Seriously, 12 straight men acting as gay as humanly possible, I would die.
::facepalms:: Yeah, no thanks. A houseful of cishet men who think they know how gay men act? What could possibly go wrong there.
Cersei has polydactylism, which means she has thumbs, one day I will teach her how to open my beers. #cats #catlady #polydactylcats
It means that Cersei will learn to open her own cans of food, and then you, human, are SOL if she decides you’ve failed one too many times to give her decent head scritchies.
If you’re looking for an awesome rainy day or ‘It’s way too hot to go outside today’ activity, why not have a go at Barbie doll mummification? It’s all kinds of morbid, geeky fun. Heather and her daughter Izzy started with a trip to the library and some research to create an adorably macabre step-by-step “How to Make a Mummy” list. Then the gathered and/or made all the necessary materials. Barbie’s internal organs and ceremonial death mask are paper cutouts. They used a seam ripper in place of the special tool that ancient Egyptians used to pull the brain out through the nose and a shoebox for the sarcophagus and burial chamber. They also included a tiny toy kitty, because they were sacred to the Egyptians and sometimes part of the burial process.

And I thought I was a horrible kid for scalping my Barbies (literally) and hanging them up playing hangman and Inquisitor. Or beheading them and shooting their heads at targets across my room.
Beautiful work! Bless you! This may be the creepiest thing EVER done to a Barbie doll.
George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.
I remember learning about this in school, and being upset that American citizens were treated like criminals for no good reason. I was even more upset to find most of my family had no sympathy for people like George Takei and his family.
The internment of Japanese-American citizens during World War II was an outrage. That it is still brushed under the rug by the media and our educational system is even worse. Fascism wasn’t just something that happened in Europe. It could very well have taken root here, and in many ways it already has.
