I'm just another fat spoonie tryingt o make it through.  Have you checked out my project: PrettySickArt.tumblr.com?

I am currently sitting in my car in the driveway with the lights off, air on and Window down. I am armed with a spray bottle filled with Apple cider vinegar.

.
Why you ask? Well in order to spray raccoons if they come up to try and eat the food we put out for the stray cats.
.
And why am I performing this nightly ritual instead of kris who usually takes on this ludicrous task? Because I love her and she’s still stuck with j at the hospital and I don’t want her to have to do it when she eventually gets home.
.
However I still think this is the stupidest waste of time ever, and quite frankly, I’d rather just STOP putting food out altogether. But it’s not my call, so here I sit. Talk about a labor of love.

I have to say though, while I had it on: that green dress looked fucking amazeballs on me.  I wish I could have gotten a photo.  It was boobalicious for one (something that can rarely be said about my chest), and the cut and design of it were super flattering (not something I always care about but I needed the go boost today).

Definitely a good buy.  I’ll try to get pics the next time I wear it.

Kris’ friend J (older lady with dementia who lives in an assisted living place a few streets away and who has Kris as an executor of her estate) is going to the ER and the home called Kris (because that’s who they call).  And I feel badly because Kris is heading up to go be with her and all I can think is… thank god I have the house to myself for the next few hours.

.

Like, I was resting, and now I’m up.  I’m going to go to Albertsons, get a chicken, and some ice cream and maybe a salad too.  Come home, eat, relax, then feed the animals, then eat my ice cream and watch Snowpiercer (it’s on amazon fro a $6.99 rental) and try to sort of… reset my head.

.

But I feel like a terrible person because, while I am sorry J is sick enough to be headed to the ER, I’m so relieved to have the house to myself it’s ridiculous.

.

I just.. .my head is in such a bad place right now.  Worse than in a long time.  Body image and weight issues abound (I’m having a really hard time eating because every time I take a bite of something I feel… like I shouldn’t be eating.  And it doesn’t help that I don’t *WANT*… anything. Like, nothing sounds good to me ever these days.  I ate half of what I usually do at lunch (and that’s not usually that much anyway)… the only reason i’m going the chicken and ice cream route is because it’s a comfort food meal for me- I guess I’m hoping it’ll be good enough to actually … eat..

.

I’m just.. I’m in this really heavy headspace and I feel really overwhelmed and tired and this flare has been really REALLY bad which just makes it that much harder to sort out my physical issues from my mental/emotional ones and.. :sigh:

.

TMI guys, sorry.  Nobody cares about all that shit.
Maybe after a night to myself, a decent meal, some sleep.. .maybe things will be back to their… well, now… normal. Whatever that is these days.

When Brazilian graphic designer Carol Rossetti began posting colorful illustrations of women and their stories to Facebook, she had no idea how popular they would become. 

Thousands of shares throughout the world later, the appeal of Rosetti’s work is clear. Much like the street art phenomenon Stop Telling Women To Smile, Rossetti’s empowering images are the kind you want to post on every street corner, as both a reminder and affirmation of women’s bodily autonomy. 

"It has always bothered me, the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies, behavior and identities," Rossetti told Mic via email. "It’s a kind of oppression so deeply entangled in our culture that most people don’t even see it’s there, and how cruel it can be."

Rossetti’s illustrations touch upon an impressive range of intersectional topics, including LGBTQ identity, body image, ageism, racism, sexism and ableism. Some characters are based on the experiences of friends or her own life, while others draw inspiration from the stories many women have shared across the Internet. 

"I see those situations I portray every day," she wrote. "I lived some of them myself."

Despite quickly garnering thousands of enthusiastic comments and shares on Facebook, the project started as something personal — so personal, in fact, that Rossetti is still figuring out what to call it. For now, the images reside in albums simply titled “WOMEN in english!" or "Mujeres en español!" which is fitting: Rossetti’s illustrations encompass a vast set of experiences that together create a powerful picture of both women’s identity and oppression.

One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the way it has struck such a global chord. Rossetti originally wrote the text of the illustrations in Portuguese, and then worked with an Australian woman to translate them to English. A group of Israeli feminists also took it upon themselves to create versions of the illustrations in Hebrew. Now, more people have reached out to Rossetti through Facebook and offered to translate her work into even more languages. Next on the docket? Spanish, Russian, German and Lithuanian.

It’s an inspiring show of global solidarity, but the message of Rossetti’s art is clear in any language. Above all, her images celebrate being true to oneself, respecting others and questioning what society tells us is acceptable or beautiful.

"I can’t change the world by myself," Rossetti said. "But I’d love to know that my work made people review their privileges and be more open to understanding and respecting one another."

Did my errands, mailed my state fair entries, came home and had a breakdown.
.
I am still upset about yesterday, I had a horrible pain night coupled with relentless hot flashes, ran into an old coworker at Michaels, and by the time I got done with everything I was just…. Done.
.
Trying to pull it together and go have lunch with Kris, but later, probably more crying, lots of cold water and hopefully some sleep.

Wearing my green dress for the first time, so at least I’m cute… Even if I am miserable.

Text

Slept like shit and hardly at all at that.  But if I don’t get up now and get going on my errands I won’t get those entries to the fair in time.

.

blargh.

.

Shower, get dressed, go to Costco, go to Michaels, come home, mount photos, go to Postal Place, mail entires, check, and entry form.

Come home. SLEEP.

Tuesday we usually go to lunch at Circle Grill and see Lindsay, but I think I’m out today.  I’m so tired I’m actually nauseated and my flare hasn’t gone away and the last thing I want to do is have to interact with people I like.  Because… well let’s face it- I’m gonna be a bitch today.  I don’t have the energy for anything else.

Tomorrow I HAVE to go pick up my state fair prints from Costco, get board to mount them on from Michaels, come home, mount them, go to the post office (or a mail boxes place) and box them up and send them to ensure they arrive at the State Fair office on Friday.  Otherwise I’ll have to send in the entry form and then physically GO to the fairgrounds and drop them off.. and that’s just.. not an ordeal I want to deal with to be quite frank.

.

So tomorrow- I need my feet to be less fucked up than they are today.  Mmmk?

to be honest i get confused when people talk about how great Orphan Black is in terms of representation

like… this is the show where ALL of the characters of color are some combination of marginal, dead, tragic, absent, abusive, or subservient to the white characters (post doesn’t include Alison’s friend Meera, played by Priya Rao). like i’ve said before, this show has truly made casting only white people for the significant roles into an art

but then i remember that for queer white fangirls, good representation never includes people of color. it’s all about white queerness, and we don’t just cast everyone else aside but actually stomp them down so that we can get higher up

you only have to look at how the most beloved character in the fandom seems to be Cosima the anti-black little shit. and her appropriation of a Black hairstyle is part of the REASON people like her (because “it’s so sexy and edgy and just looks so good on her” -___-)
