Please change your name to "fergusonconfessions", as your current name is very misleading. (Seriously, can't you just make a separate blog?)

There’s literally 5-10 confessions out of the 50 posted today about ferguson. it’s a tremendously important event that has made global impact as far as hong kong. 

unfollow me—but first—suck my ass.

Oh so since he was Hispanic it's no biggie I got it. The point is a white guy died so it's no big deal because we are so "privileged" (go ahead and make fun of me quoting that) The point of the grand jury is to look at the FACTS and pursue a trial if they have a case. Go ahead read all of the witnesses and testimonies they reviewed and honestly tell me that he is in the wrong. I don't care about what you've heard or what the liberal media is shoving down our throats, but the actual facts.

Hi, uhm i was wondering if you could help me. I am trying to make a Japanese school uniform and a uniform for Shiro from No Game No Life. Is there any place to get a pattern for that? I haven't really sewn to much before and every time i sew without a pattern things turn out to small. Sorry if this is annoying question or already in your FAQ ;-;

Hm, i spent a bit of time looking for actual sewing patterns and I couldn’t find one?? which i think is wild i’m shocked there isn’t an easy to find sewing pattern for something so many people want to know how to make BUT i found this really amazing tutorial!!! http://fattogami.tumblr.com/post/55535810171/how-to-sew-a-sailor-uniform-part-1-sewing-the this is seriously one of the cleanest, most informative tutorials I’ve ever seen, and while I know this doesn’t help you with your exact problem of always cutting things too small, i would suggest making a mock up first using scrap fabric/cheaper fabric that way you know exactly what size you need to make things so you don’t waste the fabric you actually need!!!!

For my sailor fuku’s I use a very basic woven top as my base, so if you can find a pattern that’s just a plain ol woven top that can be super handy!

I was at that protest. It was a solidarity rally. A few of the protesters were being dicks, if you watch the video you can see a few climbing up on the car. That does NOT justify running somebody over, revving your car into a crowd with the possibility of killing and/or seriously injuring several people.

ahhhh i get so so sooo excited every time someone gets a package

like seriously(!!!!!!) i go and show the gifts to my mom bc i cant handle how nice taylor is 

My New iPad

So I had gone to Small Dog Electronics for the purpose of repairing my computer, which had stopped recognizing any and all power supplies.  (I know what it looks like when a power supply is the culprit and this is not it.   Apple agreees with me, and it’s under warranty so I don’t have to pay anything.

Then I showed them the shattered glass on my iPad (I had very stupidly taken off and left off the cover for awhile and then dropped it because I’m a klutz.  They told me that nobody really repairs glass on iPads anymore, except some people who do it sort of not illlegally but certainly without Apple’s approval.  (Apple creeps me out sometimes.  I need their products because they are the most cognitively accessible ones out there for my brain, but the way they try to control everything seriously bothers me.)

They told me I’d be better off buying an iPad Mini than paying to have my screen repaired.  I told them it was moot because I don’t have that kind of money, ever.

Then the next day, I got a check in the mail from the Burlington Housing Authority.  It seems that not only did I get my full security deposit back despite the wreck I made of the place.  They must have very low standards.  It also seems I had been overpaying my rent for months on end.  The upshot was i had just enough money to buy an iPad Mini 3, wifi, 64 GB (!!!!!).  The case was free because it was the house brand and they were having a sale.  And a screen protector, and an extra power cable sturdier than the one it came with. 

The salesman was great. He answered all questions honestly and didn’t try to sell me anything more than I needed. In fact I was the one who made my order bigger than expected with the extra power cable, not him.  He was obviously unaware of the dangers of relying on only one cable to charge your primary communication device. 

And that’s why I spent the money on this. I had had two main communication devices, computer and iPad, break in two different ways. That is bad news. 

Also, now that I am ambulatory, a computer or even a full size iPad becomes quite bulky. A mini iPad is exactly the right size for aug comm, not too big or too small. Plus it is more affordable to get more storage space in one than a full sized one. I’ve had it for hours and am in love already.  It’s such a perfect little thing.  And this time I got it a case that fits around it and seems fairly protective, and was actually free because Small Dog made it themselves.  And the case can have it stand upright or sideways.

