Smart Girls


I’m pretty sure this is the MOST ADORABLE thing in the Universe today. I’ve tried to find the fabric on Spoonflower, but haven’t gotten lucky yet. I bet Emily could probably use her superpowers to find it in a heartbeat. Stay tuned…

For now, just let this girl’s love of math and science make your day.

UPDATE: The fabric is available via It’s designed by Sarah Johnston for Kaufman Fabrics. Thanks to @ninthfragment and @sweetestpiglet for the tip!

Me too! I love books. I come from a long line of biblioholics. I see people making “stacks of shame” and putting all their unread books together for a photo. I ain’t doing that. It’d take too much time away from reading to gather them all from different shelves and stacks around the house.

Here’s how women find time to look appealing to men during the apocalypse

When it comes to disaster movies, action movies, apocalypse movies, or basically any film that involved imperiled protagonists, women carry a very special burden. That’s because while their male counterparts have to fortify safehouses, locate ammunition, fight off looters, and speak in ominous tones about the dangers that lie ahead, women have to do all that, plus find time to do their hair, makeup, and everything else to look really attractive to those ominous-voiced men.

Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls is covering this disparity, with Dara Lane’s “Deleted Scenes Of Women In Disaster Movies Written By Men.” The video short documents the real challenge facing women surviving in the apocalypse: how to regularly shave all body hair with nothing but a rusty razor in a shallow runoff.

I am so psyched for tonight’s Golden Globes. They KILLED it the last time they hosted! Their jokes on George Clooney, Leo diCaprio and others critiqued gender stereotypes and behaviors while being literally LOL funny.

30 Rock is one of my favorite shows of all time, and I really like Parks and Recreation. But I LOVE Fey/Poehler, both outspoken pro-women, feminist firebrands. I read Bossypants and loved it, and Yes, Please is up next.

I’ve posted feminist quotes and gifs by both women, here is a quick way to catch up the “greatest hits.”
