Two more months and it’s 2015 what the fuck

I swear it was 2012 and we were all freaking out about the world ending like three months ago

Yeah and I actually had my life together. What a good twelve months that was.

Soooo many pillows. Sunday means fresh sheets and a tidy house.

The evolution of Halloween costumes for girls…

this is really important

This is why I get upset about the sexy costumes at Halloween.  Not because you don’t have the right to be sexy—you absolutely, absolutely do.  But because while you might be able to find costume #3 in a tween size in each of these rows, I can guarantee that in almost all cases, you will not find costume #2 in a teen or adult size.

Babies/toddlers get to be cute.  Kids/tweens get to be fun and spooky and still have modesty, if they want it.  Teens who aren’t on the small end are already getting the sexy, even if they really just want fun, spooky, and a skirt that goes below mid-thigh.  And adults?  LOL nope it’s sexy or nothing.

Everyone who is of an age to want sexy should be allowed to have sexy.  But “not sexy” should always be on the table as well, because sometimes you just want to be warm and cozy and filling a pillowcase with strangercandy.

I love it when society would call girls sluts for dressing like that and at the same time they refuse to offer girls any other kind of halloween costumes.

And then people have the nerve to mock onesies.

If you consider a woman
less pure after you’ve touched her
maybe you should take a look at your hands

nothing will ruin your 20s more than thinking you should have your life together already.

Me right nao

For real though, something about having a clean house as an adult makes me feel like the rest of my life is more manageable?

So pleased with how this came out. I think my year 4/5s are going to love having a go at it.

Kelly turned 21 - 26th of September, 2014

My beautiful best friend turned 21 years old. From this night I am going to remember amazing 50s music, how beautiful Kell looked in her dress, taking many moon photos, slow dancing with nana and my hilarious speech about the time Kelly first got drunk (ugh tequila) and how I felt like Oprah. Oh, and how Kelly break danced so hard she ripped her dress.

From beforehand I am going to remember all the build up, making a billion crepe paper puff things for the venue, messing around with fondant to make the cake and lastly, breaking into a house with Simone to get her a petticoat.

Here’s to another 21 years of friendship.

Indiana turned 1 - 19th of September, 2014

My beautiful god son turned one year old. In the future I am always going to remember his cheeky baby grin, him crawling rampant around The Classy Townhouse and all the late nights visit I had with his wonderful Mum watching crappy reality bridal shows and ordering pizza. 

What a year it has been. 


New comic!

Yeah, I might have watched a movie and gotten kind of mad.

This is seriously a trope I’d love to never see again though.

Men always say that as the defining compliment, don’t they? She’s a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. Go ahead, shit on me, I don’t mind, I’m the Cool Girl.

Men actually think this girl exists. Maybe they’re fooled because so many women are willing to pretend to be this girl. For a long time Cool Girl offended me. I used to see men — friends, co-workers, strangers — giddy over these awful pretender women, and I’d want to sit these men down and calmly say: You are not dating a woman, you are dating a woman who has watched too many movies written by socially awkward men who’d like to believe that this kind of woman exists and might kiss them.

Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn

A passage described as: the passage that has launched 1,000 blog postsnow-infamous | a deeply important piece of woman-related writing

Mic - For those who won’t read Gone Girl before the movie, at least read this passage:

[…] a section that has sparked its fair share of self-reflection, discomfort and controversy… a sharp critique of both men and women… pointed, concise, cultural criticism.

… acknowledges that this Cool Girl is a part she plays, a part that many women play. A non-threatening idea of femininity that she ultimately resents. Her critique is of the women, but it is also of the men. Men who are so drunk on their own image and idea of what women should be that they’ve made a trope: the Cool Girl. The spoiler is that the Cool Girl is not actually real.

BuzzFeed - Jennifer Lawrence and the history of Cool Girls

The Cool Girl never nags, or “just wants one” of your chili fries, because she orders a giant order for herself. She’s an ideal that matches the times—a mix of feminism and passivity, of confidence and femininity. She knows what she wants, and what she wants is to hang out with the guys.

Cool Girls don’t have the hang-ups of normal girls: They don’t get bogged down by the patriarchy, or worrying about their weight. They’re basically dudes masquerading in beautiful women’s bodies, reaping the privileges of both. But let’s be clear: It’s a performance. It might not be a conscious one, but it’s the way our society implicitly instructs young women on how to be awesome: Be chill and don’t be a downer, act like a dude but look like a supermodel.

DailyDot - In defense of the Cool Girl:

I remember exactly where I was when I first heard the “Cool Girl” passage from Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl… I think the main thing I so strongly identified with about the Cool Girl is her skill at adroitly navigating male spaces, which is something I prided myself on when I was younger.

In its most platonic form, being a Cool Girl means you have been marked as an exception to your gender, that you’ve received some elusive form of validation from male society. I first received this validation long before Gone Girl came out, when my boyfriend’s friend drunkenly came up to me after I’d made a poop joke and said, “You know, you’re not like other girls.”

If someone said this to me today, I’d probably respond with, “Wow, you’re an idiot. How many girls have you actually hung out with?” But at the time, I felt oddly gratified to be included in this category of “other girls,” who didn’t backstab or gossip or make Sex and the City references or wince at dirty jokes. Therein lies the slippery seductiveness of the Cool Girl: You are an exception, an anomaly, the 21st century of the “Good Negro”: You are different, and therefore better, than the other members of your gender.

But I also think the Cool Girl gets a bit of a bad rap, and we shouldn’t be so quick to castigate her. In order to criticize the Cool Girl, we have to ask ourselves why and how the trope became so prevalent, which involves deconstructing the sociocultural context from whence she came…

The argument that a woman who is both attractive and interested in what we traditionally think of as “male” activities can only do so because she’s desperate for male attention… also kinda makes me think: So the fuck what? So the fuck what if a woman is pretending to like the Detroit Lions because she wants some guy she’s interested in to think she’s cool?

Let’s say that the Cool Girl is, in fact, pure “performance.” Guess what? Literally all tropes and personality types you encounter in your youth are. This is something literally everyone, regardless of gender, does at various points in their life: They try on various identities and affiliations for size, until they find something that suits them.

When you’re at the pool lounging on a beach chair and some little kids are running and the lifeguard screams out “no running” do you respond “excuse me, not all of us are running”? No, you don’t. The lifeguard didn’t have to specifically state who they were talking to because you’re intelligent enough to comprehend that the comment wasn’t being directed at you.

Found a quote that shuts down that “not all men” argument pretty well. (via mykicks)

AHaha. haaaa. hh.
