Today I read a post which went viral enough to have the Huffington Post pick it up and you’ll find a mess of news articles and syndicated stories on what started on January 16th with:
“Feel free to sexually harass me if you’re male. You know what they say “Boys will be boys.”. Although I’m not sure any of you will want to do that since I’m not very modest, therefore not attractive.” (Huff Teen writer Marion Mayer)
This high school junior who is more consciousness and knowledgeable about gender issues then the majority of people raising those boys and girls said it and is receiving tons of positive responses. But, unfortunately it is just one
I am planning so many things this year. I have a bunch of side projects in addition to Cabin Goddess, one of which is a variation of 365Project. It is a variation of many since really it needs to be made your own. Sure there sites like http://365project.org/ and Fat Mum Slim who does monthly photo prompts: http://fatmumslim.com.au/ (which I am sure I will be using and will add January’s prompt image for you to use if you want too). But what I really want
Or #NaNoWhineMo for me!
“So there she was… chained to the bottom of a pit… in a puddle of pee. Robee was gonna get his ass kicked…”
“…as I went to grab my blanket my wrist was stopped painfully about a foot out by what seemed to be a chain!”
Sigh… I had to ask Geoff didn’t I… QUICK.. Brian, why have you forsaken me!

Welcome to the Dystopian Hop, 2013
“You are in error, no one is screaming, thank you for your cooperation”
-The Computer, “Paranoia” tabletop RPG
Many thanks to My Shelf Confessions and I am a Reader, Not a Writer for their work in getting this hop together again this year! I am reposting the infamous rant on what true dystopia is from my lovely huz Geoff. I am honored to have him remind me! Today I am offering up a copy of a Paperback copy of THREE from Jay Posey from Book Depository (INT) (see my REVIEW which was also part of my Mama’s Kitchen Mondays recipe series with some great dystopian fare!)
I was asked what I thought the Steampunk culture was all about earlier this week… I had to think because it is about many things, but if I were to nail it down to a short and sweet thing.. it would be steampunk is about creation, invention and experimenting with specific styles…
For the next three weeks I am going to be having spotlights, articles, editorials and commentaries centered around Steampunk. Much of my focus in sub-cultures has been centered around the garb (clothing), food and photography. Be it Steampunk, cyberpunk and medieval reinactment (SCA). I have always been fascinated with the ideology of “punk” defining a sub-culture. Being partnered to an actual Punk musician has allowed for a much broader learning base than just dress up, eat and be merry. Steampunk itself for me was an easy win. I already was in love with the literature. Plus, I can admit I like pretties, and there are a few pretties I am especially fond of. Hats, corsets and eye-wear (on top of my flip-flop obsession, my sunglasses and other eye-wear collection is something to behold)…
Guess what are the top three things in a steampunks steamer trunk?

Celebrating Womanhood 2013
I have thought long and hard about what to post about for my Celebrating Woman Post for 2013 and I decided to write a review, yes seriously a review! The book is Shadow on the Wall by Pavarti K. Tyler, one of the women I consider not only a friend but someone I highly admire and respect. For one, she is courageous; always willing to take chances in life no matter how hard it can be at times. I know a hint of her past, and I know her enough to know