By the way never leave an annoying feeding tube alarm blaring when you’re on the toilet.  Your cat might get annoyed and knock over a glass of water onto a bunch of important papers and stuff.  And this is a glass of water that we had cat-proofed fairly well, so doing this took some effort on her part (knocking over the obstacles in its way, then knocking over the glass of water).  When Fey is pissed, she doesn’t just get mad, she gets even.

But seriously if you’re an ambulatory person considering an iPad versus an iPad Mini for a communication device, I’d strongly suggest going with the Mini, or at least trying out both in person before you decide.  There are drawbacks to the Mini, but I find them well worth the benefits.  Including the fact that even with the case on, holding it feels like holding a small book.  The iPad Air may be light as well, but it’s bulky, and bulky becomes trickier to deal with the more walking you do.  It’s not that I expect to literally walk and type at the same time, but I could walk and hit a number of important picture symbols at the same time, and that’s important too.

Unexpected money twice, followed by unexpected but amazing purchase twice:  rocking chair and iPad Mini.  I’m rocking in the rocking chair as I write this, and it’s really nice to be able to rock without putting out a lot of physical effort to do so.  That’s why my rocking stopped a few years ago except in extremely stressful situations: The adrenal insufficiency and myasthenia gravis just made it too exhausting, and my body stopped doing it.  I had no choice or say in the matter.  The rocking chair gives me some say again.  (Gone are the days when they got me a rocking chair so I would have a “socially acceptable” way to rock. This actually happened at a residential facility.

And the iPad Mini is just wonderful for everything from a communication device to a way to work on my novel.  The two main apps I’ve used so far, are Proloquo2Go and Evernote.  Also Tumblr.

I really want to talk about something in this scene, and no it’s not the fact that Danny’s pants are a bit too tight in the crotch area, I wanted to bring up that aside from LaFontaine nobody in this scene looks at Laura once, not the girls that were saved, not mother hen Perry, not puppy dog Kirsch, not once lover Danny, the only set of eyes ever on her are LaFontaine’s cold angry ones, I don’t know what or who they’re angry at and frankly it doesn’t matter because as we know Laura looks over the videos before uploading them and she’s gonna see this moment when she’s at her lowest and nobody can look at her with sympathy or caring and it’s going to reinforce in her mind that their failure is her fault, that Carmilla’s death is her fault, and that’s gonna lead somewhere dangerous.

Seriously this is brilliant from a directing standpoint cause it reflects the focal character’s mental state in a beautiful visual and it’s just one example of the many choices made throughout the series that take this from just another vlog series to the show that we all love

My mum

My mother was very funny but slightly frightening. I’d describe her as emotionally pyrotechnic. She was beautiful, a Glaswegian Grace Kelly, and she would look at me and say, “What happened? 

Obviously, she loved me but I was a bit funky looking with really bad hair. It built my character and made me realise that no matter what’s thrown at you in life, you have to deal with it. 

Funny women

I never made a conscious decision to do comedy but as an impressionable 12-year-old I looked up to Lucille Ball, and Marti Caine. They pulled funny faces for a living and I saw them and thought, “I can do that.” These days I admire Allison Janney and Tina Fey. There’s something about older women that makes them great comedians. They’ve been battered by life and that gives them a wisdom and confidence that means they can be funny and heartbreaking at the same time. 

I’ve played many women on Psychobitches but it’s Margaret Thatcher who worried me the most because of the juxtaposition. She’s a force-of-nature former prime minister and I’m a working-class Glaswegian. But there is normally some sort of physical hook to latch onto. With Thatcher I started by deepening the voice and then you add a bit of teeth and she’s arrived!

I was surprised that I lost myself in her more than any other character I’ve played. People might think that it’s disrespectful to send up these women but most of them had such massive egos to get where they did that I think they’d be delighted that we were still talking about them.

Michelle returns to Psychobitches as…Baroness Thatcher.
