She was a big part of my childhood/teenage years. I miss this actress with all my heart. :(
Last week, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter signed legislation that will make the city one of the most trans-friendly places in the country and even in the world.
The law passed the City Council last month and extends a host of rights to trans and gender nonconforming individuals. The most prominent aspect of the law mandates that city-owned buildings have all-gender bathrooms in addition to gendered ones, but there are other changes, too. For example:
There is more to the bill than just a neutral place to relieve oneself. Nutter, city and state lawmakers and gay rights advocates said the legislation makes Philadelphia the first city in the U.S. to offer tax credits to companies that extend the same health care coverage to LGBT employees’ domestic partners and their children as they provide to heterosexual spouses and their children.
Officials said the legislation also makes Philadelphia the first city to offer businesses tax credits as a way to encourage providing transgender-specific health benefits. …
In addition to the business tax incentives, which were backed by the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce as well as LGBT advocacy groups, and the gender-neutral restrooms, the legislation revises Philadelphia’s anti-discrimination law to include transgender people, extends decision-making rights to life partners on medical and other issues, and changes city forms and websites to offer options for same-sex couples and transgender people.
This is really just incredible. Let’s make this the standard.

Man, cats are weird…
(a collection of my favourite cat gif’s)
Um yes. I love cats so damn much!
Meet Sir Stuffington, an one eyed kitty who survived a raccoon attack and was saved by a kind person along with his 2 brothers. “His feral litter was attacked by a raccoon, mom and one baby didn’t make it,” said his foster mom.
When he was turned into Multnomah County Animal Services, they discovered that he had calicivirus, a severe flea infestation, a heart murmur, a missing eye and a possible jaw fracture that has since healed. He was left with a smile resembling a pirate – a cute pirate that he is.
He’s so cute!!!
i’m so in love!
AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH SNUGGLE ME NOW
SOOOOOOOOOO CUTE! I LOVE HIM!!!!! OMG, I LOVE HIM!!!!
This cat has been, fittingly, named Phoenix by an animal shelter after it was found badly burned and reeking of gasoline.
Aargh I want to cuddle the fuck out Phoenix.
Me too! SO CUTE! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Me: What episode of Doctor Who are you on?
Friend: Rory just died…
Me: That tells me nothing.
Why can’t my work schedule be done before Saturday every week, when our work week is Sunday to Saturday!? Plus I don’t know when or if I work Christmas Eve. I’m tired of all this laziness. Two managers can’t make a schedule? This is the time to get your shit together so we know when we can make plans with our families. AND on top of that the stupid school loan site locked me out of my account, wouldn’t send me my password and I can’t email or call anyone without having to wait 7-10 business days to hear back. My bill is due. I better not get a late fee!
