OMG hilarious.  Even if I have no idea which one I am either.
 
And to change the subject to something a little more light-hearted: there's a reason why I refer to my haircut as "queer mating plumage".

I couldn't do this (because I would die of frustration doing all that quilting without a robot-controlled longarm), but it's gorgeous.
Tomorrow, which is Saturday March 14th, 2015, is being widely touted as a super-special pi day, because it's 3/14/15 and pi is 3.1415.... (Of course this only works in the US where we use the month/day/year system. Countries that use the more logical day/month/year system have their pi day on 31/4/15. Unfortunately April only has 30 days, so I suppose they have to celebrate it on May 1st.) But back to the subject of pi day: Needless ...

This is an excellent essay.

One thing I noticed when the books were first published and became an phenom is that younger kids would go to events dressed as the character they related to.  I've seen black Hermoines and Asian Harrys.  (Gender was less malleable.)  As the kids (and the characters) got older, there was a falling-off.

"The stumbler doesn’t build her life by being better than others, but by being better than she used to be. Unexpectedly, there are transcendent moments of deep tranquillity. For most of their lives their inner and outer ambitions are strong and in balance. But eventually, at moments of rare joy, career ambitions pause, the ego rests, the stumbler looks out at a picnic or dinner or a valley and is overwhelmed by a feeling of limitless gratitude, and an acceptance of the fact that life has treated her much better than she deserves."

Sing it, sister!

Something that has happened to me multiple times in California and never anywhere else: someone checks my ID. Looks at me, looks at the card, looks at me. Hands back the card while asking, "Oh, is your husband Mexican?"

"No, this is what a Puerto Rican looks like!"

"I know that given the dismal shortage of representation of any kind of people of color in sf, I should be grateful for any Latino characters, and I am, but it’s precisely because Emilio is the only Puerto Rican that it’s important to me that he stays Puerto Rican. It’s precisely because in the future everyone is some mysterious monolithic 'Hispanic' that I want the world to know that 'Hispanic' isn’t enough." -+Isabel Schechter

This is just fascinating.  Gerbils?
 
New evidence suggests gerbils are responsible for the deaths of more than 100 million people over 400 years.
