Scarlett Johansson for the Huffington Post [x]

My gender expression is varied enough day to day that sometimes I feel like it would be easier if the decision was just taken out of my hands.
Today I am a non-binary sophisticate otter
Heh. I’m a ‘questioning queerdo cumberbatch’. Didn’t know that ‘cumberbatch’ was an orientation. Disappointed there isn’t a ‘quinto’ in there.
A coconut octopus.
Looks like she’s been to Vegas. :-)
For about $12, Sprint will soon let subscribers buy a wireless plan that only connects to Facebook.
For that same price, they could choose instead to connect only with Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest—or for $10 more, enjoy unlimited use of all four. Another $5 gets them unlimited streaming of a music app of their choice.
Other apps might be added in the future, he said. For now, customers can only choose between those four apps, and they’d need a data plan in order to access anything else. The apps were chosen by Sprint because they’re the most heavily used.
So it begins.
Nah. I’ll pay what I am paying now to connect to EVERYTHING. Having the world in your pocket is a cool thing.
That’s interesting. Why would you caution against it for spirit sigils?
(I’ve never used a sigil for a spirit, so I know next to nothing about the hows and whys of it).
Sigils used in the process of evocation - or put on talismans which act as a foundation for the spirit’s actions - are a means of empowerment for the spirit to interact with your life. Marring them, or destroying them, destroys the link between you and the spirit.
Generally, once they’ve been activated, they’re to be hidden in a safe place and kept until the procedure you’ve begun is finished. You certainly want to keep said sigil out of sight of non-practitioners or those uninvolved until the work is accomplished, because while you and the spirit have made a deal, it might choose to act in a hostile manner or obsess an outsider. You’ll typically give a new spirit you’re dealing with a time limit in which to accomplish a task, at which point it will be given something in return (ranging from a piece of art or something like that, or a bottle of good booze, etc.), or if they’ve been deceiving you about what they can/will do, you’ll use the sigil as part of the process of dismissing them and obliterating the link.
The continuing adventures of “Inoni watches Star Trek” — on to The Next Generation!
Aheh, yeah, I cherry-picked TOS episodes and then skipped ahead. ^_^;; Even now I’ll admit I’m not watching everything (found viewing suggestions for the first two seasons of TNG, which I have been led to…
That was harsh. It happened before the Internet, but I still heard the wails of “WTF?!?” from the UK, where I was stationed.
WHEN VOICE ACTORS COSPLAY AS THEIR CHARACTERS THE ANGELS SING
OH MY GOD
KILL ME I’M GONE
I HIT THE REBLOG BUTTON SO FAST I’M SURPRISED I DIDN’T BREAK IT
I think she made her mama proud
She should go trick-or-treating with Nathan Fillion in his Mal cosplay from Castle.
I would give them all the candy.
ALL THE CANDY.
Although I have to point out that there was a piece of speculative science fiction called The Blazing World published by one Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1666, slightly predating Mary Shelley.
This is the thing. Women have been doing awesome shit since there was awesome shit to do, we’ve BEEN THERE, if anyone bothered to look.
Oh, they looked. And then maliciously and willfully erased us from the books to keep anyone else from “getting ideas.”
Hell, the first named author in history? Enheduanna, a Sumerian high priestess, poet and lyricist. She’s known as the Shakespeare of Sumerian literature.
