Link via [livejournal.com profile] fatshionista: When Doctors Judge Their Obese Patients

This article actually made me want to cry, because I've heard this same story before from so many fellow fatties. I've lived this story. But this is the first time I've heard it from a sympathetic doctor, and if at least one person gets it, maybe there's a little bit of hope that more will follow.

I don't read a lot of poetry, but sometimes I come across something that just appeals to me. This is one of those:

homage to my hips
by Lucille Clifton

these hips are big hips
they need space to
move around in.
they don't fit into little
petty places. these hips
are free hips.
they don't like to be held back.
these hips have never been enslaved,
they go where they want to go
they do what they want to do.
these hips are mighty hips.
these hips are magic hips.
i have known them
to put a spell on a man and
spin him like a top!

David Hewlett on the Stargate auction:

dhewlett: Okay, here's the plan: We buy everything, put it all back together, and then we make the Stargate Atlantis movie. http://bit.ly/8qJ2tQ

Can we? Please, please, please?

Also this:

dhewlett: @Bad_Oyster Let it be known that I had to seek out and purchase my own orange fleecey. I don't have the one from Stargate Atlantis pilot.

FLEEEEECE! *flails* David, I love you forever and ever, Amen.

1. Thank you [livejournal.com profile] winter_elf for the card and the pictures of Joe and his very lickable neck!

2. Thank you [livejournal.com profile] lavvyan for the [livejournal.com profile] sga_santa story That Comfort Thing! It was everything I wanted!

2,5. I wrote Hair Today for [livejournal.com profile] temaris. I'll repost it here in a little while so I can fix a couple of typos that sneaked in under the radar. Tricky little things those typos...

3. Manifesto for 2010 )

This was what we discussed on our lunch break today at work. I don't know anything about math, but you have to admit it's a little bit cool that a sixteen-year-old kid manages to solve a problem that's had mathematicians puzzled for 300 years.

(The kid in question lives in the town where I work. My co-worker went to the same school he goes to. We're all pretty proud at the moment.)

Today is, as I've already said, Towel Day.

What today also is, is the anniversary of The Glorious Revolution of the Twenty-Fifth of May. I'd almost forgotten about it until I started re-reading the book a few days ago.

Sir Terry Pratchett is one of my favourite writers and human beings, and a source of much inspiration. In 2007, he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. So, in Terry's honour, I'd like to drop a few links that you might want to check out.

For you Brits, I'd like to point you in the direction of the Alzheimer's Research Trust, of which Terry is a patron.

For my fellow Swedes, there's Alzheimerfonden.

And for my American friends, there's the Alzheimer's Association.

Just saying...

I wish I had the time to find the corresponding organisation for everyone on the almighty f-list, but you guys know how to use Google, right?

So, apparently Amazon has made it so that various GLBT, erotica and romance literature with 'adult content' won't show up in searches and have been stripped of their sales ranking. We do not like this at all.

It's two o'clock in the morning where I am and my brain is too mushy to get into the issure for real. I'm sure your f-list is full of posts of explanation. I know for sure that mine is. Will read your posts tomorrow when I'm awake.

I'll just let Rodney speak for me:

ETA: There is also this at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books
