Defenders of Anarchy

I am housesitting right now for my friend, who has three little girls (who I am not watching) and two dogs (who I am watching).

My boyfriend is on a business trip this week in Tennessee.

I just spent the past two hours creating a fairy tale for him using the toy dinosaurs he gave me (which we make lots of stories about, so that isn’t unusual), and all the toys my friend’s kids own, including a princess castle, a boat, little Playskool dolls, and the dogs.

Y’all wish you were half as cool as me.

(Getting a dog to sit still long enough for you to put a dinosaur on their neck and take a picture? Much, much harder than it should be.)

This week’s diverse new releases:

Like No Other by Una LaMarche (Razorbill)

“Devorah is a Hasidic Jew, and her life is full of loving family, constant ritual, and avoiding outsiders. Jaxon is a smart, funny black teenager who has yet to see much success with girls. Both live in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, but it takes a stuck elevator during a hurricane for the two to share their first words. … LaMarche’s (Five Summers) characters are authentic and fully realized, and the dire consequences that threaten this clandestine romance make the novel read like a thriller.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

The Fire Wish by Amber Lough (Random House)

“In medieval times, during a war between the humans and jinni, sixteen-year-old Najwa lives below the world’s surface in the cavern of crystal, fire, and water, training to be a jinni who can spy on the humans living above them. But her first time above ground, she is enthralled by the beauty of the human world and intrigued by the human prince she sees in Baghdad’s palace. … Lough has created a lyrical story resounding with magic, love, and strife. … This first book in a series will hook young adult readers who grew up on tales of Aladdin and the Arabian Nights and is sure to entice others looking for a tale of romance and adventure.” — VOYA

We have to be the biggest promoters of our own stories.  Can’t  depend on CNN to promote inspiring black stories. Just wanted to share this story. 

“Graduating from university is normally an occasion for a family get-together.
And this was certainly a big celebration for the Ogunsanya quadruplets who were handed their well-deserved degrees from the same university on the same day.

The 23-year-old quads, identical sisters and the oldest by four minutes, Toks and Temi Ogunsanya, and identical brothers, Tobi and Tolu, graduated from Warwick University with Master Degrees. 



And there was not a jot of sibling rivalry as all four have landed jobs in the City already.

Toks graduated with anMEng in manufacturing and engineering and Temi, Tobi and Tolu all gained an MSC in management from Warwick Business School.

‘The fact we all chose to study at the University of Warwick was a natural decision,’ says Tobi, who thinks a bit of sibling rivalry is essential for success.

‘We are a close-knit family and were all attracted by the strength of the courses on offer.

‘We all gravitated to similar courses because we’ve always been interested in business and management and our father is a successful businessman in Nigeria.’



The quads, originally from Lagos, Nigeria, have been living in the UK since the age of seven when they began boarding schools. Since leaving university they have all landed top city jobs.

Toks is due to start working for RBS in London later this year, Temi, who interned at Santander over the summer, has been offered a permanent position with the bank, and Tolu is due to start working for one of the ‘Big 4’ accountancy firms in the City.

‘Our parents are four times as proud of us,’ added Tobi, who is mulling over two offers from two major City firms. 

‘They’ve supported us financially and have encouraged us all the way - without their help we wouldn’t be here today.’ “

{Grovel before the captain!}

Marco looked at me. “How do you grovel? I’ve never groveled before.”

I shrugged.

{Grovel!}

“We don’t know how,” I told the closest Helmacron. “I mean, you know, different folks, different customs. Maybe you could show us.”

They looked at one another. Then the one I’d spoken to said, {You may grovel in the style of your own people. Grovel as you normally grovel.}

I saw the sly gleam in Marco’s eye. “You heard the man, Cassie. Let’s grovel.”

He scooted his legs forward, lay on his back, stuck his hands behind his head, and relaxed like he was at the beach soaking up sun.

“I grovel before the mighty Helmacron captain, most mighty of the mighty, undisputed champion of the world in the dust-weight category! We grovel like the pitiful losers we are! We grovel like a guy who hasn’t got a date the day before the prom and the only girl around is the head cheerleader, that’s how much we grovel. Cassie, you could join in any time, you know.”

“We grovel … um, like grovelers.”

Marco turned his head to shoot me a disdainful look. “Oh, good groveling. Put some feeling into it.”

“I grovel like, uh … like a person who is really, really groveling,” I said lamely.

Meanwhile, Marco was, of course, getting into it. After all, he had an audience.

“O mighty Helmacron dead guy, we grovel like a video game addict trapped in an arcade without a quarter, that’s how much we grovel. You would not believe the depths of our grovelry! We grovel like a guy with a large order of fries and the only saltshaker is at the table of the school bully. We grovel -”

{Enough! Now you will tell us the location of the power source.}

So I work at a pet hospital, and we got a sick chameleon today that we had to treat. Needless to say we got a little attached to her and named her Susan. Her pillow was a cotton ball, her blankets were gauze squares and her head-warmer was a top of a glove filled with water. :)

An explanation of what radians measure: the angle in terms of the radius curved around the circle.

holy fucking shit, my entire education has just clicked.

I love seeing things click for other people (especially in math). That instant exhilaration is the reason math and science are fun for me.

white people can walk around with assault rifles in a fucking public store but the moment they see a poc’s skin they clutch their purses or lock their car doors

Because people head off to Target with AK47s around their necks right? Lol. This site never fails to amaze me.

a) did this person seriously miss out on all the freaking out the nra did when target announced that guns would not be allowed in their stores? really?

b) a vast majority of people doing these dumbass “protests” are white because as soon as you get off the color spectrum of milk to dayglo tan orange, someone’s getting shot by the police
