Crazy Little Thing Called Rage

Do you guys ever have that thing where you think you should really update your blog because you’ve really been meaning to and it’s been too long and you really want to, etc, yadda yadda, and so on, but the things that are in your head are all the terribly horrible things that are happening and you feel that posting about anything other than the terribly horrible things is a waste of your voice and a disservice to the community, but then also at the same time you feel like all you really have to add to the conversation of such horror is rage and what good does that ever really do and also you’re slightly embarrassed for not shouting said rage from the rooftops from day one but you didn’t because things this horrible make your heart hurt so badly that your brain completely shuts down? Yeah, I have that thing, too.

I thought John Oliver did a good job covering Ferguson, as he’s done with most of the horrible, terrible, no good, very bad things since his show started. All I really have to add is this:

Dear Everyone,

No more shooting children. Ever. For any reason.

The end love E.

Friday Fun, Via Fake Michael Kors

Since I started blogging, I’ve discovered something utterly delightful: spam comments! I’m a) hugely flattered that spambots think that my site will get them the readership they so desperately want and b) completely flummoxed by the idea that there are so many fake Michael Kors products available. Like, so many. My grammar police side screams and wails at the heinous infractions these bots dream up, and my sci-fi nerd side can’t help but imagine my beloved Data saying each phrase. So, I’ve collected a few of my most favorite spam comments here, and will now go and research the best spam-blocking plug ins so as to reclaim my life from the swirling gyre that is knock-off watches and bags.

“Also in past night’s demonstrate, the ethics of the Conservative cabinet minister are now being questioned upon Ecosystem Minister Leona Aglukkak was the guest of honour at a fundraiser in Ottawa surrounded by teams that depend on federal funds. Ottawa bureau chief Robert Fife noted on the specifics as well as principles round conflict of desire.”

It’s like they know me! I totally care about Ecosystem. The most! Bots are so considerate nowadays!

“no the b album necropedosadomaso is from sewer not moray man liberalism”

Actually, all the best albums come from sewer.
“THE assert submitted with the twenty five calendar year outdated singer claims she would never ever have allowed the outfits chain to utilize the graphic considering that she thinks she looks ugly on them.”

Ladies, amirite?!
“In Saturdays it’s important to be dressed in condominiums. Upon Mondays you should put on diamond rings much like diamond stud earrings or a band.”

You know, I’ve been dressing wrong this whole time. I don’t think I’ve ever, not ever, dressed in a condominium. Drat!
A hearty thanks to Michael Kors, be he human or be he bot, for creating products in such demand that there are entire technologies dedicated to hawking their facsimiles, and the entertainment thereof derived. Also, since this blog could have just as easily (and accurately!) been called “All The Things I Love About Bekah,” I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that today is her birthday!! Here is her cute stinking face. May her wine glass never again run empty.
Bekah birthday
And finally, congrats to the lovely Monique of Brown Vegan! She won the birthday giveaway, and will get a copy of my book. Thanks to everyone who commented!!

Yes! Tomorrow’s my birthday and to celebrate, I wanna give you a present! I’m pretty sure that’s how this whole thing works. This is the first time that I’ve ever been able to do a giveaway of my book (since, you know, it just came out!). To celebrate the beginning of my 33rd year, I’m going to be giving away a copy of How to Be Vegan to randomly chosen, US-residing winner! All you have to do to enter the drawing is comment on this post with what you love most about birthdays.
