Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

It seems as if time is running out, prompting you to make a last-minute effort to reveal your thoughts now. Unfortunately, your message might expose your inner turmoil as you worry about how much to bring out into the open. Instead of wasting energy in logical analysis, just speak from your heart today. Even if your words create confusion, they catalyze a transformational process that will continue over the next few days. Don’t worry about your destination yet; just take the first few steps and figure out the rest along the way.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Someone might drive you up the wall today because you want closure on a relationship issue and your friend or partner remains indecisive. You could try everything in your bag of tricks to elicit a real commitment, but gentle prodding, logical debate and even your emotional appeal seem to fail. It’s as if others discovered that their evasive tactics actually weaken your authority now. Thankfully, your patience pays off later in the day when the Sun and the Moon both shift into fixed signs, solidifying everyone’s positions. Good things come to those who wait.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Waking up on the wrong side of the bed today could be enough to start your day on the wrong foot. You want to tell others how you feel but you’re not interested in stirring up any trouble. Nevertheless, you can only keep quiet for so long. Naturally, your message is important but so is your delivery. It will be easier to put all your cards on the table once the first one is played. But don’t wait for someone else to speak up; the window of opportunity will close sooner than you expect.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You might feel like a Crab out of water today because your emotions don’t seem to fit anywhere you try to put them. However, difficult aspects require you to downplay your needs until the Moon leaves your sign and blasts into lively Leo. Luckily, cosmic help is on the way this afternoon, once the Moon shifts into your 2nd House of Self-Esteem. A wave of confidence empowers you to reveal your feelings without worrying about the consequences. You can’t control other people’s actions, but you certainly can control your reactions.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

The longer you hold onto your tension, the harder it is to let it go. Nevertheless, the Moon’s move into your extroverted sign today creates a cosmic opportunity to get something off your chest. Keep in mind that your passionate revelation might be more than your friends and family can handle now. Naturally, you want to give your solo performance one hundred and ten percent, but you’ll make more of an impact if you scale the drama back just a bit. President Harry S. Truman said, “Intense feeling too often obscures the truth.”

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You wish you could go into hiding today, even if your social calendar draws you out to mix and mingle. Thoughts of solitude lure you away from the maddening crowds and into the confines of your own mind. Ironically, going inward enables you to simultaneously travel outward, all the way to distant galaxies. You may be intrigued with the process of contemplation yet nervous about losing your footing. Joseph Campbell wrote, “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.”

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You’re reaching the end of one chapter and must tie up any loose ends that you don’t want to carry into the next. Nevertheless, you may be torn between taking care of your own needs now and nurturing those you love. Resolving this conflict might seem impossible until you experience a critical moment today when everything suddenly becomes clear. Don’t hesitate once you see the light; your uncertainty could return if you wait too long to make your move. Action has more value than intention.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You are standing at the edge of a precipice with your future opening before you. You intuitively know that yesterday’s fantasies will become tomorrow’s reality, amplifying your anticipation along with your fears of failure. But this is no time for your faith to waver because your current thoughts are the most powerful influence on whatever happens next. Author Miasha writes, “Don’t dream your life, live your dreams.”

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Exceeding everyone’s expectations can be exhausting at times, but you inadvertently play a significant part in creating your larger-than-life presence. Although you may be ready for some downtime now, it’s difficult to convince others that you’re serious about slipping out of the spotlight to rejuvenate your soul. You might be temporarily lured back into the fray today, but it’s not your responsibility to assume the role of social director. Novelist May Sarton penned, “Solitude is the salt of personhood. It brings out the authentic flavor of every experience.”

