I know there are Tootsie Rolls in here somewhere!

Yesh.
That is totally my generic-yet-familiar name, and this is my logo. I go by some form of this name EVERYWHERE (seriously--try it! If you can't find me, drop the underscore).

I do and make stuff, and sometimes it's even interesting! Nah, seriously--I'm a cosplayer, a crafter of whatever strikes my fancy, and a Homestuck/Sollux/Psiioniic fan (amongst many other things). I also love hugs, bacon, and cats.

I'm really friendly, so don't be afraid to ask me stuff about things--I don't bite! In fact, I'm more likely to dive under a table than attack.

I have two cats slowly chipping away at my sanity with their cuteness, and a loving husband who is less sane than I am (we're all crazy here).

(Awesome art by Osi @ digitallyimpaired.tumblr.com!)

Maybe I'll find something to actually dedicate this blog to, but for now, I'm just gonna hang around and figure out how tumblr works...

WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

It’s a transparent cardinalfish (probably Apogon crassiceps) swallowing an ostracod. When threatened, this type of ostracod release a burst of biolumiscent chemicals to dazzle predators and/or attract their predator’s predators. The transparent cardinalfish is (for obvious reasons) particularly susceptible to this last bit, and so has evolved to spit out this type of ostracod whenever they detect the chemical. There’s a video at the post’s source!

so cool, thank you!

The worst of all possible things that could happen would be to lose that language [that black people love so much]. There are certain things I cannot say without recourse to my language. It’s terrible to think that a child with five different present tenses comes to school to be faced with those books that are less than his own language. And then to be told things about his language, which is him, that are sometimes permanently damaging… This is a really cruel fallout of racism. I know the Standard English. I want to use it to help restore the other language, the lingua franca.

1. He ø runnin. Standard American English (SAE )= He is running.

2. He be runnin. SAE = He is usually running or He will/would be running.

3. He be steady runnin. SAE = He is usually running in an intensive, sustained manner, or He will/would be running in an intensive, sustained manner.

4. He(’s) been/bin runnin. SAE He has been running–at some earlier point, but probably not now.
Other examples: I been knowing her. SAE = I have known her.
About eleven o’clock he been eating. SAE = … he was eating.

5. He BEEN/BIN runnin’. SAE = He has been running for a long time, and still is.
-This is a use of the African American English (AAE) stressed been/remote BIN.

My mother Toni Morrison on AAVE (via howtobeterrell)

this is for whoever was telling me that AAVE isn’t a real thing… UGH

Note how precise each AAVE phrase is.

For anyone who thinks aave is just slang.

It’s rules to this shit.

and I can always tell when it’s a white person being racist and obnoxious, cause they don’t know the grammar!

An important aspect of writing characters of different cultural backgrounds than yours - don’t fall into the trap of using incorrect and insulting stereotypes.

Keep an eye out for how many times a black American character says something like “he be at the grocery store” to wrongly indicate that he is there now, and not showing that he is there often, such as in the case of being an employee.

i love this dumb turtledove like you have an entire backyard where you could find stationary shade but no you decide to chill out in the tiny spot of shade cast by the birdfeeder which moves so quickly that you have to get up every ten minutes why did you make this decision why do you make this decision every day

From our Friends at Autism Women’s Network!

Image description: A square shaped meme with blue and green coloring blended together and the following words in white capital letters: “On this Labor Day, we recognize that close to 30% of adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities who are employed are working in sheltered workshops. 

In sheltered workshops employees:

Make less than the federal minimum wage, often less than $1 per hour
Are often segregated and isolated from the community 
Do not have the benefits of workers’ compensation
Do not have the privilege of collective bargaining
Are exploited and trapped in cycle of poverty. 

Labor is a disability rights civil issue.”

Just when you thought a cat intensely chasing a laser pointer couldn’t get anymore engrossing, along comes an adorable toddler trying to help the cat get that pesky red dot. Prepare for the implosion of the entire Internet.

….

The human caretaker of the cat and child posted video of the encounter to YouTube. “His name is Phineas (2.5 years), the Cat is Muon (about 1 year),” the poster explained. “Phin had never seen the pointer before, and neither had Muon….My child and cat are on the same wavelength.”

in Canada they don’t pronounce Z as "zee"

they pronounce it as "zed" and that is crazy to me

it sounds like they made a typo when they invented it

They do that everywhere in the world that’s not America. We do that here in the UK too.
America is weird man.
