“Tjis is it, this is why you went to journalism school. At last.”
“I think a lot about what makes a strong female character. You know, movies and TV shows, these things have influence, my own website. So I think the question of “What makes a strong female character?”, often goes misinterpreted. And instead we get these two-dimensional superwomen, who maybe have one quality that’s played up a lot. Like, you know, a Catwoman type, or she plays her sexuality up a lot and it’s seen as power. But they’re not strong characters who happen to be female, they’re completely flat and they’re basically cardboard characters.
The problem with this is that then people expect women to be that easy to understand, and women are mad at themselves for not being that simple. When in actuality, women are complicated. Women are multifaceted. Not because women are crazy, but because people are crazy. And women happen to be people!”

Isn’t it against the law to be this adorable?
It should not be possible to be this adorable :D
I’ll admit it… I’m jealous of her level of adorable.
First: Awwww, thank you. You all make me feel all squishy inside. HOWEVER, there is a huge downsize to looking/acting like a toddler all the time. Mostly, it involves anytime that I forget my ID and want to get booze-y…so, never mind, my problem is not that i look like I am 2 years old, or that I also act like I am 2 years old. It’s that having the attention span of a 2 year old makes me forget my wallet often. Carry on.

These awesome photos are from the 2013 Weston Sand Sculpture Festival on the sandy shores of Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, England. Each year the festival has a different theme and this year’s theme is Hollywood.
“Since the festival started in 2006, themes have included Fairy Tales, The Continents of the World, Under the Ocean, Great Britain, and The Jungle. What began with two Dutch sand sculptors building a giant King Kong from 30 tonnes of sand has now turned into a world famous get-together of some of the niftiest hands in sand sculpting.
More than 20 of the world’s greatest sculptors from nine different countries are working away using 4,000 tonnes of sand from the beach.”
The festival opened on Good Friday and runs through the end of September.
Fact: Geeks make everything awesome.
Case in point: Sand.
