We didn’t know that our activism and our peaceful displays would result in guns literally looking down our eyes. Literally looking down our eyes. Guns.
And I had young people who were willing to die. For justice.
I had a young person — and he’s definitely the example of many young people that I represent who said "I didn’t think I would make it to twenty-one years old so I’m ready to die now. Let’s do it now."
State senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal (@MariaChappelleN) speaks on the Senate floor about the events she witnessed in Ferguson, Missouri in the weeks following the execution of Mike Brown. Senator Chappelle-Nadal was one of many protesters tear gassed for three hours without reprieve by the Ferguson PD.
She has been consistent and unrelenting in her criticism of Governor Jay Nixon — to the point of tweeting him “FUCK you, Governor!” — for his lack of action over the violation of citizens’ constitutional right to peacefully protest, and passionately vocal about the violent ways in which protesters were abused by the police.

jeikugryphon discussing the low quality Bleach stream we’ve been watching.
He did amend that, though - conceding that Ichigo is not the most angsty character in that anime.

We switched internet providers to one that advertised a global access thing, to be able to access region locked sites.
So we now have access to Netflix back!

P.S. A lot of people with depression and other mental illnesses have trouble making decisions or choosing from a bunch of different options. “Wanna get dinner at that pizza place on Tuesday night?” is a LOT easier to answer than “So wanna hang out sometime? What do you want to do?”

*overwhelming urge to write and flood of inspiration at 2 am while all other household members are asleep and there’s no possible way to do it without disturbing someone*

There were only 3 cats there and none were quite right. None were very friendly, mostly very independent. Not really what I’m looking for. So no cat today

I’m not sure we’ll be bringing a cat HOME today, but I want to go look. Jake and I discussed getting a cat, but had ultimately decided no because it wouldn’t be the only pet in the house (one other cat and a tiny dog). But his mum suggested it as well so we’re revisiting the idea. Apparently the current cat, Ombre, does get on fine with some of the other neighborhood cats (even allowing one to come in and eat her food!) and the dog is small and nonthreatening. We think a cat who’s used to being around other animals would be a fine addition.
And it would be good for me, I think. So off we go to the local shelter. They have a couple cats listed on their website who might be good fits.
