*squeals* MY OVARIES CAN’T TAKE THE CUTENESS
Seriously..tumblr for real? we’ve had this discussion. I’m not ready for a baby
This is how I know kids aren’t for me..I see this picture and I just think: “oh, babies *shrug*”
I don’t feel any squees. My ovaries don’t even twitch.
Cover reveal for Ascension. It’s gorgeous and I couldn’t be happier with it. I hope you love it too!

I had to reblog and add the cover copy, because OMG:
Alana Quick is the best damned sky surgeon in Heliodor City, but repairing starship engines barely pays the bills. When the desperate crew of a cargo vessel stops by her shipyard looking for her spiritually-advanced sister Nova, Alana stows away. Maybe her boldness will land her a long-term gig on the crew. But the Tangled Axon proves to be more than star-watching and plasma coils. The chief engineer thinks he’s a wolf. The pilot fades in and out of existence. The captain is all blond hair, boots, and ego… and Alana can’t keep her eyes off her. But there’s little time for romance: Nova’s in danger and someone will do anything - even destroying planets - to get their hands on her!
My prayers have been answered: Space opera with queer women of color!!
I feel like every man who has ever tried to convince me to take some rando shouting “Hey girl, nice ass” at me as a compliment sees it this way: You’re sitting outside some Italian café in a Betty Draper dress sipping a prosecco when all of a sudden your dainty neck scarf flies off in the light breeze. Joseph Gordon Levitt, wearing a linen suit with a pocket square and no socks with his penny loafers, steps off his Vespa and hands it to you while saying something witty about how it’s almost as beautiful as you are. You then both ride off into the sunset, laughing as Dean Martin plays in the background and the director yells cut on the espresso commercial that is your life.
In reality, it’s you getting yelled at by a bunch of sweaty men standing outside a bar at eight in the morning, telling you about how fuckable you look in your sweatpants when you’re just trying to get a bottle of milk in peace like a goddamn human being. And it is the opposite of a compliment.
“After this I go to work at a pizza shop. My wife and I were college professors in Bangladesh. I taught accounting. But one dollar in America becomes eighty dollars when we send it back home.”
People forget, when immigrants come to this country they start from scratch. They could have been lawyers in their home country, but in the US..it means nothing. You think a HS diploma from Bangladesh means anything in this country? My mom was a top student in her home country, went to all the best schools and got the best of everything…but when she got here it meant squat and she was cleaning other people’s homes and scrubbing their toilets. This is why I get pissed of when people talk smack about immigrants. They at least are doing something…..heading for a goal..making sacrifices…what are you doing with your life?
I did not get a car till I was 23 and living on my own. Every time I asked my mom for any she said the same thing: “Get a job”
Me: “Can we get cable (also did not have till I was 23 and living on my own)?”
Mom: “Sure, when you get a job”
Me: “But you have cable on the tv in your bedroom!?”
Mom: *pulls out piece of paper* “See this, this is a check….from my job”
Even if I am rich…my kids will be treated the same way. This is my money…you aint got shit around here. You want a car? You old enough to get a job and buy one your damn self.
sorry not sorry
This makes me want to start reblogging porn. A lot.
Just reblog all my porn Kristi, I do enough for most
1 in 6? That’s generous. I’m pretty sure every blog has adult content SOMEWHERE on it.
What’s a porn?
my blog doesnt have porn on it
I keep an entire blog of JUST porn. O_O Why is this a problem though? That’s what I don’t understand.
“Tumblr’s Porn Habit”
idk why this makes me laugh so hard. They make tumblr sound like the misfit, emo cousin of the social networking family
Here is the point of the article after all the other BS speculation in it:
“What ultimately helped bring down MySpace, TheGlobe, GeoCities and other earlier social networks is that national advertisers were simply unwilling to risk having their brands appearing alongside adult, racist, or other questionable content,” PrivCo founder and CEO Sam Hamadeh said in a research note.”
So it is about money as all things…if they want to make money of tumblr it stands to guess there will be ads….and then it might be an issue is there is porn. But the article is speculatin on what issues yahoo might have and what they might do…there is no actual clarification from Yahoo themselves. So..again…wait and see.
You know something I find out everyday about Tumblr users? Most of ya”ll are real gullible.
You know this and that other tweet about making Tumblr “family friendly” are fake right? All you have to do is go on the Yahoo twitter….
Carolyn Hax, 6 May 2013:Dear Carolyn, My wife is an avid reader and enjoys a lot of different types of books. Among them are series usually geared toward teenagers, like “The Hunger Games” or “Twilight.” Before the premiere of the latest movie, she rereads the series and then goes to the midnight showing with a group of girlfriends. I am not talking about teenagers here, or even people in their 20s. We are in our 30s and both professionals. I think my wife’s interest in these books and movies is juvenile, and I don’t really understand it. I feel mildly embarrassed that she can talk (in detail!) to my nieces about these books at holiday gatherings. My wife thinks that her reading selection is her business only and that these books provide a nice relief from everyday problems. I can see her point, but on the other hand, I’m not sure why she can’t get the same thing from adult literature. Who is the odd one here, me or my wife? Anonymous
Your wife is an immature, unprofessional dolt who sadly gets along better with teenagers than with smart, classy, well-adjusted adults who rightly ascertain that literally nothing can define a person more than the fact that they occasionally read teen fiction.
There is no way any media directed at one interest group has one iota of an iota of an iota of a speck of anything remotely edifying, pleasant or distracting to offer to another interest group, which is why Harry Potter was such a flop, all kids hate Lord Of The Rings and a woman wrote The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
The fact that your wife thinks she’s reading for her own pleasure rather than for yours is deeply disconcerting. The sooner this proletarian nitwit realizes that she has displeased Sir Husband, Arbiter of Taste In This Household Young Lady, the better. Gift her a nice Franzen box set, a fresh copy of Infinite Jest or the complete works of Dave Eggers, so that she may better learn to center her recreational reading around fictional middle-aged white men instead of fictional people who aren’t as important and interesting as they are.
Nothing irritates me more than Book Snobs (close second, music snobs). I met so many working in a bookstore: “I only read important Literature, none of those teen books, or things with magic in it” *nose in air* Or the one that won’t allow their kids to read what they want, because they have a stick up their butt (had one parent come in specifically to find something for her kids because they did not read much but :”I don’t want him reading any of those silly things, just important books”). You should be happy your kid enjoys reading! If your male child wants to read Teen Romance, leave him be. You be miserable by your damn self..no need to drag other people into it.
