Other people: and then I romanced this character, and then I romanced this other one, and I think next time I might romance this other person?  I already have all my next OCs and romance routes planned.  It’s so exciting to see all the different romances in the game!

Me, speedrunning the game until I get to my one and only fave for the 37th time: can’t relate

Action Alert: Protect Federal Library Funding

Originally posted by cooliambatman

The Trump Administration recently released its proposed federal budget for FY2018. The Institute of Museum of Library Services (IMLS), the independent agency that administers the bulk of federal library funding under the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA),is included in the list of independent agencies whose budgets the proposal recommends eliminating.

There’s an easy way for you to help - call your Senator today and ask them to sign the Dear Appropriator letters supporting LSTA and IAL.

These letters support $186.6 million for the Library Services and Technology Act, which goes to every state in the country for them to decide how best to use it, and $27 million for the Innovative Approaches to Literacy Program that buys books and other supplies for kids from the poorest communities across the country. For more information about these programs, check out our other posts about appropriations.

Members of the Senate have only until May 19th to sign the separate LSTA and IAL “Dear Appropriator” letters now circulating.

Use ALA’s Legislative Action Center today to ask your Senators to sign both the LSTA and IAL letters. Many Members of Congress will only sign such a letter if their constituents ask them to, so it’s up to you to help save LSTA and IAL from elimination or significant cuts.

Five minutes of your time could help preserve over $210 million in library funding now at risk.

Nerd weddings are the best

Seriously, you get:

  • A bride walking down the aisle to Lord of the Rings
  • The minister beginning with “Marriage is what brings us together today”
  • Readings from Neil Gaiman and Walt Whitman
  • Star Trek references in the vows
  • The bridal party exiting to the Star Wars theme
  • A playlist that includes more LoTR, the Cantina song, and the Firefly theme song

Concept: We’re in bed after a long nap. The sun is deep and golden, filtering in through the blinds and drawing lines across your chest. We don’t talk. We listen to each other’s heartbeats and smile at nothing. I am in awe of you.

Some fabulous photos from this weekend’s “Axe to Grind: Forging Your Own Hatchet” class that I taught at The Steel Yard in Providence, RI! I’m extremely pleased with how the class turned out. Everyone went home with a finished forged hatchet, and I’m super excited to run this class again (hopefully in the fall?) We finished off the class with a good round of axe-brandishing and orcish war screaming! It was epic. 

“I had this vague notion that one day I might be editor of ‘Vogue China.’ It was a bizarre ambition, as I didn’t speak a word of Chinese. There were flaws in my plan, admittedly.”

“Do you remember? I promised you a proper sunset”

Okay okay, i know it’s a bit cheesy but I got carried away with these two space nerds
