Norwegian forest cats are the best.
They look like little snow lions.


MORE REASONS WHY NORWEGIAN FOREST CATS ARE THE BEST:
The colloquial term for them is “skogkatten”.
They’re also called “fairy cats” in Norway, because they’re so pretty.
They run down trees headfirst.
They’re fricking gigantic and they purr really loud.
They literally walk over snow like motherloving Legolas.
In Norse mythology, skogkatts pull the goddess Freya’s carriage.
Who doesn’t want a carriage pulled by cats?
Viking cats. End of story.


Oh what a terrible thing it appears that I haven’t reblogged these glorious beasts this year yet

We have come to pronounce judgment upon those who do not respect the will of the Catmoot.

"Raising the minimum wage is the right thing to do, and not just because it’s the fair thing to do. Raising the minimum wage is good for small business, the backbone of the American economy. In states with minimum wages higher than the federal minimum, the number of small businesses and the number of small business employees grew more than other states." ..

Inuit children at boarding school. The sign on the wall behind them reads, “Please do not speak Eskimo.” (1914)

This reminds me of how whole sects of complex Inuktitut dialects were wiped out by Euro settlers. There were hundreds of different and diverse dialects in Canadian Inuktitut languages alone, and a chunk of that was wiped out during early 20th century. That language is already on the brink of collapse (only 35,000 or so now loosely speak it).

They also took away not just their language, but their surnames, and replaced them with ID-numbers. As if taking their children and capturing them into residential schools (where they were systematically gaslighted, sexually abused and experimented on the regular) wasn’t enough, an Inuit child’s name was legit changed to something like “Annie E7-121.”

A brief reintroduction

Hey, y’all,

I know by now, you must think I’m just that weird chick who shares other peoples’ posts, but never posts anything herself. To be honest, I kinda lost my way after my initial plans to use this account as a testing ground for rough drafts fell through. Which is not to say I stopped writing. I just never felt right showing you my butt ugly writing without applying five revisions or so to it.

But someone asked me why I wasn’t at least posting updates on my new books, and the answer was that I forget to do it every single time. I’ve released 4 books in the last 4 months, and each time, a week after release, I think, “Dang, I forgot about Tumblr again.”

You might expect this to devolve into a link fest, and you’re only partly right.  Before I get there, I want to reintroduce myself. Hi, I’m Zoe Whitten, and I’m trans, bigender, and bisexual. I’m also an experimental writer with over 40 titles available on Amazon, Kobo, and Gumroad. I’m currently working on getting my back catalog on Barnes & Noble’s Nook store. I write fantasy, dark fantasy, horror, sci-fi, comedy, and some contemporary fiction. I have a lot of positive reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, and only a few negative reviews and ratings. My last four books published were Third Wheel Romance Blues (erotic romance), Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (dark fantasy), Adventures In Trolling (gay YA paranormal romance), and Nobody Special (contemporary YA).

Dear Therapists, Doctors and Counselors everywhere: I regret to inform you, but the Internet is real.

Yes, friendships on the internet are real. Bonds are formed. Common interests are explored. Support is mutually given and recieved.

Romance on the internet is real. People meet through any forum from Eharmony to World of Warcraft. Then, for whatever reason, the relationship blossoms and they decide to fly half way around the world and get married.

The bullying, harassment and terrorism is also real. When we recieve messages that tell us to go kill ourselves, we genuinely feel sad and bad because those messages are real. When we recieve threats that someone is going to rape us or burn our house down, we feel the amount of stress and fear that is appropriate for recieving those threats face-to-face.

The internet is real. As technology becomes integrated with our lives, it will only become ever more real. No, we can’t just “quit the internet” to focus on our “real lives” because, sadly, the internet is real. As employers increasingly ask us to put our resumes online, as jobs require us to have smartphones and email contact 24/7, as universities offer correspondance courses, and goods and services are paid for with Paypal or Bitcoin, the internet has proven itself to be a very real form of interaction.

The Internet is like real life, with good people and bad people and job opportunities and scams all rolled into one very new form of communication!

Please stop telling us to “just quit the internet” to solve our problems.

Thanks,
Young People Everywhere

The ONE THING I can’t identify here is going to haunt me forever.

Is it the moose on skates? IDK what the hell that one is.

That’s from the Get Along Gang: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Get_Along_Gang

I owned most of these.  I still own several.

Struck hard in the feels. This was the year my grandmother got me a Cabbage Patch Clone (not the real deal, but I didn’t care) Over the screaming objections of my dad that I wasn’t getting no god damned doll. Dad did however think it was okay for me to have the big plush Gizmo that squeaks when you shook it. I loved both and carried them everywhere.

That summer, my little brother beat the head off of the CBC, Andrew, and threw Gizmo in the mud under my dad’s truck. Dad didn’t really care enough to even say anything about it to my brother. “It was just a god damned doll,” he said.

So after I attempted surgery to super glue Andrew’s head back on, I took the BB gun Dad bought me and shot out the window of his truck. It was just some god damned glass, after all.

I’ll bet you thought this was gonna be a happy memory. =^/
