On Interview With a Feminist Mormon

@ms. alex I think it's a different one, but I do have female friends who were given the pamphlet linked to above because their bishops didn't have anything for girls.

On Interview With a Feminist Mormon

I grew up Mormon and was a feminist Mormon for a while, but I just couldn't do it. I eventually left the church when I was 22 and no longer believe in god. I have a lot of respect for the ladies who stay and try to make it work and try to improve the religion, because it's so resistant to change. I wish I could've been able to help make it better for girls who grow up in the church, but once I stopped believing I couldn't invest anymore. I had to disengage.

Also, that recovery manual? As far as I know, it's still only directed towards boys because girls don't have icky sexual feelings. Yeah, that really screwed me up.
EDIT: Found it. Titled "To Young Men Only." There might be pamphlets out there, though.

On Wendy Davis's Beat the Heat Cocktails

@ms. alex Also Grapefruit Izze is a good way to use up that vodka that you bought to make pie crust but it turned out to be a big disappointment but you don't like vodka so maybe you'll make vanilla extract but then can't find vanilla beans anywhere.

On Wendy Davis's Beat the Heat Cocktails

@mannequinhands God La Croix is the greatest. I've been trying to be frugal and not buy it anymore because it's water and I don't need to buy water, but I miss it so.

On

I love this! It kind of reminds me of Another Earth. And Melancholia. Although the more it reminds me of those movies, the more glad I am that I don't live on a planet without another huge one close by.

On Here Is a Two-Headed Turtle Named Thelma and Louise

If I am ever responsible enough to have a pet, I want to go the turtle route.

On The Marriage Pie

We didn't register for anything because we moved across the country w/ a Uhaul trailer immediately after our honeymoon. Even though I really like kitchen stuff, I never really think about how I missed out on an opportunity to get a bunch of stuff. And then I see a chart like this and it all comes crashing down on me: I could have gotten a stand mixer.

Oh man, the pink grapefruit margarita pin is a dead link. I would drink the hell out of a grapefruit margarita. (Or any other grapefruit cocktail, really. Even ones with vodka.)
