Sometimes I'm arrogant.

Salesguy: "Regina?" (he prounounced as reh-J-EYE-na; I prounounce it reh-JEE-nah)
Me: Yes, that's me
Salesguy: Oh, that's cool. Are you named after the beach?
Me: No, I'm named after the queen.
Salesguy: Which queen?
Me: ... All of them...
Me: Regina is Latin for 'queen'.
Salesguy: Oh. ... Okay.

Why I Love My Mother
Politician at door: (blah blah blah)...and my strong commitment to traditional family values, as my wife of 28 years will attest.
Shade's mom: Sir, I don't care if you have orgies every Tuesday night so long as you get your job done.
Shade's mom: Also, if "traditional family values" is a sneaky way of saying "anti-gay marriage stance," you should know that my daughter is bisexual, and if I never get to cry at her wedding because some law you passed made her wedding illegal, I will personally see that your wife of 28 years has a lesbian awakening in time for you to discover the virtues of traditional divorce.
Politician: ...you have yourself a nice day, m'am.
Reblogged because I love your mother too.
reblog if you have scars on your thighs.

Here are a couple from earlier this summer (when I was off of work): scitchetknits.tumblr.co… and scitchetknits.tumblr.co… Thanks for posting! I blog-stalked you and didn’t realize you had a separate craft blog, I’m SO double-following now. :) (I also might have looked you up on Ravelry. Not sayin’, just sayin’.) As to your yarns, I am impressed! I can spin thin...
scitchet said: I keep spindles around with fiber, but my wheel is often packed away. Seeing all of your lovely spinning has made me get it out and spin. So thank you for your pretty inspiration! Aw, shucks. You’re awesome. Look forward to seeing some spun work from you too! :)
scitchet liked your photo: Washed, whacked, not yet dry on Flickr. I want to say thank you, Scitchet. Seeing your ‘like’ every day of the tour has been a lovely encouragement to keep on working, keep on keepin’ on. :)
myplannedparenthood: It looks like Texas is poised to ban doctors from discussing abortion as a medical option. Take a look at the newest proposed anti-abortion rules from the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. I have GOT to get out of this state.

sodisarmingdarling: This is a thing that happened. Helen Lewis wrote an article on the New Statesman yesterday on the online harassment experienced by Anita Sarkeesian, which I’ve been following for a while. To recap: American blogger Anita Sarkeesian, who launched a Kickstarter programme to raise $6,000 to… Holy Hell. What the fuck?! I mean, seriously, what. the. fuck. This dude...
