording of “I Wanna Be Loved By You.” Jones’ style went on to become the inspiration for the voice of Betty Boop.(What I Looked up)

Today in Black people invented everything you hold near and dear…

There are a few old Betty Boop cartoons on YouTube where she’s actually animated as Black. I’m both incredibly proud & disgusted to finally have names of all of the Black women who shaped so much of American culture after all of these years of being ignored.

Wow I had no idea!! I knew that she was modeled after Helen Kane, but not that Helen Kane copied Esther Jones. I wish there was a video of the original Betty Boop singing…


today I learned Betty Boop is actually black. Thanks white supremacy. Really doing me a solid, living in ignorance and shit.

I looked this up, found a ton of other info and pictures about it that says that none of this is true and I found a colorized picture of her where her skin colour could really go either way… 

So I don’t know what to believe, but this is what I found:

"So, to recap: child pornography — obviously bad. Posting naked photos of women obtained illegally and published without their consent — totally fine, man, why are you so uptight? Reddit, everybody!"




Richard Haste, an NYPD officer, killed an unarmed black teen (Ramarley Graham) in front of his grandmother and 6-year-old brother at point blank range over marijuana. The landlady, Paulet Minzie, 55, ran out the shower with only a towel after hearing the gunshots. Officers then put a gun to her head and told her to put her hands up. It wasn’t until she told them that there were cameras surveilling them, that they put their guns down.

Court papers say “[He\] immediately lowered his weapon. His demeanor completely changed, and he alerted his colleague that they may be on camera,”. The footage later revealed that Graham walked calmly to his apartment followed by police barging in without a warrant, contradicting the officers original claim that the teenager was running away from him. (Source)

Haste was freed on $50,000 bail yesterday after pleading not guilty. Police cheered for him as the parents of Graham wept in the court room.

Crime: Being A Black Teenager.


I’m honestly not sure if the NYPD are part of this country anymore because of the immunity they have to literally everything.

sounds like you have tom jones disease

is it rare?

it’s not unusual

I will never not laugh when I watch this. Stand up routine involving a prank, What’s New Pussycat, and a jukebox.

Your Body Is Beautiful And You Are A G o d d e s s 

i absolutely adore this but aren’t skinny girls in there? some girls have a high metabolism and they stay relly skinny even if they eat a ton. are they not beautiful?


(via butyoucancallmejo)


But you have to understand that when both my cousin and I came out as bisexual to our great-aunt, she told us we were too young to label ourselves.

You have to understand that both of my brothers are gay and came out to her before the ages of 15. She had absolutely no problem.

My great-aunt is a 69 year old lesbian.

You have to understand that not every aspect of biphobia has to do with homophobia.
