I discovered an aspect of Photoshop that I was clueless about before, and the discovery inspired me to experiment - quite a bit. So I've created 21 icons. (More than that, actually, but these are the ones I'm gonna share for now lol). Since the set is completely random I'm not going to crosspost them anywhere lol. I'm posting them mainly to get feedback - to see if I'm any good or not. But if you actually want to USE them, then go ahead with credit, you know the drill lol.

Guyyyyyyyys I am. in love. with probably (one of the) sexiest men to ever exist. (I was gonna say "the sexiest" but then felt guilty because of my other loves so yeah, just one of them)

Who am I talking about? Why none other than the lovely, gorgeous MISHA COLLINS ♥

Naturally it is time to compose an ode to my love! Full of pics, vids and quotes. The picspam is dedicated to mi amorita [livejournal.com profile] charmanda, who I'm converting into a Misha fangirl too I hope ohoho.

and here we go! )

Now, over the years the Bush Administration has done some pretty appalling shit.

But this? This is one of their worst.

They're proposing an official "conscience rule" which would allow doctors to opt out of performing a procedure or service if they have a moral or religious objection to it.

This proposal is a blatant violation of basic human rights - for everyone.

The health of the patient is the most important thing, and only they have to the right to decide what to do to their own bodies - no one else. By allowing doctors to opt out of medical procedures because of so called "attacks of conscience", you are depriving the patient their right to health care. And in many cases, the patient doesn't have the option to simply find another doctor to treat them, therefore the doctor should do their job. If they had a moral objection to performing a procedure, then they either should not have entered that field, or face the rightful consequences for not doing their job - getting fired. If doctors must face the consequences for their mistakes, then surely they must face the consequences of their deliberate actions?

Actions that could lead to deaths, if the doctor decides they will not perform an abortion on a woman who will otherwise die if the pregnancy is carried to term. If a pregnant woman cannot get an abortion, and so resorts to extremely more risky ways to do it herself. If an AIDS patient is denied care because he or she is homosexual. Of course, these are but a few possible but very probable examples of what could happen.

This is not about protecting religious freedom at all. This is about completely taking control away from the people who have the least amount of it - patients. It applies especially to women and minorities but would affect the liberties of everyone.

So please, I beg you, take a moment and stand against it. Make a donation through Planned Parenthood.

Write to your legislator, telling them you oppose the rule, and asking them to fight it.

Let your voice be heard, and send a comment to consciencecomment@hhs.gov under the title of “provider conscience regulation".

Spread the word to everyone you know. Because if we're going to fight this, we'll need everyone we can get.

On my can of diet Dr. Pepper, it says this:

"Mutt and Spalko duel... atop a speeding Russian convoy!"

However, when I first read it, I read it like this:

"Mutt and Spalko duel... atop a speeding Russian cowboy!"

You can only IMAGINE the doubletake I did at that. xD;;

OKAY SO YOU GUYS I AM HAVING A PROBLEM

A MOTIVATION PROBLEM

MORE THAN HALF OF THE DAY IS GONE AND I STILL HAVEN'T STARTED PACKING OR CLEANING OR ANYTHING

SO I WAS HOPING MAYBE YOU GUYS COULD HELP BY GIVING ME INCENTIVES

FREE HUGS? LINKS TO FUNNY STUFF AND/OR MACROS? ART? FIC? LETTERS/EMAILS? ICONS? MARATHONS? SEXINGS? OF COURSE, ONLY GIVEN TO ME ONCE I HAVE SUCCESSFULLY MOVED, A WEEK FROM TODAY, BASICALLY

I'M NOT ASKING FOR A LOT, BUT IF YOU THINK I'M BEING LAZY AND SELFISH WELL YOU'RE RIGHT, BUT IT WOULD HELP ANYWAY.

ANYTHING AT ALL WOULD, EVEN JUST WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT OR THREATS OF HARM IF I DON'T GET OFF MY LAZY ASS SOON

THANKS IN ADVANCE MY LOVES ♥

HINT: [livejournal.com profile] dragonflycurls, THIS IS A PERFECT OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO PLAN A GET-TOGETHER AGAIN

Taking a little break from my work just to LOL over something in my history notes:

"The Soviets sent a turtle to orbit the moon in 1968"

This strikes me as so absurd that I can't help but find it totally hilarious. I mean, turtles? Orbiting the moon?!?! Oh, you crazy commies.

Je viens de regarder L'auberge espagnole

Y esto me encanta! Estoy feliz :)

Dans ce film... ils ont une vie, une belle vie, une vie merveilleuse.

Una vida que quiero tanta. Tendré esta vida.

Je dois avoir cette vie. Un jour.

The problem with watching a trilingual film is that your mind becomes filled with all three languages, so, I had to let it out. Haha.

I'm in such a weird mood right now. A whole bunch of emotions have hit me all at once, and they're getting all tangled up in each other. But the pervasive feeling is sadness. Not depression, but sadness. There's a difference somewhere between those words, there is. Because everything comes to an end, even the things that you never want to end. And now it's just figuring out whether it's worth the fight to keep things afloat.

That was kept purposefully vague because I don't even know half of what I'm talking about myself. Like I said, it's a weird mood.

So instead, have a meme:

Leave an anonymous comment with the following:

1. One secret.
2. One compliment.
3. One non-compliment.
4. One love note, but it does not have to be for me.
5. Lyrics to a song.
6. How old you are.
7. How long we've been friends.
8. And a hint to who you are.
9. After you do it for me, put it in your LJ and see who does it for you.


I'd be ever so happy if you would do this for me. :)

So, I'm sure you all know of the wank by now. If not, then dude, do you live under a rock?

Anyway, I'm not going to waste this entry by being all scared of it. 'Cause I'm not.

But COME ON, PEOPLE, WHERE IS THE RAAAAGE?!

I invite you all to express your anger about this shit here. Hell, feel free to rant about anything. I'm kinda in a bitchy mood ('cause that's what happens when I gossip with [livejournal.com profile] seer), so come on! Rant!

Let's all wank together. (LOL that sounds so wrong). And I thank [livejournal.com profile] mneiai for indirectly inspiring this. ♥
