Spread the word. Link to this post if you want. I have it unlocked so everyone can see it. Do everything in your power to get the word out and make this known to everyone.

GET INVOLVED. STOP AT NOTHING. THE WORLD MUST KNOW.

I dare you to stop scrolling through your dashboard. Stop checking your Facebook newsfeed that you’ve already checked two seconds ago. Stop updating your Twitter and seeing what your favorite celebrities are saying. Stop watching funny and nonsense videos on Youtube. Take time to educate yourself to MAKE A DIFFERENCE in this world. This is your chance! WATCH THIS VIDEO.

Let’s make JOSEPH KONY Famous!!

Who is JOSEPH KONY?

He is THE WORST LIVING CRIMINAL. He abducts children and makes them use guns to kill their own parents. He takes girls and forces them to be sex slaves. He calls his abducted children the Lord’s Resistance Army, AKA the LRA. He has abducted over 30,000 children and forced them to be child soldiers in Central Africa. He remains at large because he is INVISIBLE to the world. FEW know his name, even FEWER know his crimes. WE ARE MAKING HIM FAMOUS! Because when he is, the world will unite against him and demand his arrest.

We can help make a change. We can make a difference.

I feel so inspired. I feel the need to help and make a difference. This has to happen in 2012. We can’t let him go around and keep doing this to children in Central Africa. Let’s make his name known so he can be stopped. HE CAN NO LONGER BE INVISIBLE!

REBLOG IF YOU CARE.

Edited: we won't back down

I decided to edit the first post, after finding online some controversial news about the organization (Invisible Children). Read this if you want to know more.

I still think the message is important, but I'm not sure I can support such an organization: I don't believe in the "lesser of two evils", when both of them are accused of being guilty of rape and looting (I'm talking about Joseph Kony and his men, and the armies of the countries that should stop him, who are supported by the organization).

That said, the message is still valid. Please, watch the video, 'cause the message must be known.
 
Joseph Kony MUST BE STOPPED AND PUT ON TRIAL.

SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA

Originally posted by darkspirited1 at SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA
This comes from an article by rachelmanija entitled, Say Yes to Gay YA.
(click the link for the full article)


Our novel Stranger has five viewpoint characters; one, Yuki Nakamura, is
gay and has a boyfriend. Yuki's romance, like the heterosexual ones in
the novel, involves nothing more explicit than kissing.

An agent from a major agency, one which represents a bestselling YA novel in the same genre as ours, called us.

The agent offered to sign us on the condition that we make the gay
character straight, or else remove his viewpoint and all references to
his sexual orientation.


This isn't about that specific agent; we'd gotten other rewrite requests before this one. Previous agents had also offered to take a second look if we did rewrites… including cutting the viewpoint of Yuki, the gay character.


It's time to stand up and demand change. Spread the word everywhere if you are just as angry and outraged by this.

I have a plan

Dude, that's ninja!

So, there I am tonight making dinner and mom-in-law is doing the assist with the plates and what have you when she stops, looks at me and says "I didn't get anything out for you!"

I instantly reply; "That's cause I'm ninja."

She says, "I don't know why.  I was talking to you and everything."

"That's because I'm the Ninja of Awesome."

I'm sure other people talk to get noticed.  I, on the other hand, talk so much that the silence worries people.  Just like my son and every other small child I'm now seeing.  Hmm, I don't like where this is headed...

Epic Flail

So, the thing is I love to do crafts. I pick up a new one every once and while just to keep from stagnating, but I really just love the sense of accomplishment when a project is finished. These last few years have been an eye opener for me in the self-awareness department. I'm starting to realize that I can dream big, but my follow through needs some serious work. It's one of the reasons I bounce so often, and even though I keep trying the failure is starting to get to me, again.

All of which leads me to crochet. I have been self teaching me for over a decade in this hobby all with one goal in mind. An afghan. Yep, the ultimate in my personal quest for homey-ness is the one thing you always dread to see at Grandma's. Well, not my grandmother - it's not her thing, but it still says grandma's to me. I don't just want any ole afghan, I want one of the cool ones. The soho chic afghans that you see and think "you have to be damned good to do that one", and I want to make it myself. Needless to say it has not happened.

I'm beginning to realize that I'll settle for butt ugly if it will get me one of these things. Crochet is not that hard. Time consuming, I'll give you that one, but not hard. It just takes the determination to learn a few basic stitches and how to read a pattern. Boredom kills me every time. It's actually my downfall with every craft I learn. So, I have learned to cycle them, and for the last two years it's been working, as long as I accept the glaring lack of an afghan. Excuse me while I shake my fist to the sky.

I have at least one accomplishment to my credit. I have finally moved past scarves! I made purses, hats and amigarumi this year. Amigarumi is Japanese for a small crocheted doll. There are a ton of patterns out there and I have made a few as well as tawashi, which I could call a personal washcloth, but I heard about it with the Japanese term and it stuck. Armed with these under my belt, I am trying again for my holy grail. So far? It's going to be ugly and I only nearly have the second panel done out of a needed nine. Actually, the panels by themselves would be lovely but combining them is a mistake color-wise, and the nine panels only make a lap-sized blanket. I just don't have the right yarn to finish any one color combination or even yarn type.

I just want with great big grabby hands of doom.

I want to finish my writing projects too. Hell, I'd like to get any writing out. It's at the point where it's becoming my obsession - this need to finish one big project. Just get one out of the way and I'll get my butt in gear to finish all the others, but we'll see. In the mean time - I've got my yarn in storage bins just waiting to be used, and a whole bunch of yarn squares waiting for assembly.

For no particular reason

Here's information you don't really care about, but I feel the need to impart:

And now, I am done with my little self confession.  I don't know why I do these things, but I get urges, then I blame hyperactivity, but mostly to get the last thing off my front page when I look at my old stuff.