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

People seem overly clingy today, prompting you to distance yourself from them. It’s not that you’re insensitive to their needs; rather you’re afraid of being pulled into someone’s personal drama that’s so deep you can’t climb out. Establishing your boundaries feels like a necessary step in helping anyone else now but it can also create an unnecessary gulf between you and those you love. Nevertheless, you are not required to set yourself on fire to keep others warm.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Quietly go about your business on your own today, instead of spending too much time worrying about what others think. Participating in a group activity is often exhilarating because so much can be accomplished when people work together for a common cause. Nevertheless, you’re more effective now running errands and crossing items off your to-do list without coordinating your efforts with anyone else. Sometimes, those who fly solo have the strongest wings.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You know what your happiness depends on, but believe you shouldn’t have to tell anyone today. Those who love you should know what you need without you saying a word. Unfortunately, harboring romantic illusions based on self-imposed silence doesn’t lead to satisfaction. There’s no reason to set yourself up for failure by refusing to communicate. Take Oprah Winfrey’s words to heart: “You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.”

Katrina@Butch: So uhhhh, Butch, right? Didnt you say that you completely regret being a sylveon? How EXACTLY did you apparently evolve into one in the first place?

Love. Needless to say I’ve been blaming my trainer…but it’s probably time to come clean. An Eevee needs to feel love for another. Trainers are usually the target of this because they are our caretakers. For me it’s more of an unrequited situation and I’m bitter because I changed into a Sylveon and there’s no going back. I would rather have been an Umbreon to be beneficial to the team while we were in Kalos.

Having that kind of day, so Steggy + peace

Peggy was exhausted.

The debriefing had started just after dawn and had lasted all day, questions about the accident that had brought her here - what exactly had Howard been trying to achieve, what equipment and instruments he had been using, what they had done before the blast - interspersed with medical examinations to see if time travel had had any physical effects. She had been poked and prodded so much she wouldn’t be surprised to find fingerprint-sized bruises on her arms tomorrow.

Nor did it seem like her constant repeating of what had happened was getting them any closer to an answer, so when she had been left alone for a minutes she had taken the opportunity to slip out of the briefing room and find some solitude in a deserted hallway.

Leaning back against the wall, Peggy closed her eyes and took a long deep breath. It wasn’t that she didn’t understand SHIELD’s frustration; she was having trouble wrapping her own mind around the idea that an experiment gone wrong had sent her tumbling seventy years into the future.

But good grief, repeating the same story over and over for close to eight and half hours was exasperating.

As she stood there, she heard the sound of footsteps approaching. She waited for the SHIELD agent to say they had come to escort her back for more questioning, but when there was only silence she opened her eyes again and found herself looking at Steve.

Her heart gave an unsteady thump against her ribs. That was something else she had having trouble wrapping her mind around.

Steve was alive. And he was here.

He looked just the same as she remembered, if perhaps with a slightly graver air to him, and a few more lines etched around the corners of his eyes and mouth. But his blue gaze was still soft and warm as he watched her, seeming to see right through to her soul.

“So,” Peggy ventured after several moments’ silence, filled with a wealth of unspoken feelings. “It seems governmental red tape hasn’t changed much.”

Amusement flickered over his face. “No, not much.”

“I suppose it was too much to hope for.”

He looked at her thoughtfully, then smiled and held out his hand. “Some other things haven’t changed, either. Come with me.”

With only the briefest hesitation Peggy slipped her hand into his, fingers instinctively entwining together. Even after all this time their hands knew each other, as if they had never been apart.

Steve lead her back through the hallway, but instead of turning back to the briefing room they headed in the opposite direction, up several flights of stairs and through a tall metal door on to the building’s roof.

New York was spread out before them. It had grown even more that she would have thought possible in the last few decades, buildings springing up to improbable heights and the streets filling with more people than they seemed able to fit. Right now everything was illuminated in a brilliant wash of gold as the sun began to sink below the horizon, streaking the sky with bright swathes of orange, red and pink.

Peggy caught her breath slightly at the sight, her hand tightening on Steve’s. Glancing up, she found him gazing down at her.

“Sunsets haven’t changed so much either.”

Her lips curved into a smile, and she laid her head against his shoulder. He felt solid and firm beneath her, and every muscle in her body seemed to unfurl and relax at the same time.

