Let's Make a Baby!

aprilbegins made this comment about being an unplanned baby in a post in ohnotheydidnt

I, for one, am glad I wasn't planned. That would just make me crawl into my already extremely repressed self that much more.


Note: My father's name is not Sigmund

Context is laughing herself silly and wishing she was unplanned too

Scary Stories from the 'hood

victoriana has her students write scary stories for Halloween. Then she puts a few quotes from them for us all to enjoy:

"We felt a cold breeze come over us, then we heard like a lady like voice. It was like GET OUT!!" (So then I was like, "Ghost, please!" and the ghost was like, "OMG, no you DIDN'T!" and I was like, "Uh, yeah I did!", and then we like had to take it to the street, and I was like...)

(no subject)

lolavavoom just got back on AIM after two years:

But, even more amazing - there are "Black Voices" buddy icons!
Which break down thusly.

"African American Heritage" (kente cloth, the black power sign, clapping hands, a saxophonist...)

"Martin Luther King"

"Malcolm X"

"Musicians A-G"

"Musicians H-M"

"Musicians N-Z"


Really? That's it? I could have SWORN we had some athletes.

And where the hell is the Oprah icon???

Context is puzzled by the skewed selection. QWP.

Lurch at the Mega-church

ginamariewade's eight year-old son makes an interesting connection between Halloween and evangelical Wackos (filtered, QWP):
The other night, ... we passed this huge mega-church that's on Hwy 22. They are having one of those "Judgement Day" haunted-house-but-isn't-really-a-haunted-house-because-we-put-an-evangelical-judgement-day-spin-on-it events. ... they had a big tent in the back of their lot and a lot of flashing lights and a smoke machine and commotion.
Little Bear noted it and thought that the building was on fire, and I told him, no, they were doing their Halloween thing. And he said "Then they must be reanimating Jesus or something."
I thought I was going to pass out. Because I can see his logic - Halloween=zombies and the dead and creepy stuff like that, and if a church is doing something, it must involve Jesus.
