    I rarely use this to just blog. I’m going to just blog now, so you can all just ignore this if it’s not to your liking.

    Warning. Contents under pressure.

  4. Taurus

    My father’s car has not moved since he died. The battery holds no spark and the cabin is a crypt— filled with dust, forgotten memories and lifeless air. 

    It seems to me that the car wants to remain — like a dog pining at the grave of its master. But I am here for the car, and so it must come. I jump the battery, fill the tank and begin the long drive home.

    The radio is unfamiliar to me, and I fumble with the controls in an attempt to break the church silence. I push a button and a cassette tape — forgotten by whoever was in charge of remembering such things — begins playing softly in the background.

    So I watch the mile markers get swallowed by blackness in my rearview mirror, as Patsy Cline sings to me songs of longing and regret; my daughter asleep in the back seat.

    In 400 miles, we will be home.

    #john barrowman is having none of your misogynist bullshit

    i love that barrowman’s response also distances him from the contestant
    "hahahaha women do laundry right john?  you with me, john?"
    "don’t lump me in with you, you fucking martian”

    This is what I’m talking about when I keep saying that men have to deny the endorsement. This guy wanted Barrowman’s tacit support or agreement for his sexism, as part of bonding through humour. John went nope.

    Bolding mine.

  6. Anya and Stella take Wondercon!

    There is that surreal moment when Kelly Sue Deconnick recognizes your daughter from Tumblr and calls her and her sister to the front of the line to take a photo — but I’m ahead of myself.

    We decided to take the girls to Wondercon for spring break this year. We haven’t gone since it left San Francisco, but as the girls’ fandom has grown we thought they would enjoy a “real” con.

    As they walked the floor, they got a lot of nice complements on their costumes. Carol Corps members in particular sought out Stella and got their pictures taken with her, proving once again that they are the best fans in fandom.

    We were in line to get some of our Captain Marvel / Pretty Deadly books signed when Kelly Sue spotted Stella and recognized her from her photos on the Internet. Stella ran over and gave her a high five. Kelly Sue gave both the girls Carol Corps dog tags and came around the table to take a photo with them.

    In all she was every bit as cool and nice in person as she had appeared to be in print and on the Internet. The girls were super happy and I was so glad that I was able to share with them some of the best of what the comic book community has to offer. 

    Thanks to everyone who politely asked to take my girls’ photos and also to those who stopped to allow the girls to take their photo.

    They had a wonderful time, and as a result, so did I.

    Per a client, this is the code you need to make a heading slightly larger than body text.

    The actual text is “Ad Size,” in case you couldn’t find it in there.