She was still exhausted, but in this moment, with Steve stood beside her and the sounds of the world distant below them, she was also happier than she had been for a long, long time.
SNP wins alcohol minimum price court battle
The Scottish Government has won its legal battle to introduce alcohol minimum pricing in Scotland after the Court of Session today kicked out an objection by the drinks industry.

This is part of the same SNP ideology that treats football fans like criminals, they see working class people as moral degenerates that need to be pushed and prodded into shape. This is basically a tax aimed exclusively at the poorest, it won’t stop them drinking, they’ll do without other things like food and heat… 

I don’t know what’s worse, the shortbread tin nationalist view of Scotland they used to have, or the glossy corporate brochure nationalism they have now - at least the romantic tartan bullshit didn’t begrudge you a wee bevvy and a carry on at the fitbaw
Late-Term Abortion Was the Right Choice for Me |

CN: cissexism 

BERKELEY, Calif. — I was 21 weeks pregnant when a doctor told my husband and me that our second little boy was missing half his heart. It had stopped growing correctly around five weeks gestation, but the abnormality was not detectable until the 20-week anatomy scan. It was very unlikely that our baby would survive delivery, and if he did, he would ultimately need a heart transplant.

In the days that followed, after the poking and prodding, after the meetings with pediatric cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons and geneticists, my husband and I decided to terminate our pregnancy. I was 22 weeks pregnant when they wheeled me into the operating room, two weeks shy of viability in the state of California.

For us, the decision was about compassion for our unborn baby, who would face overwhelming and horribly painful obstacles. Compassion for our 2-year-old son, who would contend with hours upon hours in a hospital, missing out on invaluable time spent with his parents, and the death of a very real sibling. It was about compassion for our marriage. Perhaps most important, it was about our belief that parenthood sometimes means we sacrifice our own dreams so our children don’t have to suffer.

Okay so, if I decided to be merciful and if I began entertaining the idea of giving Ravi a proper, good for him, significant other after his ‘unfortunate thing’ (which again really isn’t that awful, but its just a bit sad for him)…

First off they’d have to be single. Emotionally unattached, and physically unattached to anyone else. They’d need to be kind and patient. Whether they’re naturally grouchy or naturally cheery, the one thing they need to be is kind and patient. They’d need to be strong of mind and willing to give Ravi the proper shake he needs. They’d wouldn’t easily be taken by his silvertongue and would prod him when he needs to be prodded. Also, they’d have to start off as friends with Ravi first and then it sort of grew from there. 

The Physio finds me perplexing...

At my last physio visit I got my running privileges revoked and I got needles stuck in my knee. Personally, the needles did nothing for me. They probably didn’t make anything worse but they didn’t make anything better and so I decided no more needling.

I went in today with more complaints than usual: night pain, sharp tingling emanating from my left glute, clicking knees and general discomfort. Instead of my usual warm-up on the bike I got to immerse the cranky knee in hot swirling water and then very cold swirling water. I was glad that I picked the shorter shorts to wear today because even they got a little wet; longer ones would have been a disaster.

After more poking and prodding on the knee the physio turned his attention to my glute. “Sounds like the start of piriformis” he said and then proceeded to dig into my glute in a very systematic way until he found the problem spot. It was crazily painful when he found it (I actually squealed) but now my glute feels amazing. I have my own little lacrosse ball to try and release by myself so we’ll see how that goes!

Looking for a snack? Try pie, or a pie by-product. Dinner? Pie and/or its by-product. Trying to patch a leaky roof? We have just the thing for you, and we also have its by-products.

To the family of intern Dex, we thank you for his service to the cause of community radio, and join you in mourning the permanent loss of his chill.”

Hockey Mantra: Pain is just weakness leaving the body. And then being replaced by pain. Lots of pain.

An update on our previous message about pie and pie by-products. You should not eat pie or pie by-products, say several frantic sports nutritionists, waving clipboards in our studio. If you have any pie or pie by-products in your home, you are almost certainly already dead. Sorry about that.

… even in crossovers, some things don’t change ;)
