Fandoms, I tell you.
True story. Responding to one of gwynnemeeks' posts, I alluded to a theory I'd been cultivating regarding a show we're both watching. In the following episode, which I just finished watching, my theory was… let's say it was substantiated. Maybe not confirmed, but certainly substantiated.
SO! Did I commit a spoiler?!
Sure, she probably already had the same or a similar theory. But it doesn’t change the fact that I used information revealed in episode 4 to comment on a question about episode 3, and the fact that I hadn’t watched episode 4 at the time doesn’t excuse the fact that it’s possible that my comment which contained information I didn’t know was right may have had a negative effect on the impact of watching the surprise revealed in episode 4.
Oh my god, I just told everyone about there being a surprise in episode 4. Never mind! Carry on!
So, I’ve asked a lot of old people about this, and “accomplishing something worthwhile” is something young people say. When you get older, it’s easier to live in the euphoria of the moment. You’re not pondering the deficiencies of your life when you get old, you’re wishing you could have more of it because breathing is awesome, and sunlight is awesome, and waking up is awesome.
I enjoy all your things, margerykempe. You have excellent, excellent things.
Today’s review of margery’s blog included: Medieval Turkish manuscripts, Korean male models, the anguish of making compromises, Audrey Hepburn eating a pretzel, Pride and Prejudice watercolor fan art, experimental photographs of the moon, and corgis.

For further understanding, see Kathleen Cleaver’s (of the Black Panther Party) interview where she addresses natural hair:
You can follow each of these women on their twitter accounts:
FYI these tweets are in response to this Curly Nikki post & the tweets that followed from @waterlily716
While I think it’s sad that women of color feel they are being intruded upon or not supported by white woman (genuinely, this breaks my heart…), I can’t help but find this movement inspiring. It’s such an obvious and positive thing, and so inherently good and beautiful, and so shocking that we even need such a thing as a natural hair movement, that I can appreciate it and support it in my heart, and take inspiration from these ladies and their efforts, but perhaps from a respectful distance.
My internet is broken. It has been down for six hours. I played a terrible video game until I couldn’t stand it any longer. Then I read a book.
They said it would be fixed at 7, and then they said it would be fixed at 9, and now it is 10.
I guess I’ll go to sleep.
