Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.

eta: there is a petition for you (yes, YOU!) to sign.

as usual, I need your help.
I'm writing my personal statement, and I was wondering if  you guys had any short quotes? Looking for something inspirational or on experience/making a difference.

So far I've got:

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Nothing is a waste of time if you use the time wisely.
- Auguste Rodin
We must overcome the notion that we must be regular... It robs you of the chance to be extraordinary and leads you to the mediocre.
- Uta Hagen

because I have an essay tomorrow morning on carbohydrates that I've not started, HAVE A POST:

so I guess the important question here is, WHAT HAVE I DONE THIS WEEK. Well, not much, except I started working in a psych lab (\o/!!!). We're testing learning behavior in rats, and well, the rats are kind of cute?? IDK, BUT THEY LOOK LIKE THIS. They sort of remind me of Remy from Ratatouille *_*

also, my mom is turning 57 this weekend, and I GOT HER TICKETS TO SEE LES MIZ. :DDD except, except sdlfhasdf i have to keep this a secret for four more days asldkhfaskldjfd

anyway, most importantly, I've properly lost all shame and wrote tentacle porn for Tentacular Spectacular.

it's all emily's fault for hosting this )

...and then because that wasn't bad enough, I wrote some more.

um...just keep blaming emily, it's what i did. )

Summary: He reviews what he knows about Arthur—Arthur Darling, 26, photographed outside Starbucks, photographed inside Starbucks, grande Americano, no sugar, a splash of half and half. How terribly uncreative and unrepentantly American.

but you know, the most important thing here is that I FINISHED IT!!!

so [ profile] noapologyapathy and I were having one of our hourly A/E discussions, and we started talking about jailbait!Arthur sneaking into a club with some help from Mal, and Eames is v. v. pleased. Which of course (along with having this song on repeat) then spawned all this:

rating: r
summary: Eames told Arthur that he loved him seven years before Inception. Arthur, who was pretty drunk at the time, and unwilling to get involved with another man no matter how much Eames turned him on, laughed at him. When Eames pushed his suit, Arthur drew on years of reading fairytales to his little sisters for his answer. Arthur set him seven impossible tasks, and now Eames has completed the seventh. He is ready to claim his prize.
disclaimer: not mine!
a/n: for this prompt on [ profile] inception_kink . Inception fandom has been such a good influence on me, especially since I am notorious for starting WIPs that I never get around to finishing.

( Bad ideas are to Eames as bees are to honey—stinging, and on occasion, the cause of severe allergic reactions. )

just a quick update to let everyone know that:

  • I'm in the middle of finals week, and GOD I WANT IT TO BE OVER ALREADY
  • also hey, [ profile] oxymoronic I'VE STARTED WRITING THE HP FIC AGAIN because I'm telling you, writing HP fic is directly related to your return. :'D
  • SPRING BREAK IS LESS THAN TWO DAYS AWAY. Family is coming in from the East Coast, so hopefully, a trip to Disneyland is in order.
  • and most importantly, I'm offering to write fic for [ profile] help_japan ! My thread is over here.

rating: pg, in the sense that this is very tame.
summary: five times Eames steals a kiss
disclaimer: not mine!
a/n: God help me, I wrote Inception fic. Entirely [ profile] sarrni_korppi 's fault since she asked for it. Also, I blame whoever invented "cool effect fabric" because there's no way that shit is as effective as it sounds, right?! Thanks have to go to [ profile] never_thinkx for being a wonderful audience \o/

( This must be love, Eames thinks. This must be glorious, unselfish, Austenian love. )

rating: R
summary: May your eyelids never flutter into the empty distance.
disclaimer: Yep.
a/n: for [ profile] sarrni_korppi ♥ I started this so long ago, I don't even remember what lyrics I used. I know there was a mix of Tegan & Sara, Coldplay, Stars, and other artists I'm forgetting. Title, summary, cut text, and quote are taken from Neruda's Don't Go Far Off, Not Even For A Day.

( Because in that moment, you'll have gone so far. )

Step 1: Post this into your LJ publicly.
Step 2: Others will reply anonymously (if they'd like) about what they really think of you.
Step 3: Cry, because this meme is so brutal, and it hurts.

I want to call this a hiatus, but it's really more of a good-bye for a however long period of time.

First things first, my mom sort of got really pissed at me and went through everything. I mean, everything. For someone who often has trouble logging into her email, she sure is computer savvy. Anyway, she found my fanfiction. Yeah, uh-oh.

She's made me deactivate my Facebook and delete my MySpace (but um, I never pressed the confirm link for that so maybe you can still catch me there). She's also screening my emails now. ;___; She doesn't know I have a LJ, and I intend to keep things that way. However, she's taken away my computer, so I have no way of logging on without her breathing down my neck. School's the only place I'm semi-safe now. So if I DO manage to log on, I'll only have a tiny window of time.

the stars are out tonight, and you can see them quite clearly if your timing's right. )

I want you to know that I'm not leaving forever. Just until whenever my mom decides she can trust me again. I would say text me if I had text, but I don't. D: Feel free to call me though! If you don't have my number, but would like it, just ask. ♥

Bye guys.

it's meme time, kids!

This is strictly Pinto only!
