TRANSFORMERS HAT GIVEAWAY

To celebrate the anniversary of the G1 cartoon and to celebrate the fact that I knit like a silly spider lady when stressed, I am giving away two hats!

This post is for the Decepticon hat! The Autobot giveaway is over here.

These hats are hand knitted with 100% acrylic yarn and a polyester felt applique. They’re pretty big and they’re like a hug on your head, and they’ve been knitted using the Capucine pattern!

It is important to note that these hats come from a cat, bird, and yeti friendly home!

Rules:

  • Likes and reblogs both count.
  • You don’t have to be following me, but it would be nice if you did!
  • Mutuals will receive an extra, lovingly knitted gift.
  • No giveaway blogs, please.
  • Should you win, you must have your ask box open and you must be willing to give me a valid mailing address. How am I supposed to send you these head-hugs otherwise?
  • It is possible to win both hats, but only if you are actually randomly picked twice; once for each giveaway.

A winner will be randomly selected and notified via ask box or fan mail on Wednesday, October 8th.

Good luck!

I am a prosecutor who handles sexual assault cases and have some pretty good first-hand knowledge on this subject. The reason I’m bothering to say something about it is that I wouldn’t want this picture-that hundreds of thousands of people have apparently reblogged-to have a chilling effect on women seeking medical help after a sexual assault. So a few things—1. If it is not clear from the bill, most of the charges are for tests and meds to identify and treat (early) any possible STDs etc. These tests and meds are vitally important and someone who has been raped should not go without them. Early treatment or prophylaxis may mean the difference between fighting off a disease and carrying it with you for a long time.2. There are resources available to help victims cover medical costs. In Virginia, where I practice law, there is a Criminal Injuries Compensation Fund which pays these sort of bills. There are people involved in the court process whose sole job it is to help victims through the aftermath of crimes like this, including the financial repercussions. In a case where a victim “presses charges,” there should be no reason (at least where I live) why the victim would have to pay this bill.3. If you are raped, there are PEOPLE WHO CARE. From wonderful, highly trained sexual assault nurse examiners (SANE), to doctors, to victim advocates, to police and prosecutors, we are all here to help. The aftermath of violent crime is horrible, but no one has to navigate the waters alone. We care about you. We care about what happened to you. We want justice and healing for you and we will work however long and however hard we have to in order to see it done. You are brave, you are strong and you can and will get through this.

You have a dinner date for seven pm. What time do you arrive?

Seven. Am. Case the restaurant. Run background checks on the staff. Can the cook be trusted? If not I gotta kill him. Dispose of the body. Replace him with my own guy no later than 4:30.

Do you think everybody eventually learned not to stand too close to Perceptor

A lot of people are confused about why the DJD could just storm the Lost Light like that. The DJD doesn’t know either. But Tarn’s convinced everything’s fine! Really!

Also, they’re apparently just a bunch of violent, very insecure kids and Tarn is their personal motivator, even though he’s just as insecure.

Why did I even color this, I don’t think anybody who isn’t me thinks this is funny.

Completed knitting project! || Haruni shawl by Emily Ross

Yarn: Morris Empire 2ply. I used two strands of yarn together (dark purple and green).

I love this pattern because of the leaves, which is why these pics are so focused on them. It turned out a little smaller than expected, but I’m still ecstatic to have finished it! 

PS. Please ignore my bed spread. I have an obsession with purple.

School ripped the passion I had for writing out of my soul and buried it in a pile of shit a million miles away. And that’s the thing - school is meant to make you flourish - it’s supposed to reach deep into your mind and fill your head with passion, knowledge, education. Yet I spend my nights with my overused notebook open, pages seeping with endless memories and turmoil suffered over the years, and I am afraid that if I write something incorrectly, I’ll get a bad grade. My mind has been corrupted by an infinite amount of stimulus and criteria, so much so that I can’t even write one, simple word. I can’t write about my own experiences, my own pain or my own happiness. School has fucked me so many times. I lack passion and the desire to live. I’ll never be the person to say that school handed me the best years of my life. It’s stolen my life.

While it is true that school is not the place to nurture the flourishing of the creative mind, it must be done TO SPITE THEM. Stephen King was told my his high school writing teacher that his writing wouldn’t amount to anything because it was too macabre!
