Welcome to the Official site for Talk Like A Pirate Day - September 19

Avast, ye scurrrvy scoundrels!  It be Talk Like A Pirate Day!

(Also Free Donut at Krispy Kreme if you talk like a pirate)

Life’s hard. It’s even harder when you’re stupid.
John Wayne (via kushandwizdom)







went to an American restaurant today!!!! ‘ello mate!!!!!! put forks in my hair to show my love for these Westerners’ food!!! Haha!!!!! Ha!!!! Ha!!! Ha!!! Ha  !

#now all of you know how fucking ridiculous you look with chopsticks in your hair  #confucious didnt die for white people to put chopsticks in their hair (via)

Confucius (at least learn to spell his name right) also saw the education of women and women’s rights in general as a terrible sin 

Hairsticks have been in use for thousands of years, and have been found in cultures of the Ancient Egyptians, ROMANS and GREEKS. Although some of these have been jeweled, luxury items, such as the gold hairsticks of Egypt, more common, wooden hairsticks have also been found in cultures such as ROME, suggesting that they were in wide use amongst people regardless of their financial standing. However, the most influential culture on modern hairsticks has been Japanese, and in particular the use of decorative Japanese Kanzashi.

Although many modern hairsticks draw more on the elaborate approach to the design of Kanzashi more than on the simpler designs for functional pins, Kanzashi are used within a far more rigid and traditional environment. Kanzashi are frequently floral in design, especially those dictated by the changing of the seasons and used by Geisha.


My entire father’s side is all from Italy and they do this. So when I decided to let my grandmother do my hair, she put the hair sticks in my hair. I put a picture of it on facebook and it somehow ended up on some “White People Stealing Culture” site. I was so angry because that was literally my culture.

There’s a difference between fucking hair sticks which are intended as hair accessories and USING CHOPSTICKS WHICH THE OP DID SPECIFICALLY CONDEMN.
noone ever said nothing about hair accessories made to be hair accessories.

Wow y’all just want to fight about everything.

My grandmother was half Cherokee and when I was a kid, she used to use hair sticks to put up my hair.  For the past 20 years while I’ve had long hair, I’ve variously used knitting needles, Bic pens, chopsticks which I bought specifically for the purpose, or even a stick I picked up out of the yard to put up my hair. Which culture was I misappropriating?  Most chopsticks available at Asian restaurants are little more than badly-machined sticks of pine or balsa wood, should we be worried about destroying their sanctity by later using them as hairsticks, too?

Get a life and find something else to obsess about, ffs.

Reasons mom is tired

I have been so exhausted this week, I’m basically sick from it.  Last evening after being out to take kids to youth group, I was almost physically sick before I got home, and I went to bed before 11PM (unheard of for me).


I worked 10.75 hours Monday and 11.25 hours Tuesday at work.  22 hours in 2 days.

Wednesday I goofed off part of the day but then went to the store, got medicine, came back home, took kids to youth group, grabbed a bite to eat then went to a couple stores with B and Di because it’s too far to come all the way home then go back to get the kids, and got home at 10PM.

Today, as part of on ongoing Beautify Our Property project, I cut down a tree with a chain saw.  Then Di and I cleared out space at the end of the house, moved a gas grill to the patio, put down railroad ties and put pallets on top of them so that once we put a carport up there, we can put storage things on the pallets.

Then we gathered up all the defunct car parts and any other thing we could find that was extraneous metal and took them to the metal recycling center.  We got enough money to buy lunch.

Then we went to the UPS store to get insurance ID cards printed and on to Kohl’s to pay my bill and get Wolf a belt since his broke this morning.  I also got a pair of black shorts on clearance + 20% more off, to wear to work, and dropped off the belt to Wolf at work.

Then we went to Dollar General Market where we got meatballs, a scented candle, personal items and some funny sleeping shorts.

I’m home.  

I’m beat.  

I need a nap before making dinner.

I need to knit, drink beer and basically sit still until work at 4PM tomorrow.

Why or I don’ wanna

Why do some knitters (or quilters or any other crafty type people) have NO imaginations?  I’ll go to Ravelry and be looking at projects made with a particular pattern, and invariably there are MANY people who used the same yarn, or the same color yarn.  Like they see the pattern made in that color and can have NO concept of making it in any other color, and it’s boring and mundane.  Or conversely, they take a complex pattern and just throw any yarn in there, a very busy stripedy yarn that completely loses the nuances of the lace or cables or whatever makes that pattern unique, and I think, why go to all that trouble to knit that pattern in a yarn that completely hides the work?

I don’t want to evaluate myself via Briggs-Myers.  There are enough labels in the world without saying, I’m an INFP or INTP or NUTT or JERK.

I don’t really want to undergo further testing to see what’s wrong with me.  I don’t really want to know, or to evaluate every damn thing I do by how many spoons it costs me (I think that’s a stupid assessment anyway.  Why not “how many cookies” or “how many chicken nuggets”).  On the one hand, I’d like to not have things get worse.  But on the other hand, I want to just live and do my stuff and rest if I’m tired, and not be like, “oh I can’t do that because I’ve got _____.”

Why are we out of peanut butter again?

Why is Fall my favorite season (or second favorite, I dunno, every year I have to evaluate whether I like Spring or Fall better and the one that wins is the one we’re in at the time), when the pessimist in me knows it’s just going to get darker and colder and become Winter, which is my LEAST favorite season?  But pumpkin, and sweaters…

miss-apple-pie replied to your photoset “WIP Wednesday Candlepower sock with picot bindoff finally blocking”

…candle power sock?

The name of the pattern is Candlepower Socks because the lace forms tessellating shapes of candle flames.  It’s a VERY easy, intuitive pattern.  The knitting goes quickly, if one has time to knit.

Candlepower sock with picot bindoff finally blocking



emotional abuse is when someone does something to hurt you, and when you express your feelings, that you’re upset, they turn it around to be something you did to hurt them and they force you to apologize for it, and your feelings, like always, are rendered invalid and silenced, forever damaging the ability to trust others with your feelings because they always are used against you.

this is important because so many people don’t know this

Or when you tell them that hurt you and they say, “I’m sorry YOU got upset.” (not, “I’m sorry what I did upset you”).  When they never admit wrongdoing, and in that, completely nullify your feelings, that is also emotional abuse.  Not simply making it your fault, but also making your feelings nothing.

The Good news and the Bad news

The Good news is:  financially, I qualify for medicaid (TNCare) so that I can get the rest of the testing I need to find out what’s wrong with me.

The Bad news is:  the state of Tennessee is not accepting applications for adults for medicaid.  Period.

The Good news is:  because of our income, my kids qualify for CHIP (children’s health insurance) medicaid.

The Bad news is, that since the state of FL *STILL* has not issued 3 of my kids their birth certificates, they don’t exist and therefore cannot get TNCare.

The “Good” news is, we are poor enough that we all qualify for free healthcare or at least we are exempt from penalty for not having health insurance

The Bad news is that we cannot GET the free healthcare.
